My Favorite Fairway Core Value

Tara got her start in mortgage working with Sharla in 2016. Starting off as a processing assistant, she then moved her way over to the marketing coordinator. In 2019 Tara became a Real Estate Agent. The timing was perfect for her as the COVID-19 pandemic hit, she was able to work from home and be with her son and daughter. In August 2021, Tara returned to Sharla’s Team at Fairway and took on the role of Client Relations/ Business Development Manager. Again, the timing was perfect with her children back in school full time! Tara says, “It’s amazing to be part of The Sharla Ellis Dream Team again!”
Tara graduated from University of Utah with a degree in Early Childhood Education. She worked at the Head Start program in Salt Lake City for eight years serving families and children 0-5 years of age. Tara wanted to get into real estate and investment properties, so she made the move over to the mortgage world to get more exposure in this field. Tara enjoys making sure things “get done,” as well as ensuring clients have a great experience.
Tara’s enjoys thrift shopping, travelling, trying new places to eat, country music concerts and festivals. On Tara’s bucket list is more travel – Greece, Italy, and Disneyland … here she comes!
