Sold a Single Family home in 2012 in Fairfield, CA.

After living in my home for 2 years and going through a divorce I realized I could not afford to pay my mortgage. So I called Tess Downey (who had helped me purchase my home in 2010). She advised me on what steps to take in order to sell my house. I did not want to lose my home to foreclosure and ruin my credit for years! Tess put my home on the market and 6 months later… my home was sold! We avoided foreclosure and my credit was only going to be affected for a couple of years. Tess worked diligently to sell my house and always kept me informed as to what was happening. She was always easy to contact, either by text, email or phone. I would definitely use her services again and recommend her to anyone in the market to sell or buy a home!

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $275K in Fairfield, CA.

I would definitely recommend the services of Tess Downey to anyone in the market to sell or buy a home. I was not referred to her. I simply saw one of her listings and gave her a call out of the blue. She took the time to help me, answered my questions and gave me so much information in that initial call. I got a very good vibe from her so I decided to ask her to be my agent and help me look for my first home! We worked very well together. She was easy to reach, either by phone or email and always returned my calls and emails. Based on all the horror stories I was hearing at the time, I thought I would be looking for my new home for several months. With Tess’ help, I was able to find a home and close escrow in a matter of 3 months. AND I made the deadline for the Obama credit! My husband and I were super happy with our new home and had Tess Downey to thank for all her hard work. * Note -- I bought my home in 06/2010.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $400K in Benicia, CA.

We were looking for a Realtor who could be persistent, persuasive, and even aggressive in helping us find and close on a short sale property. We were on the low end of the market and we figured we'd be looking at short sales/foreclosures -- and we wanted someone who would really work for us. We needed someone who was on-the-ball and would keep us informed and keep the deal on track -- this is why we chose Tess. Tess is quite good at negotiations and whether you're selling a home or looking to buy one, Tess will have your back. Not only that, she helped us find a place that was really perfect for us. We had an unusual request, while many folks look for nice kitchens with granite counters and stainless steel applicances, we were looking for a room that could be used as a library. Tess found us a fantastic home with a great rumpus room to house our many books and a great big yard for my English flower garden. We were very happy with Tess and we would recommend her. She is especially knowledgeable about Green Valley and Cordelia, but was very helpful in Benicia too.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $200K in Suisun City, CA.

When you want to sell a house or do a short sale I give Tess my highest recomendation. Not only does she know the short sale laws, but she knows how to use them. When the note holder gets difficult Tess is a WARRIOR and she will fight for you. Thanks to Tess I avoided foreclosure and was able to sell my house. Dean Bowlus

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $175K in Vallejo, CA.

Tess has been the complete professional and very understanding of the issues I had to deal with in selling my deceased mothers home. She stayed in touch on a regular basis and always anticipated problems before they could surprise you at the worst possible time.. Overall I give her five stars.

Bought a home in 2012.

Tess was a great buyers agent. She was very attentive to our needs and was willing to help us search for homes on the days that best worked for our schedule. She stood behind us and answered our many questions.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $125K in Fairfield, CA.

It’s hard to find the words to express how wonderful Tess Downey is – both as a real estate agent and as a person. She is absolutely AMAZING. First and foremost, Tess is PASSIONATE about what she does, and that passion shows in every aspect of what she does. You can tell it’s more that a job for her, it’s something she loves to do. Her EXPERTISE is amazing, especially in a market that appears to be ever changing. Tess truly CARES about people and it shows when talking to her. She will fight for her clients if the face of injustice. She knows exactly what need to be done if an obstacle arises and will not rest until it is resolved. Tess is HONEST and TRUSTWORTHY. She made the process of selling our home so painless that we were amazed when it was all said and done. There is no real estate agent I would recommend more than Tess Downey. She truly is THE BEST there is!

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $200K in Suisun City, CA.

Tess helped us do a short sale on our house. We listed it with Tess at the end of December, and we had several offers within a week. Because Tess knew how to work with the bank, we closed in the middle of February. An amazingly short amount of time for a short sale! Also, we enjoyed getting to know Tess. She is smart, funny, and tough when needed! I have already recommended her to a couple of people.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $200K in Vacaville, CA.

We bought a house out of the area in November of 2011. Spent a couple of months cleaning up our old house in Vacaville getting it ready for sale. We were worried that our house would be on the market for months, and that we would have to reduce our price in order to sell it. With Tess we had several excellent offers within two weeks. The process was very quick and smooth, and couldn't have gone better. I highly recommend Tess Downey.
