About Me

I'm proud to call Lake Tahoe home since 1998, and I'm deeply committed to our wonderful community. I genuinely enjoy helping people purchase homes in our area so they can continue to enjoy our unique lifestyle.

To me, the home loan process is more than just a transaction, it's the foundation of a trusted relationship. You can rest assured that your loan is in capable hands, thanks to my attention to detail and ongoing communication throughout the entire process. In addition to our phone conversations, I'll keep you informed with real-time status emails, ensuring you're always in the loop as we reach key milestones in your transaction.

The highest compliment I can receive is when you tell your friends and family about my services. It shows that the hard work and dedication I put into every client relationship are appreciated.

When I'm not working, you'll find me enjoying the outdoors—rock climbing, skiing, or exploring the mountains with my husband Todd, our daughter Olive, and our dog Spot.

Thank you for considering me as your partner in achieving your dream of owning a home. Your trust means a lot, and I'm here to help you every step of the way.

Working with Tara was a pleasure. We hadn’t bought a home for about 33 years so we had lots of questions which Tara handled professional and she was always there for us, no matter the day of week or hour.

My husband and I worked with Tara on the purchase of our first home. Tara was knowledgeable throughout the process and helped us to advocate for the best options. Tara is intelligent and trustworthy. I knew we were in good hands!! Thank you Tara!

I had the best experience working with Tara on my loan. This is the 4th property that I’ve purchased and hands down the best experience I’ve had working with any lender previously, and I had a few great ones prior. I’m thrilled with both the loan products that Guild offered me. Tara made the process just awesome overall. I will be using it again, and referring some close friends. I’m so happy my realtor recommended I connect with her, even though I already had another lender in mind for this property. Thank you, Tara and Team!

We recently had the pleasure to work with Tara... From start to finish, Tara guided us through the process and made the transaction feel effortless! Her knowledge of the business and the work she provided are un matched! I cannot say enough great things about our experience with her. Do not think twice about working with Tara and Guild!
