I'm Tamara Dorris

Hi There!

Happy you stopped by. If you’re looking for a typical real estate agent, you’re at the wrong place. I’m an advocate, educator, and property & profit protector of and for my clients. And yeah, it’s all about real estate. But I don’t stop there. If we decide to work together, I will be your super hero.  And I don’t stop once the transaction is over. I want to be your trusted friend for years to come. So see, it’s not that easy to get rid of me once we’ve connected and exchanged value, but I promise it will always be to your benefit and delight.

Have a great day, and take a look at my blog if you want to know more about me.

It’s Never About The House

Other Agent: What do you mean it’s not about the house? We’re in real estate; it’s always about the house. Me: No, it’s always about the people who own or want the house. The truth of the matter is that houses don’t have feelings. People do. And people...

The Art of Organization

The Writing on the Wall

Tenants can be tricky in real estate, especially if they decide to stop paying rent. But alas, we are in the land of California where tenants tend to have more rights than I do empty wine bottle. Don’t get me wrong or send me hate mail if you are tenant whose landlord did you wrong…I know those kinds are out there too, but that’s not the point, and since I’m telling the story,

How to Know When it’s Time to Sell Your Sac Home

Every House Has Story

  No two houses are exactly alike and each one tells a different story. Houses are an extension of us, which adds to their uniqueness. For no homeowner I’ve ever known has their house just been a pile of sticks and stucco. The memories of when you...

Born in Folsom, raised in OrangevaleFair Oaks, and the Arden Area, lived in Carmichael for more than 30 years.
