Escrow Officer, Teri Patterson, has been a part of the Alliance Title team for 3 ½ years. While she has spent most of her career with Alliance Title in the Fruitland, Idaho branch, Teri recently relocated to Alliance Title’s Nampa, Idaho branch. What she enjoys most about what she does is working with people and helping to eliminate the stress of the real estate closing process. Teri explains, “I get to meet the most amazing people doing what I do. The closing is like the cherry on top – we always have fun.”
Teri has two favorite Alliance core values: Service and Trust & Respect. Teri says, “Service because I really enjoy giving better service to our customers than anyone else out there gives. I love going above and beyond and having everyone be so happy at the end of the transaction.”
When it comes to trust and respect, Teri says, “I am very proud of the trust that my clients have in me. They all know that if I don’t know the answer to a question that I will find out and get back to them in a timely manner. Trust has to be huge with my book of business since moving out of the Fruitland office. My clients in Payette County have had to trust that I would still take very good care of them and their clients and we would figure out each closing location as they come.”
Ronald Reagan is the person that Teri admires the most. She expounds by saying, “He had class. He knew how to speak and he represented America in a respectful way all over the world.”
Outside of the office, Teri loves spending time with her family. Teri says, “I have a son who is currently taking over the family ranch outside of Caldwell with his wife and baby. I’ve always been very active in the Angus association and raised my kids showing cattle locally and nationally, so I get my ‘cow fix’ by visiting with him and enjoying his accomplishments. If you ever need an Angus bull, I can set you up!
My daughter and her family live in Springfield, Missouri. She is in marketing and is the most amazing person I know. I am so blessed that God gave her to me to raise. Her husband just started his own engineering firm, so they are hoping that after a couple of years they can move that business to Idaho. (That is my biggest dream – to have my family back home.) They have two kids which I love to spoil. United Airlines loves me because I can only go so long before I just have to have a grandbaby fix. So, a couple of times a year I visit Missouri.”
Teri also enjoys 4-wheeler riding and camping with her family and her dog, ‘Kat.’ She builds furniture with rustic barn wood and logs in her spare time. She has a remarkable garden and loves to help feed the community.
“Get up, brush off and get on with life” is Teri’s favorite quote. She says, “Life is going to throw you challenges every once in a while. Just get up and get on with life because whining isn’t going to solve the problem. Learn from the experience. Sometimes those challenges become blessings on down the road.”
