Some say goodbye, I say hello

Jane O’Reilly shares how the twists and turns of life put her right on the path to Nobility
Crest, a 55+ luxury condominium community in Ocean Township.

OCEAN TOWNSHIP, NJ – She remembers the day as if it were yesterday. Jane
O’Reilly watched as the billboard went up on Route 66, showcasing a new active
adult community. That’s the moment she knew that the next chapter of her life
was destined to include Nobility Crest, a 55+ luxury condominium community in
Ocean Township.

Looking back, O’Reilly and her husband Eugene sold their 1.5-acre Wall
Township home to downsize and began renting an apartment in Neptune for
$3,000 per month. As days turned into months, the couple knew they had to find
a more sensible place to live as rental prices continued to rise. “That’s when we
saw the billboard for Nobility Crest,” said O’Reilly.

The couple immediately visited the Monmouth County community in September
2019 and put down a deposit on a Belmont home design. Unfortunately,
O’Reilly’s husband passed away in April 2020 from COVID-19, but her plans for
the future marched on.

A few months later, O’Reilly received the call that her new home at Nobility Crest
was ready to move-in. She soon closed on the home alongside her 60-year-old
son John as the co-owner. “This is one of the nicest communities that I ever
saw,” she said. “They keep the grounds beautiful. Although I just moved in, I love
it already and I know that when spring and summer comes that I will love it even

In retrospect, O’Reilly has made a lot of friends over the years and has worked in
a lot of places. Ironically, her Nobility Crest neighbor is someone she worked with
at NJ Bell in the 1970s. The duo bumped into each other and went to lunch. “We
have not seen each other in over 45 years,” O’Reilly added. “It’s a small world.”

When the weather warms up, O’Reilly will likely be found with her friend on the
sundeck chatting about yesteryear. Following a $1M redesign and renovation of
Nobility Crest’s pool and amenity area, the duo will be able to take advantage of
all that the community has to offer with a beach-entry pool, sundeck, shaded
pergolas, barbeque areas, fire pit and more. “I can sit outside on the deck or walk
over to the pool,” O’Reilly said. “I am glad that everything is so close.”

The community also showcases a low-maintenance lifestyle with access to a
4,300 sq. ft. Lifestyle Center with a fitness center, business center, lounge,
library, large multi-purpose room, media room, billiard and card rooms. Each new
building will also add either a club room with billiards, a fitness room or an all-purpose
room. For those with furry friends, a new dog park will also be
constructed onsite.

In addition to ample onsite amenities, O’Reilly loves driving to one of the exciting
shopping destinations nearby. Her favorite is Seaview Square Mall. “Marshalls,
Costco, Target, Home Goods, Home Sense… it’s all right there,” she added. “I
also love the sun and driving to the beach, which is only just a few miles away.”

For those looking to find an active adult community in the area, you don’t have to
look very far. O’Reilly says Nobility Crest really does have it all. Nobility Crest is
located at 7 Centre Street in Ocean Township. Take Route 66 to Cedar Village
Boulevard, enter “0827” on the Call Box for the salesperson to open the gate and
make a left on Centre Street. The Sales Center is now open, schedule an
appointment from 10am to 5pm daily. To learn more, please call 732-361-4982,
