Peter Tamura e-PRO, GRI -"Opening Doors in Tulsa!"
I am half of the Bannochie Team at Coldwell Banker Select in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I started my real estate career in 2003 in Fremont, California. I got to see the 20% appreciation and the extreme market in Fremont with prices topping out in 2006 at over $700/square foot. It is great to be in an affordable area where the dream of home ownership is alive and well. We cover the homes in Metro Tulsa, including Jenks, Broken Arrow, Owasso & the Union School District. Many areas in Tulsa boast excellent schools and newer housing, and strong rental markets, making Tulsa an excellent investment.
Below are some of my designations and credentials:
CRS- the premier designation in real estate, includes class training and a minimum production level. There are only about 35,000 CRS designees of more than one more million agents, so you know that a CRS agent is an experienced, trained agent. I was the Oklahoma Chapter President and CRS of the Year for 2015.
e-PRO- a course and designation to keep realtors on the cutting edge of technology for marketing properties.
GRI-Graduate Realtor Institute- A year long course for Realtors covering with 92 hours of live course instruction, considered a premier real estate designation.
Dave Cobo Leadership Certificate from St. Mary's in Moraga- Sponsored by Prudential to take a year long course in leadership and management.
Corporate Instructor (CAR Purchase Contract)- Instructor to new agents in the California Association of Realtors Purchase Contract- This was a two day course and one of the most important classes for a new agent, I taught this course over a two year period in Pleasanton.
CDPE-Certified Distressed Property Expert-Astonishingly seven out of ten homes go to foreclosure without active intervention. We sit down with sellers and explore their options, including renting the home, short sale or loan modification. It's a critical function in the current market.
Leadership Tulsa 48- I am a graduate of Leadership Tulsa. It is a year long program where we travel to different parts of our city and meet with civic leaders and learn about the opportunities and challenges of Tulsa. We met with government and business leaders in different parts of Tulsa to learn and discuss, challenges and opportunities in each locale. We had a chance to network with current and future leaders and participate in a board internship with the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma.

Testimonials for Peter Tamura
We listed our home with Peter Tamura on 9/21 and closed on 12/29, so it was a relatively quick sale - but it was wild ride and without Peter's expertise, it would not have happened. We got a questionable inspection from someone hired by our first potential buyer. It caused her to back out. Peter was able to get an objective 2nd opinion that was acceptable (honestly objective - this person did not know the results of the first) and we were able to move on. The 2nd buyer knew of both inspections and hired his own who also knew nothing of the first inspections and also gave an acceptable report. Without Peter's assistance of finding an objective inspector, that first flawed inspection might have caused us to lose so much value that we couldn't sell the house. Peter helped us navigate our way through a few small repairs that needed to be done and we were close to the finish line --- And THEN the house was vandalized the day before the appraisal was to be done and 2 weeks before our scheduled closing date. Again Peter helped us as we worked with the buyer and his agent in determining the best way to restore the property in a manner acceptable to the buyer and work with the appraiser in rescheduling in an effort to make our closing date. Although we did end up rescheduling the closing to 6 days after the original date, we got there very successfully and on good terms with both the buyer and the buyer's realtor. Peter gave us a good understanding of each part of the process, kept us informed and was easily accessible when we had a question. Thank you, Peter for helping us through that adventure!
Peter did a great job selling my house! He returned my calls and texts promptly, worked hard, held several open houses and made the final process go very smoothly!
