Happy 2021, and we hope that you enjoyed the holidays, and remain healthy!

The real estate market continues to be very active –  inventory in both Bay Head and Mantoloking remains at historic lows, and demand is high (for sales and for rentals). If you or someone you know is thinking of selling — or even renting for the summer, please reach out to us.

We recently launched an enhanced website – – this site complements our existing site at, and better enables us to market our listings and ourselves via social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn.

For those who are interested in information on eligibility and on how to register to receive the COVID-19 Vaccine in New Jersey, please visit:  If you are in Florida, please visit to learn where and how to get the vaccine.

As you will see in the video below, both towns have experienced beach erosion, but Mantoloking’s beaches appear to be faring better.  Work is underway to repair the existing groins Bay Head’s beaches.



Around the Towns

In Bay Head, an ordinance was recently passed prohibiting rentals of less than seven days.

The town also accepted a recommendation that the preferred location for the new cell phone tower is in the public works lot, in the vicinity of the existing salt bins.

Public Works will be issuing new recycling stickers to vehicles entering the Recycling Center – after residency is verified, a public works employee will apply the sticker – they will not be mailed out.  More information can be found on the town website.

In Mantoloking, the town continues to discuss whether or not a municipal administrator position should be created and filled.  More information can be found on the town website.


Other than the typical monthly town meetings, there are currently no scheduled in person events that we are aware of.  Most events remain virtual including church services, and more.


Most remain online – the best source of information right now is the town websites – check for frequent updates and changes.  Bay Head and Mantoloking both offer “dial-in” options for the public to attend their meetings.  Note that Mantoloking has started to use Zoom for some meetings – the connection details will be posted when the meeting notices are.

If you can’t find an answer to your question, please let us know.
