Relocating to Tacoma and buying a house from a distance can feel like a huge undertaking. In this video, creator Marguerite interviews her friend, colleague, and Relocating Buyer Specialist Consuella. Consuella is an expert in helping clients search for and buy homes from hundreds (or even thousands!) of miles away. Here’s how Consuella does it: 

Buying a house from far away is different than buying locally for several reasons, and Consuella knows the best way to approach this for her clients. 

Consuella begins the process by asking her clients important questions. The more conversations she has with her clients up front, the more tailored she will be able to make your home search. You need to have a narrowed down idea of what type of home you want, what qualities it needs to have, what your price point is, and what type of commute you have. Each of these details will help Consuella narrow down the best Pierce County cities and neighborhoods for you. Taking the time to do this in the beginning will make the search process much more efficient, and the whole process will be smoother for you! 

Being based in South Tacoma gives Consuella the flexibility to serve all of Pierce County. This is especially important because many of her clients aren’t sure yet where they want to live, but they may need to be close to Joint Base Lewis-McChord, for example. There are several cities that you could live in with a commute to JBLM, and Consuella loves being close to areas like Central Tacoma, Puyallup, University Place, Lakewood, and also not far from places like Roy, Graham, and Spanaway. South Tacoma is right in the heart of it all, and she can get anywhere she needs to be in a reasonable amount of time. If you’re relocating, you need an agent with geographic range. 

You really can buy a home after touring the home via video! Consuella’s very first transaction was actually a relocation. Her clients were a military family relocating from Virginia, and they wanted to move to Puyallup. They had been corresponding with Consuella, and she found the perfect house in Puyallup for them. She arranged to go tour the house, did a video tour over the phone with her clients, and they bought the house! Consuella has lots of FaceTime conversations with her relocating clients so they can get a sense of what it’s like to be in a home as much as possible. 


Marguerite loves Consuella’s flexibility and energy, and when you’re relocating to Tacoma, you need an agent who is ready to scour the region for the best home for you! Consuella lets her clients know that she is ready to serve you and get you what you want, and it’s her job to do the stressing for you!
