Tara Widener

A graduate of the University of Georgia, Tara has been a resident of Atlanta for the last 31 years. Growing up with a father in Civil Service, she spent most of her childhood moving frequently with most of her time spent in Germany. She is committed to helping others make a smooth transition whether across town or across the country. Active in the Atlanta Community, she has been Chair of both the Hope and Will Ball for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and The Beastly Feast benefiting Zoo Atlanta. She and her husband, Mark, have also served in numerous volunteer positions during their daughters’ time at Holy Innocents’ Episcopal School.

In 2016, Tara co-founded the Go 2 Girls, an “on demand” personal assistant service designed to help busy clients with a variety of tasks such as holiday decorating, gift buying and delivery, floral design, and event planning. The company evolved into organizing, staging, decluttering, and helping clients get ready to move and then get settled in their new homes. She is committed to blending this expertise and high level of personal service to her clients at Beacham. While the process of buying and selling a home is different for everyone, we are all looking for the perfect place where “our story” will unfold. Buying a home is one of the single most important purchases we can make. Your home is where you will close the door at the end of the day- it is your refuge and sanctuary. It is a place where we celebrate the milestones in our lives with friends and family and it is an investment in the future. Tara and the entire team at Beacham believe that homes are bought and sold based not only upon the traditional use of technology, but more importantly, it is about relationships built and kept, upholding the highest integrity, and providing the utmost dedication to professionalism and personal service. Being a long-time resident of Atlanta enables Tara to share her knowledge of neighborhoods, schools, shopping and restaurants. Tara is excited to bring her entrepreneurial spirit and passion for homes to your home buying process – whether it is helping first time homebuyers navigate the process successfully or providing help in the luxury market, Tara can help with it all.

Tara’s husband, Mark, is an Energy Developer with Nextera and they have two daughters – Sarah and Meredith. Sarah, is a second grader teacher at The Schenck School, and Meredith, is an orthopedic surgical rep for Stryker. In her free time, Tara enjoys running, reading, traveling, and spending time with her French Bulldog – Clark Gable.

What My Clients Are Saying

We hired Tara and sold our house in one week!  There was much preparation ahead of the listing to successfully stage and she was hands-on from the beginning.  Tara’s professional gravitas and personal charm & knowledge of the market make her powerfully persuasive in negotiations. We were thrilled with Tara as our listing agent and now as our buying agent!  She has turned into the range of what we are seeking and is always proactive in the search.  Thank you.

- Caroline Bielan

When looking for a Real Estate agent, my wife and I value three key things, hard work, strong communication, and brutal honesty about the market and how best to position and market our property. Tara Widener brings all three of these plus a work ethic that is outstanding compared to traditional agents. Tara worked tirelessly to evaluate, market, and sell our house, providing expert advice and a strong marketing vision along the way. She was at every showing, followed up on every interest, and kept us informed with the agent and potential buyer feedback allowing us to better position our home. We strongly recommend Tara for your real estate agency needs and are extremely pleased with the results she has achieved in our house sale.

- Phil and Maysie Beeson

Tara did a fabulous job selling our home and guiding us through the process. She brought so much professionalism and enthusiasm to marketing our home.

We were getting ready to put our home of 32 years on the market and wondering how to pick the best Selling Agent for our home. As we were about to start the process, Tara coincidently reached out to us after hearing we were going to sell our home. She stepped in as I was beginning to feel overwhelmed, offering guidance and support to get us ready to act. I felt as if she actually picked us! 

She was prepared, knowledgeable about our community, and had great ideas and we all really worked well together. She helped us get through the last stages of putting the house on the market and suggested we list it as “Coming Soon” while we finished the last bits of getting the house ready for potential buyers. We had several potential buyers come to look during the Coming Soon period and already were getting a lot of interest. We got an offer the day the home was officially listed! It was a great offer and we sold our beloved home to a wonderful family. We would highly recommend Tara to represent you whether you are selling or buying. She is wonderful to work with.

Tara’s professional gravitas and personal charm & knowledge of the market make her powerfully persuasive in negotiations. We were thrilled with Tara as our listing agent and now as our buying agent! She has tuned into the range of what we are seeking and is always proactive in the search. Thank you, Tara!

- Caroline Bielan

Tara worked tirelessly to find us the right home at a great price, and we are thrilled with our purchase. We started working with Tara in Summer 2020 and she must have driven to and shown us at least 50 homes before we bought one in Spring 2021. We were amazed at how hard Tara worked for us for months, meeting seller’s agents, doing her homework on properties, and even clearing leaves with her leaf blower before we arrived so we could see houses in their best light. Tara was patient with us through our long search to find the right house. She brought us an unlisted property she knew was going to hit the market, and we knew we had found our dream home before others even had a chance to see it! We highly recommend working with Tara and will be recommending her to all our family and friends in the market.

- Greg O’Neil

As first-time home buyers, we were extremely nervous when it came to working with an agent. We didn’t think anyone would care for our home more than we would. Until we met an Angel named Tara. Tara helped us find a home as if she was looking for one for her own family. The experience was absolutely amazing! She never once made it feel like she was just an agent. Tara was practically family! She always worked around our schedule and set up appointments to see homes so perfectly. She always looked out for things that we would have never caught or thought to see in our homes. She saved us from many bad decisions, went along with our ideas, and very quickly we found our dream home. It all happened much faster and much smoother than we expected! We never once felt pressured to pick something or make any kind of decision. She was extremely patient, wise enough to help us make certain choices, and completely carried us through this whole process. Even after closing, she was still there making sure everything went well. It was all unbelievably smooth. We couldn’t be ANY happier. Tara brings the standard for a real estate agent incredibly high. And anyone who is looking for a home needs to stop what they’re doing and give her a call because I’m absolutely certain that there is NO ONE better out there! THANK YOU SO MUCH TARA!!! You are a blessing! And you will always be welcome in our home!

- Jay & Steffi Perez

Tara was so easy to work with! As a young first-time renter, she made sure to explain each step of the rental process and had my best interest in mind. Tara is responsive, knowledgeable, and pays great attention to detail. It was smooth sailing with Tara on our team!

- Meredith McCanless

Tara was absolutely wonderful to work with when looking for our rental house! Being new to the area and having very specific wants and needs, she helped tremendously in navigating the search. She was both considerate and thoughtful when exploring our options. Throughout all of our conversations and meetings, she was professional and fun to be around! We definitely could not have found such an amazing place without her!! She’s the best! I mean it!

- Mary Claire Moore

Tara was an exceptionally professional and hard-working agent for us. She was very responsive, both during normal working hours and well outside of them, to our questions and concerns throughout the process. As first-time home buyers, Tara’s guidance and foresight were extremely helpful and much appreciated.

- Graham Stovall

As a first-time home buyer, Tara made the buying process a breeze. She was able to provide the necessary information that we needed throughout, without it feeling overwhelming or confusing. We also appreciated how responsive, flexible, and willing she was to work with our schedules. Most impressive, was her ability to listen and take in all of our house needs/requests, only showing us homes that fit what we were looking for. Her advice and guidance were critical in our decision-making process and closing on our dream home. I would recommend her to anyone.

- Whitney Stovall

We recently retained Tara Widener of Beacham & Co. after our Buckhead condo had been on the market for several months and had not received any offers from buyers despite consistently showing well. Tara immediately made sensible suggestions about how to make the condo more appealing to buyers, attended every showing, sent out postcards, used social media, and there was an immediate uptick in showings. In less than 8 weeks, the condo was sold. Along the way, she kept us informed, was responsive to our questions and concerns, and was a delight to work with. We highly recommend Tara Widener – she is a go-getter who gets results.

- Veronica M Vincent

When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary to sell one’s house and move one’s family to NYC where they will continue life’s adventure with gusto and curiosity, one is well advised to engage a great realtor.

Stacey and I could not have been happier with the experience we had listing and selling (!) our home with Tara Widener

As we were selecting among several very qualified agents, I was asked, “what are you looking for besides someone who will get you the highest price?” I thought about this for a second and said, “someone whom I’ll be glad to see when their car pulls up.”

On this level—and every other level—Tara was an absolute home run. Having her in our corner made the sometimes stressful process as painless as possible. Together, we created a shared vision then she followed through, going above and beyond expectations with joy, a sense of urgency, and deep pride in her work.

She was always a positive voice of reason that calmed me down when things got tense. In such cases, she solved problems like a ninja who “uses a machete to cut through red tape.”*

All kidding, hyperbole, and early ’00’s pop cultural references aside, Tara is not just a lovely person to be around, but she’s a consummate professional who cares deeply about what she does and will represent you with enthusiasm and integrity.

Please feel free to reach out if you’d like any further detail.
