About Douglass Gillespie

June 2022, I retired after 25 years as a full time New Jersey public school educator and am now a REALTOR® Sales Associate working for Village Square REALTORS® in Montclair.


As a highly qualified teacher, I gained over 25 years of experience setting goals and creating plans to meet those goals, not unlike getting a house ready to sell or finding the right house for you and helping you buy it!


I am adept at utilizing benchmarks and other assessment tools to determine progress towards achieving those goals, and as a teacher, I used that information to make adjustments to better serve my clientele, the students. Likewise, I will use these same skills to make sure you are on track to meet all of your housing needs.


Also, as any parent of a teenager knows, I was constantly in negotiations -- with students, parents, administrators! In fact, I had been practicing my negotiation skills for almost 30 years. (More if you count my own teenage years!)


I have lived in this area of Essex County for over 45 years, moving to Glen Ridge back in 1972. As my boss Vinnie Lombardo from Vinnie's Pizza (formerly on Bay Street, now on Broad Street in Bloomfield) used to say, This is MY territory!


I will provide exceptional real estate service to my home buying and selling clients. With a focus on residential real estate sales and rentals in Bloomfield, Nutley, Glen Ridge, Upper Montclair, Montclair, Verona, Essex Fells, Caldwell, West Caldwell, West Orange, as well as parts of the Bergen, Morris, Union Somerset, and Passaic County -- really all areas of northern New Jersey -- I will utilize my boundless enthusiasm, budding experience, diverse knowledge, skillful negotiating, and a highly effective team of top professionals who have successfully completed decades of real estate transactions to meet every expectation a client has.


I am never too busy for any of your referrals! Call me today at 862.202.4790 for help with all your realty needs.  Rest assured, if I can't help you, I will find the person who can.


You'll never walk alone!
