  • Making a Difference Where You Live! For Tom, this is more than just a catchy slogan. Before he sold his first house in 1995, he committed that his ministry of fifteen years wouldn't end...but just take a different direction. Tom's mission, best caught by this catchy little phrase, is two-fold: (1) on the tangible, this-world level, it is truly to help our clients buy or sell a home....right where they live...and experience a genuine difference in the level of integrity, service and professionalism they have in working with us. (2) On the less tangible, but arguably even more important level of relationships and leaving a legacy of commitment and support for the best things in life, Tom and Judy also support the schools, missions, churches, seminaries and other special projects in and around the communities where our clients live and work...hoping to make a difference in that way as well.

  • A Trainer of Agents and Negotiation Specialist. Having managed over 50 agents during Tom's tenure as manager of the Northwest Branch Office where he now continues as top salesman, Tom trained agents in negotiation, presentation, marketing and meeting the expectation for excellence in service. This also means Tom knows how "the other side" is thinking and has been trained, giving our clients a step up on the negotiation process.
  • Leading in Sales. Tom consistently ranks among the top 3 for Listings sold each year in his company, above nearly 1000 other agents, and has been the #1 Buyer Agent two out of the past three years in the company. City-wide, Tom ranks in the top 50 out of 3500 agents, and for his sellers averages 2% higher than the average sale price to list price ratio and sells in half the time of the average sale in the city....a win-win for our clients. For our buyers, Tom is a master negotiator for key points of value such as the best occupancy, favorable concessions for closing costs paid and personal property being left, and of course the lowest possible price.
  • City-wide Expertise. Tom has intentionally kept his business focus and experience deep and wide. Deep, in terms of knowledge of individual communities and trends across the various neighborhoods and school systems in the area, and wide in terms of experienced coverage of all the neighborhoods in Hamilton, Butler, Warren and most of Clermont Counties. Drawing on the resources of the best internet research, the strengths of a solid all-city Company like Coldwell Banker West Shell and his personal experience in living, recreating and being involved in so many communities, both on the east and west sides, Tom brings a wealth of rich community awareness to his buyers and sellers.
  • Pricing and Determining Value. Perhaps the single most important selling or buying factor comes down to dollars. How much is it worth? How much should I pay? What's the real market value? Tom has maintained careful records about seasonal trends, has access to many databases from which to draw value factors and successfully uses these tools to advise his clients and allow his sellers to get the best possible price for their homes...and to protect the investment his buyers are making in what is for most of our clients the biggest investment of their lives.
