Tom Bracey, RE/MAX Concepts
I was born and raised in a farming area in Michigan and moved to the Quad Cities in 1980 teaching and coaching middle school for the Davenport Schools for 14 years. I earned a Bachelor's degree from Central Michigan University and a Master's degree from Western Illinois University. I married my lovely wife Connie in 1989. Connie has a Master's Degree in counseling. We have two awesome children: Our daughter Erin lives in Colorado with her husband Andrew and daughter Haylee; our first grandchild! Our son Collin graduated from Augustana College here locally where he majored in Spanish and Journalism. He is currently substitute teaching and working on getting his real estate license.
We live in Blue Grass, IA and enjoy time at our lake home at Oak Run in Illinois as we love to boat and just relax with our friends. We love our two cats Max and Willie!
I have been a licensed Realtor for 37 years here in the Quad Cities and enjoy my newest challenge helping manage and train agents and grow our RE/MAX Concepts office while still serving my clients as an active Realtor. I have also recently become certified and licensed in both IA and IL to teach real estate continuing education and have been teaching classes for our local board of Realtors. I would look forward to serving you!

So... he sold our house in a day (for much more than I thought we would ever get) and helped us close on our new house very quickly. He even found an electrician and a roofer to make some minor repairs to the new house to help keep things moving along.
He was calm for us in the middle of a very stressful situation.
If we called him, he either answered or got back to us the same day.
I've heard people say realtors don't do enough for what they get, this one does. He's a pro and you should hire him. - Chad T.
Tom is by far the most responsive and knowledgeable realtor that we have ever dealt with. We met Tom while looking at a house that he was showing. We were so impressed by his honesty and expertise that we decided to have him represent us as well. He is definitely not a 9-5 realtor. Day, night, and weekends, he was always quick to respond and we always seemed to be the first in at new listings. He was full of great ideas when it was time to get our house ready for sale. Even the handful of contractors we dealt with seemed to know Tom and had nothing but good things to say about him. With Toms help, we were able to get our house sold in two days. We would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. - Matt B.
Tom did a fantastic job, both showing us new houses, and selling our current house. The process of buying and selling can be stressful, however with Tom representing us the process was a smooth and enjoyable one. One of the best things about working with Tom was his ability to ask the right questions. Several times we would be walking thru a property and he would ask something I had never considered but was glad he thought of it. If you are buying or selling you want Tom on your side. - Kris P.
From start to finish, Tom was the calming and reassuring guide that we needed throughout our home selling process. He touched base often as we prepared our home for market, and was the "voice of reason" on more than one occasion. - lkwelch
We had just sold our home, and we needed to find a home quickly. Tom helped us find a brand new home, right where we wanted to be, and we were even able to pick out flooring and paint colors. It turned out to be a great home for our family. I'd recommend Tom to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in any price range, even new construction. - John C.
My family recommended Tom to my husband and myself when we relocated from Ohio to Iowa. We moved from a home to a condo. The communications were key being long distance home hunters. We were always impresssed with the timeliness of his actions and responses, as well as our concerns being handled so professionally. Buying the condo was a pleasant experience, thanks to Tom. After five years of condo living, we decided to sell and find a home that would be closer to my family. We had heard selling a condo could be difficult. Not for Tom !!! “Call it Sold” !!! If he can’t do it - no one can. We have found Tom Bracey to be the BEST. Buying or selling, it doesn’t matter because he is the MOST knowledgeable realtor, the GREATEST negotiator, and our experience with him has actually been enjoyable during some stressful times. We are so happy he is our realtor. We highly recommend Tom Bracey. - Sue W.
