The Realtor that brings you Home!

THIS VILLAGE IS ON THE RR TRACKS AND BETWEEN POLICE AND FIRE DEPT. I WOULD SAY NEVER!!!
As someone trying to find a good investment down the shore, I find it troubling that a local agent would take such a hard stance against a property such as this one. Have you been down to the building, have you seen the models, looked at the actual square footage, compared it to Sylvan Lake, or anything else for that matter? I have and I don't think you're being fair. Your responses have an air of bias, lacking the objectivity one would expect from a real estate expert, as you purport to be. Incidentally, have you seen the numbers on commuter villages, have you read the articles on how favorably banks look at such properties compared to others in these economical times. Have you heard about the billions being poured into the new train-commuter tunnel system recently approved between NJ and NY. Additionally, I didn't see a single unit at 1,000 s.f. - all were bigger, and I was recently walked through one of the models that were just about 1,550 s.f. And why would you be putting down the town itself so aggressively. I know a fair amount of people who highly recommend Bradley as a great family town. It seems that way to me - what did Bradley Beach do to you that's made you so bitter? I guess I could understand if you had a hidden agenda against the property, but the whole town????
According to the property information on the "official" Monmouth County MLS, BBVillage sq ftg begins at 1,000 sq ft and increases to not more than 1,500, not the 1600 sq ft you are reporting. Slyvan Lake floor plans also begin @ 1,000 sq ft. Inaccurate representations on the MLS open up brokers/realtors to legal liability; therefore, I trust the reporting accuracy.
The bottom line here is location, location, location.
Diane Turton agency has a separate "new construction" division. Individual agents are not made aware of the prospecting effort of such divisions until such time as a contract is secured and published. Therefore, I doubt Ms. Krul was even aware of DT's effort to secure the BBVillage project. Also, the opinion of one Diane Turton agent does not represent the DT organization as a whole. Finally, Ms. Krul's comments are a transference of client feedback to which I concur.
I look forward to learning how many township officials invest in this project and I wish these developer the best of luck!
I'm also surprised that real estate "professionals" in the area would be putting down a project that has been so welcomed by the town - like I said I did my homework and even spoke to the chief of police at Bradley - everyone seems to be high on the project. Lastly, I was told that Diane Turton's group was actually trying to become the exclusive broker on this project - I think Mary Holder ultimately got the job. It's troubling to me that now Turton's group is putting the project down. Make's you wonder about the level of objectivity and sincerety the real estate "professionals" out there are really providing to potential home buyers.
