MJ Group, led by Maggie Raffaele and Jia Yan, recently closed the final residences of the spectacular Glass House in the heart of Edgewater. As the exclusive listing agents for the property since its launch in 2017, the successful closing of the property is attributed to the diligent work by Maggie and Jia while representing the high-end condo property.
Powered by Prominent Properties Sotheby’s International Realty, MJ Group is renowned for their high level of professionalism, extensive real estate experience, and comprehensive market knowledge. The caliber of MJ Group is highlighted through the unprecedented demand for their services and their appointment as exclusive listing agents for several exciting projects, including Pearl at 9 Somerset Lane, Edgewater, and currently, OTTO.
Developed by National Resources, Glass House offers the ultimate waterfront lifestyle with breathtaking views of the Hudson River. These carefully curated, luxurious homes encompass everything residents could desire for an enviable Gold Coast living experience. As a testament to MJ Group’s ability to connect buyers with residences, the property’s 107 residences closed for prices ranging from $650,000 to $2 million per unit.
The exquisite residences at Glass House possess top-of-the-line of contemporary fixtures and fittings, along with spacious balconies, oversized Marvin windows, expansive 10-foot ceilings, and Smart home features, such as the NEST Smart Home Thermostat System and ComeLit Intercom System. Residents can effortlessly dine and entertain with premier gourmet kitchens that boast unsurpassed features, including Caesar stone countertops, Kohler fixtures, along with Subzero, Wolf and Bosch stainless steel appliances. In addition to the spacious bedrooms, spa-like bathrooms with soaking tubs ensure residents can relax and rejuvenate after a long day.
