Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value Brian Johnson is excellent!

He is professional, knowledgeable and has amazing follow up! Never had to worry because I knew Brian was on top of everything.

Purchasing a house in today’s market is an arduous undertaking.

Banks have imposed excessively restrictive lending standards and buyers and sellers are often far apart in their expectations. Against that backdrop, Lydia Bourgeois was extremely shrewd and helpful, taking steps to streamline the process while displaying admirable patience with all the parties involved. Most importantly, you always knew she was on your side.

Helen showed me a rental property, which did not work out for me.

However, she was personable, knowledgeable, and honest. She wasn't pushy or impaitent, which I have found to be the case with many other realtors. Even after I told her that I had found a rental that she was not working on, she continued to be helpful and friendly. I would definitely recommend her to others looking to buy, sell or rent, and I would go to her again in the future for my own real estate needs.

I have had the honor of knowing Shonda for many many years now, both personally and professionally.

As a mortgage broker, I have access to many realtors….so I know a good realtor when I meet one. I own a small rental property in Asbury Park and when all others either dropped the ball, or just simply were not interested, there was Shonda. When thieves broke into my house and stole all of the copper pipes, letting water flood the entire house, there was Shonda……..with her Uncle the Plumber……..when a tenant left unexpectedly, there was Shonda with a new tenant (lease in hand…signed). I cannot count on one hand the amount of times she has been there for me…..emergencies big and small. Shonda is connected, knowledgeable and most of all, she gets the job done. When it comes time to sell the house, I know who I’m calling!

Greg Socha

Rich Gribble was great.

He did a great job finding me exactly what I wanted and went above and beyond what I expected of him. He kept me informed during the closing process and walked me through everything. I would highly recommend him.

Anthony helped us purchase an investment property in Long Branch NJ.

It was a short sale, and there are nuiances involved with short sales that Anthony was extremely knowledgeable about. Anthony made the process, that usually can be quite difficult, run smoothly! We, during the process, also looked at Asbury Park properties. Anthony gave us honest feedback about the neighborhoods, knowing that we did not have as much first hand experience with Asbury. As we where looking for investment properties, he was also able to give us valuable rental information, which helped us make our final decision. I would reccommend Anthony to all Monmouth County buyers.

BL Architects

As first-time homebuyers, we had little knowledge and much anxiety about what the process would entail.

Anthony made us feel comfortable by educating us and walking us through the whole thing. He was extremely professional, and we felt incredibly lucky to have a real estate agent who far exceeded our expectations. We will absolutely be using Anthony for any and all real estate ventures in the future.

Allison Streck

It will be almost two years that I am a homeowner… thanks to you.

I love my small home and count my blessings every day. I am grateful to you for your hard work and support so that I may have a dream come true.

Rosalina Aponte

Brian helped me and my wife buy our first home.

He was courteous, professional, and efficient. Buying a home is not a simple process, and Brian was there every step of the way. We would recommend Brian to anyone in the area in the market to buy a home!

Mike

Best Asbury Park realty!

William Petrie

Shonda, you made shopping for my first home an excellent and exciting experience… I had no idea what I was looking for and you made it your business to show me a large variety of homes — from condos in Jersey City to single family homes in Toms River.

Because of your help WE found the perfect home and I am absolutely 1000% sure it is the right one.

Robert Layton

Carol and Mickey are the ‘A-Team’!

! In a bad housing market, they worked with us endlessly to get our condo sold. They spent endless hours with us and were always available whenever it needed to be seen. They worked well with the town and had everything covered for us. When work sent us to Germany before the sale, they completed everything for us, it was very comforting for us to know they were there in our corner. They are a tremendous asset to the community, with long standing recognition and great reputations. They are truly a ‘shore thing’, you can’t go wrong with this team, we love them!

Maria & Doreen

Anthony went above and beyond!

He put so much effort into finding the perfect home for us and helping us with our closing. I really cannot say enough good things about him, we are so lucky to have worked with him!

Rich was just a pleasure to work with.

He answered my phone calls all the time, he showed us houses whenever we wanted to see them, especially the one we purchased. Rich was very personable and easy to work with. Would highly recommend Rich as your Realtor!!

epagan

Rich is a wonderful Real Estate agent, I would recommend him to any of my friends and family.

He was extremely patient with my husband and I, as we were looking for a house that had to have certain features. Today, I’m proud to say that Rich has found us the perfect home with all of the features that we wanted in a home. Thank you so much Rich.

When one door opens another one closes.

As first time homebuyers, we were filled with hopes, dreams and anticipation. Both my husband and I are cosmopolitan and very well traveled. So moving to suburbia had to be the right fit in many ways. Right fit starts with the right real estate agent. Finding the right real estate agent is kind of like a marriage. We dated a few, but there was no chemistry. Until one day we met Shonda. Upon meeting Shonda immediately there was chemistry. We felt she had our best interest at heart. It was love at first sight! We loved the vibe of Asbury Park. We were determined to buy a house after many months and multiple contracts. Shonda worked relentlessly to determine our wants and needs. She is always positive, accommodating, and generous with both her time and knowledge. I guess you could say we were not easy, but rather, difficult and demanding. Already, this was a marriage made in heaven! You see, I always get what I want, and I got the house of my dreams. Today, 10 years later, my life has changed tremendously, Shonda is still in my life, and for that I am grateful. One door to my life has closed, my Teddy died the day I moved in, but, there are so many wonderful doors that have opened. Today, and everyday, when I run down my staircase in the morning, I have this overwhelming happiness… that this house has given me, and continues to give me on a daily basis. And I know, deep in my heart, if it wasn’t for Shonda, and her undeniable dedication, I would still be looking for the dream instead of living it…

Jamie Goldhagen

I recently moved to Asbury Park for a new job.

The living transition to find a new apartment was made seamless thanks to Brian. His responsiveness with any questions I had and his ability to make himself available made my move as pleasant as one could. I’d highly recommend Brian’s expertise!

Dante

Anthony listened carefully to what we liked and didn't like, and brought us to a house in a section of town we didn't know existed.

Our house is better than we had imagined when we set out on our search. He is very knowledgable about the area in general as well as specific properties. We couldn't be happier with our home, the neighborhood, and everything Asbury Park has to offer.

smerch

Carol & Mickey took the time to get to know us and truly understand what we were looking for in a new house.

Always there for us with options, they were able to uncover ‘our diamond in the rough’ and stayed with us to help navigate the, at times confusing process. We love our new home and couldn’t have done it without them.

Dion & Sal

I used Rich when I was looking for a place between December 2009 and April 2010.

A friend of mine referred him. After our intitial discussion, he sent me a list of about 30 places that fit my criteria and were for sale. I looked at the details for each one and chose about 10 that I liked. The next day Rich drove my wife and I all over Monmouth county looking at all these places. He was very honest. If he noticed something that he thought we wouldn’t like, he would say so. He didn’t try to push anything on us. Throughout the next couple of months, Rich sent me daily emails with more houses coming onto the market that fit our preferences. He was very available to meet with us and go visit these places. When we finally found a place, Rich continued to be of great assistance. He helped us through the attorney review process and was present for all four hours of our inspection. After the appraisal, we ran into some problems renegotiating with the seller. Rich kept in constant contact with us, our attorney, and our seller’s agent and was instrumental in finally getting us to a final contract. He continued to help us all the way until closing, and even gave us a Lowe’s gift card to congratulate us after we closed. This is our first home so I have no realtor to compare Rich to, but I have to say that I felt Rich went above and beyond to help us out. When it comes time for us to move again, there is no doubt in my mind who we will use.

Brian

I don't know how I could have gone through sell without the help of Dennis.

He was always available to answer my questions, walk me through all the computer texts and emails which helped me lower my stress levels. I will recommend him to anyone who is planning to move. He is a pleasure to work with!

Mary

Carol & Mickey are the perfect realtors for anyone looking to make a first time purchase (or even 2nd or 3rd) in Asbury Park.

They are long time residents of the area and know the history of the buildings and neighborhoods well. They provide excellent advice so that you can make educated decisions about which area and unit or house would be right for your needs and desires. The buying process can be very overwhelming but Carol & Mickey helped us navigate through or around every road block or hurdle in the process, successfully advocating for us with attorneys, mortgage brokers, bankers and other real estate brokers. They are honest and straight forward and even without asking provided us with break downs of all the costs involved in our purchase with comparisons of the different options we were considering. They not only became trusted brokers for us but also good friends. With their invaluable help, we found our perfect home by the shore.

Brent & Joe

I just wanted to thank you for all your patience & help during this first home buying process.

I can not thank you enough for all the times you let me vent, see a house that was way out of my price range, or make me laugh when was feeling hopeless. Thanks again & please stay in touch!

Lori

Rich Gribble was an exceptionally friendly and personable realtor; working with him does not feel much like work at all.

He coordinated extremely well with my mortgage company, the title company, the homeowner’s insurance company, and my attorney. Rich always arrived on time, and was always sharply dressed when he arrived for our meetings. He is extremely patient, especially with first time home buyers, and he returns phone calls within 10 minutes. The customer’s happiness is extremely important to Rich. I look forward to working with him the next time I purchase a home, to referring him to any of my friends who might be seeking to purchase a home in my area.

Brian D.

Went through Brian to rent an apartment.

He’s a great dude. His instructions were always clear, the paperwork moved fast, and he was patient and flexible to accommodate my needs and schedule. Thanks again!!! Would recommend to anybody.

Alex

Helen still contact s me on any concerns I have after purchase.

She is with the client from.start to.finish! Client first...

Johnson William

Anthony was great to work with I would definitely recommend him.

It was a very positive and smooth experience

brauntwin

Anthony Newarski helped us purchase our condo in Asbury Park in 2008.

The experience was nothing but joyful working with him. He is very helpful and knowledgeable about Asbury and answered all our questions and concerns asap. He was a pleasure to work with and we would recommand him to anyone and as a matter of fact we did to 3 other couples. Thanks again Anthony and good luck to you in the future.

Maryann and Neil Wood

Will was great to work with.

He was well informed and never pressured us. He was always available when we wanted to view a property. I would recommend Will to anyone looking to buy a new home or sell their current home.

Shonda Neal has my been my professional real estate guide to life on the Jersey Shore (and I don’t mean the television program) for the past 7 years.

I came to understand the neighborhoods of this 1 mile ocean stretch as a result of her willingness to put in the long hours of showing me around. And really her thoroughness resulted in my decision to make the shore my home. She is smart, knowledgeable about various ways to put a deal together, unbelievably patient and someone who is “there” for her clients as an all around resource.

Patricia A. Patton

Anthony was a pleasure to work with while I was selling my house.

He was very knowledgable of the market and always responded to my phone calls and emails right away. He worked hard to find the right buyers and was able to successfully negotiate a fair price considering the bad economy. Anthony keeps a positive attitude even when the job gets challenging and tough. He is very friendly and professional, and I'd recommend him to anyone who seeks his services.

R Kavarsky

anthony did a great job in managing our limited time by focusing on showing us houses that were of interest to us and in our price range.

Once we found our dream house, anthony was instrumental in guiding us through making a bid and winning our house in competition. His familiarity with the area was a great help in making the closing process with all the inspections and approvals very easy.

R Woertz

In May 2016 I listed my investment rental property with Brian.

Within the first week I received an offer on my property which was accepted. From the buyers inspection to the closing table Brian was available and throughout the entire process Brian was extremely helpful with attempting to relocating my tenants who were renting the property. Any seller could attest there are many obstacles and issues that arise during the selling process. I can say the few issues that arose Brian made himself available to help me on short notice in addition to meeting with Township officials for my certificate of occupancy inspection. I would have to say if I was starting the process over Brian would be the first call I’d make. I’d say Brian was really great and I’d highly recommend him to anybody buying or selling a property.

Jeffrey

Just wanted to let you know what a wonderful experience I had having Shonda Neal as my realtor.

Not only was she professional, she went above and beyond what you would expect a realtor to do. I had a short-sale situation which required numerous phone calls to mortgage companies and attorneys. I cannot tell you how many calls she made on my behalf to get things squared away and ready for closing. I would highly recommend her as a realtor, and have.

Tara Okros

My husband and I worked with Rich to buy our first house.

Rich was very professional and wonderful to work with. He was very knowledgeable about different areas we were interested in. He answered all our questions (and we had a lot) He was very helpful during the closing process and getting all our documents in order. I only have positive things to say about Rich. I would highly recommend him to anybody that is looking to buy a house or sell a house!

J. Kelly

Mickey and Carol provide 5-Star Service *****.

They listened to what I wanted and showed me houses that matched my requirements. I am very happy with the house I bought! Throughout the buying process they were always professional, knowledgeable, reliable, and personable. It was obvious that they knew the Asbury Park and surrounding areas. I was moving in from another state and they went the extra miles of helping me get acclimated to the area even after I bought the house. I will always use them for my real estate needs and strongly recommend them to anyone who wants to be assured that he is getting the best value for his money.

Linda Greene

It took nearly two years, but Mickey stuck with us while we searched for a retirement property in Asbury Park.

We live in the San Francisco Bay Area, so Mickey had to put up with our on-again, off-again search whenever we had the opportunity to visit the east coast. She never gave up on us, braving record-breaking heat and cold to show us innumerable properties. When we finally found our dream home, Carol joined Mickey to guide us step by step through the complexity of a long-distance purchasing process. They continue to help us cope with the ongoing demands of ownership in Asbury Park. We needed attention above and beyond the typical client, and Mickey and Carol always came through.

Susan & Rich

I was moving to the area from out of state and didn't have much time for the search.

I was lucky to come upon Anthony's partner at an open house and I've been grateful ever since. He knows the area very well and was super helpful in guiding me. This was particularly important since I was also a first time home buyer. During the process of negotiating and closing, Anthony was always available, extremely knowledgeable and provided great expertise. Not only in Anthony a great realtor but he's so much fun to be around and is a great person as well. I would recommend him in a heartbeat!

kmmichaels

Mr.

Gribble was very knowledgeable and thorough. We were purchasing a home for my Parents who are older and have not purchased in many years. Mr. Gribble not only was patient but took the time to help them execute the process as well as thoroughly explain all aspects in order to insure the maximum amount of comfort. I would highly recommend Richard Gribble to anyone searching for a home in his area.

Chad

Our home buying experience was above and beyond anything that we could have hoped for.

Not only did Rich find us the exact home we were looking for in the neighborhood we wanted, he found it for a price well within our means. Rich made our home buying experience exciting, fun and easy; he was with us every step of the way. We used to call Rich our realtor but now we are happy to say that we call him our friend.

Joan

They are the Best!

They have the nicest properties for sale in Asbury Park! A true professional and helpful team!

Jim Butler

I have known Anthony personally and professionally for several years now.

Brian was great when getting my first apartment in Asbury Park.

I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for the home of their dreams!

Victoria

Brian got us into our desired area, in an apartment better than we imagined, all while staying under our budget.

Pleasure to work with!

Lary

On April 20, 2010, we bought our first home- a very daunting experience for many, but for us it was easy….

.we had Carol and Mickey as our realtors! Professional, experienced, and always available, they were able to navigate us through the complicated process of buying a new home effortlessly. Most important, they listened- they got to know what we really desired, and in fact, picked what ended up being our dream home!!!
