Tonia Kleinsmith is one of the best Realtors I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. I presently live in the Greater San Francisco Bay Area, but have certainly been contemplating slowing down to live in the Central Coast and Counties like San Luis Obispo or Santa Barbara. With my professional experience as a Trial Lawyer for over 25 years when I had my own practice, I had developed a rather keen sense of the quality of the professional services one comes to expect from a Real Estate Broker, especially if the price of the property nears or exceeds High 6 & low 7 figures. Tonia patiently showed my Fiancee & I several single-family residences in these areas & her knowledge of the several areas which might suit us was quite remarkable. I was impressed. In addition, another remarkable feature about her surfaced, to wit: her absolute lack of fatigue despite constant motion, counseling and related activities with no discernible breaks.
While these efforts were not then rewarded, the situation with my Fiancee changed and we decided to purchase a Condominium for her and defer the SFR for us until I could get squared away with my Real Property in the City of Berkeley. Negotiations were started but then, got bogged down & a true stalemate appeared eminent, at which point I intervened and advise Tonia to make a Counter Officer with new money. She did so very well as I expected her to do and within 48 hrs, as I recall, an agreement was reached. Escrow has since closed and My Fiancee now owns her own Condo in a wonderful location in Santa Maria.
Tonia and her outstanding staff made all of their resources available to us to move on the purchase after an agreement was reached and it was those resources and their timeliness with which I was impressed. As I recall, no stone was left unturned. Completely thorough, highly professional and congenial throughout. There is no doubt, when my Fiancee & I purchase a SFR in the Central Coast soon, Tonia will be our Broker for certain. And, I intend to refer my colleagues to her who may be similarly situated.
Thank you for this opportunity to express the appreciation of My Fiancee and I of Tonia Kleinsmith, a first rate Real Estate Professional.
Sincerely Martin Nakahara & Fiancee
