Tom Smolinski - Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

Tom worked with me on both the purchase and the eventual sale of a property I owned in Holland MI for a few years.

Living in Chicago made it difficult for me to handle the details of both transactions. Tom and his team took the time to initially find the property and years later to sell the property. I wouldn't hesitate t use Tom again if I were ever looking for a home in SW Michigan.

Tom did a great job with my short sale.

I was in a bad spot, due to job loss and was looking at letting my house go back to the bank. Tom was able to help me with a short sale, while I was living in another state.

Nancy J Hesse (Seller )

Tom helped us purchase our first home, and it was a flawless process with him on our side!

We wanted a specific neighborhood and the market at the time was challenging for buyers. Tom never gave up on us, he always negotiated for us and our best interest. We wanted a specific neighborhood and as we looked at other places they just didn't add up to what we wanted, but Tom was patient as we went from house to house to house. He encouraged us and helped us compare houses without pressuring us into one. We finally found our dream home in our dream neighborhood and we couldn't be happier. If we were to ever sell our house, there is no one else I would ever consider having represent us. Tom made our first home buying experience flawless!

Lisa Ryzenga (Medical Scheduler)

For over twenty years my wife and I drove past our dream house.

When I saw the for sale sign I got in touch with Tom. He had us in that house first thing, made connections with the mortgage folks, and before we knew it we were moving in. Tom's a great guy we are now happy to call a friend. Not likely we'll need him again though - after all, he got us our dream house and we're not going anywhere!

Jerry Hunter

We really enjoyed working with Tom during the process of selling our home and buying a new one.

Tom is so personable and energetic! He was hands-on during the whole process, and always responsive to any questions we had. He helped us feel at ease every step of the way, and we are so glad we chose to work with him. We would definitely choose to work with him again, and would highly recommend him to others!

Tom was knowledgeable and helped us in every step along the way of our home purchase.

In this crazy and unpredictable real estate market, it was wonderful to have someone we trusted to represent us, especially when we are new to the area. In addition to being a great real estate agent, Tom is just a wonderful human being and it was a pleasure to work with him. Thanks so much, Tom!

David and Jennifer Ostrowski

I have known Tom since he was an automotive engineer in his previous career over 15 years ago.

When I decided to sell my house in February of 2020, Tom and his team helped explain to me all of the steps in regards to selling a home. Tom and his team took 3D videos, did facebook live events, had open houses, and took professional pictures. Finally, we put my home on the market! Then the unimaginable happened: I was in the process of selling a home during the Covid-19 global pandemic. I thought all hope was lost and there would be no way I could sell a home during this trying time with so many unknowns. In fact, because of the pandemic, my first offer on the home fell through and my house had to go back on the market. However, because of Tom and his team's perseverance, I ended up getting another offer and it was 10k over my asking price! I was able to sell and close on my home during this unprecedented time in our world! Tom and his team of experts are great to work with, very friendly and professional. When Covid-19 hit, no one had a play book on how to deal with all of this, but Tom and his team were able to work their way through the day-to-day changes and government mandates and still sell my home. Thanks Tom!

Amy D (Product and Development Engineer II )

Tom helped us thru the process of finding a new home with some unique specifications, then to sell our current house in record time.

He was very business like thru the whole transaction, and took a lot of his time showing properties around Michigan. When it came to the reams of paperwork required to buy & sell a house, instead of a face-to-face meeting, where many things would get forgotten about after we walked out the door, he elects to do a video presentation describing all of these form and e-mail it to us. Initially, I thought it kinda weird, but later, realized that I could go back to that presentation and listen to it several times to reinforce what he was talking about. Pretty cool use of technology. When it came time to sell our current house, an aggressive plan was formulated and the house was sold in record time, at more than we imagined we could get from the sale. I highly recommend Tom to anyone considering the buying/selling home adventure !

Pete LaBelle (Real Estate client )

Tom Smolinski and his great team did a wonderful job selling our home.

Tom was very patient while we made our decision to sell. Never pushy. It was a difficult decision for us and he was empathetic. He was extremely knowledgeable and instructive in making our home sellable. His photographer did an awesome job! They definitely have state of the art equipment and know how to use it! Thank you Tom and the Next Home Champions Team!

Michael and Nancy Kraak

We worked with Tom twice - to buy our first home and then to sell that home when we moved to Wisconsin.

Tom found us the absolute perfect first home and worked us through what could have been a complete headache of a process. It honestly was so much smoother than we thought it would ever be. Then, when we moved, he worked with us long distance making himself available day or night to answer questions and take our phone calls. Both times he made us feel like we were the only clients he was working with at the time and made sure we were getting the absolute best in all aspects of the process. We highly recommend working with Tom to buy your next home or sell your current one.

Kari Nelessen

Tom helped us out with a short sale and handled everything very professionally.

M Taylor

Tom is one of a kind.

. and gets the job done quickly.. He is awesome to work with and is a real go getter

David Ostrowski (Owner of Great Lakes Property Maintenance )

I have known Tom for many years.

I know him to be dedicated, laser-focused and extremely hard-working. I have always said that if I ever find myself in a situation that requires any form of negotiation, I want Tom right by my side. On top of all of that, Tom is the kind of person who would quite literally give you the shirt off his back if you asked him for it. So, when we decided to sell our house, my next phone call was a no-brainer. Our house was NOT an easy sell, but Tom worked his tail off, got the job done, and made it “feel” easy to us. I could not recommend him enough. If you are buying or selling a house, give him a call. You will be very happy you did.

Jason Hunter (Teacher)

Tom represented us twice, when we bought our home, and then years later when we sold.

Outstanding job, would recommend!

Chris and Pam Czernel

I used Tom and NexHome Champions to sell a commercial property in Holland, Michigan.

Tom's expertise made the process incredibly simple for me. I chose Tom because of his honesty, kindness, and overall great character. It also helped that he has a tremendous track record of success. I had no problem trusting Tom's recommendations and I knew he always had my best interest in mind. Tom marketed my property very well. He put together a 3D virtual walkthrough of the property which showed it in its best light. He coordinated with buying agents in a timely manner and kept me updated on all showings along with the feedback. Tom's thoroughness and excellence in marketing my property resulted in an acceptable offer in less than a month. The deal was closed very soon after. I highly recommend Tom and NextHome Champions for anyone looking to buy and/or sell a residence, land, or commercial property.

Brad Dorland (Home Purchser)

2 yrs.

ago we sold Tom helped us sell our house. We had put the house up for sale and went on vacation to Jamaica. Well, the house sold in just 9 days and Tom helped us get a great selling price. Needless to say, we needed to find a new house fast. While still on vacation, we worked with Tom to view several condos upon our return. The 3rd condo he showed us we fell in love with. Tom helped us get a great deal and we are now enjoying our 2nd year in the condo. Tom and his team were right by our side during the sale and purchase. He kept us informed and always responded to our questions immediately. I would absolutely use him again if we decide to sell again. Great guy.

Scott Smith (Sr. Oracle Database Administrator)

I've seen Tom literally make people's dreams come true.

The attention he personally puts into each client is remarkable in itself. Tom works harder than anyone I know. Many nights and weekends spent in the office or at properties for his clients. Vacations delayed or cut short. Not many others in the business would do that for their clients. I recommend Tom with pride and confidence. I'm never worried that I'm sending a friend or loved one his way when asked if I know a real estate agent. And every single time that individual I recommend not only tells me I was right, they also tell me they will never use anyone else but him. Keep doing what you do, Tom. Many people benefit from your hard work and expertise. Brandt Kearly

Brandt Kearly (Assistant District Manager)

Tom did a remarkable job finding us the ideal home and is always available when we need to consult with him about our real estate plans.
