In a recent purchase, Tom Redmond showed exceptional skill in guiding and protecting our interests and needs through a complex sales situation including finding and directing a major mortgage broker to understand the security of our purchase.
As a small business owner in San Francisco, I have learned to watch my pennies. I bought my first business here at the age of 23 without the help of a realtor, scared that I was going to get taken advantage of. Instead, I spent sleepless nights stressing over documents that I had signed and second guessing myself because of my inexperience – and ended up losing money in the end. When it came time to expand, I was debilitated with the fear of going through all that again. A friend suggested I talk with the realtor that she’d just used to close her latest deal. “A straight up guy,” she said. So, that’s how I met Tom and Bill of Redmond Realty. As a bartender for 15 years, I’ve learned to size people up pretty quickly in terms of moral character, and I knew right away that these guys were solid. They worked hard to make my deal go through, never pressured me to do anything I didn’t feel comfortable with, and never promised me anything they couldn’t deliver. I’ve recommended them to everyone I know and will use them for every deal I make from here on out.
Tom Redmond saved the day on what had appeared to be the end of the line in acquiring a distressed property. Having negotiated with the owner for six months I threw in the towel and turned the deal over to Tom. He promptly went to the seller, and with the slightest change of terms got the property for me. Most appreciative of the smooth handling and excellent service provided throughout the process by Tom.
Redmond Realty successfully represented our interest in buying our home in Mission Dolores.
We’d previously contacted the owners directly about renting and/or purchasing the property several times but were unsuccessful.
We then learned the property was to be sold in a partition sale and contacted our attorney. Our lawyer referred Tom Redmond, Redmond Realty because we needed a “straight shooter” with knowledge and experience on our side to buy this property.
Tom helped us and added value every step of the way, including: referring a financing expert, setting property inspections and reviewing work estimates.
