Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $550K in Swarthmore, PA.
We cannot overstate how happy we are with our decision to choose Tom as our buyer’s agent! We were what you might call a “challenging client”: We knew exactly what we wanted – location within a few blocks of a specific SEPTA station, house of a certain size and age and charm and of course a reasonable price…and all that in an area where maybe two dozen homes sell every year. Tom LISTENED and understood our needs and then guided us through the process with remarkable professionalism. It took 9 months, thanks to our pickiness, yet Tom remained patient and supportive – not once showing signs of unease when we decided against house after house after house. When we did find the right house, he was quick to show it to us – we were the first clients to see the house – and skillful in the negotiation process. Less than 48 hours after we presented our offer, we had the house – at a great price, and with very reasonable stipulations for closing. The closing process was stress-free, not the least because Tom (and a wonderful seller’s agent) actively guided the process so effectively. We have experienced so-so realtor services in years past, and we worried about an unpleasant, even adversarial process all the way up to, and possibly past, closing. Which consumer doesn’t, right? We are not experts, we needed competent help – and we sure got it from Tom. We plan on living in our new house for many, many years; but whenever friends and relatives will ask us about our recommendation for a trustworthy and highly competent realtor in the Philadelphia area, we will refer them to Tom Toole, III.

Sold a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $275K in Wharton-Hawthorne-Bella Vista, Philadelphia, PA.
Tom was amazing. We had listed our home with another realtor and after 9 months it just wasn't selling. Not only did Tom help us find our new home, but he was able to sell our house in less than a month. We had more showings in the first 10 days then we did the first 2 months with our original realtor. Tom had a great plan for marketing our house which he explained at our first meeting. We followed his plan and we were able to sell our home quickly. He is very professional, an excellent communicator and very knowledgable about the Philadelphia-area housing market.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $325K in Narberth, PA.
Tom was great to work with and it is apparent that he is an expert in his industry. I had my family home of 72 years on the market for a full year in 2011 with another agency and we received no offers. Once I took it off the market, I had many real estate agents contact me. Tom was the only one who followed up with his call and email which won him the re-listing job! I have been a sales person for over 30 years so follow up is very important to me. Tom said his goal was to help me sell my home within 30-60 days. I signed with him in April and closed on the sale in June. He made it very easy for us to do business from a long distance - we live in GA. Tom was always easy to contact and he followed up immediately on all items. He is very logical in his thinking and shows he truly cares for his clients which makes him a great business man. I would recommend Tom to anyone who needs a real estate agent in the Main Line PA area.

Bought a home in 2012.
Tom really gets to know his clients and seeks to establish a long term partnership rather than simply performing a one-off transaction. He was flexible with scheduling appointments, responsive, and professional. He found us a home that met each and every one of our search parameters, and made the transaction as seamless as possible. We will absolutely use him again.

Sold a Single Family home in 2010 in Havertown, PA.
I loved working with Tom. As a real estate professional myself, I was pretty demanding of Tom and he didn't let me down. I was in a situation where I needed to sell my current property, purchase a new property and keep my kids in the same school district. I was very worried because of issues with the economy and low home sales. I did interview several people but selected Tom because I felt he was the right balance of aggressive salesman with the ability to communicate and deal with people effectively.

I made the right choice in Tom. I had an agreement on my property in 6 weeks and while that deal didn't ultimately work out, Tom led me to the next deal in which both the buyer and seller ended up happy from what could have been a bad situation in a bad market.

I give referrals for Tom whenever someone I know if looking for a realtor.

Thanks Tom!

Bought a Condo home in 2011 for approximately $300K in Fairmount-Spring Garden, Philadelphia, PA.
Tom worked very hard to help my fiance and I find the perfect place. We were first time home buyers, and he was regularly available to chat about the process, what types of properties we were interested in buying, and answer any questions we had. Tom was also very patient and enthusiastic, as he took the time to accompany us to many different properties before we found the one we wanted. We even changed our mind from a house in the suburbs to a condo in the city, and Tom was incredibly knowledgeable and experienced with both types of properties, as well as each of the areas we looked (multiple suburbs and multiple Philadelphia neighborhoods). Once we picked out our place, Tom worked very closely with us to negotiate a good deal. Tom was a great negotiator, and knew many ways to create the best deal possible for us. As an attorney, I had plenty of my own ideas on how to negotiate the terms of the deal, and Tom was very receptive to all of my ideas, and helped refine them in a way that got us exactly what we wanted. Bottomline, Tom was great to work with throughout the entire process, and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for any type of property, whether in the city or the suburbs.

Bought a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $275K in Telford, PA.
As first-time homebuyers, we found working with Tom to be a great experience. Even though our home search took him way beyond his local area, he was accomodating and traveled all over Montgomery County with us to find the right place. When the sellers tried to give us a raw deal during negotiations, and Tom went to bat for us, making sure we got the best deal possible. He was honest throughout the entire process and educated us along the way. We learned a lot from working with him. He's continued to keep in touch with us and it seems that he genuinely cares that we are happy with our home. We look forward to working with him again when it comes time to sell!

Sold a home in 2009.
I had two other realtors before Tom, both of whom let deals fall through. When Tom took over, I had several offers within 10 days. He set up a web service so I could see feedback almost immediatly and also spoke to the other agents to see if there was anything I could do or change to improve my listing. He took professional pics and really presented my home in a positive manner. Tom is a advocate for your listing and knows how to negotitiate a great deal, dealing with him was beyond a positive experience!

Sold a Condo home in 2008 for approximately $225K in Exton, PA.
I called Tom because I had been disenchanted with my previous realtor and within six weeks, my home was sold. It was a very smooth process overall and Tom is very professional.

I worked with Tom to purchase my South Philadelphia home and through the process he was incredibly thorough and professional and would go above and beyond my expectations to help me through my first time buying a house.
