In 1980, Anthony “Tony” founded Bottone Realty Group, Inc. and it has been going strong ever since! He prides himself on the atmosphere he created of agents that truly work together as a family to give their customers the best response and friendly and effective customer service.

For the next 42 years and counting, Tony has helped countless buyers find their dream homes and sellers sell their homes. He has sold out over 15 ENTIRE developments and closed very difficult multi-million dollar commercial deals as well as selling small bungalows for much, much less. No matter the scope of the project, Tony goes “All-In”. You will NEVER meet another person with more enthusiasm, determination, and stellar work ethic than Tony Bottone.
