Sonia Margalef


Nice to meet you, I’m Sonia! With vast international sales and marketing experience working for Fortune 500 clients and a Ph.D in Language Education, I am certainly not your typical Realtor®. In fact, I go above and beyond as a one-stop shop for any and all of your real-estate needs, serving more as a counselor and advisor in your home buying or selling journey! As a long-time New Jersey resident, I specialize in key towns along the Midtown Direct train line in top school districts and vibrant communities.


My Core Values: 

  • Compassion:

    • I pride myself on offering a unique home buying and/or selling experience that is deeply personal and tailored to my clients’ needs. I’ve been in your shoes—I see you and hear you always.

  • Integrity/Honesty:

    • I prioritize open, clear communication, accessibility, and transparency throughout the entire process.

  • Knowledge:

    • I am a firm believer that knowledge is power! I aim to be your one-stop shop (from initial consultation to closing) for guidance, resources, and access to a network of lenders, inspectors, stagers, attorneys, and more.

  • Professionalism:

    • I am committed to providing you with exceptional service, dedication, and commitment in every facet. You and your family deserve top results and I’m here to provide them!

  • Efficiency

    • Whether you are planning to sell your current home, buy a new home, or invest in real estate, I strive to make this process as easy as possible for you and your family.


Born and raised near Barcelona, Spain by a line of strong female leaders and entrepreneurs, I came to the U.S. to pursue postgraduate studies at Indiana University as a Fulbright fellow. I have had the privilege of living and working all around the world.


As a Realtor®, I wear many hats! But one of my favorite hats to wear at home is the ‘mom’ hat. I’m the proud mom of two incredible kids, Victoria and Marc, who inspire me everyday! My kids and my wonderful husband, Eric, are the best support system I could ever ask for.


I love to learn, travel, read, cook, but most of all, I love what I do because I do what I love. Real estate, for me, is not about selling houses. It’s about connecting with people, listening to their stories, and working with clients that always seem to turn into life-long friends in the homes of their dreams!


I hope to be your North Star at Compass, guiding you home and providing guidance and inspiration every step of your journey. Let’s get started!
