I had a great experience working with Tony to buy my first home. Never having been through the process before, I had a lot of questions. I could always count on Tony to respond quickly with answers and keep me updated throughout the process, from our first meeting through to the closing. I looked at numerous condos and houses, and he was always patient and would find out any additional information about a prospective property when I had further questions. The house I finally decided on needed some work, and Tony even helped me locate reliable companies to help with repairs after I moved into the house. Tony has a great attitude and is committed to helping his clients find the home that is right for them. I would recommend him to anyone.

Since I first met Tony he has always presented himself as the consumate realtor. He promptly replied to all my phone calls, answered all my questions and even made suggestions when they were called for. His easy going approach made the process enjoyable and his knowledge of the real estate market was essential in finding the right home.
I would not hesitate to recommend Tony to anyone looking to purchase a home for themselves or for investing. He works for his clients and is is always available to go the extra mile.

We’re so thankful that Tony was our realtor when we bought our house this fall. Becoming first-time homebuyers could have been really stressful, but Tony was so encouraging, patient, and knowledgeable. We found exactly what were looking for and Tony helped every step of the way, guiding us patiently through what could have been a stressful process. He was always happy to work around our crazy schedules and expeditious in answering our many questions and scheduling showings. Tony is one of the nicest people you’ll ever meet. His contagious optimism and work ethic allowed us to enjoy the excitment of finding and buying our first house.
Many Thanks, Tony!

Working with Tony O. was a fantastic experience for us. Tony was tremendously responsive and very quickly honed in on the characteristics we were looking for in a house. Once we’d found a house (after three afternoons viewing homes), he continued to support us with great advice and support through closing.

Tony was first recommended to us by a few close friends when my fiance and I were looking for our first home. Buying a house itself is stressful enough, much less being a first time home buyer. From the first time we met Tony he gave off a professional yet personable impression. I could tell right away that he really meant it when he said he was committed to helping us find our first home. We looked at what seemed like a lot houses in person and spent more time looking online. Tony was more then patient with us while trying to find time in our schedule to look at houses. I work weekdays while my fiance works nights and weekends and he was more then flexible, even at short notice, when we would suggest times to look at a house. During the whole process, I never felt rushed to just find a house. Tony was very encouraging that we would find with right home. Once we found the perfect house and went through the negotiating process, it was finally time to close. During closing we were delayed while waiting to hear from the sellers. It came to the time when both My fiance and I both had to get back to work and we were waiting on paperwork. Tony graciously offered to stay and wait to hear from the seller while we had to return to work. He drove out of his way to get the paperwork to us both individually to make sure we closed on time. Tony was not only a great realtor but in the end I feel we also gained a friend. I would recommend Tony, in a heart beat, to anyone looking for a home.

Tony, just wanted to thank you for your professional attitude and attention to detail in finding our Condo for us. Especially thanks for the entire day you spent lining up showings since we were out-of-towners. We will certainly recommend you to friends and family who are looking for a home. Keep up the good work.

We referred Tony to two separate house-seeking friends in one day.
Both friends called Tony and used him as their realtor. As a thanks for the referrals, Tony took us out to dinner to catch up and also discuss realty (we were casually thinking about buying a duplex). Less than a week later, we were looking at houses. And a few days after that, we had put in our first offer. And before we knew it, we were moving into our amazing south Minneapolis duplex. Yep, he’s just that good! But in all seriousness, Tony is awesome. He’s upbeat, positive and genuinely excited to help you through the house-buying process. I would recommend him to anyone, but especially the first-time buyer. I thought it would be a grueling, emotional ordeal, and though we did have a couple bumps in the road, the overall process went amazingly smooth (and fast!). For the record, our closing only took 26 minutes!
Is that some sort of record? Tony O rocks!

Jennifer and I enjoyed our experience working with Tony on our house buying experience. We really felt like he was there for us to whatever lengths were required. The adventure of looking @ 8 houses on one Friday evening really sums up the level of commitment he provided to the process. We appreciated his input as well as his availability to answer questions throughout. We did have our stressful moments but overall the process went smoothly thanks to his assistance. It is/was much appreciated. Thanks again!

I originally met Tony Oliveri as a reference from a close friend of mine. This was my first time buying a condo/house so I was not sure what to expect and wanted an agent that was honest and a good person. Tony was that guy. I had my eye on my dream place for a while and he helped me make it a reality. He is a very well connected person and in turn all areas of the purchase was covered. He treated me like a friend but yet kept business professional. Let’s just say I’ve heard nightmares about closings, mine was said and done in less than an hour and a half. I personally recommend Tony to anyone I know that’s looking to get a house or a condo. The experience was a great one and was a pleasure!

I spent two and a half years trying to buy a foreclosure. The three other buying agents I dealt with were slow to call, txt, or e-mail me back. It would some time take days to get a showing. I put offers in on 5 properties but I was either late and other offers were accepted or the paperwork was wrong and my submission was rejected. That all changed when I met Tony. He was always available. He fed me information on properties I may be interested in. When I had a property I wanted to look at he would show me the property not only the same day but sometimes within an hour. Which is what happened in November of 2010 after only having Tony as my agent for three months. A property came up for sale at noon. I talked to Tony at 1:00. Looked at it at 2:00. He then spent the next 4hrs getting all the Fanny Mae paperwork together. By 7:00 the offer was signed and faxed. The paperwork was flawless, the timing was perfect and at 8am the next morning the offer was accepted before any one else had a chance. I got a great deal on a great home. Thanks Tony O.

I truly enjoyed working with Tony on the successful purchase of my new home in St Paul. Being a 1st time buyer, I appreciated (and needed) Tony’s expertise and insight all along the way. His professional, flexible, creative, and always hard working approach helped me reach my goal of a new home. He always wanted to address any concerns or questions I had at any time, and my interests were always his primary concern. Whether buying or selling, I recommend him without hesitation for your success. Tony is not only a great agent, he’s a great person as well.

The process of buying a home can be intimidating. As a first-time home buyer I was not only intimidated but completely unaware of how to even begin. Tony helped me through every step of the process and always remained helpful, reassuring, and informative. Tony maintained a level of professionalism that I respect but he nevertheless remained down to earth and relaxed so I never felt alienated by the details of the process. Tony always focused on what was most important to me: getting the home I wanted for the price I wanted. From start to finish Tony remained accessible and courteous. His informed advice gave me the confidence to get what I wanted in a home and feel good about it too. Finally, Tony went above and beyond to work out any last minute speed bumps so that I could close when I wanted to. The whole process could not have moved more smoothly. I had a positive experience and I bought a home on my terms. I couldn’t be more pleased with the job Tony did and I will gladly recommend him to my friends and family.

Being a first-time home buyer is hard, confusing, and very intimidating. My search for a home took 9 months. Along the entire time with my varying wants and needs, rants and raves was Tony. What can I say, he came to bat for me on numerous occasions which, in the end, is what you want from a great real estate agent. My process was arduous and full of ups and downs. While my emotions ran the gamut, Tony’s were a constant, a constant positive. I learned a lot from the process and most of my learning came from Tony. He is very knowledgeable and has many great resources. I would suggest, and have suggested, Tony to any home buyer or seller, new or experienced. He did everything I asked and more. I closed on my home December 16th, 2010 and he continues to check in on me to make sure everything about the home is going well. On top of the excellent service, he helped me get a great price on a home. After the appraisal I was already in the black for $17,000. I’ve never in my life felt more like I was a salespersons’ only client…and I know for a fact he has many clients. The smartest decision you could possibly make when buying or selling a home is to hire Tony Oliveri. I cannot say enough about how good I feel about our journey; and that’s exactly how he makes you feel…like you are on a journey together, where the end result is positive.
Thanks again Tony,
