Greetings! I'm Tonja Baker-Ferrell , Florida Realtor and transplanted native of upstate New York. As a Full-time Real Estate consultant, in this industry for almost 10 years, I understand the importance of Home and Family! I am a military spouse (retired), proud mother (one Military and one Tween), pet owner , and active community member. While I am also active in my Church, Girl Scouts, PTA and numerous professional organizations; My foremost goal is always to give my customers unsurpassed service. After a 22 year career in Health Care, As a case manager and Administrator, I decided on a significant change of career when I switched to Real Estate. Real Estate is both my passion and my career! I thrive on cultivating long term relationships with people, striving to be an asset to both buyers and sellers. It's my goal to do business with both professionalism and an attention to detail, traits that have served me well as I served on the boards of various community organizations over the years. I genuinely care about other people and real estate is another way to express that by helping others achieve their dreams. I am a hard worker, and when I set my mind on something, I rarely give up before I have attained my goal. These traits have served me well in facilitating and closing many short sales and foreclosures. I am NOT afraid of Hard work , and that continues to pay off as I have received many awards and recognitions since starting in Real Estate, Including: Watson Rookie Of The Year, Top Sales Agent, Top Listing Agent, Special Recognition Award for Outstanding Business Growth and even Top Listing Agent Of The Year, one year. I recognize that achieving these successes means working extra hard to provide my customers with an extraordinary level of professionalism, dedication, respect and expertise. Traits they should expect and I will always do my best to provide! I understand that the search for a new home or the sale of your current home can be both exciting and stressful. I also understand that choosing the right Realtor to assist with either of these things is an important decision. It effects not only you as an individual, but the future happiness of your family as well. Please know, customer service is important to me. I strive to instill confidence and provide quality service. I believe in staying informed about the market, so that I may provide my customers with the best possible counsel in real estate. I have earned designations as: A certified REOS Foreclosure Specialist; A certified Short sale/Foreclosure representative; A Certified MRP ( Military Relocation professional); and my GRI - level 2 ( graduate degree in Real Estate). Whether you are looking as an experienced buyer / seller; or this is your first real estate transaction, I can be of assistance to you. I am familiar with many buyer programs which are advantageous to first time home buyers , even a lease to own program! If you are looking to sell your home, I have market knowledge to assist you as well! Give me a call, I look forward to hearing from you! "Whether you are buying, selling or renting CALL ME ...Your satisfaction is my only concern! Because helping YOU find home... Is where MY heart Is!"
