RENTAL MANAGER/ SETTLEMENT COORDINATOR
With over 14 + years of Resort Real Estate experience in Avalon, Stone Harbor and the surrounding area, Dot brings to The Hugh Merkle TEAM a wealth of real estate experience plus professional and local knowledge in sales, rentals, investment real estate and office management.
Born Dorothy Anne Connelly at Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital in Camden, New Jersey, Dot grew up in Stratford, NJ and graduated from Paul VI High School. During her childhood, Dot’s family vacationed in Avalon and eventually purchased a family home in the 70’s. Dot and her siblings spent their summers working on the island, and Dot eventually gave in to the pull of the island and moved here permanently in 1982 after graduating from Elizabethtown College with a BS Degree in Business Administration and a Minor in Management. She enjoyed raising her four children (Stephen, Maureen, Gregory, and Timothy) on even Mile Island.
In 2001, Dot turned her attention to Real Estate, getting her New Jersey Real Estate License and later her Broker’s License. Dot’s Letters of Recommendation that first introduced her to Hugh describe Dot as very organized, hardworking, enthusiastic, dedicated, smart, positive, friendly and a top performing professional who really enjoys helping people achieve their vacation and real estate goals. In the short time Dot has been with The Hugh Merkle Team, we have discovered that Dot is all the above and so much more. Dot is a quality person and a true professional!
