Having lived and worked in the Boston area all her life, Tami brings her clients a unique wealth of knowledge about Greater Boston communities, ever-changing market trends, and design. Tami first began her real estate career in 1984, working as a sales associate in and around the Boston area. A few years later she went on to pursue her passion for interior design and worked directly with residential developers designing kitchens, baths, and home lighting schemes. This design experience has provided her with an in-depth understanding of home construction while also staying on trend with current design and cultivating close relationships with her clients. Tami eventually found her way back to real estate sales and joins Compass with many years of industry experience.
As a result of her experience and diverse skill set, she understands the value of her client's needs and wants. Whether it be buying a suitable home or designing a functional, aesthetically appealing interior, Tami appreciates and respects the magnitude of these personal decisions.
Tami currently lives in the suburbs of Boston and is the mother of two adult children - one living in Florida and the other in Colorado. As an “empty nester” herself, she is uniquely qualified to assist clients going through this new phase of life. Having experienced it herself, she understands the process that goes into making the emotional decision to sell the family home, downsize and potentially move into the city. She has an uncanny ability to "hear" her clients and create a seamless transaction.
Lastly, Tami cultivates and nurtures strong interpersonal relationships with easygoing communication that supports her strong negotiation ability. She takes pride in her work and enjoys all aspects of helping people make a house, condominium or apartment into a home!
“My husband and I met Tami Schein several years ago when we began our quest to find a new home and lifestyle for the next chapter of our lives. Little did we know the enormity of the challenges we would face. Our needs and expectations evolved markedly over the next few years, and Tami guided us every step of the way. Her patience, expertise, responsiveness and engaging personality knew no bounds. What began as a desire to find a small condo in the city, eventually grew to a decision to sell our suburban home and purchase two condos in the same building in Boston. Throughout this process, Tami treated us as family. She was never the “aggressive salesperson”, but instead a consummate listener who was able to anticipate and exceed our needs. She sold our home in one day and proceeded to find 2 extraordinary condos that were a perfect fit for us. Throughout this process Tami offered us exemplary advice and unwavering support. We are now living in our lovely new home, and consider this move one of the best decisions of our lives. We are eternally grateful to Tami for facilitating our dream!“

“Tami I just wanted to say thank you for all the years of your professionalism and honesty. You are the best! I wish I could buy another house with you! “
“Tami, You really helped make the purchase of our new home a seamless transaction and we were so lucky to work with you. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and expertise of the market. Moving from California made it vital to work with someone as patient and knowledgable as you. It's funny how when you emailed us the house that we ultimately bought, you were so sure that you had found us our new home. And in fact you did! It just took me a little longer to realize that you were right! Thank you!!“
