Testimonials

Read below to see what my clients have to say about our services!


In the fall of 2016 my wife and I were encouraged to meet Tom Stack by a close personal friend. This recommendation has changed our lives. 
As many potential home buyers know, the real estate market in the east bay (Lamorinda specifically) is extraordinarily competitive and with such low inventory the need for expert competent representation is essential. Tom Stack was our savior in this regard. He is professional, efficient, and one of the most personable individuals I've encountered in years. But most importantly, his commitment to advocating for your housing needs is what both separates him from other agents and put my family into the house where I write this recommendation. 
Our story is not an original one, but in 2016 my family was ready to purchase our first home and needed a great agent. Upon meeting Tom Stack I was cautiously optimistic, Many agents can talk a good game but lack when it's time to get to work. I was absolutely relieved by the personal interest and attention we received. Mr. Stack has his finger on the pulse of the market; my wife and I literally met for a viewing and had an offer submitted on a property within hours of its listing. On a Friday night!
Tom Stack has earned my most sincere recommendation. I'm so thankful I called him, our meeting changed everything for my family.  Tom Stack is a BOSS!

You are the BEST realtor anyone could ever want!
-Dawn & Steve, Alamo CA

Thanks for everything, Tom! For helping us get our dream home. For your patience and endurance with us. For all the phone calls, meetings, to do's and follow ups...for helping with the kids at each showing and inspection. Seriously, thank you! Best Referral Ever!
 
---Katie & Kevin, Orinda


We were very lucky to work with Tom Stack when we moved from the Peninsula to Walnut Creek.  It was our first time buying a house and we had been looking for a long time. Tom's knowledge and expertise of the market were invaluable and it was so helpful to have someone able to arrange inspections, repairs and meet with the listing agent since we were across the bay. Tom also has a great referral book that has been our Bible! 
-Natalie & Eric, Walnut Creek

All I can say is WOW! I partnered up with Tom to help sell my house and what I got was a first class, high caliber, real estate professional! I was so impressed with Tom's professionalism, personal attention to me, all the details and spot-on marketing strategies. Communication is such an important part of the deal. Tom always kept me connected and in the loop as we progressed.
 
Selling a home can be such a stressful ordeal, but with Tom's guidance, creativity and shoulder to cry on, he educated and motivated me to present my house as if it was from the pages of a magazine. Two Open Houses, over 30 interested visitors, multiple offers and loads of candy...Viola! Within two weeks.....one word......SOLD! 
 
Thanks Tom! YOU ROCK!!!......You helped me realize my dreams and move on to a new chapter of my life!
 
---Whitney, Oakland

We were so lucky to find Tom as our real estate agent. My husband and I were first time home buyers, and one of our friends recommended Tom to us. He started by talking with us and learning what we really wanted. He took time to drive us around the area and describe the different neighborhoods to us.

Besides his professionalism, the other thing we love about Tom is his honesty. He would tell us the real pros and cons of each location, and he even stopped us from putting an offer on a house located near a problem that we did not notice.

We started looking in mid-June of 2014. He helped us find our house in mid-July and we closed escrow in 3 weeks! We are amazed that he helped us find a home that we love within 2 months in such a competitive real estate market. Without him, we would not have found our home.

---Nicole & Anthony, Walnut Creek

 
You have sealed our fate and our gratitude to you is immeasurable. Thank you for not only achieving the "what" but also the "how" you did it is commendable---with transparency, responsibility and true expertise. Your skills and hard work over the last month has not just changed where we live, but also how we live! Endless thanks.

Alison and I are experienced real estate investors, and we had happily lived in Piedmont and the surrounding Oakland Hills area for over 25 years.  Our two sons graduated high school and began their college education.  We had been considering a change and had our eye on the Moraga area as a target destination. Fortunately for us, we knew Tom Stack whom has lived and worked in the Lamorinda area for several years.  We made him aware of our plans and goals for the type of property we felt could make a wonderful new home and town for us.

We were impressed with Tom's creativity and people/communication skills in helping us purchase a primo property, meeting all our major target goals and then some! His real estate knowledge of the Lamorinda area and the neighborhoods you want to be in (or don't want to be in) is outstanding. He's honest, fair and will insure a smooth escrow. We highly recommend Tom!

Best Regards to all Tom’s current and future Clients……Tom has a long history in music and a fair amount of that history I have been fortunate to share with him….so whenever Alison and I are hanging out at the new home with incredible views…..it is always cheers to Tom, Kiki, Sam and ‘Jammer’ …..and let the music play……cue up Jessie Colin Young: “Ridgetop”…..our local Red Tail Hawks guard the skies above and our Aussie Sheppard ‘Tango’ struts the fence lines with purpose (Aussies need a job)  loving his ranch style livin’ and never missing his previously more urban environment in Piedmont, and we feel the exact same way!

Thanks Tom….and the music never stops….
 
---Greg and Alison, Moraga, CA

 
Where do I start? For first-time buyers in the Bay Area, you need a knowledgeable realtor that mixes in psychiatry while exhibiting a "get it done" attitude. Tom gave me all of that. I flip-flopped on what I wanted, where I wanted to be and whether I was ready. Tom worked me through the process which lasted more than a year and nearly had me giving up on the market. That's when it pays to have someone like Tom who will turn over every rock to find what you need along with answering all the questions that come with buying.....and I had a lot of them. In the end, I landed in a place that fits the bill with all of my "wants" checked off. Thanks Tom!
 
---Daniel, Walnut Creek, CA

We recently purchase a home in Pleasant Hill and can't say enough god things about Tom. We would wholeheartedly recommend Tom to anyone thinking about buying or selling a home, especially in today's competitive market. He is kind, patient and just genuinely wanted the best for us. His negotiating skills got us a great price on a home we thought we could never get. Tom helped us win our DREAM house. Thanks, Tom for everything!!
-Kate & Derek, Pleasant Hill

 
If you are looking for a realtor that has an eye for detail, a keen understanding of real estate and true compassion for his clients...look no further than Tom Stack of Coldwell Banker. Buying and selling a home can be a stressful and emotional process and Tom is very helpful in both the emotional and financial side of the equation. He listed our home and sold it within days. He has represented our family and friends on both the buying and selling side with extraordinary results.
 
---Erin and Bob, Alamo, CA

Tom helped me facilitate what I thought wasn't going to be possible for myself & my fiancée - sell my condo in Walnut Creek & get us into a home in Oakland, all in the span of 3 months. Eve n better, Tom got us into the neighborhood we wanted to be in from the beginning in Oakland - not neighborhood choice #2,3 or 4. With the current competitiveness in the East Bay market, that's nothing short of impressive. I have only positive things to say of my experiences from working with Tom, starting with my initial purchase of Walnut Creek condo in 2013. Tom always had a vision, provided excellent guidance & helped we every step of the way as I went from first time owner in the Bay Area to first time seller and then on to first time Single Family Home owner. Overall, I strongly recommend Tom for anyone buying/selling in the East Bay area. To put it simply, since I started working with him in 2013, Tom has always been invested in what's best for me, the client. For that, I consider him both a friend and my realtor.

Tom worked well with all entities involved with the sale. He used his contacts to help find the right lender, inspectors and insurers. When we hit issues, his personal relationships really made a difference. He sent me current relevant articles to educate me about investment realty. Tom really went above and beyond his duties. I have already recommended him to fellow investors!

We worked with Tom Stack for over a year through a rather complicated relocation from another state to Lafayette. He showed us around Lafayette and helped us discover it's many attributes which ultimately lead us to purchase a home here.   He familiarized himself with our needs and wants in order to make our time together productive. He became our go to guy for any questions pertaining to Lafayette, contractors, schools, shopping and services.  He was available, accommodating and professional.  
 
We enjoyed working with Tom on every level and would highly recommend him to others.
 
---Ilene & Rob, Lafayette, CA

 
My wife (fiancé at the time) and I contacted Tom through a referral for the first time on May 12th of 2008.  Exactly two years and one week later, we closed escrow on the perfect home for us in Walnut Creek.  Not too many Realtors will stick with you after you go through two relocations, a marriage and the birth of your first child, but Tom did.  As first home buyers, we had some learning to do, and Tom coached us the entire way.  He walked us through the thought process and, without reluctance, submitted any offers we asked him to.  Our success hinged upon Tom’s insight and professional dealings with the listing agent.
We would recommend Tom wholeheartedly to anyone who is interested in buying or selling a home.
 
---Cole & Shane, Walnut Creek, CA

 
I have had the pleasure of working with Tom Stack twice. In both occasions he showed the highest level of professional ethics and dedication. The lengths he went to in getting us out of our condo on a short sale were exemplary. His integrity, motivation and HONOR take 2nd place to nobody. You simply cannot have a better person/Real Estate Agent on your side.
 
Thank you Tom for everything! I will never forget what you did to help us out.

After tons of soul searching, we decided to leave San Francisco and move to the Lamorinda area. We were uncertain of where exactly we wanted to live in Lamorinda and clearly had a lot of concerns on how our life style would change. There was absolutely no one better to help guide us through this transition than Tom. Having experienced the same move from San Francisco many years earlier, he was totally in tune with our wants, needs and concerns. He did a fantastic job showing us around all the areas, listening to our needs, laying out all of the options and never hesitated to provide his insight into the pros and cons of each situation.
We greatly appreciated his willingness to do anything for us, especially during the period between closing on the new house and actually moving.
Tom's large network of refferal agents also produced the agent that sold our house in SF, and for that we are extremely grateful.
We really can not say enough about Tom as he quickly became not only our "realtor for life" but a friend as well. As luck would have it, we even ended up becoming "around the corner" neighbors.
 
---Amy & Steve, Lafayette, CA

 
In June of 2009, my partner and I decided that we'd had enough of San Francisco for ourselves and our 3 small children. We had been living in approximately 1,000 sq ft with only 1 bathroom and no usable outdoor space. With one child heading to kindergarten the next year, we decided the time was right to find a better house and community for our family.
 
Our neighbor, a San Francisco Real Estate agent referred us to Tom, who was perfect. From the beginning, Tom was patient, attentive and extremely responsive (but never pushy). Having made the exact same move years ago, Tom understood precisely what we were looking for and threw himself into finding it for us. Tom knows Lafayette inside and out, and was able to save us time by weeding out houses that didn't meet our criteria. At the same time, when he said he'd found something special, we knew he was right and we jumped on it. Always honest, Tom never tried to sell us something that wasn't right for us.
 
When we came across our house, Tom was willing to be aggressive on price and effectively negotiate a deal that worked for us. He had our best interests at heart and worked hard to get us as much as he could. Throughout escrow and after, he was with us every step of the way, answering questions, arranging any work that the house needed or providing me with a  laundry list of referrals from his renowned Business Directory.
 
A month after moving, we are living exactly the life we were hoping for. We have a beautifully updated house with a gorgeous backyard that the kids play in every day. We live minutes from a top notch elementary school, hiking trails and a playground. Thanks to our son's terrific preschool just up the street, we already feel part of a close-knit community.
We can't believe we didn't' do this sooner. In any event, we couldn't have gotten here without Tom. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a house, especially in the Lamorinda area.

My husband and I were relocating back to the Bay Area after 3 years and knew we needed help buying our first home.  A friend of ours referred us to Tom Stack and it was an excellent referral.  Tom took the time in the beginning to help us understand what we were looking for, what we could afford and where we should be looking based on our needs.  Furthermore he helped us to understand where we could see the best value for our dollar. Tom was incredibly accomodating to our harried travel schedule, making himself available when we were able to fly up and was willing to show us multiple houses in multiple markets.  Once we found the house we wanted he walked us through the entire offer, inspection  and escrow process and again educated us on what to expect. 
 
It was such a great experience working with Tom.  As someone who worries about details it was reasurring knowing that Tom had everything inline and no detail was left to chance.  As a result we were able to purchase our home with confidence, knowing that we not only got the home of our dreams but the best possible deal. Even after the close of escrow Tom was available to answer questions, offers support and even gave us some really brilliant ideas on how to improve our home.
 
We could not be more pleased with our experience with Tom.  Tom without reservation goes way beyond what you would expect your Realtor to do.  His knowledge and expertise in his markets is so thorough and his cheerful and endearing attitude makes him such a pleasure to work with. We have no reservations in recommending him to anyone who is looking for a top notch Realtor.

It was apparent immediately when I first spoke with Tom Stack that my wife and I had found the right person to sell our house. Tom handled our situation with such dedication that it was easy for us to forget we were not his only clients. Selling our home was a completely different process than our original purchase with another agent. Tom brings professionalism and compassion which enables him to handle each transaction uniquely. The service and relationship that Tom provided truly surpassed our expectations. Tom is always the first person my wife and I contact with our current endeavors, and we would refer him to anyone we knew that was interested in buying or selling their home.
