And Other Client Endorsements

“Selling Property for another Realtor is Tough! Tom Ward and his team went above and beyond! Tom was knowledgeable, available, very easy to work with and had my best interest at the forefront. His team provided exceptional service. Every phone call was returned in a timely manner, he gave me excellent advice before, during and even after the closing. Best of all, I received more than the appraisal value of the property! It is amazing how a real estate Broker forgets everything they teach when they are selling their own property. I would recommend Tom and his Team to everyone. Very knowledgeable and caring professional. – Jane Araguel, Broker Associate, RE/MAX Coastal Properties, Destin, Fl.

Lisa and I have moved close to a dozen times and we can say without hesitation that Tom Ward has exhibited the highest level of expertise of any real estate agent we have ever worked with. He has truly set the standard for all the other real estate agents…” – Mark and Lisa Keim

“It was great working with Tom on the sale of our home.  If Linked-In allowed me to choose more than three attributes for Tom, I would also choose “personable,” “expert,” and “creative.” At every step, he anticipated our needs, listened to our ideas, and attended to details. He had creative ideas for marketing and covered all the bases. I recommend Tom without reservation and wish we could have brought him to our new location to help us find our next home!” Top qualities: Great Results, On Time, High Integrity Karen Murray, Park City

“We considered ourselves very lucky to have sold our condo recently in ten days. However luck had nothing to do with it; our good fortune was your agent Mr. Tom Ward who gave us realistic, conservative advice for marketing the property. His competent air put us at ease immediately. Probably the reason the West was won!” Bruce and Rosemarie K.

“We have been involved in the purchase and selling of real estate over the past 25 years. Our experiences never included the willingness of an agent to aid his client to the degree that Tom demonstrated for us.”Thomas and Kathleen Phillips, Park City

“You are an awesome Realtor, Tom…truly.  I can’t thank you enough for the feedback you give us and for always keeping us informed.”  – Terra Crews, Midway, Feb. 16, 2016

“After an unsatisfactory listing experience w/ another Realtor Tom came to us from two distinct groups of friends who recommended him. He is well respected in the community & has a wide professional network. Tom sold our home of 20 years with tremendous skill and attention to detail. He was an excellent “closer” and worked through a difficult deal. Tom was always available, very personable and instilled confidence in both ourselves as sellers and the out of state buyer. Layla Ward created a beautiful website and house fliers to publicize our home. That brought in the buyer. We have and will continue to recommend Tom and Layla Ward to others.”
George and Melinda Milne, January 17, 2016

“I had been trying to sell a property in Summit County for years. It had a few issues that made it difficult to sell, but Tom resolved them, knew exactly how to market the property, and had the right  touch with potential buyers. Whereas other Realtors packed it in for the winter, deep snow didn’t bother Tom. He has been professional and realistic throughout the process, and I never doubted his integrity or work ethic…my faith in him was well rewarded.” – George Metos, SLC, Jan. 2, 2016

“If you want a five-star Realtor call Tom Ward!”  ***** –Juan Payan, Heber, UT, October 1, 2015

“Tom came highly recommended to me, and for the purchase of my first home, I could not have asked for better. From helping me to refine my search to following up even after the closing, he has been reliable, trustworthy, and gone far beyond what I ever expected in a purchasing agent.  Not only his knowledge, but also his personable nature helped me to consider him a friend helping me through the whole process. My family and I have already been recommending him to others. He has definitely set the bar high. I am so grateful for all that he has done for me.” Katherine H., KS, Sept. 28, 2015

“Tom was a pleasure to work with! He was on top of things every step of the way, from helping us price the property all the way through to closing. Tom took care of every detail with just the right amount of prompting to keep the deal moving forward. I would definitely recommend him to any of our friends looking to buy or sell a house.”  Randy Thornton, Draper, UT, September. 25, 2015 

“This was my 1st home purchase, so I was nervous about finding a realtor on whom I could depend. I’ve known Tom since 1986, and he was as tenacious as could be.  He kept after the details, making sure nothing slipped through the cracks.  I’ve always promoted Tom when asked for a realtor recommendation, and will certainly do so in the future.”  Dave Novak, Park City, Mar 19, 2015

“Tom, we have never worked with another realtor, or heard of one for that matter, that was as patient, conscientious, and thorough as you have been.  I doubt we would have followed through with all the steps needed to complete this transaction without your site specific knowledge, guidance, and assistance.” Lucy Jordan, Salt Lake City, March 5, 2015

“Tom far exceeded my expectations for a purchasing agent. He is tenacious about establishing, communicating, and hitting deadlines. That made the entire process go as smoothly as possible. Early on, Tom helped me clarify my needs – which were slightly different than I originally thought and extremely important for my property selection. He taught me a comprehensive system for renting my condo, and connected me with a mentor. His vision extends beyond the sale. Tom knows what he’s doing. He has a system for everything he does. Knowing I could trust him and his process was liberating and took the stress out of purchasing my condo. –Jay Mitchell, Jan. 3, 2014

“Tom has been living in Park City for over 25 years which gives him a profound sense of experience and history which he expertly utilizes in serving his clients. I found him to be professional, accommodating and VERY knowledgeable of the area and market. He was more than a Realtor, he was more like a consultant guiding me in making the right choice for the right reasons. He steered me in a different direction when considering poor decisions by being sensitive and logical. Because of his knowledge, experience and expertise. I found the perfect home and I am loving it. He was a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend Tom when you are looking for the perfect home in the greater Park City area.” – Paul Knoll, Park City, October 8, 2014

“You made my first home buying process so easy. You showed us homes that had features I didn’t even know we wanted until you showed them to us. You communicated with our lender, and the sellers, making our busy life much easier, and less complicated. You worked your magic getting us into our dream home without burdening us with all the details, just the ones that mattered …Without you, we wouldn’t have found the perfect home we now have.”  – Emily Holcombe, PC, Sept. 8, 2014

“Tom sold our house!  He first showed us a detailed marketing plan and a thoughtful review of the comps and other market values.  He is so competent, calm and experienced – we completely trusted his suggestions. Tom went way beyond what we were expecting as far as service, attention to details and good advice.  We highly recommend Tom and Layla Ward….you will NOT find a more competent and trust worthy real estate team.”  Joan and Rick Ernst, Park City, Sept. 19, 2014
