Listings - Teresa’s artistic background and interior design has helped her in “staging” homes for sale. She will go through each room with the owners and give tips to help the room show better – a home that is decorated well, or furniture placed well, etc. has a much higher chance of selling quickly! Even builders new homes & vacant homes, she comes through and adds a “touch of class” to the main rooms by placing decorator items such as silk plants & trees, candles, vases, in order to give the home more warmth.Rutherford Realty has many venues in which to market your home…. Her goal is to sell your home for the highest price possible in the shortest amount of time!
Buyers - She is always excited about finding the right home for the right buyer ! She will never show you a “Neiman Marcus” house if your pocketbook is “Penneys”, nor will she show you 200 homes. She does your job for you prior to meeting with a buyer by narrowing down the city (usually per price home you are searching for), the correct neighborhood and all the criteria that you provide her, in order to make your selection an easy one. She wants the buying process to be a fun & simplified one!
