She was dedicated, thorough, responsive, and kind. Her expert knowledge of Brookline property and town procedures was also extremely helpful. I can’t recommend working with her enough!
We were looking for a 2 bedroom condo in Coolidge Corner, Brookline and she has shown my wife quite a few units but none worked out. We went on vacation while Tatyana kept on looking for us and we were totally surprised when we got a call from her when we were out in Hawaii. She told us about a property at 30 Stearns Road in the heart of Coolidge Corner that just came on the Brookline real estate market. It was a one bedroom unit. We were not really interested but she saw the potential and explained to us how we could enhance values by doing some modification and convert the unit to a two bedroom unit. Tatyana has an uncanny perception in spotting potential values in property and the insight in the demand of the real estate market. When we returned, we saw the unit, we put an offer and got the unit. We closed on 5/8/2013. We did the modification as she recommended which did required many approvals from various agencies and we like the outcome. Her recommendation turned the unit into a very attractive buy for us. After that, she also helped us to find the tenant and the tenant is still living there. We thank Tatyana for her insight and work ethics in always following through in her commitments like checking the construction progress during the modification and kept us inform of the rental progress. After the 30 Stearns Road sales, we are so happy in doing business with her that we ask her to help us to purchase another Condominium in Boston. These days. If we have any real estate needs, we just call on her assistance. Thank you Tatyana!
To say that she goes the "extra mile" is an understatement. In both situations she helped us navigate a highly competitive bidding war. She gave us immensely valuable insight into the Brookline real estate market, what we should bid, what was enough and what was simply lacking. I can honestly say that her expertise is really unmatched in this market. She is a client advocate, a confidante, and is an extremely professional Real Estate Agent in Brookline. She provides a quick response and strategic advice. In addition, she helped us rent out our first home in Brookline once it was no longer our primary residence. I was able to witness the volume of work with which she approached these real estate transactions. I very much doubt any other realtor would have exerted so much effort on our behalf and it paid off with excellent results. I would recommend her without hesitation to anyone who wants to buy or sell a house or condo in Brookline or to rent one as well.
! Tatyana is the top Brookline Real Estate agent who specializes in homes and condos. She had already sold two other units in my 7 unit condo building over the past few years, having gotten incredibly high prices for both, so I already had her name in my contacts. Tatyana is a consummate professional and she is with you together as a team for the entire process. We had to delay putting our unit on the market because of some family health issues and Tatyana was wonderful. She was able to help us time our showing and sale so that we did not miss the top of the market, despite the challenges we faced. Her negotiating skills are extraordinary. She is able to bring excellent buyers to your property. She is highly focused on all the details that matter. She has a reach that is unsurpassed because of her network, websites, professional videos and photos etc. She also has an extensive network of painters, rug shampoo people etc that help you quickly get your unit ready for market while still maintaining very high quality. She is very focused on each client's needs, despite her being such a busy realtor. She really does work 24/7 and is always available no matter what issues come up. I always felt that she put our needs first despite how busy she is. No other client's needs ever interfered in anything we needed to do. We always felt like her only client. She was masterful in arranging and running our open house so that we got the highest price even with only one weekend of showings. She even recommended our mover to us who turned out to be fantastic and a lower price than any other mover we got quotes from. Don't hesitate to use Tatyana for your Brookline Real Estate needs. We are so glad we had her name!!!
She was very professional representing the seller but at the same time she was very helpful to us, providing information we needed. After that sale for a few years we communicated with Tatyana on many issues ranging from finding the best people to paint our home to suggestions on buying a new condo or house in Brookline when we decided to buy 4 years later. Of course, it was a no brainier for us to hire Tatyana as our real estate agent because of her outstanding knowledge of the Brookline real estate market; her willingness to provide comprehensive and frequent reports of potential properties; and her advice and guidance in terms of buying a home. There were not a lot of homes for sale in Brookline at the time. When the ideal home came on the market, Tatyana implemented her price strategy, including suggesting an escalation clause in our offer. It allowed us to increase our offer once the seller received another offer that was higher than ours. It was very helpful because we didn't want to overpay but at the same time we did not want to lose the property. Thanks to Tatyana's negotiation skills our final offer was accepted (over five other offers!). During the entire home buying process Tatyana was available anytime day or night. This was very important since we were not available all the time for checking out things. Going forward, we now plan to hire Tatyana to rent out our first apartment.
Coolidge Corner real estate is always in high demand and we felt we were very lucky that she was a listing agent for the Brookline home we bought. Tatyana performed as a highly professional real estate agent who was dedicated to the seller and at the same time very honest to us, the buyers. In other words, she is a realtor who can make a win-win for the parties after getting to know them and their goals/interests. Since then we stayed in touch with Tatyana and used her as our buyer's agent in Brookline and seller's agent in Boston. She knows the Brookline real estate market and surrounding area incredibly well. She also has a great network of professionals including plumbers, electricians, handymen etc. and we call her first when we need any repairs. And another nice touch of hers is that each year we are still getting birthday cards from her. Tatyana is a really devoted real estate agent. I would highly recommend her to anyone selling or buying Brookline real estate and Boston!
She was patient and very focused on identifying the right house that fit my family (with two kids) needs -- home right next to a park, school, walking distance to the subway, grocery store, restaurants, yet in a quiet area. She clearly knows the Brookline real estate market. If you are interested in Brookline real estate Tatyana is the person to call.
Tatyana saved My House from Foreclosure! I am still not sure if it was a dream that I sold my house. January 1st, 2010 was the day when my property was to be sold at public auction as a foreclosed home in Boston. I am very happy to say with tremendous help of a terrific real estate agent from Brookline, MA I avoided foreclosure and my home was closed today with enough money not only to pay my loan but with money left for me. After I got a notice from the bank (Wells Fargo) regarding a foreclosure sale I was trying to sell my condo by my own. The offers I got were even less then the assessed value. At the last minute - two weeks before the auction I called Tatyana. She was highly encouraging. Within three days my condo for sale was listed on MLS and advertised on multiple social media websites online. She sold my home from the first open house (through the bidding war) with much more over asking price and the highest price in the neighborhood and also arranged for me to stay in my house for free for another three months after the closing. Then, she went far beyond. She was my main contact with the bank to get payoff and avoid the foreclosure action. I felt she is acting as my real estate agent, my attorney and a person who works very hard for me. She was the main key to stopping a foreclosure sale. I was amazed at her persistence and knowledge of real estate. I recommend her to anyone who is thinking to buy or sell real estate especially the sellers and buyers who want to be represented with the special attention she provides
Our house in Newton was on the market for just four days and Tatyana successfully had it sold. Her guidance and outstanding negotiation skills resulted in a highly competitive offer after the first open house, with very favorable terms. Throughout the entire selling process, Tatyana handled so many details efficiently with meticulous attention and care, leaving us amazed. She recommended a contractor and handyman who completed repairs before we listed the house. Tatyana's professional photographs were gorgeous (transformed our home), and the video and virtual tour she created showcased it beautifully. Tatyana is a Tech-Savvy Realtor. She posted our listing on numerous social media websites, resulting in a high level of online visibility. It almost felt like we were her top priority, although it appears she treats all her sellers and buyers with the same exceptional care. Tatyana possesses all the essential attributes you need in a realtor. Her incredible knowledge of real estate and up-to-date housing trends, coupled with her professionalism and exceptional negotiation skills, make her stand out. We will always recommend Tatyana to anyone looking for a knowledgeable, caring, and honest realtor!
Tatyana is second to none! When seeking the utmost professional real estate guidance, knowledge and honest advice, you will always feel confident because you are in the best hands with Tatyana from beginning to end. Her proven track record with years of realtor experience and expertise will set you at ease in what can otherwise be highly stressful in such a competitive market. Location is her forte and she knows every detail of every neighborhood and just about every property especially in Brookline. Due to her consistent dedication, patience, personal commitment and determination in helping us find our condo in Coolidge Corner, Brookline, without once feeling pressured, she is the reason that we are so grateful and fortunate to be living so happily in our beautiful new home. Tatyana negotiated fairly and expediently for us with the seller and we had complete faith that we were making the right choices. Even after our purchase, Tatyana continued to be so generous of her time and assisted us in terms of providing many recommendations for master craftspeople aligned with our taste, to help us make this condo our own. Outstanding, trustworthy and dependable, Tatyana is lovely and a genuine pleasure to work with.
She helped us to sell our condo at Coolidge Corner, and then found the perfect home for our daughter also at the heart of Coolidge Corner, Brookline. She is very responsible, always stays in touch, and knows literally everything about real estate especially Brookline real estate. For example, when we were bidding for our daughter's apartment she suggested to use an 'escalation clause' with our offer - which worked perfectly (If you don't know what an 'escalation clause' is, ask Tatyana). Highly recommend her to everybody!
She is kind, patient, and compassionate. Her knowledge of Brookline is unparalleled and she is well-versed with all of the intricacies of the home-buying process. We originally found Tatyana from her excellent online reviews and are happy to say that she exceeded all of our expectations. We highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home in the Brookline area. We started working with Tatyana in February 2019. Due to our full-time jobs, it was difficult for us to attend many open houses. Tatyana was able to schedule private showings for her us to accommodate our busy schedules. She made herself available to us 24/7 and was always very prompt in responding to us (no matter the time of the day or day of the week). With her guidance, we placed a fair offer on a home in March 2019 that was accepted. We closed in April 2019 and the closing process was very smooth and efficient. This was because Tatyana went above and beyond for us at every step of the way. She knew of every possible issue that could arise and made sure that we took the necessary steps to avoid them. We could not have asked for a better experience and are so glad that we chose to work with Tatyana!
Being a Brookline Realtor for many years, she is extremely knowledgeable about Brookline real estate, provides excellent and thoughtful advice, and knows the ins and outs of the home buying process. She was tireless in helping us investigate every opportunity in the extremely challenging Brookline real estate market. When we did find a home her negotiating guidance saved us thousands of dollars and showed us how to win against a few different bids from other buyers. She navigates you throughout all phases of home buying from home hunting, providing recommendations on offer, price and even after the deal was over on real estate taxes and other aspects. She also was able to rent out our first condo within a month even though it was winter time. Tatyana is an extremely hard-working Brookline real estate agent: you just cannot do better. We recommend her enthusiastically. Frankly, we are missing Tatyana’s positive attitude and definitely will call her on all and any of our future Brookline real estate sales and purchases. Tatyana is the best real estate agent and person with whom we have ever worked.
She manifested intelligence, dedication, and integrity at a level I have rarely seen. She saved me when I had a condo in Brookline that had sat for 6 weeks without being rented out by Sept 1 (a key date in the local real estate market). I had worked with a prior real estate agent who did nothing—truly nothing—for 6 weeks and I realized I had to act quickly and switch to a new agent. I was so very lucky that Tatyana was willing to work with me – within days she did more than the other person had done in 6 weeks. She helped me identify what I needed to do to improve the look of the unit; she gave me names of contractors, painters, etc; she was able to drop by to let the workmen in at times when I couldn’t; she showed the unit to numerous people and ultimately found a terrific tenant within a few weeks; she moved the paperwork forward quickly and negotiated all of the details w/ the prospective tenant. It was, quite simply, an incredibly positive process. Tatyana is, in short, a gem of a person who earned my trust quickly and increased it every step of the way. Thank you Tatyana
She is professional, accessible, resourceful, and extremely knowledgeable of the marketplace. With her guidance, my offer was accepted, out beating 3 other offers. I highly recommend Tatyana.
She is very knowledgeable and committed to doing her job. Not only is she a great real estate agent, but she is just a wonderful person as well. She helped us find our dream condo in Coolidge Corner. She contacted people she knew in the building that we had our eye on and found us an amazing unit that wasn't listed on the MLS. Only the experienced and dedicated brokers will go to these lengths. Thanks Tatyana!
Most recently she was my buyer's agent for a single family home in Chestnut Hill. Even during this seller's market in Brookline she was able to negotiate a price below my maximum budget. I was truly impressed and thankful for the money she saved me during the bidding process on the home. I definitely recommend Tatyana for her knowledge of Coolidge Corner, Chestnut Hill, and Newton areas.
Right from the beginning, Tatyana demonstrated incredible professionalism and market insight. One of the most impressive aspects was how quickly she acted – thanks to her promptness and keen eye for opportunities, we were the very first to view the condo as soon as it hit the market. This proactive approach gave us a significant advantage. Moreover, Tatyana's expertise shone through during the offer process. She provided invaluable guidance on crafting a compelling offer, which led to our offer being accepted even before the first open house. This was beyond our expectations and clearly showed Tatyana's deep understanding of the real estate dynamics and negotiation skills. Her communication was top-notch throughout, always keeping us informed and comfortable. Tatyana truly went above and beyond, ensuring that our buying experience was smooth, efficient, and successful. We couldn't be happier with our new home and the service we received. We highly recommend Tatyana to anyone looking for a real estate agent who is not only knowledgeable and experienced but also genuinely committed to their clients' best interests.
When the time seemed right to sell this ripe piece of Brookline real estate, Tatyana sold herself to me over the phone. She was as cooperative and supportive as any business person could be. She held open house events repeatedly, worked with the greatest tact with some difficult tenants, held her ground on my behalf when a deal went sour, and ultimately sold the place for substantially more than the listed price. I have had considerable real estate experience as a builder and investor and I am happy to publish this opinion: Tatyana is the best real estate agent I have ever worked with.
Tatyana was an amazing resource: she knew which units were available and gave us a nuanced history of recent sales in the area. She promptly sent us information and made herself available at all times for questions -- and we had many! She is by far the most knowledgeable Brookline realtor we have encountered. Should we ever decide to move, we will certainly sell the condo through her. If we need to buy another Brookline condo, she has the best pulse on the market. I highly recommend her!
First, we bought a house in Newton, MA in 2008 with her help. We were very happy with our purchase with the terms she arranged. Her wonderful attitude, friendliness, and skills made us come back to her again when we made a decision to sell our house. We chose Tatyana to be the listing agent to sell the Newton house and also represented us as a buyer agent on a new home. She did a great job helping us orchestrate the sale and purchase, and coordinated both closings to be on the same day. Our house sold in just a few days due to Tatyana’s unique, focused marketing and she went beyond our expectations negotiating the price for our new home. The entire sale process was very smooth.
I was very interested in purchasing a condo in Brookline, MA. I hired her as a buyer agent and soon learned that I could not have made a better choice. Tatyana has an incredible ability to identify buyers and sellers through her extensive network. Through her outstanding effort and contacts, she found a non-MLS condo for sale in Coolidge Corner in a luxury building that I purchased as an investment property. She is unquestionably on the top of the new listings coming into the Brookline and Newton real estate market. Subsequently, I bought a house in Newton Center, MA also through the efforts of Tatyana. I would highly recommend her as an outstanding Realtor and cannot thank her enough!
Tatyana sold our condo in Brookline in 2012. Before we met her, we had it on the market for six months with another realtor. We couldn't sell it. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you Tatyana for what you did. We still can't believe that you sold our property at the first Open House! Tatyana has a unique set of talents: great knowledge, intelligence and personality. She will succeed where many others fail and she isn't afraid to do extra work to meet her clients’ needs. Working with Tatyana is just so rewarding. She is very thoughtful, sincere, creative and is totally dedicated!
The experience was amazing and Tatyana was absolutely fantastic. Throughout the process she exemplifies the best qualities of a top real estate agent. She was professional and trustworthy, knowledgeable and thoughtful, and always kept our interests and priorities in mind. In our specific situation, the condo search spanned into a multi-year process. After understanding our needs, Tatyana constantly sent us info of condos that met our needs, including off-market units. Even though our process was prolonged, she never pushed us for decisions. Instead, for every condo that we showed interest, she took time to go through the pros and cons of each unit and provide us thorough and relevant pricing information. Her knowledge of the Brookline market was certainly remarkable. Even at times when info was limited, she always tried hard to find out for us. With Tatyana’s exceptional negotiation skills, we got a very good deal that met our needs. But Tatyana’s help didn’t stop there. After we bought the condo, she generously shared a lot of great info and tips to help with our renovation project. She was a total life saver and helped make the entire process a breeze. In all, we are extremely grateful to Tatyana and would highly recommend her to anyone who is in search for an outstanding Brookline real estate agent! Throughout the process she exemplifies the best qualities of a top real estate agent.
She was cordial both over the phone and in person and was eager to help any way she could. She helped me find a great apartment in Brookline near Coolidge Corner that fit my needs well as I had described them to her. She seemed very committed to getting her clients the best deal possible and for that I can't thank her enough!
Brookline is a sellers market where home buying is very competitive. After losing several bids to properties in Brookline, Tatyana found a seller who was selling their own property. She got us in before the property hit the market and the day before the property's first open house. Due to Tatyana's tenaciousness and diligence we were able to secure an acceptance to our offer. If I buy or sell a property, I will use Tatyana again.
We chose Tatyana as our real estate agent due to her caring nature and knowledge of the Brookline MA real estate market. After viewing a few condos Tatyana was able to ascertain exactly what we wanted to purchase. Brookline is a sellers market and purchasing a condo is very competitive. Twice we attended open houses and lost to higher bids. Tatyana was instrumental to winning our third bid on a Coolidge Corner condo. From her connections and knowledge of the market, she was able to find and get us access to a property that was a few days before its open house. Tatyana instructed us on the best competitive price for unit and we immediately made an offer. Although reluctant to sell prior to the open house, the sellers accepted our offer due to Tatyana's excellent negotiating skills.
From the very beginning, Tatyana was very welcoming, down to earth, and full of information about the housing market. That was especially helpful for someone coming from another country and knowing little or nothing about the local market! As a Brookline real estate agent, Tatyana provides details from location pros/cons, to condo history, to value of specific aspects of a property; all of which makes a difference when trying to buy in a hyped market with a reasonable budget. Our situation was additionally complicated by having a toddler around and lengthy mortgage times. Tatyana was very patient, really nice with our son, and tried to accommodate our requests. It took us a while to find the right property, but Tatyana helped us all along with everything housing related, to the closing and beyond. With her extensive list of contacts she helped us select the attorney, inspector, movers, contractors, etc. We highly recommend Tatyana to anyone buying or selling Brookline homes and condos!
Her expertise about Brookline and, especially, her deep knowledge of the buildings in the Coolidge Corner area helped us not only find a property we really liked, but also get our offer accepted very quickly. She was well prepared, detail oriented, and worked around the clock to represent our best interests. In the end, Tatyana proved herself to be a terrific partner, an excellent negotiator, and we look forward to working with her again in the future.
As an experienced DIYer, I listed my condo for sale by owner. Lots of interest, but months passed by and we weren’t getting any reasonable offers. We were constantly low-balled by buyers trying to take advantage. At one of our open houses, Tatyana, the Brookline real estate agent walked in to take a look and said: “I might have a buyer. I know someone who is looking for a condo in Brookline like yours.” I was very skeptical because there’s simply no magic. But Tatyana said: “just give me a chance.” It took me two weeks to process the thought, but since no offers were coming in, I decided to give Tatyana a call. We scheduled a showing with a potential buyer. Then they came back with Tatyana again. And in 7 days we had a very reasonable offer that we were very glad to accept! And thanks to Tatyana, the transaction went very smoothly. She acted as both seller and buyer agent and did absolutely great in both roles! She helped to organize inspection, smoothly sign purchase and sale agreement, clarify all questions with the town hall and fire department, clear for closing and answer many, many questions that both parties had. I am very glad that we met Tatyana, a realtor in Brookline and grateful for her excellent real estate matchmaking skills! I look forward to Tatyana’s help for all our future real estate transactions!
We recently moved into a Brookline condo that we absolutely love, basically all thanks to her. We briefly interacted with Tatyana about a year ago about another unit in the same building but she remembered that we are interested in the area and reached out when this unit became available - we were surprised she remembered and delighted by the unit. Once we decided to make an offer her years of experience as real estate agent in Brookline was invaluable, she alerted us to several issues that we would have missed as first time buyers. Her work ethic was impressive, for example, she prepared our offer on a Friday evening near midnight and organised a home inspection on short notice over a weekend. Tatyana also has a great network that makes the purchasing process easier, from home inspector and mortgage brokers to lawyers, we were very happy with all of her recommendations. We were extremely grateful for all her help during the process and would highly recommend her.
Before meeting Tatyana I put my condo for sale in Brookline with another realtor in March. It was sitting on the market for 45 days with no offers or at least no offers presented to me in writing. I found Tatyana online. She has proven herself as an outstanding realtor who is an expert in Boston/ Brookline real estate market. Tatyana was very strategic with the listing price from the beginning. As a result, she sold my house from the first open house at $37,000 over asking price. I felt very lucky to have her represent me as my seller agent. I felt that she had my best interests at heart, truly helping me. And because she is so personable and caring, Tatyana is a pleasure to work with!! We continue talking on the phone about real estate issues which has been very helpful to me. Seriously, if I ever buy or sell a home again I will follow her anywhere.
She is always available for you and she will research on any question you may have. She has a great understanding of the entire process and provides great advice specially if you are a first owner. She explains every topic in great detail. You can call her anytime and she is either available or calls you immediately after. She is very patient and she never put pressure on us to make any decision. It took us years literally to decide for a house. She got to know us very well and understood our drivers. She did really care of us making the right decision. We highly recommend Tatyana; she will exceed your expectations all the way in the process and you will discover how much she really cares about you and to excel in her job. Thanks Tatyana!!
Myself and my extended family have dealt with Tatyana on numerous occasions, buying and selling real estate. We have bought investment property with Tatyana which we are very happy with. She took us to see many properties and gave us honest opinions of them so that we could make the appropriate choice for us. She is very thorough, a great negotiator and always there for her clients.
