Tara McGuire

Realtor®, CNE

Tara has been in the real estate industry in Austin since 1999. Her role has changed over the years from selling to running her own successful brokerage which included business development, training agents, operations, marketing, and compliance. In 2014 she sold her brokerage and joined Bramlett Residential, again as a sales agent. She has produced in the top 1% of Austin area agents for the past 5 years and has built a team of four that provides outstanding service and market expertise to all their clients. Tara’s team earned the Austin Business Journal’s Residential Real Estate award in 2021 for closing more than $60 million in residential home sales.

Tara believes in building strong relationships with her clients. More than selling homes, Tara provides real estate consultation services. She feels it is her job to provide sound advice for clients to meet their financial real estate goals whether that means selling a home or not. In the end, it's Tara's extreme understanding of the Austin real estate market, her transparency, and her honest advice that lead to sales, whether it's immediate or it’s clients coming back many years down the road when the time is right for them to buy or sell.

Tara has built out her successful real estate team with her husband Craig, and longtime friends Stacy Zellner and Lauren Salazar. It says a lot to work alongside people you have known that long and makes it a ton of fun too! Tara and Craig have three kids that they are very proud of and are just around the corner to graduating to empty nester status. In her sometimes-limited free time Tara enjoys tennis, hiking, Pilates, e-bikes, and travel.

It's apparent very quickly upon meeting Tara that she is no nonsense and no pressure. Tara is extremely efficient, pays incredible attention to detail, is very clear in her communication, down to earth and runs her business on strong systems and processes. Her clients rely on her professionalism and appreciate her relationships within the Austin real estate community that have served her well in her nearly 25 years in the business. You could say she knows a thing or two about the Austin Real Estate market. Click Here to Read Tara's Real Estate Story

Initially it was frightening to think of building a new home when we lived 8 hours away in another state. However, that all changed when we began to work with Tara McGuire. She was fabulous! Tara was intimately involved in the entire process. When we were not able to travel to be onsite when decisions had to be made, Tara was more than happy to do so. I truly cannot say enough positive things about working with Tara and her team at Bramlett.

Tara McGuire’s skilled team helped us navigate the often-complex logistics of prepping, listing and selling our home while moving cross-country to another state, and we couldn’t be happier: they were wonderful to work with, conscientious and professional from start to finish, with great insights about staging and prepping the house for sale. She handled the sale negotiations smoothly and found us a great buyer. And best of all, our house sold for more than the asking price with multiple offers, and a quick close! I highly recommend Tara and her team of professionals to anyone looking to sell or buy a home.

We worked with Tara McGuire to sell property and she was fabulous. All of the parties involved lived in different states and she was able to make selling easy for all of us. She was knowledgeable about the current market to aid our decision about the sale of the property, and I highly recommend her for any of your real estate needs!

Tara McGuire made the process of selling my home smooth, seamless and successful. During our initial engagement, she listened and learned in an effort to understand my needs and goals related to selling the property. This effort ensured the entire process — from prepping the house for market, to managing showings, to closing the sale — met my needs and accomplished my goals. And as if that’s not enough awesomeness, she also coordinated a remote close that was simple and convenient. Thanks for all you did to make the sale of my home a reality! I appreciate you, Tara!

I researched the Texas Association of Realtors website looking for a realtor to handle an estate sale. After reading reviews of Tara McGuire, I was very impressed. I contacted her and learned her first house sale was in the neighborhood where my parent’s home was located. Tara has a fantastic team in place to assist her with the listings. She met with me at the house and waited patiently until I was provided the necessary paperwork to list the house. During this whole time, she kept in touch, kept me updated on the housing market, and was very supportive. Her team supports her requesting pertinent information regarding the house in order to provide the most information to potential buyers. We listed on a Thursday morning, had three offers by noon, and when the listing closed on Monday had eleven offers with all but two being full cash offers. Tara worked diligently to ensure this sale went through as smoothly as it could. I will definitely use her again should I need to sell a house. I highly recommend Tara.

This is my second transaction working with Tara McGuire of Bramlett Realty, and she has been a consistent pillar of guidance for us during a crazy market in the Austin area.  Our first was moving from out of state pre-Covid and then once we settled in and we decided to make a second move, in an even more challenging market during the pandemic, Tara was there as our community expert with whatever we needed.  It is often so much more than buying a house, (which she is an expert at) but is able to refer any number of resources to help get things fixed and/or serviced- even has the best local jaunts to recommend as newbies to area.  Tara has become our go-to for a lot.  She demonstrates the patience, diligence, thoroughness, and the leadership we appreciate in a real estate professional and would not use anyone else!

I have known Tara McGuire for years and just recently had the opportunity to work with her on the listing/sale of an investment property. From early conversations discussing strategy and long term goals (well before she was formally my realtor), right down to closing, she and her team were all in. I was grateful for their expertise and calm approach in the current chaos of the Austin real estate market.

Tara McGuire was a great agent. She anticipated needs and problems and addressed them; presenting us solutions not problems. I’ve used lots of agents over time and Tara ranks among the top I’ve used. I highly recommend her.

Tara is a wonderful realtor. I had a historic multi-family Clarksville home in downtown Austin. I had a bad first experiance with another realtor and agency. I contacted Bramlett Realtors after terminating that contract and reached Tara. I explained to her that the property I was wanting to sell was a historic one of a kind downtown property. Although the property had an amazing location and alot of historic charm and some beautiful artistc upgrades, it was going to be hard to sell. It was a complicated one of a kind property, that required more atttention then other sales. Tara did a great job. She secured banks that were able to finance our one of a kind multi-family sale if neccessary. Tara stuck by me after three contracts fell through. We ended up securing an all cash contract and closed in ten days. I was very lucky to find Tara. She did a great job representing me, and I felt like she had my back during entire time of representation. I highly recomend Tara and Braumlet Realtors for someone looking for a sellers representation realtor.

This is my fourth…yes, my fourth real estate transaction with Tara McGuire! I’ve used Tara to buy and sell our family home, and then again for  investment properties. Buying and/or selling a home today in Austin, TX can be very overwhelming, as this city is in such high demand and the desire for homes are outweighing the supply. Tara has been in Austin and in the real estate industry for over 20 years, so she is not only a top agent in Austin, she’s a local! There was never a question I had to ask because it was already answered. She simplified every complication, minimized every major detail and ensured that every base was covered. One of her greatest qualities is that she is far more than just an agent to her clients. She’s honest and goes above and beyond her role as a sales representative to ensure her clients are making sound decisions. She truly gets to know her clients and works tirelessly to find the perfect fit for their family.  Client’s  that work with her don’t just thank her and move on; they continue to have a longstanding relationship that includes forever having her in your corner for advice on any and everything Austin. She’s the definition of your superhero! Buying or selling is such an emotionally fragile time and Tara will hold your hand through it all. She will be your suit of armor and go to bat for you all through the county. Tara will continue working with you until you have exactly what you desire, while honestly telling you what you can and cannot afford, should do, shouldn’t do, need to do, etc. Home buying and selling is a stressful but exciting time and can make some people (like me) turn into a crazy person, but Tara will keep you calm and positive. Most importantly, she always works her magic and somehow, someway, she makes every part of the entire transaction perfect and you end up with way more than you wanted!

Tara McGuire with Bramlett Real Estate took care of all the details AND took care of us as we made the emotional decision to sell our house during a pandemic. She was understanding AND efficient. Their expertise and contacts in the industry really showed. We are very happy we worked with her and her team at Bramlett

I had the absolute pleasure of working with Tara McGuire in selling my home! She literally handled everything and anything you could think of. She was very transparent on what to expect during the entire process from pre-listing all the way through closing. She priced our home after a detailed analysis and explained the ins and outs, the factors for the pricing and everything in between. I could not have asked for an easier transaction and a better person to work with!
