Client Testimonials

Here at Tom Crimmins Realty, we take pride in our customer satisfaction. We are the most honest, professional, and hard-working real estate agency around. Don't take our word for it, though - hear what some of our clients have to say about us.

Have you worked with us in the past and would like to send us your praise?

I would highly recommend working with Tom. Very professional and attentive. I was a first time buyer and didn't have much knowledge about the neighborhood and he was very helpful and outgoing. He was an absolute pleasure to work with and I know that the next time I am looking to buy or sell a house in Staten Island, he will be the first and only agent I will deal with.


Tom sold my house in West Brighton. He was extremely knowledgable of the real estate market in this area. He did an excellent job in marketing my home and getting the highest price. Very professional and results oriented. I would recommend him without hesitation.


Tom is the consummate professional. He is very knowledgeable regarding the neighborhoods in Staten Island and knows how to get the deal done. I would highly recommend Tom. He responds quickly and has the answers.


My wife and I recently purchased our first home while working with Tom Crimmins. Tom is a standup guy and will not lead you in the wrong direction. We went looking at houses for a full day and he knew exactly the type of house we wanted. We worked with Tom on a previous deal that did not work out and he was very understanding. When it came time again to look, he was always available and ready to show us any house. He was always very quick to resond to voicemails and emails. Tom is a great agent, a true professional and he knows the business insided and out. I would highly recommend Tom to anyone who is looking to purchase a home.


Reliable, fast, fair, worth working with.

I bought a home in West Brighton earlier this year, and I can't thank Tom enough! Tom is professional, friendly, and extremely knowledgeable - and his expertise really shows. He presented me with all of my options and referred me to the right people to make buying my dream home a reality. Tom clearly has his client's best interest in mind, and I recommend him with the utmost confidence!

Tom is one of the most honest and nicest real estate professional that i ever dealt with it

Mario Minelli

As a first-time homebuyer, the concept of my having to go out and view properties was a daunting task, one that required a substantial amount of time, patience, and most importantly, a good realtor to represent my interests. I had the very unpleasant experience of initially working with a realtor (that I had randomly selected from a real estate magazine) whose goals were later revealed to not be in line with my interests, and so, after three weeks of spinning my wheels, I was back to the drawing board, with no realtor and no prospective property to view/purchase.

After receiving a personal recommendation from my lawyer, I reached out to his referral, Tom Crimmins, to see if we could find common ground in our goals, especially given my preferences and budget constraints. Tom struck me as a well-mannered, professional agent who listened more than he spoke (a very positive attribute in a realtor!) and was willing to invest the time and effort to find me a property that would suit my needs. To say that he was just a good agent for my home search would be an understatement – Tom was the perfect realtor for me as a first-time homebuyer. We went through numerous properties, and even though I found some issue in the majority of them that put me off from making an offer, Tom never showed any frustration at my decisions not to move forward, he simply nodded after hearing my personal view of the property at hand, and then left to continue to search for what he believed to be the next best property for me. After a fairly short time, he found the house that fit the bill, negotiated a price that I considered quite fair, and now I am looking forward to closing on my new property. Tom took care to ensure that I was involved in the home-buying negotiation process, and I felt that he really took an interest in my personal well-being as a prospective homebuyer (he reviewed transit access, schools, and safety with me when selecting properties to view).

Tom is a fantastic agent to work with…he really takes the buyer’s interests into account, from both a monetary and a style/preference perspective. He is a consummate professional who knows his business very well, and will take your concerns as a buyer to heart when trying to locate a new home for you.

Whether you are a first-time homebuyer or are buying your next upgrade to accommodate a growing family, I strongly recommend that you consider Tom Crimmins for your real estate needs.

Best of luck in your property search!

Tom was a pleasure to work with. He is extremely knowledgable about the real estate transaction and his utmost concern is the comfort of his clients. He found the perfect office for my firm in Westerleigh, an area he knows extremely well. I was very impressed with his professionalism and tireless work ethic. Tom was extremely accessible throughout the whole process from contract to closing. Tom is also a gentleman and a genuinely nice person. i would certainly highly recommend his services.

Peter Martin

I had the absolute pleasure of working with Michel Scibetta as a first time buyer! She was incredibly professional, patient, and passionate about making sure we found the perfect home for us. She was able to understand what we were looking for based on our taste right away and always had our best interests in mind. Michel made this process so smooth and really worked with us and for us to make sure we got the best deal on our first home. Not only that, but she always guided us in the right direction when looking for a mortgage broker and lawyer and made the closing process so seamless as well.

Ron Zarrelli

I met Tom Zanata via email when I was looking at a particular condo. I told Tom exactly what I was looking for and low and behold he came through for me. Tom is a gentleman, a considerate man, cooperative and very compassionate. He not only was kind to me on my good days, but also my bad days. If he had appointments set up, he would always be there on time, actually always before me.

I can really say he worked very hard to get me this condo. I commend him for this. I'm going to be very happy because of Tom Zanata. I could go on and on but I'm sure whoever chooses Tom as a broker will have the same experience as I did. Thank you Tom for all you did for me. My sons thank you also.


Tom is the absolute best. He listed and sold my home in less then two hours on the first day of the listing, close to full asking price. The guy is a tireless worker with an uncanny ability to read the market. I actually received more money for the home then initially anticipated. I can not recommend Tom highly enough to handle your personal real estate needs.

Graig Martin

My family asked Tom to help us find our first home in 2008. He listened to our needs and understood exactly what we were looking for. He showed us a number of houses and guided us through the process of buying our first home. Tom is an excellent realtor. He knows the neighborhoods and the market. He held our hand throughout the process and helped make the whole experience easy-going and our transition to first time home owner a smooth one. Tom is just an all around great guy. We put our trust in him and are living happily in our home for the past three years. Thanks, Tom!


It was a pleasure working with Tom who represented us in our recent purchase of our first single family home. 
Tom guided us through the entire process having alway been available, professional, and patient; from loan prequalifications, to searching houses, to making offers, and closing the deal.
Tom definitely knows the market inside & out. Every person he recommend from the home inspector to the lawyer were a perfect match for us. We still take his recommendations to this day on all our home improvements! We credit Tom with a smooth and stress free home buying experience.
We could never have gotten our dream home without him and HIGHLY recommend Tom and his expertise to everyone.


I worked with Tom when I purchased my first home. I was a rookie, but Tom patiently walked me through the process. When I first met with Tom, I wasn't even sure exactly what type of home I was looking for, but Tom was happy to expose me to a variety of properties and guide me in making my final decision. He was also incredibly accessible throughout the process. In addition to being very knowledgeable about real estate, Tom is also a genuinely nice person who is a pleasure to deal with. Highly recommended!!

Eileen Pinto

I recently purchased a home in Brooklyn through Tom who was the listing agent. He was professonal, courteous and delivered exactly as he had promised. My wife and I had a great experience and would happily recommend his services.


Tom is an excellent, knowledgable, and caring person and real estate agent. Our first home buying experience took some time but Tom was with us and for us every step of the way. He is supportive of his clients and truly has their best interest and happiness in mind. Tom is one of the best!!


I've known Tom for as long as I've been renting an apartment from him -- the last two years -- and I highly recommend him as an honest, informed, and reliable man in all my dealings with him.

Craig Andrew

I have to say I worked with a number of agents before working with Tom. I will refrain from giving my opinion of the other agents but let me say this, they are all the same, and I think anyone who has worked with agents know exactly what I'm talking about and dread working with them. I met Tom only once and that was good enough for me. He sold me my house on the first time out. Why? Because he was patient, listened to my needs and found the exact match that I was looking for. He is also upfront and honest and answered all of my questions. He took the time to explain things and was readily available to answer my calls. He knows the business inside and out, I highly recommend him!!

Dan k.

I met Tom randomly at an open house and it was the best thing that happened to me in my housing search. He is a great guy and always had the time to show us whatever particular house we wanted to see as well as answer any questions we had. I will def use him in the future and recommend him to anyone looking for a real estate agent.
