The Partnership Whiz

Talk to her about: Realtor® Association network partnerships, Association Executive webinars and the Association Benchmarking Report.

Terry has been in the real estate industry for 45 years, honing her chops straight out of college when she worked for her father’s real estate company. She’s gained real estate knowledge in Illinois and Florida, as an Association Executive. She received her CAE in 1986 and earned her RCE in the very first class of the designation and in 2012 she was the recipient of NAR Magel award of excellence. Here at REAL Trends, Terry is the director of association network membership.

Terry’s responsibilities range from communicating with the association network members, selecting topics and details for webinars, as well as trafficking banner ads. Outside of the office, Terry attended more than 10 years at the International Balloon Fiesta crewing for Stars Over Champaign until she flew off a 50-foot cliff on a snowmobile at which point her Board of Directors insisted on vacation approval.

She enjoys a relaxing lifestyle, enjoying sunny days by her pool and movies where things blow up but there is always a happy ending. Although the Florida sun is addicting, traveling to Italy may be in the cards as she dreams about connecting with her grandparents’ family abroad.
