This recommendation is written to recognize and to express our gratitude for the guidance, support and all of the effort that Helen Tam put into the marketing and sale of our home.

Helen spent many hours with us explaining the process of selling a house. That explanation included the requirements for both the seller and the buyer, as well as those of the buyer's and seller's agents. Some of the meetings were at Helen's request, others at our request. All were professional and profitable for a couple of people who had never previously been involved in a real estate sale.

Helen's attention to detail was meticulous. She took the time to verify all of the repairs and upgrades. Helen suggested things we should do and things we should not do. Suggestions were always accompanied by the reason.

If we were to buy or sell another house, we would look long and hard to find an agent to match the breadth of knowledge, the hours of work and planning, the initiative and interactions that Helen put into the sale of the house.

The results support our comments. Multiple offers were received after the first and only weekend of showings.

If anyone if looking for a realtor, I would highly recommend Helen Tam. She had 3 offers on my Dad's townhouse in Raleigh in less than 1 day. She personally staged it and did things to it that other realtors just simply don't do. Helen was there during the entire process. They're aren't words to express how pleased that my Dad and I were with Helen.

My wife and I signed on with Helen Tam when she agreed to be our Buyers Agent for our home search in the Raleigh area. We were very lucky to find Helen through a recommendation from our daughter. We were very comfortable working with Helen soon after we met. We were moving from out of state and Helen's knowledge of the area made us confident in her skill to find the best fit home for us. She was meticulous in her questions and review of what our wants and needs were/are for our new home. Once she knew what we wanted she produced produced numerous options to choose from. We selected the home that we wanted and Helen's advice helped us to "hammer" out an agreement with the seller that was highly beneficial to my wife and me. Helen "the Hammer" was relentless in getting us a great deal and we are very happy. We will be recommending her to anyone who asks us about Real Estate.

Helen Tam went above and beyond what I have ever seen in excellent customer service. We moved from Nashua NH to Raleigh in October. Helen was 100% committed to finding us a great house. She was very informative. Was there for us 24/7.
I would recommend Helen to everyone who wants a great agent looking out for them.
Helen is the best.

Helen helped my wife and I find our perfect home during a time in Raleigh when the housing market began to rise.

Helen took the time to listen to what we were looking for in a home. She helped us determine the area of Raleigh we wanted to be in and began helping us search with the criteria we looked for. When looking at houses, Helen had _all_ the info. She typically would know the builder of the home including the quality of the builders. Because of her great amount of experience she explained what to look for as potential down falls of houses that any ordinary person would glaze over; distance to busy roads, roads that aren't too busy now, but will potentially get busier as Raleigh grows, potential issues with building materials, etc., etc.

We found the exact house we were looking for due to Helen's immense knowledge, her dedication to her craft, and her caring personality. She was easy to work with and hopefully we get to work with her again some day.
