To Whom it May Concern,

This Letter is in reference to Teresa Larson of Century 21. Teresa represented me as my Real Estate Agent during my first home purchase from January of 2012 through April of 2012. It is my pleasure to recommend her for any new or experienced home buyer.

As a new home buyer, I valued trust, knowledge, patients, and punctuality, all of which Teresa excelled at and performed to a level exceeding my expectations. Throughout the many emotional ups and downs of purchasing a home, Teresa was with me the entire way with well-informed guidance and understanding of what step and direction needed to be taken. Her caring manner and many years of experience were easily recognized during this process with Teresa.

I am pleased to say that I was able to happily get into a home that I desired at a price that was well under my budget. I am in debt with many thanks to her and the representation she provided. I will be seeking Teresa out again in the future when the day comes that a second home will be in my investment needs. With her r know that r can ensure nothing but the best experience from the financial aspect to the personal characteristic of every part of the process that is put into purchasing a home.

Best Regards,

Working with Teresa Larson in purchasing our home was a true joy! Her knowledge and ability in the real estate market exceeded any expectations we had. Her willingness to work around our schedules during the week and meet on weekends made scheduling effortless. Teresa has the ability and expertise to work with all types of loans and sales, which made our house buying experience very smooth. Her commitment to us as clients was reassuring and we could not have been more pleased with her service to us.

Having known Teresa for many years, she put aside any personal feelings and handled the transaction in a very professional manner. As both the listing agent and buying agent, she was able to maintain a neutral position and was very informative to us even if it was something we may not have wanted to know. After the close of our home she followed up to see that everything that was in the contract had been complete and to our satisfaction.

Timing was very critical in our purchasing process and Teresa made sure to complete everything In a timely manner. From writing our offer to booking inspections, Teresa was available at the drop of a hat. Her commitment to work with us was professional and diligent. Her involvement in our transaction and dedication was endless and we could not imagine have imagined using another agent! Her dedication to her work was very apparent not only in our transaction but in the community. Teresa is a firm believer in community support and lends a hand when needed! We will continue to recommend Teresa as an agent to others and use her for our future real estate needs.

To whom it may concern:

On a Friday the 13th, I became the owner of MY FIRST HOME! It was truly a lucky day and one that I never dreamed would come true. I owe so much of it to my Realtor, Teresa Larson. TERESA LARSON was recommended by a mutual friend and upon meeting her for the first time, knew that she would be wonde~ to work with. Teresa is PROFESSIONAL and always bas a smile. I was a first time buyer and she patiently made sure that I understood everything that I was signing. I learned a great deal from her because of her knowledge and EXPERIENCE. Teresa makes you feel like you are her only client by always updating you on the progress, taking phone calls, e-mailing and, most of all, celebrating your move in day.

I RECOMMEND Teresa Larson to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.

Sincerely, Tammara Askea

To Whom It May Concern:

It Is with great pleasure that I write this letter of recommendation for Teresa Larson. We had the good fortune to select Teresa as our Agent to sell our house in the Avenues and assist us in buying a newer house in the Summer of 2010. Teresa brought a terrific set of tools to the effort.

  • Her core tool is a powerful work ethic. I know she had other clients and business while she worked for us, but it was never apparent. She treated us like we were the only people in the world. She was quick to return calls and emails. She always did what she said she would do, and always seemed to be working on our transactions.
  • She knows the Chico area past, present and future. It was helpful in our decision making to hear the unique elements of Chico's neighborhoods and housing stock.
  • Empathy. She understood and coached us through the emotional roller coaster involved tn buying and selling a house. I always felt I had a partner supporting me through the process.
  • Realism. She set reasonable expectations for us. This is a tough market and there is a range of options for buyers and sellers. I always felt I was getting realistic information and advice from Teresa.
  • Enjoyable. The process was challenging but Teresa was always encouraging, positive and fun to be with. Of all the reasons I feel so fortunate to have worked with Teresa, this was the most important for me. I really enjoyed working with her.

Teresa has a boatload of awards and achievements as a Realtor. Having had the pleasure of working with her, I understand why. She will work hard for you, do what she says she will do, and support your wishes. For these reasons and more, I highly recommend Teresa Larson.

To say I'm a big fan of Teresa Larson as a Real Estate Agent is an understatement. I actually contacted Teresa back when she first got her license about 15 years ago to sell my mother's home and another acre parcel. At that point Teresa hadn't sold or listed anything but knowing her as a person I had confidence in her. Well that paid off with the home and other parcel both selling in LESS THAN A WEEK! Since that time my family has used her services frequently with real estate transactions with always great outcomes.

In 2009 my mother passed away and I needed Teresa's services again. I decided to purchase my mother's home from the estate and the family decided to keep another parcel of property. Even though these weren't "transactions" for her she assisted me with getting appraisals and an Engineer to confirm property boundaries. With all her professional contacts she helped me get everything accomplished and the estate settled with the properties. At that time, one of the worst times in real estate history, I decided to place my Chico home on the market due to my purchase of my mother's home. Again she pulled together realistic comps and game plan based on my aggressive timeline to get the house sold ASAP! Again, in her normal fashion, the house sold within THREE HOURS of hitting the market. Some might think it sold that fast because I was under price .... NOT TRUE. The actual truth is I actually priced the house above Teresa's colleges' recommendations and an appraisal that was performed. I directly attribute that to Teresa's performance and strategies. Prior to getting the house on the market, Teresa walked through the house making recommendations on how best to present the house. I took all of her recommendations even though it meant 90 days of remodeling efforts which paid off big time with a full price offer and fast sale! Even when the house first offer fell out after two weeks (no fault of Teresa's), she put it back on the market and sold in 4 hours!!! As soon as Teresa found out that it would be back on the market she made follow up phone calls to Realtors that had customers that had shown interest in the house while in escrow. I highly endorse Teresa as a realtor without hesitation. She is professional, driven, punctual, organized, impeccable follow thru, continuous communication and hustles! When Teresa is your agent you have nothing to worry about, she will make it an exceptional experience.

Subj: letter of recommendation

Date: 5/12/2012 8:24:58 A.M.

To whom it may concern,

My name is Joan Sligar. My mother and I hired Teresa Larson to list and sell Mom's home in Chico. Mom's home had been listed for over a year with another Realtor. Within the first week of listing the home with Teresa, we had 2 offers.

Teresa had suggested that we stage the home, who to stage it with, and to clean up the yard. She called to check on the progress and let us know when it would be listed. Teresa kept us informed with phone calls and emails every step of the way through this process. Teresa has an index full of people to inspect and repair things that need to be done quickly. Teresa will admit that she is a control freak and likes to get things done. I admire this "can and will do" attitude. This made the sale of Mom's house flow quickly and smoothly. I recommend Teresa Larson for all your real estate needs without any reservations.

Sincerely, Joan Sligar
