We received extraordinary service from Mona Rafey throughout our search process through to closing. Mona listened to our preferences and then showed us an array of properties to refine our search criteria. We did this successfully both in person and virtually. We made our home purchase during a very hot and competitive market. Mona was an excellent advisor on bidding strategy. When we lost our first two homes to higher bidders, she then went to work and arranged a private transition. We were able to come to terms where all parties are satisfied. Mona's relationship management skills were exceptional during this process. Mona and a law firm of her recommendation ran a flawless settlement process. It was a well oiled machine. Once we closed, it was on to advice on decorators and how to transfer utility bills. Mona never missed a detail. Mona is highly professional and dedicated to her clients. My wife and I recommend her with enthusiasm and without qualification.

Thank you David, Toni, Mona, and the ENTIRE Zarghami Group for all you have done for our family! We once had a dream in our heart to relocate from the sandy shores of Florida to the beautiful mountains of North Carolina. It was clear from the onset of our dream that we needed an integrity driven, powerhouse team to help us. We found that and so much more in working with the Zarghami Group. I’m still in awe at how smooth the entire process was in selling our waterfront condominium for ABOVE asking price. As someone who requires some extra reassurance and certainty, the team ALWAYS made themselves available and their response time was incredible. This team is the gold standard in real estate. In fact, they are in a league all their own - no comparisons necessary. The Zarghami Group made our dream of a new life possible. They lead with their heart AND they have the necessary systems and procedures to get top dollar. Their world-class marketing, photography, and property description work together precisely to drown out the noise and get your property SOLD. We are very excited for this next chapter in our life and we are forever grateful to the Zarghami Group for making this possible. In fact, we have grown to trust and love this team like family. Spread the word… The Zarghami Group is the REAL deal in real estate.

Mona helped me with my investment property in Sarasota and couldn’t have made it easier for me. As a realtor in NJ I can appreciate good service and she went above and beyond helping me secure a tenant and making the process and seamless as possible. Put all my trust in her as I wasn’t familiar with the area and after showing some people the location, and deal we got all was impressed. Look forward to purchase future investments with Mona!

Mona Refay is not only the best realtor in Sarasota but the best realtor period ! Even with how crazy the real estate market is right now and all of her clients , she will always find the time to take or return calls , texts , emails , etc , . Mona goes above and beyond for all of her clients she doesn't treat you like a number . I don't think there was a single question I had for Mona that she wasn't able to answer . Also her expertise in the Sarasota area and housing market are also unmatched . She was also extremely helpful not only finding a new home but also in many other areas . She has helped me with the mortgage , the closing , finding electricians , landscapers , plumbers you name it and Mona has been there to help ! I fully 100% recommend the Zarghami Group & Mona Refay

I can’t say enough about Mona Refay, she is an amazing agent... I needed a referral agent for my very good friends who are moving from the north. I was recommended to call Mona and from the initial phone call I knew my client/friends would be in the very best hands. She kept me informed every step of the way, she’s professional, smart, knows her areas, but most of all, my clients absolutely loved her and couldn’t have been happier with her service. If you need a referral agent in the Sarasota/Venice FL area, Mona Refay is your girl!

We reached out to the Zhargami Group (Toni specifically) because of their stellar reviews on Google, Yelp, etc. Toni indicated that she was more of a "sell-side" realtor, so she turned us over to Mona Refay for assistance with potential home and investment property purchases. Best referral EVER! Mona was an absolute pleasure to work with - caring, responsive, hard-working, knowledgeable - everything we could want in a real estate agent, especially in a geographical area with which we weren't familiar. Mona repeatedly went above and beyond the call of duty in what became a complicated transaction for an older investment property. Mona took the time to show us the area, scope out homes for us, work with multiple other professionals to pull together the deal, engage and oversee repairmen, deal with a sellers' agent who was hard to track down, and even interact with the homes' tenants on our behalf before we had time to reach out to them. We cannot tell you how valuable Mona was in this process -- our first investment property ever! -- and what a stark contrast she was to the lousy agent we had for a home purchase we were making in another state at the same time the Florida transaction was occurring. We cannot recommend Mona and the Zhargami Group highly enough, and we will 100% be looking to Mona to help us with potential future purchases in the Sarasota area, both investment properties and, one day, a primary residence!

Mona was absolutely top notch! Hands down the best realtor that I have ever worked with! Having purchased many commercial and residential properties in my career and have worked with several realtors, she takes the cake! Always responds immediately and was very diligent in helping us secure our new home in Sarasota. No question that if we purchase other properties in the area in the future , Mona will be the very first call! She is worth her weight in gold and I truely hope that her employer realizes the value that she brings to the table. Thanks again for stepping through this process with us, we are forever grateful.

Working with Mona was amazing. From the moment we met her we knew we had found the perfect realtor for us. Moving from NH to FL was stressful but she helped make the entire process seamless. She listened to what we were looking for and worked hard to find exactly what we wanted. When any of our friends or family are ready to give up the cold New England winter and move to FL I will be sure they work with Mona!
