Tomio and Grant go out of their way, and really care about your home search. They are always available to talk to day and night, and know well what kind of house you are looking for. I had an experience with a real estate agent prior to meeting Tomio, and I was told that I should have 20% down in order to seriously begin the process of looking for a home. On the other hand, Tomio and Grant were optimistic and helped us find our house despite the fact that we didn't have a lot of money. They really strive hard to find your perfect home that is within your budget. We couldn't be anymore satisfied with their results. Their extraordinary passion for their profession is clear in their hard work. And, if you work with Tomio, make sure you see 'Ca$h,' his adorable dog!

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $600K in Oak Creek, Irvine, CA.

Tomio's knowledge of the local market and attention to detail in the negotiation process helped to get me a great price and delivered a very smooth closing process on my home in Irvine. In spite of low inventory and high demand in the area, Tomio's effective representation of me as a strong buyer to the seller's agent gave the seller the confidence to accept a below appraisal offer over an alternate offer that was considerably higher. Tomio is a real professional and a great guy to work with...

Helped me rent a Single Family home in West Park, Irvine, CA.

If you are looking for a knowledgeable agent/broker, I highly recommend working with Tomio and Grant. The team performed admirably in the midst of my move to California. Grant was patient as I made and changed decisions, making recommendations based on my needs and not his financial interests. He listened to what I wanted and that's what he showed me. Grant refrained from showing me properties that may have resulted in higher commissions. His knowledge was advantageous during my search in Irvine because he knew what areas had the properties that fit my lifestyle. Because of Team Tomio, I have a gorgeous home, in a great neighborhood, with great amenities, and oh by the way, my Fiance, who isn't here yet, is excited. Who could ask for more than a happy Fiance!?!

Thanks Team Tomio for introducing me to Irvine, CA!

Helped me rent a home in Oak Creek, Irvine, CA 92618.

We initially worked with Tomio, but he later passed us off to his colleague Grant Loel. Grant was VERY patient, understanding and worked with us to get exactly what we wanted. Although the price range was a bit higher than what we expected to pay, we are satisfied. Team Tomio will definitely be on our list of MUST work with when we are ready to purchase the home of our dreams. Grant and Tomio are definitely two great realtors in the area. They actually listen and work on your behalf to help you get what you want. We are truly thankful.

Bought a home in 2009 in Galivan, Laguna Hills, CA 92653.

I was attempting to be a first time home buyer in 2009 when i met Tomio Nishimuta via telephone. I had been attempting to search for forclosures independently using sites such as zillow. I saw a house that i was curious about so i called the phone number for the listing agent and proceeded to have a 45 min conversation with someone i had never even met. Never did i ever feel that this person on the other end of the phone was trying to sell me ( and im in the sales industry). I met with Tomio days later and the rest is history as they say. As i look back on the whole experience i must have been a real estate agents nightmare. I wasnt prequalified for a loan yet, i wanted to look at 10+ cities, and every home for sale in each of those cities. The agents that i know on a personal basis would have walked away from a client like me, but not Tomio. I dont know how Tomio held his composure and showed the patience that he did. Tomio has helped me accomplish one of my biggest goals thus far in an extremely professional manner and not to mention in a very difficult market. I am not one to recommend ANYONE, but Tomio is definately an exception to my rule. I would say that Tomio's biggest asset by far is that he will tell it to you strait, the stuff that you dont want to hear, the stuff that most agents dont tell you. I would reccomend Tomio to my mother. The sooner you talk with Tomio, the sooner you will have a confident handle on your real estate needs.

Sincerely, Matt Fletcher Laguna Hills, CA

Sold a home in 2004.

Tomio has helped me with buying and selling my house twice. He has always been very professional and responsive with my home buying needs. As we were moving from San Diego, we were very dependent on Tomio's neighborhood knowledge to help us find a home in the right area/school district for us. We were very happy with the help and service he gave to us.

Bought a Condo home in 2011 for approximately $525K in Aliso Viejo, CA.

I found Tomio through Zillow, and am so glad I trusted in the reviews and decided he was the right man for the job. Tomio and his wife make a great team. They balance each other and gave my husband and I different perspectives when looking at homes and locations. He's a great communicator, always on top of things and following up on deadlines. He was always there to reassure us whenever we hit a road bump. It was surprisingly a very smooth and fast experience.

Bought a home in 2011 in Aliso Viejo, CA 92656.

Tomio surprised me with his tenacity, organization, and consistent performance. He followed through on every commitment he made and went the extra mile on literally EVERY task. We were new to California and were trying to find the right agent, and Tomio was a clearly superior to the competition.

I love how he applied a personal touch to the entire experience. I got a great home, saved money, and found a new friend in him. What more could you ask for?

Bought a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $575K in Costa Mesa, CA.

Very good experience with Tomio. He knew the overall process well and was able to help us negotiate on items with the house that we would not have known were available. Also was very helpful in calming us through very stressful time of negotiation and loan funding.
