Terry Smith began her career in real estate over a decade ago managing commercial buildings in the John Wayne Airport. During her time as a property manager, her goal was to offer above-and-beyond customer service and work diligently to treat people as though they were guests in her own home. This dedication to excellent customer service and warm, inviting attitude is what allowed Terry to excel when she eventually made the transition to residential real estate.
Terry has lived in the Newport Harbor area since 1964 and offers a wealth of insider knowledge that one can only get from a longtime local. She is deeply involved in the local community and was part of the founding group at Our Lady Queen of Angels church and school. She is well-versed in all aspects of the coastal South County area, including the school systems and business regulations, thanks to years spent raising her children and owning a business in Orange County.
Terry believes in the importance of giving back to the community she loves so much and is a longtime member of the Adoption Guild. She spent many years on the committee that ran their annual tennis tournament, which is the largest amateur tennis tournament in the country. She is also an associate of the House Ear Institute and has helped to raise money for deaf and hearing-impaired adults and children. Her experiences with these organizations helped sharpen her organization and communication skills, which she now uses to close transactions with professionalism and confidence. It is this combination of knowledge, experience, and dedication that makes Terry a truly exceptional realtor in the luxury real estate market.
