John Frenzer is approaching his 15th year anniversary with Halstead, now in Montclair, NJ and as a broker in New York City (to reach his New York page click here).

A long-time NYC resident, John is the great-grandson of immigrants - his grandfather John Quinn was born at home on East 47th Street in 1886. Real estate became the family business. Today, John carries on a tradition of excellence with the utmost discretion in service of notable clients that include Grammy, Tony, and Academy Award winners as well as the elite of the financial services and advertising industries.

Many of those same clients looked to John for assistance in their transitions into the leafy towns of the Montclair area where he is a homeowner raising his two young children. An expert on the public school system and Board Member of an esteemed Reggio-Emilia nursery school, John was able to guide them into a new phase of suburban life with a cosmopolitan identity. As Halstead expanded into Hoboken, NJ John was fully able to assist his Montclair bound clients in their home purchases, quietly honing new skills and forging great relationships while Halstead carefully planned a formal expansion west.

Licensed in both states, John is equally fluent in the NYC coop and condo application process and in the challenges in buying and selling large suburban luxury homes in NJ. This very rare set of qualifications was garnered from years of service and support to his client’s evolving needs.

John is very grateful for the many kind referrals of his loyal client base:

John Frenzer is the most erudite, articulate and networked broker we have ever worked with. He not only gave us a whole analysis of the pros and cons of each house we looked at and recommended how to improve the aesthetics with minor improvements and which trees and bushes to purchase, he also put us in touch with families in the neighborhood to help us understand the school system. He is super knowledgeable and bright, as well as patient, insightful and extremely responsive and accountable. What more could you ask for? -Deborah S., Montclair

John was incredibly helpful and efficient in our major move from Chicago to the South Orange/Maplewood NJ area. He took great care to show us only properties that fit our criteria and was remarkably patient with our entire relocation process and a very challenging close. John understands what families need and how to compassionately help create a new home. I highly recommend his services for a great real estate experience. -Dan and Leanne P., South Orange

John is an amazing broker. He is the best combination of professional and personable. We cannot recommend him enough. He took the time to understand what our family needed and put in the extra effort to help find us our perfect home. I consider John the best I have ever worked with and now we are happy to call him a valued neighbor and friend. Great person and great broker! – David and Danielle B., Montclair
