Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.075M in Campbell, CA.

We worked with Tom for a couple of years in a really competitive real estate market. We were looking for just the right home, but competing against multiple offers in a market that had very low inventory. Tom did a terrific job with market analysis to help us make competitive offers, but without way over bidding on a property. A few properties did get away from us, but the properties that did get away from us went $100,000 - $200,000 over asking and were all cash offers. The home we finally had a winning bid for was the nicest home we bid on and we couldn't be more pleased with it. Tom put a lot of effort into helping us come up with that winning bid, without over paying. As a matter of fact, the bid amount on the home was the exact amount the home appraised for. This was actually amazing as most homes we bid on had over 20 offers that were ridiculously higher than the value of the home.

Another great thing about Tom, is that he is extremely responsive. I'd say 90% of the time I called him he would pick up the phone. On the few occasions when I left a voicemail he would call back in a matter of minutes. Tom was always very quick to meet us at homes we were interested in viewing, and he was very flexible with timing.

If you are buying or selling a home, I would highly recommend working with Tom.

Sold a home in 2013.

Tom and his team -StynesGroup- are amazing to work with.

When we decided to sell our home, we thought it would be an easy and straight-forward process if we priced it right... surprise - it wasn't, and probably will never be unless you totally luck out. Stuff happens: local markets can quickly change, offers can fall through... Then it really pays to have a professional that keeps you focused on the goal at hand, coaches you, and proceeds to screen offers and score a committed, qualified buyer. And, furthermore, skillfully and successfully negotiates with a great sense for all parties' motivations and with his clients' best interests in mind.

Tom is such a professional. It was not easy to let go of my house of 15 years due to a period of personal change aka divorce. To top it off, the local market had overheated and started to turn some just as we went to market. It never fazed Tom: he kept providing the right guidance and the offer came in within 7 weeks of going to market.

And for Tom the job doesn't end there: he has a large Rolodex of very competent professionals to help stage, clean, move... you name it. Anything to help you out. I was very pleased with the work of his entire extended team: staging. touching up paint. cleaning. fixing stuff...

What really impresses me about Tom is that he orchestrates the process from start to finish with utter thoroughness. He is always there for his clients. Even when the clients are in a timezone 13 hours away, I can vouch for that, too.

Tom is assertive when needed, calming when required, and a joy to work with throughout.

Not only did he sell my house - he managed the entire process flawlessly, and helped me keep my sanity through it.

I will buy a home again in the next 18 months - and I would want to buy it with Tom as my agent.

Enthusiastically recommended. And that's not because it was a transaction where everything turned out right by sheer luck: it is because there were issues, and Tom dealt with all of them with utter and total professionalism, driving a successful outcome.

Sold a home in 2011.

From the very first meeting we had with Tom we were impressed with his casual yet confident demeanor. We have worked with him to purchase and sell a home and both experieces were great. Tom was patient, informative, and extremely responsive. Despite the complex issues of buying and selling real estate we felt completely at ease becuase of the way Tom conducts himself. His understanding of the financial/legal/emotional process of real estate buying and selling was always evident with every interaction with Tom. I highly reccommend him and his support staff.  More Less
