About Exceed Realty

When Terry began his real estate career in summer of 2009, he came in when the housing market crashed and knew that it would be a challenge to work during one of the most volatile housing markets in recent memory. Never one to balk at a challenge, Terry worked hard, perhaps harder than other agents and came out on top while other agents were struggling.

Prior to real estate, Terry was a Houston area school teacher for 9 years, teaching in Cy Fair, Galena Park, and Crosby. He then went on to receive his masters in counseling and education and worked as a high school counselor for 5 years at Westfield High School in Spring ISD. Terry's teaching and counseling background greatly benefits his clients as these are skills that he uses every day as a realtor: he teaches his clients about the real estate process and then he counsels them on what their best options may be.

Terry also feels that his expert negotiation skills and his knowledge of Houston's housing market are better than most, and that many of his clients appreciate his patience and understanding. "I listen to my clients and have worked with a variety of home buyers, sellers and investors. I want my clients to refer me to their friends and family so I make sure that they are satisfied with the job I do for them."

In addition to working with buyers, sellers and investors, Terry has also facilitated successful short sales and foreclosure transactions, as well as new construction and relocation services.

Terry is an e-PRO certified agent and has lived in Houston since 1994. When he isn't busy helping clients, Terry enjoys writing music and singing.

Question and answer

Q. What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

A. Yes I am always doing continuing education development and I go above and beyond the amount of hours that are required by my license. I think learning and continuing to learn is the most important thing one can do in any profession.

Q. Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.

A. For buyers my service is free.

For sellers, In real estate everything is negotiable including commission. I'm willing to negotiate a reasonable rate based on the time and scope of the work required to help you accomplish your goals.

Q. How did you get started doing this type of work?

A. I was a school teacher for mine years and high school counselor for five. I always had an entrepreneurial spirit. In 2004 I lost my sister and her two children in a fire. I took some time off from counseling in 2007 and began taking real estate classes. I liked it so much I decided to stay. I'm still here.

Q. What types of customers have you worked with?

A. Residential Home Sales
I help buyers find homes that are best suited for their needs based up on their wants and needs. I help to negotiate the best terms and make sure the process is going smooth through closing and I help them after the sale.
For sellers I help them determine best price for their home, I market their home online and offline, I help them find a buyer willing to pay the highest and best offer for their home, and I help keep the process going smoothly through the closing and beyond.

Q. Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?

A. I recently helped a client sell her home for $50,000 over the listing price, and sold the home in one day.

Q. What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

A. Do your research. Find a Realtor® who has time to work with you. One who will return phone calls and will give you the attention you deserve. Find a Realtor® who is not afraid to ask questions because it is virtually impossible to know everything. Find a Realtor® who is internet savvy. There are a lot of realtors out there today who have not kept up with technology and that gives them a distinct disadvantage. Find a Realtor® who will work hard and will listen to you.

Q. What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?

A. I truly believe that the majority of real estate agents want to do the right thing for their clients. Just like all professions there are definitely bad eggs. But while I can't speak for everyone I can assure my clients that their best interest is always my top priority. I will always give advice based on what's in their best interest. I will either confirm what they already know, offer new information, or stop them from making a bad decision. Sometimes that advice is not always what they want to hear. But I'm not trying to win a popularity contest. I'm trying to help then make sound decisions based on facts.
