My family and I rented a home through Ashore Realty for a week in August. We had a wonderful experience working with Linda Corbin to find a suitable place. She made sure that we were very comfortable and I can't wait to go back! - Kimberly Coston- Lancaster, PA

I met Dennis Allen from Ashore in 2010. We stayed in touch through the years when looking fro Brignatine property. Anytime I called him over this time he was always available to answer our questions. Finally this March 2015 we called him about 3 listings. He helped us through the discovery period and on May 1 2015 we sat in his office and signed off on our condo. It's been happiness for us ever since and I attribute it to Dennis for his patience and knowing what type and affordable piece of land was best for us. And he's a great guy. Sincerely, Gregg D'Ambrosis. Proud condo owner.
I just settled on a house with Ellen from Ashore Realty. She was very professional & helpful. Our mortgage was called "the mortgage from hell" but Ellen never let our frustration get the better of us. Her positive attitude & pleasant manner kept us from withdrawing several times. I would recommend her and Ashore to anyone wihsing to buy or rent. - The Staffius Family
Working with Dennis & Ashore Realty over the years has been nothing less than a refreshingly wonderful experience. His knowledge of all aspects of the real estate market, are far superior to any realtor or real estate office in the South Jersey area. - Benson Adler
From the first time we met Ellen, she worked diligently to find us what we were looking for in Brigantine! She guided us through the offer process and closing went smoothly; it was amazing. She found us the perfect place at the Islander! We love it and are so grateful for her help. - Marquita and Mike Sharp
We have been using Ellen Corapi from Ashore Realty Inc., for the past several years to rent the home of our dreams in the place of our dreams, Brigantine. Ellen is so patient and wonderful to work with, she oversees every little detail which makes our lives so much less complicated. I highly recommend Ellen and Ashore Realty for accommodating you with rentals for summer or buying your beach home!! - Louise Pontani
Arno, I just wanted to say thank you again for making my first time home buying experience so easy and effortless. I really to appreciate everything that you have done for me. And of course, thank you and Linda both for the kind house warming gift. I am certainly happy to recommend you, Linda and Ashore to everyone! - Mary DeMichele
Dennis Allen - Broker Associate for Ashore Realty was instrumental in bringing an interested Buyer and Homeowner to the closing table. Dennis is well networked in the Atlantic County area to research and identify desirable oceanfront properties for high net worth prospective Buyers. Although my property was not on the market, Dennis was very convincing that our multi-family home was appealing and should be deeded as two condos. I went through the condo process and sold, thanks to Dennis Allen, one of two condos on December 31, 2012. As issues arose during our transaction, Dennis was able to expedite the process and resolve all impediments. I would recommend Dennis Allen and Ashore Realty to interested Buyers and Sellers in Atlantic County as well as the State of New Jersey. - Pat McKay
My husband and I have long dreamed of having a shore home. We finally decided to make the move and selected Brigantine as our destination of choice. We reached out to Dennis Allen to assist us in our search because of the fantastic testimonials he received from former clients. We are pleased to say that we were not disappointed!
We were fairly proactive home shoppers and, for each trip to Brigantine, we provided Dennis with an extensive list of properties that we wished to see. Dennis made it happen. He provided honest feedback on some of our home candidates, preventing wasted time, and offered suggestions that we would not otherwise have considered. We toured 60+ homes over four months, throughout which Dennis patiently shared his knowledge and expertise of the local market and municipal requirements. He guided us through an offer on a great property, along with a rescission of that offer when we discovered violations of the condominium rules and regulations. Dennis stuck with us until we found “the one,” which we recently acquired. Negotiations were handled expertly, leading to a fair purchase price, and settlement proceeded without a hitch.
Dennis has a laid back approach and sense of humor that we appreciated during the sometimes stressful and disappointing house hunting process. However, these attributes are balanced by his sharp business sense and extensive knowledge of the community, local market, and listing agencies/agents. We found Dennis’ knowledge of and experience with property renovations to be invaluable in considering the true cost of houses under consideration. His contacts in the community are also extremely helpful and we feel comfortable with the individuals/companies recommended for home inspections, insurance, renovations, etc. We also appreciated his unwavering confidence that the right house would come along. He was correct and we are thrilled with our purchase.
On a final note, I would be remiss in failing to mention Dennis’ response to Hurricane Sandy. He had our prospective home inspected before the flood waters fully receded. More significantly, Dennis was a major source of information regarding impacts from Sandy throughout the course of the storm. The Ashore Realty web site and Twitter accounts were updated multiple times daily with reports and photographs. Dennis even extended an offer to those who had evacuated to photograph and report on the conditions of their homes and undoubtedly spent countless hours easing people’s minds or at least forewarning them of the damage sustained. This dedication to the community truly sets Dennis apart from the competition. He is an excellent Realtor and, more importantly, a good person.
- Cheryl and Chris Kovaly
Dennis and his staff were exceptionally patient with us as we struggled through several stressful months searching for the perfect beach house in Brigantine. We never felt pressured into making a quick decision so that he could make a sale. He was accommodating when we asked to see many, MANY homes and even after one of our offers wasn’t accepted and another one of our contracts fell through, he remained optimistic that we would find what we were looking for. He was quick to respond to our emails, texts, and phone calls and always made us feel like we were special clients. Dennis’ calm demeanor, sense of humor, and the chocolate chip cookies in the office every Saturday morning made house hunting enjoyable! We look forward to working with him and his entire team again and would recommend him to anybody looking to buy in the Brigantine area. - Tim and Dana Walker
We just closed on a vacation townhouse a few weeks ago, and Dennis was
very helpful throughout the process. We also observed that Ashore
Realty makes a real effort to not just handle sales and rentals, but
also to be a real part of the Brigantine community. We are completely
satisfied, and we will be sticking with Ashore to manage the weekly
rentals of our new property. - Preston Crow
After researching some Jersey Shore communities, we decided to take a look at Brigantine. We looked for a realtor on the internet and contacted Dennis. He showed us around the island and showed us some houses. After that meeting, we were sure we’d found the right community to buy into and the right realtor. Of course, what sealed the deal to pick Brigantine was our first ride on the beach with Dennis’s Jeep and finding out about the four wheel drive beach access!! Dennis understood what we were looking for and never pressured us. We quickly found a home and the sale was completed within less than a month and a half from our first meeting with Dennis. Dennis did a great job in guiding us through the closing process. We were happy with anyone he recommended. He always got back to us quickly when we called or e-mailed him. The real estate transaction was made efficiently with Dennis’ help. He has continued to help us after the sale. We would highly recommend Dennis to anyone. - Wil & Beth Ritter
I have been working with Dennis close to a year in search of my families beach home. His patience, guidance and honesty proved to be invaluable. He always made time to talk, meet or tour a home without any pressure put on me to put an offer in. Actually, many a time he would honestly tell me "I don't think this one is for you". Long story short, Dennis found us a GREAT beach block home at a GREAT price and I could not be happier with his professional and friendly approach to doing business. A++++. I highly recommend him and the Ashore Realty Team!!! - B. Isely
I couldn’t be happier with Ashore Realty! I was so nervous about purchasing my new home, but Dennis Allen made it easy. He was knowledgeable and always made himself available to answer my questions. In addition, anytime I would call the office, the people were friendly and took the time to address my concerns. I know I am going to enjoy my new home and I have Ashore Realty and Dennis Allen to thank for it. - Michelle Yazurlo, New York
Ellen, You really made a difference and that says it all. Thank you for everything. Your professionalism, patience, diligence and being there for us! You're the best! - Rich & Joan Arends
It was great to finally meet Dennis after years of receiving his monthly “best real estate deals in brigantine” e-mails…he hooked us up with one of those deals; provided astute counsel during the offer stage; helped with closing the deal and ensured a smooth, uneventful closing…all in all, a very positive real estate buying experience!
- Joe & Helen Kelleher
It's been three weeks since we sold our beach condo in Ocean City,MD and immediately turned around and bought one here in Brigantine.Yet,we're still pinching ourselves when we reflect on how simply smooth and stressfree the entire process was. We attribute much of this to Dennis and Linda of Ashore Realty. Dennis was always there to guide,research,and advocate for us. All our questions and concerns were addressed and answered in a prompt,professional manner and the lines of communication were always open.
When Dennis had a scheduling conflict,he put us in the very capable hands of Linda,who we found to be equally knowledgeable,very much a professional,and so gracious. Their efforts made our search effortless. We came to Brigantine,fell in love with it,and bought a little piece of it! Life should always be so simple... - Jean and Dan Gulini
This is my first time buying real estate at the Jersey Shore. I knew of no realtors in the Brigantine area. From my first conversation with Dennis I felt comfortable. I never felt pressure as a buyer . He listened to what my needs were and found the perfect home for me. I felt like he protected all of my rights as a buyer and led me in the right direction on many issues. He answers your calls and e-mails in a timely basis and always gets back to you. The real estate transaction was made easy thanks to Dennis. Even after the sale he continues to help me . Dennis is the true professional and I highly recommend his services. - Mike Corbo
If you want a realtor that knows the ins and outs of the island, knows the people on the island, and knows how to negotiate a great deal, then choose Dennis Allen. Dennis helped us find the PERFECT beach house to meet our needs without blowing our budget, which was often tempting to do. He's a pleasure to deal with - which helps when you're spending hours with a person - and was always on our side. I know we'll refer folks to Dennis and I'm sure we'll be asking him for the names of folks to help us upgrade and maintain our home.
- Suzanne and Joe M., Fort Washington, PA
Dennis was extremely helpful in our search for a home in Brigantine. His knowledge of all aspects of home buying and his professionalism, mixed with realism, made is easy to see if the property would fit our needs. Dennis was very thorough with paper work and put together a well executed deal. I felt very comfortable sitting at the closing table knowing we had everything in place. Dennis always had an answer to the questions that are inevitable in such an important purchase. We could not have been happier with the service, expertise and competence of Dennis Allen and Ashore Realty.
- Ray and Sandy Sitarski
Dennis and Ashore Realty were fantastic with helping me buy a home. As a first time home buyer Dennis was very patient and walked me through every aspect of the process from the search to closing. I couldn't be any happier. Looking forward to spending many happy years in my home and I owe it all to Ashore Realty and Dennis. Thanks for making a dream come true!
- Mark in Atlantic City
Dennis helped us find the ideal location in Brigantine. We had been looking on and off for several years. Dennis kept in touch with email updates and enticing snippets about the best listings in town. When we finally dove back into actively looking at properties, he let us go at our own pace, and he only showed us the homes we were interested in seeing. We were very pleased with the whole experience and would recommend Dennis to anyone.
- The Kirwans
Just a few words regarding Dennis Allen! He is the best realtor I have ever had the pleasure to work with. Dennis was always available when I needed him before and during the sale. After the sale he was equally as helpful. He goes out of his way for you. I would not do business with any other realtor now or in the future except for Mr. Dennis Allen, who, I cannot thank enough, for not only being a great business man but also being a friend.
- Tony D'ambra, Houston TX
Dennis - As newcomers to the Brigantine area, Bob and I would like to thank you so much for helping us to find the perfect home for us! We have really benefited from your knowledge of the area and service professionals. We were so pleased with how quickly you were able to identify the right home for us based on our wish list. Throughout the entire transaction you really looked out for our interests. It is obvious our working relationship will not end at that settlement - we look forward to the future!
- Bob and Ann Gorman
Ellen, I would recommend your Realty to all my friends. Friendly atmosphere and problems are resolved very quickly.
- Charlene Schaffer, Philadelphia, PA
We had been in the market for a new house for approximately four years. Where other agents failed, Dennis has succeeded. He is detail oriented and has excellent follow through. He made this happen for us. He and his staff also found us a tenant for our other property in an amazing short amount of time (26 days). As business owners, we appreciate the professional manner in which Dennis conducts himself. We are extremely pleased and would recommend he and Ashore Realty to our friends.
- Kathleen and Thomas Sereni
Dennis, Jeanne and I are so grateful for the professional and courteous manner in which you've guided us to our home away from home in Brigantine. Every part of the process unfolded the way you said it would - NO SUPRISES. You, your supporting cast and your referrals made Jeanne and I feel very confident, comfortable and may I say "trusting". Jeanne and I will certainly relay this experience within our spheres of influence. The new home and its surroundings continue to mesmerize us. The proximity to AC and yet the privacy from it are amazing. The beach, the golf course, the quietness, the community pleasantries are astounding. Jeanne and I have raised 2 wonderful daughters. They both live in Manhattan. We look forward to gathering in Brigantine and spending time with them. We would love to have you and the family come by and meet the Duffy's. Thank you so much! - Steve and Jean Duffy. Staten Island, NY
The best attribute I would say about Dennis is that he did not pressure me in any way or in any direction. He let me decide what I liked and let me bid what I thought was reasonable. In the end, I think it saved him and me a lot of time. Thanks for your efforts. We love the condo!
- Paul Siana
Ashore Realty is absolutely the best choice to make when buying or selling property in Brigantine, NJ. From the very first phone call, I was completely confident that I had chosen the right local realtor to buy our vacation home. Dennis is a wonderful example of how the right person and the right Realtor can make all the difference when going through the entire real estate buying process. My wife and I were given all the time, personal attention and family oriented service we needed to select the right vacation home for our family. Dennis is relaxed, professional, knowledgeable, courteous and proactive. Thank you Dennis and thank you Ashore Realty for making our dream come true! - Gregory and Cookie Vosbikian
Ashore Realty and Ellen Corapi have a special place in my heart. Both were the first to introduce me to the beautiful island of Brigantine. Since then, Ellen has guided me along to where I now own several properties on the island. She is more than a Realtor, she is a friend. - R. Cechak, Gilbertsville, PA
A Testimonial to Linda Corbin and Our "Little Blue" Beach House........
In 2008 a special journey was forseen,
To find a beach bungalow in a town called Brigantine.
Linda Corbin came along to help us on our way,
She helped us with our hunt and had so much to say.
Her service was invaluable, her advice so sincere.
It wasn't long before our dream house would appear.
Linda and her realty group helped us to find our "Little Blue",
With hard work and honesty, I know she will help you!!! - Joan Finlay, Red Bank, NJ
Fantastic to work with! From the moment we settled on our property, Ellen has always been there to support us. We were not just “another closed sale” to her. We so appreciate everyone in that office. We have been working with Linda and her staff for many years and can’t imagine using another Broker to represent us. - Jaime and Laci Leite
Linda, Dennis, Sid and all the wonderful Ashore team: We feel more like partners in our 6 year relationship then customer/Realtor. We are confident in all your services (have used many),,,but most fortunate to have you handling our rentals in both our summer rental condo AND our long term rental condo. We had tried others but find the exclusive listing with Ashore as the best way to go. Here's to more joint success! - Bill McCamy, Palmyra, NJ
Our relationship with Ashore Reality spans over 8 years. Linda supported by her team will go above the call of duty to assist and show their appreciation for your business. With many years experience, the staff is knowledgeable and helpful with the varied problems that come up either by property sales or rental. I have found our interactions with them to be very professional and more directed to the good of the customer.
- Carole Flounders
Ashore Realty has been much more than a real estate agency for me. It not only helped me find my perfect beach place, but consistently year after year provides the best of service & advice. You are treated like an extended family member by Ashore, and they continue to go beyond what is expected of a real estate agency.
- Kevin Pellegrini, Exton, PA
Ellen, It's hard to believe, but we have now been in our beach house for almost 5 years, a place we really love....your diligence in keeping us in the loop when the first buyer decided not to go forward on the deal made it possible for us to have the beach front view I have always hoped for the peaceful atmosphere of Brigantine, what used to be one of New Jersey's best kept secrets. Thanks for making our Brigantine dream come true. -Donna Gentile O'Donnell, Ph.D.
We have been working with Dennis for about 9 yrs. He found us our first shore home and then we bought up and he worked very well with us again. I am a Realtor myself in PA so I knew from the beginning that Dennis and Ashore Realty was the proper choice of someone to work with. Things went very smoothly and there was little to no pressure with the transactions that we did. Highly recommend!!
- The Tedeschi Family
We have been dealing with Ashore Realty for over 3 years. Dennis was extremely patient with us as we labored over finding a beach home in Brigantine. We had come to the island after looking at other resort areas and fell in love with the small town community. There is an overwhelming air of community pride and the desire to keep their homes clean, well landscaped and attractive.
It took a while to find exactly what we wanted at the price we could afford. Dennis never waivered in his interest or care or the amount of energy he expended while searching properties for us. He was always willing to adjust his personal schedule to allow for us to come down to look at properties.
Dennis was extremely knowledgeable not only about the real estate but also about tax laws, state and federal regulations, settlement issues, etc.
Linda Corbin was also very knowledgeable in rules and regulations, always willing to take time to help us, whether it be answering questions or showing us homes.
Now that we own in Brigantine we are going through Ashore Realty to rent our home. They found a yearly renter almost immediately. Last year we switched to seasonal rentals and we were very pleased with the amount of business we received through them.
We would highly recommend both the staff mentioned above and the real estate company in general for high quality customer service, courtesy and professionalism.
- Toni and Pat Matthews, Allentown, NJ
Ellen, We feel like we are family and have always been treated as valued partners in our relationship with you and the Ashore Team.We tell friends,relatives and co-workers about our wonderful relationship with Ashore Realty. Thanks Jay & Donna Andriani
Dennis and everyone at Ashore were extremely helpful in our search for purchasing our vacation home. They listened to our needs, and spent the time necessary to find what we wanted. We never once felt pushed into looking at a home we were not interested in. This patience found us our perfect beach house. They truly know the meaning of personalized customer service. Thanks, and see you at the beach!
- The Hanson Family, Wrightstown, Pa
Ashore found me the perfect vacation condo in Brigantine. The closing process was a breeze. I would highly recommend this company to my family and friends.
- Chuck B. Smithtown , NY
Ashore always found us our perfect summer rental until we were ready to buy, then they found us the perfect beach house. The deal was smooth and problem free. We couldn't be happier! Thanks!!
