ERA Central Realty Group and ERA Central Levinson, a central New Jersey real estate leader, has announced a relationship with HomeAdvisor, a leading digital marketplace evolving the way homeowners connect with service professionals. The collaboration allows clients to access HomeAdvisor’s network of top-rated and reviewed service professionals in their area through a self-service website or a dedicated call center.

“Our objective is to help the agent maintain their relationship with the client beyond the
transaction, and put the agent at the center of the home ownership lifecycle,” said Scott Lauri, co-CEO of ERA Central. “Agents have always made local recommendations to clients on services and products, but now we can funnel all of that client activity through a website that allows the broker and agent to stay valuable and visible years after the transaction. These connections could translate into more referrals, more ancillary income, and most importantly, more repeat business.”

Marlboro Jewish Center Preschool is set to open its newest enrichment space, the STEAM Lab, which was created to provide a unique and dedicated creative space, with multi-media components all centered around the main pillars of STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics).

Beginning in March, all MJC Preschool pupils will have the opportunity to visit the new STEAM Lab weekly as part of their “specials,” similar to their music and other enrichment programs. The space will encourage students to explore and engage in different activities that inspire their curiosity.

“It is important for us to stay on the cutting edge of early childhood education and we believe exposure to these big ideas at an early age is a catalyst for the love of learning that will extend throughout the children’s lives. The lab is a dedicated area that focuses on their imagination and how powerful that can be.” said Rita Rashotsky, director of the Marlboro Jewish Center Preschool.

The Marlboro Jewish Center Preschool welcomes families of all faiths, ethnicities and backgrounds.
