Tell Us Your Story

Anna helped me with the purchase of my condo in Asbury Park 4 years ago, and with the renting of it this year.

She was fantastic, she offered the best advise possible. I couldn't have asked for a better agent, and she became a friend as well. Her professionalism is second only to her incredible personality. I would highly recommend her to any of my friends and have! I've worked with Realtors in the past who I found pushy and uninterested in my needs and wants. Anna was a breath of fresh air. She is my Realtor for LIFE!!

Thomas Nero Asbury Park

Kelle is amazing and was willing to go the extra mile to help us find our dream home.

With tight deadlines, Kelle helped make it all possible! I would highly recommend her! She was communicative throughout the entire process and made everything seemless. Thank you Kelle!

Ryan Howe

In my 25 years as a real estate investor I have never come across a better, more qualified broker more deserving of a five-star review more than Anna Jackow.

I have worked with many Brokers over the years and I can honestly say Anna Jackow always kept my best interest at heart 100% of the time. She had sold two of my investment properties for me in Ocean Grove New Jersey. Not only did she make the process painless for me but she accommodated my tenants every way possible and even help them relocate to other residences if the situation called for it. When you hire Anna as your broker you are hiring someone who goes above and beyond and she will do whatever it takes to accommodate all parties involved. I can't thank her enough for getting me the best price on the market I could possibly get for both of my properties. Her knowledge of the history of the type of properties I had as well as her ability to get all the legalities in order in a timely manner played a critical role to closing the deals on the sales of my properties in a short amount of time. Really nice to know we still have people who care and take pride what they do! Great job!

Working with Anna could not have been better.

She made buying our dream home and renting our condo a seamless process. She proactively addressed any questions or concerns we had and thought of so many details that we didn't. Her knowledge was incredibly helpful, and responsiveness couldn't have been better.

Randi Moore Red Bank

Kathleen helped me find the perfect apartment.

She was always making sure I was updated on each task to be completed and really made what is usually a stressful process, one of the easier experiences I’ve had finding a new place. Would recommend to anyone, and looking forward to finding our next home with her expertise.

Justin Pastore

Anna Jackow has been in the "family" several years now.

By chance we dropped into her office in 2004 and she found a house for us. She has since helped my children, family, and friends buy and sell several homes. We are always extremely satisfied with her hard work, her intuition, professionalism, and personal care she has given to all of us. She is a great asset to your company! Thank you Anna.

Peggy Jones

There are not enough words to tell you how pleased we were with Thea Bowers!

She was professional, extremely knowledgeable and at the same time very caring and personal. We did not have one glitch in the sale from start to finish and this was due to all she had done ahead of time and along the way. Any question/suggestion that we had she had already taken care of it and anticipated our needs. We rented our house before selling and she took care of every detail in that process as well even to finding wonderful renters as well as managing the property for us. We also cannot adequately express our satisfaction and respect for Thea. There are not just enough adjectives to describe our wonderful experience with her! We highly, highly recommend Thea Bowers! You will not be sorry!!

Mary-Pat Fuller

Robert Roccia represents a short term rental we were looking at.

We needed a comfortable accessible place while I had knee surgery in NJ. He sent us a video (we live in Canada), checked to see if I could handle a few steps to the porch (unit is on the first floor), let us know about dog parks and dog beach access for my service dog and recommended local Kessler rehab centers. He was kind, patient and very knowledgeable about Asbury and its surrounds. Highly recommend him.

Parry Aftab

We have worked with Kathleen over the past year and she made a stressful moving time much easier and pleasurable.

Kathleen was able to sell our townhouse in 3 days for asking price! She was very responsive and took us to all of the different homes we wanted to see, which were a lot! She never made us feel bad about all of the questions we asked. She was patient and had a positive attitude. She always had our best interest in mind. We had a great experience working with Kathleen and would recommend her to those looking to buy/sell!

Pamela Cruz

Kathleen is the best!

! She is so professional and actually makes the process of buying and selling fun! Would recommend Kathleen to all my family & friends. Thank you!!!

Michael Pellican

Janis is so nice.

She showed us a lot of houses and was very patient and flexible. She goes out of her way to find the perfect house for you.

Eli Mass

Kathleen was awesome!

During the search process she showed us homes that were exactly what we were looking for and had a ton of knowledge as well as local connections. When we finally found our home, she asked all of the right questions on our behalf and was able to not only get use the right deal, but was on top of any issue that came up as first time home buyers. She was a pleasure to work with and would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor!

Michael Russano

Wendy was amazing!

She is extremely responsive and keeps you in the loop throughout the entire process. We dealt with a very difficult and unreasonable seller, and an even more difficult selling agent who lacked professionalism, communication, and tact. Wendy never backed down and maintained patience and professionalism. She is extremely knowledgeable and her experience in the industry shines through. Wendy is a rockstar! If you have the opportunity to work with Wendy you are extremely lucky!


Janis went above and beyond to find my friends and I amazing housing right off campus from Monmouth University!

She found us incredibly comfortable homes throughout our years at Monmouth, and had met all of our requested accommodations promptly. She was an absolute pleasure to get to know as well, she definitely takes the time to make a personable impression. If you're a student looking for off campus housing at Monmouth, Janis is your best bet at finding the best home!

Awn Rizvi

Gloria is wonderful!

I moved out of state and was selling my prior home. She took great care of everything from beginning to end. Ensuring the house was ready to be put on the market and using her contacts to coordinate the work, all the way through closing. She takes ownership, is professional and is a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend her!

Bobby Young

My wife and I have been blessed to have a small cottage in Ocean Grove, New Jersey as a second home for many years.

We would spend summers there as well as many weekends throughout the year. It was a sanctuary for us from the busyness of life! Ocean Grove is a wonderful seaside town, with a lovely family-friendly beach, boardwalk, and Main Street. In addition, it is an active town especially in the summer, with community events, musical events and all the family activities produced by the Camp Meeting Association. We came, parked the car, and walked everywhere! We loved our home, but we felt drawn to move closer to family in South Jersey. When that decision is made, who are you going to call….Thea Bowers! We had met Thea a couple of years earlier while looking for help in appealing our taxes. She was terrific, fast, friendly, efficient, and so helpful. So, we called her again, and again she has been simply super! Thea has around her a small army of people she can recommend…attorney’s, financial people, repairmen, photographers, etc. She listens to your concerns and desires of how you want to proceed, quickly accesses your home, has an eye for how to present it to its strength, and discusses with straightforward frankness her professional point of view on how best to sell. Thea knows how and where to advertise, casting a wide net that brings in many interested buyers. She became someone we trusted completely. The end result? Just look at her listings! They are simply the best presentations you will find on all the realtor sites. It paid off. We sold quickly. We highly recommend using Thea as your realtor! Sheila & Phil Smith

Philip Smith

Anna was great with helping me buy my first home.

She was extremely competent, reliable, and responsive and on top of any problem that came up. Anna made the whole process stress free and enjoyable. I would highly recommend.

Nicholas Roberto Keyport

I recently had the pleasure of working with Kelle Burrough from RE/MAX Gateway to sell my home in Aberdeen, New Jersey.

From our initial conversations and throughout the entire process Kelle was always professional, knowledgeable about the market, and knew exactly what I needed to do, in order to sell my home for the best price possible. She extended her services to me fully and went out of her way to make sure that every detail was taken care of from hiring painters and renting a dumpster to arranging for inspections and negotiating with potential buyers. She helped me connect with different services to get my home ready for sale, and each company I used had nothing but kind words to say about Kelle. Although it was a grueling process to move after 24 years, Kelle was always patient and understanding of the time it took before the house went on the market. She never pressured me, but rather gently gave me the nudge I needed to move forward. And after she held an open house that was viewed by fifty plus potential buyers, we almost immediately were bombarded with amazing offers. I cannot thank Kelle enough for all of her hard work and dedication to selling my home. She also assisted me in looking for a temporary home to rent while I see where life will bring me next. I look forward to using her services again when I am ready to find my forever home. Thank you, Kelle, for giving me back my peace!


I have worked with Thea Bowers on three real estate transactions in Monmouth County and would strongly recommend her to others who are looking to buy or sell a home.

Her knowledge of the market is exceptional, and she works tirelessly to achieve the best result for her clients. Thea never compromised her ethics in delivering results that are in her client’s best interest. On a personal note, Thea is friendly, professional, considerate of all parties, and a pleasure to work with.

Seller & Buyer-Robert & Anna I

Janis represented us in the purchase of a home.

She understood what we wanted in terms of location and features, and was thorough in researching inventory and showing us potential properties. Janis was patient and persistent in a difficult negotiation with the seller that led to a successful conclusion. Janis is experienced and knowledgeable, and works hard to achieve the best for her clients. Highly recommended!

Allen Brodsky

We had the most amazing experience with Rick as our real estate agent.

He arranged a very professional photographer which I believed brought in many interested buyers. The house sold on the first day it was listed and then we received a higher offer the next day (and also multiple other offers.) . Also we had to leave town during the process and he went over and above the call of duty to help move things along. He was always very professional and I highly recommend you considering him for your real estate needs.

Kim Mulligan

My husband and I have bought and sold 4 homes in the last 20 years.

Janet Manni was the seller's realtors on the second house we were buying. We were so impressed with her knowledge of the area, the buying and selling process, her professionalism that we contacted her for each of our other real estate transactions. Janet has always demonstrated concern for our needs throughout each sale and purchase. I will and have referred anyone I know looking to buy or sell real estate to Janet Manni.

Karen Schroeder

Sue Costello

Kelle Burrough is an excellent realtor.

I told her the location that I wanted to purchase a home and within less than 30 days we were in contract. In fact, my new home was listed in the morning and within an hour she already scheduled us an appointment— on a Saturday! She’s extremely knowledgeable of the real estate industry and keeps a close eye on daily listings and competitive offers. She goes over and above—even making herself available on nights and weekends. I highly recommend Kelle to anyone interested in purchasing a property. She’s absolutely amazing!!! Thank you so much for assisting me in finding my home sweet home. I love it!

Jacqueline Cistaro

Kelle helped my husband and I buy our first home.

From start to finish she was by our sides each step of the way. She clearly loves what she does and is a professional and effective communicator. You can trust her to get the job done. If you are thinking of listing or buying a home look no further. Her and her amazing team including @danielladalia @michaelperulli and @titleprotectiongroup were so easy to work with and got us to close seemlessly. THANK YOU!!!!

Emily Karinja

@kelle_a_burrough your patience, friendship, guidance and dedication is like none other and without you, getting our forever house would never have happened!

Thank you for everything you did for us and through this process!

Thea Bowers is an amazing broker!

She has extensive knowledge of the area, works tirelessly

Seller & Buyer- J & J Weber

As I was searching for my happy place by the sea, I met Thea Bowers!

Thea is an established realtor with Re/Max Gateway in Ocean Grove. NJ. Although, the place I looked at was not to be my happy place by the sea. Instead it was the beginning of my journey with Thea in finding my happy place by the sea. My experience of working with Thea is best described as follows..... Thea is an individual who is passionate, caring, dedicated to my needs, plus her knowledge of the area and her professionalism makes for finding my happy place by the sea. Thea, takes the time to listen which, is significant, always prompt for appointments, and gets back in a timely manner. Speaking for myself Thea, provided me with detailed information and made herself available to go over any questions/issues I had. Yep, with Thea's help, and support I found my happy place by the sea. If you are looking for your happy place, I would highly recommend working with Thea.... does not disappoint!

Lorrie McGough

As an out of state agent, I referred my mother to Gloria Siciliano to help her with the sale of her home in Ocean Township.

We can not say enough GREAT things about the level of service and care my mother received from start to finish. Gloria’s marketing strategies, knowledge of the area and communication were second to none! As a result, my mom received a FULL PRICE offer within 24 HOURS of listing! Once under contract, we were extremely thankful to have had Gloria on our side to coordinate, oversee and facilitate the inspection process because my mother and I both live out of state. Whether you are buying or selling, we HIGHLY recommend Gloria to help you with your real estate needs!

Amie Kazawic - from Google

I had the pleasure of working with Janet Manni from Re/Max and she was fantastic!

Janet was an exceptional agent! She was very knowledgeable, friendly and truly cared about me and my needs. No matter what time of day or night it was, if I had a question Janet would respond. She was patient and answered every question I had. She was there every step of the way, giving me honest advice and direction. I highly recommend Janet Manni!

Mary Pat Sweeney

When we decided to put our home of 30 years on the market we knew exactly whom we wanted to be our realtor.

Not only is Kathleen extremely professional and knowledgeable about the real estate business, she is reliable and accessible. Kathleen was a pleasure to work with and she guided us through the process with ease. Our home was priced correctly and we received an above asking price offer in one day. Our daughter was understandably sad to leave her childhood home and Kathleen provided us with the photos of our home taken by the photographer: such a kind thing to do. We would highly recommend Kathleen for all your real estate needs.

Marsha Mullen

Gloria and her team are the best agency to work for.

Kathleen Galano


What a great experience we had with Kathleen Galano from start to finish and would recommend her to everyone! The buyer had a home sale contingency the whole time, homes in Jumping Brook were hitting the market priced lower and we had to ignore it and just keep moving forward. Kathleen felt confident after the home inspection and once they received the loan commitment it would happen. We needed up selling over the offer price! Thanks again for getting us everything we wanted and more in the sale of our house!!

Victoria Dillon

I have engaged Tom Tvrdik on two separate home sales, and my experience has been great from listing and all the way through to closing.

He is very professional, knowledgeable and dependable. He knows the Monmouth County area well and is well-connected locally. Tom has a great sense of what is needed to get the sale done, and I relied on his feedback and clear explanation of all the details. Tom took care of everything since I had already moved out of state by the time I had listed my properties. He truly goes the extra mile to get things done, no matter how big or small the task may be. We highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

Anny Wong

Alfredo is the BEST!

He's a straight shooter with tons of knowledge and a timely response to every question. When buying a new home, especially a 4 family property, we needed a lot of vendors from Survey to Insurance and Alfredo's recommendations are always great AND at the lowest prices--every issue in buying our house was made better by his involvement--my wife and I highly recommend him.

Eva Wisnik

Wendy is phenomenal.

Her extreme professionalism, tenacity and knowledge is what you need on your side. Marry that with her vast connections and reputation is the icing on the cake. I highly recommend Wendy!!!


Thea came to the table with an aggressive marketing plan.

She presents herself in a professional manner at all times in her correspondence, emails and appearance. Her vibe is “upscale” which was the type of buyer we were after. Thea is a good agent for high-end real estate, which takes more finesse. I enjoyed working with her, as she was upbeat and has a good sense of humor. The office is always manned, and everyone is nice and helpful. The office is very “ocean grove” and is a good representation of our town.

Seller -Alan W

I recently sold my 2-family home in jersey city, nj.

Working with Kelle from start to finish was an amazing experience! She was able to sell my house with a single open house weekend. This was so unbelievably helpful bc I was 8 months pregnant at the time. With a baby on the way I didn’t have any time or room for added stress with this transaction. Kelle handled everything for me. When she came to take pictures she had already lined up a quick viewing with a local investor. She researched the area and was able to connect with the neighborhood, which helped when finding the right buyer. We had one buyer fall threw and she had the house under contract the next day with a second person interested in the home. She priced perfectly and I received a full offer both times. Kelle and her team are true professionals and not only understand their clients needs but also have a real pulse on the market day to day to get you the best options available. I would highly recommend her, 10 out of 10!

Shavaun Cotter

I would highly recommend Anna Jackow for both selling or buying a home.

She helped us with both in 2015 & in again in 2022. Following her suggestions, we were able to sell our house in a very short period of time. She also understood exactly what we were looking for in buying a new house. The whole process was so perfectly timed that we close on our sale and purchase within one day. Anna always made herself available whenever we wanted to see another potential home – we never had difficulty getting in touch with her and she was always responsive immediately or within a very short period of time. She handled my stress (and that is not an easy task) perfectly. While always being extremely professional, she is also an extremely pleasant, friendly realtor who understands the market and her profession extremely well. She made excellent recommendations for a home inspector, attorney, etc. I am very happy that she was our realtor and she would definitely be my first choice if I need a realtor again.

Michael Davenport

Bob is by far the best realtor around.

He is exceptional from start to closing. This is our second time working with him. He is extremely patient to our needs. Bob helped us find the perfect home for our family. He worked diligently to sell ours despite some setbacks beyond his control. Considering all this was taking place in the latter part of 2019 through April 2020, it is unimaginable how hard Bob worked for us. Covid did not stop Bob! We are forever grateful to his kindness, persistence and professionalism. Bob is the best. He always took our call and was there when we needed him most. He made referral for us, helped with our preparations to move and always had our home he sold looking fantastic for the buyers. Our family looks at Bob as another family member. Put your trust in Bob as we did and you will not be disappointed.


Kelle goes above and beyond for all Her clients.

Her positivity, dedication, and energy are so uplifting. If you are considering buying or selling, we highly recommend her.

Stacy Lauro

Highly recommend!

Broker Janet, with decades of experience, held my hand while selling my house and continues to advise as new strategic opportunities arise. During the process, she anticipated next steps and worked with all parties to make the transaction move smoothly and with optimum results. She was extremely patient and responsive. She invested the time to understand my goals and hurdles. Deeply integrated in Monmouth and Ocean Counties, she understood the ‘intangibles,’ the relationships and personalities that make transactions happen in a way to benefit everyone. I’m extremely grateful. She made me feel like it was a $10mil sale when in reality it was far from it. I can’t recommend Janet and the office more highly. You will be pleased.

Rich Virgil

Kelle helped me patiently for over a year to find my first ever home.

As I was not sure what I was doing, or how the home buying process worked, she helped me with any and every question I had, talking to me on the phone whenever I needed and answering texts right away. She worked non stop until we found the house that was perfect for ME, always sending me house options through email. She made the whole process not only easy, but so much fun and exciting! Highly recommend! (She also recommends the best mortgage guy!)

Shannon Howe

Janet Manni is the only realtor I'll work with.

I've bought and sold several properties with her help over the past 15 years. She's an experienced professional, no-pressure, no-nonsense, always a straight shooter who operates with integrity...and she's a lot of fun too. She knows the market, the neighborhoods and has exactly the kind of knowledge and resources you want when you're buying or selling a property.
