I would not hesitate to recommend him for your next real estate transaction
Terel was recommended to me by a friend who had also worked with him in the purchase of her home. He was immediately responsive and available, and he saw me through the entire buying process, from picking neighborhoods to signing the papers. I hadn’t been through it in a very long time, so his insight and support throughout the process was invaluable. What was much more impressive, however, and for which I am forever grateful, was his service after the sale was closed. From the day I moved into the house, I had various problems and issues with the home which were not disclosed to me (or identified in the inspection reports). Some of the matters unfortunately required months to resolve. As a busy professional, I didn’t have time to manage the process. In my stead, Terel not only helped liaise with the seller and her agent over the issues, but he also assisted with lining up contractors and trades people, meeting them at the property on my behalf, and collecting reimbursement from the seller. Terel had no real responsibility to do this; he went well above and beyond what any normal agent might have done in my situation. It’s because of this that I regularly recommend him to friends and colleagues.” —Dana Read “Having spent a few weeks meeting with numerous real estate agents in their offices, I selected Terel as my realtor to help me purchase my first house. I could not have made a better decision. Terel has a very high level of professionalism, was great to work with, and was very patient while I took over half a year to find a property that met my fairly narrow criteria. After months of searching we both had very good knowledge of what kind of house I was looking for and the particular pocket neighborhoods where I wanted to purchase. One day, he called me up about a potential property right after it came on the market. We went to see the property within hours, and had an offer submitted the next day. During the contingency timeframes, we discovered some issues with the remodel permits and foundation, which were initially incredibly disappointing to discover. However, Terel was reassuring and wrote up a powerful letter going into great detail regarding the issues we had discovered and mandating a significant (approximately 6%) discount on the purchase price. We then presented this as a take-it-or-leave it amendment to the bank selling the property. Terel’s excellent judgment and research paid off—we successfully achieved a reduction in price that by far outstripped any possible costs associated with rectifying the issues discovered. I was and remain extremely pleased with Terel, and I would not hesitate to recommend him for your next real estate transaction.

Terel was direct and honest with his own perspective, and yet very attuned to our emotions and needs. This kind of expertise, EQ, and transparency is what’s most important to me and my husband, and is always how I assess who I want to work with.
