Get to Know Tonya Chrislu

I am a Realtor® with HomeSmart, serving the residential real estate market in Santa Clarita, California.  Santa Clarita has so much to offer.  It's a city that is relatively new (incorporated in 1987) and well planned. It has excellent, blue-ribbon schools, high tech businesses, lots of great entertainment opportunities, paseos (walkways that connect one community with another,) and it’s one of the safest cities in the country for a city this size.  Although the population is about 250,000 people, it has a small town feeling and is very family-friendly.  My kids grew up here and had great opportunities.  Like most residents, we simply enjoy living here!

Prior to working in real estate, I was an educator and also worked in sales and recruitment. In these roles, I developed strong communication skills and an ability to put my clients at ease. Making a transition into or out of a home can be pretty stressful. My goal is to make it as hassle-free as possible and to keep you informed through the whole process.  My buyers and sellers know that, to me, there are no stupid questions. My goal is to be fully engaged with you, provide a high level of service, and care for best interest so you get the best deal possible.  

I came to HomeSmart, because it has a reputation for advanced technologies that integrate buyer and seller systems into a cohesive and enjoyable client experience. Since its beginning in 2000, HomeSmart has rapidly developed into one of the nation's fastest growing real estate brokerages. With a commitment to its agents and clients, HomeSmart has now grown to over 10,000 agents, with offices throughout the Southwest and continuing to grow nationally.  The office in Santa Clarita is the first to open in Los Angeles County.

How am I different from other agents?

Well, for one thing, I listen to you and find out what you want and need so that I can be effective in finding solutions for you.  If I can’t help you, I’ll let you know up front.  I will not try to sell you on what I want or what I think you should want.  My goal is not to just get a listing or a buyer.  My goal is to exceed your expectations so you can easily refer me to people you know who may need my help.

Unlike other agents, I never represent both buyer and seller.  Some agents do that so they get both the buyer and seller commission. That’s like a lawyer who tries to represent both the plaintiff and defendant in a lawsuit.  It doesn’t work.  In fact, I think it’s unethical.  I represent and negotiate for you--and only you! 

You deserve the best, so everything I do is high-quality and high value.  Sellers who work with me get a free inspection consultation, free consultation with a staging professional, photos taken by a professional photographer, a free home warranty during the listing period, professional marketing materials and a custom website that markets only your home.  You also get to work with my team of professionals, including a transaction coordinator who helps make sure all the paperwork is completed so you close on time.  

Buyers can rely on me to know the market and preview homes ahead of time so that our time together is well spent.  I make sure the inspections and contingencies are removed on time and keep you abreast of all the details until the sale closes and you have the keys to your new home. The bottom line is that you get honest, cutting-edge services that give you the confidence you're in good hands. 

I’d be honored to handle your next move!
