Bergen County NJ Real Estate Tour  

Ho-Ho-Kus is one of the smallest and oldest communities in the area.  It is also one of our favorites.

Development in Ho-Ho-Kus began in the 1700's.  While the community's colonial heritage is reflected in its architecture, you will discover a plethora of housing designs.  Tudors, cottages, ranches, split levels, colonials, and luxurious mansions dot the landscape.

There is a elementary school in Ho-Ho-Kus for students through the eighth grade, and high school students attend Northern Highlands, ranked #1 in the county and #4 statewide by New Jersey Monthly magazine.

In the center of town, along Sheridan Avenue and Franklin Turnpike, are a handful of brick and Tudor buildings occupied by convenience stores, antique shops, bakeries, and other shops. With its covered porch and upholstered reading chairs, the Worth-Pinkham Memorial Library feels more like a cozy den than a public building.

Ho-Ho-Kus is a great commuter town.  It has quick and convenient access to the NY metro area.  However, the prime location and the transportation conveniences do not diminish or interfere with the serene atmosphere evident throughout the town.
