We were fortunate to find Tara McGuire from Bramlett Residential as our realtor.  A friend who had a great experience with Bramlett Residential introduced us to this real estate firm and the owner referred us to Tara who is one of their experienced realtors.  We were thankful that Tara was able to expertly and safely guide us through the processes of selling our home of 25 years in the volatile Austin market during the extra difficult times of Covid. She laid out a written day-by-day plan, outlining all of the critical checkpoints and events that were required leading up to a successful closing. She leveraged her team who followed up regularly to help us with all of the paperwork and handle all of the details. We were never out of the loop on the status of our sale, and when we had questions or concerns, Tara was quick to respond. In the end, the house listed on a Thursday, the final offers were in on Monday, and we accepted an offer on Tuesday.  Our expectations were exceeded, not only with the level of service we received but with the final price we accepted. When we closed, she was in regular contact with us, expertly handling all of the hiccups. Working with Tara was amazing and we highly recommend her and her team at Bramlett.

Tara McGuire represented us in purchasing our home. To say she was amazing would be an understatement: Tara walked us through every step of the process (this was our first purchase), and provided detailed answers to every question we had, no matter how simple or complex. She helped save money where we could, pointed out things we wouldn’t have otherwise noticed, and was extremely pleasant to work with.

My husband and I worked with Tara McGuire to find our first home in Austin. We couldn’t recommend her enough! She is so knowledgeable of all the areas in Southwest Austin and her connections with other realtors in the area helped us find our home in this crazy market. If you’re looking for a great agent, we highly recommend Tara!

I’ve worked with Tara McGuire at Bramlett on two home purchases and one sale, and I can’t imagine working with anyone else. She’s quick to respond and knows the ins and outs of the market. When we needed to move very fast, she did it faster than I even expected. Everything was so easy working with Tara!

We were in Austin in December 2020 for home leave from my assignment overseas, and had been planning to buy our retirement home in the summer of 2021 and just look around in the week before Christmas. I reached out to Bramlett – having had a very good experience working with them in the summer of 2016 (Tara McGuire was out agent then) to buy our first house (also in Austin). Our agent, Craig McGuire, did thorough research that he shared with us, and advised us – without pressuring us – to consider buying then, given that what we wanted would be well beyond our price point by the summer because of the conditions in the Austin market for the foreseeable future. Observing all the correct COVID-19 protocols, he showed us houses that fit what we were looking for, and once we saw one that we really wanted, gave us the advice needed to help us to win a bidding contest without breaking the bank. This was really important, as after putting in our bid we had to leave Austin and do everything at a distance. Craig was key to making that possible. He found us a good mortgage company that qualified us quickly and, thanks to all his efforts and consistent support, we were able to close in a little over a month – in the time of COVID, doing everything very long-distance, and in a crazy Austin housing market. We’re very happy with our home purchase, and with Craig!

Tara was great to work with. To be honest, the entire team was really on top of things and Tara made the whole process seamless. It really felt like a whole team was supporting us and let us focus on other things outside of the immediacy of selling the house. The transaction was great. Tara made good recommendations on the areas to focus on where to concede. Tara was great about being very upfront in regards to her expertise when we were unsure of certain things but would still make it clear the decision was ours. She was really helpful in helping us weigh out the decisions we made and the potential outcomes from those choices.

All in all, it was a really solid experience and an upgrade from our previous realtor. I will happily use Bramlett again.

We sold our home recently with Tara McGuire. She was an absolute amazing realtor along with the whole supporting team. She kept us updated at every stage and answered all one billion questions we had. She organized a stager, photographer, awesome marketing, and was quick with communication in any format. The end result was a very quick sale with a higher profit margin than we had anticipated. It was a complete pleasure to work with her and definitely will be using her and the team again in the future.

We just sold our house. We received six offers over our listing price in the first five days of listing. Our home sold for the highest price ever on our block. There is only reason that we were able to do that and that is “Tara McGuire” at Bramlett Realty. Tara is the most amazing person. She is so knowledgeable, so detailed, and ever so professional. Tara was with us every step of the way! If we had a question or concern she got back to us immediately. We recommend Tara a thousand percent. She not only maximized the sales price of our home, but she was also an absolute joy to work with. Rich & Karen Phillips Circle C Ranch Austin, TX

I recently had the opportunity to work with Tara McGuire on a new home purchase for her clients. As an owner of the construction company it was a pleasure to work with a seasoned agent that always kept her clients best interest in mind while being conscious of both parties needs. Tara was able to handle a absentee owner purchase and represent her clients at multiple milestones during the transaction like a pro. Tara kept excellent notes and had precise and clear communication throughout the transaction and everything went smoothly due to her involvement representing her clients best interest. Greater Austin Builders would enjoy working with Tara Maguire of the Bramlett real estate company anytime and Tara thank you for the opportunity to earn your business

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!
