Hey there Thom,
Thanks for the update that the sale has closed.  I'm glad this is finally behind us and thank YOU for all of your efforts because I know it never would've happened without your help and persistence.  Now we need to have a cocktail and celebrate!!!
-Steve, Long Beach

Thank you in Aliso Viejo

Dear Thom,  Thank you so much for selling our condo! We feel very fortunate that you were recommended to us because we feel you helped us in a way no other agent could.  We really appreciated your calm professionalism, your attention to detail and your personableness.  Your experience really shined and we felt relieved that we were in your care.  Thanks again and please give us many cards so we can recommend you to our friends.  Take Care.  Your Friends,
-The Kendalls, Aliso Viejo

Difficult process - made simple by Thom

Thom,  Thank you for making such a difficult process (Short Sale) a very dignified one.  I really appreciate your ability to make me feel like everything is great!   When we first met, I didn't want to get out of bed.  Now, we've completed a successful sale and I got to move forward in a more positive direction with my life. I could never have done this without you!  I have already given your card to many friends and family.
-Cathy, Tustin, CA

We're the lucky ones !

You had a great recommendation from the buyer's agent on the sale of our house. He spoke so highly of you and said you were very professional, clear and upfront. I must admit I am not surprised, you have done such a great job and you will have our business for life (hopefully we will buy another home in a few years)...more importantly, you have my referrals. I have alot of friends in the business who are agents who wanted the business even as a short sale, but we choose to go outside that circle (I don't like doing business with friends, it usually doesn't end well) and hopefully find someone whom we can trust. We were lucky to have chosen you.
-Mike - Aliso Viejo, CA

Hope we get a chance to work together again -

I hope we get the opportunity to work together on another transaction in the future.
It's definitely time to celebrate, and it's FRIDAY!!  Congratulations!
-Tim, Seller & Agent, Long Beach

This deal would not have happened without you

I wanted to thank you again for all your support and hard work to help the Beach Street deal go through.  I definitely appreciated working with you and don’t believe this could have worked without your diligence, patience, support, and efforts!  I am very thankful we got to work together!
- Jeff, Buyer & Agent, Cerritos

California to Texas - Thank you so much !

Hello Thom,
We were delighted today when the doorbell rang and the [Edible Arrangements] fruit piece arrived!  Thanks so much, it is delicious and we are enjoying it. I can't believe how big the house is,,,,,,,neither can the neighbors as they stop by, as most of them have never seen the inside of it!  You found us our dream home!

Short Sale - and YOU got it done !

Hi Thom, 
I sent out an email to everyone I know explaining my journey and how, in the end, you pulled it off.  It took a total of 21 months from the start, dropping the price over 50% from the high of $420,000 with the prior 3 agents, but only you got it done.  I also told everyone that I actually spoke to about 30 agents over the years, that assured me the market was fine and that I didn't want to sell because the value won't fall !  I explained that I was unemployed and needed to sell but they acted like that's ok - "you will be fine".    You were one of the few that actually listened and understood my situation.  I included your email and phone number to everyone so hopefully you will be even busier.  Thanks again,
-Brad, Orange County, CA

My life is so much better now !

Thom, my life has changed so much for the positive since you helped me List and Sell the condo.  I was struggling until you were referred to me and we met.  When we first talked I knew you would help me change my life for the better.  The process was relatively painless and very successful.  Thank you so much for giving me back my life !

We will without hesitation recommend you to any of our friends and family....

Dear Thom,

Our last boxes are unpacked and now we’re finally starting to feel at home in our new place. We’re so glad that the move is behind us and that we can now simply move forward. To tell you that we are appreciative for your help and support during the entirety of the short-sale process would be an understatement! We realize that the success of our short sale was due to both your professionalism and diligence, and for that we are truly grateful. You made what could have been an unpleasant process relatively painless. Knowing very little about what exactly was involved in a short sale, we were a bit anxious and stressed in the beginning. But the truth is that you completely put us at ease and we knew that we were in the best possible hands. Thank you for walking us through the process during these past months – explaining things, helping us with paperwork, answering our many questions. We will without hesitation recommend you to any of our friends and family who may be contemplating a short sale themselves. Your complete competence, professionalism, and sincerity were always evident and every day appreciated.  Thank you so very much for everything.

-Corie & Elizabeth,   Aliso Viejo, CA

Sold in Lake Forest and bought in Rancho Santa Margarita!

August 2013:
Thom and Brett sold my house in Lake Forest for top dollar in 30 days and helped me find and close on another house in Rancho Santa Margarita within just 5 days!  I could never have done it without Brett and Thom.  They worked hard and spent countless hours like detectives to find the right property so I could buy and close in a very short timeframe.  They are the best !
