“Thank you to all our clients for your business.
Your continued support is the pinnacle of our success."
You did a job above and beyond the call of duty! I really appreciate all your talent and effort. Thank you so much! Roz
We would like to take the opportunity top thank the entire Tomashowski Team for a wonderful experience buying our mountain home. Tony and I had been looking for over a year. We contacted several other agents in the area and received no phone calls back. We were discouraged and gave up for a while. Then, we found a flyer, and once we contacted Angie and Garry, the process was effortless. They listened to what we wanted and knew exactly where to take us. Any issue that arose, the Team was able to professionally and quickly deal with it to our satisfaction. We now have the cabin we were looking for and consider the Tomashowski’s not only our agents, but our neighbors and friends. Sincerely, Angela & Tony Branco
We just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you, so very much, for the expeditious and successful way you both handled the sale of our cabin in Lee Canyon. We listed with you at Mt. Charleston Realty on a Thursday afternoon. Monday you called and told us it had been shown twice over the weekend, resulting in offers from both prospective buyers! We officially signed off on one of those offers that very afternoon. Outstanding! We could not have hoped for, or even custom-ordered, a quicker, or smoother, process. We have bought and sold properties before, but this was by far the most impressive handling by any agent. Not only do you have up close, personal knowledge of the Mt. Charleston communities, conditions, and uniqueness of the properties there, but you truly are the best at what you do. We would most definitely recommend you to anyone who might ask us for a referral to the best realtors in the area! Our best wishes to you for improved market conditions in southern Nevada, and continued good work and successes! Gratefully, Donald and Connie Van Horne
Last year we decided to search for a house in Nevada or Arizona, originally looking in the Laughlin – Bullhead City area. The real estate agents we encountered didn’t seem interested in zeroing in on our needs, particularly when it came to mortgage financing. When we switched our search to Las Vegas and discovered Katie, we found an agent who asked good questions, knew how to listen, and zeroed in on the wishes and needs of a couple of retired professors. She was also a good teacher about all the hoops and intricate regulations that complicate the purchase of a home here in Nevada. The following quote is from a note I made in my email address book after our first few meetings with Katie:
She was quite professional and knowledgeable. If she didn’t know the answer to one of our many questions, she said so and would find out the answer. Her follow-up emails were detailed, precise, appropriately brief but thorough, and provided additional, helpful information that we hadn’t asked for. She is quick, sharp, and an excellent multi-tasker.
Katie is the second generation in the family business, Mt. Charleston Realty, Inc. Across the years they have vetted a now well-established network of professionals in related areas (construction, financing, insurance, etc.) – experts who can be relied upon to be equally responsive and professional. We always felt like a valued client rather than simply one customer among many. This was especially true since we couldn’t be in Nevada for the closing. Katie (and her family colleagues) held our hands throughout the closing details, and went above and beyond all expectations. For example, since all the utilities hadn’t been turned on during the official home inspection, she and her Dad came back (after we had returned to our Oregon home), checked those systems and appliances that required utilities, and assessed and commented with detail on the conditions of the appliances, and gave suggestions on how to resolve problematic areas.
We can summarize our experience in a single word: TRUST. In every aspect of buying our Las Vegas home, we felt we could trust Katie to represent our interests in a knowledgeable, professional, and responsive way. ~ Ed and Jean
We were about to give up and just walk away from our dream home, when one of us got laid off. Then we talked to our neighbors who were doing a short sale with Tomashowski Team. They told them our situation and said for us to call them, so we did. They came to our home and talked to us and were very up-front and honest ~ and gave us hope. Katie and the Tomashowski Team did a "GREAT JOB". Katie kept us informed regulary and was very supportive . We finished the short sale on Friday, August 31st . That took a lot of stress away and we can get our lives back on track . We will miss our home very much, but things will get better . Thank you so much Katie and Tomashowski Team. You were great . Glad to have worked with you and know you . Ron and Jody
Thanks to the entire Tomashowski Team at Mt Charleston Realty, but especially to you, for your outstanding representation on our behalf in searching, purchasing, working the entire short sale process, and at closing on our house in the Aliante area of North Las Vegas. Your honesty, professionalism, hard work, diligent research, and excellent advice and knowledge of the real estate market and its complicated system, made our part of the process easy, stress free and uncomplicated. You always had the answers at your fingertips and always anticipated our questions and concerns, helping us at every turn along the way and followed up on every detail every time. Having you as our Realtor was the smartest decision we ever made. You are, without a doubt, the best Realtor we have ever had in our lifetime of many different home purchases. I would recommend you and your team to anyone and everyone without any hesitation whatsoever. Thank you again for everything. Sincerely, Colonel Paul & Jan Miehle.
I have known Katie Tomashowski for several years now, working in the real estate business myself, in addition to employing her as my realtor. All of my immediate family has at one time purchased a Las Vegas home using Mt Charleston Realty and Katie Tomashowski. I am proud to have added my growing family to this list. After many years of being in the business and knowing what to expect as an escrow agent in this ever changing market, buying can be a traumatic experience. No matter how you swing it purchasing a house is overwhelming but with Katie I felt secure, informed, and most importantly, taken care of. If I had a question, she got me a prompt answer and her follow through was impeccable. Her response time was immediate so there was never any lingering items or last minute paperwork that had to be handled.
Bank owned properties can be a grueling escrow process and is certainly a nail biting experience for all parties involved. I know that Katie’s persistence with the listing agent and title company are what made my transaction go much smoother.
I love working with Katie and her family! I will continue to do so in the future and always recommend her to friends and family. I’m on to the next step of renting out my previous Las Vegas home with Mt. Charleston Realty as my managing company and I know my family is in good hands. Nicole Yuhos and Bert Barber
My wife and I have purchased and sold homes of all sizes throughout the United States. Buying or selling a home in a new location is extremely stressful and can be traumatic instead of an enjoyable experience unless you have a great realtor. The Tomashowski Team is just that -- GREAT! Working with Angie was a pleasure from our first introduction to closing. Her knowledge and insight of the area and industry was incredible. Angie's professional demeanor made our purchase experience the best we have ever had. Garry even came to our aid during the inspection stage and shared his expertise, providing closure to some issues that we were concerned about. Without hesitation, the Tomashowski Team went "above and beyond" what you would expect any good realtor to do. We are absolutely satisfied with our purchase and the results. Angie Tomashowski and the Team are TERRIFIC! Don't even think about purchasing a home in the Mt. Charleston area without them! Read & Carol Schrotel
For the last several months I have been working with Katie Tomashowski in an effort to purchase a new home. The unconventional avenues of the current real estate market were overwhelming for my family and I, due to our novice experience, however; Katie made the process easy and much less stressful. My family and I are now in our new Indian Springs home. It took very little time and Katie was available for even the simplest matters and silliest questions. I wouldn't work with another real estate agent. Thank you Katie and your wonderful family for making this the enjoyable experience buying a new home should be. Lara Frank
This was Corey and my first home buying experience. Thanks to Katie and Brandon, it was successful and we love our new Las Vegas home! Katie was so efficient and I was very impressed with how quickly she'd get back to us with answers to any questions we may have ad. She did an exceptional job at guiding us through this process and was also good about not pushing us in one direction or another. Her unending patience with our indecisiveness was what made our home buying experience enjoyable and stress free. We were so grateful that both her and Brandon were alwasy ready and willing to open more doors for us to ensure that we were making the best decision for us. Thank you both so much for everything!
Nohea and Corey Malden
It was an extreme pleasure working with Katie. As being a first time home buyer, Katie made it easy. Katie was very knowledgeable, professional, and helpful throughout my home buying experience. She answered every question I had, and made sure I was comfortable with everything throughout my transaction. I would have been lost without her. In the end I was able to get the house of my dreams for a great price! I recommend Katie to everyone I know. So if your buying/selling or even just looking for a Las Vegas home I would go and see Katie first. Thank you so much Katie! Chris Johnson
When I first considered buying a cabin on Mt. Charleston in 2001, I contacted Angie (from a flyer) and asked her opinion about the cabin I was interested in. Although she was not the listing agent or my realtor, she was kind enough to take the time and share her knowledge about the mountain, and give me her professional opinion about the cabin I wanted. Thereafter, having lived on Mt. Charleston for nine years, I learned of Angie and Garry’s reputation for being honest, down to earth, knowledgeable, and professional. When it came time for me to sell my cabin, I would have used them as my listing agents, but my boyfriend at the time was a realtor. I knew, however, that they would be the ones who would bring me a buyer, and they did. Working with Angie and Garry was a pleasure. They are highly professional with warm, friendly and understanding manners. I will certainly refer to them and recommend others to contact them for their buying or selling needs. Denise Giannionto
"Ive got to say Katie Tomashowski is without a doubt the best realty agent that I have ever had the privilege to do business with in the Las Vegas valley.I have lived in this area for over twenty years and have bought and sold multiple properties. I just wished I had used her and Mt. Charleston Realty for all of them. She showed outstanding professionalism along with lots of knowledge from the beginning to the end and also after the purchase of the property I chose. It's great to do business with some real locals. Katie and Mt. Charleston Realty will be highly recommended to all I know in the future." Tim McLemore
"We truly appreciate all your help, time, efforts and going the extra mile in order to sell our house. May God bless you and your family." Spencer and Gladys Chung
"I have worked with Angie and Garry twice (and now Katie!) and couldn't be happier with their expertise, work ethic and passion for their profession. They patiently help their clients with every step and go well above and beyond what would be expected of realtors. I felt like they were family by the end of the process. They couldn't be recommended more highly!" Amy Litman
"Regarding List and Sale of 2196 Via Dulcedo, Mt. Charleston, Cabin at Camp Lady of the Snows. Garry and Angie are to be commended for the exceptional job they did in listing and selling my cabin at Mt. Charleston. They promptly returned all of my phone calls and kept me well informed of all aspects of the transaction by phone and e-mail. Garry also went above and beyond the call of duty in meeting vendors and working with them overseeing the jobs to make sure the work was done in a timely and satisfactory manner. Garry and Angie were a pleasure to work with and I would strongly recommend their services to anyone wanting to acquire a property or list a property." Barbara Nelson Realty and Management
"Thank you so much for everything. We couldn't have done any of this without you. We appreciate you." Jimmy and Lisa
"I would like to say that anyone looking for a place to call home needs to use Katie Tomashowski. She was "Great!", she would put up with my constant questions and comments, and still have a beatiful smile. She did the best to get me the best deal possible and make sure I was happy along the way. I would recomend her for any of your needs, and will always come back for more. Thank you Katie you are truely the best." Jake McLemore
"As a military family, my wife and I often have conflicting schedules with little time together. We were fortunate to work with someone that always made time for us even if it was last minute. Katie made us feel like we were the only clients she was working with even though I knew she was just as busy as we were. She has the ability to remember every little detail we mentioned about everything it seemed. We are first time homebuyers and the whole process can seem overwhelming and intimidating. Katie was great at dumbing everything down enough so I could understand it. We are extremely pleased with her professionalism and promptness." Ryan & Alia Jensen
"John and I knew which house we wanted. We had watched the previous owners vacate the home and waited patiently for the For Sale sign to go up. We soon learned that purchasing a foreclosure property is not for the impatient. We had several issues, all of them out of our control; however, each one affecting us in a major way. Katie was amazing. We would call her all hours of the day and sometimes at night and I think every weekend. She was at our house several times helping us sign paperwork, she would meet us in central locations, and we were very grateful when her dad stepped in to help with before the inspection. The entire process took a little over two months, it was a grueling time, but I was and am still grateful for Katie’s patience and positive attitude. When it felt like we could just walk away from a nonresponsive seller, Katie reminded us that we were almost to the finish line; we would soon have our home. I would definitely recommend Katie, and her entire, family to anyone looking to purchase a home. Thank you to the entire Tomashowski Family." Virginia Lara and John Yuhos III
"First of all we are so thankful to have such amazing people like the Tomashowski family in our lives. My husband and I set out to purchase our first home and Katie was by our sides the entire time. As first time home buyers every step of the way is a little bit frightening but Katie made sure to keep us comfortable and fully understanding every little detail. Now with this process all over I think we're experts too :) Honestly, Katie has been amazing! Now we are finally in our first home and it couldn't feel any better! Thanks so much for going above and beyond and working late hours just to get it all finished! You're the best!" Junae and Jim Barnhart
"I like to call Angie my "Dream Girl" because she can make dreams come true. She made my dream of a winter home in Las Vegas an easy and enjoyable experience. She is a Cold Creek expert, knows the pros and cons of each property and worked hard to find a perfect match for my needs. I didn't think it could be done, but she handled the entire purchase long-distance by phone, fax, and email. Including scheduling inspections and being there in my absence. Angie paid attention to all the little details, pulled the whole transaction together and we closed without a hitch!" Nancy Thompson
"Angie and Katie did an amazing job of guiding me, as a first time-home buyer, through the wasteland of foreclosures and the dangerous pitfalls of offers and financing in this post-economic-crash world. With their guidance, I am now living in a wonderful home. I would not be where I am without the benefit of their comprehensive knowledge of the Las Vegas Valley real estate market and their thorough understanding of what it takes to find and buy just the right house. Thank you!" Nanette Brennan
"We just want to thank you again for all of the time and patience that you provided to us during the past few months of “cabin” seeking in Cold Creek. Even after a couple of prospects did not work out you never once caused us to feel that we were the “difficult” clients that we thought of ourselves! We are very impressed with your friendly yet professional business manner that you maintained through many anxious moments throughout the entire process. We also feel very fortunate to have found that you also have access to so many services that we may find that we will need to make some necessary repairs and inspections. I can’t tell you have comforting that is to us also.
We are excited to begin the journey with our new cabin and will be in touch with you soon to have you sell our other property too." Sincerely, Larry and Diane Kelly
"A testimonial to the commitment and professionalism of Mt. Charleston Realty. During these hard times, and in such a bad economy, Angie & Garry Tomashowski sold our lot in one day; the sale closed less than a month. They then sold our house not long after, saving us from possible foreclosure. We have one lot left to sell, and we are confident in their ability to find buyers and look after our interests as though they were their own. Knowing the mountain lifestyle and understanding their client's need for peace of mind, Garry and Agie Tomashowski have a unique perspective on rural and mountain properties that has made them our Realtors for life. Thanks Angie and Garry." Phyllis Moats
"I wanted to express my gratitude for all that you have done for me and my family. Right from the first time we met Angie at my Dad's property, shortly after his unexpected passing, Angie was caring, compassionate, and helped me through a very difficult time. Angie and Garry took care of everything, giving us peace of mind. Being back here in New York, we felt confident leaving Angie and Garry in charge of our property. Mt. Charleston Realty, Inc. turned a difficult and troubling time into an opportunity for our family to move on with our lives and leave our worries behind. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all that you have done for us. I would definitely use Mt. Charleston Realty, Inc. as my agent again if the need arose, as well as refer you to anyone who may be looking for a reputable real estate agent. My attorney strongly advised us to not use a real estate agent who was representing both the buyer and seller stating there was no way that the agent could have both buyer and seller's best interests in mind. Against my attorney's strong advice I went against his advice. Angie and Garry proved my attorney wrong. Thank you again for all of the hard work and effort that you and Garry put in to selling this property at Corn Creek." Heidi and Mike Bazicki
"We recently sold our property through Mt. Charleston Realty. Both Garry and Angie did a terrific job of handling all aspects of the sale that, at times, had some rocky moments. They even went “above and beyond” on several occasions to ensure that the sale went through and that I received the maximum value for my property. I have known Angie and Garry for many years and I can recommend them without hesitation or reservation as Realtors® who truly know the Mt. Charleston market better than anyone I have encountered. They are ethical, above-board, trustworthy and knowledgeable. When considering buying or selling a property up at Mt. Charleston, it’s nice to know that you have people like Garry and Angie in your corner; especially during these difficult economic times." George Stamos
"Angie did a fabulous job selling a lot that I was discouraged about and ready to give up on. She employed a creative marketing technique that proved successful. I totally recommend her for her professionalism and outstanding client service." Janet B.
"Angie and Garry represent a magical community in a soaring way that launches you into the future on Cloud 9 but with your feet solidly planted at the same time. They humbly manifest an array of attributes that make this possible: impeccable integrity, shared sensibilities about the majesty of nature, a broad knowledge base, easy accessibility, regional education via website, patience, home team appeal, understanding, grace, and genuine excitement for their future neighbors. If your destiny takes you to the nirvana that is Mt. Charleston, guardian angels await you." Dan Sussman, M.D., MBA
"We want to take this opportunity to thank you and Mt. Charleston Realty for doing such a professional job in the selling of our home. What we really appreciated was how concerned you were on our behalf. It made it so much easier for us. We are looking forward to this next new chapter in our lives, but we will always remember our wonderful times on Mt. Charleston and the special people like you and your family who will be part of our forever treasured memories." Andre and Rea Schweizer
"We just closed on a cabin in Kyle Canyon with the help of Angie Tomashowski. I could not have asked for a better real estate agent. She knows the market, worked very hard, and made our transaction seamless. I recommend Angie and Mt. Charleston Realty, Inc. without hesitation." Stephen M. Rice, Esq.
"Thank you for all the help and support you provided me on the recent sale of my home in Cold Creek Canyon. The wealth of knowledge and experience you bring to mountain properties, especially areas like Cold Creek where we run our power off of solar and generators is vital when it comes to helping buyers get appraisals, insurance and most important financing. The way you handled all the inspections, phone calls and associated paperwork on this sale was very much appreciated. After trying unsuccessfully for a year to sell my home prior to giving you the listing, I was amazed how fast I got results. Thanks again. " Mike Zech
"Angie sold our homes in Mt. Charleston. There were several challenges in the sales. Angie conducted herself in a very professional way that enabled both sales to be completed. We made an informed decision in selecting Angie and Garry and we were not disappointed. She is one-in-a-million and you can totally trust her." Ed and Shauna Smith
"We will probably not use you or Angie again since we are not use to high caliber professional treatment... the shock of courtesy and effectiveness left us in a coma...just kidding...all of U R Greeeeeaaat!" Jim Ward
"I am writing this open letter to express my thanks and appreciation to both Garry and Angie Tomashowski for all the work they have done and the help they provided resulting in the successful sale of both of my properties on Mt. Charleston. What I found as the distinguishing factor, when working with these two highly qualified professionals, is one simple fact that they listened. They listened to my unique circumstance, what my intentions and needs were, and they handled my business in a professional manner, as well as in a king, understanding,a nd cooperative spirit. I recognize that at times it took considerable patience on their part to work with me. Because of my attachment to that fine home I owned for 20 years on the mountain, I had considerable difficulty letting it go, even when it was the most fiscally responsible thing to do. I can honestly say that they always made me feel that my own interests were all that mattered to them, even when I kept changing my mind on what I wanted. I also felt lucky to have such a team, as Garry and Angie working for me, because of their individually unique and complimentary expertise. I consider Garry a formidable builder and craftsman, with exceptional ability to visualize and express ideas that are in concert with the dreams of potential home buyers. or ones who may want to build. This is an invaluable trait, and often not well understood, even when it is the emotional component that is the key factor in the buy/build/sell decision. Angie is a businesswoman with outstanding understanding of the market and house values, very good at taking care of all business details, and always follows through on her commitments. She also has superior communications and interpersonal skills that help tremendously during times of sensitive and delicate negotiations, and when practical realities need to be communicated. I found her always calm, level headed and well informed. Last, but in a way most importantly, I want to comment on the honesty and integrity of both Garry and Angie. The highly competitive nature of real estate business is well understood by us buyers and sellers. All of us had experiences,at one time or another, of being influenced by real estate agents in ways that may not have best served our interests. Garry and Angie both worked with me in a most professional manner, being very clear about their positions in our business relationship. I marveled how well they were able to present me with the facts, always looking to me for decisions, and being most reluctant to offer opinions. This was especially important - when selling both of my properties, because Garry and Angie represented both sides, the buyer and the seller. I am convinced that it was this integrity and honesty that resulted in my win-win transactions - that we all look to achieve, that we all find most satisfying. Once again I want to take this opportunity to thank Garry and Angie, wish them much success, and may they continue to live on and enjoy that magical place, Mt. Charleston - which I will miss." Paul Bodor
"We really appreciate the added value service you provided us during this past year. Our being on the road, away from the Mt. Charleston area, served to highlight how important it is that you were in the neighborhood to facilitate the successful marketing of our home. Thanks again." Tom Curl
"We are very thankful for your hard work and dedication during the sale of our cabin at Mt. Charleston. As a licensed real estate broker, it was a great help to have agents that not only specialized in property on the mountain, but also lives there. ...you really came through for us, despite all obstacles during this transaction. Because of this rare dedication and hard work, we had a very successful sale of our property." Bill and Pam Borinstein
"Please accept our thanks and gratitude for all your hard work and effort in finding a buyer and negotiating the sale of our house. The many extra items you handled so well were a great relief to us during the busy closing and move. Your professionalism was very much appreciated. We would be pleased to have you use us as a reference to any of your clients. Thanks again to both of you." Sam and Mary Cooper
"My wife and I wish to sincerely thank you for the exemplary service you recently provided us in our purchase of land. We have purchased a number of homes and parcels of land over the last 37 years and never found another realtor who stayed focused on what we wanted, found it for us and stayed with us during the total purchase process. It is our hope that we will purchase other land in the area in the future and plan to use you if you are willing as our agent. In closing, thank you for your professional assistance. Thank you!" D. Fisher
"Just a note to say thank you for your assistance in selling our property. Both of you took the extra time, effort and even spent your own money to assist us in the coordination and completion of items we physically were unable to perform due to a serious illness. Your professionalism was truly appreciated." Floyd and Audrey Davis
"I am writing this letter of thanks to Angie and Garry Tomashowski. My husband and I were really feeling lost while house hunting. It seemed like no one cared about what we were looking for, only how much money they could get from us. We went to many different real estate companies but just didn't feel comfortable with any of them.
We were driving home after another disappointing day when we saw a cute little house with a for sale sign in front of it. I told my husband, to pull over and let me get a flyer. The next day my husband called the number and talked to Angie. She set up an appointment the very next day. I fell in love with the house right away, but my mind was telling me there was no way they were going to give us this house at the price we wanted. Well, not only did Angie and Garry make a deal with the seller for us, but they also worked with our mortgage company to get us the best rate, the best terms, everything we needed - they handled.
Within two weeks we signed our papers and were moving into our new home. I never would have dreamed there were people out there who cared. I know we moved pretty fast on this deal and the Tomashowski's were probably pretty tired by the time it was all over, but I just want to say, it is people like the Tomashowski's that renew your faith in honest people. Right now my kids are out playing in their first real backyard. I can hear their laughter. I write this letter and all I can say is thank you. You are appreciated." Owolabi Family
"Just wanted to thank you for helping us find a new home. I have never dealt with real estate agents with such professionalism and such a personal touch. I wish I had listed my other home with you. I have never worked with a realtor before and felt like they were really working for me, like I felt when I was dealing with you. I tell everyone about what a great experience we had with you. You're wonderful, down to earth people. If I want to sell property again, I won't hesitate to call you. Again, thank you very much for everything." Ed and Georgia Kelly
"Thank you for going above and beyond your job for us. May God bless you and your family." Larry and Kim
