Hello, my name is Tara Stahl. I grew up in the tiny town of Topeka located in LaGrange County. So imagine my surprise when I moved to Elkhart 20 years ago and places stayed open past 5 pm on a Saturday. After settling down, I got married and had 5 kids, got 3 dogs, and developed a love for travel. I love going and exploring our state and county parks; but as you can guess traveling with five kids is not for the faint of heart! I have worked at a few different jobs over the years. The last being at Carson’s in Elkhart, were I learned: management, gained sales experience, and many other important skills. All of which goes great with my natural gift of gab. Several years ago my husband and I bought our first house. I will never forget the excitement, when we signed the papers or when we talked to the kids about their new rooms, colors, and other decor. Add in two children, born at home, and I understand that a house isn't just a place to sleep but where families are built. It's a place where memories are made and stories are stored, sometimes they are literally written on the walls. It’s a treasure trove of family histories and dreams. So much more than just timbers and brick. I sincerely hope you allow me to help author the next chapter in your family’s story.
