Teri Lewis is the most knowledgeable, helpful and professional person that I have ever dealt with in real estate!!! Your rating scale needs to go well above 10 for me to truly express my satisfaction with my recent purchase.James & Benjamin Wolfe
We would be extremely likely to recommend Teri Lewis as a real estate agent. Intelligent, detail-oriented, incredibly responsive, tenacious and extraordinarily caring.

Teri Lewis was super great, extremely knowledgeable, helpful, Nice to beat the band and wonderful to work with.Enrico Liva
We feel so fortunate to have had Teri Lewis as our real estate agent when we were looking for our house in Connecticut. She went above and beyond in every way to help us find the perfect property. Since we were searching from a distance, she provided us with, not only a FaceTime walk-thru of the properties, but also took detailed videos which we could review and consider. Teri was always quick to respond to our many questions and concerns which is of the utmost importance for us when looking for properties. More importantly for us, though, was how wonderful she was to work with which made our home buying experience a pleasure. Thank you Teri!Jill & Robert Mautner

Great serviceMichael Cooke
Terri was terrific. Very professional and thorough. A delight to work withPatricia Peoples
Terry Lewis was fantastic to work with and her attention to detail was a wonderful experience for everyone involved in the sale of our home. Travis ParkerTravis Parker
My husband and I can’t thank Teri Lewis enough for her tireless support and efforts to help us sell our first home and purchase our next property. On the selling side, she took the time to walk through our home and point out all of the things we needed to polish before listing. This step was a must as Teri sold our home in less than 2 days with multiple, above asking offers! Teri simultaneously worked to find us the perfect house within the area and budget we had been hoping for. (She knows the CT River Valley and Shoreline like no other!) Searching aside, her firm negotiating skills are what we believe really made it happen. The current market posed a lot of challenges for anyone buying or selling a home right now and we are just so grateful to have done it with Teri Lewis. We would recommend her to anyone, over and over again!!Erin Muldoon
Teri was absolutely terrific to work with. She navigated us through purchasing our first home in the middle of a global pandemic with kindness, precision, and expertise. Communication is a strong piece of why we enjoyed working with Teri so much. We had many questions throughout this new process and she took the time and care with us that we hoped for. Teri also was incredibly helpful to me as I navigated this process with my husband away from home for military training. She worked with us to make sure both of us felt included despite the distance factor and was incredibly accommodating. She consistently exceeded all of our expectations. We cannot recommend Teri enough!Casey M.
Buying a home , especially for the first time, is a bit of a daunting and scary undertaking. Teri understands this and supported and educated me through the entire process. Her advise, kindness, communication between me and the seller all made for a positive outcome in the end. I would hire her again in the blink of an eye.Amy Estabrook, Masons Island
Last year our family made the big decision to relocate. I was referred to Teri Lewis by one of her current clients. He said she was fabulous, and referral goes a long way with me. Within seconds of our initial conversation she made me feel relaxed, and in good hands. Not an easy feat for a first time home buyer. Teri was thoughtful, sensitive, honest and listened to our long list of ever changing needs in a house. We were a bit overwhelmed with articulating what we were looking for since we've never lived in a house.Teri gently guided us into the right direction, giving us a clear path to the right home for us. We looked (via FaceTime) at a few houses, and never for a second felt rushed. Teri alerted us, within minutes of posting, a listing that was perfect for us. She immediately set up an appointment after we agreed this was 'the one'. Teri was a genius! She knew exactly what we needed to win the bid. She came up with ideas that even my real estate friends were amazed by. She checked in every day to make sure we were surviving the most stressful time of our lives. The moment came when we received the news that we were chosen. Teri celebrated with us as we cried. It was a whirlwind soon after and she held our hands until the end and even after. Teri Lewis has been an angel for our family. We still thank our lucky stars that we found her. We will forever be so grateful.Kimberly Lutts
I would recommended Teri Strain Lewis to anyone looking to buy or sell their home. Her personality is positive, honest and engaging. She kept the process moving and on track by being thorough, doing more than was her responsibility and knowing the process for all involved.Dawn Parker
I loved working with Terri...very talented and I feel that she did the best job for me! I followed her advice and let her take the reins and everything went well!!! She never missed a beat...I would recommend her and I already have...Suzanne Simpsone
Teri Lewis and the WPS team are fantastic realtors. As first-time homebuyers, my wife and I were skeptical (read paranoid) at each turn, but Teri was our rock. She took the time to explain the steps and assured us that she had our best interests at heart. We even got an assist from her colleague, Heather Gagnon, who’s patient, friendly, and excellent at explaining realty law. My wife and I couldn’t be happier with our new home, and the service we received from the William Pitt Sotheby’s team. Thank you all!!Samuel Angles
