Hi! My name is Tamara and I am a licensed Virginia REALTOR®
backed by a company that can support your real estate needs, not only in
Virginia, but all over the country. I have been married to the love of my life
since 1997, a United States Navy Veteran and a career Firefighter/Paramedic. We
have two wonderful adult children who fill our lives with joy and challenge us
to be better people every day. I have a Bachelor's degree in Psychology and a
Master's degree in Counseling. It is my passion to help people. Helping the
community in their pursuit of buying and selling homes is just one way that I
can express that. I truly care about each of my clients and want to help you in
making your dreams and goals a reality! I have the skills, tools, and drive to
make sure that you get what you need out of each transaction. I am a certified
real estate instructor through Moseley School of Real Estate, helping to create
better agents from my knowledge and experience. I am a full time career agent
dedicated to getting the job done well. When you call or text, it is my goal to
always be quick to respond to your concerns. I believe that a home is more than
walls and windows. It is made up of memories. It is a sound investment that
will have a return for years to come. A home is a place for firsts, lasts and
everything in between. It should be your retreat at the end of a long day. It
should be the one place where you can truly be yourself. No home is perfect but
there is one home that is absolutely perfect for you! Let’s work together to
find your perfect home!

Originally from the mountains of Virginia I settled in the Tidewater region after travelling extensively as a military wife. My residence in this region began in December of 1989. My employment background is customer service. Namely, restaurant management. Anyone in the industry knows that this is similar to daycare and alligator wrestling rolled into one. My philosophy in life is what you can't laugh about, may kill you. I consider myself patient and diligent, priding myself in accomplishing goals. The main objective, when I entered Real Estate, was to simply earn a living providing a service. I found that within the property management department here at ERA Real Estate Professionals. Now, I find great joy in finding the perfect home or buyer for my clients. Nothing is more satisfying than creating calm in the seemingly, overwhelming home market. Here at ERA Real Estate Professionals, there is always a helpful agent or staff with answers or sources to any, out of the ordinary, situation that may arise.
My personal life is busy and happy. Our home is filled with 6 members ranging in the ages of 18-83. My husband immigrated to the country in 1974 and enlisted into the military soon after. Upon gaining his college diploma, he re-entered the Navy and retired as a Commander 9 years ago. The oldest member of our abode is the most loved, Lola. The precious grandmother to our children and my beloved mother-in-law. I am lucky to say I have the best Mother-in-Law there is. My husband and I have our last 3 children at home. The two eldest children have already entered their career choice but our nest is nurturing the last 3. 2 are post-graduate students. One will be entering the field of Occupational Therapy soon and the other will join forces in the accounting field. WOOHOO, one more to go! Our youngest graduates from High School this June and will enter college in the fall.
I look forward to each adventure that life will offer and plan never to retire. Hopefully, I will enter the Smucker's Jar hall as fame and be known as the oldest, living Realtor. No matter where my career may lead me the joy of participating in the first time home buy will never dissipate. I strive to be patient and kind to whomever God sends my way and will always be resourceful continuing to soak in the knowledge of my colleagues and friends and field of work.
Be real and Rock on!

Debbie is a calm, grace-under-pressure real estate professional who believes in facing challenges head on. Debbie has seen the market's highs and lows and learned there is a way through all of it since being licensed in 2008 and becoming a managing broker in 2014.
The real estate market crashed just before Debbie became licensed. Even in a down market, she earned Rookie of the Year her first year. Debbie received a Communications degree with a minor in marketing from ODU and after spending 10 years in advertising sales for the Virginian Pilot, and taking a break to raise children, Debbie knew she found a career that would use her education and experience in sales and marketing as well as her desire to serve and help people. As an agent she used that motivation to help her clients achieve their real estate goals.
Some of Debbie's problem-solving resilience was developed in her growing years as a military child. Debbie was born in Germany and moved 12 times by the time she reached her senior year of high school. She attended 3 different high schools. But with a supportive family and a mom who taught her that home is where you make it, Debbie came out with an inner strength that has stood the tests of life. Throughout those years the Army made Virginia Debbie's home three times. It is no wonder that Debbie came to settle here. Despite the wanderlust that hits every now and then after years of moving, she has settled in Virginia.
Debbie shares 5 children with her husband Ralph. They have a sweet black hound dog Dixie and a crazy black cat Cairo, both rescues who play and fight like siblings. When Debbie isn't helping an agent through a problem, she loves to volunteer in her community. She's very involved in her church. She loves to take meals to people in need. Debbie pours herself into other people in every way she finds a need. To unwind, Debbie loves to spend time with family, read and sew. There's something about piecing together a quilt in the quiet of her home that helps her recharge and clear her mind. Baby quilts have been her latest project. The smaller more manageable project is just what she needs in her otherwise busy life.
As a US Navy Veteran with a "can get it done" reputation, being a local area expert has attributed to many of my clients owning great homes. I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you with over 20 years of exceptional customer service expierence & fourteen plus years of negotiating expierence. Here are some of the things I can do for you:*Find Your Next Home* You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I am BPO certified! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home*Sell a Home*When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.*Consult on Home Selling Tactics*Often times buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.

numerous awards including Rookie of the Year, Top Agent, Million Dollar Club

organization for the work I’ve done in the community.

mobilization volunteer, an elections official, military mentor, and a host of
other opportunities. In my free time, I
enjoy golfing, traveling and spending quiet time reading.
