Meet Tara Chapman

Tara has been serving the real estate needs of families in Charleston since 1997.  Mother, Instructor, Mentor and Volunteer, Tara's passion is in all things related to home.  However, if it were feasible, she would live in a screened house complete with a bed swing, outdoor fireplace, shower and kitchen.

Instead, she recently fulfilled a bucket list dream and completely renovated a mid century brick ranch.  The smallest home she has lived in, it has special meaning to her as it was the first home she has ever owned on her own.  Her home represents setting a goal, strategic planning, patience, perseverance and determination. 

Tara has an eye for opportunity and improvement and enjoys helping her clients with vision to find and create their dream home, regardless of their budget or neighborhood.  Her vast experience in many facets of real estate, and particularly her decade of sales on-site at the award winning neighborhood of I'On, give her a keen eye for good design and improved marketability of a home.

Tara recently graduated from the Divorce Real Estate Institute's exclusive and in-depth master level training led by family law attorneys, judges and divorce real estate experts.  The program is a significant financial investment that requires an intensive year-long training. She is the only Realtor in the Southeast to hold this prestigious designation.  Tara is committed to making a difference for divorcing couples in the Charleston Tri-County area.

Whether boating, biking, kayaking, hiking, beach walking or digging in the dirt, Tara is happiest in the outdoors.  She considers herself a personal growth junkie and enjoys good food and wine, reading and writing, spending time with her mini labradoodle, yoga, meeting new people, helping inspire others and adventure travel.  

With her oldest daughter in college and her youngest months away,  she is embracing a new chapter of life.
