    Tarek, from Windemere Real Estate, provided such excellent care for me while I went through the process of buying my first home. He displayed and shared a vast amount of knowledge to me as I navigated this new path. He not only made me laugh but I also knew I was in the best hands. Thank you Tarek and your entire team! Nicole, a member of Windemere Real Estate, was also extremely helpful through the whole process of purchasing a home. As she walked me through the many steps and questions I had (which were many), she responded with such kindness, patience and support. She remained so accommodating to my busy schedule as a teacher while we looked at numerous homes. Nicole, with her knowledge and outstanding people skills, was a joy to be with on this sometimes stressful journey! Windemere Real Estate really takes care of their clients!

    I really appreciated Tarek’s hands-on approach from the start. He was instrumental in preparing our home for showing. From getting things cleaned up to advice on emphasizing the best features of our home. His tenure in the business showed in being steadfast in pricing and negotiations and the ability to establish win-win-win relationships. Finally, Tarek’s experience and professional yet relaxed style also facilitated a smooth, trouble-free & swift process to close.

    As a first time home buyer Tarek was a dream agent. Always up front and honest and never tried pushing anything we weren’t comfortable with. He works hard to get you the right house at the right price. He is no pushover when it comes to selling agents being difficult and will always back you. I would work with him again in a heartbeat and know that you are in good hands with Tarek.

    My family and I have known Tarek for a few years now as our Real Estate Agent. He has represented us on a few different deals. With each purchase and sale he has provided us with a full service experience from start to finish, then beyond. He is professional, very communicative, and we know that he brings a lot of knowledge about real estate to each transaction. With every interaction, it's reflective that Tarek has the best interest of our family at heart. We have enjoyed working with him and know we will continue to do so on any future deals!

    I was referred to Tarek from a trusted colleague of mine as this was our first home purchasing experience. I specifically asked for an agent who is knowledgeable of market conditions in our area and Tarek proved just that. Wealth of knowledge and relatable experiences helped move our situation along smoothly and everything went as well as it could during this unique environment we live in today (covid). Thank you for all of your help Tarek!

    We were so fortunate to have found Tarek when we were planning on purchasing our home. As our Realtor, he helped us find both lots and houses that fit our requirements. He was patient with us and worked with us at every step of the way. Thanks to his professionalism and abilities we were able to close on our home in 2 weeks with the least amount of friction. The best part about working with Tarek was that he was always more focused on answering our questions, giving us advice, and finding properties that met our needs than he was on closing a deal. We never felt any pressure to make a quick decision. We will be recommending Tarek to our friends in the future.

    Tarek is great to work with he was professional, nice and knowledgable especially when we checked out a place that he knew had foundation problems he kept me out of a headache. He showed me a house that I was super into some got the ball rolling and When the lender I brought in screwed things up in a major way, Tarek gave me advice and info on how to still get into the house. He was a great negotiator and was able to get a new sewer line, the furnace serviced and a pest control spray under the house. on the seller's behalf even after they paid closing cost. He also got my lender (that I brought in) to pay for the appraisal. Both parties seller And I were happy with the deal. I am definitely using him in the future.

    Have been working with Tarek for several years, and made a couple of offers before finding this excellent property. Tarek helped to make a deal and secure the listing! He's been in touch with the selling team and discovered important details that you need in time to close escrow. He's knowledgeable, dependable, and someone who you'll stay in touch with.

    The correct words are difficult to describe our experience. We relocated from Southern California. It was challenging as there was a sensitivity with timing based on the closing of our Palm Springs home. I was in WA and my husband was in PS. Just that in its self was stressful. Tarek put me at ease from the first time we met. He listened to what type of home we were hoping to find and the price range. Tarek was honest and forthcoming with any questions or concerns either me or my husband had. This was a huge move and a tremendous life change. Tarek kept every step of the process moving forward and timely. He continually kept us apprised with the home purchase process and we always knew he had our best interests at heart. We felt blessed that we found Tarek and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a realtor.

    Tarek is extremely knowledgeable in the local real estate market. He is of the higherst caliber in all areas than any others that I have dealt with in the past. He is always calm and reassuring to me that everything is on track, even though I'm getting stressed. He is the finest communicator I have ever worked with. Always keeping me in the loop with everything. He shows care, understanding (and patience) with any and all questions I ask. He truly has the buyer or seller feel that they are the most important person in the world. His moral character is second to none. The theology of Tarek is there is only one way to get the job done and that is the right way. His expertise in navigating the the real estate process is superior. He is an honest and great negotiator. Tarek has truly reestablished my faith in regards to there are honest and true real estate agents out there to help. He always has his clients best intrest at heart. I will use Tarek again without a second thought and suggest that whomever may read this, he be the first agent to contact for all your real estate needs. Thank you, Tarek ! Sincerely, Mike Long

    It is my opinion that Tarek is a true professional in his field. His willingness to go the extra mile is commendable. That is why I keep coming back to him for both buying and selling real estate. He is my agent and will continue but in addition to that, he is a very good friend to have.

  • Testimonial

    I met Tarek by chance after calling to look at a piece of property and it turned out to be a very fortunate meeting indeed. After touring the place I decided to put in an offer, Tarek suggested a number based off of the history of the property and the seller and away we went. After the offer was accepted, Tarek was instrumental in providing sources for local and knowledgeable inspectors and continued to exceed my expectations by being the primary point of contact for several during my unavailability. Tarek was always available to me via text or phone call and was always there to give advice or help negotiate, I ended up buying the property for less than my initial bid due by no small measure to the skill and resourcefulness of this man. Highly recommend using his services if you’re looking to buy land or are fairly new in the real estate game, he will be a tremendous help I guarantee it.

    We are thrilled we decided to hire Tarek to help us with the sale of one of our investment properties in Monroe. Being unfamiliar with rural properties, acreage, septic systems, wells, etc. meant I really needed to lean on Tarek for his expertise in navigating this untraditional sale. He was amazing and went above and beyond.

    I would highly recommend Tarek! Tarek and his team were very responsive, knowledgeable, and professional from the very beginning to the end after the transaction. He did his research and was able to provide us valuable and timely housing market information.

    Tarek did a great job in assisting me prepare, advertise, negotiate, and close the sale of my parents house in Seattle. My father passed away recently, and my mother decided that continuing to live independently was not an option. I - as the only son and living in Dallas - was faced with the prospect of selling a house without much knowledge of the area or the necessary steps to get the sale closed. Tarek was very knowledgeable of the area and recent sales. He helped establish a competitive price that garnered multiple offers. He assisted in contacting and arranging for removal of excess personal items in the house, minor repairs, and cleaning up the landscape. He was knowledgeable of the unique processes and forms necessary for an estate selling a house. Tarek kept me informed of all steps as we moved thru the process - with multiple emails, texts and pictures. In the end, we sold the house for more than the asking price and closed without a hitch. I would recommend him to anyone in the Seattle area.

    Highly Recommend! Tarek from the beginning to the end (and even after the sell) was responsive, knowledgeable, and professional. Purchasing a condo was a very sensitive matter for me and Tarek took time to understand my needs and desires for a new home and did not waste my time with worthless listings. We landed my new home with less than 5 showings because of Tarek’s keen awareness of the neighborhoods in the PNW. I ran into some unexpected glitches with lenders and as a result of Tarek’s background in the industry, he was able to connect me to the right parties that proved to be invaluable. Also, he researched and provided information on properties, so that I could make informed decisions….he thought of everything! This gave me negotiation control. Tarek even stepped in to address issues the seller’s agent should have taken care of (e.g. communicating with HOA on items found during the inspection). Throughout the process, he had my best interests at heart- including suggestions on reputable contractors and movers as I prepared to move in. Tarek’s energetic and HONEST approach is very rare these days. If I ever decide to sell or buy again, I will be giving Tarek a call. I highly recommend him.

    From even prior to us listing our house, Tarek was on the ball. He had a rolodex of contacts at his disposal to help with construction, cleaning, moving, etc. It's incredibly helpful when you have so much already on your plate. He held many open houses, making sure to get the maximum number of visitors through the property. He was always there looking out for our best interest. The close process was a bit nerve-wracking but he was able to calm any concerns we had quite well!!

    We had an older house to sell, and had sat on market with first realtor, who had insisted we stage it. After 4 months of nothing, we went with Tarek. No nonsense, no staging, just put on market. He sold it!!! All negotiations, all fixes, he did it all. He made it go smoothly. When our daughter is ready to sell and buy, he will be the one. Thank you Tarek.

    Tarek reached out to me almost immediately after I expressed interest in a property in Zillow. He drove me around for 2 days to visit houses until we found one that I was comfortable buying. During negotiation, he helped me make an offer to get a price I was happy with and keeping the seller happy too. After mutual acceptance, he helped me get a thorough inspection on the home even though I was out-of-state. He also lined up contractors to help me plan repair work I want to do as part of the move-in process. Tarek also helped me negotiate with the bank to get a competitive interest rate below the national average.

    Tarek helped us bought our first home in WA. He’s not just any agent, he is more like a friend to us. We were surprised with his knowledge and years of experiences in this industry. We almost gave up looking to buy a home due to the current competitive market, but if it wasn’t for him continued to gave us hope and made us believe that we will find one.

    Tarek was amazing! We bought and sold a property at the same time and with Tarek's help it all went very smooth. He helped us a lot around the property and kept us calm and positive the entire way. No doubt that I would refer him to anyone buying or selling!

  • Testimonial

    Tarek is an amazing agent! He plans strategically to get his clients the most for their money and property. The only hiccup wasn't his fault but the reason for only four stars. It is very common for the agents to work together to get their clients in to their homes early. The agent of the property we purchased refused to close a day early for no reason but Tarek had promised to give the keys to the buyer of the property we sold early. This caused our move to be rushed. Tarek is responsive, knowledgeable, hard working and extremely professional. Tarek goes above and beyond, he even pressure washed the front of our home. You will not find a better agent! Look no further.

    As a first time homebuyer I was nervous and worried about being taken advantage of financially. Tarek was fantastic. His easy going and knowledgeable demeanor gave me confidence in him. He encouraged me to take my time and do my research. Through the home viewing process he helped me clearly define what I needed in my new home, he encouraged me not to overbuy and he helped feel confident in my decisions. Tarek was very patient with me and on multiple occasions he went out of his way to accommodate my hectic work schedule. Tarek was always available and felt more like a mentor to me than a salesman; he was present through every step of the process and followed up diligently after the purchase was complete. I will do business with Tarek again and I will recommend him to friends and family. Cheers.

    Tarek is a very nice man he gave a very good information & guidence when we were getting ready to put our house on the market. He had good contacts for us to help get things done (we had a lot). We sold the place it did take a little longer than we thought but all it takes it the right person. Tarek went above and beyond his responsibilites he showed the house knowing the person had a different realitor. That person bought the house it all worked out great. If you're looking for a great realitor hire Tarek you will have a great experience too.

    Tarek was a pleasure to work with. He has great communication through the whole process, and probably should get a masters degree in home buyers psychology! His marketing materials were simply stunning and he had great ideas for getting the home ready even with out staging. He was thorough in dealing with the buyers reps and really kept our best interest at heart. Our home was sold quickly in this market and Tarek's knowledge of the area and equestrian properties helped us get a great return.

    Tarek started the relationship by calling me immediately at 8 pm when I was on Zillow! He asked me what kind of house I was looking to buy and sent me info on many potential houses to buy until we found the perfect house for us.

    Working with Tarek was a great experience! After we initially contacted him about a specific property, he was able to get us out to see it that very same evening; we were amazed at how fast he was able to get things moving. He was prompt at communicating, which really helped calm our nerves when we were wondering about the status of things throughout. And he is very friendly and easy to talk with to learn the ins and outs of the whole home-buying process. Overall, I would highly recommend working with Tarek.
