With a highly rated public school system (the number one draw for most young parents exiting New York City); a vibrant, award-winning downtown; and accessibility to Newark International Airport and the New Jersey Shore, Westfield, New Jersey offers something for everyone. With a significant supply of transitional style homes (ie: homes that are a mix of traditional and modern), Westfield is in high demand for those leaving New York City in search of more living space — both indoors and outdoors. (Bonus points if the home has a pool, explains one of Coldwell Banker’s top brokers, Frank Isoldi.)
A 2nd-generation, lifelong resident of Westfield with more than 34 years of real estate experience, Isoldi has long championed his community and the extensive offerings it provides to residents. His local philanthropic endeavors include serving as Vice President of the Connie Dwyer Breast Cancer Foundation, as well as sitting on the Board of Trustees for Trinitas Hospital and the 200 Club of Union County. From serving as a Coldwell Banker Global Luxury Ambassador to supporting newly certified agents to teaching real estate courses and conducting referrals across the country, Isoldi is an innovative industry leader who is commonly tapped for his extensive knowledge of Westfield and its real estate values.
“Having sat on the town’s zoning board, I add good value to a buyer looking to build or add on to their home,” Isoldi says. “My goal is to offer a true white glove experience from the listing presentation to the closing.”
While the neighborhood’s turn-of-the-century housing stock remains tight on inventory, the independent broker has noticed a few notable market trends in the last decade. “In Westfield, outdoor living spaces have become paramount — including kitchens, sitting areas with fireplaces and pools,” he notes, of homes like this one. Residents, especially migrating New Yorkers, are looking to soak up the expansive outdoors while having immediate access to their favorite metropolis.
A backyard pool is just one of the many amenities in Isoldi’s Scotch Plains listing.
Isoldi also adds, “Buyers are looking for more overall square footage with home offices, spa-like bathrooms, home gyms and theaters at the top of many client lists.” Last year, Isoldi sold two homes with over $2,000,000 price tags — each offering the over-the-top amenities mentioned above, in addition to a full arcade and a golf simulation room.
Isoldi currently represents two Westfield listings that boast unique features to consider. One sits on over 4 acres in Scotch Plains (pool shown above) featuring a 5-car garage space ideal for the ultimate car enthusiast listed at $1.395 milion.
This Victorian home, listed by Isoldi, includes an open side porch, decorative glass windows, and memorable moldings and trims.
In the heart of town, you’ll find a second available listing from Isoldi for $1.5 million. The exquisite Victorian blends the charm of the past with modern-day conveniences. Some of the many highlights include an open side porch, a new primary bedroom suite, many new windows, beamed ceilings, several decorative glass windows and gorgeous trims and moldings throughout.
