She was the one who first of all located this amazing condo at a great time. When it was time for my husband and me to sell she helped to get it quickly listed and sold for a cash offer. She has the best sources for everything and anything.

Tera was an absolute lifesaver! As first-time home buyers, there were 5-7 times that we would have made missteps but Tera advised us to take the correct action. Tera was patient, understanding and most importantly, had our best interest in mind. I truly can't recommend Tera enough!

In December 2020 my family moved from California to Austin to be close to our grandchildren. I have been a California Licensed Real Estate Broker since 1979. Prior to our move, I called a number of Realtors in Austin and decided to work with Tera. She provided me with an amazing amount of information on a vast number of communities in Greater Austin. As a result of the data, I determined market values and trends. Through the data and Tera's input, we were able to target what and where we wanted it in two weeks. She presented a home to us that was off-market and we jumped on it. We were dealing with a difficult seller. Tera knew just how hard to push to competently represent us while not alienating the seller. All states have their laws and protocols and I must say California and Texas are very different. Tera stayed in her lane while referring me to attorneys, insurance agents, inspectors, plumbers, electricians, handymen, landscape architects, and other related real estate vendors. On the personal side, Tera referred us to our new doctors. She has also introduced us to people in Austin for friendship. I would more apt define Tera's skills as a concierge. Yesterday, February 23, 2021, my daughter and her family closed on their own home nearby and Tera represented them as well. This was also an off-market transaction. Tera once again performed. This was a 14-day escrow that was scheduled to close on February 16, 2021, right in the middle of The Austin Freeze of February 14 to 19. Needless to say, it didn't close on time. While all of us were dealing with the Freeze, and emotions were high, Tera didn't miss a beat. She was able to negotiate to have funds held in escrow, get out an inspector to identify the Freeze damage and get the escrow closed the day after we were told we don't have to boil water anymore. This was, and continues to be, an emotional time for anyone going through the Freeze and Tera steered the ship. In summary, Tera is has been amazing. In all of my years in the business, I have only come across a handful of Realtors that do the job in the same league as Tera.

Tera is the best broker I have ever worked with. Super knowledgeable and helpful. She treated me like a person instead of a transaction and went the extra mile on multiple occasions. Would highly recommend her to anyone.
Thomas C & Shin-Ting W, Westlake Hills
We loved working with Tera and recommend her highly! She is an absolute professional-- extremely knowledgeable about all of the neighborhoods in Austin, as well as about design and builds and resale. She is very attentive to her clients' needs, organized, thorough, and has fantastic support in every step, from initial consultation to search, negotiation, and close. Tera made it an enjoyable and easy process to find the house we love-- we even came in under budget, not easy to say in this market! We couldn't have asked for a better partner and experience.
Stephanie S & James D, North Austin
Tera has been our realtor three times now—twice to buy and once to sell—and we have had nothing but a positive experience each time. She is conscientious about her work and exhibits a high degree of integrity. She was mindful of our goals and expectations, and we couldn’t ask for a better real estate partner. Tera has the skills and knowledge to engage with Austin’s market, i.e., she knows the local properties and has the expertise to find her clients the best match whether selling or buying. In addition to being highly qualified, she is also quite personable. She spent time showing us properties and always made us feel like we were the most important client she has. We unreservedly recommend her!
William & Brenda W, Downtown Austin
We have used Tera’s service as a realtor three times now. Twice when buying a home and once when selling. All of our experiences with her have been excellent. When we were looking to purchase a new home, Tera sent us listings daily and was even able to get us in to see a few properties before they were officially on the market. While viewing homes, Tera was thorough, pointing out things that were red flags or features that made a home more valuable. It was great working with an agent who so clearly wanted to make sure that we found the right house for us and not just looking to make a sell. When we were selling our house, Tera’s expertise and experience were crucial. She has a great eye for staging, as well as an amazing list of contacts and was able to put us in touch with very skilled service people to re-paint our house and put in new carpet. All of her hard work paid off because within a week of listing it, we received an offer for the full asking price. I would highly recommend Tera to anyone looking to buy or sell a house in the Austin area. Her dedication and skill as a realtor really can’t be matched!

It was our pleasure to work with Tera on the purchase of our home and I would unreservedly recommend her to all home buyers or sellers in the Austin area. She is an extremely knowledgeable real estate agent who was able to provide us with many options for our home search that we had not previously considered. I would especially recommend Tera for anyone looking to buy and then make home repairs or updates as she has excellent knowledge of remodeling and interior design. She has extensive knowledge about real estate investing and maximizing your equity, so I would recommend her to those looking to purchase a property for investment purposes as well. I know that we also benefited greatly from Tera's negotiation skills. The inspector found several issues with our home and Tera was able to negotiate the repair of all of them. Yes... all of them. Tera was a joy to work with. I was dreading looking for a home and making this major purchase, but her fun personality made the process enjoyable. She was very responsive to all our calls and emails and I felt she answered all our questions as first-time homebuyers completely and honestly. I cannot recommend Tera strongly enough to anyone looking for help with a real estate matter in the Austin area.
Chelsea & John E, Austin
I worked with Tera on three occasions. This last time was after my divorce and the first time I was buying a home on my own. Tera was extremely knowledgeable, very helpful, always available, and promptly responded to million questions I bombarded her with to make sure I am comfortable with my decision. In addition to being a great Realtor, Tera has an eye for design. She went out of her way to assist me with the selections for my house as well as window coverings. I strongly recommend Tera to anyone looking for a great Realtor!
Goga B, Mueller
I highly recommend Tera. She helped us with our transition from Arizona to Austin in so many ways. Not only does Tera know the Austin area as a native, but she also provided us with vendor contacts and recommendations that we would have never found without her. She helped with a temporary rental as well as finding our permanent home. Her love of what she does is evident in all the details.
Tom & Beth C, Leander
Tera doesn't just listen to what you want, she "tunes in" to what's important to you. She doesn't try to sell you a house, she works tirelessly to assist you in finding your "home." In our case, our home needed some upgrading and remodeling so Tera helped us select all the items we needed and set up each upgrade using high-quality service providers to do the work. Even now, a year after closing, Tera keeps in touch to see how we're doing and if we need any help from her or her providers.
Kenneth and Cuc M, Lakeway
Tera helped our family with our transition from out of state on so many levels that we didn't even know we needed. She was able to find us a great rental house in a very limited market when we first moved to Austin. Tera is so knowledgeable about the area, schools, and businesses that she made our initial transition very smooth. Then when we decided to buy, Tera found us an amazing property that our family is so excited to make our own. In fact, Tera is helping us through the next phase of renovating with her great design sense and depth of knowledge of the entire process. My family and I highly recommend Tera for her knowledge and ability but most importantly you can trust her through every step of the way to look out for you and help you through buying a home.
