Tony worked with us on a purchase in 2018 when we were relocating from the Midwest to Los Angeles having never previously visited the area. He assisted us in evaluating the surrounding cities and helped us understand the differences in the communities. Instead of steering us to property, he assisted us in looking at the lifestyles associated with the various communities and made sure that we understood what each area had to offer. Given that this was our eighth relocation, Tony helped us purchase a home with resale in mind.
Once we got into the process of selecting a home and negotiating a purchase, Tony was very helpful in working through the negotiation. He made sure that we went into the process with a realistic expectation of our ultimate purchase price and he was able to help us achieve our home purchase. Being from out of state, the California Escrow process was new to us and Tony made sure that we understood our rights and responsibilities each step of the way. He also helped us find a mortgage broker associated with a large bank who could close the purchase in under three weeks (seller requirement).
Tony was there for us all the way through closing. He made sure that the seller took care of their responsibilities up through closing and even after the sale has helped us get in touch with contractors to help us make the home our own. Tony was a great help to us as we moved across the country to the LA area. We would thoroughly recommend him and Marina to help you not only find a home but also the right community and neighborhood.
We used a new and I believe unique program called Compass Concierge which is exclusive to Accardo Real Estate and Compass. Through the program, we were able to restore my late mother-in-law's 45 yr old custom home. We painted the exterior, installed new landscaping, added quartz countertops, new windows, etc. The results were a beautifully restored family home that we were proud to offer for sale. Compass fronted all the costs and there were no hidden fees or interest. The payment was simply collected at the end of escrow.
There is no way that we would have been able to do all the restoration needed without this program. Tony and his wife Marina managed all the contractors, provided design advice and made the process easy. Our home was so gorgeous that it was featured in the Curbed LA real estate blog network. Our open houses were packed every weekend and we sold our home quickly. We were actually on vacation out of state when we closed escrow so Tony set up a notary to come to us. Accardo Real Estate handled every last detail and made the transaction seamless. I would highly recommend the Compass Concierge program and I'd especially recommend using Tony and Marina Accardo for your real estate needs. I would rate them more than 5 stars!
I met Tony a few years ago and you can tell he really knows his business well. I did a buy/sell transaction in the same building and I could not have been more pleased with Tony and all the services he helped with.
On the buy-side, he walked me through every step of the process and made sure there were no details I was overlooking. When I needed some minor work to be done in the new condo, he had great contacts and recommendations. I even had a few issues with my bank which he walked me through and helped me understand the whole process and what to expect.
On the sell-side, I will tell you that he knows his market The research he did tell us to price the unit well above what I thought it was worth, and we got 98% of the full asking price in only 4 days on the market. He even gave me a profile on the types of potential buyers we should be looking for, and it was so incredibly accurate to who ended up as the buyer. We were in communication on a daily basis during the wholesale by phone, text, and email. When there were issues, he always had solid advice on how to work through the problems. He made the whole process super easy.
Overall I would highly recommend using Tony for your realtor needs. I know I will if I ever move again.
Tony has seen us through seven transactions so we know him and his abilities. He’s helped us buy three houses, he’s sold three of our homes and has helped us find and negotiate monthly payment on a rental.
He is a warm, friendly, honest, and hard-working family man. All of our transactions have been smooth because he is excellent at putting out fires quietly with no extra stress to us. He quickly responds to your calls and texts even when I have random, unimportant questions. He’s been able to sell all our homes very quickly because of his savvy and creative marketing skills and the use of social media.
His realtor wife Marina has excellent design taste and has been a huge asset in staging our homes to sell. Together they are an unbeatable team!
Being a family man, Tony understands the importance of finding you a home in a location that suits the whole family and is mindful of every single family member. When he proudly hands over the keys to your new home, it’s in immaculate condition.
He is currently working on renting out one of our homes and we will be looking to sell one again in the next couple of years and will be wanting Tony to work with us again. If he’s not sick of us!
We were referred to Tony by friends of ours who worked with him on multiple transactions, buying and selling. We couldn't have asked for a better broker and person to work with. Almost everything in the home buying experience is emotional and Tony was by our side, consistent, honest, and doing everything and more to make the process stressless and actually fun. He listened to what we wanted and over delivered on our expectations at every step. He knows the area, the market, and is trusted and respected in the community. Would recommend him to anyone!
Tony has been a trusted advisor for many years, always providing guidance when it was needed even when there was no deal to be made. The guidance was supported facts as well as a genuine understanding of what our family needed. Once we decided to take action Tony and Marian handled every aspect of the sale and purchase of our homes making sure we achieved the best possible financial results and securing us the best home for our family. We are grateful for their service and won’t hesitate to recommend them at any opportunity.
If there were 6, 7, or 8 stars I would have given them all to Tony! Our house didn't even hit the market before Tony had it sold to his own network, in one day no less. That aside, Tony is the complete package coming with incredible real estate expertise, a dialed-in network of service providers to complete any job with very reasonable prices and an eye to know what buyers want and sellers need to do for top dollar. I can't wait to work with him again on our next purchase, he is our guy from here on out!
I bought my first (and current) home with Tony as my agent. I was not an easy client. We put in 9 offers before it was right. Tony was the most level headed guy during the whole process. He made it very enjoyable and as I look back as a now seasoned homeowner, I really appreciate the advice he gave me while buying.Things like "Hey you have two kids, you should get the right number of bedrooms now, otherwise, you have to upgrade way sooner than you might want to" really helped.
We recently closed our 3rd transaction with Tony and as usual, he helped us in getting top dollar for our home. His communication with us throughout the buying and selling process was great and Tony's knowledge, experience, and ethics are unparalleled. Not only is Tony a great realtor but we are now proud to call him a friend.
Tony is very knowledgeable when it comes to almost anything about the Palos Verdes Peninsula. He has a great way of looking at problems from different angles to discover solutions, and used his diverse connections to find us the perfect place! We are very pleased with his services!
Tony and his team set out to be not just the best possible realtors but also trusted resources. Their experience goes well beyond their years as South Bays top-producing Realtors.Contact Us
