Real Estate Professional (23 years experience)
When I was moving to Iowa City in July of 2013, Tom searched out several possible properties to show me even though the market at that time had very little to offer. He was always polite, interested, heard my wishes and tried to find that type of property. I knew he was working for me. I appreciated all of the insights he gave me about the whole process of purchasing property. <br/><br/>When we found the place I wanted, he put forth every effort to get the best deal. I noticed that other realtors and the bank people were friendly with and respectful of Tom which speaks well of him as a professional.<br/><br/>I would definitely want Tom to be my realtor if I should need one again and would recommend him to my friends.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $275K in Iowa City, IA.
Tom Kaut is a very nice person and great realtor. He had showed us many different houses. We didn't have too much knowledge about the house before we met Tom. Tom spent time showing us telling us how to choose a house suitable for us. He is also a responsible person. To me he is doing great job.

Tom is a great guy. He was very patient and helpful during our long quest finding my next house. He was my neighbor and has the excellent reputation selling houses nearby. We hired him as seller agent with no doubt. We were still surprised how fast he had generated the offer and how professional he had guided us though the process. The selling progress is virtually stress free and the price waswithin our expectation.

Tom Kaut was incredible! He was recommended to me from a friend and I could not have been happier with my experience. We looked at many different properties and he was thorough, patient and really understood what I was looking for. And the place I ended up buying would not have happened if he had not been completely on top of things. The property hit the market on a Friday afternoon and we saw it Saturday morning and made the made offer that same afternoon. In speaking with the seller after that fact, she told me they got more than 30 calls on Monday and was quite sure there would have been a bidding war if I had not gotten in right away. I unequivocally recommend Tom Kaut for your next home buying experience.
Tom was amazing as first time home buyers we needed someone to tell us how the whole process works and basically hold our hand the entire time. He took a complicated and stressful process and turned it into an enjoyable experience. I felt confident with the decisions he made and felt comfortable with his opinion on things. Weather you are a first time home buyer or not he does an amazing job and truly cares about finding the best home for you. I am beyond pleased with the whole process and Tom is fantastic.

Tom helped us sell our home in less than two weeks, for the price we wanted and help us out during the building process of our new home. Every time we had a question in the process, Tom was very quick in getting us an answer and help solve any small issues that arose. I would highly recommend Tom Kaut to anyone in the Iowa City area looking to buy, sell, or build.
