Annette and Kirk Paulsen “Thomas is a laser-guided force of nature. Thanks to him, we sold our home in record time and received exactly the kind of offer we were hoping for — all-cash asking-price! Thomas executed every step of the process with the precision of a fine Swiss timepiece, including his masterful assistance with our staging, his superbly orchestrated open houses, and his steady guidance in helping us decide between multiple offers. Other agents said no one would ever buy a home in our neighborhood for the price we were asking —not realistic they said. Not only did we break through the price barrier for our area (our neighbors are thrilled), we did it in record time thanks to the many talents of Thomas Henthorne.”
Marjorie and Barry Sgarrella “Thomas’ expertise as the listing agent for our home in Novato resulted in the sale of the property for a record-breaking price. His work ranged from preparing a fabulous website that drove traffic to the property and really showed it off to maximum advantage, to advice on staging, and even his landscape architecture expertise improving the exterior of the property, to assisting us in negotiating the sales contract. It was all instrumental in the successful sale of this estate property.
As professional estate developers for more than 30 years, we are well-qualified to say that Thomas is the best agent we have ever worked with.”
Pat Hayman “Thomas helped us a few years back with a very difficult real estate situation that required an inordinate amount of his time with very little return. After watching him persevere through months of red tape, he stayed committed to his promise to help us get the property sold and followed through to the end.
When it was time for us to sell our beloved home of 20+ years, we turned to Thomas to once again to help us to modernize our Mill Valley bungalow. Thomas’s suggestions were spot on, including what to do and what was not needed so that we maximized our sales price with a minimum additional investment on our part to make our home attractive to today’s buyers. We sold our home before we were even able to hold an open house, and at our full asking price with a short escrow!
We trust and know Thomas to be transparent, authentic and honest. We will recommend Thomas’s services to anyone who wants to sell their home for its maximum value in a minimum amount of time with very little effort on the sellers part!”
Pamela Feather “Thomas is an exceptional agent, professional and knowledgeable. He never misses a step and is very easy to work with. He guided us on pricing the home quite competently, watching the market as the listing date approached. The house sold for just over the listing price and within the time frame he suggested it most likely would. He worked with our furniture and added in some items to stage the house giving it a nice open and stylish look, he knew exactly what he was doing. I will use Thomas again for my next home purchase and I highly recommend him.”
Janet Dresser “Thomas just did a fantastic job of selling my parents’ home. He staged the home, helped me with complicated paperwork, worked to increase the multiple offers and closed at $300,000 above the price!”
Lori & Craig Tomimatsu “We had the best experience working with Thomas. He helped to sell the house in a day with multiple offers while patiently answering all of our questions…Thanks, Thomas! You’re the best!”
Anne Pottmeyer Rohosy “Thanks to Tom for helping us sell this labor of love! He was professional and responsive throughout the whole process, quick that it was. If you need a partner in real estate, he’s your guy!”
Liz and Patrick Simon We were introduced to Thomas a few years back, from a couple who had glowing reviews of their experience of the sale of their home in Marin. When it was time to sell our home in Sea Cliff we turned to Thomas. From the outset, the process was so smooth. We are located in the South of France, and despite the distance Thomas handled the sale with such care and professionalism – the process felt completely seamless. Nothing was too much trouble, and Thomas was on hand to answer any questions at any time of day -and sometimes night! Thomas sold our home before the planned open day and above asking price. Mostly, however, we would say what an absolute pleasure it was to have dealt with such a kind and consummate professional – thank you Thomas!
Julie and Phil Milbrand There is a reason that Thomas is a top real estate agent in Marin – he is fantastic! He guided us through the entire selling process, from inspections to staging to offers and finally closing! His marketing was beautiful – from stunning pictures to drone videos to ads in Marin Magazine. What I most appreciated about Thomas was his responsiveness, calm demeanor, and professional guidance to help us make the best decisions. He is also pretty funny, and levity always helps in big stressful situations like selling and moving! Thank you Thomas for all your help. We wish you continued success in beautiful Marin County.
Tom & Cheryl Poeschl We cannot sing enough praises about the experience we just had with Thomas Henthorne. Both my wife and I are Realtors® with a combined 40 years of experience. In all our dealings with other Realtors®, we can honestly say we have never seen anybody go above and beyond the call of duty like Thomas Henthorne did while selling our San Rafael home. His attention to detail was impeccable. His correspondence was immediate. He performed tasks such as helping us get outstanding permits resolved to tree trimming to enhance our view. We would HIGHLY recommend Thomas Henthorne for anyone looking for an extraordinary Real Estate experience.
Wing Yu and Glen Haney Thomas sold our multi-million dollar home in Marin County in two days! In managing all aspects of the sale, he interfaced with the buyers, the buyer’s agents, stagers, contractors, and ourselves unobtrusively and effectively. We unreservedly recommend Thomas and Sotheby’s Realty for their friendly, can-do professionalism. Thomas understands the art of the deal.
Tom Callagy When it came time to sell our home we remembered how great our experience was when we purchased the home with Thomas. Thomas went above and beyond with making us feel welcome to the area and giving us tons of recommendations to check out. Thomas made the whole experience seem easy and seamless with his professional approach and constant communication through every step in the process. Thomas is a true professional and handled everything from staging to closing the sale. I will definitely call Thomas again when the time comes for our next move and I will recommend him to anyone asking for help purchasing or selling their home. Thanks again, Thomas.
Noemi B. Thomas is an outstanding realtor. He is the best we have worked with. Our San Rafael home was featured on the front page of the San Francisco Chronicle Sunday Real Estate Section (print and website) – due to the diligence of Thomas. He has really good manners, is personable and has an even keel temperament. From the large concepts to the smallest details – he handles everything with skill and gusto. How to price the home, how to stage it for style, how get it photographed for maximum effect, how to enhance the outdoors areas and landscaping to make the overall impression the best it can be – he was really good at each of these. He worked with us as a collaborator and showed us respect as home owners. We feel fortunate to have worked with Thomas to sell our unique custom designed home. We recommend him highly.
Kathy and Richard Bolds Thomas sold our house for us in April 2015. We had a large, custom and eclectic home in the Dominican area of San Rafael. We had initially listed it with another agent June 2014, after about 5 months we had no offers. We felt our agent at that time, didn’t market our property very well. We decided to re-list our home in March 2015, and went looking for a new agent. Thomas sold our house above asking price in 3 weeks. Thomas handled everything including advertising, as well as staging etc…He worked well with everybody, and was respected by all the agents that viewed our house. We feel this was a critical part of our sale. His honesty, integrity, tenacity as well as his accessibility and reliability were remarkable. He said what he was going to do, and then he did what he said and with the utmost professionalism. It was an absolute pleasure to have had the opportunity to work with Thomas. We would recommend his expertise and services to anyone whether you are a seller or a buyer.
Hannah and Steven Young It is with great gratitude that we write this acknowledgement of Thomas, our Realtor, who recently sold our home in three days in a slow coastal market. Thomas and his team created an amazing video with great music and visuals that really showed off the home. We knew what price we needed to get for the home and Thomas was confident that if it was marketed correctly it could be done. Thomas put his heart and passion into getting the house ready for market and three days later we had an offer at our price. We knew we were in good hands watching him take care of every detail. Thomas was professional at all times, listened to what we had to say and always remained calm. We would happily recommend Thomas as an excellent honest real estate agent.
William Freeman I have worked with many real estate agents over the years and I can honestly say that Thomas is one of the best. His professionalism, expertise and commitment to his clients is unsurpassed. He went above and beyond in helping me navigate the purchase of my home and continues to offer assistance and incredible service well after the close of escrow. Thomas has a true passion for his work and can I recommend him without hesitation.
Nan Zimmerman I have bought and sold multiple properties both in and out of California in the past 20 years and I can say in all sincerity that Thomas Henthorne is a true real estate pro. He has provided outstanding 5-star service during my Marin County home selling & buying efforts – skillfully asking useful and thought-provoking questions to guide me and rising to the occasion to be aggressive when circumstances have required it. He has proactively met with city officials to seek solutions and get answers, making phone calls, getting bids and in general going above and beyond to ensure a smooth transaction for me. His calm and measured demeanor is very welcomed and reassuring, as are his encouragement and optimism. In a very competitive and challenging market he has demonstrated a lot of knowledge about Marin; I trust him and find that he is often a couple of steps ahead of me – his years of expertise having come into play as my transaction evolved from a quick offer to a quick acceptance and a subsequent speedy close. Thomas is an honest but diplomatic straight-shooter with a wonderful sense of humor to match. I give him my highest recommendation and would be delighted to act as a reference, should any prospective client wish to speak to me.
Angela Lewis We had the pleasure of working with Thomas after stumbling upon one of his on-line listings and open house. We have bought and sold several homes on the Peninsula. But after meeting Thomas at the open house, we were absolutely convinced we wanted him to represent both sides. However, due to the multi-offer situation, Thomas was not able to represent us and referred us to a local agent. We were thoroughly impressed by his level of professionalism, responsiveness to the needs of both parties, and his impeccable staging skills. We later learned that he personally staged this home which greatly affected our decision to purchase. If you are thinking of buying or selling a property, look no further. Thomas is a master at making the daunting and sometimes unpleasant experience of buying and selling a home, an absolute breeze.
Forest and Laura Bronzan Words can’t describe the poise, dedication, and professionalism exhibited by Thomas during our Marin house hunt and purchase. In a very competitive market, Thomas was patient with us and his extensive experience ultimately helped us close on a fantastic home with multiple offers. He went above and beyond in all areas and demonstrated how beneficial a great agent can be. We will look to Thomas for future real estate needs as he is hands-down the best in the business and highly recommended without hesitation.
Marc Langenberg and Jennifer Loo Because of Thomas’ magic, we are living in our dream home today! We keep talking about how fortunate we were to have had Thomas represent us. He also sold our home in Mill Valley in just 6 days with multiple offers. He priced it right and knew the market very well. Our timeline with both the sale of our former home and purchase of our new home went right on schedule without a glitch. He went above and beyond the call of duty to make our home selling and buying experience both comfortable and trusting. He was always accessible, and provided such timely updates that we felt like we were priority on his list no matter how busy he was. I’d recommend Thomas a thousand times over as he is just simply the best.
Ralph and Joan Dauria Thomas was very creative and insightful in the marketing of our home. He made great recommendations and had incredible resources that helped us get our house ready to sell. Thanks to Thomas’ expertise and marketing, our house went into escrow within the first week of going on the market! He was always very responsive and proactive in preparing us for the process and next steps. We couldn’t have asked for a better agent to help us sell our home and we would not hesitate to recommend Thomas to any of our friends or colleagues!
Juan Penagos and Sabina Velasquez Thomas took on the task of selling our home of 12 years as if it were his own home. He was extremely professional and knowledgeable and helped us with every step of getting our home ready to sell from painting to staging to landscaping. Due to his efforts and great marketing, we received an offer at the first open house and sold our home for the full asking price! The next time we sell or buy a property, we will with no doubt go with Thomas!
Mark and Veronica Campton Thomas is an amazing real estate agent. My wife and I have bought sold homes all around the country. Our recent purchase in San Francisco and selling our home in the East Bay could not have been more complex. But Thomas kept his cool and provided options for us to work through the roadblocks and challenges. He also provided creative solutions for challenges in our new home renovation and landscape. Thomas understands the neighborhoods in San Francisco and was very helpful in narrowing down locations so we could then concentrate on the home to purchase. Working with Thomas was such a pleasure we also worked with him to sell our home in Lafayette which he sold the first week for over the asking price. We have recommended him to anyone who is the market to sell or buy and we will be sure to rely on him when it is time to sell this home too.
Jason Turner and Laurie Etheridge Thomas was our true champion. He pulled out all of the stops to get us what we wanted and needed (often things we didn’t even know we needed). He went above and beyond and at the end of it all, he got us the home we wanted, negotiated in things we would have never thought of, and all within our price range! He really did take a lot of the “roller-coaster” out of the journey and enabled my family and I to experience more of the joy and excitement that should be part of buying a new home. For that, I can’t thank Thomas enough.
Jim Tyson & Michael Perona I can’t say enough positive things about our experience working with Thomas. He helped us every step of the way in attaining our new dream home and sold our current home in less than a week, with multiple offers over the asking price! Pretty rare in this market! He’s setting the new gold standard for Marin when it comes to service, execution, and expertise.
Matthew and Carol McCormick We believe Thomas was the reason we found and were able to purchase the perfect, new home for our family, and he was also the reason we received top dollar selling our existing home. He was incredibly diligent on both the buying and selling side and we truly appreciate his guidance through the bureaucratic process that goes along with real estate sales. His ability to attend to both my wife’s and my concerns was invaluable!
Rich and Melanie Weiss We first met Thomas two years ago when he sold the neighbor’s house in a week for significantly more than it had previously been listed for during the prior 12+ month period. Thomas is the essence of professionalism and resourcefulness with an extraordinary vision pertaining to staging and preparing a house for sale. Thomas negotiated our way through 5 solid offers in less than a week after listing, resulting in a sale for significantly over the asking price. As a former Realtor, (now retired) I recognized and appreciated his successful traits and extraordinary effort, he is market knowledgeable, real estate and social media savvy, detail oriented and a pleasure to work with.
