Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $150K in Colonial Heights, VA.

I was relocating from PA to Virginia. Tara was very prepared and we had plenty of homes to look at when I came for my house hunting trip. I didn't find a house on my trip but when I arrived the search began. Tara knew the type of home I was looking for, and it didn't take long to find one that I was ready to purchase. She was very helpful and determined to get me settled in a home where I would be happy!! I highly recommend Tara! She did a great job!

Helped me rent a home.

I highly recommend Tara Semtner for her high professionalism and my positive experience of working with her. She helped me find a studio apartment to rent in Downtown Richmond. She put in a lot of effort and patience, and guided me through the entire procedure. She was very knowledgeable about the properties, and also gave me a clear idea about the neighborhoods. Since I was new to the city, she even helped me visit some local furniture stores to estimate the price and quality of furniture available. Moreover, she is an extremely nice person, and I loved working with her! Her service is so good, and you will never seek another agent!

Sold a Condo home in 2013 in Glen Allen, VA.

Tara is very knowledgeable and will work very hard for you. Selling a home as a Short-Sale can be very stressful and Tara always knew what to say. From the first time I met her she said "it might take some time but we will get through this, not to worry". I will definitely use her again and will recommend to my family and friends.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $275K in Henrico, VA.

In our lives we come in contact with a handful of people that are life-changers…Tara Semtner is one of those people! I am happy to share my experience with Tara and unequivocally recommend her to anyone that has a need to buy or sell real estate. Tara is thorough, knowledgeable, respectful, helpful and a genuine pleasure to work with. Ford Pham from Greater Richmond Investments introduced me to Tara. She helped me with my short sale in Richmond VA. I was very impressed and thankful for Tara in working my short sale case. She is very knowledgeable, experience and helpful. She will treat you as if you are always the priority. Tara dealt with hard lenders and have gained their favors in approving my short sale property with "0" closing and waiving the deficiency judgment. From start to finish, Tara has diligently worked hard with knowledge and expertise. She is very courteous and professional.

Sold a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $150K in Scott's Addition, Richmond, VA.

Tara is an exceptional agent. She was very informative and provided me with outstanding advice throughout my short sale process. She promptly returned all phone calls and had advertising in place as soon as possible. Despite the numerous challenges that came our way Tara was able to quickly, and calmly overcome them. This only reinforced my confidence in her during a rather stressful time for me.

I am confident that the reason we were able to keep negotiations on track after numerous hurdles was due to her expertise and her exceptional ability to communicate to all parties involved. I really appreciated Tara's calm reassurance and expert advice throughout the entire process.

I whole heartedly recommend Tara to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Richmond area. She was wonderful to deal with and a consummate professional who exceeded my expectations. Tara was just the outstanding professional I needed and having her work with me made a nerve-wracking negotiation a wonderful success!
