Helping and serving others is my passion. After a rewarding career in the healthcare industry, McLaren Northern Michigan and it’s affiliate Vital Care, for 20+ years I made the decision to begin helping others in a different way- real estate! Born and raised in Boyne City has allowed me to witness and appreciate the beauty that Northern Michigan offers- this is a great advantage and helps me to relate to my client’s needs by using my firsthand knowledge of the area. I have been blessed to raise my son in a community that takes pride in their town and each other and I want to help others fulfill their dreams to live in such an area as well. I take great pride in helping my clients buy and sell their homes and approach each transaction with integrity and honesty. My strong work ethic drives me to give my clients the best experience and build the trust that is so important in real estate.

My life has been spent exploring the area doing all the things I love- hunting, fishing, hiking, boating, and gardening. I have also been fortunate to travel and see many other beautiful parts of the country and abroad- but for me nothing has ever compared to what I see out my window every day! I encourage you to come and see what northern Michigan is all about- come hike any of our amazing trials, relax on any of our beautiful beaches and do so while having a conversation with one of the friendly locals. Helping others is where my heart has always been and I feel so fortunate to be part of fulfilling your real estate dreams.

Reviews on Zillow


“I have been visiting the Petosky area of Northern Michigan for almost 40 years, and always had an interest in buying a lakefront property but never acted on the impulse. Opportunity arose last year, and after visiting Café Sante several times, started thinking about Boyne City. As an experienced real estate appraiser and broker, I have developed a keen sense of knowing what I don’t know. And while I am able to analyze a market from afar, I still can’t replicate the knowledge of one who lives and works within that market. I feel fortunate to have found such a person in Tara Belford. As a life-long resident she has knowledge of the various communities that make up this incredible part of Michigan; the vendors and service providers an “outsider” needs to consult from time to time; and the motivation and energy to make things happen.

She is also a personable and charming individual who after a short time seems like someone you’ve known forever.
I consider myself a harsh grader within my profession. I give this young lady an “A”, and along with that my hearty recommendation as your agent for buying or selling within Tara’s market area.
David Masten
And I should add that since buying, the local residents that I’ve met are some of the friendliest and genuine people I’ve ever encountered. The minute I pass the city limits for home I want to turn around and come back.” Review

Bought a home in 2020 in Horton Bay, Boyne City, MI 49712.

“We worked with Tara to purchase our condo and to sell it as well. She is the consummate professional sales person. She listened to our needs for both buying as well as selling our home on Lake Charlevoix. She is patient, understanding to our needs and wants and her ability to provide quality on time assistance exceeded our expectations. Her marketing program was second to none…quality wise and timely. We highly recommend Tara to help you find your dream home or sell your home in Northern Michigan.

Bought and sold a Condo home in 2019 in Boyne City, MI.

“the purchase of my up north cabin became very difficult with the underwriter and the bank because of the private road and other legal issues, but Tara got it done. she is super friendly and always called me back right away. I was kept informed and up to date more by her than I was by my loan officer. I would highly recommend her! If your looking for your up north dream cabin, call Tara!” Review
