Buying a first home can be a daunting process, we knew going into buying a house that it was going to a harrowing process of looking at listings, setting up appointments (COVID Changed the whole home buying and selling process upside down), putting up offers in one of the most competitive seller market in a long time to finally closing it. So we decided to seek the services of a very experienced Realtor who could advocate for us as the Buyers Agent . If you are a first time home buyer like us and not very experienced in the whole process of buying the house ,trust me a senior and experienced buyer agent is a MUST. And I can say for a fact , we could not have got a better agent other than Tom. I like to research a lot and I usually am thorough, but the whole home buying process was new to me. Tom made it a team project. From the day we sat down to discuss on what we wanted, he spoke in thorough details about creating a game plan on approaching the sellers with the best offers and the right offers , not just try to outbid everyone but make sure the bid was right for the right property. We did look into a lot of properties , and not once was Tom not available to get the date and time I requested for an appointment. He always had all the paper work, property assessment for prices of houses in the area, visual observation of the property while we were doing the walkthrough and in many occasions his inputs were true to the point and I am glad we walked away without putting an offer. He never made us rush, or push us to put an offer, he always had his professional opinions put forward for us to take a decision. When we did get an offer accepted, from that point on to the date of closing I almost had daily discussions on multiple different aspects of pre closing to closing like inspections, follow up on inspections, procuring contractors to get a second opinion on one inspection issue to finally the day of closing when he actually stayed back with our son while we went for closing. Who does that leaving their business for an entire day to let us close on the property just because of COVID and the attorney’s office not allowing young children to come in. He stayed on close contact with the Sellers agent, followed up on multiple other items for us and the best part was that he was always there when we needed via call or text. The fact that I am writing a detailed experience of mine with him goes to say the kind of agent you would get. Home buying can be a nightmare at times, having a professional like Tom in that process would make it easy and if you are looking to get a professional by your side, you will never be disappointed with the professional and friendly services that Tom brings to the table. We are very lucky and very happy that we had him in our first home buying experience.
