I was pleased with the house and the service I received from Pat and Berkshire Hathaway.
There is not a better real estate agent on LBI than Alicia! She was there for my family and me from the very first moment I phoned her in a panic because we needed a last minute rental. She knew the inventory that was available, including if the bathrooms would pass my very high standards! She is not only knowledgeable, but fun, funny and the kind of person you want to have a drink with when all the craziness is over. We cannot thank her enough for the latest transaction, which was our vacation home purchase on LBI. She continues to make life on LBI for our family what we all want when we drive across the bridge, smooth and easy! Thank you!!
Renting a beach house on-line is not alway easy. The photos and information given can be deceiving. The Berkshire Hathaway website gave a very realistic and thorough view of the properties. And Donna Diorio was a great guide in choosing the property that was best suited for our family. We knew exactly what to expect and had a terrific stay at LBI.
This has been our sixth year using Zack Shore Realtors and Agent Beverly Karch for our LBI rental. We have built a relationship with Beverly who has made the process very easy and is always available to help out with any concerns or questions we may have.
I just wanted to say we were very happy with this year's house! It turned out to be a great week weather wise. The location of the house was great and the extra parking was a big plus now that all of my kids drive!
Thank you, Bev, for another great week at the shore. I very much appreciate all of your guidance each summer and you never steer me wrong!
Laura - she is the best! 24/7, 7 days a week, she is always there. Thanks!
We have rented through your agency since 2012 & we are well pleased with the service we have encountered and more recently we have been so happy with the agent we discovered by just calling your office and describing what we wanted. She knew your inventory. And set us up with appointments, showed us a few that were available in our time frame and price range. She took her time she had the answers to our questions and if she didn't she said she would get them. A genuine gifted agent and a pleasure to work with. My husband is an agent in Sussex county and he acknowledged her kindness and comprehension of our needs
I’ll sum up my recent rental experience in one word, “PHENOMENAL”! From the moment I saw the Bay View Terr house, I was in love. True to form, the house did not disappoint! The views were priceless from nearly every room in the home. Exceptional privacy turned this vacation oasis into a private retreat! Plenty to eat, see, do within walking distance. I adore this home and couldn’t have done it without Alicia! She is the dream agent!! Cool, calm, and kind! We love her! Thank you Alicia and the Hill’s for giving us the opportunity to experience LBI from the beauty of Bay Terrace! See you in 2021 (or maybe before)!! ?
We recently sold our family beach house at LBI and not only did Alicia Marzarella manage the sale, she also helped to find rentals for the summer rentals we had already booked, but which we could no longer accommodate. Alicia went above and beyond in finding comparable homes to rent for our summer bookings, and the places she found were perfect for the renters. Alicia has also been working with my mother for years, helping her to rent out the house for the summers. My mother trusted her more than any other realtors she had found and sought her out for counsel again and again over the years. This was why we turned to Alicia when we had to sell the house. We knew she would help make it a success and she did!! So whether you are looking for a vacation rental or looking to rent your home to others, Alicia is an extremely knowledgeable agent who will get the job done for you. She is also just a great person to talk to, she will listen to your needs and do her utmost to accommodate them. I recommend her unreservedly and very enthusiastically!
Started using Berkshire Hathaway with Carol Stephens when she closed her agency on the boulevard this past year she referred me on to Pat Schultis as she was no longer doing rentals Pat work with me to find a very comfortable home and is there any questions I had and helps me with any of my needs I was very happy with my service
We have been working with Donna for years. She is very cordial and accommodating. She tackles any problems we have and always manages to please. Looking forward to many more years.
LBI will be our new vacation spot... we loved it. Very family friendly. Just enough things to do around town and the beaches are beautiful.
We have been staying at The Fishery for several years now. We love the beach access, as well as the pool. All units that we have stayed in have been lovely. This year however, the unit was our favorite. It was well stocked, clean, nicely updated and fit our family comfortably. Pat , our agent is always helpful and pleasant. We look forward to returning next year.
I have had the pleasure of dealing with Alicia Marzarella for many years now. She has been my "go to" realtor for my home rentals in LBI. She is always responsive and has never failed to deliver for me. She even recommended a local florist so I could buy flowers for my wife's birthday! She is a pleasure and the only realtor you should deal with when looking to rent/buy in LBI.
|Donna Diorio is wonderful to work with! A friend recommended her three years ago and we have used her ever since. She is very pleasant and takes the time to find the perfect place to rent! Can’t wait to have her book out rental for next summer!|
I have been working with Donna Diorio to find the right rental property for many years. She is always very helpful and attentive. We had to call for her a small issue in one of the homes we rented and she responded immediately She is a pleasure!
Patricia Shultis was helping me and my family with our LBI rental needs over several years now. Pat is very professional and courteous, and every time she was able to find great rental for us. Thanks a lot, Pat!
While my husband and I have been coming to LBI for almost 40 years, this was our first rental working with Donna Diorio. I was delighted with our experience. From the first phone call to inquire about a specific property through the return of the property key, Donna was consistently professional, competent and courteous. Throughout the process, Donna kept me informed of our contract status, our payments and returned our deposit promptly. I would recommend her services to others and will definitely contact Donna for our future LBI rental needs.
Pat did an amazing job finding us our perfect LBI home! The views were unbelievable from virtually every room in the home!! The house was very clean and extremely well cared for. You immediately feel the love. Our whole family fell in Love with the house and cant wait to rent it again next year!!
Pat Shultis was outstanding in helping find a vacation site under some difficult requirements. She answered many questions promptly and without making me feel that I was a nuisance(which I probably was). She was available it seemed 24/7 and I can most definitely recommend her.
Pat has been my LBI realtor for almost 20 years . She has always been very helpful to me and my family . Check in is very easy and fast . The rental was very clean and comfortable. She sent me a text message to warm me about flooding after a storm . I give Pat and her agency a 10 !
We have been working with Pat Shultis for several years. She has always been extremely helpful. When we had to change our vacation week and our usual rental was not available, she helped us find another similar property. Just before she processed our deposit check for the alternate property, our usual rental became available for the new week and she notified us immediately. While the other rental would have been OK, we were very happy that Pat took the time to draw up a new lease and switch us to our usual rental.
We love renting in LBI for a week in the summer and when I couldn't find anything to rent, my friend gave me Donna Diorio's information! I reached out to Donna and within hours had a variety of places for the week we needed and that were pet friendly! She also met us on Saturday in February to let us look at the houses to find the one that best suited our family! I feel Donna went above and beyond to help us! She is pleasant and always willing to help! I will definitely be using her as my go to for our LBI vacations! Thanks, Donna!!
|My family and I have been renting summer homes on LBI for over 25 Years. Our children and grandchildren have grown up enjoying their summer vacations on LBI.
Alicia Marzarella has been our rental agent all these years and has never failed in finding us a beautiful home and location especially as our family grew. Our grandchildren are now in college and high school and they still look forward to coming down here every July. They start counting the days right after Christmas until we arrive here in July. We look to many more years of vacation time down here. We do not treat Alicia and Allison as people we do business with but
rather we regard them as personnel friends and we enjoy coming down to LBI every summer to see them.
Evelyn and Tom OConnor and family
A warm welcome at the Berkshire centre in Manahawkin. The house was just as listed. Laura Serpentelli was quick to answer any of our questions and concerns. Thanks for everything!
This was the 5th year we rented the Troast House in Harvey Cedars . This is a great house with a fabulous location . My children and grandchildren have greatly enjoyed the last five years. The house has everything in it and totally meets our needs. Only "needs improvement" comment is the AC to the bedroom on the top floor needs to cool off the room a little better. On very hot nights it was stuffy sleeping. Overall, we had a wonderful vacation, great weather and stayed in a fabulous house. This is why we're coming back next year.
Pat did a great job by going above and beyond to make our vacation great! I will contact Pat next time we rent in LBI!
I have worked with Zack Shore and specifically Donna Diorio for more than ten years. She is the best. She is a great communicator and always willing to go that extra mile to make sure we are satisfied. If you need a great realtor on LBI give her a call!
We have been using Pat Shultis, for the last 12 or so years for out rentals on LBI. She has been great every year, check-in and check-out has been quick and easy. She will check in every now and then if there is a storm, and to make sure everything is good. If there has been a problem, she had it fixed in less than an hour. Thank you Pat for all these great years on LBI.....
Had a great vacation at LBI. My realtor, Laura Serpentelli, was professional, courteous and found just the right house for my mother-in-law who is unable to move around freely without her walker. The house was perfect! We had a fabulous time and would recommend Zack Shore Realtors to all our family and friends.
|Thank you Patricia for suggesting the home we stayed in. It was perfect! It was clean and very spacious. We enjoyed ourselves immensely. We hope to return for our next vacation. Thank you again.|
Patricia Shultis was very helpful and responsive throught the whole rental process. I highly recommend her for helping with renting a house for a vacation.
Alicia went above and beyond to help our family settle into our long term rental in Harvey Cedars. She went out of her way to personally track down items that we needed for a comfortable stay and was available by phone and email at any time of day or night. She sincerely cared about the quality of our experience and we will most definitely be reaching out to her for our next rental!
Loved our vacation in Ship Bottom. It was our first time renting directly on the beach and it added so much to our stay. The views were fantastic. Pat Schultz, our realtor, always makes check in fast and easy. She checked on us during our stay due to a overnight storm. We love LBI and can't wait to return in 2018!
Another perfect week's vacation on LBI, thanks to Donna Diorio and the staff at Zack Shore Realtors. Every interaction via phone and in person is always a positive experience. Donna never hesitates to share her knowledge and expertise and is always quick to respond any time I've needed her. This year was particularly challenging with the restrictions due to COVID-19. The extra communication through emails from Donna and Zack Shore outlining the guidelines for LBI were very helpful. We knew what to expect before we arrived and made the situation so much less stressful. Thank you Donna. See you again next year!!
We keep coming back, year after year, to LBI with our extended family. Peaceful, restful, and fun. Many happy memories!
Beverly Karch was very responsive to all of our questions and concerns!! I will definitely use Zack Shore Realtors again.
Last summer, I decided to fly up to Jersey for a week with a very dear friend. I called upon Laura Serpentelli to locate me a small house/cottage or Clean apartment. At the height of the season she came up with two (2) one bedrooms homes. One of the summer listings had several photos that depicted exactly what I wanted. I rented sight unseen and was extremely pleased when I arrived at my destination in Ship Bottom, ocean block (home away from home). It was perfect in every possible way. Thanks to all of you at BHHS, ZACK SHORE great team!
Laura is the best.
Anything you need and anything you didn’t know you needed...she is there 24/7
|I've been a renter with Donna for quite a few summer seasons now and all my vacations on LBI have been Great. When I was looking for a house to rent for my summer vacation years back, Donna took me out to see houses I would like. She was patient until she turned me on to a place that I loved ! I keep going back with Pat and especially Donna. Always no glitches, Thanks Again Donna. Looking forward to another Great year In LBI 2020|
Donna did a great job under a very tight timeframe. She was very patience with my incessant questions as well! We'd use her as our realtor again if we visit the area.
Donna pulled a rabbit out of a hat in locating an amazing property in Beach Haven for my family. On the shortest of notices. Can't say enough about her professionalism and follow-through. She's now our go-to person for LBI.
Many thanks, Ken and family
Dear Dawn - Heartfelt thanks for all you did for me in handling the unfortunate “mess” after R’s passing. Your calls on my behalf…and your speedy re-rental of my property, and all the running you did to make that happen was so far beyond the norm! I thank you for all you do for me. With kindest regards,” D.M.
Hi Pat. As expected we had a great vacation. The house is always in beautiful condition and I appreciate the opportunity to relax and enjoy LBI with my kids and grandchildren. And thank you to you for expediting our arrival. Hope you have a great rest of the summer!!
Laura Serpentelli at Berkshire was great to work with. She was extremely responsive and diligent with following up with us when we rented in Beach Haven West this summer. Thanks very much for helping us make a great vacation! We definitely recommend using Laura and the Berkshire office. Thanks again for everything!
Donna Diorio is the best. Easy to work with and extremely accommodating. I am always a lady minute renter and Donna always comes through with exactly what I'm looking for. Nothing is ever a problem with Donna!
Our Realtor, Laura Serpentelli, was such a pleasure to work with and quickly responded to any questions or needs we had. When one of our rentals did not work out through no fault of Zack Shore's, the company immediately remedied the situation and picked up the difference for an upgraded rental so we could secure one in time for the season. Highly recommend!
Dawn was great to work with. She always made herself available to us and really made the purchase of our new home/rental of our old home as easy as possible. We would definitely recommend and/or use her again
Thank you to Donna DiOrio for making the rental process so easy when I come to LBI. She is quick to respond to my emails and phone calls and always knows the answers to my many questions! I look forward to working with her again next year. She's a great asset to Zach Shore!!
We have worked with Pat Shultis for three years. I have never dealt with a more responsive realtor. Whenever I emailed there was an immediate response back. She goes above and beyond to assist and help her clients.
Our yearly family vacation to the Fishery in Shipbottom on LBI is a terrific experience for our whole clan. The condo, the beach, the people and of course Pat Shultis are A #1. The grandchildren look forward all year to "going down the shore" with Grandma and Grandpa and you don't disappoint. This year Adam, our 6 year old, told his mom "Mommy, I've been waiting to get here for 365 days". Our hearts are smiling! Thanks for caring for us.
We had a wonderful week in Peahala Park - The house was very comfortable and offered many amenities. The A/C vents were very dusty but that's about it. The backyard was very nice - we spent a lot of time out there - we had a little one with us so the fact that it was fenced in was just perfect for us. The beds were very comfortable. We appreciated the beach badges as well. The weather could have been better but there's nothing any of us can do about that! lol Thanks for everything.
Just a short note to say how much my family enjoyed our stay at 142 Maryland Ave. and what a fine representative you have in Amanda Mathes.
Amanda has a very warm disposition and is attentive to every need of her customer. I appreciate her hard work.
Thanks so much FXD
