Get to know Therese Swan
Therese Swan is committed to providing the highest quality service in the real estate industry. She utilizes her previous experience in the sale of high-end business and technology consulting in order to thoroughly understand her clients needs, analyze market conditions, and provide her clients with the in-depth information they need to make timely and accurate real estate decisions. In addition, her clients value her strong negotiating skills that she developed during eight years of executive sales.
Being sixth out of seven children, Therese grew up in the Bay Area in a family with extremely strong values that recognized the importance of education, hard work, and, above all else, honesty and integrity. She developed an early passion for real estate and began investing in properties right after college. Her experience and success in both real estate investing and real estate technology eventually led her to pursue a career in real estate sales in 2003.
Therese quickly gained success as a real estate agent. By her third year in the business she was in the Top 5% of Santa Clara County Realtors. By her fourth year in the business she was #3 agent in Almaden Valley. For both 2009 and 2010, Therese has been Almaden Valley's #1 Agent for both number of homes sold as well as total dollar volume.
Therese has a Bachelor of Science degree from The College of William and Mary with majors in both mathematics and computer science. In addition, she studied at the graduate level in advanced computer science at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
Prior to Real Estate, Therese worked in the technology industry, first as a programmer, then as a project lead, and later in sales for both software and high-end business and technology consulting services. Programming expertise includes both Applications Programming on a multitude of platforms, databases and operating systems as well as MVS Systems Programming.
Therese and her husband live in Almaden Valley. They have three beautiful daughters. As a resident of Almaden Valley, she enjoys hiking in Almaden's Quicksilver Park, roller skating on the Coyote Creek Trail, and donates much of her spare time and resources to helping the homeless and the disabled.
"We searched for a home for two years and we spoke to numerous agents before we finally found one we trusted. Therese worked hard on our behalf, regularly kept us informed, leveraged off of a great network of inspectors, and maintained our best interests in heart." David and Manee Chen
