Testimonials

"Terri's willingness to drop everything in her personal and professional life and craft a winning strategy for us made us winners. But the story is not over yet. Discrepancies in the disclosures were discovered and the agreement had to be renegotiated. Some agents just want to get to closing with as little hassle as possible to collect their commission. Not Terri. She fought for us to renegotiate the terms, jeopardizing the sale and her commission. When we told her we really appreciated that she had put our interests first and foremost and pursued them aggressively, she replied simply: 'That's my job.' If you are looking for an agent who will put your interests first, leave no stone unturned, and develop a savvy, winning buying strategy, you can do no better than Terri White."

"My wife and I were new to the East Bay, moving from Brooklyn. Terri was fantastic, super responsive and professional. She helped us tour the neighborhoods, understand the differences in valuation, and gain a good grasp of the market. My wife and I wanted to move quick on buying a house which can be very difficult in this economy - Terri helped us find a house that fit our needs. Throughout the process, Terri was patient and resourceful and has continued to follow up and help us out as we get settled. We really appreciate Terri and would recommend her to anyone."

"Terri came highly recommended by a friend, and after interviewing several realtors in the area, we hired her when it became obvious that she was the most responsive and qualified of the group. What made our situation difficult was that we lived out of town and could not possibly fly back to CA  to see each home in person. What’s more, we needed to be closed on a house before our lease was up. However, it was obvious that this wasn’t unusual for Terri as she’d been in many similar situations in the past. For every house that we were interested in, Terri diligently took videos of the entire house, with commentary, and answered all of our questions at all hours of the day/night. The time I did fly in to see houses, she picked me up from the airport, treated me out to lunch, and showed me all the houses I could ever want. After we closed on our house, since we were still out of state, Terri continued to help us schedule various contractors and plan other logistics. And even long after we had moved in, she threw us a fully catered house warming party to meet our new neighbors. Terri exceeded all our expectations. Her personal touches and her love of real estate is extraordinary and we couldn’t recommend her more. Hire her now and you won’t regret it!"

"Terri is both extremely professional and knowledgeable. She was fully dedicated to my needs throughout the entire home-buying process. She brings years of experience in a variety of fields related to real estate. Terri repeatedly went above and beyond at every step of the process. I would not hesitate to recommend her to others for their real estate needs. Thank you for a pleasant home-buying experience."
- Justin & Colin


"Terri was great to work with while buying our first home. My partner and I were pretty clueless about the whole process and Terri was very patient and accommodating. Terri worked tirelessly, many times late at night to work around our busy work schedules. In   the end we got a great house that we are very happy with. I felt that Terri was genuinely looking out for our best interests and stayed in touch even after we bought the house to make sure we (and the new baby) were settling in OK. I would definitely recommend Terri as a very personable and knowledgeable realtor."

"Knowledgeable, responsive, and highly intelligent, Terri gets our highest recommendation. We had the pleasure to work with her January 2017 during the last three weeks of our 8-week house search in the Oakland/San Leandro area. She was genius when it came to spotting potentially expensive upgrades and equally genius about separating diamonds in the rough from superficially flipped homes. We found her to be skilled at walking us through the buying process from house hunt through closing. Most memorable was when she walked us through an informal foundation inspection; she gave us the information we needed to check houses we visited on our own and pointed out the types of things that are red flags. Since a home is the biggest investment many will make, for us going with Terri is a no-brainer. She's also a master negotiator which means you'll want her on your side to guide you through market analysis and contingency removal."

“We certainly appreciate all you’ve done to help us in our two major and complicated transactions… as we’ve come a long way working together intensely over these past 3 months!” – John

“Thank you so much! Once again, I just wanted to tell u how competently you have handled everything and how helpful you have been to us in what had felt like two almost impossible transactions…  I don’t know how we could have navigated any of this w/o u…” – Diane


"Terri just helped us buy a house recently and I would definitely, without hesitation, recommend her.  We were looking for a fixer upper and Terri instantly knew what we were looking for.  She went above and beyond to give me her professional opinion about various properties on the market.  She also helped throughout the process answering questions before I even thought of asking them on everything from market analysis to finances & taxes to neighborhoods.  Most importantly, while not knowing Terri before this process, I came to totally trust her and her opinion.  I never felt like she was just trying to have us buy a property but wanted us to find the right property for us and make the process as easy as possible for us.  Even my mom loved her and that's saying a lot."

"Terri is an absolutely amazing agent!  As first time home buyers, my fiance and I knew next to nothing about the process of purchasing a home.  Terri is the best guide we could have asked for.  She listened to what we were looking for in a home and was great at identifying and showing us homes that met our requirements.  On our somewhat limited budget, we knew that our future home may need some repairs, and Terri was very knowledgeable about issues that we would be able to handle ourselves with modest effort and what would end up getting us in over our heads.  On top of all of this, Terri is fun, sweet, and a pleasure to spend time with during what can be a long process of buying a home.  She is honest and forthright, and will be our agent for life.  We cannot recommend her more highly!

"Terri helped my fiancĂ©e and I find our first home, guiding us through the turbulent waters of bids, pest reports, disclosures, and everything else with ease.  She is personal and professional and goes way beyond the call of duty.  I can't imagine using someone else!"
- Landon


"I recommend Terri highly - she did a wonderful job of helping me through the process of buying a condo. As a first-time buyer I was not familiar with much of the process, but Terri set up a number of appointments to view properties, even on short notice, and answered my many questions throughout.   After my offer got accepted, she was there to help every step of the way until closing (and after that as well.) Terri is a true professional who also has a passion for her job that shows in her work, and she is also a great person to work with!"

"Terri was phenomenal. She helped me navigate the very challenging Bay Area market to get the perfect home for me. I couldn’t be happier with the result and the interactions with her. Terri is super knowledgeable, clear and fast with communication and made the home buying process so easy. I  recommend her with the highest enthusiasm."

"Terri was so kind and professional right out of the gate when it came to listing and selling my condo in Berkeley. There is so much to do in preparing a property for sale than just listing it in the multiples. Her timeline in getting the property ready was truly professional, scheduling inspections, walk thru's, and open house's. When the property finally hit the multiples it sold within 2 days at more than it was listed for and along with a very very qualified buyer. It was the fastest escrow I have ever been involved with. Like any real-estate transaction, there is always bumps and hurdles that need to be over come. Terri handled everything was grace and experience. As the seller, I felt very well represented and protected by her during the negotiations and closing of this sale.  I feel that I was truly fortunate to have her represent me on this transaction and I would highly recommend her for any of your real-estate needs."

"As an agent, giving a recommendation for a referral is something I don't take lightly. Terri did an outstanding job and could not have referred my family to a better agent.  She took the time to make recommendations to get the highest and best the subject property could bring.  After holding the property open for a couple of weeks in a row, obtained many offers well over asking price.  After nearly 30 years as a real estate professional, I can say that I would recommend Terri again for all clients wanting to relocate in the area she services.  She is simply the best."

"There are not enough good things good things that I can say about Terri White. Terri came highly recommended to us by our former agent who described her as "The Fabulous Terri White." Boy was she right. From our first email exchange Terri was on the ball. She's incredibly responsive, knowledgable, and just as sweet as can be. The house we purchased was a first home for my husband and I, and she "got" exactly what we were looking for. She always gave her honest opinion, and always made herself available for showings. As we all know, the bay area is an incredibly tough market to be a buyer in, and until we met Terri we had started to give up a bit. Terri is the grand champ you want in your corner. I without hesitation recommend Terri. Listen to her advice and you can't go wrong."
