- Demand continues to rise with low inventory in the starter & trade-up home markets, causing prices to rise!

Tami is the best!! She helped us search for the perfect home within our budget which wasn't an easy job. She was patient with us and went out of her way to make sure we found exactly what we were looking for. She is extremely knowledgeable about the market, comps and the best areas to invest in buying a home. When we came across the house we wanted, the sellers were looking for a 10 day escrow which I didn't think would be possible.
Tami went above and beyond and put us in contact with multiple lenders to ensure we were still getting the best rate possible and we were able to close on time! She always puts her clients needs first and doesn't stop until they are satisfied. I would recommend her to anyone, not only is she a great realtor but an awesome person and anyone would be lucky to work with her!
Tami has been phenomenal at finding us the perfect house! She was always available when we needed her. We are so happy to have her as our realtor. Cant wait to move in!
Tami helped my step-daughter's family find a home. Not an easy task since they were moving from Chocago to Southern California and was on a limited time and didn't know where they wanted to live. She worked very hard and quickly to find just the right location and home for their family, The location and home is perfect for them and we all consider Tami a terrific agent and friend.
Tami is professional, kind and very hard working. Our transaction was not an easy one; however, Tami did a very good job at keeping me informed the entire way. She always made herself available for me, anytime I needed her. I am really glad I had her by my side to help me through this process.
We contacted Tami quite by accident through her advertisement online. She was very professional, answering our first call to her after hours and spending over an hour on the phone determining what our needs were and how she was going to meet them. I have rarely had such a good experience with a realtor, and in fact have never had one as pleasant and accommodating. She is always ready to communicate and does not require a call to reach out on her own. I would highly recommend Tami to anyone interested in buying or selling a home.
Tami Bowden is a wonderful realtor who knew even cross country, just want we were looking for from a home, and a lifestyle for our children. It was difficult to take on such a big relocation from Illinois to California, but Tami was perfect! Over phone consultation , she listened intently and wholeheartedly. In person, she is an even greater pleasure to work with.
We didn't have much time to find a hime since my husband was there just for a short period before have to travel for work. She was very prepared and very well organized with the time. Tami is professional, knowledgeable, but warm, and very approachable. We would recommend Tami to anyone. Thank you Tami!
In our particular case we needed to sell our house and get into a new one in a very short time frame due to my wife being almost 7 months pregnant. To put it simply we wound up selling our home for well over our asking price with in 2 weeks (while others just a few doors down have been on the market for the better part of a year- and still are) .
Then Tami found the amazing home we live in now and negotiated a smoking deal... and we have time left to get settled before the twins come. While on a professional level the top notch advertising, the negotiation skills, and diligence Tami provides would be more than you could ask for. However the best part of the experience with Tami is getting to work with someone who is truly a nice kind person who see the good in life which bleeds over into her work. It's that great attitude and positive vibe that makes her stand out in an industry of sharks. Thanks again Tami.
My wife and I have purchased several homes over the years, and we have used a number of agents along the way. Tami was by far the most charismatic and attentive agent we have ever used. She knows her market and the buying process EXTREMELY well. There was an instance where we absolutely fell in love with a home and in our emotional state would have signed any deal.
Tami was able to open our eyes to the pitfalls of the deal before we were lured into a potential buying disaster! At the end of our search, we found an even better home and Tami made sure the process was smooth and professional. She fought for our best interests throughout the entire escrow process and skillfully negotiated much need repairs saving us thousands of dollars!
As first time buyers, I am so thankful I had a realtor like Tami to guide my husband and I through the process. She was very persistent and patient with us and did everything in her power to make sure we were able to purchase our dream home. I would highly recommend her to all friends and family.
Tami has done a wonderfull job. I am a picky shopper & she has come to understand my needs very well. I have been looking in many areas trying to decide on a new place that I haven't been in before. I am currently starting an escrow with a house Tami helped me find.
I have worked with Tami on some deals and she has always been professional,prompt and knowledgable of the ever-changing real estate market. I would highly recommend working with Tami and look forward to working with her in years to come.
Very talented and delightful agent to work with. I found her knowledgeable and very helpful in making a decision. I feel no pressure and she can guide you at every step to make a final decision to purchase or sell a home.
I have worked with Tami on and off for years and honestly would not work with anyone else.. I very much appreciate her honesty and knowledge. If you are looking for someone who will listen to you and work hard to find your dream home Tami is your girl!
We have had a relationship with Tami for about a year and a half. We do not currently live in California. She has been extremely helpful and very patient with us. We are looking for a second home in Orange California to someday retire. Her knowledge and follow- up is always the tops.
Tami is a very reliable and friendly agent. She has alot of knoweledge about the Housing and Loan market, I highly recommend her. She listed our house and we did get plenty of lookers and offers but we decided not to sell our house after all.
I cannot recommend Tami Bowden enough. Her knowledge is unparalleled. I would definitely trust her with all of my real estate needs. She has an amazing energy and is always willing to go the extra mile.
Tami is a most polished and professional agent. I was impressed that Tami had lived in the community all her life. She is most knowledgeable of he neighborhood and development. I have had many real estate transactions Tami handled all aspects of my transaction with ease and confidence. She is a real getter-done gal.
Positive and upbeat personality. Very reliable and keeps clients informed. Very smart and very experienced. Shows genuine care and respect to clients. I would highly recommend her business
When I was going through the proccess of buying my first home, my wife and I really had no idea of what we were getting into. Dealing with several different realtors at first, we quickly found out how having a good or bad realtor can make or break your home buying experience. After a month or two of looking for homes, we finally got in contact with Tami.
She completely turned our home buying nightmare, into a fun and enjoyable experience for my wife and I. Tami really helped find exactly what we wanted within less than a week. She was very responsive and helped us every step I the way. She answered every question we had regarding the house, community, taxes, and just about every question in between.
Thanks for your hard work, Glad to be a home owner !
Tami was so helpful from the very beginning until after the deal was done and we were moved in. She really went the extra mile to make sure our buying experience was as smooth as possible. She made herself available at the drop of a hat and really worked to accommodate us on every level. In today's real estate market she proved to be an asset to us, and helped us find out dream home!
