Letter of endorsement for Terry and Connie Dorsey
I have served in the United States Army for over 28 years. In 2007, I purchased my dream home from the Dorsey Team while stationed at the University of Utah ROTC department. My tour there lasted two years and my wife and I moved throughout the country. My children entering college at the time elected to stay in Utah and live in the house. Recently we decided to sell the home because the chances of us returning to Utah were slim to none and my children have completed college. We again turned to Terry and Connie to assist us. The service that we received was above and beyond what my wife and I expected.
The house was put up on the market on a Friday, within 8 hours I had an offer that was above asking price that I would have accepted. Within 36 hours, I had 6 offers, all at asking price or above and the house went under contract. This was amazing to me but the service that Terry and Connie provided didn't stop there. There were multiple items that needed to be fixed by the seller, I didn't know anyone in Utah so I turned to Terry for assistance. Not only did he have the issues repaired to standard he had them repaired at a very reasonable price. Terry kept me informed of every step in the process and he stayed engaged with the buyer's agent at all times. Within a month we went from initial walk through to closing.
One week before closing, the pluming in a bathroom sprung a leak. I called Terry again, and again for the second time he had a professional plumber out at the house to fix the issue. Two days before closing the garage door quit working, the next day Terry had someone out to fix it. I started to look at the Dorsey family as family friends versus my realtor because he was going above and beyond my expectations at every step of the process.
There is no question in my mind if I am fortunate to move back to the Greater Salt Lake area who I am going to call to assist me in purchasing my new home. Terry and Connie have earned my business and I highly recommend them to anyone who is interested in buying or selling a home.

Connie and Terry:
I would like to thank you both for the tremendous help you gave Bonnie and me during our recent home buying experience. You both were very professional and knowledgeable throughout the entire process. When we needed question or documents you responded quickly and in a timely manner. During the entire process you communicated extremely well and kept us informed.
As you know, I was a former partner in one of the largest real estate marketing firms in Sou8th Florida, before moving to Utah. I had the opportunity to work with some of the top real estate professionals in the country and I would put you both in the same class as those elite real estate professionals. You made the home buying process easier – which is no easy feat.
I would recommend you both for anyone interested in buying a home. You understand the needs of the buyer and in our case you did what you could to match Bonnie and I with the right property. From negotiating the contract, to helping through the mortgage approval process to the day of closing you were both available. We are so excited with the end result.
Thanks for being our realtors.
Larry and Bonnie M.
I had a home in Salt Lake that I sold 5 years ago. I wish I had known Terry and Connie Dorsey at that time. The realtor that I listed my home with was nice but did not begin to compare with Terry and Connie. They are absolutely the BEST.
I moved to California and lived there for 3 years and then decided to come back to Salt Lake. My husband and I drove to Salt Lake to look at homes and had a long list of places we wanted to see. Terry spent hours driving around with us to look at all of them. When we decided on one, it became a little difficult to handle all of the paper work needed to buy a home while living in another state. Terry and Connie handled so many things for me. It was a great relief knowing they were there for me. It is hard to find people like Terry and Connie in this world today who actually care about their clients and are committed to being so professional. They treated me like family. When I had my home inspected Terry was there in the house with the inspector since I could not be. He also kept in close touch with the mortgage company and paid attention to all of the necessary documents that I had to fax and pushed them to keep on track for a closing date.
If you are thinking of buying or selling real estate and need a realtor – look no further. You will not be disappointed with Terry and Connie Dorsey. As I said before, they are absolutely the very BEST.
I would like to thank Terry & Connie Dorsey with The Realtypath organization, for the help, guidance and hard work they delivered relating to the recent sale of my father's house in central Bountiful.
My association started with Terry & Connie close to 5 years ago. They were instrumental in giving input & direction as to our options on the house after my dad passed away and it became my responsibility to manage the home as part of his estate. At that time I made the decision to repair & upgrade the house with an eye toward renting it out. Terry freely gave his time & expertise during that process. He became an ally and invaluable resource.
When the decision was made, early this year, to sell the house, Terry & Connie were the natural choice as agents to assist with the task. They were very professional, knowledgeable and accommodating in the way they helped guide me along this course of action.
It was reassuring that their years of experience in the real estate business, professional reputation, coupled with access to the latest market information, trends, conditions & valuations, put them in a position to make the sales process smooth and successful. They completely handled the myriad of details, paperwork, forms, industry requirements & regulations.
Their sales strategy, execution of that strategy, and follow through resulted in a sale that closed just barely one month after the listing was posted, and for a price that was well within my expectations. I would not hesitate to use them for any future real estate endeavor and would whole heartedly, and without reservation, recommend them to anyone considering buying or selling a home or property.
Dear Terry and Connie,
This is a letter of endorsement and recommendation for your real estate services. My family could not be more pleased. You were professional in every way. You were familiar with the area and helped us decided on a price that was right on the mark. We appreciate it. We would highly recommend you to anyone wanting to buy or sell their home. Thank you again for all your hard work. It was a pleasure working with you.

To anyone thinking of buying a home,
We wanted to write a letter of recommendation for Connie Dorsey. A few years ago we had tried buying a home and it seemed like every Real Estate agent we tried just added us to a general mailing list and then asked us to let them know when we’d found something we really liked. When we started looking with Connie there was no comparison to the quality of service, time and attention she gave us.
It only took us two outings to find the perfect home for us. She was very flexible and honestly made us feel like we were the only client she had (we are sure we weren’t, but it was nice to feel that kind of special attention). Connie was very quick to return our calls and often times she was calling us with the next step of the process which made the experience feel very well planned professionally executed. She was also very informative of the buying/selling process and took the time to educate us on areas we didn’t feel as clear on.
We got everything we were looking for in a great neighborhood and couldn’t be happier.
We recommend Connie and Terry to anyone even considering looking for a home. 5 stars, 2 thumbs and whatever else we can say, she was it. THANKS AGAIN CONNIE!
David, Kristen, Aida and Henry L.
My husband and I are first time home buyers and were so lucky to have the Dorseys’ help. We bought a house contingent on a renovation and they were wonderful to work with as we went through several months of work on our new home. They were quick to respond to questions and made sure to keep us in the loop as negotiations were underway. We felt well taken care of through the process of buying our new home. Our only regret is that we won’t get to see Connie and Terry as often now that we have closed on the house! Thank you so much for everything.

Letter of endorsement
I am a happy client of Connie and Terry Dorsey. Connie was our agent and she is the kind of person I would want for a sister. She was never tiring, or at least appeared to be never tiring, of showing us homes over a 5 month period. She was great to answer questions and follow up on all the little details that needed taking care of. I would readily recommend her to anyone who wants a low pressure but efficient sales representative.
Terry was very helpful in searching out information and helping us establish a value for our houses, the one we bought and the one we are selling.
They make a good team.
I also wanted to write and comment on your service and effectiveness as our agent
Every time we called to see houses, you were there. And you were prepared, with all the info we needed about every house we saw. You were untiring in taking us around to see homes. (You even showed extra houses!)
You were always cheerful and pleasant. I felt as if you wanted a home for us as much as we did.
You were capable, and knew all the necessary realty details we didn't know. You were honest with us and didn't hide the difficulties we might be facing. I appreciated that, because you weren't just trying to talk us into something that afterwards we would find out all the truth about. With you helping us, we knew always right where we stood. That's what made it possible, and helped us to wait for the "short" sale.
To the end, you have been of great help and even great comfort to us.
Terry & Connie
We know it’s been a while since we’ve moved in to our home, but we hope it’s not too late to express our thanks for all your help in getting our home. We love the neighborhood and we love the house more and more everyday! Thank you for your patience with us, and helping us get the home ready for inspection. You were there for us every step of the way. Our first-time home buying experience was very positive thanks to you two.
Again thank you,
Maiko & Robert S.
To Whom it May Concern,
Years ago, we worked with a realtor to sell our home. Basically, we did all the work and she got
the commission. That was not the case recently as we worked with Connie Dorsey. From the time
we expressed interest in listing our home until all was finalized, she made us feel we were her only
client, though we knew she had several deals going at the same time. She gave us ideas to help
stage our home and helped us see what we couldn’t see that would be helpful to attract potential
buyers. She made sure our home was exposed to all the right people. She was there for us to ask
questions and if she needed more information to satisfy us, she researched it out and got back to
us quickly. Her response to other realtors was timely and professional. She was also on top of
issues that could be potential problems. Her approach was hard work and looking out for our best
interests. She was definitely worth more than the commission she received. I would highly
recommend her to anyone, knowing she would do the very best job possible.
Wendy & Kent B.
To Whom It May Concern:
We are writing to express our pleasure with our real estate agents, Terry and Connie Dorsey, who represented us in our recent purchase of a single-family home in Clearfield, Utah. This was our first home and the Dorsey’s were savvy, personable, honest and knew the market inside and out. They were always willing to answer our questions to the best of their abilities or refer us to someone that would have an answer.
Terry & Connie guided us through the entire process and were always patient with helping us search for the home that we wanted. They understood completely when we needed a break from looking for homes but were ready to start up again when we were ready. As we went through the process we felt like we were spending time with good friends. They did a wonderful job in making our home-buying experience fun, smooth & as stress-free as possible.
With our hectic schedules we had to look at houses at uncommon times of the day. Connie and Terry always did their best to make us feel important and to worked with our schedules so that we could see the homes wanted to see. They were always so accommodating and let us take the time we were comfortable with to choose the home that was for us. Both of them where very intuitive of our reactions to each home and never tried to pressure us. They gave us their opinions when asked and were never intrusive.
To reiterate, we are nothing but pleased with and thankful for the Dorsey’s and without hesitation would recommend Terry and Connie to anyone looking for an enjoyable home-buying experience.
Jordan & Shelly W.
I’ll never be able to fully express what an asset you and Terry have been to us throughout this entire home buying process.
Eddie and I had no idea what to expect since, as you know, this was our first time buying a home.
Right away we were so overwhelmed and stressed by everything we needed to do and all of the information that was
given to us. You were so helpful in explaining everything step by step so that we weren’t blindsided by anything.
I especially appreciate your patience. I know at times we weren’t the easiest couple to work with but you guys hung in there and made us feel at ease. With you there’s a sense of comfort and understanding.
Our Kharma loved you right away and I think that speaks volumes about the kind of people you are and
the care you have for not only your clients but their families.
I’m pretty confident in saying that there’s no one like you in this business!
It's been a long road since we began in September but five months later and we have an
amazing first home and an even more amazing interest rate! I’m so excited to start our lives in our new
home and I’ll always be grateful to you for making it all possible.
Thank you so much,
Shonnie, Eddie and Kharma N.
As first time home buyers we found the process of finding and purchasing a home to be very intimidating and somewhat confusing. Finding Terry and Connie Dorsey changed all of that and actually made home shopping fun and stress free. We were able to find the home that was a perfect fit for us and Terry and Connie walked us through every step of the process. Never once did they make us feel we were inconveniencing them with questions or requests for their time. Most importantly, we found people that we could trust implicitly to put our interests first and advocate for us throughout the process. We feel truly lucky to have found such wonderful people to assist us with purchasing our home and will absolutely be giving them our business in the future. Thank you again Terry and Connie.

"When making a major financial decision like buying or selling property it is critical to have great information and advice.Terry Dorsey's experience and professionalism will serve you well if you choose him as your next Real Estate agent.From analysis to marketing to financing he can help you get the best. The next time you buy or sell Call Terry FIRST, you'll be glad you did, I always have been."
I have known Terry Dorsey for about 20 years and in my experience over the years, I have found him to be very honest and hardworking. Terry is knowledgable and is fantastic to work with. He has been in the industry for a long time and knows what he is doing. I would send any family and friends to Terry without question.
"Terry is a very conscientious person. He listens to his clients and does his very best to get to know them so he can fill their real estate needs. It did not take him long to assess us as people and find what we were looking for. I would hire Terry again in a heartbeat. He is very reliable and makes you feel like your time with him is important. Terry is all about taking care of his clients and seeing that their needs get fulfilled. Terry comes highly recommended in my book!"
Trish Van D.
What can I say, you are such a blessing in our lives. We got through all the snags because you are so on top of everything. We just can’t say enough good about you and Terry. Our heartfelt thanks to you both.
Your company needs a big thanks also for a great Christmas Party.

She does a fantastic job and her clients love her.
I feel totally comfortable recommending Connie to my clients because I know she'll
take great care of them and handle their transaction with professionalism."
Dear Connie Dorsey
We are so grateful for your continuous support & excellent work in helping us to sell our home & purchase a new home.
This was our first experience in selling a home & our first experience in trying to find a home to fit the needs of 3 teenagers & us. This was a lot different than when we looked for a starter home 20 years prior. As I researched how to go about selling and buying a home I learned quickly how important choosing a good realtor is, especially with the housing market being so volatile.
We interviewed many realtors & quickly recognized that years of experience matter but more so is that person’s working knowledge base. We also saw that just because a realtor can say I have sold a large number of homes doesn’t tell you that they would be focused on you as an individual client & be your advocate.
When we met you we were impressed with your honesty, professionalism & knowledge. We were impressed with you from our initial contract & remain impressed with you & your work.
We always felt you explained things thoroughly, intelligently & always took the time to make sure we understood things. Your knowledge of the real estate market is superb & we always felt good knowing that you were looking at all aspects of the situation.
For many these factors alone would make you an excellent agent to work with. For us however, these factors are impressive & definitely noteworthy; yet it is your compassion, determination, & ability to connect with your clients that make you an example of what excellence in a realtor looks like.
You made a point to get to know our needs, desires & what was important to us. It was very clear to us you cared about making this experience as stress less & easy as possible. Even our teenagers noted how you made them feel like their feelings & needs were important.
We felt you consistently focused on & saw what was in our best interest. We knew that we could trust you & your advisement. There were times we didn’t initially see your suggestions as correct but went with them based on trust & every time in the end the results were positive & in our best interest.
We know that when we found you it was not an accident but an answer to our prayers. We know that there are angels among us that come into our lives & leave foot prints on our souls to remind us how blessed we are.
Thank you for leaving footprints on our souls & showing us dreams do come true!
From our hearts to yours,
Bill, Michelle, Josh, Jeremy & Jessi T>
Dear Neighbors and Friends:
I want to share with you my experience of working with Terry Dorsey during the selling of my home. Quite simply, I highly recommend him to you, should you ever need real estate services. I have known Terry for 10 years, and I knew when the time came to sell I had to give him a call! From day one, Terry put my needs first. He was always responsive and sympathetic; left no detail uncovered, and had high standards of excellence. In my past real estate transactions, I never received this special kind of service. Terry’s knowledge of the real estate market is obvious. He was able to answer all of my questions and gave me great advice as I made my decisions. I wanted to sell my home quickly and get full market value. Terry was able to get my home under contract with a great offer from a Buyer in 30 days! I was glad I called Terry. His marketing skills are second to none and he is a wonderful resource. Call him at 801-809-1890 and tell him you want to have the same great experience as Judy.
Eric and I would love to thank you for all of your help as we were trying to find a home. You showed us so many houses and never once made us feel like we were inconveniencing you. You were so helpful and always followed up on the things that we had questions about. We were most grateful for the fact that you didn’t try to sway us one way or another on any particular house. You truly wanted us to find the house that was perfect for us and we knew we could trust you to take the very best care of us. We will absolutely use you for our next purchase and just want you to know how thankful we are that we had you on our side for this big transaction. We will also recommend you to any and all of our friends since you were so amazing. Thanks so much Connie!
Eric & Allison O.
I’m late getting this written, but I have to give my opinion on the services provided by Mr. Terry Dorsey. I started out as for sale by owner with thoughts of making the big bucks and cutting out the realtor. After a month or so of little activity, 3 showings, we got in touch with Terry. We had talked with several agents who all wanted to list our house and seemed to pressure us. Not Terry. He gave us his information and explained how he was the best and the way things would flow with his proven system, and then told us to call him if that was the way we wanted to go. My wife and I decided to choose Terry. We were immediately listed on numerous websites and other locations. We had an attractive sign in our yard. With his knowledge of the market, we set a target price and went from there. Mr. Dorsey kept in communication with us, letting us know when showings were or how things were going. He would discuss the price with us based on other similar properties, but always let us choose. With the market the way it was it took a little longer to get an offer we could accept, but ours was the only house to sell in the area since September. Some have been for sale through other realtors for 6 months or more with no success. Terry and his team of professionals got the job done. I would recommend Terry Dorsey if you want to have a good selling experience and have success. I was so pleased with the service that I treated Terry and his wife to a dinner at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse. This was optional of course. Good Luck!
TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:
"Connie was a complete delight to work with - I knew from the moment I met her that I wanted
her to be my realtor because of her down-to-earth personality and evident drive to serve. When she matched my enthusiasm and showed she was willing to go the extra mile with me to find the right place, I was thrilled. Then I was impressed by her depth of knowledge as well as her patient nature as she walked me through the process of purchasing my first home. I felt she had my best interest in mind, so was confident the entire time with her by my side."
Take care my friend. Thanks again for everything.
Terry Dorsey is the best real estate agent that you will ever find. I should know, cause I went through a few before I met him. He goes the extra mile in everything that he does. He is always available to answer questions. But most importantly he really cares about your family and getting the best deal for your real estate transaction. You'll find that once you've dealt with Terry you'll want to include his family as part of your family.
We are so excited to say we sold our condo after it being on the market for just 9 days! We are also on our way to our dream house, and we owe it all to Connie! She has really been an amazing realtor. We came to her telling her we wanted to sell our condo and buy a house ASAP. She offered to meet with us that day! We met her one evening at 5:00, and by the next morning when we woke up the condo was in the MLS system, pictures and all. She goes above and beyond to do things not only quickly but also very adequately.
This experience has been so relaxing and stress free, because Connie has a way of making you feel very comforted and assured. She’s very friendly, personable, and sweet. We both agree we could not have found a better realtor.
We will be referring everyone we know to Connie. We’re so, so glad someone referred her to us!!
Jeff and Mandy S.
To whom it may concern:
I was asked to give a testimonial on the services I received from Connie Dorsey. I couldn’t be happier to do so.
Connie is a very personable person with a happy and positive disposition. When I contacted her to let her know that I wanted to place my home on the market she immediately went to work for me. She came to my home to go through it and let me know her recommendations on what to do to give me the optimum price and quickest sale. I went to work to do those thinks that she recommended. Connie listens to your questions, comments, and desires and then gives you her advice based on years in the Real Estate business.
Long story short, within 3 days of my home being on the market I had an offer to buy. The following day I received another offer. So by the 4th day of my home being on the market, it was sold.
Connie Dorsey was there for me every step of the way. She states that the market is slow right now and that I was just a fluke, but I don’t believe that is true. Her honest advice on what to do to get the property ready, along with her hard work and mine is what sold my home. I personally would recommend everyone to contact Connie Dorsey to take advantage of her services.
Sincerely and with warm regards,
I want to thank you for helping me find my house! You made it all so simple, all the terms and figures…everything; you were able to say it in a way I could understand. This kept me from getting frustrated and overwhelmed. Thank you for the work and effort you put in while we were looking, I had looked for a house last year to no avail and the realtor I used was so hard to get in touch with and took days to get back to me, but you were always on top of everything, calling back the same day or e-mailing. On top of all this, I’d like to thank you for your support and readiness to help during the sorrowful time my family has recently endured with the passing of my step-dad. I will most certainly call on you should I need a realtor in the future. Until then I’ll be telling everyone who come in my way, and needs a realtor, to go see Terry and Connie Dorsey.
Thanks so much,
To Whom It May Concern:
Recently, my husband, Dean, and I had the opportunity to work with Terry Dorsey as a realtor. From the first day I approached Terry (at his home!), he was completely accessible and willing to do everything possible to help us find the perfect home for our needs. I was grateful for his insight and his depth of knowledge of the real estate business, and for the online helps he provided through daily updates on homes available in our price range and specifications. He was quick to return calls and emails to answer questions and give information. When we were ready to start looking at homes, he was professional and friendly to all we came in contact with. When we ran into glitches, he was there to calm our worries and work out the details. When we found the home we wanted to buy, it was to our advantage that Terry knew the other realtor and had a good working relationship with him.
All in all, from the beginning stages of determining what (and where) we wanted to buy, to the final step of signing papers for the home of our dreams, Terry was always positive and eager to help in any way. We would recommend his services to anyone needing a competent, reliable, knowledgeable realtor. Thanks, Terry, for everything!
Lisa and Dean B.
Phil and I would like to thank you for being such a good real estate agent for us in selling our home on Claremont Dr. in Bountiful.
You advertised it well on all the available internet web sites as well as flyers and in the various meetings that you would attend with other agents. You were always well prepared when you held an open-house and would point out all the good features of our home to people to help them see that it could be a good home for them. You also were always so willing to come and help us as we remodeled the basement. That is one thing that I don’t think other agents would do and we appreciated your help so very much. It was a stressful time for us.
You were always willing to listen to us as we voiced our concerns about the house and what would help in selling it and gave us good advice. We would recommend you to anyone looking to buy a home or to sell a home. You are very dedicated to your career.
Thank you again for all of your help and for your friendship.
