Satisfied Clients and Customers are My #1 Priority.
I have years of files filled with referrals and testimonials from past buyers and sellers. Here are just a few.
Your Referrals are my #1 Source of Business and I would be honored to be YOUR TRUSTED ADVISOR.
The only thing I can say is, "I love my new place" Thanks so much for not giving up on me. I called a lot of local Realtors over the past several years, who after a time or two of showing me properties, never called me back. Although I did have a budget you continued to search for me for the past 3 years and you found me what I wanted without giving up! I am so looking forward to moving here permanently and retiring here. What would I have done without you? I will refer you to everyone I talk to here in NJ who is thinking about moving to Virginia. Thanks so much Steve
2010: Toni is the wonderful ! She not only provides the best service but when all is completed she is a caring friend who found the house of our dreams! She has the patience of Jobe and never gave up on us either...
I couldn't be more impressed with your tenacity. Its obvious to me that you earned being Realtor of the Year for so many reasons. I am looking forward to getting settled down there and escaping this rat race that I currently live in. Everything there is so clean and wonderful and the people are so friendly. I am looking forward to enjoying the River and my porch and just being able to relax and enjoy. Thanks so much. Alan T.
Toni~Thank you for sending me the properties to look at. I am looking forward to coming home to the States and buying property. I will be back from Iraq in July 2011. I know it is a long time from now until then, but thank you so much for your continued communications to me...even the fun ones that are not about Real Estate. I haven't even met you yet and already I feel like I know you. My wife sent me the pictures you provided and we are looking forward to you finding us someplace "PEACE-ful".
Toni-Thank you so much. I have called a dozen Realtors and the only one that has continued to work hard and LISTEN to what I was wanting to buy was YOU! Congratulations! You obviously stand head and shoulders above the rest for a reason. I look forward to meeting you, looking at property and writing the contracts. You are one special lady. Thanks again.
Thank you so much for showing us all those great properties. I would like you to forward this letter to your Broker. We think she should know how impressed we were with you, all the time you spent showing us properties, the care you took in making sure we were comfortable and not pushed into anything. We have been looking at real estate for a long time and many of the Agents we worked with prior to you, kind of gave up after awhile because we couldnt find exactly what we wanted. We are absolutely impressed with you, you made the entire process so much fun, you have incredible patience, we enjoyed you sharing your knowledge of the area and wanted to let you know how much we appreciated your service. I wish you worked here in Delaware so you could be our Realtor to sell our home here. Thanks so much. We look forward to staying in touch now that we are friends too.

Thank you for letting me know you are now with Mountain Sky Properties. I will be coming down next month and am looking forward to meeting you. My friend that referred me to you told me to make sure I only deal with you. I am very excited about seeing all the properties you have been sending me and can't wait to get there. After looking at real estate in Va for the past few years I have finally found a Realtor that has done more in just a few weeks than I could have hoped for. I will be staying for several days and I am not coming back to NJ until I find a place so keep the listings coming..I am ready to buy...
Just a quick note to say, "Thanks". We really had a good time looking at land with you and although we have not found what we are looking for just yet, I am excited that we are now qualified with the lender and we will be ready when you find us something that will work. We just love it there and think you are a wonderful Realtor. We look forward to seeing all the listings you send us each week. Thanks again- See you after the Holidays....
Dear Toni, We were so glad we listed our home with you. You delivered everything you told us you would and then some. Our home was advertised everywhere we looked, you continued to keep working through these very tough economic times and you are like the Energizer bunny....you just keep going and going! I know you said your work all the time, but quite honestly, I have never had a Realtor pick up their phone on a weekend...I will recommend you to everyone I know. Hey, thanks for helping us....We will come back and visit you when we are in the area again. Your truly are the real deal!

In all our dealings with Realtors over the past ten years, we have never met anyone as helpful and energetic as you have been. Without hesitation, we would highly recommend your service to anyone who is looking for an experienced, caring Realtor who cares about getting things done and doing them right! Thanks for taking such good care of us, we couldn't have done it without you!
MariLisa and Frank
Thank you so much for taking the extra effort to make our first home purchase successful. You were there guiding us through all the crucial and important steps! You really listened to what we wanted in our home and you found exactly what we were looking for - at an amazing price! If we ever outgrow this home, we'll definitely be calling you!
Dear Toni, At first I was not sure you could pull it off as I have had my properties listed with most of the Real Estate companies all over town over the past many years. I have to say, when I first met you and you explained to me about your personal Listing service I was a little doubtful, because I have heard a lot over the years and not many delivered what they said. I knew I was hiring a Realtor and not a company at that point. Then you sprung into action with your camera and your personal committment to advertising my property! I am so glad I gave you a shot at marketing my property and I was very impressed with what you did and the way you handled the whole transaction from listing to closing. The next property I buy or sell I am calling YOU again. Great Job and Thanks a lot!

Toni, Thanks for all your help in making our "dream home" a reality. We really appreciated that you went the extra mile to get us the best price for our home. You are truly a professional. And oh by the way, you have the patience of a saint!
Sandy and Shirley
Thank you so much for everything. We absolutely love our property and the views are indescribable. I had forgotten all about the fact that you donate a portion of your commissions to benefit cancer research until the card from the American Cancer Society came today. WOW! That was beautiful...I was touched by this and wanted to say thank you..I will recommend you to my friends here in Charlotte. I know when they come to visit they are going to want to stay.
Hey Toni, Thanks so much! We are finally settling in here in Fancy Gap and we don't miss NJ at all. I just moved the folder I was using to keep up with all the properties you took us to see on all those weeks we came down to look. We must have looked at 50 houses and we picked the perfect place. Thank you so much for being there for us and really having so much patience during our search. Also, I got the card from Susan G. Komen last week. That was very nice of you to make a donation. We appreciated it. I will call you to come by and pick peaches. Thanks again.

Dear Toni, I am sending a copy of this to your Broker. I am referring you to everyone I meet that even whispers a word about anything related to real estate. I can't even count how many times you called me to let me know what was going on since I listed the house with you, to all the times you came out to check on the signs, in all kinds of bad weather, to the new pictures you came out to take plus all you did on the internet to advertise the place. You are one aggressive lady and in my opinion, the hardest working Realtor I know in this town and in these times that is EXACTLY what sellers need. Thanks for all the hours you spent to help me and walk me through the process of selling my place. I appreciate it and will be telling everyone about you. You took a load off my back and I was so happy you brought a buyer that loves what I built.
Dear Toni, Where do I start? Thank you for selling our home. We had it listed with another local real estate company for the longest time and nothing happened. Thanks to you we got it listed, advertised and sold. I got the card from the American Cancer Society too. Thank you for making the donation. Its people like you that make the world a nicer place. Thanks again.
Dear Toni, Thanks for everything. It was a lot of fun looking and I am going to miss spending time with you having fun on the search for a place here in the mountains. My little home away from home is really great and I look forward to coming down more often. The views are amazing and I am very happy about the area too. There is plenty to do around here, although I didnt think there was going to be. I can't wait until I have more time to enjoy it all.
We just wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know how much we appreciated all the time you spent with us. Although we finally found a place in Tennessee, very close to Ricks family, we just had to let you know how much it meant to us for you to show us all those homes. We realize all the time, expense and effort you put in to find us something and then we didn't even buy in Virginia. You were wonderful and thank you for making us feel at home from the moment we met you. We want to keep in touch with you as we became friends during our search process and then found out you too were involved with Boy Scouts of America for many years. We hope you and your family enjoy the holidays. Thanks again for everything.

We had talked with other Realtors, but when we met Toni we knew we clicked immediately. Being from an urban as we wanted someone who was lightning fast responding to us and who worked to really understand our goals. Toni is our gal! She moves at warp speeds and stops at nothing to track down the perfect property. Her knowledge of the marketplace is beyond impressive with an in depth working database of pocket listings and homes that are only 'quietly' on the market. We know when it comes time to list our current place up there, one call to Toni and we'll be sold!
From the minute I met you I knew I was in the right place. I am so thrilled with my home here in Fries and right near the River and a nice Church too. This town is just a great place to live and when I am done working I look forward to the slow peaceful pace that this area really has. I will recommend you to my friends that will be coming here to visit me. Thanks so much. I love it here.
Thank you for helping us find a nice home here for my parents. We were not sure if they would adjust but we wanted them to be near us as they got older so we could help them and you made that happen. My mother felt so comfortable with you and you were so patient and caring with all of her questions. Thanks again for loving them as much as we do...its obvious you enjoy what you do selling real estate. My mother has some goodies she baked for you, so stop by. You won't believe what a 70 year old woman can do to a place-it looks great and she loves the kitchen.

Good Morning Toni,
Just wanted to let you know how much Laura and I enjoyed your company and getting to know you Memorial Day weekend (2012). It's easy to say we found a great Realtor, what's more important, is saying we have a friend. Your professionalism is second to none and you made us feel like we are part of the community. We are very interested in the area you showed us and are looking forward to coming back. Have a great day. Thanks Dave

With retirement in sight, my wife and I decided we would like to buy a small parcel of land near the Blue Ridge Parkway in Carroll County, Virginia. It is our dream to build a cabin in a few years and we chose the area partially due to the fact I have family roots there. I have visited the area all my life and my wife has also fallen in love with the Blue Ridge Parkway.
When we began our efforts to find a property, we quickly became frustrated. I had contacted one established realtor in the area and after no assistance, contacted a second. It became evident they were not interested in assisting us. We were small game.
After a few months, I was so frustrated I called the Chamber of Commerce in Hillsville, told them of my frustration, and asked for a recommendation. Without any hesitation, the young lady I was speaking to said, Toni McSwain. She gave me a phone number and I called Toni immediately.
Within an hour, Toni emailed me a list of properties fitting our criteria and asked that we note any we would be interested in seeing. During our discussion, I told Toni we were planning a trip there in two weeks and would like to meet with her. She set it up and two weeks later on a Saturday morning, we were in Toni's Office.
Now to this point, we had only talked over the telephone and exchanged emails but I already had my suspicions. Upon meeting her, I can now say without any hesitation that Toni McSwain is the best friend you never knew you had who happens to be a realtor on steroids. Toni McSwain also has a sixth sense.She knows what you are looking for better than you do.
In addition to the properties we had selected to visit, Toni threw us a curve ball. She found property meeting our criteria that had what I will call a "starter cabin" already established.We began our tour and stopped there first. In less than twenty minutes, my wife looked at me and I turned to Toni and said, we want it, let's go back to your office.
We soon were signing a contract and submitting our offer. We had our answer the following morning and we close the deal in August. (Not bad for a weekend trip)
For those of you who take our advice and call Toni McSwain first,you close the deal with a hug, not a handshake. Remember, I said she is the best friend you never knew you had. We look forward to our closing and know we'll get another hug. Toni McSwain is awesome and a true professional. Call her. There is a reason the local Chamber of Commerce recommends her. Awards for Realtor of the Year come to mind.

October 15, 2012 I interviewed different area realtors, and felt Toni outshined her competition. The combination of her expertise, flexibility, and confidence produced a very positive experience. Toni listened to my needs, applied her professional skills, and sold my property. Tom Vass, Charlotte, NC
October 16, 2012 We were referred to Toni by a friend and we couldn't have been more happy with our experience. We had a tough time with one deal falling through and several other setbacks with the house we wound up purchasing, but Toni was with us all the way through. She was incredibly knowledgeable about every aspect of the deal and knew the right people to call when we had issues. She has a background in construction which was invaluable while looking at older houses. We can't recommend her enough! Call her already!

Toni helped us with purchasing our first investment property. Since it was our first, we didn't have a lot of cash to put into it. Even though Toni knew her commission may not be as substantial as it would for a larger transaction, she was very dedicated to helping us find just the right property. Our first deal fell through after the home inspection was completed and yet she didn't quit on us. She is professional, moral, honest, and knowledgeable. She stays current with everything "real estate". Having dealt with a great number of real estate professionals in the region, Toni is one of the very few that I recommend.
December 2012: Toni works tirelessly and endlessly to get your property sold. She stays in contact with you and is always available for you for any questions or help you may need. She goes above and beyond in all she does and she gives 150 percent. She is absolutely the best. The Underwoods
Emma Underwood Thank you Toni for taking such good care of my cousins and for becoming their friend as well as ours. That is something that is special in its own right. You are the best.

Dear Toni, I have been looking for an agent that was willing to do whatever it took to help my wife and I find something in an area I knew absolutely nothing about. I had no idea I was going to get a package in the mail filled with tourism pamphlets, maps, helpful information to sit back and look over and enjoy from you. Everything in this packet you sent from the Blue Ridge Parkway to the Appalachian Trail and it was all right there in your area. My wife and I had no idea I was talking to someone who would go the "extra mile" to provide us with EXACTLY what we were hoping for. I cant begin to tell you how many times I sent inquiries through Zillow and noone ever called me back. I cant be sure, but I think it was about 60 seconds when I hit SEND and the next thing I knew, my phone was ringing and YOU were on the other end, responding to my request for information!!! My wife still cant get over it...I've been sending out (begging agents) to call me for months. Now that we have been looking at properties with you, we are totally convinced YOU ARE the BEST REALTOR for a reason. Thank you for everything you are doing on our behalf. We are looking forward to coming back in a few weeks and wanted to let you know how HAPPY we both are to finally have found OUR REALTOR...we cant wait to move there..hurry and find us our new home. Reginald and Vincenza K.
