Terry Morehouse, SRES
Terry’s first exposure to real estate began in 1976 as a means to augment his highly successful general contracting firm, in the greater Allentown and Philadelphia markets. After surviving the 1980-81 recession, Terry sold his operations, to embark on a new career path with John Hancock Mutual Life Insurance Company. Eighteen months later, Terry was counted among the top agents in the country, opening the door to membership in the esteemed Pennsylvania Leaders Roundtable, and The distinguished Million Dollar Roundtable.
In 1985, Terry relocated to Brandon, Florida, to establish Morehouse Financial Services — a Financial / Estate Planning, Multi-line Insurance, Investment, and Tax Accounting firm. As President and CEO, Terry was licensed with the NASD as a Registered Investment Adviser. He also held Life and Health Insurance licenses in five states.
While a member of the Tampa Life Underwriters Association, Terry attained his LUTCF accreditation and then went on to teach Life Insurance and Financial Planning Courses for several years.
Highly recognized by his peers as a community leader, Terry was a finalist for the coveted "Brandon Small Business Leader Of The Year Award" in both 1990 and 1994.
Furthering his list of accomplishments would include serving on The Children’s Board, The Hillsborough County Housing Finance Authority, and The University of Tampa Board of Governors. He co-established the Family Financial Management Program for the Hillsborough County Co-operative Extension, and served on the Board of Center Place Fine Arts and Civic Association in Brandon. While serving as a Vice President of Bloomingdale Little League, he spearheaded a successful campaign against the County Commission to save the league from condemnation. His effort resulted in Bloomingdale becoming one of the highest rated facilities in the State.
In 1995 he chartered the Brandon / East Hillsborough Chapter of the American Heart Association and served as President for two years.
Terry was also extremely active in local politics, having made two close bids for the School Board and the County Commission. In 1996, because of his invaluable insight to education, he was appointed to the Citizens Advisory Committee for the Hillsborough County School Board. As Chairman from 1998 to 2000, he pushed for historic Unitary Status resolutions that helped shape the School System to what it is today. As such, his unselfish and relentless efforts were recognized in 2000 when he received the highly coveted E.D.D.I.E. (Excellence Dedication Devotion In Education) Award from the Hillsborough County School Board.
Although accolades can go on and on, his most prized recognition was being named 1996 Father of the Year, in Brandon.
In 1998, Terry returned to real estate full time --- relying on his knowledge and experience to approach all of his business with unparalleled professionalism.
Evidence that property size, price, location, or a client's age has no boundaries, is a client base that stretches from Pensacola, FL., to Miami, with an exceptionally strong presence in Pinellas and Hillsborough Counties. His experience with luxury Waterfront properties is second to none.
Terry is especially proud of his SRES accreditation, an indicator of his thoughtful experience and sensitivity with the 55 plus market.
"Terry has represented us for numerous property transactions. His knowledge of the market and putting together a group of income properties is second to none. We would never use anyone else."

"Terry has more ethics in his little finger than most people do in their whole body. Thank you, Terry. Enough said!"

"We were referred to Terry through a mutual friend and client. Our first conversation was by phone and lasted almost an hour. After explaining our frustration with another Realtor, we felt extremely confident in soliciting Terry's assistance. Surprisingly, he would not commit until he received a copy of a letter we had to write to the other agent advising the agent of that she was no longer representing us. That alone, spoke volumes of who Terry is. Once that was cleared, he accomplished more in three days than the other person did in several months, simply because he took the time to listen and understand our wants and needs."
MM -Treasure Island, FL.
"My Partner and I purchased a condo in 2008 before the market took a dive. Over the years we considered selling out knowing that we'd suffer a major loss. So, in November we reached out to Terry to list our unit. He suggested we wait until after the new year because the market was not moving and he felt we could do better. WE, on the other hand, thought WE knew more than he did and insisted on listing it then. He agreed on the condition that if nothing happened within 30 days, we'd take it off the market. Suffice to say, we withdrew the listing. 60 days later, we relisted the condo based on his recommendation. Two days later we had a full price cash offer which was for $35,000 more than WE wanted to list it for. WE WERE VERY HAPPY!"

"We contacted Terry from his website. We were relocating from Chicago to Pinellas County, and we needed to find someone who understood and could process a 1031 exchange. Terry was the only Realtor whose website openly stated his experience with such matters. So. I called. OMG! Take it from someone who thought they knew everything, I got royally educated, in one phone call. Needless to say, we used him to plan a 4.4Mil 50/50 1031. In the process, the way he designed our portfolio and then worked with the Q.I. and Bank, was absolutely the most impressive thing I've ever witnessed. Saying thanks is not enough."
DS - St. Petersburg, FL.
"Terry helped us purchase our home in 2011, and this summer we had to sell and relocate. There was just one problem, the market in our area had not come up to where we had to be to make the move. Calling Terry for his advise turned out to be a blessing. He said that if we were ready to sell immediately, he felt confident that we'd get more than what we needed to relocate. After explaining everything, he made a gutsy call and listed it for more than any house had sold for in the neighborhood. 4 days later it was under a cash agreement for exactly what he said it would be, and we have a new life."
CO - Seminole, FL.
"In five years our RE portfolio has tripled in value, not including the income derived from the various properties. We needed it for retirement and we got it! Thanks Terry!"
DE - St. Petersburg, FL
"A friend told us about Terry. So we went to an open house to meet him. With just a couple years until we retire, we were buying our first home. Whether you believe it or not, every time we walk through our front door, we thank God for having met him. His patience and detail kept us calm through the 16 weeks it took to find our home. Yes, 16 weeks. He kept saying I know what you want and I will find it. And he did. There was nothing missing from our demands of what we wanted. This man is a Saint! God bless you Terry!"
R&N - Largo, FL
In April, we contacted Terry to discuss listing our home. At the time nothing had been selling in our waterfront community for over 639,000. Terry felt we could get 769,000 for our home and backed his statement up with sufficient information. We thought he was crazy, but we let him proceed. Nine days after he listed the property we had a full price offer of 769,000.00 If we had listened to the other realtor, we would have been out a lot of money. We cannot begin to tell you how greatful we are for all you have done for us."

We had met Terry in 2009 when had to list our townhome in Seminole, FL due to relocating to Silver Springs, Fl. We liked him so much that In July we contacted Terry for guidance on listing our home. Needless to say we were delighted he was able to list it for us, even though we were 120 miles north of his office. We had already determined what we thought the property was worth. We just didn't realize that Terry would tell us we were nuts, that our price was too low. We agreed to his price which was 13,000 more than ours. He then told us to start packing because he would have it sold within 2 weeks, "max". He wasn't kidding. It sold in one day. Once again, Terry. Thanks for your help and professionalism.
