Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $550K in Crescenta Highlands, La Crescenta, CA.
Teri sold our La Crescenta home in August 2012. She definitely made us feel like #1 VIP's. When she met with us she asked many questions on how we would like things to go. She suggested what she thought would work best and we followed her advise. She knows her stuff, has done her research, and knows what will work best in any situation. She priced our house correctly, planned walk through's and open the house perfectly, and kept us in the loop all the way through the process. The journey was amazing and she kept things positive! Our house sold in 3 days and escrow closed shortly after. She is very focused and always keeps the clients' interests clearly communicated with straight forward leadership. My only regret is that the process is over - and we don't have another transaction (currently) with Teri.

Teri was extremely skillful in every aspect of the process of buying my home. Her dedication carried us through what turned out to be a very, very difficult closing. She was able to disarm anger and nerves with her calm approach. Her professionalism and friendliness makes agents want to do business with her over other buyer's agents, which is a tremendous advantage.
Since I was so satisfied with Teri's help buying my home in 2012, I engaged her to sell my rental home. She was thorough and very professional from start to finish and was able to get what I believe was top dollar.

Teri is a great agent. She knows where to look, how much to bid, and what needs to be done to close escrow. She is a great resource through the entire process, very professional and insightful. We gave her our wish list for a house and cities we wanted to live in. She took everything into account and helped us narrow our search to La Crescenta. She was always available to talk and worked with our schedule to show us houses.
She worked with us on our budget and showed a wide-range of houses, noting what we liked and what we didn't like. She was knowledge with the houses in the area. Sometimes we'd ask to see particular houses and she provided her experience with the house but still took to see the house. Everything she said about the house was true and when she said, "You're not gonna like it," she was right. She also kept our expectations in check because the locations were highly desirable. Once we found our house, Teri provided her experience and insight so that we would have a strong bid.
Teri's strengths really showed once our bid was accepted. She helped us through the closing process. She made sure that the that we were always on schedule with the projected closing date. If things weren't moving along, she would contact the seller's agent to ensure that we would close on the projected date. She ensured that our interests were protected throughout the process. She also made sure that the seller fulfilled all of their outstanding obligations prior to closing.
When we requested concessions from the seller, Teri recommended which concessions we should fight for and which we should let go because it is unlikely to succeed. Her insight through out the entire process was invaluable.
Lastly, once we closed escrow and the house was our, she checked up on us to make sure that the move-in process worked smoothly and recommended contractors to assist us in making the house into our home.
Helped me rent a Single Family home in La Canada, CA.
My husband and I, both physicians, met Teri in 2009, when we needed to move from CT to CA. While lining up appointments to see rental properties during a 2.5 day trip, she was the only agent to spend more than 5 minutes on the phone with me. Having such a small window of time to find a place was stressful enough. Having to do it with a 5 week old and 13 month old in tow was causing me to have a near-breakdown.
Between the time we spoke to the time we met her, she had compiled a list of other properties for us to look at. She was great at helping us decide what our actual needs and wants since we were only looking for a rental. She also really knew the area, which was crucial to us because of my husband's call requirements and distance. After looking at 14 houses, and settling on one, she successfully negotiated a lower rent. She truly worked for our best interest. She didn't even mention that the house we chose was on the same street where she lived.
Two years after moving to California, we were ready to purchase a house, but not in the area where we were living. I asked Teri to represent us, but she, again, very honestly told me she was not familiar with that area, but found us a realtor within her company. This turned out to be a very wise move, because of water rights in that area. It could have been quite a costly mistake, but fortunately, because Teri was not looking only to make a commission, we we saved thousands of dollars.
Needless, to say, before we made an offer, I asked Teri to accompany us to give her opinion on the property. Our realtor did not know us as well, and although she tried to remain neutral, it was apparent, this wasn't what she would have picked. Therefore, Teri was there and helped me feel good about the direction we were heading. The minute she saw the house and property she said "This is your house." It is old. It is historic. It needs restoration. But it sits on nearly 2 acres of orchard, surrounded by a wall of river rock. It has been a year since closing, and we have no regrets.
Do not hesitate to call Teri. I highly recommend her. You will not be disappointed. She provides input and advice without pre-judgement. She's very patient. However, if she feels that you may be making a mistake, she will make sure you fully consider the options.
She was a great support during and after our move and is now a very, good friend.
She is excellent, kindness, and nice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
She found my first sweet home for me and my family love to say "Thank You"
Until i got the key my new home, she quickly responsed everything that i requested.
I was very happy to work with her.
Teri Lazarowitz is amazing! I highly recommend her due to her professionalism, solid experience and good knowledge in real state as well as her friendly personality and sensitivity to clients' needs.

Whether you are buying or selling, Teri will make your journey easy and she is always available to answer any questions. She trully goes out of her way for her clients.
Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $525K in Glenoake Canyon, Glendale, CA.
My husband and I love our new home, and we it owe it all to Teri. We were not your typical buyers -- our financial situation negatively changed during our home buying process --our condo sold for much less than we had anticipated amongst other things. Rather than encouraging us to look in less expensive areas that were not where we wanted to live, Teri remained positive and knew that our house would be there in our desired area when we were ready. She is professional, knowledgeable and so extremely personable! When our house came on the market and seemed somewhat within reach, she quickly reached out to listing agent and they instantly formed a connection -- this is sooo important!! The listing agent was really pulling for us because of Teri -- this is ultimately how we got our house at the price we wanted. The ability of your agent to work well with others can make all the difference in the world.
Too many agents these days are often stuck-up and self-centered. You want some to always work in your best interests, never pressure you to make a deal when your heart isn't it, and when you are in escrow, you need someone to stick by you through every step of what can be a roller coaster ride. Teri is one of most down-to-earth agents you will meet, yet she is strong and smart enough to get the deal that her clients deserve.
Truly a friend throughout the homebuying process and beyond -- we would wholeheartedly recommend her to either a buyer or seller. If you want outstanding service, trust Teri for all your real estate needs. We know and have met hundreds of agents throughout the years, and Teri is second to none!
Teri was the listing agent for my elderly aunt and uncle's home in La Canada-Flintridge. She went above and beyond to try make them comfortable with the listing process, open houses, the paperwork, etc. Moving from her home of 37 years was traumatic for my aunt and Teri couldn't have been sweeter or more patient as the concerns and worries tumbled out day after day. Teri is attentive to detail, knowledgable, calm and kind. I would recommend her to anyone.
Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $550K in La Crescenta, CA.
I initially met Teri in 2007 when she properly handled the sale of my property. This year of 2011, I called Teri so she could handle the purchase of 2 properties I was interested in. I decided to retain Teri for these 2 purchases based on her professionalism and expertise and incredible service.
Every step of the way Teri was there to protect my interests and ensure that all items related to the sale or purchase of properties I have been involved with went smoothly. She dots every "I" and crosses every "T". I can confidently recommend her being my experience with other agents have not come close to matching Teri's work ethic and diligence.
I have nothing but respect for Teri and this comes after several transactions she has handled for me.
