Excellent Advocate for A New Home Buyer
The first-time home buying process is daunting, but Terri made it as simple as possible for me and my wife. She walked us through every step and thoroughly explained what was happening and why. Terri also served as our biggest advocate and always had our best interests on the forefront of her mind. She was honest and frank when we visited listings, letting us know whether she considered if what we saw was worth our time or might be more trouble than its worth. Terri is incredibly professional and is always available - even working to help us finish our deal while she was on vacation with her family. She'll be the first person we call whenever we decide to sell our house and we couldn't recommend her services enough.
