I moved to Colfax in 2000, finally realizing the dream of once again living in a small town. I choose Colfax for it’s proximity to I-80 with an easy drive West to San Francisco or East to Reno. The appealing historic downtown district sealed the deal.
After working as a Computer System Specialist/Project Manager for a couple of years I decided to find a way to work in town. When the Downtown coffee house closed, I took a big leap of faith and opened Camp 20 Coffee House in the historic trading post building. I wanted to create a place that you could get fresh food and perfect lattes in a relaxing and community environment.
With the help of my husband Larry as the Sandwich King, Camp 20 became a hit. I knew Camp 20 was what the community needed when on the 2nd day of business a customer left a book for another to pick up. The connection was made and a precedent was set. If you wanted to connect with someone, leave a message with Teri and it would happen!
Fast forward three years Camp 20 was sold and Larry got his dream job, retirement. My hard work, dedication and attention to detail did not go unnoticed. After Camp 20 sold, a local Broker approached me about becoming a real estate agent. I always had an interest in real estate and bringing people together, so after some research, I said yes.
My years as a pharmacy technician, project manager, business owner and the connections in the community bring a depth of experience to my real estate work. I made the move to Lyon Real Estate in 2009 and remain focused on the rural areas of Placer & Nevada Counties. Lyon Real Estate gives me the opportunity to expand and grow my business with their excellent agent support and focus on superior service.
I am focused on my clients needs, working to find them the perfect new home in the foothills or a qualified buyer for their current property. My attention to the detail including listening to you, knowing the area and community are some of the skills and qualities that I feel will make me your best choice for a local Realtor®. I am also tech savvy and will use my Internet and computer skills to market and find property. I am often described by my clients as tenacious and patient.
Colfax’s size makes it a great town to become involved in. I was the editor for the Colfax Historical Society newsletter for 4 years. I also work with the Kiwanis Club of Greater Colfax and Lions Club of Colfax to put on hot rod shows in town, and with the Colfax Area Chamber of Commerce to put on the Annual Railroad Days Quilt show.

Teri's calm demeanor brings order out of chaos. She was prepared for all potential obstacles. She kept me informed. Above all, I chose Teri for her integrity. I beleve Teri would not allow herself or me become involved in a shady or inappropriate transaction.

When we were trying to sell our home, we interviewed six high caliber real estate agents. Teri was one of them. We selected Teri through the interview process. Teri came across as a very professional and knowledgeable agent. She is the only one that prepared a marketing package to show me what's going on in the market right in the surrounding areas.
Besides being an exceptionally smart agent, Teri is also very thoughtful, caring and dedicated. If we need to clarify anything, she is just a phone call away. Teri totally puts her customers first. She really cares about her clients.
We were very fortunate to have Teri as our agent. She keeps us informed all the time on what's going on. Teri literally goes above and beyond to help us sell our home.
Most of all Teri help us sell our home within 2 to 4 weeks. We are very grateful for all she has done for us in selling our home so fast. Thanks A Million Teri!

Teri and Mike came highly recommended by a friend who and sold and bought a house with them. Seemed like the logical choice. I was impressed by their knowledge and understanding of my situation. I was recently widowed when I met them and they never pushed me to list. They checked in with me and answered any questions I had.
Their service to me was above and beyond anything I could have imagined. They took care of all of my needs in a timely manner and I always felt that they had my best interest in mind.

Teri is efficient and effective.
She did a good job of showcasing the positive, providing professional photographs and staging help. My home was moderately priced for the general area, but at the upper end for the immediate location. Teri helped me make it look like the best home on the street.
Once we accepted an offer, she did a good job of keeping me informed. Everything went very well, thanks to her attention to detail.

I met Teri when she worked with a friend and was very impressed with her knowledge of the area, her professionalism, and her responsiveness to questions and requests.
When I was looking for a real estate agent for myself, Teri came to mind as the best. I had previously worked with an agent from Intero Real Estate and Teri seemed to be far superior.
I was buying a home with the intention to rent it, and was new to property management. Teri had a lot of good information about the ins and outs of renting and I was so glad that she did. I am very happy with the home I purchased through Teri.

Terri and her partner,Mike Hawkins, we're just fabulous. We were long distance sellers and were dependent on Terri and Mike to not only provide expertise as to the market,but to assist us with problems that would require personal attention. There were many problems with this property from start to finish, and both Teri and Mike did whatever was necessary to ensure that the sale held together and we could close. We could not have been more pleased with them and Lyon Realty.

Kristie & Teri were very knowledgeable and responsive. She understood our timelines and requirements and moved quickly to find us the perfect home.
My wife and I have dealt with several Realtors in buying and selling our homes over the past 40 years and Teri is our favorite agent. Throughout the process of searching
the areas of Auburn, Colfax, and Meadow Vista for a home Teri was very patient
and helpful in explaining these very diverse areas. With Teri's help we were able to find and purchase our dream home in the Darkhorse community of Auburn. I agree with the other listed reviewers that Teri is a very effective negotiator who is always available to give excellent advice and promptly obtain answers to any questions that

This letter is to acknowledge the wonderful experience my wife and had when we ask you to help us with our real estate
challenges. We had tried to sell our home ourselves with absolutely no results or prospects. Once we contacted you we were
lifted to a new level of professionalism.
Your approach to our problems were immediate and sincere. You provided us with precise information on our Real Estate
investments and plotted a path to help us resolve our need to downsize as quickly as possible.
Once we listed with you, our home sold within one week. It was the way you packaged it and made it saleable that turned our
failure to success. Our goal was to sell and that is what you did !
With your continued support and advice we found a new home that met all of our requirements. This was not easy as we had a lot
of desires and a small budget. My wife and I had conflicting views on many items the new home should or should not have. You
were calm and guided us through the pros and cons and we reached a great conclusion.
I am convinced that had we not signed up with you, we would still be mired in trying to sell our other home. Instead we are moved
in and well under way to completing our moving and starting a more simple life for our future.
We highly recommend to anyone who is considering you for a listing or a sale to immediately more forward and accept your
Should you feel the need you may refer any prospective client to us for a personal recommendation.
