What Other's Are Saying

You were the best realtor Tiphni. Moving across country, finding a home is not an easy thing, but you made it fun and a adventure. So glad we had a chance meeting at that open house... but I don't think it was chance it was how it was meant to be.

 It has been a wonderful experience to work with Tiphni in the sale of our home.  She was very knowledgeable when we had questions, never let anything get past her, always followed up with prospective buyers, and kept us well informed.  Her advertisement and promotion of our home was more than we expected resulting in multiple offers and sale within two weeks of listing.  Friends of ours were very impressed and said they had never had, or seen, a Realtor work so hard for a client!

Ralph and Karen Moody


Tiphni is always dedicated and professional in all aspects of our work together and she contributed greatly to the success of my work.  She has the ability to multi-task and always fulfilled requests in a timely and accurate manner.  She is skilled in analytics and provides very thorough research that is presented in a clear format.  She often takes initiative to provide additional relevant information to help move business along.  I am delighted to say that Tiphni was an ideal colleague with great work ethics and extremely high values and morals.  Tiphni is a very smart and conscientious employee. 

Dolly Lee Varvis


Tiphni has consistently been very quick to respond to any question I send her way and any action steps that need to occur she is just as quick to get the right people involved to make things happen.  She was a great resource and teacher.   It seemed there was no question I could ask to stump her and now, even with all the knowledge I have accrued over the years, I still do not think I have been able to send her a question she is not able to answer or know exactly who to contact to get it.  She is an amazing resource for our team and a great team player.

 Kelly Daugherty 


Tiphni has a wealth of knowledge and insight.  She has helped me on numerous occasions putting together information to tell a story the service capabilities that will benefit and grow a client’s business.   There has never been a research question that she has not been able to answer.  Tiphni would be an excellent addition to any research team, she has a passion for what she does and it shows through her work.   Her turn-around time on considerable projects such as these is truly amazing. Lastly, Tiphni just gets stuff done without being reminded; not even once and she does so with such a positive, can-do attitude. 

Stephanie Covey 


She is organized, efficient and willing to go above and beyond.   

Johanna Flores 


I was consistently impressed by Tiphni’s ability stay focused.  She used her focus, to both motivate others, and help increase sales directly.  Tiphni was also extremely organized and knowledgeable.  She was instrumental on many appointments, as a voice of reason, and a sounding board for clients who don't often get an opportunity to have the chance to get a research perspective in a meeting.  I felt extremely lucky to have worked with Tiphni, as I considered her an enormous asset to the company.  

Kari Losh 


I wish everyone was as efficient and helpful as you are.  We’d be making a lot more sales.  WOW!  Tiphni, this is above and beyond what I expected to get on such notice.  You always amaze me. I know there have been a lot of other times when you helped me get research very quickly, which is something I’ve always admired about your work ethic.  You do have the sense of urgency that typically, is found only within the immediate sales group.  I feel that I can always count on you to help me even when I’m panicking at the last minute…and the best part is you always do it very calmly and with a smile.  You are a powerful engine that hums very quietly, but very efficiently in our hectic day to day sales operation. 

Millie Viola 


I can always relay on Tiphni’s expertise and her ability to get the information needed to make a strong pitch, substantiated by relevant custom market research.  Her work and support has become one of my greatest sales tools. 

Janelle Slipp


Tiphni has been instrumental in providing me with necessary research to further develop new and existing business.  She is always on top of her game and goes above and beyond her job title to ensure that she’s providing the best information to help me.  Tiphni is a true professional that needs to be recognized for her hard work and efforts.   Tiphni is a shining star that is very humble and doesn’t brag about her accomplishments.  I’m stepping up to let you know that my business wouldn’t be as strong as it is today if Tiphni wasn’t here.  I appreciate her so much and I’m not alone in these thoughts. 

Samantha Watson 


I think Tiphni is so vital to the selling process.  I believe that a well drafted and customized piece of research can be the key component that turns a prospect into a sale.  That is exactly the kind of knowledge and advantage Tiphni gives to the sales staff.  Besides that, she is always so willing to lend a hand.  In my experience, it doesn't seem to matter how obscure the request might seem.  If she can't find exactly what I'm looking for, she'll dig a little deeper and find something just as good.   She's resourceful, and efficient and very good at what she does.
