On Thursday, February 23rd Alexander Anderson Real Estate Group hosted its first annual Red Carpet Open House Event to benefit the Joseph M. Sanzari Children’s Hospital at Hackensack University Medical Center.
With pending homes sales at a 2 year high (according to the National Association of Realtors) Eric Anderson and Corrado Belgiovine owners of Alexander Anderson Real Estate Group decided to celebrate the recovering economy by giving back to the Hackensack community.

“We are seeing a spike in both buyer and seller confidence. And we want the success of our industry to contribute to the success of our overall community. So this spring we are celebrating the recovery of the real estate market by sharing the good fortune with the Joseph M. Sanzari Children’s Hospital.” Said Eric Anderson, CEO of Alexander Anderson as he joined Hackensack Mayor Jorge E.
