Victoria F. Carter
Victoria Carter manages a nationally-ranked, 16-person real estate group in northern New Jersey that buys and sells homes along the Midtown Direct train line. She has been a resident of New Jersey since 1994 and a professional in the real estate industry since 1998. Her team averages over $100 million in dollar volume from approximately 200 transactions annually.
The Victoria Carter Group has decades of experience and a deep knowledge of the major towns along the Midtown Direct train line. The team understands the subtle differences between towns, whether they are with regard to school districts, commuting, recreation, or social activities. The award-winning Victoria Carter Group has an unparalleled knowledge of northern New Jersey real estate and quickly adapts their buying and selling strategies to the economic realities of the market. They maintain an extensive network within the towns they serve, which includes the real estate and local business communities. As a result, the team is among the first to gain the lead on new market trends and properties.
My definition of success is quite simple–success is optimizing the outcome for my client. If a family is selling a home, I want to attain the highest possible sale price. If I am representing potential homebuyers, success is when I help them find their dream home.
"I live where I work."
Victoria has lived in the area where she focuses her efforts for three decades. It allows her to centralize and focus on the communities that she is most familiar with and define the subtle differences that exist between towns. She knows that it is often these small differences that help people to feel most comfortable in a home and community. The most common differences that occur between towns include the school districts, daycare facilities, social activities, economic information, community groups as well as the age range and the general life stage of the community’s residents.

We were in search of our first home and the entire process was new and a bit daunting to us. Victoria guided us every step of the way, gave us honest and expert opinions of different properties we were interested in and when we finally found our dream home, she made everything we needed to do feel very straightforward and clear. She provided referrals for other professionals we needed to work with who made the final and most stressful part of buying a home an absolute breeze. I can’t recommend Victoria enough. She truly cares about her clients and is a lovely person to know. read lesscaroline a fayen12/01/2023Bought a Single Family home in 2023 in Verona twp., NJ.

Elisa was never pushy or intrusive, but she skillfully guided us with immense patience through the complexities of the American real estate market, and more specifically, that of Verona, NJ. Elisa explained in a clear and detailed manner how the local market works, helping us understand the main dynamics that characterize it. Initially, our goal was primarily to understand how the market functioned, without having an urgent need to purchase. Despite this, Elisa demonstrated an extraordinary ability to grasp exactly what we were looking for, helping us define the conditions that would allow us to achieve our dream. In less than two weeks from our first meeting, we fell head over heels for a house adjacent to the golf course. Although there was strong competition, thanks to Elisa's advice, we submitted a winning offer. Our profile, being Europeans who had only recently settled in NJ, could have been a hurdle, but thanks to Elisa's professionalism and commitment, our offer was accepted. Elisa assisted us at every stage of the process, from submitting the offer to the property transfer, ensuring that everything was executed with utmost correctness and trying to expedite each procedure as much as possible to bring the closing date closer. We can't help but express our total enthusiasm for Elisa's work, and we highly recommend her to anyone looking for a home in Verona, NJ. A heartfelt thank you, Elisa, for making this journey so simple and enjoyable! read lessclauvivenziousa10/26/2023Sold a home in 2023.

We found her to be an excellent partner throughout the process which resulted in the sale of our property. Victoria leads a solid team that helped us sell the house and while she relied on others for aspects we found her to always be accessible and on top of all details. She was able to pull in various contacts from her network to help with matters that came up. Ours was not a simple transaction; there were several bumps in the road forcing us to make hard choices. We appreciated not only her knowledge and experience to work through these but her level-headed demeanor and business judgement. Never conveying panic or frustration, she would lay out facts and options and let us figure out the right solution. We thank her and her team and would highly recommend Victoria for anyone seeking to buy or sell in the area. read lessrpmcc10/22/2023

When we bought our house she was always there to answer any questions, connected us with reliable contractors, and helped navigate issues we came across. We loved her so much we asked her to rent our apartment and she displayed the same level of commitment and enthusiasm, leaving us thoroughly satisfied with the results.

We were first time homebuyers and knew nothing about the market or the process. Donna was patient, supportive, responsive, and with us every step of the way. She truly got to know us, what we wanted, and what we needed. She quickly became our friend! We could put all of our trust in her at every turn and it felt so good to have that stability — it was particularly incredible having her in our corner during the offer process. When we finally found “the one,” Donna recommended outstanding vendors who were all a dream to work with. She is so knowledgeable and so well connected. If you’re looking in NJ, you need to call Donna. We’d rate her 100 stars if we could! read lessLexieMcInerney9/08/2023

Her relationships enabled us to be first to view and the confidence to proceed in a very fast moving market with clarity and certainty. Moving not only cross country but being from overseas and unfamiliar with the area, Victoria made sure we had the right people working for us, had the right information available to us and beyond the purchase is still making herself available to ensure we are set up with all the services and contacts afterwards. We will without hesitation be recommending her to all our contacts if they are looking to purchase anywhere in the North Essex area. read lessjklee 847/20/2023Sold a Single Family home in 2023 in South orange, NJ.

I have 35+ yrs of purchasing and selling many, many homes, some with "excellent" Agents, BUT Victoria stands clearly heads & shoulders above the rest. Patient and kind, Victoria's real estate knowledge, expertise and instincts are unrivaled. Victoria was open and transparent through the whole process. It was clear from the start that she really CARED about us and understood our needs. And, incredibly available -- ALWAYS just a phone call away! Victoria just makes things happen!! She gets you to the Finish Line with so little effort on your part. Victoria made the entire process seamless AND stress-free. Additionally, what makes Victoria stand out vs. other agents, she brings a large team of "support" executives who specifically work with her. Her team anticipates and guides you through every single detail. As a result, you gain such Trust, confidence and peace-of-mind through the whole process ...... from Showing through Closing!! Finally, Victoria is an exceptional negotiator and a true master at "getting the deal done". We highly, highly recommend Victoria Clark. Work with the BEST! read lesssdrl5/21/2023

She came highly recommended for her sterling expertise and professionalism. I couldn’t have asked for a better partner to handle such a life-changing initiative as the sale of my home of 25 years. Victoria instills confidence in you from the first meeting on to the final sale of your home. She listens to what you have to say and offers the best advice, always prioritizing the seller's interests. Victoria is very knowledgeable, understanding, on top of her game (without being pushy) and free to speak anytime, as is her staff. She priced my home strategically and set up the marketing at a good pace for a sure sale. Victoria and her team accomplished this transaction on the initial showing of my home!! Not only was the process fast, my home sold at a price well above listing. Victoria was by my side every step to ensure any challenges would be resolved with expediency.

From the moment we met Victoria, we felt confident that we were in good hands. She is extremely knowledgeable as a real-estate agent, but also, she is such a kind and empathetic person. She was very understanding and respectful of our recent loss. Priceless! We had never sold a house before, but Victoria and her staff were wonderful. She explained the process clearly and made herself available for us. We felt comfortable to call her, anytime and with any concerns. If she couldn’t take my call, at that moment, she ALWAYS returned my calls quickly. Unfortunately, before we could even get the house on the market, my brother passed. I can’t tell you how overwhelmed I was; totally devasted!!! And, once again Victoria and her staff were there for me!!! For ex., I needed help to remove 56 years of “stuff” out of the house; Victoria was able to recommend someone (and he, too, was amazing!!!) I needed to update our house regarding fire prevention, and she was also able to recommend someone (amazing) to help me with that. I know my situation is unique but after all I went through, Victoria was not only my realtor, but a friend and extended family member. I will never forget this time in my life, and I will always have a place in my heart for Victoria. I know God sent her to me. I can’t imagine what I would have done without her. So, if you are selling or buying a house, I strongly recommend Victoria and her staff at Weichert Realtors! They are amazing!
