With over 15 years of residential real estate experience, Tara brings a high level of service to her clients through the entire buying and selling process. She recognizes that a move is not always just about the house.  She listens closely to her clients to hear their needs and focuses to make the move successful in as many ways as possible.

As a Twin Cities native, Tara appreciates all that Minneapolis and the surrounding areas have to offer. After graduating from Minnetonka High School, she went on to Boston College where she earned a BA in Economics while playing for their Women’s Tennis Team. She returned to the Twin Cities area for a job with Target on their merchandising side where she enjoyed the variety of challenges with managing business units. From there she joined a family business and eventually things aligned for her career in real estate to begin. It is here that the balance of business investment and creative connection come together and energize Tara. She recognizes the importance of the financial investment with the need to find sanctuary in your space. She is committed to her clients, listening to their needs, and working endlessly to ensure they feel confident with each step.

She now lives in Wayzata with her husband and two daughters and enjoys the richness of the community. As a family, they have an incredible love of the lakes and can be found boating and sailing on most summer days.

“Tara Engebretson went above and beyond to help us sell our home. We were trying to manage an out of state move with three small children and full time jobs, so time was scarce! In addition to typical agent responsibilities, she advised us on minor pre-sale renovations, found contractors, staged our home, and helped manage and complete some projects. Without her help I doubt we would have even made it to market! One thing I appreciated in particular was her frequent communication with us throughout the process. We have sold several homes and by far this was our best experience. Thanks, Tara!”

“Tara was fantastic. We were relocating from a different state and the majority of our search was with virtual tours. Tara made sure to really understand what we were looking for, our style and the things that were most important to us. She was knowledgeable and always provided an informed perspective . She went above and beyond to help us through search, negotiation, closing and move in. We highly recommend Tara and would definitely work with her again.”
