Meet the Team
Barefoot Real Estate was born to help fill the void of "local" real estate agencies. There are plenty of corporate offices, but very few smaller, more personal entities run by people that live AND work along the Jersey Shore.
We have an intimate knowledge of our town (and the Jersey Shore Area), and a commitment to creating a LOCAL Real Estate Agency that believes in a few core principles: Tell the Truth, Do Your Homework, Follow Through, and Have Fun While Doing it. We encourage our clients and staff to kick off their shoes, sit back, and do the right thing.
Mike raised 2 beautiful daughters in Point Pleasant Beach and is now fortunate enough to show his grandsons all around town. Mike was a successful business owner and PPB councilman for many years. He was one of the founders of Barefoot Real Estate in 2011. After many years of hard work and dedication, Mike now splits his time between PPB and Naples, Florida. But don’t worry, when he is NJ, he’s still working as a part-time salesperson for Barefoot.
David was born in Newark, NJ and now lives in Monmouth Beach. While growing up, he would take summer vacations in Long Beach Island for family vacations which is where it all started. During his college years attending Stockton University, David developed an appreciation for living close to the beach and surrounding shore communities. Travelling around the world for technology companies, he worked with banks and financial services firms to prevent financial crimes (money laundering, human trafficking and payments fraud) using software. David has always had a knack for making complicated subject matter easier to understand and that is what he brings to his clients when it comes to buying/selling/investing/renting real estate. He’s always available to discuss your goals and objectives in real estate so feel free to contact him.
Manuela is originally from Germany. She spent many years in New York City working with a large accounting firm, but always wanted to live near the ocean. She was jealous of her friends who lived at the shore and decided to make the leap herself after several visits to Point Pleasant Beach that didn’t seem to last long enough. Manuela likes helping clients make their beach dreams come true and stays close to her roots doing the bookkeeping for Barefoot and several other Jersey shore businesses. She can also give you a run down of every ice cream spot along the coast!
