HAUNTED RENOVATIONS, GHOSTS AND OTHER ODDITIES!
To get to know our clients better, Clear Skies Title Agency visited with power couple Jerome Fazzari and Lorna McManus of GreenPen Investments in Jersey City. We immediately knew this was going to be fun, when we asked about their experience as real-estate investors and Lorna explained, “There are too many crazy things to pick just one.” Jerome laughed and said, “We once bought and renovated a house that the contractors swore was haunted … it definitely was a fun experience.” “How about the time we bought that large Victorian home with eight bedrooms,” Lorna said, barely able to stay in her seat. “There were so many rooms and stairwells, it felt like a maze. When I started exploring the interior, I noticed a doorway in the master bedroom that I did not remember seeing previously, so I entered and discovered a gorgeous vintage sink and claw-foot tub.” “I didn’t even know the master bedroom had a bathroom,” Jerome said with a grin.
After 10 years of business success, Lorna said their secret is “persistence and flexibility,” and Jerome added, “discipline, consistency, and decisiveness.” Their success includes having worked on projects as small as single-family homes to large 20+ unit buildings.
When not flipping houses, Jerome competes in weightlifting and wants to become a “Master of Sport” in the kettlebell snatch; while Lorna is planning to go to Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights soon, maybe even this year!
