Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $450K in North Raleigh, Raleigh, NC.

Taryn is AMAZING! She is an excellent realtor who really knows the real estate market, the Triangle and housing in general. She made our home buying search easy and fun. I would highly recommend her.

When buying a home, there are so many things to check that the average home buyer just can't do it all, nor does the home buyer know to check it all. Taryn notices EVERYTHING. During visits to houses, she noticed and pointed out damaged siding, previous water damage, termite damage, an outdated electrical system, a lack of gutters, etc. How many home buyers, on their first visit to house, would notice if the house didn't have gutters? I would say no one. But Taryn notices these things. I would point out that she never tried to sway or decision in any of those houses though. She just wanted us to have the most information possible to make our decision, which we both greatly appreciated.

She is adept at researching properties, too. We were interested in one property that was a FSBO. Something didn't seem right to Taryn so she took the time to research the property and found out the house was moved to the location, it needed an updated water and sewer connection and other issues. None of this was disclosed by the seller and all of it would have cost the buyer wasted time and money if an offer had been made. Taryn saved us so much work and hassle.

Our negotiation process was a little difficult, but Taryn maintained a professional attitude throughout the long (and sometimes contentious) talks with the seller's realtor. She was able to get us everything we wanted included with the sale of the house, and a good price, too! During our due diligence period, we were out of the country. Taryn handled all of the inspections, getting repairs done, and a lot of the bank paperwork on her own. She is excellent at communication and made sure that we were always informed of what was going on and any issues that had arisen. I would say that our circumstances were pretty extreme but it was nice to have Taryn step up in every way.

I can't say enough good things about Taryn. She got us our house and got us familiar with our new city and community by sending us links and articles to events and things we might be interested in doing. I highly recommend her.

Showed home in 2011 in Northeast Raleigh, Raleigh, NC 27616.

If we could give more than five stars, we would. Taryn is incredibly dedicated, thorough, and competent. In a state like North Carolina, where you really need your agent to be on the ball...Taryn surpassed all our expectations. She was always extremely easy to get in contact with, by email and phone. She's very knowledgeable about the Raleigh area and both foreclosures and HUD homes, and her negotiating skills are top notch. She's warm and fun to work with, has a fantastic attitude, and is always honest and forthcoming. In short, she's someone you want in your corner. Although we couldn't complete our deal due to an extremely difficult seller, Taryn was diligent throughout the process, and made what could have been an extremely stressful event easy. Her knowledge and honesty helped us find a great house, and absolutely saved us from buying into what could have been a nightmare. We cannot recommend Taryn highly enough.
