“Tonya was amazingly awesome to work with through the buying process. If I had any questions she had the answer or got back to me with the answer I needed quickly. She was nice and courteous with everyone involved in the process which, made it quick and simple to complete everything through closing. If anyone were to ask me who I would trust if I needed a realtor I would recommend Tonya in a heartbeat.”

Amazingly awesome

“Tonja was a rockstar. She dealt with an extremely difficult seller and helped us every step of the way. Our last home purchase was 20 years ago and a lot had changed. She was there to help and answer all of our questions. Highly recommended.”

A rockstar agent

“Honestly, Tonja is a dream to work with. She was a saint. She answered all of my silly questions as a first time home buyer and shared all her knowledge regarding basements, foundations and any details she’s learned along the way while we were reviewing houses! This was so helpful as we didn’t know what to look for, she was there pointing out things that we need to keep an eye out on/for. I cannot express how grateful I am for her!! If we ever buy a home again, I hope I can work with her!”
