I mentioned the boardwalk in Bradley Beach is small, but it does extend about a mile from end to end. Bradley DOES allow you to bike on the boards, as long as it’s in the morning before 10:00 am! You’ll often see people sitting and relaxing or reading at the Fifth Avenue Gazebo. Steal some quiet time and enjoy the ocean breeze. At the beachfront, everyone enjoys our clean, well-maintained beaches and the security of our well-trained and experienced lifeguards. Everyone looks forward to listening to the nightly music at the main gazebo. With so much to do, the beachfront attracts visitors from sunrise to sunset and beyond. Bradley Beach has a ton of events on the boardwalk during the summer. One of the most popular by far is the Lobster Fest. Keep an eye out for that one!
Bradley Beach NJ is the kind of down-to-earth beach town that everyone can love. It is a summer escape all year round. Main Street, is just 6 blocks from the beach. Walk or drive the lovely tree-lined streets heading directly to the beach, where you will find our beautiful boardwalk and oceanfront.

Hi Everyone. My name is Cori Dunphy and I am a full-time real estate agent living in, loving, and serving the fabulous county of Monmouth, New Jersey, and specializing in Marlboro / Morganville Township. I love working with buyers and sellers all around our fabulous county. I have been living in Monmouth County for 48 years and selling Real Estate for close to 18 years! I’m the wife to an elementary school principal and simply an amazing guy, and the mom to 2 Fabulous boys, Max and Jake.
I have loved real estate for as long as I can remember. I didn’t originally start in this profession. After graduating from the University of Rhode Island I worked in the Men’s Garment District for years, and then owned a textile company with my dad! I knew the traveling would have to stop when I wanted to start a family, so FINALLY, I got to dive right into the career I always knew I loved! If I’m not out and about selling real estate you can find me on a soccer field. I am a ⚽ soccer mom ⚽, in every sense of the word!
I love traveling, anything beach-related, sports and just having a good time with family and friends. I look forward to helping you along your real estate journey!
