If you are a Seller...
If you are a Buyer...
Selling a house at our price range in Tulsa is painful. Peter and his team professionally guide us to stage each room and helps us market our house. He also helps us to clean the front and back patio ceiling to be prepared for the open house. All of these works helped our house get sold at perfect time, the end of school semester. We thanks for his very nice and professional work. :-)
Working with Peter Tamura was by far the best experience we have had when buying or selling a home. Peter is very attentive and was excellent about staying in contact with us. My wife and I were pretty indecisive when looking for this home and Peter continued to present us with great options throughout our search. Peter worked around our schedule and was very fast getting us in to homes we wanted to look at. Without a doubt, Peter will be the first guy I call when it is time to sell or purchase another home.
We were extremely pleased with Peter Tamara. He is very knowledgeable and understanding of the stresses involved in selling and purchasing real estate. He listed our home and we were very impressed with the professional manner in which our home was displayed on their website. Our home sold in 5 days. We were so pleased with him that we used him to help our daughter purchase her first home. We couldn't have asked for a more helpful and patient realtor. I would highly recommend Peter to anyone in the market for a home...he is excellent!!!
My wife and I are really grateful we got such a great realtor. Peter was both knowledgable and professional. He would always get back with us in a timely manner and made us feel like we were a priority. I guess simply put, Peter went the extra mile for us. He would rearrange his schedule for us. As we found the house we wanted he walked us through the process before it would happen, then as it happened as well. Both my wife and I will refer him. Also when that time comes to purchase a house again, we will know where to turn.
Peter treated us like a a beloved family member from the minute we started working with him. We moved to Tulsa from Kansas City. Peter went out of his way to check out places we couldn't since we were out of town initially
Once we came to town to go to our "Gotta Check out" homes, he was very good at letting us air out our comments.
Peter guided us rather well during the negotiation phase., Peter found high quality inspectors in short amount of time. His communication of what is next step was crystal clear. And the closing process was effortless.
Peter knows his market and has great team to make finding a new home a pleasant experience from start to finish.
We listed our home with Peter Tamura on 9/21 and closed on 12/29, so it was a relatively quick sale - but it was wild ride and without Peter's expertise, it would not have happened. We got a questionable inspection from someone hired by our first potential buyer. It caused her to back out. Peter was able to get an objective 2nd opinion that was acceptable (honestly objective - this person did not know the results of the first) and we were able to move on. The 2nd buyer knew of both inspections and hired his own who also knew nothing of the first inspections and also gave an acceptable report. Without Peter's assistance of finding an objective inspector, that first flawed inspection might have caused us to lose so much value that we couldn't sell the house. Peter helped us navigate our way through a few small repairs that needed to be done and we were close to the finish line --- And THEN the house was vandalized the day before the appraisal was to be done and 2 weeks before our scheduled closing date. Again Peter helped us as we worked with the buyer and his agent in determining the best way to restore the property in a manner acceptable to the buyer and work with the appraiser in rescheduling in an effort to make our closing date. Although we did end up rescheduling the closing to 6 days after the original date, we got there very successfully and on good terms with both the buyer and the buyer's realtor. Peter gave us a good understanding of each part of the process, kept us informed and was easily accessible when we had a question. Thank you, Peter for helping us through that adventure!
Peter did a great job selling my house! He returned my calls and texts promptly, worked hard, held several open houses and made the final process go very smoothly!
Our home search was challenging from the very beginning due to the tight term and budget but Peter understood our needs and made all his efforts to help us to find a number of properties and and once we had chosen one, he did speed up the process so that it was completed within two weeks. That was possible also due to the professionalism of other entities Peter works with (e.g. The title company, inspectors, appraiser, etc).
For the selection of the house Peter supported us by providing his knowledge of the market and the area. He was much available and kept us updated through all the process.
We would like to work with Peter in the future.
Peter and Margaret are by far the most talented and impressive team of realtors I've ever dealt with. The entire process was not only smooth but fast and fairly easy. Peter listened to every detail of what we wanted and got back to me very quickly. Searching for our new house with Peter was fun and relaxing because he was so knowledgeable. Peter sold our old house in only 9 DAYS to the first people who looked at it!!!! We couldn't be happier with our experience with Peter, Margaret and Coldwell Banker. If you need a realtor you'd be silly not to use them. They are the VERY BEST!
From the moment we started working with Peter to the end was fantastic. In total he probably showed us 30 homes before we found the one and his responsiveness was the same throughout. I would recommend anyone looking for a house to give Peter a call!
We were very pleased to have Peter Tamura as our realtor. We felt he was professional and had our back. We were interested in a couple of houses and were ready to make an offer. He told us the downside of both these houses. Another realtor might have gone forward just to make a sell. Peter made the comment,"you're going to be in that house a long time. I want you to be happy." + Peter was friendly, always available and returned every call lpromptly.
Peter was wonderful to work with during my home buying process as well as his knowledge of landlord pros/cons of different housing was extremely helpful. He definitely got me off to a good start with my first rental home. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for their next home or their next rental home.
We chose Margaret to help us with our recent home buying experience because of her 5 star rating. She truly deserves it, not only did she have a vast knowledge in real estate but has a wonderful base of people to refer. She took us from start to finish without a hitch. Thanks Margaret!
Margaret is very friendly & knowledgeable about the real estate market in the Green Country area around Tulsa. if you are looking for someone to help you purchase a home or investment properties, Margaret would be the person I would talk with today!
I have had experience working with 3-4 other real estate agents in the past, and by far, Ms. Bannochie was the most professional, accessible and helpful agent. Her demeanor was always friendly and she made me feel she was available to help in any way possible. As intimidating as selling a house can be, I wouldn't hesitate to go through it again, with Ms. Bannochie by my side.
Margaret guided me through the home selling process in a tough market. She offered helpful suggestions and addressed all of my concerns. Margaret's knowledge and experience were great assets in keeping everything moving along, from the first offer through closing. She responded to my inquiries in a timely manner and kept me informed. My house sold quickly. It was a pleasure working with Margaret. I recommend that you call Margaret Bannochie if you are thinking of selling your home.
Margaret is extremely knowledgeable. She is very responsive and I know she has made many transactions come together because of her excellent negotiation skills.
Margaret is not only our realtor, but she is our friend. When we were first introduced to Margaret, we were highly impressed with her professionalism and friendliness. We had gone through a difficult home buying experience, before meeting Margaret. Once we started working with Margaret, we knew we were in good hands. Margaret is very knowledgeable and talented in the real estate industry. And most importantly, we enjoy working with her and never feel pressured. She goes above and beyond what we expect from a realtor. We have referred several friends, who have been just as happy as us. We plan to go to Margaret for all our real estate needs in the future. In the meantime, we look forward to her occasional calls just to say hello.
Margaret is great to work with. She takes care of everything & makes the process of buying or selling a pleasure. You cannot help but to trust her with everything. Is very sincere & always there when you need her. Very helpful with anything you may not fully understand. I would recommend her to anyone I know that is looking for a home or selling their home.
Margaret recently sold us a townhome near downtown Tulsa. She showed us 5-6 properties all of which were within the criteria we were considering for the purchase. Margaret's experience also made the financing, closing and smoothing out the hiccups that occur with any move much easier. We would recommend Margaret to anyone looking for a home no matter what price range.
The BANNOCHIE TEAM, Margret Bannochie and her son Peter Tamura sold our house in 73 days for the full listing price. From the first day we met with them we we’re impressed with their professionalism and knowledge of the area, and we were confident we had found the right realtors. We did our part in that we followed the suggestions found on their site and made our house as presentable as possible, and they did their part by expertly marketing our home. We would highly recommend anyone needing to sell their house, to contact them, they exceeded our expectations.
I am so glad I met Peter. He made buying a house such an easy process. He listened to what I wanted in a home and only showed me homes he knew I would be interested in. He gave me great advice throughout the process. I was impressed with the way Peter took care of repair issues and issues with the seller. He truly worked for me during this process. I would not hesitate to recommend Peter to friends and family.
Peter is an exceptional person that wants you to find that home you want. I am very thankful that we found Peter as our real-estate agent. I will be frank, my wife and I were always skeptic about using real-estate agents. We are do-it-yourselfers. We now believe that we probably could not have bought this home if we did not have Peter as our realtor. My wife and I selected a home with many loose ends and challenges that had to be overcome before we could even buy the home. I am used to having to make sure that any issues are resolved. I soon realized that Peter follows-up on any issues and leaves no stone unturned. Additionally, he has connections and can provide reputable help (home repairs, installations, etc.). Anyone looking for buying or selling a home needs to contact Peter.
I met Peter Tamura at an open house he was holding. I was not interested in that house, but when I left I felt he was someone I would be comfortable working with when I started my search in earnest. He made a follow up call to me just as I had decided to start looking for a new home. We looked at many houses, most not what I wanted. I made an offer on one house, but could not agree on the price. Peter was always helpful, friendly, and comfortable to be around. I have met many real estate people, and do not respond well to any type of pressure. Peter never tried to pressure me, but provided wise guidance on neighborhoods, the condition of the houses, and was helpful in the negotiating process(I am a bad negotiator). When I finally found the right house, I just knew it, and made an offer the same day. Peter suggested I ask for the homeowners warranty, which I would not have thought of. It was a wise move. I am now in my new home, and am very happy with it. I would recommend Peter Tamura to anyone. He made the process pleasant and worry free.
Peter was great throughout the whole buying experience. After listening to what I was looking for, Peter showed me several homes and helped me to find exactly what I was looking for. Within two weeks, we found the one I bought. Peter made the whole process as easy as possible. When the inspection revealed a few minor problems, he took the lead in working with the listing agent and seller to get them fixed. If you want a realtor that will actually listen to you not just show what they want you to buy, call Peter. I know I will when I buy my next house.
We met Peter and Margaret at Re-max when we were first looking for a house. Peter is a Awesome person to become acquainted with. He is a people person who takes great care in his clients. Peter was more than willing to show my family every house we wanted to see. My family had certain needs as we have four girls. We were looking for a four bedroom house with 2 bathrooms that was in either Union or Ba school district. We looked for months before we narrowed our search to three houses. When we made a decision on a house Peter once again was very helpful in advice on what to offer and what to expect. I am very pleased with our Home and that we have the very best real-estate agent and Friend Peter Tamura. I would recommend Peter and Margaret for every one that is in need of a real-estate agent.
We moved half way across the country to Tulsa, Oklahoma about four years ago. We talked to Peter on the phone before we moved to Tulsa and gave him ideas of what we were looking for in a home and he had listings ready to look at before we even made it to Tulsa. When we finally made to it to Tulsa, Peter took us to dinner and showed us around the first night to welcome us to town. We where very picky about what we wanted in a home and Peter took us house hunting for five months and never acted impatient or irritated that we had not decided on a home, but made notes of what we liked and disliked about certain properties. Peter was so considerate by packing a lunch cooler to bring snacks and drinks since our three year old son went with us every time. Peter finally helped us find a perfect neighborhood for our family and has since become not only a good friend, but part of our extended family.
My wife and I had a very interesting house hunt with Peter. Peter took us to at least 30-40 houses in a 2 month period of time. We had some interesting encounters to say the least. One of which was at a house in BA that we were going to put an offer on..... that is, until we were being shot at by a 13 year old sniper with a pellet gun, from a bedroom window, two houses down.
We had a good image of what we both wanted but couldn't agree that we had found it. We hah one specific house that we both agreed on that was already in closing for it's second time. Peter said there was about a 10% chance of us getting it. I asked him to stick with it and he did. As we were at our wits end and closing in on the end of our time frame, we took our family to visit this house one more time. That day the house was put back on the market and Peter sealed the deal for us.
I would reccomend Peter because he truly does what it takes to get his clients into the right home. he is persistant, educated, reliable, and very loyal to his client. He handled business at the negotiation table as well.
You'll be in great hands with Peter Tamura
Peter was very helpful throughout the whole process and was very knowledgeable about the procedures and steps for me to buy my home. I would DEFINITELY recommend him for anyone who is wanting buy or sell their home.
Peter was very helpful and answered all my questions. He helped me with each step in buying my home and for that i am truly grateful.
My wife and I met Peter Tamura when we were interested in purchasing our first home in April 2008. He was extremely professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. We were a little clueless with it being our first purchase and Peter was amazing throughout the entire process. He scored us an excellent price on the best house in the market for our price range. We couldn't have been more pleased. Since then, our family plans changed and we decided we wanted to upgrade and move to the suburbs and Peter has been an invaluable asset again. Peter provides the total package, and we have recommended him to any friends getting ready to start the home buying process. I imagine we'll be set for quite a while with our new home, but without a doubt we will use Peter Tamura for all future real estate purchases.
My wife and I met Peter Tamura while we were searching for our first home together in 2009. We chose RE/MAX because of its reputation.
When we first met Peter, we thought he was knowledgeable, courteous and professional. I felt that I could trust him to keep our best interests in mind through the buying process.
Peter took the time to get to know us and understand the type of home we were looking for. He was clear about what each potential home had to offer and what it did not. He never tried to sell us what we did not want or could not afford.
Peter impressed me further when we chose the home we wanted to buy. He is a go-getter, give it everything you got type of businessman. He is a businessman that knows the market and is confident in his knowledge. After telling him what we were willing to offer, he gave us wise advise regarding our offer which ended up saving us several thousand dollars! Knowing that he earns a living on commission, we were impressed that he worked to get us the best deal possible.
A year later, we are still happy in our home. I will never buy a home without Peter.
