Tom Grieve

Sales Consultant/ Auctioneer, Ray White Carnegie

Tom thrives on hard work. He has been known to work 60-70 hour weeks and somehow maintain an easy going, well-mannered personality that people seem to be drawn to.

And that’s what Tom likes. He loves meeting people, being privileged to walk in their front door, learn about them, learn about their needs and future hopes and walk out the door, sometimes hours later, like a newly found friend, who only has their best interests at heart.

Tom is a qualified motor mechanic and has somehow turned the grease and oil into an established real estate career. He was nomiated the Ray White Rising Star for Victoria & Tasmania in 2012 and earnt a place as a Ray White Premier Member in 2013, 2014, 2015 & 2016; an award recognising a high level of sales success within the group. A fully licensed estate agent, he is also one of the areas most active auctioneers. This makes him one of the few agents that have the ability to seamlessly manage the entire sales process from start to finish.

He is proud of the Ray White philosophy – real estate is about the people, not the property; building relationships is the key. Tom sees the importance of creating that connection between each person he meets, aspiring to help them sell their property with minimal stress or buy a property that perfectly fits their needs.

Tom enjoys the vibrant demographic that Carnegie and its surrounding suburbs have to offer, from first home buyers, to young families, empty-nesters to those who can tell you about days when the milkman and his horse used to wander the streets. Tom finds everyone has a story, and each story is inspiring.

Tom is a Melbourne High School old boy and a keen supporter of the Essendon football club. In his quiet time he enjoys spending time with his wife and daughter.

Reviews

Tom was the 4th agent I listed my property with and I found him to be so different to everyone I dealt with. He was professional, he was optimistic and he kept me updated daily. I only have good things to say about Tom and Ray White Carnegie.

Hi Matt, Firstly let me thank you for the extra mile you and your team went too, in order to achieve a result that despite inclement weather was very pleasing. I’m sure I do not need to point out to you, how good the individuals under your employ are, but I will do so regardless. Before deciding on Ray White I interviewed 4 different Agents, I also spoke to companies, and people you have dealt with. I could go into chapter and verse, as to what was wrong with each Agent, however I would rather focus on what was right with your team. Tom Grieve from the outset was not pushy for the listing, spoke honestly and did not attempt to sway us with false promises. His attention to detail, and advice given, was reflected in the end result. At no time did Tom try to influence me to change my reserve, instead worked on a strategy that would give us the best opportunity to achieve it. Josh Hommelhoff was equally important, keeping me informed on a regular basis in Tom’s absence. Providing detail as to who attended inspections and the insight from each prospective purchaser, as did Tom. Again it was the professional factual approach without bullshit, is what always most impressed. I was also impressed with an auction I witnessed Matt Hurlston conduct, prior to our property going on the market, and knew that my family would be in good hands under his stewardship! You did not disappoint, the manner in which you hold yourself, both personable, and professional impressed each of the family. Auction day weather had the potential to be problematic in so many ways, other Agencies, I’m sure would have taken the approach of let’s get this done as quickly as possible, and get out of the rain. The Ray White team not only stood in the rain, but sheltered those bidding to ensure that every possible dollar was achieved. It’s fair to say that the army of Ray White personal on hand, was impressive catering to the multiple nationalities in attendance. It’s also fair to say, that all were not there to settle for second best, and wasn’t going to let my family die wondering with what if, and this was important! At the end of proceedings all looked like drowned rats, this dedication was not lost on any of the family. Would I recommend Ray White Carnegie? ABSOLUTLEY! If I was to give a rating it would be 10. Again many thanks, from a very grateful Whitehead family.

It was an absolute pleasure dealing with Tom.

Geoff & Julie

Tom has been very helpful all through the process - from initial discussions re the potential sale of the property to the final sales and marketing campaign leading upto the auction

David & Shalini

Tom was fantastic to deal with. He always kept me in the loop, always punctual, easy to get a hold of, clearly understood my needs and queries. He was personal, warm and really made me feel like he had my best interests at heart. I feel lucky that I got Tom to be my agent.

Edward & Rachael Stephani

Kirsten

Excellent service, good feedback from inspections, very good communication all round.

Deborah

Tom is professional, clear communicator and flexible.

Kate

I first spoke to Tom a couple of years ago when I asked for a valuation on my house. Since then he has been in regular contact with me and provided information as and when I needed it. I found Tom very responsive to my requests for assistance and/or further information.

Susan

Tom is reliable, very personable and professional. His advice was well considered and unpressured. He was accessible when I required answers to particular questions and was always respectful, polite and helpful.

Diana

Fantastic to come across someone (particularly in real estate, understanding the stigma of the industry at times) who was clearly working hard for the interests of the client and not just out to get a quick sale. Tom was always well presented, personable, highly-professional and kept in constant contact with us throughout the process. The detailed information he provided us ongoing (particularly Opens) was also very important for our peace of mind. Certainly a real positive for the business and the industry too - definitely would recommend him.

Dear Tom: I would like to send you a note of thanks for all the hard-work and dedication you gave me in selling my home. Even though I didn't know you, I was impressed by your persistence, initiative and enthusiasm when you were doing your letterbox drops. After the renovations were complete and I decided to sell, there was no doubt that I wouldn't ask you to help me sell my home. Your service was excellent. You took charge of the whole campaign, making sure I had one less thing to worry about. You kept me informed every day of potential buyers, how inspections went and you advised me with your professional expertise of any offers presented and what I should do. I even caught you doing a letterbox drop in the early hours of the morning, just to make sure we had a crowd on auction day. You really couldn't have done anymore. I was more than happy with the price achieved last Saturday on auction day, going well beyond the reserve. I would highly recommend your service to anyone looking to sell. You are well-mannered, respectful, diligent in your approach and a pleasure to work with. Many thanks, John Lynch

John Lynch - Carnegie

Dear Tom, I just wanted to write and thank you for such a remarkable result you achieved selling my courtyard apartment. I was so impressed with how you communicated with me, how you understood my uncertainty in renting out my home or deciding to sell it, and most of all, I was impressed with how you didn't pressure me into anything and just wanted to help. Your professionalism is a true testament to who you are. I always felt you were sincere, polite, calm and approachable. I could trust you, which is a difficult thing to say in any business dealing. Nothing was ever too hard and you always calmed my anxieties. I'm so glad that I went local and that your extensive local knowledge and your passion for real estate really shone through. I felt that you are bright, articulate and very intuitive, which is very important to me. I loved how the team at Ray White works together so that more buyers had a chance to see my home. It's reassuring that I put my trust in the right person, and the right company. You are a true gentleman. I would highly recommend you to anyone selling their home.

Libby Bourke - Carnegie

Dear Tom, We would like to extend our thanks for helping us sell our home in Hatter Street Oakleigh. We got a price greater than we were hoping for, we had an agent who we could not fault and, besides a few nerves on auction day, we had a campaign that went smoothly. That's a testament to you and your professionalism. Your daily contact with us kept as both informed and at ease throughout the entire campaign. You organized a stylist to help us with our presentation. We found it refreshing that you were always open and honest with us about potential buyers and their concerns. The price we reached under the hammer, was the result of everyone's hard work and dedication. We would gladly recommend you as an agent for anyone looking to sell their home. We loved that you weren't pushy and delivered everything you said you would. With warmest regards, Steve and Jo Price

Steve & Jo Price - Oakleigh

Dear Tom, It is with thanks I am please to write this letter of recommendation. Over the duration of the sale your constant attention to the fine details has made the process painless and extremely rewarding. Your attitude and character are exemplary making all interaction an enjoyable process. In the final outcome, I must contribute the majority of the success to your hard work, long hours and dedication to your customers. Finally, I would like to say, you will be my first contact for any future dealings I may have regarding property sales. I wish you all the best in your career.

Wayne Girdlestone - Ormond

We both firmly believe that without your professionalism, determination, current market knowledge and sheer hard work, there is absolutely no way we would have achieved the result that we did.After a number of poor experiences with real estate agents in the past, it was refreshing to encounter a real estate agent that was open and honest with us without being pushy or aggressive. We found the weekly reports and daily phone chats in the last month really helpful. As though we were at work during the inspections, we were given a detailed picture of the market interest in our property which helped us greatly in determining our final reserve price.On the day of the auction, although emotions were running high, we were immediately put at ease when we opened the blinds and noticed that (shock horror) you had already been at work and had put the 'auction today' signs out at 6.30am! The auctioneer was also professional and friendly and it was reassuring to know during the auction that the Ray White Carnegie team were outside working hard to achieve the desired result – and we ended up $40K over the reserve price, even in this very uncertain market; Impressive.

Alex & Roberto - Bentleigh

Hi Tom, We would like to thank you for the recent sale of our family home in Oakleigh. We felt we were in great hands and the whole process flowed beautifully from day one. The campaign we thought was top class, we had many comments on the online presentation and we couldn't imagine what else could have been done to attract more potential purchasers. This obviously resulted in multiple inspections and bidders. Your weekly reports were always eagerly anticipated and with your diligence and attention to detail proved to be a good guide as to what to expect. Our decision to put our home on the market at the point of the auction that we did was due to the confidence and advice we received from both you and Matt.

Gaz & Chrissy Iverson - Oakleigh

Morning Tom, Thank you for all your help in selling my father's family home. It was a very trying time for me and with you keeping me very informed on what was happened week to week it put my mind to rest that the property was in very capable hands. The auction was a great success with Matt at the helm. I would recommend you both to anyone. Also, my daughter is going to put her house on the market in Pakenham. I was wondering if you know of anyone there you could recommend? Regards, Lorraine McGeary

Lorraine McGeary - Bentleigh East

Dear Barry, Tom & Matt, Thank you for your great service and support in selling my property in what is currently a very challenging and difficult market. Your service, regular contact, open communication and can do attitude helped make what can be a very stressful experience allot more easier. Your assessment of the current market proved to be reatistic, and yet we were able to achieve a great result of $47,000 more than our nearest competitor for that weekend. Again thanks, and I have no hesitation in recommending Ray White Carnegie to any future clients. All the best. Regards Jenny Tsipouras

Jenny Tsipouras - Murrumbeena

It was a pleasure working with you for the same outcome and you made the process very smooth for me as you went above and beyond on many occasions.
