How did Tony Vruvides become one of the most trusted names in residential real estate in Elk Grove? Tony graduated with a degree in Marketing from a university in Montreal. He had several career opportunities in Marketing, but he realized his true passion lies in real estate because it gives him the opportunity to work directly with clients and be of service to them. “I love being with people, talking to people, and helping people. Real estate is a vehicle that allows me to do that. That’s what got me interested in the industry,” he says. Tony started in real estate in Montreal in 1989. He moved to Elk Grove in 2005 and has been going strong in the local industry ever since. He works with his wife, his son, and another buyer’s agent. With offices in Elk Grove, his team serves the Sacramento area, including Elk Grove and Carmichael.
A staggering 90% of is business comes from repeat and referral clients. What keeps his clients coming back and eager to spread the word about Tony among their friends and family? He’s incredibly responsive. “If a client calls me, I call them back within an hour. It doesn’t matter if it’s midnight—I will call them back by one in the morning,” he says. His clients rave that he keeps them informed during every step of the process. Tony has a knack for keeping up with past clients. Twice a month he reaches out via email, sending helpful market updates or a short video email. He also hosts client get-togethers, reaches out by phone to let past clients know they are on his mind, and keeps up-to-date with what’s happening in their lives via social media. “I am constantly there for them,” Tony says, “and as a result, they don’t forget me.”
To market listings, Tony conducts a thorough marketing campaign on social media, his website, the MLS and other major real estate websites. He also sends “just listed” postcards to let people in the community know about the property. What’s his favorite part of the job? “I love interacting with people,” Tony says. “I love sharing my expertise in my field. I love being around people and helping people out. A house is someone’s dream. Other than a person’s family, a home is their biggest investment. It’s amazing being part of that and helping that dream come true for my clients.”
To give back to the community, Tony participates in multiple charity events throughout the year sponsored by his brokerage, Stanley Real Estate & Investment. In his cherished free time, he loves traveling and spending time with his family. He’s of Greek decent, and he recently took his family to Greece. For the future, Tony hopes to eventually have one of his sons take over the business, and leave a thriving legacy for his family to continue. Now that’s a worthy goal that combines his commitments to his clients and his family!
