Our experience in dealing with Tom Holmes of Berkshire Hathaway CA. Properties, has been nothing but outstanding.When our daughter, who has been renting at Aloft Cortez Hill, for the past year and half, informed us that she wanted to purchase a unit, we contacted Tom for assistance.
From the outset, he went out of his way to explain the process and accommodated us by coming over to that very same evening. He continued to prove to be reliable by always promptly returning phone calls, texts and emails. He’s as good as his word - whatever he promised was done promptly.
Tom is most professional and knowledgeable. He also recommended loan experts who could assist us navigating that process. He was extremely helpful to our daughter by making sure that her transition during her move would be the least disruptive possible for her. We recommend him highly whether you are the purchaser or the seller. - Albert Ray, M.D. & Cheryl Ray

It was absolutely a pleasure working with Tom. He clearly went above and beyond: not only did he make my first home buying experience seamless, easy and relatively hassle free, he also facilitated my finding a lender. Notably, I also was on the East Coast for most of my purchase. He responded via email, text and phone to all my questions in a professional and prompt manner. After hearing about my preferences, I flew out for a very quick 1 day visit to see properties. He showed me so many places in just a few hours that were perfect I had a difficult time deciding—though I never felt rushed or pressured. He was extremely knowledgeable about all neighborhoods in Downtown and was forward with the good things but also frank about certain drawbacks (i.e. one building he mentioned he knew was a little loud at night). I cannot recommend Tom more! -Ryan Moran

My wife and I were looking for a downtown condo and to that end we enlisted the aid of Realtor Tom Holmes to show us a unit in the Aloft building in the Cortez Hill neighborhood. After viewing many other properties downtown we really liked the Aloft property the best and asked for a second viewing, then made an offer, working through Tom for the process. Throughout the process Tom worked diligently to get the deal through. He was responsive and communicative, providing prompt updates and negotiations and really went the extra mile for us, working with all parties and around our busy schedules. I highly recommend him. - Jim Jones

Working together with Tom to help my clients find their perfect home was quite an experience. Right from the beginning, Tom was helpful, kind and organized. My clients already owned one unit, a studio, in aloft and started looking for a bigger home to upgrade to. We looked at houses in the beach areas of San Diego for a few months but no place they saw compared to their current home. Units in aloft were starting to become available so they decided to upgrade into a larger home in the complex. Once this decision was made Tom came into the picture and we were in escrow within 3 weeks. We explained to Tom what my clients were hoping to find in their new unit and Tom worked with us till one they liked became available. Once escrow was opened Tom, Janet (the lender Tom referred us to) and myself worked as a team and had one of the smoothest escrows I have ever experienced. Thank you Tom for the great experience and escrow but mainly for helping ensure the happiness of both our clients! Simone Abelsohn, Realtor, Real.Reliable.Results

I just closed a transaction with Tom at aloft and had a pleasant experience! Great communication and a smooth transaction. Thanks to Dan Kitchen with Navy Federal and Tom Holmes, I was able to get my buyer into a condo at aloft in less than 30 days! The transaction was smooth and flawless. Looking forward to doing business together again soon.
