Olga began her real estate career at the Oldwick office of Weichert, Realtors® where she earned the “Rookie of the Year” award during her first year in real estate in 2007. Olga is truly passionate about real estate and takes each transaction very personally. She understands the magnitude of choices and challenges sellers and buyers are faced with and guides them with her knowledge and experience. She decided to join Leaf, Realtors® so she could work in an environment where her passion is supported by a team environment, common vision, and the present-day approach.
Olga is dedicated to finding her buyer clients the perfect fit, whether it is a “starter” or “forever” home, and getting the best possible terms of sale for her seller clients. Olga recognizes that because every real estate transaction is fundamentally personal — people are often making the biggest financial and domestic decisions of their lives — it is essential to support clients with personalized attention and knowledge of current local market conditions. And Olga’s expertise as an agent who had not only experienced the collapse of the real estate market, but helped her clients successfully navigate through it, enables her to counsel her clients with creative approaches to overcoming obstacles.
Before starting her career in real estate, Olga earned a degree in Jurisprudence from Latvia State University and worked as an undercover police officer in the Central District of Riga, Latvia. After moving to the United States in 1993, Olga was an investigator at Macy’s Department Stores in New York City. She later worked as an Office Manager at Vassilaros Coffee Company after graduating from Chubb University in 2000.
Olga is a member of the Garden State Multiple Listing Service (GSMLS), the National Association of Realtors® (NAR), New Jersey Realtors (NJ Realtors), and the Hunterdon/Somerset Association of Realtors (H/SAR).
In 2002 Olga and her husband Alec moved to Hunterdon County, NJ to start and raise their family. Together with her husband and teenage daughter, Olga enjoys international travel, hiking, and shares her daughter’s passion for horseback riding.
Olga is fluent in Russian.
Olga’s past clients have great things to say about her!
Because I knew of Olga’s dedicated work ethic, intellect, and direct but professional assertiveness, I asked her to help me with a challenging commercial, multi-use property purchase a bit out of her service area. Through complications and obstacles she persevered and did what needed to be done in order for me to get the property I wanted. She stepped up when my counsel faltered, and also worked with the listing agent persistently when called for. She was a key player in making this difficult, 5 month process come to fruition. I would highly recommend her now in any type of real estate transaction and just wish I could bring her with me anywhere I move! Lisa H., from Frenchtown NJ (client – buyer)

Olga Kozhukhov is an amazing realtor. But beyond that she is an amazing person. She made the whole process which can be very stressful as pleasant as possible. She is extremely knowledgeable and patient and she really cares about people she works with. There is not a better realtor then her and we are extremely happy and grateful that she was our realtor.

Consuella, Union Township (client — buyer)
Olga worked with us for almost 18 months taking care to find homes that matched our particular needs. She became part of the family during our search! I was secretly impressed that she stuck with us for so long as our search for the perfect home dragged on. I figured she would move on to the next couple when we hadn’t found and closed on a home within the first six months. I am happy that she proved me wrong! Olga was a trooper having to show the same home twice on numerous occasions because my husband and I oftentimes had conflicting work schedules, but she did so without complaint and she always greeted us with a smile. Olga had great knowledge of the local area, expert knowledge of the process. Her responsiveness was exceptional. At one point when we were making an offer on a house she was there for us communicating with us while she was on vacation. I appreciated Olga’s pragmatism and straightforwardness as well as her guidance when it came to negotiations. She was extremely helpful to us throughout this stressful process. I highly recommend Olga as your next agent!. February 27, 2018

Olga represented me in a purchase of my house in NJ and I could not have been happier. From the moment I started working with her I’ve realized that she no doubt had my best interests in mind. I was looking for a house near a lake, which was challenging as many were fixer-uppers. Olga was very patient in supporting me in this tedious search – she was consistently finding new potential locations and houses, and consistently advising against wrong options. She was so knowledgeable, and so engaged during the inspection process (and we went through 2, as the first purchase fell through due to issues with the house). Best of all, she never hesitated to provide an honest assessment of the house whenever the potential resell value was questionable. I ended up buying a house I now absolutely love and having Olga to support my decisions was essential and greatly appreciated. I highly recommend Olga for her impeccable integrity and dedication.

We had a great experience with Olga selling our home. She was on top of every aspect of the sale and made sure every detail was taken care of. She put more effort into selling our house than any realtor we’ve ever had, hosting Open Houses every week to maximize exposure to the house for potential buyers. I would highly recommend her. She was a pleasure to work with! February 1, 2017
Brigitte, Lebanon Township (client — seller)
My husband and I were very pleased with our listing. It looked amazing! Olga’s hard work and knowledge of what to sell a house really paid off. Our house went under contract about 2 months after we put it on the market. We highly recommend Olga Kozhukhov. January 17, 2017
Robert W., Clinton Township (client — seller)
I have bought and sold 5 homes in the past four years and Olga is the best realtor I have worked with. She is extremely professional and on top of the real estate market. She will assess the market accurately and provide the best advice for marketing and pricing your home. Olga had a contract on my home after only 5 days on the market and it went to closing on time with no issues. Olga goes above and beyond to get your home on the market fast and in the best way possible. She held a very successful open house as soon as the home was on the market. Olga has my highest recommendation for a seller’s agent or a buyer’s agent. May 23, 2016

Olga assisted us with a house purchase after we had lost our previous house in a flood. She not only helped us find an amazing house at a great price but helped us deal with the challenges of temporary housing and provided emotional support to my family knowing that we had just lost so many personal items and memories. Olga went well beyond our expectations. She was patient as we worked through the financing challenges of resolving our previous house while moving forward with the new house. We would highly recommend working with Olga if you want someone committed to your needs and not just anxious to make a sale. With Olga’s help we negotiated an incredible deal on the new house even though her firm and colleague were representing the other side of the transaction. We trust Olga as someone who clearly goes above and beyond in representing our interests! April 19, 2016
Bruce D., Tewksbury Township (client — seller)
Not being from the area, I needed to find a local real estate agent who knew the marketplace and market value to sell my Dad’s townhouse. It had already been listed for 6 months, by another real estate agent, with little movement and low activity. I replaced agents and found Olga, who from the beginning, offered valuable advice and suggestions to get the unit sold. We got lots of interest, from her weekly open houses, and before I knew it, my Dad’s townhouse was sold at a price that was higher than other similar units. Olga is extremely professional, hard working, honest, responsive, proactive, tenacious, organized, and she definitely exceeded my expectations. If you’re looking for the ideal real estate agent, her name is Olga Kozhukhov. April 15, 2016
Vitaly M., Washington Township (client — buyer)
Olga helped my wife and I purchase our first home this year. We found a house that we loved and Olga was able to show us the home, put in an offer, and negotiate the price into our comfort level all within a day or two. During our due diligence period there were several issue that arose with the property. Olga was able to guide us through the failed septic issues, zoning issues, and several code violations quickly and as painlessly as possible. Olga has great relationships with title agents, home inspectors, lawyers and other people that are good at what they do and strive to make the whole transaction as quick and painless as possible. My wife and I highly recommend Olga for your next home purchase or sale. April 10, 2016
Steve K., Readington Township (client — buyer)
Olga was a great help in buying our home and helping to find renters. Since we couldn’t move right away we needed to rent the house for a little while. Olga went above and beyond what was necessary to help us close on time and to prepare the place for rental. She found us a painter and spent her own time to shop for drapes for us. Olga is a great person and I would highly recommend her for any realty needs. April 10, 2016
