BEST WE HAVE EVER WORKED WITH. This is our 5th home purchase, as we relocate every couple of years. We do not have enough positive things to say about Tommy & Lisa - their service and expertise was exceptional from day 1 until close of escrow, and they are continuing to provide us with recommendations for our home improvements! We felt like we were their only customers every day. We bought our home remotely, sight unseen, and they were our eyes and ears throughout the entire process. We had complete trust that they would find the right home for our criteria. Even when our lender dropped the ball, Lisa & Tommy were right there to pick it up. Whether you are a first time home buyer or a seasoned real estate investor - Tommy & Lisa are the experts you want negotiating your deal.
Exemplary Help. Talented Team. THE BEST!
I wish I could write 10 reviews of 6 stars for Tommy and Lisa. Our process was really unexpected. We had just started *thinking * about looking when we met them at an open house. After talking to us for a few minutes it was clear that house wasn't the right house for us, but they offered to come by to see ours and see if it was the right time to sell.
They didn't blow us off because they were not going to sell that house to us ,or because our home wasn’t worth as much as some in Ladera Ranch. Their data-driven, strongly networked, and rational real estate approach was impressive. In 20 minutes they had us walking out the door of that "drive-by" open house saying to each other ,"Did we just meet the people who will sell our house, that we didn't think we'd be able to sell?"
They have provided exemplary assistance from marketing strategy , to painters, to flooring and staging. They have an excellent network of professional partners. They helped us turn our cute-but-dated end unit into a stunner. We put ourselves completely in their hands and we have not been disappointed. Their instincts are just amazing. They KNOW Ladera Ranch.
Knowledgeable, friendly, hardworking; they've truly been our advocates and in less than 3 days on the market we have multiple offers above asking. They helped us remain focused and positive in the face of the inevitable challenges and worries the sellers encounter.
I would highly recommend them to anyone who wants a savvy and dedicated team. They complement each other so well and are natural real estate talent. If you're even thinking about selling and buying in South Orange County give them a call and they will give you the good news and help you find strategies to work around challenges.
Thank you Tommy and Lisa!
My husband and I worked with Tommy to purchase our first home, I can tell you that we are exceptionally pleased with his knowledge, patience, work ethic and the time we spent together. We met Tommy at an open house in Stoneridge, after explaining what we wanted and where we were at budget wise Tommy immediately suggested 2 neighborhoods, one was the neighborhood we eventually purchased in he was spot on!
Honestly it took us a while to find the right house, my husband and I went back and forth on what was important and what we were willing to spend. Tommy stayed right there with us as we changed plans and eventually found the right home.
I can tell you, that while it was frustrating to look and look. I was personally glad it took about 4 months to get to know Tommy before the process really started. Once the ball got rolling, it seemed to go fast and slow at the same time. Tommy was right there to keep us posted on what he was hearing, and what we should be doing to keep up on things. During such and important and sometimes stressful process it was great to have someone we could call and make sure we were on track. He spent countless hours with us looking at houses, talking about offers and finally signing the papers.
We\'d highly recommend him to our friends and family, and hope that you give him a chance as well!
Your're in Good Hands!
Tommy and Lisa made our first home buying experience a great one. Tommy's patience and attention to detail really put my wife and I at ease during the whole experience. Which, I might add, lasted about 5 months. We wanted our "perfect" home and we ultimately bought it. I can go on and on about how great Tommy and Lisa are to work with but I will summarize it all with the following statement...
"The reason this house is yours is because of Tommy". This was mentioned to me by the sellers agent during our final walk thru of the home before being handed the keys.
GIve them a call, you'll be glad you did.
My Husband and I decided that we wanted to relocate from the east to California.
If you have ever tried to do something like that, you know what a monumental task it is. We chose one property to look at from the Trulia site and Tommy and Lisa were the agents who showed us the house. I am so thankful to have connected with them. They listened carefully to what we were looking for and found it for us. Once we put the bid in on the house, they moved heaven and earth to make sure everything went well for us right through to the closing.
They are the best realtors ever and truly nice people as well. If you are looking to buy or sell, these are the people to deal with.

We met Tommy and Lisa at an open house that they were hosting in an area we were already interested in. They presented their knowledge of the town and surrounding areas well and were able to share that information with us in a very friendly and warm way.
We felt that they cared about the things that were important to us through the entire process.
We would highly recommend them to anyone who is unsure of the home buying process and enjoys being educated as you go the entire process.
I just closed escrow on my first home with Tommy & Lisa as my realtors and I can\'t say enough about them. As a first time home buyer, I can\'t tell you how much I appreciate the time they took to explain every aspect of the home buying process, current market trends, knowledge of the area I was looking to purchase in (South Orange County).. not to mention answering my endless questions!
Tommy listened to what I was looking for and my concerns and in the end, found me a condo that met everything that was on my \"must have\" list. They have even gone as far as to recommend vendors for the changes I want to make in my new home.
I am eternally grateful for the effort they put in and help they gave me in finding my my home! I highly recommend them to anyone purchasing or selling a home and will not hesitate to use them again!!
Thank you so much for everything you did for us in getting our place. You went above and beyond for sure to make sure we got our first home. You took us everywhere we wanted to look (even Silverado Canyon) and were always pleasant and optimistic even when we were not. Like I said, realtors should be therapists. I am so happy to have found a great realtor (and our budget will be bigger next time and it won't take as long, so hopefully more commission for you.) but more importantly, happy to have found a great friend.
Love, Cara and Wendy
As first time homeowners, we began the process of buying a home knowing next to nothing; including what to do about Real Estate Agents. We were referred to Tommy and Lisa and as soon as we reached out to them to set up a meeting, they were already exceeding our unknown expectations of what an agent should be. They took time out of their holiday schedule to meet with us and explain how the market worked. Since we were totally unaware of current market trends, this was incredibly informative and we really appreciated all we learned. Tommy and Lisa were patient with our hundreds of questions and always made sure we felt completely comfortable and understood everything.
Once we described in detail what we were looking for in a home and the hunt began we were so grateful for all the time and energy they poured into finding our dream home. Despite our many moments of weakness, frustration and the desire to just give up, they continued to remain positive, optimistic and always kept our spirits up; assuring us they would find something. Since the market was proving to be very competitive, they took time and care in preparing our information to make us stand out amongst the rest. When no home seemed to fit what we were looking for they honed in on a neighborhood and knocked on over 300 doors seeing if someone was ready to sell. They were dedicated and never made us feel as though we were as much as a nuisance as we often felt we were becoming. After months of endless emails, house tours, Starbuck\'s meetings and even marital counseling...they made good on their promise and found us our dream home!
Slowly but surely the walked us through each step of escrow making sure we felt comfortable and understood everything that was happening. They had reliable contacts to assist us in completing all necessary steps throughout the process to ensure we met each deadline. They answered all our questions, saw us through the craziness of \"the 11th hour\" and celebrated with us when they handed over the keys.
It was nothing but an absolute pleasure working with Tommy and Lisa. While we don\'t look forward to it now, we know in years to come they will be the first people we call when it is time to sell and buy again.

Tommy has been our outstanding real estate agent during our recent purchase of our home in East Costa Mesa. He listened to our needs, researched the properties which he felt, would
be of interest to us, and sent us the links thru the internet. He then, visited the properties during the week, and gave us a feedback, as we live in northern California, and our son worked during the week. He found our home which we love!
He was an excellent listener, a good negotiator, simplified our paper work by docu-
signing, was always very prompt in returning our calls, worked very closely with our
lender, the seller\'s agent, and the escrow company. The purchase of our home went
very smoothly, we became the owners of our property in approximately one month.
He again was a very good negotiator, and sold our condominium in Irvine in 8 days.
We highly recommend Tommy as a listing agent and buyer\'s agent!
Thank you Tommy!
