Teresa was born in Toronto, Canada, but grew up in Montgomery County, MD, until she went away to Andrews University in Berrien Springs, MI, where she received her B.A. in English. Teresa has been in the real estate industry since 1996. Before immersing herself in real estate, she taught at a university in South Korea for five years before coming back to the Maryland area to pursue her interest in the legal system. She ended up working for a real estate attorney before moving on to become a licensed settlement agent. Teresa then went to work on the lender side, managing the pre-underwriting, closing, and post-closing departments. She became a licensed real estate agent in 2004, working as a Long & Foster agent before joining Northrop Realty as Creig Northrop’s Senior Sales Partner. When she’s not working, Teresa enjoys spending time with her husband, daughter, and two dogs. She loves photography, cooking, baking, watching movies, and traveling.
