    Kai gave Theresa 5 stars out of 5
    Theresa from the first time we spoke has extended herself in every way. The home buying process started out with first looking for a home in Raleigh that would accommodate my extended family, but proved to be challenging. Theresa did not stop looking. You know, during the process she became more knowledgeable in a way that best suited us which was to rent to own. I thought that was so amazing, I know she educated herself, but it fell in line with my family's situation. When that again proved challenging Theresa again with her vast knowledge and connections was able to put us contact with the right lender, inspector, and the right home. Hands down she is the best. No call or text was left unanswered. I was foremost and priority. Did I mention that this all happened while I was out of state? Theresa goes international. She finds a way. I can't say enough. I can't thank her enough. Right to the very end she was right there at closing asking the pertinent questions. Thank you, Theresa.

    Theresa was great at keeping me updated with potential homes, my offers, and eventually my new home! She ensured I received everything I was promised before closing and was available whenever I had a question and offered her advice based on her experience. I definitely plan on reaching out to Theresa for my future real estate needs!

    Mrs. Theresa came into my life at a time when I was loosing hope in the housing market. In the beginning of my journey I was hopeful but after putting in offers and loosing several homes, I began doubting if going forward would be an option for my family and myself. After a very long prayer I decided maybe it was time to find another realtor. It was at this point that I was blessed to be put in contact with Mrs. Theresa. After our first phone conversation she made me feel like my family was her priority. She was able to look at listings and get us into the properties in such a rapid rate. We viewed several listings and even lost out on a few after placing offers, but the difference this time around is that she never allowed me to give up! Everything that I thought were to be a problem she was able to successfully negotiate in our favor. Her tact response and attention to detail allowed me to be very receptive to her advise. Mrs. Theresa has since gotten us under contract and successfully closed on a property in such a short time frame in this tumultuous market. I can attest that it can be done especially if she is by your side.

    Theresa was great! She took care of everything making the process easy especially considering I was 4 time zones away and frequently without access to phone or internet frequently through the selling process. So great to be able to have her take care of such a major event

    Theresa Bernier has been a truly exceptional realtor to work with. She dedicated her expertise and was committed to making sure my family had the best of her services as she walked the road with us as we embarked on our first home buying experience. She was completely open to ensure our understanding of the process before us. All details were laid before us as we proceeded through this process and she was always ready to answer our calls and kept us informed and up to date on a regular basis. She's a hard worker and knows her craft exceedingly well. Such a warm hearted and pleasant personality. You cannot go wrong when God places His angels in your path. Thank you Theresa for all of your help. We made a new friend in you. Lots of love and stay blessed. The Maxwell family.

    Theresa alleviated so much of our stress when it came time for a cross country move. We didn't know much about the area we would be moving to, but after meeting Theresa and spending the day looking at homes together we realized we were in great hands as she was extremely knowledgable and trustworthy as well. We loved our time w/ her and are so grateful for all of her help in the home buying process.

    Theresa was the best thing that happened to us when looking for a house to buy in the Raleigh/Durham area. She combined the non-stop work toward finding our house, with a personal relationship that made us feel like we were a part of her family. Theresa went to bat for us with every real estate agent and/or builder whom we encountered and was very professional at all times. We will miss the home search with her, and will be recommending her to our parents who'd like to follow us to this up and coming location!

    Theresa was truly a God send! She replaced an agent from another company and the difference was night and day. Theresa was attentive, proactive, and reliable. Every agent should be like Theresa.

    Theresa Bernier is a wonderful realtor. She always had Greg and my best interest at heart. She advised us on decisions but let us make them. Her knowledge and guidance made our experience easy. We had 14 showings the first week with 3 offers. Theresa was always there when we had questions and kept us updated during every step. We highly recommend this sweet professional lady if you want to sell a home. She's great.

    Theresa was a wonderful resource for is as we embarked on our first home journey. She was dedicated to showing us homes and making sure we were informed at every step of the way. When we found The One, Theresa was incredibly helpful, walking us through every step, arranging reliable vendors, and making sure we were doing everything necessary to move quickly and close on our home. She was caring and wonderful to work with.

    We didn't realize what a good real estate agent was till we had Theresa! She was excellent. Always available and courteous. She made sure that we found the house we really want. Once we found our house, she negotiated to get us everything we needed and more. She goes the extra mile to work with everyone from her clients, listing agent, to the attorney. I would definitely recommend her to anyone in the buyer's market.

    James gave Theresa 5 stars out of 5
    Theresa was amazing! She was our agent for the purchase of our new house in a new development, and the sale of our former house. She was with us while searching for our "forever home" and was available whenever we had questions or just wanted to talk. Her opinions and thoughts on what to look for in a new home and how to help sell our former home were always helpful and on point! On both the sale and purchase, but especially the purchase, she fought for us made sure that we got the best deal possible (credits, incentives, etc.). She was there with the walkthrough of the new home and spotted things we didn't and then made sure that all items were addressed. Some people go without an agent and I do not understand why they would. We are absolutely thankful that we had Theresa by our side through both processes. We were definitely better off for having her as our agent. We recommend her highly and without any hesitation!

    My husband and I relocated to North Carolina from California. Finding Theresa was a blessing as she was incredibly responsive to our cross-country house hunting needs. She communicated with us daily and scouted potential homes for us anytime we asked her to. When we would come to the area to see listings, Theresa would make herself available to take us to as many homes as we wanted to see and always made us feel so comfortable with her warm, caring personality. She truly was dedicated to finding us the home that we felt was perfect for us. We appreciate Theresa's efforts so much as we did find the perfect home for us and with her excellent and professional negotiating skills, were able to purchase it. She has a wonderful spirit and her attitude is very positive. My husband and I are so grateful to have found a truly exceptional, honest, and dedicated real estate agent in Theresa Bernier.

    Working with Theresa has been a great experience for me! Being a first time home buyer, Theresa took the time to explain the process to me and answered any questions I had, no matter how many. I never had to worry about anything. She is very knowledgeable about real estate and a great communicator. Theresa is not only a great Realtor, but has become a great friend!

    We have all heard the adage Location, Location, Location in the world of real estate, and that is always true, but my family has also found Communication, Communication, Communication is what really makes a home buying experience the best it can be. And that is exactly what we encountered when Theresa Bernier first answered her phone to take my call. As a real estate agent myself in Virginia, I was looking for that perfect agent to help my son buy his first home in North Carolina. We couldn't be more pleased. Theresa knew I was nervous about my son buying his first home so young and she took the best of care of him. She walked him through each step while keeping me totally informed along the way. Theresa is both professional and caring. She was constantly looking out for my son's best interests. I feel we not only found a great NC agent, but also a friend. :) Thanks Theresa!!!!

    Theresa is beyond outstanding! As a first time homeowner, I expected the process to be overwhelming, but it wasnÂ’t. That is because of Theresa. She took control of the entire process and answered every question my husband and I had with confidence. She also made herself available when we needed her. She is very responsive, professional and straightforward. Plus her negotiation skills are very impressive! We got exactly what we wanted for our home. Exactly! Theresa is a five star...no, TEN STAR Realtor. I can see why everyone wants to work with her. Thank you Theresa, you made us Happy Homeowners :-)

    Theresa worked hard for us thru the entire process. After showing us various houses we decided on a new construction home. She kept up with the building schedule and reacted quickly when issues arose. She visited the homesite multiple times even though it was extremely far from her office. She was always very responsive to our questions and made it very easy working with the builders. She was a valuable source of information as we were relocating from Florida and new to the area.

    Ms. Bernier is truly outstanding. I was impressed with her extensive knowledge of the area and her negotiating skills, in particular. She is the kind of agent any buyer, new or not, would need, as she is highly knowledgeable, trustworthy and is never too busy to explain the process and offer ideas. She was untiring in helping me locate the home I needed and was relentless in negotiating the best price. I would rate her in the top tier of agents I have known over the years. Ms. Bernier is first-rate indeed!

    Dreaming of life on a golf course?

    There was a time when real estate agents could confidently tell their clients that one of the biggest advantages of owning a home on a golf course is that the verdant view would be permanent.Today, many owners face a view of brown, dead fairways, vandalized buildings and uncertainty about what may pop up when the land is sold.Chalk it up to the busyness of Americans. The lengthy game of golf has declined in popularity, leaving course owners to deal with the consequences.Or, blame the oversupply ...

    3 Things about buying a new-construction home

    Will this be the year you buy a brand-new home? Don't be discouraged by news reports claiming that "U.S. home building fell," or "housing starts dropped."The scary-sounding numbers are due to a drop in multi-family home building, not single-family.In fact, the single-family home construction market across the country is set to be just fine, with a surge in new building permits late this summer.Moving into a newly-built home is a lot like the first time you sit behind the wheel of a new car, but ...

    Kick stink bugs out of the house, naturally

    If you haven't met your fair share of stink bugs this year, brace yourself. Although stink bug season is officially from March through September, the cooler it gets outdoors, the bigger the problem.Brown marmorated stink bugs infest both the interior of homes and the garden. In the garden, they feed on fruit and vegetable crops, causing spots and decay.They prefer to overwinter indoors, in homes. While they aren't considered harmful to humans or to the home, they create lots of noise and, if bot...
