Dear Toni, I've written this recommendation of your work to share with other LinkedIn users.
Details of the Recommendation: "I highly recommend Toni to anyone looking for real estate in the Westchester area.
Toni is able to understand what you need/want in a house and bring you opportunities in the market. She presents options that help you refine what you are looking for in a house and the options that you may not have thought about. Her knowledge of the listings available and communities saves you time and money in looking for the right house.
Toni has helped me and my family to find our homes over the past years. I recommend her to any of my friends who are interested in moving into the Westchester area.

We met Toni at an open house over 2 years ago. During our house hunt, Toni has been very patient and accommodating working around our schedule at all times. The reason we finally decided to work with Toni is her professionalism and lack of pushiness when we saw houses we obviously had no interest in purchasing. The e-mail updates she sent us were very accurately narrowed down to the type, style, and location of homes we were interested in. When it came down to making an offer on Topland, Toni was available 24/7 and was very honest, speedy and informative throughout the entire process. We will recommend her at any opportunity.
We were referred to Toni and Terri from a friend. We would recommend them to everyone. They spent time listening to our needs and found our dream home. They know so much about the market and marketing conditions. They helped us through the process, it was a fun experience. We can’t say enough about them.
I was very satisfied with Toni she was professional, prompt, and well prepared. She was honest and trustworthy. She is amazing with keeping in touch by phone, e-mail and even text. I would absolutely recommend her to my family and friends. Toni gave exceptional service and is a very good listener and is easy going. She is not pushy. I would highly recommend her.
Toni exceeded my expectations in all aspects of the buying process. She was professional and knowledgeable about the market. Toni was always prompt and prepared for our appointments. We had fun looking at places together. She is honest and trustworthy. She keeps in touch with me on a regular basis. I would recommend her to all my friends and family.
"We hired Toni to sell our home in 2005. She worked with us to set the house up for presentation, prepared the marketing materials and advised well on how to achieve the best price for current market conditions. While market conditions do change, we are sure that Toni's expertise is always current and used to serve her clients well. We would hire her again if the situation presents itself."

When the housing bubble burst, she had the right strategy to price our house right and get it sold in a reasonable time. All through the process she was professional and cheerful. We never once doubted that our house would sell. If I were buying or selling today, Toni would be who I'd call.” May 21, 2012

Toni was so helpful when we purchased our house. She spent time with us explaining the process for buying a home. We must have looked at 50 houses before making a decision. She never missed a beat and told us about every house in our price range and showed us all of them. She was always available when we wanted to look. We have referred Toni to our family and friends.
