REALTOR® Call for Action!!
 
 
 
 
As a REALTOR®, you have no doubt heard about tax reform plans from Washington, DC. Now Congress is threatening tax incentives for homeowners, like the mortgage interest deduction and the state and local property tax deduction. These incentives are critical for a strong housing market that creates jobs and builds stable communities.

Take action to tell Congress to reform our tax code AND protect middle-class homeowners.

 
 
 
Town Spotlight - Allendale
 
 
 
 
By Liz White
Mayor, Borough of Allendale

On behalf of our Borough Council, staff, and most importantly our residents, I welcome you to the Borough of Allendale. With a population of just over 6,100, Allendale prides itself on being one of the friendliest towns in Bergen County.

In addition to our award-winning schools, Allendale has all the charm of small-town America. Our Main Street looks like a Norman Rockwell painting and the open space of our town make it unique in the most populated County in New Jersey. The “gems” of Allendale include the Celery farm, which consists of over 107 acres of preserve and is one of the most unique bird sanctuaries in the state. This also includes Crestwood Lake Park, a vast sand-bottom club, which hosts one of the most picturesque swim clubs in our county.

What makes Allendale a great place to live is its residents. The number of volunteer organizations is unsurpassed. Allendale has never lost its sense of history and strives to maintain a lifestyle that is reminiscent of times gone by. Memorial Day parade, hot dogs at the volunteer firehouse and fireworks display on the Fourth of July, all reflect the small town ambiance that is so rare.
