Trustworthy, knowledgeable and confident are the words that immediately come to mind when Tara Gallagher’s clients describe her. Skilled at navigating complex negotiations while building solid and lasting relationships, Tara’s first priority is to ensure that her clients are always secure in their decisions and ultimately happy with the end result. “The relationships that I have with my clients are of the utmost importance to me,” says Tara. “I believe that if you take care of your clients, you will be taken care of as well and that has been the secret to my success.”
Beginning her career in the high-tech industry, Tara started her career with Dell before going on to accept an exciting opportunity with Apple during a time of incredible growth for the tech giant. Armed with experience and a desire to expand her career, Tara then spent some time working as a consultant and investing in start-ups including some of today’s notable companies such as Pinterest, Square, WhatsApp and others while simultaneously competing in show jumping.
As her investing success grew, she turned her attention to real estate. While living in Silicon Valley, Tara combined her two great loves, luxury building and show jumping, and built a luxury property that included a home, horse farm and vineyard. Tara’s love of horses and the equestrian industry brought her to South Florida next where she built another horse farm. To date, Tara has invested in a variety of property types including commercial, residential and land and specializes in the luxury homes and horse farm projects across South Florida.
Originally from the Northeast, Tara grew up in Connecticut and Massachusetts before moving to Texas to attend college at Texas A&M. After graduation, Tara spent time working in Austin before moving to California’s South Bay Area where she continued her education, earning her Master’s degree from Pepperdine University in Educational Technology. Five years ago, she relocated to South Florida. Other than family and friends, Tara’s greatest passion is the sport of show jumping. Competing nationally and internationally, she is an accomplished equestrian who says, “there is nothing more incredible than the relationship shared with a horse.”
