Recommendation Request

Whether it's a recommendation for a restaurant, a vacation spot or a real estate agent, I have always felt that a testimonial is society's most powerful marketing tool. No matter how much advertising and promotion a business does, it always comes back to the overall customer experience.

I strive to make that experience exceptional in each every one of the real estate transactions I broker, and I sincerely hope that describes your experience with me.

When someone takes the time to recount a positive experience, it speaks volumes. And so I would like to request a small favor - a testimonial that will give others a sense of the experience and service I offer.

This testimonial can be as short or as long as you like. It is valuable to my future business and, just as importantly, allows me to continuously improve upon the level of service I provide. Feel free to either e-mail me at (email address) or use the submit testimonial button to share your thoughts on working together.

I sincerely appreciate your feedback and look forward to serving your real estate needs for years to come.

FocalPoint Realty Testimonial

“We are writing to express my pleasure with real estate broker Tess Shepard who represented us in our recent purchase of a single-family home.

Tess guided us through the entire process, from loan prequalification to searching for houses to making the offer and closing the deal. We credit Tess with a smooth, stress-free home-buying experience.

This is our third purchase of property, and never had we had such a pleasurable experience. Tess is savvy, personable and knows the market inside and out. We never could have gotten our dream home without her.

To reiterate, we are nothing but pleased with Tess and her expertise and we commend her to everyone.”

Client Recommendation

“I have had the great pleasure of knowing Tess Shepard since 2003. I hired Tess to negotiate the purchase of my first home. I was so pleased with the work that Tess did for us the first time, we never even considered another agent.

When it came time to negotiate, Tess got the initial asking purchase price and all the home improvements that we asked for.

I would give Tess my highest recommendation. Tess's unique talent set was invaluable to me. She knows the San Diego market inside out and everybody involved in it. In touring properties and meeting with owners and agents, it quickly became apparent that Tess is one of the most respected agents in town. I subsequently learned why. Tess took the time to understand what I want and what I really needed. As a result, she was able to find the perfect home for me and even make space planning recommendations that were right on target.

Tess did so much more for me than was required or expected. She was truly there for the entire process and remains so. Any problem or issue that has arisen, she has done everything in her power to make right. Not only did she find the right home for me but her expertise and advice saves us a significant amount of money. Tess was extremely hard-working and tenacious negotiator.

I would describe her as fiercely loyal to his clients. She is also one of the most positive, upbeat people I have ever met which makes working with her a true pleasure.”
