Sandra “Sandi” Messina


Licensed in 1988, Sandi has spent her career working in various aspects of New Jersey real estate. From new home sales, property management, land development, and new construction – she brings a wealth of knowledge and years of experience to each transaction she handles. Her in-depth understanding of LBI municipalities, flood zones, and home resale and construction requirements is an important yet, often overlooked, a strength that is extremely beneficial to have in a real estate agent.   

She has been recognized as a top performer at Berkshire Hathaway, Zack Shore REALTORS®, as well as the recipient of several sales awards. However for Sandi, her job isn’t about public recognition, it’s about providing an unparalleled level of service to each client she works with and always keeping her client’s best interests front and center at all times. 

Sandi is also an active member of the LBI community and has served on the Brant Beach Yacht Club membership committee for six years. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her children and grandchildren, traveling with her husband Sal, and relaxing on the beautiful beaches of LBI.
