A native New Yorker, Kathy McClearn grew up in Manhattan and graduated from Fordham University where she then began her career in sales in advertising as a representative for The Wall Street Journal. Soon after her daughter was born, Kathy and her husband moved to the beautiful town of Montclair, New Jersey where they have lived for 20+ years.
Kathy became involved in her community in Montclair, becoming part of the PTA, the school review, the writer’s room, and a board member of the Montclair Fund For Educational Excellence. She is familiar with both the public and private schools in the area and her family is involved in a variety of athletic activities including soccer, lacrosse, tennis and football.
Kathy was also heavily involved in fundraising for noteworthy causes including The Montclair, Glen Ridge, Nutley Red Cross; Montclair Schools Rock; The Upper Montclair Business Association; The Montclair Garden Club, and The Junior League of Montclair-Newark. She became a trustee of the Montclair Scholarship Fund and is now the sitting co-president.
After re-entering the working world as a stylist for the Worth Collection, a luxury line of woman’s clothing, Kathy is excited to begin a career as a real estate sales associate. Her extensive sales experience and diverse knowledge of the area is an asset that she brings as a new member of the Halstead New Jersey real estate team.
Her love of home architecture and design and her ability to listen to her clients and work tirelessly on their behalf makes her the perfect agent to make your real estate dreams come true.
"My brother, our friend, and I, all newly employed college graduates, worked with Kathleen McClearn to rent a house in the Montclair area. From the moment she met us no-questions-asked at a property after we called her impromptu on Father’s Day morning, across the property applications she helped us with and the many more properties she showed us, Kathy’s professionalism, flexibility, and commitment to finding us the ideal renting situation were second to none. Kathy went to bat for us, inexperienced renters, with agents and landlords numerous times, and worked tirelessly to coordinate showings with us in spite of our three disparate work schedules. She treated us with patience and respect and took occasion to educate us on the renting process, and it felt like she was looking out for us like we were family. I would—and will—highly recommend her to anyone searching for homes or apartments in the Montclair area." – Sean L.
