As seen on season 6 of the TV show, 'The American Dream', Tamika’s passion for real estate echos her love for a great success story! Tamika's award-winning, 16-year career in real estate started when she became a union 405 Carpenter in San Jose, CA. From building churches, orphanages, and homes for the homeless in Tijuana, Mexico, to volunteering with the peninsula Habitat for Humanity, she quickly understood that homeownership is an essential tool for generational wealth building.

Tamika was truly incredible! Being in the bay area with this seller's market, particularly as a first time homebuyer was beyond intimidating...until working with Tamika. She was knowledgeable, professional, and POSITIVE. If you want a realtor that truly cares about her clients, works hard and makes  sure that you have a very clear sense of the buying process- Tamika is your person. The listing agent of the house we bought also shared that Tamika was a big part of what tipped the scale to get us a house that we were actually not the highest offer on- she is fierce and so so good at her job. HIGHLY recommend!!

My husband and I were just starting the process of purchasing our first home and weren't even sure we needed an agent. We are SO glad we decided to hire Tamika Ellsworth! She is a smart confident woman with an amazing depth of knowledge of the real estate industry and what we needed to do to  stand out from other buyers! Even though we weren't immediately successful in finding a home, she never let us lose faith in the process and helped us every step of the way! She was always quick to answer any question at any hour, and even took the time to give us a presentation of the whole home buying process! I intend on recommending Tamika to everyone I know! Thank you Tamika for making our first experience and smooth and pleasant one!

My wife and I very recently worked with Tamika and EQ1 Realty to make our first home purchase. We live in the SF Bay Area and the real estate market is ridiculously competitive to say the least. We were working with a VA Loan and going against both established home buyers with conventional loans  and with cash buyers. Tamika knew what we needed to offer in order for our bid to be competitive. Long story short, I'm writing this review from the living room of our new house! Tamika was extremely knowledgeable of the market and the buying process, as well as highly responsive to our needs. She is an aggressive agent who gets it done. We can't thank Tamika and EQ1 Real Estate enough!
