Tom has extensive knowledge and business experience that he uses to every client's benefit. He is a very strong negotiator and very persuasive. He is very realistic and "up front" and easy to communicate with and deal with. He was very responsive and pleasant, explaining each requirement or answering our questions. I would definitely recommend him to anyone in the area.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $375K in Portsmouth, RI.

Selling a home is often a stressful experience. We had listed and took the advice of a previous realtor, setting a price that we felt was fair and our home sat for months with very little activity even after lowering the price by 20,000! We let it rest and met with Tom. It was the best move we made. The reality of what a home is worth is only what someone is willing to pay set in. Knowing the trends, the current market, as well as the area is a must. Tom came through on everything and in one month we had an offer. Yes we are selling for much less than what was originally expected but it is done, with a fair appraisal, and fast. Do your family a favor and don't waste a year of your time waiting for the perfect offer with any other realtor. Tom is a savvy businessman who gets the job done with honesty and has a network of valuable resources at his disposal. He made a stressful experience run like clockwork, taking care of every detail. I would recommend him to anyone.  More Less

Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $125K in Tiverton, RI.

Tom is among the best in his field. Fortunately, he is also the real estate agent that my deceased mother made me promise to retain when it came time to sell our condominium and take up residency in the family home I inherited at her death. Thus there was no conflict between what I had promised to do and what it was clearly in my own interest to do! He was not able to find a buyer at the price my husband and I had hoped for; but that was because the market is what the market is. His effort was 100%, as was our own at making sure the condo we were leaving was in excellent condition and very worth the price that was finally agreed upon. His dealings were fair to all parties; his advice was reliable because his experience and his ethics are of the highest caliber. I would recommend him without reservation to anyone who would like to either sell or purchase property, knowing that his skill and his dedication cannot be either faulted or excelled.
