Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $100K in South Bend, IN.
Toni helped us buy a home a little over a year ago. What stood out most to us was the amount of time and attention she gave to our search. She would answer our messages at all hours of the night and was always prompt in providing us with lists of suggestions for homes to visit when we requested them. In the end, we found a home with which we are very happy, and we are glad to have chosen Toni as our agent. We feel that the entire process of buying a home was quite painless on account of Toni's efforts.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 in South Bend, IN.
Toni was our realtor when we bought a home last month. All around it was the best experience I could hope for. I would not hesitate to recommend Toni to anyone. She guided us through the whole process. It was seamless.

I felt that Toni really understood what we were looking for and got our sense of style. Based on homes we liked, she was able to recommend others. She never showed us homes that were outside of our budget or pushed us in any particular direction. However, when it seemed like we might buy the first house we saw, she encouraged us to look at others. I'm glad we did because I like the house we have now much more than the first we looked at.

Once we found the home we wanted, she advised us on the loan process itself and helped us negotiate a deal with the sellers. She arranged our inspection and was able to recommend a very good insurance agent when ours quoted us very high.

If I ever buy another home, Toni would be my first pick for realtor.

Bought a Condo home in 2012 in South Bend, IN.
Toni helped me buy a place in the late spring/early summer of 2012. I was moving here from out of state, and she accommodated my schedule on 2 trips to South Bend, putting in long hours on one of my weekend trips. I am a graduate student at Notre Dame, so my price point for houses wasn't very high, but Toni was still as dedicated and hardworking as if I was buying an expensive house out in Granger. It was clear to me that Toni put in lots of time and effort in helping me. She was always prepared when we viewed houses and she worked with me for hours during the offer-writing process. She also facilitated all the negotiations and even did the inspection on my behalf when I had not yet moved to Indiana. Toni was also very knowledgeable about the neighborhoods near campus, knowing what areas were safest, which would be easiest to resell later, etc. Toni came recommended by a friend and she more than delivered. I had a completely positive experience working with her.

Bought a home in 2002.
Toni was our agent when we purchased our home in 2002. We were first time buyers and I was initially impressed by her "buyers only" setup. While she had solid knowledge of the area, that was about the only thing she did well. She seemed uncertain, unprofessional, and wishy-washy, especially when dealing with the other real estate agent. We ended up significantly overpaying, partly because she didn't negotiate on our behalf very well, and partly because she seemed unable to provide any real substantial advice or guidance. For example, when there were some issues with the house inspection, and we asked whether it would be better to look elsewhere since we weren't in a hurry. She pushed us to keep moving forward--in all likelihood because she wanted her commission--which ended up being a terrible decision and not in our best interests. That house has been one disaster after another. The same thing happened with price negotiations--she was a weak negotiator, and we paid a good bit more than the house was worth, all because she was eager to close the deal (and at the highest possible price, of course, for the sake of her commission).

For those who are reading good reviews, I'd think twice about using her services. She seems like a nice enough person, but was a terrible agent and did not have our best interests in mind.

This review totally defies every ethic and moral I hold myself and my business reputation to. I am not sure who wrote this or why, as I have never spoken to this person regarding a home purchased 10 years ago, or any issues or problems with the home. Seems to me if a problem existed, someone would have called me to discuss and provide me the opportunity to rectify, even if it was 10 years ago. My reputation is very important and my work ethic and professionalism is evident in the 24 other reviews. If this is truly a previous client, I am sorry you felt the need to place a negatve review rather than ever discuss your problem with me even once over the last 10 years. I can't be everything to everyone, but I certainly do my very best to make things right if someone is unhappy. I have 16 years worth of happy clients that would agree.

Bought a home in 2010.
I had fired two agents before joining up with Toni. I was very impressed with how hard she fought to protect my interests and to get me the house of my dreams. It was a very lengthy process because we were dealing with a foreclosure, but she made it so easy. All I had to do was read and sign. She did all of the legwork, stayed on top of everything, and made sure everyone on the seller's end stayed on top of things too. I can't thank Toni enough for how quick and hard she worked on this deal.
