Testimonials

There are many things I can say about the high quality of service I provide to my home seller and home buyer clients, but probably none would be as credible as testimonials from some of my recent clients themselves.

So please take a moment to read the following testimonials. I hope they indicate my experience and integrity, as well as make it clear how much I enjoy helping people with their real estate needs.

I would be happy to email you additional testimonials if you are interested.

 

Kim Fischbach - Rancho Santa Margarita

       "I would recommend you to anyone that needed to sell their home.  The personal contact you kept with me was exceptional.  I knew and understood that the real estate market was not a prime time for selling but you used all possible means to market my home and I was satisfied with the price. Your strategies took advantage of the changes in the market place.  I feel that it was your constant awareness of the market that brought in the buyer.  I appreciate all your efforts". 

 

Rex Richmond - So Orange County Buyer

       "We had to let you know that you were our favorite agent for and away.  It is no big surprise that you are a success".

 

Bill & Janet Barden - Mission Viejo

        We have bought and sold 7 homes, most in the Mission Viejo/Laguna Hills area, working with a number of different real estate agents.  Most agents put "closing the deal" first and the seller's needs a distant second".  Terry is an exemplary agent, one who put a high priority on our needs, keeping us informed throughout.  Certainly people are motivated by money, but she more than earned her commission in knowledge of the area, research, communication with the other agents, answers to our many questions and concerns, and savvy business techniques.  Terry was the hardest working agent - other agents promised the moon to get a listing, but Terry performed.

 

Abby & Chris Cruz - Irvine

        Thank you for helping us find our first home.  We don't know what we would have done with you!  Thank you for always looking out for our best interest, and for being so patient with our many questions.

 

Troy & Alicia Varenchik - Mission Viejo

        Tery was very patient thoughout the process and very knowledgeable about the areaShe took the time to get to know us and show us homes that reflected our preferences.  Looking back we realize buying a home could have been a very stressful experience.  Because of Terry's extensive knowledge, years of experience and integrity the process could not have gone better.  We looked forward to spending time with her searching for homes.  We would highly recommend Terry to any homebuyer.

 

John Fioretto, Lake Forest, CA

 My wife Lisa and I recently married and decided to each sell our homes and blend our families in a new home.

We interviewed several real estate agents with which to list our homes. Lisa lived in RSM and I in Foothill Ranch. We leaned toward using a neighborhood specialist for the respective listings. However, during our interview with Terry Matheus, we became convinced that selling real estate is a combination of both science and art, and realized that Terry was very experienced and capable on both counts.

We contracted with Terry to list both homes. The outcome has exceeded our expectations.  Both homes sold quickly and at favorable pricing and terms.  In both deals, both buyer and seller have been more than satisfied with the results.

Terry is very professional, knowledgeable, and personable. In one of the transactions, she represented both buyer and seller. The transaction went very smoothly from start to finish.

I highly recommend Terry as a competent agent not only for listings in her traditional “farm” in RSM, but also for listings anywhere in the local Orange County market.

 

Gene and Nancy Jones, Rancho Santa Margarita

We were nervous about our first experience with a 1031 exchange. Your guidance throughout the process was invaluable.

Nancy and I agree that you did a fantastic job helping us with the sale of our Laguna Niguel house. Your advice to improve but not to over improve the property, such as leaving the master bathroom tub and shower as is and not replacing all the windows, saved us from spending extra money that would not have increased the return on investment. The virtual furnished house brochure was a great idea and we think it was a significant help in selling the property.

And, your advice on handling of the home inspection requests helped seal the deal (we were considering backing out on the sale if we had to address all the repairs requested).

On the replacement properties, we appreciated your patience at reviewing the many options (duplex, triplex or two homes) and many different areas. Linda Caylor did an outstanding job of finding candidate properties and putting together summary packages that made the property reviews easy to understand. She also did a great job on the document reviews and escrow paper signings by responding quickly to our questions and expediting the process. Your candid opinions on the properties helped us make better decisions than we could have on our own.

In summary, it has been a real pleasure working with you and Linda and we feel lucky to have selected you to handle our sale and re-purchase.

 

Jane Wolfe, Mission Viejo, CA

Terri has been my real estate agent for many years and has represented me as a listing agent and as a sales agent on several properties. She is the ultimate professional - she does her research, knows the market, understands the complete process for buying and selling. She always kept me informed of what was taking place and what I should expect. Her expertise I have and will continue to rely on in any real estate transaction. She earned the 5-star rating in all categories.

 

Richard Brostrom, Rancho Santa Margarita, CA

Terry is Awesome! She helped us buy our first home in Mission Viejo back in 2001, our second house in 2011 and an investment property 2014! She knows the area well and understands the clients needs! Did I mention she also placed a renter in our 2014 units in 3 days.... THANK YOU!!
