Can I Take That Wall Down?

With open concept being as popular as it is, one of the most common questions we get when showing houses is “Can I take that wall down?” As Realtors, our advice is to consult with a contractor or architect. At Hearth Realty Group we are fortunate enough to have an architect who is also Realtor on staff, Maplewood resident Camilla Flannery owner of Studio Vert Architecture. Camilla has helped hundreds of local residents with renovation projects big and small. So we asked Cami to share how she answers the question:

“Many of the houses in SOMA were built in the 1920’s with formal, compartmentalized spaces. I have a great appreciation for the quality of the framing in these older houses, but the small rooms and divided spaces on the first floor most often no longer work for current family lifestyles. Many of my clients come to me wanting to create an open floorplan but are concerned about structural constraints.

My answer to them is: there are no constraints if the load is properly supported. I’ve opened up entire first floors with nothing but the center fireplace remaining and designed basements removing all the columns. So rest assured, with the proper structure, you can achieve most anything in the design of your remodel. It’s very important to never attempt to remove a wall without the guidance of a licensed contractor, engineer or architect.”

Whether you’re considering updates or changes to your current home, in the process of buying a home and need some design help or you’re in a “Love It or List It” phase, please reach out to Camilla Flannery for a consultation.

Hearth Realty Group is the #1 Independent Real Estate Agency in SOMA. We are a technology driven boutique real estate agency made up of experienced service-focused local experts who support our clients beyond the transaction. We strive to have a meaningful impact on the communities we serve through volunteer work and financial contributions to local charities. #LiveLocalSellLocal

Hearth Realty Group Marks the One Year Anniversary of its Verona Office

Verona, NJ, January 7, 2019—Hearth Realty Group, New Jersey’s fastest growing indie real estate
brokerage, is celebrating the one-year anniversary of the Verona office. To commemorate the occasion
with an official ribbon cutting ceremony, Verona Mayor Kevin Ryan, Director of Administration &
Economic Development Steven Neale, and Councilman Jack McEvoy visited the office to congratulate
the team for their contribution to the community. Located at 460 Bloomfield Avenue, the office space is
open and inviting, with ample parking for prospective clients.

Since opening in 2017, Hearth has grown to 18 team members, solidifying a #1 spot as the leading
independent agency in Verona. Founded by Josh Jacobs, a lifelong New Jersey resident who is also the
broker of record, the agency is part real estate brokerage and part tech startup, making Hearth an
industry leader in technology innovation.

“We super-serve our clients by developing custom applications and partnering with emerging
technology platforms,” said Jacobs. “As an indie brokerage we have the freedom and flexibility to
quickly adapt to a constantly changing technology landscape, and the clients that we serve recognize
and appreciate the difference we bring to the table.”

In addition to the Verona office, Hearth recently opened a second location in South Orange.
“I have been fortunate enough to open two real estate offices in two amazing New Jersey communities,
Verona and South Orange/Maplewood,” said Jacobs. “Both communities have so much to offer from
their proximity to New York and easy commuting options to fantastic schools, parks, restaurants and
shops.”

Jacobs calls his agents, most of whom live in the communities they serve, the hardest working, most
dedicated, ethical, honest, fun, generous and respected in the business.

The Hearth Realty Group team includes the following agents: Susie Adamson, Marika Autrand, Juan
Carlos Fernandez, Rodney Fontil, Jennifer Greenberg, Lindy Huang-Hoelscher, Williams Jones Jr, Daria
Knarvik, Fran Lichtman, Karen Lonergan, Kerry Metzger, Randy Rabney, Bonnie Ramsey, Shannon

Hearth Realty Group is Now the Leading Listing Office in South Orange
