We have been working with Zack Shore for decades. Every summer they find us the properties we need! This year was no exception.
This year, we ran into a scheduling snafu that could have ruined the vacation. Our local agent Alicia Marzarella saved our bacon by finding an available house for one night. Alicia was able to pull this off because she is "customer first" and knows everybody. Thank you, Alicia. See you next year!
For several years now, Cheryl Benedict has been handling our family’s rentals in Brant Beach., and I couldn’t ask for someone more professional and friendly. You can count on Cheryl of Zack Shore Realtors.
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.
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!
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 !
|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!|
We've been working with Zack Shore for years, and they never let us down. This year, Alicia Marzarella truly went above and beyond for us, quite literally saving our treasured family beach week. Thank you, Alicia!
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!!
Cheryl was incredible to work with. She went above and beyond. Not even a question I will be using her again and recommending her. She was extremely responsive and helpful. A+++
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 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.
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
Alicia Marzarella is easily the best agent we've used on LBI. We own two houses, one in Harvey Cedars, which we rent seasonally, and one in Barnegat Light, which we no longer rent but did some years ago. Alicia is amazingly effective. She gets it done over and over again. She's sociable, down to earth, connects easily with people. She's prompt, responsive, totally knows the area. You can't go wrong with Alicia.
Laura is great to work with. She's found great rentals for our family and when we encountered a minor hiccup this year, she was able to immediately rectify it. We highly recommend her.
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)!! ?
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!!
We’ve been using your service and Alicia for over 10 yrs and could not be happier! Love our rental and every time I leave I’m thinking about the next time!!! Thank you!?
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.
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.
Amanda was great! I reached out to her very late and she understood what I was looking for when we spoke. She sent out options that day and was around for the questions I had. It was great to work with her. She responded to every call and text. I'm looking forward to seeing if I can buy something next year, or rent for another week next year.
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.
My husband and I have been vacationing in Barnegat Light every September for many years. Pat Shultis helped us find the right rental property which has been perfect for us. She has always been great to deal with- very responsive over the years - doing everything she can to assist. And she is a person, not a website- which we appreciate. ;-)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.
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
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!
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.
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 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!
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!
Beverly Karch, our realtor, has always treated us professionally and alerted us whenever necessary to items we may have not attended to or just wishing us well as we enjoyed our vacation home! I’ve known Beverly since renting our first home in 2015 and I’ve recommended her to several friends and family. I will continue to do so! Thank you Beverly!
Amanda was nothing short of terrific in all respects with respect to our renting a house in Beach Haven. From the time we first signed the rental papers until the time we left, she was always there to assist on moment's notice, and her assistance/help was just unbelievable. It made our stay that much more enjoyable and problem free.
We keep coming back, year after year, to LBI with our extended family. Peaceful, restful, and fun. Many happy memories!
We really appreciate how Amanda answered all our questions and helped us find the perfect rental. It is a beautiful home and we were able to have a great family vacation week on LBI. Thank you.
Amanda was great to work with, she was always available (even times when she was probably with her family) and on top of everything. I appreciate everything she did for us! Loved working with her!!
Alicia Marzarella has been our agent for the past three years. She has been enormously helpful and dedicated to finding homes for vacation rentals that best suit our family needs. She shows expertise, care and concern for her clients. She is a problem solver as well. She will always be my go to realtor on Long Beach Island. I highly recommend her for anyone interested in working with a very fine realtor
I have another for Cheryl when you have a moment to get them up. I know how busy you are, just do it when you have a free moment. she’s just really excited because these are her first ones.
Cheryl was incredible to work with. She went above and beyond. Not even a question I will be using her again and recommending her. She was extremely responsive and helpful. A+++ - Danielle V.
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!
Zack Shore Realtors are the best on Long Beach Island. We have been using them for years for summer rentals, and they never disappoint. I highly recommend!
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.
Zack Shore has always been a consistent, reliable source of rentals for our ever expanding family.
This year, they went above and beyond, not only finding us the perfect place(s) for our family week on LBI, but also saving us from a self inflicted (my fault!) scheduling mixup that could have left us with nowhere to stay for the first night of our vacation. Alicia Marzarella stepped up at the eleventh hour and found us a place. This is why we work with the professional humans at Zack Shore and not with the online sites. Many thanks Alicia!
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!
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!!
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.
What a pleasure working with Berkshire-Hathaway on our rental and Cheryl in particular! The sign in and get keys day went so smoothly and was well organized. The home we rented for 2 weeks was wonderfully furnished with everything we needed, clean, and in a good location. We even showed the neighbors through the house (they were very displeased with their rental through an internet agency).
Using the Gator transportation service to the beach was great, and so easy.
Look forward to next year's vacation already!
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.
I have now used Alicia Marzarella for two consecutive years. Alicia is everything you would want in a realtor!
Alicia is kind, proactive, detail oriented, and thorough in helping me pick the perfect rental. Thank you Alicia for all that you do!
I would wholeheartedly recommend Cheryl to anyone wishing to rent or buy on LBI. Cheryl searched until she found the perfect vacation spot for our diverse family! We are very happy!
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.
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!!
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!
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.
I love working with Amanda Mathes! She found me a great rental on East Sailboat Lane and was able to promptly answer all my questions regarding the unit. She is warm and personable and has been very responsive to my needs. I look forward to working with her in the future!
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.....
We love this house and we think Alicia M is a GREAT agent !!!!
We have our homes exclusively listed with Amanda Mathes for rent on Long Beach Island. Amanda is thorough, knowledgeable and consistent in overseeing our property. She’s reliable, motivated and is a true professional
As an licensed agent myself, I highly recommend Amanda and wouldn’t use anyone else.
Thanks to Alicia we were able to book a "last minute" home for our 2022 LBI vacation. The house was great it fit our needs. The process of booking was easy from the first contact to checking out. We have been coming to LBI for over 40 years and continue to enjoy the treasures it has to offer.
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.
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!
Beverly Karch was very responsive to all of our questions and concerns!! I will definitely use Zack Shore Realtors again.
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!
We have been renting from ZackShore Realty for a number of years.
Pat has been our agent and has always provided us with prompt and thorough attention. She is extremely knowledgeable and accessible!
We have been coming to LBI for over 50 years and ZackShore Realty makes our plans a breeze!
We were so lucky to meet Alicia Marzarella during our search for a summer rental in 2018, and we continue to rely upon her assistance.
Alicia's work ethic, attention to detail and commitment to client satisfaction are exemplary. Her care, concern and diligence go beyond finding the right home for us. She works hard to ensure that our rental homes are perfect, and our time away is a true vacation. We truly value our relationship with Alicia and unequivocally recommend her.
We would like to tell you how very happy we were with Alicia Marzarella. We contacted her regarding a rental we were interested in. We knew it was very late to try and book 2 weeks for July or August. Yet from our very first phone call with her she could not have been more helpful. She went out of her way to find out exactly what we were looking for. It took her less then 2 days to find us a rental that we were extremely happy with. She made phone calls & did not stop looking until we got what we wanted. Alicia went above and beyond to make us happy. We will be using her from now on and will reccomend her to all our friends & family. Thanks Alicia
Beverly, you have been very helpful and I appreciate your quick responses to all my questions. I can see why you have a 5 star rating! Thank you for helping us find a great place!
Our normal rental house wasn’t available this year. So I found Cheryl, we were late looking but she found us the perfect house and now have a new annual rental that’s far superior to what we had been renting. We already booked next year!! The process couldn’t have been easier. Cheryl really listen to exactly what we were looking for and worked really hard to find us the perfect place it’s a no-brainer for us to continue working with her and Zack Shore Realty.
This was the first time we rented on Long Beach Island and we were extremely satisfied with Cheryl Benedict and the attention she gave to us during our weeks rental. The house she found for us was very nice and very close to the beach as we requested. Unfortunately there were some issues with house however Cheryl was prompt in her response and paid close attention to our needs. I would use her again
Once again we have enjoyed a wonderful week with our children and grandchildren. 1504 Bayview is an ideal home and location for our family. The two floor living is perfect for our son and his family who make the trek up north from Georgia - no mean feat with two sets of twins ages 11 and 5! Our thanks to our magnificent realtor, Alicia Mararella, who found the rental for us three years ago.. Hopefully in the future, we will ask her help in finding a permanent vacation home for oursevles but in the meantime, we hope to spend our summers at 1504 Bayview.
This is our first year renting from Samantha. We had a few issues while we were there for 2 weeks and Samantha handled swiftly and professionally. I will definitely rent from her again. The entire rental operation was Seamless.
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!
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
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!!
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.
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.
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.
Alicia has been our agent for over 25 years and as being an agent myself ;I can attest that she truly goes above and beyond for her clients. She is always available to answer questions and makes sure all is in order for our vacation. We are so very thankful for all she has done over the years!!
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
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
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!
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
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!!
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.
I was pleased with the house and the service I received from Pat and Berkshire Hathaway.
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.
I've been working with Alicia Marzarella for some time now. Alicia knows what kind of rental suits me best, and always finds me a great place.
This year Alicia hit it out of the ballpark once again! Alicia understands what great customer service means, and makes sure I have everything I need.
Thank you once again for a worry free vacation and being so attentive to every last detail.
Laura is the best.
Anything you need and anything you didn’t know you needed...she is there 24/7
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.
Great relaxed time. Everyone enjoyed the clean, spacious facility and above all the ocean view from the spacious deck.
Checking in and out was quick and easy. I appreciated getting a text from my Realtor the first night we were there checking to be sure everything was OK.
Beverly was fantastic and I would highly recommend her. We fell out of the rental rotation due to our kids schedules with sports and school. She stayed on top of cancelations and was able to get us a place at the last minute. The place was perfect. She was kind, patient, showed up at the place with treats for the kids and a jersey tomato for us! Great customer service. She is a class act and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or rent on LBI!
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.
Karen was a big help in assisting us locate the right rental home for our family vacation. We have been renting on LBI for 38 years, we had to switch to a new home this year and it worked out perfectly thanks to Karen Torisello.
Cheryl Benedict from Zack Shore has been exceptional in all she has done to help rent out our beach house. She is the one you want to work with if you are looking to rent out your house as an owner or if you are looking to book a great vacation as a tenant. She knows LBI very well and is a great resource. I highly recommend Cheryl. She really cares about her clients.
