    We met David simply by calling him to inquire about one of his listings, while vacationing in the Anna Maria Island area. Fast-forward five months and we’ve bought our home and couldn’t be happier. Ever since that first phone call, we’ve been so impressed with David. So, when we decided to start looking at property in the Bradenton / Sarasota areas, we hired him as our agent. He’s genuinely a nice guy who truly enjoys helping his clients, no matter what it takes.

    It’s easy to find an agent to take you around to look at properties but it’s not so easy to find someone as responsive as David and the Zarghami team. With David’s guidance, he helped us find the perfect home and the process of buying a home. Since this was a long distance move, we did a lot of this long distance and it was not as complicated as one would think. His knowledge of the area, his impressive work ethic and his partners in his industry made our process move very smoothly. David is so calm and cool. Nothing seems to test his calm demeanor.

    Once we found our home, he moved quickly. It was late into the evening, on a Saturday night and he got the deal done. We couldn’t believe his willingness to work so late and so hard for us. It made us feel special but it was clear this is how David treats all of his clients. It’s so comforting to work with someone who has that “can do” attitude. His optimism and positive attitude made some of those “sticky moments” go smooth and easy.

    I’d highly recommend David. If you’re looking for an agent who isn’t out to sell you something but is interested in helping you reach your real estate goals, David is the right choice. David isn’t a salesman; he is a professional with a wealth of knowledge and loves his industry. He knows his business and he has a well-rounded team to lean on, who will work hard for you. It’s honestly really hard to express our satisfaction regarding the way we were treated throughout this journey. You go into something like this with certain expectations but he and his team absolutely exceeded our expectations. I feel like we wouldn’t have found this house or moved in the timeframe that we did, if it wasn’t for David.

    Now that we’re done and moving into our new home, I feel like we’ve become friends with David and I will only turn to David and his team for any future real estate transactions.

    Toni was “OUTSTANDING” to work with!!! She helped me find the perfect home. We spent 10 months working together. During this time she was ALWAYS very professional, down to earth, honest, hardworking, respectful, knowledgeable about Sarasota and VERY patient. I found Toni online and took a chance. I’m from Ohio and a VERY conservative buyer. When it came time to negotiate my contract Toni “went to bat” for me. We purchased in new construction. While negotiating our contract she was able to get an allowance of $10,000 for builder upgrades. That was beyond my expectations!!! Building a new home is a very long and frustrating process. Toni was there every step of the way. Constantly updating me weekly with “progress photos” of our new home. Toni was always readily available to answer my questions every step of the way for 10 months!!! When it came time to close there were several issues I had with the builder. Toni once again “went to bat” for me. Pushing the builder to get things done and get them done right. Toni was also GREAT in recommending contractors for me to hire such as a handyman. Toni’s knowledge and resourcefulness was so helpful to someone like me who is from out of state. Toni is a “real gem”!!! I never thought I would find such an amazing realtor online. Not only was Toni my realtor but she has become one of my friends. I would not hesitate to recommend Toni to anyone who is looking for a realtor.

    Toni Zarghami and her TEAM are the BEST. They made what normally a stressful and trying time of selling and buying a home easy, stressLESS and enjoyable. I tried selling my home two other times before I met Toni and in a word it was Dreadful. Toni and her TEAM member Maleah both help me sell my home and find my DREAM home all in about a month. They know everything about the market and about selling and buying homes I felt confident in them the entire time. I Love Them and will only recommend Toni Zarghami and her TEAM for all your real estate needs.

    From the very beginning of our Florida home search, Dave was able to accommodate all our wishes and concerns including what type of house, bedrooms, baths and the pool that we wanted. He responded almost immediately to our requests, questions and let us view the homes and at the end of the tour of each home, he let us describe what we liked or did not like and did not try to “push” the home on us, which we appreciated very much. Throughout the entire process, he was there for us assisting us (at a long distance and in person) in the evaluation of each home and their systems, such as interior/exterior structures, pool filtration, HVAC, etc. and after the sale was finalized he continued to assist us with our new home. We highly recommend the Zarghamis when purchasing a new home.

    Dave & Bev W.

    My husband and I were apprehensive about buying a home so far away from our primary residence in PA. David shows us many homes/condos that I had researched and in a short period of time we found him to be personable, respectful and patient, Nothing was too much trouble. When we needed him to juggle his schedule to accommodate us in order to revisit the property we wanted to buy during the holiday week; he did it! David walked us through all the steps of owning a condo with HOA vs a home. He assisted us with the walk through when we couldn’t be there -with our best interests in mind and full trust of his ability to represent us when needed. We have a new friend in Florida! I will recommend him to everyone I know!!

    I came across Toni’s number purely by chance and it turned out to be a better experience than I could have ever hoped for. I have purchased two other homes in the past and neither realtor compared to the service we received with David and Toni. My husband and I had wine taste on a beer budget. David and Toni were extremely patient with us and really listened to our needs. We toured countless homes and never once felt pressured to buy or like a nuisance to them. They pointed out property or community features that we may have overlooked and answered every one of our questions. David and Toni understand that with the housing market time is essential and were very prompt in getting back with us and never kept us waiting. When we finally found the perfect home, David walked us through every process and was by our side to the end. From the lenders to local handymen and everything in between, David made the home buying experience as stress free as possible. David and Toni make you feel as if you are their top priority and only client. I would highly recommend them to anyone in the market to buy or sell a home.

    Brian & Talisha S.

    We really liked working with Toni & her team..Toni was so helpful with any questions we had with selling the house. I would recommend her & or David to sell your home or help you find a home, so easy to work with.

    Jack & Nancy P.

    David and Toni were great. They work very well as a team. They returned all of our phone calls quickly and had all the answers to all of our questions. Made purchasing a new home a joyous celebration. So much can and does go wrong…. But with them… It was a breeze. Professional… Personal… To the max! I don’t generally like to refer someone … But this duo was outstanding and have recommended them to many!

    Michael & Vandy P.

    Being new to the Sarasota area, I feel very fortunate to have met David and Toni. Not knowing any realtors and moving to a new area, can be like rolling the dice. I have been there before and my experience has been quite mixed. I worked with David at first over the phone, using his user friendly, interactive web site to help find certain homes that met my criteria until I could meet him in person. Once I visited David and Toni’s offices, I knew I was working with someone very professional. We did a review of the prospective homes, and everything was neatly prepared for me prior to us going and visiting a number of homes. Once I found the one I wanted, we talked about market conditions, market analysis, price per foot, comps, etc. to try to determine a good starting offer. The whole process was smooth and seamless, from the contract documents all done electronically. The David and Toni team, walked me through everything and helped me to negotiate a lower price by offering data to the seller that was hard to refute and in the end, I was satisfied with where we landed. They continued to help through the entire process, staying close to the transaction process, inspections and closing. I couldn’t be more pleased with my experience and would most definitely recommend them to anyone.

    David and Toni were wonderful to work with in regards to buying our home in Florida. Anytime of day or night that we contacted David and Toni, they would respond promptly and help us with our concerns. Numerous times I just needed some information to help me make a decision and this information was found and delivered to us quickly. We never had to wait and wonder how long it might be until our questions were answered. David and Toni both impressed on us that they truly cared about us personally. They would strive to make sure all was accomplished in the best way in order to secure our desires in finding the perfect new home. We plan to recommend David and Toni to future friends and family when they are in the need for a quality real estate team.

    Lori & Mark S.


    My husband and I worked with Toni when we purchased our new home. She was truly wonderful! Very knowledgeable and accessible. She really made the process as painless as possible, and we always felt that she was really in our corner. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home!

    Julia & James R.


    Wonderful to work with! Appreciate Toni’s knowledge and willingness to find out answers. Communication was often and always felt we were in the loop. We would highly recommend their services.

    Manny & Melissa A.

    David was a dream to work with. Buying a house isn’t always the easiest of experiences, but he stayed on top of everything and even went out of his way to make sure things were done and done right. He was always in contact with us, as well as our loan officer to keep the ball rolling. Will definitely be looking to go to he and Toni again for any buying or selling needs.

    Michelle & Chad S.

    David was very attentive to our needs and wants in looking for a vacation home. It took us three visits, as we are from out of state, to find what we were looking for and each time he was eager to help us with our search. Research and correspondence were outstanding. When we found our dream location, updates and keeping us informed through the process was amazing. Since we were not local, this was huge for us. David is a pro and you won’t be disappointed working with him.

    Nancee & Mike R.

    I am a resident of Jupiter on the East coast of Florida. I thought I would love living in Sarasota, but knew very little of life on the West coast, I happened to find on the internet, a Realtor named David Zarghami. David’s expertise, patience, hard, exhaustive work, and endless amounts of hours was amazing. David was trying to find me the right property, not just any property. His professionalism is impressive to say the least. I ended up not purchasing a home there, but for anyone looking to move to an unknown area, David is the guy to go to. He has your interest at heart. A rare find.

    Lauren & Rick S.

    Personable and friendly. Toni and David made this a pleasurable experience. They were readily available by phone, text or email and always responded to our issues in a timely manner. Would definitely use them again, if the need should arise! Thanks!

    Bernard & Cathy S.

    David and Toni are great Realtors! As first time home buyers, we did not know all the details about buying a house, however, Toni and David answered all of our questions and offered so much good advice to make our home buying experience as great as possible. David even walked me word by word through the lengthy offer contract, which really helped me understand all the details and legal vocab/descriptions. I would definitely recommend David and Toni.

    Melanie & Jesse B.

    What a pleasure from start to finish!! We were so overwhelmed with selling this house. We knew that we were in a tough market and that we were selling an older home. David Zarghami provided outstanding recommendations, support, advice, and counsel. He helped us to determine a listing price that worked for us in balancing the profit that we desired vs. the amount of time in which we hoped to sell. We had several bumps in the road that were stressful to us as first time sellers, but David was there to reassure us and facilitate every necessary process. We could not have hoped for a better realtor. David was responsive, a great listener, a thoughtful advisor and an organized professional. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a down to earth, “real” person who will help you to navigate this process. He is the best! Awesome!

    Laura M.

    From the very first moment we met David I knew I could trust him. That played a major factor with us hiring him as our real estate agent. His knowledge of purchasing a home was incredible, especially since we are first time homeowners. My biggest fear was being taken advantage of or someone talking us into something we didn’t want to do. David answered every question with full explanations and didn’t stop until we fully understood the answer. We are currently in the process of purchasing a new home and David has made this process extremely easy….pretty close to stress free (being we’re doing this from a completely different state) He is very professional and had this funny way of making us feel like family and not a client. I would highly suggest David to anyone, especially first time home buyers. 🙂

    Tiffany & Carl F.

    David went above and beyond our expectations as our agent. Even though we were out of state while the home was being built, he was constantly in contact with us to ensure that our questions were answered and that the house was built to our expectations. We would highly recommend David’s services to anyone shopping for a new home.

    David’s professionalism and ability to be relational made the selling of my home very simple and stress-free. I was not in the area for most of the time that my house was on the market and I had complete confidence in David’s ability to sell my house and handle all of the details of the selling. I highly recommend David, not only for his knowledge and ability, but more importantly his ability to connect and relate to me, the client on a personal level.

    Ronald K.

    Our experience with David, simply put, was Amazing. David was very professional and yet was always friendly and had a smile on his face. He was always a step ahead and was the first one to inform us if there was something that needed t happen. David’s knowledge of the local area was outstanding! Our home buying process was very enjoyable and my wife and I have David to for that. So thank you David!

    My most memorable thought of David during our process and why we choose him after one meeting, was that there were questions about the local area houses that we asked immediately. Instead of waiting until he got back to his office, he immediately went to work calling the listing agents to find our answers. He was professional, but personable. He was the epitome of patience as it took us 3 or 4 times viewing each house, at different times, so we could accurately detail what we wanted to spend our money on! He was so impressive to us, I found myself looking forward to a lifelong friendship outside the realm of realtor/buyer. He is an exceptional family man and I hope all other families looking for a realtor have the awesome opportunity of securing his talents. I trusted him completely and it was the perfect decision. In 10-15 years when we are ready to sell and buy our retirement home, he will be our realtor!

    Tammy & Jeff J.

    Simply the best there is. No other way to describe David’s knowledge, skills, abilities, and level of patience, understanding and care. He was always available by phone, e-mail and text to answer questions, and was constantly providing updates and answers very very quickly. In most cases, he answered a lot of our questions before we even asked them. The minute we got a pre-qualification for a loan, David was there with us, every single step of the way. The staff at his office are extremely nice and friendly as well. The home buying process can be very complicated and drawn out. David kept us on track and assured us the entire time. I cannot say enough good things about David here. If you are in the market for real estate, he is definitely the guy to go to. A big thank from the bottom of our hearts go out to David for what he has done for us from day one.
