Tama joined Colorado Landmark and the DRF Team in 2020, bringing with her a wealth of knowledge and hands-on experience in creative design, staging, home renovation and investment property purchase and management.
Raised in the Northern Chicago Suburbs, Tama was first introduced to Colorado as a child on family road trips to see the West. She was immediately drawn to the beauty of the mountains and the friendly people she met. After graduating from University of Illinois, Chicago, Summa Cum Laude, she went on to work as an Occupational Therapist in Tucson, Arizona. She specialized in working with older adults and modifying homes for safety and aging in place. This experience gave her insight into the ways homes function to support individuals as they transition through various stages of life. This understanding deepened over the years as she learned how to optimally design homes to support the function of young and growing families.
Tama met her husband Wade while working in Tucson, Arizona. In 2004, upon completion of Wade’s residency in Pediatrics, they moved to Colorado, joining family and friends in the Boulder area. Now with five children, they have made a lasting home and continue to appreciate the outdoor blessings and active lifestyle we in Colorado are so fortunate to enjoy.
While raising a family, Tama developed a passion for design and real estate which lead her to launch and run a successful Interior Design and Staging business from the ground up. Over the past seven years, she has worked with leading realtors in the area, helping homeowners prepare and showcase their homes to best advantage. Additionally, she partnered with local house-flippers to transform aging properties into contemporary gems with high-end appeal and rewarding returns.
With service and integrity as her guiding principles, Tama brings a unique blend of experience and skills to the table. Buying or selling a home can be a complex, and at times, a daunting endeavor. Tama prides herself on attention to detail and careful management of the real estate process. These skills, along with her experience as a designer, stager, and rental property owner, give her the know-how and insight to help clients navigate seamlessly through real estate transactions from start to finish.
Whether looking for the perfect new home or preparing a current home for optimal sale, Tama brings a creative touch and the secret sauce needed to prepare your home and insure that your experience is a rewarding success.
