I worked with Theresa for the sale of my two duplexes. She was hardworking and steadfast. Theresa was always available to answer questions and she was very aggressive and persistent when it came to the submitted offers. I have met someone who can help me on all my future real estate endeavors and discovered a true friendship.
Theresa was FANTASTIC as our Realtor for both the sale of our home and the purchase of our new place. She went WAY above and beyond and we couldn't have done it without her. We are super happy with the customer service we received from her and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone else!
Theresa Ferrara was the best choice for us, because she took the time to understand what we wanted and needed out of a home for our family. All aspects of our home buying purchase went as smoothly as possible,therefor we would recommend Theresa to any potential homeowner.
Theresa did a fantastic job for me. My purchase had a low purchase price but she treated me like a million dollar customer every step of the way. She gave me good counsel, was a gem to work with, never rushed me yet was always completely on top of everything. This is the third home I've purchased in my life, so I'm not a beginner, and I'm completely happy with everything she did for me. I really don't think there is anything else I could have hoped for in a realtor. I would recommend Theresa to anyone, anytime, anywhere.
Theresa helped us to sell my parents home. This was a unique situation in that my parents were forced to sell due to health reasons. The had been their home for over 50 years. Theresa worked hard to get my parents a fair price. We have worked with many realtors and the experience with Theresa has been the best.
Theresa provided me great guidance through the home buying process. She provided advice for the first time home buyer that made me feel that I was doing the right thing all the way through from viewing to purchase.
