About Michelle Schwartz-Clement

I grew up in Brooklyn, lived in Manhattan, attended SUNY Albany and Syracuse Law School. As a native New Yorker I never expected to live in New Jersey. My husband and I moved to Montclair from NYC when we decided to start a family. Somewhat reluctant to leave NYC we discovered Montclair. The Montclair Art Museum, Montclair University, the shopping and restaurants made us feel at home. From the moment we moved here we knew we made the right decision! I love Montclair because of the tight knit community along with all the conveniences of a cosmopolitan city.

As a resident of Montclair for 15 years as well as a realtor, I understand that buying or selling a home is more than just a transaction: it’s a life-changing experience. That’s why I am dedicated to providing exceptional, personalized service to my clients. I take great pride in the relationships I build and always work relentlessly on my client’s behalf to help them achieve their real estate goals.

I strive to lead the field in research, innovation, and consumer education. Today’s buyers and sellers need a trusted resource that can guide them through the complex world of real estate. My clients come first! I communicate with my clients to keep them fully informed throughout the entire buying or selling process. My goals are to leave my clients with an amazing experience and customer satisfaction.
