Testimonials

 

“3 years ago, my family and I were faced with a decision to move to Winnipeg or Calgary for work purposes. We eventually ended up choosing Winnipeg and Karen (WTW) was instrumental in helping us understand Winnipeg, the neighborhoods and finding the right new home for our family. Karen was available, responsive and always willing to help. 3 years later, we continue to be very happy with our decision.”

 

Sincerely,

It's been almost two years since I came to Winnipeg. I was referred to you by one of my friends in Winnipeg even before I landed here. As they say, a good start to any job is almost 80% work done. Your knowledge of the city and its neighborhood is exemplary and helped me get my current place of living. Your professionalism, friendly nature and ability to understand clients’ needs not only make you a good realtor but also an excellent friend. The city of Winnipeg has several names, both good (the heart of the continent) and not so good (Winterpeg). My wife and I would like to call Winnipeg the 'city of love' as we met here. You helped us get our dream house and we are extremely grateful to you. We have already recommended you to many of our friends and colleagues. Keep up the good work and all the very best for all your future endeavours.

You know, I can't tell you how many times people have told us that this place is great for raising families and it made us feel like we made the right decision by settling here.  First and foremost, we both agree that this place indeed is "friendly Manitoba" like the license plate states.

“From the moment I connected with her, it was clear that Karen was committed to finding the ideal house for me. She carefully noted the features that I desired in a home but more importantly, she also took to time to find out about me and my lifestyle....she showed us many of the wonderful neighbourhoods, shops and restaurants that the City had to offer. I have been to Winnipeg many times before but she presented an entirely new perspective on the City. This kind of introduction is invaluable for prospective employees of the University who are visiting for the first time. Karen is wonderful advocate for Winnipeg, a consummate professional and a caring person who puts the need of the client first.....I hope the University will continue to use her as its REALTOR® of choice.”

"Karen became actively involved in my relocation to Winnipeg early in my recruitment to the Department of Surgery. She worked closely with me to determine my personal and professional needs in order to narrow the districts where I would be satisfied. This involved getting to know me in person and by e-mail and introducing me to several Winnipeg treasures such as the Mediterranean Market on Taylor and Stella's Cafe. In the end, I only looked at three houses.  I bought the first house I looked at! This was possible as Karen worked diligently to match my "list" with homes she knew were available.  In fact, the house I ended up purchasing was not even on the market yet.

Karen is not just a real estate agent, she is a true relocation expert.  She loves the city where she lives and grew up in and she is interested in customer satisfaction."

"Karen Tereck is more than a REALTOR®...she cares.  Buying a house in only part of relocating and Karen is willing and able to respond to the smallest of settlement issues. She is a strong advocate for Winnipeg and offsets the fear of relocating with excitement and adventure.  I have witnessed Karen satisfy customers and make miracles happen on several occasions.  No market is too tight for Karen Tereck! She is relentless and trustworthy."

"In early 2012 I was contemplating accepting a job in Winnipeg.  Accepting the job meant relocating my family of four from Ontario.  We know where to start looking for appropriate schools and from that neighborhoods in which to shop for a house.

The company recruiting me put me in touch with Karen Terek and "Welcome to Winnipeg".  We didn't know what to expect- I feared it would be just another real estate agent with a new approach to selling her listings.  I could not have been more wrong - Karen truly has a passion for Winnipeg, and she knows the city inside out.  She has made it her mission to help people contemplating moving here.  The resulting house sale is her only monetary payback, but we never had the impression that was her motivation.

 

Karen used every means available to get to know us and understand our needs.  She introduced us to the city by email then with a well thought-out tour on our first visit.  We chose an area of the city we liked and karen kept us updated with suitable house listings every few days for almost five months.  During several subsequent visits, she arranged viewings even when our timeline meant there was little chance for a resulting sale.

 

I recommend Karen and 'Welcome to Winnipeg' unconditionally."
