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

Leslie Seale and Steven Hess of Novus Equities have been developing unique properties in the city of Passaic for over 25 years. They were responsible for the city’s first live-work artist loft building bringing imagination and commerce to our town center.

Novus Equities is a brand that leads and inspires.  Leslie Seale and Steven Hess have been exemplary in embracing this municipality as a civically engaged development firm.  With a focus on the distinct characteristics of our city, they have coordinated and cooperated whenever their assistance or engagement was required.  Without their active help, we would not have been able to enjoy the success and progress that has been collectively made.  This city would have a completely different advocacy vibe without Novus Equities.  Let’s make sure they continue to build.

Leslie Seale and Steven Hess truly understand all elements of real estate development. They constantly work the numbers to get the best value for their money and it shows in the long term viability of their development projects. Urban redevelopment isn’t a quick solution and they have the ability to stay with a project through all the ups and downs.

I’ve been living at 288 Rosa Parks Blvd for 17 years. I enjoy living here, the facilities have been upgraded beautifully. Maintenance requests are handled in a timely manner. Heat is great and bottom line I love my apartment.
