When listing an estate property and a need to remove and potentially sell personal property, you may want to call in the experts. Lori Fedkenheuer, NCJAR Affiliate of the Magnusson Group, helps Realtors® get their listings in marketable condition. The process often begins with the appraisal of art, antiques, jewelry, luxury goods, and home furnishings and concludes with a broom-swept home ready for its new owner. Utilizing a combination of auction, gallery, private sale, and "Estate" Sale methods, Magnusson connects their loyal buyers with their clients' vetted collections.
Like so many small businesses around the country, The Magnusson Group found itself adapting to a new standard of professional practices in the age of COVID-19. Their goal was to remain efficient and safe while providing the highest level of quality service to their trusted clients and customers. As an industry leader, they were motivated by both creativity and sustainability while maintaining COVID-19 protocols. Taking cues from the current landscape, they embraced technology to reinvigorate their repertoire. They augmented their online presence in the form of sales (both estate and auction), virtual appraisals, and virtual consignments. They have not looked back, and business continues to boom both on and offline.
NAR’s Board of Directors strengthened REALTORS®’ commitment to upholding fair housing ideals, approving a series of recommendations from NAR’s Professional Standards Committee that extend the application of Article 10 of the Code of Ethics to discriminatory speech and conduct outside of members’ real estate practices.
Article 10 prohibits REALTORS® from discriminating on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, national origin, sexual orientation, or gender identity in the provision of professional services and in employment practices. The Board approved a new Standard of Practice under the Article, 10-5, that states, “REALTORS® must not use harassing speech, hate speech, epithets, or slurs” against members of those protected classes.
NCJAR's YPN has partnered with Backpacks for Life to Raise $10,000 toward manufacturing masks for those serving on the front lines at Hospitals, VA Hospitals, and Veteran Shelters. A small donation of $3.80 covers the cost of materials, labor & distribution for ONE mask. They have sourced additional materials to make 150,000 masks, but they need OUR help to get them there.
When you support this campaign, you help local U.S. manufacturers, veteran-owned small businesses and help keep individuals employed!
Please Support NCJAR's YPN Veteran Mask Drive Today! Masks will be distributed to a variety of organizations chosen by the YPN.
Thank you, NCJAR Members, for participating in NCJAR’s Virtual Turkey Drive through our partnership with You Give Goods! We exceeded our goal by raising over 10,300 pounds of fresh turkeys and produce for the Community Food Bank of NJ (CFBNJ) to provide a Thanksgiving meal to New Jersey families in need. Covid-19 has made the demand for food even more significant across the nation. Your generosity will make a real difference this Thanksgiving!
Thank you again, NCJAR Members, for making Thanksgiving possible for approximately 8,633 NJ families struggling with food insecurity!

New Jersey Realtors® received guidance from the governor's office regarding Executive Order 192, which took effect this morning at 6 a.m. The EO mandates employers follow health and safety standards to protect all New Jersey’s workers at work during the pandemic.
The EO does not apply to independent contractors that have 1099 status. However, at open houses, sanitation materials must be provided to visitors. Open house visitors are required to wear cloth or disposable face masks while on the premises, in accordance with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendations. There are exceptions including for children under the age of 2 and individuals with certain disabilities. Please see EO 192 for details.
Employers must follow health and safety practices such as requiring six feet be maintained between individuals, requiring masks be worn, providing sanitation materials, regularly washing hands, routinely disinfecting high touch areas, and conducting daily health checks. For more information on the safety practices click here.
