My husband and I have three children and both work. We were looking for experience and full service with outstanding attention to detail every step of the way when we decided to sell a house on Capitol Hill. Team Foster exceeded our expectations during every phase of the process: pre-sale preparation and planning (getting our home ready to sell and moving us out); staging the home for market (free for Team Foster clients); pricing our home (this was data-based and also informed by years of experience in various market cycles); open houses and showings ; negotiation; closing (we closed five days after accepting an offer well over asking price). I would add that Team Foster’s advice and communication around the offers on our home—we had several—was exceedingly thorough, thoughtful, and experienced. I felt they left no stone unturned in the marketing (including social media) and more generally in the sale of our house, and I would want my parents to work with them, my siblings, my closest friends, and neighbors. I could write a poem, “how do I love Team Foster, let me count the ways…”
We were given several names of top real estate agents. We decided to work with Moya Skillman and Tere Foster from Team Foster. They are truly the best of the best! Team Foster was dedicated to making sure we found the right house that met all our priorities and needs and within our price range. As great as a Realtor might be with their clients, what is equally important is the respect and reputation they have within the industry and with their peers. Whenever we told someone that we were working with Tere and Moya, the consistent response was, “Oh, you are with the very best!” The Fosters’ outstanding service hasn’t ended with the “close” of our home, even after moving in, they continue to help with any of our new owner needs. Moya, Tere and Team Foster have gone above and beyond our greatest expectations. We feel so lucky and thankful to have been referred to Team Foster!

After an experience with another agent, I went to Tere for her local market expertise and her relationships with other agents and the local business community. Equally important to me was the strong team she had behind her. They ensured that everything with our sale went smoothly and professionally from staging, photography and marketing prep, to negotiating and closing the deal. We were so pleased with the way it was handled that we chose to use them on what we thought would be a simple purchase. As it turned out, there were numerous challenges with that transaction. Tere’s team took it in stride and helped us through the tough spots while at the same time facilitating the quickest possible close. I would happily use her and her team again and will be referring them to my friends!
If you are looking for an agent for a high-end home transaction, look no further: Tere Foster and her team are the very definition of excellence! We just completed our 3rd transaction with them (a purchase this time in Ballard after two previous sales in Medina) and we couldn’t be more pleased with their professional execution and results! They found a buyer for us during the first transaction in a week, after we had the house listed with another agent for over 6 months! Several years later, our second house sold in days! And we couldn’t be more pleased with our just-closed home purchase today. Tere and Team Foster truly are the Michael Jordan & Chicago Bulls of Washington real estate!
Tere Foster and her entire team did the impossible! She sold my house in less than 2 months, during the peak of the corona-virus lock-down, while I was on my honeymoon. Team Foster helped me clean out my house from afar, staged it, arranged for the trims to be trimmed on my neighbor’s property, and did everything else that’s required to put a home on the market. Tere found an all-cash buyer, worked out a tricky title / property-line issue, and closed the transaction on time. Team Foster is not just a slogan, but an accurate description of Tere’s work style. Every interaction with each of her half-dozen team members was prompt, professional, and pleasant. No ball ever got dropped.
Excellent, I have always been well represented and my best interests looked after. Whenever I have a question or concern no matter how big or small it is taken seriously and attended to promptly. I have always been extremely impressed with the marketing pieces and how well the Foster Team represents DME construction. You have surpassed my expectations so many times, it is hard to think of something you could do better. Tere, you have a very talented team and it’s obvious why you have success. I have enjoyed working with everyone and look forward to future sales of DME Homes.
I recently bought and sold homes with Team Foster in the course of four months. From the first high-touch walk through at my home to the support with finding service providers, outlining steps needed, sending reminders of actions, follow-up commuications, and helping answer questions at all hours, this is the Dream Team in every sense. I also noticed that the buyers and sellers for each property took notice when they heard we were working with Tere and Moya. Their reputation is gold class in Seattle and well deserved. I can’t recommend them enough in every way.
Team Foster was the best decision we had to sell our house. We had being talking about selling for a year before we were ready. We had gotten advice from a handful of agents and we are so glad we went to Team Foster. The complimentary staging made a HUGE difference. We had various problem with our house and they were there to supervise the work that needed to be done after we moved out the house and while we were in Europe. They were honest with us and gave us proper expectation the whole time. Extremely professional. Highly recommended!
We reviewed information from several agents and brokers and interviewed a select few. Tere Foster and her team are who we selected. She is excellent at seeing the value in your house and setting the price accordingly. The advertisement placement and marketing materials were very well done. And, she has an outstanding team supporting her and answering all your questions. However, the main reason we picked Tere and Team Foster for our sale is that she is an excellent negotiator.
I want to acknowledge what a pleasure it has been working with all of you. This office has been involved in what seems like one hundred real estate transactions, both nationally and some outside of the country and it can be challenging without having a physical presence. Your entire team eliminated these challenges, were extremely responsive, and without question, you are the most professional group I’ve had the pleasure of working with.
We were extremely pleased and satisfied with how you and your team handled the marketing and selling of our home. All of you were professional, knowledgeable and excellent communicators. There was always someone from your team available should we have any questions, and everyone was up to speed as to what was going on with the house. I also really appreciated the proactive approach you and your team took in addressing any issues.

We have worked with Tere and Team Foster many times and they are the best. Tere has an incredible knowledge of the market and what timing is required to get a house sold. Team Foster are true professionals, wonderful to work with and very responsive. Tere and the team staged our house for sale and it it sold in just over a week. If you want to sell your home you could be in no better hands than Team Foster.
If you are buying/selling, Team Foster is your go-to. Their professional agents know the area, make the entire transaction smooth, and are quick on the draw. The team’s collaborative approach ensures that when you work with one person, you are working with all members of the team. I cannot recommend Team Foster, Tere Foster, and Lance Harwell any higher. You will not be disappointed.
Tere, Moya and Team Foster did an outstanding job helping our family purchase of our first home. They assisted with every step from start to finish in such a professional manner and made us feel so comfortable and supported along the way. The entire process was seamless and we couldn’t be more thankful for all they did for us. It was an absolute pleasure working with this team.
Great team, very attentive to every detail. The best house selling experience we’ve ever had and this was the 8th house we’ve sold but the first with Team Foster. All the staff were professional, pleasurable and very skilled at what they do. Exceptional staging within their team was another key service they provided. Highly recommended Team Foster!
Team Foster surpassed our expectations with regards to knowledge and customer service. They reached out to an attorney to make sure the title report was up to date. This kept us from buying a property that had limitations which the seller had not disclosed. Thank you, Team Foster, for treating our investment as if it were your own!

Tere Foster and her team were a pleasure to work with on the recent sale of our home. She helped us understand the current market and what we had to do to prepare our home for market. She was very attentive and stayed focused on our property until it had closed, and we had moved out. We would highly recommend Tere and her team!

Great guidance! Their suggestions on preparation and staging were critical. The team is highly responsive and professionally organized. They worked collaboratively with clockwork precision. Knowledge of the market was deep and valuable. Pricing advice and education was accurate and thoughtful. An amazing experience! Thanks TF!
Superbly professional! The Team coordinated the whole process. Got the house prepared, studied the market and managed the entire process. They are the leaders in Bellevue and understand the dynamics of the market superbly. Easy to work with as well, they made a stressful process easier to manage. I would highly recommend them.
Tere and her team provided the highest level of service on two recent transactions. She helped us find our dream home and helped us sell our current home. Throughout both transactions the service and professionalism were off the charts. We are very happy with the results of both transactions. We highly recommend Tere and team.
Dear Tere: We would like to thank you and your team for all your hard work and diligence in selling our waterfront home. We knew we had the BEST team helping us and our experience with you could not have been better. You exceeded every aspect of our expectations. We look forward to the purchase of our next home with you!
I would highly recommend Team Foster. They are highly knowledgeable about the area, very responsive, and experienced negotiators. They get showings lined up quickly and make it happen! They helped me get in my dream home fast! I always felt confident during negotiations because I knew Team Foster was up to bat for me!
Foster Realty did an incredible job of staging and marketing; our house went into contract the second day it went on the market and closed in less than one month. They made sure the transaction was smooth and took care of everything.
Tere is a true professional that guided us through every step in the purchase of our home. She has tremendous knowledge of the market skillfully represented us on every issue that came up. We would highly recommend her and her team.
