A typical day in my life…

No such thing as a typical day. They're all different. I might have three listing appointments in a day and other days none. I talk to most of our agents every day getting updates on our working deals. Many days I'm out flying our acreage properties with our drone. I spend hours creating videos for our listings. Some days are so hectic I can't come up for air but other days are much slower. On those day I'm always experimenting with new software for social media and also learning how to better promote our listings.

I was born…

I was born in Fort Worth, Texas and proud to be a native Texan. I grew up in Richardson then went away to college at the University of Arkansas. I came back to Dallas and completed my Masters Degree at the University of North Texas. After spending several years in the oil business in both Oklahoma and Mississippi, I came back to Dallas again and happily have never left.

My favorite thing about Texas…

Texans are friendly. They wave, smile, and will engage in a conversation with a perfect stranger. I can't imagine it being any other way but I'm told all the time people from other parts of the country are suspicious when they move to Texas and experience that. They're taken off guard wondering what someone wants from them. Texans think big in everything we do and we're proud of our big state. I was 6 when I learned Texas was only the second largest state in the country. I still remember feeling sad about that. Even back then I had a lot of pride being a Texan.

I’m listening to…

YouTube (World War Two documentaries, true crime mysteries, stories about the Mafia, police activity) The music I listen to is mainly from the late 60's through the 70's

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

Dwight D. Eisenhower, supreme commander of the Allied forces in western Europe during World War II. I'd love to talk to him about the build up to D-day and also his tough decision as to what day it would actually happen. How he kept all the allied commanders, some with massive egos, all cooperating and working with each other.

My favorite food is...

Mexican.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

A tennis coach and if not that any job that wouldn't tie me to a desk. I found that in real estate and I'm always appreciative of this lifestyle.

I’m inspired by…

Those who continue learning and trying to improve themselves throughout their entire life

The one person who motivates me is…

My late father was a man of the highest integrity. At times he was brutally honest but I always knew he'd give me the right advice, even if I didn't want to hear it. I can honestly say I never heard him tell a lie

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

The senseless animosity between different races, religions, and nationalities

The perfect day would be…

Catching up on deals working on our team, posting to our social media for a couple of hours, nice lunch somewhere with Rhonda, into the pool with dogs, dinner with Rhonda and Jason, watching something on Netflix that night.

My first job was…

Working at a Dairy Queen.

My worst job was ...

A tossup between working on the freight docks and an oil field worker in Oklahoma and Mississippi.

My favorite escape…

If it's here, it's the pool. I'm in it every summer day. If it's a vacation, it would be Santa Fe or Sedona.

The one thing I wish I could really do well is...

Play golf.

The one thing I really wish I had is...

One more week with my mom, dad, and sister.

My life…

Is pretty awesome. No complaints whatsoever.

I’m currently working on…

Learning how to become more savvy with various social media platforms.

Always…

Do your best no matter what the task.

Never…

Compromise your morals for any type of gain.

Favorite Quote…

The true measure of a man is how he treats someone who can do him absolutely no good ... Samuel Johnson

Biggest Dream…

To continue building a high powered, self-sustaining, highly respected real estate team. To work in the background, watch it grow, and provide a great quality of life for everyone associated with it.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

People who take advantage of others.

Most people don't know this about me…

Although I have a new car, I still prefer to drive my 13 year old Ford Expedition (AKA "the beater") and it drives Rhonda crazy.

More about Me…

I'm not flashy in any sense of the word. With me, what you see is what you get. I'm reliable and my word is my bond. Honesty, integrity and a sense of fairness are all traits I take great pride in having. I always take the high road and try to do the right thing, whether it's appreciated or not. I'm not a socializer or networker. I prefer working in the background and behind the scenes. I've got some OCD in me and tend to be a perfectionist, but I'm working on that. I'm immensely proud of the team we've built and the quality of people who have chosen to be part of it.

Hello, I have involved The Grisak Group in my subdivision marketing for the last three years and the experience has been wonderful. I am very detailed as the industry requires this trait and I expect this from all of my consultants and vendors as well. The Grisak Group has met and exceeded all of my expectations. They are very knowledgeable and up on the market aspects and elements. We work very smoothly together. I trust them and I enjoy their presence. There are many professionals to choose from in this field and I choose The Grisak Group.

Keller Williams Grisak Group is the most professional, knowledgeable, and courteous real estate firm in the Collin County market! Having represented our family in two real estate transactions, both sales were quick and seamless through closing. One can be confident in placing your real estate needs with the Grisak Group.

My family plans to relocate to Fairview next summer. We are currently working with a realtor through our company relocation and are in the initial stages of building in Harbour Oaks. While I don’t need anything, I wanted to let you know how very helpful your website, Facebook page, videos and podcasts have proven to be in our search and selection of a location. I just finished the podcast featuring the Harbour Oaks developer and found it very interesting and informative. I know those things take time, scheduling, and often a touch of frustration :) so I just wanted to express my gratitude for a job well done. Keep up the good work!

Tom Grisak and his team of realtors listed our Lucas home and were nothing but professional. Moving and selling a family home can at times be stressful and emotional. This was greatly reduced and with Tom's expertise and guidance the transaction went smoothly. His office staff is always friendly, professional, and helpful for each part of the process. Every decision was supported and our input and wishes were respected and carried out without a hint of pressure or irritation. I can whole heartedly suggest Tom Grisak and team to handle your sale or purchase of a new home and do so with ultimate professionalism. Truly an industry leader in this area!

Leonie Moger

Tom and Rhonda and their team were spectacular realtors. From the very beginning they were extremely attentive explaining the steps, bringing in a stager to help us show our house to its very best, having an online showing application so I know in advance when a showing will occur (or having the ability to decline if absolutely necessary), and posting our photos and information everywhere it could possibly be posted including Tom's Estate Home's website. They also worked hard at finding us a new place to live. Everyone was friendly every step of the way and I would absolutely use them again!

Tom Forsythe

Tom Grisak is an experienced and respected realtor specializing in the Lucas, Fairview, Allen area. He and his team are very knowledgeable regarding the areas they serve and the real estate business in general. They treat each client as their most important one. Their knowledge and marketing skills are next to none. I have used them in the past and would recommend their services to anyone looking for a home in their area.

Jeff King

As a home seller/buyer it’s imperative that you have a partner on your side. A partner that is professional, one that is transparent, one that is an industry expert. The home selling/buying process should be made easy with your real estate partner. That’s exactly what you get when you partner with Tom Grisak Estate Home Realtors. Kelly Pearson is a true Real Estate professional and worked hard as our agent to make the process simple and easy for my wife and I. Thank you Kelly and team Grisak for your help.

Cristina Jaggers

"Thanks to the whole Tom Grisak team for your invaluable support throughout our sale process. You guys are wonderfully kind, helpful, knowledgeable, understanding and most importantly have fabulous senses of humor! You really care and go above and beyond for your clients. We couldn't have done this without you!

Mustafa Dohadwala

Extremely professional, knowledgeable, and supportive. Tom Grisak and Sean Elliott are the best realtors I have encountered in the DFW area.

Andrew Sisson

Great team of realtors and brokers. Highest professionalism. Went above and beyond my expectations when selling our home. The home photos and description were far superior to anything else on the market in our area. Highly recommend Tom and his team.

Vivek Sidharan

Excellent team. We used their service to get our home rented. They are very professional and at times quite pushy (in our representation). They got the job done and I'm thankful!

Kim Pelini

The Tom Grisak group was a pleasure to work with in the recent sale of our home. Erin Hickman and the entire staff was very professional and helpful. They introduced us to contractors to get our home ready to go on the market which was a great help. They were there throughout the process to answer our questions and overall it was a very smooth transaction.

Allison Sridharan

They are all great here! Kelly did an excellent job helping us through the process of buying our home while we were still out of state. She took the extra time to get inspectors out and show us each home. We can’t say enough good things about everyone at the Grisak Group.

Richard Konneker

This is the second time that my wife and I have dealt with the Grisak crew -the first time about 8 years ago when we sold our house, and just recently when we bought a house. Each time we got excellent service from everyone associated with Tom. This time we were specially impressed with Kelly Pearson, the Grisak agent that helped us find just the house we were looking for. She is very pleasant and quite competent, and is one of the increasingly rare people who do what they say they're going to do, when they said they'd do it, smiles when they do it, and returns your calls.

Daniel Veitch

We've lived in Lucas for about 16 years and Grisak signs are always part of the landscape. We've known the Grisaks casually for about 10 years. We've had a couple of dogs who like to hang out at their place sometimes over the years. When it was time to sell our home we had no doubt who should be our realtor. But, we did some due diligence anyway. It didn't take long to realize that Grisak was the best option. Every step of the process was top notch. Total excellence and professionalism. Communication was always timely and thorough. Advice was always well considered and helpful. All expectations were exceeded. They sold two properties for us, one in February and one in March, and both deals were flawless. Sean, Kelly and Dina were all very helpful as well as the photographer, stager and writer. Everyone did a great job. Thanks Tom and Rhonda!
