What our clients say

Guido Stracke

We employed Tonya as our Buyers Advocate – and then after that was successful, she transitioned effortlessly into our Sellers Advocate … and achieved maximum results in both functions!

As the Buyers Advocate, her negotiation skills were second to none – and resulted in significant savings (subsequently used in the purchase of new furniture & put-aside for future “post-epidemic” travel).

We found Tonya to be professional, responsive and straight forward/honest, but also (for us) amazingly Successful!

Meredith Windust

Tonya was a wonderful help in finding me an apartment in this extremely difficult time. She was professional but friendly and I really enjoyed the experience of finding the right apartment. She listened to exactly what I required and found the perfect apartment for me that ticked all the boxes.

Tonya was the reason that I was successful in purchasing my ideal home and if it wasn’t for her help I would probably have had to wait until next year due to Covid 19.I would highly recommend her!

Ray Swann

Tonya is an outstanding advocate. The role is a tricky one: you need a rare mix of being able to have the ‘soft skills’ of empathy and an understanding what the client wants but also the ‘hard skills’ of negotiation.

Tonya is simply amazing and does both of these things with ease! She also has an ability to help you clarify what is important which means you really can focus on what is valuable. This only strengthens your negotiating position.
