Matthew Merritt Earns Award from NJ Realtors for Sales of Nearly $30 Million

Matthew Merritt, a Gloria Nilson & Co. Real Estate sales associate has earned the 2018 NJ Realtors® Circle of Excellence Sales Award® Matthew Merrit Circle of ExcellencePlatinum for his sales numbers last year. Operating out of the brokerage’s Millstone Township office, Merritt completed transactions totaling more than $29.7 million in 2018.

“As a lifelong resident of Central New Jersey, I understand our local communities and the happenings that influence their real estate markets,” said Merritt. “This information, along with my passion for assisting clients with home purchase and sale decisions that will impact the rest of their lives, is what drives me to excel. Helping my clients is what has been most important to me since beginning my real estate career as a teenager.”

Leonard DiPaolo, broker-manager of Gloria Nilson & Co.’s Millstone Township office where Merritt is based, explained how Merritt’s sales volume is consistently among the highest in the state.

“Matt is a natural at making lasting relationships with his clients that augment his business,” noted DiPaolo. “He’s turned his passion for helping people into a successful business model that has quickly made him one of the most recognized agents in the region. That success is reflected in his nearly $30 million in sales volume last year.”

At age 17, Merritt decided real estate was the ideal fit for his personality and a profession he wanted to pursue. One year later, he began his career in real estate. At the age of 22, Merritt became one of the youngest broker-associates in New Jersey. He has achieved numerous accolades in his career, including: NJ Realtors Circle of Excellence Sales Award 2008, 2010, Bronze; 2009, 2011-2012, Silver; 2013-2015, Gold; and 2016-2017, Platinum.

“Since beginning his career in real estate, Matt has achieved impressive sales numbers and built a track record of excellence,” said Gloria Nilson & Co. President and CEO Pat Bell. “It’s been a pleasure to watch his professional growth since joining forces with the Gloria Nilson & Co. team. I expect to see his name on this list of impressive Realtors for many years to come.”

In the last five years, Merritt has assembled one of Central New Jersey’s top real estate teams, The Merritt Real Estate team. Since its inception, this team has facilitated more than 350 transactions from contract to closing, constantly adapting to the ever-changing real estate market.

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