Clients are saying:

"As a retired real estate attorney, I feel like I have significant perspective on realtor performance. Tom is among the very best I have encountered. A true professional with tempered insight to share with his clients. My wife and I could not be happier."

"Tom has been positively AMAZING!!! I was told by another broker that my place had a very slim chance of selling this year unless I took the option of a loss on it . Within 3 weeks of working with Tom , I had a great offer on my place . The whole process to closing was smooth , minimal work from the inspection that needed to be taken care of on my end . Living out of State , I could not wish for a better agent ! Thank you Tom , Dina and Mitch .... You have been truly wonderful!!! I would highly recommend working with you guys!! Dream Team 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟"

"Tom is fantastic. Gave us sound, realistic advice and was very patient with us through our long search and decision making process. He's a master at his craft."

"Tom has a wealth of knowledge on the market and specific neighborhood dynamics. He was a consultant first, then realtor. We will use him exclusively in the future."

"Tom was, in one word, excellent. He was on top of everything from the start and even contacted me a couple of weeks after the closing to make sure all was still going well. I have to say that of the 4 homes I have sold and purchased over the years between Illinois as well as Massachusetts, he by far had more knowledge of the areas and personal experience than probably all the others collectively. He was a pleasure to work with, so consequently I have highly recommended him to friends of mine as well as other family members without hesitation. Do yourself a favor and put Tom in charge of finding your next home - you won't be disappointed!"
