I recently purchased my second home through Thom. Both experiences were so good that I have recommended his services to multiple friends and coworkers. Thom isn't just looking to make a sale, he goes out of his way to find the perfect home for each client. His honesty and professionalism really makes the experience a good one. If I purchase another home in the future I would absolutely use his services again.
I could list several adjectives here to describe Thom, but the one that matters most is, genuine. Have you ever gotten a dog from a shelter and realized it was not a good fit for your family? It may have too much energy or too little energy for your lifestyle? It's usually because shelters are trying to get the dog into a home, any willing body/home. They don't employ a matchmaker skill. Thom has that skill. He looked at the bits of our life we were willing to share and he guided us to our home. That takes genuine talent. Now I wouldn't go as far to say he's the Buyers Agent Whisperer, but he spent less than 24 hours with us, caught on to the people we are, took the list of houses we wanted to see, and he got us to where we needed to be. Our new home. Also worth noting that Thom was available to us whenever we needed him. He was there for the inspections, made a video for us, let in painters, and met us the day we finally arrived from Raleigh, NC with the keys to our home. Very reliable. Genuine. I urge you folks, take advantage of his talent.
Thom was the consummate professional from start to finish. He really knows the Bend real estate market, including it’s ups and downs, which won’t be found in a less experienced agent. Thom is honest and will tell you if he thinks a house is overpriced or undervalued. I highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy real estate in Bend.
Thom is incredibly experienced and knowladgable. Not only that, he's a fantastic guy, and always had my best interested at heart. I'm so happy with my home purchase, and Thom has helped every step of the way.
Working with Thom and his team was nothing short of fantastic. My wife and I recently moved to Bend and did not have much knowledge about the area and where to look for a home. Thom not only helped us find the perfect home, he made us feel 100% comfortable and confident along the way. He is VERY knowledgeable about the area and gave us honest, straight-forward input with every home we looked at. From garbage routes and high traffic roads to stay away from, to great neighborhoods and homes we could feel confident about growing equity, he covered it all. Thom helped us find our dream home and we can not thank him enough. Cheers, Thom!
Thom is very knowledgeable and experienced with the housing market in Bend. As a first time house buyer I knew nothing about purchasing houses, and he easily helped me through every step of the way. It was awesome working with him, and I am extremely happy with house I purchased.
Thom Gardner is the best realtor I've ever worked with. Extremely attentive, resourceful and always available to you. I wouldn't work with anyone else.
Thom Gardner is a gem! I have lived in Bend for over 20 years and know many brokers, but the sale of the home and the purchase of the next one "could not have gone any better" due to Thom's knowledge and experience. From start to finish, every detail of the contracts and follow up on dates was taken care of! Even the mortgage broker commented on how great he was to work with! Thanks Thom! Hoping this is the forever house, but I will certainly be sending my friends and family your way!
My husband and I found Thom on the internet while we were researching for a summer retirement home. With very short notice we asked Thom to put together a list of houses for us to visit and we flew into Bend. We spent several days with Thom and found him to be extremely professional, yet very friendly and warm. We were delighted to work with him and found our home within a few days. I highly recommend Thom. You can trust that he knows what he is talking about.
We found Thom "by accident" on YouTube, as a Subject Matter Expert as it relates to Bend area real estate. Being impressed with the content of his video we emailed him, and from the very start he put us at ease with excellent responsiveness, detailed answers to questions, obvious knowledge of the area as well as what we were trying to accomplish, and low pressure style and demeanor. Because of that comfort and trust level, as well as the great service he offers, we negotiated 3 possible purchase contracts with his help remotely, and didn't even meet him until a couple months later after when we were in escrow on TWO homes!! We would recommend him without hesitation (and if fact have already, to family members looking to buy in Bend). Thanks for your help and guidance Thom, and keeping us "out of the weeds"!! J&M
I was looking to buy a home in Bend and living in Seattle, I picked Thom on a whim from his website because I needed a buyers agent. Good choice-he was there for me every inch of the way, offering to do videos of the building progress for me and taking care of anything else that needed to be done. He would often offer to do things I didn’t even ask for. Not only did this convenience factor save me multiple trips from Seattle, but when it comes down to business Thom is also a skilled negotiator and saved me several thousands of dollars. It is obvious that he really cares about his clients. It was a great experience and I would hire him again in a heartbeat!
I honestly could not give a higher recommendation of a realtor than I am for Thom. Having bought and sold numerous homes over the years, but never from across the country, Thom made the experience as easy and smooth as possible - dare I say even smoother than most local purchases. The man's insight into the community, the housing market, and the trends is top notch and he was quickly able to steer us away from the wrong areas based on our desires and guide us to exactly the home and community we were looking for. His video walk throughs are amazing with the voice over detailing each part of the home and the quality and resolution as great as HGTV on your 70" plasma. I've been so impressed with him that it's made working with a local realtor on selling my home almost depressing. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED
Thom is an amazing agent! He has helped us purchase several properties, and we always get the best deal possible. He's thorough, organized, and really knows the Bend real estate market!
Thom was recommended to us by a friend of ours. For me, anytime I have to deal with a "salesman" I cringe a bit. However, from the minute we met Thom it was a sigh of relief. He immediately made us feel very comfortable and as we spent the day with Thom, showing us properties, we quickly realized he wasnt trying to sell us just any property, he was helping us find the right property for us. He was extremely knowledgeable and very up front with the yes's and no's of the area based on what we wanted. We spent a few months looking and asking numerouse questions before we bought our home, and Thom was so patient and helpful. Once we bought our home, he handled every detail for us. If you want the best, I would not use any other agent but Thom.
From the initial inquiry about the Bend housing market to closing on a house, Thom is hands down the best realtor I've ever worked with. He knows the market, learns his clients quirks quickly, and has endless patience. He also provides excellent advice to navigate the hurdles on multiple offers and problems with inspections and is never pushy. Overall excellent in all regards.
Thom was just wonderful! I couldn't have asked for a better realtor. He specializes in out-of-town customers, so he does video walk-throughs to help potential buyers decide whether its worth coming to Bend to look at the homes in person. Which is the reason why I chose him, as I was living 200 miles away. He went above and beyond for me as the first offer on a house was withdrawn (by the builder, not by me) and Thom worked on his Sunday, while I was still in town, to show me new homes in better neighborhoods. His help and dedication enabled me to make an offer on a nicer home, which was accepted. Thom's follow-up is outstanding, too, as he was checking after close to make sure the builder followed through on replacement cabinet doors that were damaged. He's a great realtor and a great guy, and you'll be happy you chose him!
I have purchased and sold a lot of real estate throughout the country and working with Thom Gardner was by far the most positive experience I've ever had with an agent. Thom has a wealth of experience in Bend and Central, Oregon...and his knowledge of the area and all the factors to consider is invaluable. He does his homework, came prepared for the days we spent together looking at various properties, and then offered objective factors, pro and con, which we needed to consider about each of the properties we looked at during our search. Thom is very personable and made the entire experience enjoyable. My wife does not especially like looking at homes but she never tired and felt excited about the homes we were viewing. Plus Thom as able to give her/us a better idea of what life is like in Bend and what we can expect. When it came to negotiating, Thom was extremely skillful and tactful and his follow up was excellent. The transaction went smoothly and we were well informed during the process. Oregon is unique when it comes to rental property and Mr. Gardner was well versed on the laws of the land, which we needed to be aware of. To sum everything up, it's our hope that once we settle in Central Oregon, we'll be able to socialize with Thom and his family and get to become closer friends. If you're looking for a home or property in Central Oregon I highly recommend that you first contact Thom and let him help you find the home and neighborhood that's going to be right for you!
Thom was thorough, timely, and professional. We greatly enjoyed working with him and found our dream home after only a couple of weeks of searching Bend's homes. I recommend Thom and Bend Brokers Realty for all buyers; he made our out-of-state moving process very smooth. For new home buyers, remember to set-up your water and waste removal in advance of the move-in day. Happy house hunting!
I cannot recommend Thom enough. We moved to Bend for work, from out of state, and had no idea where to start looking for a home. Thom listened carefully to what was important to us, then demonstrated consummate knowledge of Bend and its real estate market in helping us find the right place. All the way to signing, he was never less than one hundred percent professional and available... not to mention the stuff that really matters to us: thoughtful, kind, and infinitely patient. A rare find.
I called Thom after reading all of his great insight and knowledge about Bend on his website. We came three times looking for a second home in Bend. Each time we came Thom showed us many properties and gave us the pluses and minuses of each area we looked at. We ended up with a foreclosure property on the Westside of Bend near the river. Thom worked hard for us throughout the unconventional foreclosure property buying process and kept us updated constantly . We closed six weeks after initial signing of the contract. We are happy and we have gained a great new honest friend in Bend”. Thanks Thom!
Thom was great to work with! As a first time buy, he walked me through everything and was always available with any questions I had. He has outstanding knowledge of the area and market. I appreciate that Thom worked with me to look at homes with very little notice. Since I wasn’t from the area, he did a great job filtering out houses that wouldn’t be a good fit. I highly recommend working with Thom if you are a buyer in the area.
We just purchased a house in Bend. Not only did we need a big home that would fit three small families spanning two generations that would also meet our budget, we needed a particular layout. We weren’t easy clients so felt very, very lucky to have Thom as our realtor because of his knowledge of the Bend housing market, his ethics, his patience and his responsiveness. As buyers from out of town, I’m convinced we wouldn’t have gotten this house without his help. We highly recommend him to others looking to buy in Bend. Thanks again Thom for all your hard work!
Thom was great to work with. Being new to the area, Thom would pick me up and take me on tours of all parts of Bend as we looked at homes, and he gave honest insight into the different parts of Bend, much appreciated! He was always available and responsive in all aspects of finding and purchasing a home. I highly recommend working with him!
Thom made buying my first home a stress free and enjoyable experience. He bargained for a great deal that saved me tons of money, and made himself available even after the sale when I had questions about how things worked or where to go for upgrades and repairs.
Thom came highly recommend to us from our financial advisor that used him a few months prior. My wife and I were first time home buyers and Thom made the entire process comfortable and easy from the beginning. He's extremely personable and a hard worker. A good example of his work ethic is when he left the country to go on a vacation he planned well before meeting us. While he was gone, a house my wife and I wanted became available again and Thom spent hours doing the paperwork in a location that barely had a wifi signal. After negotiating on our behalf in a different time zone, the house became our new home. Can't speak highly enough of Thom, he's a great guy to have in your corner.
Thom Gardner was highly recommended to me by several coworkers who all swear by him. And despite the high bar of expectations these coworkers set, Thom met all of them and more. He's extremely knowledgeable, personable, genuine, and my experience with him could not have gone any better. As a young first time home-buyer who was relatively new to Bend, my knowledge of the buying process, housing market, and neighborhoods was limited and minimal. Thom took the time to educate me, answering any and all questions no matter how simple, so that I felt comfortable and informed in the decisions I was making. Thom was there every step of the way, making sure I was a priority and that he was available even when he had to be out of town on other business. I certainly plan on using his services for any future sales or purchases. I've already recommended him to other friends, co-workers, and will continue to do so for anyone looking for a well-qualified realtor in Bend!
I can't say enough good things about Thom. I just bought a house with Thom as my agent. I found him on the internet and was drawn to the fact that I did not have to sign an exclusive agreement up front. He provided the standard services you would expect from a buyers agent ( set up a portal, show properties) but went further by always giving me local knowledge on neighborhoods, areas, and the good and bad of a property. He represented my interests at every step. A true buyers agent in every sense of the word. I highly recommend Thom if you are looking to buy in Bend.
Thom just helped me to buy a wonderful house in Bend. He was great. He listens well, understands your needs and then proceeds to help you find the house you are looking for. He makes excellent suggestions along the way and works hard on the search and then on the closing ensuring that you get the best possible deal . He is trustworthy, likable, respectful, well organized, punctual, very resourceful and he knows what he is doing. He made the whole buying process very smooth and pleasant. I could not have asked for a better agent. Thanks Thom!
It was a great experience working with Thom and his team. He has vast knowledge of Bend and the surrounding areas. He took time to get to know us and what we were looking for. Thom is very personable, very enjoyable to work with. I highly recommend Thom Gardner, Bend Brokers Realty!
Thom is a great realtor who provides exceptional customer service and knows the market in Bend very well.
Fantastic! Thom was essential to us finding the right home and guiding us through the whole process. Being from out of town, his knowledge of the local market was indispensable as we narrowed our search. If you want a home in Bend, Thom is your guy!
Thom is one of the best! He is very genuine, super-friendly and is exceptional at what he does - going above and beyond for what his clients need. During our search, we sent Thom about 20-25 homes that we liked and he gave us his timely and honest feedback about each home and neighborhood. Based on his insight and a great video tour that he did for us, we were comfortable purchasing our home "sight unseen"! If you are looking to move to Bend, you won't find anyone better than Thom!
Thom provided us with excellent service. His knowledge of the Bend real estate market is unparalleled. His approach to your home search and the way that he conducts transactions will be cool and calm. He's everything and more than what you see on his website and videos.
Thom at Bend Home Buyers Agency was the best agent! We recently moved to Bend and had a bad experience with another agent here in town, we’re so glad we found Thom. He was on our side and gave us great advice and shared his wealth of knowledge with us about the area. We really appreciated his honesty and we felt like we were in good hands throughout the process. We would definitely recommend Thom!
Looking specifically for a buyer's agent in Bend, we feel incredibly lucky to have found Thom. Initially it was his honest tell-it-like-it-is approach to real estate that intrigued us, and he delivers exactly what he promises - truthful insight into not only the business but also in evaluating individual properties, neighborhoods and situations. He takes expert and thorough video walk-throughs when his client is unable to be there in person, gives immediate attention to anything necessary, and has a 'can-do' approach that makes a client feel secure and comfortable. His incredible service in helping us buy a home in a difficult market really exceeded our expectations, and his creative, amiable personality have made working with him a true pleasure. Debbie & Michael Stalker
Any kind words we would say about Thom wouldn’t really cover it – he exceeded our expectations in every way. Our purchase was a complicated short sale that never would have closed without Thom’s diligence, tough negotiation, honesty and integrity. You’ll never find a better agent or friend.
Getting to know Thom via internet and email before we visited Bend was a straight forward and enjoyable experience. We spent two pleasant and fun days with him looking at a range of properties he found within our budget. From this he deduced what we were looking for, and we knew then that Thom was a competent professional as well as a good friend. Back home out of state, when we saw an interesting listing on the internet, he sent us videos, descriptions etc. One house that he said was “just what we were looking for” was, in fact, just that. We bought the house sight unseen based on his video and narrative. The purchase went smoothly with Thom’s expert help and negotiations. We couldn’t be happier!
We cannot say enough good things about Thom! If I could give him 10 stars I would! We worked with him for just about 1 year in our home search. As first time home buyers, the process seemed daunting, but Thom stuck with us through several contracts and inspection periods until we landed on the absolute perfect home. He went out of his way to provide us with information about each individual house and the Bend housing market as a whole. As a long time resident, Thom knows SO MUCH about the area and that really helped us to narrow down neighborhoods based on what type of lifestyle we like. He was always honest with us when he thought we were looking at something that didn't quite suit our needs and didn't hesitate to show us properties that we might have overlooked. Thom took the time to listen to our preferences and I felt like he had a really solid grasp on the type of home we were looking for. Ultimately that's why we ended up with a home down by the river, south of Bend. We're so in love with our new house and I'm thankful that we had Thom to guide us through this process from start to finish. Thank you, Thom, for being such a thoughtful and patient realtor. We really felt like you were a partner in our home search (not just someone who unlocked houses).
We were moving to Bend from out of state, and Thom worked with us seamlessly to find a new home in a very short window of time. From first meeting to closing, Thom made the home search and buying process as smooth as can be. He helped guide us to a neighborhood that perfectly fit us, and since we were new to town, that was invaluable. Since we were out of town for most of the process, Thom took the time to go into the field and shoot video tours of homes we found online that we were interested in – amazing. Once we narrowed down our choices down to our favorite and saw it in person, Thom was right there for us over email and phone until all contracts were signed, helping us easily understand the negotiations and making A+ recommendations. We couldn't recommend Thom and Bend Brokers Realty enough.
Thom is amazing! We’ve worked with him several times now buying and selling properties. We found his responsiveness, knowledge and thoroughness to questions beyond compare. Thom is down to earth, easy to communicate with and has a wonderful, warm sense of humor. We love the videos he created for properties we were unable to see in person ... especially his honest, no holds barred commentary. Working with Thom made the purchase of our home sight unseen from out of state a breeze. Thank you Thom!
“This is just a note to thank you for the incredible job you did in helping me in relocating to Bend. I became infatuated with Bend without ever having been north of the California border… I knew nobody here, had no professional or personal contacts in the area, and had to make the move in a very short period of time due to the exigencies of my financial situation. You were extraordinarily generous with your time and energy, establishing an internet “portal” where I could view homes for sale, as well as answering a deluge of my questions with humor and a positive point of view. You not only made the experience tolerable, but actually enjoyable! Your relaxed interpersonal style was complimented by your consummate professionalism. The fact that you are a member of Mensa as well as the author of several novels has not diminished your ability to empathize with your clients. After living here in Bend for a few months I have had the good fortune to interact with you at times. It has become very clear that your professional persona is really just ‘who you are’… An intelligent, savvy, good natured and warm hearted family man… And someone who has gained my appreciation and ongoing trust. Thanks Thom.”
Relocating to Bend from 3000 miles away seemed like a daunting task. We contacted Thom Gardner with Bend Brokers Realty for help. Thom replied quickly and was very helpful with evaluations of listings in our price range. Thom is very personable with great communication skills. He devoted considerable time to our search and his knowledge of the local market, pricing trends and neighborhoods, in and well outside of Bend, was extremely helpful. Thom took care of the details before and after the sales agreement including inspections, service, and negotiations with the seller, eliminating any problems that the distance might have caused. We are now looking forward to the move and will be recommending Thom to anyone looking to buy in this area.
Thom is great. His knowledge of Bend's market, the city's layout and the general process of buying a home in Oregon is second to none. I highly recommend him and will use him again if given the chance!
My wife(Jenny) and I have known Thom for over 10 years. Sometimes it can be sticky to hire a friend as your real estate broker, but we had no hesitation whatsoever. We knew that Thom would be the best fit for us. His knowledge of the local market and the ins an outs of real estate transactions is second to none. He tells it like he sees it...no hot air. He is not in it just to get a sale.
