A sharp wit, an extensive knowledge of the Bay Area from a father’s perspective, a keen eye for utilizing online marketing to assist clients buy and sell properties, and a strong desire to help others, all set Rob Terry above the rest. Rob brings with him an excellent knowledge of the Bay Area real estate market and neighborhoods, specifically the Peninsula where he grew up and still has strong ties. He is familiar with what the neighborhoods have to offer, the schools, and of course what to do for fun!

Rob has always enjoyed helping people as well as remodeling and fixing homes. Real estate is a perfect combination of his two passions. It is no surprise that he thrives on helping others, as his initial career path was in criminal justice.  He grew up on the Peninsula in Foster City and graduated from San Mateo High School. He pursued his first career in criminal justice after graduating from Cal State Hayward, with a BS in Criminal Justice.

Rob soon realized that his talent and passion lied in real estate and has been a Realtor since 2012. “I have always liked helping people and appreciated looking at and fixing homes. This is a great combination of the two!” Soon after he became a Realtor, Rob joined Highland Partners, primarily because he was attracted to the family oriented vibe of the agency. Rob thrives on working in a real estate firm that encourages a work life balance.

Having this balance is important to Rob as he has a four-year-old son, his “little daredevil,” who he likes to skateboard with and pursue other high-energy sports! When he is not helping his clients buy or sell their dream home, he spends time with his son. They enjoy hobbies including snowboarding, exploring Bay Area neighborhoods, rooting for the Giants and playing rugby, soccer and baseball. Rob can provide helpful insight into great neighborhoods to live in based on your family’s needs, and in understanding the sometimes complicated school district systems of the Bay Area.

A few of Rob’s favorite Bay Area spots are Castle Rock State Park when exploring the outdoors, and Burma Super Star restaurant when appreciating all that the Bay Area foodie mecca has to offer! Rob loves the Bay Area because he can be at the beach in 20 minutes, the woods in 10 and snowboarding in a few hours. He appreciates having unlimited access to excellent shopping, and fantastic restaurants ranging from Michelin star cuisine to local hole in the wall cafes. “The weather is beautiful, and there is so much to do. We have three international airports within 30 minutes of each other, beautiful homes, great schools, and a diverse community! I love helping clients make their dream home and community a reality!”

Rob Terry is so knowledgeable and was willing to go to any length to assure that we got exactly the home we wanted.  Actually, we think he may be the most extraordinary real estate agent on the entire planet!”
