Terel Beppu

    • Terel was referred to me and my husband by a financial adviser. When I met with Terel, I had already interviewed seven other realtors, many of whom were from discount brokerages. I was impressed with Terel and decided to work with him over the other agents. What made Terel stand out of the pack were his: Professionalism: Terel followed through on all my questions/concerns quickly. He kept me apprised of showing activity and interest in our listing very diligently, such that I never had to wonder where things stood. This was extremely important to me, as I did not have the time to babysit this process. Terel provided top-notch service. Well-rounded business acumen: Terel knows the current market. As a former tax professional he was also able to help me navigate some tax consequences of selling our property. Terel made me feel more confident about our decisions. Listening skill: Terel really knows how to listen. He was able to pick up on the smallest details and concerns that I had. I find this to be a rare quality, but Terel proved that he really listened to and understood me. Honesty: Terel was confident in his ability to sell my home in this slower market, but he also set realistic expectations about price and time on market. He did not shy away from my questions that required difficult answers. He always followed through with straight forward answers and thorough explanations. Enthusiasm: Terel is a happy, go-getter type of guy. He always showed up with a smile, something I sensed even over the phone and his emails. I felt like he enjoyed helping me. He made me feel as if I was his only client (and Im certain I wasnt). Terel made our sale easy and painless.We needed to fix up our property before we could list it. Once the repairs were complete, Terel quickly got the house inspected, photographed, and on the market. His marketing approach, which utilized a variety of resources in addition to MLS, resulted in an overwhelming response. We accepted an offer after only 9 days on the market. This is noteworthy, as the average listing in Santa Clara County during this time spent close to 70 days on the market! I was all the more impressed, given that our property, which was an investment property, was located in a less desirable location, and there were several listings within a couple blocks of our property that had been on the market for several months. My husband and I were out of the country during the close, which concerned me. However, Terel arranged to have us sign off before we left and handled all the details while we were in South America. We returned with money in our account, a neat transaction file, and in time for a nice celebration with Terel. I cannot think of a better way to do business, and I credit this to working with Terel. I never second-guessed our decision to work with him, and I would not hesitate to recommend Terel to anyone. He should be listed in the diamond certified business directory.

    • When we decided to sell our home of 40 years we contacted our friend, Gino Blefari. Gino is the CEO of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, so we knew hed be able to recommend a good agent. He highly recommended Terel Beppu. We found Terel easy to work with and very knowledgeable. He listened and understood our concerns, and he even laughed at our jokes! We followed his recommendations which led to increased property value. Terel walked us through each step of the process keeping us informed and on track. We were able to easily follow his timeline which resulted in the successful sale of our home. We would highly recommend Terel Beppu if you are looking for a GREAT Realtor.

    • My husband and I recently purchased a home in San Mateo. I was new to buying real estate, so I asked a trusted former colleague, Terel Beppu, to be our advisor. Terel was a pleasure to work with. He is knowledgeable, ethical, responsive (late night phone calls and emails) and always had our best interests in mind. He loves what he does, and it shows. He had great ideas about remodeling and home improvements and an extensive contractor referral network that we utilized frequently. Probably the best endorsement that I can give for Terel is a comment that my husband made to me repeatedly throughout our process, You know that normal real estate agents arent like this, right?

    • "I am writing this testimonial to thank Terel Beppu for helping me and my wife find our first home. Based on our great experience working with him, we would definitely recommend Terel's services to anyone who wants to buy or sell real estate.My wife and I met Terel at an open house he was holding for another client of his. He was very thorough in explaining details about the place. After listening to the requirements we were looking for in our first place, he offered to help find that home for us. Though we had never worked with him before and had no recommendations for him yet, we decided to go with him because of his professionalism, honesty and courtesy. Choosing to work with him just felt right, and we never regretted that decision.Terel took time to know me and my wife and our requirements for a home. He was very proactive in sending us details of any properties that matched our requirements. Terel was very thorough in finding out details of places we went to see ahead of time. He was always available to go to open houses or show closed properties and even schedule showings of occupied properties, sometimes on very short notice from us. Never once did we have any scheduling issues with him. He researched all properties we asked him to, and then provided his honest opinions on each propertyHe was very patient with us. Never once did we feel that he was rushing us or trying to get a quick sale done. We saw loads of homes before finding the right one for us. All throughout this process he provided his valuable advice, and guided us through the detailed process and steps involved in buying a house. He even introduced us to our mortgage brokers.When we finally found our home, he helped us go through the complete process - from putting an offer - to - inspections, appraisal - to - loan process - to closing the contract. The last part was not an easy one since we were dealing with a bank (it was a foreclosed property). Many unforeseen issues were raised, but he was very patient and diligent, and he helped us get through all of them. Terel is one of the primary reasons we are currently living in our Dream Home.One of Terels traits that I cannot emphasize enough is his honesty and total dedication to your interest and needs first. It is very hard to find those qualities these days. I have heard about a lot of real estate agents who would say anything to get the deal done quickly. Terel was never like that. He always put our needs and our best interest first. We can still remember him joking many times after getting out of places that did not match our needs - "We can do better than that!"Overall, we will recommend Terel to anyone who wants to buy or sell their home. He will make your search much easier. I think we not only found a great real estate agent in Terel but also a friend for life.Thanks again Terel!

    • I chose Terel to sell one of my rental properties in Santa Clara. We did a walk-thru together while the tenants were still living there in a very cluttered environment. Terel was able to quickly cut through the clutter and tell me exactly where to put my extremely limited renovation budget to get the property sold. I followed his advice and the property sold after the first open house for more than asking.From start to finish, Terel was excellent in the process. His knowledge, experience, professionalism and personality made the whole thing roll. I had confidence that things would go the way he projected. And they did! All of my needs and expectations were met, and I felt extremely satisfied with everything. I can honestly say that Terel Beppu is the real estate agent that I will be using in the future.

    • We used Terel as our realtor on two separate occasions. The first time, he assisted us in purchasing a home in San Jose on our return from living internationally. With two young children, we expected the experience to be stressful and difficult. It was actually smooth, well organized and exciting thanks to Terel's professionalism, attention to detail, and his commitment. Terel consistently goes above and beyond to ensure a positive experience for the whole family. The second time we used Terel was as wonderful as the first. On this occasion we were putting our house on the market as we were relocating out of state. Once again, you would expect this experience to be stressful and difficult. But not if Terel is your realtor! Terel exceeded all of our expectations again, ensuring every last detail was thought of. Beyond Terel's exceptional abilities as a realtor, he is a wonderful person, and we feel very fortunate to call him a friend. We strongly encourage you calling Terel for any of your real estate needs! He is the best!

    • When my fiance and I began our search for our first home, we were having a tough time choosing a realtor because my fiance is very picky and only wants to work with people of quality that come highly recommended. After a few months of searching, Terel was recommended to us by a family friend. When I finally gave him a call, he told us that he'd be in the area for another meeting and that he could meet us at our rental that night for a first meeting. We instantly clicked and knew that we found our realtor. Over the next few months Terel was always super helpful and gave us great advice as we looked at house after house that weren't quite right for us. When we finally found OUR house Terel worked quickly to ensure that we got our offer in the same night and we had our offer accepted by the next morning! During closing, Terel had a previous engagement across the country, but he was always available and working with us and the sellers to get the closing done efficiently as possible. Through the entire process it felt as if we were his only clients (though I know he's super busy!) because he gave us so much attention and care. I can't say enough good things about him!

    • We just purchased our first home in California, and if you live in California, you understand that the market is considerably different than just about anywhere else in the country. It is imperative that you work with a real estate agent than not only knows the area, but is knowledgeable in the art or negotiation! Terel Beppu was our "ace in the hole. He was patient, responsive, personable and honest. He gave candid and insightful feedback on properties, pointing out the pros, but more importantly the cons. He saw things we would have missed, he asked the questions we didn't know to ask and he knew where to look for the "gotchas. Thank you, Terel, for helping us find our second home!

    • I figure that two things would matter to anyone reading a review who is looking for a Real Estate Agent...1) Would the reviewer use the agent again?2) Would the reviewer recommend the agent to friends and family?For both questions, this reviewer emphatically says yes.Terel was recommended to me by a close friend as I joined the market looking to buy my first house. We arranged a meeting, and I made it clear that I was looking for a rather intensive search and that I'd ask a lot of questions. He was able to reassure me that he was the man for the job and boy was he ever. The consummate professional, Terel was able to aggressively steer me in the right direction and provided constant feedback on the houses I was looking at. I didn't know the system, he did. I didn't know appropriate bid amounts, he did. I didn't know what details to look for, he did. I didn't understand the tax implications, he did. I didn't know how to comp a house's value, he did. I didn't know how to handle a poor listing agent, he did. I had questions nearly every day of our search, and Terel had answers for me. He utilized other trusted agents and coordinators to provide quicker service and information than other home buyers could get from their agents. Terel never failed to advise me against a house if he felt it wasn't what I was looking for or the price was wrong. These advantages led me to the right house and the right price in a market where houses were flying off the market at $100,000 over asking. Half a year after my purchase, I'm thrilled with the experience and my home. Since my purchase, I have actively promoted Terel's services to a number of friends looking to buy homes. I told them that if you want an effective man of integrity, Terel Beppu is the agent for you. When you are spending the type of money that a house costs in the Bay Area, and you aren't a pro yourself, you simply have to rely on someone else, and trust is the key component. I trusted Terel, and he delivered as an agent and friend.

    • Terel Beppu was referred to me by a friend who had done business with him. She described him as knowledgeable, professional, and most importantly trustworthy. When I met with Terel it was clear my friend had described him accurately. I engaged his services to help me with a complex real estate transaction from my deceased husband. He was professional, honest and trustworthy. He is an excellent communicator and problem solver. He can effectively resolve conflict while being very diplomatic. He can work with difficult situations and personalities. I strongly recommend Terel, and I would do business with him again. I would recommend him to other family members and friends.

      - —Maria Meneses
    • Let me first say that Terel Beppu is an outstanding real estate professional in every way and a real asset to his clients and his company. Thats the big picture. Heres the detail:When I contacted Terel to discuss the possibility of selling my home, he made me feel confident that I was dealing with a seasoned professional. Within a very short time he presented a very comprehensive analysis of the property and a realistic, well researched pricing analysis. My wife and I were impressed with Terels attention to detail and very personal style. His knowledge of the real estate market and profession was outstanding.Within a week from our first visit Terel listed the property on MLS complete with a very professional photo shoot and held a very successful open house. A week later we had a contract and about four weeks after that we closed with a highly qualified buyer with absolutely no issues. All along the way Terel quickly solved every item that popped up, communicated with me virtually every day and got us through the process with no surprises.Terels attributes include a highly personal communicative style, attention to detail, outstanding project planning capabilities all wrapped up in a positive, can-do attitude. I unconditionally recommend Terel.

    • When we met Terel at an open house last year, we found him to be polite, personable and well-spoken, but were a bit wary of working with someone who had only been in the real estate business for about five years. However, after unsatisfactory experiences working with two seasoned realtors, we decided give him a try. We have never really trusted the testimonials posted by most realtors. However, all of the praise in Terel's other testimonials is true. He is extremely knowledgeable about real estate and professional during all interactions. In addition, he is a pleasure to work with. He is proactive yet not pushy and always friendly. As first-time buyers in California, we needed someone who was able to guide us through the process. He was very patient when answering all our questions and did so promptly and clearly. His services after the sale have been as great as the services provided during our search and closing. He has happily shared his experience in renovating his own home and provided valuable advice and information to help us find contractors, vendors and materials. By working with Terel, we feel that we not only found a great realtor, but also made a good friend whom we can call anytime for advice about anything related to real estate. We would recommend Terel to our friends without reservations.

    • I have known Terel from Deloitte and eBay where I worked at as his co-worker. And of-course his reputation at both companies was fabulous due to his professionalism as well as his personality. But when he told me that he resigned from eBay to become a realtor, I said "OMG, he will be the best realtor based on his background as a CPA, his personality, etc... I knew he has helped many of his friends from Deloitte and eBay to buy and/or sell their home, and they were very happy to have Terel as their friends as well as a realtor.When we decided to move to another state from CA, we did not think for a second of choosing any other realtor than Terel to sell our house. Terel helped us to sell our home in Campbell CA in the last 1.5 month. In this economy, we received multiple offers after only one open house and we were able to close the sale within one and a half months since the first open house. His strategy worked!! Also in the last few years, Terel has referred several contractors to fix or remodel our home. All contractors who were referred by Terel were so great! All of our remodeling work was done timely (no delay of even one week) and within the budgets. All of them told us that they love to work with Terel as he is very honest, he put his customers first, and he is willing help everyone.... We realized that we got all great contractors because Terel has been very selective in choosing only the best contractors for his customers. And it tells us a lot that those GREAT contractors love to work with Terel.We can definitely recommend Terel to all our friends and anyone else who are looking for the best realtor!!

    • Terel helped me with the sale of my residence at 715 Alameda de las Pulgas. His knowledge, organization, and negotiation skills made him delightful to work with. He was a professional from beginning to end. We ended up receiving 6 offers, all of which were over our list price. We discussed doing a multiple counter offer, as he referred to it, to a few of the highest bidders to see who might be willing to increase their bid. Instead, Terel asked me to trust him with an idea he had. Then, right there in front of me with the phone on speaker, he called the agent who had submitted the highest offer (and which also had the best terms) and explained that we were planning to send a counter offer to several parties, her clients included. He then gave them an opportunity to raise their offer proactively to a number he and I had discussed, and just like that, they increased their offer by $20,000! I almost blurted something out in my excitement but recalled that we were on speaker phone! We didnt have to counter everyone else (these were the folks we wanted to work with anyway). It still amazes me that with one phone call that lasted all of 5 minutes, Terel got me another $20,000. He earned his compensation right then and there. I felt this was risky, as they were our highest bidder, and I was afraid they might walk away. Nonetheless, I learned that Terels intuition and ability to read folks was spot on. I used to believe a realtor is a realtor; any one will do. Not anymore! Ill never use anyone but Terel again and will gladly refer my family and friends to him.

    • Terel has an uncanny ability to orchestrate the varied elements of complex real estate transactions in a seamless manner. I've had the pleasure of working with Terel, as he recently sold three of my properties. Each transaction had its own unique attributes, yet with each contract Terel exceeded my sales & timing expectations. In order to succeed in real estate you need to have a go to team that will mirror your razor sharp focus on client goals, strong enthusiasm & practical knowledge applied to every moving part - all framed by extreme professionalism. Terel led his team and demonstrated it to me repeatedly ~ as we prepared the homes for sale, negotiated with other Realtors & Buyers and closed out contracts in fine fashion.Terel Beppu has crafted real estate sales into an art form. I'm anticipating we'll be collaborating on many deals to come.

    • This is the first time in my Yelp experience when 5 stars just aren't enough! My husband and I found Terel (funnily enough) through Yelp. I interviewed a couple of agents over the phone and just had a "good" feeling about Terel. It suffices to say that I truly believe you will not find a better real estate agent out there. Not now, not ever. Yes he's experienced, he's knowledgeable, he's efficient, he's responsive, he's honest and so very responsible. But most importantly, throughout the home-buying and selling experiences (and yes we did both with Terel), we have never doubted that Terel was on OUR team, fighting for us on the real estate battlefield. That is an amazing feeling to have when you have to trust this complete stranger to handle something as important as house-buying/selling, and we trusted Terel COMPLETELY. He kept us in the loop about everything, he was honest about everything and he always put our needs first. I wish we had a "Terel" for everything we needed, he's THAT good. If he was a tax-guy or something we needed on a regular basis I wouldn't even share him on Yelp, but we don't plan on moving anytime soon :). If you're looking for the best real estate agent there is, you've found him. And I don't say this lightly. I have already raved about him to friends. Get in touch with him now before he becomes the Oprah Winfrey of the real estate world!

    • So before I took the time to write about our amazing experience with Terel, I took a look at what others had written. My first thought is WOW...I was actually sharing Terel with other clients? My second thought was how lucky we are to be a part of Terel's real estate legacy. I know that my husband, Justin, and I are not alone in our thoughts about Terel. This man is the definition of what you want a Real Estate Agent to be. He is nice, funny, smart, honest, and he gives you a comfort vibe that he is doing everything he can to make the process smooth. I feel that in our experiences with everyone in this industry, Terel is the one person that outshined them all. If you are looking for an honest and friendly person to help you navigate thru the crazy Silicon Valley real estate world, then he is the person to call. Its literally crazy to think that he can provide this level of service to multiple clients at a time...but HE DOES and much more. We are now about to move into our new home and when we think of Terel, he is more than our agent, his is now our Friend.

    • Terel represented me on the purchase of a new home in Palo Alto as well as selling our home in Los Altos. He took charge and ownership of the process from start to finish, and we were 100% satisfied with his perfect balance of advising with experience and partnering with my wife and I on decisions that were ultimately ours to make. His support team were all very professional and highly responsive in getting everything done on a timeline that was aggressive. Terel understands that reputation is everything which is clear in his actions. You wont regret hiring Terel.

    • In August of this year, my family found out that we would be moving to SoCal after living in NorCal for so many years. I've known Terel, as a friend, for many years. When it came time to sell our home in West Menlo Park, I didn't think twice about having Terel represent us, knowing that he was the best of the best. Already having high expectations, Terel went beyond the call of duty. Anything we needed was met with immediate attention. Our home sold EXTREMELY quickly thanks to Terel's professionalism and talent. He made an AMAZING video showcasing our home, that I continue to watch even to this day because I was so impressed. I would wholeheartedly recommend Terel to ANYONE who is interested in buying or selling a home. You will NOT be disappointed! You're the best Terel!!!

    • I had two great experiences with Terel. He helped buy a house in San Jose in 2010 and sell our place in 2018. From beginning to end both times, Terel and his entire team were excellent to work with. Professional, skilled, knowledgeable, responsive, patient, and effective. Terel guided us through the entire process, including planning, renovation and management, staging, open house, and an amazing result! I highly recommend Terel and his team!

      - —Junko Masuda
    • "Highly recommended given his professionalism, competence, and integrity. Much appreciated Terel's responsiveness, ongoing communication and attention to detail. Clearly enjoys and fosters positive relationships with clients and colleagues. Provided expert guidance regarding appropriate upgrades to property to increase value and improve ROI. Provided referrals to a network of experienced contractors. Effectively managed contractors, and sales process end-to-end. Maintained a "can do" attitude throughout. Strong negotiating skills contributed to above-market sales price."

    • "Terel has been our agent since our first home purchase in 2008, which he recently helped us sell. Working with Terel was yet again a wonderful experience as his advice was always spot on. Terel responded to all of our questionsbig and smallwith great care and made our experience so much more enjoyable. We were able to make over our house to sell and close the escrow within 2 months. Terel was right by our side during the entire process and we couldnt be happier with the entire experience. An agent like Terel, with the highest level of professionalism and client care, is hard to come by and he comes highly recommended!"

    • "After interviewing many potential realtors, we selected Terel to represent us in the sale of our home of 21 years. Terel immediately stood out from the others because of his energy and enthusiasm. We had several interesting challenges come up on the buyer side during our sales process and Terel (even at one point while on vacation) sprung into action and ensured the problems got resolved and that the sales process came to a very satisfactory conclusion. Thank you, Terel! We highly recommend Terel and in fact have already done so with friends and neighbors."

      - –Mike & Janet McAllister
    • "Terel Beppu is just the best! Terel came highly recommended from a friend, and after the initial conversation he has since helped me with two projects (a purchase in Nov16 and a sale in Sep18), and I would not hesitate to call on him again for any future real estate needs. I found Terel to be the consummate professionalknowledgeable in his domain, attentive and responsive to my requests/questions, and his pleasant and caring manner made the whole process easy. I very much appreciated his easy-going manner when my work and life got busy, and he would work around that always."
