Terri Barnes offers a unique and distinctive approach to real estate as a Realtor at Kentwood Real Estate, Cherry Creek. With over 30 years’ experience working with Buyers, Sellers, and Developers as the owner of TB Image by Design, a full-service Interior Design Firm, Terri blends high-level service and customer representation. Terri has an analytical approach, great project management, and extensive sourcing with local Colorado immersion. With a proven sales and negotiation track record and a focus on value, Terri is someone Buyers and Sellers can trust with their real estate investments.

Leveraging design for Buyers and Sellers:
While Terri is well known for her record-breaking sales with luxury property transactions, she has also helped clients reimagine more modest properties for improved function and return on interior design. Terri’s multifaceted background allows her to see more options in any given property and present them to her clients. Her forward-thinking approach allows her clients to identify and enhance a property’s integrity while reflecting on their lifestyle, meeting their needs, and increasing its value over time.

Terri handles interior merchandising (staging) for her clients wishing to sell their homes. Her interior design, sourcing, and project management services are part of her real estate value to Sellers. Keeping the overall investment budget and anticipated return a priority, Terri will recommend changes to space, repurpose and edit current furnishings, and suggest key purchases to transform the residence for maximal price per square foot and minimal days on market.

Versatility and broad market understanding:
Terri is at the forefront of real estate development, construction, remodel, and national home design trends. She’s worked on real estate transactions in multiple capacities and under varying market conditions. She listens closely, distills complexity, finds creative solutions, and diligently tailors her marketing and search efforts to her clients’ specific and broader goals. She has consulted on projects ranging from high end extensive remodels to multi-unit developments to the historic preservation of landmark buildings. She works with all types of residential properties from median-priced single-family homes to city condos and lofts to mountain retreats.

Community immersion – international exposure:
With deep roots in Colorado as a 4th generation Denverite, Terri specializes, has lived and works in Washington Park, Hilltop, Denver Country Club, Polo, LoHi neighborhoods of Denver, Englewood, Cherry Hills Village, Greenwood Village, Castle Pines, Parker, Arvada, Golden, and Boulder. Before her real estate career, Terri was a development director for public and private education and was extensively involved in the growth and development of youth hockey and lacrosse in Colorado. Clients with school-aged children find her a valuable resource. Terri’s additional community involvement has been with Warren Village, American Heart Association, Project Cure, and other organizations.

Terri has lived and traveled extensively nationally and internationally. This unique combination of local intelligence and global exposure helps Terri connect with and advise her clients, many of whom are new to Colorado. Terri is a true partner who can guide her clients through every detail of a Colorado real estate transaction, a value in helping Buyers translate their lifestyle vision into reality in the Denver market, or Sellers create broader market appeal to both local and recent transplants.

Dec 11 - Terri L. Barnes, Kentwood Real Estate


Terri has helped me reimagine my 1940's Denver bungalow into a home that better reflects me, my current lifestyle and possibility for sale at some future point. I was aware that many of her clients were working with much grander structures and budgets than mine - but she brings amazing experience, exposure, sourcing knowledge, and repurposing ideas for enhancing its charm and personalization. She is a keen student of the Colorado real estate market and keeps abreast and on the cutting edge of development, construction, remodel and design trends. My home value has increased, my home was updated under a very affordable budget. Terri is a joy to work with, extremely well connected within her industry and her service approach and end product are high value and unique.
