What Clients are Saying…

Kristina “Tina” Cofka, is an excellent real estate agent and helped me above and beyond what is expected from a real estate agent.  My dad passed away in June 2017 and we had to relocate my mother down to Florida. I was the one responsible to sell my parents home,  and what could have been a nightmare for me, selling a home from out of state was no problem at all. Tina took care of everything for me from getting someone in to check for termites to getting me a real estate lawyer.  She realized that I had to sell my mom’s house as soon as possible because my mom needed the money to survive on. It was less than 4 months and my house was sold and that was with having a buyer back out before the house got sold.” – Robyn De Young

Margaret “Peg” Bednarczyk was very helpful and was able to meet our needs. We are very lucky to have had her. Without her, we would have never found our home in time. She was able to educate us and let us make our own decisions/learn the process.” Emily, Point Pleasant Boro

“I would recommend Catherine Steen. She helped us purchased a home, walked us through the process and was there every step of the way. She is polite, hardworking and attentive. She was a pleasure to work with.”Pat and George M

John Hazelet recently represented my husband and I on the purchase of our home. He is an extremely reliable and knowledgeable Realtor who is committed to getting his clients into the home of their dreams! We had a relatively short window of time to close and had to get numerous time sensitive appointments scheduled. As my husband and I both work full time, John was instrumental in helping us get everything done. He goes above and beyond for his clients and we always felt that he had the best interests of our family in mind. If you are ready to buy or sell, we highly recommend that you call John.” Sue and Gary, Point Pleasant, NJ

“It was a pleasure to work with Michelle Ackermann and CARA Realtors on selling our family summer home in Seaside Park. Having moved to another state, I was anxious about finding the right realtor to assist with listing and selling our house from a distance.  Michelle allayed those fears by providing excellent service and a positive, upbeat approach and a can-do attitude. She is very personable and worked very hard to represent our interests in this important transaction. I highly recommend Michelle and her CARA team based on their ability to meet our unique needs and their excellent service and communications.” Jim Bellatty

Catherine Steen was an absolute pleasure to work with. She made my buying experience very easy. She went above and beyond to make sure all aspects of the sale went smoothly.” Jacob Norby

“Worked with Margaret and looked at many many homes. We were getting frustrated when finally Margaret took us to a Foreclosure home in Brick NJ that she found that met all our wishlist. Margaret made the whole process very easy, from the bidding to the closing. Dealing with a bank foreclosure is  not easy but she knew exactly how to navigate the system to expedite the whole process for us. She even came to our closing which was on New Years Eve! I would highly recommend using Margaret for any of your real estate needs, she was wonderful to work with!!” Helen and Mike, Brick, NJ

“As a first time home buyer and not at all familiar with much of the process, I was very comfortable with John Hazelet as my Agent. He guided me through the process every step of the way. John was also very informative when questions came up. He kept a very open line of communication with me, the buyer, and was always supportive of me when I was just about to go crazy. If anyone is looking for a Realtor, John Hazelet will be highly recommended by me.” Janet, Brick NJ

Catherine Steen is a very good realtor; she is top on our list. Catherine was always there for us. We will be sharing her name with all our friends.”Geri

“I had a great home buying experience with Kristina Cofka at Cara Realtors.  I have been through the process a few times, and often the hardest part is timely communication between all the parties.  Kristina was always available to help with the small details needed to push the deal through.” Tim N

“Having owned my current home for many, many years, I recently decided to relocate into a retirement community. I was very unfamiliar (and nervous) about the process of finding a new home, and the steps needed to complete the transition. John Hazelet was highly recommended to me, and working with him, was a great decision. He was very patient as we searched for the perfect home. Additionally, he was very professional, knowledgeable, organized and diligent in completing this process in a smooth and timely fashion. I love my new home and have already recommended John’s to several friends!”Anna, Brick

Margaret was well prepared and knowledgeable about the area it was wonderful to work with her. She guided us through every step with confidence. She really made us feel comfortable and we will definitely be contacting if we ever sell/buy new home.” Jane, Brick

Catherine Steen or Cathy is very professional in all her affairs, she is always there to help. She made a very difficult deal happen.” Jim

“I am writing this letter as a recommendation for Gina Corbisiero. We first met Gina who showed us a listing of hers that we did not ultimately buy. I had the attitude that I did not want to work with a buyer’s agent because I felt working only with the individual sellers agents would make the process more direct and with Zillow and all the information available online, I knew of all the listings locally that I would be interested in. Gina won us over for several reasons. One is that she was very knowledgeable about the local Brick market. She was never pushy and was ALWAYS available even on short notice to show us homes, and to advise us of new listings. We wound up buying a home that was in Bankruptcy from a couple undergoing a divorce. The process was ridiculous in that we had to deal with another broker and the Court Appointed Trustee who was unresponsive and at best hardly interested. On several occasions we were ready to back out of the deal because the trustee could not obtain a payoff amount and my mortgage commitment was about to expire and cost me a higher rate. Gina went above and beyond what she was required to do, communicating with all the attorney’s gaining repeated access to the house which was still occupied so I could complete a mold remediation that was required by the lender etc. Gina was on top of the situation at all times and worked tirelessly to make the deal happen. We give her the highest recommendation and thank her for her hard work.”


I just wanted to let you know how impressed I was with your sales associate, Michelle Flemming.  Michelle was incredibly professional, kind, caring and extremely helpful in the sale of my uncle’s home. Being the executor of his estate, there was a tremendous amount of work involved and selling his home was the biggest issue I was facing.  Michelle helped to make this sale and went above and beyond to make sure that this sale was taken care of from beginning to end. I would highly recommend Michelle to anyone looking to have a sales associate who makes you feel like you are the only listing she has!  Her attention to detail and her care for all involved was amazing. – Deborah G

Abbey Lanz was incredible with helping to find me a rental in such a short amount of time. She made the process seamless and the entire transaction was stress free from start to finish. I can not recommend her enough for any stage in relocating she definitely dedicates herself to her clients. Lauren Johnson

We bought our dream home at the Jersey Shore using CARA Realestate agent Nancy Hopp and couldn’t be more satisfied. Nancy was so easy going and made sure she answered all our questions. Once we found our home she walked us through all that was needed with our inspection, mortgage , insurance and she even meet our cleaning company before we moved in. Thank you CARA and Nancy V & I – Chicly Quagl

“My Partner and I were searching for a home for a while. We were discouraged and lost all hope. We had looked at over 75 homes. Between the pickiness, price, location and things we were certain we wanted it was becoming impossible to find a home. Nancy Hopp worked patiently with us making herself available 110%. From the beginning to the end, she made the process smooth. We finally found a home thanks to Nancy. During the process of buying a home we ran into some bumps which discouraged us even more but thanks to Nancy with her help and assistance we got through it and can say we are finally FIRST TIME HOME OWNERS!. Nancy is very knowledgeable and helpful if she doesn’t have the answer she is quick to find it. We truly cant thank you enough Nancy!!!” – Trudy Bermudez
