Ratings & Reviews

My husband and I embarked on a journey to purchase our first home and we knew NOTHING about what we were doing. We relied on Tom Hill completely for his guidance and expertise. He was more than accomadating to our needs and wants when going through the home buying process. He was very responsive and went out of his way in search of the home that best suited our needs. His knowledge of the area was also a huge help in determining where we wanted to purchase a home. He is a very relaxed and laid back individual but yet aggressive at the same time when it comes to getting the buyer what they need. He always has your best interests at heart and speaks honestly to you as a person. If you are thinking of purchasing a home in the Rochester, MN area, I would recommend Tom Hill without thinking twice about it!

Bought a home in 2013 in Rochester, MN 55901.

Our home search was very unique where we had defined needs while the place in town was not very clear at the time. Tom was patient and walked through countless number of homes until we are fully satisfied. He was straight forward and helped with the search until we found the best match. At times when he can see we are rushing in to decisions without a good match, he would lay the facts and say, to wait for the next house. I liked the fact that we had the freedom to look at the properties we liked, not what he wanted us to see. Unlike other realtor we had no contract but had the trust of a good realtor. We got the best house for the best price and we are enjoying every bit of it.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $175K in Rochester, MN.

We came across Tom by happy coincidence. He was selling a house we were interested in so we contacted him. That house ended up not working out. Tom was so knowledgeable and friendly we decided to have him show us some other houses. What should have been a quick easy sale for Tom turned into a year long journey to find a house. Tom was always willing to show us whatever houses we requested, even if they were a little farther away. We never felt pressured to settle for a house. He was very understanding of the huge commitment it is to buy a house and wanted to be sure we were completely happy with our home. Tom would spend as much time at each of the houses as we wanted, never making us feel like we had to move on to the next or he had to get somewhere else. He was easy and fun to talk to. Tom asked us a lot of questions about what we were looking for in a house so that he could search and find us houses to look at. Tom had a lot of information to share not only about the market and housing in the Rochester area, but also about how to make improvements on homes and what it may cost ballpark to update things. It was nice to have an estimate on how much it would cost to make the house our own. Upon finding a house, Tom was quick with my negotiation responses and handled everything very professionally. When we ran into speed bumps close to closing Tom went above and beyond to make sure we got everything we were entitled to and worked it out with the selling agent. Tom was very good at communicating during the process to make sure we were on the same page. It gave me peace of mind knowing that Tom would handle and work everything out for us. I would recommend Tom to anyone interested in selling or buying a house and would use him again in the future should I move.
