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.
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.

We absolutely loved our experience with Holly as our realtor. She was quick, so helpful, and made sure we were taken care of every step of the way. Highly recommend her!
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+++++
Cynthia is wonderful!! She worked really hard for us and I would use her as my agent again–most definitely!
Robert & Sally Dievert
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.
Eric & Alisa
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.
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.
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!
Holly was super helpful and knowledgeable throughout the home buying process. She helped us to have a positive and smooth experience on the purchase of our new home!

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!
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
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.
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.
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.
Jennifer went above and beyond for us. The house sold quickly due, in great part, to her efforts. Our house was quite a drive for her from her office and she made many trips to oversee proceedings and manage concerns. I highly recommend her.
Jennifer Springfield was not only knowledgeable and professional. She was compassionate of the situation surrounding the sale of my mother’s home and very conscientious of the entire family’s emotions during the sale of our family home.
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.
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 fantastic to work with. I look forward to our next transaction. Thanks!
I’m a first-time home buyer and I could not have asked for a better experience! Holly was the best agent ever. I was able to buy my home in about a month after seeing it for the first time. There was a lot that I didn’t know about the home buying process and Holly was so patient with all my questions. She’s the best communicator; there was never a stressful moment of guessing where things were with the home buying process. Holly made the communication very smooth between the mortgage peopl…
Gigi was very pleasant to work with. She is very knowledgeable of the local market. Keep up the good work, Gigi!
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!
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
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.
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.
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.
Eleanor and Andy MerrittGainesville, FL
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.
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.
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.
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!

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.
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.
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.
“I literally had two days to find a house and get an accepted offer and super woman [Denise] here pulled it off! Awesome realtor! Very knowledgeable about the area and will go the extra mile every time.”
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.
Lisa & Francois Chantelle
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.
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!
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!
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.
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
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!
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.
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.
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!
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!
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!
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!
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.
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.
