Kevinn Tam/James Waterhouse

(612) 821-4250

When we work together, the goal is to ensure your satisfaction. And if a glowing testimonial from you is also an outcome, I'll know that I've succeeded.

Here are some comments from past clients.

I could tell from the first time I met Kevinn that he would earn his commission, and he did: thoughtful neighborhood and home value analysis, attention to details, free staging courtesy of his partner, Jim, fabulous photos, great advice on improvements (even lending us his nail gun so I could get the trim work done in a hurry), and
proactively handling all matters related to the listing, sale, and closing of our house.
We received four offers in the first four days and couldn’t be happier!

Kevinn has now helped us sell two houses and buy one. Each time we were completely satisfied with his
level of service and enthusiasm for making the process enjoyable and profitable!

- Matt and Amanda M.



Kevinn was fantastic to work with. We needed a larger house for our growing family but were discouraged that selling in this market would be a nightmare. Not only did Kevinn help get us more for our house than we ever expected, it sold in just 10 days. Kevinn and his partner/stager/decorator Jim did an amazing job helping us stage the house, and I am certain that the touches they recommended are what helped sell the house. For the purchase of our new home, Kevinn was wonderful as he helped us through some hiccups when the sellers failed to do some required repairs and closing had to be delayed. We were afraid we would wind up homeless, but Kevinn kept the deal together and even negotiated for us to move in for free on the original closing date while we waited for the repairs to be completed.

- Julie and Andrew A.



Kevinn was the light at the end of a tunnel for my husband and me after having had two other houses with two other Realtors fall through late in the game. We felt defeated when we started, but Kevinn got us going again. His methodical, analytical approach and his collaborative, open, communicative style made us a great match. He got to know our priorities quickly and soon was able to apply intuition both to bring us potential houses and to weed the others out to make efficient use of our time. When we found “the one!” Kevinn orchestrated all of the logistics and led all the interaction with the sellers’ Realtor to make the negotiation and closing processes as turnkey as possible for us. After the long road we’d been on, he made the good part come to fruition remarkably fast… both getting us a house we truly love (our son, who was a toddler at the time, called it “Pretty House” from the moment we first toured it and for a full year thereafter) and selling our old one in just a day (really!) thanks to great staging help from his partner, Jim. There’s no question we’d hire Kevinn again if ever we need a Realtor. Too bad for him he found us such a perfect home: We’re staying put!

- Dena and Matt L.



"Thank you for helping me purchase my first home. The entire process was, as you called it, “an adventure." You certainly paid attention to what I wanted. I was somewhat discouraged after getting outbid on my first choice, but thank you for bringing me to view a home that I had previously overlooked. I can tell you that I got everything I was looking for after living in this house for a year. Thank you again. Without you I probably wouldn’t have purchased the home I love."

- Todd N.



“With little enthusiasm about our chances, we met with Kevinn and his stager/decorater partner James after our house had spent 6 months on the market (with another agent) and receiving only one very disappointing offer. Kevinn and James stepped in to: pinpoint problem areas in our house (none of which had been mentioned by our previous agent, even when pressed to advise us on changes we could make); stage our home to match the size and character of the house
and neighborhood; and create a more inviting mood in our listing's photographs. In less than 2 weeks on the market, we entertained multiple offers on our house! We cannot recommend Kevinn's and James's services enough. They were professional, knowledgeable, and thoughtful from our initial meeting and throughout the
negotiations and closing. What a difference their services made!”

- Stacy and Chris L.



“I cannot recommend Kevinn enough. Kevinn was invaluable in helping us through the purchase of our first home. We spent several weekends looking at dozens of homes while trying to find exactly what we were looking for. Kevinn was always extremely patient and provided great insight into the many homes we saw. He was able to point out positives and negatives that we would never notice, and could easily help us visualize the hidden potential in homes. When we finally found the property we were looking for, Kevinn was able to help us negotiate a great price and gave us
great ideas to help us improve our new home.

Throughout the entire process, Kevinn was always able to provide easy to understand explanations of real estate terms and concepts. He went out of his way to make us feel like we were his top priority and was always just a phone call away. In addition, as a technology professional and enthusiast, I really appreciated Kevinn's use of email and
the web to keep us informed of the latest listings.

Thanks to Kevinn, our first home-buying experience was extremely positive. Without
question, we will be calling Kevinn the next time we want to move.”

- Steve and Melissa R.



“My husband and I decided to sell our house in one of the toughest markets in history (late 2008), but we had no option since we had to relocate. We interviewed several Realtors, but one talk with Kevinn...and our decision was made. Kevinn is beyond a Realtor; I like to call him an artist. He and his business partner Jim provided services beyond what a regular Realtor does: They gave us tips to enhance our home in an easy and inexpensive way; they helped us procure furniture and décor accessories and were our number one consultants throughout the process for ANY
questions we had. We worked as a team! The very first weekend after our house
was put on the market, Kevinn held an open house and continued to do so for
the next weekend. The house sold in 16 days! Kevinn and Jim are one
of a kind: driven, organized, responsible, and most of all, their ideas are
beyond anything I have ever seen out there!!!”

- Ana Maria J.



“To say that Kevinn Tam goes above and beyond to serve his clients is an understatement. We whole-heartedly believe that you should choose him to assist you with your real estate needs and wants.

Kevinn helped us through the exciting (and sometimes frustrating) process of being a first-time home buyer. We went through many ups and downs during our first ride on the real estate roller coaster and Kevinn was always a phone
call, email or drive away to help educate and advise us, ease our
fears and lift our spirits! Our path to finding our dream home was a long one and Kevinn was always patient and never in a hurry to rush us into a house that wasn’t “the one.” At the beginning of our house hunt we had very broad tastes of what type of homes we liked and thanks to Kevinn he gave us his time to help us find what we truly wanted and now we are in a home that we couldn’t love more! Kevinn is knowledgeable, professional, thoughtful and fun. We miss our days of jumping
in the car with him to go out looking at properties!

Kevinn will definitely be our Realtor for all our future home buying and selling needs.
We are proud to call Kevinn our Realtor and lucky to call him our friend.”

- Anne & Steve W.



“Kevinn walked me through the steps of being a first time home buyer by paying close attention to the qualities that I wanted in my first home. He was available at a moment's notice via email and phone
to answer any questions that I had. Kevinn even put forth the effort to climb
through a doggy
door of a garage, just so I could take a peak (the garage was locked during our viewing).
Nevertheless, that is the house that I ended up purchasing.

I look forward to working with Kevinn again on my future real estate needs.”

- Jake W.



“Kevinn helped us buy our first home through a very long and sticky foreclosure situation. Thanks for your patience and hard work to help us call a house our home. We truly appreciate all you’ve done!”

In other words:

“It was a hard-fought battle, but we landed the trophy fish!! Thank you for your hard work Kevinn!
The new place is shibby!”

- Patrick M.



“Buying your first home is a huge decision and will inevitably be intimidating and confusing at times. It's absolutely imperative to have someone with extensive experience and your best interests
in mind to help guide
you through the difficult decisions. In my first experience
buying a home, Kevinn Tam was this person.

Working with Kevinn was a refreshing shot of professionalism in an industry where many are out to make a quick buck. Kevinn was extremely thorough and explained confusing clauses, acronyms, etc. to a couple
of newbies in the housing market. Most important of all, Kevinn never put pressure on us to write
offers... he was never trying to sell us on a house. Literally, until the day we closed on our first
home, Kevinn would send us new listings daily just in case something new caught our eye. It's
the small things like this that let me know we were working not only with a knowledgeable
professional, but someone who sincerely cared about his clients. Kevinn wants to find
best house for your situation... he simply will not settle for placing you in any home.

If you are thinking about buying a house and don't have any experience doing so, I would strongly recommend Kevinn. Thanks again Kevinn!”

- Andrew C.



“We don’t think anyone else could have done the job Kevinn did for us in selling our home. We have told him this in person several times, but now want to put it in writing. His professionalism, demeanor and integrity are way more than we expected of a Realtor, and his confidence throughout the months our home was on the market [in a very difficult environment] continued to buoy our spirits right up until the time our house sold.

His services have provided a major positive impact on our present and future life.”

- Dan and Marcia V.



“Kevinn brought an amazing amount of personal energy to our house selling and buying experiences. His thorough marketing strategy included meticulous staging of our house as well as creative promotion of
our offer to the sellers of our new home. During the process, he quickly responded to our questions
and provided us with the information we needed to sell and buy with confidence. All with stunning
results: our house sold in four days within our desired price range in a very difficult buyers’ market
and we negotiated a great deal on our new house. We highly recommend Kevinn as your
Realtor of choice.”

- Lynn Selene and Clark Whiting



“Our house selling experience was quite the whirlwind; Kevinn was awesome! From day one Kevinn guided us through the process, answering all of our questions thoughtfully and thoroughly. Kevinn ultimately helped our home present beautifully on the market. Kevinn’s professional, friendly and experience- driven attitude made the sale of our home a breeze.

When we began our search for a new home, we were open to nearly anything. With Kevinn’s expertise and patience we were able to efficiently pinpoint our priorities and quickly able to streamline our search. Kevinn was always able to see potential in homes that we looked at; he has a knack for what modern families want in a home and how to achieve it from classic vintage architecture. Kevinn’s positive outlook kept our spirits up and ultimately led us to find the house we had
been dreaming about. Kevinn’s attention to detail, professionalism and most of all
positive attitude made our house hunt a successful, fun adventure.”

- Andrea and Jamie V.



“One of the qualities I grew to appreciate most about Kevinn was his attention to detail. He was always prepared for our home tours with printouts and often had first-hand accounts from his previews of the homes I was about to see. Kevinn’s attention to detail also was beneficial when I had my home inspection after I had found a home I wanted and my offer had been accepted. Kevinn walked through the home with the inspector and me and noticed aspects of the home that even
the inspector had missed...Above and beyond all else, Kevinn is an intelligent and personable individual, which made the often-exhausting process of searching for a home enjoyable.”

- Lesley L.



“We had a much different impression of Kevinn than with other Realtors. The others seemed to want to sell us something right away, and if we weren't gonna buy, they lost interest in us. Kevinn seemed to care more about what we wanted to accomplish rather than just to sell us something...We now own another home that Kevinn helped us find—a small home in a great neighborhood that we are going to remodel and expand...We will work with Kevinn again and we look forward to it. We feel that throughout the process, he was looking out for our best interests.”

- Dave & Joyce L.



“Kevinn helped indoctrinate me into the investment property business—from providing daily e-mails on
new investment properties on the market to sending me relevant news articles and then helping to
locate local contractors to help with improvements. Kevinn’s a likable guy and made my
investment search fun and rewarding!”
