    • Terry responded promptly to my email request and came out to see me to discuss my options for listing the house for sale. Her calls reporting offers and meeting with her to negotiate on a contract were immediate and to my schedule. She kept me informed throughout the entire process and answered all of my many questions to my satisfaction. I highly recommend her to anyone wanting to buy or sell a house .

    • Probably the shortest time I've every spent with a Realtor! Found the house, negotiated, accepted and closed pretty darn quick! And smooth! I've never found a house that quickly before. Terry was there pretty much for the entire experience--sat through the entire inspection.

Coming from out of state to a new home, can be a nightmare under the best of conditions, but Terry made it seamless.

    • Terry was very responsive to all my questions and always got back to me with answers to every one of my questions. I would recommend her. She is a very caring individual.

      - Mary
    • Terry sold us our home 5 years ago. When it was time for me to sell I called on her again. I knew from working with her before that she had many years of experience and a lot of contacts. Sure enough, the house sold quickly and for more than the asking price. She has always been friendly, efficient, and professional. I would not hesitate to call Terry Bailey again.

      - reeneller
    • Terry was very professional and friendly.She came highly recommended and certainly proved that the praise was well deserved. Within 24 hours I had an offer. I was kept informed of the showings and offers. The home sold within one month of being placed in her capable hands. I can hardly believe my good fortune.

    • Terry Bailey is top star to our family! Her professionalism, caring, honest, and prompt response time to any request is why she is our #1 realtor! She helped make our dream of owning a home come true and for this we are forever grateful!

      - Sarah
    • Terry was an absolute blessing to work with for both the purchase of and the sale of our home in Florida. During both transactions my wife and I lived abroad, and during both transactions she really came through for us! Neither my wife or I were familiar with the area when looking to purchase our home when we moved to DeLand; but Terry was not only receptive to our ideas of where we wanted to live, but was also able to show us better choices than we'd considered. I would consider Terry Bailey an expert of homes in DeLand (and surrounding areas) and also being able to read her customer and matching their wants/needs with a home. I cannot stress enough how thankful I am having found her when considering both the purchase of and sale of our home in Central Florida!

      - C P Autobahn
    • She is wonderful! She was there every step of the way- found us not only our dream house, but a house that exceeded all expectations. She worked inside our budget, and the advice she offered was priceless.

      - j kinsey
    • We had been looking for a house for more than six months, we kept losing out to cash buyers, But we put an offer in on this house, and after the cash offer fell through Terry Bailey called us! It is perfect! Perfect house perfect location we love it!

      - rebekah fallahi
    • We've known Terry for more than 12 years. Bought our first 2 homes and old one recently using her. You cannot find a better realtor or person than Terry. Extremely proficient and if anyone can sell your home, if you are experiencing any issues, get with Terry and she'll ensure you have a pleasant sales experience

      - DeLand, FL
    • Terry is an excellent realtor! Her expertise of the area and in the real estate industry was so helpful in our home search. She was patient and insightful every step of the way. We are so thankful she was highly dedicating not only to finding us a home that met our qualifications but was also something we would really love living in in the long term.

      - DeLand, FL
    • We were very happy with the service provided us by Terry Bailey. She kept us informed throughout the selling process and brought us two offers in great time. She and her associate, Linda Hannon were always available to answer our questions.

      - g p lacroix
    • Terry works hard until the sale is closed. She is very knowledgeable about the area and homes for sale like ours. This is the second home Terry has sold for us. I highly recommend Terry to any potential seller or buyer.

      - DeLand, FL
    • Terry is the hardest working person I know. She is hands-on and I can count on her to do what she says. She knows her market and goes out of her way to produce the best results for her clients. Terry has been my realtor for several transactions.

      - l loadholtz
    • Great sales experience. Terry is very responsive and was always available for guidance or questions. I would definitely recommend her for a seller or a buyer.

      - D. Blair
    • We are repeat customers of Terry, in our most recent transaction, Terry arranged for us to view a property on very short notice and worked with the selling realtor to get our offer submitted on that same day. Terry's advice on making our offer strong led to it being accepted the same day it was submitted. We are very pleased with the level of service we have received from Terry and we would not hesitate to utilize Terry's services again (should the need arise).

    • Terry Bailey is a true professional who becomes your advocate and friend. She is always quite to respond..either by phone or in person with answers to your questions. She was my realtor 17 yes.ago when I moved to Deland.bSince then, she has served many other members of my family. They all loved her. This time, again, she listed and sold my home very quickly. I highly recommend Terry Baily and her very competent staff.

    • I have worked with Terry on finding a rental three years ago, and just recently in the purchase of my home. She is always accessible and very helpful. Terry knows the area well and quickly understands your needs in a home. She tirelessly found homes for me to see and was very patient with me while I made my decision.You will feel like family when you work with her.

      - L Hart
    • Great job. Terry is a shark, she never rest. She and Linda told us what to do, we did it and we sold the house in a month (during a hurricane). We got more than we thought we would. I wished I had more houses to sell.

      - jonclary
    • Terry Bailey, and her team got the job done for me. I was very impressed with how efficient she was able to navigate me through the process. She knows her stuff. She also is able to meet you half way on most any questions, so as to keep things moving along. I can appreciate her clear and concise nature. I would definately recommend her!

      - Matt Hillary
    • Terry provided a turnkey service that made selling my father's house from a distance a breeze. She was very business like and handled the small list of repairs needed after the seller's inspection. I would highly recommend her for being a buyer or seller representative.

      - SRH
    • Terry Bailey and her staff were amazing. Every time I contacted them with a request or a question they got back to me the same day or sometimes the next day. Her service is exceptional.My property was sold within a couple weeks!

      - beacobet
    • My husband and I and our adult son and daughter have all done business with Terry over the past 10 years, both buying and selling. We recommend her HIGHLY. You can't find anyone more knowledgeable in DeLand/West Volusia. She will never steer you wrong. She can and will guide you EVERY step of the way, ranging from helping set up financing to finding inspectors and contractors and so much more. She responds promptly by text, email or phone, even on holidays! If you are looking to buy OR sell, look NO further. We would never consider doing business with ANYONE else. And you shouldn't either!!!

    • Terry Bailey and her team did an excellent job and I would certainly use her again and recommend her without hesitation to anyone selling or buying. They were very prompt in answering questions and keeping us informed with feedback from all realtors and updates on internet activity. I interviewed five local real estate companies before picking Terry. As a former sales manager, results speak volumes about capabilities and Terry's results year after year demonstrate superior achievement in the real estate field.

      - nathan wlcx
    • Terry is amazing! She has actually been there with me every step of the way with this house in particular. Terry was actually my realtor when I first purchased the home just a few years ago. As a first time home buyer, I was nervous but she made me feel very comfortable and walked me through every little process so that I wasn't ever blindsided. This time, as a first time home seller, was no different. We were even able to sell the home from out of state which I thought would've been difficult but Terry handled everything for me and all I had to do was sign and send. Happy to be a repeat customer!

      - William Hollis
    • Terry is the most professional realtor in Volusia county. We have been working with Terry for over 3 years and she is wonderful. Always prompt, courteous and very knowledgeable about the market. She is an awesome asset to the profession. Thank you Terry!

      - tarponlady
    • Terry is the ultimate professional and her knowledge of the market is unparalleled. She patiently assisted us in our search for a home for over 18 months. She guided us as we charted a course into retirement with the possibility of caring for an aging parent. The "must have " list was always evolving as needs changed. The internet is a wonderful tool and I found many properties that I asked Terry to show me, but it soon became clear that looking online and seeing the actual properties was a very different experience. Finally, we turned over the reins to her and let her do what she is so good at. She found us exactly us what we were looking for and kept calm even when there were complications with the closing. We were very lucky to have worked with such a professional realtor.

      - klingen
    • Terry was very knowledgeable and helpful for an out of town seller. She helped arrange the carpet cleaning and the estate sale. It sold very quickly and I can't thank her enough for her hard work. Her team was amazing and very easy to work with.

      - Deland, FL
    • Terry and Linda were the listing agents on the property I purchased. I did not have a buyers agent. They did get answers to our questions quickly. Overall, it was a smooth experience.

      - Victoria Carr
    • Terry went above and beyond. As I was listing and selling the home remotely, there were many times Terry made the distance disappear, not only with regard to the transactions, but also with regard to various personal matters pertaining to the sale. She was quite simply wonderful to work with.

      - gordon mccray
    • Terry is a wonderful realtor. She never made us feel like we were pestering her, in fact, she went above and beyond with the time and help offered.

      - Shawna
    • Terry has been a realtor in the DeLand area for around 20 years.She is very knowledge and helpful regarding all aspects of purchasing a home. She worked very well with a relative of ours to help us purchase a home and the process was completed including financing in 30 days.I would recommend her highly.

      - NLP
    • Terry has helped me buy and sell a couple of houses now, and always exceeds my expectations. She is extremely knowledgeable and walks me through the buying and selling process with ease. Making a transaction as big and important as a home requires trust in your realtor, and I trust Terry completely. I wouldn't even consider buying or selling a property without Terry!

      - Mike
    • Terry did exactly what she said she would do to expedite the sale of our home. Her service was top-notch and we couldn't have asked for a better realtor.

      - joyce g
    • We Highly recommend Terry and her associate, Linda ! They were very thorough, kept us informed and did a great job of advertising the property. We can truthfully say we would recommend this 'dynamic duo' to anyone.

      - pat chartrand
    • Terry and Linda were great. I will use Terry again if I ever have real estate business in her area. Overall great experience. Took all of Terry's advice and our home sold in less than a week... Great Job. Thanks Terry

      - william grondzik
    • I contacted 3 different realtors in Deland to hire someone to sell my home. A realtor friend told me 3 questions to ask each of them. Terry answered all the questions without being offended (example "how much in sales did you have last year?) She and everyone in her office was friendly and knowledgeable. She was able to have someone go to the house to let the gas man turn on the gas, got someone to mow my lawn, which was very helpful for a long distance landlord. She sold the house and I closed within the month I put it on the market. She handled the closing and put my money in my bank. Thanks to Linda and Andy from her office too!

      - April Arnesen
    • Terry is very knowledgeable, makes certain that she does her research and works very hard for her clients. She has helped me purchase a home and sell property. I recommend Ms. Bailey to anyone needing to buy or sell real estate, in this area.
