Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.15M in Meydenbauer, Bellevue, WA.
Great person and team to work with. Very trustworthy, timely in responses and knows the area very well. I would highly recommend. Did not rush us into a house that was not right for us. We would use Tere again. Tere and team were willing to put in the extra ti.me to find the right house. They also had contacts for builders/contractors so we could get an idea of the renovation costs ahead of deciding.
Being our first home purchase, we had little-to-no idea what we were doing. Tere held our hands through the entire process, from locating a house and understanding what red-flags we should be looking for, to scouting the neighborhood (Tere actually personally walked the streets and talked to neighbors to find out the nitty-gritty about the immediate micro-neighborhood), to helping us write a competitive offer to win us our house. Every member of her team was extremely diligent and helpful as well, responding to all our questions and concerns. I would recommend Tere to anyone who asked for a recommendation.
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.625M in Downtown, Bellevue, WA.
We hired Tere and Team Foster to sell our house. Tere brought us market comps and a marketing strategy that allowed us to set an assertive but supportable price. She and her team are extremely process oriented, organized and efficient. They staged the house, provided an organizer, took photos and met our goal for a listing date within our aggressive timeframe. As we still lived in the house, Tere was very accommodating on showings, giving us ample notice and working with our schedule. During the offer process, she gave us good advice and was always available. We put the house under contract within 11 days of listing and closed soon thereafter. Tere exceeded all of our expectations. We referred her to two of our friends whose houses she also sold.
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $775K in Hunts Point, WA.
The bottom line: we had bought house represented by Tere and we sold our house several years later with Tere as our listing agent. There is truly hardly anyone matching her expertise in this particular peculiar market of Hunts Point, Clyde Hill and Medina.
Tere not only came to our initial meeting fully prepared with comps, samples, references and market tidbits. She had also brought confidence. Our house sold in several weeks with day one generating three offers. Each open house was followed with Tere's reflections on brokers' and potential buyers' feedback. She stayed on the sale through the Super Bowl generating our final response to the final buyer.
Tere has our gratitude for her responsiveness, patience with us and her unquestioned expertise and finesse.

Terry Foster and her team did an excellent job facilitating the sale of my home. In addition to being knowledgeable about the market and how to best prepare my home and list it, Terry Foster and team did everything imaginable to make what could've been a very hectic process streamlined and low stress. The next time I am in the market to buy or sell there is no question who I will turn to. I cannot imagine anyone doing a better job than Team F a oster.
My wife and I can't thank Tere and team enough for helping us get our home sold quickly and efficiently! They did an amazing job from start to finish with the staging, constant communication, negotiation on our behalf, pricing of our home, etc. We always felt like we had the best opportunity to get maximum value for our home given the market conditions. We wouldn't hesitate to user Tere again and highly recommend her and the team to anyone looking to buy or sell in the market.
Everything was awesome and again we can't thank them enough!

I recently bought and sold a house with Tere Foster and Team Foster. As a family that moves about every 4 years and having worked with many real estate groups over the past 20 years and I can say with confidence - Tere Foster is simply the best! Tere and Team treated every aspect of the selling and buying process from beginning to end with the same level of enthusiasm and professionalism. Every call, question, and email was met with an immediate response and action. If you a considering buying or selling a home I can recommend Tere Foster and Team Foster without reservation.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $525K in Eastgate, Bellevue, WA.
Tere Foster's team was extremely professional and reliable. The entire team worked together with me to make this process both quick and painless. With the great help of this group, I was able to buy first home within within 1 month of my initial search. They kept me very informed throughout the process and answered all of my questions and now I have the house of my dreams! I would absolutely recommend Tere Foster to any of my friends/family/coworkers who are looking to buy/sell a house.

We reviewed information from several agents an brokers, and interviewed a select few. Tere Foster and her team is who we selected. She is excellent at seeing the value in your house and setting the price accordingly. The advertisement placement and marketing materials were very well done. And, she has an outstanding team supporting her and answering all your questions.
However, the main reason we picked Tere and Team Foster for our sale is that she is an excellent negotiator.
Tere is a true professional that guided us through every step in the purchase of our home. She has tremendous knowledge of the market and skillfully represented us on every issue that came up. We would highly recommend her and her team.
