I love my work as a real estate professional because my clients are so diverse and so are the ways I serve you. I provide specialized attention, whether you’re looking to buy your first home or downsize from your home of 20 years. I was recently named KW’s Top #7 agent in volume sales in the New York Tristate Region.
I provide a concierge service and will always listen closely to your needs. It’s not simply a transaction foe me; it’s a relationship.
I include extensive custom staging as part of the package when I list a home. Because I’m also a developer, and renovate and build homes, I can accurately estimate the cost of any improvements you are considering. My expertise will help you determine the true price of selling or purchasing your home.
Prior to joining the real estate industry, I spent 25 years in the entertainment industry. I was in charge of Programming/Production for Food Network for a decade, and spent time at MTV, Nickelodeon, the BBC and National Geographic. I am a strong negotiator and will help you get the best deal possible.
I pride myself on providing the best possible service, and can make the buying and selling process smooth and smart. I look forward to hearing from you.
"Eileen was fantastic!! She was helpful every step of the way, from narrowing our search to certain towns, discussing our needs and suggesting areas that fit our price points, to negotiating the contract. I would recommend Eileen to any person looking got a realtor."
"Eileen is the very best agent I have ever worked with. She was knowledgeable about the neighborhoods we were looking in. She was very upfront and honest about everything. I would not go through the process with anyone else."

"Eileen was so responsive and professional throughout our buying and selling process. She always listened carefully to make sure she understood our needs and then worked so hard for us to ensure we found the perfect new home (we were downsizing). She made sure that the home we were selling was presented in the best way to show off its charms and she was diligent in ensuring everything was considered and well managed right up to (and even after) we closed. We loved working with her and we thoroughly recommend her!"
"Eileen was my realtor, advocate (and sometimes my shrink :) as I made a significant move from the home I raised my family in to a smaller home 10 minutes away. She told me what I needed to spend money on and what I didn't. And when it came to showing me houses, she picked houses specifically based on my criteria. Some of my friends say their realtors put them on a "feed" with all houses in a certain range and zip code. That would have driven me nuts. And then when I found the perfect house, she walked through and gave me ideas on how I might use the house and what furniture I had would fit where. I love my new home. I wish I had moved sooner. And I could not recommend Eileen Opatut highly enough."

"As first time home buyers, my husband and I couldn't have asked for a better agent than Eileen. We were on the fence about buying something renovated vs buying and renovating ourselves. Eileen educated us every step of the way. She has an amazing eye for potential in a house, but also knew when to tell us to walk away. In the end, Eileen helped us find our dream home in a town that was outside of her typical territory. She learned the market in Ridgewood for us, and in the end negotiated with a FSBO deal with a difficult owner. Eileen worked tirelessly to get us our home for a price that we could afford. Beyond her work ethic, Eileen is a tremendously kind and interesting person who cares so much about her clients. I would recommend Eileen to anyone and everyone. She is by far the best!"
"To say that my wife and I were very pleased with what Eileen did for us would be a vast understatement. There are many levels involved in ones search for a home. It starts with the exploration of what it is you are truly looking for not just at present but for the future. Eileen really got to know us and truly helped us explore and work through the many options available. With that understanding she was able to guide us as to how each would effect us not just now but in the future. She really has a wonderful understanding of all aspects of the market in our area; what's available and when and how to negotiate based on her experience and the present climate and nature of our local market at a given time. Eileen also as a vast knowledge about building and renovating along with the costs involved which proved enormously helpful in how practical our thoughts were about what we had wanted to do with the house we eventually bought. In one instance we had found a house that seemed to suit ou"
"We could not have asked for a better experience for the process of fishing a new home. Eileen had amazing knowledge of the market, the area, and the kind of place that we needed as family. Her guidance was impeccable, her responsiveness and willingness to work with on our schedules as amazing and just generally she is a delight to work with."
"Eileen did a wonderful job in helping us rent our large Victorian house. We had some difficult requirements to work with and she handled them effortlessly in finding a tenant. She was equally helpful in the negotiation of the lease and handling the details as the tenant moved in."
"Eileen took the time to understand our preferences early on, and she was diligent about only sending us properties that she thought we would like. She opened our eyes to different areas, and was very knowledgeable about the various neighborhoods we considered. She has been by our side throughout the house-buying process, and has been our advocate as we navigate the sensitive house inspection landscape. We would recommend her any day of the week!"
"We were incredibly fortunate to have Eileen Opatut as our Realtor. She guided us through what could have and should have been an overwhelming process. We were a Montclair based, kids out of the house, downsizing couple who were unsure of where, how and when to move. We knew it was "time" but were up in the air as to what type of "next life chapter" we wanted. Eileen was imminently patient with us. She took the time to really talk with us, understand our needs and showed us a ton of houses, condos, and apartments all in service of finding that just right fit. She was on top of every new listing that came up and kept us hopping with a lot to think about. She was guiding without being pushy and her knowledge of the market and process paid off for us. We are so happy in our new home and could not have been happier with our Realtor."
"Eileen and her team helped us make a move from Los Angeles to New Jersey and spent an enormous amount of time giving us the history of the different areas of North New Jersey and driving us - and our infant - around the areas until we found our new home. She and the team are knowledgeable and trust-worthy; and she has a great design eye."
"Eileen and her team helped make our move across the country as seamless and enjoyable as possible. She took great care of us, got to know our interests and sensibilities and found us a wonderful home. She is simply the best."
"Eileen is terrific. She and her team helped me sell my Montclair home, giving excellent advice and guidance on everything from staging to pricing. I recommend her highly."
