Very intelligent and not afraid to put in the work to make it happen for you! I will always go to her first.
They are both hard-working, determined individuals so it only makes sense that they went into realty together! Their love for completing a mission and helping others will no doubt make them succeed in their real estate future together!
After touring a few homes Tessie zeroed in on what was perfect and advised us strongly to be patient as there were a few homes about to come into the market we may really like and fit our needs. It was hard being patient, but in good faith we took our time. A home came on the market a month later, and with some much needed guidance and advice into writing a letter to the sellers to find commonality and love with what we toured, it was a success! Tessie and Scott teamed up to provide us with the best letter to seller advice, most knowledgeable and helpful scheduling and touring, and the friendliest of visits! Their responses were always quick and if busy, would leave a text message or email with intent to follow up ASAP! Their degree of Friendliness and professionalism had us feeling like part of a family as they delivered us start to finish on our affordable dream home for our family! Communication was the absolute best, between sellers and us as the buyers through Tessie and Scott. They say communication is key, and in today’s market shopping for a new home happens so fast, most often within 24 hours or less. They had our offer ready, our letter to seller, and all our information in order and presented in a manner that allowed us to acquire our home out of 9 offers and overbid. Their ability to present everything in such a manner of professionalism and completeness that is was an open and shut closing! Thank you from our family to yours! If you’ve struggled and have had little success searching a finding the ONE for your next home... Tessie and Scott from You and Me Realty should be your next call!
She helped us find the right property for us and guide us through some of the ins and outs of multifamily properties. Thanks Tessie!
I recommend her services to anyone looking to find a home that will suit their needs. She is willing to go above and beyond for her clients. We have been very fortunate to have her on our side.
We met her by chance. She was the agent for a piece of land we were interested in. She went the extra mile that afternoon so we invited her to look at our house and see what she thought. She was nothing short of amazing. Our house was sold in days and for over asking. Tessie made sure we made informed, educated decisions about the selling of our home and then helped us purchase the land we originally started with. Her upbeat go get'em attitude really helped me and my husband feel comfortable with all the choices we had to make. She really represented our interest at every turn. We would use this team again in a heartbeat!
She listened to what we wanted in a home and delivered. She had our best interest in mind the entire time and made the processing of purchasing our home as smooth as possible. That witty personality of hers made the process fun and enjoyable.10/10 would recommend!
We were moving into ME from out of state and she didn't hesitate for a second. She even did a few virtual tours for us. Tessie has a wealth of knowledge that made this leap possible for us. She is down to earth, honest, trustworthy, and hardworking. We are so grateful to have found her and we highly recommend calling her for your property buying and selling needs.
She is knowledgeable, professional, passionate and fun! She provides a full-service experience that really is bar none. She doesn’t just broker real estate transactions, but rather, uses all of her knowledge and contacts to truly provide a personalized and meaningful experience. I met Tessie when I reached out one evening inquiring about a property she had listed. However, before she called me promptly the next morning, I had decided that this property would be too much work and require too much hassle to bother with and I was planning to tell her as much. Rather than walking away she peaked my interest in the property and immediately impressed me with her passion and knowledge of real estate and business. Her knowledge, unique approach and contacts helped close the deal and make this project possible!! Thank you You and Me Realty brokered by eXp Realty! And thank you Tessie!! From start to finish you made this an amazing experience and you really did make this dream come true! It is also important to note that for the past 10 years I have avoided the use of a realtor on buy side transactions, but after meeting Tessie and her team, and closing this deal, she adds too much value to not want her on my team for my next purchase. Tessie is definitely someone you want on your side. Highly recommended.
The first time we met she made us so comfortable it was as if we knew her as a friend for years. She made each step in the selling process simple, and was there for us the entire time, until our home sold. We are so thankful we chose Tessie, and highly recommend her to anyone who wants to buy or sell a home. She is a FIVE STAR broker.
She is not only knowledgeable about her business but her genuine enthusiasm and positive attitude are refreshing traits to find! When we worked with Tessie she was always responsive to our questions and understanding of our situation. She found us a number of great houses to look at in short order and helped us determine exactly what it was we were looking for. I would do business with Tessie again in a heartbeat! Thanks Tessie!
She was professional in every aspect. She did an awesome job of getting the house ready for pictures and the photographer she worked with did an amazing job. I would highly recommend her to help sell your home. She always got me answers when I needed them and keep me informed all the time. Excellent job!
Tessie said she could and she did and for more then I could've hoped. Professional, dedicated and driven I couldn't have asked for a better real estate agent. She answered all my questions and my doubts with a contagious smile and support that made me feel important. If it's important to you it's important to her and she means it. If you are selling or buying I highly recommend this duo they will not let you down!
If anyone hears of somebody looking to buy or sell property and want to help this entrepreneur on the journey to success add her to your list when looking and talking to REALtors to represent you. with 4 children her and husband raise while working full time jobs, she really impressed us with her drive. seeing that in people these days I feel is rare. I hold people to high expectations, because I truly want people to push themselves and succeed because the company you keep is a reflection of who you are or who you want to be. Now that most of the dust is settled and we’re hanging family photos on the wall we can’t be grateful enough.
Always there when you need questions answered or any help! Very knowledgeable in all areas of Real Estate buying or selling. Very kind and considerate towards customers!
I highly recommend using them for all your home buying and selling needs.
She really cares about what you're looking for and won't stop until you get there! So happy to be new home owners with the hard work of Tessie!
Going into the home buying process as a first-time home buyer we were very nervous but Tessie made the journey much easier And made sure we understood the steps along the way and stood by our side! She made us feel very comfortable and by the end, she was pretty much part of the family 💜 she answered all the questions no matter given the day or time without any hesitation or attitude she was very positive about the whole situation. I highly above and beyond recommend Tessie for any of your home buying needs or even selling 😊
She jumped at the opportunity and quickly went to work for us by arranging everything from a special photo shoot for our custom-built home to an open house. She and her team ensured the open house was well advertised, welcoming, and, as a result, successful. Throughout the selling process, she was always available to provide recommendations, consultation, and strategies to us. She kept us informed during the entire process by outlining objectives, providing guidance, and reminders of deadlines. Tessie even went the extra mile by auditing our home’s previous MLS property card and noted some discrepancies and ensured our listing was as accurate as possible. She even went as far as calling the town office to correct tax assessment data that she found during her review of our homes records- again, to help ensure a smooth sale. Under her coordination and supervision, we got to say “Boom, sold it!” about a month later. Fast forward almost a year and, after months of looking for our new house, my wife and I owe Tessie a huge thank you for helping us with our second transaction with her. The real estate market was, and still is, very competitive, and buying a home in it can be a fatiguing, demoralizing, and stressful experience; however, Tessie saw us through the storm! We looked at several homes after selling our old house and Tessie was so helpful, patient, understanding, and responsive through the entire buying process. She would always get us in to see a home ASAP and provided insight on each home’s condition, repair costs, and other general and personal recommendations and considerations. She was a true team member for us. She worked tirelessly and was very responsive and timely to our messages and questions so we could make prompt decisions. The home we went under contract for was a “fixer upper” but in a great location, so we went for it. However this transaction was not for the faint-hearted! A distressed seller and attorneys on the other end of the table made for a unique buying experience for us but Tessie helped us handle the entire process with ease. We had a lot of questions along the way but she was always by our side ready to provide or find answers. She helped coordinate and supervise the house clean out that the sellers were responsible for in the final hours (literally hours before closing) to ensure the job was done correctly and completely. She even offered to go to the house a couple times to oversee things, even when my wife and I couldn’t. After our second successful closing with Tessie, we were so thankful and excited to finally say “Boom- Bought it!!” After nearly a year of working together, my wife and I couldn’t be happier and more pleased with our entire experience with Tessie and the rest of her office staff. She will not disappoint. She’s extremely passionate, personable, knowledgeable, and helpful and a one-of-a-kind friend and real estate agent. Tessie’s phone number will remain in our phones for when we may need her services again! Thank you, Tessie!
if your looking for investment properties or just want to buy your future home, I highly recommend them.
She was professional and approachable. Tessie answered all of our questions in a timely manner. She made selling our house easy and so much less stressful. We are so grateful we chose her to sell our house! Thank you Tessie!!
Tessie was very responsive, knowledgeable, and diligent throughout our hunt and the closing process. She hooked us up with great local companies who have been equally as genuine and kind as Tessie. My wife and I felt supported and well guided during this process. She made a stressful life event into smooth sailing! Tessie has your best interest at heart.
My husband and I had called her to talk about selling our home and looking for a new one. We were looking at a unique living situation and needed a lot of space to accommodate that.. Over the next few months we looked at many houses, and even went under contract a couple of times. When those houses didn't turn out to be the right one, Tessie was right there with a positive attitude to assure us that it would be okay and that we would find the right one!! We did find the right home about 4 months into looking. More than a realtor, Tessie became my friend. She was a professional, a shoulder to cry on when I was stressed, and an overall good human. From coaching me on how to prepare to make our debut on the market with a showing weekend to teaching us about different aspects of choosing the best offer on our old home to best suit our needs, she was supportive and educated us every step of the way. I couldn't recommend a better person to choose as your realtor on your home buying or selling journey. Buying or selling a home is such a personal, emotional process, and she really became a part of the family through it all. Give her a shot - she will work harder for you than anyone I know!!
she made it as smooth as possible. We looked at so many different houses. The overall experience was beyond exceptional. Thank you again for all your hard work and time!
Navigating the real estate market is challenging during the best of times. In what is currently the most competitive market in recent history, it is impossible without the guidance of a realtor who is fiercely dedicated to their client. If you just want to look at houses while other people buy them, any realtor can help you with that. If you want to find your dream home and own it, you need to speak to Tess. Thanks again for everything.
As a first time home buyer, I have to say that You and Me was unrelenting about helping me find my absolute perfect home. I went from knowing absolutely nothing about buying a house to learning what perils you can encounter, what not to do, things to be on the look-out for, what may look like a good deal when it's not, and, their agents are there for you every single step of the way. My journey was over a year long in this tough market. You and Me Real Estate was not only a blessing; I truly see them as close family friends that really cared about me as a person; they understood my situation, my needs and what I have always wanted. I could not possibly speak more highly of the professionalism, the drive and the knowledge that they have; they are truly amazing and they will stop at nothing short of excellence! Going to You and Me Realty means that you could not be in better hands for your Real Estate needs.
I highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell --- and then, hold on to your hats!!
! Very professional and punctual, keeping it light and fun along the way. I couldn't be happier with my land purchase and look forward to my new home....already being aided by Tessie and her connections with local builders and subcontractors!! Boom!!
5 stars is not enough! Tessie and her team were amazing!!! She is extremely motivated, detail-oriented, and ready to tackle any and all obstacles along the way with a smile and positive attitude. She made herself available 24hrs a day to me and my buyers and was there to help us with any issues or needs that popped up taking all of the pressure of from us and making sure it was a seamless transaction! I would highly recommend Tessie and her team for your selling or purchasing needs, I will be using her again!!!
Our agent was professional, courteous, and communicated very well. Her market analysis helped us get the most for our property. We couldn’t be happier with her service
She just helped us purchase our house . She is very knowledgeable on the working systems of a house of what a house should have or not. Always free to answer any questions. Helps you with getting the right people in connection for the house. Example: (inspector) etc. It was a great experience working with Tessie, she is very easy and friendly person. Tessie would be an asset for any buyer to have in this market.
she’s the best at what she does. House hunting is stressful and time-consuming. With Tessie, it’s an adventure and she’s very professional, punctual, and knows her stuff and she’s also doesn’t have the personality of Snapes from Harry Potter so that’s a plus. I gave her 3 criteria for a house, one floor, basement, and a garage. And she knocked it out of the park got what I wanted within my budget. I promise “no regrets” having her by your side when house hunting. Thank you Tess for everything you did.
She hustles so hard, does her research and is 100% dedicated to getting you what you have been dreaming of. This market has been so crazy and she still never skipped a beat. I will always recommend her to everyone I know.
She has a big heart for Real estate, not only for her clients but for everyone. What she does is not just a business/job but it's something she put into her heart. She's very thorough, professional and more than you expected! If you're planning to buy or sell a home, don't hesitate to message her! This is the start of something awesome towards your home search/selling journey!
Thanks to Tessie I was able to close on the sale of a unique seasonal property in a short period of time. Tessie’s drive and can-do spirit is very infectious and her diligence and ability to keep me grounded was essential throughout. She has many contacts and was able to help me get a contractor to perform some needed work prior to the listing when I couldn’t get contractors to return my calls. Her market analysis on a difficult to value property was spot on and she was able to get multiple offers for the property well above what I considered to be the value of the property. Tessie started as my seller’s agent and ended as a friend. I couldn’t be any happier with her work and look forward to doing more business with her in the future.
This team is hardworking, dedicated, educated, and will not quit! I have bought and sold with Tessie many times and she has always followed through with every promise, and supported with every struggle and celebration. I will never buy or sell a property without this awesome team of talented and fun people!
When we made the decision to list our house, I cold-called four realtors base on an internet search of highly recommended realtors in the area. I had to leave messages with all of them (I called on a Saturday morning.). I set up appointments to meet with both and have them look at the house and give me their thoughts on listing with them. I settled on Tessie because I felt that her recommendations for getting the house listed and sold was logical made good business sense and her overall positive energy made me feel like she was going to work hard for us. She did not disappoint. Right from the start, Tessie was focused on listening to our goals and interests. She made great recommendations about things that needed to be fixed up and other things that we shouldn’t spend money on to get the house sold quickly. She recommended to us people to do various small repairs (roofer, plumber, garage door guy) that needed to be done and they were all quick to respond and get the work done. When it comes to marketing, Tessie’s use of social media platforms and drawing attention to your property is top notch. Her posts are fresh and fun and she shared with us the analytics. We listed the house on a Tuesday and had it under contract on Saturday after receiving 4 offers. Tessie coordinated the subsequent closing prep activities and closing day was a breeze. The whole effort, from beginning to end, was smooth and quick. I attribute this to the fact that Tessie is a great communicator. Emails and texts are quickly responded to and she will frequently check in throughout the process. Overall, I couldn’t be happier with our experience with Tessie. She is a great realtor. She pays attention to her clients, is honest, direct, responsive, and a good person.
Her job was not an easy one in a very strong seller's market. We were only looking at homes that had enough square footage for our whole extended family and an area for my wife and I to create an in-law apartment on the ground floor. Right from day one, Tessie demonstrated that she is a hardworking professional Realtor who will spend as much time as it takes to find her clients just the right house. She stayed in touch with all of us constantly and if she didn't have the answer to a question she worked extra hard to find out the answer. We are thrilled to now own a beautiful home in the school district that our grandkids were already attending and an easy commute to shopping, recreational activities, and medical care for us all. If you are looking for a Realtor who's the best Tessie Elwell at You and Me Real Estate by eXp Realty (and her partner Scott) will take care of the rest!
She really cares about what you're looking for and won't stop until you get there! So happy to be new home owners with the hard work of Tessie!
Both experiences exceeded my expectations. I will be doing several more transactions with them in the near future.
