Scudder Falls Bridge Improvements to Begin

January 8, 2016

scudder falls bridge

Preparation work has begun for the Scudder Falls Bridge construction project slated to begin in 2017. The bridge connects Bucks Co, PA & Mercer Co, NJ. A bottleneck during commute hours on I-95, the span (built in 1959) was recently deemed “functionally obsolete” and is long due for upgrades. Commuters and businesses in both Mercer County and Bucks County will benefit from the work done on the Scudder Falls.  Read more about the project on nj.com.

August 25, 2015

275 Phillips Hero Shot 275 Phillips Lobby Span

Mercer Oak Realty is proud to list +/10,000 sf of office space at Princeton Crossroads Corporate Center!

Princeton Crossroads Corporate Center is located at 275 Phillips Boulevard in Ewing, NJ. The building has easy access to/from 95- right at Exit 4 for Route 31 & boasts recently renovated common areas.

The location is great for a commute from the NJ or PA side of the river. Not only are local amenities abundant in Pennington, Lawrenceville, Hopewell and Ewing- but the building is also quite close (10 minutes) to Route 1 amenities (without dealing with the traffic during peak drive-time). The SpringHill Suites Marriot is within walking distance and the Trenton-Mercer Airport (Frontier Airlines) is a 5 minute drive, making business travel a breeze. If getting to Philadelphia is a concern, jump on 95 right next to the building for a straight shot into the city in 45 minutes.

Exterior offices, interior offices, open bullpen space and a kitchenette make up the approximately 10,000 sf space. Oversized windows and an 11 foot ceiling add a bright quality office.

Please see our property listing on the Properties page for more information, photos and a flyer.

We are hiring!

December 15, 2014

We are looking to add a Broker/Salesperson to the current Mercer Oak team- does the below job description sound like you or someone you know? If so, email a cover letter & resume to info@merceroak.com. (PDF version available here: MOR Sales Person Job Description)

Sales Person Job Description

Mercer Oak Realty is seeking a driven, aggressive individual who is looking to work as a Broker/Salesperson in a fast-paced commercial real estate office in the Princeton, NJ area.

Job responsibilities include working with a team of professionals to learn the business but also requires the successful applicant be able to be a self-starter who is a people-person and someone who is looking for unlimited compensation and know that for every 100 prospective sales targets only a very few (maybe one) will turn into a closed deal.

You will need to:

Work to develop potential leads in the marketplace by soliciting business from hundreds of prospective clients. This will include phone cold-calling and canvassing buildings and require that you are quick on your feet and good at getting others to talk in potentially challenging circumstances.

Cooperate with Senior Brokers in our office to turn potential leads into closed sales. As a Junior Broker, you would uncover opportunities for tenants and buyers to acquire office space, you would introduce Senior Brokers to the prospective clients and learn the process of negotiating and closing lease deals and sales. Over time, you would become increasingly independent and able to run deals on your own and garner a larger share of the commissions.

Learn the process of transacting in commercial real estate. We would pay for you to get your real estate license and provide you with a fully-loaded database of potential clients, teach you how to solicit business, help you to create and present financial analysis, negotiate leases and discern the difference between prospective clients who are wasting your time from clients who can make you money.

Attend industry events, Chamber of Commerce Meetings, join Clubs, be a part of the fabric of the community to build relationships and become known. Mercer Oak encourages all employees to give back to the community.

We are looking for someone with:
• Sales experience, although this is not required.
• Have strong interpersonal skills.
• Proficient in the MS Office Package (Word, Excel, Power Point, Outlook, etc)
• Must be driven, self-start, ambitious, and seeking long term career with advancement and unlimited earning potential.
• Be capable of maintaining a high energy level and have the ability to work independently, as well as a team player.
• Must be an honest person with good judgment in all business matters.
• Real estate license is required for this position, but not required to apply.

We need candidates with an outstanding entrepreneurial work ethic with great time management skills. If you have a strong interest in sales, marketing, interpersonal skills and communication skills, and have proficient computer skills, please submit your resume.

Marketour: The Easiest Way to Find Your New Office

November 4, 2014

You may have noticed a new feature on our website- Marketour. Have you checked it out yet?

Marketour is a tool for any company interested in learning more about office space in the Princeton Market.

“Marketour started out as an in-house presentation tool years ago. Working with our tenant representation clients, we realized just how useful having an unbiased, birds eye view of the entire Princeton market is. We eat, breath and sleep this market, so we are constantly aware of what is and isn’t available. Our clients are too busy running their own businesses to pay attention to that.” explains CEO, Aubrey Haines. “With Marketour, companies can browse the market, get a sense of what’s out there and then give us a call to discuss their options. Marketour helps our clients leverage their valuable time and allows us to focus on the most important aspect of a commercial real estate transaction- the art of the deal.”

President, Sab Russo says, “Marketour is dynamic and we plan to continue to make changes and additions to create a better tool for companies searching for office space.”

Currently, the public version is available on the website. A version with significantly more information is available to Mercer Oak clients provided with a dedicated login.

Whether you’re looking to move in the next 6 months or just want to get a better idea of whats out there for future plans- Marketour is the easiest way to find your new office.
