Working with Terry over the last months, as he assumed the temporary role of managing the Newport Beach office along with his other responsibilities, has been a real pleasurable and inspirational experience.

At each office meeting, he presents information he feels is essential to becoming a competent client-oriented professional and shares stories of his own experiences to validate the key steps to success. He constantly reminds us that his objective is to help each agent build a dependable, sustainable, and predictable business while improving the quality of his/her life. Terry is very approachable and makes people feel he is sincerely interested in their story. As a role model for one who personifies a leader and coach, he has set the bar high for his replacement.

I have been with a few different companies over my real estate career, and dealt with many managers and people who are in charge of hundreds of agents.

In my dealings with these people I have never come across anyone like Terry. Although he has created massive success in his real estate career, he is very humble and treats everyone as his equal. He is truly "one of us." I have come to him with many different challenges and without exception he has made time for me, and not only "helped" me but given me a concrete solution and a plan. Terry doesn't just "give you a fish" he teaches you "how to fish." Of the many things that I admire about Terry is this... In this competitive industry (real estate) there is tremendous pressure from Corporate placed on upper management to put the company first. And that being said, one of the things that really stands out about Terry is that he always puts the individual agent first! And in doing that he makes the entire company much better. And as Billionaire Richard Branson says "Your biggest value in business isn't your customers, it is your employees, if you take great care of your employees, they will take great care of your customers! That is exactly what Terry does, and thus we ALL benefit from his philosophy! My only regret about Terry is that I didn't meet him a long time ago!

My first significant interaction with Terry was when I had a challenge with a transaction.

Terry is an ethical and pleasurable professional to work with.

My name is Desiree Ryan, First Team agent, working out of the Dana Point office.

I have a listing in Huntington Beach that I'm trying to find a buyer for. Terri LeClair, Manager of First Team Newport Beach office, welcomed me to plug my listing at his weekly office meeting for all his agents to hear. My intention was to arrive and bolt right after I told the agents of my listing. Terry quickly dove straight into his agenda for his meeting as I was packing up to leave and he caught my attention with one of his topics on “Simple ways to pick up new business through everyday life without trying”. I ended up staying through his entire office meeting and have applied a few easy ideas he offered to my daily routine. Thank you Terry for making me feel comfortable in your office and giving me fresh new ideas to increase my business with ease.

Desiree Ryan

Terry has so much to offer and has such incredible knowledge of and experience in his profession. More importantly, he has a giver's personality and is always there for his agents. He calls, texts, and emails , and won't leave you hanging when you need direction. I am so appreciative of my luck to work under him and feel so fortunate to have him in our office.
