Thoughts From Our Customers...

We came back to Florida after over a decade living all around the country and being previous home buyers. Hands down, one of the best experiences we encountered. Knew the market during Covid-19, the areas around Jacksonville in relation to our employment , and quickly adapted based on our wants/needs. Most importantly, did not rush our decision or try to oversell listings we did not want. If you are new or experienced with living in Jacksonville, I would hands down go to Nakiya for the perfect home. Extremely happy where we ended up. Nakiya went above and beyond with communication and working with other agents to ensure we ended up in the perfect home for our family.


They say it’s always better late than never and that certainly applies to this long overdue review of the amazing service my family received from Tara on our home purchase over two years ago in May of 2017. This being our first home purchase there were a lot of things we did not know about the process but Tara was able to bridge the gap due to her incredible restate knowledge. It was a pleasure to work with Tara throughout our home buying process for many reasons. To start, she always welcomed us with a friendly smile, and always conducted herself with the utmost professionalism. Whether it was researching information or giving a helping hand to my wife with our small children while doing home showings, Tara was always there to help the whole entire way. Secondly, Tara prioritized the best interest of my family, above all other factors, during this process. Tara handled all of our family’s administrative work with urgency, regardless of the price of the home that we were interested in. She offered her best professional advice without putting any pressure on my family to choose to do business with the companies she recommended. We were very impressed with the quality of communication we received. Whether in person or over the phone, Tara is someone who is truly easy to talk to, and was very attentive to our needs and concerns. This was extremely helpful for me as an active duty sailor who was away from my family during most of the buying process. Thirdly, even after closing Tara never stopped working for our family, she checked in with us frequently and offered her help with any issues we had with our home. Tara even took the initiative to reach out to our builders to help us settle a warranty claim almost a year after we closed. Her perseverance saved us thousands of dollars in that would have come out of pocket without her help. My family and I appreciate the professionalism, and kindness we received from Tara, and we would recommend her to anyone in search for a home. Thank you, Tara!

I can't say enough GREAT things about Tara. FIRST...She worked very hard for a year looking for a rental for me while I was in Cali getting ready to sell. SECOND...She interviewed and referred a Cali realtor to help me sell my home there. He sold my home in under 10 days. THIRD...once in Florida, (decided not to rent but to go straight to purchasing) Tara made it happen when she found us our forever home. If you're looking to sell our buy...I HIGHLY recommend Tara Braithwaite. She is extremely knowledgeable about anything "Realty"! You can't go wrong. J&K Miller

Tara has been the absolute best! The time and care she takes is incredible. Her knowledge of Jacksonville and ability to find a home is amazing. I can’t give a better recommendation. It’s been a blessing to work with her throughout the process.

Buying & Selling Experience

Tara was a great realtor and became a family friend. We have already planned to use her again when we sell this house. She was very patient as we looked at at least 30 houses over a weekend. We were both buying and selling through her and she made everything very easy to understand. She had a very down to earth mannerism that made me trust her without question. I knew she was not sugar coating anything with us. So we went into our listing experience knowing our house was ready to sell. We found the perfect house with her as well and were delighted with the negotiations and final sale.

Every Detail

Tara was amazing helping us find a home. We were not easy, changing our specs and looking at everything. Tara kept up and when were found the right house, she was there with us on inspections and closing. She made sure every detail was taken care of and negotiated every detail that needed to be taken care of. You could not ask for a better and more professional expert on your side.

-Curtis Zesbaugh

Tara went above and beyond for us. Always looking out for us, during every inspection, she made sure everything was taken care of. She also made sure the lender answered all the questions me and my wife had. She made sure we were absolutely happy with the house we were going to purchase. I would recommend Tara 100%. You’re going to get the best deal and the best customer service a realtor can offer.

Tara was amazing, as soon as we met we hit the ground running. She was a consummate professional while also adding that familial feel to her approach at helping me buy. She was always there if I needed her with a meticulous and detailed answer to my questions. I’d definitely do the this whole rigamarole of a process again twice over if it was her at the helm.

-Josue Henry

Quality Service

Tara helped my husband and I find and purchase our first home in 2016. We found ourselves overwhelmed with buying our first house and was extremely happy that we found Tara to guide us through the process. Six years later, we decided to sell our home and needless to say we wanted Tara's expertise and guidance. She is direct, patient, helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. She was always responsive on any questions or concerns we had (and we had a lot!). There's a high number of realtors out there, but if you want quality service then you should reach out to Tara!

Tara is an excellent realtor. She was really patient with us (we took a LONG time to choose a home) and helped us narrow down our choices. When we finally chose a home, she was great ADVOCATE on our behalf. She negotiated a better deal for us and helped us know the right questions to ask. She had references for all the various vendors you need when buying a house. All around good experience - would definitely recommend her.

Wonderful Buying Experience

Wow! I had a wonderful home buying experience with Tara. Being a first time home buyer with no clue of where to begin, Tara walked me through from start to finish. (All during a pandemic I might add! ) She was quick to respond to any questions I had along the way. She was sure to use all of her resources to help me find the perfect home for my family!

-Isha Taylor

Always Available

Tara was always available for questions. She listened to what we wanted in a home. We were moving from out of state, so while the house was being build she would go take pictures and would send them to us so we could see the progress of the house. We were very pleased with Tara as our realtor. I would recommend her to everyone.
