The best listing agent imaginable.
My house is sold, moving is behind me, and I can unequivocally recommend Theresa as the best listing agent imaginable. From the initial interview to the signing of the final documents, her infectious sense of humor, her unwavering integrity, her understanding of me and the market and her remarkable communication skills were qualities that made her the perfect real estate partner.
Preparing my house for sale was filled with roadblocks I didn't suspect, including a broken sewer line in several places. If Theresa hadn't answered every email, text and phone call with the voice of experience and reason, I wouldn't be sane today. Most importantly, she kept everything in perspective, offered solutions based on her expertise, and laughed with me when things became preposterous. Once the house was on the market, Theresa stayed in constant communication with me. She made observations and offered advice without being bossy, yet all the while maintaining and sharing her professional knowledge. She patiently listened, took ample time for discussions, and turned each conversation into a judicious decision. I constantly felt she had my best interest at heart.
Looking back, Theresa truly made the entire house-on-the-market experience fun. Now, not many sellers can say that! Selling a home is a critical (even unsettling) transaction and getting it right is vital. With Theresa's high standards, effective negotiating competence and positive outlook, a gratifying conclusion is inevitable.
I wouldn't consider engaging in negotiations in real estate without Theresa.
You know it's a fantastic buying experience when you're a little sad to have actually closed on a house because you won't see your agent on a regular basis. That's my story with Theresa, but it has a happy ending: I now have the perfect home for me and a new friend.
I'd heard of home buying horror stories before embarking on this journey, but have to say it was pretty dreamy with Theresa & the team she brought to us (great mortgage broker and escrow agent). And I wouldn't consider engaging in negotiations in real estate without Theresa; she does her homework, drives to completion and all with a sunny smile. Theresa brings a fabulous balance of experience, expertise, discerning eye, calming and realness...and most importantly, a great sense of humor.

She listens to your vision and helps you see reality.
Theresa understands she is dealing with your home, not just a house. She listens to your vision and helps you see reality. Her knowledge of the housing market really helps you make decisions at each step of the process. We are very pleased with the outcome of our partnership with Theresa.
I cannot say enough good things about Theresa Truex.
I cannot say enough good things about Theresa Truex and her impeccable standard of excellence in providing professional and practical guidance combined with wisdom and support to see me through not only the sale of my West Seattle home, but the purchase of my current home in Freeland. In a depressed market coupled with my personal set of circumstances surrounding the sale of my home, Theresa instilled the confidence and support to carry me through. By following her recommendations my house was on the market for just 10 days. The offer made was well within expectations, in fact, the value of the house increased by putting it into pristine order.
When it came time for purchasing my current home, Theresa's knowledge of the area, and subsequent negotiations provided me with a home that exceeded my expectations. Her transparencey and willingness to keep the process moving regardless of the challenges and deadlines instilled such trust that to this day I still consider her 'My Fairy Godmother'.
It is truly a rarity in this cynical world and these trying times to find someone with such integrity and willingness to help you attain your goals and do with such heart and kindness.
The offer on my house in West Seattle was received on June 10th, 2011; I moved into my new home in Freeland on August 11th , 2011; just those facts alone should compel anyone considering listing or purchasing a home to contact Theresa Truex at Windermere.
We could not have hoped for a better result.
Theresa helped us sell the house that my parents had built and lived in since 1966, which was a truly difficult and stressful time in our lives. She started by recommending an estate sale company to help us with the overwhelming task of clearing out 46 years of living in one house and then recommended a landscaping and clean up crew who knew what needed to be done for a sale.
This year, like the last few years, has been a difficult one for people trying to sell homes and we were worried about the price that we would get for it, but Theresa knew the market well. She really listened to what we said and after a lot of discussion back and forth, Theresa came up with a great strategy and a scenario, and it worked out beautifully! Just the way she planned it. We could not have hoped for a better result.
I would recommend Theresa Truex to anyone who is planning to sell a home.
Calming, pragmatic and effective with a great sense of humor.
Theresa is a calming and pragmatic presence. At the same time, she has a great sense of humor that is both clever and kind. Her problem solving skills are creative, wise and intended to produce results so her clients feel served and taken care of. She leaves her ego at the front door and operates completely with a "roll up her sleeves" to get the job done attitude. She offers reasonable solutions and clearly knows not only what she is doing, but has the wisdom of life experiences. No one is funnier, more helpful, and more empathetic about the stress of buying and selling a home.
Strong presence on Whidbey.
My husband and I worked with Theresa to purchase our first home on Whidbey Island. Theresa had her work cut out with us while we were searching for our first home because we were also planning our wedding (it was a busy year!). Theresa was always patient, responsive to our questions and was truly a delight to spend time with on the island looking at homes.
Theresa knows the Seattle real estate market inside and out, but fortunately she also has a strong presence on Whidbey. With Theresa's level of expertise both in Seattle and on Whidbey, we knew she would help us find our perfect first home...and she did! We highly recommend working with Theresa for your real estate needs.
Theresa helped us along each step of the way.
Theresa helped me and my wife buy our first home. We had no idea what we were doing but Theresa helped us along each step of the way to ensure that we got a good deal on the house with no surprises. She even left us a welcoming basket in the house when we moved in. I would recommend her very strongly to anyone needing a real estate agent for buying or selling a home.
