Introducing Tony Cornner

Real Estate Agent with CENTURY 21 Mike D. Bono and Company

I'm told that I should introduce myself! But, before I do that, I want to thank Derenda Grubb for her persistance in getting me to sign on with Active Rain and for the nice things she said about me in her introduction.

I attended McNeese State University and have been married for 22 years. My wife, Sandra, and I have two teenage boys, Justin and Jarren.

Before obtaining my real estate license, I owned and operated a service company. My knowledge and experience in the construction industry has been of significant benefit to my clients. I became a licensed real estate agent in January, 2000.

I was awarded Rookie of the Year in sales volume and production of the Southwest Louisiana Association of REALTORS® my first year in real estate. I attained my broker's license in 2006 and am an associate broker with CENTURY 21 Mike D. Bono and Co. CENTURY 21 has awarded me the coveted Centurian Award as well as the Quality Service Award.

My experience includes both residential and commercial real estate. With my experience in the construction industry, I am qualified to manage new construction from start to completion, including experience with pre-build sales.

As a member of the Southwest Louisiana Association of REALTORS Multiple Listing Service (MLS), my buyers and sellers enjoy the benefits of auto-notification.

I serve as a state director of our state association, Louisiana REALTORS.

Welcome to Active Rain Tony... have fun in the game. Your web site is awesome by the way. Who did it?

We joined last November and have found that the Rainmaker outside blog combined with Localism have worked well for us…. getting us better page placement on Google searches within neighborhoods. Worth checking out. 

It is also a good idea to use a lot of pictures in your post from the area you cover to get and hold people's attention...they shy away from reading blocks of text.

A side benefit of AR is learning from other folks’s social media creativity and making friends for future referrals. Here is a good place to start: Learning  to use Active Rain  

Have great success this year,

Steve and Jan

Steve and Jan, thanks for going to To answer your question, it was built and maintained by Mary Kay Hopkins, a local real estate broker who helps several agents/firms. Like Derenda, she also encouraged me to join Active Rain.
