Newsweek just published its annual list of the best public high schools in the country, and no surprise, 51 of them are right here in New Jersey!

Newsweek looked at six measurements and weighted them to come up with a “college readiness index.” 1. Holding Power 2. Ratio of Counselors to Students 3. Weights SAT/ACT 4. Weighted AP 5. Graduation Rate 6. College Enrollment Rate The rankings are meant to show how well high schools do at preparing students for college.

The Mid-Town Direct Train Line towns are fortunate to have some of the best schools not only in the state of NJ, but in the country. Chatham, Westfield, Summit, Madison, Berkeley Heights, Mountainside and Livingston. These towns also boast some of the highest real estate values in our area, which is no surprise as schools and commute are the main driving factors in our communities.

Missing from the list this year is Millburn/Short Hills. In a message to the community from the superintendent, the town was left of the list in 2016 because they missed the email and did not submit an application. They have since changed their email security to make sure something like this does not happen in the future. Other notable towns that typically make the listing that are missing include Princeton, West Windsor, Tenafly, Mountain Lakes, New Providence.

Below is a list of a few of the NJ top ranking schools, in the towns the Sue Adler Team is so proud to serve:

As the summer rolls along, the real estate market is quietly moving in the background. While many sellers decide to take their homes off of the summer off or rent them when they hadn’t sold in the busy spring market, this summer, we are seeing a very busy June and July for homes going under contract and an uptick in showings in all price points.

What does this mean to you, the buyer or seller?

1)  Deal are being made. Buyers took a long time to make a decision this season and they are now committing as we get closer to the start of the school season.   These buyers are very serious, and understand that now is the time to buy as interest rates are close to historic lows and in many segments of the market, prices have come down to a new level where buyers are now seeing the value.

2) Sellers are ready to sell.  The motivated Sellers have listened to their feedback and have reduced their prices to a level that is within negotiating range. These sellers are willing to entertain a reasonable offer from a ready, willing an able buyer, and are willing to sell at what the market can bear.  We hear it over and over again, “Bring us an offer that we can negotiate.” We are encouraging our buyers to write an offer if they have interest even if they do not see value in the current asking price. If the house is overpriced, and not receiving offers, buyers feel the seller is not motivated, and therefore feels they can wait, however with the school year fast approaching, we are seeing lower offers being presented, and the motivated sellers are very receptive to negotiating, assuming the buyers are qualifed and interested in making it work.

We hear it over and over again, “Bring us an offer that we can negotiate.” We encourage our Buyers to make their offer if they have interest, even if they do not see value in the current asking price.

3) The Market is Busy. The market continues to be busy despite the rumors. While we see the days on the market increasing, we are also seeing a steady level of under contract homes. In the month of June, all but 2 towns reached the same number of under contracts in the month of June as they did in 2015, the only difference was on average a days on market count that was 7 days longer in 2016.

Each member of The Sue Adler Team is an expert in navigating this market and helping our clients get the best possible results. Call us at 973-936-9129 and let us put our skills to work for you. Whether you’re selling or purchasing a home, big or small, we sell them all, and are here to take the stress out of it for you.

New Jersey

Locals have always known it, but now others do too — New Jersey has some of the best towns around!

Niche.com recently compiled a list of the best places in the country to raise a family, and New Jersey towns earned more than a few spots. The lists were created using information about public schools, crime rates, cost of living and family-friendly amenities. Data was pulled from the U.S. Census, FBI, BLS, CDC and other sources, according to Niche.

Sue Adler is proud to serve these high-ranking towns:

Short Hills earned the number one spot of all New Jersey towns. Short Hills is a suburb in New Jersey with 12,729 residents. It has very high home values, very high rent costs, and very low unemployment levels. Its citizens generally have very high education levels and very high income levels. Short Hills is one of the most sought-after towns in the country, and with good reason. The area boasts beautiful homes, excellent schools, abundant natural space, and a short commute to Manhattan. Foodies will delight in the abundance of excellent dining options in the area, and, whether you are looking for designer labels, household goods or farm fresh produce, you’ll have plenty of options. Short Hills also has more artists, designers, and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Short Hills’s character.

Millburn Township follows soon after, in the number six spot. Millburn Township is a suburb in New Jersey with 20,200 residents. It has very high home values, very high rent costs, and low unemployment levels. Its citizens generally have very high education levels and very high income levels. In 2007 Millburn celebrated 150 years as an incorporated town with festivities and a grand parade. The aleictorian, Italianate, Tudor and Colonial homes in this historic part of town set the tone for the comfortable suburb of modern day Millburn. Stewart Hartshorn acquired 1552 acres to build his ideal village called Short Hills, the first planned commuter suburb in America.  Hartshorn, who had made his fortune in spring roller blinds, wanted to create “a harmonious community for people who appreciate nature” and a place “where natural beauty would not be destroyed by real estate developments, and where people of congenial tastes could dwell together.”  His vision is still much of what Millburn/Short Hills is today.

Chatham earned the number seven spot. Chatham is a suburb in New Jersey with 9,000 residents. It has very high home values, very high rent costs, and very low unemployment levels. Its citizens generally have very high education levels and very high income levels. The attractive areas of Chatham Borough neighboring Chatham Township share a common heritage and are often referred to as Chatham, or The Chathams. Chatham has been named one of the top ten places to live in the United States by Money Magazine.

New Providence checks in at number eleven. New Providence is a suburb in New Jersey with 12,314 residents. It has very high home values, very high rent costs, and low unemployment levels. Its citizens generally have very high education levels and very high income levels. New Providence offers a combination of the old and the new, where contemporary living is interspersed with traditional and period structures and history from its past.  Nestled in the Watchung Mountains, offering a serene and peaceful setting, it’s a real medley of architecture and design.

Livingston is ranked at number 23. Livingston Township is a suburb in New Jersey with 29,617 residents. It has very high home values, very high rent costs, and low unemployment levels. Its citizens generally have very high education levels and very high income levels. Easy access to NYC, reasonable prices (especially compared to some of the train-line towns), and wonderful schools make Livingston a great place to live.

Summit is ranked at 25. Summit is a suburb in New Jersey with 21,826 residents. It has very high home values, very high rent costs, and low unemployment levels. Its citizens generally have very high education levels and very high income levels. Summit is known for having one of the best upscale town centers in the area. Living within walking distance of this town is amazing. The energetic town of Summit, NJ is surrounded by incredible real estate: absolutely exquisite estate homes, charming family homes and convenient, cozy town homes and condominiums. Summit has so much to offer its residents: convenient transportation to New York City, award-winning schools, plentiful recreational activities and programs, and a rich history! It is no surprise that so many people choose to call Summit home.

The Florham Park 4th of July Parade is one of the oldest parades in New Jersey. Initiated in 1894, it was reinstated by the Florham Park Volunteer Fire Department in 1957 and in 1979 a committee was organized to continue this proud day.

Rides are 3 tickets each. Refreshments will be in abundance for the following costs: hamburgers – 3 tickets, hot dogs – 2 tickets, pretzels – 1 ticket, soda /water – 1 ticket, and beer – 3 tickets each. Tickets can be purchased at designated areas for $1.00 each. In addition, popcorn, cotton candy, ice cream, and Italian ice will be available as cash sales only.

From 1-3 p.m., the Little Red Schoolhouse will be open for visitors.

The celebration of July 4th will end with a spectacular fireworks display at sunset, with entertainment by Lonnie Youngblood beginning at 8:15. Refreshments will be available during the fireworks presentation.

The raindate for the Florham Park 4th of July celebration will be July 5th.

Kent PlaceKent Place college-preparatory school for girls located in gorgeous Summit NJ announced its Kent Place Space Program in late February this year.

This autumn, an experiment from the school will be joining astronauts on the International Space Station (ISS)!

Students from grades 5 through 12 designed their projects and wrote proposals for various experiments to be completed at the ISS. The young scientists created small teams to collaborate on projects and came up with questions and hypothesis that analyzed chemical, physical, and biological materials in space.

Kent Place established the program through the Student Spaceflight Experiments Program, which is tied to the National Center for Earth and Space Science Education and NanoRacks, LLC.–which is partnered with NASA.

The program hoped to introduce the most realistic research experience possible–aiming to replicate the complex process of writing proposals that are necessary to launch such experiments. Not only were these young women experiencing first hand what it is like to begin research in STEM fields, they were also exposed to the competition that comes with such limited resources. Only one team would go on to secure a spot on the ISS, an experiment aptly named “Tiny Wings of Glory”.

300 Kent Place students worked together to submit proposals for the National Center for Earth and Space Engineering Program. But only 6 seventh graders came out on top with a project intended to explore the role of gravity in butterfly life cycles.

Astronauts will record how well Painted Lady Butterfly cocoons survive on the space station, while the 6 local scientists will continue comparative experiments back on Earth. The victorious researchers explained in a release that they wanted to see how the butterflies would be able to pupate in microgravity–as these insects require inverted suspension while they change inside their cocoons.

“Tiny Wings of Glory” will be presenting their proposals and experiments at the Air & Space Smithsonian in Washington D.C this June.

The Masterwork Chorus launches its 17th season of “Summer Sings” on June 22.  This popular Wednesday series, attended by more than 500 singers in 2015, takes place weekly through July 20 at 7:30 p.m. in air-conditioned Rodda Hall at the Chatham United Methodist Church, 460 Main Street.

The June 22nd Sing features Orff’s Carmina Burana and Bernstein Chichester Psalms led by prominent area conductor Ryan Brandau, Artistic Director of Princeton Pro Musica and the Monmouth Civic Chorus, with professional soloists and accompanist.

Admission for singers is $15 and includes refreshments and loaner scores. Booklets of five tickets are available for $65 and may be shared. Student and listener admission is $7.50.

Masterwork Chorus is an auditioned chorus of approximately 100 voices.  Guided by its vision, mission, and goals, they are dedicated to enriching and supporting the cultural life of the community through high-quality choral performances. The chorus has a performance history that includes not only the traditional masterworks, but also masterpieces spanning a variety of musical periods and styles.  Some are well-known, others less so, but all are equally beautiful.

The chorus rehearses on Wednesday evenings, typically presents three concerts each year, and has performed in venues throughout New Jersey as well as in New York City at Carnegie Hall and Avery Fisher Hall, and in Washington, DC at the Kennedy Center. Since 1961 the chorus has returned to the Perelman Stage at Carnegie Hall every year for its signature performance of Handel’s Messiah. The group’s Messiah history is iconic, and, although Messiah performances now exceed two hundred fifty in number, the magic of the music and the performance space continues to delight audiences and singers alike.

Joining forces to make beautiful music is a growing Masterwork tradition.  In the spring of 2014, the chorus traveled to Germany to perform with Cäcilien-Chor of Frankfurt, continuing the “Voices Unite” series that began with joint performances in 2013 in the United States.  Masterwork also appeared with the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra and Ann Hampton Calloway in two 2012 holiday concerts at State Theatre, New Brunswick and the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark.

Testifying to Masterwork’s depth of talent is the Masterwork Camerata, a small choral chamber ensemble comprising some of Masterwork’s finest singers who are auditioned from within the larger chorus. The Camerata performs a wide range of repertoire, from the earliest known choral polyphony to adaptations of current pop and jazz, representing Masterwork in performances in intimate venues and as part of full Masterwork Chorus programs.

The Masterwork Chorus is a warm and welcoming group of people whose music-making spirit is characterized by generosity.  Many singers are long- time members, and only four conductors have called the Masterwork Chorus home since our founding in 1955. The Masterwork Alumni Association is active and thriving.  Noteworthy News, a bimonthly newsletter, is distributed to more than 2000 supporters and is available via email to anyone interested in keeping up to date with Masterwork.  The chorus has an extensive community outreach program. Its annual Summer Sings are held each June and July with several weeks of informal readings of great choral masterpieces under the baton of prominent area conductors. Twice yearly, Masterwork singers offer ReachOut performances, short concerts for senior citizens in assisted living and health care centers, as well as patients in hospitals and rehabilitation facilities. The chorus also participates in community events and has taken part in Morris County’s ceremony commemorating 9/11.
