Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.025M in Almaden Valley, San Jose, CA.

My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Therese based upon a letter she sent out on behalf of another buyer she had. We were not even really looking to sell our house right away, nor were we ready. However, with Therese and her wonderful staff we were ready and had our 1 and only open house within 60 days! It only took one showing and we received over asking and had a wonderful family who loves our home move in! I would highly recommend Therese, she is truly amazing and wonderfully supportive to work with!  More Less

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $925K in Almaden Valley, San Jose, CA.

A friend of mine referred Therese to me. It took me about three months to find a house that we, I and my wife and two-year old son, love. We saw probably more than 70+ houses. Here are the qualities that Therese has that I really liked about her.

1- She is not trying to bias your opinion as this is very important. you need to love your house the way you want. 2- She let's you know if a house has a problem. For instance there was a house that we liked, she told us that because of the power line, this house might sit in the bad market for long. I really appreciate her comment as you feel she is on your side and does not want quick money and go. 3-She never turned me down to visit more houses. Any day, any time either she or one her assistants helped us. Sometimes, I asked her to go and see a house and let me know her opinion. 4- The offer prices that she made, was right. not too high, not too low. I did not feel bad if I missed a few offers, because I did not want to go way over price. 5- Her two assistants Pam and Tina are really helpful and kind and they care about you. 6- Never ever, they pushed me to get a house. You know after showing many houses, you could lose it and ask what is wrong with this or that. But they were all helpful and tried to understand your point of view and consider it. 7- She knows other agents very well and this helps you a lot, as buying a house in Bay Area is not only about money. 8-Therese helped me to find my home that we really love it. Normally people think that agent fee is a lot of money. From my experience with Therese, I say she earned it if not deserve more.

I strongly recommend her and yes would work with her in future.
