I am writing to express my complete satisfaction with Tomaj Trenda as a realtor.
I worked with Tomaj on the sale or my home, and was pleased with his hard work, communication and thoroughness. Throughout the entire process, Tomaj was professional, conscientious and motivated to help us sell our home. He returned calls promptly and made himself highly accessible. Tomaj made meetings convenient and was able to work with our schedule. He provided us with wonderful advice on the best way to sell our home and was very knowledgeable about the entire process. We felt completely comfortable following his advice! I would highly recommend working with Tomaj Trenda.

I am extremely lucky that I got Tomaj on my side, with his expertise in Short Sales. During a frustrating 6 month process, Tomaj kept a professional manner, put in extra hours helping me fill out documentation and guided me through the entire process. He constantly stayed on top of the process while keeping me informed. He had to deal with 2 short selling banks as well as a divorcing couple. Tomaj got the Short Sale approved, and after closing, I was able to walk away free and clear of all debts! I recommend Tomaj to anyone and everyone in need. I can’t thank him enough.

Working with Tomaj as my Real Estate Broker has been a real pleasure. He is incredibly professional, knowledgeable, honest and efficient. In selling our property, he sold it quickly and for a much higher price than I had anticipated. I highly recommend him and would definitely use him again in the future.

"I was looking to buy a home in Rockridge and met Tomaj at an open house he was holding. Rockridge is a challenging market because few homes come on the market and they tend to go quickly when they do. To make things more challenging I had very specific requirements that I did not want to compromise on. Success meant having an agent who would quickly check every new property coming on the market. Tomaj saved me a lot of time by pre-screening properties he knew didn't match my needs. When there was a potential match Tomaj always worked around my busy schedule to see it. The process took months but we finally found a home and location that I really like. I would not hesitate to use Tomaj in the future or recommend him to someone else who needs to buy or sell a home."

“We have recently purchase our first home in Pleasant Hill. We had Tomaj Trenda help us through the process. It was a short sale and a very difficult process that took a lot of experience on Tomaj’s part dealing with both the banks and the sellers. We were very, very happy with his guidance. He was wonderful in every aspect, giving us great advice throughout the entire transaction. He made sure we were in a home we were very comfortable with. We love our new home. THANK you Tomaj! Fantastic work! Thank you for all of your guidance and assistance throughout the process. Your knowledge of the market place is top notch!”
Philip & Gabriella Maxfield, Pleasant Hill

“We closed on an investment property – a duplex in San Leandro - and we used Tomaj Trenda. He was very helpful in numerous areas as a real estate agent. It was an 8 month process and Tomaj showed us any property we were interested in, and gave a lot of extra effort to research all properties we were interested in. We wrote a lot of offers, and Tomaj would do so very efficiently. Within less than a day the offer would be written up and submitted. Because of Tomaj’s expediency, we were able to get into contract and beat out other buyers, and eventually close on the deal.

Even though we looked at a lot of properties, Tomaj never pressured us to write an offer or buy. On one property we got into contract on and then backed out, Tomaj was very patient with us. For him, it was not about “the quick sale”, he allowed us to work on OUR time frame to find the right opportunity and he always had our best interest in mind. He came with us to the signing at closing to support us, stepped in with clarification when needed and was very thorough.  We enjoyed the experience and definitely got a property we wanted. We could not be more thrilled. Thanks Tomaj!”

I just recently purchased my first home in Lafayette and I used Tomaj Trenda as my Realtor. I thought Tomaj was fantastic. We had a very difficult negotiation – we had to do a lot of things - and Tomaj persevered and got me to where I wanted to be. He helped me get a great price for a wonderful property in a great area. I highly recommend him for anyone looking for a great deal. Great work!
Stefan Mihaylov, Lafayette

I highly recommend Tomaj Trenda of Better Homes Realty as a short sale specialist. He closed my Walnut Creek Condo in a record 4 months when we were prepared for it to take several months longer. He did a fantastic job of explaining every step of the process and always informed me what the next step would be.

Tomaj was diligent and tenacious in dealing with the HOA and did his due diligence to cut through the red tape of negotiating with all the departments of the bank. He made a stressful process painless. I could not be more pleased with the outcome he produced.  Again, I cannot thank Tomaj enough for making a difficult decision and daunting process so painless. I really mean it. I simply could not be more thrilled than with the favorable outcome he produced. Thank you for your smart work and making this happen!
Emmy Woodke, Walnut Creek

We both feel that you did an excellent job and met all of our expectations. Even though there were some snags along the way, you kept us informed and were very helpful in finding a solution. The contractors you suggested were excellent and we would not hesitate to recommend you to our friends and family who might be interested in buying or selling a home. Thanks again!
Nick and Shirley Damante, Lafayette

I’m looking forward to helping you move!
