ABOUT THE BLASER YOAKUM TEAM TEXAS
Brenda Blaser and Pam Yoakum have created a team of professionals that demonstrate a diverse skill set and expertise for the purchase and sale of real estate. The Blaser Yoakum Team has been helping families and investors buy and sell real estate since 1995 and take pride in the experience, integrity, and results offered to clients.
Because of our in-depth knowledge of Texas communities, we enable home buyers to make educated decisions about the city and neighborhood they choose to live in. This is especially beneficial for our national or international clients who are unfamiliar with the North Texas & San Antonio area. We’ll be with you throughout the entire home buying or selling process to help you:
Find Your Next Home
When you’re looking to buy a new home, you need an agent who will work with your best interests at heart. The Realtors at Blaser Yoakum know which aspects of home buying are important to you, including neighborhood details like amenities and security. Our team has special access to tax and school statistics to help you make a better informed decision on a purchase. We know Texas cities and neighborhoods inside and out, and we work with you to find a home that fits your needs and your budget.
Sell a Home
When it’s time to move, you need someone who will advertise and market your home, show it to potential buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee inspections, handle all paperwork, and supervise the closing process. We are equipped to take care of everything you need from start to close.
Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Buyers don’t always visualize living in your home the way you do. We can make your home attractive to its ideal audience, which can help you get top dollar when the home sells. Even simple changes like painting the walls, updating the carpet, or adding a few new accessories to your rooms can make all the difference when it comes time to leverage your home’s value. We have access to professional stagers and high quality vendors and can make all necessary arrangements on your behalf.

- Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR)

Marilyn Newman, Realtor® SRES
Marilyn moved to Texas in 2000 due to her husband, David’s, corporate relocation. They chose Southlake, TX as their first home because of the convenience it afforded in commuting to work and the DFW Airport. When David retired, they decided to ‘right size’ to a lower maintenance home in Keller, TX. Each time they moved, her realtor told her that she should be in real estate. Realtor friends echoed that sentiment and after a 28-year career with American Express Company, Marilyn decided to take some time off to explore her “creative side” and get involved in community service. Marilyn joined the Blaser Yoakum Team at Keller Williams DFW – Southlake, in 2013.
Marilyn understands that one of the most challenging decisions we are faced with as we age comes from realizing that our current home no longer supports our needs. To some the thought of relocation is exciting…but to most of us, it is overwhelming! Having assisted family and friends when their home was no longer accommodating, Marilyn realized that what we all have in common is the stress that comes with the questions, “Where to begin? How to prepare the house for sale?” and, “What to take to the new home?” As a designated Seniors Real Estate Specialist® Marilyn has the education, experience and resources to serve as your trusted adviser with the goal of helping you navigate through your transition in relocating or selling your family home

Client Care Coordinator
Tara was born into an Air Force family, and by the time she moved to Colleyville at age 13 she had already lived in five states. She relates very closely to the line “I wasn’t born in Texas, but I got here as fast as I could!”. For her parents, moving to Colleyville was a homecoming; her mom grew up in Hurst and her Dad grew up in Colleyville, and it quickly became her home as well. She attended Texas Tech University, majoring in Advertising, and spent a few years in the radio business doing advertising sales. She took a job in Colorado Springs, Colorado, where she met her husband, Jayson, who was active duty Air Force. During her time in Colorado, she transitioned into banking. In 2012, the military moved them all the way to Fairbanks, Alaska, where she continued working for Wells Fargo until they welcomed their son, Jaxon, and she became a stay-at-home mom. After spending three years in Fairbanks, they were stationed in Phoenix, Arizona in 2015 where they welcomed their second son, Sawyer, only four short weeks after moving to Phoenix. Jayson retired from 20 years of service in March 2017, and by July they moved back to Tara’s hometown of Colleyville. Tara and her husband were thrilled about making this move and finally being able to lay down some roots.
Real Estate is something Tara had always wanted to do, and she feels that her own experiences of moving throughout her life give her a deep understanding of just how important it is to find a home and neighborhood that you love, as well as a community that you can be proud of. She loves working with people and getting to know them on a personal level, and feels her passion for Real Estate combined with her strong interpersonal skills have led her to her dream job.
Tara loves to be with her family; whether it’s taking her sons to the park, or enjoying a weekly Sunday dinner with four generations of family, she can typically be found doing something with them. She has a passion for health and fitness, and enjoys going over to Lifetime Fitness several times a week with her husband and children. As a child, she had many memories of being out on the lake with her grandparents, and now she is excited to see her boys grow up going on boat rides and go tubing just like she did. Tara does a lot of volunteering at her son’s school, and is very involved in her church, First Colleyville, where she volunteers and is part of a bible study and small group. She has also been part of a local MOPS group, or Moms of Preschoolers, for the past two years.
