Everyone was so pleasant to interact with, and that made the entire process enjoyable. It has been so refreshing to work with individuals that are knowledgeable, personable & accountable."
Ashley & Godfrey Lee
"Imagine, selling your home, purchasing a new home, moving your possessions and come closing day — your buyer (and your listing agent) disappear on you. This is what happened to us and this is when we called the Tar Team. Like a military general, Stephen took control of our situation. Within four days our home was resold. During our crisis, Stephen and his team looked after us with compassion and a deep sense of humanity: they pulled us through. Stephen Tar has an unmatched debt of experience and, more importantly, he has genuine concern for his clients. We are forever grateful. This is the only agency you should use, period. It should be said that his team, in particular Deb, was magnificent."

Mark & Jan Stallybrass
"Buying and selling a home is probably the most stressful financial experience you will be exposed to. Kristina Tar and the Tar Team actually made this a pleasant experience for us. They made us feel that we were their only customers by working on everything quickly and professionally. Their valuation of the house so that it would sell for the best price and the staging of the house to make it look incredible did get us more than we expected. They all pitched in to make it work and the house was sold over asking in less than a day. We couldn't have asked for anything more from them. We would highly recommend Kristina Tar and her Team."

"We found ourselves trying to sell our house in the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic which we thought would be extremely challenging. However, the Tar Team steered us through the process flawlessly. They had excellent protocols in place for house showings to ensure the safety of all. Steve, Kristina and Deb were responsive and encouraging the whole time and responded to our questions and calls almost immediately. Steve has an excellent feel for the market and gave excellent advice on pricing. And, of course, we are delighted with our sale."

"We were in the position of having to sell our house quickly and maximize the selling price. We knew of the reputation and experience of the Stephen Tar Team as they had previously listed the houses of two of our immediate neighbours. They spoke highly of the experience, as did our family familiar with the local real estate market. We were not disappointed. Stephen and the team expertly took us through the entire process, keeping our goals uppermost in all they did, all the while navigating the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. They were entirely approachable, offered honest opinions and advice throughout, and they expertly managed our expectations. We would recommend the Tar Team without hesitation."
Deb & Dan Pitt
"From the time we first met with Kristina, we had a good feeling that we would be looked after. She was very professional and answered all our questions in an accurate and timely fashion. We thank you for that Kristina.
I have to say Deb Hunter is a gem. She listened to me when I was feeling overwhelmed and scared. And always reassured me that all I needed was one buyer and that it would all be fine. She always returned all my calls and emails and would apologize if she couldn’t get back to me right away. She was very professional, knowledgeable and prompt. For this we were very grateful and happy with the service."

Natalie is a confident, professional and knowledgeable real estate agent and has a very bright future ahead of her."
Tiffani and Derek Howell
"My family and I have been downsizing with the Stephen Tar Team through two sales and two purchases in the past 6 years and couldn’t be happier with both experiences. Natalie is so responsive and has been an invaluable source of information and suggestions. She is backed up by an amazing team of professionals who all work to make the process go as smoothly as possible. It is a comfort to have such support in what is always a trying time."
Ellen Kaine

The information requested and the support of the administration during the emotional times was rock solid. Nothing was too much trouble.

The support we received, the co-ordination of the showings, the marketing of our property and the negotiations during the sale were all first rate.

Pat & Bob
"I approached the Stephen Tar Team in crisis after another charismatic and infinitely less qualified agent had left an unparalleled mess in her wake, the affects of which left us energetically and financially vulnerable. From the very first call with Stephen (& team) I felt a profound difference – and relief. Stephen Tar isn't playing with "scared money or reputation" and had the luxury of expertly navigating away from any buyer or deal that doesn't honour his client's best interests. Any agent can pick low lying fruit, but this team has seen and weathered it all. I'd cite confidence, trustworthiness and sense of urgency, as difinitive strengths, but nothing's more appreciated then this distinction: SOLD."
Tina Hardt
"It was a pleasure having the Tar Team on our team to assist us in the sale of our Dad's apartment. We were more than pleased with the final outcome of the sale."

We also dealt with Debby and found her to be very informative, professional and kept us up to date with everything. Her bubbly personality made this process easier and because of her everything went smooth. She was very understanding and empathetic to how we felt. This was a very difficult decision for the two of us and with the help of your team made us feel a lot better. Thanx."
Irene & Fausto

Kristina made us feel comfortable by her calm and confident manner.
Thanks to the whole Team; we are very pleased with the way you handled the sale of our home, it was fast, efficient, and very professional. We will not hesitate to recommend The Stephen Tar Team to our friends."

Brian Barranger
"My husband an I met Natalie at an open house she was hosting early 2016. We were not actively in the market looking-that was literally our first open house. At the time, we didn't realize just how lucky we were to have met Natalie. She wasn't pushy at all, yet was able to uncover what we really wanted in our future home. From that day on, Natalie would keep in touch, send us listings that matched our criteria and was always available to arrange a showing. Natalie and the entire TAR team are class acts and we would never enter a real estate transaction without their guidance."
Anabel & Gianni
"We found the Stephen Tar Team to be professional, very knoweledgeable and incredibly helpful. Whenever we needed advice on planning the sale, Stephen made himself available.

The office administrator Debby was incredibly patient, knowledgeable, reactive and understanding. Kristina Tar was amazing. She was totally in tune to the market and pricing structures. She knew the area in great detail, and was able to guide us through the contracts and negotiations with outstanding abilities. Through her negotiations we sold our home for $202,000.00 over the listed price. What an incredible team! Thank you."
Chris & Mark Johnston

Harry & Linda
"Kristina was extremely knowledgable, responsive and helpful in dealing with my estate issues, and ultimately extremely successful in the selling of the property. The recommendations to prepare the house for sale were exactly right and practical. Even with complications due to the nature of the estate, nothing felt stressful, even though it was. We sold in record time, with multiple offers and well above asking. The entire team was a pleasure to deal with, very effective and professional."
Karin H.

I was reluctant to go to their office for a presentation but I was glad I did. Once they walked us through the sale process that takes place in their office vs our home, I was convinced that this was the team for us.
I also appreciate how they communicated in a very timely manner and kept us apprised on a daily basis.
The wealth of experience of the team really came into play on the day the offers came in. They were able attract multiple offers and manage the process so that we ended getting a significant amount over asking!"

"If you are looking for the PERFECT real estate team, look no further. Stephen and his group of professionals are, hands down, the FINEST real estate people we have ever had the pleasure of working with. Their knowledge of the GTA, especially market trends in Unionville and Markham, allow them to maximize your selling and buying experiences. Every single person that works with you makes you feel like you are their top priority, from the beginning of the home buying and selling process right through to the end. Caring and professional beyond measure, they set the bar high for other local real estate teams. Chris and I thank you for everything you did for us, in the selling of our property, and for finding us our DREAM HOME! We cannot thank you enough.
If you want the best...call them. You will not be disappointed!"
Sheri & Christopher Caston
"Working with a team of people who made the difficult process of selling our home progress smoothly was truly appreciated. The first visit from Stephen and subsequent meetings with the whole team made it clear to us that this was a service that was a cut above the rest.
We were kept informed every step of the way and provided with recommendations that ultimately resulted in a very positive outcome. Thank you."
Trish & Wilma Dekker
"I’m sure that we’ll be thanking you so many more times for helping to get an amazing price on our house, and of course on finding that DREAM HOUSE in the DREAM LOCATION for us. We were just saying how lucky we were to sign-up with the Team. Kristina's patience with us and her attention to our preferences to get our “perfect house” was remarkable. Even after we sold our house and didn’t find anything for a bit, she really settled us down from being over-anxious on finding something. "
Diane & Wayne
"What we will remember most was the professionalism of all the staff. Also the commitment of each staff member to sell our house. Deb's positive attitude, professionalism and knowledge of our house and the existing market."

"What an incredible team! I cannot say enough. They made what many may look upon as stressful (i.e. selling your house with 2 small kids during Christmas), a quick and efficient process rendering wonderful and memorable results! We ended 2015 and began 2016 in a fabulous way."
T & S
"Stephen & Kristina made the process of the actual sale much less stressful than we imagined it would be. They very carefully laid out the offers & explained the process as we went along. Stephen worked very hard to achieve an amazing outcome! We are so happy with the sale & the terms. "

""Thank you" are such small words compared to the HARD work you all did to put these great big smiles on our faces, but THANK YOU...THANK YOU!"
Alan & Judy Brooks
"Thank you to everyone for your help in purchasing our new home and selling our current one. Your professionalism and knowledge made us feel very confident about each part of the process. Thank you Debby for your reassuring "telepathic" phone calls & Kristina for the hand holding - you were there with us at the beginning and the end. Thanks to Steve especially for setting up and walking us through the final deal."

Thank you so very much!! "

"The dedication and hard work of the Stephen Tar Team was exceptional. They negotiated for the best home value and our personal interest, and we felt that we were truly represented. The market knowledge of Stephen Tar and the marketing effort of the team to sell our home were invaluable. The team always maintained professionalism, understanding and patience and were by far the best real estate agents that we have worked with."
Andre Soriano & Marissa Fortuno
"Thanks to Steve, Debby, Natalie, and the whole Team TAR. You guys made it happen. We are thrilled!!!"
