1. Get “Pre-Approved” – Not “Pre-Qualified” Do you want to get the best property you can for the least amount of money? Then make sure you are in the strongest negotiating position possible. Price is only one element in the negotiations, and not necessarily the most important one. Often other terms, such as the strength […]Read More...
Realty One Group
"Organized, efficient and hardworking." "Proactive and knowledgeable." "Caring, considerate and passionate about what she does."
Sound like someone you'd like to meet? This is Realtor® Teresa Karam at Realty ONE Group in Mission Viejo. She loves working in her home community of Orange County, and she is excited about helping her clients find the perfect home while building wealth through real estate.
This self-motivated young professional entered the work world at only 15 years old. Just a few years later, she was introduced to real estate, and she moved to Las Vegas, where she was mentored by a top broker who specialized in assisting investors. Teresa took her mentor's advice to heart and began investing in real estate herself. In a short time, she had built her own investment portfolio and was looking forward to a rewarding future.
Then, the market tumbled, and Teresa took a step back to reexamine her career path and approach to real estate investment. She returned to the industry in 2015 and joined forces with veteran OC Realtor® Michael Cambra, who reignited her passion for real estate and gave her the guidance to succeed in a fresh market. Michael's mentorship combined with Teresa's irrepressible energy and determination helped earn her the number five spot in her office last year. And she shows no signs of slowing. This year, she was recognized as a Five Star Agent by Orange Coast Magazine.
Teresa continues to work with Michael Cambra and Ivan Miletich as part of the NVision team, a company that has a long track record, expertise and an awesome reputation for adding value to real estate in need of upgrading/repairs; while also branding herself and building her own thriving book of business. She's been able to learn that aspect of the business from them. As well as being able to add value for my clients and to pass that knowledge to them to maximize their investment.
Teresa's direct and diligent approach to real estate results in transparency with her clients. "I go through the process with my clients before we ever get to the process, so they know what to expect one step at a time. I want to keep the stress for them as low as possible by taking charge. I tell them ahead of time what they will need to do, and what I am going to do for them. Just having a roadmap for the transaction reduces stress and gives them confidence that they are in good hands."
Persistence is another of Teresa's key attributes. She adopts her clients' goals and works tirelessly until they are achieved. She is available and responsive at all times, ensuring that she never misses an opportunity to follow through, and clients can always reach her with questions.
As a lifetime resident of Orange County, Teresa's knowledge of the area is unparalleled. She's familiar with all the housing tracts in Orange County, and without going to the MLS, she can tell you the average sales price and where there is inventory. Not to mention she has local knowledge of schools, tax rates and HOAs which is critical to giving good service . "I take pride in being a professional. If there is something I don't know, I'll do the research and find the answer, I learn something new with every transaction, and it's one of the things I love about real estate."
Teresa maintains a personal touch in her business, whether she is writing handwritten notes to prospects and clients, sending them referrals for their businesses, or staying in touch on Facebook. "I go see my clients after the sale, I love to see what they've done with their home since they bought it."
Real estate is the perfect career for this upbeat, outgoing young lady with a passion for creating millionaires. "I own property, so I practice what I preach. It's so exciting to help someone become a homeowner and build financial wealth through real estate. When I say I want to be you "Realtor® for Life", I mean it.
I'm doing what I love, and I'm here for the long run."
