My husband and I are partners at home and at work. We grew up together in the Flathead Valley in Montana. We married and moved to Seattle in 1990 and have been here ever since.
In 1992 we bought our first home in West Seattle. The president of Evergreen Home Loans, Don Burton closed our first home loan. After the loan closed, Don asked me if I wanted to come to work for him as a loan officer, and that is how I got into the business. I admired his commitment and passion to me as a customer.
In 1999 I needed to be closer to home to spend more time with our 4-year-old son Logan, so I took a job 10 minutes from home doing mortgages at a local company when my husband Gregg started working with me. It’s great having two people equally committed to our customers.
On July 31st, 2008, we felt like it was time to go back home to Evergreen. We are both proud to be a part of Evergreen again. We feel the company has the same passion, commitment and honesty to customers and this business that we both share.
“We had a very short window to get a deal done, Tara and Gregg stepped up and got it closed early.”
