When you are spending the type of money that a house costs in the Bay Area, you simply have to rely on someone else, so trust is the key component. I trusted Terel, and he delivered. If you want an effective man of integrity, Terel Beppu is the agent for you.

Terel was recommended to me by a close friend as I joined the market looking to buy my first house. We arranged a meeting, and I made it clear that I was looking for a rather intensive search and that I’d ask a lot of questions. He was able to reassure me that he was the man for the job and boy was he ever. The consummate professional, Terel was able to aggressively steer me in the right direction and provided constant feedback on the houses I was looking at. I didn’t know the system, he did. I didn’t know appropriate bid amounts, he did. I didn’t know what details to look for, he did. I didn’t understand the tax implications, he did. I didn’t know how to comp a house’s value, he did. I didn’t know how to handle a poor listing agent, he did. I had questions nearly every day of our search, and Terel had answers for me. He utilized other trusted agents and coordinators to provide quicker service and information than other home buyers could get from their agents. Terel never failed to advise me against a house if he felt it wasn’t what I was looking for or the price was wrong. These advantages led me to the right house and the right price in a market where houses were flying off the market at $100,000 over asking. Half a year after my purchase, I’m thrilled with the experience and my home.

Since my purchase, I have actively promoted Terel’s services to a number of friends looking to buy homes. I told them that if you want an effective man of integrity, Terel Beppu is the agent for you. When you are spending the type of money that a house costs in the Bay Area, and you aren’t a pro yourself, you simply have to rely on someone else, and trust is the key component. I trusted Terel, and he delivered as an agent and friend.
