"As a first time home buyer, Tammy has been a wealth of knowledge and such a great person to work with during the entire process. From understanding what we want to negotiations, we could not ask for a better realtor to work with. Tammy has guided us through each of steps in the process of buying a home and providing advice on what to look out for when buying a home. She is on top of everything as well in terms of helping you with your search and providing updates asap. We are so grateful for her and would recommend her to anyone who is a first time home buyer or buyer in general!"

"Would give 15/5 stars if I could! Tammy was incredible and I can’t imagine working with anyone else. She was extremely thorough, thoughtful and helpful throughout the entire process. As a first time homebuyer, I didn’t know a lot about anything, and she really was a guide to me throughout, explained everything from start to finish, and and helped me assemble a rockstar team to really get the deal done (and done right). Her intuition is second to none, which when combined with her wealth of experience on all sides of the business was key to finding the right home for me and navigating negotiations. On top of that, she was very kind, patient and a blast to work with! I love my new home, but when the time comes to move on, I absolutely plan to work with her again.” - Laura S.

"Tammy was an invaluable resource and quarterback for my first-time condo purchase. Her diligence, attention to detail, work ethic, and commitment to me were evident every step of the way. To say that Tammy goes the extra mile for her clients is an understatement. She went above and beyond what what I would’ve expected from a buying agent; from offering advice/reassurances, dealing with unforeseen issues, and working to address any hiccups that came up, Tammy handled each step of the process with honesty and care. She made herself available to me at all hours, and took extra time to teach me about the process. I felt extremely lucky that I had her as my agent, and can’t say enough good things about her work.” -David M.

"I can’t thank Tammy enough, or give her a more glowing recommendation. She reached out to me on LinkedIn when I posted a message on my page regarding a move date of April 1. From there, she asked me the right questions (location, must haves, deal breakers, etc.) and stuck to them even when I strayed! To say she knows me as well as I know myself would be an understatement. I truly feel she lives and breathes for this. I’m not sure if she ever sleeps, because even when I apologetically texted at all hours, she was replying almost immediately. Her communication with me from start to finish was exemplary, and we had so much fun along the way. She really got to know me and I had so much fun getting to know her, as well. I will be staying in my apartment for years to come, but I almost wish I was moving at the end of my contract just so I can work with her again! In the meantime, I’ll just have to refer her to my friends." -Lauren K.

"My boyfriend and I worked with Tammy to find our first home. Tammy was very helpful & thorough throughout the whole process, ensuring we found the perfect place and had ALL of our questions answered. She works with a great team, which we utilized and turned the home buying process from scary and stressful to easy without issues. Tammy was on top of everything and prevented any issues from happening before they could arise. I definitely would recommend working with Tammy to buy a home!" -Megan C.

"Tammy couldn’t have worked any harder to get me the best price as a seller and help me find the perfect new home! 100% recommended! 5 Stars!" -Mara G.

"She knows every part of the transaction, inside and out. Tammy is a great resource for any buyer or seller!" -Rich H.

"Tammy was by far the best realtor we’ve ever worked with! She is extremely reliable, committed, and hardworking. She listens well and always relays the most important details throughout our whole selling and buying process. She took careful note of every person that came through our open house, and followed up with them personally afterwards to build the rapport with their realtors. It’s because of Tammy we were able to sell our condo in 2 weeks, and when the house we had our eye on got another offer, that seller’s realtor remembered Tammy (probably because she followed up with him constantly!) and gave her a call ASAP so we could also put our offer in, and we ended up getting the house. She is very sweet, and just enjoyable to be around... she always has a great attitude, which is so important during the stressful times of buying and selling and moving . I would highly recommend working with Tammy. No one will work harder for you." -Claire K.

"She knows every part of the transaction, inside and out. Tammy is a great resource for any buyer or seller!" -Rich H.

"Tammy did an A-1 job helping us land a condo that we love ! She was with us every step of the way, offering an insider's perspective and coaching as we went through the process as first time homebuyers. We went from offer to closing in just over 2 months -- and Tammy really went that extra mile to make sure everything came together." -Dustin H.

"Working with Tammy to buy my first condo has been a dream! As a first-time homebuyer, I truly appreciated Tammy’s ability to walk me through the process. She took the time to explain the logic behind certain steps in the process. The extra context really helped calm my anxiety. She also took the time to walk through documents with me and answer any questions. As a single woman purchasing her first property, I had heard horror stories of sellers and contractors taking advantage of buyers. This was my biggest fear going into the process. However, Tammy did a wonderful job of advocating on my behalf and helping me find a place that met my current and future needs. From lenders and lawyers, to home inspectors and electricians - Tammy has a plethora of experienced connections that help keep costs manageable without cutting corners. I was welcome to use my own vendors, but I found that hers were among the most affordable and highly rated on independent sites. While I had a more limited budget, Tammy went above and beyond to make me feel just as important as those with larger budgets. She truly went above and beyond expectations. She also did not push me to look at places that were out of my budget (even if I would qualify for the mortgage). I would highly recommend Tammy for those looking at their first – or fifth – home." -TC Gunderman.

"Working with Tammy VanKrevelen was absolutely incredible from start to finish! Tammy is prompt, reliable, upbeat, and truly cared about helping us find our perfect home. Tammy respected our budget and I felt like she valued us as people. Tammy taught us everything we needed to know as first time home buyers so that we felt empowered throughout the entire process. Tammy is a great communicator and actively listened to our wants and needs. Tammy was able to get us in to see countless homes and was able to quickly pick up on the type of home that we were looking for. Ultimately, Tammy went to see a home for us while we were at work and she knew it was the perfect home for us! After viewing the condo ourselves, we were able to put in an offer and have it accepted before the home was officially listed. As we closed on our condo today and reflected on our journey with Tammy, I feel incredibly grateful. Not only is Tammy amazing, but she knows a bunch of amazing people. Tammy was able to connect us with a great lender, attorney, and contractor. I 1000% recommend Tammy!" -Sara Solger.

""Tammy was incredible. She was everything that we could have hoped for in a realtor and more -- responsive, caring and a proactive problem solver. To say we'd strongly recommend her would be an understatement."!" -carrlanphier

""I can't write enough words to describe Tammy's support and guidance through not only an emotional process but all the expertise needed to guide a real estate transaction to close. Tammy gets 10 stars plus in all areas (5 isn't enough!). She guided us through each and every step and understood the emotions one goes through when selling a home that you have raised your children in. Her expertise in all areas to guide us is worth it's weight in gold. She was always available for questions, called back quickly and was a pure joy to work with. Her can-do attitude, smile and willingness to help figure ANYTHING out is why I give her more than 10 stars!! Please feel free to call me with any questions. I am happy to provide any additional information."!" -wrohrs
