CENTURY 21 Cedarcrest Realty Celebrates 10th Anniversary and 10 Years of Consistent Growth

John Sass

Essex County Real Estate Agency Has Vastly Expanded its Sales Team, Built-Up Production Numbers and Added Second Location in Passaic County; Agents and Office Have Won Prestigious Real Estate Industry Awards Since 2010

​John Sass, broker/owner of Century 21 Cedarcrest Realty, Inc. in Caldwell, New Jersey is celebrating his agency’s 10th anniversary this month, marking the milestone with pride, a shelf full of regional and national real estate industry awards and a second office in Little Falls, which opened this spring.

The agency was founded in 1978; Sass bought it in 2009. Prior to taking ownership of Cedarcrest Realty, Sass had worked in other CENTURY 21 offices in recruiting and training. That experience shows every day in the professional development CENTURY 21 Cedarcrest Realty offers its real estate agents at all levels of experience. All agents receive training in sales and customer care, the transaction process, writing contracts and using the digital marketing tools provided by CENTURY 21 Real Estate most effectively to their clients’ advantage.

The company, which started with six people in 2009, now has over 80 real estate agents—some of whom are among the region’s highest producers—plus a director of career development and two sales managers. It has historically specialized in Essex County real estate but has expanded with office coverage to cover Passaic County, in response to its growth and the extended reach of its sales team over the years.

In addition to growing its sales team 15-fold, CENTURY 21 Cedarcrest Realty has celebrated many milestones over the past 10 years.

And I care about everyone here as people and as professionals, which permeates throughout the company. We are well-positioned to continue our forward trajectory as we strive to always deliver—in the words of CENTURY 21 Real Estate—relentless service and commitment and a superior experience for everyone involved.”
