Reviews & Recommendations

Tara provided excellent service throughout the entire process. She communicated well and displayed a high level of professionalism. Her experience and knowledge were invaluable. If we had not relocated, we would have definitely asked Tara to find our new home."

Minyon B.

Working with Tara is a misnomer; there is no 'work' to it! Everything she tackles is a labor of love where the only outcome allowed is a win-win for all parties involved. She is that rare agent who embraces the moment to add fun and an humor while, simultaneously, planning 10 steps ahead. When my phone rings, I always hope it is Tara......"

She keeps her eye on the details which made me feel very comfortable with her because I know she is watching out for me. I highly recommend her!"

Susan M.

She was the best real estate agent I could ever ask for. Took time to explain everything such as paper work and terminology and didn't stop helping us until we found exactly what we were looking for. She puts a lot of time and energy into her services and is determined to find the home for you and your family."

Demetrious C.

Tara was extremely helpful during my home search, she was also incredibly patient since I had never been through this process before. I made some mistakes and asked so many questions, and through it all Tara was wonderful."

Julia L. 

Tara is the definition of a true professional. It is clear that she has a passion for and loves what she does. She's very responsive and committed to making sure her clients get nothing less than excellence. She works tirelessly to make her clients dreams a reality. Although we've only know her for a short time, it seems that we've know her for years. She is down to earth, friendly and easy going. She has her clients interest at heart and genuinely cares for securing their financial goals. Tara is simply one word... exceptional."

Fan B.

Tara is an excellent and professional Realtor, she was always available when I needed her. My sale process was smooth and quick. I will recommend her to anyone that is in need of a Realtor. Very satisfied with her services.

Madeline R.

We were extremely impressed with Tara's responsiveness and willingness to work around our schedules. Her expertise and advice were invaluable."

Janet L.

Between a short time line and an aggravating buyers agent, Tara never failed to keep our best interest in mind. Negotiating and standing our ground she not only helped sell our house early, but in depth knowledge helped us to also make a profit to benefit the quick move we were forced to make. Thank you Tara!"

Thomas F.

Tara did an amazing job helping us find a great home."

Bashane L.

Tara was wonderful! I happened to run into her by chance and we started discussing real estate as my husband and I were ready to out our home on the market. I was so impressed with how knowledgeable and professional Tara was that I immediately asked her to be our selling realtor. Tara was on top of everything at all the times, constantly keeping us updated and informed of everything going on. As professional and on point as she was and is, she still is so laid back and easy to work with. If we had to do it all over again we would choose Tara in a heartbeat! Thanks Tara for everything!"

Jennifer H.

10 out of 10. By far the best realtor that I've worked with. Exceptionally hard working and knowledgeable."

Hunter M.

Tara was amazing, we were moving from out of state and only had one day to house hunt. She was very organized and made sure we were able to see everything we had asked (close to 15 houses!) while never rushing us. We were under contract with our new home by the next morning. She was always very flexible and accommodating to our schedule and her positive attitude made us feel lucky to have her as our agent. We would highly recommend her."

Randa M.

Tara is an awesome agent that really knows how to sell a home. She knows a lot of professionals that expedite the process as well (Home repair, etc.) Tara is proficient with technology, yet very patient if you are not!!! Our house sold so quickly due to the way she helped us stage it. Even though we had already moved out of state, she held down the fort and made sure everything went extra smooth with closing. Thank you so much, Tara!"

Annette C.

There are truly no words to really relay our sincere since of gratitude to Tara for her hard work and dedication to executing the sale of our home. We interviewed another agent prior to selecting Tara and there was absolutely NO COMPARISON. Tara won our selection within the first five minutes of meeting her. She was very professional and focused. She came with a genuine and realistic overview of how we could sell our home and her presentation demonstrated her expertise and confidence. We were "sold" on her being the One to sale our home. Tara brought fresh ideas to the staging of the house, she was innovative in her techniques and provided us with action items and an attainable time line. We found her to be extremely personable, available and a master negotiator. She had a wealth of resources for us to pull from to assist in getting our home staged as well as vendors to assist us along the way. Everyone we encountered spoke highly of Tara and that merely confirmed that everything we already thought of her was true...she was earnest, committed, and highly skilled. Tara sold our home in record time for top dollar! We actually ended up in a bidding war with one buyer coming in over the asking price. In the end, we sold our home for cash; the transaction was supernaturally smooth and Tara was there for us every step of the way! We have already recommended her to friends and associates and we highly recommend her to you! If you are looking to purchase or list a home, there is ONE who stands out from the rest -- TARA BRAITHWAITE :)"

Tara, simply put, is awesome. She takes the time to make sure that she doesn't just find you a house, she makes sure to find you and your family a home. She is professional, efficient, and reliable. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a home in the Jacksonville area. Thank you Tara!!"

Ross W.

Tara was very patient with me and my wife. Her greatest strength is that she is very knowledgeable of the market, the communities in Jacksonville and the entire home buying process. She explained how the process works and the various forms that had to be completed. I'm very happy with my new home. Thanks for all your help!"

Mike H.

Tara was a pleasure to work with. She was very patient with my husband and me as we looked for our perfect new home. Thanks for being an important part of the next chapter of our lives!"
