About Tamar

Customer service has long been in my life, as I was a flight attendant for 20 years prior to joining the ranks of real estate agents. I love travel and connecting with people of all backgrounds, so clipping my wings in 2006 to help people find a place to call home was an easy transition. They say that the learning curve is never ending in real estate. So true! Every sale is so different, I love the challenge of helping folks navigate what can sometimes be a complex business of buying and selling. I’ve helped people buy and sell properties in all ranges all over the greater Seattle area. In the 10 years I’ve been in real estate, I’ve always kept in mind what is really important – making sure my clients know they have my 100% commitment and experience to help them in all aspects of buying or selling their home.

I grew up in the Portland area and have a Bachelor’s of Science Degree from Portland State University. My educational background is in art, interior design and architecture. I’m passionate about music and the arts, and I have a keen eye for the design potential of homes. In my spare time, I enjoy making fused and stained glass. I love the outdoors and hiking too. Travel, of course when time allows. I have two wonderful daughters and a very enthusiastic dog Buddy who keeps us all on our toes!

Household tool I can't live without!

Clorox cleaner with bleach and a good grout brush. It can make an old bathroom look new. Or at least newer - it won’t change that lovely mint-green tub and sink!

  • Sold a single family home in 2017 for $615,000 in Seattle, WA.

    Tamar helped me sell an investment property.  She came to our first meeting enthusiastic and well prepared, and every interaction I had with her after that was the same.  She proposed an efficient sale process, arranged for the staging and photographs, gave me good and thoughtfully critical advice on finishing the house.   The sale went very well–she brought in 9 offers, all way above asking price.  I can’t wait to work with her again.

  • Bought a Single Family home in 2017 for approximately $675K in University District, Seattle, WA.

    We had a great experience working with Tamar. I couldn’t believe how responsive she was to all of our requests and questions, and she knew far more than we ever hoped to about the process of buying a home.

    She knew the area very well, but we happened to know the particular area that we were looking in even better because we already lived there. 🙂

  • Sold a Single Family home in 2016 in Ellensburg, WA.

    Tamar has been our real estate broker as a buyer once and a seller twice. Tamar is knowledgeable, understanding, honest, fun and extremely thorough. On our most recent transaction, we relocated before our home went on the market. We were confident from previous experience that Tamar would take care of everything and communicate throughout the process. We highly recommend Tamar!

  • Sold a Single Family home in 2016 for approximately $425K in Bothell, WA.

    Tamar was a shining star in our entire moving process. She gave great advice about a few small things we could do and was able to sell our house for tens of thousands more than another agent we met with had suggested. For me, I thought selling the house would be the most stressful part of the process, but Tamar was incredible and we are very happy with the results. Highly recommended!

  • Although we ended up purchasing a house directly from a seller, not through a broker, we had been working with Tamar Baber. Tamar quickly understood what our needs were and was most helpful in our hunt for a home. She was patient with us, we were first time buyers, but she also had a kind way of steering us in a wise direction. She is very respectful, courteous and professional.

  • Bought a Condo home in 2016 in Robinswood, Bellevue, WA.

    We have Tamar’s Service to buy our home couple of weeks back. She is highly professional, very talented and organized in showing homes with my time schedules. She is cleary understands our budget and boundaries, helped to find a nice unit in a nice location.
    We are a first time home buyer in USA and we did not know where to start how to review the units, Market value etc. She helped us from the day one of our hunt to the closure. She has great negotiation skills to work with sellers to carve you out financial benefits.

    Very interestingly, she helped us to find out a right lender who gave the nice deal. Without any hesitation she showed us many units and the way she explain the details is truly awesome.

    We really appreciate her patience to answer our queries.

    We highly recommend Tamar to all our reference buyers , sellers and friends.

  • Bought a Single Family home in 2016 for approximately $575K in Overlake, Redmond, WA.

    Excellent service and professionalism by Tamar.Tamar was sincere and helpful from beginning to end. Just the type of person you need when looking for your first home.She was flexible with timings and availability when I requested to visit the property at the weekend.She gave us her honest view and which helped us taking informative decision.
    Would definitely recommend.

  • Bought a Single Family home in 2016 for approximately $325K in Everett, WA.

    Future Buyers:
    As a first time buyer I really had no clue of where to start and what the important questions i needed answered before putting in a offer or deciding if a home was a good fit for me or not. At first I went with an agent I had never researched but I “thought” we had a connection. Before anything decide whether or not the agent has the best interest at heart for you whether its as a seller or a buyer. My first agent kept telling me I was going to lose the house and I needed to put an offer over asking with every home I had a glimpse interest in. I quickly realized I was going no where with her and found Tamar Baber after calling into her office to ask for a home. I met her at a home I was interested in and not only did she explain the home buying process crystal clear but she also pointed out things in the home that were good and bad. Tamar really knows what she’s doing and she is not PUSHY in anyway on buying the first home right away. When buying a home you want the realtor to be persistent and reachable. She would let me know if she was going to be unreachable for a couple of hours but she always found a way to communicate with me. I did see about 5 homes with Tamar and with every single one she gave me her honest opinion on my chances of getting the home in this high demand market and although it wasn’t always the best news to hear at least I wouldn’t get my hopes up on a house that was going to go past my price range. I actually only had to write 2 offers and the second offer was accepted because of Tamar’s excellent work. She knows how to make your offer competitive and that’s something that is key in the home buying process. She helped me though the whole process from beginning to end and even after the home closed. Tamar is a excellent real estate agent in short words. I recommend her to EVERYONE!

  • Bought a single family home in 2016 for $434,158 in Seattle, WA.
    I just bought my first house and Tamar was great to work with. Very patient and knowledgeable, and she always had time for me when I had questions or concerns about the process. I’d highly recommend these folks.
  • Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $425K in Rainier Beach, Seattle, WA.

    Tamar did a fantastic job in selling my parents’ house for my brothers and I. It was an older home that presented some problems, but she was great in working through the issues. She worked hard to get the job done and was extremely responsive and easy to work with.

  • Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $575K in Mercer Island, WA.

    I met Tamar at an open house on Mercer Island when I was considering selling my house there. She gave me some advice regarding my home, and has been terrific in the 5 years that I have worked with her. In 2009 she worked with me to prepare my house to put it on the market. When it did not sell for my asking price, she did not pressure me to sell it at a lower price. Rather, she remained in contact and kept me in mind as the housing market recovered. Indeed, she let me know 5 years later when she found a buyer for it who was willing to pay my asking price. She was highly professional and went beyond the call of duty to make it very easy for me to sell my house in 2015. She took care of everything including negotiation of a postponed closing date that worked for me. She is a pleasure to work with, and is knowledgeable and efficient. I look forward to working with her again in the future.

  • Bought a Multi Family home in 2015 in Mercer Island, WA.

    Having met Tamar at an open house we knew right then that she would be our listing agent when we decided to sell our Seattle home. We sought her out to help us with searching for property that has good school near by. Not only did she put up with our ever changing criteria, but she did so with professinalism and sensibility that made us feel at ease to find the right home. We appreciate her no pressure style, and especially her insight on condominium properties which have helped us greatly in decision making. We truely feel that she has our back through out the experience and were easy to reach. We are very pleased and looking forward to be working with Tamar for many transaction to come.

  • Sold a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $400K in University District, Seattle, WA.

    It took only two weeks to sell my condo near University of Washington at Seattle. It is hard to imagine this was done so quickly and smoothly as I stayed in my home in Boston. Tamar guided me through the process. She is very professional and know how to get the best value for sellers.

  • Bought and sold a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $275K in Grass Lawn, Redmond, WA.

    Tamar was a great agent; she helped us buy a new home and sell the previous home.
    She’s very knowledgable of the area and gives great tips on location and things to look for and anything that might affect resale value.
    She’s also very aware of the fair market price and really good in negotiations. We gave one offer before settling in our current home and her predictions about the house we gave the offer on was perfect. Also looking back at some of the other houses we checked out and her price predictions, she pretty much predicted the prices of each of them correctly.

    She’s also always on time and very responsive to emails and phone calls.

    We worked with another agent before Tamar and I would highly recommend working with her.

  • Sold a single family home in 2015 for $700,000 in Seattle, WA.

    Working with Tamar was amazing. She gets things done in a quick and efficient way. She was very personable and easy to work with. You can tell she has a lot of experience in this field because she handled my situation with ease (which I thought would be difficult). The Findwell office was very centrally located  and was very clean. I totally recommend Tamar.

  • Bought and sold a home in 2015 in Marymoore, Sammamish, WA 98074.

    Tamar is great! She is very helpful and responsive. She put my needs first and seek best interest for me. I would recommend her to anybody who wants to buy/sell the house and I will definitely choose her again!!

  • Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $300K in Broadview, Seattle, WA.

    I met Tamar in July, 2014. I was considering buying a place in Seattle or surrounding area. I was a walk in, and I’m sure like all business’s the sales person get’s more walk in’s or as I’ve heard them called “Tire Kickers.”
    I ended up leaving empty handed and I had Tamar working for a solid week before I told her maybe later, not now.
    I went back to Seattle Dec. 26th and called Tamar to “do it again” She was immediately in action, and after a week, I left Seattle telling Tamar to keep a look out and send me anything interesting. By Jan. 18th/15 she located exactly what I was looking for. She submitted a bid, on my behalf and I ended up paying less than my original offer, because of the inspector Tamar hired. He found enough things to get an extra 3 % off price.
    So I bought the place sight unseen because I trusted Tamar. If I didn’t trust her I would not have gone back to her, after the first day.
    I closed on Feb. 28th(Paid. for it), flew out March 5th and wow am I happy with every aspect of this deal.

  • Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $400K in Leschi, Seattle, WA.

    She is so personable and amazing to work with! Her knowledge of the market around the area was somewhat disappointing at times, as I relied on her to be the expert, but still found myself wondering if there was something I was missing. That said, her responsiveness is top-notch, and I felt like she was totally and completely selfless to make sure we were able to get all of the answers I needed. So great!

    She met with me on many weekends, evenings, and just other generally inconvenient times for most professionals–and as someone with my own 9 to 5, she was super flexible to make sure we could make it work.

  • Bought a single family home in 2014 for $865,000 in Seattle, WA.
    Sold a single family home in 2014 for $536,500 in Seattle, WA.

    Tamar was excellent across the board. She was always very professional, even when dealing with some difficult buyers.

    While selling my condo, she met me on my schedule and quickly provided a market assessment. As we went through the process of listing, she gave me good advice about what I should do to help my unit sell quickly. Once listed, we received 4 offers within a couple days during a time when the market was slowing down a little.

    Next, my fiancee and I started looking for a house. Tamar regularly updated us with new options in the areas we wanted and worked around our busy schedules for looking at houses. Once we put an offer on a house, the selling agent wanted to work through a non-standard process. Tamar went to bat for us and made sure we got the house under contract before doing our inspection. She also continued to follow up with the seller’s agent during a few repairs on the house.

    Finally, Tamar helped my fiancee sell her townhouse. The buyer seemed to always want the last word and was regularly irrational. Tamar worked through the issues and kept us from having to deal with much of the stress.

    All of our transactions closed on time and relatively pain-free (buying or selling a home can never be completely pain-free, right?). We can’t recommend Tamar enough for her thoroughness and professionalism.

  • Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $550K in Eastlake, Seattle, WA.

    Tamar recently helped me and my fiance with three real estate transactions – two sales and a purchase. She was a true professional throughout and gave honest and helpful advice, even when dealing with less professional counterparts on the other side of our transactions. She goes above and beyond, bringing staging items for sales like flowers and vases, and is a fierce negotiator. Five stars for Tamar!

  • Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $400K in Leschi, Seattle, WA.

    My “early 20’s” daughter and I were looking for a house or a Condo in the Seattle area. I am out of town so I could not be there to manage the process as well as I would have liked to. My daughter was also not experienced in real estate transactions. We met Tamar early in the process and she helped every step of the way. We happened to be in a hot market and made numerous offers before finally finding and “winning” the perfect spot.

    I have to credit Tamar for hanging in there with us as our needs changed over the period yet she kept plugging along until we finally landed one.

    I would recommend Tamar as she is easy to work with and is responsive to calls, emails and texts!!

  • Bought a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $375K in Central, Seattle, WA.

    Tamar did a great job representing me as a broker while I was on the market looking for my new home. She is professional, courteous, attention to detail, client focused and have her client’s best interest at her mind. Her knowledge and expertise in real estate, the market; along with her superb negotiation skills left me a very positive impression of her. I definetly recommend Tamar to any prospective homeowner in the market.

  • Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $925K in Mercer Island, WA.

    We used Tamar for the sale of our home this past week. From the start, she was a huge help. She helped us decide what needed to be done to present the house for sale in the best light, while minimizing the costs of those fixes. She helped us price the house correctly and react to changing market dynamics. She advertised the house well, and ran quite a number of open houses, both for local agents and buyers. She was timely, efficient, and appropriate in her dealings with offers, and shepherded us and the buyers through the closing process in the same manner. To be honest, this was a divorce sale, and Tamar had to deal with a number of issues that were truly beyond the usual domain of the realtor, but these could have derailed the sale and she handled them extremely well.
    I would highly recommend her to other sellers (and to buyers as well).

  • Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $925K in Mercer Island, WA.

    Tamar is an exceptionally skilled and knowledgeable Broker. She was incredibly responsive to questions and has in-depth knowledge of local real estate trends. Her assistance with the entire process was invaluable!

  • Sold a single family home in 2014 for $905,000 in Mercer Island, WA.

    Tamar Baber went above and beyond the call of duty to help get our house sold. She stuck with me every step of the way. Tamar has incredible knowledge of the local market (Mercer Island can be a rather unique place to buy and sell) and provided me with a market analysis that was simply incredible in the detail included. She knows who sold what, when, where and for how much!

    Tamar was always responsive to requests for assistance or to answer questions. She has an amazing ability to deal with buyers agents from initial offer to closing.

    I’d recommend Tamar and Findwell any time!

  • Bought a home in 2014 in Beacon Hill, Riverton-Boulevard Park, WA 98108.

    We highly recommend Tamar to all the buyers and sellers out there. We were a first time home buyer, and we didn’t know what to do. Tamar picked us up and explained to us in details. She guided us to a successful home and we really like it.

    To me, she is professional. Never being late, always answering calls or emails, and work so hard that I have seen her many times in the office after 8 pm. When we were looking for units, we went from North to South of Seattle. She is always there with you no matter the traffic. We have been working with her for five months, and I can tell you a lot of her in details. But the most important of all, she cares about you. She cares how well you live like your family.

    You may have seen or experienced a lot of real estate agents. But, if you are really looking for a service which you won’t forget, stop by Findwell and ask for Tamar Baber. We are not exaggerating. Again, our home buying experience tells us that you won’t regret looking for her as your agent.

  • Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $700K in Sammamish, WA.

    Tamar was referred to us by one of our friends and she helped us to navigate the crazy market in Seattle eastside. We have been extrememly happy with her service, her communication style, her urgency when needed and her overall professional approach to us. She never pushed us on any of the properties that we visited with her, but always provided a very balanced opinion when solicited. She also steered us away from properties that were highly likely to be sold above the listing price, something that we had told her initially that we won’t like to do. When we actually bid for the property that we bought, she advised us to make a last minute change in price based on the activities before the offer review deadline, which helped us to close the property at a price point that we wanted. All these attention to details and taking care of client’s interests are rare things in today’s red hot housing market. We would highly recommend her services and we definitely would use her when the time comes for our next transaction.

  • Listed, but didn't sell my Condo home in 2014 in Bothell, WA.

    I was very new, and very doubtful about my selling my condo. Tamar was very patient with me, and extremely helpful with all aspects of the listing and sale. She gave helpful recommendations, guided me through the whole process and seemed always available to answer or return my phone calls. I would definitely recommend her to a friend.

  • Bought a condo in 2014 for $730,000 in Seattle, WA.
    Sold a single family home in 2014 for $1,017,100 in Sammamish, WA.

    Tamar Baber was extremely patient and responsive. With the market so hot, and inventory so low, it was a challenge to find a condo that met our needs. Tamar worked with us tirelessly to track down the perfect place and to then handle all the details to make it happen.

    Selling our house was next and it sold in six days with five great offers to choose from. We couldn’t be more pleased with the buyers that purchased our home.

    We found Tamar to be a delightful blend of professionalism and personality and highly recommend her as someone who will be there as your personal guide to a great real estate transaction.

  • Bought vacant land in 2013 for $225,000 in Redmond, WA.
    Sold a single family home in 2013 for $922,000 in Redmond, WA.

    Tamar helped immensely with analyzing the market and pricing our house optimally. We ended up getting multiple bids and $20k over the asking price. We’ve worked with several real estate agents in past ventures and Tamar’s attention to detail and customer focus are top notch.

    She also helped us find the right lot to have the opportunity to build a house. She was able to identify “lemon” lots quickly and helped us narrow down our search to a great spot.

    After our transactions were done, Tamar kept in touch to see how our proposed construction project was proceeding. She’s offered further advice to help with appraisal preparation and generally gone above and beyond. We’ll definitely work with her again in the future!

  • Showed home in 2014 in Shoreline, WA.

    Tamar was very knowledgeable about the property that was listed as well as finding out the values of the properties around it. Tamar was very professional and punctual when working with us. I especially enjoyed her quick responses to our emails and phone calls. I would highly recommend Tamar!

  • Sold a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $350K in University District, Seattle, WA.

    If you are looking for a professional real estate agent, we highly recommend Tamar Baber and Findwell! From our first meeting to closing, we appreciated Tamar’s enthusiasm, communication style, and expert advice when listing our condominium. Tamar’s guidance on staging, photography, and listing details really showcased our property, and we enjoyed multiple offers over a few weeks time. Most importantly, our unit sold quickly and at the right price.

  • Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $375K in Ballard, Seattle, WA.

    We were first-time home buyers and Tamar made the experience very simple. She provided us excellent information on all of the listings that we visited, had a keen eye for potential issues and accommodated our schedule for all of the viewings that we attended. She helped us negotiate down the price of our condo by several thousand dollars, and the refund from Findwell was a nice perk as well. Her many years of experience helped us greatly, as she was able to provide us with several recommendations for mortgage brokers, home inspectors and closing agents. This made the entire process very simple and gave us great confidence in our choices. We would highly recommend Tamar to others and couldn’t have asked for a better realtor.

  • This last spring we began a fast and furious home search on Mercer Island. Tamar was hard working, responsive and insightful in leading us on that journey. I had confidence in her expertise in recommending a suggested offer. She was not afraid to to look into every detail, including going into a dark and scary basement space that I would have never entered!

  • Tamar is hands down the best broker I’ve worked with; I can’t imagine anyone being so effective through the entire process. She understands her markets. She does the research, not just up front but through the process to ensure the property is priced and staged appropriately. She actively markets. I’ve sold 2 properties with Tamar and would definitely list with her again.

  • Tamar was always available to answer all my questions and address my concerns on the sale of my home. I would definitely recommend her to my friends and family!

  • We thank Tamar for shepherding us through the buying process of our home. On both a professional and personal level, it’s been a pleasure.

  • We always knew that Tamar had our best interests at heart. She was a great listener, and was considerate of our specific needs. Tamar sold our home and assisted us in buying a new one, and both transactions were great.
