Real Client Stories and Testimonials
"Tesha and Team, On behalf of Donna Brookshire and myself, I would like to thank you all personally for selling my mom’s house. Your professional tenacity in getting the place sold numerous times and dealing with the park was outstanding. Even the times when I thought you would all give up, you dug in and tried harder. This was not an easy transaction and the pay was very low, but you all never took that into consideration and I always felt like I was a million dollar listing. We appreciate your hard work and dedication! A heartfelt thank you," Linda Rehak and Donna Brookshire

"Real Estate Struggles and the Angel That Helped Me Selling a home is never easy. I used to be a real estate broker, so I know this as well as anyone. People are very fragile and stressed out when selling their house, and I was no exception. I knew it might be a hassle, but I had no idea how hard it really was until I was in the midst of it. I was a basket case, and the whole time Tesha, and her team, helped me through every rough spot. This is my story about my real estate struggles selling my house, and the angel that helped me. Overseas Start The whole thing started while I was overseas, in India. I had a renter in my house and I knew their lease was about to expire. I also hadn’t particularly enjoyed being a landlord. So, I decided it was time to sell. I still had a couple of months before I would be back in the states, so I figured the sooner I got it listed the better. There was no one else but Tesha that even came to my mind to sell my home. We had worked together on some transactions over the years, and she was always professional and knowledgeable. So, I picked up the phone and gave her a call. She asked all the right questions and within just a few days I signed a listing agreement, via DocuSign, right from my laptop in India. Offer and Negotiations Within days we received a very solid offer. The only issue was that the closing was dependent on the buyers selling their own home first. That made me a little nervous, but we accepted it on the grounds that they would remain “bumpable,” meaning if we got a better offer with a faster close we could bump the first buyers if there home still hadn’t sold. She sent me all the paperwork electronically, and again I signed it all right from the convenience of my hotel room overseas. A few weeks later we received a better offer, so we now had a main buyer and a back-up buyer. I was feeling pretty confident that it was all going to close without any problems. Home Inspection Problems My optimistic bubble was quickly burst after the home inspection. Due to the fact that my home had been a rental for some long, there was a good deal of deferred maintenance that needed addressed. What was worse was that there was standing water in the crawlspace and the buyers wanted me to fix that, and a bunch of other things on the report. I could see my slim profits quickly vanishing and got a little panicked. Repairs Tesha and her team went right to work helping me gather bids for repairs. I didn’t even have to ask her. Also, since I was overseas she met the contractors and let them in. She has great contacts in the industry and was able to get me some fabulous prices on everything from a HVAC maintenance company to a pest company. She even negotiated with them so that they agreed to be paid out of proceeds at closing. That way I wouldn’t have to go through the hassle of mailing a check to them from India. Closing I finally made it home in time to move everything out of my house in time for closing. Again, Tesha was helpful, asking me if she could help, if I needed boxes, etc. A couple days before closing she checked in with me to make sure I was still on schedule. She wasn’t calling to pressure me, but to just check in and see if I needed anything. She really is an angel. The house sold and I’m so relieved it’s all over. It was not easy, but I know that without Tesha, it would have been much more difficult. I can’t thank her enough for all of her hard work and outstanding service."
“I have not had encountered such a professional as Robin Ray-Rutherford . My Daughter and I just become owners of a condo, Robin as our agent, was simply extraordinary. We were looking to buy a condo for well over one year and had worked with two prior agents. We went nowhere with them. With Robin, It is a much different story: she is knowledgeable in today’s real estate market; she is a barracuda as far as following everything and making sure it is done; she answers every questions right away; she is service-oriented and goes above expectations; to wrap all this up, she is very pleasant and personable. I know we are not a “big-item ticket”, yet, she treated us as she would have had she sold us a million dollar home. We will certainly feel very confident referring her any chance we get!”
"Tesha was referred to us by the realtor we worked with in buying our current home. We were looking for someone experienced in selling homes on acreage. We couldn't have met a more knowledgeable realtor. She has extensive knowledge of the area, and was so responsive to our questions you would think we were her only clients. We would recommend her in a heartbeat."
"I needed to sell our dream home due to a divorce. Tesha and her crew were very empathetic, knowing that time was essential. I asked if it would be possible to find someone who would buy the upper level and possibly let me rent in the mother-in-law unit. I hoped for interest in someone wanting 4 bedrooms , deck with a view AND income from me. It worked. This was unheard of in the realty business but I thought "why not"? Tesha kept me informed every step. Put me on an app that buzzed me every time I had to leave the house for a visit. This difficult time in my life was blessed with Tesha's help and knowledge. THANK YOU!"
"Couldn’t have done it without (Tesha) and the team. Purchasing Real estate is a very convoluted process, thank you for everything."
“If you are trying to find a great Realtor, look no further… Tesha Perry will help you sell your house and find the perfect property for your new home. She listens carefully to what you need and want (both in the selling and buying) and will be an incredible help at every step. She is very customer focused, knowledgeable and will take great care in all the paperwork and negotiations… your Real Estate Advocate! Tesha is fun to work with and will make the entire process enjoyable.”
"You will not find a harder working agent, she is always going above the call of duty."
“Tesha is a wonderful, hard working, and honest person! She took us step by step in the home ownership process. We went through so many houses and took up so much of her time, I felt bad when I realized how picky we were actually being. However, she found us the perfect house…one that we have been able to call our home. I would recommend anyone I know who is in the market to buy a home to go through Tesha. Our experiences with her were spectacular!”
“After a job change required me to relocate several hours away, I needed to sell my home. Over the course of five years, I listed the home twice using two independent real estate agents. In both cases, their efforts produced little interest and certainly no bona fide offers. As a result, the home sat vacant with the exception of brief periods where the home was rented. Tired of subsidizing the payment and the landlord headaches, I contacted Tesha who, in less than a month, obtained an offer on the home. Even better, through her tenacious efforts, she obtained a second offer ten days later significantly higher than the first. Tesha effectively and efficiently managed every detail and aspect of the sale and closing. I am very grateful for her hard work, attention to detail, and always going the “extra mile.” I would highly recommended her to any potential home buyer or seller.”
“We have had such an amazing experience with Tesha Perry! She was so knowledgeable, professional and patient with us as we searched for our first home. We ended up with our dream home and it was because of her hard work. Thank you so much Tesha! If anyone is looking for a realtor, SHE IS THE ONE!”

“What can I say but Robin is one of the most sweetest, caring and beautiful women in the industry. Inside and out she shines with passion and determination!”
“I cannot say enough wonderful things about Robin and the Team! As a first time buyer, I was very nervous about the whole home buying process. From the first time I spoke with Robin on the phone, I could tell she was the right agent for us. (We had met with another person, from another company the day before.) After Robin's presentation, at our first face to face meeting with her, we were impressed. From there, the house tours, paperwork, contract negotiations, more paperwork... every step, we felt confident she had our best interest in mind. She's very knowledgeable and took the time to explain anything we weren't sure of. I'm so thankful to have Robin represent us through this process. She truly made it a pleasant experience! Thank you! We love our beautiful home!”
“Working with Robin Ray-Rutherford has been a sincere pleasure! Her investment in her clients is unmatched! As a newly relocated couple, we needed an area expert, and Robin delivered! Her knowledge of the market and process ensured a smooth negotiation and buying process! We couldn’t have worked with a better realtor! Now we consider her a friend! She is truly in the business of building great relationships and doing whatever it takes to meet client needs!”
“It was a pleasure to work with Robin, I would totally recommend her to my family and friends. :)”
