Dara TapleyRealtor

Let me introduce myself…..

I have spent the majority of my adult life in Business Management working in an office from 8 to 5 each day never feeling completely satisfied with my career. I made the decision to get into Real Estate because it was a career that offered me the opportunity to use my energy to get out of the office and to help others make their dreams and goals come true. I thoroughly enjoy working with people and forming new relationships and friendships and this business definitely allows me that opportunity.

I pride myself on honesty and hard work. I have always been very driven and have challenged myself to succeed in all that I decide to do. I can assure you that choosing me as your agent means that you will get nothing less than my full dedication and the attention required to get the results you are striving for. Whether it is listing your home or representing you in buying a new home, I will work hard to develop a relationship of trust and to keep it.

I know buying and/or selling a home can be a very stressful and even an emotional time; my goal is to take the work and pressure off of my clients so that they can have a pleasant experience that will lead to new beginnings for them and their families.

    Bought a singleFamily home in 2020 for approximately $250K.
    Hey Folks, We were first time home buyers like many of you until Dara came into our lives. Ever since the start, Dara was lookin for us non-stop; like a miner looking for Gold, she was looking for our precious home! She found so many houses that fit our likes and avoided our dislikes. Even when we were still living 6,000 miles away in Germany she sent us countless of number of homes that met the description of our “Dream Home”. We Found that home on the First day looking at the Second house, we just didn’t know it yet... She continued to show us around to 20 other houses all over Arkansas that we were interested in. Not once during this entire time did she try to push us into a house or talk us out of one. Dara was unbiased and only tried to gently teach us about home buying and the “Process”. She saved us from several bad decisions... Dara has the patience of a saint, putting up with our thousands of questions and perfectionist attitudes. She helped us get the best deal when we finally made the decision on the house we wanted. Not only did she help us with this but gave us great suggestions on other home buying necessities (Home Warranty, Insurance, Septic Tank, Pest Control, etc.). They indeed turn out to be, after hours of research, the best products, services and value we could buy. All this leads us to believe, All and All, Dara is the most Honest, Hardworking, and Godly Relator to sell homes in the area. Please choose Dara for your Relator, you won’t regret it!

    Bought a singleFamily home in 2019 for approximately $200K.
    Dara was wonderful to work with! My husband and I both have irregular work schedules and Dara was so flexible to work around our schedules, even on short notice. She's friendly, very knowledgeable, and made buying a home a stress-free experience!

    Extremely patient and never stops working to find the perfect place for the right price. Regularly goes above and beyond to help her clients. Genuinely cares. Responds quickly and can explain the processes well. I'd recommend Dara to everyone.

    Bought a singleFamily home in 2016 for approximately $150K.
    Dara Tapley sold me my home in the Greenbrier area and I could not be happier with my property or the job Dara did finding it for me. Dara's integrity and work ethic was so refreshing, she is one class act!

    Bought a singleFamily home in 2015.
    As a first time home buyer, I did not know what to expect heading into the process. Dara was extremely helpful in every step of the process and made buying a home a breeze. She helped me find an absolutely perfect home and was wonderful every step of the way. I plan on using her for any future home buying I might do in the Central Arkansas area.

    Bought a singleFamily home in 2015 for approximately $200K.
    My husband and I began looking to purchase a home in March of 2015. It took us nearly 7 months to find the one that was perfect for us. Dara showed us many homes, often with a days notice. She was extremely patient with us until we found the one.

    Bought a home in 2016 in Lena, Benton, AR 72015.
    There are literally hundreds, if not thousands, of Real Estate Agents to choose from when looking for a home. Having worked with a few less than stellar agents in the past, I spent some time researching agents in the Conway area before contacting any of them. We were in the market for income properties, and we wanted an agent that we could work with on several transactions, so advance research was key for us.

    After creating a short list of 5-6 potential candidates from the dozens we had sifted through online, we came across Dara's Agent Profile and it was immediately apparent that she should be at the top of the list simply due to the fact that she paid attention to detail and took the time to keep her online information current (if an agent can't take the time to properly market themselves, how are they going to market a house effectively?).

    She soon proved to us how invaluable she was going to be as a part of our team buying and selling single family homes as investment properties. At one of our first meetings, she put together an entire detailed packet of current rental rates for the different areas of Conway, and she highlighted all the pertinent information in the entire packet (it was a HUGE packet of information, and she had gone through page by page to pick out the important pieces). There were also some nights, during hours when most people would be asleep, that Dara was researching properties and emailing us details and her thoughts on them for what we were looking for.

    I'm sure there were some times when she wasn't working on looking at properties for us, but from our perspective, my wife and I felt like Dara was ALWAYS looking at properties for us. We know she was working with other clients as well, but she always made us feel as if she was working only with us, and we always felt like we were a priority and that she was an active member of our team. While some people may prefer that the agent do all the work, my wife and I typically do all of our own research and digging, and honestly, had found more suitable properties on our own than any agent we had ever worked with. Dara, on the other hand outperformed us - which had never happened before, but was a very nice turn of events.

    If my wife and I could clone Dara, we would. She is probably the most detail-oriented, hardest working, nicest and most caring person we have ever had the pleasure of working with. Even though we set impossible and ever-changing goals, Dara never complained; she simply accepted the challenge and excelled at finding exactly what we were looking for, many times over. She went well above and beyond, even when it wasn't necessary, but she never tried to push anything on us that we didn't want. She listened well, and took what we said and ran with it.

    Although several reviews of agents say "Best Realtor around" or something along those lines, I think you would be hard pressed to find anyone who is better than Dara - in the area, in the state, or even beyond that. Yes, she is that good and is extremely enjoyable to work with.

    Why we would recommend Dara to anyone:

    Communication - She is excellent at communicating and choosing the proper method of communication for the message. She will text, email or call as appropriate for the situation.

    Responsiveness - Most of the time her response to a text, email or phone call is immediate (within just a few minutes). Her response is not an "I'll get back to you", but is a meaningful response to your question.

    Extreme Attention to Detail - Not only does she pay attention to details, but she keeps track of any and all communications involved in a transaction. The amount of correspondence she kept from our lender, the appraiser, title company, selling agent, seller, in addition to our communication was impressive. I can't imagine how impressive it would be to see a record of all her correspondence with all of her clients.

    Team player - From day one, Dara was on our team and was looking out for our interests. Rather than trying to push us into something that we did not want, it was obvious that our satisfaction was her primary focus.

    Hardworking and Diligent - Dara spent many long hours researching for us, running neighborhood comps, as well as compiling a list of rental rates for areas we were interested in. I'm sure she took some time off during the period we worked with her, but it was never obvious to us when she wasn't working. It seemed as though she was working 24/7, from the time we started looking for a house, to the time we closed on the house, and she has even followed up with us a few times after we closed. She is completely committed to her clients and their happiness.

    What a Blessing Dara has been to our family. She helped my son with the purchase of his 1st house. Then I used her in a land purchase. She was always easy to communicate with, very prompt in returning calls, text, or e-mails. We had an Excellent Experience and would highly recommend her!

    Dara went above and beyond in helping us sell our first home and buy a new one in November 2015. She was always kind, respectful, and found out the answers to any and all questions we had (if she didn't know them immediately off-hand). She was a blessing to work with, and should we need to sell and buy again, we look forward to working with her again.
