Terry has been helping his clients meet their Real Estate objectives since 1973! That is also the year that Terry graduated from High School and started attending Northern Michigan University.
Terry affiliated with Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Service in the early 80's, and had a rewarding and successful career with them. But something was missing. As his company grew his time spent with his personal clients (something that he loves to do) diminished. It was as if his company was managing him and he wasn't in charge of his own time or destiny.
Then he found out about RE/MAX, a company with a proven track record for attracting and keeping the country's top agents. RE/MAX helped Terry reach his status as one of the top agents in The Upper Peninsula, and helped him and his partner, Cheryl Jackson, make RE/MAX 1st Realty the #1 office in The Upper Peninsula and, Terry (and thousands of other Top Producers) helped make RE/MAX the #1 Real Estate Company in the world today!
Besides selling Real Estate, Terry's passions include Fishing (He is a Captain and owns his own Charter Boat) and Hunting. He has hunted in most of our Western States, including Alaska and Hawaii, and Africa, Canada, Central & South America and Mexico! He is also an accomplished target shooter, dog trainer, and writer who has even been published!
