Our Client Testimonials


Shawn listed the home, brought a buyer with a full price offer with in a week. The closing took place in 30 days. I couldn't be happier. I'll refer Shawn to my friends and use him again in an instant.

In the spring of 2013 we decided that a house near the ocean would make a lot of sense for our family. Our experience with Shawn Clayton and Clayton and Clayton Inc. could not have been better. He showed us numerous homes at times that fit our schedule and really helped us understand the lay of the land on the Jersey shore. We ultimately found a house that we liked, made a bid and went to contract. Many realtors would have checked out of the process at this point. Luckily for us Shawn did not operate in this fashion. We had a short closing window and many obstacles existed to closing on time. Shawn went over and above the call of duty to make sure we were able to close on time and enjoy the entire summer at the Shore. I can strongly recommend Shawn Clayton to any prospective Shore home buyers based on our experience.

My wife and I recently purchased with Shawn, from the Shawn Clayton Agency. Through out the whole process Shawn was helpful and cooperative. He made buying our new home a pleasant experience. Steve Descalzi

Shawn represented me as Executor in the sale of a magnificent beach property. He deftly and professionally handled competing bids to arrive at a price very close to asking. We were able to close the deal in a very short period of time to allow the purchasers to have the full benefit of the summer beach season. I would highly recommend Shawn.

Robert Albert

Shawn worked with us to sell a family estate home, after a long period of renovation. He was extremely helpful and got the job done smoothly without much hassle

Philip Fornaci

Shawn Clayton was an individual that I followed from the first day I built my home in Curtis Point, Mantoloking, N, 20 years ago.J. He had a strong understanding of the Barrier Island and was known for his sales and rentals After 20 years in Curtis Point it was time for a change. We contacted Shawn after investigating other realtors and as a family, it was an unanimous decision to engage Shawn as our realtor. We placed our home listing with Shawn on Saturday night and Sunday morning, we had 7 showings and one of the parties made an offer on Monday.... a bit too fast for us, but Shawn stepped right in and took charge of the situation. In an appropriate time the home was inspected and sold. As senior citizens who had no home selling experience in the last 20 years, we were happy that Shawn had this... " I'll take care of you" attitude. We are very grateful that Clayton & Clayton were a big part of our team. Now on to a better life and with new good friends in the Clayton & Clayton group.

Bob & Valerie

We have been delighted with our experience in working with Shawn. He and his wife Amy provide fantastic support, and they have deep and extensive experience with that market. For all matters large and small, Shawn is always “on duty” and working hard to move things forward. And as an extra bonus, he and Amy are wonderful people.

Art & Carole

Very professional, extensive knowledge of property values, listens and responds promptly to our questions. Overall Shawn made the whole process of selling our house very straightforward and smooth.

Christopher Kazior

We have been using Shawn Clayton for our real estate needs in Mantoloking for some time now. Shawn is the ONLY realtor we will use. He found us our “dream home” on the ocean on East Ave in Mantoloking this past summer! He sold one of my homes on Barnegate Lane in 2015. If you are looking for a realtor down the shore then look no further Shawn is your man!

Cheryl Tully

Shawn’s local knowledge of the housing market is second to none. He also has deep experience with all the right local professionals (lawyer, inspectors, builders, architects, etc.) that makes the process much easier.

Jim Sullivan

Shawn Clayton from Clayton and Clayton is by far the best. He understands what you want. He understands your needs and he works for you to accomplish your objectives. He worries about you not himself. Many real estate professionals tell you that you need to do this or that, they give you work. Shawn takes care of everything professionally with a smile so you(I) do not have to do the work. Shawn Clayton represented me when I purchased the home, when I rented the home, and when I sold the home.

Charlie Langtree

While in the early stages of looking for a waterfront property I reached out to Shawn regarding a listing he had. Shawn spent a lot of time with me that day, as well as many days in the months ahead, helping me navigate in understanding the home buying process. The time he has given me was invaluable, and his knowledge and expertise of the area allowed us to find the home of our dreams. I highly recommend Shawn for your real estate needs.

Pam Anderson

We were very happy working with Shawn in purchasing our beach house! He was very knowledgeable about the areas in which we were looking and showed us areas we wouldn't have considered on our own. He was very accommodating and flexible with our busy schedule. He referred us to our mortgage broker, flood insurance agent, and a local architect, all of whom we've chosen to do business with. We would highly recommend working with Shawn!

Julie & Walter

Our decision to initially sign with a different realtor probably cost us several hundred thousand dollars. Because this other realtor was not active in the market, our house sat until that contract expired and we were able to pick up Shawn. The delay created an impression that maybe there was something wrong with our house because it had been sitting. So Shawn started with one foot in a hole but he leveraged his impressive marketing machine to get us wide exposure and ultimately more than one offer. Don't make our mistake, go with Shawn the first time.

David Reim

Shawn was very professional and down to earth. He worked with us selling our shore home. He has a vast amount of experience, so when some issues arose, he was quick to offer advise on how to remediate them. We would highly recommend Shawn to anyone looking to buy or sell a home or property.

Robert Waller

It was an absolute pleasure to work with Shawn...He handled all of our issues with not only a professional attitude but he also made us feel very comfortable with our purchase...I would definitely use him again for any of our real estate needs...Thanks Shawn

Vincent Ferranti

After marketing our property for over two years with no results, we decided to interview several agencies in our area. We listed our property with Clayton and Clayton. Within two weeks our property was sold. Thanks to Shawn Clayton for successfully marketing our property to the right buyer.
