So impressed and grateful of making a huge decision as smooth as possible! Ken and Tazana were both amazing partners to work with in buying my first home. From the expertise and knowledge of the pros/cons of neighborhoods (and how that translates into home values) to the familiarity to the recent moves in the market, to the willingness to be completely available in a fast-moving market, Sazama Real Estate is a fantastic team to have on your side. I made a 6-day visit to Boston from California 5 weeks prior to my official move. I had been reviewing the Jamaica Plain market online for the previous few months but the perspectives Ken shared about homes we visited and prices was invaluable to being able to make a confident offer. At the time, the market was moving very quickly (open houses one weekend and offers due the following Tuesday with many offers, etc.) and there is no way I would have been able to find an apartment, make a competitive offer (without overpaying or making poor decisions regarding inspections, etc.), and have a purchase agreement in place before returning to California without Ken’s support. Not only that, as I was new to the area, Ken continued to follow up with how I was settling in and would reach out to tell me about (and invite me to!) community events to get connected. I totally lucked out by finding Sazama Real Estate to represent me in my first home purchase!
