Bought a home in 2012.
If you want a real estate agent that will be a pleasure to work with, go with Tom.

He is knowledgeable, resourceful, prompt, and honest. We've had some unpleasant experiences with "pushy" realtors in the past and I am very delighted to say that Tom worked at our pace. Tom is a genuinely nice person who will work very hard to help you buy/sell your home. He considers your finances when negotiating and will get you the best deal possible.

We purchased our home in rural Lincoln, which wasn't Tom's usual area of expertise; however, he became an expert very quickly. He helped us figure out well/septic issues, gave us proper contact information and provided any extra information he researched. He made the process so much easier and stress free.

My husband and I are very easy going, but have high expectations and we couldn't have been happier with the end result.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $300K in Fair Oaks, CA.
I highly recommend Tom Pohlman as the ultimate real estate professional. In our search for a new home in the Folsom area, Tom has worked diligently to help us find a place that met our specific requirements, including a home with a difficult to find space to accommodate our large RV. Tom researched this problem, and was able to find a good number of homes in the area that might meet our list of needs. During the many visits that followed, he did not hesitate to point out potential problems with every home we viewed, as well as showing the positives. After our first choice, a short sale home, did not work out because of issues with the seller, Tom worked even harder to locate other alternatives. When we found another home we truly loved, he guided us through all the ups and downs of the short sale process, always providing invaluable advice and reassurance, until the sale was finally concluded. Tom always proved to be very knowledgeable about the local market, processes, and legal technicalities. He is always available and responds quickly to every call and question, and also worked well with the seller and his agent. Because we do not live in the area, Tom always made a special effort to coordinate inspections and other matters so that we could be present if required. Paperwork processing was always handled in a smooth and professional manner. Working with Tom and Keller Williams has been a pleasure. Thank you, Tom!

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $125K in Sacramento, CA.
Tom Pohlman is an exceptional real estate agent. He is professional, courteous, knowledgeable, and most importantly, responsive.

We called him many times from early morning to late evening to look at short sales that fit our budget. After a few weeks, when others may have given up, Tom was still there with us looking. We put an offer on a home when we were initially looking and after 4 weeks we were ready to give up, but Tom wouldn't let us and assured us we would get it. We did.

When we are ready for our next real estate purchase, Tom will be the person we will turn to.

Thanks Tom!

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $325K in Rocklin, CA.
When we started the journey to our new home, we knew nothing about the process. I saw Tom's listing and read a few reviews, and then trusted my gut and gave him a call. For over a month Tom gave me a lot of advice, most importantly, that it would be better to rent an apartment and not get into a long lease with a house because, "You'd hate to be stuck in a 12 month lease when your dream house pops up on the market." He also took time to educate me about the process--all without promise of a return since we hadn't even signed with him yet!

Tom is incredibly professional, easily available and through his friendliness and time, he makes you feel like you are his only client. He’s very responsive and replies to calls/email/text in a timely manner, even during off hours.

The market in Rocklin is crazy with minimum time to look at houses before they are off the market. With our limited knowledge, we could have been looking for a long time, but Tom knows his job and he does it well. Our dream house did pop up on the market when we didn’t expect it to and luckily we took Tom’s advice and were only in a 4 month lease.

We owe him a debt of gratitude. I know, without doubt, that if it weren't for him and all his hard work/great advice, we never would have got this house. It's that simple. There were multiple offers, the selling agent was difficult to work with and Tom knew exactly how to handle it so we were able to get the home of our dreams. We will be eternally grateful and will always recommend him to all. (We already have)

Bought a home in 2012.
My husband and I spent approxiamately 4 weeks with another agent driving from property to property; we probably saw well over a dozen homes in this time but with no success to relocating to the Sacramento County area.

Our timeline to relocate was short and needed a house by June.

We read Tom Pohlman's reviews and decided to contact him. I was surprised he answered the call and we were able to schedule a meeting - that Saturday.

On Saturday we spent about an hour getting educated about the current real estate market and getting to know each other. We spent the next 2 hours looking at homes on-line that were available. We had several homes lined up to view on Sunday; by the end of the week we signed an offer to the home. Tom worked diligently with the Seller's agent to have the offer accepted and we are scheduled to have our keys to the house by April 30, 2012.

Tom has been professional, informative, very responsive to our needs and is a great asset to have on our side (buyer's agent). Thank you Tom for a job well done!

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $200K in Roseville, CA.
After a falling out with my previous realtor, I contacted Tom. I had a house in mind and within 2 days I had a bid in on it. Thanks to Tom's quick work, I was able to get the house over an investor. The rest of the process went smoothly. He had patience with my ignorance and answers for my questions. Highly recommend for first time home buyers. Thanks Tom

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $275K in Lincoln, CA.
What we liked about Tom was he was always quick to answer our calls and most times he answered in person and when we met to look at a house he was always on time. We would recommend Tom to anyone.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $275K in West Sacramento, CA.
Tom was my go to guy in CA. I was very difficult because of my specials needs for a house but he was there to help all the way. When we found the house for my family Tom was super fast in getting us locked in. He informed us of everything that was going on through the whole progress. After it was all over and we have ownership of the house we feel that he acted more like a friend than an agent. If we ever have to do this again Tom Pohlman will be our GUY

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $275K in Roseville, CA.
Tom was a great realtor from the very start. He came right over when we e-mailed him on a weekend afternoon. Our home was competitively priced and we had a full offer within 24 hours of being in the MLS. He stayed on top of things all throughout the escrow process keeping us up-to-date on all necessary details. He was a good communicator and very professional at all times. He was always available to answer e-mails or phone calls when we had questions. He was on time for every commitment he made throughout the process. This has been the smoothest move for us ever. When interviewing him, he asked us what would be the most important things that would make him a success at representing us. He remembered everything we talked about and followed through on everything. He was a pleasure to work with and we would highly recommend him. We will plan on using his services again in the future. Thanks Tom!
