Thomas is a great realtor. He helped negotiate a tough loan and get it through. He worked hard with the lender to close as quickly as possible. He knows what to look for in a house to fit the buyer.

Being somewhat new to the area, Thomas helped us out immensely and was honest and forthcoming in his assessments and opinions of the houses that we were looking at. He was absolutely personable and fully available to us at all hours. We felt bad emailing him at 10PM which was when our schedules allowed for it, but we were surprised and grateful that he was responsive and professional at any hour. The house we were interested in had multiple offers and while we were satisfied with his recommendations on our offer, the seller's agent also commented on how clean it was and ultimately I think we have Thomas to thank for the fact that we got our dream home. We've been through this process once before and didn't have great expectations at first, but Thomas showed us that the home buying process can be fun and less stressful and we are forever in his debt for his assistance and knowledge during this process. His follow through is amazing and we know that he really cared about us and wanted to see us get exactly what we were looking for. He even recommended a few great restaurants when we asked about places where we could celebrate our purchase. Hands down, Thomas is amazing and I would highly highly recommend him to any home buyers out there who are looking for an honest and fun experience. Thanks Thomas for everything you've done for us, we are so happy with our new home!

Thomas was great. His negotiating skills helped us immensely to close on the perfect house. He was extremely accommodating and helpful. In this market you have to move fast to get the property you want and he was on top of it from the very beginning. The entire process went off without a hitch. I would definitely use Thomas in the future and highly recommend him to others.

Thomas is very knowledgeable! This was our first time buying a house. We were very picky with what we wanted and he was very patient. He showed us homes all over the metroplex with sometimes only hours notice! Never complained once, always had a great attitude, and is great with communication. Already sent my mother-in-law to him to find something for her! Would definately recommend him to friends and would use him in the future!

If I could give Thomas more than 5 stars I definitely would. He was attentive and professional from start to finish. This has by far been my best experience with a real estate agent. Thomas was very knowledgeable of the Dallas/Fort Worth area which helped make the process much easier when selecting a location. I will recommend Thomas to my friends and family and I will also use him again in the future.

I went on Zip realty 3 years ago and it connected me with Thomas, every time I searched for homes his name and face popped up. I also would get little messages from Thomas asking my plans for my home purchase. I know they were personal because when I responded he would respond right back. When we were ready the first person I contacted was Thomas. It's like he dropped every thing for us. He had every referral we needed. He also had all the answers. I would completely refer Thomas lol even if they are crazy like me. Lol remember alligators in north Texas comment Thomas?????

Thomas, was very professional,knowledgeable, and dedicated to all clients. I was able to learn about short sales,foreclosed properties, hude homes and FHA. The man went out of his way to find the best property, deal and made a long stressful situation a bree's. I believe Thomas is the best realtor in the country, I really believe that. I reach Thomas through all phone calls even in the middle of the night about questions or properties I found. I will recommend Thomas to any one I run across, he even found me a lender. The world need a few more good human being like Thomas.

Thomas is one of the greatest people we know. He was professional, friendly, and consistent while helping us find our dream home. We initially wanted to buy a home that was pre-built but ended up contacting a builder. Thomas was there with us every step of the way; from the moment the builder began working on the home until the moment the keys were about to be placed in our hands. He even went to the construction site on his own time and took pictures of the progress, and immediately sent them to us. There are not enough hours in a day to explain how great of a realtor he is. We are truly blessed to know a man such as Thomas, he made the entire experience stress-free and we will never forget him.

Thomas was great. He was willing to work with me even when we weren't sure I'd be able to get funding. He took me out to see several houses, and when we found the right one, he worked with me, the seller, and the lending agency to make it happen. I would and have recommended him to my friends and anyone that I hear of buying a house. I plan on going into investment real estate within the next couple of years, and he will be the one I call. He's also recommended a variety of contractors, which have all been great, and I was impressed with how closely he keeps up with his recommendations and their level of service. I know he'd do his best to send me to someone reliable, trustworthy, and capable of getting the job done. Thanks Thomas!

As first time home buyers, my husband and I weren't sure where to set our expectations for a realtor, but Thomas truly went above and beyond to make sure he answered all of our 1000 questions and was available whenever we needed him. He always made us feel like we were his only clients and truly listened to our likes and dislikes. He is one of the most professional people my husband and I have ever dealt with, and our entire home buying process was as smooth and stress-free as possible! We now have the perfect home we have been looking for and we look forward to having Thomas on our side again at some point in the future!

Thomas was absolutely wonderful!!!! He was very kind and patient with me. As a first time home buyer I had many questions and many concerns. He answered my questions and when he did not know he was able to either get the information and call me later or refer me to a resource. He was always early for showings and always returned calls and e-mails promptly. Also, after I closed on my house, he took time out of his schedule and brought my house keys to me after obtaining them from the seller. I thought that was very kind and considerate. I highly recommend him to anyone. He is a fantastic agent.
