Terri Wamba is Right at Home at PSA

Meet Terri Wamba, Admin Manager in our Hockessin Office Sales Center. Hailing from a customer service background, Terri thrives on tending to the details of our agents’ listings and sales. Her role as an admin brings her joy, as each completed task is a testament to her dedication and a source of personal accomplishment. She’s the friendly face welcoming you to the office and working behind the scenes at every Hockessin potluck. Let’s dive deeper into her journey and experiences at PSA!

What brought you to PSA? How did you grow with the company?

In 2003, my family was transferred from sunny California for Delaware, and that’s when I joined the Patterson-Schwartz family as an agent’s assistant. To help out, I obtained my real estate license to host open houses and handle office tasks.

I loved the industry, but soon realized I was a natural at behind-the-scenes work—inputting listings, writing remarks, mailings, you name it. I was approached about helping out as a weekend receptionist which evolved into helping the Hockessin admin team in the afternoons and eventually turned into a full-time gig.

This role fits me like a glove. The regular hours, diverse tasks, and logical progression of work are right up my alley. Plus, hearing tales of the agents’ wild transactions made me value the calm rhythm of my job. It’s been a fantastic journey and I wouldn’t trade it for anything!

What were the early influences that shaped your work ethic?

My first two jobs, McDonalds and Disneyland in the 70s, were with companies who had high standards of customer service which molded my attitude toward the customer or guest experience. Now, I strive to bring the best attitude and same attention to the work I do for our Hockessin agents. 

What sets PSA apart as a company? How would you describe the culture?

I feel right at home here. It’s the perfect fit with everyone committed to providing the best home buying or selling experiences. The collaborative culture here is felt every day, with departments working together for the betterment of each other, the agents, and our clients. It adds to my enthusiasm each day! I appreciate that our company’s standard of service encourages all of us to seek a positive outcome.

What do you do when you’re not at the office?

I spend most of my free time connecting with family near and far. I’m grateful for modern technology that makes connecting easier. Whenever schedules align, my husband of 41 years and I take to the road; whether it’s to visit our parents in California or our kids and grandchildren in Maine, Maryland, or our own home sweet home, Delaware.
