Nice to meet you, I’m Sonia! With vast international sales and marketing experience working for Fortune 500 clients and a Ph.D in Language Education, I am certainly not your typical REALTOR®. In fact, I go above and beyond as a one-stop shop for any and all of your real-estate needs, serving more as a counselor and advisor in your home buying or selling journey! As a long-time New Jersey resident, I specialize in key towns along the Midtown Direct train line in top school districts and vibrant communities. My Core Values Compassion: I pride myself on offering a unique home buying and/or selling experience that is deeply personal and tailored to my clients’ needs. I’ve been in your shoes—I see you and hear you always. Integrity/Honesty: I prioritize open, clear communication, accessibility, and transparency throughout the entire process. Knowledge: I am a firm believer that knowledge is power! I aim to be your one-stop shop (from initial consultation to closing) for guidance, resources, and access to a network of lenders, inspectors, stagers, attorneys, and more. Professionalism: I am committed to providing you with exceptional service, dedication, and commitment in every facet. You and your family deserve top results and I’m here to provide them! Efficiency: Whether you are planning to sell your current home, buy a new home, or invest in real estate, I strive to make this process as easy as possible for you and your family. Born and raised near Barcelona, Spain by a line of strong female entrepreneurs, I came to the U.S. to pursue postgraduate studies at Indiana University as a Fulbright fellow. I have had the privilege of living and working all around the world. As a REALTOR®, I wear many hats! But one of my favorite hats to wear at home is the ‘mom’ hat. I’m the proud mom of two incredible kids, Victoria and Marc, who inspire me everyday! My kids and my wonderful husband, Eric, are the best support system I could ever ask for. I love to learn, travel, read, cook, but most of all, I love what I do because I do what I love. Real estate, for me, is not about selling houses. It’s about connecting with people, listening to their stories, and working with clients that always seem to turn into life-long friends in the homes of their dreams! I hope to be your North Star at Compass, guiding you home and providing direction and inspiration every step of your journey. Let’s get started! Client Testimonials Scroll down for more ★★★★★"Sonia is a passionate and fully dedicated professional! Since the very first meeting we immediately felt that we were in the best hands. When you are about to do such an important transaction you want somebody next to you you can fully trust. From agreeing on the strategy based on her detailed analysis to choosing the right smoke detectors (on a Sunday evening) you can count on her full support! Sonia gave us the special feeling that she really cares about us. She didn’t only sell our house to our full satisfaction but also found us a beautiful new home in record time. If we should move again it will be certainly only with Sonia." ★★★★★"Sonia has done a fantastic job at every step of the way, finding us the perfect home! She is very caring, helpful, honest, and dedicated to her job and her clients. She finds the perfect balance of giving you her expert opinion and letting you make your own decisions. Her negotiation skills made a dead deal come back to life and turn it into a win-win for everyone involved. The whole process took only couple of weeks thanks to her planning, coordination and follow up skills. She is always available to answer any questions you may have and goes above and beyond to exceed your expectations. We highly recommend Sonia to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a house! Thank you Sonia so much for such a great job! We would not have done it so well without you. All the best wishes to you. Your clients are so lucky to have you!" ★★★★★"Selling a home first time can be daunting/intimidating. However Sonia made it so easy for us understanding how the the process functions. She availed herself to us step by step and for that we're eternally grateful. We're convinced if not for Sonia, we wouldn't have done as well as we did with selling our property and for the price garnered. Highly recommend her as an agent to anyone seeking to sell/buy a home. Kudos and thank you Sonia - you were magnificent." ★★★★★"It was a great pleasure working with Sonia. She helped us to find the perfect home for my family. Then, she put our previous house on the market and it was sold in 2 weeks at the price we have targeted. Amazing! She guided us step by step on the process to sale and buy our homes. She is an expert realtor. She gave us very useful recommendations. She knows who to contact for everything (for the inspection for example). She is responsive anytime, any day. She is fully dedicated to her job. She is a very good listener and she understood our needs. In addition, she is such a nice and amazing person. Thank you Sonia for everything you did for us!" ★★★★★"My husband and I just closed on our first home this week and owe so much thanks to Sonia! She brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise, which is evident even in your very first conversation. She listens attentively to truly understand what you are looking for in your new home. I remember her taking feverish notes during our first call and didn't miss a beat. She listened to our needs, answered ALL of our questions, and talked us through the entire process." ★★★★★"We began our home search in the middle of the pandemic, which we knew would present some challenges. We were up against a limited housing supply and at the height of the market. We needed a partner that could be tenacious, but also provide honest feedback a partner we could trust! Sonia is detail-oriented, extremely organized, thorough, and always thinking three steps ahead. Her proven success and client focus has earned her countless key relationships, which serve as a network of references to share with her clients home inspectors, contractors, attorneys, moving companies, etc. When you are making the greatest financial decision in your life you need someone with integrity, who is strategic,prepared, nimble, and intelligent. She held many late phone conversations, offering feedback and guidance after we toured homes. In this market, you tour a home on a Friday and need to have your best and final offer prepared by Tuesday. Sonia helped us strategize in preparing a strong and creative offer package that ultimately won us the deal. She is always there for you − during the home inspections, throughout your mortgage process, at the closing, and even after the purchase transaction is complete. Sonia is among the most knowledgeable, professional, and genuinely caring people that we have ever met.- Michelle and Bruce O" ★★★★★" Sonia is an amazing realtor, super committed to helping us find the right place for us. She is communicative and always helps you assess all the options. She helped us understand the pros and cons of each property and went out of her way to manage the overall experience of first-time home buyers like us. I will recommend Sonia to all my friends looking for a home!! - Luciano L. and Ana A " ★★★★★"It was quite a journey buying this house. Apparently a straightforward transaction that shouldn't have had any complications at all, it became one of the most complex experiences for all of us on the buyer's side. We had three relatively serious inspection issues that took 6 weeks to address, and unfortunately, we got to the closing day with the HVAC issues still unresolved. All of this generated a lot of uncertainty for us. My husband and I were feeling frustration and anger often times. So, the person that kept us going and on track was Sonia. She was involved in EVERYTHING and was in complete control of every aspect of the transaction, from the strategy and tactics of dealing with the sellers’ team to literally counseling us in moments of exasperation. " ★★★★★"We could not have asked for a better realtor, and if we are proud owners of a beautiful house today, we owe it completely to Sonia. Apart from being very knowledgeable, professional, and well connected, she is just a very decent person that sincerely cares about people. The day we finally closed the deal, and she was giving us the keys to the house, I had the feeling we were out of a fierce battle together, and if I must do it again, Sonia would be my absolute choice. - Tatiana H. and Alejandro M. " ★★★★★" Sonia is not your average realtor. From day one she understands your needs and takes on the home buying process with such passion. People often mistook her as the buyer because she asked so many questions, took so many notes, as if it were her own home. She truly went beyond the call of duty. She attended meetings and inspections with us to make sure we were getting a good house and that she could advise us well. It’s been a stress reliever to know that Sonia is on top of so many details and has helped us navigate the home buying process from start to finish… and even beyond. She is extremely knowledgeable, connected and always available and responsive. She works with integrity and has a big heart. We highly recommend working with her!!- Alexis and Gustavo P. " ★★★★★" It was a great pleasure working with Sonia. She helped us find the perfect home for my family. Then, she put our previous house on the market and it was sold in 2 weeks at the price we had targeted. Amazing! She guided us step by step on the process to sell and buy our homes. She is an expert realtor. She gave us very useful recommendations. She knows who to contact for everything (for the inspection for example). She is responsive anytime, any day. She is fully dedicated to her job. She is a very good listener and she understood our needs. In addition, she is such a nice and amazing person. Thank you, Sonia, for everything you did for us!! - Delphine and Stephane M.. " ★★★★★" It is my pleasure to recommend Sonia as a real estate agent for any individual or family searching for the ideal home. She is highly talented in negotiations, attentive to every detail, and personable with an engaging personality. Sonia is a kind and trustworthy person who makes the closing process a smooth transaction. With my 20 years of legal experience in the real estate industry, I am pleased to recommend Sonia to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. - Anthony D., real estate attorney. " ★★★★★"We could not have done it without Sonia! Navigating an extremely competitive market as first-time home buyers was very confusing and overwhelming for my husband and I, that too in the middle of a global pandemic! Sonia took the time to understand our area preferences while also guiding us to consider what was most important to us in our first home. She kept us hyper-focused and always gave us her honest opinion as if she were buying the house with us. She is patient yet steadfast in her approach. Not only is she incredibly organized, but she proactively provided us with detailed information and data so that we could make informed decisions about the properties we were considering and strategize on how we could strengthen our position as buyers. " ★★★★★"Sonia is also a wizard at building relationships. She’s very hands on and works seamlessly with Seller’s Agent, attorneys and other parties involved to ensure a smooth transaction. In our case, this made all the difference because if it wasn’t for her working swiftly with our attorney, we would not have closed the deal! We appreciate Sonia’s authenticity and integrity and really hope we can work together again in the future!" - Shivani S. and Jigar G. " ★★★★★"From the first conversation with Sonia, we knew that she will be an excellent advisor. We have already spoken about her to our family and close friends and would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell in the area. It was heartwarming to feel that we had someone in our corner, advising us not to rush into a decision and always giving us a straight answer, even when it was in her advantage not to. From start to close, Sonia successfully negotiated on our behalf, strengthened our position, prepared us on what to expect and planned three steps ahead, especially when placing the offer. Sonia is also highly organized and would always show up to her appointments early, prepared with print outs of the "flight plan": the driving path we will take to visiting each property, details of each house and market color for the region and history of each property. As our trusted advisor, Sonia has also exceeded our expectations when it comes to unbiased and pressure-free recommendations to key parties that every home buyer would eventually need. - Fadi M. and Erica H.. " ★★★★★" Sonia is a passionate and fully dedicated professional! Since the very first meeting we immediately felt that we were in the best hands. When you are about to make such an important transaction you want somebody next to you that you can fully trust. From agreeing on the strategy based on her detailed analysis to choosing the right smoke detectors (on a Sunday evening) you can count on her full support! Sonia gave us the special feeling that she really cares about us. She didn’t only sell our house to our full satisfaction but also found us a beautiful new home in record time. If we should move again it will be certainly only with Sonia. - Peter H. and Adriana U. " ★★★★★" Highly recommend! Superior service coupled with tremendously honest character. - Michael B., mortgage lender. " ★★★★★"Sonia is an incredible realtor! With calm precision she guided us through buying a home on a VERY short timeline. (During a pandemic, no less!!) The first time I met Sonia, long before we needed a realtor, I was impressed at how smart and professional she was - but also how personable and genuine. Many months later when we suddenly needed a realtor, she was our very first call! Best decision ever - Sonia is extremely detail oriented and thorough; a very hard worker. She is patient and kind, but also a very strong advocate and negotiator. She is a great communicator - she always followed up with us and kept us informed every step of the way. Even after we moved in, she has kept in touch with us and helped us find a trusted handyman. I really can’t say enough good things about Sonia! We would definitely use her again in the future and recommend her without any reservations. - Mike and Christina H. " ★★★★★"You just cannot go wrong with Sonia as your realtor! The consummate professional - empathetic, responsive, always exceeding expectations and forever in your corner. For us as first-time home buyers, it would have been so easy to have been overwhelmed by the process and navigating a competitive sellers’ market but for Sonia. From walking us through the process end to end, helping us negotiate pre-approval rates, listening very patiently to our needs, understanding them and then shortlisting properties that lined up with those needs- she did it all with a very cheerful manner and never say die attitude. She always has our interests in mind and it shone through in big things (consoling us after we lost our first bid, giving us her honest views on offer prices, the pros and cons of different homes we saw) and the little things (a very thoughtful personalized gift after we closed, being so great around our children as we lugged them with us for every viewing). She coordinated with the lending bank, sellers’ attorney, our attorney, contractors, home inspectors and even apologized when any one of them did not live up to the unrealistically high bar she has set for herself. We look forward to being neighbors with Sonia now as she was able to help us find our dream home just a little distance away from her own! You just cannot go wrong with Sonia as your realtor... - Vishy P. and Garima C. " ★★★★★" I first met Sonia at an open house and from the beginning I was very impressed by her attention to detail, her compassion, and her superior organizational skills. It was at that point that I knew I wanted to Sonia to be the person to represent me on buying our first home. From day 1, Sonia was fully prepared with all the information I could've possibly needed to help my wife and I in our decision making. Even through our indecisiveness Sonia remained patient and positive that we would find our perfect family home. Although we were in a bit of a time crunch (closed in roughly 45 days), Sonia helped us step by step through the closing process and always kept our best interests in mind. We relied on Sonia for all recommendations regarding inspection, lawyer, title company, etc. I would highly recommend Sonia to anyone for their real estate needs because she won't let you down and will ensure that you're truly happy with your home buying/selling experience. - Haris and Nazia S. " . ★★★★★" Sonia has done a fantastic job at every step of the way, finding us the perfect home! She is very caring, helpful, honest, and dedicated to her job and her clients. She finds the perfect balance of giving you her expert opinion and letting you make your own decisions.

Thank you Sonia so much for such a great job! We would not have done it so well without you. All the best wishes to you. Your clients are so lucky to have you!” - Sebnem and Fatih K. " ★★★★★" Wow! I am a realtor in North Georgia who needed a truly talented, hardworking, service-minded, quick witted individual who knew the ins and outs of their local market. I had received news that a friend of my client needed to sell their home in Roselle. I interviewed many agents and narrowed down to 3 for the sellers to interview. Sonia blew through those 2 agents, 1 of which had dominated the market for 30 years. You just cannot beat raw talent and true work ethic. If you are considering buying, selling, or investing in real estate or even adding a gem of a referral agent to your pipeline, call Sonia immediately. - Gabrielle G., Keller Williams Realty, Georgia. " ★★★★★" I truly can’t say enough good things about Sonia! She is the best! I have known Sonia for many years and always have had a high regard for her. The moment I decided to sell my house I knew that I would ask Sonia to be my agent since I know she is such a warm, genuine and trustworthy person. I have worked with a few other agents before and Sonia is truly the best! Sonia has a keen sense of the market and presented our house very well. We received multiple offers shortly after we listed and sold it over asking price. " ★★★★★" Sonia is very patient and knowledgeable, and guided us in every detail throughout the process. Whenever I need her, she is always there for me. She is thoroughly professional and an extremely hard worker, motivated, responsive and dedicated. " ★★★★★" All the contractor recommendations she gave us were very useful and reliable. Her negotiation and communication skills are superb. She worked hard and kept in constant communication with the other side to keep the transaction moving forward. I don’t know how I could have gone through the entire process without her! Sonia has done things beyond what a typical agent would do. We cannot thank her enough! Sonia, we love you! I would recommend Sonia to anyone we know. Trust me, you will be in the best of hands!” - Stephanie J. & Yibing S., sold their home. " ★★★★★" Sonia assisted us greatly being first-time home sellers. She's extremely knowledgeable and her expertise garnered an offer within ten days of listing the property which ultimately sold for $65K over asking price. She's magnificent!- Garri & Panzie M., sold their home. " ★★★★★" It was a great pleasure working with Sonia. She helped us find the perfect home for my family.

She is fully dedicated to her job. She is a very good listener and she understood our needs. In addition, she is such a nice and amazing person. Thank you, Sonia, for everything you did for us!!” - Delphine & Stephane M., sold their home and bought a new one " ★★★★★" One year after buying our first house in the US, we unfortunately needed to sell it due to a professional opportunity in another country. Sonia truly listened to our needs and concerns, and offered excellent advice about our property as well as the overall process. She was extremely professional, assertive with recommendations, and highly knowledgeable about the Real Estate Market. We really appreciate how she was on top of things and how she kept us informed every step of the way. Sonia was a pleasure to work with and made the selling of our home seamless, especially during a pandemic. " ★★★★★" In just three days our house was sold and we will be always grateful to her. We sold our house and got a great friend.- Marcelo & Flavia G., sold their home. " ★★★★★" Sonia is a passionate and fully dedicated professional!

Sonia is like no other realtor in the best of ways. Sonia has many skills such as being knowledgeable of the housing market, personable and easy to talk with, keeps you up to date every step of the journey, and a great ability to follow up on all the details (large and small). But most significantly, Sonia has the determination to guide you through and complete your real estate transaction while always considering your needs.- Michael & Donna P., sold their house.
