About Me


I'm a big city escapee myself... bolting 17 years in the film industry in Los Angeles to the beauty and serenity of Oregon. After living in big cities most of my adult life, then hitting that mid-century milestone, I realized the older I got, the more rural I became - craving that seemingly elusive balance between work and play.
Today I wake up every day, thankful I came to my senses in time!

So, if you're feeling the same frustration with the urban sprawl and city masses, or even just looking to find a more private city setting to help you find life's balance... I'm your girl. I'll help you find your new getaway while simultaneously selling your city home.

Or, if you're doing the same thing I did - pouring through all the properties on the internet from out-of-state, and looking to unload your truck right into your new country getaway - I have the special tools and contact referrals to make it much easier. Like Lewis & Clark, I've already blazed that trail!

I'm a firm believer in your "right to shop", making sure you have addresses to drive by and prescreen properties and neighborhoods. The power of the internet for shopping and marketing properties has totally altered real estate acquisition, enabling so much more information at the fingertips of buyers and sellers. It is a tool I have embraced with enthusiasm. I pride myself on being internet savvy, consumer rights oriented, and offer complete and comprehensive service via internet communications.... not only with listings alerts, but with other data such as plat maps, well logs, zoning regulations and other issues that affect your decision to purchase. 

You'll find I have all the patience in the world when it comes to you selecting a new start in life. It is, afterall, your life, your cash. So you set your pace, and I adapt to it. Most of my buyers, since they are seeking lifestyle changes, are often with me for 1-2 years before finding that perfect country getaway. I work on loyalty with my buyers, and do not believe in obligating you to contractual service. Since agent/client relationships are personal, I believe life is too short to force a relationship that is not freely given.

Sharing this important personal investment decision is a humbling task. It's not a job you casually dole out to strangers. So please... allow me the opportunity to earn your trust and confidence. I'll come to you, listen to your desires and dreams, help quell your fears about septics, wells, underground tanks, and the mysteries of zoning restrictions. My goal is to calm your nerves, demystify the process, and help you take that step toward a life not revolving around stress!

And, if you're looking to sell your city dwelling as well, I'll show you some of my extraordinary marketing tools, guaranteed to give your current home maximum exposure.. AND the personal marketing touches it deserves!

"NOT ONLY IS SHE EXTREMELY COMPETENT AND KNOWLEDGEABLE, SHE MAKES THE HOME-BUYING PROCESS FUN!" As first-time home-buyers, we were nervous about finding an agent to work with. We wanted someone who we could trust, someone who would really take the time to explain the process and what our options were. About 30 seconds into our first phone call with Terri, we knew she was just what we needed! Not only is she extremely competent and knowledgeable, she makes the home-buying process fun! She is always quick to respond, and willing to go the extra mile. Even when we had all but decided on a house (which we wound up buying and loving!) she patiently took us to see a few more places to help us feel more secure in our decision. We're so happy we found her, and we definitely recommend working with her! Corey and Patsy
"YOU DID EXCELLENT FOR US, ALL THE DIGGING, FIGURING OUT-CALLS-EMAILS-TEARING OUT YOUR HAIR AND BITING YOUR TONGUE!" Dear Terri We have had quite the year long relationship. You did excellent for us, all the digging, figuring out-calls-emails-tearing out your hair and biting your tongue! I will recommend you to my friends. Thanks for all your hard work. This week is our 4th Saturday in a row hauling stuff here - I am pooped but love the place. Hugs Marji and Lawrence Vance
"SHE UNDERSTANDS WHAT IT TAKES TO MOVE PROPERTY." Anyone who is serious about wanting to buy or sell property should have Terri Fiyalko for their realtor. Her experience works for her clients. Terri is so hard working and knowledgeable. She does a great job from excellent photography and presentation through the final paperwork. She understands what it takes to move property. Dianna Fitzgerald
"SHE LEFT NO STONE UNTURNED OR QUESTION UNASKED." Terri was absolutely terrific. Although we had been working with her for over a year as we planned our move from Colorado to Oregon it came down to 3 very short weeks to find us a home. She was simply amazing!!! She was so thorough and dedicated that we purchased our home sight unseen (except for pictures) based on her recommendation. [Note from Terri:... and *please* don't make me pick a home, sight unseen, again! My nerves couldn't take it. LOL] Thanks to her organizational skills and dogged determination we closed in three weeks from start to finish. She left no stone unturned or question unasked. It was a dream and a pleasure working with her and we will recommend her to anyone considering buying (or selling for that matter) a home. We could not have done it without her. Rodger & Ellen Kitson
