    Real Estate

Terranea Real Estate began as the sales team for luxury developer-owned Villas and Casitas at Terranea Resort. When the available properties recently sold out, the firm transitioned to serving as the real estate team for owners looking to resell their Villa or Casita. Terry Niemann, who worked with Terranea Real Estate for eight years right after the resort opened, left her post to sell homes at The Residences of Rolling Hills Country Club community. After the successful sell-out of those 114 homes, she returned to Terranea to help launch the new full-service residential brokerage along with Ted Lennon, senior vice president of Lowe—Terranea’s original developer.

What is new for Terranea Real Estate in 2023?

2023 is a monumental year for Terranea Real Estate. With only the occasional resales available at Terranea, we’re now offering our real estate services to buyers and sellers across the entire Palos Verdes Peninsula—making Terranea Real Estate a full-service brokerage. Our headquarters will still be at Terranea Resort, and we’ll be able to leverage our access to the thousands of out-of-town visitors who stay at Terranea throughout the year—many of whom are charmed by the South Bay and Peninsula and desire to call the area home.

Also new this year is a waiting list for those interested in buying a Terranea Villa or Casita. Due to our engagement with guests who have the desire to own a home here, when we don’t have the inventory, we are still able to introduce them to homes across the Hill. This gives us an edge over other brokerages.

What is your history in the South Bay?

As a longtime resident, I raised my children here and was very involved in their schools’ parent associations, community service groups and sports leagues. I am delighted to help clients navigate the different neighborhoods and unique personalities of the communities in the South Bay and on the Hill.

How does your background enhance your work ?

I have a background in marketing and was formerly the president of an advertising agency specializing in real estate. I like to view our clients’ listed homes from the perspective of a buyer. When finding a new home for a client, I focus on their lifestyle and needs. It’s all about matching the right property with the right people. My designations include Palos Verdes Specialist, which allows me to give our clients the unique history and insight into each of our four cities on the Hill: Palos Verdes Estates, Rancho Palos Verdes, Rolling Hills and Rolling Hills Estates. Based on sales volume, I was named a Real Estate All-Star top producer by Los Angeles Magazine for 2021, 2022 and 2023.
