Partner | Realtor
Whether you are getting ready to sell your home or thinking about finding your next one, a partnership with the right agent is crucial. There’s a lot more to finding a home than searching on the internet (though it’s a great place to start). An agent with the right experience can recognize the house that has great bones but needs some work to get you a great deal on a fixer, or see the difference in a quality remodel and a quick flip. For sellers, your agent can get you the highest sales price by guiding you through smart updates, staging and marketing your home.
I am a Los Angeles native, with over 10 years experience renovating and flipping homes in West Los Angeles, Studio City, Laurel Canyon, Los Feliz, Encino and Lake Balboa. My background in design (UCLA), photography (CSUN), staging, renovation and investments are invaluable to my clients when selling, buying, leasing and investing in property. Home restoration/preservation, photography, mid-century modern and contemporary home design and architecture are my passions and I truly love what I do.
We live in Northern California and were absentee owners of a 3 bedroom rental property in Los Angeles. Teri Lewis was diligent and prompt in arranging for an entire series of inspections, repairs, and paperwork. She provided excellent advice and guided us through all the complications of dealing with our tenant, the buyer’s realtor and governmental bureaucracy. She was always available and was both business-like and cordial in her dealings with us. We give her an A+.

Teri was incredibly attentive In helping us sell our house in Culver City. She brought in her own contractors and quickly got the property into beautiful shape… fresh paint, landscaping, and additional lighting. Her design aesthetic is great – she has a lot of remodeling experience, which is very helpful. Our house sold for asking price in a couple of days – almost unheard of in our neighborhood and in this market. We can’t recommend her highly enough!

I can’t say enough good things about Teri. Not only is she really good at her job, truly earning five stars across the board, but she’s sweet and funny and very easy to work with. As a first time buyer, she really protected my interests, steering me clear of things I would never have known to even consider, and teaching me what to look for. Her help and expertise were invaluable.
Teri has assisted me in several purchases and sales of residential properties to flip in the Encino area. She located the houses, researched the market concerning what improvements could and should be made in order to maximize the return on the investment, and helped by suggesting responsible contractors who performed as promised. I would not hesitate to use her again either on my next flip, or on a purchase of a house for myself. Her advice in this area has shown me that she knows the market, and can make a realistic valuation of a property.
Simply the best realtor I’ve worked with. helpful, knowledgeable, supportive – everything you want in a real estate professional. You cannot go wrong working with Teri… one word sums Teri up: PROFESSIONAL!

Our family searched for a home for a number of months this year and were frustrated at every turn. After going through two different realtors we were introduced to Teri Lewis. Not only did Teri actually take into consideration what we were looking for in a home she didn’t push us into anything that wasn’t a fit. She was extremely patient, thorough and always on top of interests. Too often in this market we found realtors pressure us into homes and prices we didn’t feel comfortable with but Teri was the opposite. Anyone who would use Teri as a realtor would be so lucky to have her. This might sound like a cliche but actually found us our dream home.

Teri Lewis, is an outstanding Real Estate Professional to work with. She was professional, extremely knowledgeable, available, honest and thorough, during and beyond my home buying experience. I was referred to Teri, by a dear friend, that alone, should have been enough validation. To Teri’s credit, she didn’t rest there. Teri expanding my knowledge and related “need to know” information, in making my home buying decision. As a 1st time, California home buyer, Teri, a So.California native, was and still is an invaluable resource. She is available by phone and in person to provide timely information and action; from “looking”, pre-sale and through closing. She was always available to support me. Ultimately, Teri far exceeded my expectations of a Real Estate Agent and I recommend her with the highest confidence. Teri’s professionalism has, as a key element to me, perhaps, that “something” extra, knowledge and integrity combined. I found that Teri would not lead me, ask me, guide or direct me, to take action with a property, that she herself, would not take. For me, this spoke and speaks volumes about her professionalism and integrity.
