Agent Bio & Listings
Terry Smith, originally from Statesville, North Carolina, started visiting friends in Sarasota in 1991. Shortly after he and his wife Crystal bought a Condo there in 1993. They then discovered an advertisement for Placida Harbour in a magazine in 1996, and decided to buy, and lived there part-time. After becoming more familiar with the area, they bought a lot on Boca Grande in 1997 so that they could build a home. Their home was completed in 2001. Crystal and Terry continued to stay on Boca Grande part-time until they decided to move here permanently with their two children in 2003. Their son graduated from Lemon Bay High School, and is now attending classes at the Art Institute in Tampa. When asked as to why they decided to move here permanently, they responded by saying, "We love boating and being on the beautiful green water. There are no ice storms, no snow, and the leaves stay green and on the trees." They are members at the local YMCA, a local golf club, and some boating clubs. They attend The First Baptist Church of Boca Grande and love all the local restaurants on and off Boca Grande. Terry and Crystal were in the Office Equipment and furniture business in North Carolina for 32 years. They also enjoy developing and building commercial property in North Carolina. They are in the process of completing their first building project in Cape Haze. They have 32 years of sales experience and hope to expand that experience to interested buyers that hopefully will love this beautiful area as much as they do.
