Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Sheffield, MA.
Tom is an OUTSTANDING realtor and we couldn't have been happier in our experience with him. He is deeply knowledgeable about the area and extremely responsive to questions, often answering emails within an hour of having received them. We were looking for a property that could accommodate 2 families, making it a more challenging search than finding a common single family home. He listened attentively to our ideas, made careful notes during our multiple visits and then worked seemingly around the clock to find us the perfect place. We never felt that he pushed us to buy a particular property -- it was very clear he had our best interests in mind and wanted to steer us toward a property that we would make us happy. Tom really worked hard for us, sending us links to different properties almost on a daily basis. He fined tuned his search as we provided feedback. The long and short of it is he found the perfect place for us within two months. His deft advice regarding pricing and negotiation allowed us to purchase the home significantly below the asking price. He is honest to a fault and very personable. If you want the BEST realtor in the Berkshires, don't hesitate to contact him!
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Southfield, MA.
This is the second time we've used Tom Lynch as our realtor in the Berkshires. The first time was to sell our first vacation home in a tough market in Great Barrington in 2009. The second was to buy a new vacation home in New Marlborough in October, 2014. In both cases, Tom exceeded expectations and we would recommend him highly.
Tom is highly knowledgeable about area listings, the local market, and real estate trends in the vacation home market. He is not afraid to offer his opinions and point of view, and is a trusted advisor. He is highly responsive and a good communicator. His style is helpful and supportive, and he has a very laid-back approach to his job, never too pushy. He is a truth teller and assertive when he needs to be, but recognizes that a vacation home search should also be fun and as relaxing as possible, not stressful. Also of note is that Tom represents Berkshire Property Agents, one of the largest real estate agencies in the Berkshires, so he has access to all of their listings and to a network of other agents in the company to rely on. This cannot be underestimated.
In this purchase, things got stressful because after inspection, the house required a new septic system and a radon remediation system. Tom helped us navigate through these issues to a successful conclusion.
I would highly recommend Tom Lynch as your real estate agent, you won't be disappointed.

Tom figured out the type of property we were looking for very early on and he found it for us! Easy to reach and available - always willing to find out an answer to a question if he did not know off the top of his head. A really good guy!

Although certainly not one of his higher priced properties I found that Tom invested both the time and energy into making it happen. After an offer has been made there are so many steps in the process and Tom not only initiates he is also available night and day to field questions.

He only showed us properties that fit the criteria we were looking for, and didn't waste our time. Tom is extremely responsive and was a pleasure to work with.

Mr. Lynch demonstrated consummate skills in listening to our needs and helped interpret them into prospective properties. What a pleasure to work with Tom. The focus a was always on how we envisioned ourselves in homes. Never did we feel any pressure, or any rushing through the process. Tom is always extremely prompt and flexible to our needs. He helped us investigate properties all over the map. We always seemed to arrive on time when meeting other agents.
Tom is very easy to relate to and conversational when discussing the real estate advantages of various locations.
It seems to us that a major strength In the negotiation process was for Tom to be very realistic and helpful in guiding us to understand the Berkshire housing market.
We highly recommend him as an agent, whether buyers are interested in a primary residence or second home.

It was a pleasure to work with Tom Lynch on our recent quest to find our dream country home in the Berkshires. Tom understood our needs and desires completely and was always responsive to our questions and accommodating to our schedules and flexible given the crazy weather challenges we continually faced during the process! During the tricky negotiating part of the experience, Tom was supportive and gave us wise advice. We could not be happier with the outcome.
