I have spent my life in "helping professions" and my 15 years in Real Estate as an Agent and Broker have proven to be no different!

I received my BA in Elementary Education from the University of Miami and my first career was teaching in a migrant program for children in rural areas near Miami, Florida. Following a move to Houston, I spent many years as an Executive Assistant and Paralegal.

Then on to Austin where I began my Real Estate career in 1981, became a Broker in 1983 and was consistently a Top Producer until my move to California in 1990. I returned to school and earned an MA Degree in Negotiation and Consulting and was a trainer and consultant with Oracle and other Bay Area firms. That training has helped me negotiate top dollar and terms for my clients whether buying or selling.

I've been back in Austin since early 2004 when my husband and I moved to Lakeway and I began my second career in Real Estate. In 2009, I received my Broker's License again and opened my own Brokerage, Austin Curb Appeal Realty. I love it as much as I did the first time and don't plan any more changes!

I have a daughter who owns an Insurance Brokerage in California and a daughter who works for the City of Austin. When I'm not out with clients, I'm out on the tennis court, walking, reading or surfing the web.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Austin, TX.

Terry was fantastic! At the first house we looked at, we discussed in more detail what we were looking for and in the next 2 days we had a list of excellent choices. We settled on a house she had found for us even before the open house had happened. She was very fast at finding properties as they were becoming available. After viewing the house, we signed the offer papers that day. She also provided some insight as to what we could negotiate with and how. In all, it was a very pleasurable home buying experience!  More Less

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in Lakeway, TX.

Terry and I met about 5 years ago via email. I live in a Kansas City suburban area and wanted to find a second home to visit in Austin. I specifically wanted to be near lake Travis and have this home be where I retire in the future. As Terry continued to search and search for the perfect family home for us, we closed almost 2 weeks ago on a house in lakeway. It is like a dream come true. Terry helped us through every part of the process. We are so lucky to have had the opportunity to work with her. She went above and beyond what a realtor should HAVE to do. The amazing part is - she was always willing to do MORE. I cannot thank her enough!!  More Less

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in Austin, TX.

Dear Terry, Just wanted to take the opportunity to express our gratitude for all your assistance throughout our buying process. Your local real estate knowledge and attention to detail was invaluable from the home selection, offer, inspection and closing processes. One can only imagine how difficult it is to come to a completely new place and have to find a home in three days and I’m glad you were here to help me. It was only possible because of you. You are everything that one can ask for a real estate agent! Thank you!  More Less
