If you’re looking to buy or sell a home (or both), hire Tom Rott. Seriously. There simply isn’t anyone better. When I decided to sell my home and buy another, I did quite a bit of research online to find the right person. I kept coming across Tom Rott and his reviews were exceptional. I decided to give him a shot and set up a meeting. Again, I went online to get some help with what questions I should ask. I had some things I knew I wanted to discuss, but wanted to be sure I wasn’t missing anything. I came up with a list of about twenty points. I called Tom and we set up a time to meet at my home. The day of our meeting, I was in the front yard with my dogs about 30 minutes prior to Toms arrival. A car drove by and I thought to myself ‘that looked like Tom’. 25 minutes later, the same car drove up and parked in front of my house. Turns out, Tom had arrived early to drive through the neighborhood. Good start. Tom was extremely pleasant and loved on my dogs for a bit before we went inside. We talked briefly and then I gave him a tour of my home. Tom had several SIMPLE suggestions to help the sale of my home and it became evident that Tom was extremely knowledgeable in staging/décor/colors/etc (something I was not). We sat and talked for quite a bit more and I was ready with my list of questions. As I scanned the list, I realized Tom had already touched on everything I wanted to discuss. I couldn’t believe it! But I did have one concern. I was guessing a realtor with SO MANY five star reviews and GLOWING comments was in very high demand and would have multiple clients at a time. Would Tom have enough time to really get me the most money for my home, and help me find my dream home? Though I was VERY impressed so far, I had my doubts. The next few weeks were a whirlwind with several ups and downs with both buyers and sellers. In fact, several situations arose that quite frankly, if I had any other realtor, I may not have made it through! If you don’t know already, the Austin market is CRAZY, and you’re bound to hit some bumps along the road. I was grateful I had chosen a realtor with a wealth of EXPERIENCE to get me through those situations. In the end, I had multiple offers on my home and ended up selling for more than asking price. I also got the home of my dreams. Literally, it’s been weeks now since I moved in and I still can’t believe how PERFECT the home is! Lastly, in my line of work, I’m one of the very best. I’m very good at what I do…but what really sets me apart is that I work harder than anyone else. In fact, I’ve never met anyone who works harder at what they do than myself. Until I met Tom Rott. When I read Tom’s reviews, I thought to myself ‘If this is true, this guy is going to have too many clients to really put in the time I need to sell my home and buy another’. Well … I was wrong. Sorry for questioning you Tom. Seeing the work Tom did for me to sell my home, you’d think he was selling a multi-million dollar home. That’s not the case. In fact, my home was one of the least expensive homes in Pflugerville at the time of selling. The fact is, Tom is PASSIONATE about his job, and he works harder than any person I’ve ever met. If you’re looking to buy or sell a home (or both), hire Tom Rott. Seriously. Steve Roeder

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 in Round Rock, TX.

Wow....just wow! Tom is absolutely incredible. I could not have asked for a more perfect realtor. I can honestly say that there is not a single negative thing about him. If you want someone to get the job done and get it done right, Tom is your guy! My fiance and I had met with several realtors before and he blew them all out of the water. We used Tom to sell and buy and at the beginning we truly weren't expecting much. He went above and beyond for everything and truly made us feel like we were his only client. Anytime we needed to contact him he responded that same day, if not immediately. He was truly a go getter and was always sending us homes he thought we might be interested in. When we went to look at houses, he gave us an organized packet of all the homes we were going to look at in the order we were going to see them. Every house we went to, he could tell us anything and everything about that neighborhood. One of the things that I loved about Tom was that when we were looking at houses, he could quickly point out anything that he thought might be concerning. As buyers, we were too excited to pay attention to these things at the moment, but Tom caught them right away. We knew that Tom always had our best interest at heart. When it came to buying our new home, Tom made sure everything went as smoothly as possible and was very good at negotiating any terms. He was so professional about everything and handled every situation proficiently. As we were getting closer to our close date Tom sent us a checklist of things to take care of...HOA, gas, water, electricity, trash, etc. He made sure we had all the contact information for everyone so that we could be completely ready when we moved in. On this list he even reminded us to get our mail forwarded, spray for bugs, change out locks, update our personal info with our new address, etc...talk about detail oreiented! Tom was absolutely amazing when it came to buying our new home, but he did much more for selling my fiance's home. My fiance will be writing a review on our experience with selling his home...if it doesn't convince you to use Tom, I have no idea what will! Seriously, Tom is without a doubt the best realtor in Austin. We worked with him for 3 months...from when we first met to the day we moved in. I could not be more impressed with everything that Tom did. I would recommend him all day every day. He knows exactly what he's doing and knows how to do it right.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 in MLK 183, Austin, TX.

We met Tom Rott through a mutual friend who helped us find both of our rescue dogs ?. The first time we met up with Tom he had a game plan. As we discussed what we were looking for, he was quickly able to adapt and determine the best strategy to find us a house we loved in our price range. Each house we visited Tom was helpful in identifying advantages/disadvantages, always keeping in mind resale value. Tom was able to talk us through each step of the house buying process and was never annoyed to answer our novice questions multiple times! As an early riser, we usually woke up to a detailed email answering all of our questions and offering solutions. Tom also knows a great deal of vendors from lenders to handymen. We would absolutely recommend working with Tom, he is very knowledgeable, responsive, and goes the extra mile to help with anything through the entire process!

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 in Austin, TX.

Tom helped us relocate from North Carolina. I was able to fly out to Austin for a day and a half and Tom helped me squeeze around 15 house visits in, adjusting our schedule and the houses we visited on the fly! He was extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of the home buying process - loans, repairs, taxes, safety, etc. We simply told him what we liked and he did the rest. His super fast responsiveness was crucial in helping us get our home purchased in a housing market where things were going fast! Thanks, Tom!

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 in Cedar Park, TX.

It was a pleasure working with Tom on my home purchase. I appreciated his professionalism as well as his knowledge. Tom was very thoughtful about sending lists of reputable service providers, tasks to be done and even a maintenance checklist after purchase. Overall, Tom made the whole process much less stressful than I could have hoped for. I’ll definitely call Tom again when I need a Real Estate Agent!

Listed, but didn't sell my Single Family home in 2015 in Austin, TX.

Despite all the glowing reviews on this site, which admittedly convinced us to seek out Tom's services, we had a horrible experience with Tom. Maybe he's great as a buyer's agent, but as a seller's agent - I can only say look elsewhere. Tom was all over the map with us. From when or if we'd have an Open House, to the listing price (which he blew so badly he ended up recommending a price reduction after only 5 days on the market), to actively marketing the home, it was shambolic. When questioned about his approach or his strategy, he was rude, unhelpful, and dismissive. Rather than doing the right thing and calling us when it was clear we were getting upset by his inconsistent messaging and behavior, he chose to hide behind emails rather than pick up the phone or have an in-person conversation. Suffice it to say I was very disappointed by Tom and his level of service. I would not recommend him to anyone. The only good thing he did for us was allow us to cancel our Listing Agreement with him.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 in Austin, TX.

I cannot say enough about how great Tom was as a buyers agent. I contacted him through Zillow based on other reviews and would like to leave my own now. Tom's knowledge, responsiveness, professionalism far exceeded my expectations for an agent. I typically make my decisions based on online reviews and contacted Tom initially based on others' reviews rather than contacting someone just because they were a friend of a friend. I am really glad that I did; I would not have been able to do it without Tom. Purchasing a house in Austin is getting to become quite competitive and Tom guided me through a several offers and ultimately closing.

I found Tom Rott on Zillow. His many plaudits on this site and other sites are richly deserved. I've dealt with many real estate agents over the years and I can confidently say Tom is the best there is.

He's the consummate professional and always goes the extra mile to assist you. He's patient and an absolute pleasure to work with. We always looked forward to his emails as they were always detailed, thoughtfully compiled and helped us understand every leg of the process in plain and simple terms. He works for you even after the closing...checking in, reminding us about household upkeep etc. I've never seen any agent do that! Research no more - just hire him!

Bought a home in 2014 in Carl, TX 78747.

Tom was able to help us find a rental home when we first moved to Austin and then helped up find our home when we were ready to buy. He made everything easy for us along the way. We had SO many questions during our moving process and purchasing process and he answered them in a VERY quick manner and in great detail. With every answer he gave he would also give reasoning as to why that was the answer and that made us feel very informed and empowered.

Tom was great in every aspect. He was very respectful toward us and our decisions and our wants and desires. He cared about us and genuinely wanted us to be happy. He made the home buying process enjoyable and fun.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Austin, TX.

Tom was great. He quickly figured out exactly what we were looking for, was patient when what we thought we wanted turned out to not be what we wanted, and was willing to help with multiple things post-sale that he was under no obligation to help with. He was also very quick to respond and never harassed us about anything.
