TJ was my broker/agent for my first home purchase. He is laid back and answers his phone when I call or calls me right back. He is professional and assisted me even months after the sale!
My real estate agent and Broker for life! I had used other real estate agents in the past to sell my home with no luck. TJ Powers took up the task and delivered perfectly. Even though there was a tenant in the property he got the price I wanted and in the time frame I needed. Couldn't ask for a more knowledgeable, personable, and trustworthy real estate broker! Highly recommended!

TJ is great!
I came to TJ with an idea of what I was hoping to accomplish. We originally planned to sell the condo we own in Playa Del Rey to fund the purchase of a larger home. After some thought, TJ helped us realize that a refinance, rather than a sale, was more beneficial in our situation due to the small amount we owed, allowing us to take quite a large sum out of the equity for the downpayment on the new purchase without having to sell our home. He will soon be helping us find a renter as well.
Long story short... Once we were pre-approved he had us in our new house with in a month. I was SHOCKED at the speed and smoothness of the transaction, as I have always heard what a "pain" home buying can be. TJ took a lot of the stress out of the process by making all the necessary calls, and paperwork. He set us up for "e-sign" for all our signatures, which also was a great help and time saver... To sum it up, TJ does the work, so you don't have to!
I would recommend TJ to anyone who is looking to buy, sell, or rent... He does it all. He's super mellow and easy to work with. Answers calls and emails almost immediately (and god knows there were many), but will fight for his clients (he got us quite a lot of cash back while negotiating in escrow). TJ is the man! And I can't wait to work with him again in the near future.
My wife and I really liked working with TJ. We were first time homebuyers, and he was a great blend of educational, patient, never pushy, and really listened to what we wanted. TJ is easy to communicate with, and he's remained helpful even now answering my questions, months after we closed.
My wife and I had some trepidation about buying our first home, but TJ really made it a surprisingly fulfilling process. He's very savvy about what's available and how to negotiate for the right price, and even with his extensive real estate knowledge we never felt like he was talking down to us. He was always available to answer our questions and listen to our concerns, and he actually seemed genuinely happy to go the extra mile for us.
Admittedly this was our only home-buying experience, but after hearing our friends' horror stories about the selfish antics of other Brokers, I really think we lucked out with TJ--he's definitely one of the good ones.
My husband and I are first time homebuyers and the whole experience is new and foreign to us. TJ is a JEM. We speak to him several times a day; he's always updating us on properties. We are now in Escrow and very happy, our daughter will come home from the hospital to a new home! He pushes other brokers to get the job done in a timely manner. He reviews the foreign contracts with us. He drops what he's doing to come out to Long Beach to show us 1 property at any given time. His schedule has been flexible and works around my husband and I. He has been working with our VA loan and recommended a fabulous inspector who took the time to review everything in person. If you’re looking for a hands on and honest guy, I would highly recommend TJ.
TJ was very helpful in finding us our dream home. He was a gem. We are very lucky to have found him. He is now part of our family and hopefully he will be able to help your family find their dream home too!!! Thanks again for everything!
Thomas made every effort to screen locations in an effort to help me successfully navigate the real estate market. His knowledge of the market and his software are second to none!

TJ Powers has been my realtor for the past several months and I can describe his services as outstanding! Energetic, laid back/professional, and very polite are a few of his qualities.
He helped me rent out my Marina del Rey condo recently. I was new to this and he spent time working with me to understand the Marina City Club rules & regulations, which we complied to. Proceeded writing up an ad and taking & posting photos. He found me a very good tenant within 1 week!
He is a very good communicator. We communicate via phone, email, and texts. Writes up a draft lease agreement for review, then finalizes when both parties approve. Also since I am out of town he coordinates delivery of monthly rent. Overall, I have enjoyed doing business with TJ Powers; he is resourceful & very reliable!!

TJ was fantastic in helping us find a new place to live. After a quick chat explaining our criteria, he created a tailored email search for us, which provided us with to-the-minute listings. He was contactable all through the weekend, which was great when you work Mon-Fri and he went out of his way to arrange inspections at a moments notice.
He was very laid back and totally not overpowering or pushy like other realtors we had met with during this process.
Very happy to have used TJ and will definitely recommend.
I truly enjoy working with Thomas. As a lender I have the opportunity to work with many Realtors. Thomas' number one focus is on his clients. He elevates his client's needs above all else. He has a hands on approach that makes his clients feel important. He is very detailed and will go the extra mile without exception. I highly recommend working with Thomas.
TJ has been extremely helpful to my wife and me. We are long time residents of Manhattan Beach, and TJ has helped us with rentals and with understanding the larger housing market. He is personable, professional, and knowledgeable. Truly a first rate ally.
TJ is extremely professional and helpful in all things real estate. He's great about answering emails and phone calls...expect him to get back very quickly. That's hard to say about many in the profession.
He helped me and my roommates find a sweet rental and have continued to give us excellent advice and planning to this day. He also has great connections in the industry that help round out his knowledge and professionalism.
He's also extremely honest and straightforward...he wont push you into something you don't want and will be routinely there for you and your suggestions...would highly recommend.
