Tara helped us lock down the vacation property of our dreams! The deal was unique and had some very unusual complications but everything was professionally managed and in the end - we are extremely pleased!

Tara was recommended by a friend to help us purchase our first house in Winnipeg, and we absolutely could not have been more pleased with our experience! My partner and I were relocating to Winnipeg from overseas, and so it was a particularly daunting task to buy a house in a city that we did not know. Tara truly went above and beyond, working incredibly hard to introduce us to our new city, to find the right house, and to keep us organized as the house purchase was underway.
As much of our house hunting and purchasing had to be done remotely, we came to rely on Tara as a trusted friend to be our "eyes and ears" in Winnipeg. She spent a great deal of time to understand our needs and priorities in a home, and took us on several in-person viewings when we visited the city, and on many more "virtual" viewings while we were overseas. When we found properties we liked, she took much of the stress out of other parts of the home-buying process by connecting us with a home inspector, a mortgage broker, and a real estate lawyer, all of which turned out to be fantastic. Tara has also connected us with an interior designer, and has offered to make recommendations for tradespeople should we need them.
We are now settled in our new home, and we couldn't be happier. We owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to Tara for giving us such a great start in our new city. Tara is not only a fantastic real estate agent, she has also become a trusted advisor and friend. We give Tara the highest recommendation to anyone looking to buy or sell a house in Winnipeg!

Tara was a great support when we sold our house. She was always calm, professional, caring and a good listener. I appreciated her advice but also the fact that she listened to my questions and suggestions. She was easy to reach whenever we needed her. She always responded to texts within 10 minutes. She is honest and straightforward which help me out my trust in her abilities. We would truly recommend her to another seller and will ask for her help if/when we buy again.

My experience with Tara:
Tara was referred to me by a friend and that friend said I would not be disappointed. He was right! Tara was responsive, engaged, informative, knowledgeable and just plain great to work with. She went above and beyond what I would have expected from a real estate agent, and the sale of my house went as smoothly as I could have wanted. We will definitely be using Tara for our next house sale and purchase! Thank you Tara!
Tara Suffield is a rare gem among real estate agents that all house buyers/sellers wish they had. Apart from her natural kindness and charm, she is very knowledgeable, professional and extremely hard-working. Throughout our house-shopping adventures, Tara was very patient with us and always told us the truth about every house we saw. She educated us on the house market, and saved us from making bad decisions, even if that meant more work for her.
Tara took the time to really understand our needs, and, in the end, got us our dream house at a price that exceeded all our expectations. With Tara, we were in good hands and had peace of mind, knowing that she always had our best interests at heart. We couldn't be happier with Tara and will forever be grateful to her for helping us achieve our dream. If you are looking for a real estate agent, you won't find one more diligent, more attentive and more genuine.

We contacted Tara to help us find a house upon moving to Winnipeg 4 years ago. The experience was such an easy one, we did not even think twice on who to call when it was time to move back home.
She advised us on what needed to be done to sell our home, we complied - maybe with slight hesitation - but
she was 100% right.
Our house had 5 offers within 6 days!
She made it such a pleasant and quick experience. My house had been on the market 2 days this time last week, and now it’s been sold for 4 days - such a great feeling! She knows the market, is knowledgeable, and made both of our dealings with her as seamless as possible. Thanks Tara!
Larry and Janea
Tara is everything that you could hope for in a realtor; professional, reliable and knowledgeable. But more than that, she is personable, caring and positive. She makes process of buying and selling a house an enjoyable experience that is focus on your needs and interests.
We were very fortunate to have been introduced to Tara when we first move to Winnipeg from out of province. Her knowledge of the city and of the market was an invaluable resource to us when we were looking to buy our house. She was spot on with her evaluation of the value of the house and negotiated a good price for us.
When it came time to sell our house, Tara was the obvious choice. She met with us at the early stage to walk through the process and to provide us with vital advice on how to get our house market ready. We followed her advice and in no time, our house was sold!
We would recommend Tara to everyone, without hesitation. She is simply phenomenal!
We will be forever grateful for her help. Thank you, Tara.

Tara, I just wanted to thank you for being my realtor in Winnipeg. I am from B.C. and I started looking at real estate in Winnipeg in the month of January. I was looking for a duplex in the area for rental investment. I first emailed Tara about a listing I was interested in and she was very nice an offered to help me. I mentioned that I would be in town for 4 days and she started sending me listings right away. When I landed in Winnipeg the hunt began. She steered me away from areas that might cause me problems. Big thanks on that idea!!! In the end we looked at multiple listings and I ended up purchasing the listing that I originally emailed her about. Tara is a complete professional and I will use her again when I buy again in Winnipeg.
CUSTOMER FOR LIFE!!!
Tara has been phenomenal to work with! She knows the market and made the whole selling process much easier then anticipated. She was accommodating with my busy schedule, knowledgeable and very friendly. Tara kept me in the loop and I was informed on every step throughout the process. If you want to sell your home in a week, she’s the person to get the job done!
Our decision as a family to move came quickly and unexpectedly. It involved us transitioning from a rural location to the city. These variables made it a daunting prospect to face and we can honestly say that Tara guided us through it with the most support at least amount of stress possible.
When we reached out to her she quickly determined our needs and was able to narrow down options that suited us. Not only did she determine those needs properly, she took the time to show us multiple houses that met those needs. Her knowledge and insight helped us to explore neighbourhoods we were interested in as well as some that we had not considered.
She also used her wealth of experience to educate us and ultimately she knew what we wanted before we did.
Tara is extremely accessible and if she didn’t have an immediate answer to our questions she found one quickly. She is clearly well-connected within the real estate community as she utilized her connections many times to answer our questions and get us information.
Her experience and honesty in house valuations and price point allowed us to put forward an offer we felt confident in.
We were fully at ease with her advocating for us through the negotiation process, and are fully confident that the deal we made was fair.
Her support did not end after the purchase was finalized. She helped us get in contact with trades and helped us navigate some of the unknowns of moving into the city. Tara made this process quite enjoyable and I actually miss her already.
It’s a real skill to know when to keep things light and went to get serious. Tara definitely has that skill.
We highly recommend Tara to buy or sell your next home! She is truly amazing❣️
Alicia and David
I did not know you before taking you on as my Realtor.
I was very impressed by your knowledge, energy (EverReady Bunny I call you), and assistance with my purchase, as well as sale of my own property.
You are a very pleasant person to work with. Very personable, yet straight forward when required. Very refreshing.
Thank you again for a job well done. I will definitely use you again if required.
I used Tara to help me buy a condo in the River Heights part of Winnipeg. Tara provided exceptional service and did lots of little things to help me in my search. It felt like she was on my side and trying to make my purchase as simple and easy as possible. She was professional in every way and I would definitely use her services next time I am looking for a new home.
Thanks for all your help. Barry
Tara gets things done. We were absolutely blown away. She was a true professional. She easily navigated us through an often intimidating (and stressful) process with ease. Selling with her was a breeze. She took care of every detail. All we had to do was sit back and enjoy the ride. We could not have asked for a better experience.
Jill & Emah
When we decided to buy a new home, we knew that finding a great realtor was going to be critical. After working with several realtors who didn`t have our best interests at heart, we found Tara, and everything changed. Through her knowledge and experience, Tara guided us through all aspects of purchasing a new home in a way that was fun, educational and exciting. Her professionalism is second to none and her energy, passion and dedication is amazing and helped us maintain a positive and optimistic mindset, even when we felt discouraged. Tara’s honesty, flexibility and open mindedness further enhanced our home buying experience. Tara Suffield is a fabulous realtor and wonderful human being and we strongly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase or sell their home.
Derek and Erica
Selling my family home, as a single parent, seemed like an overwhelming idea that would be difficult to do alone. Tara kindly and confidently stepped in, with her extensive professional knowledge of every detail of the process, making it easier than I ever imagined it could be! This entire experience has been an extremely positive one... starting with initial meetings about what to expect, followed by practical advice during the walkthrough of my busy house, help with boxes and staging, discussing final listing information, providing beautiful glossy brochures, and finally, completing the sale after just six days of listing! I just sold my house last night, and have already recommended Tara to several people! Many more to come!
Thank you so much, Tara, with gratitude from my whole family!
We loved working with Tara. She was easy to get ahold of. Quick to respond and easily answered all of our questions when purchasing our first home. We highly recommended her!

When the time came for me to start making steps towards looking for a new home for my daughter and I, there was no question who I would trust to help make one of the biggest decisions of my life. Tara had guided us through purchasing our first home and I was determined that she would be there for the next.
A new home and a new start. For an entire year when I first reached out, still unsure of the process, Tara remained connected, letting me know that she was ready and able, when I was ready. House hunting is a daunting task but every step of the way, Tara was there to provide her expansive expertise, knowledge and utmost professionalism. I honestly don’t think I could have done it without her, and even thinking about it makes me cry (with joy!).
There are not enough words to commend this absolute resource. Tara is there when you need her, 100 percent communicative and accessible. Tara is a woman of action and integrity. My daughter and I now have our forever home and feel empowered and supported. From the bottom of my grateful heart, thank you Tara.
We met Tara through a friend and we were so happy we did. Tara was so wonderful to work with. She walked us through every step of the selling process. We really appreciated the walk through and the staging process. When it was time for us to buy, Tara kept in close contact with us ensuring all our questions were answered and we were able to see all the houses that we wanted. We were so happy Tara was our realtor she is so kind, honest and very knowledgeable. Thanks again!!
Tristan and Shaina
We hadn't bought or sold a home in 18 years so there was a lot of this process where we needed help. Tara expertly navigated us through all of it, from practical logistics to unexpected emotion, with professionalism and thoughtfulness.
Kay and Jim
It has been my wonderful fortune to have Tara Suffield by my side to help me sell and then buy my perfect new home. What can often be a very stressful and arduous experience, was made calm and organized by Tara’s exceptional real estate knowledge, professional management skills and all done with a heartfelt and personal touch.
I am so grateful to have had such a wonderful experience. Thank you Tara!
Working with Tara is a dream. She has helped me buy two homes and sell one. Each time I was impressed with her knowledge and professionalism. She also strikes a fine balance between efficiency and genuine warmth — just the kind of support you need when you’re undertaking such major decisions. I’m in my dream home now, and Tara got me here! I’m recommending her to friends and colleagues without hesitation.
Selling my house with Tara was the best experience I’ve ever had with a realtor. Practical, no nonsense, with lots of great advice on value and marketing - that’s Tara. My house sold above asking in less than a week. I would list with her again in a heartbeat.
Tara is a consummate professional. Responsive and knowledgeable, working with her to sell our home was a pleasure. Tara understands that both selling and buying a home are stressful, and worked diligently at every stage in the process to minimize the hassles and bumps that came up, whether that's in recommending a lawyer or working with inspection processes. One of the great things about working with Tara was her tight turnaround time with all communications; she makes you feel as though you're her only client and that your needs are put first. In the commotion of buying, selling, and preparing to move, working with Tara has been a highlight.

Tara is a terrific real estate agent. She was always available, gave me great advice on preparing for showing, gave me feedback after each showing, was always positive and got the job done - SOLD!
Tara is a very charismatic, honest, knowledgeable professional.
Tara excels in many areas especially her knowledge of pricing, location, activity in the neighborhoods and in the wants and needs of her clients. Her attention to detail is exceptional and extraordinary.
All I know is I cant wait until I’m ready for my next house purchase with Tara in my corner. Truly one of a kind!!
There just wouldn’t be anyone else good enough!!
Tara was great to work with! We were very impressed with all the recommendations she gave, from cleaning, maintenance, preparing our house for listing and walking us through the whole process for the first time . Tara addressed all our concerns in a timely manner and we were ecstatic when our home sold 10% more than our asking price. We will be recommending her to all our friends and family!
Chris & Julie
Tara is a River Heights and Crescentwood expert. She knows the neighborhood, the market, the vintage of homes, the typical problems and solutions -- and she knows them well! She doesn't presume to know your thoughts, feelings and emotions, especially with regard to your taste in homes. But when you decide what you like, she is quick to help you with the implementation of that decision. Professional, reliable, interested and engaged. Quite remarkable really
Jon and Rose ~ Cresentwood
Real estate agents are not created equal. I had the pleasure of working with Tara to purchase my home. As a single woman, I was nervous. Tara treated me with respect, commitment and care...like family, really. In a short time she instilled complete confidence in me. She said she planned to find me the perfect home, and she did. Tara is an expert and she knows her business. A true professional. From first steps to posession date Tara made me her #1 priority. Thank you, Tara.
As first-time home buyers, we were somewhat at sea about much of the process. If you’re starting from zero, how do you even know who to pick? Luckily, friends of ours had moved the year before and highly recommended their real estate agent, Tara, telling us that “Tara won’t waste your time, and she knows her business.”
Our friends couldn’t have been more right. Without being impossibly picky, we had fairly specific parameters. I’d heard of people who give their real estate agents their list of “must-haves” only to have the agent try and convince them otherwise. That was never our experience. In our first meeting, Tara asked a few questions, then told us she’d be in touch. Within a day she started sending us listings that matched everything we wanted.
When it came time to seeing houses, Tara always seemed to make it work. When we were actually touring the houses, she was pointing things out that we would never have noticed. Tara always greeted us with the same positive, practical attitude.
When we (finally) got to the point of wanting to make an offer, Tara walked us through it and, once again, gave us the practical advice on how to make a successful offer when there are other offers.
Tara is thorough, knowledgeable, friendly, and reliable. You won’t be disappointed.
Erin and Emmet
When we decided to get our first house we were having a lot of questions about what kind of property we should buy, in what neighborhoods to look for or even what things we needed to pay attention when buying a house! When we hired Tara, we didn't just hired a realtor, but a friend who showed the way of how to make the right choice. She guided us all the way until she found us the perfect house with everything we wanted!! We couldn't have found a better person for the job!
Renata and Giu
We truly valued our experience working with Tara. She helped us get our house ready to sell in an efficient and thorough manner, always with an eye for detail and flair. Tara communicates easily and honestly and brought a high level of professionalism to the process. She knows the market well, particularly in River Heights/Crescentwood and this helped us reach a successful outcome with our house sale.
Thankyou Tara for a job well done!
Christie and Doug River Heights
One word can describe our experience with Tara – Exceptional!
As first-time home buyers we were looking for a Realtor that would assist us with our purchase from start to finish while keeping our needs and budget in mind. Tara absolutely exceeded our expectations and made the entire journey of purchasing our home enjoyable, relaxing and fun. Her communication skills, attention to our needs and knowledge of the market were outstanding. Even after the purchase of our home, Tara made sure that we were 100% satisfied. We simply do not have enough good things to say about our experience working with Tara. We highly recommend her to our family and friends and will be life-long clients of hers.
Serna and Cody
Tara Suffield was extremely knowledgeable about not just the realtor process & the different houses in my area of choice. She was always available to answer any questions, always professional & a great person to be there on your side when making one of the most important decisions of your life.
Always took the time to explain not only the process but your knowledge of different permit processes, contractors, foundation, electrical issues and referrals to the right people.
Kathleen - River Heights
Tara took so much time to ease my mind, explain things I didn't understand, and made me feel that I was a priority. I feel she went above and beyond.
She is truly amazing.

Tara's attention to detail, professionalism. Tara is very thorough and detailed with her work and explanations. Keep up the great work! You should be on a bigger billboard :) move over... here comes Tara Suffield
Danielle - River Heights
Tara is one of the most dedicated, compassionate, hardworking, honest, thorough, detail orientated agents I've ever met. And I know lots of agents! She was a constant source of information and perspective as we waded through the purchasing/selling market.
Nina - Cresentwood
Tara is very professional, knowledgeable and works hard to please her customers. She is also very pleasant to work with. Her approach is to educate rather than to persuade. I felt confident that she would be the right fit for my needs and she definitely was.
Miriam - Riverview
We are so pleased and beyond happy with all the help and knowledge Tara provided. As first time home buyers, we felt all our questions were answered and needs were beyond met! Now situated in our new home, we could not bemore ecstatic about how the whole process went and how Tara was able to walk us through every step of the way.
Helen - Riverview
She showed up when needed ;) Totally fabulous. Totally competent. Just a special Thank YOU!
Scott and Kelsey - Whyte Ridge
Tara has a wonderful open personality. She listened to our wants and needs and was comfortable offering her own suggestions as well. We had a wonderful experience working with Tara. Her professionalism is second to none. Tara was always timely in communicating with us. Greatly appreciated.
Lynne - Wildwood
Tara knows her business and because I know and trust her, I was totally comfortable asking her to lead us throughout the process from start to finish. There is so much to deal with in a real estate transaction and if you haven't done it before it can be a daunting task. I was comfortable asking any questions I had about the buying and selling process. And most importantly...Tara is a professional who you can absolutely trust with one of the most important purchases of your life!
I was also pleased that Tara was able to provide recommendations for additional services that I needed. It is always helpful to receive a referral when one has had personal experience with the service.
Joanne - River Park South
A friend sold her home this summer and had good things to say about Tara. After our initial meeting I appreciated her honesty and knew I could trust her. I really like Tara's no nonsense style. I like the way she continuously emailed me and kept me up to date on what was happening.
Dulcie - Riverview
I think you did it all. You were in an awkward spot, representing the sellers and the buyers, and still held it together. She is very knowledgeable about the area we wanted to live in. And her enthusiasm for her work was a great indicator of her work ethic and personality. You did a great job for us, and we appreciate all the times you came to the house for us. As we were in the USA added another layer of complication to the deal - you took great care of us. Thank you so much.
Carol - Charleswood
Recommended by my brother who had worked with Tara in the past. Once I met her, I was sold :) Perfect, no pressure to buy, really feel she has my best interest at heart and really wants the perfect place for me. There should be more agents like Tara. Experienced, knows how to protect herclients interests, and not about making the sale but about finding the right home for the client. Previous experience shows there are a lot of not so great agents out there.
Within minutes of having contacted Tara and explaining what we were looking for, I was receiving emails
of listings that fit my criteria. Within 72 hours of my first contact with Tara, we had purchased a property and at the first price we offered. You really can’t beat that. I thought, wow, did this really happen?! Tara is the most pleasant to communicate with, possesses a keen sense of humor and I instantly felt a level of comfort.
I have never experienced such prompt and honest service. Tara demonstrated a very good knowledge of the market. She has kept me up to date with other listings that fit my criteria. Tara is the "real deal" as the saying goes. I don't say that about many people. I know she will go the extra mile and I can trust her.
Rob and Michaela - Riverview
Good communicator. Understood our wants and needs. She was very positive and really helped us narrow down our search and really had a common vision for what we needed for our family. We are so happy with our new home and are looking forward to working with her to sell our old place.
Robyn - Charleswood
Tara made my home transition a pleasure. Her realistic approach and honesty enabled me to find the right place for my family. I would highly recommend Tara to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home.
Margaret and Jim - River Park South
Thank you ever so much for making the sale of our family home for 30+ years smooth and stress free. This is a huge change for us but you were most pleasant to work with. You came everytime we had a question, always making time to stay and chat. We are most appreciative of all you did for us and our family. gratefully, Margaret.
Youri and Yanes - St Boniface
My family is very grateful with all the help and support received from our realtor Tara Suffield when we bought our House in 2011. She was knowledgeable, honest, patient, very friendly, helpful and always available to us. We visited many houses with Tara; she worked really hard to find a house to fit our needs. We worked with other realtors before but after meeting Tara there was no question that we had found the ideal person. We will for sure look for Tara if we want to sell or buy another house and we honestly recommend her. We trust in Tara.
Paul - North Kildonan
There's no need to talk this Realtor up with fancy words. The facts speak for themselves. If it wasn’t for Tara’s flexibility and adaptability, I don’t know where I would have ended up. I recall she made some last minute changes to squeeze in a viewing on a house I wanted to act fast on. It was the last viewing of the afternoon, and the deal was sealed at 11:00 pm the same night in the Earls parking lot on Main. That house has since become my home, and I couldn’t be happier! Thanks Tara!
Her initial presentation and preparation when we were interviewing realtors was outstanding. Our experience with Tara was outstanding, and quick (11 days) in a very tough market. When we had to counter a low offer, Tara agreed to put forward a zero conditions offer ("clean sale") that made the final (and often trickiest) part of a sale smooth and simple. We would refer her to anyone buying or selling in the Winnipeg market, and if we come back we'll certainly ask her to help us!
Simon and Jen - Cresentwood
Tara was the only ray of sunshine in our whole moving ordeal. From the moment we met her at her office, until we found the perfect house for us, she was professional, funny, knowledgeable and efficient. Although we are one month into our new house, Tara still keeps in contact. She realized our home purchasing time was limited (5 days) and she took every step to ensure we could get in to see every house on our list. We jumped in her car, and thanks to her careful planning, saw a whirlwind of houses we wanted to see in 2 hours - we never could have been that efficient on our own. She helped us weed some of those out. The next day we headed out to take a more detailed look at those that still remained on our list - plus any others she thought suited us based on what we already liked. She made what was a highly stressful week - almost enjoyable! Thanks for everything!
Janea & Larry - River Heights
Charm! Tara is knowledgeable in the area and the market and has an amazing confidence that reassures clients in the difficult decisions of buying and selling a home.
Tara went above and beyond and still does after the sale and purchase of a new home. She was available at all times and promptly answered all queries. She knew where to look for answers if she didn't have them immediately available.
The people Tara recommended to help get our house ready to sell were great and the work we put into getting the home ready to sell totally paid off, as Tara predicted. Basically just make sure your clients listen and do what you say!
Ben and Liz- Cresentwood
Tara took the time to listen to us and was able to find homes that suited our needs. She advocated for us and helped us to make the right purchase. Moving from Toronto to Winnipeg was not easy. We flew in for the weekend to find a new home. In a very short amount of time, Tara was able to help us find the right home, both suitable for our needs and levels of comfort. She went above and beyond to help get us settled in our new home and our new city.
Matthew and Robyn - River Heights
Personal, tailored services that were efficient, thoughtful and in our absolute best interest at all times. Fantastic! Will absolutely refer her.
All services were performed very well. I appreciated the respect you showed during throughout the process and being blunt with a no BS attitude when required. Furthermore I appreciated the constant follow up throughout the process to let us know we were on the top of the priority list.... We mattered.
Dan and Kim Deer Lodge
Tara is a true professional and our experience with her was perfect across the board. She is incredibly knowledgeable and was completely responsive to our needs. The thing that stands out the most is the personal. I think Tara was just as excited as we were about our new home purchase and the subsequent sale of our home. She truly cares about her clients and she went above and beyond in all regards to assure that we got the very best. We are proud to call Tara not just our Realtor, but also our friend.
Jon and Tamara - Cresentwood
Tara was always with us from Day 1. She helped us throughout the years looking at houses and making a few offers here and there. Even if the house was an hour away she would meet us there as soon as she could. Intheend she helped us seal the deal with a beautiful home and we couldn't be happier. She is truly an expert at what she does and always had the answers to our questions whether it was good or bad.
She didn't beat around the bush - she is straight to the point and truthful. We never dealt with a realtor before Tara but we know that she is definitely one of a kind realtor and I have very high expectations now because she is so fantastic! I don't think we would have received the same amount of support in finding the perfect home with anyone else. Tara was more than we could have ever have hoped for! Thank You!
Candance and Mike Transcona
Jennifer and Justin - South Pointe
She seemed very organized, competent, and professional. We were overwhelmed by how simple and helpful things were made. Tara is very easy to get a hold of and always got back to us very quickly. She was also always very helpful when we had questions or concerns.
Tara did what she said she would do, when she said it would happen. It was refreshing to have a true professional take us through our journey to sell our home. And, having a fun sense of humour was a huge bonus.
