Teri serves our South Carolina market in the Hilton Head, Bluffton and Beaufort area. She is licensed to originate mortgage loans in South Carolina and Georgia. She finds her drive to work seamlessly with homeowners and buyers from raising 3 very smart and athletic daughters who are now, in turn, serving the welfare of others, both human and animal.
She lives in the beautiful Lowcountry of Beaufort, South Carolina with Alan, her husband of 36 years whom she met while both attending the University of South Carolina. They now thoroughly enjoy the company and antics of their young granddudes.
Teri’s 19 years in the mortgage industry started in the private secondary market giving her an appreciation for homeowners’ efforts to make their mortgages work for them. She helped homeowners work through financial challenges and find clear options for buyers in their path towards ownership.
As a mortgage loan originator, she connects easily with clients by combining shared interests of college sports, music, love of the water and real estate in the conversation. For buyers considering their first home to homeowners ready to downsize, Teri strives to provide the 5 Star Customer Experience you deserve.
