College Station and Bryan Texas Real Estate At It's Best
Working with buyers and sellers is a privilege, and not one that I will abuse. Negotiating the best price and terms for my clients is my number one priority along with keeping them informed every step of the way. When working with a buyer I keep an eye on the market to find any new listings that fit their needs. When they find a home they are interested in I check all public records and utility information to ensure that we have all available information about the house. When entering into negotiations I know everything I need to know about the property to ensure the maximum benefit to my client. With sellers I keep them in the loop regarding new listings in the area and condition of their competition. I advise them on the best way to maximize their home's resale value and go to bat for them at the negotiation table entering into the negotiation with knowledge and confidence.
For buying your home I offer free personalized consulting for first time homebuyers, relocation consulting, and a tour of the town. I offer my pledge that I will do the best job possible finding the right area, the right home and the right price for you. I will obtain all available data on the property so that we enter the negotiation phase from a position of power. I will keep in contact with you during not only the negotiation phase, but the escrow phase so that you know what's going on with your property.
For selling your home I offer free Comparative Market Analysis's and will sit down with you after walking through your home and show you not only what's been happening with the market, but what your current competition is. I will preview other homes in your neighborhood to ensure that I have the knowledge necessary to determine how strong our selling price is. I will market your home the best way possible, using both traditonal and non-traditional (ActiveRain, blogs, Craigs List, etc...) marketing. I will keep you informed in the process as well as helping you stage your home to maximize your profit from the sale.
Whether you are buying a home, or selling it pays to choose your agent wisely! Over 200 transactions in the B/CS market has fine honed my skills and knowledge. I want to be your Realtor for life! Many of my clients become friends as well and I treat them all like family!
In addition to being a full time agent I am the mother of three wonderful children, a wife to a wonderful husband and a member and leader in several community groups. Leading Women Express Network is a offshoot of ABWA and is a networking group. I have maintained a VP position in the group for the last three years, though this year I am simply a VP elect (in training). I am also a member of ABWA and am working on our Style Show, one of the more important components to our annual Symposium. Toastmasters has been a constant for me for five years now as well. I am active on our College Station PTO and love lending a hand!
College Station Texas and Bryan Texas real estate services
Bryan/College Station is a vibrant community in the center of Texas. Equidistant from Houston and Austin, we are only about 1.5 hours away from either. Bryan is around 3 hours from Dallas as well! Most everything here focuses on Texas A&M University and Blinn College. Texas A&M is one of the leading research campuses on genetic engineering. Known for genetics, engineering and agricultural and mechanical pursuites, A&M is a beautiful campus! Our population between the two cities is around 120,000, we have, however, 50,000 students attending A&M and another 10,000 students attending Blinn. Our community enjoys theatre, orchestra and other pursuits just like our larger surrounding cities, but without the traffic congestion!
Our area provides excellent investment opportunities both for locals and remote buyers. I can provide you with my experience in the past and what tends to be an excellent , but little focused on, investment opportunity.
Though Bryan and College Station are our main markets we have many other smaller surrounding cities that are beautiful! Franklin, Caldwell, Normangee and Navasota are all just a short ride away! For more on these towns go to my website at www.ChrisTesch.com.
Bryan and College Station offers an array of excellent properties that could be home to your Aggie Student! Whether a condominium, a single family house, a duplex, four plex or townhome I can help you find the property that will meet your investment needs best.
Our area is a welcome home away from home for many former Aggies coming back for football, basketball and soccer games, social opportunities or to relive their years at A&M by watching Elephant Walk, First Yell, Ring Dance, and other wonderful A&M Traditions.
Don't forget to check out my website at www.ChrisTesch.com as well! You'll see featured homes, articles about real estate, information about the area and many great links for the area. Check out my blogs on ActiveRain as well!
Bryan and College Station Voices
I would like to take this opportunity to express my appreciation and gratitude for the hard work and knowledge my realtor. Chris Tesch coordinated both the selling of our property and the purchasing of our new home. When we explained to her what we wanted and needed in our new home it didn’t take her long to find us the perfect house. Chris was untiring and relentless when it came to getting us the best price on our new home. When I thought we had the best price, Chris came up with more ideas to save us money and she negotiated to save us a few thousand dollars more. She was instrumental in moving our property very quickly even in a slow time of year. She was out there telling other realtors about our property and showing it as often as possible. I can’t say enough about Chris she is a SUPER Realtor! We now consider her a good friend as well as our personal realtor.SincerelyMichael and Frieda Isbell
Chris was a wonderful assett on our recent move. With her area & market knowledge, sense of humor and excellent negotiation skills we found the right house, at the right price! Tom and Susan Gold
We found out how important the agent that you were working with was when we lost a home we wanted to put an offer on because the agent we were using wouldn't call us back. We switched to Chris and her responsiveness and excellant negotiating skills worked extremely well for us. We got the right investment house at the right price and then she suggested a property manager and helped her getit rented out right away!! Thanks again Chris for awesome results! Barry Guilledge
Chris really works hard for her clients and she really cares about the results. She sold our house for more than we thought we could possibly get and in a shorter time in a slow market. We are so glad we chose her! Darcy and Brian Edwards
Want a great agent that works hard for her clients? You can feel confident that Chris will be there for you! She has not only helped me out with two real estate purchases, but I've referred her to three friends and they all loved her and were very impressed. Sincerely, Mark Buchanan
Chris found the right house for me in record time and, despite the fact that there were multiple bids on the property, she convinced them to agree to our offer. She didn't stand down on repairs either. She is a great agent!!! Elizabeth Syzmanski
Chris is not only a good friend, but a great agent. Her follow up is fantastic and she works hard to make sure her clients feel good about their investment. Bob Hagerman
Thanks Chris for the note you sent congratulating us on the baby! We love our new house and our new neighborhood. Thanks for helping us find the right house. Amy and Ben Crest
