About the Research Process

Now entering its 15th year, Five Star Professional conducts in-depth, market-specific research in more than 45 markets across the United States and Canada to identify Five Star Award recipients. Five Star Professional partnered with New Jersey Monthly to identify real estate professionals in the New Jersey area who deliver outstanding service and client satisfaction.

Five Star Professionals surveyed New Jersey residents who purchased a home over $150,000 within a 3-month period (March 2016 and June 2016). Phone, mail and online respondents rated their real estate agent on criteria such as overall satisfaction and whether they would recommend the agent to a friend. The factors included customer service, communication, ability to find the right home, integrity, negotiation skills, the marketing of the home, knowledge of the market, closing preparation and their overall satisfaction with the agent. In addition, an individual must hold a current real estate license and be in good standing. Real estate agents do not pay a fee to be considered or awarded. For more information, visit
