Five Star Professional recently named Lyndhurst agents Teresa DaSilva Choinski and Gina Ghione as winners of the 2013 Five Star Real Estate Agent award. Choinski and Ghione appeared in a special section in the March issue of New Jersey Monthly magazine.
Five Star Professional partnered with New Jersey magazine to find real estate agents who satisfy five objective eligibility and evaluation criteria that are associated with real estate agents who provide quality services to their clients. Fewer than 2% of the 80,700 real estate agents in the New Jersey area are selected.
Award candidates were identified through nominations received by consumers. A survey was provided to all New Jersey area residents (more than 40,000 households surveyed) who purchased a home over $150,000 within an 8-month period (September 2011 to May 2012).
Survey recipients were asked to evaluate real estate agents with whom they have worked and evaluate them based on certain criteria. Each award candidate was reviewed for disciplinary actions, customer complaints and regulatory actions as reported by regulatory agencies.
Five Star Professional conducts market-specific research to identify service professionals who provide quality services to their clients. Five Star Professional joins forces with city and regional magazines to make the research results available to consumers in more than 45 markets across the United States and Canada. Five Star Professional was founded in 2003 and is based in Minneapolis, Minn. Both Ghione and Choinski can be reached at Century 21 Semiao’s Lyndhurst branch at 201-460-8000.
