Get to know Tom Bertog
After attending school in 1987 at UWP, Tom found his way out to Southern California and immediately obtained his real estate license. As a newly licensed agent in 1989 he went straight into new home sales with Taylor Woodrow Homes in Laguna Niguel, one of the more prominent builders in the business.
After years of success in the new homes market with Taylor Woodrow Homes the final build out phases of the development were inevitably coming to a close. With his strong relationships and ties in the community, getting involved in the residential resale market was Tom's natural next step. By combining his new home sales experience and new home construction and customer service he quickly found success selling homes all across south Orange County. Today, Tom is a 24 year veteran of the south Orange County real estate industry; he attributes his success and reputation to his optimistic approach and sincere commitment to helping his clients fulfill their real estate needs.

Testimonials for Tom Bertog
Tom Bertog was my realtor for the sale of my home and a purchase of a new home. The purchase of the home was such a smooth transaction. I have never had such an easy purchase. So many details were taken care of for me and he was always at least 2 steps ahead of me making sure everything was being done in a proper way.
The sale of the home took a little longer than anticipated because the housing market value was just declining. Tom kept me completely informed along the way on market conditions and kept a positive attitude the three months it took to sell the house. He did everything in his power to sell the house just shy of buying it himself!
I would definitely use Tom Bertog as my realtor again. Thanks Tom!"
