About the Blog

Welcome to Judy Home Trends


Half of my career has been in helping home buyers find a house they can call home and selling homes for top dollar. I’ve also lived through the housing slump and assisted home owners on short selling their home to avoid foreclosure. During the good and the bad times, I have come to realize that buying a home is one of the most expensive expenditures in a family’s budget yet why aren’t we talking about in more detail?


That’s why I started Judy Home Trends-to give prospective home buyers/sellers a place to learn more about the home buying/selling process and uncover real life goal related questions beyond the standard “Are you pre-approved?” and “What kind of home are you selling”.  Get to know your communities just like the good old days.


The Blog is your community resource for renters transitioning into home ownership, homeowner maintenance and topics related to all things in and out of the home. We’ll discuss real estate in relation to your personal lifestyle goals, share DIY projects, showcase people and places in the local New Jersey area and beyond. Additionally, I’ll write about other lifestyle related topics: home, food, travel, wellness and saving hacks to keep your home life balanced!

Join me on this journey.
