Dom and Tara Zimmer and their real estate business are synonymous with indefatigable work effort,
diligence and the spirit of accomplishing any goal or task.
Their level of attention to the needs of clients past and present has earned The Zimmer’s a well-
respected and established reputation in the Treasure Valley as a husband and wife real estate team that

simply beyond reproach, this has led them to an ever growing base of referral and repeat clients.

process. From initial contact to handing over the keys, whether it’s your very first time purchasing a
home or selling a property or if you’re a seasoned pro that moves every few years, Dom and Tara

Before real estate: Dom was a commercial fisherman in Alaska. (Yes, kinda like “The Deadliest Catch”)
He earned a USCG Master’s License, served as deckhand, Chief Engineer, Mate and Captain. He fished
almost year round for Pollock, Cod and King Crab. Dom and Tara owned a Salmon fishing boat in Bristol
Bay, Alaska, where they spent summers together fishing for Sockeye Salmon.
Tara stayed home (while not fishing for Salmon) and managed the household and business affairs, while
raising three children. Davis, Reagan and Max.
They have called the Treasure Valley home for nearly 40 years, enjoying everything great about Idaho,
from mountain biking in the Owyhee Mountains to hiking and camping in the Sawtooths. They’re self-
confessed foodies and indulge in local cuisine at every opportunity.
Dom and Tara currently live in Nampa on a couple of acres with lots of flowers, 25 chickens and a
rooster named Guapo.
