My original meeting with Delia was accidental. I had just had knee surgery; she lives nearby but I didn't know her. She stopped by my house because she had seen something in my yard which needed attention and she took care of it. During the conversation which ensued, I learned that she is a realtor and I told her that I was considering selling my house since it seemed to be getting harder and harder to keep it up. I believe that she could have taken advantage of the situation and used it to her advantage but she didn't. It turned out that almost one year went by before I finally made the decision to sell and called her. She worked very hard on the sale and in about three months we had a prospective buyer. Then the fun really began as we went back and forth with questions, negotiations and whatever. She stayed on top of everything as she worked to bring both of us to an acceptable price, conditions and date of sale. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor.

She represented a property which was 1500 miles away from us. In a very short time, we felt as if we were dealing with a close friend. Her honesty was so surprising that we felt it was necessary to verify some of her comments. After a couple of verificatrions, it became evident that we had the real deal. She was with us every step of the way and then some (a lot!). After purchasing the property and THEN finally seeing it, some of Delia's observations proved to be wrong. What we found was even better than described. This total stranger has now moved to the category of friend (uh oh) and we would recomend her in the highest manner to anyone seeking that rare combination of expertise and honesty.
We decided that it was the best place for us to live and to have our children and grandchildren visit us here and enjoy this place too. On the Zillow.com we found a very nice property and sent requests to the agents listed there. We got a very quick respond from one of the agents and scheduled the same day appointment to go see the property. That was Toby Biondi. Perfect experience! From the initial consultation through the day we got the keys to our condo and even weeks later Toby has gone above and beyond for us. This is what makes him great: 1. He really takes the time to get to know you and your goals. 2. He is upfront about what you can expect. He doesn't give you false promises. 3. He is honest every step of the way. He will tell you immediately if he doesn't think a house is right for you. He is the opposite of someone who will rush you through the process just to get his commission. 4. He is incredibly knowledgeable about the process. The home-buying and especially escrow process can be very intimidating for a first-timer. He will lift you up in his arms and carry you through the thickets and gently lay you down in the soft peaceful meadow that is home ownership. 5. He is very responsive - he quickly replied via phone or email to all of our questions. We had a great experience working with Toby and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to our friends and family and will for sure use him for our future real estate needs!
Bondi deserves our recognition. We were in Germany transitioning to Tampa FL. My husband didn't want to wait to buy a house due to rising interest rate. So, we started looking for a house online. We had a realtor preferred by our bank who's less interest communicating via internet and long distance phone calls. Mr. Bondi did just that! From day 1, We felt to be the only client he had. There was no waits. Any minor or major issues were resolved by him, for us. So buying a house from overseas was made easy and we are very please with the outcome. He is a very honest man with integrity. Very friendly and trustworthy. So we entered our house we bought while in Europe. And we're very happy we did it...with him. We're in the military and we move a lot. Definitely will do business with him again in terms of buying and selling houses. Yep he's stuck with us!
He is the best broker I have ever dealt with! Warm, personable and a real pro. He found a buyer for my house in a week! Everything went smoothly and my deal was done. I recommend Toby one hundred percent and enjoyed dealing with him.
He was extremely patient and truly listened to what I wanted. He immediately provided me with a list of properties that fit my parameters and followed up asking for my feedback on each. As Toby is a life long resident of the area, he truly opened up my search area showing me great neighborhoods I was unaware of. His knowledge of the area is amazing. Toby was able to answer almost all of my questions immediately, however, if there was one he was uncertain of, he was quick to research the question and get back with me immediately with a full and complete answer. What I appreciated most about Toby was how obvious it was that he was not just "out to sell a property" but truly wanted to help me do what was in my best interest. I would HIGHLY recommend Toby Biondi as a Real Estate Professional. I plan on having Toby list a waterfront home I inherited in the near future.
I am a first time buyer and Mr. Biondi was of so much help to me. I had little knowledge and was very nervous to take on something so significant. Toby helped me through each and every step and was there to answer every question I had throughout the entire process. I truly believe I wouldn't have been able to do this without him.
He doesn't give up until you find the home you want. ... Before Toby I had emailed a number of realtors about houses in FL but none of them would even answer my emails. He also has knowledge of the area which is very helpful!
I am new to Florida and was looking in several areas within Tampa Bay. Delia was extremely knowledgeable and was able to answer questions about each neighborhood/area that I was interested in. Delia and Team proactively assisted in my search, and were always willing to assist in anyway they could. I would highly recommend Delia and Team to anyone looking for a home.
Worked hard finding us the right house. Worked hard negotiating a closing and a great deal with the seller. Knew what to look for as far as what needs to be fixed by the seller and guided us through the whole process and made sure we were protected.
Delia told me what needed to be done in order to sell the house we got everything done and the house was sold and closed on within 6 week I would highly recommend them.
My wife and I found ourselves in a difficult position of trying to find a home while still living in Germany. We had representation by other buyer agents but were not getting the level of support that we required. Toby understood the problem we were faced with and was willing to go the extra mile to help us find the home we would love. Every home we wanted to see (and there was many), Toby made an appointment, took a tour of the home, and uploaded a video within 24 hours of our request. He took the additional steps of talking to the neighbors to get their opinions. Never did we feel like Toby was trying to just complete the sale. He would give us the facts (the good, the bad, and the ugly), make recommendations and let us make the decision. Every time we decided to keep looking, he jumped back in with the same level of tenacity. I will definitely use Toby again. He is extremely trustworthy and all around a good person.
We called the listing agents on five houses for sale, and Delia was the only one to call back; and she called back within an hour! After that first call, we decided to work with Delia. Delia was very friendly, helpful, and responsive. She expertly navigated us through the home buying process. She made the process smooth. ..and we closed on our new house March 7, 2014!
Petersburg, FL. Mr. Biondi was our Realtor and he did an amazing job. He was extremely knowledgeable about the area and provided excellent customer service. Toby held our hand through much of the process and we could not be more grateful for his expertise. I highly recommend Toby to anyone that is looking to buy or sell a home. He is the best of the best!
Biondi has been a pleasure to work with. From spending the time to get to know what I want to negotiating with buyers and walking me through the process, it’s been great to FINALLY have someone that truly had my best interest in mind and not just another Realtor looking for a quick commission. With his honesty, I couldn't have asked for a better partner in my search for a home. Being that he grew up here in town, it was also nice to have his knowledge of the area behind every decision we made. I've sent a friend his way and he couldn't agree more. Thanks Toby!
