My husband and I had an excellent experience working with Tara McGuire on both selling our home and buying a new home. We were impressed with how extremely knowledgeable Tara is about the market. She knew exactly how to price our home and, like she predicted, we had multiple above asking offers within a few days. She also provide very helpful suggestions on how to prepare and stage our home that we are certain made all the difference. She was very communicative and kept us apprised every step of the way. We highly recommend Tara!
During our house hunting journey, we were absolutely BLESSED to have Tara guiding us. From day one, Tara has been awesome. Tara has consistently been professional, prompt in her communication, attentive to our needs, and very caring. She also is extremely understanding of the stress of home buying and has been so understanding of mine and my husband’s quirks. Tara always did her best to make sure we felt supported and was always honest with us. We completely trust Tara because she consistently proved she knew what she was talking about. Furthermore, the fact that she is so familiar with remodeling processes and costs, helped us better assess the many homes we saw. As to your question about what Tara did especially well; there were so many things. She absolutely always made the time to show us a house we expressed interest in….she never said “oh no, I can’t show you that house”–she never let us down. She is just a very kind, compassionate, and generous person. She always made us feel that she had our back and our best interest at heart. This is such a vulnerable process and she always supported us. There is nothing she could have done better.
Overall, the sales transaction of our home was very good. The only stress I felt was from the title company which was absolutely not Tara’s fault in any way. The title company agent was really not great and that was just our luck as that company was selected by the seller. Tara really made the buying process great.
My family is very grateful to Tara. We are living in our dream home and we are so happy!
Tara McGuire has been an amazing Realtor for me! I really can’t say enough good things. She worked with me to sell my house and buy another one. First of all – selling. I could tell from our initial meeting that she has all of her ducks in a row and thinks of everything. She has a ton of experience and she has a great team who help to support her success. She also is in the loop with contacts for other vendors (home improvement, financial related, etc.) that ended up being important with getting the house ready and actually crucial during the option period for the buyers (an impartial foundation assessment company). I was really impressed with the stager I had access to, and the professional photos of my house were fantastic (both no additional cost for me). Now, buying. I’ve had some twists and turns on my wish list and buying process but Tara has been patient with me and seems to have endless energy with marathon house tour days. I toured some open houses on my own as well, and one of the agents hosting an open house knows Tara and couldn’t say enough good things about her, which reassured me even more than I already knew I made a great choice. One thing that struck me is that she said Tara has a lot of great systems and processes in place and I totally see that. Now we are under contact for our new house, which we are really excited about, and will close this week! I loved that she is taking care of everything for me – she even scheduled the inspection and told me to show up at the end. One thing that I really noticed is that she knows what to say and when. For example, she recommended we go out of town the weekend we listed the house for sale. She gave me a couple interim updates and told me when I got my first offer (plus I had access to the system that records the visits) but basically didn’t worry me about anything until we got all the offers in (7!) and presented which one was best and why it was best. On the other hand, when I was buying, she kept me in the loop with every action – she submitted the offer, the other agent acknowledged, how any negotiations were going, etc. There’s no doubt Tara is a great choice!
This was our second time working with Tara McGuire – this time buying and selling. We were really nervous to buy and sell during the pandemic but Tara made the experience fun and honestly feel very normal. Tara was so professional and used all Covid safety protocols to ensure our family was safe. I have to give kudos to Tara’s negotiating skills as this is the second house we have bought in a multiple offer situation and both times we have come out on top. Tara does a great job being available and guiding you through any questions you may have to make you feel extremely informed and secure in your purchase. Looking forward to working with Tara again in the future!
We had Tara McGuire previously assist us with buying our first house and could not have had a better experience. So of course 3 years later when we wanted to sell it and buy another house for our growing family we reached out to her again. She helped us through the stressful and unusual obstacles during these times and was there by our side to help and support us. She was able to use her experience, expertise and personal touch to sell our house and get us in our new home. Needless to say if you need a realtor you should go with Tara.
Tara McGuire with Bramlett Residential helped us purchase our new home. She was able to answer all of our questions and put our minds at ease as she guided through the home-buying process.
Working with Tara McGuire was a great pleasure, from our first meeting through closing. She and her Team were always on top of what was happening throughout the process and always kept me informed along the way. Tara is very professional and very easy to work with. She coped with a difficult situation to bring the sale to an expeditious and and successful close. Whenever I had any questions about what was expected of me to assist with the sale, Tara always got back to me promptly. I highly recommend Tara, without any hesitation, for your real estate needs.
Tara McGuire at Eric Bramlett was an absolute joy and easy to work with during our house hunt. Tara is professional, highly responsive, trustworthy, and there to answer our questions throughout the entire process. We were looking in Circle C and found our family home in Dripping Springs. Her knowledge of the market and insight on areas was vital in helping us make our decision.
Tara met us at home for an initial meeting so we could outline our search. She listened to our needs and wants, and we had a plan when heading out to look at properties. Tara is on time, prepared, and proactive! As we looked at areas and properties Tara lended us her insight and pointed out details we would have otherwise missed. At closing Tara advocated for us and took her time making sure everything went smooth.
We will definitely work with Tara in the future when ready to sell or buy, and highly recommend her.
Tara McGuire and her team helped us with the sale of our home in the Westlake area in Austin.

Our home purchase with Tara McGuire at Bramlett was excellent and smooth. Tara has great knowledge of the area, is very responsive, and has high attention to detail. She was able to help us learn the basics of Austin real estate quickly, as we were completely new to the area.
Very profesional! Great teamwork! The house was sold after two days in the market. Thanks Tara!
