So here's a collection of what some of you have to say about us, and our website…
I am proud to recommend Tara Rosen as one of the best real estate representatives in your market. Sincerely, Mark Powell Founder & CEO, HouseValues & JustListed
I met Tara (unfortunately), at not a very good milestone in my life as I was going through a divorce.
Tara came and carefully walked with us through our house and was very succinct about what we needed to do to get our house sold for top dollar. You could tell that as her client, you were in good hands.
When we were ready to sell, she was there, and well prepared with comparisons of other houses sold in our area. She carefully walked us through all the paperwork and made sure we understood what everything meant. Nothing was a surprise when we listed and had people come to present the offer. It was abundantly clear that she was there to make sure that she was representing our interests.
She is a straight shooter and she made an otherwise stressful situation as easy as it could possibly be.
I think my nick name for her is going to be barracuda!
The thing that I think I appreciated most was when she was with you and her cell phone rang, she didn't interrupt the conversation to answer the phone. It was clear that you were her focus at that time.
I'm about to embark on purchasing my new home and I know that Tara will guide me to ensure that I get the house that is going to fit me at this new chapter in my life.
What a truly wonderful experience we had dealing with Tara Rosen.
After helping us find our first house about 2 years ago, we were excited to approach her again when we found out our family was expanding and we wanted to move to a bigger house! She made selling our house easy and stress free (it sold in 36 hours!) and helped us to find a new house, assisting us every step of the way.
I cannot even imagine dealing with anything in real estate without dealing with Tara Rosen!
Melissa Jones and Ryan Peek
Thank you for all your hard work in selling our house! We really appreciate it! We not only have a trusted Realtor, but a great friend!
Love Jeff & Bre
We are so grateful for you helping us. You've done a fantastic job for us and we are so appreciative of you being there for us every step of the way.
You will forever be a part of this great memory
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!! Amanda Hurley & Elson Yeung
Tara your site is unbelievable!!! I have just started in Real Estate and was reading the Point2 manual and was directed to your site. Impressive just does not cover it.
I am located in Fayetteville North Carolina and if I hear of anyone heading to your neck of the woods I will direct them to you.

Tara, we wanted you to know how much we appreciate your efforts in helping us find that special home.
As first time home buyers it was important for us to find a real estate agent that would look out for us. You exceeded our expectations for customer care and satisfaction.
You have a passion for looking after the best interest of your clients. After our first meeting with you we relaxed. We knew that our search for that special home would be successful. Your communications skills are outstanding. We always knew what to expect during each step in the home buying process.
It is obvious that you have worked hard at your profession. You understand the market and you do the work necessary to ensure that you exceed your client’s expectations. You found us the perfect house within our budget and you did it in the time frame you said you would.
Tara, we would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone considering a real estate transaction.
Personally Thanking You! Dennis & Luz Boyce
As first time home buyers, we were not looking forward to what we thought was going to be a long and difficult journey into home buying.
However, we were introduced to Tara and right away we knew she was the agent for us. She knew the area well that we were wanting to move into which was very comforting. Tara really knew what she was talking about and walked us through every step. We trusted that she was going to show us houses that were going to fit us.
Tara was always available to show us houses and was on top of any new ones that came on the market. We were also impressed at how thorough Tara was when viewing houses with us, she really knew what to look for.
We look forward to working with Tara again a few years down the road.
Brenda Boyd and Mark Mooney
Tara was always available with professional answers to our endless concerns about purchasing our first house. I wouldn’t hesitate to call on her again for any future purchases and would love to refer her to friends and family. In fact, I have already referred her to my father!
MJ & Marcel Roeser
Just wanted you to know that you were a great help and gave us a lot of support during our journey, and I wanted to thank you. I know you will continue to bring positivity into peoples lives.
Love, Miche Lewis
I don’t believe I’ve ever thanked your for your fantastic, informative monthly newsletter!
It’s nice to have such a hard working person like yourself looking after us, 'even after the sale'. You’ve always been such a pleasure to deal with and you’re always there for us when we constantly bother you with emails.
Have a fantastic day! Kathy King
We are really enjoying our new home, and we cannot thank you enough for the excellent service that you provided us with. We alwayas keep you in our minds.
Best wishes to you and your family.
Gigi and Elias
We cannot thank you enough for all your hard work on helping us find and purchase our new home! You are absolutely lovely and so personable, and have made us feel completely comfortable and taken care of throughout this home-buying process. We will be recommending you to everyone we know!
We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Thanks so much again, Amy & Michael
Tara, I just wanted to let you know that this is such a big and scary step for me and you have been so wonderful, I really can't thank you enough.
I realize that a lot of the questions and favors I ask are not really a concern for you, but the fact that you are so understanding and helpful really means a lot. I have told a few people about you and how amazing you are... I really hope that maybe the next time you are in this way you stop by.
You have made this experience a lot less stressful. Thanks so much! I just wanted you to know that trust doesn't come this easily and you have my total trust.
Tara, I am a Realtor from India and just had an opportunity to see your site and I can only say Wow... my heart is beating faster... such an amazing website, I can only say 'The Best'.
God bless you take care, Ehsan
Tara Rosen went over and above the call of duty helping my husband and I get into our first home. She was there for us whenever we needed, and her patience and understanding are unparalleled. We could not be happier in our new home and Tara is the reason we're there.
Thank you for making our dream of owning a home come true!
For so many years, Robb, Terry and I were in the rental system - renting apartments and houses from others. We were lining someone else's pockets with our money, without building equity.
After being told that the owners of the last house we lived in were selling the house, and we had to leave in 3 months, I decided that I just didn't want to live at someone else's mercy anymore.
We wanted a house that we could call our own... to make our own, and to help us build equity.
From the moment that we met you, we knew that you were the one for us. You explained everything clearly and concisely, and it was like you intuited what we'd like and would not like. The one thing I valued most, was your complete honesty with us, in every respect. To be honest, we were like kids as Christmas - wide-eyed and excited. You were so wonderful in fostering that excitement, but also in keeping our feet on the ground and being realistic. When we found the house that we eventually bought, it was love at first sight. You advised that we should still look at more houses, to be sure that this was the one we wanted.
To make a long story short, no matter what other houses we looked at, we knew that this was the one for us. Then came the intimidating part; offers, counter offers, walk-throughs, home inspections, legal issues, etc; and at every step of the way, you guided us with sound advice, and now, 6 months later, we are enjoying a home of our own, and we couldn't be happier. I can't tell you how nice it is to be able to drive a nail, without having to worry about repairing it when we move out.
The sky is the limit for us, in this house. Every Sunday morning, we enjoy coffee in our hot tub, and plan our renovations.
Tara - from the bottom of our hearts, we cannot thank you enough. Your honesty, openness, caring and advice made you a member of our family.
I would recommend you to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a house. Drop by for a coffee and to say 'hi' to the dogs - they're HUGE now!
With love and respect,
Robb, Lisa and Terry
I just wanted to take a minute to email you about the wonderful Job you did at finding our house. I know when we started out it was a little crazy as my husband and myself were a little picky and just couldn't find anything.
You having the knowledge that you do read us like a book and within two weeks it was like you were a part of us finding what we were looking for.
You knew right away if we would like it or not like it and took us to what we would like and didn't take us to what you knew we would not like.
On July 11th when you took us to the house that we fell in love with, it was like you knew right away that we would. Randy and myself can't say THANK YOU enough for finding us the house that we plan on growing old in and bring up the kids.
This is the house we were looking for, something that we could call HOME.
Tara I will definitely tell people about you and how hard you worked at getting us what we wanted, not only were you a real estate agent, you were a friend.
Thank You Again for all your hard work and loyalty.
Jeannette and Randy Thompson
A great big 'THANK YOU' to you for helping me find my cute little bungalow!
Everything is still quite a mess because I haven't had much time for unpacking. Slowly, but surely... I plan to start painting the living & dining rooms next weekend.
Also, thanks for the newsletter. It was my first piece of mail!
Right from our very first meeting we could tell that you were personable yet professional. You maximized our time by showing us the greatest amount of listings on each day we could spare to look for houses. We felt very confident that we had a plentiful selection from which to base our final decision. As first time buyers we valued your thoughtful and expert advice. Thank you for being all that we could imagine or want a Real Estate agent to be...and thank you for finding us a place we could call home.
Best wishes and heartfelt gratitude,
Marlon and Valerie Warren
Lloyd and I just wanted to say Thank you so much for helping us find and purchase our 1st home. It is great and we love it so much. You were a great help and appreciate all you did for us.
Tara and Lloyd Philip
You sold our house in a week! We got our full asking price and the closing date we asked for!
Gwen and I are quite happy with the way everything worked out. When we listed our home in Newmarket we felt we were the only ones you were working for. Impossible of course, but the personal touch goes a long way and we always felt you were looking after us one hundred percent.
Your policy of ‘There are no stupid questions’ was much appreciated, as there were so many of them. We both remember very well telling you we were leaning strongly towards buying a new home and you and Sandra still spent valuable time showing us re-sales without any pressure to buy. It gave us a chance to get to know you and trust you and when the time came to sell, we called you first... and we are glad we did. The next thing we knew the house was sold and the worry was over. Even the dog (Angel) likes you!
We have already recommended you to a couple of neighbours and definitely will again.
Thank you so much for making it soooo easy!
I would truly like to say how very much I appreciated your tireless efforts to find me a more than suitable new home.
I am an extremely hard-to-please person. I had sold my home and for the purchase of my new one Tara Rosen of Coldwell Banker The Real Estate Centre worked relentlessly to achieve this goal. I would not hesitate to recommend Tara and her team to anyone.
Thank you very much,
I would just like to take this opportunity to thank both of you for helping Ken and I find our new home. Thank you for your time and patience and most of all your knowledge and honesty.
Buying a home is a very big step for the two of us but for me it is that much bigger, as I have never lived in a house. I have lived in and apartment for as long as I can remember. Ken and I have two small children and are very excited that they (as I didn't have) will be able to play in a back yard.
We only met a few short months ago and I feel like I have known you both for much longer than that. Your openess and friendliness have made this very stressed journey an easy and pleasant one.
If ever there is any need in the future for us to do further business I guarantee that Ken and I will be calling on you. We both are very pleased with all that you have done for us and trust that you will give us the same service in the future.
Please don't be strangers... you know where we live and you have our number and we would like nothing more than to keep in contact with you. Maybe even a cup of coffee every now and then!
Take care, Joanne and Ken
We would really like to thank you for the wonderful experience we had purchasing our home with you.
Being first-time home buyers we really didn't know what to expect. The only thing we were sure of was that we had no clue what we were doing!
You were so patient and you explained everything thoroughly...and in plain English! Your friendly nature made us feel as though we had known you for years and we felt very comfortable trusting in your judgement and advice. You were able to discern exactly what we were looking for and you found us the perfect home in no time at all. We are thrilled to finally be free of that vicious renters cycle and we can't wait to move into our new home.
Thank you so much Tara for helping to make our dreams come true!
All the best, The Graham Family
I thought I would let you know how much David and I enjoy our home, maybe some time if you are in the area you could drop in to see all the work we put into it. Heather and Rick are doing a big renovation on their house as I'm sure you know, but again if you are ever in the Barrie area or Innisfil please stop by to see us.
Again, thank you very much for finding our home for us. Barb and Dave Armstrong
First, we want to thank you for your extensive help in finding our new home.
We had dealt with other agents and we always felt rushed to make a decision or that we wouldn't find anything better in our price range. We were really close to moving to Ajax because we thought there was no hope in staying in Scarborough. You saved the day.
In every home you took us to view, we could feel that you almost pictured yourself there. If you didn't think it was right for us, you were the first person, to say, "No, Its not for you" and we would go back to the listings. Even the day we found this home, you saved it for last because, I swear you knew it was going to be the one my mom would like. Remember, we tried twice before to see a home in this complex and it was gone within minutes. But this was lucky number 3. AND WE GOT IT!!
You educated us on everything from home inspection to upgrading the house to property tax. Your devotion to us as clients was extremely outstanding and you really made us all feel like friends. Every single time I opened my email, I had 3 emails from you with at least 7 homes that were ready for our approval to view.
You are incredible as a real estate "friend" and we thank you over and over again for everything. We will refer you to anyone, who is looking to buy a home because you have the gift to take all the stress away.
Thank you. The Marcano's
I feel compelled to let you both know (please pass this along to Sandra as well) how much I have appreciated your patience and dedication over the past year. It has been a long and arduous road and I wouldn’t have travelled it with any other real estate agent and their protégé.
Tara, you have been very honest and patient with our family since we first met. You stayed with us even though we viewed well over a hundred houses (or was it two hundred?). You understood our needs vs. our wants and incorporated these requirements into our search. This saved us a lot of time and energy and ultimately found us the perfect home in the location we had our hearts set on. I can’t express enough how much your dedication means to us.
In the short time I’ve worked with Sandra, she has been like a grandmother to my newborn. She is trustworthy, patient, and extremely helpful as well.
Thank you, Tara and Sandra! The road was a long one but in the end we found the right path. Very few agents would have maintained the professionalism you two did during our long journey.
I look forward to working with you both again in the future.
All the best Suzanne, Hagan, Braydan, and last but not least, Your Spensar.
I just wanted to drop you a note to say Thank you again for helping Steve and I find our home - it's perfect! Now that we are all settled we can really appreciate how easily you made this happen for us.
We had started house hunting on our own and we were so very frustrated by it all that we decided to go with the advise that one of Steve's co-workers gave him; "Call Tara, she'll help you no problem!"
That was the best advise we received. I think it was the second or third house that you showed us and we knew it would be perfect for us. You made it all so easy from the inspection to the patience you showed two new green buyers on all the paperwork.
I have already handed your cards to friends I know that are moving soon in the hopes that they have a great experience like Steve and I did. After all buying a home is supposed to be fun - not stressful right?
Maybe before Christmas you can come over for a cup of coffee and see the house now - you'll be amazed how great it looks!
Thanks again Tara, we really appreciate everything you do!
We wish to thank you again for the help you gave us, whilst looking for, finding and completing the papers for our new condominium.
It seems unbelievable that we found you on the internet in spring and by June, Barbara was flying in from Winnipeg and Selom from Halifax.
Being unfamiliar with Toronto we felt extra special when you picked us up at our hotel and immediately began showing us places. That afternoon we looked at seven distinct units and you gently guided us toward those that were ideal in terms of price, location, and quality.
We were able to make an offer and have it accepted that night!
Selom is now happily settling in to his new life in Toronto.
We feel so lucky to have been able to work with you and have mentioned you to several people here in Manitoba.
Sincerely, Barbara, David, and Selom Chapman Nyaho
Thank you sooooo much for all of your help. You were so much more than a buyer's agent to us, you were a friend and we really needed that.
It was great hanging out with you and we are sorry that it has come to an end so soon. However, we are really happy with our house and we feel like we got just what we were looking for. It was all thanks to you of course so we just want to let you know how much we appreciated everything you did for us.
A million thanks! Julie & Frederick
We would like to thank you again in helping us find our adorable new home. You knew just what we were looking for and succeeded our expectations as a real estate agent. Thank you for all of your hard work and hunting.
You made Gary and I feel more than just clients, but as friends instead. It was always nice to meet you and your smiling face for our appointments.
Thank you so much once again! Lesley Green
It has been a pleasure meeting and working with you, especially taking into account the fact it was our first time to purchase a house.
Thank you for educating us and guiding us through the whole process, not forgetting how tirelessly you ran around to get us the best property... which you did.
Thank you very much for your help through the whole process and we will not hesitate to refer our friends to you for assistance.
We will keep in touch!
Thank you, Eph and Rudo
We have now been in our house for a month, and it is quickly transforming into a comfortable home. As things come together, we continue to realise how fortunate and happy we were to have found and worked with you.
As first-time homebuyers, we could not have asked for a more tailored experience that suited our own inexperience in the home market. You blew our mal-conceived real-estate agent stereotypes out of the water: you were honest, friendly, relaxed and incredibly helpful. You were very informative and knowledgeable in the homebuying process and in your opinions of the places we were seeing, all the while letting us form our own decisions, without the rumoured and notorious pressure.
You weren't just looking to complete the sale, you truly cared for us and helped us find the place that was right for us. You were always available, always ready to help and somehow always able to meet us according to our schedule.
Most of all, you took the stressful world of real estate down to our level, again, with sheer honesty and commitment to our individual satisfaction.
It is always our pleasure to recommend you with full confidence and conviction to friends and family we know who are looking to buy. And you can be sure we'll be calling you down the line when we are looking for our next home!
Thank you so much for all your work, but especially your friendship over the course of our search! You are always welcome to drop by!
Steve Salt and Ann Slinger
Tara, I'm a Realtor from Houston Texas, and I just wanted to see your site... WOW, what a nice site!
If I were a homebuyer in Ontario I would stop, visit, and call you. Your website says to your clients, "Hi, prepare to be spoiled!"
Darlene Bitner, Agent
I really wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for all the great work you did in helping us purchase our first home. For years we have been debating whether or not to purchase but were put off by all the 'unknowns' as well as the fact that we did not think our finances were in order.
We are truly amazed at how easy the entire process was from start to finish, and even more taken back by the fact that before we knew it, we had bought a home!
You really made a difference in our lives; we have now realized on of our biggest dreams!
Thank you again for your professionalism and guidance. You were great!
Heather, Joe and Hayden Mignacca Proud New Home Owners!
Tara, thank you so much for the personal touch you've put into our first time buying experience.
We didn't do this sooner because we thought we wouldn't get the financing we needed, and we also felt it would be overwhelming and stressful. You made it so easy, explained everything step-by-step and made us feel so comfortable. We can't believe how easy it was!
We also can't believe we'll be moving into the house that has everything we had been looking for... AND in our price range! We are so impressed, we recommend you to everyone and anyone, we have even given your card to a cashier at the supermarket, when she mentioned she was looking into buying.
Thank you so much Tara for finding our dream home, and our son's first house... where we can grow roots.
We're were very lucky to have had a warm, wonderful and compassionate Realtor for our first time buying, you had a sense of what we wanted and you delivered with so much more.
You're the only Realtor we would ever use and that only one we would ever recommend.
Honey, Doug and Scott Thompson
Jay and I had a brief but great experience working with you, thank you. We're totally psyched about our new home and are practically counting down the days... still months yet... till we move in!
The fun part now has been shopping for furniture! And thanks to your patience and help we found a home in a price range that has given us much flexibility in feeling at ease with the many continued cost of the move.
Anyway, thanks again, we'll defiantly keep your name in mind when we or anyone we know is looking to buy and sell in the future. Don't forget we have a dinner and drinks date the evening of our last inspection!
Laura & Jason
No more renting! No more throwing our money away and no more dealing with other people’s problems! Thank you so much for helping us find our new home. You answered all our questions and helped us make a lot of decisions, right down to our paint colours!
We would (and have) recommend you to anyone that would listen. You made such a stressful time fun and relaxed! Above everything else, not only do we have a great real estate agent but we have a FANTASTIC new friend!
Thanks again for everything!! Kim & Tom
I would recommend Tara to everyone I know and everyone I don't know for that matter! She has been absolutely wonderful and very helpful with my search and purchase of my first home. She made what seemed so complicated and overwhelmingly scary, so easy and enjoyable.
Tara helped me not just find my first house, but my first home for my son and I, and for that, I cannot thank her enough. She has taken the time to go over every last detail to ensure that I understood and was comfortable with every aspect of this experience.
I wasn't even sure that I would be able to find a home that I could afford, but Tara was able to help me find the perfect home in my price range. She has proven that no matter what the price range she has to work with, she goes above and beyond the call of duty, which only reinforces all of the wonderful comments, happy endings and new beginnings posted on her site!
Thank You sooooo much Tara! You are the best!
All the best, Lisa Wagner
Tara, thank you for your dedicated and professional, yet casual and friendly help in purchasing our first home. The process was surprisingly uncomplicated and enjoyable!
Working with you is like talking to a trusted friend who you can always count on. You and your family are always welcome in our home.
From two happy homeowners, Carolyn and Steve
We would like to thank you very much for all the help you gave us in purchasing our first home. You were only a phone call away, and it didn't matter what time it was, you were always there to answer any questions, and to set up appointments to view homes.
We are settled in our new home now, and we love it! Once again a big thank you from all of us, without your help, this might not have been possible.
Tony, Lillian, and Jordan
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all of your help during the process of purchasing our first home. You were able to make a very intimidating experience feel like we were taking “baby steps” from beginning to end. You were very flexible when dealing with us and made yourself available almost 24/7 without hesitation, to accommodate our hectic schedules.
You are an honest, trustworthy, and reliable person which is something that we admire about you, and separates you from others. Knowing this we would recommend you to any of our family and friends.
Thank you so much, Sarah & Travis
As first time buyers, my husband and I knew nothing about buying a home. With Tara's vast experience, knowledge, skill, expertise and a good heart, she helped us realize our dream within a matter of weeks. We all know that this is not an easy job, but she patiently took us by the hand and walk through each step of the entire process.
Since we don't have a vehicle, when we were looking at houses, it did not matter to Tara how far the distance would be, she was always willing to give us a ride.
Tara, you're one in a million. You always look out for your client's best interests.
We would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts, for everything that you have done for us. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank your personal assistant and Coldwell Banker, The Real Estate Centre.
We will definitely recommend you to all our friends and family.
Thank you again, Billy and Vilma
It's hard to believe that less than a year ago, we were living in a cramped bachelor apartment. The idea of purchasing a home just seemed so overwhelming and out of our reach. Then we met you, and everything changed for the better.
You were so professional and supportive. You spent time with us to patiently explain each step of the process. In short - you were absolutely fantastic. You have found us a beautiful home and we are so happy here!!!
We are so thankful to have met you. You have provided an outstanding service and we will (and have) recommend you to anyone looking to purchase a home.
We have only one regret: that we didn't meet you sooner!
Thank you so much for helping make our dreams come true.
Hilary & Andy MacDonald
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you very much for helping me find my home. I know that it is not an easy job, I must congratulate you for doing such a wonderful job for your clients. I am going to tell all my friends who are paying rent about you.
I know that you are going to get lots of clients this summer. Tara you have a good heart and God is going to bless you mightily. Please keep in touch with me by e-mail and I will do the same.
Tara, We still can't believe that we will be moving... it is really surreal. You will be invited to our housewarming party as our honoured guest because if it was not for you this would not be happening.
All the best, Cori VanErp
Tara was so helpful in helping us find the right home. She was very patient and was always glad to see us. She was always cheerful and even when she wasn't feeling 100% she still showed up and gave it her all.
I can't thank Tara enough for her help.
Thank you Tara, for everything. Shawn & Shyrl James
Thank you for everything that you have done for us. Without you none of this would be possible. You were found for a reason and we will never forget you for that. We are both so excited to embark in this new adventure and see where this takes us.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart... I wish I could do more to thank you. I am glad that you are enjoying the flowers, it was our pleasure. You deserve the world for the wonderful person that you are.
We all thank you, especially Ethan (who is very excited by the way), for all that you have done. I will refer you always.
Thanks from all of us. Cori, Jason and Ethan
Hi Tara, Brian and I would like to commend you on the outstanding service you provided us with while looking for our new home. You assessed our needs and desires and came up with an abundance of suitable properties to view.
Your vast experience, knowledge, skill and expertise were very valuable to us, especially being new home owners. You graciously met all our expectations. We would not hesitate in recommending you to any of our friends or relatives that are requiring a real estate agent.
Again, thank you so much for making our purchase such a rewarding experience!
Lesley and Brian Hannon
As first time buyers my partner and I were a little sceptical about buying a new home. We have been renters for years and were tired of throwing our money away.
Tara Rosen from Coldwell Banker The Real Estate Centre made our transition from renters to "new homeowners" easy and problem free. Tara was very informative and professional and took us through each step of the buying process with ease. I am very satisfied with Tara's service and will definitely recommend Tara to all my friends and family, whether they are first time buyer's or not.
I want to take this opportunity to thank Tara, her husband, and Coldwell Banker for "holding our hands" through this very exciting and sometimes confusing process.
Jason and I will pass your card to anyone who mentions/thinks they want to buy property. We have really enjoyed your service and have come to think of you as a friend rather than a real estate agent/professional... even though you are great at your job!!!
I hope that any person we give your card to... gives you a call... and is as satisfied with your courteousness and professionalism as we were!
Thanks for helping us realize our dream!
Robert Pavao & Jason McGuire
