Terri Buseman, GRI, E-Pro

A resident of Chicago’s South Loop neighborhood since 1985, Terri Buseman’s local knowledge of the area is extensive. She understands the ins and outs of the Chicago local real estate market, having experienced it during times of economic boom, decline and stability — and knows how to act accordingly.

Terri and her husband raised three children and their beloved golden doodle Freddie in the South Loop, so she stays current with local market trends and pricing activity, and offers insight into schools, shopping and services, restaurants and transportation. Terri understands how much of a factor a good school is in deciding on a client’s next home and is able to offer insight to parents looking for schools for their children.

One of the best Chicago Real estate agents

“Real estate isn’t really about houses. It’s about people.”

Terri’s innate ability to understand a client’s real estate needs come from 17+ years of experience dealing with all phases of a client’s life — whether it’s buying a first condo or home, moving to a new place after starting a family, or downsizing when becoming an “empty nester.” She has a keen understanding of the personal nature of buying or selling a home, and works tirelessly for her clients to ensure the process is a pleasant one.

“Terri helped my husband and I buy our first home. We chose her because she lived in the neighborhood that we were interested in. She was always responsive to our questions about the process and showed us many properties before we found the right one. We would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home. As first-time home buyers, she made the whole process very easy for us.”

- J.M.

In her first career as a Delta Airlines flight attendant, Terri became an expert at anticipating a client’s needs, while being patient and maintaining a sense of humor. “I had to be able to think on my feet, use good judgement, and be cool under pressure,” Terri says. “I became unflappable, and that has helped me immensely in my career as a realtor.”

One thing that sets Terri apart is her approachability. She thrives on being a trusted resource for her clients, offering objective guidance and sound advice, helping reduce any stress or anxiety clients may be feeling when buying or selling a home. There are many interactions with realtors, inspectors, attorneys and bankers, and Terri’s focus is the glue that keeps it all together to ensure a successful transaction. Her negotiating skills, ability to effectively communicate, and calm persistence throughout the whole process puts clients at ease.

Terri’s confidence attracts clients time and time again, helping prospective buyers or sellers feel comfortable. “I’m very sincere in wanting to help my clients,” Terri says. “I want them to believe that their experience was good; that I helped them through this process and guided them in a gentle but firm way,” she says. “I do this by using good negotiating skills, communication style, humor, and being respectful of their situation.”

It is an honor for Terri when a client gives her the privilege to buy or sell their next home, and will do everything possible to live up to their expectations. Terri’s ultimate goal is to closely partner with her clients, so they feel they have been supported in making the best decision for this important life event.

“Terri was very knowledgeable about the market in which I was selling my condominium. She was extremely responsive to my requests for information and helpful with tips about how to improve its marketability for online viewers. She continued to provide all of the information needed to get to a successful closing. I would certainly encourage anyone who is looking to buy or sell properties in the south Chicago downtown area to use her services.”
