No sign, no open house; great marketing ! Sold… Terry did everything she said she would and more. Proof as they say was in the pudding. Thanks for a wonderful experience and as they say Patience! It was the right time and place.

After meeting her by chance at an open house many years ago, we’ve done multiple transactions with Terry and referred our family and friends to her. Terry is intelligent, friendly, and seems to have great working relationships with other realtors in the business. Her professionalism, pragmatism, and expertise have helped us navigate a couple of tricky situations as both buyers and sellers. Her client service is unparalleled; and is incredibly responsive and patient. Terry acted as a buyers’ agent for us for four years through a very difficult buyers market until we found the perfect home - and when we did, she had us walking through the property within a couple of hours and dropped everything to ensure we had a competitive offer submitted and accepted before the open house the next day. When selling our properties, she has ensured smooth transactions and secured over-asking sale prices. I highly recommend Terry!

When I walked into the real estate office, you were on duty, and I landed on my feet! I want to thank you for all the trouble you went to, to ensure I found the property I was looking for. You were constantly good-humoured and obliging, and ferried us (sometimes literally) all over southern Vancouver Island, from Sidney to Sooke to Nanaimo, in my quest for something that was 'just right'. In the end, you found me a house in North Saanich which ticked almost every one of the boxes I had listed. You followed up the sale and all that is involved in that with professionalism and patience. After we moved in, you were in contact to make sure that everything was working out. Thank you very much. I am happy to pass along my recommendation to anyone I meet looking to purchase in this area. You are an excellent realtor.

When our family embarked on the search for a new home in Victoria, we were seeking not just a house, but a special property with a captivating view that could truly feel like home. That's when we met Terry from Sotheby's – a name that now resonates with gratitude and fond memories in our household. Terry demonstrated exceptional professionalism and patience, guiding us through countless options, always keen to understand our needs better. Her deep understanding of the real estate market in Victoria and her ability to identify properties that matched our unique preferences were invaluable. The journey wasn't short or simple; it involved numerous property viewings and discussions. Yet, Terry's unwavering commitment and cheerful demeanor made the process enjoyable and less daunting. Her expertise and advice were pivotal in helping us make informed decisions. Finally, the moment arrived when Terry presented us with what is now our home. It was love at first sight – the property had the stunning view we dreamed of and more. Her dedication and hard work paid off, and we were thrilled to make the purchase. Throughout the entire process, Terry's support was comprehensive – from initial viewings to final negotiations, inspections by a range of professionals in her network and paperwork. She was more than just a real estate agent; she was a trusted advisor, a patient listener, and a problem-solver. Today, as we settle into our new home, we often reflect on how Terry made this significant life transition smoother and more enjoyable.

"Terry was fantastic to work with and made the process of selling my first home and buying a new home seamless. She walked me through step-by-step, offered great advice during negotiations, anticipated my needs, and took or returned calls quickly. I appreciated Terry's honesty and straightforwardness. She kept my priorities at the forefront of our interactions and helped me feel confident during the process. Her knowledge of the local market and good relationships with other agents resulted in my house selling quickly, and I was very happy with the outcome. She listened carefully to what I was looking for in a new home and found the perfect fit for my family. Terry went above and beyond for my family and was extremely patient and kind throughout. I highly recommend Terry to anyone."

" I chose Terry to list our home because I knew she would be sensitive to our specific needs and situation. I also appreciated her creativity and vision when it came to looking at places that would suite me for my next home. I feel Terry works intuitively with people and personally felt that she listened to what it was I was looking for and needed. The best part of my experience was first and foremost her honesty and integrity. I also really appreciated the enthusiasm and sense of fun she brought to the experience of selling and purchasing my home. I will absolutely recommend Terry to my friends and family."

"I engaged Terry to help me sell my condo unit. As a first-time seller, I really appreciated Terry’s advice and deep knowledge of the local market. She helped me choose the best strategy in terms of pricing, timing, etc, and as a result, my condo sold very quickly and above asking price. I found Terry to be hard-working, responsive, and professional, and would highly recommend her to anyone."
Gavin L., Victoria BC
Terry was everything we could have hoped for in a Real Estate Agent, and then some! As first-time home buyers, we felt very confident in Terry’s capable hands as she helped us navigate through our first home purchase. She truly went above and beyond the entire time we worked together - from spending time with us before we had even looked at any properties to go through all the documents and steps involved so we understood and knew what to expect when the time came - to using her expert negotiating skills to get us an accepted offer that was well under asking (in extremely challenging 2021 conditions, I might add!). Throughout the whole experience it was clear that Terry had our best interests at heart and gave us sound advice that landed us in our dream home! Thank you, Terry, for all that you did for us!

"Working with Terry was an absolute delight. Having just returned to Canada after 15 years overseas, she was an enormous help, not just in finding a home, but in negotiating all the tricky do's and don'ts of a home purchase. Terry gave us a great overview of different neighbourhoods, communities and even the mood and tenor of individual streets. She calls it the TLC treatment. I'd just call it the hassle-free way to buying in Victoria."
Scott & Elena, Oak Bay BC
“Terry is a bright, personable, results-oriented professional with an excellent grasp of the real estate market and a sincere commitment to respect her client’s needs throughout the selling or buying process. Terry understands service and typically exceeds expectations. She is diligent, hard-working and very motivated to help guide her clients through what can be an unsettling, major lifestyle decision. She was a pleasure to work with and we were thrilled with the results."
Bob & Pat, Saanich, BC
"We recently had the pleasure of working Terry as our realtor and she exceeded all of our expectations. From our first meeting, she took the time to listen to our needs and preferences, and tailored her services to match them. Throughout the process, she was professional, knowledgeable, and responsive; making herself available on our schedule as we visited from out of town to look at properties. Thanks to her expertise and hard work, we were able to find our dream home in a timely and stress-free manner. I cannot recommend Terry highly enough, and would not hesitate to use her services again in the future. If you're in the market for a new home, do yourself a favour and work with this amazing professional!"
