About Terry & Barbara Hughes

My wife Barbara and I have been married for over 30 years and blessed with two children. As we are both military veterans, we appreciate being in a military friendly, patriotic community. We reside in the beautiful, twin river, city of New Braunfels, Texas. Our home is not far from San Antonio, Texas, which is also known as “Military City USA”. The region has a nearly 300-year military heritage. San Antonio is home to Joint Base San Antonio, which includes Fort Sam Houston, Camp Bullis, Randolph and Lackland Air Force bases. The Department of Defense’s largest medical center, Brooke Army Medical Center is also there. In addition to the support for active duty and veterans in central Texas, we also appreciate the family friendly, multi-cultural, German and Hispanic influences of the area. When we aren’t helping folks buy or sell a home, we enjoy outdoor activities of camping and boating with our family and furry companions.

Contractor to realtor was a natural transition for Terry. Frequently, his contracting services were needed by people wanting to sell their homes as well as buyers after purchasing a home. He recognized that clients were often dissatisfied with their real estate experience and their agent’s performance. The values of “Honesty – Integrity-Reliability were needed in the real estate industry too!

At first, Terry operated both the painting/decorating and real estate business. His reputation for “Honesty-Integrity-Reliability” as a real estate agent grew, as did his real estate clientele. Terry decided to sell his contracting business and devote full time to real estate in 2005. “Honesty-Integrity-Reliability” are the foundational values of his real estate business today.

A bit about Barbara:

Barbara has worked alongside Terry in both the painting/decorating and real estate business as an administrative assistance. She developed her organizational and managerial skills during 22-years active duty and reserve military service. Barbara initially enlisted into the U.S. Coast Guard and ultimately commissioned to the officer corps of U.S. Air Force after she obtained a Bachelor of Science in Nursing Degree. She retired from the military in 2002 to focus on her family and provide greater support to Terry and the real estate business. Barbara obtained her real estate license in 2019 in order to provide even greater expertise to the family real estate business.
