I will advise you, guide you, protect you, and negotiate for you all while looking out for your best interests.

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.

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!

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!!

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!

Tara Braithwaite is an excellent realtor! Her professionalism, timeliness to respond, and her vast knowledge of the Jacksonville, Florida, real estate market assisted us greatly in purchasing our new home. She listened carefully to understand our needs while explaining different options for us to consider. Once we found our new home, she attended our walk through and the closing, pointing out items to the builder. Thank you Tara!

Tara was an absolute perfect professional with a vast knowledge in numerous topics that were extremely important to the purchase of my home and the selling of my other house. Even though we have closed 2 months ago, I had an issue with the home warranty company and she was the key to getting the situation resolved.

Tara Braithwaite, Is an extremely professional real estate agent, she provided us all of the need to know information so that we would not experience any surprises. Her trustworthiness and Attention to Detail were a great value to my family during the process of selling our home, I highly recommend Mrs. Braithwaite, and will definitely request her services again if needed.

There’s a reason Tara is rated so highly, as she is an absolute delight to work with. She is dependable, easy to communicate with, proactive, and listened and respected our needs as buyers. As first time home buyers, my Husband and I watched many HGTV shows and spoke with several friends and family about what to expect for our first home shopping experience. But having Tara walk us through every step with her expertise and go-getter demeanor made the process for us a memorable, fun and knowledgeable experience.

I was very pleased, would have rather she be the one to sell. I felt a little rushed to except the price as it was a lot less than sellipistol to lower price that was due to Financing Tara was so willing to assist me in any way .

Tara did an outstanding job helping us sale our house in Jacksonville and buy a house out of state. Communication and response to your calls, text and emails are excellent as well as negotiations. Our house had a contract two days after listing thanks to Tara's marketing strategy. Thanks for everything Tara.

We were completely satisfied with the service that Tara Braithwaite provided us in finding and walking us through the entire process of purchasing a new home. Her knowledge of the process, professionalism, dedication and negotiating skills went well beyond what was expected of a real estate agent. Her dedication was displayed in communicating back and forth where my lender fell short. Her negotiating skills was useful during the application process. She showed attention to detail during our walk through(s) and her professionalism showed throughout the process. Tara Braithwaite made a process that could have been frustrating (waiting for the builder to complete our condo, scheduling, communicating with us and the lender) a very pleasant process.

Tara Braithwaite helped me find and purchase my first home. She was friendly, easy to work with, and dependable. As a first time buyer, I could rely on her to explain the process in detail. I would definitely recommend Tara's real estate expertise to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!

Hi Kelly, thank you for trusting me to be your REALTOR! It was a pleasure working with you!

Tara's dedication and expertise were crucial in securing the contract on our first home. The seller and their agent would do well to spend some time in an institution with padded walls. Tara was always there to navigate their questionable decision making, all the while keeping us feeling confident that everything would be alright. We bought the perfect home and couldn't have done it without Tara. I highly recommend her services.

Brian, I'm so sorry you had a bad experience with the other agent before I got involved! Everything worked out in the long run and you got an awesome house! Thank you for your kind words, it was my pleasure!

From the first phone call to final closing, Tara has gone above and beyond to assist us. As a military family, my wife and I were not in Jacksonville for any point of this home sale, but we had complete peace of mind as Tara was responsive, extremely helpful, and took care of little things for us that I never expect our realtor to do. Even our tenants who met with Tara during her first walk through of our property sent me an email saying how competent and pleasant she was to deal with.

Hi Taylor, you were so easy to work with! I'm glad I was able to make this a smooth and stress-free sale for you! If you are ever in Jacksonville, I would love to meet you and your wife! All the best!

Working with Tara was a great experience, she did whatever possible to satisfy my needs to find what I was looking for. She constantly provided me with multiple choices to chose from and to visit. Tara's motivation to find me a home was unparalleled and I will never forget it. Unfortunately, my job move me to a new location, so my home buying was put on hold. When I start the process again for home buying Tara will definitely will be request by me. Thanks Tara, you were great!!!

Tara took the time to understand our needs/wants and then showed us homes that were aligned with our goals. She was very prompt to respond to us whether we contacted her via email, call, or text. She also went out of her way to ensure she was always present for all viewings, inspections, and closing. Tara was very friendly and professional, and she really was a pleasure dealing with. Buying a new home can be difficult process, but she made it simple and pleasurable. We feel that we were really lucky to have her as our agent, and would absolutely recommend her to anybody considering buying a new home. Brad

Brad, it was so much fun helping you find the perfect home for your family! Congratulations on the new job and I wish you all the best here in Jacksonville!

I really can't express how thankful we are to have received Tara as our realtor. We recently relocated from Louisiana to Saint Johns & were in the home buying process while still living in La. Buying a home while living in another state can be very stressful. But, we felt comfortable knowing that she would be monitoring the process for us. She stayed on top of everything & sent us pictures along the way. She was quick to respond to all our questions & negotiated the best deal for us. We are extremely satisfied with her service. She was personable, professional, & truly one of the nicest people we've met here so far. She has gone above & beyond for us. We continue to say how lucky we have been during this transition to have had her as a resource. Sincerely, Brad & Jennifer

Hi Jennifer, thank you for trusting me to advise you and negotiate for the best home for your family! I hope you enjoy your new home and make wonderful memories in St. Johns and the Jacksonville area!

A real estate agent I recommend. Very knowledgeable on the local areas and schools. I was new to the area and my focus was on price and the best schools. I was happy to find a home in Fleming Island that provides both. She was very helpful and her communication between all agents is what kept us on track to closing. My family and I are thankful for her assistance through a stressful and trying time as we wish her the best. A professional in her field and the person you want on your team.

Hi Steve, it was a long road but we made it and I think you picked the perfect house for your beautiful family! I hope now you all are finally settled in and able to relax and enjoy what Jacksonville has to offer :-)

Having recently moved to the Jacksonville, Tara helped us get to know each area we were interested in so we could make the best choice for our family. She was quick to get us listings and stayed on top of the closing process so that we closed in the time period we wanted to. I highly recommend Tara!

We can't say enough positive comments about our experience with Tara. From start to finish Tara stayed on top of the entire process to ensure "EVERYTHING" went smoothly and timely. Never was there a time when we weren't absolutely aware that Tara was working on our behalf, even when it came to suggesting incentive rebate money back in our pockets that we otherwise would have known nothing about. We plan on using Tara for "ALL" our future realty needs...so Tara you can't leave the area!!! Do yourself a huge favor and insist on Tara for all your real estate needs. Thanks again Tara! (Jerry and Sheila E.; new home owners 5/20/2016).

Jerry and Sheila, you guys are so much fun! Gotta love a family that knows the house for them when they see it! I look forward to working with you again in the future! Thank you for leaving me a review.

My very first interaction with Tara was complete professionalism and quick response time. I am one who asks 1,000 questions and she, without hesitation, addresses all my concerns and meanwhile helps to educate me as a first time home buyer. She continues to allow me to be a huge part in this process, as we look at multiple properties paying close attention to detail with all my desires in my forever home. A safe neighborhood is just as important to me as is to find my diamond in the rough, that is always on her mind too. It's with much sincerity that I am completely happy with Tara by my side to guide me in this journey of being a home owner. Thank you Tara.

Tara Braithwaite helped me successfully purchase an incredible home. She was patient, flexible, and super quick to respond to all of my questions. Being a first time home buyer, Tara gave great advice and was very knowledgeable about what would make my offer stand out in an extremely challenging market. She stuck with me every step of the way offering suggestions and knowledgeable input about pre-inspections and mortgage details.Tara definitely went above and beyond her job to find me the perfect home. She is a 5 star realtor who's accuracy, attention to detail and fast response time took the anxiety of buying a home.
