Dear Tony & Lisa
We would like to thank you for all your efforts to sell our home on Lake Greenwood. After several false starts and promises from other brokers, we were impressed with your aggressive approach to selling our home. You did things to sell our home that no one else even suggested, such as drone video, that did the trick. You also stayed in touch during the entire process.
Once we had a possible buyer, you negotiated diligently to obtain an agreement. Your ability to smooth out possible friction between buyers and sellers brought this sale to a happy conclusion.
We would overwhelmingly recommend your services to anyone in your area who is buying or selling real estate. With the conclusion of the business end of this transaction, we feel that we have made new friends.

One of my jobs as a physician leader is coaching physicians and other healthcare providers to be professional. When I met Tony and Lisa I was impressed with their professionalism from the moment I met them. They were both very friendly and personal, but also focused on the task of selling my home from the beginning of that first meeting. They researched the details of the home and suggested a price that was fair for the market. They produced a video shoot of the house and surrounding lake that was so good it honestly gave me second thoughts about selling the property. They were with me every step of the process and always kept me in the loop about potential offers. Bottom line, they sold the home at a fair price that had been on the market for over eighteen months less than three months after I gave them the chance to list the property. If I decide to take another look at Lake Greenwood, I will call Lakelands Realty.

Recently my wife and I had the pleasure of using the services of Tony Curreri to purchase a home on Lake Greenwood. Tony placed us on an e-mail list from which we received updates, almost daily, on all new listings and changes to existing listings that matched our interests. This greatly reduced our workload as we did not have to do extensive MLS searches. Over the course of 5 months we looked at numerous properties and homes all over the lake. Tony always seemed to find a way to become available when ever we needed him, sometimes with very little notice. He never pushed his ideas on us, but instead opened doors and sat back to let us form our own opinions. He was straight forward and honest in answering all of our questions, and was very prompt in getting back to us with information he did not immediately have.
Tony was an even greater asset after we found our home. He handled everything from negotiations all the way to signing the paperwork. Even with all of the pitfalls that occurred during closing, and we had our share, Tony kept everything moving forward and not a date was missed. He also set up the appointments necessary for the inspections and surveys. We closed in 3 weeks! Tony even allowed me to “vent” on a couple of occasions without letting it affect our relationship.
My wife and I have had several bad experiences with past realtors, and have a somewhat sour taste for the industry. We had a wonderful experience with Tony Curreri. Tony is a stand up guy, and my wife and I now consider him a friend. If you’re looking for a realtor, look no further. Tony Curreri and Lakelands Realty are exactly what you’re looking for.
My wife Lauren and I began to visit Greenwood and the lake in early 2008. We were from the NYC area and knew no one in the area. Lauren had grown up in New Providence and we had lived and raised our family there for the last 30 years. We were referred to Tony through a sister real estate company office in our hometown.
The prospect of moving to the lake area represented an enormous change in lifestyle for us and would also represent a big investment, financially and emotionally for our family. We immediately felt comfortable when we learned that Tony and his family had moved from California to the lake, when they could have gone anywhere in the country. In fact it had been a bigger decision for Tony and Lisa since their children were still in school. Ours were grown and out of the house. It allowed us to discuss our concerns and the challenges of such a move with someone who understood.
Tony’s empathy for our situation and his thoughtfulness allowed us to have discussions on a very different level than you would with the average real estate agent. We quickly came to trust Tony’s judgment and felt that we were partners in this decision. There was no question that he had our best interest at heart.
Tony demonstrated a thorough knowledge of the lake and the broader Greenwood community. He was extremely patient as we wrestled with the decision of whether to buy a home or buy a lot and build. He and Lisa had to make this same decision and thus knew the market and the issues very well.
Ironically, we did not buy on the lake but instead on the Saluda River a few miles south of the lake. Our relationship with Tony and Lisa continues and when our best friends from New Providence came to investigate the lake it was very easy to recommend that they work with Tony.

Tony, We wanted to send a note to say Thank You for everything you did for us to make our lot purchase simple and problem free. We were both a little hesitant because of being out of state, but you provided excellent service and information when sending your e-mails of available lots, you thought we would be interested in. When we let you know we would be coming to the area you were accommodating to our busy vacation schedule to meet us and show us the lots. We really appreciated the fact that there was never any pressure to make a decision. Your assistance with our offer & subsequent counter offers was settled within 24 hours. Since we were unfamiliar with attorneys to handle closing, it was nice of you to provide a list of several names to choose from. Closing went without incident and the best part is that it was all handled via email, faxes and U.S. mail. We want you to know if any of our family or friends are ever interested in South Carolina real estate we will be sure to recommend you.
Thanks again, Gary & Marcia Imhoff
In August of 2008, my husband and I purchased our house on Lake Greenwood. We knew the area we wanted to be in, but had no idea of real estate prices in the area. Tony was absolutely wonderful. He showed us just houses that met our criteria and is so knowledgeable of the Lake Greenwood area. His vacation was even scheduled during our offering process, but he kept in touch and his partner stepped in and led us through the sale. They were both so professional and I felt confident in every aspect of our contract process and closing. I work in the real estate field, so I have dealt with many real estate agents and these are two of the best I have ever met.

My husband and I had a delightful experience, from the beginning to the end, with our agent Tony Curreri. We could search for property only on the weekends and that was never a problem for Tony. He was always available to drive us around the lake on Saturdays. Frequently during the week, we received emails from Tony with new property listings. We would ask Tony to check out some properties prior to our arriving in Greenwood and he would. Tony’s willingness to accommodate our restricted schedules and our needs was a great help. He is the first on our invitation list for dinner when we complete our new lake home.
I wanted to take this opportunity to Thank You for the professionalism and extra effort that you delivered during the recent sale of my Ninety Six, SC property. Your name was given to me through a recommendation from my best friend in Greenwood, SC and I couldn't have been more pleased with the service that you provided! Living 600 miles away, I was expecting many heartaches & roadblocks to accomplish this sale. But your willingness & proactive responses made it trouble free and a pleasure. Just as you were referred to me, I will make every effort to recommend your services to my family & friends in the future! Keep up the good work, and GOD bless!

Tony helped us find our perfect place on Lake Greenwood several years ago, and has remained a great friend ever since! He and his family are the perfect ambassadors for Lake Greenwood, and whomever "got" Tony involved in the Connect Lake Greenwood project really knows how to pick people! We look forward to transitioning from a New Jersey home to the lake in the future, and we look forward to the future of all things Lake Greenwood! Keep up the great work, Tony!!
