When an ordinary real estate company just won’t do…


We are Passionate. We love real estate. We understand the significance of every home purchase or sale and strive to protect you and your investment. We work hard to exceed our client’s expectations, whether that means helping you find and purchase the perfect home, or helping you sell quickly and for the best possible price.

We are Experienced. We know the Triangle. We’ve been selling property here for over 25 years and have decades of experience and knowledge to share with you. From Chapel Hill and Carrboro, to Durham and Hillsborough, and Raleigh to Mebane, we know the market. We know the process and understand what it takes to market your home to attract buyers. Our experience includes working with first time buyers and seasoned sellers to investors, developers and builders. We've cultivated successful relationships with lenders, attorneys, appraisers, contractors and inspectors, creating a reliable network to support our clients in every way imaginable. 

We are Client-Focused. Customer care is our first priority. We work primarily by referral, so our goal is to provide a memorable experience that makes you tell everyone about us! From our first meeting to after closing we are here to make sure the process is stress-free and successful. We listen to our clients' needs and believe in clear communication.

We are Committed to Our Community. We are full of local love. We are actively involved in our community and are committed to making it a better place to live for everyone. You can find Terra Novans volunteering and serving on boards for local non-profits such as: Chamber of Commerce, Carrboro Arts Center, Home Builders Association, Habitat for Humanity, Chapel Hill Public Library Foundation, and Ronald McDonald House - just to name a few. We’ve served on town commissions and PTA’s, and coached our kids' sports teams. 


We value our client relationships and take our responsibilities as your real estate advisor very seriously. We recognize and appreciate the trust you instill in us and we strive to protect and insure your investment.

Our service to you is long term, before, during and after the sale.


We support our local community and enjoy creating relationships for life. As a result, we have developed a professional practice, based primarily on referral business. It is our philosophy to put the long term interests of our clients first.
