Born and raised in Toronto, Tamara was always fascinated by the endless possibilities of real estate. While still in college, she scraped together every penny she had to buy her first property. From then on, she was hooked on the limitless potential real estate offers. She has since bought and sold multiple single-family and rental properties in Toronto while pursuing a career as a voice actor, which eventually brought her to New York City. As a top voice actor, her first years in the city were spent running between auditions and recordings all over Manhattan. Among her favorite parts of doing voiceovers was the opportunity to walk a different route each day and get to know every inch of her newly-adopted hometown. Like so many New Yorkers, as her family grew she decided to put down roots in Brooklyn. She now lives in Park Slope with her husband and four children. Tamara spends her free time pedaling the family bike with all four children in tow desperately hoping to find a route through Park Slope without any hills!
Tamara was a truly ideal broker for us in our search for a new home. She is an excellent listener, sharp thinker, and perhaps most important she really understands Brooklyn real estate. We were able to get our dream home in a competitive market, in no small part due to Tamara's relationships and outreach on our behalf. – Shannon G.
I've never met anyone more committed to her clients' needs. Tamara listened to everything we wanted and delivered at every turn. I used to think that "any old broker will do." Well that was before we worked with Tamara. My wife and I already had a contract in the works for a new place so we had to sell fast, but didn't want to settle for less than our place was worth. She got us way over the asking price and got it done in time make sure our other deal wouldn't fall through. We placed her in an impossible situation and she made it look easy.
Tamara doesn't skip steps, miss a beat, forget a detail, or waste any time. Bottom line: she's the first broker to talk to if you're considering selling or if you must sell right now. 5 stars is modest. – Jason L.
Tamara did an excellent job selling our apartment. She is a skilled and hard-working broker with personal, in-depth knowledge about Brooklyn markets and neighborhoods. She is great to work with on a personal level, and her aesthetic sensibility was crucial in ensuring that our place looked absolutely amazing before we put it on the market. – Elissa G.
