Best quote from her story: “I was born and raised here, I know every square inch of my town and I am an advocate for change. I want my name to be synonymous with Renton, not necessarily the best real estate agent but the best go-to person. I want them to say, “Talk to Tanya, she will know someone who can help you with that.” 

Tanya’s business philosophy: “For me, keeping things real and following my heart keeps me in the driver’s seat.”


“Tanya is an amazing real estate agent, but, more importantly, an amazing person. She is a genuinely kind and caring human being, and a total gem. My husband and I stumbled across her by chance on Zillow, and we are so, so grateful we did! She went out of her way to help us find homes and make sure we understood everything. Home-buying is never an easy experience, especially in a seller’s market, but Tanya made it all worth it and helped get us through some really disappointing and stressful times. Count yourself lucky if you get to work with her!!!!” ~Carolyn B.

“Tanya is by far the best real estate agent that we have worked with! After working with a different agent for four months with no success, we decided to reach out to Tanya. We asked her to help us find a house. We gave her only a week. She helped us find the perfect house in the right neighborhood in 4 days! Tanya is compassionate and knowledgeable about the housing market. Not only does Tanya take her job very seriously, but she has her clients’ best interests at heart. We already consider her a friend and highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to buy and/or sell a house.” ~Bernice M.

“We met Tanya early in our house search process and she stuck with us even as we changed our search area. She always went the extra mile to help us try to make the most competitive offer possible, including gathering extra information or touring the house multiple times with us. With her help, our offer was accepted on a five-bedroom/three-bath dream house for our family, even with multiple other competitive offers. The closing process was very smooth, and we couldn’t be happier with the care she showed throughout the process, even checking in after we closed. Highly recommend.” ~Lisa P.
