Anthony J. Bottone
Owner/ Broker of Record
In 1980, Anthony "Tony" Founded Bottone Realty Group, Inc. and it has been going strong since then. Even in times of poor markets and downturned economy, Bottone Realty Group has not only survived but thrived under his guidance, all while competing against the big brokerages. He has kept this company small and like a family. He prides himself on the atmosphere he created of agents that truly work together as a family to give their customers the best response and friendly and effective customer service.
After years of work experience as a computer programmer while taking night classes at Rutgers University, Tony got sales experience selling malpractice insurance, as well as leadership experience as the Owner and President of Fox and Bottone Compute Processingr Company that provided payroll systems to local companies and municipalities. Tony obtained his real estate license in 1975 and started his real estate career with a local independent company. He quickly became a top producer and in 1980 decided to open his own agency.
For the next 40 years and counting, Tony has helped countless buyers find their dream homes and sellers sell their homes. He has sold out over 15 ENTIRE developments and closed very difficult multi-million dollar commercial deals as well as selling small bungalows for much, much less. No matter the scope of the project, Tony goes "All-In". You will NEVER meet another person with more enthusiasm, determination, and stellar work ethic than Tony Bottone. His out-of-the-box thinking has helped his customers realize their dreams.
Deanna Bottone Rose, a top producing agent for 30 years, sadly passed away in 2017. She was the backbone of our agency and we all miss her dearly. Everyone who met Deanna instantly fell in love with her wit and charm, and unequivocally became her friend, whether selling or buying a home with her as their realtor.
She was our heart and soul, and we will miss her dearly. Our love for Deanna, taken from us too soon, lives in our hearts every day.
Deanna Rose was a Circle of Excellence Recipient every year for 30 years ranking her as one of the VERY top Real Estate Professionals in Monmouth Ocean Regional Realtors MLS. She closed hundreds of deals over her long and arduous career and each one was approached with a smile. But don’t let that million-dollar smile fool you, she knew how to get tough when needed and always worked night and day to achieve results for her clients.
Deanna graduated from our local high school, Middletown High School North, and Rider College in Lawrenceville, NJ. where she earned a Business Degree in Industrial Relations. Her expertise was in contract negotiations. Her personality, genuine caring, and her ability to listen, made her a natural in sales where she excelled in Real Estate, working side by side with her father and Broker of Record, Anthony J. Bottone. Since 1980, Bottone Realty has competed against the big companies and not only survived but succeeded. There is absolutely no way that could have been possible without the hard work, professionalism, and service that Deanna offered throughout the years.

My husband and I relocated from Pelham NY over 30 years ago and have never looked back! We reside in Middletown NJ and have happily raised our twin boys there. I love the outdoors and am an avid hiker and equestrian. We also enjoy the beach year round, and love to walk our dogs there off-season. As a licensed real estate agent, I specialize in in first time home buyers, relocation , or the buyers/sellers who are ready to downsize. Fifteen years of previous experience as a customer service manager has prepared me well for all the current challenges of selling real estate right down to the smallest detail. From negotiating a sales price or preparing a market analysis, to speaking with attorneys, inspectors and mortgage representatives I personally handle every part of the sales transaction with professionalism. A home is one of the largest and most important investments a person will make in their lifetime and I make sure it is handled as such. I strive to make the home buying and selling process as stress free as possible. If you are thinking of buying or selling your home , I would love the opportunity to speak with you !
