Buying, building or selling? Local experience matters

If you’re buying or selling a home on Whidbey Island, you deserve local expertise

Tina is a lifesaver. She truly loves what she does and it shows – she doesn’t care if you’re searching for the perfect 50k empty lot, or trying to sell your multi-million-dollar home. They’re all the same to her. We just closed on our home with her and are coming from across the country … and she made the entire process a breeze.

While it’s often said that there’s no substitute for experience, what might be more accurate in real estate is there’s no substitute for LOCAL experience.

It’s a message that rings true for life-long Whidbey Island resident Tina Wieldraayer-Provoncha (Tina Provoncha), a realtor who continues to make her home here with her two daughters.

“I love Whidbey. To me, it’s an ideal place to live and raise a family – it’s a safe, community-minded island,” Tina says.

Sharing with clients her extensive knowledge of the community, Tina provides the information you need to choose the home that’s right for your family.

“Growing up here, I know this island, I know the neighborhoods, the local real estate industry, and I know the builders,” she says.

“It’s important to me that I give each of my clients incredible service, and treat them as they’re my only, so I enlisted the help of a licensed assistant, turned lead agent, Maddy Pope-Martinez, and have welcomed another assistant/transaction coordinator for the both of us, Germaine Lee.” The trio are The Move Whidbey Team, at Windermere Real Estate/Whidbey Island.

Deep roots bring deep connections

Not only did Tina grow up on the island, she also grew up in and around the construction industry. She’s built and renovated her own homes and has partnered with award-winning Whidbey builder Waldron Construction on several unique spec home projects.

The result is unique insight and connections with the local home building and renovation community. If you have questions about building, design, permitting, repairs, remodeling or other essentials, she’ll find the answers, or connect you quickly with the people who can!

For sellers, that in-depth knowledge and experience is also put to good use in knowing what and how to easily prepare your home for sale and achieve the greatest impact.

“I’m very fortunate to have such incredible connections with the talented people I do. I like knowing that, when my clients come to me seeking a specific tradesperson, I can hand them a number or make a call for them and know they’ll be taken care of. There’s never a project or problem that I can’t handle quickly, and in this market that can be a challenge.

“I love people, I love homes and I love the whole buying, selling and building process, and that has brought me clients for life, who value a personalized approach built on knowledge and experience,” Tina says. “It can be stressful for clients, so at the end of the day, when they’re happy with their experience with me, it’s so rewarding.”

It’s a philosophy that resonates with clients.

Tina is great at what she does. She’s been our realtor for the last two houses we’ve bought and was very knowledgeable and patient with all our questions, walking us through the buying and selling process. She worked day and night to make sure we could be in the house on the day we needed to, and sold our house for exactly what we wanted. Always in our corner, and made sure that our home was presented in the best possible way. We could have not asked for anybody better.
