Exceptional agent! Tom's ability to truly understand the Seller and align to their goals set's Tom apart from the rest. He is very flexible, professional and always available to the customer. The additional services he provides as a part of his core offering is a value add. Anyone partnering with Tom has an advantage in the market.
Based on a friend's recommendation, I chose Tom to help me sell and buy a home (at the same time). As you can imagine this was a very stressful time, especially since the market resulted in me selling my home before I had actually purchased my new place. During all the critical decision points, Tom was excellent at providing me with my options, the pros and cons of each option and then working hard to make sure my decision was successful. He worked hard to make sure I got the best price for the sale of my home and had a list of great contractors to help with a hot water replacement and roof replacement. Once we started focusing on what I wanted in my new home, Tom listened to my desires and immediately helped me focus in on what I was looking for. Due to his connections in the community, we actually found the perfect new home for me before it even went on the market. After the dust has settled, I would (and have) recommended Tom to friends and family for the sale and purchase of their next home.
Tom Cohen recently helped us buy a home and sell ours in Boulder. With his guidance and personalized web-based updates we quickly found the perfect house for us and were the winning bid with multiple offers on the table. He was thorough and timely in managing all the contractual details and attentive to time sensitive steps in both transactions. We were impressed with his realistic explanation of all of our options at every turn and his unwavering advocacy for our interests. We benefited from his knowledge in a highly competitive, quickly evolving market.
His marketing strategy resulted in our home selling for more than asking price in less than two weeks. All of the professionals he recommended including the inspector, stager, plumber and roofing company responded quickly and did excellent work. His unflappable, friendly demeanor decreased our stress during the negotiations and he kept in constant contact every step of the way. He always listened to our concerns. We wholeheartedly recommend Tom Cohen to anyone seeking a local realtor with extensive experience and great connections. He's a true pro!
It was a pleasure working with Tom as our realtor! His expert knowledge of the area allowed us to hone in on exactly where we wanted to settle, and his demonstrated real estate and negotiation skills along with his personal guidance made us feel safe and secure to focus on the aspects of home buying that we already knew well. For the duration of our home buying experience, Tom made us feel like we were his only client when in fact he had several. Seemingly always available for showings, tours, and discussions, Tom never failed to be by our side when we needed him and always stayed in constant contact with us through all phases of locating and buying a new home and even after!. We highly recommend Tom as your realtor for either buying or selling a home.

Once in a great while we make decisions that are not only right but are ultimately extremely important. Such was the case when we chose you to advocate (the perfect term!) for us in the sale of our house. Not only are you an expert in Real Estate, the market and our neighborhood, but you easily communicate with all types of people and personalities. We loved working with you and you calmly got us through the bumps in the road. When the Flood came, it looked like "Mission Impossible", but you pulled everything together and got the job done with grace and integrity.

Tom was so great to work with! As first time home buyers, we had a lot to learn. Tom was patient, informative, and flexible as we navigated the crazy real estate market that is the Colorado Front Range. We love our new home, and can't thank Tom enough for helping us through this overwhelming, yet exciting process. We hope to work with him again someday!
I utilized Tom on a somewhat messy sale. He was creative, attentive to detail, and worked with us to make a potentially difficult situation easier. Tom is knowledgeable of the Boulder real estate market, and his responsiveness was notable, even responding at the expense of his vacation time! I highly recommend Tom for any real estate transaction!
We worked with Tom this past summer as we relocated to the Denver Metro. Tom quickly helped us narrow our search and identify great properties in a fast moving market. His ability to listen to our needs and expertise with the marketplace greatly simplified our search process.
Tom is very focused on taking care of his clients. He worked around the clock to support our decision making process, rapidly addressing any questions we had. He is very organized and attentive to detail. This simplified the negotiation and purchase process and ultimately allowed us to get the right property at the right price. I would not hesitate in recommending Tom to anyone.
This is the second time that I have worked with Tom. Several years ago he helped me purchase my first property in Boulder. I knew nothing about the process or what kind of place I really wanted to buy. He helped me navigate world the Real Estate and made great recommendations along the way so I ended up with a townhouse that fit my needs perfectly. This time my wife and I came to Tom with a huge list of requirements and a very specific ideas for the new house. We thought it might be impossible at first to find what we were looking for. Tom was patient and drove us all over the mountains west of Boulder looking at a dozen different properties. We found the ideal spot and closed the deal within four months of starting the search. Fantastic! One of the things I've enjoyed most about working with Tom is his straight forward, honest approach. I wouldn't work with anyone else in Boulder!
I recently sold a house with Tom as my real estate agent and I would highly recommend him. He is smart and friendly and very good at what he does. I think what I liked best is that anytime I called with questions or thoughts he would respond immediately. He simplified all the confusing steps leading up to the sale and closing which really made the process easy for me. It was a pleasure to work with Tom and I will certainly use him again when I next move.
My wife Sally and I really enjoyed working with Tom on the sale of our home and the purchase of a new home. Tom really did a great job representing our interests. He was very proactive and repeatedly proved to us that he really understands the Boulder real estate market and how to get deals done. I really appreciated how Tom handled all of the details.
He is very thorough and conscientious. Tom is also a very caring and sensitive person. He was there to hold our hands during some of the tense moments. I would recommend Tom to others without reservation.
PS- I would like to offer an additional comment to the compliments my husband gave in his referral letter about Tom Cohen. Beyond all the positives he described, Tom has a wonderful sense of humor that brings much-needed levity into the process of home-selling and home-buying (which, as you know, can be quite stressful). I honestly think his humor saved us and made our experience a sane one!
Thanks so much for all your hard work and effort that resulted in selling my townhouse for the right price, at the right time, in a slow and unpredictable market. Your suggestions, 6 months prior to listing, for re-modeling and upgrading in order to sell quickly and for top dollar were right on target. Referring a reliable contractor who met my time line was another tremendous benefit. Touring the neighborhood to check out the competition really helped me to understand what was necessary to make the best impression on the perspective buyers. By providing a pre-inspection consultation, I was able to anticipate problems and make the necessary repairs. I really appreciated your daily calls and weekly marketing reports. Your marketing efforts were highly successful and your negotiating skills enabled us to stay in our home with a lease-back until our new home is completed. We could not be happier. In short, you are my favorite realtor, as well as my trusted advisor.
Thanks so much for creating an experience that exceeded my expectations on every level.
Tom was fantastic during our house hunt! We relocated and were looking under a time crunch and being new to the area it could have turned into a very stressful experience, but thanks to Tom it was a great one. He is very knowledgeable, professional and always goes the extra mile for his clients. He was always available when we needed him and he answered all our questions (many before we asked). He was also always available when we needed him and made time to show us a few houses later in the day because of our schedule and how quickly homes go in this area. We appreciated having him on our side through the entire process and wouldn't hesitate to refer him to our friends and family.
Tom helped my husband and I with the sale of two homes when we moved to California in 2009 and then when we purchased our new home when we moved back to Colorado last month. For all transactions he was always available, proactive, listened to our needs and guided us through the murky waters of what can often be cumbersome tasks associated with selling or buying a home. Tom always remained professional yet kept a friendly demeanor about him. When we ran into a snag at the closing of our recent purchase, Tom proposed a solution to keep us happy and content. I would highly recommend his services as he will go above and beyond for his clients.
My husband and I came to Tom about 5 years ago, trying to decide if buying a rental property made sense. Tom took us through the pros and cons of that idea, and didn't push us into a decision -- just gave us the information we needed for us to make a good decision. We didn't do it at that time, but decided we were ready about 5 months ago, and turned to Tom once again. He helped us through the process (in a sellers market), and we ended up with a property that we are very happy we purchased. He will provide you with the pros and cons of different decisions, using his experience and expertise to provide excellent input. I highly recommend Tom!
Tom is awesome! This was our first home purchase and it was I dare say, a pleasurable experience. I'd heard that buying a home can be one of the most stressful experiences in your life but Tom's attention to detail and over the top customer service made our experience buying our first home an enjoyable one.
There were times where Tom would catch either my wife or I with that confused or glazed over look on our faces and he would stop everything and make sure we were absolutely clear on what was going on. You can tell he really enjoys what he does and he takes genuine pride in your happiness. He was never pushy, always helpful and really just a fun guy to work with. I would hands down recommend him to friends and family and hope to buy future homes with him myself.
Relocation from out-of-state is a difficult transition- Tom Cohen guided us through each phase: from finding a temporary residence-to-explaining Real Estate market/neighborhood with real-time information on homes on the market- to home buying & closing. Tom's ability to understand our requirements and his technique to narrow down potential home buying opportunities within Boulder County is impressive. He is very thorough and methodical, always ready to show us the properties we identified- although some he knew were not suitable for us. With Tom's help, we were able to find a great property and shorten entire relocation process. It was a pleasure to work with him and we highly recommend Re/Max Boulder.

I have met Tom through local circles, and I can say that I am glad I met him. I was a first time home buyer, my wife and I had lots of doubts and questions regarding the process, not to mention that we did not have a time to make an online search for all those answers. Therefore, Tom helped us a lot with all uncertainties we had, and he was available pretty much 24/7 for all our questions. He is very experienced, has an answer for everything, but also very well connected locally, so he could suggest us homeowner's insurance, mortgage broker, house inspection and survey service, etc. Thanks to Tom we live in house we love, here in Boulder.
As we bring closure to the search for a home in the Boulder area, I want to extend my sincere thanks to you and your team of professionals that have partnered with us over the past 15-months.
It seems not that long ago when you and I met in January 2009 and we commenced the search. We sought out a rental property, identified schools in the larger area that would be a best fit for my children repatriating from Singapore, and settled other reintegration details, all with your partnership. In summer, the second search for a home that would meet our family's educational, community and commute needs commenced.
Your knowledge about the Boulder real estate market, the overall best value for the money relative to Boulder, and where you believe our best bet was identified early in the process. But your patience with Joe and I persisted as we searched the larger area and educated ourselves eventually leading back to your original thinking on a best fit home for our family. We also appreciated your partnering with the third party that my employer identified to insure all compulsory items were met while also meeting the needs of the family.
As we close, we want to thank you for your knowledge, your ability to execute quickly, retain flexibility, associate with the right real estate parties, and close seamlessly. No doubt, we will rely on you for any future real estate transactions in the Boulder or larger Colorado area.
We recently used Tom Cohen to help us find and purchase a home in Superior. In the 9 months leading up to our move, Tom kept us informed via email, web postings and phone calls so that we would be well prepared upon our arrival in Boulder. Tom really listens to what the buyer wants and then takes you to the homes that fit your specifications. The whole process was made easy because Tom understood the marketplace and the buying process. He is professional and always available and willing to go the extra distance to make sure you get the home you are looking for.
