Hear what our clients have to say about our service

"There are so many realtors on 7 mile island. How do you choose one? Dan Bowersock is the obvious choice. We have known Dan for several years, both as an owner who rented through his team and also as a homeowner who sold my home in Avalon in 2 weeks. He has the knowledge, the experience and the contacts. His results speak for themselves. His team is second to none as I've had extensive experience working with them. He is articulate and has excellent attention to detail. He also has the skills to appropriately navigate complex real estate transactions. Most of all, I trust Dan. He is honest, and forthright which, in my opinion, matters more than anything." - Steve H.

“Kim gives her clients 100% of her time and attention.  It was a pleasure working with her as she is not a pushy agent.  The relationship after closing remains the same if you need a contractor or have any issues Kim is the go to person.” – Bob B.

 “Kim was supremely knowledgable, responsive, and all in. She was the perfect realtor in a tough market and always had my back.  Kim also maintains an elite network of contractors and repair personnel that she has vetted for years.  This was pivotal in my purchase as Kim brought an amazing contractor with her to a viewing so he could estimate the repair costs of a foundation issue.  Armed with that estimate, we made the purchase.  Her network also kicked in strongly after the purchase. In some sense, it felt like Kim was buying the house also.  You can’t go wrong with her.” – Paul Maykish

 “We met Kim buying our first rental/vacation home.  She knew everything to make it happen. She also was instrumental in finding us a renter for the property. Its been over a year and she is still always available to answer questions I have.  Hoping to purchase another one with her help!”- Julie Springer

 “Kim was awesome to work with to sell our property.  She was always available to answer any questions we had.  Kim handled all the little details needed to sell the property.  Kim coordinated the showings and open house always making sure it worked on our schedule. I whole heartedly recommend Kim to handle your real estate transaction. Many thanks for making this a smooth process!”- Charlie P.

 “Kim is great. She helped us buy 2 houses and sell one.  No pressure. She’s always available to answer questions. She doesn’t mind when we want to see lots of houses in one day. She knows what we like.”- Susan B.

 “We bought our new home through Kim Elisano.  She made it easy from beginning to end. When it came time to list our old house, we chose Kim again. She did not disappoint! AGAIN, smooth sailing from beginning to end.” Ronna Pomykacz

 "Kim is great to work with! She helped us find exactly what we were looking for. She is professional, friendly, quick in responding to our needs, patient, and knowledgeable.  I would recommend Kim as a trusted realtor to friends and family!”- Linda C.

"In December 2020, I called Holly Rennie to explore the possibility of selling our property at 2188 5th Avenue, Avalon. Holly did a full analysis of the value, which resulted in us finding another home before listing 2188 5th Avenue with Ferguson Dechert. Within just a few days, we had a contract on our new home. Holly made it work while protecting our interests. Within a day I was contacted by Becky Szegda who coordinated the entire purchase process, including dates, time, places and dollars. Becky ensured it would be a smooth process. She exceeded our expectations. A true added value to Ferguson Dechert. Along with being professional, I feel I made a new friend. So now we own a new home in Cape May Courthouse, and then listed 2188 5th Avenue with Ferguson Dechert. I can only repeat my satisfaction with Holly and Becky as stated above. Many thanks for a great experience!" - Allan and Marlene Phillips 

"Holly and her team, Becky and Kim, made selling my Avalon condo a seamless, stress-free process. They proved to be astute, honest, friendly, and hardworking professionals who have an acute knowledge of the real estate market. Holly was there day and night to answer my phone calls and respond to my questions and concerns. I was delighted that she worked diligently with me to help me attain my asking price! Also, because my primary home is two hours away from Avalon, Becky and Kim always stepped in very competently to be my eyes and ears because I could not be physically present during inspections and for small projects. They kept me informed at all times. I always had peace of mind working with Holly, Becky, and Kim and I would highly recommend these top-notch real estate professionals at Ferguson Dechert!" - Frances Darby

"It was a pleasure doing business with the Dan Bowersock Group at Ferguson Dechert Real Estate. Dan, Kim, and Becky kept me informed every step of the way. They were professional, knowledgeable, and made the process seem so easy" - Deb Gaskill

"Dan was great to work with. My questions were answered thoroughly and in a timely manner. Dan went the extra mile to make sure that my home purchase went smoothly" - Ben Jackson

"As we searched for a home in Stone Harbor, we happened upon Dan and Becky and the process which ended up in a great find and closing was smooth and efficient. Both Dan and Becky facilitated all of the ins and outs from the simple to the complicated. If you are looking for expertise and consideration, I would highly recommend their services."  -Sam Hankin                                                                                                                                                             

"We recently bought a house in Avalon and used Dan Bowersock as our real estate agent. Dan was terrific! He has a great team that supports him, as well. Dan provides very valuable insight into the market that others don't do well. He was knowledgeable, patient, and listened very well to our concerns while also learning more about what we were interested in. What is also very important to note is that Dan's team is very helpful and involved to make this complicated transaction come to a closure. I highly recommend Dan and his team." --Mike and Randie Bishof

"About seventeen years ago my wife and I decided we wanted to purchase a property in Avalon or Stone Harbor. After visiting several real estate firms and mostly being ignored we stopped by Ferguson Dechert and inquired about a property. We were asked to wait a minute while they located the sales representative, Dan. Although we didn't know what we could afford or what kind of investment it would be, Dan patiently assisted us and we purchased our condo from his firm. Dan recommended how we should furnish it and what the weekly rates would be. Over the entire seventeen years of owner ship we were able to have every week rented that we had available. His team of Lisa and Becky could not have been more helpful. When I had a question about anything, it was promptly answered. The whole experience from purchase, renting, and even deciding to list the property, has been above expectations! Their team is the best in my opinion. I would recommend Dan Bowersock and his team at Ferguson Dechert to anyone who would be interested in purchasing, renting, or selling their shore property." 
-Mike and Leslie Bowman

Dan and his team's commitment to executing with professionalism, referrals with contractors, plus related services to close were exceptional. We will forever be grateful for what he did for our family!"
-Thomas and Nancy Verrichia

-Irish Malibu, LLC

"It was a pleasure to work with Dan. We immediately recognized and valued your expertise and knowledge of that area. We also appreciated the many excellent local contacts he was able to provide. Thank you very much for helping us to secure the house we fell in love with on our first property exploratory visit to Avalon! Becky was super to work with, too! Many thanks for all of the efforts to get us over the finish line; it takes a village!
-Andrew & Deirdre McDermott

"I wanted to say THANKS to Dan, Becky and all of the Ferguson Dechert team that assisted in the sale of my house at 238 75th Street in Avalon. Dan and his team not only delivered on the promises made throughout the entire process but they made what can, at times, be a very stressful transaction, much easier. Thanks again, Dan and Becky, I look forward to working with both of you in the future!"     
-Tom Stabley, 238 75th Street, LLC 

"A local friend of ours recommended Dan Bowersock at Ferguson Dechert Real Estate several years ago when we first entertained the idea of shore home-ownership. Dan made our decision to purchase our shore home property so easy, as he somehow intuitively knew exactly the type of home we were looking for and in our price range. After several years of thoroughly enjoying our shore home, we made the decision it was time to sell. Again, we turned to Dan to be our sales representative and working with him was just as amazing the second time around! Very quickly he found a buyer for our beloved home and within a perfect monetary selling range. Dan's assistant, Becky, was equally amazing. She is so incredibly knowledgable, easy to work with and so very kind. I would highly recommend this dynamic duo for any of your buying or selling needs in the Avalon/Stone Harbor area."     
-Janice Kelly  

"We recently purchased a property from Dan Bowersock at Ferguson Dechert. What an easy and terrific experience. Everything was easy for us. They both showed us properties that were in our price range without putting us above our comfort zone. When we wanted to see the houses, scheduling was easy and at our convenience. When we finally settled on a home, Dan's assistant Becky Szegda took care of everything. From the home inspection to the necessary insurance requirements needed. I would highly recommend Dan and Becky to help you purchase a home on the 7 Mile Island. Thank you both very much for making a big decision comfortable!"
Irvine Hurd - Captain and owner of the Avalon Fishing Fleet

"We owned an investment property in Avalon for five years. Dan Bowersock and Becky helped us with renting the house and six months ago with preparing the house for sale. They were a pleasure to work with and Dan was very knowledgable/helpful in terms of positioning. We followed his advice and got very close to asking price after it had been on the market for only three days. During the settlement process; both Dan and Becky were most helpful. I highly recommend him!"
-Bob McFarland

“We started our home search over 2 years ago with Dan, taking a break in between to look at some other options. When we got serious about purchasing a home again, we never wavered on coming back to Dan as his experience always shined through. As first time buyers in the area, we had lots of questions and Dan always was there for us, with quick responses. Never did we feel pressured in the process. Dan is a top-notch realtor and we would recommend him to anyone looking to purchase in Avalon and stone harbor.
- Scott and Joan Lee

“Dan has truly been our Avalon eyes and ears for years, first by consistently securing us the perfect rental for family vacations, and then, by not resting until he found us our amazing Avalon home we just?purchased. Dan genuinely shares the excitement in searching for the?right property, and has an incredible amount of knowledge and expertise to deliver.”
-Chris & Peggy B.

“After renting in Avalon for more than 25 years, we finally made the plunge. Every five years or so, we’d look at homes to buy but the time was never quite right. Dan was patient and always happy to show us what was on the market. When we finally decided to buy, Dan and the Ferguson Dechert team were a pleasure to work with. They were not only responsive, they anticipated questions before I even knew to ask. I’m a hard grader but I’d give Dan and his team five stars!”
-Donna & Jeff P.

“DAN BOWERSOCK DESERVES 10 STARS, NOT 5, IN ALL ABOVE AREAS! ?Dan has been a colleague for over two decades. I have been his client and customer, and he has been mine. As a licensed real estate agent in NJ, I have worked with Dan on numerous transactions: buying; selling; renting. He has been and continues to be among the very best agents on 7 Mile Beach. Integrity, knowledge, and expertise are superlative! Dan LISTENS … one has his full attention when working together … and he wastes no one’s time. Dan is patient, a good negotiator, and his support staff is excellent!”
-Jerry & Diane H.

“Dan has great local knowledge and “feel” for the marketplace. His experience and ability to listen to our needs was evident by the types of properties he introduced us to and the eventual one we settled on. I would recommend Dan for any type of purchase / sale you are looking into.”
-Jim M.

“Dan’s knowledge of the Avalon area was key in making this purchase a success! He was on top of every detail throughout the entire process. Dan is great to work with and I would recommend him to anyone buying or selling in the area.”

-George & Patti K.

“Dan has terrific knowledge of the Avalon reality market. Dan is patient and persistent at the same time which is great for both the seller and the buyer. I would recommend Dan to anyone interested in purchasing or selling a home in Avalon.”

“Dan Bowersock sold us our first home in Avalon, NJ in 1990. It may have been Dan’s first house sale, since he was so young! He has been a friend ever since to our family. We have always been able to count on Dan, for everything from helping friends find a rental, show us a selection of rental or sales possibilities, give us sources for services locally, advice on any variety of issues. But we will always call on Dan for any Real Estate questions or needs. He has helped numerous friends who we sent his way, and he is continually kind to even those who do not end up renting or buying. Besides being friendly and professional, Dan has competent assistants when he is away or busy. It’s been a great relationship for us”.
-Bill & Vicki C

“We’ve had several transactions buying and selling properties within the last 16 years with Dan. Dan listens to what you want and moves swiftly to get the job done. He is knowledgeable in his field and passes that on to his clients. Dan always keeps you in the loop. We’re fortunate to be owners in Avalon and credit Dan for helping us buy our first home 16 years ago. Wow! How time flies!”
-Pete and Mary Beth C.

“Dan is a true real estate professional who clearly understands the Jersey shore market, is very persistent and creative in getting properties attractively marketed and sold quickly.”
-Todd V. (Rep. for Seller)

“I wanted to thank you for your time and efforts during the sale process. There was a lot of paperwork with permits, etc. but you got us through it! Your regular updates were greatly appreciated and helped keep me calm!”
-Linda C., Seller

“Dan is extremely knowledgeable of the Avalon area and has a very professional and low pressure style. Dan went well above my expectations during the entire sale process and when I needed his help after the close. I highly recommend Dan.”
-Charles B., Buyer

“I have had the pleasure of working with Dan on purchasing, renting and selling properties in the Avalon N.J . area for over 8 years. He has always proven to be honest, hard working, knowledgeable and helpful in every aspect of these transactions. I would highly recommend Dan Bowersock to anyone who is interested in buying, selling or even renting at the shore.”
-Brian M., Seller

“Dan helped me stage my house for buyers. In addition, Dan resolved all of the ongoing issues and helped me negotiate with the buyer for certain items. Dan was professional during the entire process and was a pleasure to work with.”
-Sam. A., Seller

“My wife and I have purchased and sold several homes, both seaside/vacation areas as well as more traditional locations, and we have both remarked several times, that Dan has been, without a doubt, the best realtor we have used, anywhere. We only wish we could have had Dan help us in some other locations as well (Dan is not licensed in Florida & PA). Dan’s local expertise in Avalon / Stone Harbor is top-notch, but his general business / real estate excels as well. Dan is also very well respected on 7 Mile Island; not only his peers, but with other professionals in the housing / building business as well. Our sale last fall of our bay front duplex in Avalon validated even more how picking the wrong realtor can be a very, very expensive mistake. Our duplex neighbors used another firm & realtor, (because they had purchased their unit from that realtor and he did “OK”). From the beginning through their closing, my wife and I felt first hand their frustration and the financial “penalty” that they experienced. We never hesitate to recommend Dan to anyone we know is considering buying or selling properties on 7-Mile Island. Please do not subject yourself to a sub par realtor experience, that may end up being a costly mistake.”
-Jack A., Seller

“Wow, we have been associated with Dan for over 10 years ! During those years, Dan has rented us numerous homes in Avalon. Both Dan and Lisa always went the extra mile to find the home just right for our family. We also are very fortunate to have recently purchased a home in Avalon this past fall. And again, Dan and Jane gave us the utmost attention to making sure we were satisfied with our vacation home. Dan is extremely professional, patient, caring, kind, detail oriented and friendly. Both Dan and Jane treated us as though we were their only clients, constantly replying to all of our needs. Dan is an asset to anyone interested in purchasing or renting a home in Avalon.”
-Fran and Cathy G., Buyer

“Dan Bowersock is an excellent realtor, and a wonderful person as well. We had the pleasure of connecting on a phone call meeting initially and decided to work with Dan because of his friendliness, knowledge and expertise in the field . Dan is professional, down to earth and easy to work with. Anytime we called or emailed he was always available or willing to get back to us with an answer ASAP. Dan was able to facilitate our offer on a home with a quick sale of agreement. We highly recommend Dan as a realtor and happy to call Dan our friend as well.”
-Ray & Mary C., Buyer

“This is our first home purchase and Dan’s guidance and in-depth knowledge of Stone Harbor/Avalon and the local vacation commerce was very helpful. Dan and his staff made what could have been a very daunting process into a much easier and comfortable exchange. We would recommend Dan to anyone looking for a home on Seven Mile Island.”
-Shane & Pat M., Buyer

“We have been very busy but each day we wake up our smile grows bigger. This home and Avalon is very special and we are very blessed. Thank you for supporting us in our journey. We know is was not easy negotiating this deal and that you are responsible for making it happen. No other realtor could have pulled it off. You are amazing and we wanted to thank you for your sacrifice in making the deal possible.”
-Adrian & Marilyn H., Buyer

“We have worked with Dan and his team over the last 10 years in buying, renting and now selling our Avalon home.

We can heartily recommend his services for your real estate needs.”
-Rick and Mary S. Seller/Buyer

Dan and his team are true professionals who know the market inside and out. They work hard to ensure the buying and selling process is seamless and kept us well informed every step of the way. On top of all this, the team is full of just really great people who are a delight to deal with. Thanks again for helping us with all our real estate needs in Avalon.”
-Joe and Kiersty McDougall
