    Thank you for visiting me online! I am a local expert with a wealth of information about today's real estate marketplace. If you have any questions please do let me know. I am always happy to help!

    Thank you for visiting me online!

    As a mother of 3 my greatest joy comes from finding the perfect home or investment property for each and every client. I am a licensed broker with many years of sales and property management experience. My buyers can be assured that I researched relevant properties including properties that are not currently listed and that I will be with them every step of the way.

    My sellers know that my customized marketing plan will insure them the biggest and best offer possible. My investors take stock in the fact that I specialize in up-to-date knowledge of Fair Housing requirements and have a working knowledge of the rent and eviction control ordinances which govern San Francisco and many East Bay cities. The acquisition and identification of marketable properties, generation and presentation of feasibility studies and the negotiation of purchase price and tenant leases are areas of particular interest.

    I look forward to serving you!

    It you want and need an advocate on your side to find and get you into the home you want in the East Bay, Tia is for you. Tia has now gotten us into two homes that we couldn't have purchased without her tireless efforts. Bay Area real estate requires more than just connecting the dots, it requires ingenuity and determination, and Tia is willing to do what it takes to make a home sale happen for you. If you are selling, she also knows how to get you the absolute highest value for your home. We have referred her to multiple friends who have been thrilled with her. Finally, Tia is just an awesome person and makes me want to get into another real estate transaction just to be able to hang out with her more!

    If you want to talk about an absolute waste, Tia's the one. My first contact with her was Aug 24th, one new years eve 2020 i fired her. I had to comm with the buyers agent MYSELF from thanksgiving until xmas because Tia disappeared off the face of the earth. Absolutely unprofessional at her job. When i fired her, she waived a ONE YEAR listing agreement when she told me it was 90 days in the beginning. Then she blackmails my new selling agent for a cut of her commission as a "referral fee". PLEASE STAY AWAY FROM HER! SHE WILL SWINDLE YOU! She prays on inexperienced sellers and buyers and manipulates them. Make sure you read EVERYTHING as she could cause you to lose your home. I lost income from tenants i had i my place. AFTER we signed she said she cant list as "showing" until theyre evicted.
    Response from Tia
    Your frustration is understandable when excellent marketing nets a great offer that falls through. Unfortunately, the Buyer lost his job due to Covid which is something none of us can control. I strive to communicate all terms and agreements thoroughly and work with clients of all experience levels from first-time homebuyers to seasoned investors. As a former Oakland landlord, I would never recommend evicting tenants as Measure EE forbids forced evictions. I wish you all the best with your new agent and am working with her to get your home sold as soon as possible.

    This is the 2nd time I have worked with Tia, I didn't hesitate to pick up the phone when I saw a property and wanted to view it as soon as possible. Tia made every step of the process simple and had time for all my questions. It was a delight to work with her.
    trish gave Tia 5 stars out of 5
    Tia always had time for my calls and questions. Anytime I wanted to find out about a property she got back to me right away. Her counsel in respect to making the correct offer that I was comfortable with was invaluable. She was absolutely knowledgeable about the local properties and I cannot recommend her more highly. I am so happy with the property that I just closed on and cannot imagine navigating this sometime trying marketplace without her patience, understanding and gentle guidance.

    Tia was amazing. She held our hand when we needed it, calmed us down when we were frustrated, and was generally just an awesome person to work with. We were first time home buyers and Tia conveyed a lot of info to us about the process and expectations. And then she just made it happen. Will definitely refer her to friends in the future. Thanks Tia!

    Angelina gave Tia 5 stars out of 5
    For starters, as a married couple, both Angelina and I-Mike Vukman count ourselves truly blessed that we accidentally stumbled upon Tia. Due to all of Tia's qualities listed above, Angelina and I were able to purchase our dream home in a relatively short period of time and with a minimal amount of stress. In addition, Tia also helped us successfully manage the difficult short-sale process for a separate piece of property. To underscore what a gem Tia is, when my extended family immediately met Tia for the first time, they immediately knew that she was the right person for the job as she quickly demonstrated her endearing personal and professional attributes. We consider Tia to be a friend and we are more than happy to recommend her to any of our friends, colleagues, or family members. Additionally, we love the modern business model that Zip Realty uses through the installation of a Zip Realty application to a smart phone. This, combined with Tia's tenacity, dramatically helped to streamline out home purchasing process. We will always feel indebted to Tia while we live in our new home. Many thanks to Tia and the entire Zip Realty team. Thank you, Mike Vukman and Angelina Vergara

    Tia was amazing. Words can't express how wonderful she is.I am a 30 years single person and a first time home buyers .Tia took her time explaining the whole home buying process too me .She made sure I stayed in my budget and she knew what was best for me. I moved in my new house and days later my hot water heater went out . My first thought was it's my house and my problem. However, I called Tia she explain I had the home warranty and she contact the seller. Two days later I receive a new hot water at no extra charge . Thanks Tia for Everything .

    We are so happy we chose Tia to be our real estate agent. She would reply immediately when we searched and requested viewings on properties and always made us feel like we were her top priority. It took a little over a month to view more than a dozen properties, get into contract on one we liked and close on our first home! We would definitely recommend her for people who are very serious about buying a home and who want to move quickly. Five Stars!

    After having a horrible experience with another agent, Tia came to the rescue. She was referred to us thru our broker, she knows the bay area and went above our expectations. Knows the business very well and was able to help us stay with in our budget! Looking forward to referring her to our friends and relatives. :-)

    Ms. Hunnicutt did not represent us to the best of her abilities. There were numerous issues with our transaction. Ms. Hunnicutt offered $50,000 more on a bid than we requested, leaving us to pay this sum over our original requested offer or lose the house altogether. She never admitted her error, but the emails reveal that we asked for a much different amount than the offer she wrote on our behalf. Further, she did not review or advise us on our loan documentation. She was not present during the document signing process nor did she review the closing documents that were in violation of RESPA. Ms. Hunnicutt misrepresented us by completing offer letters incorrectly and recommended an unethical inspector and contractor for our 203k loan. Both the inspector and the contractor were from the same company. The loan officer she recommended to us from LandHome Financial completed our final loan documents incorrectly, and Ms. Hunnicutt and the LandHome Financial representative were then unresponsive until the documents were moved into escrow and could not be altered. Following numerous phone calls, emails, and voice mails, we received little response. When Ms. Hunnicutt finally responded, she attempted to assuage our dissatisfaction and frustration by offering $1,000 to compensate us, per her email. In conclusion, Ms. Hunnicutt, as a representative of ZipRealty, acted unethically and did not represent our best interests. We would not recommend her or your service to anyone in the future. As first-time home buyers, it was horrific navigating this process with false/no representation, and we hope no one has to go through what we went through with ZipRealty.

    It was a pleasure seeing you again! I'm glad you are happy with your home and how much equity you have earned and view the transaction differently than reported here. Please consider updating your review when you have a moment. Thank you!!

    Tia was absolutely great all around. Excellent at answering all my myriad of questions, great at prompt and clear communication, very patient, worked very hard, and knowledgeable. Also fun and incredibly sweet. I could go on and on but I'll just say I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

    Tia went above and beyond to assist us with the closing. She treated our under 200 thousand mortgage just like it was a million dollar closing!! We look forward to working with Tia in the future.

    Tia was great. She was there when I needed her, got expedient responses from her when I posed questions or comments -- she was on top of everything, but yet she wasn't in my face which I feel is a problem with a lot of agents. Actually, I've never had that problem w/a Zip agent.

    Tia was amazing. She was very responsive and even took us to see places on Thanksgiving weekend. We work long hours during the week, and she always made herself available on the weekends for us. She also dealt with a very difficult and unresponsive seller. I can honestly say, that if it weren't for Tia, we probably would not have gotten our house.

    Tia did not seem to have done her homework before we went to view properties. Was never proactive during the initial search process. Was not helpful when we had problems with closing Escrow. Was uninformed about basic procedures such as Quitclaims etc . Was not responsive when I asked her for help.

    Matthew gave Tia 5 stars out of 5
    Tia is the world's greatest realtor -- no kidding!! This transaction was extremely complicated due to the condition of the home and squatter's living in one of the units. Tia was able to get results where no other realtor could. Without her help and her positive upbeat I have a strategy for that attitude, we'd still be standing on the curb. We highly recommend Tia to anyone wanting to purchase a home, especially foreclosures or REOs. She is a complete expert, and has a very high level of integrity and honestly. Tia spent many hours working on our purchase and we would not be new homeowners now without her. We are very grateful to Tia and ZipRealty. Thank you again.

    OMG! Which stands for Overly Magnificent Go Getter. This lady has done the ultimate for me that I could not possible believe what she has done for me. Asa first time home buyer, she has brought me hope and encouragement like never before for buying a home. When she said just let me know, what you want, when, where, TIA DID IT! When Tia said let's do it it, she meant that! This lady takes care of business. She will get the job done and I mean that. I believe this home was one day on the market and once I said I wanted the home, the next day Tia called me and said it's yours. WOW...AMAZING! and... of course the process starts. Tremndous Job Well Done!!!!
