A hundred years ago, the landowner and family patriarch Ion Toma worked the rich Transylvanian soil in the Kingdom of Romania. Unfortunately, after World War II the communists were successful in banishing King Michael I and seizing all private property, including the Toma family estate. Decades Later, Ion's grandson, Cornel followed in his grandfather's footsteps by working the land and becoming the manager of a large agricultural community. However, because of the tyranny of the communist regime, Cornel and his wife fled their homeland for freedom in the United States. Today, Cornel's two sons carry on the family tradition in real estate through Toma partners.
The Inspiration for Toma Partners came to me while I was having lunch with my friend and older brother, Ben. As he described the common practices of brokerages, I began to realize how privileged I was to be the brother of a Realtor I could trust. I thought to myself, “There should be a company that treats everyone like a member of the family.” Shortly thereafter, we founded the only family-owned, luxury real estate company in Arizona. – Mihai Toma
