Thomas made the selling of our father's home and estate as simple and beautiful as we could have hoped for. He had great suggestions about preparing the house for sale, and a doable checklist for us to complete. He put together an amazing slideshow and drone footage that really showed our property in it's best light. Thomas had the connections and clients that were perfectly suited for this unusual property. We had a fabulous offer on the first day the house was being shown. Thomas handled all of the negotiations for us, so we didn't have to handle anything unpleasant. He was completely professional, yet very approachable. I found him to be kind and down to earth. He gave us great advice along the way. We are really grateful for his leadership and guidance in the selling of our property. I would highly recommend him.
Negotiations were more than expected in this nutty market. Thomas knew his stuff! And Cara was super - communicating back and forth on showings, closing, and answering all questions.
When you are trying to sell a house in a difficult market, it is so good to know that you have the best people in that market helping you. It gives you so much confidence to know that what you are doing is being done right, and you are not making big mistakes with one of the biggest decisions you make in your life. Their photography of my home was far superior to anything we have seen in our search for a new home. We have been so impressed! We sold a unique property that would not appeal to all buyers. They got it sold with no problem. Our experience with Thomas and Cara has been a very positive one throughout the whole process. We have thoroughly enjoyed working with them, and getting to know their fun personalities, which makes it that much more of a positive experience.
Thomas Wright helped our family find our dream home! My wife and I desperately wanted to be in a specific neighborhood/community and Thomas made it happen. He also streamlined the purchasing process and made it effortless for us. I highly recommend Thomas and his team!
Thomas and his team did an outstanding job helping us through our transition. Great understanding of an evolving housing market, thorough understanding of the various neighborhoods, and quickly understood and adapted to our priorities.

Thomas knows real estate! His agency has the process down to a science! The pictures they take of the property are fantastic! Thomas is a PRO! Thomas advised us what to do and not to do when it comes to improving the home prior to the sale! I am very pleased that we chose Thomas and Sotheby's!
Thomas is what I consider to be the best real estate agent in the state. He has helped us purchase 2 new homes and sell 1 in our 10 years in the state.
Thomas will absolutely get you the house you want at the best price available, and will make sure your home-buying experience is what it should be. He will ensure everything in the process runs smoothly and with very little heart-ache for the buyer.
As a seller, we had Thomas walk through our home, give us direction on how to set things up for pictures, and discussed a listing price. That first weekend we had 5 appointments for walkthroughs and a full price offer on the following Monday.
10/10 would recommend to ANYONE who needs to purchase or sell a home.
Thomas and his team were excellent. In just over a month, we had an offer on our home that ultimately closed. They were responsive to every question and concern. I I would recommend Thomas and his team to anyone.
From start to finish, Thomas Wright and his team did an exceptional job working with us on everything from marketing our home online/via direct mail pieces--to showing our home to negotiating a final deal/closing the sale of our home. Thomas and his assistant were incredibly knowledgeable, professional and made the entire process literally pain free.
Several homes in our neighborhood were hardly showing and had been on the market for months--Thomas was showing our home on almost a weekly basis and sold it within a month and a half. Last but not least, I was dreading having to show our home but again Thomas and his assistant were respectful and attentive to our family's needs--rescheduling showings, grouping visits together to ensure we weren't bombarded. I literally cannot say enough about our work with Thomas--he is an incredibly capable, proactive, meticulous, professional. We will definitely work with with him again.
I would recommend Thomas Wright as the best real estate I have ever worked with! Our home sale was quite complicated and we needed an experienced negotiator. Our 11,000 ft home took time to sell, but Thomas had our back at every turn, giving us advice but ultimately letting us decide what we wanted to do. His good natured, professional attitude made working with him a pleasure!! I will never need to look for another realtor as Thomas exceeded our needs!!

Thomas was very knowledgeable, professional, and extremely helpful in ever aspect of the sale. We got a lot more money than we expected because of his expertise and negotiating skills as well! I will never sell or buy another property without using Thomas. He is a complete expert in every way imaginable.
We have used Thomas in multiple purchase and sale transactions. He has provided outstanding advice and service - we recommend him very highly. He knows the Salt Lake market extremely well and his team of professionals are also very responsive.
Thomas is the consummate professional: knowledgeable about the market, personable, and a skillful negotiator. I would choose to have Thomas on my side every time.
We have used Thomas on 5 real estate deals, he has done the job well and sold our homes in a timely manner. We will use him again if the need arises. He sold our house and helped purchase a condo with us living out of town and during the COVID 19 pandemic.
