Showed home in 2013 in Folsom, CA.
Missed quite a few details when showing us a home in Folsom. (Broken fixtures in bathroom and kitchen, major cracks in stucco, garage was a disaster - repaired improperly, etc.)

Became hostile when we mentioned these issues about the home and referenced another realtor (family friend) who had given us some ideas/pointers...

Not proffesional like his descriotion

Bottom line - he did not make us feel comfortable.... He acted like we were an annoyance...

We came pre-qualified and were prepared to make a serious offer....

Funny thing is the seller dropped him as the listing agent a short time after our meeting.

Best t look elsewhere.... 43 perfect reviews.... too good to be true...

Caveat Emptor!

Hi Peter. Wow, my first bad review! I'll take it as constructive criticism. I'm not sure what prompted you to write a review over a year after we last met, but I'm sorry you were not happy with my service. This house was a bit of a fixer, as I pointed out, and you were looking with a budget in mind that was hard to find in Folsom. I'm sorry we couldn't find anything better for the price. The seller went through two more agents after me to finally sell it. Some transactions are smooth and easy, some others have many issues. This was the latter, and I'm sorry you had to experience the difficulty! I'm especially sorry if you felt I was "hostile," I thought I was extremely fair and nice with you. I hope you have successfully found your home and I wish you the best!

Tom recently helped us sell our home, he was very professional and knowledgeable. Tom was always quick to answer any questions and return our calls, emails, texts promptly. We really appreciated his expertise and experience through the whole process. I would definitely recommend using Tom for any of your real estate needs.

Thanks Loree! You were a GREAT client, and you did everything right as far as preparing the home for sale. Thanks for being so easy to work with. I'm glad that we received multiple offers and sold you home for over list price. :) I'll be so happy to help you when you're ready to purchase again!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $475K in Roseville, CA.
We decided to contact Tom after reading the many positive reviews about him on Zillow. We couldn’t have been more pleased with our experience with Tom in purchasing our Roseville home. His professionalism, responsiveness, knowledge, insight and wonderful personality made our home-buying experience a pleasant one. We very highly recommend him!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $125K in Biggs, CA.
Tom sold us a house a few years ago in Sacramento,and did such an amazing job that we have referred several friends and family to him since then. This time, Tom helped our Mom sell her property in Butte County and again Tom did an amazing job, he made this move for our Mom very easy and took very good care of her.

BOB! Thank you again for allowing me to work with another one of your family. Your mom was a kick to work with, and I'm glad we got her happily moved! Thank you for all of the referrals in the past, too, I love helping your relatives and friends as much as I loved helping you! Looking forward to the next one.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $250K in Rancho Cordova, CA.
We started selling our home with Tom and knew of him as I used him to purchase that home a few years prior. The first experience was so good I went directly back to him to sell the property. The property was occupied by our tenant, and it made things much harder to operate the sale. As people can imagine selling a home while occupied can be very difficult as an empty home that has been properly set is much more appealing to the eyes.

In addition to the home being occupied, we found out that the back yard wasn't in the best condition so from the start it was an uphill battle. Tom was very optimistic and took the challenge with enthusiasm. We took his advice and sold the property very quickly.

I would never use another realtor and we have already discussed the next property. Tom in my opinion is the best realtor anyone could ask for, I will always suggest him to others, and I will never personally use anyone else.

Hi Jose! I always love it when I have the opportunity to help a client a second time. It's a neat feeling to help you as the buyer, and then help you sell that same house as the owner many years later! Thanks for your efforts in preparing the house for sale, and I look forward to helping you next time!

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $400K in Rocklin, CA.
I interviewed several agents prior to picking one. My final interviews were with Tom and another agent. Tom did not get the job but what stood out to me was how persistent he was. Tom came back to me with a counter offer and while the offer was nice, it was his never give up attitude that we really liked. We decided then that Tom was the right agent for us and chose him to help us with selling our home.

Tom is very knowledgeable about the area as well as the buy/sell process. He's very clear and articulate on what he does and why he does it and will always ask if you are okay with his decisions prior to making any changes. He did a good job marketing our home for us and I look forward to working with him again

A very professional agent, highly recommend.

My Wife and I met Tom Pohlman through Zillow when we were searching for a rental property in the Elk Grove area. Tom was extremely responsive, showed us many houses and found us a great house. I would highly recommend Tom to anyone in search of a house in the Sacramento area. .

Bought a home in 2013.
My wife and I wanted to buy a home in Roseville, CA. After doing some research on agents in the area we decided to give Tom a call. He had excellent reviews and was very knowledgeable on the area where we wanted to buy. We immediately knew from our first phone conversation with Tom that we had made the right choice. Tom is very personable, and knows how to compete in this very competitive real estate market. We know for a fact that we would not be in our new house without Tom. He was able to get our offer verbally excepted before the seller's had their open house. Tom worked very hard and had our best interest during the whole short sell process. We highly recommend Tom Pohlman.

That was a fun one! I knew that was the right home for you, as did you, and I'm glad we were able to move quickly on it and beat the competition from the upcoming open house! You were great to work with, and I hope you have many happy years in your new home!

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $175K in Sacramento, CA.
Tom helped us find the very best home for our budget in spite of the low inventory in the market.Tom was very prompt in his responses whenever we reached out to him with questions on the listings and he quickly got all the information needed for us to make our decisions further.

I highly recommend him and have recommended him to my friends who plan on investing in real estate in Sacremento area.

Thanks Tom for helping us find a good property and also recommending a good property manager for the same.

Showed home in 2012 in Citrus Heights, CA.
I'm so glad I found Tom to represent me in my home purchase. I'm fascinated and entertained by the strategy of the negotiation process. Having been a retail buyer I definitely appreciate the value of negotiation. I know I keep saying 'thanks' but I don't know how else to express my appreciation for your knowledge & support. Cheers!!!

I am confident that due to Tom's expertise and customer service, we will be successful in finding my next home.
