Christian Schlueter
RE/MAX at Barnegat Bay -4 Offices- Toms River, Forked River, Manahawkin, Long Beach Island
About Christian

I have been a licensed Realtor® since 1985. My wife Sharon and I began at the same time. We have added to our Team over the years. In 2001, Sharon and I decided that we needed more control over our real estate business, so we joined REMAX, one of the Premier Real Estate Companies in the world. This change gave us the opportunity to be completely in charge of every aspect of our business, from Marketing to creating our Team and formalizing our business by referral model. Our award winning Team consists of myself, my wife Sharon, my daughter Jennifer Francis (since 1993) and David Schlueter (Since 2015). We provide exemplary service from the time that we meet out clients, to long after the transaction has concluded. Many of our client relationships have lasted more than 30 years and we have had the honor to sell to multiple generations of the same family! The Real Estate Industry continues to evolve and change at lightning speed. Many of the changes can be attributed to technology, however, changing laws and regulations have made the real estate industry much more of a challenge for Realtors®. In order to remain the best in our business, and best serve our clients, we continuously attend webinars, seminars, lectures and additional training that keeps us 'Above the Crowd'. As the technology gives more and more information to the consumer, there needs to be a local expert to explain what it all means to them. Real Estate is a contact sport and we remain involved from beginning to well after the close of title to make sure that our client's needs are met. Please feel free to contact myself or any member of my team for any of your Real Estate Services. In addition to the areas listed below, we cover all of Ocean County and Southern Monmouth County.
