Terumi excels at doing what she loves best – matching
people with properties. She has managed a diverse
range of sales transactions, from lofts in Soho to
Brooklyn townhouses, from apartments in the East
Village to houses in Ditch Plains, Montauk. Terumi
understands the importance of negotiating as well as the
emotional side of the deal.
Originally from California, Terumi moved to New York
City in 1992 to pursue a career in acting. A common
thread of her acting work was a deep interest in peoples'
characters and empathy for their needs -- an ideal set of
skills for helping folks choose a place to live.
Before getting her license, she had become a real estate
“matchmaker” for her friends, connecting those who
were selling with those who were buying. As this passion
grew, she decided to take the leap and dedicate herself
to real estate full time.
After decades of residing in lower Manhattan (Tribeca,
Soho, Greenwich Village) Terumi now lives in Red Hook,
Brooklyn. Her firsthand knowledge of Manhattan and
Brooklyn neighborhoods is a natural asset to her clients.
Terumi is excited to join the Compass family, which will
combine her experience with the company’s unique data
