"Working with Rebecca was great. We got a cute place at an awesome price!!!!! She made the deal easy for us and we love our new vacation spot!!!!" --The Moore's
"About a year ago I requested the services of Rebecca to assist in selling my deceased mother's home left to my sisters and me in a trust fund. Rebecca had to step right in with her tact and diplomacy in getting everyone to agree to the listing terms. She later advised us in regarding a land dispute with a neighboring property owner. I thought she may feel daunted when one of my sisters had to be evicted from the property but she continued about her business and maintained a good relationship with all of us. I feel that Rebecca has contributed toward my sisters and me managing to get past all these issues and stay together in these trying times.
She stood by while I painted, decorated and updated the home. She would show up and take updated pictures one day and the next day I'd call and say, hey you should see the sunroom now...it's been totally redone. She'd head back up and take some more pictures. She took the time to explore the lake vicinity and what the area had to offer potential buyers. She has generated a lot of interest in the property and advised me on the offers I have received. Despite the hard market, I have never gotten the impression that she is giving up on this property or that she has lessened her drive to sell it. I still have not sold the property, but I wouldn't switch listing agents for the life of me." --Pam Bauer (property sold 11-21-08)
"Rebecca is very professional, knowledgeable, and truly helpful. We would use her again in a minute. We appreciate all her help in the finding of our cottage. Thanks Rebecca!"--Cliff and Alice Price
"Rebecca was a big help to us with purchasing our cottage, she helped us with everything we needed to make everything go smooth!"--The Trypus Family
"My husband and I had been doing some serious searching for almost two months in Clare County, primarily working with one real estate agent. We were looking for a summer/possible retirement location within a certain price range. We were beginning to get very frustrated with the process when I decided to go on the internet and do my own searching. I came up with several possibilities and called the REALTOR who had one listing that I was curious about. After learning what it was we were looking for, he advised me against that particular listing validating the reasons why. He talked about a couple of other places and asked me to send him the list I had come up with. Since we live out of town, we had to arrange to see places on weekends only. He was not available the next time we were able to come into Clare, but referred to us his daughter Rebecca Terpening. We couldn't believe the difference in working with her. Her professionalism, listening skills, and willingness to work hard to help us find what we were looking for in our price range, were just amazing. Rebecca does her homework, never gets pushy, doesn't tell you what she thinks you want to hear, but rather what you need to know in order to make informed decisions. She helped us find exactly what we were looking for and walked us through the process. Since we were dealing with a repossessed property, there was more paperwork and more things to consider and deal with than under normal circumstances. Sometimes there still was frustration, but her calmness, her knowledge, and her support helped us get to that happy day when we were handed the keys! We love the place we purchased and have already been building many wonderful memories there with our children and grandchildren. All we can say is, thank you Rebecca Terpening!!"--Laura & Rick Nestle
"Rebecca... 1) Took me to see a large number of properties on one of the hottest days in August 2006. I'm sure a day at the beach would have been much more pleasant. 2) Took up conversation to quell other Realtor's concerns for a 1031-C exchange involved w/ my purchase. 3) Took up conversation/e-mail exchanges w/ an unprofessional mortgage broker involved in my real estate transaction. 4) Furnished useful/helpful information about the newer area I was making an investment purchase in."--Bev Creswell
