The best real estate experience I ever had selling a home. Thomas was recommended to me by a friend of mine & I can see why! He was extremely precise & honest when we sold our home in NY. We had bought a home in Fl & needed to sell quick. Thomas nailed it on the pricing. I was actually going to go lower but he knew the market well & priced it accordingly. All of the potential buyers were screened thoroughly before they were permitted to enter the home.. He sold it in 3 weeks for over $10,000 than expected. His negotiation skills are superior to any realtor I have used in the past.Being that I sold a co- op, finding a qualified buyer is half the battle. Thomas made sure the application & qualifications of the buyer were exactly what the HOA were looking for, as not to waste anyone’s time. His follow up & pleasing nature with Mgmt. office made for an extremely smooth transaction.If I could give Thomas Hennessy 10 stars I would! His constant communication & follow up throughout the process were refreshing as I had two other realtors try to sell my place previously & failed. In a very stressful time during the move working with Thomas made it easy

"Thomas Hennessy has been the best real estate agent I ever worked with and I have had a couple real estate transactions prior to working with him. He is very thoughtful, caring and he really looks out for my best interest and advise accordingly. I highly recommend him.
- May 7, 2021
We had a wonderful experience working with Tom. He was courteous, helpful and very kind. He helped us through the process of selling my dad's house. He was always available when we had a question. We lived out of state and he took good care of the home in our absence. We appreciate his great work.
- February 15, 2021
Tom was a consummate professional who made the process of buying a home very seamless. He's knowledgeable, prompt, and professional. We are very thankful for Tom's help

Before choosing a real estate agent, I conducted a lot of research on how to choose a realtor. After that, I assembled my long list of questions. Then, I began days long research of different realtors in the area, checking their websites, looking at their reviews, etc. Then I assembled my long list of realtors to call.
Thomas must've been the 20th realtor I called and I have to admit....... he was THE ONLY realtor that answered every darn question on my list before I even had a chance to ask him! I hung up the phone dumbfounded and turned to my husband telling him, this is our man. I don't need to make any other phone calls. I just know, this is him. My husband was EXTREMELY wary and cynical...... but got over that very quickly after a few interactions with Thomas and now has even invited Thomas & his family to stay with us if they ever happen to be in the state we've moved to.
Thomas Hennessy is THE best! Top notch! Creme de la creme!
From day 1, the initial phone call, he was kind, BEYOND thorough, professional, and just all around great to work with. He worked well beyond what one could expect and stayed in touch constantly.
We spoke with Thomas and then met with him at our home. He took his time answering our questions, providing objective data regarding how many homes they sell, how long their listings typically stay on the market, and providing tons of info on comps in the area. Throughout the entire process, beginning to end, Thomas was ALWAYS available through various means of communication. ALWAYS.
We were concerned that due to the pandemic and the mass exodus out of New York City that our property would be tough to sell. Thomas made the process incredibly easy and took extra steps like giving us staging tips, having professional photographs taken, and a lot more. In that very first week we had hundreds of web hits, several in house visits, AND our final buyer.
Thomas walked us through every step of the closing process. The sale of our home was a difficult one, through absolutely no fault of Thomas nor our own. We had one hurdle after another getting thrown at us. He battled along side us like a champ and lifted us up when we started getting down! He acknowledged that all decisions we'd make were our own but he also was straight forward when he thought we were making a decision which was not in our best interest and took time to explain why.
Thomas is a true professional and a genuinely nice guy and now feels like a friend of the family.
I now realize it won't always be easy to sell your home, but I think you'd be hard pressed to find a better Realtor.
We were so fortunate to have found Thomas. We can't speak highly enough of him. Hands down, I HIGHLY recommend him!
- February 7, 2021
Mr. Hennessey, went above and beyond the description of your average real estate agent. From our first appointment to the closing day, Mr. Hennessey took personal time to address our many concerns and questions. Because of his exceptional knowledge, professionalism and expertise, he made us feel comfortable and assured throughout the many processes. We are truly grateful that Mr. Hennessey was present during this most difficult and challenging time! His genuine care and support throughout the journey gave us hope that better days were ahead. We were at ease with entrusting him to help us make the right decisions. We were never treated as just his clients, but more as part of his family."
- January 28, 2021
Crème de la crème! If you have any questions or concerns, Thomas will answer and solve them instantaneously. He provides clear communication, direction, and has an expansive knowledge of the real estate space as a whole. As many know, Thomas is an outstanding agent, and for many reasons. One of the reasons that highlight this is his humility - he goes above and beyond his job description; and has done tasks for my family that I am sure no other agent/friend would've done.
- November 22, 2020
Tom is the best! As a first time homebuyer the experience can be intimidating, however, Tom helped make it as simple and clear as possible. Throughout our working relationship, Tom clearly had our best interests at heart.

It was our first time buying a house, Tom was extremely helpful and went above and beyond on our behalf. He is very well informed and was communicative throughout the whole process. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for a home!
- October 26, 2020
Tom is the best real estate agent we have met so far. I and my wife were looking to buy a house from past two years and we have met many other agents. But no other is comparable to Tom. Tom knows every bit of buying and selling process and makes sure his clients are protected. The property that we were buying had illegal oil tank in it. Tom made sure that got removed and through his contacts he made sure that the certificate of completion was obtained in time. He followed up at all delays caused by other parties and did everything so that deal was made as quick as possible. I recommend Tom for buying and selling real estate properties.
- October 4, 2019
Thomas was very knowledgeable, he was very helpful, he looks for your best interests. It has been a pleasure to have him as my agent. He was also a great negotiator. He got me the price that I was happy with.
- October 3, 2019
Tom Hennessy was an absolute joy to work with. He is honest, smart, efficient and did his very best to make the sale of my deceased relative's home go as smoothly as possible. Tom was always extremely proactive and responsive. He helped with various aspects of getting the house ready for the sale that really went above and beyond his job description to help us out with all the minor details. I could not recommend him more to anyone who is looking to sell or buy a property.
- September 23, 2019
Our family recently had the pleasure of working with Tom when selling our apartment. He made the process as stress-free as possible. Whenever we had a question, he was always available. He had great suggestions on the selling price, picking the best buyer, and made sure we were comfortable with every decision we made. We had a great experience! We would highly recommend Tom to anyone seeking an experienced realtor to guide them through the home buying and selling process.
- August 9, 2019
Thomas Hennessy is a hands on, involved, detail oriented, knowledgeable and exceedingly responsive real estate agent; he leaves no stone unturned. He understands the community, has contacts that facilitate the process, makes wise recommendations and responds to every request quickly, reasonably and reliably. In short, I could not have asked for more. He’s a gem! He was recommended to me and I would recommend him without reservation.

Thomas is professional, pragmatic, exceptionally diligent, and above all, he's a kind person. He also has a keen understanding of the market price trend, which is how we were able to close so fast. My wife and I wanted to sell our apartment in Parkchester, NY. I searched how other apartments were listed in the area on zillow, trulia, and street easy. I've noticed that all of Thomas' listings had floor plan which was absent in all other units in the area listed by other agents. In addition, all of Thomas' listings featured beautiful photos that was definitely a cut above all the other ads. I called him via phone number listed on Zillow, and he promptly picked up, and he was at my place within hours. 5/2/19 Photoshoot, Appraisal. 5/3/19 Apartment listed on Zillow & Street Easy via MLS. 5/3/19 ~ 5/5/19 Multiple showings. 5/6/19 We had 6 offers. 5/7/19 We accepted an offer. 7/31/19 We closed. It was an absolute pleasure to work with Thomas. I would definitely love to work with him again in the future. My wife and I are happy customers :)

Thomas Hennessy is hands down a phenomenal realtor!! Thomas helped my husband and I sell our condo. We were impressed with his professionalism and diligence!! There is no other like him! It goes without saying that he truly has his clients best interest at heart. He always responded to my text or emails in seconds! Which to me was huge! He always kept us informed and updated on what was happening. He went above his duties to make sure everything went well and smoothly for our sell. I can not thank him enough for everything he did for our family! He was our ANGEL!! If I ever sell another property Thomas is our guy!! He’s simply the best!!

Thomas Hennessy is the best real estate agent I have ever worked with. Thomas is deeply knowledgeable in all phases of real estate sales for private homes and was an invaluable and dedicated advisor throughout the challenging process of selling our home. From the first moment of assessing the house and explaining what needed to be taken care through the real estate contract, to creating an amazing sell sheet and photos for our open house, Thomas was truly on on all points. Given all the twists and turns of offers from potential buyers trying to clear mortgage hurdles he helped us get through what could have been a very frustrating ordeal. As we learned every house sale is a complex transaction, but we got it all done with Thomas help. We got our asking price and found a family that really wanted to live in our loved old home. What is truly amazing about Thomas is that he is kind, patient, tireless and resourceful when we faced the many issues. He knows Yonkers and south Westchester and is the person to list your house. I highly recommend working with him.
- June 28, 2019
It was an absolute pleasure working with Thomas Hennessy. Besides the fact that he is very knowledgeable in his profession, he is also extremely diligent and responsive to ones needs. He was on top of every question & every problem. Truly impressed with the service he provided to me. We hit a couple bumps along the process and Thomas went above and beyond to make the deal happen. I am eternally grateful to have had someone like Thomas on my side.
- June 24, 2019
Attentive, Professional and Aggressive- just what I needed in the sale of my property in Yonkers. Thomas did an awesome job and I would recommend him to anyone.
- April 7, 2019
Thomas was the perfect help to find my first home . He is knowable and honest.
He guided me from beginning to end with respect, professionalism and prompt response to all my requests.
Always on top of everything in order to meet my needs as buyer. I couldn’t ask for better agent in this process.
- March 11, 2019
Tom, is the best, he always looked for our best interest in negotiating the deal, always he’s prompt in his efforts to get the best for us. Tom will be the only real estate brokers I deal with thru my lifetime. Thank you Tom.
- March 1, 2019
Thomas Hennessy made one of the most stressful events our family ever had to do a breeze! We owned the house for over 50 years. Thomas was patient and an excellent communicator. He helped us with everything and went out of his way treating my family with patience and kindness all the way. I would recommend anyone to have Thomas Hennessy be their Realtor. He priced the house at the right price and made sure the house closed in a timely manner. And again Thomas... Thank you so much for treating my mother like gold.
- October 31, 2018
Tom is an excellent and knowledgeable real estate agent. He knows the Yonkers real estate market very well. Tom as shown my family many houses in Yonkers and has been very patient with us throughout the process. He never pressures us to make a decision on any of the listing. He always wanted what is best for this client. Tom did an excellent job in negotiating the price for the house we bought. There were many bids above the asking price, he spent the time to run the comps around the area and advised us on what the best offer we should make. He went above and beyond to take the time researching the property. Tom went into the build department to get information on the property to ensure the information listed by the listing agent is correct and legal. I would not hesitate to recommend Tom to my family and friends.
- October 31, 2018
We were impressed with Tom Hennessy's thoroughness, reliability, and professionalism from the first day he came to our home until the day we closed our sale and the purchase of our new home. He was the most committed and personable broker we've ever worked with, by far. No matter how small our questions might seem, he would answer them and never make us feel as if we were taking up his time. He always behaved as if we were his priority, even tough we always knew he had many clients to deal with. A pleasure to work with Tom, and, most importantly, we got the best price for our home that we could have wished for.

"Tom is a 5 star real estate professional who is easy to work with and pays attention to detail. He stayed the course through a very trying and frustrating home buying process and went the extra mile to make sure I was well informed and prepared for each step. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking a truly professional and caring realtor. Tom, I can't thank you enough for all your hard work and dedication through a long home buying process.
- August 29, 2018
Thomas was very professional and responsible. He answered all my questions and concerns about the apartment and guided me through the process of selling my condo. Definitely, I will be contacting him in the future and recommend others to use your services as well. Thank you!
- August 8, 2018
Tom represented us in searching for a home around Westchester County. We were unsure of where we wanted to live and Tom took us around the County to ensure we found the right place. He never told us he was too busy not to set up an appointment and was very flexible around our schedule. He is very professional to deal with and he always pointed out concerns which made us feel he was looking out for our interest instead of pushing us into a quick sale.
- August 3, 2018
"Tom Hennessy is a top professional who blends a unique combination of excellent professional knowledge with strong people skills. He is the most competent realtor who understands the market and can masterfully navigate the intricate workings of all aspects of the sale of a house. He also had a network of very competent people to complete the sale (inspector, lawyer, architect). He was instrumental in helping me obtain the certificate of occupancy. The process was long and arduous, but Tom was relentless in contacting appropriate personnel and ensuring all my documents were in order. Anyone who has sold a home, will understand it is also a difficult emotional process. In this area Tom excelled. He established a trusting and supportive relationship which was essential in bringing me to the day of closing. I am grateful for all of his help. I recommend Tom most highly, knowing he will provide the client with most quality service."

"Thomas is dedicated, professional and knowledgeable. Whenever I needed to communicate with him or the sellers, he always responded and I felt comfortable throughout the home search and buying process. Thomas, thank you very much for introducing me to my new home."

Tom Hennessy was a pleasure to work with. Tom demonstrated great initiative. He was always positive and enthusiastic. Tom was consistently responsive to our needs. He was proactive with helping us to prepare the house for sale. Tom would call back immediately whenever we contacted him. Tom always made himself available to meet with us. Tom was excellent at explaining anything related to the sale of the house. He never made us feel like he was too rushed to answer all of our questions.
We highly recommend Tom Hennessy without any reservation.
We give Tom 5 stars out of 5 as a real estate broker.

He was the best Real Estate agent that I ever came across. He went far and beyond for me. He made it easy for me to sell my house. I would absolutely recommend him to my family and friends. He made a stressful situation better. He was worth the higher commission, even though I was reluctant to pay at first, but he deserved every penny.

The whole process was handled with the utmost professionalism. Tom's responsiveness, knowledge about the market, attention to detail and follow-up to questions or issues was immediate and always resolved in a timely manner. His recommendations for any real estate assistance necessary to facilitate the sale of the property from start to closing were spot on. Tom goes the extra mile for his clients and I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell property without reservation.

Tom did a GREAT job selling our house. We had some issues with the city regarding building permits and Tom lead us through the process step by step. He followed up weekly and kept us advised of any updates. He was present with the photographer to make sure everything looked perfect. There were some items left in the house after we moved out. Tom picked them up and arranged to have them shipped to our new home in NC. How about that! If you're looking for a broker to sell your house, call Tom Hennessy, you won't be disappointed.

Thomas Hennessy provided us with excellent service throughout our home buying experience between 2014-2016. Thomas was patient, kind, knowledgeable, and went above and beyond to make sure things were done correctly from beginning to end of our selection and closing process. We never felt pressured into making a purchase on a property and Thomas made sure that we weren't settling on a home as he wanted us to genuinely be happy with our purchase. Thomas was always on time for our appointments and his communication was prompt and efficient at all times. There were multiple times where Thomas would make trips to the building department to pull records, call other agents to inquire about the selling process, and even make trips to check on the property to ensure that the requirements and corrections were being met and were up to code. Thomas does everything by the book to make certain that the closing process goes smoothly and that there are no surprises when it comes down to that final day. Thomas is an excellent agent and we are so thankful to have met him as he has made our first home buying experience a wonderful one!!!!! Thank you again so much, Thomas!

As Administrator of my Dad's Estate, I was responsible for selling two properties in NYC. As I live outside of NYC, I sought the advice of a local Real Estate professional who recommended Tom Hennessy. Additionally, I am employed in the real estate industry and have working knowledge of real estate transactions. My experience with working with Tom Hennessy was excellent and I would highly recommend Tom with the opinion that I do not think a more diligent and professional Agent could be retained. Quite frankly there were times that I wondered if Tom had any other listings as he was so responsiveness day or night, week day or week end. And the very moment he received an offer, he conveyed it. It was also very clear with his negotiations that his focus was on securing the very best offer and not the fastest. And, incorporated into Tom's negotiations was his due diligence relative to the financial resources of the potential buyer. Tom would present the offer, present his review of the potential buyer's finances and then answer any and all questions I had. Tom provided all the information and clearly left the decision to me whether or not to accept the offer. In fact, the initial offer, once accepted, delayed signing the contract and the decision was made to walk away and accept an equal offer that Tom had on standby. From the first moment of working with Tom to the conclusion at the closing table, it was an excellent experience.

We worked with Thomas Hennessy on two properties and he was able to sell these properties within less than 10 days and close to the price range that we were asking for. He went above and beyond to get items resolved or moving. He was exceptional and was amazing to work with. I highly recommend him as an agent.
Sarah & Pierre - Yonkers NY

Thomas Hennessy is the consummate professional - energetic, knowledgeable, always available, and experienced. He found us exactly what we wanted on the very first day of our search. We had looked at five co-op apartments and decided that we had found one that completely met our needs. Thomas did caution us to think about it but that was not necessary because he had found us the perfect match. The next morning, he made a bid for us and it was accepted. We were especially pleased because he not only negotiated the deal but he got the asking price down by $10,000! Thomas was always on time for meetings and always responded to questions immediately. He was the perfect liaison with the Management Company of the co-op, with the co-op Board and the seller. We recommend him enthusiastically and without reservations.

Long story short, Thomas is a person you can trust and count on, not only during house hunting and purchasing process, he was great even after we close, I called him to ask him about something in the house, he came over within 30 minutes.
Thank you Tom for your help and support to find our dream house.

Thomas Hennessy 03/24/2015 Helped me sell a home. My mother passed away this past October leaving us with a home to sell. Myself and my other siblings all live out of state. We were in need of an agent fast. Tommy came highly recommended by my uncle who had done numerous transactions with. Being a real estate agent myself in NC, I interviewed more than one agent before making my decision, not just willing to go with the first agent referred to us. I chose Tommy because he demonstrated local knowledge of the market, and other skills that make a great agent. Tom proved himself as more than just an agent. He went far beyond what I could have imagined during our time of need. From frozen pipes breaking to the worst snow storms in NY history, Tom was saving the day. He was constantly checking on the vacant home to make sure everything was well. Arranged for plumbers, sheet rockers and painters when pipes froze and needed repairs a few short days prior to closing. He even bought a shovel and dug out a path for the appraiser to make his way up to the house so we would not delay the process! We closed on time and received full asking price.
If you are looking for an agent that is truly looking out for YOUR best interest, strong negotiator and very knowledgeable, look no further!!!

Thomas was extremely patient during our process and was always willing to give us insight. He is very knowledgeable regarding his craft and we've seen him challenge others who weren't. I would strongly recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a home. You can't go wrong with Thomas.
