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.

Carol DeFelice
DeFelice Realty Group, LLC
About Carol

I love real estate but more importantly I love helping people with their goals and dreams. Selling your house can be stressful, after nearly 2 decades of helping sellers I realize this isn't just a transaction this maybe the biggest decision they make in years. Some of your questions are, should I make improvements, which improvements will get me the biggest return, do I depersonalize, what time of year is the best and more? I'm here to help. I schedule a consultation with you, we can do it in person or with a video platform. One of my sellers I worked with since 2009 and she decided to sell in 2019, the sale went so smoothly and she hadn't wasted any money on unnecessary improvements over the years. For nearly 2 decades I worked at 2 of the largest brokerages in the area now I'm so committed to you that I opened my own brokerage with just you in mind. I have helped 1000's of people make a move some of them 3 or more times over the last 18 years. I know what it takes to take the stress away from you. I have lived in the Silverton section of Toms River since the 1980's and worked in the sister town of Brick for nearly a decade. I cover all of Ocean and Monmouth Counties. I have grown sons, one is in the business with me and 2 dogs....I love making sure dogs have the right place to live too!

Nancy Cagno
Flanagan Realty
About Nancy

I am a New Jersey native and have lived in the Toms River area for over 25 years. I have been a Realtor-Associate with Coldwell Banker Flanagan since 2005 after many years in the pharmaceutical field. I got into real estate just as the market started to "crash" but I have been very fortunate to have been able to make a career in an industry filled with ups and downs. Ocean County is a wonderful area with so much to offer - great single family homes, adult community complexes, and plenty of beach and resort properties. Our immediate location (Toms River waterfronts and the barrier island) is still in recovery from Hurricane Sandy but things look better every day and its still a great place to live. My family makes fun of me for saying it all the time, but I really love where I live. I'm probably a little biased but I think any place where you can get to the ocean for a beach day, head to Manhattan or Philly for some culture or to Atlantic City for some nightlife all within an hour is pretty great.

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Forked River?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload. Selling a home takes an enormous amount of work, so you need an agent who’s got a plan for prep, pricing, and marketing and who is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the job done.

Read more
When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Forked River?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date. When you start the search for an agent several months before hitting the market, there’s plenty of time to find the best agent, make key renovations, and market your home effectively, all of which are essential steps in selling your home for a great price. You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell in Forked River to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell in Forked River is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
