What Clients Are Saying
"It was absolutely a pleasure to buy our wonderful 140 West place with you. You made it all flow so smoothly that it was a done deal in an amazingly short time. We are sure it is because you really care so much about your clients. Thank you for helping us realize our dream of being real Tarheels."
D. Levy, Chapel Hill
"I have worked with a few real estate agents and the experience working with Wendy was the best. Trying to find a house in a seller's market was incredibly stressful but her experience and patience was very reassuring. Wendy made sure we had all of the tools possible for us to make decisions that would fit our needs, not just on the property, but throughout the rest of the process."
A. Evans, Durham
"I have bought two houses and sold one with Wendy’s assistance. She is knowledgeable (her numbers on comps have come in extremely close to the appraisals, and in one case these calculations helped us tremendously in a competitive situation as she identified value that was beyond the asking price), extremely responsive, unwaveringly patient, and has a sharp eye for details. Her experience can guide you through all of the tricky situations (competing offers, delays in closings, repair negotiations, etc.). And she knows the area well. She will certainly be our first call for any further realty needs."
J Metcalfe, Durham & Chapel Hill
"We recently worked with Wendy Tanson to purchase a home, our eighth time buying or selling. Of all the realtors we have dealt with over the years, Wendy is by far the best. She is an expert in the field with many years of experience, and is competent and kind. She gave us wonderful guidance, which was especially appreciated since we are new to the area. You can’t do better than Wendy!"
C. Dugas and M. Ardis, Durham
"Wendy Tanson is an excellent real estate agent. Her competence and attention to detail were invaluable throughout the process. Wendy really listened to what we wanted in a new home and any listings she sent to us were always on point with our desires. Her knowledge of the market and willingness to share her professional opinion were a great help through the many decisions of buying a home. Wendy was always calm, professional, and excellent at communicating throughout the process. Working with Wendy was the best decision we made. If you need to buy or sell, definitely call Wendy!"
M. Bridges & W. McSwain, Pittsboro
“We truly want to thank you for all your help, support and guidance. Your expertise is unrivaled and we have seen you go above and beyond to support us throughout the process. The profession is lucky to have someone so experienced, honest and caring.”
A & M Crollman, Apex
"It has been an absolute pleasure working with you throughout the process of buying our new home. You have been so friendly, as well as truly helpful. This is our first real time buying a house, and as difficult and stressful as it was, you made it much simpler for us. Thank you for all the time and energy you devoted to us. We are so blessed everything worked out in the end, and without you, who knows what may have been. We are truly thankful. We had a great feeling about you when we found you, and will definitely refer people to you. They will be in great hands!"
M Harding & D Nyholm, Durham
"Bryan and I have been in shock and awe since the rapid sale of our house. We can't thank you enough for your hard work on our behalf. You have a unique ability to engender trust and we are so grateful that we were able to find and work with you. You made the emotional and foreign process of selling easy and we are forever indebted to you!"
E Long, Orange County
"Over the past dozen years, I have dealt with numerous real estate agents as I have sold and bought residential property. Almost every experience left me feeling frustrated or disappointed. Working with Wendy Tanson has been the shining exception. From the beginning, Wendy was outstanding in every way. As I was living in a different part of the state, it was imperative that I have someone I trusted 'on the ground.' Wendy managed every aspect of the process flawlessly. From the time we first corresponded through the closing, I found Wendy to be completely accessible and responsive to all my queries and concerns. I always felt confident that I had an advocate who was working tirelessly and effectively on my behalf. She always kept the big picture in mind, but also tended to the myriad details that have the potential to derail a deal. I am now happily settled in a home that I love, and feel positive that I got a great deal, thanks to Wendy's expertise. If I every need to buy or sell, Wendy is the first - and only - person I'd call. In short, she is exceptional and I feel so fortunate to have worked with her.”
K Baer, Pittsboro
“As first-time home-buyers, we needed an expert, leader, and patient listener. Wendy Tanson was our answer. She championed us through the home-buying process flawlessly. We loved working with her, because she said out loud what we were thinking and ensured we found a home that was completely within our budget and reflected our wish list. She answered all of our questions -- before we even asked -- and remained alongside us through closing and beyond to ensure everything was in order. Wendy’s business style reflects her timeliness, accountability and sophisticated professionalism. We were never worried about not getting the home we wanted, because we knew Wendy would make it happen. And it was exactly that simple. She made this whole process so easy for us, that we can’t wait to repeat the process all over again with her some day!”
E Eubanks & D Bullard, Durham
"Wendy is as good as they get! My husband and I couldn’t have been more pleased with the incredible service she provided us during the purchase of our home. With her kind and caring nature, patience and calm manner, Wendy is a pleasure to work with. Her incredible attention to detail and proactive way of handling all of the facets of the process made our home search as easy as it could be. We wholeheartedly recommend Wendy for both buying and selling a home."
M Lynn, Chapel Hill
“You are an amazingly diligent, skilled realtor and it was a pleasure to work with you. While the process of selling our home was at times nerve-wracking for us, your lightening fast communication was always reassuring. Thanks for all of your hard work. We really appreciate it!”
W & T Edds, Durham
"You are our SUPER REALTOR! You did such an amazing job taking care of us -- I don't feel we can thank you enough! We can't imagine how difficult it would have been if it weren't for you. We will be forever grateful for all you've done."
N & D Grace, Chapel Hill
"Wendy Tanson is without doubt one of the most wonderfully efficient people I`ve ever had the good fortune to work with. Her attention to detail is fantastic, and as a consequence she made the whole experience remarkably stress free. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending her to one and all !!"
S Harper, Hillsborough
"I wanted to write and tell you again how much I appreciate everything you did for me. You were so wonderful to work with -- calm and competent. You have that rare combination of being a stellar professional as well as a warm and thoughtful person."
N Fantozzi, Chapel Hill
"Harvey and I can not express to you enough how much we have appreciated working with you. You are an outstanding realtor….truly amongst the best in the business, and certainly the best we have ever met. It is so hard to find someone (of any discipline) who is as on-the-ball, hard working, knowledgeable, professional, and full of integrity as you are. You never pushed, you always provided the most appropriate information…going well above and beyond our expectations of what a realtor should provide, and you worked as hard and were as excited when it turned out to be a piece of land we were buying, as when you thought we were buying an expensive home. We had the distinct impression that your personal bottom line was never, ever an issue, but, rather, the only thing that mattered was our happiness. We are full of gratitude, from our heart, to yours. Working with you has been an absolute pleasure! You are a stellar realtor and fantastic person. We will recommend you, without reservation, to everyone we can.
J Lazinsk & H Kellman, Hillsborough
"Wendy Tanson is amazing! She's incredibly knowledgeable, reliable, honest, kind, and committed to meeting her clients' needs. Wendy did everything she could to help make our move a positive experience. She went above and beyond in every way: responding to calls & email immediately, providing recommendations and resources as needed, and even checking our house herself so we could rest assured that everything was alright. Wendy worked with us long-distance to help us find a wonderful home within our budget and timeline. We've moved many times and have never had such a positive experience with a realtor. She treated us like family, caring about our satisfaction above all else. We cannot recommend Wendy Tanson highly enough...she's exceptional in every way."
S & D Emch, Chapel Hill
"During both our sale and purchase, Wendy was always "one step ahead". It is very re-assuring to have her on your side. Above all else, Wendy is deeply knowledgeable and consummately professional. We felt very well looked after at every stage of this process, and from the really big legal and financial issues to the selection of cleaning companies, electricians and plumbers, Wendy was always there with advise and the advise was always right! My husband and I could not recommend her more highly and never stopped being impressed by her skill and commitment through every stage of the sometimes stressful process of buying and selling."
L & E Hodge, Carrboro
"When my husband and I got married we both had a house to sell. It was overwhelming, but Wendy was amazing! We followed her insightful recommendations and each house sold in 3-4 days! Throughout the process she was there for us in every way, and she was able to handle every issue that came up. She helped us purchase our new home and we appreciated her expertise there also. Wendy is so capable, thoughtful and organized, I would recommend her to anyone without hesitation!"
A Rosenthal, Chapel Hill
"Moving across the country and buying a house we'd never seen could have been the ultimate in stressful, but Wendy made it easy. She took care of everything, anticipated our needs, and made the whole process manageable. She always gave us her full attention, was kind, patient and extremely thorough. Should we ever decide to move, or hear of anyone looking for a great agent, there's no question in our mind who to call."
J & C Ramirez, Durham
"We are writing to tell you again how invaluable you were in helping us select our new townhouse. From our very first correspondence you have been accessible, highly informed and informative, an excellent listener, and an effective and speedy problem solver. We have been so impressed by your professional ability and warm interactions with us. We have no reservations whatsoever in recommending your services to others looking for property in the area."
D & J Levy, Chapel Hill
"Not only do we greatly appreciate your attentiveness, we are also grateful to have met you. I vividly remember during our first conversation when you mentioned that you were thorough. You have certainly performed beyond this statement! Your thoroughness and quality-oriented, professional attitude undoubtedly have played pivotal roles in your success."
C Shaw, Hillsborough
"Thank you for your time, patience and diligence in helping us find the right home! We greatly appreciate all you did along the way: answering all of our questions, providing insight, driving all over the place, and even finding a local map! It was great working with you. Thank you!"
K & I Dalton, Pittsboro
"Wendy is professional and knowledgeable, but more than that she is very charming, on several occasions going above and beyond the normal services expected of a realtor. We have moved numerous times during my husband's career and we can say without a doubt that Wendy is the best realtor we've met. Her knowledge of the area, not only houses, and her patience while we were trying to make a decision was remarkable."
K Goddard, Durham
"Wendy was very personable. She communicates information promptly and was such a pleasure for me to know as well as deal with. Could not say enough about her enthusiasm toward her work and her ability to work with people on a professional but very personal level."
M Cox, Chapel Hill
“We would like to offer our sincere appreciation for all you did for us during the entire home buying process. Your patience, knowledge of the profession, exceptional response time -- not to mention your warm and friendly disposition -- all combined to make the experience a positive one. Buying a home is a stressful (and exciting) time, but when you have a Realtor whom you trust and admire, it helps dissolve a lot of the unease. Again, thank you for everything.”
S & D Lynch, Snow Camp
“As first time home buyers, my husband and I were very nervous about being able to find what we wanted in the time frame we had available to us. Wendy quickly ascertained what we were looking for, and gave us good, practical advice about the process of selecting a home. She kept in constant contact with us, and as a result, we were able to find just what we wanted in a matter of days! I would recommend Wendy to any home buyer, first time or otherwise.”
H & D Woodward, Durham
"Thank you so much, Wendy, for going above and beyond the call of duty. You definitely went 'the extra mile' and we both appreciate it."
J & C Farley, Chapel Hill
