Ultra Professional Full Service Realtor
Teri Kainz is hands down the best realtor that we’ve ever worked with. After the housing and financial crisis, we were left underwater on our house with an over-sized floating rate credit line at the same time that our family of five was growing out of our 3 bedroom. We knew Teri through our kids’ sports and expressed to her our frustration with our predicament. But Teri was undaunted. She spoke knowledgeably and confidently about the changes that were taking place in the mortgage rules, the interest rate environment and the local hosing market and felt certain that she could help us get the right home with the right loan for our family. From that point on the service was always quick and efficient but wit a warmth and attention to detail we could have hardly expected. She put us immediately in touch with an excellent loan officer who knew the government’s HARP program through and through and who wasted no time in working toward securing the loan we’d need. Teri focused on the home search and seemed to have an innate ability to understand the kind of home and neighborhood we’d be happy in. She was frugal with our time while generous with her own, finding and filtering prospective choices so that we only saw the homes that were right. At the same time she worked energetically to prepare our home for sale – arranging inspections, contractors and landscapers but always with an eye towards minimizing the costs to us. She was impressively savvy about the local market, tracking upcoming listings through her network so that we’d be sure to see new offerings early. She was equally smart in handling the transaction getting us into a flexible contract on our sale in order to provide us with more leverage for our purchase and, when she’d found us the perfect home, guiding us to a successful offer without over paying. After the contracts were in place, the customer service, if possible, became even more attentive. When my eleven year old daughter became heartsick at the thought of moving from the only home she’d ever known, Teri, who has a daughter of her own, took the time to sit with her an talk thought it. She managed all of the different pieces into a successful close, smoothly resolving every issue that came up. Finally, when all was said and done, she even threw us a housewarming party! My wife and I know, and are friends with, quite a few realtors around town, many of which are very good at what they do but since our experience with Teri, we’ve had no choice but to refer all of our friends and contacts to her for their real estate needs. If you’re looking for an ultra-professional, full service realtor who treats her clients like family and doesn’t just find, but gets them, the best home possible, then Teri Kainz is YOUR realtor.
