    Tonya is a real(ty) dynamo! She and her professional team work tirelessly and effectively to provide the best possible home buying/selling experience.  Tonya possesses such vast knowledge of the housing industry, current home valuations, local market trends, etc. We really appreciated the market-targeted price point she suggested for listing our home and how quickly it sold, not to mention the 8% premium over listing that we received!  Tonya has fantastic response times.

  • Sharon K.
    "Selling a home you built and have lived in for almost two decades can be an emotional undertaking. This team's knowledge, expertise, and experience came in handy throughout the process. They were always responsive and ready with an answer (or a listening ear) to help us through the process. When negotiations got a little bogged down, they moved heaven and earth to make the sale happen. Everything worked out well in the end for -- and I was so happy to have them on my side of it all. I would suggest that if you are the least bit concerned about your sale, use a professional. And be sure that if you can't use this team, you find someone EXACTLY like them."
