One size does not fit all and I am so glad. I Love the opportunity to work with so many different types of properties, and equally, the buyers searching for just that right home. That one that checks off most of the “Must Haves” and “Non negotiables” .

I service McHenry County and surrounding communities.

Terri Hubbard - John Greene Realtor

assisted living services Terri Hubbard - John Greene Realtor

“Matchmaker.” Throughout my working life, I have been a matchmaker. Currently that means matching people with the right-size home of their dreams – big enough to make those beautiful memories, or maybe small enough to have more time for fun and sun! Earlier, as a school principal and teacher, the matchmaking involved matching students and their families with programs and methods to ensure their success. Considering the needs, wants, and special qualities of each person and family has been my guiding force.

I have had the good fortune to live in three states and one other country, but my favorite place has been raising our beautiful family here in the Naperville area these past 30 years. We still enjoy visiting our favorite places, as well as exploring new and exciting ones in the area!

It has always been my goal and dream to help others achieve THEIR goals and dreams. Whether volunteering for various non-profit groups, holding most offices in school organizations, being a band mom for 13 years, or just being a good friend and neighbor, I know how much more we can achieve together. It is my honor and my privilege to share my experience and knowledge with my clients, and with their friends and family that they so kindly refer to me.
