I am very much aware they were worried about my doing a review. A month or so before my place closed Tiffany said "We want you to be happy"..I replied without pause. "Oh no..that can never happen..let's just get this done". I don't have the energy to go through everything..as it was long and complex. I will state merely a few things. First of all, I started with Debra Miller. The old Foreigner song "cold as ice" kept going through my head when I talked with her. I was not a person to her. I was a house to unload as quickly as possible. Maybe it's because it is in the low-end..like about 155K. How do you feel when you give someone your business...your home..to sell where 6% commission is given and your realtor is phony, cold, and obviously completely lacks sensitivity. I had 4 purchase agreements fall through. The very first one I got and they came quickly. Listed at 155K (it should be been listed higher..watch sellers..if they tell you you have to give the buyer 3% of the purchase agreement right away..it needs to be built into the list price). Yes, she mentioned it when I met her...but it hadn't sunk in and when I heard the offer she was pushing on me was 145K and I had to immediately give away 3% (4,350) bringing the price to about 140K I was angry and dumbfounded. Also very stressed because the day she called was the moment after I left the closing of my new house in a new state and just arrived at this house with my movers. She had the nerve to say "don't be unreasonable". Never say that to someone who has immediately given away 10K off their home which is beautiful for it's size and range with features you can't find anywhere for that price. I switched to working with Tiffany. Told her I will never speak to Debra again (and there was well more snotty remarks from her before that). Tiffany is better to work with. She is friendly and appears to care how you feel. However, as time went on and although she much better interpersonal skills, they took great pics and made a great video out of my home...she too spoke to me as I would expect the buyer's realtor would speak to her or me for that matter. She ...in a friendly way...kept trying to get me give more away. I then got my own home inspection done. Thank god I did. I spent $300 on it. And it found minor, very fixable things that cost me a mere $600 to repair (and I say that with sarcasm). Typical wear and tear things that did not in any way outshine the vaulted ceilings, huge windows, privacy fence and the lowest association fee in the whole east side of $115/mo. My home was in fine shape. So I fixed those little things because I needed to know why the other PAs were falling through and even they said it's not about the house. But I had to know for sure. Here is only one example of the insincere crap from Tiffany. She contacts me with the last, final purchase agreement that is now the new owner. They did a home inspection..after mine. She said "your water heater is rusted out!". I was shocked, befuddled...I looked at my HI and that wasn't anywhere...she sent me a pic from the buyer's HI....And guess what...there was a very small ring of rust at the bottom of the water heater. It's in a crawl space. And not a" on your stomach crawl space"..but a tarped, clean, on all 4's or hunched over crawl space. Basically, it's as good as it gets for crawl spaces. I saw the pic and note from their HI and it was obvious to me that the note of 9 years old on it was the reason they were trying to get a new water heater. Water heaters in crawl spaces emit a little steam and naturally, over time will have a small ring of rust. It's just the way she spoke to me that was obvious she was over stating the issue and wanted me to cave on paying for a new water heater. I mean really. The house is in nearly perfect shape. And I've already given away 3% off the purchase price and fixed the little tiny things..putting caulk in certain places, etc. Little stuff. And now they want a new water heater AND a home warranty and she is aggressively trying to get me to do it. Hell no. I suggested they add it to the purchase price and that seemed to work out. But after my suggestion I hung up and immediately realized the implications of that..meaning 3% of it to buyer and 6% of it to the realtors. I called back right away with this realization and she told me that she thought I knew all along this would naturally happen as a result. As I am such an expert on real estate sales. She huffed and pufffed and I let HER have the 6% but she "ate" the 3% to the buyer. How dare she think I knew what the implications were. I told her I was bending over backwards to please everyone. I would never, ever, ever, never ,ever recommend this team to anyone. And thank god it is over. There so much more but I'm surprised I made it this far in explaining some things. Good luck to you all. Less ... More

Tiffany listed our house for us last summer. She was very helpful with the prep for getting our house ready. Once we had an offer, she on top of getting the repairs and paperwork done.

Deb was great she showed us so many houses we thought she would get annoyed with us but she did not. She found us our dream house, and it was for under what we had to spend! Thank you so much Deb, you are great. Anthony and Tracy Sorenson

I absolutely loved working with the Tiffany Larson Realty Team. From start to finish, my wife and I felt informed and taken care of. Tiffany not only knew what to list our house for, but because of the quality of work she did with staging and photography, we received multiple offers for significantly more than our asking price. I absolutely would, and already have, referred Tiffany Larson Realty because they are amazingly-qualified, professional, have a tremendous work ethic, integrity and they get the work done. Less ...

I was pregnant when we started looking for our first home. Tiffany and her team knew how much we wanted to be in a move in ready home before the baby was born and worked tirelessly to try to achieve that.....We closed five days after my sons birth.

After being in our home for 13 years, my husband and I were ready to sell and had lost our prior real estate agent contact information. Tiffany was recommended to us by a fellow collegue. We connected immediately with Tiffany and she understood both what we wanted from the sale of our home and what kind of new home we were looking for. We weren't sure where to start to get our house in selling condition. She recommeneded a home stager for us. With our hard work and Tiffany's resources, we were able to sell our home in 2 days! She also listened to what we were looking for in a new home. Tiffany had done her homework prior to us looking at homes. Because of that, we were able to find the home of our dreams during the first day looking! Great job! Less ... More

Tiffany is a wonderful Real estate agent. My philosophy was that "if Tiffany could not sell our home, nobody can." She is a very honest and dependable business person who really cares about your buying and selling experience. In our experience with her we found that she was not afriad to give honest, helpful advice, and even a pep talk when things got a little tough. Tiffany knows how to market and sell homes, we had almost 60 showings in a month. It was hard, trying time on our family but Tiffany's compassion and experiece gave us confidence to push thru in the end. I am sure Tiffany could sell just about any home, and you would not be disappointed in choosing her as your Real Estate agent. Less ... More

Tiffany is a professional in her field. Her attention to detail, her follow through and her listening skills are very highly rated by my wife and I. She is very good at asking questions to gather information about us as clients and cared about our success. Tiffany is very skilled at marketing the house using many different systems to get the information about the house out to a wide population of people. She limits herself to giving very thoughtful real estate advice only and does not go beyond her expertise. She also has a list of wonderful vendors to assist with any aspect of preparing your home to show its best side to perspective customers. Tiffany returns calls quickly with answers to all of the questions we had. Bottom line is she is a player in this business of real estate. Less ... More

We decided to put our houtse on the Market and within a day we were already being bombarded with showing requests and they didn't stop for two weeks when we accepted an offer. Tiffany and her team do an amazing job marketing homes. Our neighbor, who has virtually the same house, had their home for sale before us and is still struggling to sell. We haven't seen them have any showings but our home had become virtually a revolving door for potentil buyers. The whole process went very quick and Tiffany was amazing. We struggled to find our new home and with the closing date looming we were concerned that we might be homeless for a little while. Not Tiffany, she remained calm, found great homes to show us and got us into our new home with the same closing date as our first house so we were not going to be out on the street. This is my second time working with Tiffany. She helped me buy my first house three years ago and we were able find exactly what I wanted the first time we went out and I was in the house within 30 days. With our new house from the time the entire process started to when we closed on the new house was a two months total. I would highly recommend Tiffany to anyone serious about selling their home. She doesn't mess around, works extremely hard for you and gets the results you are looking for quickly. Less ... More

Listed home, but didn't sell
I was into the foreclosure process, and was very reluctant to do a short sale but Tiffany took time to personally listen to my story. She answered all my questions about a short sale. Once I decided to pursue a short sale, she was "on it." We worked together and she put me in touch with a real estate law firm that helped negotiate my two mortgages. She was very professional and so personable. Every time I called her she got right back to me. I felt comfortable and was able to trust her in a day and age when that is hard to do. She did my short sale in record time! Unbelievable! I would refer anyone to her who is looking for a good realtor, who needs special assistance with a property and certainly a short sale. I say this in all seriousness. Less ... More

Tiffany is a fabulous Realtor! I ran into her by accident after my past Realtor was failing at selling my property. She had met my father-in-law at a networking event...she was new to the industry at the time. After meeting her, I had a hunch that there was something special and that she could get it done. Her plan/strategy was excellent and the house sold within a couple weeks after sitting on the market for over 6 months with my old Realtor. I was amazed. When I moved back to the Twin Cities in 2009, I also used her to buy a house and was thrilled with the insight and thoughts she had on homes that we looked at. I recommend Tiffany to everyone I know, she's a phenomenal Realtor and a great person. Less ... More

Tiffany helped me sell my townhouse and build a new home. She staged the home for sale and it looked amazing. The building process was not smooth, and Tiffany had our backs the entire time. She represented us so we didn't have to deal with the drama of the builder and other agent. I hope not to go through this process again, but will always recommend Tiffany's services.

My experience with Tiffany was fantastic. She really knows her stuff. She is confident and direct with you about the real estate environment. I knew that I would get an honest opinion and recommendation from her about my personal situation and that's exactly what I was looking for. I trust her and would recommend her to anyone!
