Tom and Cindy Ralston continuously updated me on the status of the sale of the property. From pricing, to market conditions, to possible improvements to make the property more ready to sell, they were always keeping me apprised of what to do next. I would HIGHLY recommend Tom & Cindy to any potential buyer or seller!

We met Tom at an open house. He took the time to ask and listen to the things we were looking for, rather than just sell the house (we didn't go for that house). He told us that he was part of a team with his wife Cindy. As we progressed through the buying process, the value they bring as a team soon proved itself. A resourceful and very professional pair. We were difficult buyers in that we had an extensive list of requirements for a retirement dream house that was difficult to balance when selecting potential properties. We were amazed how quickly they came to understand how we would think about the tradeoffs each property presents. Tom always went to see the property before they took us over. It was labor intensive but payed off for us as we had to travel from the bay area to see each house. Every place we saw had merit. We were never pressed to commit, they just kept finding places until that one in a million place came to us. For this high end property, the negotiation and escrow was difficult and Cindy guided us through the process. We are sure that without their efforts we would not have made it to closure. Moving to a new area was daunting. The distance made many tasks difficult and tiring. Tom and Cindy did many things for us went beyond what one could expect any realty service. It made the task a LOT easier for us and saved literally weeks of effort for me in travel and a lot of expense. We are now in our dream home. Tom and Cindy were instrumental in helping us realize it. We are grateful to them and the other people at Lyon that back them up.

Tom and Cindy made the finding and purchasing of our new home a fantastic experience. I would highly recommend them. They took us to multiple properties, they coached us on what kinds of offers we should make, they made everything very easy.


—Ken Pope- Weimar, CA
  /  April 2017

Tom and Cindy made every step of the process easy and comfortable. They offered expertise, advice, and guidance to make the sale easy. Their advice on what to do to prepare the house for sale allowed the house to sell in just 4 days with multiple offers over asking price! I would HIGHLY recommend Tom and Cindy to everyone!


—Dudley Adair, Lincoln Ca
  /  April 2017

Because I was an out of state seller and we had to work around finding a new residence for someone who was staying in the house, Tom and Cindy stepped up to handle many of the tasks I would have had to do if I were in the house we were selling. They went out of their way to make sure Sandy was taken care of as they showed the house; they maintained the lawn and yard; worked with the title company and more. They took are of everything I needed and kept me informed at every step of the process. I recommend Tom and Cindy highly!
