We started working with Monica a couple of years ago when we were weighing our options between remodeling or buying a new home. She was extremely helpful to us during that period. She kept us updated on homes that met our budget and requirements but also connected us with a contractor while we considered the remodel option. Monica Thomas is very well connected in the community and can connect you with whatever you need related to your home no matter where you are in the process.
Ultimately, we decided to buy a new house and sell our current home. I really believe that Monica, was the leading force in our bid being accepted on our dream home. It was a popular listing but Monica established a relationship with the listing agent so we were kept in the running and able to have an opportunity to counter. However, because of our situation, we made our offer with the contingency to sell our current home in two weeks. A normally stressful situation was made so much easier with Monica as our agent. She assisted us in fast tracking our house to be market ready and got it sold in a week! Our stress level was minimal because of her efficiency and knowledge. We’ve worked with other realtors in the past and have never had such a high level of service provided to us as Monica did. She’s professional and personable. We recommend her to everyone we know even only considering buying or selling because she is such a wealth of knowledge!
This is our second time working with Monica Thomas and just like last time she exceeded our expectations! Monica helped to guide us in vamping up our home go put on the market. She worked tirelessly to market and promote our open houses. Monica remained transparent throughout our process and we were so happy with the smoothness of the transaction during the sale of our home. I highly recommend working with Monica Thomas!
Monica is very knowledgeable of current market trends and a great resource during the offer letter phase through to the close of escrow. She is organized and a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend her!
Buying a house can be nerve-wracking and intimidating. When I was in the market for my home, I was scared but excited. Monica made the whole experience fun and reassuring. I had a previous experience with an agent that just pressured me and made me feel bad. Monica was the opposite. She is a genuine person and really just wants the best for you. I am very happy with the whole experience and would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
Monica was very professional and made our home buying process smooth and easy. She explained all of the documents we were signing along the way and was always quick to track down answers to any questions we had about the home. We were very pleased with Monica's service and it definitely made our home buying process a lot less stressful.
We would probably be considered experienced home buyers since we have bought 9 homes in 4 states and one abroad. One thing I never understood was why listing agents and selling agents split the commission, I always thought the selling agent should get a larger share until we sold our last house. We listed our home for over $4 million in the midst of an unexpected and disastrous housing slump, which especially hit the more expensive homes. Many of the homes in our price range were dropping by hundreds of thousands of dollars and few were selling. On top of the market conditions, after listing our home for sale, a home inspection discovered some surprising structural problems in our 18-year-old home. We were very worried about this and considered taking our home off the market to have everything fixed, and maybe relist it the following spring. Lesser listing agents would have panicked, but this is where Tabea Thornton and Monica Thomas came to our rescue! They knew a well-respected builder who was naturally very busy on other projects, but due to previous experience with them, they agree to work immediately on our house. This required a crew of 6-8 people for 10 days, but everything was fixed better than new. Within two weeks of having our structural problem fixed, while still in the throes of a major housing slump, we got 3 offers in one day, all of them were over our expectations and very near our asking price! We closed uneventfully just 21 days later. Tabea and Monica were a delight to work with. They were always poised, knowledgeable, and available. They kept us updated almost daily. They are the best real estate agents we have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Now we have come to realize that some listing agents are far underpaid!
