Tammy Jo Budzynski
Keller Williams Rivertown
About Tammy Jo

I live my life with the beliefs that if you take care of others, God takes care of you. With much that is given; much is expected. Others come first. Always. There is no exception. People, Animals, Nature, we are all here together. My husband Max and I share our lives with our daughters Addison and Natalie. With two young girls, life is never slow, and we are always on the go! Usually chasing them. We are so excited for the adventure of teaching our daughters all that we hold dear. The character and values that we live by and that I first implemented when I started my business over 18 years ago are now being used as the foundation to build our family. When not chasing children, I love to unwind with feeling the warmth of the sun and getting outside in my flower garden, painting, reading, and even practicing Tae Kwon Do. My father and grandfather were both builders. As the eldest daughter of four, I was always enlisted to help out on construction sites. My dad would say, “Many hands make light work.” So that is what we did. From cleaning up litter in a foot of mud, to laying drain tile, interior painting, or clearing a roof from snow. I was there for it all! I loved it. That was part of my life. I learned the value of work. I graduated from Forest Hills Northern High School and attended Aquinas College, where I earned a degree in Business. I then thought, “Now what do I do?” For me, it was simple. I combined my affinity for homes with my passion for people. A profession in Real Estate offered the perfect blend of both worlds.

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Wayland?
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.

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.

Read more
When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Wayland?
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 Wayland 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 Wayland 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.
Read more
What is the average real estate agent commission for agents in Wayland?
