Tony Sanchez is our newest bilingual property manager for Reedy Creek Management Services, LLC. His main responsibilities include maintaining and improving tenant and owner relationships, leasing, communications, quality control, and reporting.

Tony is a native Spanish speaker from Dallas, Texas. Though he grew up in a Spanish-speaking household, he learned to speak fluent English from an early age. Outside of school, he would help out with the family business supervising and inspecting finished construction frameworks. It was this experience that inspired him to pursue a career in real estate.  After high school, Tony decided to join the Marine Corps as a reservist where he continues to work part time. He became a licensed real estate agent in June of 2022 and has since earned his Military Relocation Professional certificate (MRP) and New Home Sales Agent certificate (NHSA). Tony believes in continuous learning and development, so he's looking forward to expanding his expertise through more certification courses to provide the best property management service.

Tony is driven by his passion for real estate and property management. One of his long-term goals is to one day manage multiple properties of his own and build his real estate portfolio.
