Cape Cod Equal Housing


"Steve and I met the Schiffmanns when we first started looking to buy on the Cape twelve years ago. We didn't end up buying the perfect house for another six years, yet Jean and the other members of her team never gave up on us. She was just as positive and patient at the end of our search as she was at the beginning. And then five years later when we decided that we needed to sell the perfect house to move closer to our kids, we turned to Jean again. 2010 was a difficult time to sell a house but Jean's professionalism, perserverance and her open houses, produced a buyer. However, we were in California on vacation visiting the kids when she called and said that she had an offer. Since we were not due to return to Barnstable for another month, she successfully guided the offer and contract process long distance. Due to her diligence, this year, we will be hosting our kids and grandkids to Easter brunch in our new California home."

We selected Tara because she had successfully sold homes in our area, and came highly recommended. We wanted to sell our home quickly and we needed someone trustworthy and aggressive.  Tara developed a comprehensive marketing plan including open houses, broker tours, advertising and 50 showings. She prepared extensive comp packages and helped us price the property to get maximum value while attracting qualified buyers. She made key staging suggestions and had extensive photographs online. In the end, the proof is in the pudding.  Tara sold our house in 120 days.

"Jean is the type of realtor that you want working with you when either selling or buying your home. We had just relocated to the Cape with a clear understanding of what we wanted in a home and location. Jean listened to us and within a few hours of our meeting, we were looking over listings that fit our needs. We knew we were in good hands because not only did she know us, she was well versed in the 6A area.  The home we eventually purchased was actually the first home that Jean showed us."

Jean Schiffmann was the first realtor I contacted many years ago. With her excellent knowledge of Antique Capes, found two absolutely beautiful houses for me. Personalized. professional service always.

We highly recommend Tara Schiffmann-Brown and Bayview Real Estate. Tara was professional and tenacious in supporting us in our search for the right property for our family. She invested time researching more than just the home, and followed up on every detail insuring that she closed the loop on any questions. She was thorough and patient as we pondered our options, giving us enough space as needed and was readily available and highly responsive to our needs.    She is an agent that is detail oriented, professional and knowledgable about the market and the properties she represents.

I had been looking for a suitable property for my son in the Barnstable village area for some time. The thought of having a home large enough for he and friends to share, have grounds suitable for growing vegetables, herbs and flowers, and raise some chickens, something like a mini farm would be wonderful! I found the perfect property with Jean's help, but it was in disaray and priced considerably higher than we wished to pay. We kept returning and Jean was considerate and caring in her attitude. She encouraged us to hang in there and persist. The property became a short sale and this added a considerable amount of time and tedious work with the owners and the bank. Jean was relentless. She continued to show the property to other buyers and resubmitted our offer three times. Ultimately, after months of relentless work on Jean's part, we were able to purchase the home. We are in the process of renovating it and thanks to Jean's professionalism and perseverence, we are now the proud owners of a beautiful old home and barn. None of this would have been possible without Jean's help.
