Where do we begin on this human dynamo because she lives by a mantra that states: “being a go-giver as well as a go-getter?” With that philosophy Terry doesn’t miss a minute in her personal or professional life. She was born in Houston and matriculated at Bellaire High School. Getting a running start on participation and involvement, she was a member of the Bellaire Belles, a drum and bugle corps and then was in the honor corps as senior hand bells.
Terry was the first one in her family to graduate from college, of course the University of Houston! She proudly points out that her daughter attended her graduation at 16 months old, and years later she did likewise. Perhaps a little known fact is that during college Terry had an Antique shop in the Heights on 19th street. The completion of college saw her go into residential real estate after chairing a home tour in Garden Oaks. A decision that 30+ years later has served her well since she is a One Career Real
tor and Sales and Marketing Specialist for Re/Max specializing in residential transactions with an emphasis on the Greater Heights area. Plus, we should salute her many honors, including being a consistent Top Producer, a member of the Re/Max Hall of Fame and a recipient of Re/Max’s Lifetime Achievement Award.
Joining the Chamber was easy for Terry, “I enjoy networking, giving back to the local community, lifting up others as they succeed in their respective career and life paths.” Her association participation is too numerous to mention. Suffice it to say that she holds memberships in all the state and local Real Associations and is a graduate of the Realtor Institute. She gives back through her involvement in local school projects for Garden Oaks Montessori Magnet School, is a founder of Heights POWER Network and has been active in the Garden Oaks Civic Club since 1981.
Terry’s family includes parents, a daughter, Becky, and the “absolute joy of her life, 2-year old granddaughter Bryn. She spends time at the Whistle Stop Inn in Smithville with her friends, putters in herb gardening, does Texas two-stepping and other enjoyable things. One of those is her long-time participation in the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo where she serves on the Breeders Greeters committee. And, don’t question her tractor driving skills because she enjoys being a go-giver as well as a go-getter driver!
