HARRISON, N.J., Feb. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- An accidental visit to 221 Bergen in Harrison during a marathon apartment hunt ended with Heather C. becoming one of the property's first residents, according to Coldwell Banker New Homes. The combination of location, property and service stood out for this young professional who moved in mid-December.

"I stumbled on 221 Bergen accidentally," said Heather. "I was headed to another apartment and took a wrong turn. It just looked so pretty that I stopped. I immediately went to the website to make sure that it was in my price range because it was so nice."

221 Bergen was different from others she had toured. "You could see the quality," she said. "It was super bright with lots of space and nice big wide doorways. The apartments had full-size washers and dryers, and there were great amenities. This really stood out as something special." Heather also liked that it was pet-friendly for her Bengal cat, and close to the PATH. "I don't have a car so it's super important for me to be close to the train. It's a five-minute walk to the train. It takes me 28 minutes door-to-door for my commute."

She noted that leasing agents from other apartments pushed for a deposit to hold a space while 221 Bergen used a customer-friendly approach. "The leasing agent gave me his cell phone and invited me to text anytime," she said. "I ended up going back the same day to tour again."

The outstanding customer service continued during move-in. "I moved on a Saturday, and before my friends and family arrived, the superintendent had started unloading."

221 Bergen features one- and two-bedroom apartments, each with a washer and dryer. Several home designs feature walk-in closets. The two-bedroom apartments are great for roommates, because they feature "split bedrooms" (no shared walls) for additional privacy. Elevators are an added convenience. Private garages, surface parking, and freestanding storage units are available. 221 Bergen utilizes the ButterflyMX™ secure entry system, which monitors visitors and provides photo and time stamp tracking and video messaging.

Amenities are provided at no additional monthly cost and include a Residents' Lounge with its own Starbucks machine, Rooftop Terrace and 24-hour Fitness Center.

Monthly rentals start at $1,840. 221 Bergen is open daily by appointment. Call (862) 231-6190 or visit http://www.221bergen.com.
