Read what clients have to say about working with Tarasa Hurley Realty.

My husband and I decided to move to a larger house when we found out we were expecting our first child. Tarasa made shopping for a new house and selling our old one a breeze during a particularly hectic time in our lives. She was really patient with us showing after showing as we took our time finding the perfect house and always available to answer all of the questions we had. After a few false starts, we finally found the perfect home for us. Tarasa was able to get us a great deal and close the deal quickly. On the selling end, Tarasa made the whole process painless. Her marketing was absolutely flawless and after 2 days on the market we had 7 fantastic offers in hand for our old home. She is definitely the person you want on your side in a negotiation on both the buyer and seller side. We are so grateful to have found Tarasa and thrilled with the perfect home she helped us buy!

Tarasa was an absolute pleasure to work with. This was our first time selling a home and Tarasa seamlessly guided and advised us through the entire process, from the initial deliberations over whether to sell or rent our home, to listing, showing, and closing. She was patient, cheerful, very responsive, and really helped make our cross-country move stress free. We felt very well looked after. The whole process was quick and this was thanks to Tarasa. I would enthusiastically recommend her in a heartbeat.

Now that the dust has finally settled from closing and moving, I can take a breath and share our experience dealing with Tarasa. It has been a long process, we looked at our first house in the Fall of 2020. We made multiple offers where we didn't win, because someone else made an insane offer. We had two sellers pull out within a few days of closing. And finally, we found the right home.

Through it all, Tarasa was a shoulder to cry on, a cheer leader and ultimately, became a friend. She offered great insight into properties, guided us away from duds, kept our head on straight when bidding wars started and helped match us with a lender who guided us through the mortgage maze.

I can say Tarasa went above and beyond what I've experienced with other realtors I've dealt with and know. She was pleasant and upbeat when things got tough and kept us on track. I would recommend her highly and have already referred others to work with her. If you're buying or selling, you really want to get with her, because you'll actually feel good when everything is said and done.

Our experience of selling our home for the past 23 years was a difficult decision to make but we were ready to downsize. Tarasa Hurley made the experience as stress free as possible. She was available for a consult and reassurance. Tarasa knowledge of the market prices and her use of the internet and professional pictures taken of our home was outstanding. Our family saw the pictures of our home on the website and loved the pictures. She is very knowledgeable of the area and fair prices. We would highly recommend her and will definitely use her again.

Tarasa was the absolute best to work with! She made herself available to us at all hours of the day and always did it with a smile. She had the best attitude throughout our entire home buying journey and helped land us our perfect home. Could not recommend her and her team more!
Molly Keam
Working with Tarasa has been an absolute delight! She is a very skilled and hard working person. I can't believe how lucky I was to find her as a first-time homebuyer.

I have been living in my house built in 1897 for just over a year now, and I have yet to experience any issues whatsoever. I have Tarasa to thank for that. During closing, she made sure all of the major issues were fixed (including some of the less obvious ones). I also got a great price on my house in a very strong seller's market.

Tarasa was able to build a strong working relationship with the current homeowner which helped me to stand out above the competition and land my dream home. Thank you, Tarasa!

Tarasa was fantastic to work with! As first time home buyers, she made us feel so comfortable with the entire process from start to finish. We were on a short timeline for buying and she helped us find the perfect house for the right price! We can't say enough good things about her!
Alex Melendez
We wanted a realtor who knew the market and how to help us find the best home, and make the best offer, and Tarasa did that and more! She anticipated our needs, answered all of our questions without hesitation and went to bat for us any time we needed anything! A great realtor makes the whole home-buying process easy, and Tarasa is the best!
Chris Lucia
In my search for a Realtor it was important to find a realtor that worked and knew the Sewickley market, understood our needs and would find us the perfect home. After interviewing several realtors I chose Tarasa Hurley as she was responsive, professional and very knowledgeable about the market. Tarasa was always pleasant, courtesy and quickly responded to my requests.
She always goes above and beyond - since I was new to the area and did not live here she attended my housing inspection and faced timed me. When I asked her to recommend a few contractors she prepared a detailed list of reputable contractors that are now doing work for me. She has not disappointed me with her recommendations. Tarasa’s customer service is excellent and made my experience pleasant. The best advice I could give anyone is to “hire” Tarasa Hurley as your Realtor as she will take very good care of you throughout the process.

As a first time home buyer Tarasa is the agent you want! Tarasa is working for you the " buyer" she always has your best interest as a first priority. Her years of experience in this industry is amazing, she can anticipate almost any issue that could present itself. Ongoing communication is key between the buyer and their agent. Tarrasa's excels at this - she is always when indicated calling, texting and emailing the plan, the paperwork and ones to do's. Tarasa realizes as a first time buyer its all foreign and overwhelming. She and her team truly take the burden off you and work collaboratively to move it all along. I was very fortunate Tarrasa's efficiency I closed in less than 30 days. Tarrasa's network of resources and contacts for any thing needed once you move in also really helped. I am new to the area I purchased and had no idea who to contact for painting, handy man work etc. Tarasa is a go getter and I will forever be grateful for her time and talent with me. I am referring to friends looking to buy as they saw the smooth transition and trusted relationship I have with Tarasa. I am 29 years old and have made a true connection with Tarrasa and her team and as I grow professionally and personally moving along my life path, I have complete confidence this is only the beginning where I started and what I can achieve in the home buying industry.

I've dealt with quite a few realtors over the past couple of years. As far as expectations Tarasa is now the gold standard. She responds quickly and is very knowledgeable with her answers. She helped us take care of repairs prior to moving in and without her the entire process would have looked completely different. If I plan on selling / purchasing a home in the future there is no one else I would rather go with.

We were fortunate to have Michelle Rabe as our realtor when we were selling two houses and buying a house (combining households). She was always available to answers texts or calls. She came to our homes a number of times to help choose paint colors and other upgrades as we prepared to sell. She made a stressful time much less stressful. Michelle is just a nice person who always took the time to listen to us, to explain, to offer advice. It felt like we were working with a friend. She's an honest, down to earth caring person who I truly felt had our best interests at heart during the entire process. We couldn't have asked for a better realtor!
Jacqui Stenglin
Tarasa was an excellent agent to work with. From the moment I met her online, to when we met in person, she was extremely professional. She guided me throughout the process, from scouting the best houses for my family needs and to getting approved for a mortgage; I never felt pressured into any decision and she was always a great listener, helping me for any questions with a great amount of patience. I'd highly recommend working with her to find the best place to live.
Angelo Mariano
Tarasa was simply the best. We chose her out of several other agents because she was the most professional, upbeat and confident. We needed an agent that would manage the sell of our house not just list it and take a few pictures. It was a unique situation as we lived in Europe and would not be able to get the house ready for listing. Tarasa managed everything for us and kept us informed every step of the way. She even did some of the work herself! We really do not think there are many other agents that would have done the same. Once our home was listed, the marketing Tarasa did was awesome. We would be surfing the internet at our home in Europe and her ad would show up on websites! Wow, that was amazing. There is no doubt that because of her hard work and dedication our house sold very quickly . We could not be any happier that we had Tarasa as our agent….you will too!
Jennifer Simpson
First home buyer and can’t say enough good things about Tarasa. Tarasa was very professional, informative, and went the extra mile for me. She made sure I understood everything during the buying process and what I could expect. Tarasa is awesome to work with and you won’t be disappointed. I highly recommend making her your agent!
Steven Paukovics
As a mortgage loan officer with Ameriserv Financial Bank, I have worked closely with Tarasa and many of her clients to secure financing for the purchase of residential homes. In every case, I have found Tarasa to be effervescent to work with as well as enthusiastic about finding the perfect home for her clients. If you're reading this, be assured that Tarasa will get the job done, and you will be pleased.
Glenn St Mars
Tarasa was nothing short of amazing. She helped us navigate the home buying process with such ease. She is thorough and has attention to detail. She was flexible around our work hours and even provided us with additional contacts and resources when requested. We will be using Tarasa for all of our future real estate transactions in the Pittsburgh area.
Angela Nikitas
Tarasa was an absolute pleasure to work with. Not only did she sell our home for an amazing price, but she truly went above and beyond to make sure the whole process was stress free and smooth. This is not a small feet considering we had 98 showings over the span of 3 days! We could not recommend a more professional and personable real estate agent. You absolutely will not regret entrusting her with you real estate needs!
A Jelicks
Tarasa was a pleasure to work with. We would still be looking for the perfect house if it wasn’t for her persistence to take a look at our new house. She was always super quick to answer any questions that we had along the way and was with us every step of the process. I would highly recommend using Tarasa when you need to sell or buy a house.
Lauren Borres
Tarasa is everything that you could want from a realtor and more. She was knowledgeable, personable, honest, helpful, and maintained a contagiously positive attitude throughout the process - even in a difficult market for buyers. As a buyer I can honestly say that we would not have found our home if not for her keen eye for what we like, and her helpful encouragement to view the property. As a seller, she not only guided us through the selling process, but she also secured a winning offer that was significantly over asking with no contingencies and all inspections waived. For anybody looking for a realtor, you won’t find anyone more hard working and pleasant to work with than Tarasa.
Tony Borres
I can't say enough about Tarasa. She's very professional, knowledgeable, and responsive. She is extremely patient, kind, and cares about the people she works with. She really goes above and beyond in all aspects. She's not only the best realtor in my opinion but, just an amazing person all around. Whenever I need a realtor in the future or need to recommend one to someone else it would definitely be Tarasa.
Steve Barringer
Tarasa was so friendly, helpful and flexible for our first time home buying experience. We are so glad to have chosen her to help us on this journey.
Kendra Hill
Tarasa is very professional in her dealings. She is super responsive when it comes to communication. I am a very demanding client and would usually text her all hours of the day but she would always respond within minutes. She was always very helpful and would show me properties in sometime less than a few hours notice. She understands the market pulse very well and always coming up with creative ideas to help close deals.
Rajeev
If you are buying/selling a home and you don’t use Tarasa, you are missing out. She was incredible to work with and clearly loves what she does. Tarasa’s personality is only outmatched by her responsiveness. She is truly wonderful!
Renee Shiraishi
Working with Tarasa was such a blessing. Shs huge help to my family as we moved cross country. Tarasa really took the time to listen to what was actually important to me and pursed the leads that fit our family. She went above and beyond to make the transition easier and handled so many of the details, so I could focus on the family and the move while we got settled.
Always quick to respond, patient, and honest. She really advocated for us, and never put pressure on us. I would reccomend her to family and friends, and will continue to work with her in the future.
Kelsey Seibert
I just got done working with her in finding my first home. She was really great to work with. I feel like she actually cares about her clients unlike other realtors who try to push you to get a house real fast. I would definitely go to her again. Thank you so much Tarasa!
Jeremy Bolden
Tarasa sold us our home in Beechview and was AMAZING. We were moving from the Philly area and had lived in Wexford previously. We knew what we wanted, just didn't know where to find it. Tarasa actually listened to what we said, and found some homes for us to look at. My husband was out here to begin his new job and was able to see the homes first. For this house, I get a call from him asking me to come to Pittsburgh the next evening after the kids were out of school so we could see the house he fell in love with. Sure enough, it was our home. Tarasa put through our offer and had everything ready for us when we needed it. The best part... We were able to move in and be settled before Christmas! She was punctual, kind, easy to talk to, and professional. If we are ever in need of a new home again, I will be using her. Since that isn't likely... I am recommending her to YOU!
Chris & Kimba Huth
Very kindly person, and always ready to help and to answer at different question; advanced service (I say Tarasa provide a "Fresh-Young" service characterized by use of internet and social media)
Gian Luca Panzavolta
Super awesome! Nice, quick, and kind. I could not find anything by myself and she found me a place quick.
