    Chris and Tamara went above and beyond to explain the entire home buying process to me when I was trying to vet other real estate agents. Where other real estate agents would call me for 15 minutes and provide little to no documents, Chris and Tamara sat me through an hour plus video call and answered all of my questions thoroughly and patiently. I also did not feel pressure at all from Chris and Tamara to rush in to buying a house. Another huge plus to gain my vote of confidence was their time serving on the board of National Association of Realtors and stellar reviews from my close colleague. One thing that really impressed me was that Chris and Tamara were very accommodating of my schedule. They always made it so that we were able to view homes that came on to the market ASAP that worked with both of mine and their schedules; even going so far as to line up multiple showings consecutively on the same day! Chris and Tamara have excellent communication skills and work seamlessly and cohesively as a team. I was informed of all calls and emails throughout escrow and we were able to close within the allotted amount of time we stated in our offer without issues. I truly believe that Chris and Tamara have my best interests at heart and their network of contacts have as great a work ethic as both of them. For example, there was a time where I was on the fence about putting an offer on a house. They stated to me that if I was hesitant about it, then it's not the house for me; assuring me that the right one would come. That moment gave me more confidence in their ability to help me make clear judgements and sound decisions. I could only imagine how other agents would have taken advantage of me in that opportunity, but Chris and Tamara were patient and understanding. During this hot seller's market, Chris and Tamara were very composed and enthusiastic which translates to all parties involved. I have heard stories from other friends and colleagues about how stressful buying a house was for them, but Chris and Tamara made this a very pleasant and enjoyable experience for me. Overall, Chris and Tamara are both extraordinarily passionate about their work and it is very rare to see people love their work just as much as they do. I would LOVE to work with them again in a heartbeat and would not hesitate to recommend them to others.

    The way we all wish RE could be! Tamara Suminski and Chris Duff were very knowledgeable and patient throughout the process. They guided us at every step to determine when and what to renovate prior to sale, based on market knowledge and data. Ultimately, they determined the ideal time to sell the property which resulted in 20+ solid offers over a weekend. They were a pleasure to work with and we give them our highest recommendation.

    As first time home buyers, we were really looking for Realtors we could trust and would take the time to walk us through all the ins and outs. We couldn't have asked for a better team than Tamara Suminski and Chris Duff! Not only are they incredibly knowledgeable, but they take the time to educate you, provide realistic expectations and make sure you are comfortable every step of the way. Their attention to detail, efficiency and communication is also spot on. Tamara and Chris are all around good people and we would recommend them in a heartbeat.

    From the moment we contacted Tamara Suminski and Chris Duff to the close of escrow we knew we were in good hands. We always felt confident and not once did we worry. They took what can often be a stressful situation and kept us at ease through the entire process. They were professional in ever sense of the word, and went above and beyond on a daily basis to help get us the best deal for our property.

    I appreciated their enthusiasm and great suggestions of what I needed to do to get property ready to market. They were A+ agents in every sense of the word from our first contact to our last. They know their jobs and the market better that any other agents I am aware of. I absolutely could not have selected any one better! I honestly could not believe how responsive they were to my every call and email. I'm not the most patient person, but they always made me feel like their most important client and that nothing I asked was impossible (or stupid). And....everything was accomplished quickly. In addition to all of the above, Tamara and Chris arranged for my property to be video'd by a drone and posted it with the MLS listing! Excellent use of all available resources to ensure maximum exposure! I counted the MLS as both print and on-line advertising since it is available in both. I just wish Tamara and Chris were here and could help me find me a house. I know their focused, high-energy, knowledgeable approach to their clients and the market would benefit me greatly!

    This was my first transaction with Beach Real Estate Group. I was referred to them by a different agent I had previously enjoyed working with. His referral gave me all the confidence I needed to engage Tamara and Chris. Tamara and Chris demonstrated themselves to be true professionals in our search for purchase of a residence for corporate housing. They made the process easy and demonstrated themselves to be shrewd negotiators. All other aspects of the transaction were handled with the utmost professionalism--nothing was missed. We even got a solar system out of the purchase. Tamara and Chris impressed me with their attention to detail, with their passion for their business, their desire to do right by their client and also their transparency. You will not find a more ethical pair of realtors out there! They are honest and full of integrity--I have absolute trust and confidence in both. Because I represent a large corporation, we hit a few snags internally with making sure the right people had signed off on the purchase of our first transaction together. This created a serious delay on our side. Tamara and Chris were able to save the day and keep the seller from walking and we moved to a successful close. If you're in a tight situation, give Tamara and Chris a call.

    Tamara is an absolute professional--extremely knowledgeable and incredibly detail oriented. We generated over 30 offers on our most recent transaction. The property moved incredibly quickly and for more than what we had anticipated. I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome and Tamara made the journey easy. I represent a large corporation and with any large corporation decisions require several approval steps. Tamara and Chris are incredibly patient and understanding--extremely helpful and easy to work with. I cannot say enough good things about Chris. Chris is equally as pleasant to work with, knowledgeable and relatable. I am extremely grateful to both Tamara and Chris for facilitating a successful transaction. I could not be more pleased to be working with Tamara and Chris--we will absolutely be working together again.

    It was an absolute pleasure working with Tamara and her team. Everyone was very friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable. They remained professional yet very personable which made the entire process of selling and buying a home a great experience. When selling our home, Tamara and her team were amazing. From staging, building the website and the interactions with potential buyers... we were amazed about the attention to detail she and her team spent to ensure that the property was perfect and the potential buyers were well informed. Buying and searching for a home was also a fun and exciting experience. Even when we were torn between houses, Tamara and her team remained patient, accommodating and insightful throughout the process. Even took the extra step to relate with my wife and I by putting themselves in our shoes. Until the very last mile and with some time constraints, Tamara and her team worked tirelessly to get us across the finish line thus landing us in a house we absolutely love. Tamara and her team are more than just realtors to me and my wife. We consider them as friends after all this. Tamara and her team doesn’t just help buy and sell homes. They build and establish relationships. They are truly value added realtors...

    Tamara literally helped me with the buy AND sell of our home in Azusa and during this difficult time of COVID-19, we couldn't have asked for a better team, a better outcome, and a smooth transaction. They were in constant communication and maintained constant awareness and knowledge with the situation as the laws revolving real estate fluidly changed daily. They kept us informed. Short story, based on their incredible marketing strategy, their communication with the buyers and their advice to go for virtual staging when no open houses were allowed, we were able to get multiple offers with one offer above asking which we eventually took. Escrow closed in 21 days or so. Its unbelievable how fast and effortless the sale was, and it was all due to Tamara, Chris, and her team. I would highly recommend.

    Absolutely Phenomenal! We heard, listened and talked through all aspects of making a great sale and comfortable with the family that we sold our family home too because of BEACH REAL ESTATE GROUP. Tamara is a real powerhouse and makes the word dynamic sound pale in comparison to how she makes everything come together and deliver as promised. Again, very detailed oriented and handled everything allowing us as less stress as possible and never once during the sale left us alone (even when they had to be out of town) they were always on top of the slightest issue with the buyers, contractors, lenders, etc. What can we say we Love them like Family, because they took care of us as if we were their own Family! So Blessed and Forever Thankful

    Tamara is the best of the best and we could not have asked for a better realtor! This was our first time selling a home and didn't have any experience going into it. That was not an issue because Tamara did a great job holding our hand during the process. She came to our first meeting well prepared, with a formal proposal that included market comps, a marketing plan, timeline, etc. We left our first meeting feeling confident in Tamara and she lived up to (actually, she surpassed) our expectations. Our home sold for above asking in just 14 days (from listing date to close of escrow). She did a great job keeping us up to date during the entire process, providing relevant knowledge to assist us in the sales process and instead of giving us suggestions, would provide us informative insight so that we could make the best decisions for our family. During this process, she also assisted us in purchasing a home as well. We knew our criteria for a new home was difficult (specific location, layout, budget, timeline, etc..) however, she was patient, understanding, optimistic/positive and relentless. She made it her priority (or at least that is how we felt) to find us THE house, no matter how many houses she had to show us. When we did finally find the one, we faced MANY difficult challenges (this is an understatement to say the least), however, Tamara fought for us and did anything needed to ensure we were able to call this house our home. We are certain that if we had gone with any other realtor, our chances of winning the bidding war (there were 7 other bids, including all cash offers) and successsfully closing escrow (we faced EXTREME difficulties during the process), would haven been slim. We are proud to have had Tamara as our realtor and highly recommend her.

    Tamara Suminski's thorough knowledge about local communities combined with her meticulous attention to detail and efficient time management skills have helped us find the right home we were looking for. She has followed up and delivered on her commitments even long after the escrow has closed. I would highly recommend Tamara to anyone looking to buy a property in South Bay/West Side of Los Angeles area.

    Tamara Suminski provided A+++ service with tremendous care, concern, knowledge, and I felt I was #1 on her list always, even though I know she was extremely busy. I would say she is the absolute best in her field and have shared my experience with her to family and friends. I feel very blessed and fortunate to have such a major milestone in my life be cared for by Tamara. She kept me calm and went above and beyond to take care of anything and everything that came up. She is and always will be my #1 recommendation. At times I truly believed she was a miracle worker!! Thank you Tamara Suminski!!!

    Our experience with Tamara from the start was pleasant and professional! She is a highly motivated and experienced agent. Her extensive knowledge of the real estate industry was evident in how she advised us during our search and subsequence lease. It was obvious early on that Tamara is extremely excited about what she does and makes it a priority that her clients are informed and are able to see homes commensurate with their needs. Tamara did a tremendous job for us and we look forward to working her in the near future on a more permanent purchase. We would not hesitate to recommend Tamara to anyone looking for a really great real estate agent.
