When Hurricane Sandy devastated New Jersey's shoreline in 2012, a real estate company's sign at a waterfront property was swept out to sea.

But two weeks ago, Diane Turton, Realtors, got a message they most definitely didn't expect.

It came from a resident of ... France.

You know: Paris. Eiffel Tower. Wine. Cheese. That France.

So Hannes Frank informed the real estate outfit's marketing department that its sign had washed up on the beaches of Bordeaux.

That's about a 4,000-mile trip across the Atlantic, NJ.com reported.

Perry Beneduce, manager of the company's office in Wall Township, told the outlet he knows the sign came from a particular house in Brielle because that residence was the only Diane Turton waterfront listing at the time.

The reaction from the company based in Point Pleasant Beach? It "truly proves that Diane Turton, Realtors is a global real estate company."

KYW-TV reported that Frank intends on sending the sign back so the real-estate outfit can frame it.
