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!

David and Kira are a great team and work very hard for their clients. They had excellent yelp reviews, were a pleasure to work with, and certainly earned our trust; we highly recommend them to all our friends looking to move to Marin.

Bought a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $925K in San Anselmo, CA.

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.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $375K in San Rafael, CA.

What an amazing experience from an unlikely duo. David, who at first glance you assume is the brute and manly part of the duo is the dreamer, the optimist and the engineer of your vision that inspires you to put faith in what you buy. Kira, his soft and gentle and at times comforting partner happens to be the bull-dog and keen negotiator that makes the deal happen the way you want it to go. They use style and tactics that help you with the purchase process but also on the flipside when you go to sell. I had the unique pleasure of purchasing and selling my home in the same 3 year period with them and got in and out exactly where I wanted to with their help. You won't be dissapointed if you listen to their advice and follow it.

Bought a Single Family home in 2007 for approximately $1.225M in Sausalito, CA.

David and Kira of Tam Realty were amazing for us in finding our first home in Marin. They culled through hundreds of real estate listings and showed us exactly the ones we were looking for. When they saw the house we ended up buying, they knew before we even saw it that it was the one. They are great at listening to what is important to you and going out and finding it. Finally, they are no pressure agents - they want what's right for you, when its right for you. All in all, these guys are the best in Marin we have seen. Strongly recommend them for your real estate needs - buying our selling.
