Toni Patillo is truly a dynamic real estate professional and very likely the most knowledgeable Senior Real Estate Specialist instructor in the Southern California area. As Broker of Record for the Keller Williams Santa Monica | Palisades office, she and I have a shared interest in developing our sales team. Toni’s leadership of the team touches on many facets including education about business building and client relations. Her commitment to working with seniors, was personally an inspiration for me to obtain my own Senior Real Estate Specialist designation. Toni really went the extra mile as the instructor for my session, by understanding the needs of each person attending the and making the curriculum come to life by weaving in real life experiences. Toni is an exceptional coach, trainer, and real estate professional who “sets the bar” for excellence in relationship-building, ethical behavior, professionalism and compassion. In addition, she is highly regarded and sought after as a speaker and author on senior transition issues as well as various real estate related topics. I give Toni the highest recommendation possible.
As a Business and Financial Advisor for 50 years I can confidently say that Toni Patillo is one of the most professional, thorough, knowledgeable, motivated and with the highest of integrity, Real Estate Brokers that I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. My only regret is that I wasn’t introduced to her decades ago.
Phenomenal realtor. Sharp as a tack. Efficient beyond belief. Toni Patillo and William Wilmarth are without equals. They had to negotiate with three lenders + a challenging HOA to sell our condo in a short sale, and they pulled it off with astonishing grace, precision, confidence, and optimism. A+ performance.
I am so blessed to have worked with Toni Patillo from Keller Williams since 2002. She is knowledgeable, everyone knows her , she is kind, Calm and well connected. She is a person of excellence and integrity I highly recommend her and her team to help you not only find your house, but most importantly close the deal. Her mortgage broker Michael di Vita is also a person of excellence.
Toni is one of the best agents I’ve worked with. As a buying agent, she really cares and understands your needs first and foremost. That’s what sets her apart from all other agents out there. And her wealth of knowledge and experience is invaluable. I would work with her again in a heartbeat.
We could not have trusted a better person to help us purchase our home. Thank you for always answering our many calls and questions. You are very patient and professional. We love that you are very knowledgeable about the business. We trusted you with big life decision, not just this time. But three times. Having you and your experienced team by our side. We are sure we made the right decision. We really appreciate all you have done for us. We look forward to working with you again.
My daughter and I recently had occasion to work with Toni Patillo in her capacity as a real estate broker when I was looking to sell property left to me and my family in a trust. I must admit that at first it was overwhelming for me and I was really not looking forward to open houses, with dealing with potential buyers, or not, (afraid that it would be a hard row to tow). Toni was patient and caring in directing me along the way without pressuring me with let’s do this or that. I want you to know that in one open house I had two potential buyers and in no time there was a closing of escrow and it was done. Toni’s expertise and knowledge of the industry made all of this painless. Her connections with investors gave me amazing knowledge of the different modalities and innuendos necessary to set sale prices, obtain loans and other opportunities, etc. I must also praise her assistant Erica Leznik who was amazing at answering all of the my questions and addressing my fears about the sale, the paperwork, the computer programs necessary to E-Sign, etc. and just putting my interim fears to rest. I would recommend Toni and her team with no hesitation to anyone selling property and am assured that on the purchasing end she would be just as amazing.
Couldn’t imagine it being any easier…… A better choice could not have been made when we decided to have LA CITY SHORT SALES help us. William maintained a high level of professionalism from start to finish. I’m convinced his constant and very thorough follow up, industry knowledge and negotiation skills are the reason we were able to get things approved and the deal sealed without headache. I appreciate his efforts and compassion. Without pause I would recommend him to any of my family & friends. You can’t go wrong dealing with William. Sincerely, Dana
William, I got your very kind voice mail and want to thank you for all your diligence with my short-sale. It was due to your skill and follow-through that it got approved. I appreciate your level of tenacity and thoroughness to get it finalized. It is clear that you take your job very seriously and you are a great asset to your company. Sincerely, Suzy
