Trust in Terri!
Born in Los Angeles, I was blessed to be raised by my loving Polish/Italian parents and grandparents. They were such hard working people from the “Old World”. They taught me success and happiness could only be achieved through hard work, education, honesty, and the Golden Rule, “Treat others as you would like others to treat you”.
With this foundation, any failure for me was simply a challenge. I had a “can do” spirit.. My sales career began with a part time retail sales job in high school. After attending Santa Monica College and the death of my parents, I moved to the beautiful Lake Almanor area of the Northern Sierras near Lake Tahoe. There I built and managed a small community convenience store for five years. It was great. I loved helping others, while receiving in exchange the rewards of long term relationships.
My real estate career began in 1981 at Century 21. Initially, I decided selling real estate would be a great part time career which, for everyone successful in this business, is an inside joke. My accomplishments included high volume residential homes and land sales, including the sale of new luxury home sales in the Reno, Nevada area and eventually creating my own brokerage, Stevens Realty.
Now forty years later, I still have the same passion and love for all that the real estate industry has provided me. Besides keeping up with real estate at Ronival, probably the best real estate firm I’ve been lucky to work at, I try to get to Rudos Gym downtown, bake a pie or cookies for my friends, get to one of our many awesome Mexican restaurants, take a day trip to one of our beautiful beaches and small hide-a-way colonial towns close by. And best of all, living in Cabo, I am still close to SoCal to visit my “little ones”, my three daughters and four granddaughters. What more can One ask for in this life!!
