More about Jackie Safran
Real estate is not a matter of leads and appointments and how many sales . It’s not even a matter of the quality of my marketing materials or my service response. Real estate is a matter of who I am, what my attitude is and how dedicated I am to personal excellence. It’s how responsible I am for the actions that I take and how sincere I am about helping home owners and home buyers win for themselves so that ultimately I can wini both for them and for myself. That’s not a strategy – it’s a way of life, a code to live by.
Education and Training
Education is something to be sought and enjoyed. I was educated in London, England and went through the system which is slightly different to the American one. I attended a private school, which was not of such a high standard that it was considered a "Public School" - which are Britain's top private schools!! You see, I told you it was different.
I then went on to attend a Grammar School which simply means that I took an exam at 11 years of age that directed me to the schools that fed into the British University system. After that I attended Southwark College which was an offshoot of London University. I'm not sure that any of this means much to someone residing in the United States.
However, as a Realtor I very believe that continuing education in real estate matters is very important and I attend as many courses and conferences as I am able to keep me updated. I love technology and take time out during the year to attend conventions for Realtors who are truly trying to use technology in their business to give their clients the best service possible.
I am a member of Cyberstars International, a group of 200 privately invited Realtors from across the country who come together to share their knowledge of the latest technology ideas in the real estate field. I attend their 3 day conference once a year and always learn new and exciting ideas.
I have also earned theCertified Residential Specialist Designation. This is earned by Realtors® who have completed extensive training and by demonstrating significant experience in managing real estate transactions. Less than 4% of the more than 1 million Realtors® working today can call themselves a CRS Designee. This group represents the elite performers in residential real estate.

Areas of Expertise
I have been a residential Realtor for over 20 years. During that time I have experienced many different markets. I specialize in working with both sellers and buyers. I work with everyone from first time buyers to luxury home clients. I am located in Westfield NJ and work both in Union County and Middlesex County.
Communities I Serve
Warren and Watchung
Middlesex and Union Counties
I was born and raised in London, England (which explains the funny accent). After school, I worked in the British Foreign Service and took postings in Santiago, Chile and the United Kingdom Mission to the United Nations in New York. After marrying an American (who really is a rocket scientist!), I moved to New Jersey, in 1987 and now reside here with my husband and dog. I have an adult son who currently lives in Manhattan.
I have moved homes 15 times, including 3 international relocations, so I can well understand the process and emotions involved in moving around the world or just down the block.
