Tom is an amazing realtor! It was my husband’s and my first time buying a house and we couldn’t have imagined a better realtor to use. He helped us every step of the way and would immediately answer any question we had. We were very impressed by his timeliness and willingness to help. Tom spent an entire day taking us around Beaufort and Bluffton to see the houses. He went above and beyond for us. He would examine the house while we walked around and would point out anything that seemed wrong or suspicious. We really appreciated his honesty. After all of the papers have been signed, he has made a point to check up and see how everything is going. Tom really loves what he does and it shows. When it is time for us to move, we will definitely be using him again!


My husband and I began kicking around the idea of a 2nd home purchase near Beaufort SC, as we had fallen in love with the charming little town and surrounding area after a short vacation there. We actually found Tom through a Zillow search after sending out a request for information. Tom responded immediately, even though the request was sent late Sunday night. We found Tom to be available whenever we needed him throughout our search, to answer questions, provide insight, and make recommendations regarding the real estate market and available homes. Tom is a true professional who loves what he does and he does it very well. He actually listened to what we wanted and did not waste our time showing us homes that we wouldn't like or that were above our price range. Tom went above and beyond for us; he answered texts and emails promptly, and got answers to our numerous questions almost before we asked them. We are over the moon with our little beach retreat!! Thank you Tom.

Tom Wheland is an amazing Realtor! He worked very hard to find my wife and I the perfect home and negotiate the price and all details beautifully for us. Tom was available whenever we needed him. He went above and beyond for all our home buying needs. He provided great insight into everything we had questions about. He is a so easy to talk to and is very knowledgeable about the area and the real estate market. He also worked closely with the seller agent and our mortgage company to make sure our home closing was on time and done correctly. He is well known and respected in the area which makes it much easier to view homes for sale and work with seller agents and mortgage companies. I would recommend him to anyone as I know he will go above and beyond all his clients needs and expectations. He made our home buying experience a great experience. He even surprised us with a beautiful gift hanging on our door he had purchased just for us because he knew we would enjoy it a new beautiful book on low-country plantations. If you want an excellent agent that will fulfill ALL your real estate needs give Tom Wheland a call. He will make you feel like you are his only client he gives such great care and attention and devotion to you and your home buying needs his dedication and love for what he does shines through. He greatly enjoys helping his clients find their ideal home!- The Hillpot Family


I have recommended Tom Wheland as a realtor, and will continue to recommend him. He found a great house for me at a great price. It's my understanding that the seller was equally satisfied. It has been several months since closing and I still have correspondence with him. He's full service and on the off chance I ever decide to sell, he's the realtor I would list it with. I think you're a pro that really understands the needs and wants of your clients. Thank you again and again. Matt B.


In December 2009, on impulse while on vacation, we stopped in Tom Wheland's real estate office to get some info on homes for sale in the local market. We had dreamed of a beach home someday but had taken no serious action. Tom , was not pushy at all but rather handed us a list of homes and said he'd be happy to show any of them if and when we decided to look. On that trip, and several subsequent ones, Tom cheerfully drove us to many, many properties, pointing out a lot of interesting local history and culture. He appreciated our financial situation and stayed within our budget. He has years of experience, knew the back-roads well and more importantly, knew the local real estate market very well. Gatehouse employees greeted him by name, and with respect. He was responsive and attentive to us via long distance as we lived 8 hours away. E-mails and voice messages were answered by Tom promptly, day or night. Tom is honest, high energy, and worked tirelessly for us through the whole buying process. And he's been great to keep in touch over the past 4 years. If we ever sell, he'll be our first choice. And if we ever buy again, he's our first choice. We would recommend him to anyone who's even just thinking about buying or selling. Start with Tom Wheland as your first choice....Bob and Mia Cooper


I live in Connecticut so finding an agent was difficult when you don't have a referral. I found Tom on and called to speak with him. Tom was very personable and I felt comfortable talking to him over the phone. Tom was not the only realtor I spoke with but he was the one I felt a connection with. I was able to go online, pick what I wanted to look at and then send Tom my list. Tom was always available and took the time to email or call me back whenever I had a question. When I went to SC at Christmas time Tom met with me and showed me around every property on my list. Two days before I was scheduled to leave I came across a piece of property on the water in St. Helena. I fell in love with it and asked Tom to put in an offer. After some back and forth I had my property. No pressure. I will recommend Tom to everyone.

We recommend Tom to everyone. He went above and beyond what we expected from a realtor. We had had a few and moved on for various reasons like lack of information, being un-professional, and lack of work ethic. Tom listened to what we wanted and not only looked for homes we may have been interested in but when we showed interest he would take a trip out to see them prior to showing them to us to be sure we were not wasting our time. He showed years of knowledge, professional through out and was willing to drive any where to fulfill his clients needs. We looked a many different price ranges and he never once treated us different. I would recommend him to those with very little money to those with great wealth, they all will receive his million dollar attitude and smile. Thanks Tom


I first met Tom 15 years ago in the Beaufort area (we're from Ohio) and had talked to him from time to time about purchasing a second home. When the time came, I turned to Tom and he found a number of suitable homes, one of which we recently closed on. Tom has the personal touch, is very knowledgeable and steers you appropriately on price/availability/long term value. We are very happy customers.

My husband and I strongly recommend Tom Wheland to our friends as a realtor. We live several states away and decided to buy a vacation home on the beach. When we first started looking for houses, we found one of interest on Tom responded to my inquiry quickly and we scheduled a visit to look at some homes on Fripp Island. I felt he was very attentive to what we were looking for in a home and stayed in our price range. He was honest about each of the homes we visited. When we found our perfect home we couldn’t have asked for better service. We always knew what the next step would be and he was always available to advise us.

Tom Wheland was great, he was fast to respond, and kept me informed throughout the offer process. Once we had a contract agreement, he went above and beyond to make sure all the aspects of closing were coming together. I'm so glad I found him on Zillow.
