HOST OF THE JAY GARVENS SHOW
Working with Tommy was an amazing experience. Circumstances dictated the sale of our house in Colorado Springs and Tommy was referred to us. I have never met an agent who had higher energy or more on top of the various going-ons regarding the sale of our property. I could not have had a better experience. I honestly wish I was purchasing a home in Colorado Springs just so I could work with Tommy some more. I would recommend Tommy and his team to anyone looking for or selling a home in the Spring…
Tommy and his team were friendly and professional throughout the process. Tommy went above and beyond, helping me line up all the work to satisfy the buyers objections. (I was unable to do it myself as I had already moved to a new town for work). When my first buyer backed out, he had me back under contract with a new buyer in less than 4 hours-for the same sales price!
We met Tommy Daly, by contacting him, through one of his signs, he had up selling a house. He called back, and at the time we were with another realtor. We thanked him for the call back, but the house was out of our range. A couple months went by, and he contacted us to see how things were, and we were at a stand still with our realtor, and we had never signed a contract. Which was odd, so long story short, we gained contact with Tommy again, and we started working with him! He was very persist…
Tom helped my girlfriend and I find our current home here in the Colorado Springs area. It was no easy task with the housing market being what it is currently, but Tom sure made the process a whole lot easier. Tom is a self motivating agent and is ready to jump on any property that the buyer is interested in with short notice.
We can’t speak highly enough of our experience with Tommy Daly. We were first-time homebuyers with very little knowledge about how to find the right place. Every time we viewed a new property Tommy would perform a methodical inspection, looking for signs of problems and commenting on the quality of construction, finish, appliances, etc. Tommy is a true professional and you can tell he absolutely loves what he does! The best part about working with Tommy was that he was always more focused on an…
Buying my first home was a breeze thanks to Tommy Daly. The paperwork is unbelievable when you purchase a home. Tommy took the time to explain this step by step process. His knowledge and professionalism is top notch. I couldn’t believe how responsive he was to all of our requests and questions. Tommy was so helpful with home inspectors for the property. I recommend Tommy Daly to help you find your dream home.
Tommy went above and beyond for my husband and I. Tommy helped us find our new home while we were relocating from Hawaii, which would have been very stressful if it hadn’t been for him. The entire process couldn’t have gone any smoother. This was our first time purchasing a home and doing it sight unseen, we had to completely rely on Tommy, and he did not disappoint. Tommy communicated with us every step of the way whether it via text, call or FaceTime. He was so personable and to me that is su…
Tommy is the greatest! Very patient, understanding, and really listened to our needs regarding the perfect home for our family. 10/10 would recommend to others!
Tommy and his team did an excellent job making the home buying process easy and enjoyable. Tommy was patient with us as we spent months looking at homes, and when the right one showed up he made sure we got the house we wanted. He is definitely on your side and wants what is best for his client.
Tommy is the best realtor that we have ever had the pleasure of working with. He met with us and fully listened to what we were wanting in a house. The very next day, we saw our dream home through Tommy’s notification emails. He got us in for a walk-through immediately. We instantly knew that it was the house for us. Even in Colorado’s extremely competitive market, Tommy negotiated and got us an amazing deal on our lovely home. I appreciated not having to spend weeks looking at homes that didn’t…
