Tierra was just terrific! Like many others, we began working with Tierra remotely as we were living in another state while selling our house. She didn't hesitate to show us potential homes via FaceTime or sharing videos. Tierra always remained positive and constant communication even while inventory was low. She and her staff were always available and very responsive to our requests. We found her very helpful in providing contractor references and many other sources of information as newly relocated residents. She is very connected and has a reference for just about anything. She represented us with such professionalism through contract negotiations and closing. We feel like we have made a new friend. We highly recommend Tierra! She really is superio

Tierra was our listing agent to sell our property and she also represented our interests in purchasing a new home. We found her to be extremely knowledgeable about the area and the market. She was ALWAYS very professional and prompt in addressing any of our questions and/or concerns. Another quality we admired was her patience in dealing not only with us but all concerned parties. She was a skilled negotiator which aided us in obtaining the highest possible price for our property.Once we purchased our new property she was able to provide many recommendations for contractors to complete various required repairs. She has been helpful to us even after the closing on our property.We would highly recommend Tierra as she was FANTASTIC.

Tierra is super knowledgeable about Hilton Head Island and was a great resource for us in our search for an investment property. We weren’t very familiar with the area or the unique rules on the island. Lots to be aware of and Tierra walked us through all of it. Tierra was very responsive and available for our questions. We thoroughly enjoyed the process and very satisfied with the outcome. We now have a great property in a great location and are loving every minute of it, thanks to Tierra.

Tierra was there for me at all times through the search and buy process, always patient, kind and with a smile. Even better she has been there for me long after the closing. I needed help at house when I was out of state and she never hesitated. She knows everywhere in HH as if she’s lived in each community and always give you the space to think and calculate plans and decisions at your pace… not hers. She was never pushy and clearly was fine if I was just thinking about HH or wanted to wait a year or was ready. I actually met her 3 years before my purchase and she returned calls, texts and e-mails through those years whenever I reached out. Kinda feels like a new friend not just a realtor
