Ratings & Reviews

I have completed two transactions with Tere. First I needed land and a home with a 4-car garage. Not only did she find what I was looking for at an incredible price, Tere even negotiated the price down another $13,000 for a credit at the close of escrow. Then once I found my Dream Ranch Tere sold my current tract home for over what I had paid in 2007 at the top of the market. I have been upside down in my home's value, for the last 7 years. I was very pleased when Tere brought me an offer over my purchase price! We had a smooth flawless closing on both transactions simultaneously. I can't say enough good things about Tere Rice and her knowledge, ethics, honesty, integrity and her negotiating skills. I was very impressed with Tere Rice and will recommend her to all my friends and family.

Sold a home in 2013 in Heritage Mobile Home Park, Temecula, CA 92591.

I used Tere in two different real estate transactions; one involving a purchase and one involving a sale. Not only she helped me during the transactions but also continued to assist me even after the closings to make sure that I was satisfied with any post-closing matters. Tere does not abandon her clients once she receives her commission. I highly recommend her.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $300K in Temecula, CA.

I first called Tere looking for a referral for an inspector, as I was in the middle of refinancing my house, knowing I might need to sell in the future. Well, you know how it goes- wonderful people tend to stick together, and I made the right call.

When it came time to sell, Tere knew her stuff. I was incredulous at the price she predicted and the time in which she wanted to put it on the market. I thought she was being overly optimistic. After all, I had just refinanced. I had seen what my appraisal came in at!

Not only was Tere being realistic in her predictions, the sale exceeded both our expectations... with no sign, no lock-box, no early morning door-knocking or people looking through our windows.

Tere was not afraid to go the extra mile to bring the right buyer in. She had a list of things she was sure would get the right folks in. She comes to every open house armed to the teeth with little tips, tricks and props. She knows the area, knows her market, and knows other local agents and what they like.

I believe Tere will work just as hard for you as she did for us.

Thank you for allowing me to help you stage and ready your home so we could get Top Dollar! I love my military family's. Helping them sell or buy is always something that brings me joy. To know I am helping those that have sacrificed for our Freedoms, ..... Priceless!

Showed home in 2012 in Temecula, CA.

Tere's level of local knowledge is amazing. She knows every nook of the Temecula Valley. We were trying to understand the many different areas of the valley. As we found areas that we liked (and those that didn't fit us) Tere had to make a series of 'on the fly' changes to the list of homes we would be viewing. She was always unflappable. I would recommend Tere to anyone coming to Temecula.

Dean you always challenge me to go over and beyond, what I think is possible! This Short Sale had a few more twist and turns but perseverance paid off. A little love and this place will be a great investment with a great purchase 20% under market value Hoot Hoot!

Sold a home in 2012 in Eden Hot Springs, Moreno Valley, CA 92555.

Tere was a pleasure to work with during the sale of my home. She was very responsive to our needs and guided us through every step of the process. I was very appreciative to the fact that Tere would take/respond to calls during odd hours and without complaint or hesitation. If we would have stayed in California I definitely would have worked with Tere to find another home. Thanks for all your hard work Tere, we greatly appreciate it!!!

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $425K in Temecula, CA.

I had decided to move to the Temecula area after doing a lot of research on my own. At that point I needed a solid real estate agent who would best represent me as a buyer. I picked Tere from zillow reviews as well as reading about her on several other sites. Tere got back to me immediately and I would say responsiveness is her number one quality. Her knowledge of the area was extensive which helped immensely especially being from out of state. From initially looking at homes that fit my criteria through the closing process of a home that fits me perfectly, Tere's expertise provided a smooth, successful buying experience and I highly recommend her.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $325K in Murrieta, CA.

Buying our home from another state was the very best experience that I could have every had. I owe this to Tere Rice! We began our home buying process with no knowledge of what to expect. We were first time home buyers and were living in Texas at the time. Tere was able to recommend an excellent lender, gave us quite a few choices for Home Inspectors etc. I can honestly say the worst part of our experience was waiting to move in because my husband's orders were not yet finalized! From our initial email to Tere asking if she was accepting new clients, our 2 trips to California to decide on an area to live and ultimately a house, to the hundreds of homes that Tere sent for us to review, to the final close, she was amazing! It wasn't until 2 weeks after our close that we were able to come and actually move in due to military obligations. When we arrived, Tere had not only turned on our lights and heater for our 11pm arrival, she had provided snacks, drinks and a small Christmas Tree! She is a wonderful person and I highly recommend you use her services!

Bought a home in 2011 in Oakridge Ranches, Aguanga, CA 92592.

In my case, the five star ratings given are in no way exaggerations. I had my eye on a property that Tere recommended early on in the search process. Without overstating it, I can truly say with certainty that I would not be living in the property without Tere’s knowledge, patience and persistence. She’s confident, competent, and works hard at her trade. Briefly stated, she’s a real pro.

John this was an incredible journey for you. We started a Short Sale that turned out to be just a stall for the seller to stay for Free then turned in to a Trust Deed Sale. I tracked down the buyer, an investor who bought the house to flip, and we got it under contract, before it even went on the MLS!!! Welcome John!
