What People are Saying
Tamar was the best realtor my husband and I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Being out of state it was a little difficult to purchase a house, but Tamar made it as easy as possible. From finding suitable options all the way through the purchase of the house, Tamar was always available to answer any questions we had and quickly handle any issues that came up. She negotiated a great deal for us and we are thrilled with our purchase.
Tamar is fantastic -- patient, thoughtful, a great listener who pays attention to what you want and need, then works hard to find if for you. We sold our old house and bought our new house with Tamar, and we couldn't have asked for a better agent. In fact, if you had to ask me what her best quality is, it'd be a tough choice. She's awesome at explaining all the complicated legalese and scary real-estate mumbo-jumbo. She's amazing at finding solutions to unexpected problems (we had some strange contractual/financial hiccups when trying to sell our old place, and she didn't sleep till she found a way around them). The truth is, now that it's over, I'm not sure what we'll do without talking to her every day… although we'll probably come up with some excuse to call her anyway.
If you want a realtor who will always look out for your best interest, go with Tamar Asken. She is a pro who brings a level of honesty and integrity that are hard to find. Her background in finance is very helpful as well. Even in the most complicated situations, Tamar is a true professional who goes above and beyond your expectations. I am happy to recommend her.
At one point in my home buying journey Tamar Asken told me that one of the reasons she loves being a realtor is she gets to work with her clients as they browse through all the what-ifs of life. What would life be if you live in a condo downtown? What about the Valley? A house in mid-city? I was initially overwhelmed by all those what-ifs but that faded away when I started working with Tamar. I said I wanted to look all over LA and we did exactly that, never once feeling pressured into making a decision. When looking at a property we’d talk through the plusses and minuses and with each we both learned a bit more about me and what I was looking for. Inventory had been very limited and after a few months of looking I was starting to feel that it might be time to pause and give the market a bit of time. Then a listing popped up in my email inbox from Tamar. A few minutes later a text from her. “You might want to take a look at this…” and at first sight I knew that house… THIS HOUSE I LIVE IN NOW… was perfect! It’s the Spanish style colonial I never knew I wanted but had to have as soon as I saw it! Tamar Asken made a stressful process fun. She honestly helped me learn a lot about myself (I know that’s corny but its true!) and I would recommend her to absolutely anyone looking for a property in LA.
