In 1992, she relocated to Annapolis and worked as an Asset Manager on the Koll Bren Opportunity Funds where she developed and implemented real estate strategies for 2.2 million square feet of office, flex, industrial and retail real estate projects. She coordinated the capital renovation of functionally obsolete and environmentally impaired assets by orchestrating teams of contractors, architects, engineers and leasing agents to achieve above average returns on investments.
As Director of Real Estate for SAP America, Inc., Tara negotiated the acquisition, land development approval and construction contract for the American headquarters on a 190-acre property in Newtown Square, PA. In addition, she developed and implemented a strategic plan for offices throughout the country re-engineering office standards, creating a facilities management team and lease administration plan resulting in reduced overhead and broader exposure.

She also provided investment advisory services for shopping centers, office, industrial, multi-family and student housing projects.
