Testimonials for Tony and Karen Cloninger

  • Jim and Gina Lisk

    Jim and I recently had the pleasure of working with Tony and Karen Cloninger of Cloninger Properties, Keller Williams Realty on the sale of our home. Tony was most professional in his initial market survey and assessment of our property. Karen and her team did a beautiful job of staging and photography. Their assistant, LaDonna, was extremely prompt in all details and vigilant in keeping us informed. Altogether, the sale was a very positive experience. We would highly recommend this team to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Gina Lisk

  • Carolyn and Larry Rush

    We want to thank the Cloninger Properties Team for assisting us in finding a new home in the Maiden area. Our experience with them was so beyond our expectations, it's difficult to express our gratitude enough in words.

    Our hands-on agent, Ladonna Bumgarner, was such a blessing. She gave 150% for us, walking us through each step of the process. Her communication skills were excellent, initiating calls to convey necessary information, and she never failing to return a phone call, e-mail, or text.

    Even after the closing and move-in, she was still available. We highly recommend the Cloninger Team.

    Almost two years after losing my husband to cancer, I felt it was time to sell our home and move closer to my daughter. LaDonna was our realtor when we purchased our home years ago, and I could not imagine working with anyone else. While I expected a great experience with LaDonna, I was very pleasantly surprised with how Cloninger Properties went above and beyond to ensure that my home was presented in the best manner possible.

    The staff at Cloninger Properties walked me step-by-step through the process, from staging my home, to photography (which included drone aerial views), open houses, advertising, all the way down to finding a way to replace glass in a discontinued door. Any obstacle that came up, the team was readily available to address it.

    On a daily basis, LaDonna patiently answered all my questions, often more then once, never making me feel like a burden or that I was just another job. I truly trusted her and Cloninger Properties to take care of me and to make decisions in my best interest. It was such a comfort knowing that I had someone in my corner making sure that I was taken care of. I just cannot thank LaDonna and Cloninger Properties enough.

    As a real estate attorney, I have the opportunity to work with and interact with multiple real estate agents and their teams on a daily basis. That means I interact with THOUSANDS of realtors a year. The most rewarding part of my job is to conduct a closing for a buyer or seller who is extremely satisfied with the job their agent has done. I can tell you honestly, I have yet to meet a client (either a buyer or a seller) who has not been happy with Tony's service. He is the most professional agent I work with. He truly cares about his buyers/sellers and that shows in how much he gives to each and every client.

    I respect Tony for many reasons, but one of things I admire most about him, he treats everyone of his client alike, whether you are buying a $2.5 million dollar lake front home or a $120,000.00 starter home. His knowledge may be the only attribute that overshadows his service-oriented approach. He knows the business, knows the area, and knows how to make a real estate transaction run as smoothly as possible. When I know I have an upcoming closing and Tony's name shows up as the agent, I know I will be dealing with folks that have been well-cared for and represented by one of the best, if not *the* best agents in the area.

    I would highly recommend Tony to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Lake Normal area (Denver, Cornelius, etc.). You will not find a more knowledgeable, respected, client-services-oriented agent in the area or perhaps in all of Charlotte and the surrounding areas. The Cloninger Properties Team have the buying/selling process so fine tuned that you cannot go wrong with using them. To sum up my review, if my family moved down here from Michigan, Tony would be the man I would refer them all to.

    I have been working with Cloninger Properties professionally since 2012 as an Accredited Home Staging Professional on their team. When it comes to working with residential real estate brokers and REALTORS, they are top-tier. Their marketing approach sets them apart from many other teams and agents I know. They use and provide highly skilled vendors to their clients including but not limited to stagers, photographers, measurers and floor plans, drone technology, and social media marketing and internet technology. If anyone is looking to buy or sell a home, I would highly recommend Cloninger Properties.

  • Cindi Meeler

    Selling a house is very stressful. Tony and his team are excellent to partner with during the process. From the first meeting through closing, every detail was handled with a very high level of care. They are experts in their field, and true to their word..they get the job done. In addition, the team is fun...which helped alleviate the stress! Highly recommend Cloninger Properties!

  • Tim Killian

    Tony Cloninger is second to none when it comes to knowledge and expertise. He went out of his way to help us from the moment he listed our property until the final signatures at closing. The whole Cloninger Properties Team was great!

  • Joe Weaver and Lauren Davis

    As we looked at potential homes, I could tell Tony had my best interest in mind. I would definitely work with Tony again and would recommend him to friends and family in the area. LaDonna, Tony's assistant, was also very helpful and responded immediately whenever I had questions or needed assistance.

  • Brittany Grubb

    I am very thankful to have had Karen Cloninger as my first real estate agent. I am twenty-four years old and had no idea what buying a home was going to be like. I was very excited, but so nervous at the same time. Karen and the Cloninger Properties Team made it seem so easy. They walked me through the process, step-by-step, and always answered any questions, explaining in full detail. Thanks to Karen, buying a house has been one of my greatest memories. She took lots of pictures of me and my new house. We even took a few selfies! The most memorable thing about my house is that Karen helped build it. Not only is she a real estate agent, but she is a volunteer for Habitat for Humanity. Another great fact about my house is that my house helped build houses in Guatemala. Karen has a heart of gold and takes pride in her work where ever she goes. I can't thank her enough for all that she has done for me. I would definitely recommend her to you as a realtor.
