Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $200K in Vacaville, CA.
When my husband and I first started looking to buy a home in October 2012, we were less-than-pleased with our Kappel and Kappel agent. So I went on the hunt to find a highly-rated real estate professional that would be able to find us our dream home -- I found Tom.

My husband and I were so taken back with his professionalism and genuine concern for the safety of our family as well as staying within our budget. He was NEVER pushy - in fact every time we looked at a home he was sure to point out any problems that we may have overlooked. We felt like he was really there to HELP US, not just make a paycheck like we had felt with our previous agent.

After only looking at a few homes, we found one we absolutely LOVED. We immediately went back to the office, he wrote up an offer and within a few days it had been accepted. We have been in it about six months now, and we are still VERY grateful for the help and wisdom Tom gave us. I recommend him to EVERYONE looking to buy a home in the area. He just can't be beat!

Bought a home in 2013.
This is the first home my wife and I purchased and I had no idea where to start. I first let my wife take care of it. The realtor she was referred to, we just didn’t click with. So by dumb luck we came across Tom “the guy with the advertisement at the movie theatre”, my daughter said. After my first conversation with Tom I realized this is how a realtor should behave. He asked the right questions and sounded eager to help me. We were in somewhat of a deadline due to the fact that my wife and I are expecting our little baby girl in a month. Tom was aware of it and was up for the challenge. Again, I knew nothing about purchasing a home prior to this. To get my loan I went to two banks. Everything sounded good so I went with the one with the better interest rate. After speaking with Tom about it, he referred me to someone that gave me a better rate and also helped me with the closing costs!

Due to the lack of inventory of homes in Dixon, we had difficulties getting our offer accepted. On our third offer, Tom used his creativity to make our offer look more appealing. It worked like a charm! There were multiple offers and our offer was accepted! We ended up going with a short-sale purchase. He informed my wife and I the process of a short-sale and how it could take some time. Even though it did take time to finally get our home, Tom kept us posted throughout the whole process. Tom was always available and was willing to answer any questions we had for him. It felt as if he was available any time of the day. When we (my wife :)) lost hope in the short-sale, Tom reassured us that we would be home owners soon. Although the short-sale process was dreadful, Tom was able to get us in our home and he made the process bearable.

I will continue to recommend Tom to anyone in need of a realtor. I can’t thank him enough for his hard work and dedication to helping us find our very first home. Not only is he a good person, he has become a good friend to my wife, daughter and myself! Thanks to Tom my family and I will live in a great neighborhood where we can raise our children for the years to come. Thanks Tom!!!

Bought a home in 2013.
My husband and I had been looking for a home for 7 months prior to being referred to Tom. This being our first time purchasing a home, we didn’t know what to expect of a realtor. After meeting Tom, we realized how cheated we had been in the past working with a realtor who wasn’t very proactive or helpful. Tom immediately took us under his wing and was determined to find us the perfect home for our growing family. Within a couple months we were successful in finding a home that was perfect for our needs. Aside from his impeccable knowledge of the industry, Tom also connected with us on a personal level. We can honestly say we found both an amazing realtor and friend. I would highly recommend Tom to anyone looking to purchase a home.

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $300K in Vacaville, CA.
We purchased a home in Vacaville with Tom Rapisarda of Rapisarda Realty.

The house we bought had 7 offers on it the first day it came on the market! Tom knew the market so well and how to negotiate. Times like these, when the market is so complicated, it is so necessary to have someone on your side that knows exactly what they are doing. We were thrilled when it was our offer that was accepted!

For us, communication is so important. I have high expections when it comes to customer service. Tom exceeded these expectations with his timeliness and his respect, he was such a joy to work with!

I took his father's accounting class at Solano, and the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Like his father, Tom is so professional, a true class act. Tom and his father work in the same office, it was nice to catch up with Joe his father. Joe is now our accountant!

I have proudly referred friends and family to Tom. They have had success as well. The next property I intend to purchase will be an investment property. I look forward to working with Tom again!

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $250K in Vacaville, CA.
Tom had an immediate and appropriate fix for each of the inevitable glitches that occurred during the process.of buying a rental property; as a result the purchase went smoothly. His suggestions about selecting a rental agent and predictions about performance of the local rental market helpful and accurate. This was my third purchase of a rental property and by far the easiest and most successful financially. Tom's vast experience, willingness to work hard and absolute honesty were just what I would want in a real estate agent.

Sold a home in 2008.
I've had the pleasure of doing business with Tom and the Rapisarda Family twice. Tom sold me a house in 2008 and then helped me sell it in 2012. Selling the house was a lengthy process and testing at times. Tom was extremely professional, pro-active, and dedicated throughout the whole process. My wife and I would recommend the Rapisarda Family to anyone and would use them again in a heart beat.

Tom Rapisarda is the consummate professional with the highest integrity, keenly focused on guiding his client to the best result possible. Because of Tom's professional integrity, he takes no short cuts so he can give the best advice possible and execute flawlessly. I have used Tom on numerous real estate transactions over numerous years and valued his work on each one. Tom is not afraid to point out the negatives as he doesn't want his client blinded by the vision of short term gain while ignoring long term challenges. I highly recommend him to anyone.

Tom did a such wonderful job with the short sale of my home. He was always on top of my transaction and kept me in the loop the entire way. He continuously called my lenders to get an update, made sure they had all the paperwork they needed, and that they were working on my file. The whole transaction went very smoothly, especially for a short sale. I couldn't have asked for a better agent to work with, and I will definitely work with Tom again when I am in the market to buy.
