Client Testimonials 

You can’t find a better agent to represent you than Tana. She was tops, covered all the bases and got us a top price. In a world where finding competent help is an issue thank goodness for the Tana’s of the world who define excellence.

Tana did an amazing job selling our upper-Westside home. She made the entire process go smoothly for us. We interviewed several agents before asking Tana to represent us. Her professionalism and positive personality put her a cut above the others. We trusted Tana with a very big step in our lives and she went above and beyond.  We could not be happier.

Tana did an absolutely fabulous job helping us find a home in a very tough sellers market. She quickly developed a feel for what we needed and made sure we were aware of new listing as soon as they hit the market which was really important given the competition for new listing. Her knowledge of the locals areas is strong and she was able to quickly know whether the area we were looking at would be a good fit for out needs. She had great advice and insight when it came to writing our offers and we managed get our offer accepted quickly by meeting some specific terms that Tana's knowledge about the sellers needs informed us about.

I recently was lucky enough to have Tana represent me for the sale of my house. I cannot say enough good things about her. . Tana is a consummate professional, a stickler for details and always does things right. Her understanding of the real estate market and her mastery of the process made a difficult sale go really smoothly. Watching her put the sale together and handle all the little issues that arose was impressive. I honestly don't think it could possibly have been done any better. While Tana is amazingly good at her job, almost more important to me was that Tana is one of the kindest, most thoughtful people I have ever met. She really gave me a huge amount of moral support during what was a fairly traumatic event for me. I couldn't have done it without her. I really feel I have a genuine new friend. If you are buying or selling real estate, I strongly recommend that you call Tana. You will be pleased you did.

Tana goes above and beyond. I couldn't have asked for a better representative with my recent home purchase. She is knowledgeable, kind, responsive, and savvy - much needed in this competitive market! She represented me in a multiple offer situation and because of her patience, diligence and integrity I now have my dream home. She was always there to support my questions and concerns through the process. Simply the BEST!

We met Tana by chance at an open house she was hosting. We immediately were impressed with her honesty and positive attitude, and also felt like we clicked with her personality. We decided to work with her to find our "forever home", which was a multi year endeavor. We were looking for something very special, with a very specific price target. Our lengthy search would have scared off many agents, but Tana was with us every step of the way and was supportive and understanding throughout. When we finally found the right home she was a master of choosing the correct opening bid, managing the negotiation, and did it all with integrity and a smile. We also sold our previous home through Tana, and again we had some special requirements (namely expediting the process). Tana did a fantastic job of market research, and guided us toward a listing price which yielded multiple strong offers. She handled the sale wonderfully, with wisdom on how to stage the home, negotiations, and managed the whole process really well. We know that many agents would not have stuck with us through this journey, and without Tana we would not have found our dream home for a price we can afford. And we not only bought the perfect home, but we also found a wonderful friend in Tana. Thank you!!

We began looking at homes in mid-2017. We met Tana on our first round of open houses in which she was hosting one of them. We found her to be energetic and honest from that first meeting. She offered to spend time with us getting to know the Santa Cruz to Aptos neighborhoods. That's how we spent the following 3-4 visits to the area. She would focus on one neighborhood and show/discuss the highlights for that area. It was about a year before we made our first bid on a place. The third time was the charm as we bought a place about 18 months after first meeting Tana. This is a long time. Tana was patient with us, clearly explained our options, and offered advice when asked. She never pushed an agenda and made it clear that we should be happy with our purchase (great integrity). Her sense of humor is fantastic as we shared many laughs. We now consider Tana to be a close friend.

Tana is absolutely fabulous. She helped us find our dream property. She is impeccably professional and an excellent communicator. Tana really took the time to listen to what our desired property was and then did the work to find our little piece of paradise.

From a vendors perspective: the world needs more agents like Tana (and trust me I work with them all)- do you want your home to sell for 100K over asking?  Do you want a stress free transaction?  Do you want a agent who will help you stag your home to perfection so perspective buyers can envision their new home?  Tana is your realtor.  As a vendor she is a joy to work with.  I show up and she has already done the hard work-the home is photo shoot ready- she meticulously goes through very detail of the home ensuring it will get multiple offers in less than a week.  If I had to choose an agent it would be her, the numbers speak for themselves.
