Showed home in 2013 in Point Pleasant, Newport, TN 37821.
I have known Tony for years and wouldn't trust anyone else. He will shoot straight with you and make sure you not only find the right place but get it at the right price. My wife really liked the first place we viewed and there was nothing stopping us from purchasing it but I had a few concerns with some work that needed to be done on it. Tony confirmed my issues and we walked away. He could've easily just eased my mind and made the sale but he didn't. We are still searching but looking back on that place it was the right decision and kept us from over paying and probably going over our total price limit also.
We have been working with Tony to buy a home and have found him to be totally professionally, personable, and well acquainted with the Jefferson and Seveir counties. I would highly recommend him as your agent.
Did not respond to my inquiry in South Knoxville, TN 37920.
We called to check on a home and the call was never returned. I called days later again and he wasn't helpful. He didnt seem to want our business. We just wanted to know if a home was still pending and if it fell through we wanted to know. It's by our home we are going to sell and by the pictures online it would be perfect. He said we get about 70 calls a day like this so I said never mind to leaving my number. Heck he could have took my number and threw it away and I would have felt better about that even. Why is it so hard to find a decent person to work with???

I am very sorry you feel this way. I could have taken your number and thrown it away making you feel better. I am a professional and was trying to provide you with a website and information to help yourself. I have a high volume of property under contract and a high volume of listings. Combine this volume together and it equals about 70 phone calls a day. When these properties go under contract it can take six or seven weeks to fall apart, This is why I was providing a website for you to check daily. I am human and did not want you to miss out, due to my potential oversight THANK YOU
