She was previously an elementary school teacher in Florida, where she also earned a master’s degree in library science. “ Scheier’s clients and customers benefit from her background of seeking the best answers to many questions that arise in either selling or purchasing a home,” said Hyland. “She constantly adds to her real estate knowledge and is currently a candidate for the CRS designation.” For information, visit her website at www.sussexhome.com. Hoskins is a 20-year plus veteran in real estate, with prior experience in Passaic, Morris, Warren and Sussex counties. “His background as a former councilman with building and grounds experience is a help for buyer and client assistance,” noted Hyland.

He is a graduate of Purdue University in West Lafayette, Ind., and is a veteran of World War II, having served as a B17 pilot with the 8th Air Force in Great Britain.
