Real Estate Agent with Village Properties


OK – so you are reading my blog.  I haven't thought much about what I planned to write, but I knew it would be about where I live. I have been a resident Sands Point of this town too long to give worry about where my Blogs would be posted, but I would like to introduce myself.  As you can probably see, my name is Tara Downing and I am a Licensed Sales Associate.  I have an office in central Nassau County, but I reside in Sands Point.  I also have a number of friends who are also clients/customers interested in both upgrading or downsizing within Sands Point, New York or Port Washington, New York.  I also have friends from out of town looking to take advantage of the current market to make a great purchase.


In case you don’t know me, I am including a photo.

Take a  second look because we've probably met.   I help buyers and sellers in our hometown with real estate transactions, but I am also at a baseball field, lacrosse field, or one of dozens of other venues.  Basically, with my husband and three kids, I am zooming around town for one reason or another, and it feels like I am doing it 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.


The difference between getting a house and not getting a house, or finding that seller willing to pay the extra dollar, makes all the difference.  As a long-term resident and long-term real estate agent, I keep my work and pleasure separate.


However, if you ever get even the slightest feeling that your agent is representing someone’s interests other than yours, I know how you feel. 


My husband and I bought a house here a decade ago, and have worked with countless buyers and sellers since that date in acquiring or selling their properties; many of whom thought they they were lost causes.

My husband & I may just be breaking 40, but we’ve lived in the area for more than half of our lives, and out kids have spent their entire lives here.  If I can give you a hand or even just answer a question, give me a call anytime.  My cell is 516-317-5303 and my office line is 516-741-5960.

That's why we love you.  You could be waspy or, well, other politically incorrect types of person.  But, you just sem to be a good broker of real estate.

We all love you Tara.  Even if you lived in the swamps of NY, we'd make sure you had a nice swamp.

So you're a real estate agent who just happens to be a very active mom. How do you handle two professions like that at the same time? lol

And something else I now know about you ---  you're a night owl!

Heck, as late as you stay up, you're practically a morning person. I was shocked to see your comment on my blog since it was already past 3 am your time!

By the way, I used to work in Melville, and lived in Hauppauge. I loved Long Island but hated Long Island Expressway which someone told me is the world's longest parking lot.
