MAPLEWOOD, NJ - B.I.G. (Believe Inspire Grow), New Jersey’s fast growing women’s empowerment organization is proud to be strongly affiliated with award-winning Realtor Caroline Gosselin. Caroline first introduced B.I.G. to the women of South Orange and Maplewood (SOMA) as a co-leader of the B.I.G. organization more than three years ago.
Thanks largely to Gosselin’s magnetic networking and relationship building skills, B.I.G. SOMA became comprised of nearly 30 members of the region’s top entrepreneurial women and has remained so ever since.
With more than seven years of real estate experience throughout northern New Jersey, Gosselin is the head of The Gosselin Group at Prominent Properties Sotheby’s International Realty. She has dedicated her career to helping young families find the homes of their dreams within any budget. Recognized as an award winning realtor, Caroline is a marketing aficionado, a skilled negotiator and a creative problem solver.
A single mother in Maplewood, Caroline knows first-hand the challenges facing single income families who seek balance and fulfillment in their busy lives. Caroline attributes the support she has received from other women entrepreneurs as the key to getting her to where she is today. As a result, Caroline dedicates her life to supporting the efforts of entrepreneurial people, particularly women entrepreneurs. And her work has paid off. Most notably she was selected as one of the 2014 Top 150 New Jersey Leading Women Entrepreneurs and featured in October 2014 issue of New Jersey Monthly magazine.
Most recently she took her entrepreneurial mission globally when she went to Ireland with fellow Leading Women Entrepreneurs to mentor and share best practices with women entrepreneurs of Cork County. As a result of this initiative, a delegate from Cork, including the Cork County Mayor Alan Coleman, will be reunited with Caroline and fellow U.S. women entrepreneurs during a series of business building events being held throughout New Jersey during the first week of December.
Having lived and travelled internationally, Caroline fully realizes the pressures of relocating. Born to French parents in Houston, she speaks fluent French and is highly proficient in Spanish. She moved to Paris in 2000, where she worked as the office manager for the Deputy Chief of Mission of the United States Mission to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and later went on to complete her masters degree in International Affairs. This experience gives Caroline a unique and global perspective when it comes to serving her clients. Keeping their individual cultures and personal desires top of mind when at all times, Caroline is keenly sensitive to offering housing options that enable her clients to acclimate quickly to their new communities, as well as transition smoothly from their existing homes when circumstances demand.
To date, Gosselin has successfully negotiated more than $30 million worth of residential real estate transactions and has received numerous business awards including the “Mover and Shaker of the Year Award,” New Jersey Association of Realtors’ Circle of Excellence and the Five Star Real Estate Agent Award.
Because there’s always more to learn in the ever-changing world of real estate, Caroline keeps current on the industry standards and technological advances by attending numerous real estate and certification seminars and conferences.
An active pillar in her community, she volunteers for a variety of local, regional and national organizations, including the National Association of Realtors, the Community FoodBank of New Jersey and the PTA at Clinton Elementary where her son attends school.
Caroline believes passionately that she has a responsibility to make the world a better place for her own family, her community, the real estate clients she represents and world at large. She takes these responsibilities extremely seriously and finds true reward and affirmation for her unwavering efforts when her clients ensure their full trust in her to successfully navigate the pathway to their next home.
