Tonya Zimmern

Licensed Rea Estate Agent Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate SL653517
I've dedicated myself to serving our beautiful Emerald Coast as a realtor for the past 20 years. I love our community and believe our coastal living mixed with southern charm make the Gulf Coast one of the best kept secrets in the south. My comprehensive knowledge of our growing real estate market and attention to detail when serving clients has earned me the position of #1 Agent in Northwest Florida for Coldwell Banker and a spot in the Top 100 Coldwell Banker Agents in Florida. I pride myself on always being available, personalizing every transaction, and prioritizing your needs throughout the home buying and selling process.

There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional - integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills and a high-quality professional network, all of which are hallmarks of how I work.

That said, in my 20 plus years experience as a Gulf Coast real estate professional, I've also found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting my clients first. This means keeping myself accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator, and responding quickly to your needs. This "client first" philosophy has always been my approach and it requires me to continually improve my skills and ways of doing business.

When I had good questions, Tonya was always happy to help. But more importantly, when I had dumb questions, Tonya was just as happy to assist me. Getting a hold of her was easy as pie, and she made the process of selling out home painless. I had to move away from Florida for work unfortunately, but when I can move back, Tonya will be the first call I make!

I would recommend Tonya to anyone! She is very professional and knowledgeable in her job. She helped us sell our house and the first day we met, she sat down with us and made sure we understood the whole process. If you want a worry free time selling your house, I would talk to Tonya.

Tonya helped me out greatly when the first home I tried to buy (it was being flipped) was not ready and the seller breached contract twice. She really stuck up for me and I was able to get my earnest money back no problems.

We were in Pensacola to buy a house. All the houses we wanted to look at went under contract quickly. She found us great houses to look at that were similar what we were looking for. We picked the house we wanted and she was able to negotiate quickly. Now we are living in our home we love.

Tonya Zimmern far exceeded my expectations and needs while shopping for and then purchasing my home. She was not only on top of all of her responsibilities, but on top of everyone else's as well; loan process, inspections, repairs, and she got me a great deal. I highly recommend Tonya Zimmern for any real estate needs you have.

We were moving from New Mexico to Pensacola and flew in for three days to look at houses. Tonya was fantastic during the entire process to include advice on mortgage lenders. I highly recommend working with Tonya!

From our first interaction I knew that I had someone special. I was introduced to Tonya through the USAA Real Estate Rewards Network along with another realtor. Ms. Zimmern was extremely prepared and wasted no time in telling me exactly what needed to be accomplished to get what I wanted from the sale of my home. Throughout the entire renovation process, Tonya was available at almost a moment's notice to answer any questions I had or to assist me in finding the services I needed to get the job done. Once the renovations were complete, she was prompt in getting the listing prepared and, within three days of going live, we were under contract for full asking price! It was nothing short of a blessing to have Tonya as my agent and I would unquestionably recommend her to anyone for the sale or purchase of a home.

Tonya responded to us immediately with our first call on a Sunday morning. We wanted to get something definite before the end of the day and she delivered! We made an offer, she did all the follow-up and by 9pm that night we had an accepted offer. We were able to close within a week and a half. She went above and beyond to make sure that happened and we were happy, and we recommend her highly to anyone looking to buy or sell!

Tonya was great to work with from beginning to end. Her knowledge of the local area and dealing with the military community were a big help. Tonya was very quick to respond to any questions we had, even after the house was sold. I would recommend Tonya to anyone needing a Real Estate Professional.

Excellent realtor. She stayed on top of the entire homebuying process and helped us through each step. Drove the process along to ensure that everything came together in time for closing. Extremely knowledgeable about Pensacola real estate, especially the East Hill area . Responded to every question we had and even took time to educate us about information from our lender.

Tonya has been a blessing to work with from the very beginning. It is very clear how knowledgeable she is in the entire process and for first time home buyers, that was a big plus. she knew we were new to the process and made all the steps very easy to understand. We were in the process of also planning a wedding, and knowing this Tonya made it her responsibility to take as much of the work off of our hands and only deliver the results she had promised from day 1. We absolutely recommend her for your home buying process; she is an invaluable asset and a wonderful person to have on your team.

We were so lucky to have Tonya as our real estate agent. She treated us with the same dignity and respect as you would a high dollar client, and that made us feel like a million dollars! She is s true professional at her job & I will be referring her to my friends & family in the future.

My experience with Tonya was hands down one of the best experiences I've had with anyone in the professional community. Her knowledge of the real estate market and the local area was superb. She was honest with me about everything and gave me constructive/honest feedback on all the houses I was looking at. We looked at houses for nearly three entire days. The entire time she is with her client she is dedicated to them. She wasn't on her phone every five minutes talking to someone else--she was actively engaged with the searching process even pulling over into a parking lot once or twice to look for anything that had popped up on the market that same day. In doing that, she actually found the house I ended up purchasing, all on a whim. Her contacts in the local area are great also. I would recommend using the lending agents she recommends and the insurance company also. In doing so, I closed two weeks earlier than planned (conveniently, right before the new year) and her recommended insurance agents saved me 40% over the "military friendly" company I had trusted for so long.
