Personal Quotes:

Our family life motto is – Think and Practice

“Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t–you’re right.” – Henry Ford

“When you are not practicing, remember, someone somewhere is practicing, and when you meet him he will win.” – Ed Macauley quotes (Basketball Player, b.1928)


I have been working in the home business for 33 years – initially working for a couple of residential building construction firms and ultimately my own design firm, Terri Test Design for the last 30 years. I know the housing industry from the raw land, through design, construction, and move-in. I take the time to listen to my client’s wants and needs and truly treasure the relationships that are formed. Verbal, written and visual communication is the most important aspect of my job. The more you know about your client, the closer the solution will be to their needs and wants and many of my clients are repeat customers. I graduated from Texas A&M in 1979 with a degree in Environmental Design and became a Certified Professional Building Designer after passing a comprehensive 20-hour exam from the National Council of Building Designer Certification (NCBDC) in 2007. Having lived in Austin for almost 50 years, I have seen the city and surrounding communities grow and thrive while keeping its small town charm and appeal. No matter where my travels lead, I love coming home to the Texas Hill Country and our home in Allandale. My husband, Bruce and I have raised our daughter and son here in this community taking advantage of the inviting lakes, and beautiful hills. I enjoy spending time with my family, travel, photography, floating in the swimming pool, cheering on my Aggies, watching soccer and spoiling our Shih Tzu and St. Bernard!


“It is difficult for me to express how much I appreciate the time investment Terri Test put into helping me find my new home. She listened carefully to my needs and wants, and never pressured me to “settle” for anything less. We found my ideal home but I had never purchased brand new construction and it was a different process. Terri was very knowledgeable and it was great having her in my corner. I’m grateful I had a real estate professional like Terri.”

“In November 2014, my husband and I were in the market for rental property in Central Austin and found a duplex on Zillow that seemed to fit our needs. We e-mailed the selling realtor, Terri Test, and heard back from her right away. From then on, Terri was highly responsive and professional. We didn’t have a realtor of our own so she ended up helping us through every step of the process while protecting the interests of the seller. She even connected us with a lender when our first loan application was rejected for a minor reason. We closed on the property two months after our initial contact with Terri and she was pleasant and conscientious from start to finish. I definitely recommend her!”
