In 2013, Tom Hutchinson joined Joe Manausa Real Estate with a wide array of experience, from real estate and mortgage finance to small business and restaurant management. He has been licensed as a Real Estate Broker since 2003 and is very excited to be in the business that he loves.
As many people do, Tom moved from Zephyrhills, FL to Tallahassee in 1995 to attend Florida State University. Majoring in Business Management, his dream was to walk on and play football for the Seminoles.
Then reality set in and he was lucky enough to meet Bonnie (a lifelong Tallahassee native) and his dream changed. Tom, who is deathly afraid of heights, proposed to Bonnie in a hot air balloon while floating above Tallahassee’s beautiful landscape. They were married in the ballroom at the University Center Club at Doak Campbell Stadium.
After 12 years of marriage, they have two children (Tommy, 4; Emmalyn, 1). A consummate family man, Tom's number one hobby is his kids. He loves reading to them, working on math problems (yes at four, they apparently do math now) or teaching his baby girl sign language. Tom is a huge FSU fan - small warning, it may be tough to reach Tom on a few Saturday's in the fall. On occasion, you can see him losing money at a poker table, losing balls on the golf course, or getting lost in the woods at Tom Brown Park - do you notice the pattern?
Tom has served as general manager of three restaurants in Tallahassee over the course of several years - Pizza Hut, What-a-burger, and Jimmy Johns. He also spent some time as the general manager of a party rental business until he found his calling in the real estate industry.
He started out as a mortgage broker, originating home loans in Tallahassee. He was the owner and an instructor for The Mortgage School (state licensing school for Florida mortgage brokers). During this time, Tom also received his Florida Real Estate Broker license and opened his own real estate firm.
Now fast forward a few years, Tom has joined Joe Manausa Real Estate and looks forward to continuing to serve Tallahassee for years to come.
