Beautiful lake! Terry was extremely helpful, in all facets of the sell. His local knowledge really made the entire process very easy, from pricing the property, to coordinating and giving access for the inspections, to knowing the local contractors to work with, etc. He handled every single item, and all we had to do was show up at the closing. A pleasure to work with, and someone I would certainly recommend if you are buying or selling in the SML area!"

"Terry valued us as clients. He never pushed us just to make the sale and he wanted to be sure we found something we were in love with and that we could afford. We spent 3 full days with Terry and not at any time did he rush us nor make us feel as though we were wasting his time. He showed us what we wanted to see and a few properties he thought we might be interested in seeing, again never pushing or hard selling on us. He was very hospitable and even invited us to his home to see new listings that hit while we were in town. Terry went the extra mile to be sure we found exactly what we were looking for and in our price range. Long story short, not only did we find our dream home location we also made our first SML friend."

"Our home buying experience using Terry Broadwater as a buyers agent could not have been better. Terry was extremely well organized and was able to use the feedback we provided him to rapidly identify just the types of properties we were looking for at the lake. Once we had identified the property of our dreams, Terry worked tirelessly on our behalf both in negotiating a fair market price and in making certain that no detail was overlooked in our transaction prior to settlement. We wholeheartedly recommend Terry for any of your real estate needs and will certainly use his services anytime the need arises again in the future."

“Our association with Terry Broadwater began when we selected his web site over many others for our property search in the Smith Mountain Lake area. Terry went well above and beyond what a Realtor would normally provide by spending the first two days driving around the area just to familiarize us with the various localities in proximity to Smith Mountain Lake. When we began to look at houses, Terry was well organized and tireless. When we selected a house, he saved us thousands of dollars over what we would have otherwise paid. We would use his services again if the need arises and recommend him without reservation to anyone considering buying property in the Smith Mountain Lake area.”

“Terry Broadwater helped us accomplish our dream of lake living. We have purchased and sold several houses over the years, in different locations, and Terry is, by far, the best agent we have ever been associated with.

Terry’s knowledge of the lake proved invaluable in our search. He spent numerous hours taking us to the various areas of the lake, which provided us with the opportunity to get a feeling for the many facets of the lake.

During the entire process, which spanned a few months, we made extensive use of email, web links and telephone conversations to obtain the maximum efficiency during our “on site” time at the lake.

When it came time to negotiate the purchase of our home Terry was, without question, our agent. We bought the house for a fair price but probably would not have done so, without Terry’s negotiating skills.

He and his wife, Deb’s, hospitality during our search process was most warming and supportive. Terry and his wife were invaluable resources before and after the sale. Yes, after the sale, when we are looking for help finding good services and extracurricular opportunities in this area. Terry does not walk away from you after the “deal”. We would highly recommend Terry to anyone considering a purchase or sale of real estate around Smith Mountain Lake.”

“Jill and I want to take this opportunity to thank Terry. We both feel that he went above and beyond what most agents do to make our property purchase a smooth and enjoyable one. With his vast knowledge of the area, he went out of his way to show us different parts of the lake, giving us plenty of different ideas before we were sold on our parcel. During the whole process, nothing was ever a problem, and when you live 700 miles away in this day and age, that is comforting to know. We are very happy that we chose Terry.”

• “Great overall service ... very patient ... spent lots of quality time before we came down to look, using email contacts and great web links
• During the visit made sure that we got to see many locations ... way beyond what we had requested and that helped to make sure we did not miss something • Organized our location visits so that they were all in order and we did not have to backtrack and waste any time ...we slowly but surely focused in on a narrower range of target locations
• Spent much time explaining the benefits of one location over another ... helped us make an actual buy which we are very comfortable with and saved us money
• Terry has great local contacts for builders and law offices ... knows all the good places to socialize
• Has a great condo overlooking SML for clients use so that you can start to develop a feel for that lake living experience “
