I highly recommend the Tom and Joanne team of residential realtors to represent you if you are considering listing your home for sale.  I was very satisfied with their services in selling my home at 715 Boston Post Road in Weston earlier this year.


I contacted them in mid-April 2010 at the recommendation of a friend who had also used their services. I first met with Tom to discuss my interest in a quick, clean sale of my property which I had owned for nearly 30 years.  I later met with Joanne and completed the necessary paperwork for listing the property.  Though I certainly loved my home, I knew that it had some draw backs (on a busy road and an unusual floor plan) that might make it more difficult to sell.


Together, we worked out a strategy to price the house aggressively and merchandise it creatively.  Tom recommended Saturday and Sunday open houses on the weekend it was first listed - with any and all bids to be held for presentation to me at 6:00 pm the following Monday evening. 


They created very attractive marketing materials on the web and in their handouts and worked hard to create a lot of excitement around the early showings.   Within just 7 days of activating the listing, they presented me with 5 offers, 3 of which were above the full asking price.   Given such an attractive set of buyers, I was able to select the best all around offer and close on the house within the next 30 days.


It is important to note that I was traveling on business almost non-stop during the listing, negotiating, and closing activities.  Tom and Joanne managed everything very smoothly – from faxing and emailing necessary documents, scheduling conference calls, overseeing inspections, and getting documents to my attorney while I was away.


Throughout the process, they were very professional and often went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that everything went smoothly and came to a successful conclusion right on schedule.


I recommend them to you and hope that your selling experience will be as successful.
