    Wendy Tanson is an extrodinary person to work with. She is and outstanding realtor and exceeded our expectations and hopes in purchasing our home. With our needs, she worked with us for nearly a year, helping us to get aquainted with and become familiar with the process of buyin a home.Since she is a professional, she was able to get us in to visit the home we purchased with a phone call, after another property was not suitable. Her patience and knowledge of the areas in Durham and the surrounding areas made us confident that we were making the right choice with our purchase and comfortable with the process.We had many questions which she answered about the property and services needed and continues to help us even after the closing.We are so grateful for her help and guidance. We highly recommend Wendy Tanson and Nest Realty to any prospective home buyers!

    Wendy was our real estate agent for a land purchase. I would strongly recommend her. She is incredibly knowledgeable and extremely responsive. Having Wendy in our corner and advocating for our best interests was incredibly comforting and set us at ease throughout the whole process especially as first-time property owners. As we experienced some additional challenges through the process, Wendy was a steadfast source of support.

    Wendy is everything you could want in a realtor. She is incredibly responsive, has great communications skills, pays close attention to details, and is really smart. She is also a warm and kind person who has her clients' best interests at heart.My husband and I bought a house with Wendy's assistance in 2008 and then sold that house with her help in July 2022. She was very patient with us during the buying process, showing us many homes until we were clear on what we wanted.I spoke to her many times over the past few years as we considered selling the home. She always was friendly and helpful. When we decided to put the house on the market, she did a great job marketing it. She also gave us a thorough list of things we could do to enhance the home's value. In addition, she helped stage the home, bringing her own accessories and placing them where needed.As we were lucky enough to have multiple offers within a couple of days, Wendy helped us negotiate and choose the best offer. I can't recommend her highly enough. She makes buying and selling a home as easy and pleasant as possible.

    Wendy was absolutely outstanding in every respect as we worked through our relocation to the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill area. She quickly processed what our needs and desires were and steered us to some great house options. We found our new home during our first visit because she had done excellent pre-work in focusing our efforts. Wendy provided great advice in this tight housing market, including an effective strategy for a multi-bid situation on the home we bought. She went above and beyond what we expected in every respect: she helped us find a handyman to quickly and effectively complete a task before our household goods were delivered to our new home. She even figured out a scheduling issue with closing on our previous home in which we were represented by another agent. Thanks to Wendy's insight, we avoided a disconnect in securing the funds from that sale and applying them to our new Durham home. I can't imagine a better choice for ensuring a smooth move to this area than Wendy Tanson!

    Wendy was absolutely wonderful to work with! Incredibly responsive to all of my emails and texts. I ended up purchasing a new construction home and she was also great working with the builder and inspectors to coordinate walk throughs, etc. I always felt like I could reach out with any questions or uncertainties, which was great being a first time buyer.

    Our recent move from the Chapel Hill/Chatham County area to Durham was made so much smoother with Wendy as our Realtor. In this competitive seller's market, having an ally like Wendy on your side can make all the difference. She helped us price the home right, created a wonderful photo and video display, and helped navigate what turned out to be a 48 hour, eight contender bidding war, resulting in a sale over $30,000 more than the list price. She made herself available literally 24/7 and helped us make the best decisions every step of the way! We highly recommend Wendy Tanson as either a buying or selling agent as one of us has also both purchased and sold with her before.....almost six years ago. When you find a pro, you stick with them!!!

    Wendy did an outstanding job helping us with the sale of our home. She was extremely knowledgeable with real estate transactions, gave great advice and was very efficient with communication. I would highly recommend her to anyone selling or buying a home.

    We’ve used Wendy twice, once when we first moved to NC 17 years ago and recently. She helped us find a new house and sell our existing home.She was patient with our numerous requests for what we wanted in a new home and offered her knowledge to help us make a successful offer. We love our new house. Wendy went through our house that we were selling and offered suggestions for staging to show the best features of our house. We had multiple offers and were very happy with the offers. Highly recommend Wendy, friendly, professional and successful and will use again!

    As first time home buyers new to the Triangle area, we are SO grateful to Wendy for her help. She walked us through the process, helped us set realistic expectations, connected us with local experts (our lender, lawyer, and contractor), recommended a winning data-informed offer strategy (we got the first house we put an offer in on), and was overall super enjoyable to work with. We recommend her highly, and would definitely want to work with her again if we were buying or selling. Thanks Wendy!

    Wendy is the perfect combination of being a serious professional and a warm person you can easily trust. Buying a home is a daunting and overwhelming process, but Wendy walked us through every step, catching things we needed to pay attention to and helping us avoid risks. Wendy is always on time, prepared with information, quick to respond and has an incomparable intuition for and knowledge of Triangle real estate. Before landing with Wendy, we met with a few other realtors, who were good but who each left us disappointed in some way. I've not met a more capable realtor and we even enjoyed our home buying process with Wendy! We are first time home buyers and were thrilled to close on the first house we offered on!
