Dear Mr. Stanley,
I wanted to take a long moment to convey how remarkably happy I have been throughout the last six-plus months of doing business with Stanley Real Estate and Investment and most notably the work done with and by Tony and Tasha Vruvides.
I have served as Executor of the estate of my late father since his passing in October of 2018. Included in the estate, indeed at the core of it, was a home in Granite Bay. I live in coastal Massachusetts and have owned only one house in my life. I live in that house and have done so for more than 35 years. My experience in selling a house is stunningly limited and yet I found myself being asked to sell a house three thousand miles away and representing not only my interests but those of two siblings who actually live in the Sacramento area. I knew I would need help, informed answers to endless questions and more than a little personal attention.
And, I knew this was going to be a long, complicated process. I asked several people for recommendations and the names of Tony and Tasha Vruvides came up more than once. I looked them up and did due diligence on both the Vruvides and that of the Stanley firm.
Stanley Real Estate and Investment seemed, and turned out to be, a “right sized” and thoughtfully built company with extensive experience in all the places I needed experience. The firm is not too small to have a specialized office staff capable of a wide range of tasking; nor, so large for me to be buried under the weight of too many clients with too few folks holding up that weight. The size and capacity of Stanley Real Estate and Investment turned out to be ideally suited. Congratulations on building such a strong, client-focused firm.
But, I must say the key reason for this letter is to communicate how please I have been with the work and support of Tony and Tasha Vruvides. My relationship with them spanned six months and included the need to sort a remarkably complicated and unanticipated set of issues. There was one constant through those six months . . . Tony and Tasha Vruvides had my back. Tony, in particular was a force of nature helping me grapple with the range of roles to which I needed to respond. If there was an issue that was possible it became an issue in reality. Tony, has been an absolute pillar of support. He was always available, always positive and always went well beyond what anyone should expect. He says he and Tasha are “old school” . . . they place service to client first and foremost – even when the client is thousands of miles away and three time zones distant. I think we did more business before the sun was up in California than we did during normal office hours
In short, I cannot be happier with work that Tony and Tasha Vruvides did on my behalf. To say that they went beyond what you should expect would be an understatement beyond reason. And, in the end, the house sold on the weekend of the Open House. Through these months, I made new friends and gained an abiding respect for a what gifted and determined team of real estate folk can bring to the challenges of selling a home.
Dear Tony and Tasha - You put your knowledge and years of experience as Realtors, when I put my house for sale. Not only was the sale fast but you also treated me like family and answered my phone calls every time I called. Thank you so much.
WOW!!!! My wife and I finally decided to sell our house and asked a friend of ours if they recommended anyone in the Sacramento area. They absolutely recommended Tony and Tasha for the job and they were not wrong. Talk about a “Dream Team”! From day one, it was an incredible experience. Everyone involved was amazingly helpful and made the process a no-brainer. We are out of state right now and Tony and Tasha took care of everything. Their vast experience and knowledge of the market, along with a reliable network of support professionals, helped us receive the maximum price in the shortest time possible. Daily updates and availability kept us informed and made our decision making process a breeze. Anyone buying or selling a home in the Sacramento area should DEFINITELY call Vruvides Group first!
Tony is AMAZING! Hands down the best real estate agent ever! As first time home buyers Tony walked us through the entire process. I would text him non stop all day and he never got upset or bothered, he would usually respond back to my texts within seconds. We still keep in contact with Tony and his wife Tasha regularly. If you are looking for an honest hardworking real estate agents look no further and contact Tony ASAP, he is the man!!!!!
My Mom just recently sold her house which her and my father have owned since 1999. It was their first home ever owned. My father passed away in November of 2016. We had a family meeting and decided that selling the house was her best option. That's when we decided to meet with Tony and Tasha. I had already bought my home through Tony a few years ago. So I already knew the effort, time, and way to make someone feel like an individual that Tony would bring to the table. Tony and Tasha did not disappoint. They knew how sensitive this matter was for my Mom and our family. They were never pushy nor did they ever rush things to their convenience. On the contrary, they took their time, listened to my Mom, and always kept us both up to date. You truly have a pair of assets in Tony and Tasha. Great workers and even greater people. I can't thank them enough for all the work they did, and most importantly, making my Mom feel like number one.
Thank you Tony, You're the best. I want you to know that if i need any real estate service in the future you will be my man. God bless you and your family!
He was great to work, he was always there to help, packing boxes or vacuuming anything needed to make the process easy and enjoyable. He also found our new house which made an easy move.
First time home buyer. Tony was nothing short of amazing. He was super responsive to my numerous emails and texts and always made sure I was kept abreast during the whole process. If I had to do it all over again Tony would definitely be my realtor.
I know Tony for a long time as he sold one of my properties in Elk Grove 2 years ago excellent service very knowledgeable very friendly he went the extra mile to provide the services I highly recommend Tony to all my friends and family.
My wife Renee and I would like to convey what a pleasure it was to work with Tony and Tasha Vruvides on selling our home. Tony and Tasha Vruvides worked together as the perfect team to make the real estate selling process as stress free and profitable as possible. They both display energy, passion, expertise, and unquestionable integrity. Not only did they devise a plan and execute, they were always available. The constant reassurance that they provided on a seemingly daily basis eased our anxiety which allowed us to make informed decisions without feeling panicked or rushed. They remained committed to us throughout the process—very often going above and beyond their prescribed role. I highly recommend team Vruvides to all my friends and family who have real estate needs.
Tony and Tasha did an overall great job selling our house in Elk Grove. They paid attention to detail and gave us timely feedback on how things were progressing, were always concerned that we get the best deal.
We would like to take a moment to share our thoughts with you regarding the recent sell of our home in Elk Grove and the outstanding service we received from Tony and Tasha Vruvides. Selling our home was something we discussed a few times. We never took any steps to make it happen, afraid of the daunting process and reluctant to go through with it because we loved our home so much.Out of nowhere, Tony and Tasha knocked on our door and introduced themselves with kind hearts and reassuring smiles. And that was it. From that moment on, Tony and Tasha took care of everything and eased our anxiety about selling our home.We were impressed by their professionalism, honesty, and compassion toward us while we let go of our family home, a home with so many good memories. They kept our best interests center stage, despite some challenges during the process. They are an amazing team and we wholeheartedly recommend Tony and Tasha, and your firm, to anyone considering buying or selling a home.
My husband and I could not be happier with the choice we made in choosing Tony and Tasha to be our Realtors for the sale of our home. We thought the sale of our home would be a challenge since we had to move out of state and were 3,000 miles away, but it was not a challenge at all for Tony and Tasha. They worked very hard, helped with any issue or problem that arose with urgency and expertise. They completely earned our trust, they were our advocates every step of the way. We were advised of the status of everything constantly, always receiving texts, emails, and calls from Tony and Tasha. It definitely pays to use experienced, knowledgeable Realtors like Tony and Tasha, they are the best, and we highly recommend them.
We really enjoyed working with Tony and Tasha and were glad to have them on "our side". Selling and buying a home can prove to be stressful, but knowing that Tony was always available and very quick to answer any questions (sometimes very early in the morning) helped to keep things under control and emotions in check. When the time comes again, we will definitely look them up and refer them to anyone who asks!
I wanted to let you know what an outstanding experience I had with Tony Vruvides as the agent selling my home. I say home, because it wasn't just a house to me. It was my home for 20+ years and Tony was aware it meant a lot to me and was very understanding and patient through the whole process. Tony's professionalism is superb. I couldn't have asked for a more trusting and hardworking agent. I will highly recommend Tony to any of my friends that are selling their home.
I would and will always highly recommend Tony without hesitation to anyone that is in need to either buy or sell a home. I also applaud you Mr. Stanley for having someone like Tony who is trustworthy, very informative, knowledgeable and helpful, working in your company!
A family member recommended Tony to me and he did not disappoint. Tony’s commitment to his client is incredibly impressive. He is persistent, very professional and keeps you informed every step of the way. Tony helped me understand and navigate through the mortgage system. I would definitely utilize his services again and will continue to recommend him with the utmost confidence. Thank you Tony for such amazing customer service.
I contacted Tony asking him to represent me as the buyer's agent. While working with Tony, he patiently listened to my home shopping needs and demands. He thoroughly researched and explained to me all the details about the property I was interested in. His comments and opinions were honest and sincere. Tony is an excellent communicator. He answered all my questions through text or phone very promptly. During the transaction process, Tony constantly updated me with information from the bank. Thanks for his professionalism, the short sale closed in just one month. He also assisted with the home inspection process. Tony, I would like to thank you for your professionalism, experience, expertise, and excellent customer service.
When it was time to sell our home we selected Tony with Stanley Real Estate & Investment. Tony is very personable, responsive and easy to work with. He truly went above and beyond when selling our home. We would definitely use him again and would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
........ I have referred others to him and would highly recommend him to anyone who is in the market of purchasing or selling a home. He has become a great friend and anyone would be lucky to have him as their realtor and friend.
If you are buying or selling a house in Elk Grove, Tony Vruvides is the man to see. He listened carefully to our real estate wants, and then worked tirelessly to help us find a comfortable home that was within our budget. We never at anytime felt pressure to buy, and we always felt that Tony had our best interests at heart. He even pointed out potential problems in houses, problems that we would have not have seen, and he was always right there guiding us through the paper work, helping us get prequalified for a mortgage, and straightforwardly answering our many questions. When a minor complication did arise, he was immediately on the problem and had it resolved in no time. If I were an employer giving Tony a performance review, he would definitely get the highest mark.
YES!!! Finally...DONE DEAL, so HAPPY!!! Thank you Tony, You are awesome my friend!!! Short sale completed!!!
Tony is amazing! He made the short sale process seem effortless. When we needed papers signed, Tony was more than willing to meet us at our home which was very convenient for us because we have two small children. He was always quick to respond to text and emails. Through the whole process, I felt more like Tony was our friend rather than our Realtor. I would recommend Tony to anyone.
I would like to give some kudos to Tony Vruvides for helping me sell one of my properties. He did an absolutely outstanding job. I have been in the real estate game a long time and have never dealt with an agent with such drive and follow through. If you or anybody you know is looking for a real estate agent I would highly recommend him!!!
You have been my biggest pleasure, believe me. These closing are difficult and you have been so helpful. I hope the seller's know this would not be closing, if it weren't for you. This file had many issues, and you got everything taken care of. I trust the closing will go smoothly now and everyone is happy. Thank you for all you've done. =)
.....Your expertise and professional advice is comparable to none. We appreciate your attention to detail and exception communication skills. We look forward to our continued partnering on future properties.
