Leveraging over 17 years of experience as a successful business owner, Tara's business background encompasses all aspects of residential real estate, subdivision development, housing crisis counseling, and luxury estates including Wineries as well as Bed & Breakfast properties. Tara is known for outstanding client service, consistent communication and responsiveness, creative high tech marketing techniques, personal touches, and as a skilled negotiator with her client’s best interests at heart. She believes strongly that her success is not rooted in any single transaction, but in her ability to establish long-term relationships that last beyond your time together. As a long-time Sonoma County resident with deep roots in the community, she is able to educate her clients throughout every step of the process armed with top-notch information and market insight, so they are able to make sound decisions that establish and maintain their personal wealth. Tara's clients count on her to be honest, educated, and knowledgable about the real estate industry. She prides herself on the ability to connect with people from all walks of life, and has represented celebrities and international luxury clients, as well as local friends and family of all ages and income brackets. Tara will patiently guide you in one of the biggest decisions of your life. With a no-pressure, customer service attitude, she is committed to making your real estate experience not only memorable, but admirable. Her ability to provide solid counsel is what keeps Tara’s clients coming back, and gives them the confidence to refer her to their friends and family. Her expertise in her field and her love of Sonoma County guarantee your satisfaction.


Recently named a "Bay Area Top Rated Real Estate Agent", Tara was chosen for this award through careful research that narrowed down the top 5% of professionals in the area, and their professional qualifications, experience, reputation and skill in dealing with customers as well as their community involvement, and reviews on websites such as: Yelp, Trulia, Zillow, Redfin, Realtor.com and other leading independent real estate rating companies. In addition, in 2015, Tara negotiated the sale of the highest valued property in Sebastopol, per Bareis MLS. Beginning in January 2017, recipients of this award will be featured in a marketing campaign that will run during popular shows like Million Dollar Listing, Property Brothers, Flip this House, and other programming that will drive traffic to a new On-Demand Comcast channel allowing consumers to view listings by their Featured Agent through their television, and at their leisure. 


Tara is originally from San Diego (Go Chargers!) and has lived in Sonoma County for over 30 years. She is an avid football fan, dog lover, and coffee addict. Tara earned a degree in Merchandise Marketing and Business Administration, and has raised 4 children (3 girls and a boy) in the community, which has allowed her the opportunity to get involved in sports coaching, charities to benefit the homeless population, and provide opportunities to at-risk youth as well as veterans.  


As a child, Tara's mother had an adventurous spirit, and would often open a map, close her eyes, and put her finger down, moving the family to whichever location in the country was randomly selected.  This experience taught Tara how to be adaptable, open to new experience, and capable of establishing connections with people quickly. She currently resides in the Rincon Valley area of Santa Rosa with an office in downtown Sonoma, and spends her free time hiking, traveling the world, exploring the Bay Area, and taking her sidekick (a MinPin named Bruiser) to various dog parks.   


Tara is passionate about giving back to her community, and donates a portion of each commission to GiveBackHomes, to build and provide homes for families in need. Tara also finds opportunities at her events and closings to utilize other charitable organizations such as ONEHOPE Wine, supports local art, volunteers at the Redwood Gospel Mission, and stays involved with the Humane Society and ASPCA.
