Robert (“Bob”) Martie, executive vice president of the New Jersey Region for Colliers International, says that despite the economic unknowns—the ongoing European debt market crisis and the upcoming U.S. presidential elections—what’s happening in New Jersey today versus during the economic downturn of 2009 is profoundly different and positive. Although things are slow, Gov. Christie and his administration have had a positive impact through the provision of development incentives and an improvement to the state’s reputation. Population is growing and New Jersey has seen job growth over the last nine consecutive quarters.
