Not yet 35, Tara Bowles McMeans is both an attorney and a highly successful Realtor: a Heritage Texas Top Producer in 2015 and 2016 and the number-one listing agent at Austin's Capitol Area Realty before she moved to Houston in 2009.

Comprehensive market research, innovative marketing ideas and steadfast negotiations are the keys to Tara's success with sellers. "I also enjoy working with homebuyers and pinpointing market opportunities that will place them in a positive market position now, while purchasing, but also in the future," she says. Helping her clients make educated, forward-thinking investment decisions, based on rigorous, dogged research, brings Tara satisfaction day-in and day-out. To quote Wayne Gretzky, Tara chooses to "skate to where the puck is going, not to where it is" when analyzing the potential future consequences of each real estate opportunity for her clients.

Tara dove headfirst into real estate sales at the age of 22. "Entering the industry at a young age forced me to learn this business and how to successfully advocate for my clients," she says. At law school, she picked up a legal education that changed the way she viewed business transactions. "I learned the importance of not only being well-prepared and on top of the market, but to also protect my clients from unnecessary liability and poor business decisions," she says. "My real estate sales expertise coupled with my legal experience gives me an edge that benefits my clients in many ways."

Reliability is Tara's watchword. "My word is always good. If I say I'm going to do something, it gets done. At the end of the day, you can sell more houses than anyone else, but if your word can't be trusted, it means nothing. I want my clients to know that, above anything else, I am honest and trustworthy. Additionally, my clients know that I am very confident and will not back down from any business situation that benefits their goals and aspirations."

Married in 2016, Tara and her husband, Mason, enjoy home renovation, design projects, exercise, and trying new restaurants. They have 2 very opposite dogs: a 20 pound poodle (Baxter) and a big brown lab (Levee) who they enjoy laughing at while watching them interact. Tara's passions in life are her family and her real estate career and she lives each day with a thankful and positive disposition for each opportunity that comes her way.

Tara is a joy to work with!

I would highly recommend Tara to anyone that is needing to buy or sell their home. Tara is very responsive and always available. Her experience as an attorney will be a tremendous asset as it sets her above the competition. I look forward to getting her help in the future when I decide to buy and sell again.

She made our experience the absolute best. When we are in need for another house she will be our realtor and we tell everyone how great she is.

I liked Tara. Thought she did a good job guiding through the process. The only quibble is that it seems we came out way high for a 2-bedroom in the market, and there were a couple of times where I felt like I was an update vacuum- but overall no real complaints.

Tara helped us to close the deal quickly and managed to negotiate the extra requirements we asked for. We are satisfied with her services to find a home to rent in Sugar Land.

I had an extremely positive experience with Tara in searching for an apartment home to rent and would recommend her services to anyone looking for an experienced, trustworthy, caring and dedicated professional. Not only was Tara always very prompt in responding to all of my questions and requests but she contributed very valuable professional insights and opinions throughout the process. Tara was invaluable in organizing my search, offering educated opinions and market insights as requested and negotiating with leasing professionals. Without her help and guidance I would not have found the apartment home that I did and love!

My husband and I recently relocated from the Dallas area and we had the pleasure of working with Tara in our home search. She was very professional, punctional, and always gave us honest feedback. We always felt in safe hands and couldn't be happier with the service received. We love our home and we adore our agent!

I had the pleasure of working with Tara when she was still in Austin. Being an out of state investor, Tara made my business partners and I feel like we literally had a partner on the ground in Austin. She went above and beyond to keep us informed of both positive and negative shifts in the market, yet didn't throw a tidal wave of information at us, that wasn't needed. Always the professional, I would gladly recommend Tara, and would without question, work with her again.

Tara is superb! We found her after our house was listed for 3 months with other agent (had 35+ showings with excellent feedback but no offers). Tara prepared a customized marketing plan that was perfect for the property and addressed all our previous concerns in terms of communication and customer service. We sold the house in days! She also provided invaluable support during the negotiations with the buyers and made the whole process stress-free! We highly recommend her. Please at least contact her if you are looking for an agent in the area. You won't regret it!

Tara is an amazing agent! She listened and cared for our needs to help us find the perfect home. Also, she answered all of our questions in seconds. You will not find anyone as knowledgeable about the Houston area! We strongly recommend her!

Tara was sensitive and kind through a fast process to purchase this home. She was completely attentive and professional. I would be happy to recommend her without reservations.

Tara is very knowledgeable with the market and trends. She is quick to reply to email and phone calls by always keeping the lines of communication open. She was able to answer many questions and provide information with the process of selling our home. She was there every step of the way. Also had great photos taken to really highlight the house. I would highly recommend her to friends and family.

Tara is an amazing Realtor. We started working with her in November 2014 and did not buy a house until August 2015; which she helped negotiate below the asking price - on a brand new build in EaDo. She worked with us as my mind kept changing, and was super patient throughout it all. By patient, I mean really patient.. the house we ended up buying, we looked at five times in just a few months. She has no qualms about seeing as many homes as you want to. I'm pretty sure we looked at 10+ homes one day, in the hottest heat of the summer! If there is something about a house you want to know, she will find out. I have recommended her to a handful of friends and co-workers and will continue to do so. After we bought, she made sure everything was still going well, checked-in, etc. She doesn't leave you "after the sale is made."
