Tommy will walk you through the process professionally at your own pace and will take the time to answer all of your questions thoroughly. Oh, and he actually answers his phone...Not enough of that out there these days.
I NEVER write reviews so the fact that I am spending time to do this means that Tommy is a true standout. Given that this was our first time buying a home, we had a TON of questions and Tommy was always VERY generous with his time. At the start of our journey, we were flexible (arguably too flexible) in where we were looking to live, North Bay, Easy Bay, South Bay and the City. No matter where the house was that we wanted to see, Tommy was always willing to schedule tours for us. Given the competitive market in the Bay Area, Tommy was always accommodating to jump on tours, disclosures, etc. in a very timely manor. If you don't already know, buying a home in the Bay Area is nuts - it feels like everyone is willing to throw nonsensical amounts of money at homes and waive all softs of disclosures. Tommy always made us feel comfortable and never pressured us into a decision we weren't comfortable with which is truly important. I highly recommend Tommy!
We were so grateful to have Tommy in our corner to help us navigate the quickly shifting waters that is the housing market today! He was knowledgeable about every aspect of the home-buying process (as a first time home buyer this knowledge was invaluable), and was always available to answer any questions that we could throw at him. Tommy's knowledge, coupled with his desire to see us get into the home that was right for us, made for a very comfortable and fun experience. We saw over 30 homes and never once felt pressured to buy, in fact, we were advised in more than one case that a better option may be right around the corner. He was right! As I sit, moved in to our brand new home at the start of a new chapter in life, I cannot recommend Tommy highly enough. His attention to detail and his large network of licensed professionals made for a streamlined process from walkthrough to close!
! He listened carefully to our needs and wants and then showed us several options. He was there every step of the way during the purchase to make sure all the paperwork and details were correct and complete. He followed all the COVID safety precautions and even did some virtual tours during our search. He was amazing!! We couldn't be happier in our new home and are very grateful for his expertise and compassionate support!!
From our intro call to close he was always responsive, on top of it, patient, and willing to hustle to get the deal done. As a 5th Generation Petaluma Native Tommy was knowledgable of the different neighborhoods, schools, and town in general. After quickly realizing how hot the market was, we went from looking at open houses to offer in 3 weeks and there wasn't one time where he wasn't moving fast enough. Throughout escrow Tommy continued to be responsive and got these first time home buyers into the house of their dreams.
He was super helpful and patient during our buying process. We were picky about what we were looking for, but he knew that we'd find the right house just for us! And we sure did! It was tough to be a buyer during the pandemic with the supply low and it being such a seller's market. He didn't rush us and was available to schedule showings as needed. He was great at answering all our questions throughout and guided us through what to take into consideration as we were making offers. He really made our dream a reality. I highly recommend Tommy! He knows the area and knows how to get you what you're looking for!
Tommy made the most challenging aspects seem simple and doable. Buying and selling in the midst of a pandemic has its challenges. Add to that the complications of refurbishing an older home while working with a limited budget for the purchase of a new home and it was a job for super-talented, hard-working agent. Tommy Dolcini saved the day. Tommy knew exactly what needed to be done to bring my house to market, from top to bottom, inside and out. He made great recommendations as to what buyers are looking for in today's market for older homes. We took his advice because it was honest and reasonable. Tommy also pitched in with hands-on effort when needed, personally managing many of the details. Compass Real Estate Agents worked with us to expedite the financing of the renovation of the house. The end result was that the house sold for the best price possible in a matter of days. The escrow and closing were super-smooth. If you want an agent that will go the extra mile, you want to work with Tommy Dolcini.
This guy is hands down one of the best LOCAL real estate agents you can be working with. Never puts any pressure, completely transparent and always there to answer any questions. I highly recommend his services.
