Matt and Tiffany Thomas founded Thomas Group Realty with the vision of creating Gainesville’s most exclusive boutique real estate agency serving both residential and commercial customers in the Gainesville metro area.
The vision was simple – create a team of Gainesville’s top Realtors with the highest standards of ethics and customer service, and offer every customer a personal, “hands-on” approach to real estate transactions.
Thomas Group Realty is a family owned and operated local business, and our slogan is “Where Customers are Family,” because we aim to treat every customer as if they were a member of our own family.
Jean Chalmers is highly experienced, professional, personable and exceedingly well connected in the Gainesville community. Her knowledge really makes a difference in arranging a broad range of high-quality repair or renovation services at extremely competitive prices. I’ve worked with Jean on both buying and selling my home in Gainesville and would recommend her to anyone.

I just wanted to let you know what a dedicated and wonderful agent you have in Diane Mahaffey. I am transferring with my company to Gainesville and our relocation department put me in touch with Diane. She was a tremendous help and a true professional that eased my stress in a very stressful and hectic situation.
After finally selling our property in another state and extensive 1.5-year search on the web, we had a firm list of wants and don’t wants. Bill was very honest about the pros and cons of each property he showed us. He kept us informed every step of the way in a prompt and professional manner. Highly, highly recommended!
My family has had the good fortune to have Liz represent us in the sale of one home and the purchase of another home. Liz is extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of real estate. Liz is prompt, efficient and understands the clients needs. Liz went above and beyond for my family and we certainly recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home. Grade A+++++
Mona always showed a professional and positive attitude in resolving all of the issues that came our way. Through her knowledge and great communication skills, Mona consistently provided me and my husband with all the information that we needed until the closing date. It has been a pleasure to have Mona’s help and I will certainly recommend her to other customers in the near future.
Cynthia worked the impossible! I came to her with a few pieces of paper describing some property I owned in Alachua. I wasn’t even sure where it was. She put me under her wings and made the sale! She was excellent and I would definitely recommend her to anyone again.
Lore Davis was a great fit for us from start to finish. A close friend of mine recommended Lore to us and I know why. She was amazing from start to finish and help find the neighborhood of our dreams. It was a great experience and I would do it all over again.
My agent, Cynthia Grace, went above and beyond her job specifications to make sure we received the best possible care and understanding of a home purchase. She is the best!
Cynthia went above and beyond more than once for us. I would like to thank her for all of the extra things that she did for us.

Matt Thomas represented me in the recent sale of my house in Longleaf. He sold my house BEFORE IT WAS EVEN LISTED at a great value for the neighborhood! Go Matt!
Gigi was amazing in her marketing techniques and organized so well nothing was missed or lax in any degree. She is a wonderful, caring person and has a high regard and respect to my needs. I would do it all over again with her. In this market, what she has done for us is no less than amazing! Thank You!
When I went to look at the model center in Longleaf, I was immediately greeted with a smile and genuine warmth from Tiffany. She was open, honest, and friendly. I am so happy that I built a Tommy Williams home in Longleaf and I had a very positive experience throughout this process. The peace of mind I feel over the home and options I have selected in Longleaf (with Tiffany’s help of course) cannot be put into words.
Evelyn interviewed us over the phone to determine what exactly we were looking for in terms of acreage, location, price, and most importantly, the character of the property. The very first property that Evelyn took us to was exactly what we were looking for. Thanks to Evelyn for helping make this dream come true.
Cynthia is wonderful!! She worked really hard for us and I would use her as my agent again–most definitely!
Robert & Sally Dievert
Our house was on the market “by owner” and Diane Mahaffey showed it to her prospective buyers. She called me that evening to tell me how much the buyers liked our home. She was very professional and pleasant. Our house closed very quickly and Diane made that happen. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Gainesville area. She goes above and beyond!
I have purchased and sold a number of residences through Jean Chalmers. Each experience has been a testimony to the fact that she is thoroughly familiar with community resources, has impeccable taste, is always pleasant to deal with, and readily available for meetings. She’s a great realtor!
Sandra M. Lamme
Jean Chalmers is our realtor and we wouldn’t use any other. We bought the perfect house through her. There was no fuss and no bother. She made sure that all went quickly and smoothly. We sold our original house through her to a lovely couple who are fine neighbors.
Anne and Phil Haisley
We have explored real estate markets in different states and had experience with different agents. So far Lore is the best we’ve met. She works diligently, always responds in a timely manner, and gives wise advice. We end up purchasing a home that both my wife and I love and her knowledge and skill make the negotiation and closing process very smooth.
Jean was wonderful and helped us get the home we are really delighted with. Given that we had to deal with the house closing long distance, she was able to ably represent us during all the important aspects of our home purchase. And it didn’t end there. Following the closing, she with many of things that inevitably arise after the purchase of an older home. She is a true credit to her profession.
They were excellent help with feedback on the market and the local listings. They showed me multiple properties that were the best investment for me. I felt as if they really cared about my personal needs. Overall it was a great experience and now I have a great home. Thank you, Lore and Eric, and thank you Thomas Group Realty!
Mr. & Mrs. Alex
Jean Chalmers has sold our home and a separate parcel of land for us. She is calm, and thorough, and inspires confidence. In addition, she is a delight to work with and has a wonderful personality.

Liz was indeed one of the best realtors I have worked with. Liz negotiated with several difficult and doubtful buyers until we finally received an excellent offer. Because of Liz, the house sold in a few months for the best possible price.
My wife and I bought our first house a week ago and Matt was our realtor. He was great; he answered all our questions. We would email him and there was a fast respond time. Very professional and laid back; never demanded anything from us and also on top of things. I would highly recommend Matt and his team.
Matt exceeded my expectations truly in every way. He is such a step up from agents I have interacted with in the past. I would highly recommend working with him to all of my family and close friends.
Liz is the best real estate agent we have ever had. Her depth of knowledge of the Gainesville area is amazing. She helped us immensely with the closing process and made buying our house in Gainesville a breeze despite the fact that we were from out of town (in fact, out of the country). We highly recommend Liz Pooley for all your real estate needs in the Gainesville area.
Evelyn sold our home with passion and perseverance. She kept us well informed and truly worked for us! She gave us feedback during the entire process, which helped us to get the most for our home. Thank you for a wonderfully professional experience!
Gigi was very pleasant to work with. She is very knowledgeable of the local market. Keep up the good work, Gigi!
I have used Tom Bellucci for my last four real estate transactions. I could list a dozen reasons why but they all come back to one point…he’s the consummate professional. I’ve referred a number of friends to Tom. Tom will be my real estate professional until one of us leaves this Earth and I’m in no hurry for that!
Gigi was fantastic to work with. I look forward to our next transaction. Thanks!
I have known Tom as a businessman for over 20 years. When I was offered a position in Gainesville there was no hesitation on my part choosing a realtor knowing Tom was in the area. I have referred several other friends to Tom who have bought homes with him as their realtor. Tom is a man of high character and I appreciated working with him.
I feel very lucky to have had Matt as my buyer agent. He was a professional and a very nice guy. He was very patient, listened to my demands, and guided me through the whole procedure of purchasing a home. Thank you so so much for all your kind help, Matt!
Mona has been very helpful in locating a home for my wife and I over the last week and she has helped us in previous years as we listed our former home for sale. Mona has always been willing at a moments notice to assist us in the real estate market in the past, very professional and courteous in every way.
We cannot recommend more highly Lore or Eric, they did an excellent job and have the highest standards. We appreciate so much how they handled the sale of our home. Thanks, Lore & Eric!
Leo & Ann Coutu
Mr. Mahaffey maintained close communication, researched and answered any and all questions I have had, both before and after the sale. I, therefore, give Dick my strongest recommendation for residential real estate services in Gainesville.
Matt Thomas has been nothing short of amazing to work with. As a first-time home buyer, I reached out to Matt based on the recommendation of a friend. Matt was quick to respond to my first request, and I never looked back. Matt and I connected right away and he listened to my entire wishlist. I know I can expect great professionalism and expertise from the Thomas Group!
First, perfect handling of a client looking to purchase our home. Through all the ups and downs, Eric and Lore hung in there and ended up with the sale. Second, a well thought out and delivered synopsis of the current market gave the seller the courage to sell their condo which we fell in love with upon initial visit. It was exactly what we were looking for.
Bill & Anne Pettinato
Cynthia was really great! She was very attentive before closing, during and continues to be so. She has been really helpful and dedicated to her clients.
It was another great experience dealing with Matt Thomas in our recent real estate transaction. I had the pleasure of meeting Matt and Tiffany 6 years ago when we purchased our condo for my daughter while attending UF. I can’t thank you enough for everything.
Of the three realtors I have worked with so far, Matt far exceeds the standard set by the other two. He was always available via text or email, typically responding within the hour if not immediately. He helped us purchase a property that was not yet on the market for $11,000 under list price. We will undoubtedly be using Matt again in the future!
As a first time homebuyer, I was on the verge of making a very poor real estate investment when I turned to Tiffany for guidance. She quickly demonstrated it was an imprudent deal and I walked away. Months later she helped me purchase my home in the Duckpond- which I love! I highly recommend her.
We recently purchased a home in Gainesville after relocating from Kentucky. Tom came highly recommended and from the first conversation, I knew we had the right realtor. Throughout the entire process (Tom helped us find temporary housing while we searched for the right home), Tom was patient, compassionate, professional and treated us as if we were his own family!
Evelyn has a positive can-do attitude which is exhibited by her willingness to assist the seller, in this case myself, by offering ideas, suggestions and overall forward thinking in placing the above property on the market. I would recommend Evelyn to any prospective buyer or seller of a residential property.
Mona helped me and stood by me completely from the first walk through of my house to the closing and turning the keys over to the new buyer. Other than knowledge of being a great and trusting agent, she has a wonderful personality and charisma that goes above and beyond who she is. I would highly recommend Mona for her honesty, knowledge and expertise.
Lore Davis is an excellent Realtor. She was with us every step of the way, and offered very helpful advice and support, since this is our first home. I would highly recommend the Thomas Group for anyone looking for a home.
As a long time resident of Gainesville, Cynthia really knows her community and we felt that we were in very good hands. She was very patient and kind during our search and helped us find the right home for our growing family. We would strongly recommend Cynthia to those looking for a place to call home in Gainesville.
Emily & Nick Villegas
Matt was an incredible Realtor – we actually used him for both buying & selling our home! His expertise & knowledge of Gainesville is invaluable in the real estate experience. As an added bonus, he’s a great guy & will truly make your experience a pleasure!
Bill listened to what we wanted and never tried to press his views. He used his knowledge and experience in the local market to help guide us with our decisions with the pros and cons of a number of different issues you look at while selecting a home. We recommend that if you are looking to buy or sell in this market you give Bill a call.
