Preparing Your Property
Together Dorothee and Terry have forged a strong partnership to help you with your real estate needs. Each individually brings strengths to the table while both share the same work ethic to create the real estate reality for you that you are looking for.
DOROTHEE FRIESE is a "LIFER" in Real Estate. In twenty-five plus years in real estate sales, she has experienced and successfully mastered working in all types of markets; rising, holding or over-saturated. It is easy to sell in a strong market but it takes experience, knowledge, understanding and hard work to manage a market that has some challenges. Dorothee has consistently been a top producer in real estate sales and has co-owned a Real Estate Company with Terry Moore. She has been actively involved in Real Estate Board activities on a local and provincial basis serving as a long term Director, President and as a Provincial Instructor.
Dorothee's clients refer to her as an excellent listener, great negotiator and a diligent agent who pays extra attention to all the details in a real estate transaction.
Her objective has always been to get people from where they are to where they want to go as seamlessly as possible.
TERRY MOORE is committed to the Real Estate profession and her clients. Her teaching background in the public and private school systems initiated her sense of professionalism as well as honed her organizational skills that are required for her high standards of client care. Terry's exceptional listening ability to perceive and precipitate her clients needs and wants assist those clients in making their best buying and selling decisions.
Terry, initially licensed in Real Estate in 1991, swiftly moved to the top of the ranks as the Provincial Realtor of the Year for her International franchise. As is often the case with Top Producers, community involvement is an important factor for Terry and she has served as a Director and Committee member of her local Real Estate Board.
In 1993 Terry and Dorothee teamed up with their own successful Real Estate company and a year later Terry discovered Victoria when receiving a National Award. . . the rest is history!!!!
With an unbridled sense of enthusiasm for Victoria and a passion for her work, Terry works tirelessly to fulfill her clients' Real Estate dreams.
Worthy of Trust
Our heritage reinforces the need to safeguard our customers' interest. We keep our promises and behave with integrity at all times.
We believe the best way to gain clients is to earn their trust. Our goal is not simply to attract them, but to gain them as clients for life.
Respect for Each Other
We maintain an environment where innovative, service oriented associates work collaboratively to exceed our customers' expectations.
We strive to anticipate our clients requirements and proactively provide them with the best possible advice to create solutions to their Real Estate needs.
So, here we are, all moved and settled in at our new home. However, it wasn't as simple as it sounds, and we can definitely say that we would not have the home we love without the help of Terry and Dorothee.
We hired them to sell our townhouse in March 2011 . . . a very bad time in the selling market as it turned out. However, they were always encouraging -- always actively trying to sell our house -- always having Open Houses and, more importantly, always had encouraging words for us. Over the next several months, we relied on them for valuable input and pep talks and just plain friendship.
When the sale happened, we offered on a home that we wanted and we thought all was well. Due to our bank's error, we found ourselves without a home!!! Terry and Dorothee told us not to worry; they would fix things for us. Through many overtime hours on their part, we ended up with a new home to offer on, a new mortgage and two really good friends.
Terry and Dorothee were invaluable to us. I can't stress that enough. Although many people say "I'll recommend my agent to other people", we can truly say that we will (and have already been) singing their praises -- we will NEVER recommend anyone else.

Since our arrival in Victoria three years ago we have bought two homes and sold one all with the help of Dorothee and Terry. Their market knowledge and patience made all three transactions both smooth and entirely satisfactory. We value their continued friendship.

Terry and Dorothee, your honesty and understanding were just what I needed to make a scary but necessary leap in the Real Estate market. I couldn't have done it without the strong confidence I felt in you. With you by my side it was no longer as scary! Every question was answered even when you were busy with a million other things. You never made me feel like a pain or that my concerns were ridiculous.
I knew exactly what I wanted and the parameters were tight but you never gave up keeping an eye out for me even though it seemed like "my home" was never to be found. I have to say that you really understood what I was looking for and that you listened so well and really heard me. I could have made some unreasonable choices but you looked out for me and as Terry always said, "you will know it when you walk in the door". Well, a few months later, there I was. In my home. You knew and smiled. I knew it and smiled. That it was it. I didn't even need to say "yes". You knew exactly what I wanted and needed. The best part was that I knew it was not just a sale to you but that it was like a friend celebrating with me!
I have never been happier. I love my home and will never forget that you brought me here. My only problem now is that I never want to leave my property! Even after the sale, your support was over and above and I honestly feel that not only are you the best Realtors ever but you are two of the best people I have been lucky enough to meet.
Anyone lucky enough to find you in the time of a house sale or buy will find out what I mean for themselves. My family and I are eternally grateful for fulfilling our dreams and leading us to our sanctuary. Thank you for all that you have done, all that you knew and truly caring about us.
Kary Salvador and family
We were in the unique position of needing to sell two houses and find one with a suite that would allow us to provide care for our mother. We needed to find the suitable location before listing our houses and yet required quick sales of both properties.
Dorothee and Terry did an outstanding job. They took the time to completely understand our needs and provided superb guidance in identifying appropriate listings. After fully researching suitable properties, they ensured the process of purchasing our fabulous new home was seamless.
With two properties to sell, they diligently marketed both houses starting with Open Houses in the first week. Terry's amazing photos and Dorothee's highly effective descriptions featured our properties in their best light. Their knowledgeable, thorough approach resulted in numerous showings and quick sales of both properties.
From the appraisal of our properties, preparing the houses for sale, fielding of offers through to the sales Dorothee and Terry provided all the information we needed and respectfully guided us through every step.
We would highly recommend Dorothee and Terry for your next real estate transaction.
