“You were a great team and both complement one another. We enjoyed working with you during the entire selling process. You both made this stressful and emotional time easier on both of us.

“Professionally, you are both a Ten! It doesn’t hurt to also have warm and caring personalities. We thank you both!”

-- Dinah and Ed, August 2019

“Recently, my husband and I sold our home of fifteen years and bought a new house. Toby and Charlie were wonderful to work with. They were knowledgeable, professional, and patient. I was impressed by how perfectly they priced our home so that it sold immediately and how helpful they were during every step of purchasing a new house. They always had our best interests at heart and they knew all the ins and outs of the process of buying and selling a house. Their advice was phenomenal and they were always kind and easy to work with. We have full confidence in their expertise and care.”

-- Karen H., May 2019

“Susan and Toby were hard-working and offered great suggestions which we implemented for making the home ready for potential buyers. My husband and I appreciate their perseverance and patience throughout the entire process. They navigated well through some challenging cultural constraints and provide a timely response to questions and comments. They gave some good referrals for services we needed for the house sale as well. We are grateful for their help, honesty, and hard work and successful sale of our house during extraordinary circumstances.”

“Working with Toby Klebenov of Hammond Residential proved to be the best part of the sale of my Newton home, summer 2018. During a time that was one of the most stressful in my life, Toby was supportive, highly competent and quickly able to develop timelines for a timely sale, move tasks forward without issue, maintain a professional attitude and demeanor at all times, and simply provide me with the most comfortable relationship possible given the circumstances. I couldn't have done it without her and recommend that you call Toby Klebenov of Hammond for any and all home sales.  It's quite a remarkable experience with proven, highly successful results.  I know because I am one!"

-- Leslie J., July 2018

“We could not be more pleased with the service provided by Toby during the sale of our condo.  She conducted thorough research before suggesting the listing price; she used every resource available to aggressively market our property; she stayed in constant communications with us throughout the entire process.  Toby’s easygoing manner and calm demeanor was a definite plus during price negotiations.  

“We would highly recommend Toby to anyone looking to buy or sell a property.  She is a consummate professional who gets the job done.”

-- Marina G., February 2018

“We have worked with Toby Klebenov for more than 14 years, including three different real estate transactions, two purchases and a sale.

“Toby is a stellar Realtor, thoroughly professional, experienced, knowledgeable, and strong on attention to detail.

“We could not recommend Toby more highly.”

-- Mary and Steve S., November 2017

“It was wonderful working with Toby. She helped me sell my house and find a condo. She understood exactly what I was looking for and managed my sale with minimal inconvenience. She respected my time and privacy while being proactive when needed. It was overall a great experience.”

-- Peter Z., November 2017

“Toby Klebenov is a consummate professional -- exactly the person we needed when we decided to sell our house. Toby guided us through the entire process, with accurate knowledge and insight into what it meant for us to sell our house. She knows the real estate market in our area and what buyers are looking for. That she is also a sympathetic and thoughtful person was an added bonus. A friend recommended her to us and I would recommend her to anyone selling their house or condo.”

-- Roslyn F., November 2017

“As with all interactions and transactions it is the relationships that determine success and enjoyment of the outcome. Toby was a great partner in our journey and decision, and her experience really showed during those times when the right question or perspective was needed. She was able to work with other Realtors, negotiate and schedule access that met our needs, and, when our offer was accepted for our new home, her working relationships with the seller's agent, our offer and closing attorney were critical to navigate a few complex and sensitive issues. We are fortunate to have had Toby working alongside in a very collaborative way. At each step she was great at teaching us, providing perspective and context, and was always supportive and positive.”

-- Helen S. and Greg A., March 2017

"Toby helped us sell our house and she was extremely knowledgeable about the area as well as the current market. Throughout the process she was always professional and honest, and very responsive to any questions we had. She was a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend her.”

-- Lin A., October 2016

"After living in the same home for 45 years, moving was traumatic. Fortunately, we chose Toby as our broker. She possesses all of the knowledge and skills one expects from a competent broker.  Additionally, she provided exceptional guidance and assistance, cooperating with our attorney and the buyers' broker and attorney, working with a moving consultant, managing necessary permits, inspections, etc.  Importantly for nervous sellers, she is a good listener, always responding to our phone calls and emails promptly, usually within one hour or less.  Not only did Toby impress us, we believe she impressed the buyers as well.”

--Joseph R., August 2014

“I interviewed several recommended Realtors from other companies to help me sell my childhood home, and I selected Toby without hesitation. Her expertise and experience allowed me to keep this complex process moving quickly and smoothly and I received numerous high offers for the house. Toby is an excellent communicator, and was quick to respond to my questions and provide updates. I greatly appreciated her calm demeanor and sense of humor in the months we worked together. I give her my highest recommendation.”

-- Jane, July 2014

"My husband and I knew we liked Toby when we met her during an open house in our neighborhood. She was efficient, knowledgeable but not pushy. So when we were ready to sell, our first thought was to call her. It was the best thing we did. She guided us through the process of staging our house for sale with respect and expertise. She thoughtfully researched and developed a selling price that reflected our needs and the surrounding area. But the best news was when our house sold within four days of going on the market!

"Toby is a true professional and a thoroughly nice person. You will be making a big mistake if you do not use her as your Realtor. She has our highest praise and gratitude."

-- Sheri M.and Stan C., October 2013

"Toby did a great job coordinating the sale of my condo (advertising, open house, our requirements for selling, etc.).

"She was on top of everything, very professional, thorough, communicated everything promptly and was punctual for all appointments (of which there were quite a few).

"Toby gets my highest recommendation, I wouldn’t hesitate for a second in working with her again."

-- Bruce G., October 2013

"Moving to the Boston area from out of state on a tight time schedule seemed overwhelming. Toby was real estate agent extraordinaire in our search for a condo which would meet our needs. Her diligence, professionalism, honesty, and great personality made it a pleasure to work with her. And, her attention to detail in assisting with every aspect of the purchase made it happen!"

-- Cheryl and John N., September 2013

“With Toby’s help and expertise we were able to sell our condo in less than a week! Due to a slow market finding a new home took some more time. Toby made sure that we didn’t rush into anything and she took note of every detail that we mentioned during our house tours so that when we found our house it was everything that we wanted. Her patience and warm personality made the whole process as stress-free as possible.“

-- Jennifer P., December 2012

“In the past 10 years we have moved 5 times and with each move, we bought and sold a home. While we had the very good fortune of having great agents with each of these moves, Toby Klebenov was by far the best agent we have ever had work for us. We have recommended Toby to two friends in the past year and full-heartedly recommend her to you.”

-- Robert and Evgenia F., December 2012

"Toby was simply outstanding during our home search.  She was thorough and a great resource of local and neighborhood information.  She even helped us meet our new neighbors before we even moved in!  She was a real partner as we looked for a new home." 

-- Edward and Hannah M., December 2012

“We looked on and off for a condo over a period of a few years, not in a hurry as we loved our house and wanted to move only if we found something we loved equally.

“Working with Toby was a pleasure: she showed us only properties that met our specs; she never pressured us in any way; she was instantly responsive to our calls; and she took care of every detail and headache when we found the place we wanted. Once the decision was made, Toby acted swiftly to get our house sold in timely manner.

“My husband and I found Toby to be always gracious, never pushy and totally professional through-out our dealings with her.”
