After getting a new job in September 2014, our family relocated from Orange County to Carlsbad. We had family in the area and while staying with them we were introduced to Tom Wilson. Even though the relocation company that my new employer used had already assigned us a local agent, Tom showed genuine interest in helping our family find a perfect home. The experience with our first agent didn't go well and my wife and I found ourselves relying on Redfin to continue our home search. We decided to make a change and after getting approval from the relocation company, we were able to use Tom as our agent. The very next day he called me up to let me know a house was getting ready to go on the market in our preferred neighborhood. He came over that night and proposed an excellent strategy to maximize our chances of getting the house. We looked at the house and put together a thorough offer packet and it was accepted a few days later. We closed on the home in November about four weeks after we signed up to work with Tom. Not only were we fortunate enough to find a great home in Carlsbad, but we were also blessed to gain a good friend during the process. We will always appreciate Tom and SDREI's support team and will recommend them in the future.
