"I’m glad I found Tony to help me buy a home. He walked me through the pros and cons of every move in my home buying journey so that I could make great choices. In fact, we worked together during a very competitive time in the market where multiple bids were the norm, something I hadn’t expected. Tony was a straight shooter and very patient over the multi-month home search, consistently keeping me updated on market conditions. We gamed out the bidding strategy, something that gave me complete confidence when the moment of truth arrived. The result? I won the home I wanted. The final stages of the process – the inspection, escrow, etc. – were equally smooth. With Tony, it was total ‘white glove’ service every step of the way!" - Luke S.
One of the most important considerations for me when choosing any consultant is that they operate ethically and that my interests are represented above all else. Tony fits the bill in spades. The service was impeccable, too. During my home search, I loved that he continually checked in with me, provided useful market information, and comps for homes that piqued my interest. In fact, many luxury homes are put on the market way overpriced – part of a frequently-played game that goes on in Los Angeles. Tony kept the guardrails on. It turns out, the list price on the gorgeous home I bought started unrealistically high, but Tony's skilled negotiation, tact, patience, and data-driven approach got me the house I wanted at a price that was in-line with reality! - Rachelle C.
"I would recommend to anybody I know buying and selling real estate in Los Angeles. Tony is the definition of professional. Having him in your corner is a huge asset. Knowledgeable, every step of the way. Great to work with!" - Jeff K.
"At the beginning of our home search, we met with some agents from one of the large national portals. We were taking our time to find the perfect property and found their follow-up lacking. We continued searching and stumbled upon RubyHome’s website, which was easy to navigate to find new construction homes that piqued our interest. When we made a showing request, we met with Tony knew right away he would be our agent. Over the ensuing months, Tony consistently provided useful market information, feedback on the properties we'd toured together, and he posed good questions that helped us whittle down our choices. Never once did we feel any pressure or weird vibes – everything Tony did was centered upon helping us make a good decision. This was not our first home purchase, but Tony made sure to remind us during escrow of what we could expect and answer questions that popped up along the way. All told, this was a fantastic experience!" - Jim & Jue L.
