Look what people are saying about us:
"I have worked with Lin and Jim Tars on three home purchases and one sale. Their experience and know-how is practically unparalleled in the Northern Virginia real estate market. They are great listeners and, as a result, showed me only the homes that met my criteria. I completely trust their judgment and have come to rely on them for all of my real estate needs. You can't top the Tars Team!"
-- H.P. Glass
"Lin and Jim made the process of buying a home a simple and enjoyable one. We appreciate the time and effort they expended on our behalf, especially the extra effort they put in when we had issues with the title. I have met many agents during the last couple of years, but after speaking with Jim and Lin at an open house, I knew they were the agents for us. We will recommend them to our friends and neighbors."
-- M. Hutcherson
"We feel fortunate, indeed, that we found Jim and Lin when we decided to leave Baltimore for Northern Virginia and are especially grateful that they worked so hard to help us find a home we've grown to love beyond words. Should we ever decide to move (not likely!), they will be our Realtors-of-choice- no question!"
-- K. Monahan
"Thank you Jim-- I signed the closing settlement papers yesterday. I know that you did not have a 'financial dog in this fight' but I really want you to know that I truly appreciate the consults, option review and analysis, the comps (which really assisted the home-run appraisal -- the true fulcrum to the process) and your referral to Ken Byrne. Those guys are exceptional -- 28 days from on-line app to signed closing on a new VA load for the refi.
Trying to quantify the benefits to me and my family can be captured in $400 per month savings, interest rate reduction of almost 3%, moving from an interest only for another 3+ years ARM to a Fixed -- the immediate and long term financial impact is huge, the emotional benefits are huge, preservation of liquid assets is a significant game changer.
You've further earned my loyalty, respect and referral -- heck, you guys had that after stepping in and scooping me and my family up and into the Piedmont rental following the house fire.
Any mention of real estate and mortgages and I sing out Tars Realty, Jim and Lin and Ken Byrne at First Savings. Many Thanks."
