After twenty years of owning her own company, Charlotte Terry Real Estate, Inc., as a buyer’s agent, Charlotte merged with Alex MacWilliam, Inc.

She is a nature nut. As a Florida Master naturalist, Charlotte can often be found squiring clients on outdoor adventures, kayaking on the Indian River, fishing at Blue Cypress Lake, tracking wild animals in the St. Sebastian Buffer Preserve, or getting down and dirty at the annual bull auction at the Adams' Ranch. She also has proudly served on the Board of McKee Botanical Gardens.

Patty Valdes


Patty Valdes is a 34 year resident of Vero Beach, Fl. who has over three decades of experience in real estate. Her love for and roots in real estate run deep. Her Dad was a residential and commercial Real Estate Broker in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, who advised Patty to go into the business as Vero Beach transformed from a small beach community into a quiet hub for new home buyers and retirees alike.

She has two children both living in Florida. 


With over ten years of onsite sales at Grand Harbor, a golf, tennis and marina development, her experience in this community and others like it is invaluable.   Patty has assisted hundreds of clients throughout Indian River County since then. She prides herself on assisting these clients not only with their real estate needs but also with introducing them to the Vero Beach community as a whole. This hands-on approach has led to numerous invaluable referrals from friends and clients.

Patty was in the first class presented in the United States by the National Association of Realtors to earn certification in the Green Sustainable Property Designation.


As a fan of the beautiful Treasure Coast weather, you can typically find Patty outdoors when she is not with her clients. She enjoys walking the bridge and Riverside Park, going to the beach with her grandson, doing yoga, throwing the Frisbee for her rescue dog, Herald, planting fruits and vegetables and gathering eggs at her nearby farm.

So if you want to work with someone who doesn’t mind getting her hands dirty or walking the extra mile, give
Patty a call!
