Terry was absolutely terrific to work with. From listing to closing, Terry was on top of every detail and made for a very quick and amicable transaction. She did a tremendous amount of research to find the perfect price point so our property wouldn't linger. Her creative eye for staging and pictures was amazing. She knows all the right people -- from trade and service people to mortgage specialists, appraisers, attorneys -- to make the sale happen expeditiously and harmoniously. There's only one realtor I would recommend, and that is unequivocally Terry Jacobus.
Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $150K in Highland Falls, NY.
Terry helped me purchase my first house. I had no idea what I was doing and Terry walked me through the process step by step. She helped me negotiate a wonderful deal for my house and I was able to close on my house with no questions or regrets, I would highly recommend Terry to anyone looking in the Hudson Valley!
Terry is a pleasure to work with. We've been looking for a second home in Ulster County for over a year, and while we haven't yet found the right house, Terry has been a terrific resource, an eager and intelligent guide, and a very ethical and patient agent. She is genuinely more interested in finding us the right place than in just selling us a house, and has shown us more places than we can count, always in good spirits and with as much of the inside scoop on each property as she can ethically give us. We highly recommend her if you are looking for a home in Ulster County.
UPDATE: We finally found our spot in New Paltz underneath the 'Gunks. Terry continued to be very helpful, patient, ethical (it was her listing), and professional all the way through the process. And as a bonus we made our first friend in New Paltz!
Bought a Single Family home in 2008 for approximately $275K in New Paltz, NY.
Throughout the home buying process, Terry was responsive, timely and supportive. Particularly because we were first-time home buyers, we relied on Terry to help us understand the market and see the real value in each property. She was able to explain the entire process and guided us through each step.
Because of Terry I know we made the right choice when purchasing our home.
Terry helped us find a perfect home for us. She listened to our needs and found a suitable house that matched our requirements. Terry was helpful through all phases of relocating - finding a home, guiding us through the process, connecting us with local resources (lawyer, decorator, and painter).
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $400K in New Paltz, NY.
I had the pleasure of knowing Terry as a teacher before she became a realtor and was happy to see her pursue another field that she seems to love just as much as teaching. She really understands the local market and works for her clients. She is definitely not a 'hands-off' business person. She makes herself available nearly 24-hours a day and gets excited when her clients find what they want. Definitely recommend her services if you're house shopping in her area.
