"As a first time buyer the whole process of purchasing a home was completely new to me, and a little daunting to say the least! I was referred to Tom and his team via a recommendation, and couldn't have been happier with my choice to work with them. I received very prompt, friendly, and efficient assistance from Victoria, and from the first meeting with Tom I felt reassured, and excited about starting out on this adventure of finding myself a home.
Tom listened and understood what I wanted, and even if I wasn't sure, through conversation and shared ideas we gained clarity. Both Tom and his team guided me through the whole process, from scheduling viewings, discussing positives and potential issues with places, making an offer, through to completion. They were also very obliging when it came to answering my many questions!
It sets a superb standard when you work with people who clearly love what they do, and I felt as though I was in good hands.
A huge THANK YOU for all of your exceptional help, knowledge, and support. I am over the moon happy in my new home.
I highly recommend Tom Devlin for anyone looking to purchase a home.
We Would Heartily Recommend Tom To Anyone
When my wife and I decided to put our house on the market in January, 2016, we were a bit apprehensive of what to expect.
Tom came over, made an assessment of value, which seemed fair, accurate and most importantly, thorough and stress free.
We had an enormous amount of interest and we sold very quickly and well over the asking price. We then wanted Tom’s experience and help in purchasing our new residence and he wasinvaluable in pointing out potential problems that we never would have spotted on our own.
We were very pleased with Tom and his team during this whole process. We have made the transition from sale to purchase in a seamless manner due to Tom’s attention to detail and his ability to make us feel that we were his only client.
Buying, selling and moving can be potential major stress factors. It was made a lot less stressful by our realtor, Tom Devlin, who actually spent the time and showed the interest to his clients concerns.
My wife and I would heartily recommend Tom to anyone who is looking for a realtor that actually cares about his clients and the issues that cause problems during the home selling process.

We Would Definitely Recommend The Devlin Group
The Devlin Group were recommended to us by a friend. We wished to sell our house in Maple Ridge and move to Clayton Heights.
When we met Tom, he quickly ascertained what we were looking for and he explained all the services he and his assistant, Anna, offered. The team found us a house exactly what we were looking for at a price we could afford.
Tom guided us through the purchase and subsequently the sale of our home. Throughout Tom and and Anna maintained a friendly, professional relationship and Anna kept us informed of progress along the way. She was always willing to answer questions and did so quickly.
We would definitely recommend The Devlin Group and would not hesitate to use them again.

We Would Absolutely Recommend Tom
Tom was a tremendous resource and support to our family when selling our house in Clayton Heights and purchasing a new one in Langley.
He is a skilled Realtor, who is genuine and honest. He was readily available to address all our questions/concerns and had an excellent knowledge of the current housing market when assessing the value of our house and the houses we were viewing.
He provided invaluable feedback on how to prepare our house for sale and determining a solid listing price, resulting in a full asking offer being made after the very first showing.
He made what is notably a stressful process a seamless transition, resulting in finding the perfect house for our family at a fair market value.
Tom was Responsive, Direct and Realistic
We wish to express our sincere gratitude to Tom for the excellent marketing and show casing of our home which resulted in the sale at 99.5% of asking. Tom was responsive, direct and realistic in his approach to marketing the home.
He took the approach of a Cadillac SRX in one driveway with a value of 57,000 and a Porsche 911 turbo in the next with a value of 150,000.
You don't sell them for the same just because they are on the same street. He adjusted for value added items within and outside the home which drove it's valuable higher than other houses on the same street.

We Wholeheartedly Recommend Tom
Tom was introduced to us by a friend after meeting with him, we decided his experience, expertise in our specific market, realistic price range expectations, and well thought out marketing strategies made Tom an excellent choice for us.
Tom was very proactive throughout the listing period keeping us fully apprised of developments, challenges and opportunities in real time.
We felt that we were in good hands and being well looked after from signing the listing agreement right through completion.
We are extremely appreciative of Tom’s efforts, his guidance through the myriad of unforeseen issues that seem to pop up, his professionalism and good humor.
We wholeheartedly recommend Tom as an excellent choice among realtors.

Tom and Miriam were professional and dedicated in all aspects of selling out home (Hillcrest area) and purchasing our new house. When we were faced with the fact that no house was on the market in our chosen neighborhood, Tom and Miriam went above and beyond by knocking on doors and advising us the moment a house became available. They didn’t stop until we had found a house that met all of our needs, and was in the perfect location. We couldn’t be happier!! Their patience and commitment throughout the search made our real estate experience a positive one. Their intimate knowledge of the area was a considerable asset, and we appreciated their many suggestions along the way. As well as their hard work. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Tom and Miriam to anyone looking for dedicated, hard-working and knowledgeable realtors in this area.

When my wife and I started looking for a realtor, we didn’t know where to start. Being relatively “green” to the real estate market, we thought all we required was a realtor who would help facilitate the sale and purchase of a home. What we received through Tom was so much more tangible. Along with meeting out basic requirements, Tom provided us with candid, intellectual, and timely feedback indicative of a realtor who had a vested interest in developing relationships, not just sales. The hands on approach that we received from Tom and his team allowed us to walk away from this experience with the confidence that this outcome was the best of our family. Thank you Tom, for your dedication and support. We definitely recommend Tom if you are pondering entering the real estate market.

My husband and I contacted a few real estate agents before meeting Tom. This was our first time buying a house; it was very intimidating and we really did not know a lot about the market. Meeting Tom was a complete blessing, since it was such a hot market, every realtor barely made time for us, but not Tom. The day I emailed Tom, I received a phone call and when we met, he went out of his way to make us feel comfortable, to learn what we liked and to work hard to get what we wanted. The entire experience was better than any other realtor we came across and within a few months, we found the most perfect house. He never rushed us and he even told us the truth if he felt a house was not a quality home. Tom Devlin is honest, genuine, warm and well-educated in the real estate market. I am so thankful we went with him and will be using him in the future, for sure!

We thoroughly enjoyed working with realtor Tom Devlin. He is smart and personable, and worked hard to sell our house, and to find us a new home. He made himself available whenever there was a request to show our house to buyers, as well as to show us houses to buy. He offered us his experience and expertise in the real estate business and helped us make informed decisions.
Tom listens to what his clients want, and delivers. The team of qualified professionals that he has assembled make the buying and selling process seamless. This is why Tom is quickly on his way to becoming the number one realtor in Cloverdale!
Over the course of our lives, we have had the opportunity to meet and work with many realtors. The facts speak for themselves. Tom listed our home on September 1st, 2015 and sold it within 4 days, and the sale had no subjects and included an all cash offer!
At the end of the day, the results are all that really matter and we can attest that he certainly exceeded our expectations.
For those reading this testimonial, we recommend you put your trust in Tom's judgement in order to benefit from what we believe will be the best possible outcome. Tom does not have a crystal ball, however he will be realistic, honest and fight for the best possible outcome on your behalf. You must, as the seller, be prepared to listen to his advise, declutter and do you part to prepare your home for sale.
Special thanks are in order to Anna Robinson whose professional, calm and caring diposition behind the scenes helped make this journey a pleasureable one.
