Tom Butler Team Difference

We take care of everything, from the moment you open your door to us, all the way to close.

You need someone who knows this area inside and out! As an agent who’s an expert in this local area, Tom (who’s lived here for 30 years!) and his team bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It’s not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information and we are eager to serve you.



Selling Your Home

Whether it be advertising your home, showing to prospective buyers, negotiating the purchase contract, arranging financing, overseeing the inspections, handling all necessary paperwork, or supervising the closing, we can take care of everything you need from start to close. So if you’re looking for a partner to help you negotiate the complexities of selling a home, you’ve come to the right place. The experience, dedication, and strong communication you’ll receive here will help ensure the successful and profitable sale of your home. Here are some of the other advantages we offer when selling your home:

The Local Advantage

Take advantage of our broad spectrum of technologies and tools dialed in to the local market to support the sale of your home from start to close.

Internet Advertising

Since the lion’s share of home buyers starts their search on the internet, top placement on search engines is essential. You’ll gain access to placement on Google, Bing, and other websites. This will maximize your exposure and bring a large number of potential buyers to view information about your home.

Email Campaigns

It’s important to “work the network.” We can work together to identify the right people to target your home and get in touch with them by email to drive excitement and interest.

Consult on Home Selling Tactics

Oftentimes buyers don’t visualize living in your home the way you do. We can make your home attractive to its ideal audience which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that’s sold fast.

Personal Touch

Of course, technology alone won’t sell your home. Face-to-face interaction provides the advantage to sell your home and you won’t have to worry about a thing. The details will be handled with care and constant communication to ensure the marketing and sale of your home goes smoothly.



Buying A Home

We can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter and the essential criteria you have for your ideal home.  One of the ways the Tom Butler Team differentiates itself is that…
