Teresa McRae is a native Calgarian, who grew up in the Northwest community of Briar Hill. She has since enjoyed living in every quadrant of this dynamic city, and understands the flavour each area offers Calgarians. Teresa's background includes plenty of experience dealing with people and an unwavering attention to detail: She worked for several years in management and human resources, and then as a copywriter for a pharmaceutical company where the small print could mean life or death.
Teresa's BSc in plant biology has lead her to a passion for sustaining, preserving and protecting our environment. That and her activity as a occasional yoga instructor gives you an interesting well-rounded person and a consultant with a compassionate ear, a dedication to getting even the little things right, and an approach that sees clients as whole people, not numbers on a page.
"In real estate, it's hardly ever just about the bedroom configuration, or a price range. With a home, you're talking a person's whole life: Their interests, their family, their work, and their dreams. And it's so important to remember that about people, and to look after them," Teresa says.
And even though Teresa is a caring soul, someone who clearly listens well and finds helping people her greatest reward, she doesn't rely solely on her keen people senses to get people what they want.
"I learned from my mentors in real estate that what works for the clients is to get the systems refined, so that you are using technology, action plans, systems, checklists, and other resources to their utmost, so nothing falls through the cracks. I want everything to go like clockwork."
That said, Teresa is well aware that getting things right is a process that can always be improved upon. "I'm always taking courses, seminars, and talking to other agents; probably more than most. I like to get new ideas, to figure out even better ways to do things. If you think you're finished learning, it's probably time to get out."
Teresa approaches real estate with a sense of purpose; a clear focus on getting the job done right for clients; and a disciplined mindset that means her business has grown on the strength of her referrals.
"Obviously in this business word-of-mouth is everything and it makes all the hard work we pour into every transaction-- and there's always some quirk or challenging detail that needs working through-- very worthwhile when we get the appreciative smile of thanks or the referral that says it was a job well done."
