Florida Space Coast REALTOR® Theresa Friend exemplifies professionalism in real estate. Her motto: "Expect the unexpected," sets the tone for service that goes far beyond the norm.
Her dedication to helping clients achieve their real estate goals, her real estate expertise, and her regional knowledge all come together in a level of service that leads to referrals and repeat clients being responsible for at least a third of her transactions. Her clients also love to write testimonials. Here are just a few.
Theresa's listings generate multiple offers within days of being introduced to the market. She attributes this success to a complete marketing strategy that begins with working with sellers to get their homes show-ready.
When working with buyers, she provides information, education, support, and access to several local lenders, home inspectors, surveyors, and appraisers who can assist with making good decisions.
When working with investors, she enjoys seeking out those properties that will help build their wealth.
Before becoming a REALTOR®, Theresa worked in banking, holding a range of positions that gave her a complete education regarding the financial side of real estate long before she was licensed in 2004.
Once licensed, she set about learning all she could to assist buyers and sellers from the agent's side. This led her to earn Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR) and Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) designations, both of which are held by only 3 or 4% of all REALTORS®. She also holds the Accredited Luxury Home Specialist (ALHS), Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist (CLHMS), Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE) and Senior Real Estate Specialist (SRES) designations.
While Theresa enjoys helping every buyer and seller, she's especially passionate about helping veterans and those on active duty in the military.
As the spouse of a military veteran, she is uniquely qualified to understand the problems military families face when moving to and from new locations. Her dedication led her to become the third agent in Florida to receive the FMS – Florida Military Specialist designation. She also holds several other designations including Certified Military Relocator (CMR), Certified Veteran Agent (CVA), Military Relocation Professional (MRP) and is the exclusive Brevard County agent for the Military Housing Assistance Fund and the Everyday Hero Housing Assistance Fund programs.
Waterfront homes are another passion. Born and raised on the Space Coast, she's an avid boater and fisherman and spends much of her down time in the local waterways, re-exploring the canals and rivers. She understands and appreciates the specific needs of water enthusiasts of all kinds, and can guide her buyers to the locations that will bring them the most joy.
