Teresa's primary focus is on her clients and the city where we live, work and play. Her goal is to be a source of information that goes beyond buying and selling homes and to provide exceptional service and marketing, and to share her knowledge about the city she's grateful to call home.
Having helped clients purchase and sell properties in every sector of the Portland Metro Area, Teresa considers her true area of specialty is not geographic, but rather in serving her clients` needs by concentrating on their particular goals and working diligently until they are met.
With over 25 years of experience as a Realtor, Teresa enjoys her work more every year. She loves that she learns something new with each transaction and appreciates the relationships and friendships she has made through the years! Her goal is to go beyond client expectations, whether in marketing their current home or finding their next one, keeping them informed every step of the way. She prides herself on speaking honestly and openly, evaluating needs, addressing questions and concerns as well as finding and negotiating workable solutions to any issues that may arise. Teresa knows buying and selling properties can be challenging and stressful and strives to keep a sense of humor and help her clients do the same to smooth the process.
After graduating from the University of Oregon, Teresa worked in the legal field in Eugene and subsequently in San Francisco where she and her husband moved just after they were married in 1983. Their first son was born in SF in 1987, and in 1990 (after the earthquake!) they returned to Oregon to raise their family in what they consider to be the most livable city on the West Coast. Their two sons went through the Lincoln School District and moved on to the Univ of Oregon, so they are officially an All-Duck family, although they have many friends on the other side of the field!
