Luxury Real Estate Features LSR President, Karen Schneider

LuxuryRealEstate.com‘s “Week in Review,” features our President, Karen Schneider in the Broker Q&A column.  The article explains her start in Real Estate, her career path, and the reasons for Lois Schneider Realtor’s success! Below is a snippet from the press release:

“The success of LSR starts with our extraordinary sales people, who have an incredible passion and dedication to their work. My mother had an uncanny ability to recruit the best of the best. We also are blessed with great support staff, including a top-notch marketing and graphic department that create a high-quality, consistent look across all collateral materials.

From the beginning, LSR has occupied a unique market niche, a true boutique firm in the days of mergers, expansions and buyouts by huge national companies. When my mother founded the company, she opted to establish a strong brand with just a single office that she strategically opened in the heart of the upscale town of Summit, New Jersey, a direct train line away from Wall Street. Her mission was to offer unparalleled personal service through excellent local-based market knowledge and expertise, hiring only highly skilled professionals who had their finger on the pulse of the community.

Moreover, the company’s extensive philanthropic endeavors are at the heart of LSR’s business philosophy, where we feel that giving back to the community is an essential component to building meaningful relationships and establishing good will.”

The Fine Art of Living

The National Association of Realtors has suggested that home ownership boosts a child’s confidence level.  No surprise there, but if the statement holds any truth, imagine the sort of cultural “smart” home that not only teaches kids but gives them an unwitting edge over their peers simply by growing up there.

Homeowners Debbie and David have created such a place 23 miles west of New York City in a private upscale enclave called Bel Air Estates in Livingston where David works in the real estate industry.  The couple wanted a home that was completely livable and one that reflected their international experience.

Together, they had traveled the world with their three children, collecting fine oil paintings, etchings, sculptures and lithographs that today adorn the walls of their home. Whimsical artistic prints dance over door transoms, a collection of blue and white antiques fills the living room, and a pair of whippet statues greets the visitor at the end of a serpentine drive.

For their children, the Romeo and Juliet balcony overlooking the grand courtyard is a teachable Shakespearean moment. Playing hide and seek in gardens of diverse horticultural splendors and noteworthy sculptures resembles a trip through a botanical garden. A music niche for the Baby Grand piano floats graceful notes up to a cathedral ceiling, while artful places for homework, meditation, exercise and entertainment inspire subliminally.

The children would never know that playing among those specimen plantings and learning their exotic names was anything less than a blast. Or that they would sit around the breakfast table eating their Cheerios with a wall of lovely artwork as their morning backdrop. Or that a slide down the sleek banisters of exquisitely turned twin bridal staircases would land them in the ‘art gallery’ that was their indoor playground.

Their children could not imagine that in later years, they would be able to identify a famous painting on a museum wall just as easily as they could pick out Eli Manning or One Direction from the crowd.  They would never imagine that those staircases might one day serve as the perfect wedding venue for a descending bride.

And… they could never have imagined that every detail of the home, from concept to completion, was meticulously and ingeniously worked out for them!

A home.  A work of art.  A way of life.  A blast!
