I was born in Wyoming County, a Holstein rich rural county in Western New York State. I spent my formative years on a diary farm learning to appreciate our Earth, her animals and the raw circle of life. For a kid, farm life was magical. From eating corn silage during our let’s pretend we’re cows” game, to stepping in cow patties in the pastures, building forts in the hay mount or playing hide & seek in the cornfields, country living was an exploration of life in all its glory. And muck.
Fast forward: I’ve graduated from high school and my family has moved to Morganton, NC — a small town in Western NC. It was a crash landing into Southern culture. Like a beacon, the Triangle called out to me:
‘Send me your liberal, your young, your intellectual masses, yearning to drink mocha lattes.’
I attended UNC and graduated with a degree in English Literature. After graduating, I experimented with this thing called adulting; marriage, children, homeownership and various career opportunities. I discovered Weaver Street Realty in 2001 and I’ve been here ever since. My cohorts are a group of talented, opinionated, funny and most certainly, supremely professional people.
Weaver Street Realty is not your typical real estate firm. We have a love of the land and our community; a team with a strong work ethic and a belief in a different way of doing business. Above all, we are people who know who we are and what we stand for. We welcome everyone and treat everyone equally with respect and dignity.
Real estate is my passion, but it isn’t my only passion. My other passion is live music and I travel the world to hear it. Ask me about my adventures!

“We can’t rate Terri Turner highly enough. We would give her 10 stars! Terri was experienced, knowledgeable about the market, efficient and fun. She helped us sell a house (in five days!) and buy our current home. Thumbs up” – Renee Hayes
“Terri was an absolute gem and a half to work with! She really helped me on my first time buying a home. She let me know why a home would or would not be good for me based on what I was looking for and gave great recommendations on what could be done!” – hibyeman54
“When I was searching for a single family home (I had owned a townhouse for 17 years) I looked to Weaver Street Realty for guidance. Full disclosure, I am a Real Estate Broker and manage rentals. I have zero experience in the buy/sell side of real estate. Terri is my sister and naturally I looked to her for guidance on purchasing a home. I was not even sure it was possible with my income, low down payment, etc. She helped me navigate the entire process and I was not as easy client. Along the way I have developed a relationship with the entire team and still drop by to see everyone. They are a phenomenal group of professionals that I highly recommend.” – Gina Turner
“We could not have asked for a better experience working with Terri Turner! As first time homebuyers, we were nervous about the process, but Terri answered all of our (many) questions and guided us along the way. She takes the time to get to know her clients and truly feels like a friend. We can’t wait to work with her again in the future!” – Oskar Michelsen
“Terri at Weaver Street Realty was an absolute godsend when it came to finding our home. This was our first time purchasing a house, and Terri was so welcoming and excited to walk us through the process, answering any questions we had along the way. When our offer on our first house wasn’t accepted (which seems par for the course in this housing market), Terri came to us with another (even more perfect) listing only a week later. Fast forward a couple of months and we are now in our new home and absolutely loving it. If you are a first time homebuyer, a seasoned and experienced homeowner looking for a new place, or are looking to sell your house, there is no doubt that Terri and the Weaver Street Realty team can help you. Highly recommend!” – David Colston
“Terri Turner and Miranda Parker helped my partner and me find the perfect home for us in an impossible market. Their excellent communication, attention to detail, and expert guidance in crafting our offer made all the difference. So very happy to have worked with these brilliant realtors.” – Karen Tucker
“In 2O16 Terri Turner at Weaver Street Realty helped us navigate the insane market and crazy roller coaster that was finding our first home. As our family expanded, we realized we needed more space and we also knew who to call! We just worked with her again in selling our home and purchasing what we hope to be our forever home. She was once again fantastic in helping us navigate the crazy world that is buying and selling (during a pandemic no less). She is very knowledgeable, thoughtful and not afraid to get dirty (she has crawled under many a crawlspace for us) . If you are looking for a realtor who knows her stuff and has your back then she is it!” – Lindsay Weldon
“We met Terri Turner and immediately hit the ground running! She was informative, efficient with our time and fun to work with. She worked to understand what we were looking for and moved fast when we found the perfect home. The turnaround from when we put our offer in was fantastic. There are always stressful moments during home buying, and trusting Terri to get us through the process was the right move. Highly recommend!” – Beth Rose
“Our realtor, Terri Turner, was outstanding! She bent over backwards for us to find us the perfect home in Durham. We were first time home buyers with our first child on the way and needed to find a home relatively quickly. At all times she had our best interest in mind, answering all our questions, responding promptly, and smoothly guiding us through the home buying process. We feel so lucky to have found Terri and we give her the highest recommendation possible!” – Trent Tyni
“We just closed on our wonderful first home with the help of Terri Turner, an incredible real estate agent and human being. We were classic first time home buyers- clueless, unsure what we wanted, and struggling to process the information overload of options on the internet. Terri made the whole process smooth for us, from helping us articulate what we really wanted to suggesting good properties to setting up showings to handling every last detail involved with the closing. We saw over 50 properties and Terri never pressured us, she just did a great job pointing out details that we might have missed. Her knowledge helped us make the right decision and stick it out until we found our dream home. She was also fantastic during our offer negotiations and closing, there are so many different inspections and contractors to manage and Terri did all the hard work for us. When a last-minute problem showed up during our final walk through she took care of it immediately so that we didn’t have to worry. She’s also a real pleasure to spend time with, down to earth with a great sense of humor (if you’re going to spend hours with someone it helps when they’re such fun to be around). I would heartily recommend her to everyone I know!” – Abigail Agoglia
“Terri Turner helped sell our condo in Carrboro in Spring 2019. She was amazing! The inspection revealed many issues that had not come to light when we bought the place in 2010. That led to countless negotiations with the HOA to make the repairs. Throughout it all Terri was an all star realtor. It was a grueling ordeal that would have been so much more difficult to endure without Terri’s unwavering optimism, sound guidance, and expert connections. I cannot recommend Terri enough as the go-to realtor in the Triangle.” – Jack Rockers
“About Terri Turner: If there were an option for an infiniti of stars in this review, I’d select that…plus 1! You will not find a more knowledgeable, patient, and good-natured realtor–or just person in general. We were first-time homebuyers, and Terri worked with us for many months, patiently showing us many dozens of homes, helping us learn what to look for in houses and how to recognize value, how to think through our own priorities in homes. She encouraged us in the down times, celebrated with us in the high times, and helped us navigate the whole process from the initial, casual house-browsing to the final day of closing–and even beyond. In fact, in an unusual circumstance, the previous owners of the house we bought needed help moving their stuff out so that we could move in. Terri took it upon herself to organize a crew of folks, come to the house, and spend an entire day moving their stuff–just so we could get moved in on time. There are several other examples of her incredible generosity and thoughtfulness–from giving up countless weekday evenings and weekends to offering to come over and help work with us in our newly bought house, or offering us a rain barrel for the new house, or just being willing to deal with my taxing indecisiveness! I know it’s cliche to say, but Terri really feels like family. She has an honest, warm, and sincere persona that calmed my anxieties and enabled me to feel confident and good about buying a house. I highly, highly, infinity-plus-1-stars recommend her.” – Robert Thornhill
“I’m from Carrboro and wanted to go local when we needed an agent. Terri really made the process easier than we were expecting. We were first time home buyers and didn’t know much about the process. Through the ups and downs of trying to buy a house, she was always there to help us and soothe our anxieties. She was very knowledgeable and had a lot of great connections/resources when we ran into some problems with a property we were interested in. We ended up in a house that we absolutely love at a price that worked for us. She came recommended to us and we highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the area. Thank you Terri Turner and team!” – Tyler Martinez
“Selling my little condo in Carrboro was not an easy decision after living there for over 10 years, but when the time came to sell and move abroad, I couldn’t have found a more wonderful realtor than Terri Turner at Weaver Street Realty in Carrboro. Terri is a truly amazing human being and a highly knowledgeable professional who helped me from A-Z with selling my home. Her team of stagers and photographers are also top-notch and worth every penny invested. If I were to ever be in the market again to sell or purchase a home in Chapel Hill or Carrboro or in the general vicinity, I would certainly return to Terri and her team. For anyone looking to buy or sell a home in Carrboro, I’d highly recommend talking to Terri Turner first. She made selling my home easy, with multiple offers coming in within a day.” – Tin Wegel
“5+ Stars!! I’ve bought & sold twice through WSR with the help of Terri Turner and Jay Parker.. both were absolutely outstanding and made the process painless and SO EASY” – Scott Crews
“Terri Turner was recommended through a friend and boy are we thankful. She is amazing. She was so kind, patient, and flexible through the process and has a very pragmatic approach. It was our first time buying a home and we knew nothing; we wouldn’t have found what we needed without her. We’d recommend her to anyone, she knows what she’s doing and she’s a joy to be around.” – Marie Agosta
“Terri Turner is the best! She was able to find us the perfect house for the right price, and good timing too. When we are ready to make our next move, we will definitely be calling her.” – Alan LeFrapper
“We used Terri at Weaver street to purchase a home site unseen, and she was fantastic. Her Skype walkthrough made us feel like we were in the home, and she knew exactly what to look for. She was always available to answer any questions from the first tour through closing and even through renovations afterwards. In this market, you need a realtor that is your advocate, and Terri was this and more!” – Derek Fogel
“Terri was amazing! We were in town for just a few days and got to see a lot of great properties. We decided on the right one for us, made the offer and everything went smoothly from there. Terri handled all of the dealings, as we were not in town, and the day after we got here we had possession of our home. Buying a home is always stressful but we had fine experience overall.” – Gilbert Benavente
“We had a terrific experience with Terri at Weaver Street Realty! She was extremely knowledgeable about the market and very thorough in her assessment of each house we viewed. She had really helpful insights throughout the search process and ultimately found us the perfect house! We could not have been more pleased with her service. If you are looking for a house in Carrboro/Chapel Hill/Durham, Weaver Street Realty and Terri Turner are the ones to choose!” – Alice Smith
“Terri Turner with Weaver Street Realty is an outstanding realtor. I was moving from a significant distance. Terri worked with me and my difficult schedule to see properties. She listened to what I needed and was looking for both in physical layout and financial considerations. She made excellent suggestions and helped provide recommendations for needed services. Terri provided constant communication throughout the process. She made the sometimes arduous process of buying a new home not only seamless but enjoyable.” – Laura Bushong
“Terri Turner is awesome! So helpful but not pushy. More like a friend than just an agent. Great experience and our first house is ace!” – Mary Bircher
“We used Weaver Street Realty, and specifically Terri Turner when looking for our first house together. Teri was attentive, patient, and fun to work with. She extends amazing effort to find homes that fit your criteria, and will drive all over God’s green earth showing you homes. Terri was very helpful, sharing her knowledge and giving us her honest opinions about the homes we looked at. She’s very personable, and has a great sense of humor. If you are looking for a new home, I recommend Terri highly – we had a great experience working with her.” – Donovan Verrill
“We needed to find a home in the area on fairly short notice, and what we had in mind was probably confusing and even contradictory. Terri Turner took the situation in hand, developed an intuitive understanding of what we were after, and narrowed down all the bewildering options to something that perfectly suited our needs. Terri gets it. Then she was tough as nails on our behalf during the negotiation and buying process. She understands the business, understands the market, and understands buyers and sellers as people. She’s patient, doesn’t get flustered in tense situations, and has a great sense of humor – and trust me, when you’re buying a house, sometimes you really need somebody with a great sense of humor. I’ve recommended Terri to many of my co-workers since we bought our house, and I’d recommend her services to anyone without reservation.” – Ken Thomas
“Terri Turner, with Weaver Street Realty, was our realtor as we began the exhaustive search for a place to call home. She knew EXACTLY what we were looking for, and did not waste our time with listings that she knew would not be in our budget, or in our taste. Professional, engaging, attentive, and knowledgeable, Terri made our experience seamless. Buying a house can be STRESSFUL, but Terri always stayed ahead of the game, guiding us through every step of the process. It could not have gone better. I recommend her to all of my friends, and we will make sure to call on her again when the time comes!” – Lori Shamblin
