Local real estate agent Tara Torkkola was born to lead.
As one of Byron Shire's leading sales associates, Tara is the consummate professional; well connected, confident and savvy with a track record that speaks for itself.
Tara is fiercely independent, thriving on the competitive nature of real estate, the opportunity to connect with people from all walks of life and the chance to form long-lasting relationships with her clients.
In her first five years with First National Byron Bay, she secured record prices for properties across the shire and her impressive portfolio includes coastal townhouses, family homes and large rural properties from Byron Bay and Bangalow to Mullumbimby and the hinterland.
Described by those who know her as an 'old soul', Tara is very much at home in her Byron Shire community. Combining her greatest loves (1920-1960s era music and people), she helped start the shire's first Swing Dancing School and she runs weekly 1940'S swing dance classes in Byron Bay and Bangalow that attract young, old, novices and pros from around the shire. She's proof that anything's possible with enthusiasm, knowledge and commitment.
Working as part of a team she refers to as 'family', Tara has an enviable edge when it comes to selling real estate and is the agent of choice for many local vendors.
