About Tom

When you are buying or selling property in today's real estate market, it's important to have confidence in your real estate professional. My commitment as your REALTOR is to provide you with the specialized real estate service you deserve and to work hard to become your trusted real estate advisor.

When you are an informed buyer or seller, you'll make the best decisions for what may be the single most important financial transaction in your lifetime. That's why my goal is to keep you informed on trends in the marketplace using the latest statistics and analysis of trends and a keen reading of the market in your neighborhood. I regularly update Market Conditions in my blog.  For mainly the Santa Clara (Silicon Valley) and San Mateo counties. Long term property values show a continuous trend up with periods of adjustments in which prices adjust downwards. With a long horizon, real estate is a sound investment for the future; however, the addition of my research into current market conditions and analysis of trends, I'm better equipped to develop and advise on the appropriate strategies that will help buyers or sellers accomplish their real estate goals.

My objective is to work diligently to assist you in meeting your real estate goals and work to become your trusted real estate advisor.  I do this first by getting to know you and understanding your plans and goals.  I ask a lot of questions! Armed with this information, I can use analysis of current market conditions to advise you of the most appropriate strategy that will help my client make a better decision. 

If you are considering buying or selling a home or would just like to have additional information about real estate in your area, or referrals to those to help you with maintaining or even improving your property, please don't hesitate to give me a call at 408-830-0092 or e-mail me at Tom.McEvoy@remax.net.

Thank you for visiting my website - please consider it as your online source for real estate information by bookmarking it, and return often for the latest property listing updates and market updates. Also, please remember to visit my blog for my latest thoughts on general market conditions for silicon valley.

About Tom's Services:

As a licensed California real estate broker with RE/MAX Santa Clara Valley, I have experience in a wide variety of transactions assisting clients with their real estate needs. I offer high-integrity, professional advisory assistance with residential (buy, sell, exchange), as well as multi-unit residential and commercial properties (buy, sell, exchange) and also offer my clients additional experience and education with the Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES) designation.  I regularly work with loan, legal, tax, architect and financial planning experts to assure my clients are provided the information necessary for them to make the best decision possible. I work hard to be my client's trusted real estate advisor and REALTOR for life, before, during and after each transaction! Since I do no self-promotion ads in newspapers or mail, referrals and repeat clients generate the vast majority of my business and I am especially grateful to those who think of me with their referrals.
