Why are some clients holding big checks? For every transaction I let my clients choose which charity they would like me to donate $300 to from my commission.
It’s a fun way to help out your favorite charity!

Tom is a fantastic realtor!
We have bought and sold over 20 homes and he is by far the best realtor we have worked with. From our first meeting to our last he was very professional, personable, and positive. The support he provided included a home inspection to identify any potential issues that may impact the sale, contractor information for upgrading the condo prior to the sale, and staging advice. Since we were out of town sellers, he went out of his way to make sure the contractor, cleaners, inspectors, and the photographer had access to the condo when needed.
Tom’s communication and marketing plan were outstanding. For the brochure of the condo a professional photographer took amazing pictures, and he used traditional, internet, and social media to market the property. We had two offers within days, with one buyer purchasing the condo for above asking price.
He constantly kept us appraised of the progress of the sale. The initial inspection and preparation work that Tom provided paid off and the sale went very smoothly with no surprises, and closed early!
Even though it was not a large sale Tom treated us like million-dollar clients.
My wife and I recently had Tom as our realtor for both selling our existing home and buying a new one, and let me just say, Tom is AMAZING! He made the entire process feel easy and really went out of his way to go the extra mile for us. Not only did he handle the plethora of questions, issues, forms, and discussions that had to happen between us and the other party, various real estate agents, the title company, etc… but we also knew we’d need to hire a contractor and so he spearheaded all the organizing and meetings for that too!
We are so grateful for Tom and all the hard work he did for us. From the little things like bringing us our favorite Starbucks drinks, to more substantial stuff like providing us with a free home inspection, radon testing, and paying for a staging consultation from an interior designer, everything he did made the process feel smooth. And in the end we found a new house we love, and sold our existing house in under 48 hours with multiple offers for way above what we’d hoped for. Highly, highly recommend him. You’ll find him not only friendly and knowledgeable as you’d expect out of a realtor, but as someone that will really go the extra mile to make your experience great.
The Halbert BrothersAs a first time buyer, Tom was a great comfort in a sea of paper work and new unknowns. His genuine demeanor and his willingness to go to bat for you is next to none. I would highly recommend Tom enough to anyone that has never been through the process before, and even its your fourth real estate transaction, you’ll be incredibly satisfied with his great work ethic and dedication to you.
I really appreciate the effort that Tom Taylor put forth in my recent purchase of a condo. He was so very helpful and encouraged any phone calls with questions that I had. He is a great realtor and I would highly recommend him.
Tom was great in the purchase of my first home. My wife and I went to enjoy some tacos and picked up one of his flyers with some of the local listings. We had to leave town the next day but he scheduled an appointment to walk through as soon as we returned. He made sure everything went smooth with our purchase and guided me all the way through. We were so pleased with our experience we had him sell our other home.
I highly recommend Tom Taylor! Tom’s negotiating skills are truly remarkable! If you are looking to get the best deal possible, Tom has the ability to accomplish that for you. In my case, if it had not been for Tom’s high level of negotiating skills I know I would have found myself in a bidding war, when an offer of $10,000 above my offer, came in after the seller had said the house was mine. That is a testament of the job Tom did to fight my battle, so to speak, as the best person to purchase this townhome!
As if that were not enough, to my surprise, after that he negotiated another $1,000 off the asking price! Tom is honest and trustworthy. He was quick to reply to my questions and made every step of the process an enjoyable experience. If you want a realtor who will keep your hard earned money in your pocket and go the extra mile for you, do yourself a favor by calling Tom Taylor!

To whom it may concern,
Tom is a good guy, did a great job on a hard close. I look forward to working with Tom again in the future and I would not hesitate to recommend him to my friends and family. (in fact I already have!)
I approached Tom with nearly unrealistic time and budget constraints given the condition of the market in the time and place and he successfully found a number of properties for me to consider. The property I ended up choosing was owned by a bank and had not been lived in for four years. I will spare you the complications involved in purchasing from a bank, suffice to say there were notable and frustrating. Tom kept the fire to the bank’s feet and kept me updated through the entire process including keeping me informed of the various risks and expenses of purchasing from a bank.
My father is a realtor and as such I was checking in with him from time to time just to make sure that Tom was shooting straight. Tom was a great asset to have on my side. He knew the right people. He knew the area. And he knew exactly how to handle the bank when they wanted to re-appraise the property because of a delay that they were responsible for.
Tom, thanks for the hard work and for shooting straight with me.

We went to Tom as first time home buyers, having no clue about the home buying process and no idea what to expect.
From the very first meeting Tom was warm, informative and reassuring. He went above and beyond to understand what kind of home we wanted and made it a mission to find it for us. He was always available when we had questions about anything or wanted to look at properties.
All in all, we couldn’t have asked for more in a realtor and are incredibly pleased with our experience
“Tom was great for selling my house. He listened to my needs and was very flexible and helpful in getting the house prepped for sale. My property and layout of the house was fairly unique and he marketed it appropriately to attract the right buyer. I couldn’t be happier.

This was an into state move with some seller side complications and surprises. Tom helped us through them all with beyond professional ease. We had some unique requirements/desires and he found us a home that fit them. When we found out that dream homes also have their faults, he has helped us mitigate and/or correct them to our satisfaction. The purchase closed weeks ago but he is still there for us. Thank you Tom.
Tom is very knowledgeable about the housing market and the quality of homes. He helped us prepare our home for the market such as complimentary staging suggestions, home inspection, and radon testing and we had multiple offers in a day, all over asking, and with a quick close. He kept us informed every step of the way. He patiently walked us through all of our options for buying a multigenerational home until we found the house that would work for us in an affordable price range. Not only does Tom have real estate knowledge, but he also has years of experience in the construction and roofing industry and brings that knowledge to home selling and buying. Tom is a man of integrity and you can trust that he will always have your best interests in selling and buying a new home.
Tom was very knowledgeable, friendly, and great to work with. We ended up selling our home for more than we thought we could get, and it is in large part because he knew what areas we should invest in to get a good return, and quick sale upon listing. The firm he works with has good tools that help determine the value of the home, and Tom has contacts that helped stage the home, pre-inspect, and do handy work like updating counters, floors, etc.
Tom really went out of his way asking neighbors if they would cut their lawn, put away things left outside, etc. He also made a donation to a charity on our behalf. We were very impressed, and would recommend him to anyone. 10 out of 10.
