Since the inception of their real estate brokerage in 2008, Ben and Ani Toma have always worked together, establishing the business and raising their five lovely girls. Ani Toma has passionately served Century 21 Toma Partners starting with marketing, staging, recruiting, coaching/training roles, and rose to CEO of the company. A Graphic Design graduate of the Art Institute of Phoenix with 23 years of experience in advertising/design, Ani has a unique set of skills to run a real estate brokerage. Previously, Ani ran her own Design consulting business where she developed many of her business skills. In 2001, Ani was awarded with two Addy Awards, early on in her design career. Even though her artsy side is a strength she continues to leverage, she quickly realized that design only came second to her love for coaching, team-building and running their family company. She attributes much of her leadership skills from raising her daughters with grit and tenacity. The results speak for themselves: the company has more than tripled in agent count and revenue in the last five years under her leadership. Ani's role as CEO is well earned and allows the C21TP family team to continue to provide the highest level of customer service, commitment to excellence, and family culture for which the company has become known.
Ani also serves as Ladies Ministry Director at her local church and is involved in both global and local charities, such as the Benita International Organization, Phoenix Inner-City Kids, Center for AZ Policy and Choices Pregnancy Center. In her free time, Ani enjoys traveling, hiking, reading and anything that includes spending time with Ben and their five amazing girls.
