I wish I could have used her for all of my recent transactions but they were just to far from her. I was so spoiled that the other realtors can’t compare. You will not be disappointed with which ever side your are on in the process Teresa is such a great person to work with.

Kathleen Christiansen, Seller, 29 Lake

Because of her expertise we got so much more than our asking price. It was more that we could have imagined. Even if we had gotten our asking price we would have been thrilled with her professionalism organization and humor through out the process.

I used Teresa to help sell my Mother’s home. She had to work with my sister and myself as we were co trustees. She kept both of us informed at all times she appreciated that we were on a limited budget to get the house ready for sale and worked her magic.

I recently used three different realtors for three different areas so I have got a great prospective of what a good realtor is. Teresa is AMAZING!!!

For many years, Teresa has been a very loyal and savvy partner. She has referred me to her clients when she recognizes that my design expertise would be an asset  to their projects.  In some cases, we have collaborated before an actual sale so that she can approach a potential buyer with future renovation ideas.

When it came time to sell my own home with its many unique details her knowledge and expertise were excellent and she showcased it superbly.

As a contractor working with Teresa is an easy process – she understands what a house needs from structural to electrical work to painting to be market ready. She is thorough yet decisive and time is not lost on her end while getting a home ready to list.

I would highly recommend her to any buyer or seller looking for representation in the competitive environment we are presently in. She understands what it takes to sell a house for its maximum potential.

Suzanne Redfield, Seller, 271 Crocker

We so appreciate your enthusiasm, detailed organization  and real estate knowledge in getting the house sold!  Selling a home can be a stressful time, made even more so doing it from distances and dealing with two parties, but you made the process run smoothly, efficiently and to say the least effectively!

Pam Blee, Seller, 29 Lake Ave

Teresa was extremely honest, both as my agent and a liaison. Her integrity, insights, conviction, commitment, savvy and honesty should be the kind of benchmark that anyone looking for an agent should employ when evaluating and considering their choices.

We were challenging out of state relocation buyers with expensive taste and a low budget for the area, combined with financing restrictions and home that was bank owned with multiple offers and hard to reach sellers.  She has renovated several  properties of her own and knows the importance of making a sound investment decision and understanding the structural integrity of the house, in

After looking at about 30 open houses in Oakland after relocating from Texas, we met Teresa at a listing and instantly knew this was the Realtor we wanted to work with.  She’s a combination of professional and knowledgeable, mixed with aggressive and ambitious, mixed with flexible and patient, and downright hilarious to be around at times.

Working with sellers whose beautifully updated and maintained home was ready for listing made my job easy. With knowledgable and communicative sellers I understood their needs and was able to represent them well and allow the transaction to be handled swiftly and efficiently.
