Barbara Anderson Terry

A Senior Global Real Estate Advisor and Associate Broker, Barbara began her career on the North Shore of Long Island with Daniel Gale, a Sotheby's International Realty affiliate, in 1975. She then became a partner of DG Associates, opening and managing the first office in Nassau County.

In 1990, having just moved to Manhattan, Barbara affiliated with Sotheby's International Realty at the Madison Avenue office for a short time. During the 1990s while continuing to work in the residential brokerage business, Barbara also formed a real estate investment company with a partner, called New York Investment Properties (NYIP), while simultaneously pursuing and receiving her Masters in Real Estate Development and Investment from New York University.

As of May 2001 Barbara established Anderson Realty LLC to carry on as the investment and development company, and Anderson Terry, LLC, a residential brokerage firm, which operated independently for almost eight years, before evolving into The Anderson Terry Team at Sotheby's International Realty in January 2009.

Barbara remains intensely focused on service, integrity and discretion, making her one of the most respected professionals in the industry. Over the course of approximately 30 years Barbara has sold over one billion dollars of residential real estate in New York City, Long Island and the Caribbean. She is credentialed in all three courses from NAR's Graduate Real Estate Institute, GRI 1, 11 and 111. She is also a Certified Buyer's Broker.

When not working in real estate, Barbara currently serves on the Rockefeller University Council and Women's Committee. Past charitable interests include New York City's MOMA's Contemporary Arts Council, Central Park Conservatory Woman's Committee and Tour Guide and Academic Rewards for College Students in New York City and San Francisco, CA.

While in San Francisco during the 1980s, Barbara served on the San Francisco Zoological Society Board of Directors; as Vice President for the San Francisco Opera Guild, chairing the Development Committee; on the SFMOMA Benefactor's Committee and Collector's Forum; as well as many other charitable committees.

Today, Barbara focuses more on charities revolving around neurological health issues. She supports the Bruce McKeon Research Laboratory at Rockefeller, the Bachmann Strauss Dystonia and Parkinson's Foundation, and Fountain House.

Barbara's husband, Frederick "Ted" Terry, is Senior Counsel at Sullivan & Cromwell. The Terry's live in Manhattan and East Hampton, and enjoy visiting their children and grandchildren, the Casey family, in New Canaan, CT, and their son, William "Chip" DeMeo in Hawaii. The family enjoys traveling with various groups to interesting parts of the world, as well as ski trips, golf and tennis together.
