In the firm’s short tenure, it has received nothing but positive feedback and stellar reviews. Committed to maintaining the newest and best tools and technologies to provide excellence in service, brokers are always accountable and available with every resource at their fingertips.

She has been a successful small business owner with strong ties to the community for over 20 years through her Salon.

As a listing agent, all of Tonya’s homes have been under contract within 48 hours with the majority selling above asking price. Her focus on bringing her best to each client, whether buyer or seller, has consistently earned her five star reviews.

She has also donated a good amount of her free time over the years to volunteering at local schools, lending her talents and energy to the Living Literature program and fundraising efforts.
