    • I was a lessee on a property being sold and had a lease until Sept. 2015 which I didn't want to move. She provided many different options and was able to negotiate with seller to buy me out on my lease with a generous amount as her seller was in a dire need to sell. She was also able to send me emails from MLS to find a rental property and was willing to waive her commission from rental to accommodate my family. She basically made a complex situation look so simple with my work, family, and living situation. I have kept her contact information and have let her know that if anyone is interested in selling or buying I would not hesitate to recommend her.

    • It was a pleasure working with Teresa. She made the experience in selling our first home easy and painless. We were in an unfortunate situation where we had to deal with tenants still living in the house. She took care of everything and helped us all to an agreement. Everyone walked away satisfied.

    • Teresa has been a fixture in our neighborhood for many years. I would not have made any other choice than to have her at my side during the process of selling this home. Teresa goes above and beyond with her expert knowledge, her compassion and her concern for the client. From the very begining Teresa went beyond any realtor that I have ever heard about, starting with a sound strategy for the preparation of the home for veiwing including staging a estate sale and the final closing. I will recommend her to anyone that is either looking to sell or buy a home. She has made a lasting friend

    • I got recommended to Teresa by my brother which she help him buy a home so I had the pleasure to work with her on finding a home for me and my family. Even though I was a simple first time home buyer, I would consider myself a demanding person w/ a lot of needs for the right place. I was impress with her professionalism and dedication in finding our dream home. Teresa is really an easy going person and will go above and beyond to satisfied you with your needs and she is available for you 24/7.... I cant thank her enough for giving her honest opinion on what she thought was best for us. I would highly recommend her if you are in Orange County and looking for a listing agent.

    • Teresa was the best thing that could have happened to our family. Our family was struggling with our first home payments and had tried modifications and short sale options with other real estate agents and even a lawyer and found ourselves being robbed and falling deeper into a hole. Teresa came knocking at our door one day and was genuinely interested in answering our questions and helping us understand our options. I knew right away we had to have her on our side. It was the best decision we could have made. She helped our family sell our home and kept us from falling into a foreclosure. We are truly thankful to her. Because of her efforts our family is finally financially secure. I hope to use her services again when we are ready to venture into our permanent home

    • Hardest working person I know. She worked with me during a tough time in my life. Teresa helped me in a thousand ways where others would have abandoned me. Teresa Knoll is an honest, kind hearted, and generous woman of very high integrity. During our conversations, she always stayed on track with the objective to sell my home.

    • My husband and I started working with Teresa after a failed attempted with other another realtor. Wow!!! She impressed us. Teresa and her team worked so hard to find us what we wanted in our budget. Every time we had a question she always there to answer them and never acted like we were a bother (which we probably were) . We would not hesitate to use Teresa again in the future if we ever decide to move. Thank you Tersesa!!!!zue

    • I want to take a few minutes to express how happy I came out dealing with Teresa. She was patient with me showing me place to place city to city and with traffic in the OC she made it to every property I was interested in. Her honesty was at most important to her which is very important for us

    • Teresa was great! Very easy to work with and communicated often during the sale of my mother's home. She went above and beyond in seeing things through, including helping us remove old appliances from the house, driving to me with paperwork to sign. She was very efficient and I would highly recommend her!

    • I first met Teresa Knoll at a open house she was hosting. She was very friendly and sweet but for me what made me want Teresa as my Realtor was her honesty and how genuine she was. We asked about her local listing and she told us she does not recommend any of them since we have 2 girls those locations were not for families with growing children. I was shocked that a realtor would say that about her own listing. Teresa was eager for our dream to come true and she wanted us to have our house ASAP. Teresa would not hesitant when we asked to see a house. She would go knock on the owners house if she could not get in contact with the sellers agent. Teresa was willing to see any house we wanted to see and at the moment we wanted to see it. We actually were with another realtor when I first contacted Teresa. Even though I had another realtor she still gave me advice and ran comps for me. After our first realtor showed very little interest and we were doing all the work we decided to go with Teresa Knoll. Her first impression was always on my mind and we should have gone with her since the beginning. Fate made us connect again and she got us a beautiful home for my family. Teresa is fast, Honest and extremely knowledgeable and determined to work for you!! Thank you Teresa!

    • i asked Teresa to advise a family friend that was facing foreclosure. They had lived in their home for 37 years, raised a family there and now were facing the consequences of an adjustable rate loan. I knew that in the height of the market in 2005 a loan officer came to their home at 9;45 pm and gave then a bad loan and they knew they had made a mistake, She was so patient with them and advised them of their options. She was the best, always helping them try to come to a remedy with the bank. I realized she isnt in real estate to just "make money" she wants to help people. She may help people buy homes and sell homes but helping them save a home.... wow! She has a heart of gold! Teresa I will continue to refer you because I trust you to always do the right thing.

      - Trish
    • Teresa helped us sell our home for exactly how much we wanted and assisted us in finding our new home all within a span of 2 months! She's an amazing person that never stops working. She will go above and beyond for you and is always available when you need her.Teresa was a pleasure to work with and we would definitely use her again.

    • I feel truly blessed to of had Teresa Knoll as my Real Estate Agent. She went above and beyond her duty as a Real Estate Agent. I live in Colorado and the property I had for sale was in California. Teresa always kept in close contact with me and she also communicated with the tenants that were renting the property. I was so impressed how Teresa always kept me up to date on any information I needed to know. She is the most knowledgeable and kindness Real Estate agent I have ever me. I look forward to working with Teresa again.

    • Teresa is an excellent agent...within 3 weeks of signing the contract with her our house was in escrow. She was very professional and aggressive in selling our house. I would definitely recommend her to anyone wanting to sell or buy a house. She was more helpful to the buyer of our house than the buyers agent itself. Teresa went beyond the call of duty to make sure that the whole transaction went as smooth as possbile for us....and for that we are very grateful, it was such a pleasure to work with her.

    • Early last year we decided to move back to Hawaii. Meanwhile, at least 4 local realtors (in Costa Mesa) kept sending us all kinds of flyers trying to sell their services to us for over 5 years. Then 1 day a realtor came to our door introducing herself from 1st Team. We never heard of your office. Then 1 week later this realtor, Teresa Knoll, came back again. Somehow, she seemed sincere , gracious & yet assertive. We liked her and decided to retain her services, much to the surprise of our neighbors. The real estate market was "soft" but Teresa stood steadfast and finally helped us sell the house. It wasn't as much as we wanted but it was much better than what our neighborhood was going for. She was thorough in closing our deal. While we were having our year 2010 tax return done, we were missing some important info' regarding our real estate finances...as a last resort, I contacted Teresa and she came thru for us immediately. We can't thank her enough for her help - expertise & integrity. We know that you must know what a "gem" Teresa is...we wanted to express and share our appreciation, and will recommend to all our friends as well.

    • Teresa was our agent on the purchase of our first home. She is very knowledgeable, helpful and responsive. She must sleep with her phone 24/7 because she never misses a call and always makes herself available to answer questions and tour homes. I would highly recommend her services if you are searching for an agent who actually has your best interest in mind.

      - H Chau
    • Teresa was my agent when I bought my house and she was great! She showed me at least 20-30 homes before I bought my house and she has shown me numerous others ones since because I am interested in finding a 2nd one. I have dealt with numerous other agents before and none of them compare to her. She is always working, day or night. Whenever I call her she almost always picks up even just to say that she can't talk now and will call back. And she always calls back. If you want an agent that will work hard for you and has your best interest at heart I highly recommend Teresa

    • I have known Teresa for a long time now, 12 years to be exact. I have had one sale with her of our previous home and I cannot say enough about how good she is at her job. It is amazing the amount of knowledge she has gained with each passing day and in today's real estate market, we need more people like her. She cares about her job and more importantly she cares about the people she works for. She is every home buyer/seller's Dream Realtor!To add, she has helped us buy our new home too. In today's market you really have to be sharp. Teresa is that and more. She has covered all aspects and made our home buying smooth sailing! Thank you Teresa!

    • Teresa Knoll went ABOVE AND BEYOND for me! Words cannot express how grateful I am that I met her and that she handled the sale of my home. She was always energetic, focused, professional, competent, friendly, conscientious and extremely hard-working! Being the humble yet powerful woman that she is, she would not like it if I shared everything about what she did to help me on a personal level - we will keep that between her and I. But I will say that the way she extended herself and got involved in my personal situation, brought me great comfort in a very difficult time of transition. If anyone is looking for an amazing realtor and human being, call Teresa Knoll!!!! :)
