Read what some of my clients have to say!

We met with Steve Moran of Mary Allen Realty. He and Mary Cleary were informative, pleasant professionals with a plan! Within a week we had 2 offers and a firm contract. Highly recommend this team!!”

Dear Steve:
After settling into to the LBI shore house of my dreams (at Barnegat Light), it’s a pleasure to write this letter to thank you for all your hard work and the first-rate service you provided.
It is no exaggeration that the purchasing process of a shore property can be an arduous endeavor both emotionally and fiscally. Your many years of experience clearly show that you know your product well. Other agents, I’m told, focus more on quick easy sales, but you did not.
I felt the transaction was handled in a very professional manner. Real estate information was clear and concise. My questions and concerns were addressed promptly and deadlines were met on time. I really appreciate the time and patience that you showed as well as the individualized attention.
Through it all, you were a Realtor who was clearly a partner and a friend. For all of these reasons, this is why I can unconditionally recommend you to my friends and acquaintances. It is without hesitation I would seek you out with any future real estate needs.
You are the best!
Sincerely,
Dr. Mark Magos, Flemington, NJ

We rented a house, in Ship Bottom, for a week in August ’14, thru Steve. I had found Mary Allen Realty via web searches and then connected to him when I called the office. After weighing in my budget, the fact that I was bringing along a toddler and elderly parents, Steve was extremely helpful and provided invaluable guidance related to townships, amenities, pro-cons etc. during our property selection. We ended up selecting a property near the bay side but still close to a ton of activities, including crabbing J, that my four-year-old daughter could enjoy!
We really cherished our week at LBI. The rental was immaculate, true to the pictures and the island, truly, one of the most picturesque locations on the Jersey shore! Thanks to Steve & the Mary Allen Realty team for making it memorable.
I highly recommend Steve and am looking forward to working with him again. Have a feeling that our next stay won’t be waiting an entire season!!!!

Some More Nice Folks I helped with my then partner, Theresa Jensen

I just want to leave a note of thanks to Steve and Theresa for all their help in finding our “Shore Suite”. When we first started looking the big thing in my mind was the price. I remember telling Steve that I did not want to be house poor, and his response was “but you also don’t want a poor house”! Good advice. Needless to say, they found the perfect fit for us; the house is everything we were looking for. We are looking forward to many years of happy memories in our new home…thanks again Steve and Theresa!

Theresa and Steve were excellent. I live 300 miles from the house I sold for my parents. Steve arranged to have his guy come in to make repairs, reasonably priced so I could close. He kept an eye on things too, assuring all was done properly. He facilitated obtaining the CO for me. I could not have sold this property without his help! They were both so helpful – checking on the property after a hurricane, closing it up, returning the cable boxes. They went above and beyond what is required.

Steve and Theresa were great! We can’t thank them enough for their patience and dedication in finding us our LBI get away. Our search started somewhat like groping. We knew how much money we had, but no idea how far it would go in obtaining our LBI dream home. Steve and Theresa both took us to look at home after home…single family homes, condos, ‘fixer uppers’, etc. The whole process took more than a year, but Steve and Theresa understood that those properties just weren’t right for us. Finally, we found it, a nice, roomy, condo 200 feet from the beach, well maintained on a large lot with lots of parking. From there they helped us with the price negotiation, the contract and purchase. We closed late in the season so we didn’t have much hope in renting some of our unused weeks, but they even helped us to get some weekly tenants for the remainder of our first rental season; which was a help in recovering some of those closing expenses!

Theresa was the best when it came to working around my hectic schedule. She was prompt, efficient and with her partner, Steve able to handle all the details of my purchase, while I was mostly traveling on business. Theresa quickly pinpointed properties of interest for me, and we were able to view them all in one day. From there we moved speedily through the contract, inspections, and closing of the purchase enabling me to enjoy my new LBI townhouse by the beginning of the summer. Karen B, Manhattan, NY

Once we zeroed in on Barnegat Light, Theresa and Steve worked diligently to find us something in this limited area that met the needs of our family. Then after finding us a home, they were there with advice, guidance, and support from the opening offer through the closing and now beyond. They were proactive and responsive. REAL PROS that I highly recommend. Luis Leon and Family

Steve & Theresa – We cannot thank you both enough for the awesome job you both did in helping us find the perfect shore house for us on LBI! From the day we first met, you never stopped working for us and always had our best interests in mind. Your combined knowledge, experience, and honesty carried us from finding the right listings that met our wants and needs, showing us homes along the way, as well as previewing some when we could not get down there, negotiating the contract, right through to move in day. It was a pleasure working with you and we hope to stay in touch for many years to come. You have our highest recommendation. Michelle & Carmine Pugliese


We were very fortunate to meet and work with Theresa and Steve at Mary Allen Realty. They were a very professional, personable, knowledgeable and fun team. From the first day we met them to the closing of our home they went above and beyond. Now they are also our friends. Gary and Joanne Katich

Theresa and Steve’s local expertise, professionalism and patience made me confident that I had chosen the right team to represent me. I was immediately provided online updates matched to my criteria, given their valuable input while previewing several homes and had my numerous questions answered throughout the actual transaction. I have and will continue to recommend them to anyone looking to buy on LBI. Paul M., Hoboken, NJ



We have worked with Steve for years as renters, buyers, and then landlords. Recently, he and his partner Theresa listed and sold our LBI home, while finding us the perfect Surf City home for our growing family. Their team effort worked to our advantage in keeping both transactions on track and culminating in another wonderful summer on the Island. Bob and Peg P., Cranford, NJ
