Teri Hays is a Senior Escrow Officer III at Alliance’s Nampa, Idaho office. She joined the team in 2010 and has been in the escrow industry for 14 ½ years. Her primary duties include working with and educating realtors, lenders, buyers and sellers to close real estate transactions.
Of the Alliance Core Values, Teri’s favorite is “Service.” She explains, “I love going above and beyond for the clients. I especially love making the closing room a fun, less scary place for the buyers and sellers. I want the buyers and sellers to know exactly what they are paying for through closing and what exactly they need to do after closing.”
When asked whom she admires the most, Teri admires her mother. Despite her mom’s difficult upbringing as a teenager, her mother actively sought change, made things happen and supported herself by the age of 15. “Instead of staying in that situation, she educated herself while being a young wife and mother of 3 small children,” recounts Teri. “She had various jobs that eventually led her to managing a branch, mortgage department and becoming a loan officer.” Her mom also believed that when Terri needed a career change, she would make a great escrow officer and “I’ve enjoyed this job ever since.”
Teri’s favorite saying is “Get up, brush yourself off and get on with life.”
Away from the office, Teri likes to spend time with her husband Allen and with her kids, grandkids and playing with her Border Collie named Sky. She enjoys camping, building rustic furniture out of barn wood and going on roadtrips to see her grandchildren whenever they can.
