Tell Us Your Story

We had previously found a realtor who seemed ill informed and never did any work to find us housing options and even with the options WE found he could never put in the proper work for acceptance.

When we kept getting over looked on our offers we chose to look elsewhere. I was recommended to Laura due to her being a hard worker for cases that are more difficult such as FHA. She was so proactive and went the extra mile to have us not only get accepted but close. Highly recommend her. She was awsome.

Edward Woodly III

Working with Laura was fantastic from start to finish.

Throughout the process of selling our home she was not only professional, thorough, and reliable but friendly to boot. Being somewhat particular sellers, she was flexible in tailoring her marketing plan to suit our preferences, and the photographer she hired was absolutely fantastic. We would absolutely rely on Laura again for any real estate needs we may have in the future and would not hesitate in recommending her to friends and family! Top notch!!!

Monte and Shelli Ratzlaff

I feel like I have a new Brothet after working with Tony!

We bought a second home on the coast and did it remotely. From the FaceTime walk through to a friend I can call for recommendations Tony was always ethereally for us every second and every step of the way. If you are looking for a home on SPI you can’t got any better than NextHome and Tiny Altermatt.

Margie Mitchell (Sales Manager)

I purchased a property using Tony, we are out of state and Tony came highly recommended.

Living I Colorado it was difficult finding the right property but Tony was very helpful and useful as our in town realtor. Very responsive to phone calls, emails, and text messages. Tony always went above and beyond with site walks and inspections, addressing questions with HOA and management companies, we 100% could not have done this transaction without the help of Tony. Highly recommend him, look forward to future deals with him.

Christopher Reid (President, CEO)

Laura was an amazing agent to have.

We were out of state and trying to find a place while only being able to do virtual tours. She did an awesome job of showing us everything in the houses, including how things smelled and any defects or issues. She was very straightforward and understanding of what we wanted, and also very easy to communicate with. She has gone above and beyond for the needs of our family, and in the end she found us our perfect home. We highly recommend Laura.

Aaron & Amber (Buyer/Parents)

Terry was a pleasure to work with, easy to communicate with, and took care of all the details of the transaction professionally.

We are in Indiana and have kept in contact via phone and email. He was wonderful the whole process.

I would highly recommend Tony for your realtor, couldn't ask for anyone better nor could we have done it with out his expertise. Thank you Tony! You are much appreciated!!

Susan Castillo

Robyn was always available and prompt to respond to our questions.

Bradley Farris (Physician)

Laura has been amazing through the whole process of buying our home.

She is extremely personable and professional and felt she had our best interest at all times. She kept us in the loop on any updates needed and answered our questions in a timely manner. I’m very happy we went with her and so happy we are in our home! I would definitely recommend her as an agent to anyone wanting to buy a house!

Alexes Alimagno Abaro

I could not have selected a better real estate agent than Laura Shively.

From our 1st phone conversation, she worked to get to know me as a person and what I wanted in my forever home. She worked diligently and tirelessly to find a home that fit into my budget, location, and needs. She worked morning, noon, and night by texting, me, calling me, and showing properties to me. She held my hand throughout the entire process and provided emotional support, because that's the support that I needed as a 1st time home buyer. She was also my cheer leader and was genuinely excited when I crossed the finished line. I love Laura! She's so AWESOME!!!! I would recommend her to everyone!

Dione (Condoll)

My son, Archie Alimagno, recommended Laura to us so that we can purchase a home closer to his family.

Laura helped us secure a home that is only 3 blocks away from my son and his family! Great job. In terms of communication, Laura was attentive to our needs and provide us with regular updates on the homes that we were interested in. She worked tirelessly to coordinate with Loan & Title personnel so that we can get first hand information that is easily understood. The entire process was difficult for us since everything is esigning this and DocuSign that, etc., but with her help as well as my son & granddaughter we got through it. My husband and I are in our 80s and not use to this type of signing. Final thoughts. Laura was patient and understand of our needs and had an excellent team that got us through this very difficult process. Highly Recommended!

Risha & Dante Alimagno

Tony knows the real estate business well!

Most importantly to us, he's absolutely there when you need him! He made sure we were comfortable with all aspects of our listing, sales contract, and closing. We are 100% pleased that Tony handled the sale of our property! Thank you, Tony!

Betty Vanzant (Business Owner)

Tony was great to work with while buying our condo in South Padre Island.

He was very patient when our first contract fell through and continued to show up several more condos until we found one we loved. We had a lot of issues with the closing but Tony was always right there communicating with us and helping make it as smooth a process as possible. We would definitely recommend Tony!!

Kim Maddux

We came to visit our family in March.

We loved the neighborhood in SPI comunity and decided to buy home here.Tony was referred to us by our doughter. He has wonderful personality, very professional, proactive and knowledgeable of the area. Transaction was smooth from beginning to the end. It was our pleasure working with Tony. We would recommend Tony without any hesitation. Dragan and Danijela M.

Dragan and Danijela Milosevic

I was very fortunate to have Laura Shively as my agent.

As a first timer, I felt most fortunate because she was able to help me understand the complicity involved and I received professional guidance every step of the way. Whether it is a person's first home or not, Laura has the knowledge, expertise and experience to make the process go smoothly.

Samuel Smith

Very knowledgeable and hard-working realtor, does an excellent job for us and as soon as he sells our commercial real estate we will be listing our residence with him,

Mike Caddell (Co-owner)

Tony was the most pleasurable Realtor we’ve worked with in any state over the past 40 years.

He is very knowledgeable, professional, with a very easy smile and laugh. You are a stranger with Tony, only until you shake his hand. After that, you become his partner, with only winning in sight. He has an excellent skill set, and no problem seems too large to overcome. Tony can make things happen for you, no matter the situation. I’ll never use anyone else in the RGV for my real estate needs. Give him a try - I think you’ll be very satisfied, like we were. He exceeded all our expectations.

Mark Bauer

It was my sincere pleasure working with Laura on the sale of my home.

The whole process exceeded my expectations, Laura is a total professional providing advice and timely paperwork processing to make the experience a breeze. I will be recommending her whenever possible to a buyer or seller in the Sacramento area. Thank you SO much Laura, you’re the bomb!

Chris Braun

Tony helped my husband Mark and I with our search of an investment property on South Padre Island.

This is our 2nd purchase on the island so we had a good base knowledge of how things worked but Tony definitely helped fill in the gaps. He is very knowledgeable on investment properties and the island and gave us suggestions and ideas of things to consider and think about. I would highly recommend him for your next home or investment property purchase!

Nicole Spirk

Had an awesome experience working with Sandy.

Our property sold in 1 week and we closed within a month from listing.

Martin Villarreal

Robyn was so accommodating, picking us up, showing us everything!

She was personable, knowledgeable, easy to talk to, never pushy. We bought the property we wanted at a reasonable price! Robyn made the process easy! We consider her a friend now & would not hesitate to recommend her & call her again!

Diane Farris

Laura was AMAZING!

She helped us sell our home and was the most helpful realtor that we have ever dealt with. She made special arrangements to assist us in our move out-of-state by contacting a realtor there to help us find a rental. She was always available, offered assistance over and above what a realtor would normally help out with and is a very nice person too! We would highly recommend her services!

Brent & Patty Claydon

Laura is absolutely amazing at what she does.

I went through three other agents prior to Laura, and thankfully I did. The fact that I am a Veteran and a first time home buyer combined created it's own stress point, howerver Laura helped mediate the stress and made everything extremely smooth. She was always very quick to respond to my texts or calls (and trust me I text and called a lot). I could'nt be happier with her as my agent. I am still in shock that I am a homeowner. And one thing to add as a cherry on top is the fact that she helped me purchase a home in a flat out sellers market. After multiple offers shut down by the prior agents, Laura made it happen. I will forever be greatful of her sharp skills and up-beat personality.

Lawrence (Service Manager)

I couldn’t recommend Laura enough.

She was great to work with through the whole process. She was very flexible through our hectic schedules with work and a toddler. She was always on top of things and helped keep us organized. She’s very knowledgeable in everything and when she didn’t have an answer to something she was quick to figure it out. We actually enjoyed meeting her each weekend to look at houses because she’s personable and fun to work with.

Denise Mackey (Restaurant Manager)

Robyn came to me on a solid recommendation from a close friend and I decided to give her a try in helping us buy a house in the south padre island golf community in Laguna Vista Texas.

In a very tight market, she guided us to our new home. Throughout the entire process she was very service oriented and not overly concerned about her commission. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a home in South Texas.

Michael Rose

Thanks for help us to buy the land she is really nice I will recommend everyone's who's looking property in area thanks again k will keep in touch for future work

Kulvinder singh (Owner)

Terry was awesome!

Did open houses relentlessly to get the condo sold. Hard worker and very considerate of any of our needs. Never drilled down on price, but was very hip on his market. This is a real estate professional you can really trust in every way. I highly recommend him to help you.

David Moore (Big Wave Dave)

Sandy was amazing!

On top of everything and always helping us keep on top of everything as well. Heart of Gold! Thank you again, Sandy??

Karla Arellano

Tony did a excellent job following up during the sale and closing process

Miguel Torres (Partner)

Tony is a kind and caring realtor.

Since I live out of town, he always went above and beyond to meet us at any day and time on a moments notice. I highly recommend him and will work with Tony on my next purchase at South Padre Island. Cindy

Cindy Salazar

In 35 years I have owned 4 homes - Terry helped me with my 5th - to date Terry has show the most professionalism with the sale of my 4th and locating my 5th.

He went above and beyond in his efforts representing me with the sale and purchase of my most recent residences. Diligent and dependable.

Michael Yewell (Homeowner )

We had a condo for sale on South Padre Island for almost two years.

We had been through two of the top realtors on the island and never had a serious offer and the realtors didn't really make much of an effort to market our property. When we switched to Terry Altermatt, he placed wooden signs out on the street when he had an open house and which seemed many times a week. We had a huge number of showings and our condo sold within about two weeks. Terry was very professional, a gentleman, low pressure to work with, and we would highly recommend him to sell your property quickly.

Mike Collard (Retired)

It was an absolute pleasure working with Tony on the purchase of my condo.

His professionalism, responsiveness and attention to my needs as a buyer are a few of the reasons why I will look to Tony as I grow my business. Tony worked around my schedule, and whether it was a weekday or weekend he was always a phone call, or text message away. Great partner to have in Real Estate! Highly recommend!

Mary Vicencio (EVP COO )

I appreciate the professional approach that I was treated by Rennetta Silva.

I have been looking at condos for4+ years, and she came across as though I was looking for the first time. Rennetta was easy to communicate with and always available to answer my questions and concerns. I would definitely recommend Rennetta Silva to future buyers.

Judy Lewis

Tony is a true professional in his chosen trade, easy to work with and very responsive to your needs.

Have had several transactions with Tony and am very pleased with the results. On many occasions he has gone out of his way to do me a favor. And by the way, for you ladies out there, he used to be a good looking guy until he grew that beard!!!!

oscar avila Sr (retired)

Great pleasure working with Ms Laura.

Honesty is at the top of her list along with friendliness/kindness, flexibility, knowledge, organization, dedication and more. Finding a home for my family was fun - frustrating at times but Ms Laura was there every step of the way keeping us informed & answering our questions. She's patient respectful and honestly cared about the needs of my family. We're happy to own our perfect home.

A real professional, and straight shooter.

So knowledgeable and responsive to our needs, Terry was great to work with. When right Condo listed, he was the key to getting offer accepted and closed, on a hot property.

Steve R

Robyn was very helpful to us in purchasing a condo in Texas.

We live out of state, so everything had to be done remotely. She was always available to answer questions either by email or by phone, and when she did not know the answer, she checked and got back to us with the information. I would recommend Robyn as an agent. She has experience and is easy to talk to. She also was kind and understanding with our long distance situation.

Barbara Minch (Real Estate Customer)

Laura is a very ambitious lady, she will guide you through the process of home buying.

Laura worked night and day to help us secure a home. She will definitely be my agent in the future...

Tony is conscientious and knowledgeable.

Great agent to work with!

staci petrillo

Terry is a great guy, a great realtor and did a great job selling my condo.

How can you beat having a contract signed even before you go to MLS? That's what Terry did for me. The virtual tour that Terry created was really nice. It showed off the beauty of my condo perfectly. Terry new the market and priced the condo perfectly (even better than what I was thinking). Terry is super easy to work with and was very quick to respond throughout the selling process. I highly recommend Terry if you need a realtor on SPI.

Kyle A Pratt

Terry was a total pro.

He returned calls promptly and handled every request. Having worked with countless realtors over the years, I know a good one from a bad one - and Terry is a great one.

Ron Wall

Tony did an excellent job selling my condo.

He hired a professional photographer who took perfect pictures and we had a full offer in less than 48 hours. Would highly recommend

Matt R

Thanks Tony for all the help provided, and good follow up till sales completed.

It was really nice working with you !

Joel gutierrez (VP operations)

While living in Wyoming, we decided to sell our South Padre condo.

Properties and principals in three states were involved, and Tony handled it all flawlessly. I was a licensed Realtor in Texas and California for 30 years, so I think I'm pretty adept at judging professionalism in the industry. Tony exemplified all aspects of that professionalism.

Bonnie Morley (Home owner)

Laura was AMAZING!

From the start she was very determined to help our family get into our first home! We had spoken to a handful of realtors agents before meeting with Laura and they were never patient like she was. We appreciate how professional and organized she was. Her efficiency was very amazing! We were able to learn a lot from the whole experience and very happy to have done so with Laura! Anyone needing an informative and assertive and super sweet, kind realtor, she is definitely the way to go! Thank you Laura!!! We love ya! ❤️

Gina Connor (Certified Payrol Administrator )

I don't even know where to begin.

..Sandy is PERFECTION personified!! I have never had a realtor with such drive, enthusiasm, honesty, integrity and down to earth love for what she does and for the help that she provided for me, her client, in finding the perfect property. She searched WITH me and we visited many properties and walked plenty of steps through the plots of land that I was interested in purchasing. There was a time when I was getting a bit discouraged, but her upbeat, positive personality is infectious, and she reminded me of my goals and not to settle until I found what I was looking for. She worked very hard for MY interest and represented me extremely well. Sandy was there every step of the way and was very involved with every aspect of the entire transaction from beginning to the end and beyond. She still checks in with me long after the closing has been done. I think that buying or selling with Sandy that anyone would find that she has a finesse about people and letting her clientele work WITH her and to not be overbearing and most certainly not pushy. I cannot praise her more. She is simply the BEST!!

Leslie Blasing (Owner of a beautiful waterfront property!)

Tony was a rockstar from start to finish on our journey to buying a vacation property.

He was patient, informative and experienced in the area- everything we needed! He stayed on top of everything even until the very last minute of closing. I would highly recommend Tony to anyone needing a great realtor!

Kristi Rendon

Laura did amazing!

We are a family with three rambunctious kids, hoping to make a move from our starter home to a home where the three could run wild. We are not investors, just a regular family trying to compete in this wild housing market. Laura was able to get our offer accepted, despite not being the highest offer, and despite being a contingent offer. Once accepted, we were on a race to get our home listed and in contract. Laura was patient, and even came over with her team to help us get the house ready to list. Our home was in contract a few days after listing. Laura is a miracle worker.

Elizabeth Angel

Laura and her partner Roy helped me through the process of getting my home sold (for Top dollar!

) and finding and purchasing my new home. They were very patient, professional, and fun to work with. Every step of the way it was clear that they had my best interests at heart. Best realtors ever!

Connie Wilson

Tony is one of the best realtors I’ve worked with.

He is responsive and attentive to every detail. I would recommend Tony to anyone!

Jared Reid (Blue Ridge Properties, Inc. )

Terry did a great job for us.

He knows the Island and really understood what we were looking for. We found exactly what we wanted! We purchased our condo without ever seeing it! Terry went above and beyond--making many trips--taking care of inspectors, repairs and even taking measurements. Terry always made himself available--despite time zone differences and my many calls/texts/emails! Terry is super responsive and has great follow up! Highly recommend Terry!

Laura Shively

In nearly 40 years of using reality services Terry Altermatt has been by far the best realtor I've worked with.

Prompt communication and employing the latest advertising technology were the keys to a prompt sale of our property. Additionally he kept a close eye on the market where we planned to move to and found the perfect place for us to buy.

Michael Yewell

Terry has been the best.

He stayed in touch with us. Made this buying process easy and fast. Would highly recommend Terry to all our friends. Thanks for your help.

Patricia Hawker

I cant say enough great things about Rennetta Silva!

She was so easy to work with, made the process smooth and fun. We developed a wonderful friendship as well. Even after closing, she still reminded me to turn the electricity on. If it wasn’t for her reminders, I would be lost! Thank you Rennetta! 🌺

Cindy Esquivel

Terry did an amazing job selling our condo.

He was always available, thorough and a trusted negotiator.

Christopher Metcalf

I purchased my first home with Laura and had such a good experience.

She was honest and guided me through each step. I learned so much in the process. Laura was patient and understood my needs. She was available whenever I needed her. For anyone buying a home, especially your first, I'd completely recommend Laura.

Shayal Prasad (Client )

Laura was a stand out real estate agent.

She made sure every detail was addressed. She helped guide me in the buying process and I ended up finding a fabulous place that I love. Additionally, she sold my home I was ready to move from in a quick manner keeping in mind the price I wanted and reassuring me through the process. Thank you Laura for all your many hours spent working me through the process of selling and buying.

Michelle Faure (Seller and Buyer)

Laura did a fantastic job helping us find our home.

She was honest, straightforward, and not trying to up-sell you on anything. She genuinely cares about her clients and puts in the effort to find your new home. She is very informative for new home buyers and helped me along every step of the away. She was always available for questions whenever I had them. We were able to close fast and without issue with the help of Laura! She's the best!!

Ian Coker

Laura goes the extra mile!

She always worked around our work schedule to show us homes . She is very personable and keeps you informed on everything! We had a lot of fun with her!

Thomas Sampley (School District Maintenance )

Laura is awesome!

- down to earth, very easy to talk with and understand. She did an awesome job showing us different properties going over all the pros/cons - asking us what exactly we were looking for to ensure she could find the right properties to meet our needs! Laura stayed on top of communicating with us every step of the way, being available to answer any questions at any time. She knows her stuff! - Laura was able to negotiate a 5,000 credit off closing cost for us!! - def recommend her to be in your corner when looking to purchase a home. Thanks again for everything Laura

Amber Stevenson (Leasing Consultant)

Tony is a great real estate professional.

He help me sell my vacation home quickly.

Luis Torres (Home Owner)

There needs to be 20 stars to rate Tony.

He was amazing on all levels. Never failed to help, get me answers and i count him as a friend I could call for anything. Tony is one of the best realtors I’ve had the honor of working with. Get your Next Home On the coast with Tony!

Margie Mitchell (Sales Manager)

Laura and her partner Roy were amazing they made themselves available all times of the day.

They went above and beyond to try and get us a house at a fair price. I would recommend them every day of the week and twice on Sunday.

Christopher A Caldwell (Assistant Manager)

Laura was absolutely fantastic and I highly recommend using her expertise if you are considering selling your house.

She has a terrific attitude, great ideas, and will go above and beyond the call of duty in order to sell your home. She completely knows the business and her knowledge made us feel really confident during the whole process. The fees she charges are more than fair, and she is definitely not a greedy real estate agent. It was a total pleasure to work with her. If you are considering selling in the future, call NextHome and ask for Laura's services. We were thrilled and I am sure you will be too.

Brent Claydon

Terry was the best realtor I have ever worked with.

Time did not matter to Terry Day or night he was there for any question you may have. And if he did not know he would find out asap. Thank you Terry you are the best. My Recommendation is a 10 gold star. Thank you, Dorothy Little

Dorothy Little

We had been upgrading another condominium for rent and a good friend suggested we call Tony to help us market it.

That advice was PRICELESS. Tony quietly deployed his "magic,” and our condominium was leased quickly. We stayed in touch with Tony and the next year it was time for us to move and sell our personal condominium. Of course, we asked Tony to help us. Kudos, accolades, praise, esteem, and distinction do not begin to describe the talents, skills, personality, and professionalism embodied in Tony Altermatt. Tony is much more than a Great Realtor. Tony is a friend, a trusted and respected member of team focused on the sale of your home as you, the owners, want it represented and sold. Professional photos expertly directed virtual tours, inspired descriptions on MLS listings and results that exceed all expectations. These wonderful experiences cemented our relationship with Tony and resulted in the sale of our top-rated condominium in record time. FIVE STARS are woefully shy of the RATING and RECOMMENDATION we are honored to give Tony Altermatt.

W.F. (Billie) Reilly & G.S. (Suzie) Warnock (Condominium Owners)

Laura is a wonderful realtor.

Laura proved herself by diligently searching the market to find us the home of our dreams. She looks after our intrests by reminding us of our needs over wants and ensuring that we didnt settle just to get a house quickly. She ask the right question from selling realtors and is amazing at seeing potential problems that a home might have down the road. She truely listens to you, ask you the hard questions, keeps us on track, reminds us of things we said to ensure that we make the right choices in picking a home. Laura truely cares for the customer. Laura is not about being a YES person, just to get a pay day. Laura wants to find you a home that you can enjoy with family and friends. I enthusiastically recommend Laura as a Realtor for you.


Robyn was very perceptive of my needs and helped me find exactly what I was looking for.

Thank you Robyn!

Jane Starr

Laura helped us in the purchase of our first home and she did an amazing job.

She really help guide us through the whole process. We looked at a lot of homes but she was patient and helped us home in on what we really wanted in a home. I would definitely use her services again.

Tia Thao (Home buyer)

He provided the best experience to date.

When we first started looking at properties, we found a couple that we thought would be great for us. Tony would then explain why the property would not work. You won't rent to winter Texans; 3rd floor. This one would not work; bedroom was right by the pool and so on. I gained trust very quickly. He was going to make sure we got it right. The property that we ended up making an offer on, already had an offer on it. He strategically worked with us until the other party accepted our offer that day. Our inspection turned up a few issues. Tony had a contractor out looking at the property on a Friday evening. He has been wonderful and I would recommend him to anyone. Great attitude, listened to us and ended up with our island forever home. Great job Tony!

Paul Bilunas (Terminal Manager )

Laura Shively is the perfect person when buying or selling your home.

She will be there with you every step of the way thru this scary process, to answer any and all questions you may have from the very start thru closing. Easy to talk with and very knowledgeable i would recommend Laura to anyone who is thinking about buying or selling a home .

We met Tony to help us look for an investment property in South Padre Island, Tx, not knowing him prior to this meeting we did not know what to expect.

Well we were over the top happy with his dedication to help us through many many showings and make it work with our schedule every time! We were a remote buyer after the showings and he went to the property many times to answer questions and send us videos as needed to help us feel comfortable. We highly recommend Tony as his laid back and friendly approach coupled with his knowledge of properties on the Island are outstanding! Bill and Kim

Bill Bistline (Owner WWS Denver)

Robyn is a wonderful person.

Robert and Hilda Manuella (Home owners)

Robyn was a complete professional and extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of real estate transactions.

She answered all of our questions in a timely matter and offered her advice freely. She made repeated phone calls on our behalf and we are eternally grateful for her assistance in helping us close on our newest investment real-estate project. Would highly recommend her services to friends and family.


Laura Shively is amazing!

She fought for us to get a house especially during this crazy market. Laura cares for her clients, treats them like family and is very responsive. 10/10 recommend.

My husband Tom and I were first-time home buyers and we couldn’t have asked for a better realtor to work with than Laura.

She is extremely savvy, kept us well-informed, and after finding us the house of our dreams - she did everything in her power to ensure a smooth closing. 10/10 would recommend hiring Laura to help you find the perfect home!

As first time homebuyers, my husband and I had an amazing experience with Laura.

She worked extremely hard to get us the perfect house and was always available when we needed her. She always listened to us and kept our best interests in mind. We would highly recommend her!

Tony Altermatt was an amazing person to work with.

We came from Colorado for a vacation and had decided to look at properties. We contacted Tony before we went down so he had a good idea what we were looking for. The entire week we were there, Tony went above and beyond for us to ensure we found the perfect property. During the whole process of closing, since we were in Colorado, Tony continued to go above and beyond to make the process as easy as possibly on us. Tony not only saw us through the entire process, he continues to be available for us with whatever questions we have about South Padre!! I highly, highly recommend working with him! You will definitely not be sorry!!

Laura did a fantastic job.

She is responsive, honest, and ethical. She will tell you what is good and not good with a property. The best thing about Laura is that she is hardworking and relentless in ensuring her client's get the best service from start to finish. She keeps in touch consistently to make sure documentations are submitted and approved. She will get the deal closed !!!!

We first met Terry 4 years ago looking at houses, it did not work out then but when we found a house he was our first call.

Terry went above and beyond in every way, lead us through the process, and with his help it was seamless. Terry answered all of our questions and helped with getting us in front of the people we needed to talk to. Because we are out of state Terry was our go to person for answers in all things Texas, not just houses. He is patient and very knowledgeable and we could not have done it without his help. Before it was even done I knew he was not just our realtor, but a friend and ally also. Terry THANKS for all you have Done, we are super excited and thankful to be a part of the area.

Kerry and Shawna Johnson (Coastal Buyer)

Laura was a great realtor.

We worked with her for several weeks in an attempt to hunt down our first home. Laura answered every question we had and graciously made herself available around the clock. Without her knowledgeable expertise we wouldn’t have been able to find our new home!

Marisol Pimentel

Laura went above and beyond to help our family find the perfect home.

We were new home buyers and she answered all of our questions and helped us navigate buying a home. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect person to help us make this first experience special. We also have a two year old which can make home buying challenging, but not with Laura. SHE IS THE BEST!

Tony was very responsive throughout the transaction from start to end, and connected us to others we needed locally.

We were lucky enough to find Terry a couple of years ago, when we were looking to purchase a property on Sth Padre Island.

More Recently, March 2021, Terry worked on our behalf as we listed 2 properties for sale in Port Isabel. Without doubt, Terry is the hardest working, most focused Agent in the Cameron County area. Terry has been successful in selling both properties, assisting with necessary Code requirements and with working with Title company to complete the sales , i might also add close to our asking prices) Terry has great local knowledge, understands the market and moreover provides realistic guidance, timelines etc. There is no better realtor in Cameron County in our opinion

Steven Robert McLaren (Retired)

Terry Thanks for all the advice, service and finally for find us the right person to acquire the apartment Well done and thanks for all

David Odriozola

Terry was referred to us from our previous professional who we worked with a year prior, as she had moved out of town.

Terry picked up right where we left off and got up to speed on our needs. What had not been completed the year prior, Terry successfully helped us secure the property on contract and got us quick answers to all our questions. He even got us to close before we left town. As someone whose father was in Real estate his whole, could not recommend Terry any higher.
