I am a full time Realtor® with TM5 Properties. For the last 14 years I have used my expertise in real estate to assist numerous home buyers and home sellers with their biggest investment – their homes. In addition to having a broker’s license, I hold specialized certifications as both a buyer and seller representative and I am a Graduate of the Realtor® Institute. What this means to you is that I continually hone my skills and educate myself so I can deliver the best possible service to my clients.
My favorite transactions are with first time home buyers and first time home sellers. I like to be able to take what can be a very stressful event and break it down into manageable portions all the while sharing my knowledge of real estate with them.
My goal for each of my transactions is to end up with a client for life who raves about me to their family and friends.
My professional career has included an interesting mix of customer service and technical expertise in three industries: Banking, Software, and Real Estate. The common thread throughout my career has been my dedication to providing excellent customer service.
I am the kind of person who engenders trust, earns loyalty and endears myself to my clients by being myself. I am very organized and always available and open to answering questions. I don’t think twice about going the extra mile for my clients. My negotiating skills and my interest in getting the very best for my clients sets me apart from the rest.
My family and I have moved quite a bit – six times in the last 18 years including two cross-country moves! I know firsthand the challenges and stresses involved in buying or selling a home and relocating to a new area. I am ready to help ensure that things go as smoothly as possible throughout the process.
A native of New York, I followed my heart to Central Texas in 1984. I have been married to my husband Randall for 25 plus years and we have two daughters, Dana, and Erica. I earned my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Economics and French from Iona College in NY. I am a member of the Bryan-College Station Regional Association of Realtors, the Texas Association of Realtors, and the National Association of Realtors. I served as president of the Stone Forest Owners Association and founder/leader of the Stone Forest Ladies Book Club.
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 and Ben Urbanczyk
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
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
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
Tara was a wonderful agent that was fun and easy to work with, yet very professional. She found us the house that we wanted and guided us through to entire process, being first time home buyers. She has the experience and attitude you want in anybody working for you!Kyle Mangan
Tara assisted my husband and me in the purchase of our very first home in College Station. Not only did she work as hard as possible to ensure we had a smooth transaction, she made sure we were educated throughout the process. Tara was patient with us, answered all of our questions, and most importantly she always looked out for our best interest. We could not be more thankful to have been represented by a Realtor who has so much knowledge and experience -- two traits that certainly are invaluable in real estate!!Morgan Mangan
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
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 L. 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
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!
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.
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.
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!
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.
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!
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.
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.
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 A.
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 TaraRobert and Mary Ann Simpson
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 was amazing during the sale of our house! Highly recommend her!!Michelle Mims
Tara is very knowledgeable, dedicated, and professional. She made our house-hunting, home-buying experience easy and enjoyable! Highly recommend her!Kathy Betts
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
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 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 C.
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 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 with out schedules. We couldn't have asked for a better realtor.Dawn Mangum
When making such a large decision, I wanted to work with someone that I could trust and the universe sent me Tara BranhamL. Kerr
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. She has always answered every call or email no matter what time of day or night it was. Her professionalism, mentorship, knowledge, honesty, and hard work ethic are much respected and appreciated. I never felt that she was just trying to sell my house, but that she was a mentor to answer my questions and help me to make the best decision for my LIFE.
I now consider Tara a friend and would highly recommend her to anyone that is selling their house or searching for a new home. Thanks again to Tara Branham, for being such a pleasure to work with.
Thank you, Tara Branham, for helping us find a home!
My brother referred Tara to me, and I am so glad! As a busy business owner in a time of huge (positive but hectic) transition for our family, I needed someone who could help us find the perfect house, in our budget, and in a specific area of town. Tara helped us get that house! I love that she has the heart of a teacher and a servant--she answered so many questions and guided us through the entire process. It was obvious to my husband and me from the very first time we met Tara that she would be an awesome advocate for us--helping us make informed decisions.
I would definitely recommend Tara and TM5 Properties to anyone buying or selling a home.Erin Casey
My wife and I decided to sell our home after the last of our nine children graduated from high school. We had met Tara Branham from our church several years earlier. After we decided to sell our home, we began consulting with her on an informal basis about how to improve our home and stage it so as to receive maximum results. She was very helpful in assisting us with many excellent ideas and strategies.Dennis and Sheri Molchak
When it came time to list our home with an agency, we interviewed a total of five different agents representing the top agencies in College Station. Tara shined above them all with her professionalism, high standards, and her personal involvement.
In retrospect, Tara was an outstanding agent who communicated well and always "had our back". She could have done nothing better. My wife and I would give her 5 stars and would wholeheartedly recommend Tara to all our friends and family.
Tara was a champion for our family when we searched for a home in the College Station/Bryan community in April of 2018. I highly recommend Tara and TM5 Properties, in fact, I give Tara 5 stars out of 5 for her professionalism, kindness, and fierce advocacy to assure that we purchased the right property for the right price. Choose Tara!Nancy Fahrenwald
Nice job Tara Branham ! We had a complicated situation back and forth over many months prior to finding "the" home for us. Thank you for being so patient and helpful.Carl Fahrenwald
We strongly recommend Tara Branham as a realtor. Tara is forthright, trustworthy, caring, and most importantly very knowledgeable of the Brazos Valley market. Selling our home and leaving the area was a difficult decision for our family. Choosing Tara, as our realtor, was an easy decision. She's amazing every step of the process. Choose Tara, she will get it done.Stephanie Adams
I recently moved to Bryan-College Station not knowing the area at all. I got connected with Tara Branham at TM5 and she was fantastic! She knew the area and market very well and really focused on what we were looking for while searching for a home.Kevin Orr
I highly recommend Tara if you are looking for a realtor with knowledge of the area and who is willing to go above and beyond for you.
My wife and I worked with Tara at TM5 and from day one, we knew we had found the right realtor for us. We followed all the steps she laid out for us in selling our home and in less than 24hrs after our home was placed on the market it had a contract on it. Tara is an all around awesome person and realtor and we will definitely use her again for our home buying or selling needs. We then turned to Brittany at TM5 in our search for a rental property as we were between houses. She found us the right place for the right price and walked us through the rental process. I couldn’t have asked for a smoother or better experience from TM5 realtors. I can’t recommend them enough.Russell Meier
It was a joy to work with Tara at TM5!!! I knew from day one she was going to be my realtor! Not only is she a great realtor, she is a kind person with a big heart! As a first time home buyer she made the process very easy and explained everything along the way! I never had any doubts and felt confident throughout the whole process! I can honestly say everything was very easy! She is professional, efficient, and treats her clients like they are family! Not only was my home buying experience exceptional, but I feel like I met a lifelong friend as well! Thank you Tara for everything!!Kristen Gover
We are so grateful for Tara at TM5. She helped us sell our first home of 12 years quickly, and guided us to our new home! Tara was very punctual when getting back with us on any information on both homes! She always had our best interest at heart, and I would highly recommend her!Rebekah Collier
Tara Branham at TM5 was an outstanding realtor. She is very knowledgeable about the area and she spent a large amount of time listening to and understanding what we wanted in a new house. She went above and beyond the call of duty in helping us through the process of purchasing the house and moving in which was important since we were moving from out-of-town. I would recommend her highly to anyone looking to buy a new home.Carol Fierke
Tara Branham is experienced, tenacious, and thoughtful; far too fantastic for just 5 stars, so mark us down for 5 times 500 stars! We were a particular challenge on account of our (1) having to sell one house to purchase another, (2) wanting to move from the dynamic southside of College Station to the country, within commuting distance AND within our rather insignificant budget, and (3) being self-employed, which made lending all the more tenuous.
With lightening speed, Tara researched the market for selling our house and provided us with several options to pursue. We followed her instructions explicitly and delighted in a quick and painless sell. Meanwhile, Tara drove us all over the surrounding counties to view rustic homes that met our desires. She brought along not only folders with information about the properties, notepad, and pen; but also a cooler full of juices and snacks. She even thought to stow away cold packs for us! Such is exemplary of Tara’s extraordinary attention to detail throughout the ordeal of buying and selling. Tara was on the team, in our corner, working toward close.
If ever we opt to move again, we’ll beg and plead for Tara Branham to be our realtor!Stacy Collard
