Former Realtor Endorsement – “Terri will work for you until the job is done!”

While I will add to the good reviews for Terri, I can give a review from a different perspective – that of a former realtor (17 years in the biz). We needed a realtor to sell our Chicago condo long distance. Accordingly, we interviewed several South Loop realtors during a trip back to Chicago, including Terri, who had the most professional, impressive presentation with lots of comparables to determine price and a comprehensive marketing plan. We made the right choice. Even long distance she kept us up to speed with paperwork and feedback. When our first contract fell through, she worked even harder to get our condo sold and was successful! I wholeheartedly endorse Terri as a solid, hard-working realtor who will work for you until the job is done

“Love our First Home, Great Listener”

Terri is an excellent agent, being both patient and aggressive in helping us to find our first home over the course of 9 months. She worked with the time frame we had and listened to what we liked. It was a great experience to have her expertise and advice for questions big and small.

“Personalized Marketing & Expert Local Realtor”

Terri lives in the South Loop and is very familiar with the perks of such a “small neighborhood in a big city”. She touted the unique characteristics of our home and brought awareness to the sale by using public media and printed brochures.  She began by explaining to us the process and fees, local   comps and market trends.  She advised us on how to stage our home to its best advantage. Terri had a beautiful virtual reality tour made of our interior and property, posted online for all to see.  Terri is smart and has a great sense of humor, has a wonderful relaxed manner that translates to easy communication throughout the process…

“Amazing, Inspirational Person Who Cares”

Terri is just an amazing person. She’s inquisitive, she’s knowledgeable, she’s professional and she still manages to be personable! I’m a better person to have spent the last couple years watching, learning, interacting and communicating with her. I am also inspired by her. She has probably taught me one of the most valuable lessons in my lifetime through her business ideals and practices. I’ll consider Terri a friend-for-life.

“Terri is the Best – Hands down! – Love our Home”

Terri’s the best. She was recommended to us by a work colleague who had nothing but great things to say about her. We were first time home buyers and pretty nervous about the process, but Terri was extremely patient with us. She was great at explaining the process and really walking us through each step. She always came to showings with an extremely positive attitude (no matter how many places we had seen!) and would tell us, “Take your time,” and “Don’t put in an offer on anything you don’t love and truly see yourself in!” She also has great connections, and recommended fantastic folks to get us through the inspection, legal process, and closing. She found us our new home (it is absolutely stunning, in our dream neighborhood, and actually in our price range!) and we could not be happier with it. We will definitely be using Terri again in the future!

“Goes Beyond the Call of Duty”

I am so happy that I chose Terri as my agent to look for an tenant for my property in Chicago last year. She quickly helped me find candidates and screened them and find the right one for me. Besides, she helped me with going to my condo and waiting for Sears people to install the washer and dryers TWICE because I was out of town. I offered the cash for the help Terri provided but she refused it nicely. I would definitely recommend Terri!

“Always Accessible, created a smooth experience”

With Terri you feel like you not only have a sensational real estate person but after a few minutes you realize you have a close friend who was never more than two rings away, no question was left unanswered, her advice was spot on and the trust factor at a time that can be so stressful was off the   charts. Without question her talent, experience and advice made our selling and moving process so smooth I would never hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for a similar experience. Those five stars are certainly not enough to describe her many talents.

“Incredibly Patient, Attentive, and Caring”

Terri got me the townhome that I just moved into. I cannot recommend her enough. She was incredibly patient, very timely, stuck with me through my numerous flip flops and never pushed me for anything. She spent a long time trying understand what exactly I was looking for and then she produced the results. She patiently worked with me for over a year. I would definitely work with her again (and again).

“Fair, Friendly, and Gets Results”

After deciding to rent my condo I was originally planning to go about managing the rental process myself. With time challenges and little knowledge of the ins-and-outs I relented. Having known Terri from a local community club and being aware of her experience in the real estate market, I asked if her group could help. We began to talk rental ranges, steps and inked an agreement. The photographer she hired did a great job and, come to find out, was shortly after featured in a Crain’s best of Chicago offices photo shoot. With all the showings and communications with potential renters she handled I would have never been able to have the place rented the day after I moved without her help and some luck. It was obvious Terri felt a strong desire to be fair and friendly in her dealings with me and the potential renters. She helped put me in reasonable rental range and kept things in perspective when challenges arose. Her job is to help close so I’m glad to have pushed on the monthly rate.

“Success Selling our home During Downtown – Very Trustworthy and Smart”

In a slow market (where too many condos are for sale), with a little patience and a great realtor, we were able to sell our place for the price we wanted! Starting with our initial meeting, Terri offered insight on what buyers look for and recommendations to prepping the home without making big investments. Between her website, emails, brochures (with fantastic photos!) and open houses, we felt our property was publicized and got attention. Terri worked hard to accommodate interested parties with showings, while being sensitive to our family and work schedules. She kept up-to-date with market trends and home sales and shared that knowledge consistently. Having someone trustworthy to handle all of the paper-work for a closing was a load off our shoulders. And when we needed to find a quick rental, we turned to Terri – and the task was completed within a very short time frame. Terri is always upbeat; she is hard working; she is persistent, without being pushy. We were very fortunate and happy to have Terri as our realtor and highly recommend her.

Terri was very knowledgeable about the market in which I was selling my condominium (Multi-family Home).  She was extremely responsive to my requests for information and very helpful with tips about how to improve its marketability for the on-line viewer.  She was very helpful with the on-line tools as the closing   process progressed and continued to provide all of the information 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.

“Terri is Ultimate real estate professional – Very Happy with our Home Sale”

My wife and I recently listed our townhouse in the South Loop and engaged Terri Buseman as our realtor for the sale. Terri helped us determine a list price and advised us anytime she felt it would be best to lower it. Even though we had it listed in the Fall and Winter, she had a few open houses for us. Over the period of our listing agreement, the townhouse was shown over fifty times, either by Terri and her team. We always received feedback after a showing, with suggestions when they were needed. The townhome sold in February and closed in late March. Her input to the appraiser was critical, and the sale was both smooth and very profitable. Terri is the ultimate real estate professional, and I would recommend her services to anyone, especially in the South Loop.
