“We had a signed contract for our house in 5 days. Tom provided excellent advice on the best way to present our home and had a very talented photographer. This combination gave us a very appealing on line presence and marketing materials. Tom was quick to respond to any and all contact and kept us updated on all activity. Our relationship was short and sweet. I would highly recommend Tom, he was easy to work with, has great advice, recommendations for others (lawyer, painter...) and most importantly, sold our house.“ Karen S., Tom sold her home in Western Springs

“Tom Baker sold my house in 10 days! Prior to listing with Tom, it had been on the market for 6 months with a realtor from another company. Tom's marketing plan was awesome and he gets the job done! He is also very knowledgeable, professional and helpful. I you're thinking about buying or selling a house, I highly recommend Tom Baker of Coldwell Banker in La Grange. “ Cristi H, Tom sold her home in Western Springs

“We feel blessed to have had Tom supporting us through our first house purchase. From our very first meeting he was
great to work with! He has lived in the western suburbs for years and has kids in the school district. Tom was easy to get ahold of and always quick to return our voicemails. If he didn’t know the answer to our question he was not afraid to say so and always got back to us in a timely manner. He has lots of great contacts who have helped us with home projects. Working with Tom was a great experience, we recommend him to you and our friends. Katie S., Tom helped her and her husband find a home in La Grange.
