About Oceanside Realty


Oceanside Realty was founded by John Franzoni in 1987. John is a full-time resident of Surf City, and Long Beach Island has always been a part of John’s life, beginning with childhood family vacations and the days when he was a lifeguard back in the 1960’s. Built on the foundation of John’s experience and extensive knowledge of LBI and its surrounding communities, we’ve created an agency that’s unsurpassed when it comes to local real estate knowledge.

We’re proud of continuing to be an independent hometown agency with national and global reach, providing services to a client base that encompasses buyers, sellers, and renters locally, nationally and internationally. Our agents have roots in the community, and we take pride in community involvement. Oceanside Realty’s staff of dedicated agents take great care to understand what our customers’ needs are, translating that into the perfect place for their LBI experience. We choose to focus on the local markets we are experts in, and to provide the individualized, personal attention that Oceanside Realty has become known for in the last 30 years. Our two offices in Surf City and Harvey Cedars provide convenient locations from which we are able to provide unparalleled service. Oceanside’s sales and rental inventories include every imaginable type of property, from multi-million dollar oceanfront and bayfront homes to one-bedroom condos, oceanside and bayside beach cottages, lagoonfront homes, vacant land, new construction, commercial and investment properties. When it comes to selling, buying or renting properties on LBI….just ask us for our expert advice!


LBI is…18 miles of fun, sun, surf, and sand…and thats just the beginning! A barrier island, LBI is poised along the NJ coast “six miles at sea,” creating a unique opportunity for enjoyment of both the ocean and bay, and all that’s in between. LBI’s six municipalities encompass a multitude of diverse areas, each with its own personality – needless to say there’s a spot for everyone on the Island. LBI is also home to a diverse mix of flora and fauna and some of the most unique eco-systems on the East Coast.

Long Beach Island is a fantastic place to spend time with family and friends and has something to offer everyone. Between the sugar-sand beaches, boating, sailing, fishing, surfing, great restaurants and other activities, there are a million and one fun things to do!
