We have been very satisfied working with Terry and her assistant, Brittany, in the sale of our property. She was very knowledgeable about the whole procedure. Someone was always available if there were any questions.

Probably the shortest time I've every spent with a Realtor! Found the house, negotiated, accepted and closed pretty darn quick! And smooth! I've never found a house that quickly before. Terry was there pretty much for the entire experience--sat through the entire inspection.

Terry responded promptly to my email request and came out to see me to discuss my options for listing the house for sale. Her calls reporting offers and meeting with her to negotiate on a contract were immediate and to my schedule. She kept me informed throughout the entire process and answered all of my many questions to my satisfaction. I highly recommend her to anyone wanting to buy or sell a house .

We interviewed several agents before listing our home for sale by Terry Bailey with Total Realty. She and an associate came out in the rain to see our home and give her suggestions on what to do to enhance the property as well as pricing. She explained how she would be advertising our home through internet listings, agent caravan, and a yard sign. Terry Bailey was available by phone and email to answer any questions or take care of any concerns that we had during the process. Having a buyer in mind, she sold our home within a week of the listing agreement although we accepted the offer for $4000 less than asking. The buyer changed financing which presented a few issues but Terry kept things moving along smoothly. We would use her again if we had property to sell in the Deland/West Volusia area. Less ... More

Terry is very attentive to the needs I had during the showing of my house. Her staff contacted me in a timely manner and gave me plenty of notice of potential buyers wanting to look at my home. Any time I had a concern about the feedback from the showing agent she reached out to them and found out what the comments were of the people who had come to see my home. I made changes to my house based on their feedback. I could always get in touch with Terry by phone and if I had to leave a message she responded very quickly. I would recommend Terry to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home. Less ... More

Terry Bailey was a fantastic realtor. We could not have asked for better information and immediate service of all types. We had a short deadline and very specific needs. Terry offered assistance at every turn, all through the process. Terry was very professional and ethical. Terry will work for you full time at full speed. I do not believe that you could ask for more.

Terry Bailey was a Godsend for me. She was patient and kind throughout the whole process. As an absentee and first time seller this process was very scary for me. Terry and her staff helped me out every step of the way.and I was very comfortable throughout the sale. Not to mention the property sold in 48 hours! So Kudos to Terry and her staff . You will be in very good hands if you choose them.

If you are moving to or selling property in the Volusia county area see Terry!!! Terry helped us find, negotiate for and close on our new house. This was a 2 year project and we lived across the state which made for a tedious process. Terry made us feel at ease and helped in all phases of this process. I am happy to endorse Terry Bailey as the professional real estate person she is and hope you enjoy the selling / purchasing process as much as we did.

An absolute professional. We considered ourselves extremely lucky to find this realtor. Our transaction was handled effectively at all levels and results were exactly as anticipated. We not only have a new property, but also found a new friend. We highly recommend Terry Bailey to anyone looking for a real estate agent who offers more than lip service.

Terry Bailey is the "go-to" realtor for this area. We recommend her highly to anyone interested in locating here or to anyone interested in moving. She goes over and above what all the others do. She knows how to connect with people and knows how to put people looking for real estate into the perfect home. And if you are planning on selling your home, she will let you know (in a very professional way) that you'd better clean up, de-clutter, or stage your place. She won't bring potential buyers into a home if it isn't prepared to be shown in the best possible condition. She works round-the-clock and always with a helping hand. For a successful real estate relationship, it takes two types of people: a realtor who goes the extra mile and a client who agrees to listen to what the professional realtor has to offer. Terry is the realtor who gets the job done....and looks great while doing it! Less ... More

Terry is fabulous--very knowledgeable and empathetic. I have used her twice and both times I was very happy with her help. The first time I was in the middle of a divorce and she wisely told me to keep my house, which was the right decision. The second time, I was moving my parents into assisted living and she got the closing wrapped up mercifully quickly.

Terry Bailey is a seasoned Realtor with excellent communication skills who possesses a superior competency in her field of expertise. Terry was with us through the whole process often working from home or from out of town after normal working hours. She maintains a great staff and they were also quite helpful and very responsive. My wife and I felt total confidence in her and her staff throughout the entire process of purchasing our retirement home. We highly recommend Terry to anyone buying in the DeLand area especially if you need to work with someone from out of town. Sincerely, Tim and Judy Ross Less ... More

As an out of town buyer, Terry was great to work with and gave me immediate information on homes I had seen and liked. The seller of my home was difficult at best and Terry advised me on how best to deal with the situation. And finally, I was overseas when docs needed signing, which Terry and her team were able to get figured out and I actually bought the house while I was in China!

Terry is a wonderful realtor. She listed and sold our home in less than 30 days. We found her to be knowledgeable about the local market and all real estate matters. We would have been in the dark without her. She showed up on time to do an initial walk through and ran housing market estimates within an hour. She set up a time to come takes pictures and virtual pictures and was there right on time. The pictures were posted that same day. Never a wait with this lady. Knows her stuff. Would not hesitate to use her skills again. Less ... More

Our firm uses Terry exclusively when we have real estate needs. She and her staff are a pleasure to work with and are very professional in their handling of the real estate sale process. Our firm was very pleased at how quickly Terry was able to locate a buyer for a property we had for sale in one of our probate cases. She was able to get our clients the price they wanted for the property. I would highly recommend her to others in my profession as well as to family.

I don't believe my house would have sold if Terry had not been my agent. We had problems with a FHA closing and she spent at least three weeks making calls and trying to clear the loan process for my closing. She was always there to answer every question and kept me informed every step of the way. I have sold a number of homes and she is the best agent I have dealt with.

I have purchased another home from Terry and in fact, this is the 3rd home since my original post. Terry is fantastic and I would not dream of doing business with another realtor. Terry has also been engaged as the property manager for each of the homes as I know they will be in great hands. The original post from 2012 is below and all those comments still stand today. Terry is an ultimate professional. She listens to what you are wanting and does not waste your time in showing you something that is outside of your request. One of the best things that Terry has done for me is to be flexible with her work days and hours making it easy to see homes and receive her attention on a one on one basis. Terry is very attune to market trends and pricing and is quick to bring new listings to your attention. She took care of making sure that all of the paperwork and details were handled to make the closing process a breeze. It was a pleasure working with Terry and she is currently looking for another property for me so it is easy to recommend her to you. Less ... More

I will attempt to review Terry Bailey without going into a lengthly diatribe, which will certainly be difficult. My wife and I wanted to sell our property located in the Deland Florida area and contacted Terry Bailey. My first conversation with Terry was extremely truthful as to selling anything in today's economy. However, her positive attitude and knowledge of the market made me feel comfortable about listing our land... I couldn't believe it when Terry called me within a few weeks to let us know of a potential buyer. After just a few conversations Terry had our property sold... Thank You Terry. You are the greatest.. Less ... More

We sold two homes in Deltona in 2011/2012 and used Terry Bailey as our agent on both transactions. She really showed knowledge of the area and always had the right answers for us. It really helped because we live far away from Deltona. One house needed a new a/c unit and she took over the entire job. She located the company and was able to get us a great price for the unit and installation. She also help locate a company to pressure wash the house and driveway. She is an exceptional realtor and we highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell. Less ... More

Found Terry via the web. Relocating from South Florida up to Deland. Appeared as if she was the "go to" realtor in the area and in the end that certainly held true. Responded very quickly via email (preferable for tech savvy individuals). We were able to email back and forth a bit and with her thorough knowledge of the area it made it very easy for us to lock into a target market. She showed us many properties and in a couple of visits to Deland we were able to find the right one. We closed on 3/16/12 and could not be happier with the entire process. A truly great lady. I only wish she was our realtor in South Florida too! Thanks Terry!! Update 2/27/14. Have worked with Terry for close to 3 years now. One rental, two purchases, one sale, plus several other negotiations. Terry continues to be a rock star when it comes to her business. She's very in tune with the local markets and works closely with you to achieve your real estate goals. Will continue to refer her to family, friends, and strangers alike! Less ... More

We told Terry we needed to see a property in an hour...before ever having ever met her. She rearranged her schedule and met us at her listing in downtown Deland, FL. We loved the little cottage and made an offer and asked to close in a week. No problem. Later that morning(at my request) she had the paperwork ready to sign in her office and we closed in six days. She and her assistant were most accommodating. We used their office as our own for an hour one morning during the hectic transition. Terry is a doer.....not a blowhard showoff, as I have witnessed in a number of men realtors we met in the area. I don't mean to sound sexist......just the facts, ma'am! We did negotiate price, it's just that it wasn't that involved of a deal, being cash, so I don't know every one of her strengths, just the ones I witnessed. Good Luck! Less ... More

My house had been up for sale for approximately 20 months - no action. When Terry took the sale over, it was sold within 2 months. She knew exactly what to do and how to do it! I would probably still have the house in DeLand if Terry hadn't taken the sale over. Terry is a very responsible woman, and I truly appreciate the friendship we have developed. Anyone who wants to sell their house, should call Terry! Sandy Herald

Last year my elderly mother moved into an assisted living facility, which in turn lead to a need to sell her house. Terry was referred to us by a family friend and after meeting with her we agreed to sign on with Terry to handle the listing process. At this point it was clear that this was going to be a very tedious and difficult process to manage since my Mom was in Deland and my family was in Atlanta. The house was in absolutely awful shape not to mention 60 years of accumulated stuff shoved in every space. I really did not know how I was going to manage the clean up and needed repairs etc. This is where Terry set herself apart. She offered to contact services and obtain quotes for the variety of work - cleaning, painting, carpeting and hauling off of a lot of furniture and trash. She kept me informed along the way and got my approval before scheduling any work and essentially managed and coordinated the whole process. I do not think many other realtors would have done that. It took quite awhile to get all of this done but now the house looks clean and fresh and we are optimistic that we will sell the house this spring. Terry's assistance in this effort was invaluable to me personally. I do not know how I would have managed this without her assistance. I give Terry my highest recommendation for her "above and beyond" willingness to help. Less ... More
