We only have kind words to relate of our our experience with Tamara, as she is the best agent one can come across. She was with us from the start of our purchase to weeks, well past our purchase. She followed through to help us with an unattended matter which should have been done by the seller. As with any purchase there is stress but she saw us through it all from across the country. When we finally met her, it was as if we met a long lost acquaintance. She’s very personable and one who knows the area of which we were looking. Furthermore we were the third of our family who closed a purchase with Tamara.
Tamara just helped our family both sell and buy houses in Seattle. She was in the game with us from day one, offering smart strategic and tactical advice. Bottom-line: we got a great price for our current home, and found our next home in the exact neighborhood we wanted to be in. She's the best agent/partner we've ever had - period.
Tamara is the consummate real estate professional. Her knowledge of the Seattle market is unmatched in my experience. If memory serves, she has successfully completed seven transactions on my family’s behalf over the years, which is perhaps the best endorsement one could offer. We trust her completely.
They say “the third times the charm”. Well, I can say that when working with Tamara, the first, second AND third times are the charm. After working with Tamara to purchase my first two homes (including selling the first one), it was a no-brainer on who to call as soon as I was in the market for a third home purchase.
Once again, Tamara was able to work her magic in what seemed like an impossible situation. After finding a home that met all my criteria, there was only one problem - my financing was far from finalized. Tamara dove right into a tenuous situation and was able to approach the sellers with an honest and accurate...
picture of the situation at hand, i.e., quite a few things had to fall perfectly into place in order for the financing to fall into place. My gut told me the sellers would probably not “play ball” – the house was located in an amazing location at a desirable price and my financing not settled. Why would they wait several months for my financing to come through?
The reason they even considered my offer was simple: Tamara. She is absolutely without peer when it comes to communicating to the prospective sellers/buyers and “going to bat” for her clients. I can honestly say that there is no way I would be sitting in the most amazing house right now while I write this – without Tamara’s representation. In an age when reliability, competence and honesty are rare occurrences, Tamara delivers on all counts. Her follow-through is impeccable. Her industry knowledge is invaluable. Her no-nonsense way of operating is to die for. I highly recommend her services if you’re looking to buy a home or sell a home.”
Tamara was the perfect realtor for our first time home buying experience. She is thoughtful, knowledgeable, and incredibly strategic with what she does. We saw homes with other realtors and found Tamara’s knowledge to be irreplaceable. She was able to point out aspects of homes that we would have missed, was able to give guidance on potential repairs or updates, and was a huge support when making decisions in the crazy Seattle market.
Absolutely loved working with Tamara. She was so knowledgable and willing to go the extra mile to help us out. As newcomers to the area, we didn’t know where to look. Tamara helped us identify neighborhoods and tour homes that perfectly fit our needs. We can’t thank her enough. We basically didn’t have to lift a finger. So wonderful!
Tamara came highly recommended to us by close friends of ours whose family has worked with Tamara for decades. I am so grateful my husband and I decided to switch to working with Tamara for our north Seattle home search. She listened carefully to our hopes and limits and validated the importance of sticking with our vision. Her depth of experience was invaluable navigating how to harness our financial resources and the variables of potential home renovations in potential homes. She was a calming and reassuring presence in the midst of important decision making, like deciding which home to pre-inspect, and what strategies to use when making offers. Spending time with Tamara is always a delight; just wait until you see how her colleagues in the business greet her! Everyone from home inspectors to contractors light up when they see Tamara, and that’s how we felt too, even in the most taxing stretches of our home search. We are so grateful to be on the other side of the search with a home that is a fantastic fit for the life we hope to create for our growing family.

This is the 2nd time we worked with Tamara and we can’t say enough on how much we have loved working with her! We have experienced her superb expertise on both sides, buying and selling our home. She is a true professional and knows all the ins and outs of her profession. She is organized, a great communicator and has an overall calm in the midst of heightened emotions. She makes the whole process appear effortless. We highly recommend her. You won’t be disappointed!

Seventeen years ago we purchased our first house with Tamara. She walked us through the entire process and helped us to find the house that met our needs in all ways. When it came to sell this house (this past spring), Tamara was with us again helping us with all the details. She is incredibly skilled, knows the market, and generous with her time and knowledge. When you work with a real estate agent you want to feel that you are in really good hands and that you are working with someone of great integrity. But also someone who is down-to-earth, warm, has a good sense of humor and takes the time to get to know you. She is, simply said, the best!

Tamara was recommended to us by 2 other satisfied customers to help us sell our home. My husband and I have relocated to Canada and needed a real estate broker who is also a strong project manager to refresh and stage the home. Tamra leveraged her reliable network and contractors and her personal know-how to make the home inviting to potential purchasers and kept us informed every step of the way. Just as the house was ready for marketing, Covid-19 hit hard. Tamra carefully gauged the situation, added extra sanitizing measures, and boldly marched forward to market our home. Thanks to all of Tamara's efforts, the house sold above asking price. While a zealous advocate for her clients, the sellers, Tamara also coached us on the fair steps to take for the buyers. Her strategic advice helped us avoid any surprises for either side, and the house closed smoothly. Competent, caring, calm, and conscientious—you want Tamra in your corner in a real estate transaction.

We got in touch with Tamara through a referral and couldn't be happier with a real estate professional. We knew what we wanted and she moved quickly, providing a detailed breakdown of the marketing in our area, what we could expect during the process, and what a realistic timeline would look like. During the process, Tamara easily navigated city, builder, financing, and paperwork traps that would have left our heads spinning. I would not hesitate to recommend Tamara to anyone; she'll help you find the home of your dreams!

There is simply no one else that we would rather work with than Tamara Marson. The amount of attention and time that she gives her clients is unprecedented. She is always available; her knowledge and experience came through in every situation that can possibly present itself. She is a coming, kind, caring person who is a joy to work with. This is the third house we have had her work with us on and they have all come out better than we could have ever imagined, we have asked to please take. Higher percentage and she refused. She said, "you guys keep it and do something special with it" and then she sent us a bottle of champagne to celebrate the closing of our home. I just cannot imagine working with a greater person and real estate agent than Tamara Marson.

Tamara treats all people with fairness, kindness and respect. She has perfected the art of being the best representative possible for her clients, while treating all others involved with the same integrity and kindness. She is extremely knowledgeable. When I considered buying a manufactured home in a retirement community for my return to the Seattle area, Tamara made herself somewhat of an expert on this unique market, just for me. Eventually I decided on a condo instead. Tamara helped me find the perfect place for me. She showed it to family members of mine since I couldn't travel there. I have so much confidence in Tamara and her ability to discern which home choices a client would cherish, that am confident with this purchase. She's not pushy. Tamara helped me weigh the pros and cons. Every step of the way, Tamara went above and beyond what you would expect from a real estate agent. I am a better person for having worked with Tamara; by her way of doing business and the way she treats everyone, she reminded me of the values I hold dear when I was at risk of forgetting at times during these pandemic times and huge life-altering processes of selling and buying a home. Tamara is simply the best!
Tamara was terrific. She kept us informed, gave good advice and was accessible when we needed to communicate with her. We were out of town when we listed our condo so she and her crew straightened up for us.

Buying a home in Seattle would not have been possible without Tamara's expertise, guidance, and deep knowledge of the market. As first-time buyers, she went above and to take the time to educate us on the entire process so that we could proceed with confidence.
Tamara was extremely responsive throughout the process and served as a true advisor, often after hours due to a short turnaround time needed to get our offer in. She also surrounds herself with other professionals she can bring into the process for you as needed, including inspectors and condo reserve study analysts. There was no point in the process where Tamara wasn't already two steps ahead, acting as an advocate for us. At all times, we truly felt like she had our back and was working to help us make the correct decision and the correct purchase.

Working with Tamara on the sale of our house was like a breathe of fresh air. It is hard enough going thru the whole process. Tamara made it so much easier. Her calm demeanor, professionalism, experience, strong communication and personal touch, helped alleviate a lot of our stress. We would strongly recommend her to anyone willing to buy or sell a home.

The absolute best thing about working with Tamara was her loyalty to us, the client. Throughout the process I felt she had our best interests at heart, and her research on the property once we put an offer in was stellar.
