Tom was my realtor when I bought this home and again when I sold it. He helped enormously to get the property in tip top shape to allow the most the market would allow. He gave excellent advice on repairs or possible upgrades that were needed which would guarantee a fast sell....and it did! I would recommend Tom Smith to anyone that is looking to buy or sell, you will not go wrong!

Tom did a 5 star job. Our house was built in 2006 and has really had no updates, and it's been a rental to 5 couples over the last 12 years. Tom got us everything we wanted in house value and did it professionally. We didn't exactly make it easy on Tom, given the rough shape of the house, no property manager and us living in Minnesota. He replaced lightbulbs, got estimates on carpet/paint and scheduled and reviewed the work done by the workers. He set up the sprinklers to be turned on and inspected, he got someone to fix the front door, personally cleaned up surfaces before inspection, replaced carbon monoxide detectors, replaced well over a dozen light bulbs, and found and installed gutter extensions. I'm sure I left out some details, but you get the point. He went above and beyond the normal realtor function and saved me time and headache of trying to figure this out on my own living two states away. I'd recommend Tom to anyone selling or buying a home in this area.

We worked with Tom on buying our first home. Tom went above and beyond to walk us through the process and ensure we were comfortable during every step. He helped us find a great home, at an affordable price, with all of our ‘must haves.’ Tom’s communication was always timely and effective. He understands the market and was able to negotiate us a great deal. As a first-time buyer, Tom went above and beyond to calm our fears and provide guidance with the biggest financial decision we’ve ever made. An investment that big can be overwhelming but not with Tom. We felt lucky having such a knowledgeable agent working with us as we made this huge decision.

Tom was very professional and honest about each property we looked at! He does not sugar coat issues that he sees in a property, which is very helpful, especially since we did not know anything about buying a home. He was very patient with us as we were looking for a property. When the house we bought popped up on our app, he immediately got us a showing and helped us put together an offer that same day. A wonderful experience!

Tom couldn't have made buying a home an easier experience. My fiance and I requested to start looking at homes in a certain area and he was able to find us a handful of houses that met our criteria and within our price range in a short amount of time. Within a week we found a house we wanted to put an offer on. He worked odd hours (due to time zone differences with the current owners) to make sure that our offer / counter offers were communicated in a timely manner to get the deal done quick! He always had our needs in mind when adding inclusions into the offers and sat down with us with every counteroffer to walk us through what would and wouldn't be included (definitely helpful since we were both first time homebuyers!). We were able to walk away with the house of our dreams for us and our kids in a short amount of time and completely stress and hassle free! Thanks Tom!! I dont think I would of found another relator with the professionalism and personality to make you feel like you are his most important customer.

Tom is an absolute professional that you can fully trust to sell your home or find your home. His communication is always timely, he understands the market and what it takes to sell your home. Additionally, he goes the extra distance to make the selling an easier experience for your family and that can make all the difference in the world during a stressful situation. Tom has found us a home and sold two of our homes. The total sales periods combined were less than a week total! He is like family and we'll always look forward to working with him for our real estate needs.

    Tom Smith was an absolute pleasure to work with. Tom is very knowledgeable of the Omaha area and is very organized. My wife and I had relocated from another state and Tom was able to give use a tour of the city and the surrounding areas. He was able to schedule us a showing for every house we had like and he even scheduled showings for homes we had never considered. Again, Tom was great to work with and very good at what he does! We would recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a home in the Omaha area! Alec Wisecup
    Tom was great to work with! He set up everything virtually since we weren't able to see the house in person and was very knowledgeable about prices for the area and negotiations. We would highly recommend him! ANASTASIA SCHMIDT
    I highly recommend Tom Smith as a realtor. My wife and I were looking for a house. Tom would listened to what we wanted in a house. He would find a house and listen our likes and dislikes and use that to find another. He would set up visit after visit. When we found the house we wanted he helped set us up with a loan officer to purchase the home. He also provide a moving company that did a super job. He also help sell our previous home and set up showings. Our house was sold for a good price which enabled us to use the equity on our new house. Again we are realty satisfied with Tom Smith as a realto DudleyBaack
    Tom has been more than just our Realtor. He has overseen our relocation from Chicago to Omaha finding us a Rental Property at first and then finally our home a year later. He has gone above and beyond what a Realtor should be. He has held our hands through our new endeavors in Omaha (housing market) and guided us through what is recommended or not. His expertise in the market, experience and knowledge makes him an ideal Realtor for any new buyers or anyone needing to purchase or sell a property. I'm very pleased with his professionalism and vast knowledge in his field. My family and I consider ourselves lucky to have found him. To this day almost two years later he calls every now and then to check up on us and see if we are content and anything else that we may need. On a five-star scale I would give him 10 stars.

    Very good experience. House sold quickly. Having an experienced realtor is essential. Tom ensured that as a first time seller, I was informed of the entire process, and how to get my house ready to sell. M Cook

    He walked me through all the complications of home sales. The home sold within three weeks. He followed up to provide necessary documentation for tax purposes. I do not like selling real estate and he was patient while I worked through the process. K Hensing
    I was a first time home buyer and had little knowledge regarding real estate. Tom was very helpful in making sure that I understood everything and that he was getting me into a house that was perfect for my family. He did a great job negotiating a deal on the home that I purchased and made sure everything that needed to be repaired was taken care of. Since I bought my house a little over a year ago he has continuously checked in to make sure everything is going okay with the house Jarrod D.
    Tom helped sale my house in a down market. Even before I listed he came over and helped with ways to make house sell ready. Awesome listing including video tour. House sold for a price I was happy with. Tom was also very helpful at closing. I highly recommend Tom and when I’m ready to sell I’ll be calling him!! Joe M.
    We relocated from Texas to Omaha for a position with a local employer. My employer had Tom give myself a tour of the area during the recruiting trip. Tom also went above and beyond by taking my wife and mother in law on a separate tour. Tom did an excellent job representing Omaha and the surrounding areas. His knowledge and advice was very valuable in making our decision to come to Omaha. We had several false starts while house hunting and Tom expertly navigated us through the process. When we did find a home, Tom was with us every step of the way through closing. He also provided excellent advice after closing on local providers for services we needed. I would recommend using Tom and will be using him again in the future when I need a realtor Michael Ondrovich
    Tom was very responsive to our needs in purchasing a home in the area in which we wanted to live. He helped us sell our existing home, too. He is very knowledgeable about the market and the trends in the area. Cheryl M.

    Tom is an energentic and commited agent who will listen to you, work to meet your needs and follow-up on the little things that make a big difference. Recommend him with no reservations. Michael Geary
    I highly recommend Tom Smith. As a semi-retired mortgage loan officer of 30 some years, I have worked with Tom on many of his transactions and found him to be extremely professional and a Realtor that works diligently for his clients' best interests. Chuck Holsapple
    As retirees, we decided to downsize. Tom helped us stage our home, set a fair price and sold it much quicker than we anticipated. His experience showed in every aspect of our transition. He kept us on track and belayed our anxiety due to one home sold and the new home yet to be found. He negotiated hard on our choice for the new home and easily kept several balls in the air through the tightly timed closing process on both homes. Tom is truly hard working, experienced and loyal to his customers and we heartily recommend his services. Tom and Linda Stewar
    Tom was very responsive and helpful while helping us search for our first home. Whenever we wanted to view a listing he set it up right away. When we found the right place he walked us through the process and got us a great deal. D Seeley
    We greatly appreciate that amazing level of support you provided. Thank you for making it so easy and spending so much time with us. We love our new home! Without your help our first home wouldn't have been possible! Tyson S.
    "Tom Smith served as our realtor for both selling and purchasing a new home in 2014. The recommendations that Tom put forth with respect to preparing our home for sale and establishing a selling price garnered us an additional Twenty Five Thousand Dollars on the actual selling price as compared to the suggested starting price and recommended upgrades set forth by another realtor at the same company! In purchasing our new home Tom, coordinated with the builder to execute finishing the walkout basement to our customized specifications, Tom’s professionalism, attention to detail and responsiveness was evident throughout the entire home buying process. Tom’s realtor skills come with our highest recommendations." Stacy & Brad H.
    Kat and I really appreciate everything you have done to help us chose such a wonderful house. We love our house and this has made our transition from Colorado to Nebraska a whole lot easier. We cannot say enough good things about our experience in working with you. You definitely went above and beyond our expectations. Tom Smith has far exceeded our expectations for a Real estate agent. Not only did he listen to our wants and needs but he took the initiative to make suggestions on what we should look for in a home that would add value. Tom didn’t pressure us into the high end of our budget, as a matter of fact, he found the house we were looking for at a price that was under budget! He was very knowledgeable on not only locations best suited for our family but also on the local construction industry. He kept in touch with us throughout the whole ordeal and was very candid and honest. He gave us pointers on how to acclimate not only to Omaha but also our children to the schools. Even after our close date, he called a week later to make sure we got settled in okay. Tom didn’t just find and sell us a house; he became a friend of the family. Patrick C Patrick & Kat C.
    I relocated for a job opportunity in Omaha in 2009. Tom Smith came highly recommended as my agent and he lived up to the recommendation. He took the time to understand my family's needs, what type of home, area and living environment that would make the family happy. He also took the time to familiarize us with Omaha, recreational areas (that applied to our interests) and helped us to get to know how to get around the city. Beyond all this Tom went above and beyond when it came to inspections and closing. As a matter of fact when we went to close on our now home, due to a misunderstanding in the closing paperwork we almost did not close that day and would have had to reset a time for both us and the sellers. Tom took the bull by the horns and we drove 2 hours to St. Joseph to meet my wife who drove up from Kansas City, found a notary public and closed on our house deal.. You can't ask for more.. R.

    Tom was great to work with when my family and I were purchasing a new house as part of relocating to Omaha. He accommodated our schedule when we were flying in repeatedly to see houses over a period of a couple of months. Was always a strong advocate looking out for us and pointing out things that we might have missed. A keen eye, a great talent for discerning what the right house is, very easygoing and helpful with things beyond just the real estate (for example, he suggested multiple places to take my 8 year old son that were great). I can highly recommend Tom and will use him in the future if I have need of any real estate services. Hope that works for you. Please feel free to edit grammar as needed. Thanks Ryan Ryan
