Our professional relationship with Tom was outstanding from beginning to end. He took the time to get to know us, what we needed and how important our home was to us.The home was evaluated completely, listed accurately and sold in a very short period of time. Tom’s expertise and full knowledge of the area helped us sell our home professionally.In addition, we now proudly consider Tom a good friend. His honesty and integrity are beyond reproach. We were very proud to work with him and were fortunate to have him represent us.

Tom is an absolutely amazing agent. He helped us find our first home this winter and we couldn’t have asked for better service. Not only was it our first time going through the process, but we were also new to the area, and really gave us a great lay of the land. He is punctual and responsive, met us on short notice (even on Christmas Eve), and very patient with the many questions that come with buying a first home. At every step of the way he treated us with respect and took us under his wing as if we were family. He has a ton of local knowledge and a great contact list of reputable service providers for all of the things we needed during and even after our home-buying process. We highly recommend him, especially for first time buyers.

Tom is the epitome of what anyone would want in a real estate agent. He made us feel like we were his only clients by his attention, quick and detailed level of communication, hard work and dedication to the sale of our house. His knowledge of the market and process allowed us to be in the very best of hands. He is truly the best of the best.

We appreciate all the assistance given by Thomas J. Ralph Real Estate in selling our home in New Rochelle and purchasing a new home in Carmel, NY. This was our first experience in selling and buying houses. Tom and Jason Ralph took the time to educate us in detail on how the process works. They kept us informed about our deals on a timely basis and were persistent and professional in helping us achieve success in both the selling and buying process.

Tom helped sell my parents home in 2014. His years of experience and knowledge helped them get a great price for their home. He was fully dedicated and spent the necessary time with them to help them understand the entire sales process. His hard work with open houses and strong negotiation skills were instrumental to a successful sale. Tom is a true professional in every sense.
— Frank Sansotta
Tom was professional, knowledgeable, and committed to finding our home. After discussing our budget, wants, and needs at an open house, Tom delivered. He was the seller’s agent for the home we purchased, but showed us homes in the area we wanted to be in. He made the process stress-free and easy. He informed us of comparables in the area in order to formulate an offer. He delivered our offer and after a few negotiations the seller and us agreed on a price. It only took a couple of days! We closed on our contracted closing date and could not be happier. Tom is honest, professional, and dedicated and we highly recommend his service.
— Sabrina Machado
Tom worked with my wife and I to help us find and purchase our home. From start to finish his knowledge and experience helped us find the right home, and his negotiating expertise led us to acquire the home well below our “bottom line”.
Tom also helped us rent our previous home, quickly and at the listed rent. I would highly recommend Tom to any friends and family hoping to buy or sell a home. It was a pleasure to work with him and his company.

I have used Tom to buy several properties. He is knowledgeable, honest and hard working. I think he will find you the best deal in Westchester. Tom Ralph was very patient while working to find me a house. He gave me comps so I could make an educated offer. He guided me through the offer procedure. I got the property inspected after offer was accepted and he stayed with the inspector for the entire day. I was out of town the day of the inspection. Tom worked with me through the mortgage application. Tom made everything run smoothly.

My coop was listed for sale the same time the recession hit hardest. It was a special property but the real estate market was at a standstill. I had one realtor, then another, with no results even as the market improved a bit. Tom Ralph was referred by a close friend with an acute business sense and so I engaged this stranger as my third realtor. And a few months later, I had a sale, with a difficult buyer and he negotiated the issues with aplomb and total professionalism, bringing the deal to a successful conclusion. We have stayed in touch since, his knowledge and manner are worthy of years of experience, and I recommend his services unconditionally.

I am a real estate attorney in Westchester County and I have worked with Thomas Ralph for almost ten years on many different real estate transactions and have found him to be highly professional in all of his dealings with clients, lenders, and attorneys. He is extremely proactive in moving matters forward for a successful conclusion. In fact, my husband and I hired Tom Ralph to file a protest on the assessed value of our own home. Tom was extremely thorough. He examined our home and took photographs to support his argument and was successful in obtaining a substantial tax reduction. We strongly recommend Thomas Ralph as a real estate broker and for real estate tax reduction proceedings on private homes in Westchester County.

I recently worked with Tom Ralph in regards to purchasing a multi-family property in New Rochelle, NY. Tom was highly professional, very thorough, and a pleasure to work with. Tom answered all of my questions in a timely manner and continued to stay in contact after the deal was signed. I would recommend Tom’s services to any and all clients.

On behalf of my siblings and myself, I am writing to express my complete satisfaction with Thomas J. Ralph, Principal Broker entrusted with the sale of our parents home in 2013. Throughout the entire process Tom was professional, conscientious, and motivated. We always felt as though we were his only client.
Initially we were uncertain of the asking price of our parents home, but Tom diligently checked multiple sources to verify the pricing was on-point and met our goal of selling the house within the desired timeframe.
Tom scheduled all meetings and interactions at our convenience after work and on weekends. He provided us with outstanding advice and resources when preparing the home for sale. He created a multiple listing profile (including magnificent photos) for maximum exposure and advertised both on-line and during all open house showings. Tom worked extremely hard and demonstrated his knowledge and deep appreciation of the real estate industry including contract details, local building laws and negotiation etiquette with realty professionals, town officials and attorneys from initial discussions throughout and beyond house closing. Tom personally and promptly responded to all questions and utilized all modes of communication (face to face, phone, text, e-mail and postal-mail) to ensure timely and accurate information sharing among all interested parties.
Thomas J. Ralph is by far the best real estate broker I have ever known. He possesses incredible integrity and demonstrates attention to detail, excellent follow-through, and is extremely kind and personable. I highly recommend Tom to anyone and look forward to working with him again in the future.

Should we have the need for your services in the future I would gladly reach out to you and would not hesitate to recommend you to others.

I have known and worked with Tom Ralph for 25+ years. As one of his preferred mortgage banker/broker’s working with his clientele; those clients boast of his knowledge, skills and honesty, often. In our dealings, Tom is always straightforward and excellent at staying “on top” of the process straight through to closing.
— Ralph Berardi, Jr.
Working with Tom has been a pleasure from beginning to end. Despite the ups and downs of the home-buying process, he never lets you lose sight of the fact that he will help you find the perfect home for you and your family. His patience is limitless and his enthusiasm is infectious. At the end you have not just found a home, but you have made a friend.

When we decided to sell our house we contacted Tom of Thomas J. Ralph Real Estate on the recommendation of a trusted friend. Tom visited with us and patiently and carefully reviewed what the selling experience should be like from start to finish. He listened, heard, and understood our feelings regarding our home and our community. After his initial assessment, and our agreement to use his services, he quickly went to work and we could not have been more pleased with the outcome. Tom’s knowledge combined with his communication style, approachability, and his commitment to his clients confirmed that we had made the right decision to use his firm. We would highly recommend his services for your real estate needs.

When my family decided to sell our house, we wanted a realtor who would provide personal, professional service. We did not want to get lost in one of the larger corporate real estate firms. Tom was there for us every step of the way providing guidance and helping us to navigate through the process. His loyal, attentive and expertise was greatly appreciated. We would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to sell their house, or purchase another home. You will not be disappointed or let down.

Tom has a top-notch knowledge of the market and was especially attentive to my goals. He gave me excellent advice for making my property more saleable prior to putting it on the market, and clearly explained the expectations and process of selling my property. Once listed Tom provided me with constant feedback and quickly located a buyer for my property. He was extremely dependable, updating me every step of the way. He diligently marketed my property all the way through a smooth closing. He continues to stay in touch with me even though my closing was more than 6 months ago.Most importantly, I always felt Tom was honest, caring, and considerate.I highly recommend Tom Ralph to anyone, including my family and friends.

Mr. Ralph was professional and organized. He values his clients and looks out for their interest. He provided me with information that facilitated with the sale. Our communication was on-going. He was available and answered my questions thoughtfully. My house sold quickly.

I rarely write reviews, but Thomas (Tom) Ralph, is an excellent agent and I want to share our experience. Tom represented us in the sale of our home and then sold us our new home. Neither sale was straight forward. There was confusion and complications with both. Tom worked tirelessly to close both deals. One could say that’s what he should do. Well, yes. However, the persistence and integrity with which he worked proved his professionalism was above expectation. Tom represented the seller when we bought our new home and was clear that she was his client. We understood and respected this. There was a discrepancy in plans for the house filed with the city. He literally became an investigator, to prove the error. Tom’s diligence worked in everyone’s favor when the city acknowledged the error. Money was saved, the structure was preserved, and we along with the seller were spared of the anguish of a broken deal. We are appreciative of his service
