“Teresa was fantastic! Marketing to contract was 2 weeks. Very knowledgeable and personable. Was available to answer any questions we had in a timely fashion. Home was sold for $50,000 over list price. We were so pleased with Teresa that we have utilized her services again for purchase of a home. Thank you, Teresa!!”
“Teresa was amazing to work with. She developed a plan for selling our house; we followed it and sold for way over asking in less than a week. She was our advocate at every step in the process and really helped us in dealing with a fairly demanding buyer. She’s a tough negotiator and yet has a calming demeanor that helped during the inevitable moments of panic and stress that come with getting an old house ready for sale. She’s also quite fun. I’d work with her again in a heartbeat.”

During our first interview, it was clear that she had a vast knowledge of Altadena. She produced a time line for the preparation and sale of the home which was very aggressive. Her many resources helped prepare the for sale which was very important and necessary in selling my mother's home. She helped me through the entire sale process by being responsive and thorough. Her negotiation skills are excellent as evident by the quick and profitable sale of the home.
Teresa is a smart woman with a kind heart, a good listener and a calming influence in dealing with this process.
She truly deserves this 5 Star rating!”

“Teresa Fuller is a realtor/broker par excellence. She has outstanding reviews because she has earned them and truly deserves the accolades. I was impressed with her from the first time I met her. During the interview, I was able to ascertain her extensive knowledge of the housing market and, specifically, in Altadena, California. Her personal residence in this city enhances her background of the community which indeed facilitates quicker sales of local property.
She has an extensive network of resources and has a team of professionals who can assist in getting a home ready for sale. I can't imagine what I would have done without the use of her staff to help pack, dispose of unwanted items, paint, and make necessary repairs. Teresa herself was often present to lead her team to ensure that everything was completed to her high standards. Once the property was staged, it was transformed into a move-in ready home that appealed to many interested buyers.
Though her high level of energy was evident from the start, it was maintained throughout the process until the was at a very competitive figure, well above the listed price. Teresa's enthusiasm is equaled by her engaging, friendly personality. She is so charismatic, and one is drawn to her as if she were a trusted, longtime friend. She is highly intelligent, and with her educational background, Teresa is able to employ strategies to provide a buyer or a seller with the best options possible. Her advice during my experience as a seller was always spot-on and much appreciated.
I will definitely ask Teresa to assist us with our next sales project. I am confident in her real estate abilities and look forward to working with her again in the future.”
