I have bought and sold properties for years and Tony Dowdy is by far the best realtor that I have ever worked with. I looked for three years for a nice residence. I had two agents who would send me listings or just send me to run down places because they thought they were "a good buy." Even though I was clear on what I wanted, their interest was more in the sale than what I wanted. I met Tony at an open house and it was clear that he was not only knowledgeable about the area he serves, but he is truly interested in what works for the client. The properties that he selected for me were lovely and within my cost range. He never pushed but answered pointed questions I had to ensure that it was indeed what I wanted. Within two weeks I was in the place of my dreams and the transaction was quick. Tony did not stop there, whenever I needed a recommendation for something, he always had somebody who could do the job. He responds immediately to emails and/or phone calls. I cannot say enough about how he turned a dismal house hunt into an incredibly great experience. I highly recommend him!

Our company has engaged Tony's services numerous times. For the most part the properties were either in distress or in areas where maximizing the sale price would have been difficult. However, Tony's is very methodical and approaches each listing as if it were his only one. He truly understands the real estate market and how to market each property. Because of this each listing brought multiple offers and each sale was above the asking price.
I highly recommend Tony for all your real estate needs.

From the time we first met Tony up until the final sale, he was always there for us. He worked very hard for us with open houses and many showings. We sold our condo in just two weeks with three offers. He helped us with all the paperwork and answered all of our many questions. It was like working with someone we had known for years. We would highly recommend Tony to anyone buying or selling.

Tony actually had a buyer for my home in 2 days! It was a quick and thorough process and I was so happy to have gotten the price I did. Many homes in my area did not sell due to poor pricing, and Tony was very spot on with regard to what price we needed to list at to get a quick sale and qualified buyer. His knowledge of details made the difference, and he was very clear on what I needed to do and not do to make the process successful. He worked up to the very end to be sure we met all the requirements, and negotiated with the buyer to be sure escrow closed in a timely manner. I could not be more pleased.

Tony is a pleasure to work with (a rarity in real estate) which, combined with his expertise and skill in all facets of the transaction process make him a really top-notch RE professional. He is always courteous, goes out of his way to do everything required, has great suggestions and ideas on staging, pricing, negotiating, and endless energy - he's always available and never loses his cool or his positive, upbeat demeanor. He also knows the areas he sells or buys in really well, which gives him a strong ability to put prices right and to hold firm when necessary. He's so nice I expected that he would be "nice" and not firm in negotiations but not the case at all -- he holds firm in all the right places but is also practical and advises when to adjust - you get such confidence in him that you trust his recommendations implicitly.

Tony, I just wanted to take the opportunity to express my gratitude for all your assistance throughout our sales process. Your local real estate knowledge and attention to detail was invaluable from price targeting, through offer, inspection and the closing processes. In an ever changing local real estate environment I found that having you ‘on my side’ was a tremendous advantage and I am thankful to have worked with you. Best regards, -Craig

Tony was fantastic. As first time home-buyers, we were very uninformed about the process and uncertain about what we were looking for. Tony helped us understand everything involved in buying a home and was able to figure out what we wanted. Due to a difficult market and our very picky search radius, Tony had to put up with us for the better part of a year. He was great the whole time and always maintained that we would find the place that was right for us. When we finally found the property that was right for us, it happened to be listed by VERY difficult sellers. They made the process extraordinary stressful for everyone involved, yet Tony handled it with professionalism and expertise.

Tony is one of the best of best. I got to know him when I wanted to buy my house in Pasadena in 2004. After 2 agents that couldn't find what I'm looking for I found Tony and he found exactly what I was looking for. He sold my house I had 8 years in less than a month and found me a new place. I recommend Tony to anyone that needs a good friend, agent and hassle free dream house. Thank you Tony for everything.

Tony was very objective and thorough in
describing the steps and what he would do in helping us to sell our home in
2013. Everything went as planned. He arranged for necessary repairs to be made.
We had an open house a few days after listing and received multiple offers
immediately. The counter offer process ended within 24 hours.
We highly recommend Tony.

I first met Tony when he was helping my brothers family buy their home. I joined in on a walk through one day and was impressed with Tony's honesty and immediate knowledge on what the seller and buyer were responsible for doing. When my fiancee and I decided to buy a home, we talked to a couple realtor friends first, and then reached out to Tony. It was immediately clear that Tony's knowledge and expertise was far better than our other realtors options. From there, Tony was always available to meet and view homes that worked within our demanding work schedules. We trusted his opinions on how to make offers on homes we were interested in and he even helped us find a great lender. When one of our offers finally reached escrow, Tony made sure that we weren't taken advantage of by the sellers agent and negotiated repair costs that saved us close to $15,000. If you want someone who is a complete professional, knows the right people to make things happen fast, and will give you his honest opinion, Tony is the guy to talk to!
