“We were very nervous about selling our home, but your guidance, expertise, and patience was what we needed. We were counting on the sale to fund our retirement, so we couldn’t make a mistake. And, I like that you were able to provide suppliers when we needed them. The video, brochure and social tools were excellent. I am still pinching myself that we sold for full cash and a fast closing. I really appreciate your help in and pointing out what needed to be repaired and refreshed and how to properly market our home.”

“My husband and I have purchased and sold multiple homes in Southern California and Arizona. We have had a range of experiences and relationships with our past realtors, none as exceptional as with Tom Fine. He is exceptionally knowledgeable about all things construction, and has a “Can Do” spirit. In summary, Tom turned something that is, at times, quite stressful into a pleasurable experience.”

“In the end we found a house we wanted to make an offer on and Tom was able to calmly handle negotiations, helping to secure the house below the asking price in a highly competitive real estate market. He kept us in the loop every step of the way.
Our family recently relocated from Australia to Seattle and decided to purchase a home. Luckily for us, we found Tom. Tom was able to explain the real estate market and buying and selling process in Seattle (which differs greatly from what we were used to in Australia). He was very flexible and understanding in his approach and his availability.”

Tom represented them as home buyers
“Tom is the best agent you will find. He went above and beyond in helping us get our place ready to list. We worked with him to sell, and buy, a home at the same time, and we ended up having to close in just two weeks on both. He was super knowledgeable and responsive.
His prior experience as a builder was helpful with both listing our old house and looking at new homes. He made things go as smoothly as possible. As if all of that isn't enough, he is just a super nice guy, easy going, and fun to work with. We recommend him highly for both buying and selling a home.”

Tom was their seller and buyer’s agent
“I met Tom at an open house. He walked me through the house and, using his contractor background, told me what was good and bad about the house. After going to many more open houses and meeting many more realtors, we decided to go with Tom as our realtor for buying our first home in West Seattle. His knowledge as a realtor and contractor were invaluable!
The process of buying a home is overwhelming and convoluted and Tom did a wonderful job patiently answering questions and teaching us everything we needed to know as first-timers; his support didn't end after the deal was done. He is very dedicated to his job and clients and knows the Seattle (and surrounding area) market very well. It was really nice to have full confidence in our realtor and to have him on our side.”

Tom was their buyer’s agent
“Although we were excited by several homes, Tom educated us as to each of the rejected properties’ flaws. For example, he made us aware of the one lovely bargain condo which turned out to be facing a $200,000 roof repair and supplemental condo dues assessment…nothing that showed up on paper.
We whole-heartedly recommend him as an agent. Most importantly, Tom was never selling—he was looking for the right house for us. He guided us through a short list of likely candidates, and then advised us not to purchase most of them. Additionally, after the sale, Tom connected us with a group of contractors—wood flooring, painting and landscaping. We have never had a better experience with contractors—and the same goes for Tom.”
