Carol Ann Fleres spent the first 25 years of her career as the owner of the Rutherford Employment Agency before selling the company to pursue other ventures. Having earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology and sociology from the William Paterson University of New Jersey in 1990, she went on to achieve her real estate license and joined Prudential Zack Shore Properties in 2010 as a realtor associate, a role she held until 2014. From 2015 to 2018, she was a realtor associate with Diane Turton, Realtors and was subsequently a realtor with Gloria Nilson & Co. Real Estate from 2018 to 2020. Ms. Fleres currently serves as a realtor with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, where she has excelled since 2020.
Today, Ms. Fleres holds considerable expertise in residential real estate and listing homes. She has furthered her expertise by attaining certification in senior real estate and seller’s real estate, as well as a green designation through the National Association of Realtors. A particularly memorable moment in her career was when she had the opportunity to sell the house of Jack Cohen, the former mayor of Holmdel, New Jersey. This was the moment that truly endeared Ms. Fleres to selling houses, particularly for people who are leaving family homes. She strives to emphasize that this is not an ending, but a new beginning.
Alongside her primary responsibilities, Ms. Fleres has spent time on the board of directors for the Meadowlands Chamber, which she notes as an incredibly rewarding period. For her accomplishments, she was a four-time recipient of the Circle of Excellence and a five-time Top Listing Agent with the Avon by the Sea office of Diane Turton, Realtors. In 2018, she was recognized by Top Agent Magazine, and she has been the recipient of the Five Star Real Estate Award annually since 2017. Since joining Berkshire Hathaway, Ms. Fleres has been inducted into their honor society for both 2021 and 2022.
