Team Tashana is ready to impress you!

Who is Tashana?

She is the Managing Broker at GL2 Real Estate/Green Lightning Property Management, and has been in Real Estate for 13 years!
As a wife and mom, Tashana works daily to achieve that enviable work/life balance and will let you know when she finds it.

She Is A Specialist

Over the years Tashana has supported her clients through all types of situations (many returning for their next real estate need). She has introduced people to the process of buying or selling their first home, acquainted repeat buyers/sellers with changes in the market, and shared her personal experience helping her dad transition in his later years and put it to good use for others.
Children of aging parents, retirees looking to downsize, families coping with the loss of an elderly loved one each have very specific questions to answer as they transition or help others transition during retirement and beyond.
She obtained special accreditation from the National Association of Realtors to be a Seniors Real Estate Specialist. In addition she was certified through Windermere as a Senior Transitions Certified Agent.

She Is A Connoisseur of Seattle’s Awesome Variety of Home Styles

When asked what their favorite style of home in Seattle would be you hear many different answers from The Tashana Team and Green Lightning: 1900’s Craftsman, Pied-a-Terre overlooking Pike Place, Victorian, Split Levels, ’50’s brick Triplexes and Tashana loves them all.
However, her favorite – just don’t tell the other homes – are NW Contemporary Architecture and Mid-Century Modern.

What Do People Say About Tashana?

Colleen, Maple Leaf

I have worked with Tashana through both the purchase and sale of a home. Most recently (2013) as an out of state seller as I had to re-locate prior to placing my rental property on the market.
Tashana worked tirelessly to ensure that I had the best possible outcome despite several challenges along the way which were unforeseen to both of us. She handled these with ease and ensured excellent communication with me along the way.
Tashana went above and beyond to ensure all facets of the showing and sale were as seamless as possible for me. I would highly recommend her services.

Scott and Denise, Green Lake

As first-time home buyers, we talked to a few agents before meeting Tashana. We were impressed and comfortable with her approach, and encouraged by the fact that she insisted we interview other agents before selecting her. She tirelessly showed us many homes, coaching us along the way about what was important about each property, how it met — or failed to meet — our stated needs, and how to evaluate the neighborhood.
Years later, when we had to leave Seattle, it was time to sell. Tashana was patient and helpful through preparing our house for sale and helping us recover when we had to turn down the first offer after the would-be buyers asked for more and more money back for inspection-related findings.
We have worked with two real estate agents in another state since then, and no one has been as professional, customer-focused and nice to work with as Tashana. I hope we can come back soon so she can help us again!

Paulette and Matt, Capitol Hill

Tashana helped us buy both our current house and a rental property, as well as to sell a condo. When buying, she expertly guided us through the process, making it as easy as possible. When selling, her knowledgeable pricing and excellent staging allowed us to make $30K more than we expected. We highly recommend her.
