Testimonials

Due to a change in jobs I had to move out of state and needed to sell my condo on the far east side of Madison. I don't think I need to describe to anyone how bad the housing market is right now, especially for condos. In fact the first realtor I spoke to basically through up her arms and told me I'd have to foreclose. Tony agreed to take me on and worked with me every step of the way. He was always honest with me throughout the process and gave me a realistic appraisal of our chances. He also worked diligently to advertise the property and attract as many showings as possible. It took a little financial sacrifice but eight months later we had a buyer which, again, in this market I consider a victory. Tony will deal straight with you, will have your best interests at heart, and will work tirelessly for you. I highly recommend him.

My husband and I have worked with Tony at A.I. Jennings Real Estate for over two years, buying and selling properties. We have relied on and truly benefited from Tony's expert advice and assistance. Tony is professional, hard-working, thorough and an all-around great person to work with. The level of research and market analysis Tony provides is second to none. Our real estate investing has been a great experience thanks to Tony!

Thanks Tony!

In the course of searching for our first home, we worked with several realtors prior to Tony, all of whom seemed more intent on what they thought was a nice property than what we did! Rather than just push properties on us that matched the numbers, Tony took the time to actually come to know not only our needs and wants, but also why we needed and wanted them - truly forging an understanding of what would work for us and our budget. It is this personal insight that allowed him to so successfully serve as matchmaker and place us where we had only dreamt we could be.

Finding the right property in the right place at the right price is always difficult, and budget constraints don't make it any easier. Fortunately, Tony was always finding new options for us no-one else had and continually and calmly guiding us through all aspects of the purchase process. He undoubtedly saved us numerous costly mistakes. Not only is his experience in construction and building systems invaluable but his skill at negotiating as well. We were especially glad for his knowledge of alternative homebuilding and appreciation for the unique, which so many others shy away from.

The level of personal service that Tony provides is astounding, particularly regarding the diligence and promptness of his communications, which leave one believing you are his sole concern (though it is certain he has many others!). Even in our case, where we occupied his services for many months, he never wavered in his dedication and constant support to our cause.

I've had the pleasure and privilege of working with Tony on many transactions when I was either buying or selling or both. In every case, he helped me to quickly analyze the pros and cons, of various options, guided by his knowledge of real estate and, equally important, his familiarity with the building trades. Tony knows more than a little about everything... just ask him!

Since he's exceptional at thinking outside the box, Tony is ready with suggestions for unusual situations or whenever any obstacles arise. His positive attitude and friendly disposition are a big plus but he is every bit a true professional and is diligent about following through on every step in the process. This includes making himself available -- no matter what it takes.

Without his expert advice, negotiating and listening skills, creativity and dedication, I would have been lost in the fog on many occasions! Thank you Tony... you've been a lifesaver!

During the months of June, July and early August, 2010, I had the pleasure of working with Tony Jennings and A.I.JENNINGS Real Estate. Tony represented me as a Buyer's Agent to find and purchase the right property for me. I had looked 3 years ago for a quiet, natural, waterfront property and not had any luck. Within hours of contacting Tony, I had a list of 30+ potential properties to read about online. I would not have found the property I closed on in August without Tony's diligence and commitment to me.

He was available to look at properties with me at short notice and, due to his experience and knowledge about both the real estate market and home construction, I made an offer, which was accepted, at a much lower price than I would have made alone. This was a huge savings of money for me.

At all phases of seeking and purchasing, Tony was direct, honest and willing to give or find out the answers to ALL of my questions, which, due to the fact that there were numerous restrictions on the type of property I wanted, were many. To have a person like Tony on my side, representing my interests, elevated the entire experience to one of confidence and as much ease one can hope for in a real estate transaction.

If it sounds like too much praise, I assure you, it is not. Some of us are lucky to have a handful of deeply honest persons of integrity around us. Tony is one of those people for me.

We had such a positive experience working with Tony Jennings on a real estate purchase last winter that we decided to do it again. We just closed on a commercial real estate purchase with Tony assisting us and continue to sing his praises. He knows his stuff and is the best advocate either a buyer or seller could hope for. We would not hesitate to work with him again and highly recommend him to our friends and business associates.

Testimonials often sound exactly like testimonials and most of the time give us little insight into the person we will trust to help with one of the biggest financial and emotional decisions of our lives. So in an effort to give a sincere recommendation, I will begin by saying Real Estate Agents make a lot of money in the sale of your house and if you are like me, you are loathe to give up a chunk of money in these times to someone who you just met and sees dollar signs in the sale of a house you likely love. After working with Tony and A.I.JENNINGS Real Estate, I have never felt like a person was more deserving of a commission earned because he knew his business well, worked exceptionally hard, and understood the art and science of selling a house. Tony took the time to personally understand my needs and communicate what was necessary to achieve our goals and ultimately sold the house for a higher price than I expected. Tony redefined what I believe the role of an agent can be, and I would recommend him and A.I.JENNINGS Real Estate to anyone over any other.

Tony Jennings is an amazing REALTOR. In under three weeks he helped us write an offer on our dream house, list our house and found us a buyer. He was quick at answering our questions, returning phone calls and was there for anything we needed. During stressful times, he was the calm that we required in order for the whole process to fall together and to keep all the buyers involved happy. We highly recommend Tony to anyone that is in the process of buying or selling. He will be there for you!

Tony,

I want to let you know I was impressed with the way you handled the sale of my property in Blue Mounds. You were very thorough and professional with all aspects of the sale. I am glad you were able to help me and will contact you when I need a REALTOR in the future. Thank you!

Greetings,

During the past 40 years, I have worked with dozens of REALTORS on numerous property transactions. I have never met one as hard working, knowledgeable, conscientious and honest as Tony Jennings. On a recent purchase, we told him what we wanted. He went out and found the perfect property for us—it wasn't even on the market yet. Day and night, he was there to support us through the transaction. Even after the closing, he has remained in contact to make certain that all continues to go well.

I cannot recommend him highly enough and look forward to working with him again.
