Tom Rochford Real Estate Company was founded in December 1992, by Tom Rochford to provide professional excellence for all types of real estate transactions. From 1992 to the present, Tom has provided one-to-one professional advice and residential brokerage services to individual homeowners and buyers throughout the Bay Area. In 1995 Tom met Peter Branagh, one of the Bay Area’s premier custom home builders, and through their friendship, as well as Tom’s extensive background in construction, a professional bond was formed. Over the years Tom has listed and sold dozens of multi-million dollar homes constructed by Branagh. In addition, Tom listed and sold Peter’s former residences in Sander’s Ranch (Moraga) and recently sold Peter’s residence in Springhill Manor section of Lafayette to a celebrity buyer. Tom also sold Peter’s mother’s home in Jones Ranch (Alamo), each of these homes sold for record high prices in their respective developments. Over the years Tom has gained a reputation for pricing and selling homes for their maximum fair market value.

The office support staff includes highly skilled associates who have the technical expertise to assist our agents in all aspects of the real estate transaction. In addition Tom Rochford Real Estate Company is an Advisory Board Member of the Real Estate Cyberspace Society and makes maximum use of the internet and online services all for the benefit of our clients.
Our small but powerful company allows us to be independent, yet work as a team to brainstorm and arrive at ideas to successfully complete the transaction. We can carefully focus on each client's special circumstance and the character of the property. We provide a tailor made marketing plan, and design ads to find the most effective way to seek a buyer. All of our listings are entered on the Internet, several Bay Area Multiple Listing Services, as well as direct and electronic mailings.
Tom Rochford Real Estate Company is respected by other Realtors as a highly professional organization and we find it extremely important to stay in touch with other top producers. We are members of a large professional group of small real estate companies which continually updates its members on changes in laws and new trends affecting the industry. We also participate in monthly marketing meetings with Lamorinda’s top producing agents and brokers. We are able to provide worldwide relocation information.
Our past client's satisfaction is our best referral system and reflects our goal of providing excellence in real estate. I look forward to counting you as one of our clients and friends.
