Tom has sold me my last two houses. In both cases, they were not houses I would have found on my own, and in both cases they were the perfect house for my family! Tom is very familiar with the local area, he is honest and ethical and truly knows the real estate business. Unlike some real estate professionals who sell houses part time to make money - Tom is a FULL TIME realtor, allowing him to obtain the knowledge necessary to find you the perfect house or find the perfect buyer for your house.

Tom is great! We listed our house with him and it sold very quickly! What is usually a stressful process was a breeze with Tom. He knows all the ins and outs and most importantly we got top dollar for our home! If we were still in the area we would definitely use Tom again!

Tom was a professional when we were looking to buy a house, but more importantly, his down-to-earth friendly demeanor made us feel very comfortable and relaxed with the entire process. What can be an exhausting experience, going from place to place in search of the perfect one, was actually quite fun with Tom throwing in his outstanding humor between giving us precise details and answering all our questions with ease.

We cannot speak highly enough of our experience with Tom. When we bought our first property we interviewed several agents. He was the only one willing to take the time to educate us about the local market. Tom invested extra time in us to ensure we purchased what we were looking for. One of Tom's greatest assets is his honesty. He never tries to pressure you into something you are going to regret.

We were so fortunate to have found Tom when we moved to Illinois. As our Realtor, he helped us find the right house for us. He was patient as we traveled from West Virginia to look at homes (many homes) over several months and cautioned us about making unreasonable offers when we fell too quickly for overpriced homes.

In short, he was always on our side working to make our house purchase as simple and successful as possible. The best part about working with Tom was that he was always more focused on answering our questions, giving us good advice, and finding homes that met our needs than he was on closing a deal. We would recommend him to anyone.

Tom is one of a Kind!

Tom Bariether is top notch! And let me tell you he went above and beyond, he showed us around 35-40 houses over the course of two months or so, he held a crying baby, corralled a dog, fed us and drove us town to town and county to county. He has become a close family friend we still are in touch years later.

No real estate transaction is too big or too small for Tom, both get special attention from him .
Tom explains everything about the properties and everything about the whole process in purchasing the properties. I haven’t had properties for sale but I have purchased two properties through him and he made it really easy for me .
Tom Bariether will find the kind of property that you were looking for and he will make the purchasing easy for you

Tom has been a long time friend who has handled several if not most of the real estate transactions for the Coffey Family for several years. He is honest and will tell it like it is even if it is not something you want to hear. Tom has always gone that extra mile in all of the dealings we have had and makes sure everyone understands what is happening and why. I have no problem recommending him highly.

Tom is a great Realtor with extensive knowledge of Coles County and the surrounding area. He is the only Realtor that gets our phone call, and follows up quickly and expertly every time. He has always gone far above the level of support and service expected, and has never disappointed us in any way.

Tom has handled every real estate transaction in Illinois for us in the last 20 years, most recently, this last Spring, and will continue to be our Realtor for many years to come.
