About Michael Gilsenan Real Estate Professional in Manasquan, New Jersey
Mike is extremely pleased to be joining Ward Wight Sotheby's International Realty's Manasquan office.
Having earned a BS in Marketing Management from St. Peter's College of Jersey City and with 20 + years of experience in sales and marketing, Mike believes that the first important role of responsibility towards a client is to listen attentively to their personal needs, as buying or selling a home is a huge financial commitment and will likely be one of the biggest decisions a client will make in their life. With this being understood it is important to be sensitive to the emotional undertakings a client may experience during the process so they know your dedication and best interests are towards them versus just closing a deal.

In 1994 Mike moved to Toms River with his wife Ann Marie where they raised their two sons, Matthew and Michael Jr. who recently attended and graduated Monmouth University and still live in the area. 'I always knew one day I would raise my own family by the Jersey Shore as I love everything about the area with its beautiful beaches, quaint towns, superb restaurants, rich culture and excellent school systems.'
Mike is very familiar with the Southern Monmouth and Northern Ocean County communities of Toms River, Brick, Brielle, Manasquan, and Sea Girt. Beyond his work life, Mike loves spending time with his family and friends and their family dog, Sam who is a West Highland Terrier.
