"Terri Eklund is the Realtor You Want"
If you are buying or selling a home in the Battle Ground or Vancouver area, Terri Eklund is the realtor you want. In March of 2008, she guided us through buying a home we wanted in Battle Ground contingent upon the selling of our home in Vancouver. Despite the dramatic down turn in the housing market, we were able to find a buyer for our home just four days after her sign went up in our front yard, and it sold for well above the assessed value. Terri had great recommendations for staging our house to sell. She and her husband Ken have a fabulous website with video tours of hundreds of properties. Terri promptly worked out several sudden complicated issues with ease during the selling/buying process. There seems to be no barrier she cannot overcome. Terri obviously enjoys the real estate business. She is energetic, always available, assertive, diplomatic, considerate, hardworking, creative, knowledgeable and down to earth. If I ever buy or sell a home again, I will definitely give her a call. I have already highly recommended Terri to several friends who are considering buying and selling property.
I can't say enough. Terri is outstanding in what she does. I was very skeptical for many reasons of real estate agents until I was introduced to her. She was professional, yet personal. I appreciate her approach in all she did in selling our home and finding a new one for us. Terri helped us find the home of our dreams. I will refer her over and over again.
"Worked for Us"
What a great experience we had working with Terri and Ken Eklund on our relocation to Longview! From our first meeting, we were impressed with the insight their experience brought to the table. Our budget for buying a new house was dependent on what we could sell our current residence for; Terri's careful market research made us confident our asking price was competitive. Her advice on staging our home for sale was invaluable. She cut down our "honey do" list of projects we had come up with, and helped us zero in on what buyers would really pay attention to. She even lent us her own dining room table and chairs! What else can we say? She sold our house in three days. We even had two competing offers -- one above asking price! I'm convinced that is a direct result of Terri's skill as a realtor and not a "hot" market or a "good" neighborhood. The house right down the street "for sale by owner" is, well... still for sale by owner.
When purchasing our new home, we looked at a property in Longview we wanted to put an addition onto. Terri and Ken went to the county offices to verify the septic system capacity and found it was actually recorded differently than what the sellers had believed it to be. Not only did they give us that information, they actually figured out what work would need to be done to the system to meet our requirements, how long it would take and about how much it would cost -- all invaluable information that made us decide to keep looking. As a result, we ended up with the home of our dreams, and couldn't be more excited about the move.
This is the first time we (or anyone we've ever known) have had a realtor that we felt actually worked for us. What a refreshing experience. Thank you Terri and Ken! You've restored our faith in real estate as a profession.
