PEOPLE ARE TALKING…

“Our home sat on the market for months with one agent until the listing eventually expired. We were getting to the point that we did not think it would ever sell. When Thomas’s team took it over, they gave our home maximum exposure and it finally sold. Thomas also worked daily after that to help us find a condo. We found just what we were looking for.”
– Jim & Cathy Engrissei

“We were very serious about selling our home as quickly as we could, but also for the very best money. There were other similar homes in our area up for sale at the same time, but with Thomas’s system, ours sold first. Thomas and his team were just fantastic. They also found us a wonderful new home.”
– Jack & Arlene McDougall

“When the listing expired on our home, we received numerous calls from agents wanting to list it. We decided to check with three local realtors. Thomas was our number one choice for price, marketing, and service. He successfully sold our home at full price within a week. We highly recommend him.”
– Ken & Victoria Sitarz

“I would like to thank Thomas for all his help in the sale of my home. I was transferred and needed to get my home sold fast and for top dollar. Being so far away, I was unable to see the day-to-day activity on my home, but Thomas’s team did a great job of keeping me up to date and making sure things were looked after at this end.”
– Mike Ramsey
