HOST OF THE JAY GARVENS SHOW
Tommy Daly and his team made shopping for our new home easy and pleasurable from the first showing of the first house right through the closing. It was quite a process, but Tommy was a great guide and gave great advice, without ever getting impatient with us and all of the changes. Thanks, Tommy!
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…
Tommy is a phenomenal realtor! Honestly, I can’t speak highly enough about his professionalism and the way he went out of his way for my wife and I. I’ve already referred 2 different couples to him and they have both loved working with him. You won’t be disappointed!
Tommy and his team are truly the best I’ve ever encountered. Looking for our first home was incredibly stressful until Tommy came along. He helped us purchase our first home by answering every single question we had, no matter how trivial. From start to finish, Tommy was friendly, knowledgeable, and available. He helped make our dreams come true!
Tommy did an awesome job! We moved out of state with our house still on the market. Tommy took care of everything we needed while we were away. It sold fast with no problems. A+!
Tommy was wonderful. Being first-buyer, we had a LOT of questions. He was 1) WILLING and EAGER to answer our questions, 2) AVAILABLE whenever we needed to talk, being accommodating to our work hours, and 3) he was able to answer them in a way we understood (no crazy real estate jargon). Tommy helped us through the process from beginning to end, every hiccup and speed-bump included. Even when we had issues with the financing companies, he was our advocate. He is clearly experienced, and he’s just…
My real estate agent, Tommy Daly, is simply the BEST! During the entire process of buying a home, he was personable, attentive and went the extra mile to ensure the experience would be as easy as possible. He was very understanding of our situation and did everything possible to make us feel at ease. He pretty much became a member of our family and I will recommend him highly to anyone in the area looking for a new home. I found him to be a very caring and empathetic person. If you want an agen…
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 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…
Helped us extensively. He found us services quickly son that we could get our house up to par. Was very friendly and in good humor. Was able to price our house in the right place so that the right shoppers were shown the home. Tommy is a great guy. Best realtor we ever had available.
