Although a 5th generation Chicagoan, Terry’s heart was always in “the West”. So, finally in 1986, along with her two children and mother, she was able to make the move to Colorado and never looked back! There’s a bumper stick that sums it up for her: “Not a Native, But I Got Here as Soon as I Could”.
Professionally, Terry has been a highly successful global consultant for over 30 years. Her philosophy/passion has always been to take the best care of her clients that she could: advising them, guiding them, supporting them, and even befriending them – always with their best interests as her goal. That same passion and care is what she is now bringing to her real estate clients. It’s the reason she’s here!
Terry has made her home in the Southwest Metro area for over 30 years - currently she shares that home with her feisty Siamese cat, Chai-Tea.

Where would you live other than Colorado?
That’s a hard question, but then again it isn’t. I’ve had the privilege of traveling the world primarily because of the work I did and living for a time in many places. I’ve loved Australia, Asia, Europe, Canada and so many other beautiful places - all with their unique offerings. But each and every time I come back, the moment I catch sight of OUR Rocky Mountains from the plane window, I know where my heart really is - COLORADO.
How do you spend your free time?
My interests have always been somewhat eclectic and diverse. Truth is I can get interested in almost anything when I have a reason to. Time with family and friends tops the list. The one constant is that I have to be creative or I go crazy. Sometimes that takes the form of stained glass art, writing, or interior designing (I love to reconfigure spaces), and researching my genealogy. I love reading (historical novels, etc.), old movies (film noir, etc.), horses, camping, rafting, and generally just being outdoors preferably in the mountains.
What are you three favorite Colorado must see spots?
- Rocky Mountain National Park,
- The Collegiate Range (it was the view of them from the back of a horse at about 12,000 feet that made me first fall in love with Colorado),
- Black Canyon of Gunnison, and
- Glenwood Canyon.
Okay, I know that’s four, but it’s hard to stop!
