JD Terry
VP of Mortgage Lending

I started my career in the Mortgage Industry in early 2003. I wanted to work in a challenging industry with the opportunity to help others achieve their financial dream of owning their own home. I can not think of any other field where I would have the chance to help clients daily, with the largest financial decision of their lives at that time. With over 14 years of experience, I have developed a very enhanced knowledge of the mortgage process, and what it takes to deliver an experience like no other! My father served 26 Yrs. in the military, and my brother is currently on active duty. My experiences growing up in a military family have really enabled me to hone in on important characteristics that directly apply to my business. Being respectful, being timely, being committed to excellence, being appreciative for what you have, being trustworthy, and knowing that anything worth doing is worth doing it right the first time is just a few backbones to the way I approach my business for my clients and referral partners. I have lived in the Wilmington area since high school. I went to the University of NC at Wilmington where I received my BS and a minor in Marketing. I also met my wife, Beth, at UNCW as well. We have been married for 16 Yrs. and have three beautiful children; Emerson, Anderson, and Jackson. We love the Wilmington area and the surrounding counties! Where else can you have the beach, the intercoastal waterway, a vibrant and historic downtown, and the country all within 25 min? We truly are lucky to live and work where do! Every day when I come to work I am so excited to do what I love! Helping clients to buy their new home is such a rewarding feeling! I want to make sure that when we close I have a client for life, I want our clients to be able to rave about their experience and to feel like they are family. The home is where your heart is, and family is what makes it a home….
