" Tara helped me through the process of acquiring two investment properties. She located exactly what I was looking for, handled the negotiations, & closed the transactions all while I was in Ohio. She then scheduled and oversaw all contractors needed to prepare the properties for rent. By the time the work was completed she had tenants ready to move in. She has managed my properties in a professional manner without a hitch ever since. Tara is the hardest working realtor/manager in the sunshine state. "

" This letter is in reference to the services provided by Tara Bolesta through Palm Oasis Realty & Management Inc., as my property management company, and real estate agency as the listing broker for my former home in Palmetto, Florida. I have known Tara to have extensive knowledge and experience in real estate sales and rentals throughout the area for many years. Tara managed my property for over seven years and did a wonderful job. I asked Tara to list the property for sale in December and she went above and beyond, not only to get my rental property ready for sale, but also guiding me through any and all processes required. Tara's extensive marketing and sales experience showed immediately in her approach to marketing my home. Her contacts within the real estate community, hard work and creativity produced great exposure to potential buyers. Tara was able to find a suitable buyer for my home and was a very smooth and comfortable process.

Tara’s services went way beyond just being a realtor for me. Palm Oasis and Tara Bolesta also acted as my management company for over 7 years prior to selling my property. Tara worked tirelessly before and during the rental process to make sure both the renters and myself were comfortable with the process. Mine and my wife’s work load and personal life did not allow for time to manage the property ourselves. This is where Tara and Palm Oasis came in and not only finding renters but truly managing the property as if it where their own. Before renting the property, we discussed some remodel work that we both felt would make the property more marketable as a rental and ultimately add value for sale. Tara coordinated the planning, bidding, and supervision for any project. The result was quality workmanship at a competitive price that ultimately facilitated a quick rental to a well-qualified tenant whose rent covered much of my holding costs for over a year. Tara's sense of management of the project left me free to focus on my family without worry. After the tenants were moved in, Tara always addressed every issue that came up related to the management of the tenant and property. My role with regard to the rental was reduced to simply depositing the check each month. Her accounting and maintenance records were precise.

I have been exposed to many realtors and property managers over the years and believe that Tara brings and incredible depth of experience that is unmatched by her peers. I am certain that I obtained the maximum value for my home due to her diligent and conscientious management at every diverse phase was excellent and reassuring. Tara’s regular communication at every phase was excellent and reassuring. Her services were flexible to my goals for the property, and competitively priced. I highly recommend Tara and Palm Oasis to any property owner who is looking for more than a Realtor, but a true advocate for their real estate needs.


" When looking for a realtor, one would expect someone knowledgeable, forthright and trustworthy. One that gets the job done in a timely manner. But along with all of that, people in need of a realtor really want someone that is on their side. Someone that takes the time to know the home they want or the home they are selling. Someone that goes to bat for them. Someone that is there time and time again, proves themselves invaluable and is a leader in their field mostly from word of mouth and long-term relationships. This is Tara Bolesta and Palm Oasis Realty. I have had the sincere pleasure of knowing and working with Tara personally and professionally for over a decade. Whether it was having Tara help us out selling condominiums at Savannah Preserve at University Place, help us to sell personal homes for the developer, help us out with finding homes for new staff, assist my family moving to town or even buy a home myself, I have personally seen the commitment she provides to her customers and a drive that guarantees success. Tara Bolesta is a unique woman. Her success in real estate is also backed by her success in every endeavor she embraces. Tara instinctively helps people, not only in real estate but in the community. Her ability to help lower income families obtain child care to her buying and opening her personal land to help abused animals shows her compassion towards others. But most of all, it gives an inside look into Tara’s tireless ability that is bestowed on every client. I have met over 3000 realtors over my many years in business and Tara is one of a small handful that I can honestly point out as a true professional that I would want to help myself, my family, and anyone in need of real estate services."

" We recommend Tara and Palm Oasis 100% and without reservation. As out-of-state owners of 2 SFR properties in Lakewood Ranch we went through 2 unsatisfactory experiences with property managers before meeting and hiring Tara and Palm Oasis. Since that time our properties have not only been extremely well maintained but our tenant issues have also been reduced to almost nothing. Due to Tara and her staff's high level of efficiency and experience, owning our properties has finally started to provide "passive income", the holy grail of real estate ownership. "
