"Tom and Sharon Salet are the best! We were first time homebuyers, and Tom and Sharon were beyond patient with us over the course of our year long search. After months of searching, we were convinced that a home in our desired neighborhood was outside of our reach. However, Tom and Sharon were convinced that we would find something we loved, and sure enough they were right! Their local knowledge of the area is unparalleled. They spent countless weekends with us viewing homes, and hours on the phone answering our endless stream of questions; really so much more than anyone could ask of their agents. As first time homebuyers, Tom and Sharon provided us with honest evaluations of properties and the market, and provided us with realistic expectations in our efforts to purchase our first home. Our connection with Tom and Sharon’s has gone beyond the close of the sale. They have followed up with phone calls to check in, and connected us with top quality local contractors for all of our renovation needs, which was really amazing being new to the area. Thank you Tom and Sharon for all that you have done for us across this long journey; we can’t imagine having done it with anybody else!”

"Tom & Sharon Salet have represented me on three different occasions. Each time they were diligent in their work, helpful in every aspect of the transactions, patient and above all fair. Whenever I had a question or concern they were there for me. Since they are a team, you actually have two people working for you instead of one. They’re hard working Realtors who really care about each and every client they help and I would recommend them highly to anyone who was in need of their services”
- Bob Dalporto
"Tom and Sharon are the best team of realtors we have ever worked with. They are very hands on in their support: set up multiple contractors/handyman to fix up our house before selling, regularly checked in with us, and were always responsive to our questions/calls. You can tell they have been realtors for a long time because they have a great network: they were able to get us into multiple places before they were listed because of their connections. They are thorough on contracts and forms and because of their vast experience everything went smoothly. We can’t say enough about Tom and Sharon!”
- Tad and Emily Costerison
"Working with Sharon and Tom was a great experience for us. Selling and buying a home is not always a stress free experience, but Sharon and Tom always made us feel at ease. They went out of their way to accommodate our needs and most importantly do what was in our best interest. In the future we will always go to them for our real estate needs and will recommend Sharon and Tom to our family and friends.”
- Keith and Meredith Holden
"We were referred to Tom and Sharon from a friend of ours, and we are very thankful that we got that referral! At every point in our home buying process, either Tom or Sharon have been there to help us with answers quickly and happily. Tom was willing to show us houses in every neighborhood that we asked. He suggested things that we may not have thought of and was always willing to answer any questions we had. Both Tom and Sharon were very helpful in explaining the home-buying process to us, giving us wonderful guidance to make the process as easy as possible. We can't recommend them highly enough! If you're lucky enough to get these two as your Realtors, you're in great shape! We're very happy in our new house and we have Tom and Sharon to thank!”

"We bought our first home, sold it, and bought our second home with Sharon and Tom Salet. All I can say is hands down Sharon and Tom Salet are the best. They work together as a team and we never thought we'd sell and buy as fast as we did. They did everything they promised and always kept us informed. They made us feel as if we were their only clients and they were always honest and forthcoming with information. If you are looking for someone to do their job with integrity and passion I will definitely recommend them.”

"When my wife and I began looking at homes, we thought we would never be able to afford to buy a house where we wanted to and we considered buying condos in less desirable neighborhoods. This was when Tom and Sharon got involved. Coming highly recommended, we called the Salets to help us negotiate a deal on something that two public school teachers could afford. To our amazement, Tom and Sharon proved to us that we could buy a single family home in our preferred neighborhood after they negotiated aggressively with the sellers. The result was that Tom and Sharon negotiated a price low enough that we were able to buy a home exactly where we wanted and we still had enough money left over to pay for the necessary improvements. This was a dream come true and I don’t believe it would have been possible without the Salets. I simply cannot recommend Tom and Sharon highly enough.”

"My husband and I have recently had the good fortune to enlist Tom and Sharon Salet’s expertise in selling a family home. This was not an easy undertaking as there were two other families involved in this sale. It took several months to obtain all the necessary documents as one family lives in another state. Tom diligently took on the task of dealing with the multiple opinions and concerns while Sharon dealt with all the necessary documents. Neither being an easy task. Tom and Sharon being the very special team that they are not only took a business interest but also a personal interest to insure that all three families had all of their specific concerns met. We were able to sell the home shortly after because of Tom and Sharon’s dedication and caring. We will always have a special place in our hearts for Tom and Sharon.”

"When we made the decision to move from the East Bay to Half Moon Bay, CA. last September, we wanted to work with a realtor or real estate team who had solid years of experience with the Coastside area. Our research pointed us to Tom and Sharon Salet with the Alain Pinel office in Half Moon Bay. We found Tom and Sharon to be extremely knowledgeable with this area. We gave them our parameters for a home, the neighborhoods along the coast that we would consider, and our purchase price range. With limited availability meeting our criteria, it took some time. They applied no pressure for us to consider anything or areas other than those we had specified. Once we found a home that we liked, Tom and Sharon continued to be a pleasure to work with. They made themselves available, they were very responsive, professional, and efficient in all matters with regards to the purchase of our new home. They work very well as a team and complemented each other with handling the transaction that closed in December. Having resided in Half Moon Bay for many years, they have a wealth of knowledge about the area, from restaurants, to resources and professional contacts. We would say they “go above and beyond”. We know that Tom and Sharon have expanded their business to other Bay Area communities, in addition to the Coastside area, and we highly recommend this Team for your real estate needs."

"My husband and I were in the midst of a disastrous home sale when we met Tom Salet at an open house. We immediately observed that Tom had a genuine sincerity and competency absent from the agent we were currently working with. After meeting Sharon, who was equally sincere and well qualified, and speaking with the Salet’s at length about our current situation we decided to switch realtors and list our home with them. We also made them our buying agents. It was the best decision we ever made. Tom and Sharon provided us with a thorough appraisal of our home and made critical suggestions for increasing visual appeal to potential buyers. Within a few weeks we had a solid offer on our home that was above asking price! After going through months of frustrating exchanged with our previous agent we could not believe how efficient and effective Tom and Sharon were in handling the sale of our home. When it came to purchasing our new home Tom and Sharon again proved their worth in negotiating the terms of our purchase. The Salet’s took a sincere interest in us and our situation and shepherd us through what can be a very intimidating and dismal process with a level of care and concern rarely found in the real estate industry. If you are looking for savvy and sincere agents, whether selling our purchasing a home, Tom and Sharon will exceed your expectations.”
