I'm glad you asked us to write something about you because we're very eager to sing your praises. You took such good care of us throughout the entire home buying process and we can't thank you enough.
Tom is an exceptional Realtor in every aspect, from his customer service to his expertise. He was responsive to our every request, attended every meeting with us and gave us confidence throughout the entire home search, building and buying process. His background also allowed him to help us understand the construction details. He negotiated on our behalf and we couldn't have been more pleased with the outcome. Having worked with other Realtors before we met Tom, we know he's far above most of them in terms of expertise and customer service. We highly recommend Tom whether you are buying or selling a home.

Just a few words to tell you what a tremendous help you've been to us in our relocation to Tampa. The preparation that you did behind the scenes reflected your ability to really listen and get a feel for what we were looking for. You were able to zero in on areas and houses that were appropriate within the parameters we specified, both financially and geographically. We had only two days to spend in Tampa, and, during that time, you really maximized the whole house hunting experience without wasting our time. You gave us an extensive education about the area, pointing out places of interest to us--restaurants, furniture stores, beaches, Tarpon Springs, Clearwater--by the time we left, we had fallen in love with the city as well as the house.
When we went to closing, we were a little concerned about all of the details we had to address. To our surprise, there were no snafus at all! The closing went as smooth as silk.
After the transaction was complete, you were still interested in helping us to get situated and your willingness to do the things that we were unable to do for ourselves (such as letting the mattress delivery guys in, and being there to accept the FedEx items we needed to ship) really set you apart from any realtor we've ever known or even HEARD of before.
We would highly recommend you to anyone as an expert realtor and relocation specialist, and commend you for your tireless commitment to excellence, and your unusual ability to communicate honestly and effectively. Thank you. We love our new house. Sincerely,
--Linda and John Link
Here it is:
Anyone who is either moving or looking for a home to buy in Tampa Bay area, I recommend that they should visit Tom's website (RealEstateTom.com) and get in contact with him immediately. His web site is full of information about the area, comprehensive search engine for listing, and a lot educational help. Tom is not only a good friend but he was also my realtor when I bought a house in Tampa. He is honest, very professional, and very thorough. Tom helped us buy a home and some year’s latter sell that home. You are in good hand with Tom.
--Dr. Bill Packing
When I was shopping for a house, I had other Realtors® say, “Don’t tell me anything that you don't want the seller to know because I represent the transaction.” That was pure baloney.
Pick a side! If an agent is a professional, it doesn't matter which side they take. Any agent that says he or she 'represents the transaction' is 100% interchangeable with any other agent that says the same thing. These 'transaction brokers' are overpaid clerks. They are representing only themselves, and in my opinion do a disservice to both the buyer and the seller.
I was looking for an agent who represents me, and I found him in Tom Scaglione. Tom is a Professional Realtor® and will take a side, either side, and he will see that his Client's interests are protected and well served. --Rick Jaggers
After an extended settle in period, I have finally had the chance to step back, take a breather, and express my thanks to you for the fantastic service I received from you as a buyer's broker. My wife and I appreciated your advice, assistance, and concern immensely. We would like to commend you for your outstanding performance is assisting us in finding and closing on a home in a period of less than a month. Few people in your industry, I would imagine, could equal that feat. When the time comes for us to purchase our next home, you can expect more business from us. Again, thank you for your assistance, effort, and care in finding our new home.

I worked with Tom on the Board of Directors (BOD) at Mid-Florida Regional Multiple Listing Services (MFRMLS). MFRMLS has 30,000 members and was a big responsibility for the BOD. I followed Tom as an elected Treasure then to President Elect to President then finally to the Past President position. In the six years I have worked with Tom I found him to be a solid leader, extremely intelligent in the world of real estate and a person that I looked up to for guidance and leadership as I worked my way through the leadership positions. Tom has a great background for what he does and on top of all that he is an excellent teacher of different software tools Realtors need and use in their everyday business. You can surely tell Tom comes with my highest compliments and recommendations.

I am currently working with Tom on my second home purchase. Tom has historically advised me towards great properties while steering me away from problematic investments.

As a home inspector I have worked with Tom for over 15 years. In that time, I have witnessed nothing but pure professionalism in his relationships both with his customers and with our company. As a general contractor and a Realtor, Tom offers a unique and useful insight regarding the structural aspects of home construction and sales which is especially useful during the home inspection process. We look forward to many more years of business relations with Tom.

--Ed Hammond --Owner / President at Ed Hammond, Inc.
I have known Tom over nearly 20 years and have worked with him as a Realtor and as an appraiser. During that time, I have sought his advice numerous times on a wide range of matters regarding real estate. His advice and perspectives have always been excellent. His knowledge is wide ranging and he always takes time to help. I think the thing I like best about Tom is he always treats your call/question as very important. If he is busy at the moment, he'll always return the call to make sure your question is answered fully. He is genuinely a (smart) "nice guy" who you can depend on.
