Maureen, a recent seller
"I first met Tania DeGroot when she helped me buy my house many years ago. She was so supportive and encouraging to me, a first-time buyer, that she was the first person I thought of when I was ready to sell. Tania walked me through all the steps of getting my house ready and onto the market. Her directions in what to do to present my house at its best were invaluable. Each step of the way she kept me on track and over the bumps. I can’t imagine anyone with as much care and determination as Tania, and always with a smile and positive outlook. Thank you for all you did, Tania. I count myself lucky to have met you."

"I couldn’t have picked a better realtor to work with! Tania was so patient and determined to help me find my first home. We looked at so many homes and after losing many bids, she was always encouraging that we will find the right home at the right time. Tania listened to my wants and needs for a home and kept my future goals in mind. She also gave great advice and a different perspective. I couldn’t be more happy with my new home and I couldn’t have done it without Tania!"
Bob, a preferred lender
"I have had the pleasure of working with Tania on a recent escrow. Her clients were first-time home buyers. The clients were trying to buy a home in an extremely competitive marketplace. It took over a dozen offers to get the clients into an escrow in spite of the fact that they were writing competitive offers (all at or above the asking price). In spite of the difficult market, Tania was able to provide her clients with clear, concise, unbiased guidance on each of their offers. Throughout the entire process Tania always put her clients and their needs first. Did I mention that the home appraised for significantly more than the purchase price? This was a huge win for the clients. Tania is a true Real Estate Professional. I highly recommend her! "

Annette, a seller and buyer
Tania DeGroot has been in the past my real estate agent for Orinda and Richmond CA both buyer and seller. She is very honest, thorough, knowledgeable and gets the job done in a timely fashion. I would recommend her highly in any real estate transaction as well as everyday events.
Marcia, a seller
"I was completely happy and satisfied with the service provided by Tania. She is longtime friend whom I previously co-lead a Girl Scout troop with. Personally, I had known her to be trustworthy, reliable and enjoyable to work with. Professionally, I found her work of an equal caliber and was impressed with her work ethic and knowledge of the real estate field. I would strongly recommend her to anyone trying to sell or buy a house.
Larissa and Jon, Buyers
We had a wonderful experience working with Tania to buy our home! She was clearly very knowledgeable about the market and putting in a competitive offer. She gave us all the information we needed but let us make all the decisions which I really appreciated. She was calm and never pushed us to go outside our initial price range. I would highly recommend her.

Tania was referred by a mutual friend to sell our home, and we’re so glad she was! She worked with us months in advance to recommend improvements that would add value and desirability to the property, and everything came our great, resulting in multiple offers over our target price. She was amazing through the entire process, even in the midst of a slew of new adjustments given the pandemic, and gently guided us to get everything done as efficiently as possible. Tania truly is a master of her craft and we recommend her highly!
Tania helped us find the perfect place and kept us informed of our part in the buying process as we moved towards closing. She was always available for all of our many questions and responded promptly and professionally.
Tania is super friendly and always cheerful, even when you get worn out and discouraged from looking at so many houses. It is definitely good to have her in your corner in this process of buying a house in the Bay Area. She is patient and gives you advice when asked. She is never pushy on anything and always there for you when you have questions. She caters to your schedule and is punctual when you want to look at homes. I was usually free during the weekdays and she was willing to make the drive through Bay Area traffic to show me homes and I definitely appreciated that. She is perfect when getting documents to you on time and made the whole paperwork signing smooth. She will be there for you whenever you ask even though she might not need to be there for the process.
All in all, Tania made me feel like she was a friend rather than just a client. I still refer her to my friends all the time. I believe that word of mouth is powerful so you should not go with anyone else but Tania. I am definitely sending everyone her way.
Jess and Steve, Buyers and Sellers
We loved working with Tania. She helped us persevere through the purchase of our first home, which we loved and appreciated! The selling of our home was a seamless process thanks to her help. She is incredibly easy to work with. We highly recommend her.
