I've had the pleasure of working with The Tamkins for over 10 years. They have been responsive, honest, and hard-working. I had a delicate situation in selling a home, and they created a report with all parties, and in the end, everyone benefited from the sale of the house. Truly honorable, fun to work with, and dependable people.
