RIDGEWOOD NJ, Christie’s International Real Estate Northern New Jersey is proud to announce the appointment of Ferne Lambert as Director of Education. Ferne is a highly respected and experienced industry leader with over 35 years of sales and management experience. The company’s remarkable success and rapid growth this past year, notably leading as the #1 Real Estate Brokerage in Northwest Bergen County in New Jersey Year-to-Date in 2021 (by dollar volume per NJMLS 600 area), paved the way for Ferne to educate and train new licensees in today’s fast-paced real estate market as well as coach experienced agents, helping them to elevate their business to the next level.
Ferne’s extensive experience in the industry as a real estate Broker in Bergen County for over 35 years, her proven track record of customer service and experience, and her appointment to this new position bring an added level of expertise to Christie’s as the agency continues to expand. “Ferne is a highly regarded and qualified expert in the real estate industry in our market area. We were happy to have her representing the Christie’s brand as the manager of our Mahwah sales gallery from the day we first launched the brokerage, and now to have her as our trusted advisor and mentor to all of our Christie’s agents across our footprint,” said Ilija Pavlovic, President and CEO of Christie’s International Real Estate Northern New Jersey, Westchester Hudson Valley.
Ferne has introduced a hands-on work-study program with a strong emphasis on the Christie’s mission of providing unparalleled customized service while upholding ethical core values. The training program, also available to agents of Christie’s International Real Estate Westchester and Hudson Valley, is based on a “learning while doing” principle in contrast to learning by lecture and will utilize the advice of other accomplished real estate professionals who share their secrets to their success. “I am so excited to share my knowledge and experiences with new licensees joining our company and look forward to mentoring and coaching every agent seeking guidance here at Christie’s. The real estate profession is certainly everchanging and evolving, but I believe the true way to succeed in this business will always remain as exceptional client service and refining the customer experience,” said Lambert. “I’ve always applied those principles to my profession, and it never failed. It is especially advantageous to have the support of a highly revered brand and company like Christie’s that shares these key core values,” she continued.
Ferne’s passion, business acumen and leadership record have all contributed to her years of success in real estate that she is eager to pass onto her mentees. She provides unparalleled insight to the field as a former President of the RealSource Board of Realtors®, the Chairperson of the RealSource Professional Standards Committee, and First District Vice President of the New Jersey State Realtor® Association. She was also the Broker Owner of a multi-office real estate company for 18 years, prior to joining Christie’s.
