Tucker is also an avid supporter of the local performing arts and is a dedicated member of Congregation Beth Israel. Currently, Tucker serves as a board member of the Piedmont Housing Alliance, Tandem Friends School and Camp Albemarle.
Under Tucker's keen eye, his dedicated real estate staff handles traditional real estate transactions - purchases, refinances and sales - with such professionalism and courtesy that many clients return for future transactions or refer their friends to Tucker and his team.
Tucker offers valuable advice to buyers and sellers. For example, his instructions for buyers include the following:
1. Select an experienced real estate agent and settlement agent early in the process.
2. Shop for Homeowner's insurance and include your car in the pricing as some discounts may be available.
3. Understand that the actual amount of cash needed to close may not be known until just before closing (sometimes not until the day of closing).
For smooth selling, Tucker urges all sellers to (among other tips):
1. Select an experienced real estate agent who has knowledge of your local market.
2. Provide a copy of the title insurance policy and physical survey to your listing agent.
3. Leave the utilities on until the actual settlement and transfer of title.
Every week, Tucker publishes "Tucker's Tips": his tips and advice for local Realtors and lenders. These tips cover topics from dealing with homeowner's association dues to selling distressed properties.

He did a fabulous job on a very complicated short sale for me. He was outstanding! I would recommend him to anyone. I would use him again if I ever needed to (which hopefully I will not!).
