"Tara is an incredible talent. She is truly one of the lucky few who do what they love for a living, and it shows at every step of the process. The purchase of our first home would have been a nightmare had it not been for her. She made the whole process as smooth as possible. Aside from her work ethic, you can tell that she truly cares about the people she works with. You honestly couldn't do better for a real estate professional."
Tyler S. - Seller (GR - Creston Neighborhood)
"Tara is an AMAZING realtor! My partner and I met with her without an inkling of an idea of the home buying process, and she not only met with us at times that were outside of normal business hours, but she educated us, and was super professional, patient, and thorough. Tara will go above and beyond the call of duty to help you find your dream home. We are in our home still, and our relationship did not stop at the close date/signing the paperwork; and I consider her a fellow "furmomma" and friend. You will not be disappointed!"
Nicole S. - First Time Home Buyer (Comstock Park, MI)
"Tara is a wonderful realtor who I will absolutely be using again in the future. Tara was organized, detailed and motivated regarding the sale my property. Although she did not assist me in buying on this occasion, it is obvious that she is extremely knowledgeable in that area as well. Tara is very quick at the turnaround of paperwork, photography, listings, showings, open houses, etc. I told her I would like to list my property on Tuesday and pictures were taken by the end of the week and the listing was posted by Sunday morning and by Monday afternoon I receive and accepted an awesome offer. Tara goes above and beyond and does not hesitate in going to bat for her clients."
Taylor R. - Seller (Jenison, MI)
"Tara was so wonderful to work with. She taught us so much about houses and the buying process that we never would have known without her. She made everything so simple for us and took the stress out of the buying process. We would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone that is in need of a realtor!"
