Toril Schoepfer
Toril Sells Houses Team
About Toril

When Toril Schoepfer's parents named their daughter, they were somehow drawn toward something descriptive, a name that would continuously inspire this young woman to become the achiever she is today. The name "Toril" comes from Norway and means "female warrior" - reflecting a competitive spirit and inner drive that Toril brings to everything she does. Toril grew up in the Lake Tapps area, where she definitely lived up to her name as a key member of the track team throughout high school. At 5'11, Toril not only stood head and shoulders above her teammates, but with her passion to succeed, she helped take her team to the state championships year in and year out. "Working hard and succeeding in sports taught me that giving your very best is truly the most important thing," says Toril, " I learned that is your care enough to always give it your all, the results will take of themselves." Torils name is hardly the only unique thing about her. She has a passion for helping others, especi

About Chad

Mission: To provide a superior level of service to our Clients that will naturally result in future referral business. Through exceptional Customer Service, Ongoing Education, Doing What we Say we’ll Do, and basing our everyday decisions on “The Golden Rule”, we will inherently create lasting relationships that will add to the quality of our lives as well as that of our clients & associates. Personal: I’m a Tacoma native born and raised in the local area and currently live in the Gig Harbor/Key Peninsula area with my wife, Stef, and our two kids. As a youth I attended St. Charles, Bellarmine, Stadium, Curtis, TCC (Associates in Arts & Sciences) and Bates (Associates in Fire Services). I married Stefanie Ord on the beach in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico on November 2nd, 2006 in the company of some great friends and close family! We have a beautiful daughter, Capri Abella Hauer, who was born on November 29th, 2007 and I just can’t get over how amazing she is! Our son, Mason Ryder, was born on March 6th, 2011 and is equally amazing! I have been actively selling Real Estate in the local area for over a decade. Prior to being a licensed Realtor, I worked in the background for my father for many years and have learned a lot from him and his 43 years of experience as a Realtor. When I’m not working I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, reading business and finance books, wakeboarding, kayaking, slalom skiing, working in my yard, spending Sunday mornings at Harbor Christian Center, working out at Westsound CrossFit, and spending time at our vacation homes on Mason Lake & Raft Island. Introduction: I have been around the Real Estate industry my entire life. My father, Al Hauer, began his career as a Realtor in 1969 and retired after 42 years in the business as a top producing agent. I have learned a lot over the years from my father and my own personal experience. I can confidently say that I am very good at what I do and practice what I preach. In addition to owning my own personal residence, I also own multiple rental properties. I strongly believe in continuing education and that there’s always room to grow and improve in all aspects of life. I am confident in the services I provide for my clients and thoroughly enjoy what I do on a day to day FULL-TIME basis. Real Estate is so heavily based on good relationships. I believe my professional and upbeat personality is a key component of my success in transactions. I have created many great relationships with people in the industry and we all have high expectations of one another and know how to get the job done right! I like to think of it as an "All-Star Team", with one goal in mind…our clients ultimate satisfaction! There would be nothing more rewarding to me than to earn the repeated business of you, your family, and your friends! If there is ever anything I can do for you please don’t hesitate to contact me…and ask me about my Client Care Program and how it can help you! Specialization I am a FULL-TIME agent and specialize in representing my clients in the purchases and sales of Residential Real Estate and income producing property within, but not limited to, the cities of Tacoma, University Place, Gig Harbor, Key Peninsula, Steilacoom, Lakewood, Puyallup, Grapeview and Mason Lake.

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Tacoma?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload. Selling a home takes an enormous amount of work, so you need an agent who’s got a plan for prep, pricing, and marketing and who is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the job done.
Read more
How important is it to hire a top real estate agent in Tacoma?
Our data shows that the top 5% of listing agents sell homes for as much as (+9%) more than the average real estate agent. A great agent makes a difference when you buy a house, too: We’ve found that the top 5% of buyer's agents on average save their clients 2.5% more on their home purchase. So, whether you’re in the market to find your dream home or sell your house at a great price, the right agent matters. We encourage you to connect with a top real estate agent if you’re buying or selling a home in Tacoma, WA.
Read more
When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Tacoma?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date. When you start the search for an agent several months before hitting the market, there’s plenty of time to find the best agent, make key renovations, and market your home effectively, all of which are essential steps in selling your home for a great price. You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell in Tacoma to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell in Tacoma is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
