Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $700K in Santa Clara, CA.
Tom helped us find our new home in Santa Clara. He spent hours understanding our needs and had lots of knowledge about the housing market and the area. Not only Tom could direct us to the better neighborhoods and properties, but he also had tons of design ideas and good referrals to handy men and designers. It was a pleasure working with him. He was always there for us, extraordinarily patient and ready to help. We would strongly recommend him for everybody who he is looking for a home in the bay area.
We've used Tom Huff for both the sale and purchase transactions.
What we really liked about Tom is how he quickly got a sense of the kind of place we wanted, and didn't show us homes that didn't fit our needs. Instead, he did lots of research, and only showed us homes that were "spot on." On the third try, we found the house we wanted and Tom skillfully advised us through a multiple-bidder situation.
During the sale of our other home, Tom helped us with staging the property and he marketed it effectively to other agents, so that we also had multiple offers above our expected price.
Tom knows the market and his craft well, but even more importantly, he's honest, timely, dependable, and fun! It was pleasure to business with him, and we'd highly recommend him.
Tom was our property manager for a rental home that my wife and I leased for a year in Menlo Park and when it came time to search for a home to purchase, we turned to Tom for guidance.
Tom was very prepared and made the process of looking at homes easy and efficient and his knowledge and enthusiasm were greatly appreciated.
After the purchase of our home, Tom has remained a friend of ours and we plan on consulting with him on any future property purchases. I will recommend Tom to any of my friends, family, and connections to use his services in the purchase of a new home.
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 in Redwood City, CA.
As first time home-buyers, my husband and I were overwhelmed and more than a bit nervous about the process. I appreciated the way Tom took time to explain the process, explaining the role of inspectors and title companies. Tom guided us through some bumpy negotiations, always calm, reassuring and positive. He is very astute and can handle challenging personalities and situations with grace under pressure. I felt that he genuinely cared that we find the right house at the right price and wasn't simply out to make a profit. He steered us away from one home when he noted a pump in the garage, rightly judging the home to have some serious drainage issues and foreseeing great costs to the new homeowners. Tom has a thorough understanding of the market, resale values of homes etc but more importantly he has a real gift for working with people and handling the negotiations in a business where people are more emotional than rational. Anybody would be lucky to have Tom Huff as their realtor.
