Stories of Success


"Amazing REALTOR!"

She was on target every step of the process from when to list our home, price etc. Her marketing efforts not only showcased our home in a way that captured its best features, it created a bidding war which enabled us to accept an offer within three days, for a higher price than we were asking, a quick closing and the ability to rent back for three months. We can't recommend her more highly!

- Katie C.


"A Stellar, Ethical, and Hard Working Agent."

We interviewed 3 Real estate agents prior to listing our home. Tanya clearly knows the Rockwood neighborhood, listened carefully to our ideas and added wise counsel that helped us make better decisions. Tanya has a very talented team of experts; including a photographer, stager and closing agent. We were pleased to see a beautiful tri-fold pamphlet, professional video, and extensive networking, resulting in a quick and pleasant sale experience.

"I Would Recommend Her to Anyone Looking for an Agent Who Knows What She’s Doing."

We have worked with several Realtor  in Spokane over the years and Tanya was by FAR the most professional and effective. I first contacted her months before I was ready to start the process of selling my home and she followed up with me periodically without being pushy. When it was time to sell, we did not live in Spokane and she handled the entire process remotely (a skill that comes in handy now that “remote” is recommended because of COVID whether you are in Spokane or not!). She remained calm and reassuring when we encountered “speed bumps” with the buyers. I would recommend her to anyone looking for an agent who knows what she’s doing.

"You Will Not Be Disappointed With the Service She Provides."

Buying a home can be a stressful experience, and with bad representation can be an absolute awful experience depending on the challenges presented during the process. I was presented with a seller who had unreasonable expectations, and was failing to preform numerous contractural obligations. To make it more complicated I was out of the area for the majority of the process and had to rely on Tanya to be my eyes which were critical given certain aspects of the property. Tanya proved herself to be patient, respectful, observant, knowledgeable, trustworthy, and above all capable. You can see what people are made of when faced with adversity, and Tanya was put to the test during this transaction.

- Bryce L.  


"She Delivered on Every Keep Point We Needed!!"

We approached Tanya to sell our home based on her incredible videos and marketing presence. The housing market started approaching an unknown area with softening sales prices and much higher interest rates. As concerned sellers, she calmed our fears and got us several offers over asking in the first day or so on the market. We feel that her marketing made the difference to get buyers anxiously wanting to tour the home before it even hit the market. We can’t thank her enough for her consistent communication and professionalism.

- Ryan P.  


"We Are So Grateful for Our New Life in Our New Home!"

Tanya went over and above to meet our real estate needs. She balanced the very opposites wants of my husband and I with ease, made our limited budget work, was available at the drop of a hat (including showing us a house last minute on Christmas Eve!!), and was incredibly knowledgeable about the current market and trends. Let me just say, she bent over backwards for our family. She worked so hard to find us our perfect home, and I truly believe we would not be homeowners right now if it wasn’t for her diligence, knowledge, and work ethic. She is extremely goal oriented, loves what she does, and makes what can be a stressful process so much fun! We can’t say enough thank yous to Tanya for everything she has done for our family!

- Larissa G.


"Highly Recommend if You Want a Trustworthy, Positive, Flawless Home Buying Experience!"

Our experience in working with Tanya couldn't have been any better, even though many had warned us of problems that may arise when working with a friend. Not only was she professional, punctual, and patient with us as new homebuyers, Tanya went above and beyond to get our closing done early, which allowed us to avoid another rent payment at our previous home. Tanya brings with her a wealth of knowledge in the real estate industry and the Spokane market. She is backed by a team of lenders who will look at for your best interests as well.

- Jennifer S.  


"We Have Since Recommended Her to Perspective Buyers and Will Continue to Do So in the Future."

My wife and I met Tanya, who was representing the seller of a home that we were initially interested in when we were considering moving to Spokane.We did not get that home but we were so impressed by Tanya that when we did move we contacted her and asked her to be our agent. How happy we were, not only because of here gracious personality but her professionalism and understanding of the south hill market.

- Fred D.  


"She is a Stand Out in Her Profession..."

My previous trials buying and selling homes was over-the-top stressful. My experience with Tanya Starkel erased all the negative feelings I had developed over the years. I had 2 prior failed attempts at selling my home earlier this year. I hired this ROCK STAR and she sold my house prior to even putting it on the market. The whole process took 3 weeks and was seamless for me. She is truly skilled at buying and selling real estate and I couldn’t be happier. Her communication style and ethical approach spoke volumes to me and my friends who watched her work. She is committed to getting the job done and her skills at customer service and the art of negotiation are unmatched. In all honesty, I never gave this occupation much credit until I met Tanya. She is a stand out in her profession, one which I didn’t realize could be so worthy of notice and respect.

- Joanna P.  


"Thanks for Everything!"

My family worked with Tanya for seven months - in that time we found a home to purchase, then sold our old home. In the current home market, it’s so important to be quick with communication and available to tour a home quickly and Tanya did an awesome job with that. We also loved that a percentage of her commission went to the local non-profit of our choice.

- Brittanie B.  


"We Recommend Her Highly!"

We found Tanya purely by accident, she just happened to be the listing agent for a house that we wanted to see. We didn't buy that house, but after meeting her, we knew that Tanya was the perfect agent to help us with our search for a new home in Spokane. Her "attention to detail" in every aspect of our search has exceeded our expectations. She is professional, organized, and amazing at communicating with us!

- Judy P.  


"Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value."

That is Tanya in a nutshell! She works so hard to get your house sold! From start to finish, your home, no matter what caliber, SELLS! She responds, she is positive and confident, and your marketing and pricing is spot on for your home. You will always win with Tanya and team!

- Haley M.



"From Day One She Has Been Professional, Attentive and Very Knowledgeable."

Tanya was recommended to us by a colleague at my husbands work. She guided us through the selling process and assisted with staging our home and as a result we sold our home in less than a week on the market! Tanya has also been incredibly kind and just a pleasure to work with.

We are now searching for our dream home and she continues to assist and provide great service. We couldn’t have better things to say about Tanya - If are looking to sell or buy, she is the best we have worked with in Spokane.

- Katie A.



"Tanya Was an Amazing REALTOR to Work With."

The Spokane housing market is super competitive and she worked extremely hard to help give me the edge needed to close on a house that I could afford in an area that I love. She was extremely friendly, answered all of my questions, and gave me honest information about the houses I was interested in. Her schedule was always flexible and we often saw houses as soon as they were put on the market.  She maintained excellent communication with me throughout the months spent house-hunting and I felt like everything was addressed in a very timely fashion. She coordinated seamlessly with the other realtors and lenders involved in my successfully buying a home and made the paperwork part of the process stress free. I highly recommend that anyone looking for a home in Spokane to contact Avenue Stone Real Estate: they will make the process of finding and buying a home as painless as it can be in Spokane! I can’t recommend them enough!

-Sarah N. 


"Most Hard Working REALTOR!"

There’s others we have tried and she’s the only one that worked hard and wasn’t trying to sell it quickly just to sell. She listens to her clients and works together with us as a team. If you’re looking for a trust worthy, hard working, and respectful this is the realtor you need. Thank you, Tanya!

- Victor B.  


"More Than 5 Stars!!"

Tanya and her team were very responsive, organized and honest when helping us find our new home. Tanya is very knowledgeable about the different neighborhoods and developments around greater Spokane, she has been a great resource! We were living out of town as we were looking for our next home, she was patient and went above and beyond to help us. She toured homes for us, got quick answers to all of our questions, and also used facetime to provide virtual interactive walkthroughs. We never felt pressure to make an offer or that we were taking too much of her time. Tanya earns your trust and is fun to work with. She used some great strategies to help us negotiate the best offer for our new home.

- Jennifer M.  


"Exceptional Service Every. Single. Time."

Tanya's passion for and knowledge of real estate is so impressive that there is no other option besides going with her for all your real estate needs. We currently use Tanya for finding more investment properties which include rental properties and fixer uppers. She is also currently helping us prepare our personal home for the market as well as finding land for us to build our dream home.

- Raena S.  


"She Continues to Impress Us on Every Home We Work with Her on On."

We would, will, and do recommend her to anyone we know looking for an agent. We came across Tanya in an interesting way as she was the listing agent of a home we were interested in and not our agent. We ended up not buying the home she was listing, but an impression was left. Following our eventual purchase of a home and move to Spokane, we reached out to Tanya and "interviewed" her for assistance with our acquisition of investment properties. Her knowledge of construction types, finish qualities, and Spokane neighborhoods was impressed us, and we have been with her ever sense. 

- Royal M.  


"I Would Highly Recommend if You Are Looking to Sell or Buy a Home."

My husband and I chose Avenue Stone Real Estate to sell our home in Spokane. I really appreciated Tanya's attention to details in communicating what was to be expected as well as what we needed to do, step by step, to prepare our home for staging, marketing, and selling it. It was a lot of work, but I felt that everything Tanya explained to us to do is what facilitated its sale in a week.

- Nancy C.  


"She Was Top of Her Class!"

Tanya did an amazing job selling my home. From her help with staging analysis, incredible video tour of the property, and photo shoot, to her drive to be sure potential clients saw the house and finally close the deal! She had the professionalism, knowledge of the market, and commitment to get the job done! High-end properties can be a challenge and she stepped up and exceeded expectations on every level. I would highly recommend her to others."

- Kathryn M.


"Thanks for Everything."

My sister and I were absentee owners our mother's house in Spokane as a rental for 10 years. It was old, beat up and basically a dump. Tanya helped me clean, repair, prune, and paint throughout to just make it presentable. After 3 months we were finally able to get it on the market. We received two offers in one day at a fair price; 30 days later escrow closed. It does not get much better than that.

- John V.  


"Go With Tanya! You Will Be in Good Hands!"

Tanya Starkel with Avenue Stone is the best realtor you could find - anywhere! My husband and I have sold multiple homes in various states to include Spokane. Tanya delivered excellent service and marketing skills. She hired a professional home stager, videographer, and photographer. After using all these resources, she mailed a beautiful tri-fold out to neighbors in a several mile radius along with conducting open houses. She navigated us through offers on our home and other homes, never missing a timeframe. She has the best follow through and wonderful rapport with other professionals in the industry..

- Althea W.  


"Tanya Went Above and Beyond!"

She was there through selling and marketing our home to finding us our new home. She always took the time to answer our questions, talk to us when things got overwhelming in this crazy market, and finding us our forever home before it was even on the market! If it wasn't for Tanya, I am not sure what we would have done!!

- Abby J. 


"Tanya is Exactly Who You Want When You Are Looking for Your Home."

She listened to what my husband and I wanted, was always responsive, and worked with our schedule when it came to home viewing, walk-through, and signing. We never felt pressured to settle for a house but instead she helped us search for exactly what we wanted. She was with us from beginning to closing and someone we highly recommend. Thank you Tanya!

- Lesly E. 


"You Will Not Be Disappointed!"

I had the most positive experience buying a house with Tanya Starkles' help. She was quick to respond and make herself available. I appreciated her openness to my pursuit to discover what it was I wanted in a home. She supported me, listened to me, gave me her advice when I asked for it. Her responses were always factual. Her responses were to give me the knowledge to make a decision. She never elaborated with over-sells or provided pushy statements to expedite or push me on my decision. Tanya assisted me with online difficulties, and finding the right professionals to assist with questions and closing on my new home.She is professional, patient, knowledgeable, and kind. Tanya will be the first person I call if I am ever looking for another property. Highly recommend her.

- Christine O.   


"Thank You!"

We threw Tanya all sorts of issues as we attempted to buy a home while living internationally. Tanya handled the communication challenges, our inexperience as first time home buyers, and the challenge of evaluating a fully renovated home with skill and grace. We are thankful she was recommended to us, and recommend her without hesitation to others.

- Dane C.


"Tanya is Great!"

I was fortunate to meet her at an open house long before I was ready to buy a home. She kept in touch in the months following so when I finally made the decision to start seriously looking, she was top of mind. My fiance and I were first-time homebuyers (read: clueless) but Tanya walked us through every step of the process. She was responsive, knowledgeable, and fun to work with. We highly recommend Tanya, we know from experience she will go the extra mile to help you get the home of your dreams.

- Chloe B.


"We Had a Wonderful Experience With Tanya Starkel."

She helped us both sell and buy all at the same time. Her commitment to service really minimized the stress level that comes with trying to coordinate buying and selling in this market. I would highly recommend Tanya.

- Dane W.  


"Tanya Did a Great Job Selling Our Home."

Our (former) house stood out from the others on the market. The video production, including a drone, pictures and her crews staging advice. We could not be happier!

- Christopher W.  


"Tanya Has Bought a House From Me and Helped Me Buy a House."

She is amazing to work with. She is knowledgeable about what she does. She is honest and easy to work with. My mom has also bought a house with her and is using her to sell a house now. I would recommend Tanya to anyone who is buying or selling a house.

- Mikey S.  


"WONDERFUL to Work With!"

I was clueless when it comes to the home buying process. Tanya walked me through the entire process step by step. She’s professional, genuine and definitely a trustworthy person. She listened to my wants/needs and I never felt pressured. She was available to answer any questions and show me homes whenever it was convenient for me. Due to the competitive market, I was doubtful about anyone accepting my offers. With Tanya’s guidance and expertise, my offer was accepted and I got the home I wanted the most! It was a pleasure to work with Tanya! I highly recommend her to anyone!

- Jamie K.


"Would Highly Recommend Her!"

Very personable and really motivated to sell your home quickly!! Was available at anytime I needed her which was very helpful in getting moved out of my home. Great attention to details for video and pictures.

- Brandy R.


"I Totally Recommend Her."

I have to admit that we were picky home shoppers. We were looking for a house in a specific neighborhood, with a specific number of rooms, bathrooms, garage, school district, square footage, not too old, not too new, etc, etc. Tanya was extremely patient with us until she found exactly what we were looking for. She is friendly yet professional. She is experienced, communicates clearly, responds to texts and emails quickly.

- Mahin D.


"Hire Tanya and Her Team for Your Next Real Estate Deal."

This is our second home sale with Tanya as our guide. Both experiences were remarkably smooth and carried out with complete professionalism. Questions are answered quickly. Concerns are handled professionally and with calm measured guidance. You are in control of the process, but as stated above, Tanya is your guide. She will always give you good advice. Whether it's what you want to hear, or what you don't want to hear, it's always good council. I could go on but really what you need to know is.

- Robyn F.


"She Realistically Went Over the Home Market With Us."

If you want to sell your home with one of the best then I would suggest Tanya Starkel. Her professionalism shined as she treated our home as her own when we went to list with her. She provided professional photography to showcase our home in a beautiful brochure. In addition, a home stager was provided at no cost to us, who came and gave many great tips on ways to make our home more buyer friendly. She was eager to help, and always delivered whatever was promised. She realistically went over the home market with us, so we could value our home at a competitive but fair price.
