Testimonials for Kornelia Tamm


“My partner and I bought a vacation home in Ghent in May 2018 and were extremely pleased with Kornelia as our buying agent. She was knowledgeable of the area, always responsive and we felt as though she shared a genuine interest in ensuring we found the home we envisioned!”~ Kristen Foster

Kornelia helped us with a house purchase in upstate New York in 2017. She was extremely professional and organized from the onset – sourcing properties that matched our particular criteria, guiding us through viewings and being open and candid about historical properties and the expenses we should expect in buying a colonial style home; to guiding us through the offer process as first time buyers and ensuring we successfully secured our perfect upstate home. In addition to making the buying process seamless and professional she was also delightful company, bringing charisma and charm and in-depth local and historic knowledge about the areas we looked at – qualities which we respected and found lacking in other more transactional brokers. Overall, Kornelia listened to our needs, respected what was important and unimportant in our house search, talked and guided us through the buying process with trust and clarity and helped enable a smooth and successful closing. I would highly recommend Kornelia Tamm.” ~ Olly Smith and Stephen O’Leary

“Knowledgeable and thorough. She understood what we were looking for almost immediately and was very helpful in helping us locate and close on a fantastic property. We were in good hands throughout the process.” ~ Lan Nguyen

After looking for a house for close to a year and undergoing some major disappointments, we switched real estate agents and could not be happier that we chose Kornelia. From our first meeting with her, we trusted that she understood exactly what we wanted and would work as hard as she could to find  it for us. We just purchased our dream home with her help. She is a tough negotiator who demands fairness from the other side, and she is extremely invested in making her clients happy and protecting their interests. She has also given us tons of homeowner advice and great referrals for painters, etc. We can’t recommend her highly enough!” ~ Hannah Tennant-Moore and Wyatt Mason

“We wholeheartedly recommend Kornelia! Her ability to quickly assess our tastes and needs was amazing.  Her honesty and directness helped us efficiently and successfully navigate the house buying process.  She was an incredible advocate for us, from initially alerting us to the property that we would eventually buy, through the negotiating process and beyond.  She has been beyond generous with her time and resources, sharing her love of real estate and the area.” ~ Nina and Matt Hogan

“We strongly recommend Kornelia Tamm, if you are looking for an experienced, honest, kind, hard-working, knowledgeable, imaginative, creative, caring broker to sell your house. Kornelia has been an incredible resource and guide in this process, whose unflagging energy and efforts got us through the process. There are so many instances in which Kornelia saved the day. From the first time we met, we felt that she was the professional we needed to sell our house. She knew exactly what we needed to do to make our house saleable. Kornelia knew exactly how to make our house the best it could be, and the most appealing to buyers. She also provided the contacts to make the work possible, on multiple occasions. From painters to lawyers, we were so fortunate to be able to use Kornelia’s amazing contacts.  Kornelia stayed in touch with us through this pre-sale process, and was an indispensable partner through this work. When the house went on the market, Kornelia worked incredibly hard to spread the news and to get buyers and brokers in to see it. She was unflagging in her support and kindness. At the end of the day, the house sold, but only as a result of Kornelia’s hard work. Selling a house is never easy, but Kornelia Tamm made it as pleasant as possible. We always felt she was on our side, and we believe that her instincts were absolutely spot on, with respect to every call that had to be made through the process. A combination of great real estate sense, expertise, experience and intelligence—along with an amazing heart. Oh yeah—and a great sense of humor. We are very grateful to Kornelia for all of her work for us. ~ April Harris and Kevin Dyer

“Kornelia knows what she is doing. It did not take her much to find us exactly what we needed, in no time. She guided us through the inspection process, contract and the closing without a hitch. Amazingly patient, always available at any time, professional, knowledgeable about real estate and whatever else we needed advice on. We highly recommend her services to everybody who is looking to find a house, somebody who does not want to spend months driving around looking at houses, but who wants to see only what is on the wish list. Kornelia is good at that. Right to the point, no wasting time and a great entertainer. She has valuable opinions and advises against or for without hesitation.  Great broker, exactly what we needed.” ~ Anne and Loring Pratt

“After nearly 30 years, my husband and I decided to sell our home. We fully restored this 1900s home in the Village of Red Hook. We contacted Gary DiMauro Real Estate. We chose the sales associate Kornelia Tamm. She loved everything about the property. Kornelia wasted no time getting to work. She immediately set up photos and advertising. She has one speed: fast. Kornelia’s enthusiasm is something to be seen. Her focus is on you and selling your home. If you are looking to sell your property, I highly recommend you contact Kornelia Tamm. From start to finish, you will have full confidence, to do what has to be done.” ~ Don & Kathy Douris

“Kornelia has been instrumental in finding us exactly what we did not even know we were looking for, on our first trip to upstate New York.  Looking for land to build a family compound , which was our original idea, she suggested to buy a house instead and renovate it to our taste. She guided us with her endless enthusiasm from purchase offer through the various inspections to the closing, and is now helping us find the right people for the renovations. Without her we would still be looking at land. The house is perfect. Her expertise and guidance made it easy for us to make decisions. I anticipate friends joining us in this beautiful area and will surely recommend Kornelia to help them.” ~ Eleanora Kennedy

“Kornelia is a dynamo.  She quickly figured out the sort of house we wanted and sent us interesting listings as soon as they hit the market.  Once we found a place we liked, she set us up with an excellent lawyer and mortgage broker and advocated on our behalf right through the closing.  We could hardly have asked for more in a real estate agent.” ~ Tor Seidler and Joseph Li

“Kornelia helped us purchase our first home this past winter and she was completely on the job. She sent us new listings as soon as they became available that were a good match for what we were looking for. She gave us her honest feedback on whether homes were going to be a good fit for us and priced competitively and she made herself available for questions and home visits practically around the clock. We can’t imagine anyone who would have worked harder to help us find what we want. And most importantly, she wasn’t simply trying to sell us a house but find the perfect fit for who we are and what we need. In the end. she felt more like partner through this process rather than a salesperson. If you are looking to buy or sell a home, Kornelia is your lady!” ~ Julia Shanbrom

“We loved working with Kornelia and couldn’t have imagined working with anyone else. She was efficient, available and trustworthy. Her knowledge of the area and connections to the community were a bonus and a pleasure. She went beyond. Kornelia will be a continued friend and referred to everyone we know.” ~ Jack Nguyen & Peter Makebish

“Buying a house and moving is probably one of the most stressful things you can do in your lifetime so you want to deal with the right people. My wife and I are both retired and our two daughters are on their own so we wanted to move to a more rural and relaxed environment. We had been to a couple of different real estate agencies in the area that we wanted to move to and didn’t care for the pushy overbearing attitude we got. When we walked into Gary DiMauro Real Estate we knew right away that it was a perfect fit. They were patient with us and listened to our needs. We worked directly with Kornelia Tamm and her son Maxim for about 4 months until we found a home that we wanted. We couldn’t be happier with the service that she provided. She would send us listings via e-mail that she thought would suit our needs. Along with listings that we suggested, she made herself available to us at our convenience. We not only received great service we feel that we have a friend in the neighborhood.” ~ Rob & Hannah Eckstein

“We love our new home! After looking for many years, we met Kornelia and found a home after just a few months.  She focused on getting to know us and understanding what we were both looking for. Over the course of a few months, she showed us a number of properties that we liked and some of which we bid on. She was responsive and always on the case. In advance of a day touring homes, she worked closely with us to ensure that our time was well spent by prescreening the majority of the homes. Thank you Kornelia!” ~ Tracy Lynn Gary

“Working with Kornelia helped me to buy a beautiful piece of property. She couldn’t have been more helpful with ideas, referrals and understanding my needs and parameters. She was a ‘tiger Mom’ in educating me so I could make the best decision. I feel fortunate to have her as my broker. Since buying the property, she still keeps helping me!  What a gem!” ~ Deborah Seidman

“We recently closed on a home near Rhinebeck and owe our success to the efforts of Kornelia. She was able to advise us about the relative value of the home and to work quickly with the Seller’s agent to secure a reasonable outcome. Kornelia is very clear and straightforward and does not leave anything to chance. Her extensive knowledge of the market, today and historically, gave us confidence that we were making a sound investment. In addition, she had a wealth of contacts for closing, moving help, etc. that we found very helpful. We were extremely satisfied!  ~ Kathleen Feely & Richard Lehmann

“Kornelia is definitely not a broker for the faint of heart. We first called her assuming we were starting what would be a long process of finding our home upstate. Instantaneously we were inundated with listings as she was figuring out exactly what we were looking for, something which at the time we were not even too clear about. Be prepared, Kornelia will find you your dream home even before you are ready for it. She has a keen sensibility to capture the spirit of what you are looking for. She was always very efficient, professional and direct and made the stressful process of buying a home very fun. By the way she makes an awesome ricotta cheese cake.” ~ Isabelle Philippe & Fernando Acevedo

“My husband and I have bought and sold several properties in and around NYC, so feel confident in saying that Kornelia is extraordinary. She knew exactly what we were looking for and when we found our home she approached the transaction like a true professional. Every real estate transaction has competing interests at play and Kornelia managed all of that with remarkable grace. She is diligent, persistent, honest, helpful, warm and (above all) savvy.  She is also a pleasure to work with — very candid, very straightforward, strategic in her thinking, and with the knowledge and experience to back up her advice. Not to mention, she’s a kind and interesting person with lots to offer beyond real estate. We can’t recommend her highly enough.”  ~ Alexander and Stephanie Doncov
