Thank You for visiting Tara Lubin

REALTOR® with @properties

Welcome to my website and passion: providing a unique level of assistance for people who want to buy or sell a home.  As an experienced broker/REALTOR with No. 1 @properties, it is a joy and honor to be trusted with the job of providing guidance and support with what is likely to be the largest investment in their lives. I’m personally invested in making sure it leads to home happiness, inner harmony and financial success.

For those looking to buy a home, I offer a different search philosophy: I want to find you a home that “lets you be you.” That means finding a space that fits you — and your family if you have one. It should suit you physically, emotionally with a vibrant energy level that can spark growth. A home should never hold you back; it should always encourage growth.

For those selling a home, letting you be you means assuring your comfortability and satisfaction in every aspect of the transaction, from the offer, through the negotiation process, all the way to the closing.

Wilmette is my home and has been for a long time. I’ve sold and rented many homes in the area. I have experienced our lovely library, “the world’s greatest omelet” at Sarkis, and not so long walks on the beach. I know the community and am savvy regarding the ever-evolving real estate market in Wilmette, Winnetka and all along the North Shore. In my heart, it’s home and I promise you’ll feel at home with me and @properties..


Buy, Sell, Live Well with Your Best North Shore Realty Team:

Tara Lubin and @properties

If you’re selling your home, it’s most likely that you’re ready to move on with your life to someplace new that gives you more of an opportunity to be you in an environment that is supportive and life-sustaining.

On my part, I will use my determination, market knowledge and aesthetic sensibility to prep and stage your home for its time in the spotlight. The right pricing is paramount and rests a lot on research I do, but I’ve learned that pricing properly can be an art form requiring sensitivity and timing.

If you like, I can help you repair, renovate and even stage your home. I work with companies who can get everything done for you and for most homes you won’t have to pay for those valuable services and improvements until closing.

I also have connections to home inspection specialists, landscapers, mortgage brokers, title companies, and more. My biggest resource, of course, is @properties, the largest independent real estate brokerage firm in Illinois. @properties is number one in Wilmette and Winnetka and the name of the firm is respected and valued everywhere on the North Shore, Chicagoland and beyond.

I’m assisted (and you are too), by @properties active promotional efforts and brilliant use of technology. This is vitally important now as we utilize virtual and in person showings and even contactless closings to ensure your safety and comfortability with the buying and selling process.

I believe my efforts and everything I bring to the table will put an “under contract” sign on your front lawn within the shortest amount of time at the largest price possible and you likely will even have fun in the process.

Want to Rent Rather Than Buy?
Say Hello to the Right
Real Estate Agent.

Forget hefting 50 lb. bags of mulch around and carrying the financial burden of a mortgage. Leave the crowded, hectic, city-scape and escape to wide-open spaces of the North Shore. Get a new lease on life when you sign a lease for rental property using me (Tara Lubin) as a very experienced, hard-working agent with a lot of knowledge and many connections in the rental world.  Tell me what you are looking for and odds are I will know where to look to find it for you.

I have long-standing relationships with landlords and property managers. Here’s a secret—I’ve got secret sources and know of many properties not on the MLS. I’d love to be put to work on your behalf locating – and negotiating—a lease for an apartment or house that suits your wants, needs, budget and lifestyle. Whether you seek a high-rise condo or a quiet home in a gated community, we can latch on to it (ahem) quickly at a rate that doesn’t fence you in (ahem again).

If you own a rental property, I know the must-have’s and do’s and don’ts. We can work together to set the stage for rapid rental success.  If you’d like, I can stop by and perform a rental property evaluation FREE of charge.  I can walk through your property, provide you with a list of recommended fix up’s and possible upgrades and give you an estimate of the rental rate your property is worth in today’s market both before and after the upgrades.

If you’ve got a fixer upper on your hands I have a wide range of trades-people for every job and budget. Always remember that upgrading generally means an ability to increase rents and your raise rental income.


Tara was awesome to work with. She’s patient, responsive, and clearly knows the area well. I was super happy with the overall experience, and she went above and beyond to check in throughout the process. Most impressively, she treats every client as a long-term neighbor. Our conversations never felt “transactional”, and I always felt she had my best interests in mind.

You won’t find an agent who will work harder for you than Tara. She knows the real estate market, is a strong negotiator, and extremely personable and supportive throughout the home-buying process!

I’m convinced you just won’t find a better real estate agent in the Chicagoland area –– Tara’s knowledge, work ethic and affable nature will help you find the perfect house and she will intelligently guide and advice you with every aspect of the home-buying experience! I would give more than five stars if I could.


Tara is an excellent, realistic, consumer-friendly agent! She made the process so great for us. She was extremely communicative and made sure we understood every step in the process. Would highly recommend her as not only did she get us a great deal, but has even helped us after the closing date.
