My daughter recommended Terri and calling her was the best call we ever made. ...a sudden decision to buy our first home coming off a year of total uncertainty and low stock of homes ...Terri made it a piece of cake!  She was always in contact with us, answered every question no matter how silly or stupid .........we started our adventure January 6 and closed on May 11 and she was there every step of the way including the closing!!!!  We will recommend  Terri, The Spark Team and Slocum Realty to everyone. .... we consider Terri not only a friend but now a part of our family!!!!  Margaret & Kelly

"Gayle was incredibly helpful and diligent throughout the whole process. She worked with us with all of our requests and guidelines and always made us feel comfortable. She was always available when we needed her and made us feel like a high priority."

"Terri has been our realtor for the selling of one home and the purchasing of two homes. She listens to the needs of her clients and works with them to find the home of their dreams, while respecting their budgets and timelines. Terri has a great network of connections in the industry and will always recommend 2-3 service providers that she trusts to her clients. This is incredibly valuable as she is staking her reputation on these referrals. Terri is fantastic and I would recommend her for anyone who is buying or selling a home!"

"During these special moments of buying and selling, Gayle has the compassion and knowledge in finding what you need most. She makes the time to be there from beginning to end in a positive way. Gayle shares her advice to help make your decisions look clearer. I am very grateful to have chosen her as my realtor."

Terri and Meredith from Slocum Realty were a pleasure to deal with and we highly recommend taking advantage of their experience and professionalism. They explained the process completely and applied no pressure from start to finish. The property was expertly marketed and sold very quickly. Terri made herself available for questions and always responded in a timely manner. Don’t hesitate if you want to sell your property, call Terri."

"Meredith is a first class real estate agent. She is knowledgeable, professional and answered all of our questions promptly. I would highly recommend Meredith Leblanc for all your real estate needs!!"

"Gayle referred us to an out of state agent when we were looking to purchase another home.  We ended up finding a new home very quickly. When it came to selling our home in Rhode Island, Gayle was always there for us, she was very patient and had answers to our questions when we needed them. If she  did not have the immediate answer she was quick to get back to us with a response to ease our concerns. Gayle will get the job done for you!"

"I wish I could give her more than 5 stars. Very knowledgeable about the Warwick area. She priced my house to sell well and at a reasonable price to both me and the buyer. She has a great amount of finesse and was always made sure I was answered promptly. She has a great partner who was able to step in when Terri had to deal with an emergency. If I was buying another house in the area I would have gladly used her. If you doing any real estate transactions she and her team are your gals!"

"Terri Abbruzzese is the best realtor I've had the pleasure to work with.  She took the time to completely understand our wants and needs.  Throughout the process we were allowed to explore many properties without question.  She was always available to answer any and all questions we had.  Once we  settled on a house, we acquired the best advice which led to the acceptance of our offer. Finally, she guided us through the paperwork process with ease all while maintaining social distancing rules dictated by COVID-19. Terri also assisted us with the sale of our house.  She employed the same professionalism and compassion throughout the entire process.  If you are looking for a realtor with the resources to successfully guide you through the entire process, Terri should be your choice." ~ Bob

"My husband and I were first time homebuyers navigating an unprecedented market during a global pandemic and we could not have done it without the help of Meredith. We cannot stress enough how much we appreciate her hard work and dedication to our home search. Meredith is prompt in answering any and  all questions and had our best interests in mind throughout the process. We can’t thank her enough!" ~ Danielle & Warren

"Gayle was very attentive to the type of house we were looking for. She was very supportive and never pushy just to make a sale. She explains every step of the way how the process works. She is available at anytime night or day. If we ever purchase another home she will definitely be the person we  contact. If you want a pleasurable experience then make sure you have Gayle on your side." ~ Lisa

"Not having previously sold a property in the US, we were literally going in "cold".  We interviewed 4 estate agents - all of whom we had not previously met.  Terri was among the candidates we were considering as she had been highly recommended by local residents. When interviewing Terri, we were  impressed by her responsiveness, local knowledge, and agility.  We appointed her to sell our house.  Within hours, Terri was on the case - organizing photos, completing paperwork, conducting auxiliary research, and sharing her specific recommendations to ensure our property presented well.   It was at the point when Terri was conducting viewings of the property that our confidence in Terri was cemented.  Literally, at all hours of the day and week, she made herself available to prospective buyers.  All this, in the middle of a pandemic and whilst maintaining the highest standard of professionalism in ensuring everyone's safety.  These precautions translated to independent viewings of the property as opposed to open houses.   Terri navigated brilliantly.   She landed us several offers and proceeded to orchestrate the sale.  She was always "on-hand" to help whilst we were overseas - going well-beyond our expectations and, on countless occasions, acting like a second pair of hands in helping to address requirements arising during the process.  She was in familiar territory when it came to understanding complex issues and putting things into perspective. She drew from her experience and could lend an objective voice. We cannot stress enough that we had not met Terri previously and took our decision based on recommendations and an interview.  We couldn't have been more pleased with the result.   Her agility, responsiveness, knowledge and experience were evident from the start. Terri literally "kicked the ball out of the park"" ~ Michelle

"Meredith is the best!!! Not only is she knowledgeable and professional, she is very patient as well. We asked a LOT of questions and she answered each and every one of them within minutes of each text. Thank you!!!" ~ Jodi

"Terri helped us to not only sell our first home but purchase our new construction house! She is very knowledgeable and very prompt to reply back with any questions and/or concerns we had. We will recommend her in the future to friends and family." ~ Melinda

"As a first time home buyer, choosing a realtor was my first big decision to make. My knowledge of the home buying process was slim to none and I wasn’t even sure where to start. Meredith was nothing short of amazing to work with. She walked me through the home buying experience and explained it in  terms that was easy For me to understand. She always answered my (many) questions with quick and friendly responses. She put my concerns first, and was great at negotiating to make sure that the home that I was purchasing was move-in ready and everything was in good functioning condition. I will absolutely recommend Meredith to all of my friends and family, and also put any of my future home purchases in her hands again!!" ~ Taylor

"Gayle assisted my parents and myself in buying our new home. Gayle was very professional as well as personable. My parents are elderly and Gayle was extremely patient. She listened to us about our needs in a home and was very accommodating in meeting at times that was convenient for all of us. When  we looked at homes Gayle asked very detailed questions of the seller, things that we didn’t think of at the time. We are very pleased with the service that Gayle provided and would recommend her to anyone." ~ Joy

"Terri was responsive, helpful and warm before during and after the transaction even through health issues that she had to deal with during the process. Highly recommend her and her team." ~ Emily

"Meredith is the best!! She recently helped me find and purchase my first home. She is very easy to work with, fun, professional and very responsive. Highly recommend!!" ~ MW

"I decided to sell my home by myself, but the buyers used Gayle as their agent. With my limited knowledge and experience, Gayle still was able to make the sale happen flawlessly. She was there to help with the process or answer my questions every time I needed her. Gayle's professionalism and  availability were unparalleled. I highly recommend using Gayle and the rest of her team." ~ MV

"Terri is as professional as they come. She has given us tremendous insight into the home selling/buying process, and is extremely knowledgable when it came to the different factors/situations we could encounter. She prepared our expectations well, followed through on everything we discussed, and  kept in constant communication throughout the entire process. Even though our property didn't sell (through no fault of hers) when the time comes to re-list, Terri will be our first call. My wife and I trust Terri and her abilities, and we highly recommend her to anyone in need of either a buying or selling agent. She's absolutely fantastic!"

"Terri was great when she listed my home. She answered all of my questions and was so responsive. She has excellent customer service skills and was always there when I needed her. I now consider her one of my friends and would highly recommend her to anyone I come across to get the job done." ~ Lori

"Terri was amazing with her help I was able to purchase my first home. She kept up with updates and was quick to response to any of my questions. Without a doubt she is a pros pro. Looking forward to my next purchase to contact Terri for her services." ~ Edgar

"If your looking to buy/sell your home I highly recommend you consider talking to Terri first! She is very professional, and kept me informed every step of the way thru out the selling process. She took care of each step before they became issues. Communication was key for me as I relocated out of  state. She's reachable and very responsive to emails, texts, phone calls etc. I never had to wait and wonder. Terri exceeded my expectations and achieved a smooth comforting sales process with my best interest right up thru the closing.  Don't waste your time with a realtor who will tell you everything and do nothing. She promoted my house thru all means including social media, and thru her efforts, I had an offer within 2 weeks. Terri truly goes above and beyond. I would recommend her without hesitation and I'm so happy I contacted her thru a friends referral." ~ Chris

"Top notch. Explained everything and kept me informed through the whole process. Made sure I was comfortable with my decision. It was like having a friend with me through the whole thing." ~ Kevin

"I bought and sold 2 single family dwellings with Terri.  She is a very positive force in the process and always does what's right for her clients.  She is very honest and takes away much of the doubt when putting together a deal as buyer or seller.  I continue to do business with Terri and  appreciate what she has done for me and my family." ~ Peter

"Terri is so helpful. She helped us buy our first home in July 2018! She listens to what you want in a house and she goes above and beyond to find exactly what you are looking for. She gives her honest opinion and she is always there when you need her. She's reliable, friendly and always so  pleasant. I'd recommend her to anyone looking for their perfect home! She has been more than a realtor, she's turned into a friend!" ~ CP
