Certified Relocation Specialist

What's your background, education and training?

Boston College B.S. in Finance. Member of the Massachusetts Board of Realtors and National Association of Realtors. I have been in real estate for the past 15+ years working with first time homebuyers and sellers, High end properties, investment properties, downsizes and families relocating from other areas of the country.

What is your typical process for working with a new client?

When I first start working with a new client it’s a good idea to get a feel for what they are looking for by setting up a time to meet, see a few houses that represent the different price points and styles and discuss the pros and cons of each house. From that point on I will keep that client abreast of any new listings and schedule times to view homes and continue our dialogue of feedback so I can best serve them.

What advice would you give a client looking to find a provider in your specialty?

Find and experienced agent that you are comfortable with. During a transaction experience matters. That goes for buyers and sellers. You must be able to work well together and have open communication and trust. Your agent should never pressure you into a deal you aren't totally comfortable with.

What inspired your passion for your profession?

I am a second generation realtor so it’s a profession I grew up with. I love personally helping people navigate such a large and personal decision of buying a home and with my finance background, being able to advise them in that capacity, I feel that real estate suits me well. I am lucky to be one of those people that honestly likes going to work every day.

What services are you most excited to offer?

My years of experience and volume of sales allow me to offer strong value data/market knowledge, deal experience, understanding of the process, strong negotiating skills and solid advice. For sellers in particular, not only do I provide complementary staging services to help them fill in some design gaps or more extensive staging as needed, but also an in-house marketing team, dedicated solely to my clients, to provide an individualized strategy to selling their home.

What is the best reaction you’ve ever received from a client?

I’ve gotten some very nice reactions from clients when I visit them post closing and they show me around the house and I see how happy they are and I have gotten some very thoughtful and kind remarks from clients that are selling a home in an estate or distressed situation. The gratitude they feel knowing I can take a lot off their plate during such an emotional time and the relief they feel. That’s a good feeling for me.

How many years have you been in business?

15+ years

What do clients have to say about you?

"Tara is an absolute pro! Far and away the best realtor we have ever worked with. She was extremely responsive throughout our entire search and she knows the Hingham area extremely well. We never once felt pressured to rush or make a decision we weren’t comfortable with. Tara was an incredible source of knowledge and advice throughout the entire process and continues to help out with recommendations and advice to help us settle in post-close. Can’t say enough positive things about our experience with her - we highly recommend Tara!!"

"I cannot state this aggressively enough: Tara Coveney is the best. Pure and simple and without hyperbole. She is educated on the market, well-connected and incredibly savvy. Our process was not easy (nor was it short) and she remained committed to us every step of the way. Always put us first. No request was too large. Incredibly committed and hard-working. Really took the time to get to know my wife and I and thoroughly understood what we were looking for. Incredible attention to detail. Truly a great person as well. Her associate, Susan, maintains all of the same qualities / strengths."

"Tara recently helped us buy and sell homes and we couldn’t have been happier. We knew by her reputation that she was one of the best realtors on the south shore, but she absolutely exceeded our expectations. She really took the time to understand our needs and helped us find the perfect home for our family. She has an in depth knowledge of the marketplace and we were extremely happy to have her on our side during the negotiation process. We are so thankful to have worked with Tara and would recommend her without any reservation!"
