Julia C - Encinitas, CA: 2021-09-10

As newcomers to the San Diego area, we simply couldn’t have done better than entrust Tamara to help us secure a home in the feeding-frenzy that is today’s market. With her consummate professionalism, patience and approachability, she kept us grounded throughout the whole process. And her attention to detail is second to none. Furthermore, Tamara has extensive knowledge of the overall property industry and shared outstanding recommendations for lenders, inspectors and insurers, all of which we ended up using and couldn't be more pleased. Whether you are buying or selling, we highly recommend Tamara.

Nancy M - San Diego, CA: 2021-03-06

I have had a number of realtors in my life, from buying and selling homes a half dozen times, and Tamara is by far the best realtor I have ever had the pleasure of working with. She is so good at her job that makes the buying a home feel absolutely seamless. She's great at explaining the process, from the broader strategy of handing a hot real estate market to the smaller details of the transactions. She is not someone who acts like a salesperson trying to land a commission; quite the opposite. She is good at gently suggesting putting the brakes on impulse purchases of properties where she can see red flags the buyer may miss. She has great attention to detail and can tell which home choices are the smart ones. Tamara also knows a lot about individual neighborhoods and properties in the San Diego area and brings years of experience to the table. She recommends lenders and inspectors who are just as smart, nice, and easy to work with as she is. These were truly unique times to be buying a property, during a hot market in the middle of a pandemic. Not only did she handle all of that seamlessly and drama-free, but she insisted on going full-force in accompanying me at property visits even though she was on crutches recovering from surgery. I cannot recommend her highly enough, without any reservation. Before this, buying and selling real estate was up there among the most stressful experiences of my life, but this time, it was absolutely stunning how stress-free it was, thanks to Tamara.

Jennifer J - Gainesville, FL: 2018-08-26

Tamara guided me through the process of selling my condo even though I was not living in the area. She explained what was happening and helped me to make informed decisions. She went out of her way to make it easy on me. Tamara is clearly an expert and I would hire her again in a heartbeat!

Steven S - San Diego, CA: 2017-11-22

We could not imagine a better San Diego realtor than Tamara Zyhylij. Her insight and professionalism was invaluable throughout our search for a home in a very competitive market. Tamara Z is extremely knowledgeable about San Diego real estate and generous with her expertise. When we had varsity level questions (particularly regarding VA financing, unpermitted spaces, neighborhood-specific market trends, and investment opportunities) she was always quick with a thorough varsity level response. Tamara worked hard for us for more than a year and a half of looking, through countless showings and six offers! She is highly responsive, flexible, and when needed – reassuring, constantly exceeding expectations (and our expectations are high). If you are looking for an agent to help with the purchase, or sale of your home, your search is over. Shout out to her incredible team at Ascent, particularly Matt Young for his help navigating complex financing questions, and Toby and Denise who sometimes showed us properties on short notice, as far as 30 minutes from where we’re happy we finally purchased.

Kristi W - Oceanside, CA: 2017-06-06

Tamara is one of the best agents I have worked with. I bought my house a few years ago and she was very professional and patient as we looked at numerous houses before finding the one I bought. She walked me through the paperwork and made sure I knew everything before I signed. Since then, she has maintained contact and made me feel like I was a valued client. I would definitely use her again if/when the time arises.

Judy N - San Diego, Ca: 2017-06-05

Tamara Z is ultimate agent for buyers and sellers. Spot on with all the details and negotiations.

Debra A - San Diego, CA: 2017-06-03

Tamara was wonderful to work with helping to purchase my San Diego condo.

Allison A - Vista, CA: 2017-06-03

Tamara is awesome! She helped my wife and I find our perfect home, and was absolutely amazing during the process. She is a wonderful negotiator, and was very willing to work with the sellers agent to make sure that all of our needs were met. We will definitely be using her again (if we ever decide to move...).

Halina A - San Diego, CA: 2017-06-02

Tamara Z. has helped us buy two houses and sell one (so far!). She is friendly and knowledgeable and is committed to serving her client. She wants to make sure you get the right house or investment and is not just looking to close your deal and move on to the next customer. In the buying process she helped point out issues that could have proven costly mistakes and in the selling process she helped guide our listing and staging to garner 3 offers on our first weekend on the market. Tamara is the best. I cannot say enough about her customer service and integrity. She is a rare find!

Rachel B - El Cajon, CA: 2017-06-02

Over the past 8 years, we have used Tamara to buy and sell 2 different homes in the San Diego area. That is 4 separate transactions, and she has been superb in every way. She knows the San Diego area very well and has many contacts to help make the transaction as smooth and seamless as possible. We highly recommend Tamara for any real estate needs!

Arthur H - San Diego, CA: 2017-06-02

Tamra made my first home buying experience as amazing as a Breeze in San Diego! Smart, Knowledgeable, and knows how to work with difficult sellers and their agents. I refer her every chance I get!
