We actually left Jersey City a few months back. Bought a house up in the 'burbs. Loving the house and getting used to the whole owning a home thing. Let us know when you're back in town - we hope to be getting down to JC more often than we have. Good luck with the research project.
They are as advertised. They are a family owned company and it shows. They are attentive and responsive to their tenants. They support tenants long after you have moved in. I have been highly impressed with all my dealing with Friar Letting and every member of their team. They are the rare gem among letting agents. Highly recommend them for anyone looking for a new home.
