TOP REAL ESTATE AGENT IN TENNESSEE TERESA BISHOP
From a very young age, Teresa Bishop was intrigued with real estate. When she entered the workforce, Teresa initially worked for the company her parents owned, but after they sold that business, Teresa decided she would finally pursue her first love. “I knew this was my chance to try real estate out. I went to school and got my license in 2008. I couldn’t be happier with my decision.”
Teresa got her Broker’s license in 2012, and is big on continuing education, taking advantage of every opportunity she can to expand her expertise in order to better serve her clients. Teresa partnered up with her husband Danny, and together they form one of the most in-demand teams working in the highly competitive Nashville market. “We both bring specific skills to the partnership, and complement each other perfectly. Every client we work with gets the best of both worlds. Our clients become family to us, and I think that’s because we really focus on building relationships with people.”
Teresa is a lifelong resident of Nashville and has an in-depth knowledge of the area that offers her clients a distinct advantage. She also has an extensive sphere of influence and valuable relationships with several lenders allowing her to always direct her clients to the mortgage professional who will best accommodate their needs.
If you ask Teresa’s clients what they liked most about working with her, almost all would say the exceptional customer experience she provides. “We really earn our clients trust from the start. We tell them what they need to know, good and bad, and we have a lot of patience. We treat people like family and they see our passion for putting their needs first. I’m also always available, and don’t mind working long days. My clients know if I don’t pick up the phone, I’m on a call and will get back to them shortly.” It’s no surprise that Teresa has a remarkably high 90% rate of repeat and referral business.
But the relationships Teresa builds don’t end when the active transaction does. Teresa prioritizes keeping in touch with past clients in several unique ways. “I used to cook on a local show in town, and a lot of people know me from that, so one fun thing I do is send out recipe cards to my clients. I also like to send out home improvement tips and stay in touch on social media, as well. I really get to know them and their interests, so I try and keep things very personal. I actually care about what’s going on in their lives and I think they know I’m genuine.”
Teresa is actively involved with her church and is particularly interested in helping feed the hungry and working to provide toys around the holidays to children in need. When she isn’t working, Teresa enjoys traveling, socializing with friends and trying out new restaurants.
Teresa has already written one book on buying and selling real estate and she’s working on her second. She also remains devoted to improving herself by earning more designations and staying updated on all industry changes and technological advances. “It’s all about serving my clients to the best of my ability. Helping people and seeing them happy and connected to the community is very rewarding. I love what I do and feel that it’s a privilege to help people achieve their real estate dreams.”
