Nothing short of excellence.
Professionalism and market knowledge was top notch. I was forced, due to incompetence and out right fabricating of facts regarding my home by two realtors prior to Ms. Marlow, thus, those two realtors were terminated. Teresa Marlow and her team were a breath of fresh air amongst the chaos. After the sell, she continued to work with me providing options for housing, assisting me on my transition to a new residence.  She delivered me from the nightmare of the  2 prior realtors, to a pleasant dream of the experience of selling my home. Look no further than Teresa Marlow and her team when selecting a realtor.

Above and beyond
Teresa Marlow is an excellent real estate agent. Her knowledge of the market, professional staging, and hard work enabled me to get the best price for my house— a record price in my area. Her positiveness in support made all the difference. She made sure that I understood everything I signed, the areas in my home to highlight, and how to keep calm and steady in getting ready for my move. She goes the extra mile. Teresa is a clear communicator and has a wonderful sense of humor. I recommend her without any reservation.

Teresa Marlow is incredibly professional and an expert in her field. We hold her in high esteem.
She is generous in spirit, "held our hand" through the whole process and was  helpful with suggesting other quality professionals for us to work with where it was needed. Our Lender  has worked with Teresa many times and she was instrumental for us getting what we needed done timely as well. Thanks to Teresa's reference, that also made our transactions much smoother and comprehensive.
 Teresa is our biggest fan, she even took pictures of our signing the title and was always happy to show us many places when we were looking over these past few years. She explained to us why something was better or needed work- always looking out for us and our needs.  She is timely with appointments and required documentations. I was very impressed on how  organized and quick the processes was for attaining the property. She explained very clearly what  we had to do  and also gave us prompts to make sure we were in line with being timely with the process .
 We feel we could not have had a better realtor or experience with anyone else. With her years of knowledge and community connections, she  made it easy for us to have our Condo in just a  few months. She also brings the best treats and positive vibes to our meetings.

Wonderful person and great professional service.
Teresa went above and beyond our expectations and acted in a very professional and organized manner.  She provided services we initially did not know were available, such as handling the cleaning and repair of the home with little involvement on our part! She always kept us up to date on the progress of the sale. We would highly recommend her if you are buying or selling a home.

Teresa was an incredible guide to buying our first home. She genuinely cares about helping you find the the house that's right for you, whatever it takes. Plus, she's incredibly knowledgeable about houses and took the time to teach us what we needed to know. Every house we visited, she dove right in and made sure to note any issues with the subfloor, the roof, etc. that she was seeing.
We couldn't have asked for anyone better to help us through this process. Super grateful to have had Teresa on our side.

Teresa is one of the most knowledgeable people I have ever met in regards to all things about houses. She was honest about the condition of the homes we looked at as well on what would need to be done to fix it. I was blown away with how comfortable she made us feel in this process. I truly believe she is not only the best realtor in our area but she is a wonderful person. She even helped us come up with a list of everything we would need to work on in the house we put an offer on. I will never recommend any other realtor. She made us feel like family and I personally always love kind honest people. I can’t express how great of a person and realtor she is.

This was the first time I had ever sold a house so it was the first time I had worked with a realtor. Teresa was beyond good. Her genuine motivation is to help people sell or buy houses. She works tirelessly to do her job and I would recommend her to anyone who needs a realtor. Her morals and ethical guidelines are impeccable; her encouragement and calmness are a welcome addition she gives her clients in this potentially extraordinary stressful time. Teresa made the selling of our house a pleasurable, non-stressful event. Look no further if you need a realtor. Teresa is a realtor’s realtor.

Teresa was really good on our first offer, just as good on our second offer, even better on our third and fourth offers, but never gave up, even when we didn't think we had a chance, since the market seemed to haver gotten away from us. She called us on a wet, windy and rainy day (one of the first in the year, and it was November) and suggested we go to that open house in the neighborhood we were interested in. It was after 3 PM. We went, liked the house and told her to make our best offer, $15K over asking. The previous 4 offers were $40 to $55K over asking. The next day she told us that our offer was accepted. We were shocked. We moved in 2 days ago. We are Homeowners and we are stoked. Thanks Teresa.

We were so fortunate our friends recommended Teresa Marlow when we moved to Santa Cruz. We had a great experience with her as our real estate agent. She has extensive knowledge of the surrounding area and knew exactly what we were looking for. Teresa offered excellent advice, answered every question plus cautioned us about making unreasonable offers when we fell too quickly for overpriced homes. She went the extra mile to get the deal closed in a smooth and timely manner which was wonderful! We highly recommend Terresa Marlow as your next real estate agent. She is a joy to work with.

I can't express enough gratitude for her help in helping me find my perfect home and supporting me through a time when I was undergoing a separate, life-changing experience. She is a wonderful friend and a great realtor!

Teresa is the absolute best! We found and purchased our home in less than a week...it was such a wild rollercoaster to say the least and Teresa kept it such a relaxed and exciting experience. She worked with us directly and kept us informed to the 10th degree through the entire process making sure we were comfortable with all the details. I wish it could have been a more drawn out process so we could hang out more! She truly is the best!

Teresa helped me and my husband purchase our dream home 8 years ago (which we still live in) and when it was time to sell our rental property (single family home) we did not hesitate for a minute to call up Teresa and have her be our agent again. Teresa provided us with her high-level of expertise in every aspect of selling our home. From getting our home ready with repairs and upgrades, to staging, to her beautiful photos and marketing of our home. She made the process easy and seamless. This extra "pre-sell" work got us top dollar for our home. It was very exciting to watch! Teresa also armed us with a lot of information so that we could make a sound decision on pricing and timing. She even made the paperwork easy for us with the latest technologies using electronic transfer of the paperwork and easy to use "docusign". Lastly, Teresa loves her trade and it really shows. She is dedicated, compassionate, understanding and has a very high regard for real estate ethics. Not to mention, if you need something done, Teresa has a long list of well-qualified professionals who will get your task done in a timely manner. We will continue to use Teresa for all of our real estate needs, no question!
