Terry has been wonderful every time we have engaged her for any of our Real Estate needs since moving to Charlotte in 2004. Can;t say enough good stuff about her. She knows her business, the market, the environment, everything! Has the right contacts for just about every need and offers them without pushing in any way. And she works super hard, to the point that I begged her to take some time off! She is just perfect for what she does.

I don't think there will be enough room in this box to express all the positive opinions we have of Terry and her team. We first met her back in 2004 when she helped us find our first home in Charlotte. That process started what has turned out into a multi year friendship. Since then, she has helped us in a couple of attempts to sell a house (withdrawn by us), finding a house for my son and daughter in law, finding a rental for us and most recently, finding our newest home.
Her wealth of experience shows right off the bat in the first conversation to gather your requirements. She explains how the search process will work and gives you the right context and expectations as to the financial aspect and formal steps so that you get going on those as well. She provides several contacts as needed, never pushing any of them, which is extremely helpful. When the time comes to show houses, she uses your pre-selected units from the lists she sends you based on your requirements and does not goes short in choices. She superbly leverages her experience to refine the search as you go through the first few viewings and will tell you her opinion on topics you may request, again, using her experience (always with an eye on fairness and legality). As you come down to making a decision, she will walk you through every step of the offer/contract process and assist you in setting the strategy that best fits your negotiating style and risk tolerance. She is fast at engaging the selling party, submitting all paperwork and holding your hand as needed on every step of the negotiation. In parallel, she helps you to identify and engage all necessary parties like Inspectors, Attorneys, etc., without pushing anything you may not need or want.
She has an unwavering commitment to YOUR goal, so even if you get close to pull away your offer for whatever reason, she would continue working with you and re-start the whole process rather than pushing you to close on a less than perfect situation (all based on your own decision). And her team is just as great and hard working as she is. I won't even get started on the hard working part, other than saying that we got to a couple of points where I begged her to take some time off. Of course, she would not!
I guess this long rambling can be summarized on a couple of sentences - she is hands down the best realtor we have ever had and we will recommend her to anyone in need of one. And we will contact her again when the time comes to move on!
Terry and her team were amazing. She is extremely knowledgeable about the market, the areas, and so helpful with negociating. This was my first experience with buying a home and she truly took me under her wing and respected me and treated me like a daughter. Super responsive and proactive throughout the whole process. I have heard horror stories about the "home buying process" and it was NOTHING like that for me. The main emotions I felt were excitement and eagerness to move! Thank you so much for making this process so enjoyable and unforgettable.
I am a first time homebuyer and Terry Alfero was my realtor and I’m so thankful for her help during this daunting process . She clearly has been doing this for a long time and knows the market well. She spent a long time helping explain all the rules about buying homes in NC and she was always available. No question was ever stupid or trivial. I think she really goes the extra mile . There are some people who are there just to do a job , and there are others who go the extra mile to make sure the job was done right . Terry is the latter . She is a dedicated realtor and if anyone is looking to buy or sell their home, I would recommend Terry.
Terry Alfero is the best realtor in the business. With her many years of real estate experience, she is knowledgeable from the beginning of the buying/selling process to the very end. There is no doubt that she is top agent every quarter for a reason and any customer would be lucky to have her assistance in buying or selling their home. Terry always goes the extra mile and does whatever is needed to get the job done. Thank you Terry and Team for helping my husband and I find our dream home.
Terry came highly recommended from friends of ours! She is always willing to go the extra mile. We enjoyed working with Terry. She was patient and extremely knowledgeable. She loves what she does and it shows!
Terry was ALWAYS bright, energetic and objective. She always had her clients' interests in mind. She NEVER rushed any of our decisions. She provided candid feedback on homes and did not try to push the sale of the most expensive home. She serviced our needs in a professional and honest way.
Terry adjusted to our needs and was a pleasure to work with. She was knowledgeable and easy to work with. She was very professional, yet personable and extremely patient, even with our four kids in tow!
I'm not an easy shopper but Terry let me be upfront about everything without making me feel uncomfortable. A nice touch was that as busy as she was, she made us feel like we were diplomats from another country. She paid attention to us! She's like shopping with the Mom you wished you had!
Terry was recommended by a relative. She was very patient and gave us a lot of time (we were from out of town). She took us to see whatever we wanted; good bargaining on our behalf. Terry is wonderful, and she was like a best friend!
As a 20 year old buying his first house I must say the experience went very smooth thanks to Terry and Allen Tate.
Terry was absolutely top-notch! We were uncertain about the area we wanted to live in, so our search encompassed a large area. Terry was very knowledgeable about the areas and was able to help us make a great choice. She worked tirelessly to accommodate our schedule and to show us properties as soon as they came on the market. Most importantly she was very honest and forthright. She worked extremely hard not to sell us a house but to help us find a home that fit our needs.

Terry has been an amazing agent during our entire home buying process. She has been very patient with our specific wants and needs and she was able to find the perfect home for our family. She is determined, dedicated, empathetic, and an absolute joy to work with during the entire process. We have purchased many homes and some agents leave you hanging once the offer is accepted but Terry was our partner the entire way! This was a great home buying experience thanks to Terry!
We have now worked with Terry on the sale of a home and the purchase of a home. She has been wonderful for both of these. She has helped us during some stressful times on both. She has recommended good contractors to help us when needed, helped in negotiations when needed on repairs, and anytime we needed anything she stepped in and helped. The final and most important piece is the communication. We always got answers when needed and she was great at communicating for us to the buyers or sellers. We would use her again if every needed.
We wanted to say THANK YOU, TERRY, for the wonderful service in selling our Madison Hill Ct. home for us. The advertising was done so well and professionally! We greatly appreciated the individualized attention from Terry in spending half of her day with my wife to find an apartment for us. This was way beyond our expectations (Terry you're the BEST!). On behalf of my wife, my son and myself... Thank you again for all the team efforts.

Anyone looking to sell or buy a home, I recommend Terry Alfero. We had the most professional home buying experience from start to finish. Thank you so much Terry for making this the most enjoyable experience in buying a home. Terry can assist anywhere or in any state. Does not have to be just in the Charlotte Area
As a first time home buyer, I am extremely grateful to have had such an experienced and thoughtful agent, Terry Alfero. I intend to work with Terry for any future real estate needs!
Terry is the best realtor I’ve ever known. She is personable and goes above and beyond for her clients. Nothing is impossible for her. She’s hard working and you can rely on her. I would highly recommend her.
"Thank you for the excellent, personal and professional job that you and Mary did for us! From looking at houses to choosing options on our home to getting us settled in the rental to being there for each inspection and meeting with Lennar to the closing! - you guys did so much and did it so well! This is the third house we have bought and I've always been satisfied with our realtors but there is absolutely no comparison between you and them!"
