Guess its ok, but if what happens if they need to show homes day after day? Will they handle it well? Its been my experience that many will not. - btw, This would have been a good post for the Agent-2-Agent section.
I don't know Don Dutton personally, but I like his posts and he has been around the Tacoma area a long time... longer than I have. I personally work with Ft. Lewis and McChord with their online Relocation services and place a lot of Military personnel. We assist with shipping, moving and utility needs too. -
As for local info for your people..., there are jobs here and certain areas boast better schools than others plus there are a couple bedroom communities that appear to be more desirable than others. There are certainly some areas that may not be best for your friends to move into.... but most Agents will not post that kind of possibly discriminating information on a Public forum...right?
Home prices can be from $136,000 for a 2 bedroom average home in an average area, to $249,000 for a fairly nice 3 bed, 2 bath home in an average neighborhood. Upscale areas can demand upwards of $289,000 to $349,000 or more for 3 bed/2bath homes. --- One good option may be to rent until they get to know the area better..., even 3-6 months.
Now be nice all you out of area Agents who posted for Tacoma business, and don't give me too many thumbs down. - oh go ahead if you must. - hehehe ;-)

Thanx so much!
By a few days you have a many agents giving a lot of info about themselves and what they know about the market. I liked how Debi set it up talk about openning the communication with your clients, yourslef and us in Tacoma. For your info Tacoma is set up in many different areas. If your clients are looking in North tacoma and Fircrest I would also enjoy talking to you and your clients to see how I and my full time staff can help you find them what they need and want in there new home. If they have children and need to know about the schools let me know. Having young kids myself I know the schools first hand.
Blessings, Make it a great day.
