Sold a Single Family home in 2001 for approximately $300K in Altadena, CA.
We have had the pleasure of both selling and buying our homes through Tom Bowers. He really knows the neighborhoods he represents and will be honest and upfront about properties. Terrific personality combined with good business/investment sense. Very responsive & easy to talk to. He has our unequivocal recommendation. Great guy!

Tom was the epitome of prefessionalism, yet warm and personable.
He did not make assumptions, but tried to ensure that all of our home buying objectives were met within the budget span specified. He would bring possibilities to the table and explored every opportunity. My faith in him led to a friendship with both he and his partner, Gail, and my life long friend entrusted the sales of her home to him. He handeld the sale flawlessly, and I would not hesitate to wholeheartedly endorse him.
Found a tenant for a Condo home in South Pasadena, CA.
Tom Bowers is an extremely honest professional realtor. He helped me prepare a home for rental and was very helpful in doing that. He then listed the property for rental and was very helpful in finding a tenant. I HIGHLY recommend him.

Tom helped my wife and I buy our first house. He has the perfect balance we needed of someone who let us explore for what we wanted (or thought we wanted), but he would also offer gentle suggestions if we were heading toward making a bad decision. In retrospect, all his suggestions were spot on. In fact, we weren't even considering the town he suggested we take a look at, and now I can't imagine living anywhere else.
If/when we decide to sell this house and buy another, we will definitely be contacting Tom again.
Thankful we were able to have an agent like Tom to help us find the kind of house we were looking for in the kind of neighborhood we wanted. He was there for us at closing when we needed him most and has since been a welcomed contact in the real estate business.
This may look like one of those phony reviews, but it's not. I've bought and sold six homes using his skills to locate properties and negotiate the deals. I just closed on house number 6 on 9/6/13. I can't say enough about the success I've had (plus the great returns on my investments) in the homes I've bought and sold with his help. I can tell you I wouldn't have been able to do it without his years of experience in this field. He's not going to cater to you if you are going the wrong direction, he's going to set you straight, so you need to put aside your amateur realtor role and be ready to follow his lead. If you do, you won't be sorry. He's so good, this latest home may be the one I stay in, and I don't like to stay put. Oh well! Lucky me, I have a great home now.

Tom understood our position, desires & most importantly timeframe. He delivered a remarkable presentation that was thorough, detailed & extremely professional! Quite frankly, we were just a bit shocked on what an amazing job he did in getting our home listed. Our place sold in one week, over asking price. But more importantly, Tom didn't move on to other opportunities & leave us to the stress of the closing solely on our own. He was there every step of the way - options, suggestions & additional opportunities. Tom is a solid professional you can depend on when selling your home!
