Tanya and her team were, without exception, incredible. Everyone we worked with during the process of selling our old home and purchasing our new one was straightforward, reliable, and an utter delight to deal with. At no point did we feel like we were dealing with someone angling to make a sale, and that refreshing honesty made us feel incredibly at ease. People were available to answer questions seemingly at any hour of the day, and were always happy to walk me through even the silliest, most inane complications. Any requests we had were always taken seriously, even when some of them I’m sure were unusual or unintentionally outlandish. Our home buying process was a bit of a soap opera, through no fault of Tanya or her team, and throughout the saga we knew that we had incredible advocates on our side, working to ensure that our family found the right house to make our forever home. That knowledge was an incredible comfort through what would have otherwise been a little bit of a nightmare. The sale of our old home, on the other hand, was simpler than I could have dreamed - we were under contract, with the unusually flexible terms that we’d hoped for, after only two days on the market. The speed and ease of that was a direct result of the efforts of Tanya and her team.I cannot recommend Tanya highly enough. Despite their heavy workload and numerous clients, we always felt as though we were important to them. More than that, I felt as though they were all along for the ride with us, experiencing the same happiness and frustrations right along with the rest of my family, and that’s a truly rare quality. I could not have hoped for a better experience, and I will be forever grateful to them for that.

Tanya and her team were wonderful! They made the process of buying a home a great and stress-free experience. They were very prompt in responding and make sure everything was completed in a timely manner. The best team of experts!
Tanya was one of the most unprofessional real estate agents I've ever worked with (and I've bought/sold a dozen homes in my life). She either does not know anything about her job/profession (i.e. contracts, inspections, closing, & funding), or she's just an old fashioned liar; either way, I wouldn't recommend her to my worst enemy. On multiple occasions during our home sale she made statements about the contract that were not true (saying signed & accepted offers weren't in fact enforceable), but said it in a way where inexperienced people might have just accepted what she said as fact; when I called her bluff she then tried saying we'll that's something that the broker would need to verify. She then almost let a deal fall through because "it wasn't her job" to communicate details to all parties involved; it sounded to me like she just wanted to show a house once and get paid $2,000 without any additional effort.
We were so fortunate to have found Jake Forbes when we moved to Lawrence. As our Realtor, he helped us find the right house in the right neighborhood for the right price. He was patient as we traveled from Missouri to look at homes over several months and cautioned us about making unreasonable offers when we fell too quickly for overpriced homes.
I recently had the pleasure of working with Jake Forbes when looking for my home. From day 1, Jake was extremely responsive and had great suggestions for homes to view based on what I was looking for. All throughout the negotiations and closing he was there quickly handling any issues that may have risen. If the time ever comes when I will be looking for a new home, there isn’t any question on who my Realtor will be!
When we first met Jake Forbes, he explained that his job is more service than sales. He proved that time and again with his thorough knowledge of home construction and the local market. Every time we viewed a new property he would perform a methodical inspection, looking for signs of problems and commenting on the quality of construction, finish, appliances, etc. Jake also led us through multiple rounds of negotiation to get to a price we were comfortable with. In the end we found the property that was perfect for us and are loving it so far.
We can’t speak highly enough of our experience with Jake Forbes. We were first-time homebuyers with very little knowledge about how to find the right place. We met with a couple of realtors before Jake, but we knew instantly that he was the one for us. He is honest and hands-on (he even crawled into creepy attics to check insulation for us!), and he really helped to take the pressure off of us.
I found Tanya from a link on Zillow while investigating properties in Lawrence, and am so glad I did. Tanya and her team were diligent, timely and highly professional in their dealings with us, yet still very personable and easy to work with. I have never had a better experience with a realty team!
Working with Tanya and her team was the best experience we could have wished for on our first-time, home-buying experience! They were fast, knowledgeable, and most of all, kind and understanding. We were able to see properties immediately and had our questions and concerns addressed immediately. They were also helpful in making our transition to home ownership easier when concerning things were found after the close! They have continued to answer our questions and provided support during tax season also!We just happened upon Tanya's name and picture in an ad when looking at homes and we were thrilled that we clicked and called! This team will work for you and make the process a breeze! Best team in our area!
