We are Jen and Megan, the Layton Twins. We were born and raised in the US Virgin Islands where we grew up in a tight-knit community that revolved around swimming, tennis, soccer, triathlons, art, theater and an occasional hurricane. You might be wondering why two island girls are living in northern New Jersey. We followed our dreams of joining the business world after attending college in the Northeast, which eventually led us to Manhattan. After five years of city life, we were ready to find a place that would allow us to keep working toward those dreams yet capture all that we loved about growing up in St. Croix: namely a strong sense of community and a great place to raise our kids; a place where neighbors invite each other over for barbecues, where the local coffee shop knows our order, and where people are greeted with smiles and a friendly wave.
Our goal is to cultivate a sense of community one home at a time in the amazing New Jersey towns on the Morris & Essex NJ Transit line. We recognize that the Midtown Direct towns like Madison, Chatham, Summit, Milburn, Short Hills and Maplewood are highly desirable. Brimming with diverse restaurants, energetic people and growing families, these towns offer a unique and refreshing blend of metropolitan sophistication and small-town life just a train ride away from New York City. We can also introduce you to all the incredible aspects that make these towns so special, from the local craftsmen you’ll use for house projects and sports teams you'll cheer for to the scenic hiking trails and abundant charm that make the area so appealing.
We can share our knowledge and passion for the area to help you find your dream home. While we understand that navigating the real estate market can be confusing and stressful, we promise you confidentiality, full disclosure and loyalty. We work around your availability to introduce you to the latest homes to hit the market by leveraging both technology and traditional techniques.
We have been inspired by the people, culture and adventures around us while living and working in Manhattan, Hoboken and Jersey City. While we remain grounded in our island upbringing, we have also fallen in love with New Jersey. This new chapter in our lives promises to an equally exciting and inspiring time for us.
Our decision to leave the corporate world and establish our real estate partnership in Turpin’s Chatham Office stems from our desire to become further immersed in our communities and more actively involved in local causes close to our heart. We look forward to hearing your story and welcoming you to the area.
