Tom Flanagan was my realtor for the sale of my San Marino home. He was wonderful to work with and always kind. He understood what I needed and when I needed it to happen. The marketing materials that he created were superior including his website for the house. He got me more than I expected for the sale of my home with great terms. Closing was very easy. I highly recommend him.
Tom is the best! He was incredibly committed to helping my wife and I find the perfect home for our growing family (our new baby arrived a month after we closed :). Our needs were really specific: charming house, big yard, views, old details, fruit trees, dead end street, quiet...it went on and on - Tom just smiled and then went out and helped us get this exact house! He was incredibly honest about houses he thought weren't ideal and ones he thought were the best for our situation. He looked at everything for us - even when we were out of town, or over the holidays he showed up to look at things, sent us films of properties he made and was super efficient about pushing our paperwork through - he was masterful at the process of bidding. He was always looking out for our best interests - It was like having a best friend who was an expert in real estate right along with us for the process. I can't say enough good things about Tom, his agency and his colleagues. He even found a house with a yellow door - that made my wife (from Sweden) very very happy. I would DEFINITELY recommend working with Tom!!
Tom Flanagan recently helped us sell our home and purchase a new one. Tom was the perfect choice for us! He understood our exact needs, our budget and our specific timeline. He was courteous and caring and always made us feel like we were a priority. Through it all, Tom kept us well informed and patiently answered all of our questions. He sold our home quick and efficiently and was relentless in the hunt to help us find a new one. On top of it all, Tom was able to help us stay in our former home until we could move into our new place. Tom is a hard worker and a true professional. We would definitely work with Tom again and highly recommend him.
Tom changed our lives! He not only found us the charming century-old Craftsman of our dreams, he helped us fine-tune our offer to beat out the competition. He's also a heck of a lot of fun.
Having looked for a house along the Metro Gold line neighborhoods for almost three years, been pummeled by the aggression of a seller's market, and dulled all discernment for quality from beaming beatific to diamond in the rough, I had probably transformed into what could very well be a hardened, pessimistic, nightmare client. Getting paired with Tom as my agent was a complete coincidence - and one that meant the critical difference between casting yet another leaden offer for a multiple offer listing and being the one whose offer was chosen. Our deal was tough because the sellers knew that their property was hot and that buyers like me were a dime a dozen. Tom was able to navigate the tricky waters between relentless sellers and a buyer with steadfast limits. In spite of it all, and to my great surprise, Tom was still able to strike a happy medium and guide us all seal to a mutually satisfying deal. Tom has been sensitive yet unflinching, clever and honest, analytical but humanist, market-aware while receptive to my idiosyncratic predilections. He worked very hard to help me achieve this purchase. Thanks Tom!
Without the expertise of Tom Flanagan, my family and I would not be in the situation we are currently in. We live in our dream home, dream area, and most importantly dream school district, and because of Tom and his masterful negotiation skills we are in the right property. I really appreciate the time that he took to explain all aspects of the transaction to my wife and I, we were treated with great respect, and never felt like we were in the dark. If you are looking for an honest straight shooter to help you buy or sell your property, I would highly recommend Tom
Tom is a "can-do" realtor. When our loan company dropped the ball on our loan approval, Tom kept the seller calm so that they didn't pull out of the deal. With any other agent, I'm sure things would have gone poorly, but, Tom managed the entire process with confidence and skill so that we were able to close. Tom is professional, knowledgeable and gets the job done.
Tom helped me buy my house in South Pasadena. The process involved 18 competitive bidders and he went the extra mile by taking my bid to the seller and his broker directly and refusing to leave until my contract was signed. He's very responsive and tells it to you like it is which is very refreshing to see from a real estate agent. I would whole heartedly recommend his services whether for a buyer or a seller.
Coming from another state, I was not at all familiar with the local market or the local realtors for that matter. Tom proved himself to be truthful, knowledgeable and experienced, all qualities an agent should possess. Tom's integrity not only provided me with knowledgeable information regarding the community and its history, he was also a tremendous help when it came to negotiations. In an occupation that requires constant communication, Tom continually kept me informed and made himself available at all times. I truly felt Tom understood my needs and he definitely made the whole process much easier.
Thank you Tom! It was a pleasure working with you. I really appreciate all your help in finding this place and getting it before any other offers came through. I absolutely love my home!
In a matter of weeks, Tom helped us find a home in a very sought-after area of La Crescenta. After 2 very long years of searching on Redfin, Trulia and Zillow, Tom helped us navigate a very competitive seller's market, and helped us realize the value of working with a well-connected and trustworthy real estate agent. Tom is attuned to the market, but more importantly he's a great listener. He heard our wants, figured out our needs and found a great option for us -- all in a non-pushy, dependable, and affable manner that makes working with him totally great.
Met Mr. Flanagan through a referral and I was immediately put at ease after speaking with him. My wife and I were looking for a condo in Tarzana and we were able to lock down the first one we liked with Tom's help. He is friendly, professional and worked tirelessly through our loan approval process. I highly recommend Tom for his expertise and negotiating skills but it's his passion for life I truly admire.
Tom did an outstanding job for us in finding what we were looking for in Pasadena. My wife and I are discriminating buyers so we were excited to find something at our price point that also had the architectural integrity we were seeking. Tom made the process as painless as possible for us and I would highly recommend Tom, he is a real professional!!
