About Ballou Company
Serving California's Real Estate Needs.
Ballou Company was founded by Tara Anderson in 2012 and named after her father, Mike Ballou. Mr. Ballou is a real estate investor himself, which inspired Tara to get into the industry at a very young age.
At Ballou Company, our goal is to help you with your real estate needs throughout California. We help our clients buy and sell residential properties, commercial properties, equestrian estates, vacant land, and more. We also do quite a bit of commercial leasing and property management. Our mission is to meet and exceed your needs no matter how big, or how small, the transaction might be.
We cater to the homeowner because we are homeowners;
we cater to the real estate investor because we are investors;
and we cater to the equestrian community because we are equestrians.
We have agents throughout California, we have clients throughout California, and we have experience in all types of real estate. When it comes to real estate, we will be there with you every step of the way.
