Experience

HELEN TARANTINO
Broker/Realtor®
In 2008, I started listing homes and assisting buyers purchasing them after having been actively involved in real estate since 1992 as a licensed real estate appraiser.

I have bought, repaired, rented and sold properties and use this expertise to facilitate a client's home sale. It also enables me to show potential buyers the value and possibilities in each of my listings that they come to view.

While appraising, I completed assignments in all neighborhoods of Boston, Metro West and Southeastern Massachusetts completing approximately 5,000 residential appraisals. My appraising credentials include completing assignments under the FHA and VA loan criteria, valuing complex and unique homes including income, luxury and waterfront properties, valuing homes for legal proceedings as well as bank owned properties which included completing renovation estimates with those valuations.
