When Tara Tarrant and Wynette Bownds started Southland Real Estate Group they knew they were creating something unique. As local moms, neighbors and top-producing real estate agents, their decision to join talents and work together as equal partners have resulted in unparalleled real estate service to the area.
Just like shoes, earrings and cupcakes - everything is better in pairs.
So what’s better than a pair of experienced real estate agents? Not Your Average Real Estate Group In 2013, Tara and Wynette met on a lark when they lived in the same neighborhood and discovered they had both recently gotten their real estate license. They ended up working for the same brokerage and trained on the same team under a veteran real estate agent. Turns out they had similar goals, ambitions and values - so supporting and helping each other out early on was just meant to be.
As their careers blossomed, they came to the conclusion that it made sense to officially partner up, and they formed Southland Real Estate Group. Southland is a full time, full service boutique-style team with the support and backing of a large Texas-based brokerage, JP and Associates Realtors. Tara and Wynette work in tandem. They combine their skills and find joy in providing the highest level of individualized customer service. “When you work with us, you get two creative, hard working, dedicated professionals who are constantly communicating and working together. We each bring something unique to the table. We have found our collaboration and close working relationship to be a tremendous benefit to our clients,” says Tara.
Meet Tara and Wynette
Living, working and raising their families in the area has given the pair an intimate knowledge of the market. They thoroughly enjoy helping folks and families that are looking to purchase a home here and the surrounding areas. Wynette has a grown daughter with special needs and another who is a Byron Nelson High School graduate and now attends the University of Oklahoma. Tara has one child at Louisiana State University and two others that attend school in Argyle.
“With us, you get twice the expertise, twice the knowledge and twice the service. Our partnership is truly unique in this industry,” says Wynette.
Tara’s interest in real estate began at an early age. The OSU graduate had always dabbled in the real estate world - from flipping houses to commercial investments, so getting her real estate license was a natural progression. This Argyle wife and mother has worked nearly every aspect of the industry, but prefers the relationships with clients on the residential side of the business. Wynette was born and raised in DFW and is a Texas A&M business and marketing graduate. After spending years moving about the country as a Navy wife, she was more than ready to return and settle down in this area. Obtaining her real estate license was a natural fit for her and her desire to focus on the community that raised her. Now a resident of Trophy Club, Wynette uses her experience from the many years of relocating her family to help others settle into their new homes.
