New South Orange Village Administrator






Barry Lewis Jr. has been chosen as the new Village administrator and will begin work on Jan. 30, overseeing the finances of South Orange.  He was the unanimous choice of the Board of Trustees after a long search.

Previously an administrator in Mine Hill, Spring Lake and Mountain Lakes,  Lewis will replace interim Administrator Reagan Burkholder, who was appointed Sept. 15 after then-Administrator John Gross accepted a similar position in West Orange. John Gross will continue to serve as the village’s chief financial officer.

Area Real Estate Sales Figures (4q & full year 2011)

Here are the 4th quarter and full year end 2011 real estate figures for our area.

A dip in the number of 4th quarter sales is usually seasonal.  The major dip in sales price and list price in the 4th quarter is more than a seasonal dip.  Home prices have dropped yet again but we’re hoping to stabilize and begin the slow climb back in 2012.
