Toni was a pivotal part of our home buying process, as she personally invested her time in assisting us as first time home buyers. We were confident in Toni to lead us in the right direction and trusted her recommendations. She consistently proved her dedication to us as clients and shared her knowledge in the industry by consulting us thoroughly during negotiations, the inspection, and all the way through closing. We could count on Toni to make sure everyone was aligned and that we were making the right decision for us. We are so thankful to have worked with Toni and she helped us secure a place we are happy to call home. As first time home buyers, we were highly satisfied with the level of service that Toni provided. She clearly outlined action items and next steps, and always completed them in a timely manner. She made herself available to all of our questions and provided excellent consultation. If you are looking for an agent, we would recommend Toni again and again."

Stacy & James Platt seller closing 3/22/17 My husband and I listed our house with Toni and we could not be happier with our decision. When we bought our first home, she was actually the seller’s realtor. We liked her a lot then and knew if we ever sold our house we would choose her to list it. Well a little over 5 years later we were moving out of state and needed to sell our house. We knew exactly who to contact. She has a lot of experience and is extremely knowledgeable. She helped us through every step of the process. Toni was very easy to get a hold of any time we needed to ask questions. We sold our house in 3 weeks and could not be more thankful! We highly recommend Toni for buying and selling a home! Thank you Toni! James and Stacy Platt
Closed January 7, 2015 Buyer's, Karen & Hugo Lopez We were property virgins, therefore we went into this experience with very little knowledge of all that would entail to purchase a home.Toni Curtin was in one word “perfection”, she was understanding and kind. Always available for any questions we had, and we had plenty! She went above and beyond what a realtor needs to do. There was a point there in the process, when we thought the house wasn’t going to work out, at the last minute we came to an agreement with the seller, there wasn’t much time left ; Toni went out of her way to ensure all that needed to be done would be done before the “due diligence period” was to expire. She is just lovely to work with, kind and understanding to your needs. She gets my vote for Gwinnett Realtor of the year if there is such a thing! Karen & Hugo

My experience with Toni Curtin was so easy, by that I mean she was always on point, interested, always listening to my concerns and needs. Always willing to offer ideas and suggestions to any questions I asked about. Toni always kept me informed of any offers and what was happening in the market. Toni is smart and very knowledge about her job. I had 100 percent confidence in her. As a homeowner I was proud to have her on my team. She is very competent and an awesome realtor and now a great friend. You have a home for sale, she will get it done. Kay Phelps
Buyer closing, September 12, 2014, Anne & Mike Ball , Buford, Georgia Toni Curtin is an absolutely amazing realtor! She went above and beyond to help us find a beautiful home in the short time frame we had. From the time I contacted her, within a couple of hours, she had many homes for us to look at – she listened to everything we said and found us the perfect home! She was with us each and every step of the way. Without her dedication, determination and knowledge of the market, we would have been homeless! I cannot express enough how much Toni’s expertise worked to our advantage! I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor who gets things done!!!
Seller & Buyer Closing April 2014 Dear Toni, I want to thank you for the awesome experience we had with you as our realtor. You took the time and attention and went above and beyond to assist us with the sale of our home and the purchase of our new home. When things got complicated at our new home with the septic tank you took the time to assist me going over the paperwork and getting me to the right people to get the problem resolved. Thank you for all you did. When it comes to real estate you are our only choice. We look forward to working with you again when the time comes and will recommend you highly to all our friends and family. Best Regards, Merly & Jayson Mejia

We'd like to express our sincerest gratitude for everything that you've done for us. It's tough to impress us, and you have blown away our expectations. It's so refreshing to work with someone who is so honest, on top of her game, and willing to go above and beyond for her clients.
You've been such a tremendous help with the purchase of our new home and the sale of our existing home, and we can't thank you enough!
First of all, we'd like to thank you fore the countless hours (and gas!) you spent driving us to find the right home. We'll never forget the time we got stuck in the I-85 gridlock...gotta love metro Atlanta! :-) It was nice to feel we had someone looking out for us, rather then someone trying to push us into something that wasn't right for us. You were incredibly kind and patient as we went back and forth, agonizing over the pros and cons of all the properties we saw. Once we finally found what we wanted you were great at helping us negotiate a good price, etc. with the builder. We are so pleased with the end result: a fantastic home for our children.
We'd also like to thank you for all of your help selling Meridian. We feel like you helped us get the best buyers we could have hoped for. We're still amazed at how quickly it sold, especially since we listed at the holiday season. We're sure it had a lot to do with your expertise on proper pricing and staging! And of course, we're extemely grateful that you were in our corner as all the drama unfolded after the inspection. We appreciated your helping for contractors and your reassurance when we were stressed out about the deal.
To top it off, you didn't disappear after we went binging on both properties. We loved your "checking in" emails. You have a gift for making people feel like they're your only clients, but we're sure you've got plenty of clients keeping you busy!!!
It has been such a delight to work with you and to get to know you; honestly, we feel like we've gained a friend, and we hate to say goodbye! We'll definitely refer you to anyone who's looking for the best realtor around. RE/MAX is lucky to have you, and we're blessed to have been able to work with you.
Thanks again for everything, Kimberly & Scott Simmons

We came to Brook Forest 9 years ago, and with Toni's help, we bought our first house together. When it came time to sell it, there was no question that we were going to turn to Toni. She is experienced, professional, personable, and an excellent advisor and communicator. Toni has been in the business of real estate for a long time, and her knowledge and personal service has been invaluable to us. I would highly recommend Toni Curtin for your real estate needs.

Seller closed June 29, 2013 I have known Toni for many years as both a neighbor and a friend, so, when we were deciding to sell our house, she was our go-to realtor. When we began the whole process, we were not sure if the market was "hot", or if our house was even desirable, but Toni put an end to all of our doubts. With her expertise in the local area and market, she was able to say with confidence that the time was right and there was someone out there who would love our home. Very quickly and with the flair of an expert Toni put together a listing with details and photos. Throughout the entire process, she kept us well informed, and made sure that our home and my family were respected. Toni also offered great advice, and assisted us with each and every detail of the sale. She is well known and greatly respected in the local marketplace and has relationships with many professionals that helped us prepare our home for the final sale. In one short week of being on the market, we received 2 offers and within the next month the entire process was complete with the sale of our home to a lovely couple. Working with Toni was a pleasure and we would highly recommend her to anyone who is thinking of selling their house.
Thank you, Toni, for your tender loving care in the sale of our home!

Thank you so much for all your hard work and diligence in the amazingly quick sale of my home. I am still in shock by how smoothly everything went! Because of your in-depth knowledge and expertise, you were able to precisely pinpoint the market value of my home. It sold for exactly what you said it should sell for. You were excellent and thorough in answering any questions I had. I also greatly appreciate that you immediately pursued and followed up on each and every interest in my home. Through your hard work, I had a solid offer on my home literally, in a matter of days -- something I never imagined could happen. Thereafter, you continued to follow up on each and every detail to ensure that there would be no problems with it closing as scheduled. All and all, it could not have gone better start to end. On top of it all, you were very personable and friendly.
THANKS! Dan Poplawski

Jim and I would like to thank you for all of your hard work in selling our house. Even though I've known you for many years I never knew how much time and effort you put into selling a house. You are very professional and went above and beyond. Throughout the process you were with us every step of the way. The special touches such as your newsletter, lamenated notes placed around the house mentioning various upgrades were greatly appreciated.
I think you are quite knowledgeable regarding the sell of a home and anyone would be lucky to have you as their agent.

I have purchased numerous properties, and consequently dealt with many real estate agents (realtors?) over the years. Never have I had such a personal, one-on-one experience as I did with Toni Curtin. In fact she has spoiled me for all other agents! I'm currently selling a property in California, and, well, to say the least, no one measures up to the level of service I received from Toni. I've come to expect (thanks to her) concierge service in my real estate dealings. I'm afraid this puts most other agents at a disadvantage. I just wish she could represent me me for my California real estate needs.
Toni not only committed herself to me during the short time I had in town, she was also knowledgeable of the areas and market, and knew how to focus our time on exactly what I needed, and had the skill to negotiate the best deal I could have hoped for. When something looked a little too good, she had the experience to know to dig a little deeper, and kept me from jumping in to something that truly was too good to be true. In the end, I closed an amazing deal on a remarkable property that was quality at a great price. And I couldn't have done it without her. Without a doubt, I will be turning to Toni Curtin for all my future real estate needs.

Just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for the almost effortless sale of our home in Brook Forest. We had dreaded putting our home on the market due to the current housing market and just the general hassle of trying to sell a home. Luckily we chose you as our agent. From the first phone inquiry to the last detail of the sale, you were there for us. The paperwork was simple and quick, and your suggested selling price was spot on for the market. You came back and made suggestions on staging and curb appeal, as well as getting our house quickly listed on all the websites. You kept us informed of all inquiries with your weekly email updates, as well as phone calls and visits.
Because of your reputation in the real estate community, we quickly had other agents wanting to show our house as well. We were expecting to have our house on the market for a while as it was the end of the year, but, the third client that looked at our home made an offer, which is practically unheard of these days. You even connected the potential buyers to our HOA to ensure they could place a fence where they wanted and be in compliance with the neighborhood bylaws. The closing went smoothly, again, thanks to your extra efforts on our behalf.
And last, but not least, a special note of thanks for going way beyond the call of duty and helping us sell some of our furniture !!!!

SELLER CLOSING JULY 29, 2011 Toni is a fantastic seller's agent. We invest lots of time and research before hiring anyone for any job, especially a real estate agent. Toni was the only agent to answer the call quickly and professionally. Toni is kind, fair, courteous, and knowledgeable. She intimately knew our area and has great communication as well! However, don't let the sweet taste fool you because she is a bulldog who will fight for you on every detail. This is incredible important in the midst of negotiation. We highly recommend Toni to be your seller's agent and would easily recommend her to our family and friends. Danny & Lana Peavey
In February of 2011 we purchased a new home with the help of our Realtor, Toni Curtin. She had so much knowledge of the area and she always made us feel as if we were her top priority. We told her what we were looking for in a home and community and she listened. Also, because we have four children, we wanted to be in the best schools the area had to offer. We found everything that we were looking for thanks to Toni’s expertise. We even recommended her to our brother and sister-in-law who were moving from Florida, and they successfully closed on a brand new home in July. We would definitely recommend Toni Curtin again and again.

Curtin Call - I would do it again with Toni Curtin. I had 30 days to find a house, move to Atlanta and start a new job. And she did it !! We reviewed several lists of houses for sale, short sales and foreclosures. She taught me the pros and cons of each. We saw about 15 houses in 2 days. And we had a great time doing it. Toni is not only knowledgable of her business, but she made the time searching enjoyable. And when the deadline was on the doorstep, she was right on top of things to get the job done in time. I moved in 3 days before starting my new job, just as I had planned. I highly recommend Toni Curtin and if the need arises again, I will definitely turn to her.

September 2009 BUYER CLOSING
Toni is the BEST! She is a perfect realtor - enthusiastic, friendly, knowledgeable and diligent. We were referred to her after a horrid experience with a different realtor, and we were blown away by her. She jumped in with incredible enthusiasm - scheduling showings for the next available day. During our house hunt, she must have researched at least 60 homes for us, and she showed us over 20. We could tell that she really cared that we got the perfect house, and she would work with us until that was accomplished. Toni is an extremely knowledgeable realtor. She definitely knows her stuff! Because she knew the area so well, she could describe each subdivision, tell us about the different area schools, and point out recreation facilities close to the homes we were viewing. But most importantly, Toni listened to us. She made it a point to understand exactly what we were looking for. She truly wanted to find the right house for us. At the end of our journey, we not only found the perfect house, but we found a friend too. We highly, HIGHLY recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
Thanks, Shelley & Chris Capelle

My husband, 3 small children and myself relocated to North Georgia from Northern Virginia in October 2008. We were given Toni's name from another Re max associate. Her name was chosen because she was a top seller for re max and won many awards. It's always tough going into unknown territory, but we did with Toni and we never had a regret. She was professional, knowledgeable and treated us like friends from the first conversation. She was sensitive to the fact that we were a family with 3 young children (even offering to baby sit). She listened to what WE wanted and when we found the house of our dreams, she did everything in her power to make sure that we were heard, we were educated and we were competitive.
The house we desperately wanted, was not finished, and was about to go into foreclosure. The situation, at times, looked hopeless... but Toni always stayed positive and never gave up on trying to get us in to our dream house. She put us in touch with the builder, the property management, the superintendent. She made sure that we were kept in the loop at every step of the negotiations and with every milestone we met, she would celebrate right along with us.
We moved in to the house June 2009. It was a finished house, we bought it from the builder and got a GREAT deal. We could not be happier with our experience with Toni and I would (and have) recommend her to anyone looking within the area, new or established residents.
Thank you Toni for all that you did for us and for making a very difficult 8 months as hopeful as possible.
Tere and Monterio Woodson
Toni is a very special person to work with when selling a house. As an out-of-town owner, I knew that I could count on her to keep the process moving. When we put in upgrades to get the house ready for sale, Toni coordinated the work. Anyone who has sold a house knows that negotiating with a buyer can cause anxious moments for the seller. Toni was on top of that and she kept us informed. And she handled the last minute surprises that always seem to occur during the closing. Toni is such a pleasant person to work with and I would not hesitate to recommend her to any seller or buyer.

Hi Toni. I just read your card and wanted to say thank you again for all of your help. It was a joy to work with you. You made finding and closing on our home really easy. You are such a professional! You are really great at what you do. Remax is fortunate to have you on their team. My brother is arriving in St. Thomas at 3:30 so I have to go now because I am picking him up. By the way, is it OK for us to send you mail at the address on your Remax business card? Let me know. We have a small token of appreciation for you (smile). Also, feel free to call me anytime my friend. Thanks and have a wonderful evening.
P.S. I'll e-mail you tomorrow to let you know how the move and the wall paper removal, etc...went last Friday.
"Toni helped us find our dream house! My husband and I had been looking to buy a house and Toni made everything so easy for us. We went out a few times looking, and we ended up buying the 2nd house we looked at! It was perfect and she worked with us to make sure every important detail was covered. She worked out all the details with the seller and made the whole process relatively painless. I would recommend her services to anyone I care about!"

We really and truly want to thank you for doing such a good job on selling our home in November of 2007 under such difficult market times as well as having to contact us throughout the entire negotiation by email since we were out of the country.
We had lost faith for almost a year with a different agent but were fortunate to find you. Even though times were tough you stuck to it, finally finding the client for the house.
The one thing that we appreciated was your constant contact, letting us know how things were going practically on a daily basis.
Once again, thank you.

"I called Toni at the suggestion of a good friend. We put my house on the market in March, 2007. Toni helped me decide exactly how to “stage” the house for the best results. Then she followed up on every showing and even kept me informed about how the other houses for sale in the neighborhood were showing. When we got a firm offer, that’s when Toni’s knowledge and professionalism really came through. Since the house was approaching 20 years of age, there were a few items that came up on the inspection report that needed to be addressed. Toni spent hours contacting contractors, getting the best price, and arranging to have the work done, all of which was extremely helpful for me. The closing process on the sold house as well as the next house I bought went very smoothly thanks to Toni taking care of all details and making sure we had everything in order. It was so nice working with her; I’d recommend her anytime."
Seller & Buyer/ Louanne Barry 2008
Why Toni Curtin? I'll tell you why we chose her. As a neighbor in our same subdivision, Brook Forest, my husband and I thought there would be no one else out there who would genuinely WANT our house to sell for more than the almighty dollar reason. All agents work for their pocketbook, and who doesn't? But here was someone who we thought had a sincere REASON to WANT our house to sell. After all , her personal real estate ownership was in the same subdivision, so we figured she would work harder. She had a personal interest in this--to keep her own property value up--we concluded. We just couldn't even explore another agent. Toni just seemed to be THE ANSWER every time we discussed who to list with. What other agent, with her experience and availability, would actually see her listing sign every time she drove home and every time she left her home? We figured the constant reminder of her own listing sign would want to make her move our property just that much faster. And we couldn't have asked for any faster. My goodness. The first person that saw the property asked for a contingency, which we turned down since they didn't even have their own property on the market. Then, before we knew it, a true offer came in from someone else but we could not come to a meeting of the minds. The third offer was a charm and we had ourselves a contract in two weeks time!!!
When Toni first came over to discuss a listing with us, she made her recommendations for improvements. All of them were exactly what we were already planning except for one. There is absolutely NO doubt in my mind that that one recommendation was the one that clinched the sale. And without her expertise, we had no idea how we were going to fix it. We took her advice, only a fool wouldn't, and we did it. How can you question an expert?
We didn't and we were very pleased with her.
We'd recommend her in a second, no questions asked.

It is unbelievable to think we are officially going to be home owners. You have treated us far better than we deserve or could have ever asked for. It is unbelievable to think this bond started all those years ago through AAU basketball. We cannot repay you for the countless hours you spent helping our dreams come true. I will surely be sending anyone I know purchasing a home to you. Thanks you again and God bless.
