Realtor Intero Real Estate Walnut Creek - Tice Valley 01970487
A Bay Area native, Tom has lived, worked, owned homes and raised his family in Walnut Creek over the last 25 years. Tom finds great satisfaction in finding the right fit for his buyers and helping his sellers achieve the best price for their property. His clients'​ real estate needs are Tom's first priority. He holds a BS in Business from Cal State East Bay.

I am always available for you, my client, and to your referrals. I believe real estate is not only about "selling;"​ it's about consulting with honesty, integrity, exceptional customer service, hard work, clear and timely communication, and the unyielding commitment my clients have come to expect of me. 100% of my past clients refer me because they understand the value I add to the buying or selling process while adhering to the highest ethical standards in the industry.

In our internet-accessible world, the ability to search an online database of listings is not confined to realtors. A good realtor gets out into the community, visit dozens of homes each week, networks with other Realtors, knows the neighborhoods, schools, transportation options and the strengths and weaknesses of an area or a specific home, as well as the microeconomics and macroeconomics that drive home prices, interest rates, and lending practices, and, of course, helps buyers locate the perfect home.

A great realtor employs all of those skills, and uses constant effort and diligence to fully understand all of the variables that come into play when determining the value of a home, matches the right buyer with the right home, negotiates the contract, and stays on top of the countless details throughout the escrow process. A great Realtor recommends many different types of specialized contractors to help sellers prepare their home for sale or provide cost estimates to buyers considering a home.

I look forward to earning your business!

Tom worked with us from the moment we made the decision to move to the East Bay early in the year through the close of escrow on our new home at Trilogy at the Vineyards in Brentwood in March. His tireless energy in showing us properties, and expert guidance in helping us select our perfect home and navigate the purchase process are deeply appreciated. He was always immediately responsive to calls and emails and we are especially grateful for his expertise and help during the unexpected circumstance of the COVID-19 crisis. Tom is by far the best realtor we've every worked with in purchasing a home, and we recommend him highly.

Let me express our family’s apprecIation for the incredible job you did in successfully orchestrating all aspects of the detailed preparation, marketing and sale of my wife’s parent’s Rossmoor home is long overdue. To say that you went beyond the conventional expectations of a real estate professional’s typical responsibilities, would be a gross understatement. Your positive attitude, generous spirit, and strong bias toward action, knowing that it was paramount to get the job done within a very tight time frame, did not go unnoticed by any of us. Simply put Tom, you are just a super person and ROCKSTAR broker in our book! Please do not hesitate to post this letter on your website or to refer any potential client to us for a reference. It would be our absolute pleasure!

Tom is absolutely an amazing realtor and I highly recommend him. My family and I recently relocated to the Bay Area due to my work. Since my wife and I had never been to this area, this was a unique challenge. Along with transitioning from 20 years in the military and 3 kids in tow. Tom put a huge amount of effort into finding us the perfect home at a great price. We looked at dozens of properties between many areas. Every time we interacted he always was prepared, had a solid game plan, and was extremely accommodating. His vast experience really showed as he had questions to ask the sellers that I would not have ever thought of...even after this being my 3rd home purchase. Having raised a family here himself, he knows the Bay Area very well (schools, commute, etc). And not just one part, since he himself has lived in different parts. East Bay, FAR FAR East Bay, The City (SF), North Bay, South Bay, Silicon name it. Super nice guy, and very pleasant to be around. He deals with customers of all types, and was very VA friendly and knowledgeable. He is worth every penny and then some!

Tom guided us expertly through the pricing process for the sale of our home, resulting in a listing and sales price above our original expectations. He was very professional and knowledgeable throughout the listing and sales process. He provided excellent customer service through some quirky times due to the Napa Fire at our new house. I highly recommend Tom as a Real Estate Agent

I've bought and/or sold homes in the Bay Area four times. Tom is the best realtor I've ever experienced. He is "always on" like your internet connection. I've never called him and not gotten a quick reply. This was a very anxiety provoking move, and Tom "handled" me with great subtlety. Ultimate professional. On the other hand, he's remarkably well-read and cultured, so if you're an academic, you may find that you'll enjoy hearing his views on just about any topic!

Definitely 5 stars for Tom. Our house was sold above the asking price! Tom regularly kept us informed every step of the way. He would give us suggestions on how he would like to market the house but final decision was ours. He's organized, easy to work with & of course, very professional. Highly recommended!!!!

Tom Nevin is a knowledgeable, professional and responsive Real Estate Broker. He has assisted me numerous times when I have found a property that I have been interested in. He has taken the time to show me various properties and then educate me regarding the pros and cons of different buying/selling vs. remodeling options. He has also analyzed the numbers of my options and then provided me with the financial details of each option. Tom really cares about his clients and is a pleasure to deal with. I cannot say enough positive things about him!

It is not unusual to find a Realtor with market expertise or another Realtor with excellent people skills and patience. Lucky for us, Tom possessed both of these skills and many more!

Tom is great listener. He guided us patiently through the process of finding the right home In Rossmoor, by helping us narrow down our our needs and being flexible as we repeatedly changed our minds. His attention to detail and creativity in seeing the possibilities in a home helped us filter the positives and negatives of each home we visited until we found right one! His contract expertise made the process go smoothly and quickly. Integrity and care are the words that come mind when we think about Tom. We recommend him to everyone that we talk to.

Very happy client
Tom helped me through the process of purchasing my first home and I can not recommend his services, knowledge and humor enough! I was referred to him by my father who always seeks out the most qualified people out there. From day one, Tom immersed my boyfriend and I in a wealth of knowledge in terms of what to expect when purchasing a home, gathering the necessary documents, finding the right loan officer, how to properly evaluate homes of interest, the process of closing on a property and much much more. I went in with much hesitation on what to expect and just after a few days of working with Tom, I was completely confident in the process. Tom was very patient and when things didn't go our way, he was always ready with the perfect words of encouragement that always turned into a great learning moment. Tom goes above and beyond and will make your home buy/selling process- not only easy, but lighthearted and enjoyable.

He did a Great job, he really went above what any other Realtor would have done to help us get my Dad's condo in Rossmoor ready for sale. I live in Oregon and my Dad's is 90 we really need some help. Tom arraigned for everything including getting a charity to pick up the furniture we did not need and donating a lot of books. He setup the painters and carpet people, and much more. I have been in the mortgage business for 27 years and know a lot of Realtors. Tom is by far the best listing agent I have ever used. You cannot go wrong with Tom!! Kim Barry

satisfied client
Tom was very professional and friendly in every transaction. He gave us good advice about pricing and presented our property well, utilizing many different listing services, social media, and traditional methods. Ours was a modest property but his service was deluxe. An added plus about Tom is that he is an ethical, conscientious person.

Tom Nevin worked with us tirelessly for about 4 months, showing us literally dozens of Rossmoor condos. He helped us figure out what was most important to us, and he was willing to spend whatever time it took for us to come to a decision. We appreciated his infinite patience, his responsiveness, his staying in nearly constant communication with us, and his knowledge of how things work at Rossmoor.

Tom was most helpful, well organized and thoroughly professional when we had limited time in California to look at properties in Rossmoor. He has maintained a continuing relationship with us via e-mail and telephone to apprise us of new listings and trends and has been quick to respond to all our questions. His personal demeanor as well as his professional abilities recommend him.

The most important attributes you need in a realtor are a capable, candid and honest person representing you. Tom possesses all those. You will always have a clear understanding of what is going on with your deal - good or bad, along with good advice on how to remedy difficult situations. I would recommend Tom to anybody looking to buy or sell real estate in his region.

Tom helped us sell our house quickly last year. I was impressed with his commitment to our shared goal, and his willingness to devote as much time and effort as needed to reach it. He was particularly adept at using the media to market our house. I recommend him highly.

I can't say enough about Tom's professionalism, true caring nature, and extensive knowledge/connections. He brings all these qualities to the table for his clients, not just in the real estate transaction, but in the transition to their new home/community. Throughout the home buying process, Tom was extremely responsive and thoughtful in his recommendations to us.
