Karen and Tom did an excellent job in communicating with us. They were quick with their feedback and follow up after showings. They know the market well and set realistic expectations. They know how to deal with buyer questions and alleviate buyer concerns. Contractural negotiations went smoothly and closing was timely. They were very professional and ethical and we would highly recommend them as a buyer or selling agent. Andi Wilkinson: September 26, 2018
Tom and Karen are always a pleasure to work with.  We have sought their advice and help over the past several years and most recently in looking for a home to buy with our son and daughter-in-law.  Tom and Karen listened to what we needed and were able to help us find a home that fits our needs pretty perfectly.
The Thomas's do their research well, they know the market in the Flathead Valley and they understand how the financing and mortgage loan process works. Once we made the offer on our home they walked us through the timeline of what to expect and what was needed from us in a very professional way.  Karen kept us apprised of deadlines and made sure we understood what we needed to do.
I would and have recommended Tom and Karen Thomas to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home in the Flathead Valley.  They are the kind of people you want at your back!

I appreciated their patience and support during a difficult closing. They provided good information and the property sold in a short period of time. They were easy to contact and kept me updated. They replied quickly to my questions.

After moving from a home we had been in for over 20 years, the transitions was quite an experience for us. Our gratitude to 5 Star Realty, Tom and Karen for their wonderful assistance in creating the transitions from selling our home and then turning around and purchasing another as smooth and as easy as it was. Every situation that arose was handle with such great professionalism. Their dedication in making sure time lines were met made it very easy and assuring. We were please to know that no matter what questions or concerns we had, or what time of day or night it was, they were there to service our needs with great enthusiasm. We thank you for a successful transition in our life and making it worry free. Jim and Dorothy W.
