Listed and sold a home
I am so glad we chose Tom to list our house. This is what he did for us: 1. ALWAYS was available and or called back within an hour of leaving him a message 2. Provided us with an extensive market evaluation portfolio and took the time to thoroughly walk us through it so we felt confident in accepting his suggested listing price 3. Helped us determine how best to present our house to the market-in our case he realized that there were oak flooors under our old carpet throughout the house and arranged for a contractor to come in and rip up the carpet and refinish the floors for a price that was extremely reasonable and they looked absloutely beautiful. This helped us maximize our selling price greatly. He also arranged to have some painting done, the windows cleaned, and to have a broken garage door fixed and made sure all the work was done on time, properly, and was done at a reasonable cost. 4. Helped us decide which offer to accept (in our case we had 2 on the 1st day the house was on the market) and to ensure that all the buyer's contingincies were signed off on exactly when they were supposed to be. 5. Got the deal done exactly as he said he would and never pushed or hard sold us. We felt like we were partners in the process. I would highly reccomend Tom to anyone who is looking for an honest broker who will faithfully represent your interests in a professional caring manner. If you have any doubts at all after talking with other brokers, please do yourself a favor and call him. If you are one half as pleased with him as we were you'll be glad you did Less ... More

Tom Stachler was recommended to us by a friend. We found him very knowledgeable. We are new to home ownership and he pointed out various things in a house to look for/avoid as well as negotiating points. What I loved about Tom was his promptness, the way he made sure everything happened in a timely fashion, his follow up, and his ability to recommend contractors to work with on home projects. I would definitely recommend him to others. We found a home in Ypsilanti that we love and are currently having one of his recommended painters paint the house. Couldn't be more pleased! Less ... More

None. We connected, but it did not work out.
I would by no means suggest in any regards the business 'prowess' of Tom Stachler. I contacted this man in regards to a property in which the outbuildings were literally crumbling and falling apart and the weeds were shoulder high - his listings online however showed buildings in pristine condition with freshly manicured lawns - but he lists them as newly remodeled and painted and talks about how everything is fresh and new. This man's deceptive business practices only serve to prove the desperation of some businessmen to lie to online potential clients to get as much money as possible for a house that is literally falling apart - and when brought to question about his potential mistakes his first response is to say 'You couldnt afford it anyway'.

Response fromTom Stachler, ABR,CDPE
This individual certainly has a lot of extra time on his hands. To be accurate, the gentleman was informed during his 30 second phone call, that the property had photos taken when the tenants took possession of the home over a year ago and yes recently the grass was left uncut. This prospect was never inside even one of the buildings so I don't know how they can comment on the condition of the property other than peeping through a tenants windows. I remember the person because 5 seconds into the call, he started belittling the condition of the property and especially the price the seller had placed upon it even though they had never toured the property. One truthful statement they did make however.....We did say "it didn't matter anyway".... but we explained to him that was because someone else had seen the value and had an accepted offer for more than the current listing price!

I started looking for a house in the Ann Arbor area, and ran across Tom's website. I chatted with him for a while, and then my circumstances changed and I began looking in Jackson. Tom still worked with me, and I found a house that was perfect for our needs. Tom met me at the property, we looked at it, and I put in an offer. I moved into the home last week. There were some difficulties as it was a Fannie Mae property, but Tom was very responsive via email, which worked well for me. I am extremely pleased with the house, and with the services he provided. A lot of the work was via email and through his website, but when I found a property, Tom was right there to show it to me, put in the offer, and work with me to keep me informed during the lengthy process. I would recommend him to others who are buying a property in the area. Thanks Tom! Less ... More

We used Tom to both find and purchase a new home and then to sell our current home. Tom worked well with us to locate and visit new potential homes. He was very helpful and showed us the type homes we were after and helped us through the negotiation process. When it came time to sell, Tom provided useful advice for staging and pricing the home. He represented us well and got a good price for our home. We would and have recommended Tom's services to others.

Tom's reviews do not reflect the experience I got. All I was directed to was a website, then do all the leg work yourself. What I mean by that is: the only contact I had with Tom is if I was interested in a house through his webpage. He did not suggest homes for me in the Ann Arbor area that I would be interested and then give me the lead on the house, AA is a tough market so you need a go-getter who is willing to help you find a home; not a man out for himself. I moved on so should you.
Response fromTom Stachler, ABR,CDPE
Scam response: The listing referenced is 3049 Appleridge which is currently an active property which has not been sold since 1997. In the submission they reference I helped them with a house and provided the address. In the paragraph they reference they didn't work with me. Which is it since they conflict. Obviously a scammer or a untruthful person we would not have chosen to work with.

My wife and I were referred to Tom Stachler by a friend who recently used him to purchase their home. They were happy with Tom so we decided to give him a chance. Tom sent us some homes to look at through his website and we met with him for the first time on a Wednesday to go look at some listings. By the end of the night Tom had an idea of what we were looking for and suggested that we drive through a neighborhood not far from where we were. On the drive home, my wife and I looked in the neighborhood Tom suggested and a house caught our eye. We sent Tom an e-mail that night and the next day (Thursday) we did a walk through, Friday we made an offer and it was accepted two hours later. Less than a month later we moved in and I'm currently writing this review from inside our new home. Tom held our hands through the whole process, he made sure we were not taken advantage of and the mortgage company he suggested was great to work with!!! Tom was always available and prompt to return calls/e-mails which was important for me! Tom Stachler did a great job for us and I would recommend him to anyone who needs good, sound advice from a competent Realtor! Less ... More

One of the most resourceful and energetic real estate brokers I have worked with. Seemed to work 24/7; yes, he responded to my emails on Sundays. Yes, he provided a seemingly endless number of use resources at his web site. Yes, he provided important and up-to-date data on Ann Arbor and surrounding communities.

As a buyers agent, Tom gave us the scoop on the house beforehand and did not show us any "bad" houses. As a sellers agent, Tom helped us sell our home for 20% more than we paid in less than 2 days.

We recently purchased a home and used Tom Stachler for our realtor. He was exceptional !!! The house had several bids but Tom's negotiating skills were wonderful and we won the bidding war. Tom answered all of our questions promptly -even on weekends and late at night. Since the closing he has frequently contacted us to make sure that we are happy with our new home. I would highly recommend him.

Tom is a highly professional, knowledgeable and diligent real estate agent. No matter what obstacle presented itself, Tom knew what to do and stayed on it until the issue was resolved. Tom's excellent service made me feel like I was his only customer, which I know was not the case. He freely offered his opinion on houses we looked at and I valued his vast building experience. Tom's recommendations for financing, inspections, and the other assorted "jumping through hoops" phases of home buying were all on the mark. I would without hesitation recommend his services to anyone in the home market. He made my "Dream Home" a reality. Less ... More

Tom is the best this is what runs in my mind whenever I think about the process of buying our first house in USA. I was oversees when I decided to come back and buy a house in Ann Arbor area, and Tom was there for me. Through email and his website ?the best site for searching houses? he and his staff spend time with me and helped me while I was still oversees. The most important thing about Tom is he respect you, never get bored or exhausted while showing you different houses every day. And whenever you call, email, or text him, he?ll answer day or night ?around midnight?. Even if you call him Saturday or Sunday, he?ll answer you and whenever you want to see a house he?ll be there; there is no ?later, I don?t have time now, I can?t, I?m busy now? in his dictionary. The other thing about Tom is he has experience, and he?ll tell you negatives and positives about the house, he never pushes you to just buy any house. What I liked most about Tom is that he trusted me, and that is why I trusted him. Less ... More

Tom did an excellent job in helping us find the right home and negotiating the price with the seller. He was very responsive and knowledgable about the area. He also provided many great resources for home inspection and contractors. I would definately recommend using Tom when buying a home.

Tom gets results. As a first-time homebuyer, Tom was very helpful, first with identifying properties (sifting through short-sales, pre-forclosures, and accepted sales that Zillow still sometimes shows as regular listings.) Tom's local experience, especially with the other realty companies in the area, and with my home inspector, were crucial in getting my home deal done quickly. The foreclosed property I purchased had plumbing and appraisal problems, which Tom was able to fix quickly, completely at the seller's expense (this is rare with an as-is foreclosure). I wanted to act fast, and Tom and his network helped me do that. Once you pick a property, Tom will fight for you to make things happen and get you to closing- this is where he shines. Tom also provided me great lender and insurer references, and also references for service companies and discounts to use once I had possession. I believe in shopping around, but even after double-checking service and pricing of the Inspector, Lender, Painter, and Carpet dealer he referred me to, I found them to be very competitive. Using the mortgage lender and title company affiliated with RealEstateOne means everyone works together and things get done fast. Less ... More

Absolutely the best. Have to agree with the previous posts, Tom doesn't seem to sleep or rest. Anytime I emailed him asking some question, he responded to my emails immediately. Day time, evenings, weekends (that include Sunday evening), hollidays, you name it. If you are looking for an agent who is knowledgable about the real estate, aggressive enough to get the job done, and someone who responds to your questions in a timely manner, Tom is your man.

Tom was fantastic and took care of everything that was in his sphere of influence. His knowledge of the area, general construction, and the overall home buying process left nothing to chance. His staff was always supportive and requests addressed quickly. Tom has a lot going on but always got back to me within a short time. I highly recommend Tom's services.

Tom Stachler is one of kind buyer agent for his profound experience in real estate field. Tom processes outstanding interpersonal and people skills that make him a winner in almost every transaction. His integrity and perfection of his profession are some of his unique qualities. It does not take much to figure out his unstoppable commitment to be on the client side. He is a great negotiator and brings eloquent advice to his clients above and beyond expectations. I have enjoyed having Tom as my realtor while closing on our first house in Ann Arbor, MI. Tom utilizes both state-of-art technology and good-old-days tools to communicate real estate information with his clients and is doing it superbly. He employs strong assistants who also as responsive and professional as Tom. His website therealtytours.com is an award winning website for those searching to buy homes in Michigan. Tom cares about my bottom line not his commission. I found him the most knowledgeable agent of Ann Arbor and East Michigan real estate market. As a builder, Tom provides in-depth advice to his clients on construction and safety aspects of properties so they can make sound decisions. I strongly recommend Tom for all real estate needs.

We sold our first house with Tom in Ann Arbor in 2004. He gave us excellent advice and the house was sold in Feb for nearly full price. When we came back from Florida we bought our current home through Tom. He helped us get an excellent deal. I have worked with many realtors and Tom is the best. He is very patient, helpful, and knowledge.

I feel like I hit the jackpot! I'm from Iowa so started my search for a house months ahead of time on the internet. Luckily I clicked through into Tom's site, and entered a very general search. Tom contacted me immediately and continued to do so for about 5 months until we were actually ready to look at houses. I don't know when (or if) this man eats or sleeps. My email and phone messages were answered promptly even if they were sent late at night or early in the morning, and he even showed houses to us on his birthday! Tom is extremely knowledgeable in all areas of real estate and building issues and has an excellent handle on area housing conditions. He's not pushy but will expose you to areas and housing types that you had not considered. We ended up purchasing one such house. Nor does Tom stop working once the offer is signed. I was a "newbie" in the real estate arena and he has literally walked us step by step through the sometimes tedious and detailed process of closing. I would highly recommend Tom Stachler; he is a man you can trust, like a bright star in the crowded real estate world. Less ... More

Tom has handled the listing and sale of two properties for us. Both were handled in a most professonal way. Tom is knowledgeable and knows his market well. He is most helpful for anything you need related to real estate services. I recommend him most highly. This coming from a former realtor whose standards are very high. You won't be disappointed!!

Tom Stachler is the best! He is professional, knowledgeable, more than helpful, punctual, efficient and prompt returning e-mails and phone calls and a good resource for home helpers and services. He is easy to work with. I have recommended Tom to two friends all ready...one of whom did purchase a house from him and liked working with him as well! He has a good sense of humor which I believe is a MUST when interacting with clients. All persons needing a new home or selling a house would be remiss to not use Mr.Stachler as an Agent. Less ...

My husband and I were trying to buy a rental property in a very specific location that was in our budget. Tom worked with us for a long time to find the right house. He helped us negotiate a good price and we are happy with the deal we got. Also, we couldn't use conventional financing and Tom found a loan institution willing to work with us. After the closing, Tom offered to list our rental on his website as well. This is service beyond any of our other experiences with real estate agents and we've purchased 6 homes. We can recommend Tom without reservation and will contact him in the future if we purchase another home. Less ... More

Tom is by far the best agent I have ever come across. His negotiating sills are out of this world. I recommend him to everybody looking for a home. We have bought 2 homes with Tom as our agent. Everybody always talks about how scary it is to buy a home. Well Tom makes it easy, and hassle free. We just told him which house we wanted and let him do his work. His negotiating skills are off the chart. I would never use another agent other than Tom. -Brandon
