  • Thomas helped me buy a home

      Thom helped us secure a home we love during a very competitive market for buyers. 5 stars!

    • Thomas listed and sold my home

        Thomas is an amazing realtor. I decided to sell my condo after moving back into my old house, and having never sold a property before I was a bit intimidated by the process -- so many boxes to check, so much prep to do, and a lot of steps before the transaction gets done. Also, being in an old building that wasn't without its warts, I was concerned about getting sufficient buyer traffic to get us to a deal. Thomas was incredible from the moment we started working together. He connected me to staging and cleaning folks, coordinated their arrival and work, and I barely had to lift a finger beyond paying the invoices. We moved out March 5th and the place was staged and listed by that weekend, less than a week after we'd departed. Thomas drove a lot of buyer activity on the property between marketing and open houses, and given that we were listing a condo it was pretty impressive to see the amount of foot traffic. We had offers within the first week. Thomas negotiated deftly to get us the best possible offer, and at every step of the process his instincts were spot on: he knew when to push, when to give a little, and when to strike a deal. We ended up closing at nearly $4,000 over our asking price, even without having multiple competing bids. Thomas really knows how to sell the value of the property he's listing and (perhaps more importantly) how to fit the right motivated buyer to the right property, which can be the difference between a painful and expensive transaction and one that moves quickly. I would recommend Thomas wholeheartedly for buying or selling your property. He's also a wonderful guy: funny, clearheaded, calm, communicative, and professional. Give him a call!

      • Thomas listed and sold my home

          I don't have enough words to express my gratitude for all Thomas did in handling the sale of my condo. He made sure I had a clear understanding of the entire process, and he managed coordination of all of the vendors necessary to prep the property, since I am out of state. His A+ standards led to me getting three offers, two of which were $25,000 over asking price, in less than 24 hours of listing. Not only was Thomas super professional and on the ball with every detail, but he was also very empathetic to the emotions that come with selling a property. I was busy juggling a cross country move and was so stressed, and he really helped take so much pressure off of me. 5 stars is not enough to show how awesome Thomas is!

        • Thomas listed and sold my home

            Thomas and his team were communicative, kind, and calm through what can be a very stressful process. He negotiated with the the buyer's agent and kept us updated on every single thing we needed to know as the sale was pending. We are very happy with this level of expertise. He did everything necessary to complete the sale, while being fair, direct, and open minded to our feedback. I would highly recommend him and his team for both selling and buying a home!

          • Thomas helped me buy a home

              Thomas and his team recently helped my family buy our first home. His communication was excellent from beginning to end. As first-time home buyers we had a lot to learn, and Thomas walked us through every step. He is very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. It took us a while to find a good match, but Thomas was with us for every up and down. We are very happy with our purchase and the process. I highly recommend working with Thomas and the Piece of PDX team.

            • Thomas is an amazing agent. Knowledgeable, proficient in his craft, amiable, and professional. He helped me find the perfect home and provided expert and timely advise prior to and throughout the home buying process. Even after the close of the sale, he continues to be an excellent resource for all things real estate related. Altogether an amazing agent.

            • Thomas is a realtor superhero. I bought my first home under serious market pressure this year. I absolutely credit Thomas with turning a tricky process into a success. Thomas and his partner, Patrik, made it their mission to help me meet my goals, stay within budget, and find the perfect place for me--not only that, but we did it with only one offer. Thomas and Patrik worked side-by-side with my awesome loan officer to manage the moving parts of a complex transaction during an unusually high volume time of year. Despite overlapping with three federal holidays, we closed in fewer than 30 business days! Thomas also helped me with half a dozen contractor recommendations, which was invaluable to me as a first-time homeowner. I will recommend Thomas every chance I get!

            • From the very beginning Thomas listened to our wants and found great properties that truly aligned with our needs. Moreover, as we began to adjust our list of desires and must-haves, he adapted immediately to our changes. As first-time home buyers, it was very important that we had someone on our team with whom we felt comfortable to ask questions and challenge the process. As we learned the housing market, we wanted a knowledgeable person by our side with our best interest at heart. Thomas was all of those things and more. We had tons of questions and had frequent, thorough communication via phone calls, emails, and texts. So many different questions and ideas came up that I feared our constant questions and wonderings would become a nuisance to him. But Thomas was always responsive and never seemed bothered. In fact, he seemed to enjoy our constant communication and took pleasure in sharing every detail of the home-buying journey with us.Once we found a home, Thomas led us through every step of the way including putting in an offer, negotiating with the seller (we ended up not having to pay any closing costs), finding bids for credits towards fixes around the house, and making sure a mountain of paperwork got to us in a timely manner for us to review and sign. Thomas even connected us with a top rate mortgage broker who got us an excellent deal. Thomas is A1 and we've found the professionals he works with to be of the same quality. Thomas isn't just our real estate agent; He's become a friend for life. We will certainly use him again when the opportunity arises and recommend him every chance we get!

            • Thomas worked tirelessly obtaining the best price and deal for the sale of my home. His patience and negotiations secured a sale above the asking price while keeping me informed of offer details during the sale. In addition, Thomas's integrity insured that all persons who requested to view the home were allowed to do so even though there was multiple acceptable offers after the first day of showing. Thomas reviewed each offer with me personally and explained in layman's terms the details of each offer and advised me accordingly. We accepted an offer for my Gresham home after only 4 days on the market and the sale closed in two weeks after acceptance of the offer. Without a doubt this was made possible because of Thomas's knowledge, negotiations, integrity and patience. I would highly recommend Thomas as your real estate agent regardless if you are selling or buying a home.
