Tara L. Stokes
Tara joined the IPC team in 2013 bringing with her a diversified perspective on the local commercial real estate market. In 2002 shortly after graduating from Hamilton College (Clinton, NY) she moved to Naples and immersed into our business community with a position working for the director of the Economic Development Council of Collier County (EDC).Tara worked most closely with the local business executives serving on their Public Policy Committee and EDC Board of Directors, many of whom were principally involved in commercial real estate brokerage, investments, and development. The EDC’s priorities such as civic accountability, regenerative investment capital, economic diversity/sustainability, and responsible growth, were strengthened and promoted in much part by these business leaders in the commercial real estate industry.
After the EDC Tara learned the internal operations side of commercial real estate by working for a local developer/landlord doing leasing administration and construction management. From there she took on the role of property manager for 20+ neighborhood shopping centers and flex/warehouse properties from Naples to Punta Gorda. This position afforded Tara a hands-on opportunity to communicate daily with – and on behalf of – a broad spectrum of commercial tenants, building owners and business vendors.
Understanding these dynamic relationships and interests contributing to our commercial real estate market enables Tara to effectively consult with clients, at any level, so to best meet their needs.
