My 30+ years in Real Estate, both as an Agent and a Certified Real Estate Appraiser, have given me the skills and knowledge to work with both buyers and sellers. With over 8,000 appraisals completed in Santa Clara County alone, I can "specialize" in any zip code or market.

My knowledge extends to what is beneficial in regards to repairing and remodeling homes. I know what should be done and what shouldn't. Not everything brings back your investment. Many upgrades actually give a return higher than the investment. The house on Somerville in my sales list was worth only about $1,000,000 prior to spending $125k on remodeling. The sellers doubled their investment with a final sales price of $1,250,000. The same was true for the Ensalmo sale. It was worth less than $700k prior to a $45k investment in repairs and upgrades and it sold for $780,000, again doubling the sellers investment. I have contacts that do quality work, for a reasonable price, which helps sell the property in any type of market. Conversely, if I work with a buyer, I know what kind of remodeling is valuable and what is excessive. I have successfully worked with buyers in the most recent very tough markets. I listened to their needs and desires and take the time to find the right house. 
In many of the cases working with buyers, the process has taken more than 6 months due to the difficulty of the market.

    Sold a home in 2013.
    He helped us purchase our current residence as well as the one before that. It took 5 months to find the right house, but he was very patient and did a lot of the preliminary leg work for us ("Come and see this one quickly" or "Don't bother looking at this one, its not what you want.") He also listed and sold our previous residence and more recently sold a residential investment property for us.  MoreLess

    Bought a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $550K in Santa Teresa, San Jose, CA.
    Tom helped us find our wonderful home in San Jose in 2008/2009. We were very impressed by his patience in showing us homes and making offers when many properties were short sales (which often took a long time and eventually didn't pan out). He spent many weekends over a period of more than a year with us until we finally found our home. We never felt pressured or rushed by Tom, which was very important to us.

    What makes Tom unique is that he has worked as a real estate appraiser for many years. His background was extremely helpful in assessing what a fair price would be, and he often identified strengths and problems that he saw in a specific property. His insights were invaluable in deciding which properties to pursue.

    Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $800K in Cambrian Park, San Jose, CA.
    Tom Feasby is a true Real Estate Professional, experienced in every aspect, from appraisal to repairs, remodels and market analysis, to marketing, negotiating, and closing the sale. On top of all of this, Tom is a true gentleman, and an absolute pleasure to work with.

    I was referred to Tom in 2005 by my long time tax accountant to have an appraisal done. Tom did the job quickly, thoroughly, and with impeccable documentation. Six years later, remembering the service I received, I called Tom for another appraisal job. This time I would also need some guidance on current market conditions for selling or renting the family home. This is when I learned that Tom is also a licensed Real Estate Agent. The more we talked I started to realize that this was the guy to have in my corner!

    Early in 2013 I decided to sell, but needed help deciding what to do to improve the property, so I called Tom. We met, discussed options, and then Tom went off and prepared a list of recommendations and cost estimates. He said that he had done work with many different trades, and had contractors ready to help. We decided on a course of action, and Tom stepped up and coordinated everything! The contractors were expert craftsmen….real pros in what they do! From finish carpentry to drywall, paint, electrical and plumbing, he brought in a superb team to refurbish my home. Each and every one treated my home as if it were their own. They took pride in their work. My level of confidence with Tom was so high that my responses to his questions became “you decide, Tom.”

    Tom stays on top of current trends, and knows what buyers are looking for. With Tom’s guidance, we were able to hold down cost, while maximizing return. The home came out better than I ever expected, completed on time, and right on budget. Best of all, the home sold in about a week!

    The personal touch is a big part of what sets Tom apart from others. He works for his clients, is always on top of what needs to be done, and kept me informed every step of the way. Tom Feasby has earned my highest recommendation for all your Real Estate needs.
