Theresa is a very professional realtor as well as a caring individual. In my search for a new home I had contact with many realtors, she was heads above all of them. She follows through quickly and thoroughly. I am very fortunate she was able to help me buy my new home

Theresa is an experienced real estate professional with an outgoing personality. She pleasantly offered insightful guidance, sharing her knowledge without being pushy. Theresa provided objective critiques of homes including potential improvement costs, monitored the market and kept us informed of changes in our targeted area, and she listened to us becoming aware of our preferences. Hard-working and energetic we saw 13 homes in one day, moving fast and staying focused. She patiently showed us many homes so we could become knowledgeable of the market and more aware of our wants and needs.

We move frequently due to my Fiancé's occupation and I wish we could bring Theresa out of state! I am confident when I say, she is that good! We have used Theresa for three moves in Arizona. She makes the entire process run smoothly from finding the perfect home to settling all in. She goes above and beyond the expectations! Thank you for all your help throughout the years, Theresa! You are appreciated!

Theresa is great at what she does! She was able to recognize what was important to us when looking for a home and also point out other important factors. She acts quick and wastes no time. We have no doubt that Theresa does all she can when getting what we want. She is very knowledgeable and it has been great to have her on our side!

Theresa was amazing! She sent us emails of prospective houses in the area we were searching weekly. She was extremely knowledgable and a great negotiator. She is professional, smart, and has a great work ethic. If we buy again, she's our realtor for life. We would recommend her to anyone. Thanks Theresa!

Theresa is a top notch agent and one that I highly recommend to others. We moved to Arizona from the midwest, which is a very daunting task, and Theresa was there for us every step of the way. When we flew in to Phoenix with the intent of finding a home to rent, we had only 2 full days in which to accomplish the task. Not only did Theresa help us to find a place on day 1, but she also helped us to secure it the very next day so that we had the peace of mind of knowing we had a home to move into upon our final move to our new home state. Everything Theresa did served to help our cross-country move go as smoothly as possible and I will forever be grateful that we met her. She is a dedicated, knowledgable, committed and true professional and an all around fantastic person. I can't say good things enough about her. She's amazing!

Theresa was there for us when we decided to move to Scottsdale. She helped us find a suitable rental, something that I would recommend all out of towner's do before buying, as well as helping us find and purchase a fabulous home.

Part of the challenge for us was figuring out where within Scottsdale we wanted to live and how much we wanted to spend to live there. We looked at neighborhoods from top to bottom and over a huge price range. Theresa was patient and knew both the area and market inside and out. She then used her negotiating skills to help us get a great deal on our new home. We couldn't be happier and will recommend her to anyone seeking a new home.

I had the pleasure of having Theresa help me find a condo in Scottsdale. I enjoyed Theresa's happy energy to locate what I was looking for. I found she has all the tools to make what can be a stressful time more of a enjoyable time. Each step of the way in my purchase was done in a timely and professional way. She was always easy to contact at anytime to answer any questions. I have pucheased property in a few different places in North America but can easily say that Theresa is the best agent I have used to purchased property.

Here's the bottom line. Theresa knows what she's doing. In fact she is so respected that our Remax agent in Chicago said to call Theresa here in Phoenix when we decided to relocate. Theresa patiently showed us nearly a dozen homes that fit our criteria and had the gumption to tell us when a house just didnt feel right. Putting our needs before hers. In one day she found us the perfect house. And if thats not enough she was gracious, on time, and took it upon herself to make the process of moving to Phoenix from Chicago seamless. I adore her as a professional and a trusted friend who gets things done right and timely. I cant recommend her enough!

Hello, I had a wonderful experience with Theresa, she is very knowledgeable and was current on all the real estate laws and regulations, stuff I wanted no part of. We looked at many homes as I was very finicky what I was looking for, Theresa was patient and professional, we found the perfect house for me and I will always be grateful for everything Theresa did for me.
