Windermere Homes & Estates Welcomes Bill & Teri Garcia to the Team

Joining Windermere Homes & Estates, Bill & Teri are excited to be working with the leading brokerage in real estate technology. From their excellent reputation to their commitment to client satisfaction, Bill & Teri find that they and Windermere have synonymous views on service.

Growing up in Imperial Beach, Teri Garcia was an avid volleyball player, cheerleader and of course, loved the beach. As a child Teri always wanted to be a veterinarian, which led to an avid love of animals she still has to this day. Teri’s family had a short relocation to North Carolina, but ended up back in beloved San Diego.

Bill Garcia spent his early years growing up in Oceanside, enjoying his days filled with surfing and playing in his band. Bill’s early aspirations to be a rock n’ roll star led him to win a contest that allowed his band to open for The Doors for a year.

While both Bill & Teri always thought they’d live on the coast, they fell in love with the Lake Hodges area and the beautiful surrounding of nature that came with it. They settled there together and are current residents of Escondido.

Teri’s career in real estate started when she befriended one of the top producing agents in La Jolla. Through her mentoring and encouragement, Teri got her license in 1998. Teri explains, “It was the perfect career for me, I had worked in advertising and the home improvement business up to then. Both of which gave me great training to succeed in real estate. I have been continuously in the President and Chairman’s Circles during my career. I have worked hard to build a 5 star rating on Zillow with almost 40 reviews.”

Working out of the Escondido office, Bill & Teri work with clients all over San Diego County. Having been in San Diego for over 50 years, they are very proud that over 90% of their business is referral based, from Imperial Beach to Alpine and Valley Center.

“Bill & Teri are true customer service professionals.  They understand that their help can be what makes the client’s experience a good one, and they strive to achieve that with each and every person with whom they work.  We’re looking forward to working with Bill & Teri, and we’re happy they chose to join us at our Escondido location,” says Rich Johnson, co-owner of Windermere Homes & Estates.
