Get to know Karl Hess
If you're thinking about buying, selling or investing in Real Estate on The Jersey Shore in Ocean County, it shouldn't be 'about me,' it should be about you. It should be about your hopes and dreams. It should be about your life and your aspirations. It's important that the agent you choose to help guide you through this journey is your trusted expert and advocate.
If you're curious..I was born and raised "The Jersey Shore", but lived and travelled all over the world as a member of the United States Air Force. I have 4 children which certainly gives me insight into what families are looking for in a home and a community. I've spent 20 years buying, selling and leasing property from Texas to Alaska and Britain to New Jersey. This provides a unique perspective on relocation requirements, from both the sellers and buyers point of view.
People always ask me; "You've lived in all these different places, why choose The Jersey Shore? Simple Answer: 'The ocean, the city is close and the people are awesome!' This is where we CAN have it all!

"A very professional Realtor, we have the highest regard...I would not hesitate to recommend you..."
Aileen, Brick Twp03/14/2014
Karl's plan to get our house sold is "marketing on steroids." Highly recommended!
I tried different agents while searching for a home in Manahawkin then talked to Karl. We found a house within a couple a weeks and even though there was some hiccups before we closed, Karl stayed persistent and we got the house of our dreams. The best

"If you’re thinking about buying a home on The Jersey Shore and you’re not sure which agent to choose, may I suggest that you talk with Karl Hess. While it might not seem that the buyer's agent matters, let me tell you – it does.
Karl has a tremendous grasp of the local housing market...after all, he was born and raised on the Jersey Shore and he possesses that intuitive knowledge when it comes to value...and the statistical analysis to back it up.
Karl is patient and persistent. I know of clients Karl has worked with that looked at homes from Point Pleasant Beach all the way to Holgate on LBI (that's 30+ miles of shoreline!) to find them the perfect home....with outstanding results!
Karl provides exceptional service. You cannot ask for a better Realtor to guide you through the process. Karl's experience, patience, market knowledge and his relationships within the local communities are invaluable when finding and buying your dream house.
Karl is a true professional and in a class by himself. I recommend him wholeheartedly!!"

"I tried to sell my house without using a Realtor for about 6 months...with minimum success. Karl came in with a very professional marketing plan that had my home under contract in just 2 weeks. I could NEVER have anticipated that the home would sell that quickly. Kudos to Karl, he's the best!"
Thomas, Toms River06/12/2012
"After speaking to numerous agents about selling my home I called Karl. He gave me great tips on how to make my home more 'presentable' and brought "his team" of other professionals like a photographer, lawyer, contractor, etc, etc....All top notch! My home was on the market for less than 8 weeks before it was sold!"
Michelle, Lacey Twp05/25/2012
"I first listed my home with a personal friend. She was not a full time agent and she simply placed the listing in the MLS. The house not only didn't sell, we only had a few showings. I talked to Karl, I knew he was a professional...we listed the house and we had an acceptable offer within 1 month. What more could I ask for?"
