We Are Real Estate Search
Search is a journey led by a Partner or Managing Director of the firm. The process is consultative and highly collaborative. We are consultants and advisors, not mere transactors. We are your trusted guide.
From Our Founder
We created Terra Search Partners in 2006 as a boutique search firm focused exclusively on the real estate business with an absolute focus on, and commitment to, exemplary work. Most everybody will claim that goal, so I want to sincerely articulate the meaning of this focus and the guiding principals and values of Terra Search Partners.
- The senior professionals at Terra Search Partners come from the real estate business. We know the business. We understand the business. We understand the drivers. We care. This is our world and our clients are our long term peer group, so every assignment and indeed all interactions have long term consequence.
- We treat every assignment and interaction as a building block for our business and reputation. So, the stakes are high.
- Of course, our clients come first. But we work hard to treat our candidates and sources with that same level of respect. We work hard to communicate transparently and to provide meaning in interactions throughout our work including clients, candidates and sources.
- How does search work? In the model search, we call a hundred people, we interview ten, the client interviews 4-6, and we finalize with one person. But it’s rarely so cut and dry. Search more frequently follows the twists and turns that are inevitable when dealing in human endeavors. The twists and turns are where this firm shines and adds value.
