Buyer Testimonials

At Hilton Head Real Estate Partners, we understand that the purchase or sale of property may well be the most significant financial transaction of your life. For many clients, those outcomes will extend far into the future, impacting not only themselves but future generations. Real estate is a major investment – and investing in real estate is a major responsibility. Doesn’t it make sense to be guided through this critical process by a team of recognized experts, rather than go it alone?


Buyer Testimonials

We were very fortunate to have Jo Anne & Tony Rizza as our buyer’s agents. We visited several times with the intention of purchasing when the time was right for us. They did a great job of educating us about purchasing and living on the Island. We were shown some truly wonderful properties in our budget which did serve to broaden our horizons. When we did choose, we knew it was perfect for our family. They are both so knowledgeable and were OUR partners from start to finish! Can’t rave enough about them. They are indeed called friends!

Diane & Gerry D (New Owners, Queens Grant/Palmetto Dunes)


My Husband and I had a wonderful experience with Jo Anne and Tony Rizza. They were knowledgeable, patient, resourceful and extremely helpful. They didn’t push us to buy when we weren’t ready and they were really flexible with our schedules. They were understanding of our concerns and provided us with the information we needed to move forward in the buying process. We would highly recommend the Rizzas to those of all ages regardless of what type of real estate you’re in the market for.

Felicia and Spencer C. (New Owners, Midpoint, Bluffton)


I highly recommend Jo Anne and Tony to anyone buying or selling. When initially looking for houses for sale, we spoke to a few realtors, including Jo Anne. She stuck out to us because you could tell from the beginning just how caring and sincere she is. Jo Anne and Tony truly want the best for you. Their first priority is you, and what is going to make you happy. They have gone over the top for us during the whole process. This was our first house we bought, and Jo Anne did everything she could to assist us. She was always available to talk things over and answer questions. If you are looking to buy a house, I truly believe you should talk to Jo Anne and Tony because they want to give you what YOU want and what is best for YOU.

Kaylee W. (New homeowner, The Farm at Buckwalter, Bluffton)


Jo Anne and Tony were very helpful. Jo Anne responded very quickly to all of our inquiries about the specific condo we wanted to purchase. She dealt with the out of state Owner regarding the estate sale and communicated with us every detail as the sale progressed. Her negotiating skills helped us purchase this condo at a very reasonable price which then allowed us to fully remodel. Jo Anne and her husband, Tony, are well connected on Hilton Head Island and provided us with contractors to complete the remodeling of our condo. I would highly recommend them.

Carol & Walt P. (New Owners, Compass Point at Broad Creek Landing/Hilton Head Island)


Jo Anne and Tony helped us find our new home in just one visit, as we relocated from Michigan. They listened to our list of requirements and priorities, offered several properties, always came prepared, and were quick to respond to any questions or phone calls. They make a good team, as they compliment one another. We highly recommend Jo Anne and Tony and hope to stay friends for life!

Laurie & Bob B. (New Owners, Barton’s Run/Bluffton)


We lived outside the country and we were looking to settle in this area. We were very lucky to find Jo Anne and Tony Rizza via the Google network. We had a fairly good idea of what we were looking for, and Jo Anne and Tony made every effort to show us houses that fell into that framework, but they also expanded our horizon with carefully chosen properties that had other attributes. This helped us to become familiar with the market and what it had to offer. The Rizza’s are not only very pleasant and easy to deal with, they are true professionals. We found them very approachable and responsive to any questions or concerns we had. We had some issues with our previous home sale which caused uncertainty and delays for over two years. Under these circumstances their patience was truly admirable. They know their business and their answers to our questions were always accurate, honest and instantaneous. We could not be more pleased with their service which extends beyond just the mechanics of buying a property. There is a personal interest in smoothing the sometimes rocky road to success when searching for a home. They truly wanted us to be happy which made the sometimes tiresome process of searching for a suitable home enjoyable. We are moved in now, but our relationship with Jo Anne and Tony continues with ever ready helpful tips and advice from them, and we feel totally comfortable asking them for advice. We highly recommend them.

Heide & Jule M. (New Owners, Sun City)

Jo Anne & Tony are excellent, they knew the type of home we were interested in and made sure we had the latest listings. The home we purchased had just come on the market, Jo Anne immediately gave us a call which gave us an advantage over other buyers. After the purchase they recommended a contractor who we hired, Tony checked on our home project, and was very helpful in the completion of the work. We now live in our dream home, because of Jo Anne & Tony’s search in our behalf, and the continued assistance after the sale, now that is full service!

Brian & Barbara D. (New Owners, Hilton Head Plantation/Hilton Head Island)

I contacted Jo Anne and Tony through one of their listings. When that property didn’t work out they showed us others. They listened carefully and were able to identify our real needs and tailored our search appropriately. We finally located a great property which was a short sale. Their patience and persistence helped this transaction work out to our satisfaction.

Since we currently live in Atlanta, and their was extensive repair and maintenance that had to be done, Tony referred contractors to us and supervised the work being done. This all happened after the closing and was a very special bonus. I felt very comfortable that I was in good hands.

I highly recommend Jo Anne and Tony Rizza to anyone listing or buying in the Bluffton – Hilton Head area.

Kay and Mike S.     (New Owners, Rose Hill Plantation/Bluffton)

What a great pair of Agents. Jo Anne and Tony are outstanding professionals who were super helpful in helping us find a home. They were well prepared and knowledgeable of the homes in the area. They were our buyer agent and really looked out for OUR interest. And having two agents gives you two sets of real estate minds. They went above and beyond at what an agent usually does and took care of things when we could not be there. We highly recommend Jo Anne and Tony for any of your Real Estate needs. Trust me, you won’t go wrong.

John & Susan M.      (New Owners, Island West/ Bluffton)

Jo Anne and Tony are a great team and were so helpful and patient with us through the whole house buying process.  They were referred to us by a friend and we would highly recommend them.  They answered every question,  replying sometimes at 10pm.  They helped make the process less painful and are still helping us even after the sale with any problem we have they can always refer some one to us.  We would recommend them to anyone buying or selling a home.
