"It has been a particular pleasure and bonus for me to have "worked" with such a lovely and gracious lady.

I will miss our regular conversations that I have become happily accustomed to over the last several weeks. When we decided to sell our beloved home, we pondered whether to place it with a realtor or to try to sell it on out own. You proved without any question that we made the right decision.

After we get settled into our new "digs", I hope that you and your husband will accept an invitation to visit us.

In any event, I wish you continued success and, most importantly, good health. May the future provide you and your family the best that God has to offer."

One in Westfield and one in Morristown, a lot of people asked why I did not list my own house. Well its out of my area and I knew I could not do the proper job on it.

"I would have given Mary Ann O'Shea a 6 star but there was only 5. Mary Ann stuck with us through the Sandy Storm even when there was little activity after the storm. Such a sweet personality, I always felt comfortable discussing issues with her, She was right there when we needed to find reliable contractors. Communication was superb, not living in N.J. I thought it would be difficult from Tennessee. She finally found a client and a sale which made our day. We consider her our forever friend. Good luck, best wishes Mary Ann,"

- Jill Schweighardt


"It is not clear to me how I can adequately thank you for seeling the house. Your knowledge and advice were so valuable. All the professionals you employ, the weekly reports from Internet searches and viewings, the photographer, the people you suggested to fix things, clean things, etc. were fine workers who did a great job. And thanks to your husband for installing the fire extinguisher.

You were always available to answer questions, make suggestions. Your diligent hard work, your expertise brought so many people through the house. And then the whole process went so smoothly, so pleasantly.

I have already recommended you to a number of people and I will continue to do so.

I cannot thank you enough for all you did."

I'm treating everyone to dinner tonight! It was really a pleasure to work with such a professional as yourself.

Best of luck, and remember to take that Nantucket vacation!"

- Linda


"If you are looking for a great (sweet) agent to help you buy or sell..."look no further"!

We were out-of-towners seeking to sell a commercial property on Long Beach Island. After the Sandy Storm we required someone to help us process the grueling task of repairs and find us a buyer. Mary Ann stuck with us through the (SOLD) finish, often times I wondered how or why she kept by our side.! Always there to answer any questions day or night, I know "I" must have been a pest. So please give her a call, you will be pleasantly greeted.

Thanks for everything Mary Ann"

- Mr & Mrs Charles Abbott-Tennessee


"Thank you so much for the gift. It was really not necessary but is appreciated. We will use it for something special to remind us of you!!

Thank you again for all you help this past year. We were getting discouraged, but everything worked out very well in the end. I am very happy that you were able to help us purchase the house that gave us many years of fun and good times - and then to help us sell it when our life needs changed. You're the best!!

Have a wonderful summer and enjoy you new grandchild. What a wonderful gift!!!"

- Phyllis and Elias


"Lloyd and I want to thank you so much for the generous house warming gift. We truly enjoyed working with you and appreciated all your help. Advise with the purchase. I'll call you when we are in the house and settled a bit. Love the shore. You made a long time dream come true. All the best."

- Maria & Lloyd Kent


"We want to thank you so much for the very generous you gave us at settlement. We did not expect it but we so much appreciate iut. We also want to thank you for all your guidance and help during the buying and selling process. You made everything so easy for us.

I enjoyed knowing you and working with you. Much luck and happiness to you and your family.” With sincerest thanks and regards,

Mary Ann, I cannot thank you enough for your exceptional professionalism in helping me and my family purchase a home on LBI. You were so much help and so very professional with every step of the purchasing process. Even when I had almost lost hope that the purchase would happen, you came up with the perfect person to assist. And, assist may not be the correct word for all the help we received. You even recommended a lawyer who was excellent. I think I remember both of you saying at the closing ‘this was the Miracle Purchase.’”

- Ruth and Family

Thank you once again for helping to bring about a timely sale of the property in difficult circumstances."

- Charles M. Arakelian


"You were wonderful throughout this process. Your professionalism and personal concern / interest was evident at every step of the process. We were all very impressed with the manner in which you marketed the property and very pleased with the result. To have languished for 3 years and then suddenly sell within 2 months of meeting you---unbelievable. I have already told friends who mentioned interest in LBI that if they get serious about buying, I already have a Realtor recommendation for them."

- Tom

"Dear Broker,

We would like to take this time to inform you of the pleasurable experience we had (as both sellers and buyers) working with one of your agent, MaryAnn O'Shea. We first met MaryAnn several years ago when we bought our first home on Long Beach Island. MaryAnn professionally guided us through this purchase process and we adored our first home. However, it did not take us long to figure out we wanted a home on the bay. We once again called MaryAnn and explained our situation. We were confident MaryAnn could sell our home and find us a new one, so she listed our house on the market and she quickly sold it for us. The difficult part for her was finding us a home on the water that we liked and could afford. She constantly kept us informed about the market and tirelessly showed us property after property after property. Not once did she seem annoyed at our endless phone calls and questions.

She called us one day at work to tell us she had found a home on the water that had just been listed that day. She had already previewed it for us and thought we would really like it. We trusted her judgment and drove down that night. She was right, we loved it. We started the purchasing process and ended up buying the home. This has been our first summer in our new home on the water and we are having a blast. We know none of it would be possible if it weren't for MaryAnn and her sincere desire to find us a home we would love.

Throughout both the selling and purchasing process, we found MaryAnn to be knowledgeable, honest, professional, and supportive. She frequently went far beyond the call of duty for us. Her dedication to her work shows through by her positive and cheerful attitude. We continue to recommend MaryAnn to everyone we can.


- Jim & Brooke Mulroy


"Thank you again for all of your diligent and professional efforts; you've clearly established the high water mark for customer service. You were extremely responsive, and a pleasure to work with, throughout the entire process.. My only regret was that it wasn't your buyer. If you ever need a reference ( I'll certainly sing your praises to anyone I know looking for a Realtor ), please do not hesitate to call me. Thanks again..."

- Tony & Terry
