Tara is very hard working and very personable - she has good communication skills and keeps you informed every step along the way. I would recommend her services to anyone interested in selling a property on the north coast.

When Matt and I wanted to sell our house, we knew we wanted someone we trusted. We needed a firm opinion of our house's worth, we needed the house sold quickly and we needed help to buff it into shape before sale. We trusted Tara, having bought our property from her a few years earlier and really appreciated the way she kept in touch with us during that time. Being a small town, we would bump into Tara occasionally and she would always have a ready smile and easy conversation. In short, Tara is a consummate professional. She is a great communicator. Tara gave us great advice, a firm opinion of our property's worth and put us in touch with a fabulous team of people who helped us get our house ready for sale. Our house sold in the first week of the campaign, and we got exactly what we wanted. We can't recommend Tara highly enough - whether you're buying or selling.

We recently sold our property with First National using Tara Torkkola. I would absolutely have no hesitation using Tara as she was refreshingly enthusiastic from day one, keeping us up to date and well informed on a regular basis, this was a particularly big contrast to the original agent that we had listed the property with, who rarely ever called us and really showed very little interest, in fact we had to chase him up, which wasn’t easy as we live interstate. As I said Tara showed enormous enthusiasm along with her vast local knowledge, her ability to listen to our concerns and respond intelligently at all times, ensured a great result for us due to her negotiation. I do believe she will go a long way in her chosen career.
