Beach Haven Friday
Friday was a perfect day to visit with realtors on Long Beach Island. Our first stop was with David W. at Van Dyk Realty. David and I follow eachother on Twitter (@DavidWyrschJr) and frequently chat about the happenings on the island.
Van Dyk has been referring us to their vacationers for some time now. We are so happy they included us on their website and always look forward to making their customers stays more relaxing and enjoyable.
From there, we popped into a few other realty offices to thank them for their referrals with some milk and cookies. We visited Mancini, Bay Shore, Diane Turton, Prudential, Newbern, Oceanside Realty and LBI Realty.
We asked each realty office about rentals this year. They ALL said that rentals are up from where they were this time last year. Many attribute this to the warmer winter where vacationers don't mind checking out rental properties in the winter. My advice: book your vacation rental now!
After all that hard work, we had to stop and try a "new to us" place. We tried out Stefano's California Grill for a burger and some clam chowder. If you aren't verse in Chowderfest winners - they are the LBI Grand Champions for both Manhattan and New England Clam Chowder.
