He is extremely professional, punctual, responsive, and got us an amazing price on our home. My husband and I are very busy and he made the entire process seamless and simply a breeze. He knows the area extremely well, and gave us perfect advice on how to position things. Really, Tom is amazing and can’t recommend him highly enough!"
