About Taj

Taj’s entrepreneurial background has prepared her for the diverse and ever-changing world of real estate. Whether buying or selling she will guide you through the process and utilize her hand picked team of specialists to give you the best edge possible. From marketing tools to negotiating skills, Taj has the resources to find you the best deal for your home and future.

Taj comes from a long line of real estate and entrepreneurialism. Her great grandfather & grandfather owned and operated a real estate investment company, R.E. Harris, Inc. established in 1928 and based in NNN Ground Leases. Today it is R.E. Harris, LLC which is run by Taj (who also acts as Treasurer) and her mother and two cousins. Taj always had a latent passion for real estate, though initially she was unsure how to incorporate into her life an industry that seemed extremely conservative. As a naturally artistic person, Taj gravitated towards arts and sciences and was especially curious about alternative medicine.

Before finding her place in real estate, Taj owned and operated two successful businesses. As a highly skilled body piercer, Taj was trained by the best and worked at the most prestigious shops throughout her piercing career and through out the world at that time. She also owned her own shop on Melrose Ave. for over a decade. Prior to her life as a Gauntlet-trained body piercer, she graduated from the National Holistic Institute in Emeryville, California, where she was educated in both the Eastern & Western styles of massage and therapeutic body work in 1992. Both massage & body piercing are trades, and in a sense always in you; both of these skills have rendered Taj cool under pressure with sharp reflexes and critical problem solving techniques. Her diverse background and technical experience have prepared Taj to be a powerful advocate for her clients and a reliable real estate agent whom you can trust.

The vast world of real estate allows Taj to bring all of her interests under one roof, so to speak. She is deeply passionate about how we live in our homes, and how our homes affect our health and the communities in which we reside. She has continued her education in real estate and in the benefit of energy efficient, sustainable healthy homes for families and communities. She has been multiply certified by EcoBroker, Build It Green, the National Association of Realtors and more. It brings Taj added satisfaction when she can increase affordability, comfort and promote a healthier environment for her clients, friends, & family. Taj’s interest in design & healing come full circle as she continues to develop her skills in green design and home solutions.

While in San Diego she works with Jim Simcoe of Simcoe Green Homes, a green developer and broker. In Los Angeles, she’s extremely proud to work with the Clarkliving team.
