Tara was always there for us, making phone calls, calming me down when I was stressed, and standing behind us to make sure that we had a fair deal.

She made a stressful situation bearable and I felt like she was in it with us, making sure it would all work out. It eventually did and we could not be happier. Tara did a great job and I would not hesitate to recommend her services to others. Kristi H , buyer 10/25/2013.

I've worked with many realtors over the past 30 years and Tara was by far the most thorough.

Tara was beyond helpful in negotiating. She pointed out many things my wife and I would have missed both good and bad. Tara always returned our calls promptly and handled all of our concerns quickly.

Tara Riley was a great agent for me.

We had a few bumps in the road but she was ALWAYS on top of everything. She went above and beyond all that I needed her to do and her communication was excellent. Her knowledge of the area was great and her knowledge of the relocation process was even better. If she does such a great job, I know that Baird & Warner is top notch as well!

Tara Riley was an excellent agent for the selling of my condo unit.

Since I live in Indiana and the condo unit is in Illinois, I relied on Tara to do all the work for selling the property. Tara was very professional and kept me updated with the process. She prepared a complete market analysis of my property to help me determine a fair market asking price. She provided me with suggestions and actions that would help enhance the sale of the home.

Tara was on top of everything, she was also really quick to take care of business and respond to anything we needed.

I would recommend Tara to anyone looking for a home. If we ever buy again I will call Tara first. Karl B. Dec 12, 2012.

Tara showed up well prepared with her market analysis ready at our first meeting.

We sold the house at 98% of listing at a price higher than two other brokers suggested. Tara is very personable and is able to work well with all personality types. She always went the extra mile - from purchasing a beautiful planter for the front porch to changing out a broken handle on the toilet the day before closing! She was truly a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend her.
