Thomas's Reviews

4.9 Stars - 110 Reviews
"We had lots of challenges with a home purchase from 800 miles away in the middle of a job change with tight timing windows. Mr Draper and all the staff at First Home worked hard, communicated well and got the job done - not quite on target with all the timing issues, but close. I am not sure anyone else could have done better. Everyone was very professional and courteous regardless of how stressful things happened to be at the moment."

"Thomas, Tom, was very easy to work with. He is a professional with clear knowledge and is able to effectively share that knowledge with you every step of the way. I would say he went above and beyond to make my home buying experience enjoyable. He would provide calls every few days to check in on things and see how the house hunting was going and if I had any questions. I had an absolute terrible experience with Wells Fargo with my last home purchase. I couldn't have imagined it would go as smoothly as it did but as I said Tom is a total professional and working with him was extremely easy and the best decision I ever made. I 100% would recommend Tom and his team if your looking to purchase a home."
