Selling Partner/Sales Representative
Tammy is very detail oriented and always has her market numbers down. But she’s also very empathetic and patient, and understands that buying or selling a home is not easy for everyone. “Being able to listen and answer questions is a very important part of what I do,” she says.
She is known around the office for being incredibly responsive and flexible, with a gift for switching gears depending on what each client needs. “Some people are more interested in the numbers, but for others a home is a big part of their personal life.”
Having bought and sold homes for hundreds of clients since she joined the Paul Rushforth team in 2012, she is a highly experienced negotiator. “You have to be a strategist to be in this business. It’s all about getting the job done for the client,” says Tammy.
“She was amazing. Trying to sell a property is stressful enough, but add in a distance of 1300km plus tenants, I was a borderline basket case. Tammy was able to make me feel comfortable enough throughout the process that she had my entire confidence. She has the ability to make one feel comfortable and secure in her abilities. If I am ever looking for another property in the area, I would not hesitate to use the Paul Rushforth team.”

"I have nothing but praise. My agent, Tammy Dopson, has the patience of an angel. My husband passed away just a few days after listing. She immediately cancelled all showings until she said I was totally ready. When I called almost two weeks later, showings resumed. I was rather emotional during the next few weeks but Tammy answered every phone call and e-mail. It was listed on April 15th and sold on May 13th despite it being off the market for almost two weeks. I am very happy with the amount the house sold for and her advice and assistance was invaluable."

A straight shooter with a caring heart, she is equally adept with investors and people going through a major life transitions, whether they’re upsizing or downsizing their homes. If a couple has different priorities, her natural diplomatic skills kick in. She is also an expert with rural properties, and is very familiar with their special considerations and benefits. Her ability to zero in on the best features of every home and showcasing them to buyers is critical to her success.
