Co-Publishers Peter Best and Gene Petraglia started Homes & Estates Magazines, in 1993 when we launched our first publication Morris Sussex Warren Homes & Estates. Over the years we have launched new Homes & Estates Magazines covering Bergen & Passaic Counties in NJ covering; Middlesex, Union, Essex, Somerset, Hunterdon & South Warren Counties in NJ; Rockland & Orange Counties in NY; and Westchester County NY & Fairfield County CT. Our media footprint includes 1.8 million copies per year in print; 800,000 page views per year digitally; and 350,000 engagements per year thru social media. With our real estate radio show with Salem Media, we are now reaching an additional 1+ million listeners per month.
Our print publications, our digital editions and web site, and our large social media platform all are geared completely towards connecting real estate buyers and seller to realtors in order to help people achieve the objective of homeownership by finding their dream homes; and then when they are ready to sell to help them get their properties sold as fast as possible and at the highest possible price to maximize their return on their investment.
In addition to Homes & Estate magazines, we have published a variety of other publications including company-specific private real estate magazines, a sports newspaper, an entertainment magazine, an antique newspaper, and a weekly community newspaper.
