Thank you for all of your support during the past 60 days. Your attentiveness to us as buyers felt much more like a good friend in addition to a constant professional. Your support allowed us to work our business and not think too much about the escrow and related tasks. My husband and I always feel you are representing our best interests. I look forward to an opportunity to recommend you to another seller or buyer!
I highly recommend Teryn if you desire a real estate agent that is simply the best! Her follow through and attention to detail is second to none! And, one of her true strengths is her understanding of social media and using the internet to reach the broadest audience. She is creative, punctual and extremely engaging and kept me updated on a daily basis. It’s quite apparent she loves what she does and she helped make the process of selling a property an enjoyable one. If you are looking for a wonderful real estate agent or know of someone that needs one, she’s the one!
I recently sold my home and purchased a condo here in Ventura County. I was amazed as to the paper work, forms, deadlines and the overall complexity of buying and selling had become. Looking back, my best decision was to enlist Teryn Bonime as my advisor. We talked almost every day and I grew confident in her suggestions and advice. After I purchased my condo, I suggested that her nickname should be …”The dream catcher”.
If you have not yet made a decision to hire a broker, I strongly suggest Teryn Bonime. And if you have already hired her, I applaud your very wise decision.
— Pat, a “very satisfied client”
Teryn is the most wonderful real estate agent ever! We have bought and sold houses several times while living on the east coast and not one of the agents we used came close to Teryn in every way. When we moved to the west coast Teryn helped us find the perfect place for us. She was always available to show us properties and answer any questions that we had. She is knowledgeable, conscientious, and meticulous when it comes to details. It was an absolute pleasure working with her.
— Sam and Jeannie
It was a pleasure working with Teryn. She was always enthusiastic and extremely patient. She also took the time to find the answers to my numerous first-time home buyer questions.
It was a number of years since I had purchased a home when I saw a house in the area I was interested in buying. Not wanting to miss this investment opportunity I immediately contacted Teryn to represent and guide me in the purchase process. She quickly set to work educating and taking me through the steps. Her attention to detail, organization and follow up made the process very easy. She provided solid recommendations and advice at a critical time as the economy was starting to head downward. She did a terrific job during an uncertain and unpredictable time. THANK YOU SO MUCH ! ! ! !
Teryn helped me to make my home buying & selling adventure a very positive memory. She worked tirelessly with me, and at the end of the day, it was her encouragement and optimism that helped me to continue my quest for the perfect home. Teryn’s upbeat attitude & professional approach guided me towards making informed decisions, and ultimately purchasing a wonderful new home.
I enjoyed working with Teryn so much, I will never wish to use another agent. So professional and thorough. Above and beyond what is required!
I flew into town and had only 2 ½ days to look for a house. Teryn planned out a “course of action” for us, and even with a short time frame, I never felt rushed, saw a full selection of homes and was able to find the absolute perfect house in the perfect area for my family. Though I was not in town, she followed through with inspection needs and I felt well protected with all that needed to take place in making sure I bought a secure home with no surprises when I moved in. I felt Teryn represented me amazingly and took care of me in every way.

I asked Teryn to be my realtor before I was really ready for one. She showed me many properties over the course of a year and in the mean time I readied my own home for sale. She had all the resource people that I needed ranging from a home stager to a sewer inspector. Teryn kept in contact with me on a daily basis by both telephone and e-mail. She sent me daily listings on properties that might be a good match and would meet me at a moments notice to show me a potential home. Finally, all the stars aligned and I found the perfect home just after my home had a buyer. As the stars aligned, however, the mortgage market fell into disarray and I felt like the sky was going to fall on me! But through all the stress, Teryn was my port in the storm. She stayed positive, kept all the balls in the air and kept me from the loony bin. Even on the day of closing, the market was extremely volatile and things could have gone either way but Teryn kept the entire process moving forward and I am happy to report a happy ending for all parties concerned. I have nothing but the deepest respect and appreciation for Teryn and her unwavering professionalism and positive attitude. I recommend her without the slightest hesitation.
Teryn helped us find our dream home. She has exceptional intuition and professionalism. On top of that it was just plain fun working with her. I recommend her without exception. Teryn listened adeptly and facilitated the whole process fairly efficiently. After many months of looking with no success, we found Teryn and she showed us the house we bought on the first day. Diana’s house sold for top dollar and we got our fantasy house. We’re exceptionally pleased.
— Lewis and Diana
Moving from the east coast, we had need of a realtor that understood our desires to find us exactly the right house in an unfamiliar land. We found that realtor in Teryn Bonime. She worked diligently on every aspect of the process, and didn’t give up until we had found our perfect home. Teryn was wonderful in every way.
— Sue and Fenner
During the past 20 years I have bought and sold eight primary residences in San Francisco, California, and Portland, Oregon; each time using a realtor for the transaction. Teryn Bonime is one of absolute best realtors I have ever worked with. She is honest, efficient and very hard working. Teryn’s best attribute may be her complete attention to details. Many of these are details that would usually be left to the buyer or seller. For example, before even thinking to ask, Teryn will have three roofing companies at the property in question, ready to inspect a potentially faulty roof for you. Or, she’ll stand ready with numerous contacts for her clients to use; from handymen, painters, and lenders, to sewer specialists, movers and even dog sitters! She thinks of everything, long before her overwhelmed-with-the-details clients will! I truly enjoyed working with Teryn and respect her for being so dedicated to her clients, as well as to her profession.
Teryn Bonime was very patient with us while searching for a home. She showed us homes that fit with what we wanted in a house. We always looked forward to spending a day with Teryn and we always had a good laugh with her.
— Danny and Sharon
Teryn was a pleasure to work with and always so patient, even after taking me to view at least 30 homes from one end of the Portland Metro to another – sometimes with my dog and 4-year old child in tow. As a first time home-buyer and new to the area, Teryn took time to understand my needs and calm my fears. She was thorough and organized and I’ll definitely seek her services when it’s time to sell and buy again.
Finding a home was a wonderful experience for my husband and me. We flew out to Portland from North Carolina to find a home in only a week. We were nervous and feeling stressed about not finding the right home, but Teryn spent the entire day guiding us through Portland with patience and great knowledge of the area. She took time away from all her other obligations to spend time with us making sure we found our perfect home. Great Realtor and wonderful person!
— Ladd and Donna
Teryn is dependable, smart, funny and kind. Teryn’s greatest strength (of many) was in pointing out the things we should notice (but might have overlooked) without being negative or getting things out of perspective.
