Soila Columbie Joins ERA Justin’s Family of Real Estate Professionals

ERA Justin Realty is delighted to announce that our exceptional community of agents is growing with the addition of new Sales Associate Soila Columbie. 

Soila has worked in real estate for the past 20 years, but her interest in residential homes started back in high school as a student at nearby Harrison High. “My friends and I used to drive around looking at all the beautiful homes in this area. They are dream homes,” says Soila, “And now it’s my job to actually go inside them, admire the architecture and decor and help homebuyers acquire them.”

Soila grew up in New Jersey but spent a few years living in the Caribbean before deciding to come back home and raise her kids. 

She now lives in North Arlington with her two sons, 18-year-old Evan who is a Senior at North Arlington High and 30-year-old Pedro who is actively searching for his first home. “It is a pleasure to be able to use my real estate skills and guide my own son through the process of being a first time homeowner,” says Soila.

In addition to her home life, Soila also enjoys traveling abroad. She has been to more than a dozen countries including all over Europe, Japan, Singapore and Korea. “My experience in foreign countries has exposed me to many different cultures and people, many of whom choose to move to the melting pot that is New Jersey.” Soila says this helps her identify with clients from all over the world who are making their homes here.

Plus, Soila is bi-lingual. She can speak, read and write in both Spanish and English which helps immensely when clients need complicated real estate paperwork translated.

Soila loves how every day is different in real estate. She loves the challenge of selling homes and the thrill she feels when she matches clients to the unique home of their dreams. “Nothing makes me happier than seeing the joy in my client’s faces as they receive the key to their new home for the first time,” says Soila.

Soila’s clients come back to her again and again as their needs and wants in a house change. “The idea of your dream home evolves as people’s lifestyles change and grow through the different stages of their lives,” says Soila who is getting ready to downsize to a one-story ranch house herself, as her youngest son approaches graduation from high school.

If you are looking for an agent who can help you find happiness and stability in a home for years to come, Soila or any of the agents at ERA Justin Realty can help. Give us a call at (201) 939-7500.
