Tom handled our house search with extreme dedication, paid attention to what we were looking for and was very patient, responsive and informative. I would recommend Tom Stynes to my friends and will use his services again in the future. Thank you Tom.

I think it is harder to be a seller's agent than a buyer's agent. Tom acted as 'seller's' agent in our transaction. I had many people who wanted to sell my home and who promised me the moon (full price, quick sale, etc.) To me, personal credibility was probably the most important. A lot of people hedge their answers. "Well, it could be this or it could be that." I wanted an agent who would take a position and tell me what they really felt. Tom felt credible from the beginning and certainly proved it along the way. His advice was pretty much spot-on all the time! And he found us the buyer. We're convinced the buyer did not just happen along. Tom found them and marketed our house such that they were excited to purchase it. The biggest thing I can say about Tom is that I really felt he was my agent, my representative. Workwise, it was not the best time to sell my house. But after the contract was signed, Tom jumped right in and organized and project managed the 'close' timeline. We met all of our objectives, and even though closing a home sale is a stressful time, it felt less stressful because of Tom. I knew he would always keep us on schedule.

Tom Stynes went above and beyond to help find a wonderful home for us to buy. He made himself available very often and would always respond to us in a timely manner. He is a trustworthy, reliable agent, and we felt that he always had our best interest in mind. Tom is very knowledgeable of the local real estate market and has excellent negotiation skills. We are grateful that Tom Stynes handled our real estate transaction and we highly recommend him to others who are looking to buy or sell their home.

Look no further. We have met with a handful of Realtors and Tom is in his own league. On top of being patient, knowledgeable and an expert in his field, his ability to guide us through this process, that at times, may be a bit stressful and discouraging, is a gift that not many posses. He put our minds at ease when we needed to feel at ease and always stayed positive. We were lucky to have met and worked with Tom and will do so again in the future. No doubt. As we said- look no further.

by Amit & Charlene

Tom has been patient and honest in all his dealings, which is a rarity in this market. He has gone above and beyond to ensure that we were well taken care of during this process. His background in finance and corporate America helps him understand our needs and constraints. We would definitely recommend him to all our friends

We worked with Tom for a couple of years in a really competitive real estate market. We were looking for just the right home, but competing against multiple offers in a market that had very low inventory. Tom did a terrific job with market analysis to help us make competitive offers, but without way over bidding on a property. A few properties did get away from us, but the properties that did get away from us went $100,000 - $200,000 over asking and were all cash offers. The home we finally had a winning bid for was the nicest home we bid on and we couldn't be more pleased with it. Tom put a lot of effort into helping us come up with that winning bid, without over paying. As a matter of fact, the bid amount on the home was the exact amount the home appraised for. This was actually amazing as most homes we bid on had over 20 offers that were ridiculously higher than the value of the home. Another great thing about Tom, is that he is extremely responsive. I'd say 90% of the time I called him he would pick up the phone. On the few occasions when I left a voicemail he would call back in a matter of minutes. Tom was always very quick to meet us at homes we were interested in viewing, and he was very flexible with timing. If you are buying or selling a home, I would highly recommend working with Tom.

by Ken

Tom's level of service is top notch. We had a number of challenges through the home buying process, and he went out of his way to help us out in every way he could. Even after the purchase of the house, he continues to make himself available to answer questions and help out as needed. He stayed on top of all aspects of the purchase to include coordination with the loan officer and was never afraid to take the lead to ensure all issues were handled in a timely manner. He'll certainly be referred to friends and family, and he'll be my go to realtor in the bay area.

by Tanner Wortham

Tom did an excellent job marketing my home . I will definitely recommend him to my friends and family ! Tom Is very professional in every aspect and just a really good realtor. I will use his services again when needed.

I worked with Tom Stynes in the previous sale of my house during slump in the real estate market. That's house was on the market for seven months without one offer. I already bought my Braemer Court home. Having to pay two mortgages was a big stress for me. Tom came highly recommended by a friend of my sister and I am still gratefu for that referral. Tom stepped in and immediately suggested changes which made my home more marketable. He is knowledgeable, resourceful, diligent, and easy to work with. My house had three offers and was sold in less than two months. Because of Tom I was able sleep at night again. When I decided to sell my second home seven years later I had no hesitation in deciding who I would call despite several other referrals from brokers offering lower broker fee. I trust Tom completely when it comes to real estate broker and would recommend him to anyone who asks me for a referral. As I stated in the previous comment, Tom Stynes is the only broker I would use. Tom's staff is also great to work with, helpful and efficient
