When he’s not out finding his clients their dream home, he can usually be found enjoying a day outside exploring his favorite trails at Annadel State Park! Read on to learn more about Tony Natoli and some of his tips for becoming a successful real estate agent.
Why did you choose to pursue a career in real estate?
I remember being behind the counter in my 9-5 sales job and wanting to do more; the customer would come in, we would build a relationship and then they would leave. In real estate, a home sale is so much more dynamic than a 30 minute transaction and allows me to dive deep into the customer, their needs and build a life long relationship together. It is 100% the best part of being a Realtor.
How have you adapted your marketing/business during the era of Coronavirus (COVID-19)?:
I’ve always found the pre-meeting orientation to be something both sides appreciate so I have taken that approach further by including more preparedness for showings during COVID and offering real-time virtual tours.
What’s the best thing that happened to you this month?:
I’m excited to say I moved into my new home a walking distance to Annadel State Park, right next to my favorite trail.
Are you a morning or a night person?:
Nothing beats a morning sunrise and a cup of coffee to start the day.
What is one of the things you would put on your “bucket” list?:
Travel is the first thing that comes to mind. We have such a beautiful and intricate world that I would love to explore more of.
What is something you wish you could be good at?:
I wish I could be great at the drums!
What is something most people would never guess about you?:
I have the fluffiest, snow white cat who thinks she is a dog and her fur joins me on every appointment.
Must have purse/car item?:
Gum! I am a sucker for mint chewing gum and keep a fresh pack nearby for when the current runs out…which doesn’t take long.
What does a perfect day in Sonoma/Mendocino/SF County look like for you?:
A hike at Annadel State Park, my favorite place, followed by lunch and iced coffee.
What’s your favorite local restaurant?:
Definitely Lococo’s Cucina Rustica
