Lily Chu-Constable is an elite REALTOR® based in Montclair, New Jersey. A Five Star Professional with over fourteen years of experience, Lily is a leading expert in the buying and selling of real estate in northern New Jersey and ranks among the top 3% of real estate agents in the United States. Lily specializes in both residential and commercial properties across Essex County, Morris County, Passaic County, Union County, Somerset County, Bergen County, Hudson County, and beyond.
Lily's enduring success in real estate was born of her innate marketing talents and background in fine arts. Before she began her career, she developed an eye for design and presentation while studying music and performance at Brooklyn College. After graduating, Lily sought a career path that could support her creative passions. As she tells it, real estate was the natural choice:
I needed a career that was practical, but I also wanted the opportunity to express my creativity. In real estate, I am able to apply my creative instincts to the staging process of home buying and selling. And I do have a very good eye for renovation: for when we should knock down this or change that. My clients love my work—it makes their homes more beautiful and much more marketable. I do staging for my clients and this process really helps my listings sell.
Lily started her real estate career in early 2003 and has since steadily built up her reputation as a dependable, dedicated professional willing to go the extra mile to make sure that her clients are completely satisfied. Though she is based in Montclair, Lily commonly travels extensively throughout northern New Jersey to meet clients and list properties. In addition to Montclair, she serves the towns of Glen Ridge, Bloomfield, Verona, Cedar Grove, Cedar Knolls, Livingston, Millburn, Chatham, Summit, New Providence, East Hanover, Whippany, Parsippany, Randolph, Basking Ridge, Secaucus, Jersey City, Cliffside Park, Fort Lee, Ridgewood, and Glen Rock, and many others. Lily is also fluent in Cantonese and Mandarin, allowing her to serve a diverse clientele. Her exceptional work ethic has garnered her a very loyal clientele; over 90% of her clients coming from repeat clients and referrals. Working with buyers, sellers, and investors, Lily’s diverse skill set, dedication, and creativity have made her a true leader in her field.
Lily’s industry-leading production and client service have not gone unnoticed by her peers. She has been included in the New Jersey Circle of Excellence each year since 2004 by the New Jersey Association of Realtors and New Jersey Monthly Magazine has recognized her as a FIVE STAR Real Estate Professional Agent since 2011 through 2017. She is also a member of the RE/MAX 100% club and was inducted into the company's Hall of Fame in 2014.
As a leader in her industry, Lily is always following the latest trends in her industry. These days, she’s noticing that people are investing more in their homes before they put them on the market. It’s a different approach that can shorten the turnaround on a listing. Lily explains:
One significant change in the last two to three years is that properties are much cleaner when they are listed. Sellers are ensuring that they are ready to go, from the second they hit the market. That makes a huge difference. Buyers really want to buy what they see. They want to move into homes that are ready in order to save time and money on renovations. 'Fixer-uppers' are a thing of the past.
