Testimonials From a Few of Tom's Happy Clients:
"Hey Tom, Thank you so much for all of your hard work with our house. Thanks for staying so on top of our issues and for keeping us in the loop throughout the entire process! You are the best. We will recommend you to anyone we know that is shopping for properties! Thanks again."
- Jenny and Mike, Alameda, CA
"I met Tom randomly; he responded to an inquiry I put online about the housing market. He was instantly friendly, without being overbearing, and very informative. From the first time he took me out to look at houses, I felt very comfortable and never felt rushed. He was always on time to appointments and very professional. My husband and I used him to both sell our house and buy a new one. We were concerned about selling our house in the current market, but with the professional photos Tom had taken and the advice he gave us, we had an offer from the very first person that looked at it. Tom was always very up-front with us and we never felt pressured. I was able to reach him at any time of day, any day of the week. I would highly recommend Tom to anyone that needs a Realtor."
- Amy, Todd, Jack and "Bones" Povondra, Austin, TX
"We are from New York, and are looking to retire in Austin, Texas. Although we are total strangers in Texas, we have been able to purchase two beautiful homes over the last two years through our realtor, Mr. Tom Bates, thanks to his expertise, diligence, patience, and most of all, his professional integrity. We would recommend Tom without any hesitation to any serious home buyers, wishing to relocate or seek investment opportunities in Austin."
- Joe and Beatrice, Westbury, NY

"I called Tom Bates up to be my real estate advisor based on a friend's referral. At the time I'd just moved here from New Mexico and I didn't even know how to navigate the city that well. The friendship that quickly developed with Tom made house hunting a pleasant experience. He is an excellent communicator. He always answered my emails, phone calls, and the many requests I made of him in a timely manner. When I wanted to see a home, he worked it into his schedule right away. I always felt like his helping me find a home was the most important thing on his agenda. He is clearly very knowledgeable when it comes to real estate law and all of the technicalities involved in selling and buying homes. His background as a former investment banker certainly made me feel at ease with him when he handled all of the details involved in my real estate interactions. In fact, he clearly handles all of the details involved in his business amazingly well which I found him especially reassuring during times of personal stress. I have also listed a house with Tom and I received the same wonderful treatment that I did when buying a house. He advertised our home via numerous avenues and had a buyer for it in very little time. Tom goes above and beyond to help his clients. Without a doubt, Tom Bates is the best real estate agent I have ever had and as long as I am here in Austin, he will be the only real estate agent I use."
