Bernadette Ruegg Honored By NJ REALTORS®

Bernadette Ruegg, a sales associate in the Shrewsbury office of Gloria Nilson & Co. Real Estate, was awarded the 2016 NJ Realtors® Circle of Excellence SalesBernadette Ruegg Award® Gold, having successfully closed more than $12.3 million in real estate transactions last year. Ruegg previously earned the NJ Realtors Circle of Excellence Sales Award Gold in 2014 and 2015.

“It’s an honor to receive this professional recognition,” said Ruegg. “I’m fortunate to work with amazing clients who value my enthusiasm for the work, my experience and my dedication to putting them in the best possible negotiating position when buying or selling a home.”

Susan Svikhart, the broker-manager of Gloria Nilson & Co.’s Shrewsbury office, says Ruegg’s dynamic personality and knowledge of the industry are powerful assets that help drive her business.

“Bernadette brings more energy and enthusiasm to the real estate business than anyone I know, and her clients appreciate that,” says Svikhart. “She is a student of the real estate market, always analyzing trends and conducting market research. That approach helps put her clients in the driver’s seat of any transaction, and is just one example of why she is so deserving of this professional recognition.”

Ruegg has been a sales associate with the brokerage for more than 20 years and, according to Pat Bell, president of Gloria Nilson & Co., has consistently been a stand-out performer.

“What I hear from Bernadette’s clients is how helpful she was to them and how much they enjoyed working with her,” said Bell. “What has always impressed me about Bernadette is that she really does give her all to her clients, and the results show in the many referrals she receives and the professional accolades she continues to earn for her hard work.”

With a bachelor’s degree in education and master’s degree in psychology, Ruegg has been a licensed realtor since 1987. She is also a member of the Monmouth County Board of Realtors® and the New Jersey Realtors. 

NJ Realtors Circle of Excellence Award recognizes those members who have demonstrated excellence in the field of salesmanship.
