Few words are more pleasing to new home builders than "We'd be happy to recommend you to our friends and family." And for nearly 30 years that's what homebuyers have been saying about Terry Peterson's new homes and communities in Hampton Roads.

We're pleased that so many of our customers have taken the time to express their appreciation and hope that you'll take a moment yourself to read some of these kind words.

"I am very pleased with my Terry Peterson home and love the community and would recommend these homes. I will be very happy here in the years to come...thanks!"

Thomas from Suffolk

"We love our new home and we have been very impressed with the professionalism and care of everyone we have worked with - from the sales office to the superintendent. thank you for making our first home purchase such a pleasant experience."

Erin and Rey from Suffolk, VA

"I just wanted to say that overall we are extremely pleased. The homes are beautiful and everything we had been looking for."

Brent & Alison from Virginia Beach

"I was very pleased with the entire process and all the representatives we dealt with."

Deborah from Virginia Beach

"I was very impressed with the organization and how well everything flowed. We had reserved a lot with another builder and bowed-out after watching NOTHING happen after 6 months! All of the tradesman I have come in contact with here at Linkside Cove have been very polite and professional. Thanks!"

Keith and Vanessa from Suffolk, VA

"My wife and I were the second family to move into North Shore at Ridgely Manor. Terry Peterson Residential has created a community minutes from the new Virginia Beach Town Center that will be one of the most desired locations to live in the area. Lush landscapes, beautiful lakes, and fascinating water fountains at North Shore make you feel as if you are on vacation at a luxury resort. I cannot tell enough people about North Shore; it is like a hidden paradise in Virginia Beach."

Darren and Sandra from Virginia Beach

"I am an agent and have dealt with various builders and would recommend Terry Peterson over any others. My new home is lovely."

Harriet from Virginia Beach

"I would also like you to know that I have been very impressed with my new home during construction. All the extra details that are included could have easily been eliminated, but they certainly make a difference. It is obvious that you care about the homes you build and that you want the owner to be happy in them. Again, thank you for providing me with a home where I will be happy and one I'll truly enjoy. If the need ever arises that I must move, I will certainly look for another Terry-Peterson community. I will also highly recommend your home to anyone looking..."

Richard from Virginia Beach

"...the builder has done an outstanding job with the homes and the attention to the buyer's concerns. You have provided dream homes for buyers at a reasonable price."

Kay from Virginia Beach

"...we have greatly enjoyed our home. The attention to detail is more than we had expected. Your site superintendent and the quality of work done by your subcontractors are to be commended. As first time buyers, we had some trepidation concerning the purchase process, but you, your sales staff, all of the check lists, and informational meeting made it easier than anticipated. Thank you so much for providing such a lovely new home."

Burt & Anita from Virginia Beach

"As first time homebuyers, my husband and I were treated amazingly well from the first time we stepped foot in the sales office to the day that we signed on the dotted line at Shuttleworths. Every step along the way people were patient and willing to answer all our questions."

Katie & Jim from Virginia Beach

"We were very pleased to be a part of The Commons community. This home was exactly what we had been looking for, and we are very thankful to get it!"

James & Maryanne from Virginia Beach

"Terry Peterson was excellent to work with and I love my new home. Thank you for everything."

Payton from Virginia Beach

"This is my first brand new home. Everyone on the staff associated with the building of this home has been great. I really appreciated the time that was taken on the various walkthroughs. The quality in this home is absolutely wonderful. Various architectural items like rounded corners make it very elegant."

Pamela from Virginia Beach

"I have owned homes before and have gone through the home building process, but I have never been led through it with such openess and attention to detail - from the women in the sales office who I first made contract with to each and every person I have encountered so far. I have not yet met anyone with an attitude that made me feel like I was bothering them or asking a stupid question. Everyone's attitude has been "Let me do what I can to help you" or "Let me find you the answer." The on-site supervisor who did my walkthroughs answered my questions tirelessly and cheerfully and noted all my complaints without argument. Finally, not enough good can be said about Linda and Jenny. There is not high enough praise for their tireless efforts on my behalf, their long hours and their ever-cheerful demeanor. I felt like they were always right on top of the events that were happening concerning the progress of my condo. Considering all that was going on around them and their many responsibilities, the level of personal attention they were able to give was incredible! From beginning to end, this has been an almost effortless experience on my part - the hallmark of quality and caring in a business."

Nancy from Virginia Beach

"The home design, amenities and cost were superb and resulted in a very satisfying home buying experience. Thank you, Terry Peterson, for being innovative and reliable."

Patricia from Virginia Beach

"..the sales process (Linda Gwaltney) and the walkthrough with your site managers (twice) were most satisfactory. These are incredibly approachable people. We even had to postpone twice as my husband was called away on business and at no point were we treated with the impatience I was feeling! We are delighted with our property."

Jan from Isle of Wight

"I would recommend a Terry Peterson home to anyone. I love my home. It has everything I wanted, and more. I wanted all on one floor, a garage, a home with a small private yard. In addition, I got 3 bedrooms, a screened porch and an eat-in Kitchen. I could not find all these amenities anywhere in Tidewater. I looked everywhere. I was delighted when I saw the Pagan River. It is perfect for me. I am very pleased with the quality of my home, too. The area is lovely, too."

Susan in Isle of Wight

"Eddie and I are very pleased with our decision to purchase at Lighthouse Commons. We are extremely pleased with the courtesy and professionalism of all the staff from Eleanor Hammonds at the models to everyone we have worked with to date. If we had to start over, we wouldn't change a thing."

Eddie and Jean from Isle of Wight
