Terri is exceptionally dedicated to her clients. I live 1200 miles away from Key Largo. When I wanted to sell my investment property, I was concerned I would never hear from my agent. Terri 's communication was exceptional and with her guidance and help we sold the property in a fraction of the average time on market at a fair and reasonable price. Thanks Terri

Thank you for selling my mother in law’s house in Key Largo. She has had a tough couple of years, with her husband battling cancer and his passing away.
You handled the delicate situation of her not wanting to sell the house, since it has been in the family; it seems like forever… but needed to sell.
You treated her like a friend and got the home sold and walked both buyer and seller through the whole buying and selling process.
I know better than most how difficult this can be, since I am a real estate broker in Jupiter Florida myself. I would love to have all my realtor's as well rounded as you.
Thank you again for such a smooth and easy sale.

Terri diligently worked to her highest potential to get our house on Coco Plum sold. She had frequent communication with us, the buyer, lender, and the title company.
I know the due diligence and closing process would have been longer if Terri would not have been involved.
She was very professional throughout the entire process and I would recommend her real estate services to anyone.

We were very happy with our choice to go with Terri Bodker as our Realtor! She was the obvious choice when she was ready to get started marketing our house the day we met her, which was the day before a major holiday! We needed our house to be sold in a timely
manner and Terri delivered! She was always available when we had questions, we felt like we were her only listing when we knew that we weren't. We highly recommend Terri, and if ever we're in the situation to need a realtor in the keys again, we will be going with her!

I wanted to take a moment to give great credit to Terri Bodker for her professionalism in
dealing with a tough sale. She had to deal with three buyers in three different parts of the country and the sellers that also were in a different locals and she pulled it off without complaint. My daughter, also a Realtor was very impressed. Terri just goes that extra mile. She worked tirelessly on my behalf. I highly recommend her for any ones home buying or selling needs. She is very hands on.
Thank you again Terri

I wanted to say thanks for your patience and time with the recent sale of 135 Airstream. Being in real estate I understand the delicacy required when handling both the buyer and seller. I hope that James is pleased and enjoying his new home. I also want to say thank you again for the Lobster Pot Frame with those special pictures. I received it here in Virginia safe and sound. We will place it in our sun room / Florida room with fond memories. I hope that you have a very successful year. It was pleasure working with you .... and who knows maybe I will be your buyer next time around.

Rich and I want to thank you for your expert service in our real estate needs!
Through buying, selling and buying again we really enjoyed working with you. You made our first property purchase in the Keys at the Mariners Club an easy and stress free transaction. When I decided I wanted to move to the bayside of the island you found the buyer and through tough negotiations sealed the deal.
Then astoundingly, you found our new residence on the bay in Tamarind Bay Club and negotiated that short sale so well; the timing was seamless. We moved out of one place and right into the other just in time for both closings!
You have gone above and beyond in any questions or needs that we had from the beginning to helping us even after the closing. We really appreciate everything you have done and are still doing! We will recommend you to anyone looking to sell or buy real estate and we will certainly call you to help us in the future for our real estate needs.
Thank you again,
~~Rich and Shannon Howes / Howes and Howes Trucking Inc. Michigan / Key Largo
Ms. Bodker has extensive local knowledge which could only be obtained from living and working within a community for many years. She has reliable contacts to assist with any question that may arise. Her recommendations of personnel for inspection or other functions were also very professional and knowledgeable. It is obvious that she is well-respected within the community. Her responsiveness is impressive; she was never too busy to answer any question. She always returned calls and/or emails promptly and worked to resolve any issues immediately. I would recommend her to anyone, without hesitation.
~~Michael and Carol Hogan, Davie FL / Tavernier
Just sending you this note to say thanks for the way you handled the complete purchase of my investment property in Key Largo. From locating the property that I was looking for, through the negotiation to reach our terms, and the closing process, you were both professional and helpful. I will certainly contact you when the time comes to sell the property. Thanks again.

We emailed a number of realtors in the Key Largo area asking for their help in locating a home. Terri Bodker was the first to answer our email and was clearly the best choice. We told her what we wanted and arranged with Terri to look at houses during a five day visit to Key Largo. In those five days, she showed us close to 23 homes in Key Largo and Islamorada. .
When we met her for the first time to start our search, she had prepared a folder of the houses we were going to see that day, with details and photos in the order we were seeing them. She had water and snacks for us in her van, which was nice because it was hot and we are in our sixties and house hunting is tiring. She knew the area well and we didn't waste any time or wait around for keys to get in to various homes.
Every day, she came on time to the prearranged meeting spot with the day organized for us, including meal stops. When we requested a return to a particular house, she arranged it immediately. When we widened our search to include looking at homes at a slightly higher price, she located them and arranged a visit. When we asked to look at houses closer to Key West, she arranged that for us and we looked at another dozen homes in the Big Pine Key area.
We made an offer on our new home the day before we were due to leave for a short stay in the Caribbean, making it difficult for us to handle details until we got back to Cape Cod a week later. During this time (and during the whole purchasing process), Terri helped us, making sure the distance and communication issues didn't hinder a successful result.
We now own and love our Keys vacation home, thanks to Terri and her gracious, warm, helpful, and incredibly well-organized way of listening to our list of preferences and working hard to help us find the home we wanted. I recommend her very highly. I don't see how anyone could do a better job.
~~Michael Albert & Lydia Sargent - Founder Z Magazine - Cape Cod / Key Largo
We just wanted to thank you for helping us find our Keys dream home. It's just perfect! You were so great at understanding what we wanted, not only from what we told you, but you also intuitively understood what we had in mind, but weren't sure we could find.
Your customer portal made it so easy for us to set up parameters for our search, and keep track of what homes were possibilities, and which weren't. It saved us hours of pouring through the MLS listings!
You’re no pressure, flexible nature made you a dream to work with, and we've already recommended you to several of our friends who are thinking about a getaway in the Keys. You are the "#1 realtor in the Florida Keys", and we wouldn't want them to use anyone else! Thanks again for all your help!
~~Pam and Robert Shockey - Miami / Key Largo
Thank you so much for all your help and professionalism. It was a real pleasure working with you. Terri is the most honest, responsive and patient agent with whom I have ever done business. She worked with my wife and I for almost 2 years in search of our vacation home. Never once did she try to sell me on something which was not absolutely perfect.
~~Rodolfo and Dr. Luz Pages - South Beach / Islamorada
We want to thank you for all the time you spent with us in our house search in Key Largo. You took the time to understand what we were looking for and only showed us the homes that fit our needs. You were also there to answer our calls and provided us with all the information that we needed to purchase our Keys dream home. We would also like to thank you for assisting us in the closing and locating some contractors for some repairs we had to perform. Again thanks for all your assistance; it was great working with you.
~~James and Cynthia Simpson - Colorado / Key Largo
I had an excellent experience with Terri. My needs were sort of unusual - I was buying, but had to do so remotely from out of town without the ability to visit the home before I completed the purchase. I had researched into all of the local building codes and had visited available properties for 2 years without a realtor prior to buying. Consequently, I knew exactly what kind of property I wanted but needed Terri to manage the details for me when I was ready. Within a few days of hiring her, the perfect property for me showed up, and we jumped on it!
I so appreciate the support she provided me in what was a very daunting task, every step from the mortgage pre-approval to the moment I finally stepped into my new home weeks after the close. She helped guide me on the offer process, which involved a number of unusual caveats written into the contract as the owner needed to stay in the property briefly after the close. She even made a video for me of the property inside and out so I could see exactly what I was getting and virtually "meet" the inspector I had hired.
I had to rely heavily on Terri, as well as the inspector (whom I selected independently but she frequently works with), to give me a good sense of the state the home was in. Of course, I wouldn't recommend doing this if it can be avoided, but I think it says a lot about Terri that the whole process went so well, was handled very professionally, and that all of the advice Terri gave me and her assessments of the house and the market I purchased it in were accurate. I needed Terri to coordinate so much, between the mortgage broker, the title company, the inspector, the surveyor, the appraiser, and of course the previous owner and the other realtor, as well as myself - somehow she juggled everyone's needs and schedules and helped me close on the house I wanted, at a price within my range, by the date that I needed. And all of this, without ever even having met me!
I am so grateful to have the house I have worked so long to find, in my top choice neighborhood, and now to have a friend in my new Keys neighbor, Terri Bodker. At every stage Terri went above and beyond. She was easy to reach, was patient with my fears, and kept up an easy rapport that made me feel comfortable emailing her with all sorts of questions - even though some were more about Keys life than they were about realtor matters. She was completely honest with me, which was the primary thing I looked for in hiring her. I know she would have told me if she saw any concern with the house, or if she thought I was overpaying, and that eased my mind a great deal. She fought for my rights and was not afraid to stick up for me as a buyer, and yet had the skill to do so with the necessary tact required in such a delicate transaction. Additionally, Terri, unlike several other Keys realtors I spoke with, gave me free reign to choose whatever mortgage company and inspector I wanted. While some other realtors are involved in a neverending kickback circle of buddies, Terri has the integrity to let the client choose the right people for them, and yet was ready with recommendations of tried and true professionals if needed. Her top priority was simply for me as the client to get my needs met.
Since I couldn't get to the house for several weeks after the close, Terri also was kind enough to stop in several times to check on it for me. The day the movers came, there was a mishap and they ended up with only one mover to move all my things. I left a message for Terri to ask if she knew anyone I could hire last-minute, and she actually called around, located 2 people who might be able to help, then came to the house to check on me!
In just 3 months,Terri became like a good neighbor and friend, not just my realtor. I am so grateful for her help in making my dream come true. She has my highest recommendation.
~~Dana Grace - New York now living in Key Largo!
A few years ago we wrote to recommend realtor Terri Bodker for her excellent work in finding us a house in Key Largo, Florida. We looked at 23 houses over seven days of Terri’s beautifully organized showings.
Now, we’d like to recommend her again. This time we weren't buying, we were selling our house due to some unexpected financial problems with our non-profit business. We had to make the decision to sell the Key Largo house a week before we were due to return to our primary
residence in Massachusetts after spending the winter at the Key Largo house. As you can
imagine, we had to leave a lot of things behind so when Terri stepped in to take care of the sale, she was faced with all the things we had to leave at the house and with the fact that we had some necessary papers in Massachusetts. So she had to deal with that, with showing the house, dealing with permits and negotiations with the buyers and their lawyer, getting us contracts to sign over the internet, and many more details as furniture and boats were also involved. It must have been a nightmare of details and more details.
Nonetheless, Terri managed to take care of everything for us. Miraculously, she also managed to sell the house in two months for a very nice price and we can’t thank her enough for taking care of everything. Suffice to say, she was amazing. We are so thankful that she was our realtor and we wish she was in the North and could help us sell our house in Massachusetts.
