Tara Taylor

Tara Taylor

Tara Taylor is a highly experienced real estate agent with The Laffins Real Estate Team at Remax in Chico, California. She grew up in Lafayette, Indiana, a Midwest girl with a thing for sales inherited from her father.

After graduating from Indiana University, she set her sights on building a life and career in Northern California. She knew immediately that Chico would be her hometown. In those early years, she would call home often telling her mom she could imagine nothing better than having her own Chico charmer and helping others do the same.

Tara launched her real estate career in 2008. An ten-year industry veteran, she’s built a solid client foundation in traditional sales, distressed property sales, REO and working with buyers/sellers of local properties. Tara prides herself in being a determined advocate for all her clients. She’s efficient, tenacious, and Chico-hearted.

When she’s not busy bringing peace of mind to her clients, you’ll find her out hiking Bidwell Park, enjoying a glass of wine with friends, dancing at The Big Room with her husband, or throwing a ball to her labs, Saber and River.
