At First Sight Home Staging
I had an honour to get to know Tara Hearn through both her professional work as a Royal Lepage Realtor and her community involvement. I was deeply impressed with her personal participation during the home staging consultation I provided for her seller. She took the time and every effort to make sure her client was comfortable with my suggestions and that every little detail was taken care of, in order to achieve best possible results for the presentation of the property while paying special attention to the needs and emotions of the seller.
I was also involved in a fundraising project that Tara organized recently. Her passion for the community, for helping people in need, and all the energy she puts into her charity work is unlimited. She inspired lots of women small business owners to get involved on different levels and the event was a huge success.
I cannot recommend Tara high enough. If you are looking for a realtor who will do the absolute best for you, Tara Hearn is the one.
My husband and I met Tara thru a viewing at a home she had listed.
Tara was friendly and knowledgeable about the different neighborhoods in Victoria and very professional, so we chose Tara to assist us in finding a home for our daughter and her family, that were moving to the island from out east. Tara was very patient and showed us many homes without ever making us feel any pressure to purchase. We did find THE home for our kids and Tara made the whole purchase process very easy and stress free, facilitating responses to any questions that came up from our lawyer and mortgager. It was a pleasure working with Tara. Thank you for a job well done in getting our kids their new home.
Tara Hearn is an energetic professional who gets the job done. Her passion for style and design plays a critical role in helping match her clients' tastes with the perfect home. If you are thinking of selling, Tara is a fantastic resource to make your home sale-ready as she has a sharp eye for balance and aesthetic appeal. Her life-long interaction in the Victoria community and her outgoing friendly nature are why she has such a wide network and sound connection in Victoria and area.
Tara Hearn is a dynamic, highly trustworthy, and extremely hardworking professional. I've worked with her and known her for over 20 years, and can't recommend her enough! Tara and I worked together in the field of educational consulting in Victoria, B.C. During our professional association, she proved herself to be an innovative thinker and leader. She sets herself apart from other professionals in her energy and willingness to work tirelessly to see a job through to its completion.
Tara always listened to our needs and found properties matching our wish list in our budget. As potential first time buyers we had many question and Tara took the time to clarify things for us, she was really patient. She has energy, knowledge and passion for what she does : helping you sell or buy your house.
Our move was a military move and we had ONE WEEK to buy a house. Tara pulled this off flawlessly, even considering the house was a foreclosure and we had to go through the courts! She made our house buying experience as least stressful as possible. And for me number one reason I would use her again is her personality! She is so funny and kind.
Tara is extremely hard working and honest. She'll spend the time with you so she can meet your real estate needs, and be honest in her appraisals of your home. I highly recommend Tara.

I really appreciate all the advice on the kitchen. I wonder if people like you, who can just look at a room and within minutes come up with so many fabulous ideas, know just how much the rest of us just watch with envy when you go into action like that. Your input was just what we needed to get the online plan prepped for tomorrow and to get me satisfied that our choices are good ones. I think we took all of your advice and I'm getting excited about finally having a kitchen, though it will take several months before it is finished.
We did try going to Ikea once before and ended up just leaving after several hours because we were too bewildered by too many options. I feel much better prepared this time, thanks to you--that's a real gift you have. No doubt your design sense will serve you really, really well in the real estate business. I wish I'd had a realtor with as much of your talent for any one of the many places we've bought over the years. And we'll certainly let you know the next time we're buying or selling anything.
Thanks again. A lot.”
