Although Tara spent 15 years away from her native St. Louis in Denver, she and her family returned home to be back with relatives and the beautiful brick architecture of St. Louis City. While away, Tara’s life was a mix of fashion & flips where she was an Executive Manager at Saks 5th Avenue by day and a rehabber with her husband Tim by night. And so began her love affair with real estate. She has a passion for matching buyers with the perfect home and will go to great lengths to find just the right one. Her high standards of service throughout the entire home buying and selling process puts her clients at ease. Tara loves living in Tower Grove Heights with her husband and 2 boys, Elliot & Sullivan where she enjoys everything that has to do with the great outdoors and exploring the historic neighborhoods of St. Louis. A few things that you can always count on; when you see Tara she always has a smile on her face & cute shoes on her feet.
“Moving is never fun but Tara took so much of the stress out of moving. So many times she went the extra step that I would never have expected from a realtor. We found ourselves in a position of having to move most of our furniture out of our home while we were out of town. She completely took charge and handled everything in our absence. What a godsend! She also went above and beyond in negotiations for both selling our house and purchasing the new one. Over time you forget how painful moving really is and when that reality hit me again, Tara was there to make it all manageable. By far the best agent I have worked with!”

“I called Garcia Properties and was referred to Tara after explaining to them my somewhat unique situation. I wanted to sell my South City home from overseas, where I now live. Tara had worked with at least one other seller who lived overseas while they sold their St. Louis home, so they felt she would be a good fit. And oh my, was their referral spot-on! Tara gave me terrific advice prior to listing my home in order to get it ready for the market. She met with handymen and even the city inspector since I wasn’t able to manage these things living so far away. She was a fantastic negotiator after we accepted an offer (multiple came within the first 24 hours!). I feel like she was truly on my side and had my best interest at heart. She was an excellent communicator, very responsive and was even conscientious about our time difference, asI am several hours ahead of St. Louis time. I cannot speak highly enough of Tara. She was a Godsend!”

“My wife and I have purchased two homes through Tara and are currently selling one other. Tara has proven herself to be a remarkable breath of fresh air in the St. Louis real estate market. She is an extremely intelligent, kindhearted professional, who is not affaird to fight for her clients when the situation calls for it. When it comes to negotiating and landing the house of your dreams, Tara is simply the best. I often hear my friends and family complain about the terrible experience they had buying, selling, or just working day to day with their Agents and I realize just how lucky we are to have the best in town working for us!!! When something as important as your home is on the line, it’s nice to have someone who is just as invested as you are involved with the process.”
