Terese began her career 26 years ago at the age of 20. By the time she was 22 she was a licensed broker and was running the company for her mother, Audrey Mondello, who at that time took a long-term leave of absence. This experience proved invaluable for Terese in gaining hands-on, life-long skills in business management, servicing clients and facilitating negotiations between buyers and sellers. Terese’s mother was her greatest mentor, who taught her that as long as you always adhere to the “The Golden Rule”, you’ll always feel confident in knowing you have done your best, regardless of the outcome. Terese has held a real estate license in California as well, where she gained experience in property management under the mentorship of a broker/property manager with 40 years of experience. She continues to list, sell and manage property in Dutchess and Columbia counties and has recently achieved her dream of earning a Registered Nursing degree. “I believe we should never stop challenging ourselves. In always striving to be the best we can be, we are able to provide others with a higher level of service that we can truly be proud of.”
Terese was amazing. We used her to rent then sell our cottage. She managed the property for us. She went above & beyond. She brought over flowers, fruit to take photos. She actually cleaned the bathroom at least once and cleaned after a dirty tenant. She is very nice and genuine. We had a previous realtor who we were not happy with. What a difference.
We live out of state and in the process of selling a second home in Red Hook. Since we live out of state, we decided to contact Terese Mondello from Mondello Upstate Properties to list our house. After receiving our phone call, Terese came over right away to meet us and look over the property. When we first met Terese, we found her to be very knowledgeable and was glad to know that she and her agency have sold several homes in the area. Since our first visit in the fall, she has remained in constant contact with us and keeps us posted in regards to each showing. We are really happy with Terese and her quick response to any questions that might come up and highly recommend her to other potential clients

I can’t say enough about the professionalism and caring that Terese and the Mondello family show their clients. I enjoyed it as a buyer and seller. I was also very impressed as Terese helped the aged seller's transition into their retirement. Terese is a GEM. She has my highest level of respect and confidence. I have and will continue to proudly recommend her and Mondello Upstate Properties.

Terese Mondello has been very helpful from the on-start with her review of my house prior to posting it for sale and providing a detail evaluation of a sale price. Shortly after posting the house on MLS, Terese set up an open house for reputable realtors in the area to see the house and make comments. This information was compiled and made available to us, the owners of the property. This was very informative in that we had presentation of reviews of the house and the property, and confidence that we were in the right price range in which to sell our house. Although the house has only been on the market for less than a month, we are satisfied that Terese will do all she can to bring a buyer to the table soon.

We love our new home! We had several specific parameters, yet Terese was able to we find the house we were looking for. We are so grateful to Terese and the entire office for their guidance and persistence.
