Novus Equities is a uniquely compassionate and community focused real estate investment company.

Novus Equities, a real estate investment company founded in 1997 by Steven Hess and Leslie Seale, consistently strives to have the Best Building on the Block. We do this through creatively caring for our collection of buildings regarding renovations, color choices, and careful maintenance. But, to know Novus is to know we are not just about the bricks and mortar! Novus is also actively encouraging community, both in our buildings, as well as in the cities we serve.

Novus has taken older, tired, and unloved buildings, and turned them into real homes for our residents to enjoy. Primarily invested in Northern NJ cities, our buildings help fill the need for “workforce” housing. Our residents may work as hospital orderlies, street cleaners, and others providing essential services to so many in the community.

We do this with a commitment to compassion, mutual respect, and gratitude for our tenants. Many times, tenants who have moved for a job or life event return years later to become residents of ours again when life circumstances allow because they missed being a part of the Novus community. We have multiple families, and generations of families, living with us, which is a testament to the mutually fulfilling relationships we have created over the decades.

Novus is proud that we can, and do, provide a level of service and surroundings that people want call home!
