Education is the Key to your New Home

My name is Tara Hansen. I’m a professional real estate agent with experience working with the intricacies of educating my clients on the buying and/or selling process, making sure all options are discussed but letting the client make choices that are right for them.  As a former teacher I firmly believe being educated is the foundation of making good decisions.  I make sure that my clients have a thorough understanding of the buying and selling process as well as current market trends so that they can make sound decisions with their largest investment…a place to call home. Whether buying or selling, I treat all of my clients with honesty and integrity throughout the transaction and beyond. 

Outside of work, my husband of 23 years and I enjoy watching our two youngest children participate in sports (football, wrestling, and track) at Appleton North. Our oldest is a student at the University of Wisconsin La Crosse.  Our household is rounded out with our dog Summer, a chihuahua terrier mix, and our cat Lily. I also enjoy reading, yoga, boating, worshiping at Faith Lutheran Church and exploring different area supper clubs with good friends. I am very engaged in the Appleton schools parent organizations and even donate a portion of my commission to the schools when I close a transaction with a school district employee.

I don’t sell houses; I find the right home.  Let me find it for you!

 What clients are saying:

Being from out of state, Tara did several virtual showings for us and was a great tour guide. We even put an offer on one of the houses, but it wasn’t accepted. She was great at communicating with us and making sure everything ran smoothly.

Tara went above and beyond. I was still recovering from foot surgery when it was time for out house hunting trip. Tara located crutches for me to use when we were here for our house hunting trip and ran by a local store to pick up another home health care item for me to use while we were here. Knowing that those two items were taken care of prior to our flight from GA to WI was reassuring to me.

Hopefully we won’t move for a long time, but if we did, we would use Tara again. This is our 5th move in 15 years and my husband and I both agreed that Tara is the best realtor we’ve ever used. -Luis and Lori (buyer)

Tara is the best! She was always there for us at every step of the process. She understood our family’s needs, and she went above and beyond to find our dream home. We cannot recommend Tara highly enough!-Kyle and Ashley Siegrist (buyer/new construction)

Tara Hansen was referred to me by a lifelong friend! Sale of the property met with unforeseen circumstances and Tara did a fantastic job working through the difficulties we faced. Tara was very empathetic, professional, courteous, and prompt throughout the entire process. We appreciate all her hard work and dedication as we were working through several family tragedies at the same time. -Marc Quaintance (buyer and seller)
