Name the 3 most important decisions in a lifetime, and purchasing and selling a home likely could make your list.

My name is Tom Gavin. REALTOR®, business leader, and world class student in customer service skills.  Honesty and integrity, along with a maniacal attention to detail, are foundational beliefs I begin and end each day with.

My co team member, Damarys Ayala and I pledge to always think "client outcomes." Yours.

Heralding from a small New England town instilled in me the importance of living my life according to a set of standards. Relocating to Maryland while growing my business, I’ve now lived a majority of my life here. Not sure at first how long I was going to stay when I first arrived over twenty years ago, I caught on to the similar ways people live their lives here. Ways in which I was raised. Roots are important here and those values are passed down, generation after generation.

In less than six months after arriving, I had decided that with as much opportunity as was presented to me here, I was crazy for thinking there was more anywhere else. I stayed.

Two things I did struggle with. I just could not come to grips with this passion the locals had for sitting at a picnic table picking away at a crustacean from the Chesapeake Bay and become practically filthy from the process. What?!?

All this work and I still craved for a burger 2 hours later?? Welcome Tom, to his first Maryland Crab Feast. I have learned and now possess the how-to skills close enough to be thought of as a native Marylander.

The other issue I had was… folks here root for the wrong baseball team. Sorry. When you’re born in Montague Massachusetts all catholic babies emerge from the womb a Red Sox fan.

Can I help with your real estate dreams?

Spend 5 minutes with me. You'll know quickly if your goals for listing match our skills.

I won’t make promises here. Only 2 assurances.  Here goes …

  • If I or my teammates feel we can help you, we’ll say so.
  • If for any reason we feel we cannot, we’ll say so as well.

How about a cup of coffee, perhaps a piece of pie, share a few stories with each other and explore what areas best that Tom Gavin’s Home Team can best serve you?



My name is Damarys Ayala - the other half of Team Gavin. I am motivated by relationships. People energize me. For that reason, this business is a perfect fit for me.

Originally from Fajardo, Puerto Rico, I traveled the world with my family while my dad served in the military. We lived in a melting pot of cultures, including San Juan, Costa Rica, Germany, and Massachusetts.

I was always fascinated by the differences in homes from one region to the next. It’s no wonder I went into real estate in 2005. Committed to family and faith, I enjoy volunteering at Mountain Christian Church alongside Tom. Depending on the season, I can also be found rooting on the Orioles and the Redskins. A second-degree black belt in Taekwondo, my belief in daily self-improvement along with my drive to succeed carries over into my work ethic. I am passionate about our clients’ dreams and will strive to do all I can to help you achieve them.

What sets me apart?

  • A passion for industry knowledge that keeps me abreast of the latest trends in the industry. I love to learn. What factors determine market trends? What variables determine prices and rates? Research and study are an ongoing process if you want to serve your clients in the best way possible in this industry.
  • An obsession for customer care along with a sincere empathy for the occasional challenge a seller or buyer may face is the engine that drives me.
  • Fluency in two languages.
  • A real team approach. Tom and I play off each other’s skills. One plus one equals much more than two when you hire Tom Gavin's Home Team of Coldwell Banker Realty.

"Tom Gavin and Damarys Ayala from Coldwell Banker Realty provided exceptional service during the sale of our late brother's property. Their compassionate approach and guidance eased the stress of selling a home, making the entire process smooth from contract signing to settlement. We highly recommend Tom and Damarys for their professionalism and care during this challenging time. "

"I cannot begin to express how grateful we are fo Tom Gavin and Damarys Ayala. We have worked with a couple of different realtors before who were great to us as well but Tom and Damarys gave us the confidence we needed to sell our home and made it happen! Like many people out there we were worried that we would end up paying two mortgages for a few months or even longer. Our home had previously been on the market in 2018 and had no luck. We put the house back in the market again in July 2019 and we were getting very little interest/ showings. At this point we decided that we needed to go a different route and possibly even rent the house. My husband received a call from Tom Gavin and of course I thought ok another realtor trying to get our business… wrong! Of course that’s every realtor’s ultimate goal but Tom spoke to my husband on the phone a couple of times and focused on US personally. He’s the kind of person you can (and will) talk to for hours! Tom told us that there is no reason "

"Very knowledgeable and friendly Damarys was delightful to work with. She has a broad knowledge of the market and stays current as it changes. She helped me to get my house under contract for a higher than list price within less than a week on the market. I highly recommend Damarys and Tom! "
