Here is what you can expect from working with Tom:
As a recent graduate from Queen’s University having been accepted to the University of Toronto I was faced with the task of finding a place to live downtown Toronto. Looking for an option more comfortable than residence, finding my own apartment was the logical next step. Coming from a small town, followed by a university town (Kingston, ON) I had no idea of the competitive landscape of rental properties in Toronto. Contacting individual landlords was extremely difficult and uncomfortable, and many of the real estate agents that I contacted did not have my best interests in mind, and were unhelpful and unresponsive. This all changed when I contacted Tom. Tom was extremely prompt, and focused solely on finding an apartment that not only fit my taste, but my budget as well. Tom found three excellent apartments to view, and made the final decision extremely easy. He not only assisted in finding apartments, but was crucial in completing the paperwork and finalizing the lease agreement. Since making my decision, I could not be happier, my apartment is fantastic, and it’s thanks to Tom that the process of finding my new home was so easy. Apartments are hard to come by in the city but with Tom’s help this process can be easy for you too!
Moving to a new place can be difficult, especially when you are unfamiliar with it. This was a situation that I faced moving to Toronto to attend graduate school. Having grown up in a small town, and completed my undergraduate degree at Queen’s University in Kingston, I was totally unfamiliar with the city of Toronto and the real estate market that comes with it. I initially believed that finding an apartment downtown would be a simple task, I did not realize the low vacancy rates in the city, or the competitive market that comes with renting. Having Tom to help with the process of finding an apartment made things so simple. Rather than scanning unreliable websites Tom matched us with apartments that met our needs and price range. After compiling a “short list” of apartments Tom set up viewings for us and accompanied us to see the units. We then simply selected the apartment that was best for us and Tom took care of the rest, from contacting the landlord to finalizing the lease, he was there with us through the entire process and was immensely helpful. To anyone, specifically students or young people who are new to Toronto, you will need help in finding an apartment, and Tom is be your man. He will help you find your new home with ease.
We recently purchased a home that Tom was marketing through an exclusive listing. Despite representing both parties in the deal, we found Tom to be extremely professional, knowledgeable and honest. He was able to facilitate the negotiations effectively and enabled both parties to come away pleased with the result. In all of our follow-up interactions with Tom he has been pleasant, responsive and obviously very well organized. When it comes time for us to list this home, we will be looking for Tom's business card.
Tom was very helpful when finding our first place. He showed passion and an understanding of what we were looking for. He ensured we got what we expected and more. Tom was very honest and professional and made the process stress free. We look forward to using his services again in the future. Thank you Tom!
My brother and I were looking to purchase an investment property. When we met Tom we felt completely at ease right from the get go. He was very knowledgeable and patient to ensure we found the perfect house regardless of how long or how many properties we went to look at. He was very friendly and outgoing and took the time to research the market and share his insights with us allowing us to make the best decision. We are happy to say we found our perfect property and Tom’s ability to negotiate on our behalf gave us the best price. We would not hesitate to work with Tom again in future and would recommend him to all our family and friends.
This was our first home buying experience and my wife and I couldn’t be happier with having Tom as our realtor. He was able to take the process of buying a home and making it a very thorough, well laid out, stress free personal experience. He was able to narrow down what we were really looking for and picked the best options for us; even some that were commission free as they had met our criteria. Tom is very knowledgeable and wasable to bring up concerns we hadn't even thought of as new parents. Tom saved us from making a big mistake of getting into a bidding war with another couple over a house. This saved us allot of money as well as allowed us to find the perfect home. All in all we found it to be a very happy experience and will definitely be looking to call upon his expertise for our next purchase. There isn't any hesitation on our part for recommending Tom to ourfamily and friends knowing he will go above and beyond their expectations as a realtor.
Tom has great knowledge of the resale home market, he offers high value since his focus is always on the customer and not himself, and since every job has its own requirements he caters to those requirements with creativity and passion. I highly recommend Tom.
Tom recently helped us with the sale of our home and subsequently the purchase of a new home. He was great to work with. He helped us to understand our marketplace both for the sale and purchase. He had a professional but easy going way that was never pushy. His advice was counted upon and we couldn’t be more satisfied, Thanks Tom!
Tom was a great help in buying and selling our home. He made the selling process stress free. He was reliable and available to us. He worked very hard on our behalf and sold our house within a week. When we were looking for our new home - Tom took the time to understand what we were looking for. He managed to find a house that met all our criteria. He was patient, diligent and accessible to us. He made the buying and selling process a positive experience.
Tom recently helped us buying our new house. I am very pleased with the house we bought and enjoyed the process in buying it. Tom managed to do everything in a very efficient and timely manner. He has a great understanding of the market and the needs of his client. What impressed me most is that he always kept his promise. I remembered the time when we finally signed the purchase agreement at midnight. He promised to email us a copy of the signed documents as soon as possible, and guess what, we got them at 2’o clock in the morning. I knew I could expect his timely response, no matter when I requested information. He is always there to help.
I've known Tom for more than 20 years, as both a friend in University and afterwards as well as a colleague when we had the chance to work together. Tom brings a camaraderie to any sort of a relationship wherein he will lend you his strengths: a critical eye for details, a sharp mind to peel back and sort out layers of complexity and ask the right questions, a careful ear to listen for the messages between the words, and a firm stance for not getting "walked on". Where there's been strength in numbers, Tom's always had the right number of strengths, and he is the first one to call for real estate advice.
