Kevin was an awesome during the whole experience of purchasing my home in Crofton, Md. Kevin was responsive, he explained the process thoroughly, and even kept contact with me after the purchase to see how things were going. I'd highly recommend using Kevin for buying or selling real estate in Maryland.
Kevin Toston went out of his way to accommodate my unusual and urgent needs. He demonstrated extreme competency in his field and provided creative solutions when asked for his recommendations. To top it all off, he happens to be sincerely kind and easy to talk to-highest recommendations from me!
We connected, but it did not work out. Looking in Chesapeake Ranch Estates-Drum Point, Lusby, MD 20657
I unfortunately didn't get the chance to work along side Kevin but I didn't want to write a review for buyers especially first time.I wanted to take the time to say that Kevin was so helpful and knowledgeable in helping me to understand so much. I would strongly recommend him and if we are looking in the future closer to the areas he works in. He will be my number 1 choice. Thank you again Kevin for being so patient with me and answering all my questions!The only option was to say he didn't provide me a service but he did he helped me to understand what all comes with buy a home:)
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 in Upper Marlboro, MD.
When searching for my new home I periodically visited the sites for the major Real Estate companies in our area. Without a bonafide, professional Realtor the process became long, frustrating and tedious.
During my search I used four Realtors before I finally found someone I felt that was flexible and competent enough for me to work with. The key is to find a good Realtor who will work for you and not the other
way around. Also, do not sign any contracts that will prevent you from separating from your Realtor and using someone else if you feel your needs are not being met.
I highly recommend using KEVIN TOSTON. Kevin helped me find exactly what I wanted and what I was looking for in one night! I am not kidding. I had been searching for 6 weeks prior to meeting him. Our initial meeting was for him to get a better feel for me, my needs, and what I was looking for.
It was late and I had my toddler son with me. Kevin was kind enough to
drive me to a fast-food place so I could grab a quick snack for my son
until we could get home. After finding out more about me and what I was looking for he asked if he could run a quick search.
The search produced the home that I decided to purchase. It had been on the market for less than one day and it fit my search criteria. Although, it was a tad late he called the Seller to ask if we could view the house that night. We did and I decided to purchase. His efforts didn't stop there. Kevin wrote the contract and had me sign that night!
His persistence and dedication enabled me to buy the home that I had been searching long and hard for. The next morning the house had numerous visits and contracts. The Seller remembered me and my Realtor from the night before and choose my contract (not to mention my contract was the first to be presented).
I would HIGHLY recommend Kevin Toston. Not only is he a professional; he is skilled, dedicated, funny, personable and really down to earth. Even my toddler son likes him and that's an accomplishment in itself!
Sold a Single Family home in 2011 in Gaithersburg, MD.
Words cannot express my deepest gratitude and warmest thanks to Kevin Toston for successfully negotiating the sell of my house in Gaithersburg. Based on a referral, I sought his professional advice in selling a house that was probably a few months from foreclosure.
I was totally unprepared for our first meeting. Before he signed me on as a client, he listened to my story of betrayal. He presented me with a detailed analysis of recent and pending sales of homes in the neighborhood. He addressed all my questions and concerns. He took me on as a client when many would have look at my dire situation, and walked away, but not Kevin.
Time and time again the buyers wanted to include another addendum. He researched all the disadvantages; determined the effect on the selling price, and then addressed the situation most appropriately. Most of all, he would say, “don’t worry Ms. Barksdale, everything will be all right”
We went to settlement in less than 30 days and he saved me from possible financial ruin. Kevin's devotion and hard work are proven assets to what I know will be long and rewarding career. I stepped out on “faith”, and was truly blessed that an “Angel” came to my rescue. He is a young man with talent and a business mind far beyond his age.
I look forward to working with him again to procure my next house.

Kevin Toston was very diligent and meticulous in his efforts in representing me in the purchase of my first home. I really thank him for his sincerity and conscientiousness when walking me through and teaching me the “ropes.” His above-and-beyond attitude AND his patience were greatly appreciated.
Kevin, thank you, thank you, and thank you again. You’ve raised niceness to a whole new level!
Bought a Townhouse home in 2012 in Gaithersburg, MD.
I just wanted to take the time out to sing the praises of Realtor Extraordinaire and new- found friend, Kevin Toston. Mr. Toston’s approach to realty is refreshing. He is honest and diligent when it comes to helping his clients find a home. I must admit that I am not the easiest person to help find a home, but Mr. Toston hung in there with me and took the time to teach me things that made me a better consumer. In fact, I am almost certain that I could probably take an entry- level realtors exam and pass with flying colors thanks to his “crash course” in buying a home.
Mr. Toston also understands the mortgage side of the business. He was able to tell me things the mortgage company I was dealing with neglected or did not know to tell me. I could have made several costly mistakes but I am glad I had Kevin on my side.
Little things mean so much, for instance, the only time I had to look for a home was after work and I would always be hungry, Kevin took notice of this and always had snacks to offer. HOW THOUGHTFUL!!!!
There are so many stories I could go into that would clearly display the thoughtfulness and integrity of this man, but I wanted to write a letter and not a novel. I do want to say that it was because of him I received $2,000 at closing because he represented me so well and fought for my rights as a buyer.
I go out of my way to tell my friends, colleagues and family about Kevin. As long as he will have me as I client, I will be buying and selling property with this dynamo by my side, besides who else will my husband have “who is better, Redskins or Raiders” arguments with? Keep buying those Twizzlers, Kevin we will be doing this again.
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $175K in Glenn Dale, MD.
We have bought a few homes in our lifetime, and we never got the attention that Kevin Toston gave us. It was important to us that we worked with a realtor that was knowledgeable, but most of all, we wanted a realtor that was responsive. In this market of big investors scooping up all the good deals, we needed a relator that would act fast. We spent a few months with Kevin looking for the perfect home, at the perfect price. Kevin never pressured us and he always looked out for our best interest. We ended up choosing a home that was a short sale. As fast as a good deal can wisp away into the wind, Kevin was able to submit the contract quickly and make the right calls to insure we were in the bidding. Our bid was accepted. However, the transaction became beastly between the buyer and seller. Kevin fought for us all the way, continuing to look out for our best interest. We have never seen a realtor work like that. We have our new home now and are very happy. Anyone looking to buy or sell a home, there is no doubt that Kevin will be in your corner all the way. Many thanks, the Lisa's
Bought a Single Family home in 2008 in Upper Marlboro, MD.
I worked directly with Kevin Toston to find my home. Previous to Mr. Toston I had 3 different Realtors. All 3 seemed to struggle with honoring my requests. They showed me properties that were out of my price range, too small, or just simply not what I was seeking. My experience with working with Mr.Toston was the complete opposite.
I found Mr.Toston's information online, called him and we met the next evening. That very same evening he asked me if I had time to look at a home that he thought would be perfect for me. We drove to the home and I fell in love. It was everything that I wanted and less expensive than I could imagine! Mr.Toston put the contract on the home the next morning. I recommend Mr.Toston to everyone. He is a consumate professional who listens to his client and has the ability to make things happen quickly. Additionally, he is very personable and has an inordinate amount of knowledge about the local real estate market. I found working with him to be smooth and swift. Lastly, I have also worked with Mr.Toston on finding investment properties. His expertise and knowledge in that area was invaluable.
We wanted to take a moment to commend Kevin Toston on the wonderful job he did selling our home. He was professional from the very first day he began working with us.
We appreciated Kevin’s honesty, integrity, and willingness to work with us through all of the difficulties we had with our home, (and we had plenty of difficulties). Another agent probably would have given up with all of the unforeseen problems that arose during the sales process, but Kevin worked with us each and every day, sometimes into the night to see us to the finish line and for that, we are thankful.
We highly recommend using Kevin Toston as your agent. I have already sung our praises to our friends here. I am his biggest cheerleader.
