more testimonials...

I grew up in Millburn and when it was time to sell my family's childhood home, we turned to Towne Realty and Karen Bigos. The sale occurred during an extremely busy and stressful time in our lives, and Karen and her team worked efficiently and with the utmost professionalism. They provided excellent advice based on their experience and market knowledge to make the process as easy and smooth as possible. I highly recommend their services. read more

In 2022, I made the decision to close Towne Realty Group after 16 years and to join Compass Short Hills. My team and I are exctied about this new venture and look forward to assisting buyers and sellers with great resources, support and technology. You can reach me and my colleague and project manager Meghan Fitzgerald at info@trghome.com and we promise to take good care of you.

Few Realtors know more about Millburn, Short Hills & Summit than Karen.  People actually call her as a 411 service to gather info about the communities or to ask a trivia question.  Who better to call than someone who grew up here and has lived in the area for over 55 years?  It's hard to find someone who is more knowledgeable, reliable, driven, energetic and creative than Karen Eastman Bigos, the consummate professional Realtor and marketer.

After 22 years of selling Residential Real Estate for Weichert Realtors and Burgdorff Realtors, Bigos and her former partners put their expertise into designing a new brand and launched an independent Real Estate Boutique called Towne Realty Group, LLC in February 2006.  Located in Short Hills for over 12 years, they moved Downtown to 44 Main Street, right above Millburn Standard, in Millburn. Bigos built a local team and they cover the areas of Essex, Morris and Union Counties. Their agents are well-respected and are all involved in charitble work in their hometowns and various causes.  In 2022, they passed the $2 billion in sales mark and continue to compete against much larger corporations with style and class.  

As a member of Who's Who in Luxury Real Estate, Karen often attended conferences around the world, where she networked with hundreds of Brokers. She sends and receives referrals on a weekly basis. She accepted Luxury Real Estate awards on behalf of Towne Realty for OUTSTANDING SOCIAL MEDIA SAVVY and BEST BRAND INTEGRATION, as well as a SIGNIFICANT SALES AWARD that went to one of her agents for the highest sale in Short Hills, NJ, for 2014.  No stranger to hard work, Bigos was recognized by the New Jersey Association of Realtors for earning the Circle of Excellence Award for twenty years and she was twice named the Number One Agent at Burgdorff Realtors, consistently placing in the top ten for the entire corporation year after year.  From 2011-2022, she and fellow colleagues were awarded the Five Star Professional Award for customer service and appeared in NJ Monthly Magazine.

Bigos says, "The way to be successful is to focus on total transaction service. Keeping our clients and customers well informed, being fair, treating fellow colleagues with respect, paying attention to all the details, and keeping ahead of the competition with revolutionary technology are the trademarks of our winning record in the past and what will keep us focused on building for the future." One of the best reasons to hire Bigos is that she likes her job and she is always willing to go the extra mile. Karen is all about technology, yet Towne Realty Group does business the old fashioned way; one client at a time, where the relationships with their clients and customers take precedence and the company has all the savoir-faire of the 21st Century.

Following in the footsteps of her mother, localretired Realtor Sandi Eastman, she focused her entire career in the communities where she was raised and has lived. Her involvement on various committees and boards have inspired her to donate over $115,000 of her company's profits from her company to the business community, the theatre community, local sports and supporting historic preservation through the local Historical Society. She prides herself on keeping people connected with her Millburn-Short Hills Old Days facebook group with over 3,225 members and she is now running her 4th Millburn high school class reunion, which was largely accomplished through Facebook and LinkedIn.
