With over 16 years of residential real estate experience, Tom Watson has sold well over 250 homes, apartment buildings, and mixed-use properties in San Francisco, Oakland, and Berkeley. This time in the marketplace and experience set Tom apart in a number of ways. There’s not a challenge that he has not seen, not a problem that he hasn’t already solved. Tom calls on his vast experience to ensure a straightforward, thoughtful, and consistent experience for his clients.

Real estate transactions are complicated. Tom eliminates those complexities by implementing systems and checklists for every facet of his business and your transaction. Tasks are completed on time and deadlines are met. The tactics and strategies that Tom implements when it comes to marketing and negotiating your purchase or sale have been tested, modified, and perfected over the years. As a result, Tom’s clients are some of the most highly satisfied buyers and sellers in the marketplace.

Working with buyers, Tom asks all the right questions prior to submitting an offer, starting with making sure that his clients aren’t over-extending themselves or otherwise getting involved in a project that’s beyond their “handyman” skills or budget. Tom’s experience in remodeling his own home brings a knowledge base to the process not often seen with other agents. When a buyer says, “We want to write an offer,” Tom immediately begins the process of identifying potential issues that may not be readily apparent. Tom takes very seriously the role of protecting his buyers.

On the listing side, the use of social media and online advertising have become key components of successfully marketing and selling a listing for the highest and best price in the shortest period of time. Tom aggressively utilizes such media for his sellers. Once an offer is received, Tom leans on his negotiating skills and focuses on ensuring that the offer price is the same as the closing price. Tom’s number one responsibility to his sellers is protecting their hard earned money.

“It’s in the details.” Tom’s focus and approach to each transaction ensures that every possibility is explored. He takes pride in identifying various positive approaches to the negotiations that are a part of every real estate transaction. His fresh ideas and perspective produce unparalleled results and winning solutions to the most challenging negotiations. Tom welcomes the opportunity to put his experience to work for his clients each and every day.
