Reccomendation 11/30/2016

Tamar has been our real estate broker as a buyer once and a seller twice. Tamar is knowledgeable, understanding, honest, fun and extremely thorough. On our most recent transaction, we relocated before our home went on the market. We were confident from previous experience that Tamar would take care of everything and communicate throughout the process. We highly recommend Tamar! Rhonda and Matthew M more

Awesome real estate service company 7/31/2016

We have Findwell Agent Tamar's Service to buy our home in July 2016. She is highly professional, very talented and organized in showing many homes with my time schedules. Without any hesitation she showed us many units and the way she explain the details are truly awesome. She was very clear understanding on our budget and boundaries, helped to find a nice unit in a nice location. We are a first time home buyer in USA and we did not know where to start how to review the units, Market value, fourth coming assessments, rental cap etc. She helped us from the day one of our hunt to the closure. She has great negotiation skills to work with sellers to carve you out financial benefits. Very interestingly, she helped us to find out a right lender who gave the nice deal. We really appreciate her patience to answer our queries. We highly recommend Tamar/Findwell Real Estate to all our reference buyers , sellers and friends more

Review for Michael Schafer 6/20/2016

Michael was our agent. We bought a new construction property. He was very patient throughout the process. He took the time to explain the buying procedure for new construction homes. He gave us the valuable suggestions while negotiating with builder. I think that definitely gave us better deal. Not only this, but Michael had been a good advisor in terms of suggesting us from where to buy the appliances etc. I think Michael is very honest and isn't pushy. He gives his honest opinions and enables buyers to make the independent decisions. I think that is very important to me as a buyer. I would highly recommend Michael as an agent. We are planning to buy next home in few years and I would definitely hire Michael as our agent. more

Tamar Baber 6/10/2016

She was flexible with timings and availabilities when I requested to visit the property at the weekend.She gave us her honest view and which helped us taking informative decision. Would definitely recommend. more

Tamar Baber-Findwell Real Estate 5/23/2016

Future Buyers: As a first time buyer I really had no clue of where to start and what the important questions i needed answered before putting in a offer or deciding if a home was a good fit for me or not. At first I went with an agent I had never researched but I "thought" we had a connection. Before anything decide whether or not the agent has the best interest at heart for you whether its as a seller or a buyer. My first agent kept telling me I was going to lose the house and I needed to put an offer over asking with every home I had a glimpse interest in. I quickly realized I was going no where with her and found Tamar Baber after calling into her office to ask for a home. I met her at a home I was interested in and not only did she explain the home buying process crystal clear but she also pointed out things in the home that were good and bad. Tamar really knows what she's doing and she is not PUSHY in anyway on buying the first home right away. When buying a home you want the realtor to be persistent and reachable. She would let me know if she was going to be unreachable for a couple of hours but she always found a way to communicate with me. I did see about 5 homes with Tamar and with every single one she gave me her honest opinion on my chances of getting the home in this high demand market and although it wasn't always the best news to hear at least I wouldn't get my hopes up on a house that was going to go past my price range. I actually only had to write 2 offers and the second offer was accepted because of Tamar's excellent work. She knows how to make your offer competitive and that's something that is key in the home buying process. She helped me though the whole process from beginning to end and even after the home closed. Tamar is a excellent real estate agent in short words. I closed on my home within a month in a half; beginning to end. I recommend her to EVERYONE! more

Michael Schafer 4/21/2016

As my husband and I are from Australia where things are done differently, Michael was instrumental to our understanding of the America housing market. We relied heavily upon his advice and opinion, we really trusted him especially as he became familiar with our persona, likes, dislikes and needs. Michael always followed through with his promises and we found was always willing to go out of his way to show us a house. At times when I asked to see a house I may have had to have waited until the next day as he was already busy with other things, but usually I got him in the AM the following morning, but saying that we did get to see a lot of houses the same day I asked to see them which was so helpful as I am incredibly impatient. We asked a ton of questions (again as we are foreigners) and he was very happy to answer them every single time without hesitation, complaints and gave us very appropriate responses and explanations. I found the home we purchased, it just so happened to be the weekend Michael was out of town for a family event. We were able to quickly set up a viewing (then a second for my husband), then an inspection with other members of the Findwell team, they were super helpful and very quick to organise what I needed. Michael was at the house on the Monday for the house inspection where we asked his personal opinion on the house and he was on the same page as us, that we found a good one. We were always worried about paying to much as this housing market is just insane here, however as nervous as we were about what we offered, seeing the other offers at the end, we know Michael was spot on with what he advised us to do. We actually came in second, but the winners changed their minds so we were next in line and were incredibly happy about that. Yes we would use Michael again for sure, with him its like talking to your friend who is very qualified to give his advice, we were very comfortable with him (we actually left another company for Michael). more

Michael Schafer - Findwell 1/13/2016

I purchased my first home with Michael’s help and I couldn’t have been happier with the job he did. Throughout the entire process he was professional, knowledgeable, and trustworthy. He took my complete lack of real estate knowledge in stride and answered (honestly and candidly) every dumb question I could come up with. When I fell in love with terrible homes he was supportive but pointed out specific problems and explained potential points of concern; at no point did I feel any pressure to make an offer on a home that wasn’t perfect. I quickly came to trust his instincts - he’d come to completely different conclusions than me after looking at the same pictures but every time he ended up being right. He was always available when I would send him messages, more than once we toured potential homes less than a day from when I first saw the listing. In such a competitive market as Seattle this kind of availability was crucial. Once I was ready to make an offer Michael was invaluable in helping me prepare and schedule inspections. In less than four days he was able to put together a very competitive offer in time for the offer review date. He kept in constant communication with the selling agent and provided critical advice on improving my offer in the 11th hour that ended up winning the deal. Without his help I would not be currently living in my dream house. In addition to Michael Schafer every other Findwell employee I worked with was equally professional and knowledgeable. more

Tamar Baber does a great job 1/3/2016

Tamar Baber at Findwell did a great job in listing and assisting my brothers and I in the sale of my parents' home. She was professional, knowledgeable, responsive, timely, helpful, and basically everything you could want out of a real estate agent assisting in the sale of a home. My brothers and I highly recommend her. more

simply great 9/30/2015

We just bought our first home in Seattle, and Lauren was amazing from the very beginning to the last. Our home search began about 2 years ago with Lauren at Findwell while we were still in East coast. Since then, our experience with Lauren and her team have been simply amazing. She has been very patient and helpful, and we felt that she really cares about us getting the right home rather than making her sale. Lauren has been exceptionally professional in every direction yet very personable that we felt like we were hanging out with our good friend whenever we had meetings with her. We never knew we could have this much enjoyable experience with a realtor. She is just very sincere and honest person who would go miles to make things happen for her clients. Thanks Lauren! more

Michael Schafer - Findwell.com 9/26/2015

I'd highly recommend Michael to be your real estate agent for buying home. In a sellers market with less inventory, it is too difficult for a buyer to get the right home at right price. Plus, if you are a first time buyer, you wouldn't be aware of the market, real estate process etc. I have heard that few agents pressurize clients to buy home even thought it might not be in the best interest for client. Working with Michael helped us get the "right home at the right price". He knows about real estate really well. He knows what to look for in a house. He took care of the entire process - finding right home, getting the right inspectors, getting the repair done in house after inspection, helping me understand about the real estate process, and doing whatever is needed. He responds very quickly and is very reliable. You don't need to think twice if Michael is your agent. He is friendly, calm, and understand the needs of the client really well. With Michael, I never felt any kind of pressure to buy home. Even after we got the keys, Michael has been in touch and assured for help for any guidance or information. I'd work with him for any future real estate needs. more

Lauren GeRoy is an AMAZING AGENT! 7/29/2015

Lauren GeRoy with Findwell was amazing at helping us to find a great home within our price range in the crazy Seattle, WA market. After we moved here from the East Coast, we were very unprepared and overwhelmed with the frantic pace and constant negotiations that characterize the Seattle housing market. Lauren's experience and patience were amazing in explaining all the details to use. She was also great at helping us set our expectations and deal with our disappointments when houses flew of the market faster then we were able to see them . She was always available whenever we needed to talk and very flexible at meeting us short notice when a property we were interested in came onto the market. When it came time to put an offer in she was able to expertly negotiate and get us a very good deal (especially in such a seller's market) both on price and repairs to the home. I would strongly recommend anyone looking to buy or sell in the Seattle market make Lauren your first and only call! more

Michael rocks 6/14/2015

Michael is down to earth and approachable. He was patient with the ignorance that we, as first time home buyers, brought to the table and explained everything we asked in as much detail as we required. He was never pushy. There were a few times that my husband and I looked at houses that we thought were solid. Though Michael made it clear this was our decision and he'd support us in whatever choice we made, he also pointed out in more than one instance that the houses we thought were good were over priced. While many Realtors would probably jump at the chance to get a good deal and move on with other clients, Michael always did extensive comps and research and gave us an educated opinion. Because of his extensive knowledge and honesty, we completely trusted Michael when we did find "The One" and he gave it the thumbs up. There are a LOT of Realtors in Seattle and from viewing lots and lots of houses, I got the chance to see quite a few in the field. Sometimes when multiple couples are viewing a house at once things can get a little competitive. I saw another Realtor be VERY rude to Michael. Though he could have snapped or been sassy back to this guy, Michael kept his cool and was diligently professional-- but, of course, firm. We still got to view the house we wanted :) When it came down to the actual offer, Michael and his team had it down to a science. There are SO many factors at play. Michael had informed suggestions on what to do in each instance. Now, I'd assume that the actual document that the Realtor prepares doesn't matter much and the biggest factor is the offer price. While I'm positive that's mostly true, I do want to point out that the Listing agent specifically mentioned that Michael's offer was well written. Something Michael did made our offer stand out-- maybe he was more thorough or professional. Maybe he was just nicer and less sleazy.They worked as an amazing team. Our offer beat out another pre inspected CASH offer at the end of the day. We got our dream house! more

We love Michael at Findwell! 6/3/2015

We worked with Michael in 2014/2015 to buy and sell our home. He is very approachable and friendly, and we felt comfortable with him right away. Michael knew the market extremely well and gave us invaluable advice about the timing of bulling/selling. We made a quick decision that we wanted to place an offer on a home, and he worked quickly to put together a very competitive offer while on vacation with his family. We were exchanging emails and texts into the late hours of the evening! There were competing offers and ours was accepted and well-within our budget (we got a steal!). When it came to selling our home, he gave us good advice about how to get it ready (what we needed to do, what we didn't need to do) and we found ourselves reviewing 12 offers on our house a few days after placing it on the market. We accepted an offer well above asking price and he worked to make sure we understood why certain offers better than others. We had the best possible experience with buying/selling our home and Michael was a huge part of that. He is professional, responsible, responsive, and a great guy. It was a pleasure working with him! more

Tamar Baber with Findwell is a Gem 12/9/2014

Tamar recently helped me and my fiance with three real estate transactions - two sales and a purchase. She was a true professional throughout and gave honest and helpful advice, even when dealing with less professional counterparts on the other side of our transactions. She goes above and beyond, bringing staging items for sales like flowers and vases, and is a fierce negotiator. Five stars for Tamar! more

Out of town buyer recommends Tamar Barber 12/4/2014

My first time buyer daughter and I were looking for a house or a Condo in the Seattle area. I live out of town so I could not be there to manage the process as well as I would have liked to. My daughter was also not experienced in real estate transactions. We met Tamar early in the process and she helped every step of the way. We happened to be in a hot market and made numerous offers before finally finding and "winning" the perfect spot. I have to credit Tamar for hanging in there with us as our needs changed over the period yet she kept plugging along until we finally landed one. I would recommend Tamar as she is easy to work with and is responsive to calls, emails and texts!! more

Michael Schafer with findwell...best realtor ever 10/16/2014

I hired Michael Schafer to sell my house and he sold it in six days. He was very knowledgeable about the market and priced the home perfectly. Lots of potential buyers went through the home and after six days we had several offers. He had specific strategies for picking the best offer that was most likely to close and I received above asking price. It was so much easier than I expected because Michael made it that way. Be careful hiring this guy and the findwell team to sell your home...you'll end up homeless before you know it. more

Tamar Baber a huge help selling our house 10/5/2014

We recently sold our house and used Tamar Baber as our agent at Findwell. We had had less than stellar help in purchasing the house from another agency. Tamar did an excellent job in marketing the house and holding open houses on a consistent basis. She was knowledgeable in having the house presented in the best light, while minimizing the costs of those touches. She worked very hard in overcoming some obstacles in the closing process. In addition, because this was a divorce sale, Tamar had to deal with a large number of issues that to be honest were not directly related to the duties of a realtor, yet she handled them appropriately and efficiently, allowing the closing to happen in a much smoother fashion than it would have without her efforts. I would strongly recommend her to others! more

Great Service 8/22/2014

Tamar was referred to us by one of your friends and she helped us to navigate the crazy market in Seattle eastside. We have been extremely happy with her service, her communication style, her urgency when needed and her overall professional approach to us. She never pushed us on any of the properties that we visited with her, but always provided a very balanced opinion when solicited. She also steered us away from properties that were highly likely to be sold above the listing price, something that we had told her initially that we won't like to do. When we actually bid for the property that we bought, she advised us to make a last minute change in price based on the activities before the offer review deadline, which helped us to close the property at a price point that we wanted. All these attention to details and taking care of client's interests are rare things in today's red hot housing market. We would highly recommend her services and we definitely would use her when the time comes for our next transaction. more

Working with Lauren Geroy & findwell 8/1/2014

Lauren is the best agent you are ever going to have. Period. Lauren helped us purchase our home in a highly competitive market - she is very thorough with her work, very responsive, cares more about what you want rather than getting you to just buy, she is very patient - knows her real estate market and very personable. We have had 3 other real estate agents before her - and while they have been all good - Lauren is just more efficient and cares more about her clients. One awesome quality about her – is that she is relentless in getting information – she will call whoever she needs to get info, keep the seller’s agent in line, and make sure everything is on track. She is just great! Also found findwell blogs by Kevin super useful. more

Highly recommend findwell Real Estate! 5/19/2014

We highly recommend Michael Schafer and the Findwell team! Michael helped us buy our first home and we could not be happier with our experience. From the very first time we contacted Michael to the day we picked up our keys, we felt confident, comfortable, and happy to be working with him. Michael was always professional and prompt to respond and he answered every question thoughtfully and thoroughly. Michael was accommodating to our schedules, flexible, and patient. What stands out most about Michael is that he genuinely cares about his clients and it shows! We were thrilled to have Michael by our side through the home-buying process as our agent and as a friend. more
