Down the Shore has always been Long Beach Island to Alison Bowden, three generations of her family and her late husband, Jack Poling. Her most cherished and happiest memories were created here: learning to swim and sail at the Haven Beach Club where her father served as president, lifeguarding and teaching swimming there, clambakes on the beach, bodysurfing in the ocean, going to surfing movies at the Club, LBI Foundation and Beach Haven firehouse and meeting her childhood sweetheart; the filmmaker of those flicks, whom she married here. LBI is a place where memories are made.
Although life took her away to California and the east coast of Florida; it was the lure of Long Beach Island that called her home. It was time to help others discover their seashore bliss and so Alison became licensed and joined Better Homes Real Estate. Her resourcefulness, capability to listen intensely and attention to detail allow her the flexibility to address the unique needs of each of her clients.
Winding down from a busy work day; Alison can usually be found biking, walking the beach or swimming in the ocean. She also enjoys playing pickleball and mahjong, taking Pilates classes and volunteering at the Surflight Theatre and the LBI Garden Club.
