Testimonials

Terri Mayall had been highly recommended in my search for a Realtor by my attorney; I had interviewed a few other Realtors and Terri was the very best choice for me.  In shorter time than I had imagined, I was able to buy my dream home. I am very grateful for Terri's help with this entire experience.  I could not be happier with the result.
 
When I first approached Terri about representing me as a Realtor, she enthusiastically said, "Of course! I'd be glad to help you." I was impressed by such a kind and welcoming response.  Terri was always friendly, extremely experienced, well-connected and well-respected, always prepared, and made the experience of buying a house pleasant and memorable despite the inherent stresses in the process of home-buying. I was always impressed by her intelligence, calm demeanor, resourcefulness and the really good name she has for herself in the community. And her office staff was always excellent, efficient and professional. 
 
I am very grateful every single day for the wonderful home I was able to buy, and will always hold a very fond and warm place in my heart for Terri Mayall, who lent her expertise to make it happen.

“Terri Mayall handled the listing and sale of our family home in Aptos. Terri is the consummate professional paying attention to every detail. In a very tough environment, she worked diligently marketing our property. Besides the many open houses, she did an excellent job getting our home advertised in the best positions in the local newspapers and real estate publications.

In addition she was very adept at identifying qualified buyers so little time was spent with interested buyers that were not really in a position to proceed. Terri always seemed to be a step ahead so when any questions or issues arose they were quickly dealt with and resolved. We would not hesitate to chose Terri to represent us again and recommend her without reservation.”

“Terri is the consummate professional. She is with you from the beginning of the process to the very end. Her people skills are excellent, and she remains always on top of the details. She has a good sense of humor and perspective throughout the ordeal, keeping things going smoothly, which is the best we can hope for. Plus, it’s fun to work with her!”

“For over a year, as a buyer’s agent, Ms. Mayall has represented Camphill Communities California, a California not-for-profit corporation, as the organization searched for an additional property in the neighborhood in which it currently owns and operates other homes. She has been a helpful and diligent agent advising us about possible properties as they come on the market. Finally a property was identified for purchase. From that moment on she handled all the details of the purchase from the signing of the agreement to purchase through the escrow process and right to closing.

This particular sale involved some unexpected and complicated permitting issues that arose after the agreement was signed. Ms. Mayall was professional and competent throughout the entire process leading to the resolution of these issues. With her excellent help all the parties were satisfied when escrow closed. All of her skills as a real estate agent were tested in this deal and she came through with flying colors.”

“Terri is fantastic! My wife and I needed someone to show us around Santa Cruz and educate us about the area. She was very patient with us, and addressed all of our questions in a concise and warm manner. As further testament to her demeanor, my 18 month old daughter loved spending time with her.

The same day, Terri showed us a number of properties and helped us put an offer in on our first house! Long story short, she was instrumental in helping us win a bid against THREE other buyers. She did all of this with an unspoken dignity and grace that is unusual in an industry dominated by volume driven sales people.

Our fun didn’t stop there, she was constantly keeping us apprised of expectations and next steps in the escrow process. Along with out excellent mortgage broker, and title company we were able to close the entire deal in record time! Terri was by FAR the most important part of our home buying experience, and I cannot recommend her enough.”

“Thank you Terri, for all your support in the process of buying this house. What I had somehow thought would be a fairly easy process was complicated by all the new rules and restrictions. Also, there was much to be aware of — all of those details, which if were not taken care of, could have caused us problems and extra money. But you guided us through the process, like guiding us down a rushing river of class 4 rapids. You were always aware of what was ahead — and what could come at us from a different direction, and deftly moved us through the process with the attention to detail and concern for our protection, needs and wishes that allowed me to have minimal stress because I was so confident in your abilities. You will be the first one I call when I buy my next property!”

“Selling my home was far less stressful and infinitely less painful than I had feared due entirely to Terri and her expertise, flexibility, negotiating skills and patience.”

“We were out-of-town buyers who were totally ignorant about Santa Cruz. Terri did a masterful job of getting to know us and our housing needs, and only then showing us property and teaching us about the area. Although we were pinched for time, she made herself available on short notice, and was professional and very efficient to the conclusion of the process. Would we use her again? In a heartbeat...”
