Gloria Nilson & Co.’s Matthew Merritt Acknowledged by NJ Realtors

Having completed transactions last year totaling more than $31 million, Gloria Nilson & Co. Real Estate’s Matthew Merritt has been recognized by NJ Realtors with its 2017 NJ Matt Merrit real estate award winnerRealtors® Circle of Excellence Sales Award® Platinum.

“I strive to become a better agent each and every day,” said Merritt. “I’ve been fortunate to turn my passion into a career, and by doing so, I have been able to earn such a prestigious award while also serving the needs of my local community.”

John Burke, regional branch manager of Gloria Nilson & Co.’s office where Merritt is based, said a major aspect of Merritt’s success is his effort to fully invest himself in his clients’ goals to better understand and achieve them.

“The decisions you make when buying or selling a home are crucial to your financial well-being and happiness,” says Burke. “Matt is completely committed to his clients and treats every transaction as if it were his own. It’s no surprise this attitude has driven him to achieve this award.”

Merritt began his career in real estate at the age of 18, and by the age of 22 he became one of the youngest broker-associates in New Jersey. Merritt has been given a number of awards throughout his career, including the NJ Realtors Circle of Excellence Sales Award, 2008 and 2010, Bronze; 2009, 2011-2012, Silver; 2013-2015, Gold; and 2016, Platinum.

“I continue to be impressed by what Matt has accomplished both early on in his career, as well as his current achievements,” said Gloria Nilson & Co. President and CEO Pat Bell. “He’s committed to making a difference in the lives of his clients, and that is reflected in his impressive sales numbers. We couldn’t be happier for him.”

Merritt attended Brookdale Community College in Lincroft, N.J., where he earned an associate’s degree while simultaneously launching his career in real estate. Since then, he has focused his efforts entirely on the real estate industry.

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