Tara Hearn helped my family and I relocate from Halifax NS to Victoria BC with a 35 day notice to move. She was quick to help define our wants and needs in a home within our modest budget. Within two days on our house hunting trip we seen over 20 homes. We soon fell in love with a place that we just had to have. She helped us negotiate a fair price and a quick possession.
We have been living here for 6 months now, love our home, and our neighbourhood. We thank Tara Hearn for her dedication and patience in dealing with a short notice, quick possession, max flex military situation.

My husband and I met Tara thru a viewing at a home she had listed. Tara was friendly and knowledgeable about the different neighborhoods in Victoria and very professional, so we chose Tara to assist us in finding a home for our daughter and her family, who were moving to the island from out east. Tara was very patient and showed us many homes without ever making us feel any pressure to purchase. We did find THE home for our kids and Tara made the whole purchase process very easy and stress free, facilitating responses to any questions that came up from our lawyer and mortgager. It was a pleasure working with Tara. Thank you for a job well done in getting our kids their new home. ~ Margaret Ruiter

I had the honour to get to know Tara Hearn through both her professional work as a Realtor and her community involvement. I was deeply impressed with her personal participation during the home staging consultation I provided for her seller. She took the time and every effort to make sure her client was comfortable with my suggestions and that every little detail was taken care of, in order to achieve best possible results for the presentation of the property while paying special attention to the needs and emotions of the seller. I was also involved in a fundraising project that Tara organized recently. Her passion for the community, for helping people in need, and all the energy she puts into her charity work is unlimited. She inspired lots of women small business owners to get involved on different levels and the event was a huge success. I cannot recommend Tara high enough. If you are looking for a realtor who will do the absolute best for you, Tara Hearn is the one.

Our move was a military move and we had ONE WEEK to buy a house. Tara pulled this off flawlessly, even considering the house was a foreclosure and we had to go through the courts! She made our house buying experience as least stressful as possible. And for me number one reason I would use her again is her personality! She is so funny and kind. Thanks Tara!"
