Get to know Justin Toney

Justin, I appreciate your patience- for someone who is a thinker like me, it was good that I did not get pushed to make emotional decisions. I did not feel uncomfortable sharing my opinions with you and talking about issues around what I wanted in a home helped narrow down my requirements on what was important. I also liked that you took the initiative if you hadn't heard from me in a while because you knew I was getting tired.  Thanks for helping us find our home.

When I first starting working with Justin I was not sure whether I was going to rent or purchase a property.  We looked at a few rentals and then I decided I wanted to go ahead and purchase.  I appreciated the fact that Justin never tried to pressure me into buying but rather it was a decision that I made based on the fact that the available rentals were not appealing to me.

Although I was leaning towards moving into the James River high school district I wanted to keep my options open.  To make things easier Justin created four separate property searches for me, one for each school district I was considering.  I found this to be very helpful. 

I really appreciated Justin's no pressure guidance throughout the process of my home purchase.  He asked checking questions of each property we looked at.  These questions helped me determine what was most important.  This may sound like a logical process, but I have bought many houses in the past and never really had a realtor truly try to determine what I liked.  The question and answer process enabled Justin to point out both positive and negatives things about other properties we would look at.  Actually he became more critical of features in some homes then myself.  He wanted to make sure that I was getting the best house on the market that met my criteria.  In less then two weeks we had viewed the properties that were of interest to me and wrote an offer which was accepted on a property which I felt best suited my needs.

When the appraisal came back lower then the contract price and I got a little worried but Justin reassured me that my contract was ok.  During the counter process to the low appraisal, I actually became worried I might lose the home and Justin pointed out that we where in the driver's seat and worst case the contract would default to the pre-counter price.  I was impressed with how well Justin handled this part of the transaction....I walked away from that saying to myself, "Justin is actually a steady and tough negotiator under pressure" 

I know from first hand experience that Justin is someone who will look after and act in your best interests. For that reason alone I recommend him to others as the agent they should use.

Justin Toney was an excellent realtor.  During the house-hunting phase, he was very thorough in his preparations and was very knowledgeable when touring homes.  I ended up selecting a great house, but one with a seller who turned out to be unusually difficult.  Justin was very patient, and spent hours upon hours dealing with this seller and the negotiations over the house inspection and the credits for defects.  In the end, I got a good deal and ended up with a great house.

I CALLED  YOU  TO   RENT  MY  HOUSE  AND  WAS  VERY  WORRIED   HOW  IT  IS  GOING   TO   HAPPEN  IN  LESS  THAN  ONE MONTH AND WITH  THE  LOW  BUDGET  THAT I  HAD.   THE HOUSE  HAD  TO  BE  PAINTED  AND THE CARPET  HAD  TO  BE  REPLACED.  I   DID  NOT  KNOW  WHERE  TO  GO  TO  GET A GOOD QUALITY  BUT  NOT A VERY EXPENSIVE  ONE.  YOU  ALWAYS  CAME  UP WITH  THE  BEST  AND  THE  WISEST   SOLUTIONS.

YOU  GATHERED    GROUP  OF  PEOPLE  THAT  EACH  HAD  DIFFERENT  TALENT  TOO,  EVEN  THOUGH   THEY  WERE  PAINTERS.  EVEN  WASHING  AND  DETAILING   MY  CAR  IN  CASE  I   HAPPEN  TO  SELL  IT.  YOU  EVEN  HAD  GOOD  FRIENDS  TO  HELP  ME.  THAT   SHOWS  SUCH  GOOD A  PERSON  YOU  ARE  THAT  PEOPLE  ARE   WILLING  TO  GO  TO  DISTANCE  FOR  YOU.

AS  HARD  AS  HARD  WORK  AS  IT  WAS  YOU  TWO   DID  IT.  WHEN  IT  WAS  DONE  AND  YOU  WERE  ALL   SWEATING  AND  EXHAUSTED I  SCREAMED  THIS  IS  THE  BEST  DAY  OF  MY  LIFE  BECAUSE  I  WAS  SO  OVER WHELMED   AND  DEPRESSED   FOR  TWO   YEARS  THAT WHO  IS  GOING  TO  HELP  ME  THAT  I  PUT  OFF   RENTING  MY HOUSE  FOR  TWO  YEARS.

YOU  SHOULD  BE  PROUD  OF  YOURSELF  YOUR  COMPANY  PROBABLY  KNOWS IT   BY  NOW  AND ARE PROUD  TO  HAVE  YOU  AS  ONE  OF  THEIR  STAFF.  CONGRATULATIONS  TO    YOUR  PARENTS  TO  RAISE  A  SON  THAT  IS  A  GENTLEMAN  AND  TALENTED  AND  SO  CREATIVE AND   SUCCESSFUL  IN  HIS  CAREER. I  HAVE  UTMOST  RESPECT  FOR  YOU.  THESE  WERE  JUST  AN  EXAMPLE  OF  WHAT  YOU  DID  FOR  ME.  I  LEAVE  THE  DESCRIPTION  OF  YOUR  CHARACTER  AND  HOW  KIND  AND  COMPASSIONATE  YOU   ARE.  YOU  DID  NOT  CARE  ABOUT  YOUR   BENEFIT  BUT  THOUGHT  ABOUT  YOUR  CLIENT FIRST.
