WHO IS BAREFOOT REAL ESTATE

Find Out More About Our 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.

Kim Surowicz Allen

Kim is the owner and broker at Barefoot Real Estate. Her family has owned a house in Point Pleasant Beach since 1979. Kim grew up in North Jersey, attended college in New York City, moved to Los Angeles and traveled to many places in between, but part of her heart has always been at the Jersey Shore. After nearly 2 decades in film production, Kim finally decided to settle down at the beach. She met Tim shortly after Superstorm Sandy hit and they ended up rebuilding their home together. They have been happy full time residents and business owners ever since. In addition to Barefoot, Kim also owns and operates Shore Riders Bike Rentals.

TIM Allen

Tim has a reputation of being a Jack-of-all trades. He “temporarily” relocated to NJ from Michigan after Super Storm Sandy to help with the re-build. Within a few months of working here, he met Kim. The rest is history! Tim is a US Navy veteran and the owner/operator of his own local construction business. You’ll find him fixing, repairing or preserving just about anything negatively affected by happenings of people or the corrosive salty maritime environment. It’s also pretty common to find him delivering Shore Riders Bike Rental orders in his truck.

CALI COULTER

Cali Coulter was born and raised in Bay Head and graduated from Point Pleasant Beach High School. Cali left town for college but found herself missing one thing, the salty air of her small little beach town. Once returning home and graduating from Monmouth University, Cali continued her career in the restaurant industry going on to become a General Manager at a shore town classic known as Surf Taco. Cali’s mother, Gail, has since created an eatery of her own known as The Food Shack which is located right on the Point Pleasant Beach boardwalk. Cali decided to take her managing experiences and bring them over to the family business. If it wasn’t for The Food Shack, Cali would have never met Kim, who opened her eyes to the real estate world. Barefoot took Cali under their wing and showed her what it means to be the best agent possible. When Cali is not in the office, you can find her at The Food Shack during the summer season or at the beach, enjoying that salty air she once missed so much.

DOUG BOLLINGER

Doug Bollinger grew up right over the bridge in Monmouth County and has been truly immersed in the local fabric of the Jersey Shore community. He owned and operated Strollo’s Lighthouse Italian Ice and co-owned Shore Riders Bike Rentals, both Iconic Point Pleasant Beach businesses. He has done everything in Monmouth and Ocean County from shooting independent films to tutoring special needs children. As a homeowner and faithful dog lover, Doug has built relationships with various towns throughout our beach area and strives to be in a perpetual Barefoot State of Mind. He has also worked in education for over twenty years, and is currently teaching theater and film at the Ocean County Performing Arts School, located on the Ocean County College campus.

CHRISTY CORBALLY SHENLOOGIAN

Christy Corbally Shenloogian grew up in Point Pleasant Beach and is now raising a family of her own just over the bridge in Point Pleasant Boro. She loves getting to work in the area that she knows best! Christy can often be found out for a bike ride to the beach with her husband and son.

MIKE CORBALLY

Mike raised 2 beautiful daughters in Point Pleasant Beach and is now fortunate enough to show his grandson, Liam, 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 can still be spotted being walked around town by Eli and working as a part time salesperson for Barefoot.

TRACY ATTARDO

Tracy Attardo is a Jersey Shore “lifer”. Born and raised in Point Pleasant, she currently resides in Manasquan with her husband and three children. She has a deep-rooted knowledge of the area and all it has to offer. In addition to raising a family at the Jersey Shore, Tracy has served various roles in the community, which provides valuable insight to her clients. She specializes in the ability to help families navigate through the various towns to find the perfect home based on their needs. Tracy also has planning and construction experience as a general contractor for homes in both Ocean and Monmouth counties.

THIA O'DELL

Born and raised in NJ, Thia moved to Berkeley, CA for college and opened a glassblowing business/art gallery. Always missing the east coast, she moved her family to Brooklyn, NY and started a real estate career. She became part of a new condominium development and sales team, helping with design & staging, and eventually selling the units. A few years ago, she wanted a quieter lifestyle, so she moved to Point Pleasant Beach. She designed and built her home here. Thia loves everything about real estate and is focused on customer service, truly listening to clients and giving them valid choices.

Manuela Petzold

Born & raised in Germany, Manuela Petzold spent many years in New York City working at a boutique accounting firm, but always dreamt of living near the ocean. She was jealous of her friends who lived at the beach and decided to make the leap herself after several visits that didn’t seem to last long enough. Manuela likes helping clients make their beach dreams come true while staying true to her roots by keeping the books in order for Barefoot and other Jersey shore businesses. Most importantly though, she can give you a run down of every ice cream spot along the Shore!

Brendan Tobin is a true Jersey Boy.  He grew up in Bay Head and now resides in Tinton Falls with his wife and two children.  He has experience in construction and government and was first licensed in real estate in 1984.  He has been a fireman since 1987. A true jack of all trades; if you will. 

PETE JOHNSON

Pete Johnson has lived in Brick since he was 2 years old. He spent 4 years in the Marine Corps aboard Marine One and 12 years as an operating engineer in NYC. After years of tossing the idea around, he finally got his license and joined the Barefoot family.
