My “client first" philosophy has always been my approach and it requires me to continually improve my skills and develop new ways of doing business.  In addition, I have found that the latest technologies enable me to do everything I've always done, only much more quickly and efficiently. They've also helped me to extend the range of services I provide to my clients. I really enjoy my field and the contacts I have made in my 22  years of service.  Not only do I have training and experience in the existing home buyer, selling my clients homes, I also have 14 years experience in New Construction.

That said, in my experience as a Real Estate Professional, I've found that providing the very best service is essentially about "Putting my clients first". This means keeping myself accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator, and responding quickly to the client’s needs.

"Very good experience. House sold quickly. Having an experienced realtor is essential. Tom ensured that as a first time seller, I was informed of the entire process, and how to get my house ready to sell." mjcookrn38 5201 S Bristolwood Ln, Lincoln, NE 68516

Tom was very responsive and helpful while helping us search for our first home. Whenever we wanted to view a listing he set it up right away. When we found the right place he walked us through the process and got us a great deal.

We relocated from Texas to Omaha for a position with a local employer. My employer had Tom give myself a tour of the area during the recruiting trip. Tom also went above and beyond by taking my wife and mother in law on a separate tour. Tom did an excellent job representing Omaha and the surrounding areas. His knowledge and advice was very valuable in making our decision to come to Omaha. We had several false starts while house hunting and Tom expertly navigated us through the process. When we did find a home, Tom was with us every step of the way through closing. He also provided excellent advice after closing on local providers for services we needed. I would recommend using Tom and will be using him again in the future when I need a realtor

Tom was very responsive to our needs in purchasing a home in the area in which we wanted to live. He helped us sell our existing home, too. He is very knowledgeable about the market and the trends in the area.

Tom helped sale my house in a down market. Even before I listed he came over and helped with ways to make house sell ready. Awesome listing including video tour.

I was a first time home buyer and had little knowledge regarding real estate. Tom was very helpful in making sure that I understood everything and that he was getting me into a house that was perfect for my family. He did a great job negotiating a deal on the home that I purchased and made sure everything that needed to be repaired was taken care of. Since I bought my house a little over a year ago he has continuously checked in to make sure everything is going okay with the house

"Tom is an absolute professional that you can fully trust to sell your home or find your home. His communication is always timely, he understands the market and what it takes to sell your home. Additionally, he goes the extra distance to make the selling an easier experience for your family and that can make all the difference in the world during a stressful situation. Tom has found us a home and sold two of our homes. The total sales periods combined were less than a week total! He is like family and we'll always look forward to working with him for our real estate needs." Craig Lee, formerly Papillion, NE (Seller)

My name is Betty T. and Tom Smith sold my home in northwest Omaha two years ago. Tom, an agent for NP Dodge, made some very helpful recommendations that I followed through with and my home was sold. I learned that I had cancer just as I sold my home. Tom has been very caring and supportive during my treatment and recovery with phone calls and even taking me to lunch. I have recommended Tom to several friends who expressed a need for a real estate agent to sell their home. I believe Tom Smith would be excellent for any position he seeks.

- Betty T.


We greatly appreciate that amazing level of support you provided. Thank you for making it so easy and spending so much time with us. We love our new home! Without your help our first home wouldn't have been possible!

Tom is an entergentic and committed agent who will listen to you, work to meet your needs and follow-up on the little things that make a big difference. Recommend him with no reservations.

I highly recommend Tom Smith. As a semi-retired mortgage loan officer of 30 some years, I have worked with Tom on many of his transactions and found him to be extremely professional and a Realtor that works diligently for his clients' best interests.

- Chuck Holsapple


"Tom Smith served as our realtor for both selling and purchasing a new home in 2014. The recommendations that Tom put forth with respect to preparing our home for sale and establishing a selling price garnered us an additional $25K on the actual selling price as compared to the suggested starting price and recommended upgrades set forth by another realtor at the same company! In purchasing our new home Tom, coordinated with the builder to execute finishing the walkout basement to our customized specifications, Tom’s professionalism, attention to detail and responsiveness was evident throughout the entire home buying process. Tom’s realtor skills come with our highest recommendations."

- Brad & Stacey Hunsley


As retirees, we decided to downsize. Tom helped us stage our home, set a fair price and sold it much quicker than we anticipated. His experience showed in every aspect of our transition. He kept us on track and belayed our anxiety due to one home sold and the new home yet to be found. He negotiated hard on our choice for the new home and easily kept several balls in the air through the tightly timed closing process on both homes. Tom is truly hard working, experienced and loyal to his customers and we heartily recommend his services.

Kat and I really appreciate everything you have done to help us chose such a wonderful house. We love our house and this has made our transition from Colorado to Nebraska a whole lot easier. We cannot say enough good things about our experience in working with you. You definitely went above and beyond our expectations. Tom Smith has far exceeded our expectations for a Real estate agent. Not only did he listen to our wants and needs but he took the initiative to make suggestions on what we should look for in a home that would add value. Tom didn’t pressure us into the high end of our budget, as a matter of fact, he found the house we were looking for at a price that was under budget! He was very knowledgeable on not only locations best suited for our family but also on the local construction industry. He kept in touch with us throughout the whole ordeal and was very candid and honest. He gave us pointers on how to acclimate not only to Omaha but also our children to the schools. Even after our close date, he called a week later to make sure we got settled in okay. Tom didn’t just find and sell us a house; he became a friend of the family. Patrick C

I relocated for a job opportunity in Omaha in 2009. Tom Smith came highly recommended as my agent and he lived up to the recommendation. He took the time to understand my family's needs, what type of home, area and living environment that would make the family happy. He also took the time to familiarize us with Omaha, recreational areas (that applied to our interests) and helped us to get to know how to get around the city. Beyond all this Tom went above and beyond when it came to inspections and closing. As a matter of fact when we went to close on our now home, due to a misunderstanding in the closing paperwork we almost did not close that day and would have had to reset a time for both us and the sellers. Tom took the bull by the horns and we drove 2 hours to St. Joseph to meet my wife who drove up from Kansas City, found a notary public and closed on our house deal.. You can't ask for more.. R. Richardson

Tom was great to work with when my family and I were purchasing a new house as part of relocating to Omaha. He accommodated our schedule when we were flying in repeatedly to see houses over a period of a couple of months. Was always a strong advocate looking out for us and pointing out things that we might have missed. A keen eye, a great talent for discerning what the right house is, very easygoing and helpful with things beyond just the real estate (for example, he suggested multiple places to take my 8 year old son that were great). I can highly recommend Tom and will use him in the future if I have need of any real estate services. Hope that works for you. Please feel free to edit grammar as needed. Thanks Ryan

"Thank you for going above and beyond our expectations." Tom has sold or bought three homes for us. Thank You for all you do!!!

Thank you for helping us find our dream home! Jeff and I felt that you exceeded our expectations. We were anxious about relocating from South Carolina but we found you to be an excellent real estate agent and very knowledgeable about the Omaha market. We appreciated how efficient you were in lining up showings as we only had a short amount of time to search for a home. Once we found the home we liked, we were very comfortable with the buying process as you always walked us through every step, kept us in the loop, and worked hard to negotiate the best possible price. We really felt you had our best interest at heart and we could not be happier with the outcome. We would highly recommend you to anyone selling or purchasing a home. Thanks again for all your efforts.
