Tom Ladd
Howard Hanna Real Estate
About Tom

I am Tom Ladd and I am an licensed real estate associate broker with Howard Hanna Real Estate. I am married and have 5 beautiful children. I grew up in the Liverpool, NY area and have lived in Central NY my entire life. I am very involved in my kid's school and after school activites and have been a youth basketball coach for the past 5 years. My family is very important and definitely keeps me busy. I worked in the mortgage industry for several years before entering the real estate industry 12 years ago. My previous work in the mortgage industry really allows me to give valuable insight to my clients that most other agents do not have. After 5 years in the real estate industry, I started my real estate company, Premier Realty Group, in 2006. After several successful years owning Premier Realty Group, I decided to merge with the CNY Agent Team and together we joined Realty USA, which then became Howard Hanna Real Estate. This offered me the opportunity to expand even further and offer prospective buyers and sellers the next level of service through technology and building relationships. What I Provide There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional - integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills and a high-quality professional network, all of which are hallmarks of how I work. That said, in my experience as a Syracuse real estate professional, I've also found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting my clients first. This means keeping myself accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator, and responding quickly to your needs. This "client first" philosophy has always been my approach and it requires me to continually improve my skills and ways of doing business. In addition, I've found that the latest technologies are enabling me to do everything I've always done, only much more quickly and efficiently. They've also helped me to extend the range of services I provide to my clients. My Results Over The Past 5 Years 2017 - Personal - 49 Transactions for $8.5 Million CNYAgent Team - 191 Transactions for $$26.5 Million #1 Team in CNY in Total Transactions and Volume 2016 - Personal - 46 Transactions for $8.7 Million CNYAgent Team - 221 Transactions for $30.5 Million #1 Team in CNY in Total Transactions and Volume 2015 - Personal - 55 Transactions for $9.0 Million CNYAgent Team - 176 Transactions for $27 Million Top 2% of 1600 CNY Agents in Total Transactions and Volume #1 Team In CNY in Total Transactions and Volume 2014 - 44 Transactions For $6.5 Million Top 4% of 1600+ CNY Agents in Total Transactions and Volume 2013 - 45 Transactions For $6.4 Million Top 20 of 1600+ CNY Agents in Exclusive Buyer Agent Transactions Top 4% of 1600 CNY Agents in Total Transaction and Volume I have been able to achieve my success because of my relationship with my clients and the importance that I place on their home buying or selling experience. When making the decision on choosing an agent to represent you, wouldn't you want to work with a top producer. Make the right choice and contact me today!

What does a top real estate agent do?

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Syracuse?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload. Selling a home takes an enormous amount of work, so you need an agent who’s got a plan for prep, pricing, and marketing and who is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the job done.

A great agent makes a difference when you buy a house, too: We’ve found that the top 5% of buyer's agents on average save their clients 2.5% more on their home purchase.

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Syracuse?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date. When you start the search for an agent several months before hitting the market, there’s plenty of time to find the best agent, make key renovations, and market your home effectively, all of which are essential steps in selling your home for a great price. You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell in Syracuse to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell in Syracuse is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
