Helped me buy home
Lee Parker and her husband Bruce expertly guided us through the home buying process in New Jersey. Lee was available nearly 24/7 for questions, showings, and negotiations. Lee gave excellent insight into the local market and helped give perspective on what would be important for resale when we are ready to move again. She was truly an invaluable resource from start to finish; she and Bruce were referred to us by a friend and we wouldn't hesitate to do the same for others.

Bruce is clearly a leader in New Jersey real estate and has extensive experience. He is helpful in all areas of the field; including buying a home, selling, foreclosures and short sales. It has been a privilege to learn from him, and I look forward to using his office for my future investments.

Bruce did a great job selling our home in Twin Brooks. We were faced with some repair and inspection issues that Bruce was able to manage for us. Great negotiation skills and quick communicator. We were able to stay at our home in Florida while Bruce took care of the transaction. We would recommend him to anyone looking to sell their home.

I have bought and sold several homes and can honestly say that Bruce Parker, and his wife Lee, are the best realtors I have ever worked with. This was a difficult sale for several reasons; it was part of a 1031 exchange, I don't live in the area, and there was also had a rather complicated emotional aspect to it. Bruce and Lee were there for us through it all. They are true professionals with a warm, compassionate personality that made working with them a pleasure. I would highly recommend them and will definitely use them again. Less ... More

We first called Bruce, who was very progressional. He put us in touch with his wife, Lee and we worked primarily with her from then on in. Lee was fantastic. We represented a particularly difficult case as we were from out of state, and first home buyers. Lee did a great job of showing us around a handful of houses in a single day. We told her what we liked and what we didn't like. She listened to us, which showed in the options she presented to us. She helped us all the way through the process: from putting an offer on to closing. Because we were from out of town, most of our communication was over the phone. Lee went above and beyond and was essentially on call for us any time we had a question. She helped with letting contractors in for obtaining quotes. In fact, she even called the contractors if we asked her to. She also arranged for Bruce to be available the day our furniture arrived, which was three days ahead of us, to help move our furniture inside. She also helped with practical advice such as how to change over the utilities etc., which I know I probably could have just googled, but calling Lee was so much less confusing. On the day of closing, Lee and Bruce bought us some champagne to celebrate, which was a really nice touch. Buying a home is complicated. It occupies more brain space than it really should, but Lee - with the help of Bruce - made this time hassle free and fun. We have already recommended Lee to our friends, and when the dust settles we'll be contacting her again for future properties. Less ... More

Bruce and his wife Lee were very helpful and very patient with me as a first time buyer. I referred my parents to him and he helped them sell and buy and went the extra mile when my dad got sick. Very special people!!

It took five years to find the right house. Lesser brokers would have given up but Bruce Parker took me to showings, guided me to open houses, and sent me listing he thought might suit. His memory for what I liked and disliked was outstanding. He knew what would not work for me and excluded listings, saving me time and effort. He showed me other agents listings, even though it reprsented a loss to him, because his goal was to help me find the right house. WHen we found the very house I had been looking for, his ability really kicked in. He knew the exact value of the house, and suggested offers and counter offers that got the deal done. His knowledge of each party, from inspectors, termites, insurance and service providers was absolutely wonderful. From the first call his help was outstanding. I got the right house at a great price, and without his help, over five years, it really would not have happened. Bruce was truly jerseys best. Less ... More

Bruce and Lee Parker are hands down the most professional real estate agents we have ever come across. They went above and beyond to answer all of our questions and concerns which made the already stressful process of buying a house that much easier. We had a very difficult seller and Lee and Bruce were able to accommodate both parties and help ease and smooth the process. They are committed to helping their clients even if it means going completely out of their way to do so. I can't tell you how appreciative we are of their hard work and dedication and I would absolutely recommend working with them.You will not be disappointed choosing to work with this awesome team!

Bruce Parker helped us sell our house in Oct' 2014. He is very knowledgeable about the real estate market and gave us very professional advice each step of the way in our home selling experience. I would definitely recommend him to any one looking for a real estate broker to buy/sell their house.

I must say that having Bruce as my realtor was a truly rewarding experience. Having relocated to another state, the entire process of the sale of my property took place in my absence. There was not a moment that I had to worry about the proceedings taking place. My mind was totally at ease knowing that whenever anything in relation to the property came up I could count on Bruce to take care of things. Everything was handled in a timely manner and I was able to get the sale of my property finalized knowing that even though I was not present for the closing everything would go smoothly. I am truly appreciative of everything Bruce has done in helping me to get my property sold from the initial proceedings to the completion at closing. Less ... More

The team of Bruce and Lee Parker care about their customers and go all out to help. We had a rough time selling in our price range, and the Parkers understood the intricacies of the local market to get our property sold. They were hands on. You can't say that about every realtor. Their understanding of our neighborhood area -- including their ability to provide comparable comps of other properties similar to our own -- went a long way toward getting our property closed.

Buying a house is one of the most stressful times in your life. Bruce made the experience so easy with knowing our needs/wants & budget upfront. We looked at a total of five houses over one weekend and put an offer in on one immediately. With quick negotiations, we got the house we wanted within hours!

This is my first time dealing with Bruce Parker, in my opinion, by far, he's the most knowledgeable and honest real estate professional I have dealt with. All questions answered, nothing held back. I am very happy that Bruce is able to show me the houses I am looking for in the Old Bridge section of NJ, quickly answers my calls, and always addressed any concerns in question. He's like a human computer, knows everything about the houses, the neighborhood, the school systems, and where to chill out. Less ... More

Bruce and his office was very helpful and knowledgeable through the whole process. For me, communication is key, and I never wondered what was going on or needed to reach out to Bruce to find out. He always kept me "in the loop" and it was appreciated. He is an expert in the Real Estate market for Highland Park, New Brunswick, and the immediate area. I highly recommend him.

Helped me find tenant for rental
I found out Bruce is very well respected in the field. I found Bruce had become like a friend who was working for me!! A new law was enacted in Edison (for rentals) and Bruce found out about it with me and he did all that he could to make my life easier without compromising the situation. The law was followed and it all worked out. His advice was right on and I am happy to have Bruce as my contact and my agent and would recommend him.

Bruce was an excellent help in locating us with exactly what we were looking for. My family and I were looking for a empty lot in a specific area and Bruce knew just where to find it. He was also very attentive to our needs and concerns, didn't try to force us into just anything. We are ecstatic with our new lot and can not wait to start building our new home.
