Tami is a blessing! Tami is an absolute gift to my family. She has helped us find both a rental and our first home. When searching for a rental, we were in a different state and Tami would video chat with us to ensure we had as close to the in-person experience as possible. Tami understood our timeline and helped us be able to walk right into our rental home upon arriving in Texas (which was incredible since we had a dog, cat, and a newborn)! When we finally felt ready to look for our first home to purchase, Tami was our first call. She and her team helped us understand the complexities of searching, offering (and counter-offering), and finally purchasing our first and forever home! We had her support and understanding throughout the financing experience - which was a bit more difficult for us due to my unique employment. Even months after closing, when our AC went out, Tami and her team helped us get the information we needed for insurance purposes. I recommend Tami to anyone who will listen! We are lucky to have Tami in our corner and even more lucky to call her our friend. Thank you, Tami & team!!
Tami, Donald and Lisa made the entire process of selling our home, and purchasing our new home easy and enjoyable. It’s not everyday that you can feel so comfortable turning over the most important financial process you’ll ever complete. Blue Line and everyone involved were amazing and so helpful throughout every single step. I can give them my absolute highest recommendation. Fantastic service. They aren’t just realtors- they become lifelong friends.
Tami and her team were absolutely amazing throughout our process of selling our home and purchasing a new one. We have been working with her for years and won't look anywhere else. Not only was she very knowledgeable and professional but was always willing to answer questions we had and go the extra mile. If you are looking for a broker to deal with I guarantee you won't be disappointed with Blue Line Realty.
