What my clients are saying
Whether you are buying or selling, Tara is the go to Realtor in the B/CS area. Always professional, always willing to go above & beyond - she gives you her all.
~ Christine McDonald
When making such a large decision, I wanted to work with someone that I could trust and the universe sent me Tara Branham. I can't speak highly enough of my experience with Tara Branham. Mrs. Branham was my selling agent as well as my buying agent. I am a first-time home seller/ home buyer with very little knowledge about how the process worked. I met with one realtor before I met Tara, but talk about good KARMA… I met Tara and I knew instantly that she was the one for me. She is honest and hands-on (she even put up with my stinky old animals!), and she really helped to take the pressure off of me. I never felt forced to make an offer or to accept an offer on the house I was selling or the house I was buying. Tara walked me through every step of the negotiations on both the sell and buy. I was amazed at how fast my house sold.Tara has been there every step of the way. Her professionalism, mentorship, knowledge, honesty, and hard work ethic are much respected and appreciated.
~ Leah Kerr
We absolutely loved working with TM5 Properties! Tara Branham was excellent and work her hardest to find the house that we would love, and she DID IT! Being first time buyers we had no idea the how complicated the questions could be and everything that needed to be considered. Tara helped us through the whole process and made everything so easy and enjoyable. She was prompt in getting back to us and more than willing to work without schedules. We couldn't have asked for a better realtor.
~ Dawn Cote
We had a GREAT experience with Tara Branham. I feel like I gained a great friend through our house-buying process. She is full of great advice about real estate and College Station. I highly recommend her.
~ Betsy Guin
We worked with Tara to buy a new home as well as sell our old home and she made both experiences so awesomely smooth! We love all the hard work she put in behind the scenes to make it all happen! Thank you so much!!!
~ Audrey Dwyer
Tara Branham is a real estate pro! We've dealt with many realtors in different markets over the years, and our dealings with Tara have been among the smoothest we've ever experienced. Why? Because she communicates throughout the process and shares her wealth of knowledge and experience along the way. We highly recommend Tara to anyone desiring a hassle free home buying or selling experience. We wouldn't deal with anyone else!
~ Brett Smith
Tara is very professional and very personable. Her experience. knowledge of the market and her marketing plan to sell the house immediately provided a positive result. Bottom line, she did a great job, Thanks Tara
~ Bob Simpson
Tara is very knowledgeable, pro-active, and a great people-person. She did a lot of research and helped us explore every possibility when she helped us find a house to buy during a stressful time in our lives. She also took care of all the details when we were selling our home.
~ Margaret Clark
Tara is very knowledgeable, dedicated, and professional. She made our house-hunting, home-buying experience easy and enjoyable! Highly recommend her.
~ Kathy Betts
Tara Branham did a fabulous job as a realtor for us. Always there when we had any questions. Very professional and courteous. On a scale of 1 to 5. All 5s!!!!
~ Olga and Joe Valadez
My fiance and I are first time home buyers. Not only did Tara guide us through every bit of the process but she did so with gusto. She was always available and ready to answer any questions we had, even after the sale. She was attentive to details of each home and was extremely knowledgeable about the houses and areas that we looked at. We loved working with her and will continue to use Tara and TM5 Properties for any of our home buying or selling needs!
~ Ashton Drollinger
Tara goes out of her way to help you and always makes you feel like you are her only client. She is honest, informative, and has only your interest in mind which makes the home buying process less stressful and so much easier. We were under an extremely tight deadline, and thanks to Tara, we were able to house hunt, negotiate a contract, and close on our home in only 3 weeks time! I doubt we would have been able to do this with any other agent.
~ Jennifer Onica
Tara was amazing during the sale of our house! Highly recommend her!!
~ Michelle Mims
Words cannot express how thankful we were to have Tara as our real estate agent! In addition to being first time home buyers, we were also relocating from out of state. Her intimate knowledge of the area and understanding of our needs as a young family made selecting the perfect house an easy task. The more difficult hurdle for us was getting set up with a mortgage as first time home buyers relocating from out of state. However, thanks to Tara's guidance and dedication, we were able to secure our mortgage and close on time (very important when moving a family from another state to a place where you have no connections). She maintained contact with us during the very long loan application process and we always had the confidence that Tara "had our back." She's not only an amazing real estate agent, she is an amazing person. If you choose Tara as your agent, you won’t regret it!
~ Amy Alge
Tara Branham is among the very best of several real estate agents with whom I have worked. I have purchased ten homes and sold seven. In College Station, Tara helped me find the ideal home for my daughter and her family at a fair price. When it came time to sell, the market was depressed and she helped us find good tenants so that we could wait for market recovery. It is now time to put it back on the market and she is giving us good advice on preparing it for sale. She is a good listener who tailors her excellent advice to the needs of her clients. I have never worked with a more helpful professional.
~ Joe Stafford
Tara helped me and my wife buy our first home a couple of months ago. She made everything seem so easy! Tara and my relationship goes back to 2007 when I first decided that I was going to buy a home as soon as I was discharged from the military. Things happened and I ended up staying in the service until 2011. Tara stayed in contact with me this entire time. In 2008 I made a promise to Tara that I would buy my first home from her regardless of when it was. Tara continued to believe my promise to her and finally in June of this year I was able to fulfill my promise. I will not use any other agent as long as Tara is around. She takes the time to invest in each of her clients. I highly recommend Tara to anyone looking to buy or sell a house. She will take care of you just like she did me. I cannot stress how easy she made the home buying process for us. I will never be able to thank Tara enough for her hard work and dedication to my family.
~ Dustin Robertson
We moved from out of town and had one weekend to find and purchase a home in a very low inventory market. We came into town on a Friday -- Tara had all the houses lined up and we made an offer Saturday. Unfortunately, someone else made an offer right before us, but Tara came to the rescue and showed us one more house on Sunday morning and we closed 25 days later! She was so much fun to work with and honestly had our best interest at heart. Thank you Tara!
~ Courtney Boring
If you are looking to buy or sale property, look no further than this page! I bought a house in the Bryan/College Station about 10 years ago with the help of Tara. When it came time to sell my home this past year I called Tara again. She is not just my Realtor, she has become my friend. The buying/selling process can be trying, but Tara is very knowledgable and caring. She went over and beyond to close both deals. You will be in trusted hands with Tara!
~ Mandy Holleman
My wife and I recently sold our home, and I am glad that I went with Tara Branham and TM5 Properties. Tara found a buyer for our home within two weeks after it was listed! It is clear through her enthusiasm and professionalism that Tara loves her job, and she did everything possible to make what could have been a difficult process, a smooth transaction. I look forward to doing business with Tara and TM5 in the future!
~ James Stultz
Buying a property in College Station is tough enough. But finding the RIGHT PROPERTY, in the RIGHT NEIGHBORHOOD, at the RIGHT PRICE is virtually impossible in today's extremely competitive real estate market at A&M. There would have been NO WAY for me to achieve all of the above without the timely, professional and personal assistance of Tara Branham. All I can say is 'Gig 'Em, Tara' and you are the TAMU real estate queen in my marketing book!
~ Mike Malley
This was our first house sell and Tara has set a standard for us that I'm not sure any future realtor will be able to meet. She was incredible friendly. She had wonderful tips and thoughts on how to get our home sold fast. Tara was always quick to respond to texts and calls. She kept us well informed throughout the process and in the end we sold our house faster than we expected for the amount we wanted. I could not recommend her enough! If you're looking for a realtor, she's the one to call.
~ Kelsey Hurych
Tara is AWESOME!! If you are looking for a realtor that is knowledgeable of the Bryan-College Station market and the ins and outs of home selling, Tara would be your best choice...hands down! She is enthusiastic and extremely resourceful. Her plan of action left no stone unturned, making the entire process (listing, staging, marketing and closing) a breeze. She is the nicest and most considerate person you can have on your side when making a big decision to sell your home. You cannot hold a candle to the dedication she had for our family and the entire home selling process. We were so lucky to have had Tara there for us.
~ Cris and Marie Schwartz
Tara was always available and so knowledgeable about all questions or concerns we had about purchasing a home. We ran into a few road blocks but Tara helped us navigate them and we got into the home we loved. She knows that BCS area well and truly had our best interest in mind while we were looking at homes and when we decided on making an offer. And besides all of that she is just a joy to be around!
~ Stacey Urbanczyk
Very helpful, she knows her stuff and could have the answer for you the same day. Tara is a really good people person to anybody she meets and that's what I liked about her. I felt like I knew her my whole life.
~ Craig Darnell
If you want someone you can trust; someone who will work hard for your best interest; someone who will listen and understand your needs; Tara is your best bet. My husband and I love our new home and Tara is the reason. We would and have referred others to Tara as our realtor of choice. Both of us are grateful we had Tara Branham as our realtor. We are newcomers to the area and feel very fortunate to have found Tara. She truly is a gem.
~ Ramona and Don Jones
Tara helped me sell my house. She gave wonderful, sound advice. She knows the market, and worked to maximize my return.
I can't wait to work with her again!
~ Laura Gonzalez
Tara helped us sell our home and buy our new one. She was so patient and narrowed our search so we didn't spend countless hours looking at properties that were not in our budget or did not meet our specifications. She was very quick to respond. We truly enjoyed working with her and would recommend her without reservation.
