What My Clients Are Saying

“Tom was so wildly successful at selling our first home that he was our only call when it came time to sell our second home. We sold, purchased, and later sold again with him (when moving out of state) and could not recommend him more. Here’s why I highly recommend him:- He’s a talented communicator and negotiator. He built relationships, was firm when we needed him to be firm, and also negotiated very favorable terms on our behalf in all three transactions. - He is both realistic and optimistic. As a result of that, we were able to sell our first home for much more than other Realtors we interviewed thought we could. He had solid reasoning though, he wasn’t just making airy promises - and he delivered. That sale price changed the kind of house we were able to buy next, which was fantastic. With our second home he was also very smart about pricing, and his strategy worked. - He’s also savvy about every angle of the transaction. Purchase price isn’t the only thing that matters, and every transaction is unique, and he knew how to arrange terms to get the best possible deal. - He was extremely pleasant to work with, responded quickly to texts or calls, and went the extra mile for us on multiple occasions, even bailing us out of a few weird timing jams we were in. Moving is a stressful time and yet he took so much stress out of the whole experience. - He knows how to assemble a team. His photographers and marketers are great, and his network of other pros to recommend (inspectors, lenders, etc) saved us so much work. We bought our first house before we met him and had to pick some of our own companies, and I saw how much better things flowed when you have the recommendations of someone with a strong network. The whole process was very smooth. - He knew when to give suggestions, and also when to listen or give us space. This is a rare balance that is hard to strike. If you need someone with good intuition, he’s the guy. We came across Tom through a friend’s recommendation, and are SO glad we did. I know it’s hard to pick someone to entrust with such a big decision and process - and I would recommend him without reservation!”

“As first time home buyers, we really relied on Tom’s expertise throughout this process. He and his team were incredible. They were patient, responsive, and walked us through the entire process, answering all of our questions. He advocated for us at each step of the home buying process and was honest with us while supporting our choices. When we buy and/or sell in the future, we will definitely be working with Tom again. You will not regret reaching out to Tom, we cannot recommend him enough!”

Kerissa Hobstetter

“Tom was amazing. He helped us find our new home here in Maryland. We saw a condo that we liked on Zillow and he set up a walkthrough with us. He also set up some other viewings for the same day. Tom helped us through the whole process for us and made it as simple and streamlined as it could be. He is very familiar with the area and gave us a lot of great info; it was very helpful since we were moving from out of state. Tom was great!!”

Sheila Anderson

“Tom helped us for over 6 months to find our new home. He was patient and responsive on all of our requests to see homes and write multiple offers. Once we were under contract Tom and his team of preferred providers made our closing quick and easy. Tom was great to work with.”

Amanda Lukowski

“We've owned 8 homes and until we met Tom, we always used a different agent. Most agents don't have the integrity or personality that made us want to use the same agent twice. Tom's knowledgeable and laid back approach is what we really appreciate. He always goes the extra mile to make sure we love and understand both the process of buying or selling and knowing the ins and outs of a property. You never feel like just another commission with Tom and his team. I don't plan to move anytime soon, but when we do, he'll have our business.”

“The Oliver Group has helped us buy and sell threes houses. We could not be more satisfied with their customer service, knowledge, and tough negotiating skills. We always felt like they had our best interest at heart. They never pressured us into a decision, and they were very patient with us throughout the buying/selling process. We have recommended the Oliver Group to multiple friends and family members.”

Christine Jones

“Tommy was amazing at helping us get our dream home and sell our previous house. He was in constant communication with us every step along the way. A true professional.”

“Tom was amazing! He was super helpful and patient. His goal was to make sure we got the right home for our family. He was attentive to all of our questions and made sure we had the answers we needed.”

Michael Mark

“Tom was my agent as I looked for homes in Baltimore. I come from New York and did not know the differences in the two states' real estate markets but Tom taught me well. He does not do the hard sell. He is very responsive to and respectful of the buyer's needs and methods of coming to a decision. His level of expertise in the ins and outs of going into contract and closing is excellent. He has a nose for understanding what wiggle room there might be in a offering and for bringing home the deal. If he has a fault (in my view) it is that sometimes he can be quiet when you want him to speak up, but he is always there for you and definitely on your side, even if his commission might be less, because he wants the buyer to be happy w the deal and not regret it. I highly recommend him to others and would use him again myself.”

“Ashley and Tom's expertise and service are outstanding. I was a long distance seller; the listing, sale and closing process was extremely smooth. My family's home was older, and in need of updates. The strategies they suggested maximized the value received and we did not have to endure repair issues. They made sure I understood all of the costs and benefits involved in the sale and listing process. Because of their diligence and thoroughness, there were no surprises throughout and no last minute issues that impacted the sale or closing process. I am blessed to have met and worked with them.”
