GET TO KNOW OUR TEAM

We have the most productive, service–oriented real estate team in the state line area!

Each team member specializes in one segment of the real estate transaction process communicating through a state of the art client care system. You can’t be a “Jack of all trades” and expect to do each task well, right? Instead, we work together, every day, figuring ways to better serve you, our real estate client!

Success comes with that zeal as team Sold On Toni is currently selling 50 times the number of homes of the average local real estate agent! You know what that means for you as a home seller or buyer? Expertise. And when it’s your home, don’t you deserve to work with the local experts?

Toni VanderHeyden

team leader

I’m Toni Vander Heyden, Team Leader for the team, Sold On Toni, at Keller Williams Realty Signature. Get the play on words? We sell a lot of houses in the state line area…but more importantly, our team’s endeavor is that you are Sold on Us!
After many, many years in business in our town, I have learned an important concept: Let each individual on our team do what they enjoy, and it won’t ever feel like work. That’s why we are a team.
12 years in real estate means a lot of happy people giving our name to a lot of friends and family members needing real estate help. Over the years we’ve grown from one agent to this remarkable, power house of a team!
Keller Williams Realty gives my team the support, education, and tools to help you, our clients, achieve your goals in Residential, Commercial and Agricultural real estate sales and purchases. Thank you for the opportunity. We want you Sold On Toni, too!
