"Tara was an excellent realtor, she was able to understand my needs and preferences and direct me to the buildings that would suit my needs and that were within my budget. She was able to advise me on the pros and cons of each building, while also letting me come to my own decision. She was very patient with me and was willing to help me through the application process, which was very helpful."
- Thanasi B.

"I was moving to Chicago with no knowledge of the city, and Tara helped me find the perfect spot! She is very knowledgeable, and I have since recommended her to my boyfriend in his search for an apartment. When Tara helped me find my apartment, I changed my mind about 5 times, and she was very flexible each time I changed my mind. Thank you, Tara!" - Elana H.

"I worked with Tara as I was out of town and I needed someone checking apartments for me. She was extremely helpful and patient. She visited several options and did virtual tours with me. She was honest about potential problems with specific apartments even if they were more expensive than the one I ended up getting, proving that she cared about me being happy with the end result more than cashing some extra bucks. Moving tends to be a very stressful situation and thanks to Tara, at least the finding a new place part, was smoother than I anticipated. I would definitely work with her again and recommend for anyone needing someone responsive and knowledgeable" - Jose R.
