Terra Vista Realty Testimonials
We used Terra Vista for both a home purchase and to sell our house. Tom was our agent on the buy side: we looked at both new construction and existing homes in a variety of neighborhoods. His knowledge as a builder was very useful, as he was able to quickly give us some perspective on common building practices, things to look out for, and estimate prices of various options and improvements. The purchase transaction went very well, and so we used Terra Vista again to sell our previous house. Lyn provided great service in getting the house listed and priced correctly. She was responsive to all of our questions, and made suggestions for getting the sale done, but never pressured us. I am recommending Terra Vista to our friends in the area, for full service at very reasonable commission rates.
Moving from out of state, we used Tom as a buyer’s agent.
There are three real reasons why we enjoyed having him as our realtor.
First of all, Tom’s demeanor and ability to sense our needs and our desires.
He is good at judging when to step in as well as when not to.
Also, the fact that he is an experienced contractor adds a whole new depth and insight to the real estate process.
Not only can he look at a house and discuss market features and value, but also recognize specific facets of construction and what it means to home ownership.
That is a comfort level no other real estate agent or broker has ever been able to provide us.
Finally, no one can argue with Tom’s discount.

My husband and I are very pleased with the personalized service we
received from Lyn Palmer. She was a wonderful real estate agent who is
very knowledgeable about the area where we chose to purchase a home.
Lyn was always available to answer the questions we had throughout the
purchasing process. The 1.5% buyer incentive was wonderful and paid for
our entire closing costs. I would highly recommend using Lyn and Terra
Vista Realty. I would definitely recommend her to all my family and
friends who are in need of a real estate agent.

With the service we got from Terra Vista it is hard to imagine how anyone else would provide a better service. We worked with Lyn and were happy every step of the way. All the procedures and conditions were explained upfront. Viewings were arranged efficiently. She pointed out things that we should take note during showings… Lyn recommended a housing inspector and an attorney, both of whom we are happy with. Lyn negotiated with the seller’s agent and got all the repair work we wanted. Also when there was a concern of a minor termite damage Tom came to inspect. (Tom is a builder as well.) So we are happy both because of the service we got plus the few thousand we saved!
Reduced fees definitely don't mean reduced service. Tom was fantastic to work with.
We used his services as both a buyer's agent and a seller's agent. He gave us great advice and was very knowledgeable.
He even crawled under our home to examine our foundation. We received an offer in about 15 days from listing our home.
I would recommend Tom Palmer to anyone buying or selling a home.
We located Tom via the web and were impressed by his services and that he would offer a Realtor rebate for us the buyers. His sincerity and care was one of the many aspects that made us choose him as our agent. He is very caring, personable, and has a professional attitude that mixed with his experience as a professional builder made the buying process much easier for us. He is also very patient, organized and knowledgeable in his field. Since he became our representative, he provided us with constant phone and e-mail updates.
What a person looks for in an agent is someone who is looking after the customer's bottom line, and I dare say, Tom was always there to give us sound and honest advice regarding our property.
Therefore, We wholeheartedly recommend Tom to anyone who is looking for someone who will give them an honest assessment of the value and condition of a property, advice on how to deal with the unexpected, and who will go out of his way to make the buying of a property a smooth one.
Thank you Tom!

As an experienced seller I have handled multiple transactions myself. I recently moved to the West Coast and desired broker assistance to complete the deal.
Tom's service was outstanding and absolutely on-par with the full commission agencies for a fraction of the price.
If you are selling a property you are wasting money if you don't use Tom. Whether you've sold one house or 100 Tom Palmer is the way to go.
We were first-time home sellers when we met Tom through the Terra Vista website.
We had been active on the market for eight months with a major realty company in the Charlotte area before listing with Tom.
In all 8 months with a full service realtor we never received the service, activity level, or quality offers that Tom was able to secure in a manner of 6 weeks.
Our only regret is not having listed with Tom earlier.
Our sale was not without a few bumps and Tom went above and beyond our expectations with excellent negotiations and level-headed reasoning though and beyond our closing.
We highly recommend his marketing based on his ability to move our house so quickly.
We can also strongly recommend his negotiating abilities and ease with which he worked with all parities to ensure our house closed under favorable conditions.
I just wanted to take a minute to say thanks for all your help in selling
our home. Every aspect , from market analysis & pricing our home correctly
to the final closing was handled professionally & in a timely manner. I felt
informed of everything going on during the selling process & confident all
the details were being taken care of. Bottom line. Our home sold quickly &
we saved a lot of money. Thank you Tom Palmer - Terra Vista Realty.
When it came to the sale of our home, we thought that going with one of the bigger real estate firms in Charlotte would produce the quickest and best results. Sadly, that was not the case and after 6 months of feeling like a number vs. a client, we opted for a change.
We ended up moving from Charlotte back to Florida, while our house was still on the market, which you can imagine would cause some additional worry. Fortunately, before we left, we decided to change listing agents and called upon Tom to handle the sale of our home. He did an excellent job communicating with us and staying on top of the details until our home sold.
Tom has been a pleasure to work with and we would definitely recommend him to anyone seeking a professional, yet personable agent to sell their home. With Tom, "reduced commission" does not mean "reduced service".
-Jim and Kenya R.
Tom was very professional, courteous and forthcoming at all times. I felt like my interests were always being protected and that details were being followed-through on.
I received excellent service from listing my property with Terra Vista Realty. Not only does the firm give excellent service and is easy to work with but it also gives excellent knowledge
for today’s marketing needs. I got the price that I was looking for in less than 30 days from the listing date and my property closed
in only 8 days from it being under contract!
Tom helped sell our house. He provided professional and honest service, advising us on what was the best way to approach the sale and the offers that came. With Tom's guidance we were able to complete the sale smoothly and with no surprises. Thanks Tom!
Tom Palmer of Terra Vista Realty is an excellent realtor. He is very knowledgeable concerning his trade. Tom really knows his market well and is a joy to work with. Highly Recommended.
Terra Vista Realty provided me the service of other full commission agencies at a great value.
I had a contract signed before the listing expired and Mr. Palmer was honest, easy to work with and reach once I had moved.
