Shawna-Lei Tamayose understands that buying or selling a home is one of the largest milestones in people's lives, which is why she makes herself readily available to her clients at all times. Shawna feels it's very important to provide honest insight on the process, and a thorough education on everything it entails. "From pricing and negotiations to the intricate details that make each home unique, I make sure my buyers, sellers and renters are well prepared for the steps ahead of them in our work together. My goal is to build trust and credibility while making them feel secure that our relationship is not transactional alone."
As in any relationship, communication is a key ingredient for Shawna – and it's truly what sets her apart. She maintains an ongoing open dialogue with her clients throughout the entire real estate journey, as well as a standard practice of business based on integrity, professionalism, and protecting their best interests.
With her background in finance, banking and consulting, Shawna has an intimate knowledge of the financial process and keen attention to detail. She's a natural at working productively with clients, finding creative solutions to their needs, and keeping her composure no matter how stressful or complex the situation.
