Tony brings a wealth of sales and customer satisfaction knowledge to the forefront. He retired from the automotive general management business after 31 years in 2015.
During his first full year (2016) working with and for Davies-Davies and Associates, he was successful in reaching and attaining a top 25 status (ranked 21st) in total dollars sold among all Realtors within the Southern Adirondack Realtors Inc.. In 2017 and 2018 respectively, Tony achieved a top 35 status (ranked 33rd) and top 10 status ( ranked 8th) in total dollars sold. Tony attributes this to his loyal clients, dedication, coupled with the plethora of knowledge and tutelage he received from the extremely talented and tenured staff of brokers and agents at Davies- Davies and Associates. He believes that success is a team effort.
After actively researching the many “big box” real estate agencies, Tony decided on trying to locate the best of the best, well rooted, boutique, premier branded agency in the area. His desire was to find a true, honest, and well established owner/broker with a unique and genuine down to earth personality to mimic his own; an agency that focused on personal and professional service to each and every individual client. He found just that in Davies-Davies and Associates.
Tony specializes in the Lake George, Queensbury, and Saratoga Springs regions including all of Warren, Washington, and Saratoga Counties. He enjoys selling properties within all local lake areas; each lake is so unique and so is each client. He also finds listing and selling land building lots and larger rural hunting tracts in Warren and Washington Country extremely fun and enjoyable. He isn't afraid to hike through the woods with clients during any time of the year. So bring your snow shoes!
Tony believes that a professional licensed real estate salesperson will provide a world class and exceptional experience to all clients. He prides himself on being extremely organized, a great communicator, an attentive listener, and will tailor your experience based on the facts of your desired wants and needs.
After 13 plus years as General Manager of Lexus automotive franchises, he completely comprehends customer and client desires within a transactional sales environment. The bar has been raised to a new level and it will continue to rise. His promise is to offer and provide you a truly outstanding experience from beginning to end. He has learned, from his years of experience, to be in the “Constant Pursuit of Perfection”, a well known Lexus Covenant. He has been involved in over 30000 buy and/or sell automotive transactions. The reasons he managed to retain a 31 year career in the automotive business is from being straight forward, honest, and making experiences special, memorable, fun and enjoyable; experiences not easily forgotten. This is the foundation of personal and brand loyalty and creates future referrals.
Although he has won many personal and team dealership awards, his highest achievements have been hiring and training new sales personnel; then grooming them for future managerial promotions. He is proud and grateful to have assisted many original sales trainees to high management levels. They are now managing well known automotive franchised dealerships or sales departments.
During his free time, Tony enjoys the outdoors. His greatest passions are hunting, fishing, snowshoeing, boating, and landscaping. He grew up in the Queensbury/Lake George area and has lived in the Saratoga Springs area for 23 years. In 2019, he and his wife, Valerie, moved full time into their home on Kattskill Bay, Lake George to enjoy the year round beauty that Lake George provides and to have access to inventory (by boat and/or by car), for customers and clients. Both stated, " Our customers and clients love that we can show and tour Lake George lake front real estate by boat if weather permits. It truly makes the the buying experience so much more intimate and customized while also saving time."
He enjoys spending time traveling, and just being with his wife and best friend Valerie. Valerie worked for, and recently retired from a local newspaper based out of Glens Falls, NY for 27 years as a professional sales and advertising consultant. Upon her retirement, Valerie joined the team at Davies-Davies and Associates during the Spring of 2019 as a NYS Licensed Salesperson and has had an incredibly successful start. Valerie has a large sphere of influence of business owners, contacts, and friends. While working together since mid 2019, Tony and Valerie have a combined closings total that is quickly approaching $40+ MM.
Bottom line, Tony wants each and every client to enjoy the experience of a lifetime while acquiring or selling a property. He will dedicate his time, sales and negotiating skills, high energy and personality to making it all come together for you. It is important that you do not settle for anything less!
