"Our sale was not easy for many reasons, and personally difficult because 409 Union was our wonderful and loving home, for most of our lifetime. Upon meeting Toniann, I felt strongly that she would have the integrity that would be important for us throughout this process. Now, I wouldn’t be able to express all the heartfelt gratitude to her for everything she has done to make our sale a seamless process. She went over and above for us in many ways, and she has great contacts to make things happen when needed. Toni always remained sensitive and caring to our needs, with the patience to explain things as many times as it took for understanding. She is very generous. No one does what she does and that is what sets her apart from others. Toniann is a great person and a great business lady. We will always look forward to recommending her." - PattyAnn Morgera, Seller | 409 Union Street, Carroll Gardens | 03/20

"Toni is articulate and experienced. We were quickly impressed with the pride and passion in her work style. She has a strong knowledge of the business which protected us as her clients. She was responsive, respectful, and kind with us -- yet she was a formidable defender on our behalf when it was required. Toni is an influential businesswoman, and a complete pleasure to work with." -Kelly G., Seller | 291 Union Street, Carroll Gardens | 12/19

"Toni is a genius when it comes to staging and we sold for much more than I thought I could ever get. Had I known how well she would rearrange and fix up my apartment, I may have never moved! She managed every aspect on her own while I was already moved across the country. From doormen to moving companies to painting, cleaning, design, co-op board -- I mean everything. I did not have to do a thing. I signed her agreement and cashed my check. I am grateful she was my agent and I would recommend her to anybody."-David F., Seller | 111 Hicks Street, Brooklyn Heights | 01/17

"We were very fortunate to have ToniAnn on our team. She made our lives easier because she knew just what we needed before we knew we needed it. She proved that time and again with her knowledge of construction and the local market. Every time we viewed a property she would perform a methodical inspection, looking for signs of problems and commenting on the quality of the construction, foundation, finishes, appliances, etc. She protected us from overpaying and led us through multiple rounds of negotiations to get to the price and financing that suited us best. She was always available for us and our many questions. Her professionalism, mentorship, knowledge, honesty, and hard work ethic are much respected and greatly appreciated. ToniAnn is a true professional, bright, ambitious, articulate, and incredibly patient."- Susan Zeller, Buyer | Brooklyn Heights | 06/16

"I can't say enough about ToniAnn’s professional and true caring nature. She has this sense of calm trustworthiness that made us feel secure through the many twists of our complicated sale. She solved difficult problems for us and was always thoughtful and considerate. She really makes things happen. Great effort! She is an exceptional broker and special person."- Estelle Crosby, Seller | 164 Ainslie Street, Williamsburg | 08/16

"Toni is a real miracle worker. It was hard to believe everything would be completed on time there was so much to do, but somehow she did it all! She took care of everything. Cheers and many thanks!"- Alex O., Buyer | Carroll Gardens | 06/15

Prior to real estate, ToniAnn studied hospitality management at New York University and worked for some of the city's top hotels, catering to an international and celebrity clientele with the utmost care and discretion.
