Tam Realty is top-notch! I've been working with them as a resource for mortgage services and what first impressed me about the duo is their fantastic personalities but it's their character and commitment to their clients that warrant praise.

Their knowledge and attention to details make the deal go smoothly. Always on top of their customer's needs, they put their client's first and follow-through on outstanding issues until they're resolved.

I highly recommend using Kira and David Swaim for any real estate needs!

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $725K in San Rafael, CA.
Our experience working with Kira and David as our buyers agent(s) was very positive. Together, they provided a broad and deep level of expertise in property issues, along with a thorough knowledge of the current Marin real estate market. Their professionalism was evident in many ways too: they were well-organized, had great communication skills, and were strong negotiators and advocates. We were also put at ease by their down-to-earth and warm personalities.

Kira and David are clearly agents who are interested in nurturing relationships and they run their business with a long-term perspective. They both counseled patience in our search, instead of trying to push us into a poor fit. Although we chose to do most of the initial property searching ourselves, the properties they recommended were all roughly within our targeted price range and other criteria. David provided honest recommendations against some of the homes that we'd expressed some interest in, but that weren't really a good fit. He provided useful assessments of properties with a mixture of positive visualization and realistic concern. Kira pushed hard to negotiate prices to our advantage during the two negotiations we were involved in, and she worked hard with the selling agents to try to make the transactions work for everyone. During the closing process, Kira managed the process and details rigorously, even taking up the slack when some of the involved parties were not as effective in their roles as hoped for.

Having talked with numerous friends and acquaintances about their experiences with agents while buying and selling homes, we can attest that Kira and David are in a class far above most. We highly recommend Tam Realty.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $550K in San Anselmo, CA.
I'll admit that going into the purchase of my first home, I didn't really see the point of using a real estate agent. What with the internet and all it has to offer, I thought there was a chance my wife and I could tackle it ourselves. How very wrong I was, and how very lucky we were to find Kira and David Swaim of Tam Realty.

First and foremost, these guys know real estate. We were successful in every offer we put in through them (some below asking, don't worry!) and we ended up in a wonderful house. They were also 100% in it all the way through deal closing: David has inspectors that can look at just about everything, contracts were reviewed, banks were consulted, a title officer was chosen, they simply do not miss a thing.

They also seem to know just about everything there is to know about Marin and this is what really sealed the deal for me. Moving up here from the city seemed daunting, they helped us find a neighborhood that was a fit, that had great schools and met our needs.

You simply can't get this package from the internet. You are unlikely to get it with some other bozo agent. If you're looking to move to Marin, Tam Realty should be your first call.

Bought a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $775K in Corte Madera, CA.
David and Kira helped us by our house in Corte Madera. We thought there was no way we could afford this house we really wanted. Because of their masterful negotiations skills and how they presented our offer we were able to get into our beautiful home!!! Thank you David and Kira for helping us through that process and being so responsive. You are the BEST!

The coolest thing about TAM realty is the team you get in Kira and David. Kira is a friendly go-getter, who truly works her butt off to find the right home for you. Once she finds it, she'll go to bat for you and get a great deal done on your behalf. That's what she did for us, finding us our epic first home in San Anselmo for way below asking price. Once the offer is accepted, Kira hands the baton to David, who has an extensive knowledge of how homes work. He guided us through the inspection process and gave us extremely valuable insight and advice about the quality of the home and what needed to be addressed. And here's the kicker. David has a team of workers that will help you make any improvements needed on the home. Since we took ownership of the home, David and Kira have stayed in touch with us, helping with everything from questions about the house to where to have dinner. Thanks David and Kira for your hard work and commitment. Highly recommended!!

Bought a Multi Family home in 2010 for approximately $850K in Fairfax, CA.
David and Kira of Tam Realty, helped us buy our house in Fairfax. I really found their expertise and willingness to roll up their sleeves and work hard to represent our interests to be very helpful.

I found them a great help in all aspects of the house buying process. They listened to the type of house we were looking for, and in addition to giving us the access to MLS to help us find obvious choices, they also were creative in finding houses that did not obviously fit our criteria. Maybe a 2 bedroom that had some unfinished space that could be relatively cheaply converted into space to more closely fit our needs.

In addition to the search, they would head down to the city and sort through the city records to find out everything that was public on a property.

They were never afraid to bid 'too low' on a property. They might guide us telling us a bid would have no chance, but would still make such an offer if we asked them. I felt like through the offer process they would help us as buyers get the best price for a property, they would negotiate as if they were buying a house for themselves.

Then after we bought the property, David and Kira have been very open to putting us in contact with a variety of people to help us get the property in order, and always with an eye for price and quality.

I really feel that David and Kira saved me much more in the house buying transaction than they received as comission. I highly recommend them, particularly if you are buying in Southern Marin.

THE BEST IN MARIN. Shudder at the thought of working with a real estate agent? So did I. That's why we work with TAM Realty and recommend them exclusively. It was our first home in Corte Madera and David and Kira couldn't have been more helpful. They fought hard to get us a screaming deal on our house. They were never pushy, pulled the leash when we contemplated paying too much, and always worked around our schedule. Kira stayed on top of the bank, the escrow company and the selling agent. David managed all the inspections and even showed up at 8PM at our house with a bottle of champagne for the closing. They also have an extensive network of contractors they work with and will personally supervise and coordinate any work you need done before you move in. Truly a full-service team......and wonderful people overall. If you want to avoid the "slick wheeler-dealer in the leased BMW"-style real estate agent.....you've found the people to work with.
