Meet the team
Our Core Values
You, your family and your home are our top priority. When selecting a real estate firm to represent you and your existing or future home, you shouldn’t feel like just another number. We treat each client with the respect and attention you should expect from your realtor and ensure that we familiarize ourselves with everything that makes your home buying or selling needs unique.
Navigating the buying and selling process is easy with our expertise on your side. In the real estate business, experience does matter. That’s why our team is comprised of individuals who understand the ins and outs of buying and selling homes, luxury property, condos and lofts as well as facilitating senior relocation. From short sales and foreclosures to investment property purchases and relocations, we each focus on our core competencies and have experience with even the most complex realty challenges.
We don’t just make promises – we keep them. Honesty, integrity and loyalty are at the core of each relationship we build with our clients, vendors and strategic partners. More importantly, we mean what we say and are committed to meeting your expectations throughout every stage of the home buying or selling process. We strive to make each client’s customer experience memorable for all the right reasons.
Sometimes, “who you know” really can make all the difference. Throughout our years in business, we’ve aligned ourselves with vendors and industry professionals who can help make your realty experience seamless. Unlike many brokers, we don’t accept gifts, gratuities, rebates or marketing fees in exchange for our recommendation. Instead, we require they offer reasonably priced goods and services, be experts in their fields and deliver superior service to every client.
An enjoyable experience begins with Realtors who care
The whole is greater than the sum of its parts … but these parts of our team are pretty terrific! We expect nothing less than the best from our team … and so should you. Whether you participate in the home buying or selling process just once in your life or a dozen times, we want you to remember your experience for all the right reasons. That’s why we’ve built a team of talented professionals focused on making the transaction as easy and convenient as possible. Any time you need us we’re just a phone call or email away.

Tony has done it all – home remodeling, rehabbing, flipping, and rental properties. His years of experience is a valuable resource when it comes to knowing what to repair, what to remodel, and what to resolve during the inspection process. He knows houses and can guide you through what is needed to get your home sold.
Buying or selling a home can seem complicated, but with Tony on your team, it will go smoothly. The Home Spot Team once had a seller’s home with peeling paint that wouldn’t pass FHA inspection; Tony went right out with his paint sprayer, and before long, the home sold. There are very few things that Tony has not seen in a house, and no one will give you a more honest home appraisal than Tony.
Tony’s philosophy for rehab investment is reflected in our own – if you are going to spend a dollar, you need a return of 2 to 3 dollars when you are preparing a home for sale.
