"Would I recommend him? Absolutely!"
"I spent months and month researching loans and the loan process before we started our home search, I didn't know where to start when it came to realtors. So we went with a referral from some friends, enter local realtor Tom Schieber. We worked with Tom for 2 months between 2 properties. We were extremely uncomfortable jumping into such a hot real estate market wanting to buy our first home. When we first contacted Tom he was on his way out of town to his daughter's wedding. As a testament to his dedication he took time out to talk to us during some hectic travel situation and we made arrangements to meet up when he got back to town. Upon first meeting with him, he showed us some houses and listened to what we liked and disliked. He also asked probing questions to get more clarity of our current situation and long term goals. Within the next few days he found us a house that filled most of our check list and he wrote up the offer. We were pre-approved through an online lender but decided to ask him for local recommendations as we didn't feel confident dealing with an online lender for our first purchase. Looking back I'm glad we did go with a local lender because when the deal started going south communication and team work between Tom and the lender kept the deal alive. Unfortunately that deal fell through but at no fault of theirs. We immediately started the house hunt and came across the house we eventually closed on. Tom works with a network of industry professionals, so if he doesn't know about a certain subject, he "knows a guy" that does. Being a first time home buyer it's important to trust your agent and not one time did we feel any reason to not trust him. During the negotiation process he was realistic with expectations and never over promised or under performed. Working with the lender we closed a week early. Would I recommend him? Absolutely!"

"Tom is an amazing realtor and all around great guy!"
"Tom is an amazing realtor and all around great guy! He put in a tremendous amount of effort with us, walking us through every part of the process and making sure we were informed as first time homebuyers. In this tough market he was able to get us a great house for a great deal! Even now as we're about to move into our new home he's going above and beyond - fixing minor leaks and providing repair contacts. We found him on Yelp and I would highly recommend him to anyone in the area!"

"Tom's assistance was invaluable in helping us locate the right home in the best neighborhood at the right price."
"Tom has my highest recommendation! Although I am a licensed real estate broker, I chose to use a local expert when moving to a new area. Tom has all the attributes I look for: Extensive knowledge of the area, Knowledge of the listing inventory, Attention to detail, Calm professional demeanor, Great reputation with other agents, Excellent negotiating skills, Responsiveness and Patience.
Tom's assistance was invaluable in helping us locate the right home in the best neighborhood at the right price. When our loan got delayed, Tom worked with the listing agent to avoid a costly and stressful disaster."

"He is highly recommended ..."
"We used Tom for the sale of our home and purchase of our new home. We had somewhat of a tricky/complicated transaction with very tight timelines and Tom was able to guide us through the process keeping us well informed and on track the entire time. Tom's attention to detail, knowledge of all facets of the industry, patience and his overall customer service is second to none. He is highly recommended and we'll definitely be using him for any future real estate needs.

"Can't recommend him enough."
"Had a fantastic experience with Tom. He helped my wife and I sell our house in Pittsburg. I can be tough to deal with and Tom worked with me. Tom was a great fit for how we wanted to handle selling our house regarding the specifics of our situation and what we were looking for in a sale.
He was great with offering advice on pre-sale work, didn't balk when I told him I was shopping around for a realtor at our initial meeting, and listened to our situation and got us a deal that worked for us and not just pushing us towards accepting the first deal that came up. I know not all realtors have your back and are only looking for a quick commission, did not get this impression from Tom ever.
Can't recommend him enough. While I hope I don't need a realtor again for a very long time I know who I'll call."

"Tom stayed on top of all the important details and kept us on track."
"You know those times when you find someone on Yelp, and not only do they live up to their other 5-star reviews but they do such a great job that they become a good friend in the process? That's Tom!
From the initial intro through the house hunt and all the way through escrow to the close, Tom stayed on top of all the important details and kept us on track. We even were able to close a couple days early.
I also credit his recommendations during the negotiation of the offer to get us to the right price, and he worked some magic to get the sellers to send us a counter offer before an open house that was scheduled for that weekend, clinching the deal before a bidding war could start.
A million thanks Tom and we look forward to having you as one of our new Brentwood neighbors :)"

"He is professional, quick and friendly."
"We have used Tom's services for three transactions now, and he has always looked out for our best interests. He is professional, quick and friendly. We bought our first home with him, and he walked us through the process smoothly. When we needed a bigger space he helped us sell our home in less than two weeks and was able to get us the new home we wanted even though we had not yet entered into contract on the home we were selling. He has always had good advice when it came to what we should look for in a new place, he has excellent recommendations when it comes to repairmen, painters or anything else related to your purchase or sale of a home. And he is just an all around wonderful person."
