Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $250K in Saint James City, FL.
Toni did a wonderful job of listening to what we wanted and showing us what we were looking for. Then she took care of all the local things, inspection, etc for us since we were living in another city.

Thank you so much Mary for your review. It was a sheer pleasure working with you. I know I made a great new friend!
Toni is a Real Estate Professional who has an wide experience in the Real Estate arena. Since moving relocating to Fort Myers, she has assisted me in both commercial and residential property purchase. Very knowledgeable realtor, who actually listened to our many needs and requests and found the perfect location and property for us at the right price. Couldn't be happier with her professional, attentive manners and friendly attitude. At no time did we feel pressured into making a decision. Even after the purchase of the property she still remains in contact to assure the everything is Ok. I would highly recommend Toni Phillips to anyone looking for a property
Toni helped me find and buy 2 pieces of land on Pine Island. She was a joy to work with. I have since built a new home an live fulltime on P.I. I' building a duplex rental on one od the parcels Toni helped me locate. She is knowedgable and welcoming and will be a big part of my memories of my first impressions of this new area.
Incidentally I found other investment propertiees on Zillow in the past 5 years. I regularly use your sitee to track market values and recomend you to others.
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $350K in Saint James City, FL.
Toni is great! We were very lucky to have Toni Phillips to guide us through the process of finding and buying the home we've been dreaming about for a long time. We put an offer on a home on the very last day of our vacation and Toni helped us through the entire purchase process long distance. Since we weren't able to be in Florida for the closing, the paperwork at the title company was done via overnight mail and Toni did the final walkthrough at the house to ensure everything closed as expected. She goes above and beyond for her clients. She is the best!
Very much a professional and yet a human being. We enjoyed her company and the opportunities she offered us.
She was with us for the first home we looked at here and the last and did our walk thru after the purchase. In the walk thru she helped us negotiate with a person who was not mentally sound and made the encounter beneficial for all concerned.
We first met Toni when we called on a listing of hers that we found in a Pine Island real estate book. We made a last minute phone, we wanted to see the property that day, Toni wiggled an appointment or two around, called the present tenant, and got us into the property that very same day, which was greatly appreciated because one of us had to get on a plane back to Kansas later that afternoon. Well, that property did not work out and we can not believe that Toni stuck with us for over a year, during this year long process Toni sent us listings via e-mail that she knew fit our wants/needs and she often called us when something of interest would pop up on the market. Once the right property came available, Toni had to move fast and make many calls just to get us into see the very popular listing, we signed a contract that day. After signing the contract we had to get back to Kansas and Toni took it form there, to make things more interesting this was a short sale, and we had heard that short sales can be difficult ,even though we were back in Kansas Toni always had our questions/concerns answered promptly, she kept the whole purchasing process fun and basically stress free. We are now happy owners of our own Island home. Toni was even gracious enough to appear on HGTV's Beachfront Bargin Hunt as our realtor when our property got picked for an episode, like we said she always kept things fun. We are looking forward to working with Toni on our next Florida purchase.
Toni is very personable and easy to talk to. She is also very experienced and knowledgeable about Island (and beyond) real estate. she was patient with us and was still characteristically cheerful and caring when one of our house hunts "went nowhere". I consider Toni a friend.
Toni Phillips was the perfect agent to work with as we searched for a vacation home on Pine Island in Florida this past April 2014. Toni listened to our needs. We were purchasing a vacation home on Pine Island and we were unfamiliar with the area, we live in Connecticut. We were looking for a 2 or 3 bedroom home with 2 bathrooms near the water. We found our dream home the first day we viewed properties with Toni due to all the homework she did in advance of our visit. We looked at six homes on the island. They all fit the criteria we were asking for. Toni knew her way around Pine Island and her clear communication skills and fast response to all our questions and concerns made the experience stress free. Toni guided us through all aspects of the purchase and we truly did not know what we needed in relation to insurance and inspections to complete this type of purchase. Follow up is important to us and Toni was never unreachable. This is our fifth time purchasing a home and I must say this was the best agent to work with. We had high expectations of our agent and Toni did not disappoint!
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 in North Fort Myers, FL.
I first meet Toni when I bought a home in Florida. She was the listing agent and it was a short sale. Everything was done right the first time and the sale went smoothly. Then I was re-selling the home I had bought 4 years earlier and immediately called Toni to be my listing agent. She came to my home and evaluated it and we agreed on a selling price. She arranged an open house which was advertised online and locally and had a great turnout. I had 2 interested parties that Saturday and she was able to arrange financing information that day to the party that ended up buying it. Contract was signed 5 days later and the sale was done. There was negotiating of the selling price and both parties agreed. Very good knowledge of real estate in the area and I lived out of state and she handled all transactions for both of my real estate deals.

Thanks to you my clients. You have made me the success that I am today and I am truly appreciative. I enjoy my work because of you and will always give 100% to each and every one of you.
Tonis was professional, personal, and knowledgeable; all that we could ask for in the process of finding and buying our home. I would recommend her without reservation to anyone looking for a home. Both my wife and I were extremely pleased with all aspects of our relationship with Toni. If we do this again, we will certainly work with her to complete another home purchase.
