Praise for Building Legacy Wealth

“Terry’s book is a proven recipe for financial success. We have been friends for 30+ years and I have followed his recipe for acquiring apartment properties and renovating them and have done so with more than 1,000 apartments in San Diego County. And I have passed on his secret sauce to hundreds of my students at UCSD Extension over the years and, they, too, have prospered and benefitted from his wisdom.”

Alan Nevin
Author of The Great Divide


“Rental housing is a unique business. With a minimal investment you can leverage an asset to archive returns far beyond your outlay. It’s also a business that needs to be managed with clear objectives. This book walks all investors from novices, through seasoned masters along a path others have successfully traveled. Building Legacy Wealth, by Terry Moore, CCIM allows the reader to learn valuable business lessons from others on their road to financial independence.”

Bob Pinnegar
President & CEO of the National Apartment Association


“I have worked with hundreds of commercial real estate brokers, many who are some of the top-performing professionals in the world. Even among them, Terry Moore stands out.

It is obvious that Terry’s calling is to help his clients create wealth, through decision-based real estate investments. He challenges himself and his clients to be intentional and to make life time choices that will matter when we are all gone.

Terry will share with you how to make a fortune, but he is more interested in helping you making a long lasting and positive difference. Spend time with the ideas in this book. The people around you will be glad you did.”

Roger J Brown, PhD

He sagely shares with us what it takes to build legacy wealth through investing in apartment buildings. His step-by-step approach helps you realize that this truly could be you!

“Terry Moore is more than a Realtor, and this book is more than a how to make money in real estate course. Terry’s approach to real estate brokerage comes through clearly in the language and tone of the book. In both cases he is aware of the long-term goal, not just racking up a single huge sale and moving on to the next client, rather he builds relationships as he helps his clients build their wealth. Many of his clients continued to come back to him deal after deal, in a business where clients seldom have much loyalty.”

Andy French
Master CREIA Inspector


“This book is like The Millionaire Next Door for the small apartment investor. A must read “

Pete Smith
Former Principal of Sunrise Management


“I appreciate the relatable story telling that makes Terry’s stewardship easy to digest sometimes complicated concepts. I’ve read my share of books on investing in residential real estate and few make it as understandable as this example. Further, his comments on Legacy Wealth is notable. In my experience, the most successful investors/owners have personal missions that include both financial and personal growth goals and have woven them together”.

Alan Pentico
Executive Director
San Diego County Apartment Association


“Terry is other focused, that is on you and your financial welfare.”

“I have known and done business with Terry since the mid 1990’s, when many of the apartment purchases at that time were REO properties. From a lender’s perspective, I appreciate that he always lays out the full scope of the transaction up front– pros and cons. This way all parties know how to approach the deal and structure the financing. He understands lenders’ concerns, and will often present a creative approach to putting a transaction together that satisfies the concerns of all parties. I have enjoyed closing many loans with Terry throughout the years.

Terry does his research in understanding the goals of his clients, their investment comfort levels, management experience or inexperience, etc., and finds the appropriate property to match those needs. Terry knows the San Diego neighborhoods and can advise a buyer as to the future planned growth and development of an area they are considering. He will address whether a property needs work and has potential for increased rents, and will advise accordingly. He considers short-term and long-term goals.

Terry is also forthcoming in sharing his experience from being in the business many years. His faith guides his principles. He is a valued and trustworthy resource for both the novice and sophisticated investor.”
