After interviewing a few real estate agents for the sale of my first home, I selected Teresa MacDonald of RE/MAX South Shore Realty. Teresa admitted to being a junior real estate agent, but I would have never known that based on her presentation. Teresa was very knowledgeable about my property, and the history of the properties within my community. Choosing Teresa to sell my house was one of the best decisions that I have made as a home owner. Teresa exceeded all of my expectations as a realtor. She hired a professional photographer to take pictures of my house which resulted in multiple showings within hours of the property being listed. Teresa helped me navigate multiple offers, and was always there to give me sound advice. Teresa is excellent at communicating with her clients, and exceeded all of my expectations as far as keeping in touch with me and answering questions. If I have it my way, Teresa will represent me in any future real estate transactions and I will be recommending her to my family and friends.

Kim is a top-notch property manager.  It took me some time to find her, but she was worth the wait.  She’s very proactive in her approach to issues that arise.  She keeps my tenants and HOAs happy, keeps my properties in good shape and they are always rented thanks to her!  I rest easy knowing my properties are in the best of hands.

We have been working with Kim for six years. She has been the most diligent, resourceful, and dedicated person to take care for our property. She is extremely intelligent in the area and market. She will help find the best way to repair something with qualified repairs at minimal cost. She is a true delight to work with and care for our property.

My wife and I listed our home with Teresa after attempting to sell it with other realtors over the last couple years.  Immediately after meeting with Teresa it was evident that she was going to have our best interest at heart, and work diligently to sell our home.  Her efforts paid off and we had a solid contract very quickly.  We had experienced ‘other’ realtors who were enthusiastic until they had our listing, then their enthusiasm dropped off.  I highly recommend Teresa, a realtor with a great work ethic and integrity.

We were so fortunate to have found Teresa MacDonald with Re/Max South Shore Realty when we were searching for our Florida home. She was very patient with us and diligent in her search to find us the perfect home. While we could not be in the Florida area to do the “house-hunting” ourselves (living and working out of state at the time), she had to become our eyes and ears along with long conversations on where my husband needed to be located to have accessibility to the airport for travel and my idea of a home in a great neighborhood that could be turned into our (hopefully) last home to accommodate family and friends. She stayed focused on our key points of interest in the right home and not just trying to make a sale. She spent countless hours with us on the phone in the evenings going over pictures or videos that she sent for us to review and try to knock out what we absolutely couldn’t accept in a home or things that were a quick fix to change to our liking. She stayed ready to accompany the inspector when it came down to the final decision on a home and to take detailed notes to relay to us what she felt was pertinent information to consider when making the actual final decision. Teresa was always professional and courteous and either knew or got to know the areas very well that we were looking into. We felt she went well above and beyond the expectations of a real estate agent when she would drive thru a neighborhood that we were interested in to see what the traffic was like during the day,evening, and weekends as well as the access in and out of them. We never felt pressured to make an offer on a home and always were made to feel as though she was truly looking out for our best interest. She made the point of going to several homes that we had an interest in based on the pictures on line but in reality were not the right fit for us….until….that ONE came available. Once it was found Teresa took care of all the details with the seller’s realtor to complete all paperwork and inspections. We were never made to feel as though we were asking too many questions, and were always given thorough, detailed information on what we needed to handle from our end. Clear instructions on what was needed each step of the way as the process of purchasing the home took place. Teresa made sure to do a thorough walk-thru of the property for us and again, sent pictures letting us know all was well to receive the keys at closing. She was quick to mail all proper closing paperwork and the keys to our new home. We would highly recommend Teresa MacDonald to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!

In 2009 I took a new job that would relocate me to Texas forcing me to rent my townhouse. I was unable to sell it due to the severe drop in value during the housing crisis. I hired Kim Tarpley who assured me she would have a tenant the month after I moved out to keep from having me pay the mortgage without living there. Twice she was able to fill the vacancy left by tenants unwilling to fulfill the one year contract, saving me from having to pay the mortgage on a vacant townhouse. The last tenant she found stayed for four years. During those years, Kim did a wonderful job being the liaison between me, the tenant and HOA. Kim communicated any issues to me immediately that were reported to her by the tenant or HOA. She gave me prompt quotes for repairs and was always prepared for lease renewals. In 2016, I put the townhouse up for sale. Kim and my realtor worked very well together during the showings and transition of ownership. I can confidently say that Kim played a major role in preventing me from becoming a foreclosure statistic during the housing crisis. Thank you Kim for all your hard work and dedication throughout the seven years we worked together. United States Border Patrol Agent Laredo North Station Laredo, Texas

I was referred to Teresa by a friend who knew of my special needs as it relates to finding a forever home.  I had been searching for a home which was both wheelchair accessible and comfortable all at the same time for several months prior to meeting Teresa.  From the very beginning, she showed such care and concern to help me find the right forever home.  Teresa constantly goes above and beyond to make sure I have been comfortable throughout the purchasing process of my first home.  She really takes the time to get to know her clients and to make sure that all of their needs are met.  I am so thankful that I was given her information as I know my new home would not have been possible without her!
