Dear Terry,

I am emailing you because of your daily Bible verse! As a Christian, I love it, and love the fact that you put your faith on your site. I have a 1993 Riverchase 14’ X 60’ aluminum hull, 2 BR, 2BA, with twin diesel I/O with Bravo II’s; and a 12.5 KW Westerbeke gen. It has upward and lower controls, a 2-ton HVAC, flat-screens LR and both BR’s. Boat is in great shape, and is turn -key. She started life as the last houseboat built by Riverchase in Demopolis, Alabama in 1993, and has always been in fresh-water. She is docked off my home on the Black Warrior River. Kids are grown, and my wife and I simply don’t use it; so it’s time to let her go to a good home.

Please contact me at your convenience.

Thank you, Queen Terry,

Your pics both inside and out are an easy way to scroll through to find exactly what we are looking for! We have just started to look, but will buy from you. Thank you, you are the Queen!

Ahoy,
Thank You for the kind words. I love helping people who want to buy a boat. The education process is so important and I want the boat that is best for you. Together we will find just that right one. I look forward to working with you.

Hi Terry,

Recently we purchased a houseboat through broker Ceysha Clark. First, she was willing to meet us on Sunday afternoon to show us potential boats which impressed us. We also found her to be very knowledgeable about all aspects of the purchase. This is our first houseboat so we had lots of questions for her. Once we decided which boat that we wanted to purchase, she was able to help move it along enabling us to close in 3 days. I assume that is very unusual in your business. Even after the closing she went to the title bureau for us on her day off so that we didn’t have to make another trip from Ohio during the week. Really, all we had to do is show up and start enjoying our boat! Ceysha says that is her job but I would say she has definitely went above and beyond. I also looked at a few boats at Dale Hollow with Jake and Tonya and would also like to say that they were very cordial and accommodating as well as they showed me boats well into the evening on a Saturday night. I would have certainly done business with them as well if the situation had been different for us. We are looking forward to doing more business with your group as we have a cruiser that we will need brokerage services for soon. We also hope to be able to be able to move up to another houseboat someday and will certainly work through your group. Again, thanks for all of your help and for making this transaction smooth. It is obvious that the dedication to your customers starts at the top.

Sincerely,
Dennis and Laurie

You sold our boat and closed within only 2 weeks. We wish we would have listed with you a long time ago, instead of trying to sell our houseboat on our own. If we had, it would have saved us so much money, because now we have paid our slip fee for another year, which is non-refundable. Thank you so much. Now we can go ahead and buy the Florida condo we have been wanting.

Sue and Jack

Hello Terry,

Great website, My wife and I have been scanning the Internet for the right houseboat for us.
This one looks like the right size with the interior we like.

Thanks, John

Ahoy, Terry,

"Whoopin it Up" has new owners as of today. Deb and I want to thank you for thirteen of the most enjoyable years we could have ever imagined. Almost seems like a dream. We sat down after this past summer and decided that it's time to do something different, like travel, and look for a warmer winter climate (yes I looked at the houseboat in Bradenton.) If it flies or floats, we'll rent it. Conley has some good looking rentals Hope you, Tom, and the girls are all well. We'll keep in touch.

Dear Terry,

We just closed the sale of our third boat through your company and we would like to commend your broker, Lisa Blakeman on her outstanding work. She is an excellent representative of your company. Lisa kept us informed throughout the transactions. She took care of all the details that needed to be addressed and was just a real pleasure to work with. If you ever need a referral letter about Lisa and our experience with her please contact us,

Thank you,

Terry and Jake,

I wanted to write you both a quick note and say thanks for all the work you did in selling my boat. I'm not sure if all boat sales are as involved as mine, but I can honestly say without Jake's help and willingness to do whatever it took to consummate the sale I would have never been able to sell the boat. From working with the buyer, researching boat shipping, arranging for mechanical repairs after the marine survey, to actually helping in cleaning out the boat of my personal items before the buyer picked up the boat....Jake did it all. He went above and beyond my expectations and whoever he represents can be assured they have the very best.

Thanks again and I wish you both all the best,
Calvin

March 2014
Terry,

Once again, thank you so much for all of your help and consistently quick responses to all of my questions. You have definitely been a pleasure to work with and know how to treat a client. If you ever need a very positive reference, you may feel free to use me. I wish you calm winds and following seas,

Thank you for your reply. I'll check out those links and figure out the direction I'm heading.

Cheers,

Hi Lisa,

Just wanted to say thanks from Gary and me on the sale of our boat. All of your help made for a speedy and painless sale. The use of the pontoon was so nice of you and such a big help in getting our belongings off of the boat.

As much as I hated to give her up the time was right and who knows, maybe we will be calling you in a few years for you to help us find another boat.

Since the mid-90's when Terry sold us our first houseboat, through you selling our last boat we have never been disappointed with the service Houseboats Buy Terry gives to your customers.

Thanks again,
Linda & Gary

July 2012
Dear Jake:

I want to thank you for your assistance in purchasing my boat.

 I am sure that there are many people like us who are somewhat apprehensive about the information being provided on a used boat but in our purchase, I felt that you were completely straight forward and honest, and provided the necessary information.

Further, thank you for your help in dealing with the transporter; you went above and beyond, taking your personal time to accommodate him which was especially helpful to us since we were so far away.

You may use me as a reference and in fact I would be happy to talk to other prospective buyers; please have them call me.

Again, thank you for all your help.
Very truly yours,
Richard Kolb

Terry,

We just wanted to commend Houseboats Buy Terry in the sale of our houseboat. We were very impressed with the pictures and the information that Joyce Griffin put on the site. She informed us and gave us the information that we needed to sell. She was a good broker that brought the buyer in and spent a lot of time with him, and when the survey was done, she was right there with us all the way. Thank you again for your service and thank Joyce again for the fine services she provided us.

Sincerely Ed & Janis

Wanted to tell you we met Jake and wow he is a great person! We loved everything about him, we kinda were lost and he came to rescue us ! He showed us the boats we wanted to see and took a personal tone to all of the
showings! If we were to buy a boat from Houseboats Buy Terry we would want him to sell it to us! It is very rare we find a young man with the love of his job.
He sells with truth! Good job in having him.

Hi Terry,

First, I want to compliment you for running the top houseboat brokerage in the industry! We purchased our first boat from Lisa 3 years ago, and sold it with Jake in less than 24 hours!
Anyway, we are anxious to get into a new one and this Horizon at Conley Bottom looks very nice. row

Terry,

Thank you for your timely reply. I have to say I was very impressed by your honesty on the phone the other day concerning the Burns Craft on Lake Barkley. The last thing I ever expected to hear from a broker was "That is not the right boat for you and I won't sell it to you". I would like to get out the door without spending more than 40k. This will be a starter boat for me. You have all the specifications I am looking for correct otherwise. Nashville area is what I am looking for, but not landlocked on the Percy Priest. I want to be able to cruise the rivers when I have the time. Oddly enough, I received the latest copy of Houseboat Magazine in the mail today.
You have a great write up in there!

Hi Terry,

Just came across your email and wanted to let you know that we are thoroughly enjoying the '85 Landau that we bought through Houseboats by Terry.
Even though it is a 7 hour trip from Akron, OH to Norris, TN we have found the trip to be worth it once we are down on the dock. The Landau is a great home away from home.
Thank you both for all the help in making the purchase a very satisfied one.
Sharon and Chuck

Terry,

We want to thank you for being so nice to us during our houseboat buying experience. Most people would have sold us the boat and left us to our own devices, but you didn't do that and for that we are truly & gratefully appreciative.

Thank You,
Bo & Vickie


March 2009
Terry,

Dee and I want to thank you for your efforts. It was refreshing to find an honest and helpful broker. We certainly will look to you should we purchase a boat in the future. We will also recommend you to our friends. Please feel free to use us as a reference. You certainly are working for your clients and customers.

Thanks, Gene

Terry,

I just wanted to take a moment and tell you how much I and my family appreciated all the help that Jake Pyzik has given us. We met Jake on Saturday at Sulphur Creek with full intentions of closing a deal that day, however much to our dismay it fell through. However Jake has given us tips on boats contacted us when he has something that he thinks might accommodate our family. However we found another boat that was for sale through an individual that would accommodate our family.

I just wanted to say thank you for having a great sales team and someone who is not pushy. We all appreciated that and we enjoyed working with Jake and I have recommended him to several friends that are looking for boats this summer.

You have an excellent web site and all of your information is up to date. Again, thank you both for all of the help from keeping us informed on boats, to referring a boat mover.

Thanks,
Stephanie

Please thank Lisa (Blakeman) for spending the day with us on Saturday. It was
SOOOO cold but she was a great host! After looking at boats in 5 states we
have narrowed our choices to 4 boats, the good news is you have 2 of the
boats we like! Both Stella and I felt your company has been the best to work
with so I want to make an offer on our 2nd favorite boat- the 1998
Lakeview.
Terry thanks again, your company has been great to work with.

Hi Terry,

My husband & I used to houseboat for several years on the Herrington Lake.
I enjoyed looking at your beautiful houseboats, and also went to a link where you can
rent them. I'm totally amazed at how much can be packed into the new "big"
houseboats. WOW!! They are incredible!!!
Just wanted to tell you that I enjoyed your website. I won't be looking to buy---just
curiosity. You have a very nice website!!

Bobbie in Lexington, KY.

Just want you to know how much we have enjoyed working with you. Your

Good morning!  I currently live in McCook, Nebraska. Although not etched in stone, I'm contemplating moving to the Fort Myers, Florida area and wondered if you might have connections that would enable me to purchase a houseboat in that area. I'm interested in living on the boat year round.

After hours of searching on the web, I thought your site was the best.

Thanks,
John

October, 2006
Terry,

My name is Troy and I have been looking for houseboats on
the web for quite some time. My purpose is so that I have a better knowledge
of "What to look for" and "How much am I going to get for my dollar".
Your website has enormous amounts of products for any dollar amount. I like
your site very much and will use it to help me stay informed, Thank you.
 I have questions about houseboats in general and would like your opinion please. What is the R-factor on the insulation of a houseboat. I know this answer will vary, but there should be some kind of industry standard. The reason I am asking is I want to know if I can live year round on the boat. April-October on the water, October-April off the water. I live in North Dakota and that means REALLY cold, approximately coldest in January and temps.
are around 0-10deg. average. If you could help me out on that, I would be very grateful.

Thank you again,

Troy

Hey Lisa (Blakeman),

I want to thank you all for getting my boat sold. I really appreciate
your professionalism. I'll be back into the "boat business", and if I don't build another one,
I'll certainly seek you out. You have a fine company.

Thanks again,

Hello Jake,

I am in New Zealand and am amazed at the selection and quality of your Houseboats.
I have some questions :

-We are looking for one to live on and do our boating in the Hauraki Gulf out of Auckland. There are many Islands and sheltered bays but moderate seas sometimes have to be crossed.

-What would be the cost to ship say a 40' one to New Zealand ?

I look forward to your comments.
Regards,
Emil and Barbara

September, 2006
Dear Terry,

After talking to Bob some more, we've decided that we really need for a trailer to come with the boat; we actually have an appointment 1 week from tomorrow to go up to Northern AZ to check out a cabin cruiser. If it doesn't work out, we'll be sure to keep your website in mind while we continue on our search for our "dream boat". You have one of the best websites that I've come across and believe me, I've spent MEGA hours searching.

Thanks again,
Cheryl

Dear Terry,

I can't tell you how my wife and I appreciate all that you and Elizabeth have done for us!
You are TRUE!!! professionals!! I will be down this weekend and stop by to see you. I owe you more than the contract fee, you all went way out of the way to sell our boat!
Talk to you soon.

THANKS AGAIN FOR EVERYTHING!

Terry,

I was just sitting here on the back deck of the Cumberland Classic I bought off you last fall, watching the sunset on the lake, and was thinking of the day I decided to buy this boat. So I thought I’d shoot you and email to say thanks. I named her the Margaret Elizabeth after my grandmothers. I have made a few changes too, I put a flat screen TV on the wall and put a fireplace in the space where the TV was, it’s the talk of the dock here. I am planning to add a flybridge sometime soon. Anyways, hope all is well at Lake Cumberland.

Hi Terry,
Just a quick intro and to let you know how much my wife and I love
your web-page. We are constantly scanning it and the boats, dreaming
of the day we can move back south and buy us a "live aboard" houseboat.

We are joining my brother and his family this May at Dale Hollow
(Cedar Hill Resort) for a short 1 week vacation and have already
reserved a 50 footer for the stay. Cant hardly wait!

We have been living in Nebraska since my retirement from Uncle Sam's
Canoe Club (I say that in jest - best damn Navy in the world) but
lately both of us have been missing not only the weather down there,
but also the people, customs and lifestyle. I sometimes call my
brother just to hear the southern accent...is that homesick or what?

Anyway, when we are ready to purchase our houseboat, rest assured you
and your company will be the first to hear from us!

Sincerely,
Paul

Terry,

Great selections!  This is the best website I've found for used houseboats.  Do you have an idea what the cost would be to transport a 16 x 70 houseboat to Lake Texhoma, on the Texas/Oklahoma border?
 
Thanks,
 Bruce

March 2006
Terry,

I would like to say thank you to both you and your husband for the information you provided and your time. It is easy to see why your business is successful. I would absolutely recommend your business to anyone looking to purchase a used houseboat. Let me know if I can assist you in any way in the future. I will also be contacting the financing and insurance folks that you introduced me to at the show. Thanks again for your help. Paul.

Once again it has been great working with you, and we will continue to refer anyone we

was a good fit for us. Maybe next time. And we all know that there will
be a next time!!

Take Care,

Hi Terry,

Just a quick note to say it was a pleasure meeting you and to thank you
for the professional and courteous service you provided during the purchase
of my boat. I am truly grateful for the patience you demonstrated.

Thanks again, and I will tell all of my envious friends where they can
go to get a boat of their own.

Terry,

We just wanted to take a moment to say thank you for taking your time to show us various houseboats and spend so much time with us, this past Memorial Day Weekend. We really do appreciate it.
Just to refresh you memory we are the couple from Gatlinburg, TN and we looked at the 2004 84ft boat among others. You were nice enough to arrange for us a pass to look at the Boats over in the campground area on Pier 5.
We are very interested in what you have to offer and will be back to Monticello soon. We have narrowed down some of the issues we discussed and would like for you to keep a look out for us. We have decided that we wish to stay around 57 ft. in lenght and 14 ft or wider beam. Remember we have 2 small dogs so we need steps to the top deck that are Friendly. 3 bedrooms, Twin engines, and nicely appointed inside.
Obviously we still have many questions and look forward to meeting with you again. You helped us in so many ways and again we wish to say "Thanks."
Stan & Linda

Dear Terry,

We wanted to thank you for lending an ear and uttering words of advice throughout the sale of our boat. We are well aware that you are quite busy, but you took time to offer your services to us when we were not buying a boat from you. It was nice to know someone so knowledgeable was available to answer questions and would provide honest answers. The sale of the boat was rocky at times, but it worked out in the end.

We enjoyed looking at boats with you at Conely Bottom. We recently bought a boat at Grove Marina. We will contact you again in a few years when we are looking for another boat.

Thank you, again,
Dominique and Jeff

I’ve got the Spring Fever and I was browsing your website. I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed going through the Photo Albums that you have. The pictures are heart warming on a cold, dreary day.  Hope everything is going well for all. Have a great year and hope to see you.

Terry,

It was a pleasure for Pam and I to meet you at the Houseboat Expo Friday night. As we are total novices in the area of houseboats and the purchasing of one. It was comforting to talk to someone who understands our position. We are very serious about purchasing a houseboat and enjoying a new lifestyle. We are looking forward to spending some time with you looking at the boats you have available.

Again, thanks for your time Friday night. We were beginning to feel a bit overwhelmed.

First, before anything else, I want to make sure and thank you for the
wonderful job you have done for us in securing our new boat. Being a first
time Houseboater, your help has been very important in allowing us to make
what I think has been a very good decision.

Thanks,
Doug

Terry,

Chris was very complimentary on you and how you do business. I feel that we were very lucky that Laura happened to pick the boat she did so that we have the opportunity to work with the best in the business. Thanks for all your help, and I look forward to seeing you again on Sunday !

Thanks,
Doug

Terry,

Jackie delivered the houseboat yesterday. I had him go ahead and paint the bottom even though it might have held another year or two. Anyway, it looks great, Jackie is a great guy to work with and I would highly recommend him. He said he would come get it and paint it again next time. My wife and I are quite pleased with the boat, my "neighbors" at the lake were quite impressed as well. Hope to meet you in person someday. Thanks for the tee shirts as well. I really have enjoyed reading the scriptures on your web site, I pull it up all most every day, keep it up. Maybe in a few years when I retire we can open up the Norris Lake division of Houseboats Buy Terry!!!!!!!! Thanks again for everything.
God speed, Tom and Geneva

Ahoy,

Thanks for your kind hospitality. Whether we buy through you or not (and I am 'leaning' toward it -- but want to crunch the numbers and the pluses and minuses with Jim) I want you to know that we've always appreciated your knowledge and support in this process. You’re a salesperson, as you should be, but at some level, I think you really do want the customer to end up with the 'right boat' for them. That means a lot.

Hello,

I'm Todd and I'm the guy that called Terry Sat. evening
wondering if she thought I could get a loan on an older boat.
It's a 1971 Lazy Days. Its sounds like a steel considering what they
are selling for.
I have A+ credit. Yet still is difficult finding financing due
to the age. Based on the net and all the houseboat forums I've skimmed, Terry
is the best of the best. I don't know where else to turn w/ that
said.

Thank you for taking the time to help me,
Todd

Hi Terry,

I  would be very interested in the above boat if it is still for sale. I am in the UK but I am prepared to come over to view it. The key question is I want to take it to Jamaica.  Do you know of any way freight/shipping companies etc. that would take it to Negril for me and at what cost. I am looking for a houseboat now, and check your website every day, my only problem is getting it to Jamaica.  Can you assist.

 Thanks,
 Mr I abdool

Terry, thank you for all of the information about houseboats on your website. Your boat listings are excellent, I checked your website many times for the catamaran style houseboats, which we prefer.
Thanx again, Dave

Good morning Terry,

Our first weekend on the boat went great! I really appreciate all your help and coordination efforts throughout this past week in seeing the sale through especially on such short notice.
We really look forward to having 3 or 4 years of pleasure and relaxation on "License to Chill" until we get a case of twofootitis in which case, we'll be back to see you.
Again, thanks for all your help.

Ahoy, Terry,

"Whoopin it Up" has new owners as of today. Deb and I want to thank you for thirteen of the most enjoyable years we could have ever imagined. Almost seems like a dream. We sat down after this past summer and decided that it's time to do something different, like travel, and look for a warmer winter climate (yes I looked at the houseboat in Bradenton.) If it flies or floats, we'll rent it. Conley has some good looking rentals Hope you, Tom, and the girls are all well. We'll keep in touch.

Dear Terry,

We just closed the sale of our third boat through your company and we would like to commend your broker, Lisa Blakeman on her outstanding work. She is an excellent representative of your company. Lisa kept us informed throughout the transactions. She took care of all the details that needed to be addressed and was just a real pleasure to work with. If you ever need a referral letter about Lisa and our experience with her please contact us,

Thank you,

Terry and Jake,

I wanted to write you both a quick note and say thanks for all the work you did in selling my boat. I'm not sure if all boat sales are as involved as mine, but I can honestly say without Jake's help and willingness to do whatever it took to consummate the sale I would have never been able to sell the boat. From working with the buyer, researching boat shipping, arranging for mechanical repairs after the marine survey, to actually helping in cleaning out the boat of my personal items before the buyer picked up the boat....Jake did it all. He went above and beyond my expectations and whoever he represents can be assured they have the very best.

Thanks again and I wish you both all the best,
Calvin

March 2014
Terry,

Once again, thank you so much for all of your help and consistently quick responses to all of my questions. You have definitely been a pleasure to work with and know how to treat a client. If you ever need a very positive reference, you may feel free to use me. I wish you calm winds and following seas,

Dan

Terry,

Thanks again,

Thank you for your reply. I'll check out those links and figure out the direction I'm heading.

I love the USA.. Thank God for free enterprise.

Cheers,
Tom

Hi Lisa,

Just wanted to say thanks from Gary and me on the sale of our boat. All of your help made for a speedy and painless sale. The use of the pontoon was so nice of you and such a big help in getting our belongings off of the boat.

As much as I hated to give her up the time was right and who knows, maybe we will be calling you in a few years for you to help us find another boat.

Since the mid-90's when Terry sold us our first houseboat, through you selling our last boat we have never been disappointed with the service Houseboats Buy Terry gives to your customers.

Thanks again,
Linda & Gary

July 2012
Dear Jake:

I want to thank you for your assistance in purchasing my boat.

 I am sure that there are many people like us who are somewhat apprehensive about the information being provided on a used boat but in our purchase, I felt that you were completely straight forward and honest, and provided the necessary information.

Further, thank you for your help in dealing with the transporter; you went above and beyond, taking your personal time to accommodate him which was especially helpful to us since we were so far away.

You may use me as a reference and in fact I would be happy to talk to other prospective buyers; please have them call me.

Again, thank you for all your help.
Very truly yours,
Richard Kolb

Terry,

We just wanted to commend Houseboats Buy Terry in the sale of our houseboat. We were very impressed with the pictures and the information that Joyce Griffin put on the site. She informed us and gave us the information that we needed to sell. She was a good broker that brought the buyer in and spent a lot of time with him, and when the survey was done, she was right there with us all the way. Thank you again for your service and thank Joyce again for the fine services she provided us.

Sincerely Ed & Janis

Wanted to tell you we met Jake and wow he is a great person! We loved everything about him, we kinda were lost and he came to rescue us ! He showed us the boats we wanted to see and took a personal tone to all of the
showings! If we were to buy a boat from Houseboats Buy Terry we would want him to sell it to us! It is very rare we find a young man with the love of his job.
He sells with truth! Good job in having him.

Hi Terry,

First, I want to compliment you for running the top houseboat brokerage in the industry! We purchased our first boat from Lisa 3 years ago, and sold it with Jake in less than 24 hours!
Anyway, we are anxious to get into a new one and this Horizon at Conley Bottom looks very nice. row

Joe

Terry,

Thank you for your timely reply. I have to say I was very impressed by your honesty on the phone the other day concerning the Burns Craft on Lake Barkley. The last thing I ever expected to hear from a broker was "That is not the right boat for you and I won't sell it to you". I would like to get out the door without spending more than 40k. This will be a starter boat for me. You have all the specifications I am looking for correct otherwise. Nashville area is what I am looking for, but not landlocked on the Percy Priest. I want to be able to cruise the rivers when I have the time. Oddly enough, I received the latest copy of Houseboat Magazine in the mail today.
You have a great write up in there!

Hi Terry,

Just came across your email and wanted to let you know that we are thoroughly enjoying the '85 Landau that we bought through Houseboats by Terry.
Even though it is a 7 hour trip from Akron, OH to Norris, TN we have found the trip to be worth it once we are down on the dock. The Landau is a great home away from home.
Thank you both for all the help in making the purchase a very satisfied one.
Sharon and Chuck

Terry,

We want to thank you for being so nice to us during our houseboat buying experience. Most people would have sold us the boat and left us to our own devices, but you didn't do that and for that we are truly & gratefully appreciative.

Thank You,
Bo & Vickie


March 2009
Terry,

Dee and I want to thank you for your efforts. It was refreshing to find an honest and helpful broker. We certainly will look to you should we purchase a boat in the future. We will also recommend you to our friends. Please feel free to use us as a reference. You certainly are working for your clients and customers.

Thanks, Gene

Terry,

I just wanted to take a moment and tell you how much I and my family appreciated all the help that Jake Pyzik has given us. We met Jake on Saturday at Sulphur Creek with full intentions of closing a deal that day, however much to our dismay it fell through. However Jake has given us tips on boats contacted us when he has something that he thinks might accommodate our family. However we found another boat that was for sale through an individual that would accommodate our family.

I just wanted to say thank you for having a great sales team and someone who is not pushy. We all appreciated that and we enjoyed working with Jake and I have recommended him to several friends that are looking for boats this summer.

You have an excellent web site and all of your information is up to date. Again, thank you both for all of the help from keeping us informed on boats, to referring a boat mover.

Thanks,
Stephanie

Please thank Lisa (Blakeman) for spending the day with us on Saturday. It was
SOOOO cold but she was a great host! After looking at boats in 5 states we
have narrowed our choices to 4 boats, the good news is you have 2 of the
boats we like! Both Stella and I felt your company has been the best to work
with so I want to make an offer on our 2nd favorite boat- the 1998
Lakeview.
Terry thanks again, your company has been great to work with.

Hi Terry,

My husband & I used to houseboat for several years on the Herrington Lake.
I enjoyed looking at your beautiful houseboats, and also went to a link where you can
rent them. I'm totally amazed at how much can be packed into the new "big"
houseboats. WOW!! They are incredible!!!
Just wanted to tell you that I enjoyed your website. I won't be looking to buy---just
curiosity. You have a very nice website!!

Bobbie in Lexington, KY.

Just want you to know how much we have enjoyed working with you. Your
sweet personality and enthusiasm for what you do is what sold this boat.

Good morning!  I currently live in McCook, Nebraska. Although not etched in stone, I'm contemplating moving to the Fort Myers, Florida area and wondered if you might have connections that would enable me to purchase a houseboat in that area. I'm interested in living on the boat year round.

After hours of searching on the web, I thought your site was the best.

Thanks,
John

Terry,

My name is Troy and I have been looking for houseboats on
the web for quite some time. My purpose is so that I have a better knowledge
of "What to look for" and "How much am I going to get for my dollar".
Your website has enormous amounts of products for any dollar amount. I like
your site very much and will use it to help me stay informed, Thank you.
 I have questions about houseboats in general and would like your opinion please. What is the R-factor on the insulation of a houseboat. I know this answer will vary, but there should be some kind of industry standard. The reason I am asking is I want to know if I can live year round on the boat. April-October on the water, October-April off the water. I live in North Dakota and that means REALLY cold, approximately coldest in January and temps.
are around 0-10deg. average. If you could help me out on that, I would be very grateful.

Thank you again,

Troy

Hey Lisa (Blakeman),

I want to thank you all for getting my boat sold. I really appreciate
your professionalism. I'll be back into the "boat business", and if I don't build another one,
I'll certainly seek you out. You have a fine company.

Thanks again,

Hello Jake,

I am in New Zealand and am amazed at the selection and quality of your Houseboats.
I have some questions :

-We are looking for one to live on and do our boating in the Hauraki Gulf out of Auckland. There are many Islands and sheltered bays but moderate seas sometimes have to be crossed.

-What would be the cost to ship say a 40' one to New Zealand ?

I look forward to your comments.
Regards,
Emil and Barbara

September, 2006
Dear Terry,

After talking to Bob some more, we've decided that we really need for a trailer to come with the boat; we actually have an appointment 1 week from tomorrow to go up to Northern AZ to check out a cabin cruiser. If it doesn't work out, we'll be sure to keep your website in mind while we continue on our search for our "dream boat". You have one of the best websites that I've come across and believe me, I've spent MEGA hours searching.

Thanks again,
Cheryl

August, 2006
Dear Terry,

I can't tell you how my wife and I appreciate all that you and Elizabeth have done for us!
You are TRUE!!! professionals!! I will be down this weekend and stop by to see you. I owe you more than the contract fee, you all went way out of the way to sell our boat!
Talk to you soon.

THANKS AGAIN FOR EVERYTHING!

Terry,

I was just sitting here on the back deck of the Cumberland Classic I bought off you last fall, watching the sunset on the lake, and was thinking of the day I decided to buy this boat. So I thought I’d shoot you and email to say thanks. I named her the Margaret Elizabeth after my grandmothers. I have made a few changes too, I put a flat screen TV on the wall and put a fireplace in the space where the TV was, it’s the talk of the dock here. I am planning to add a flybridge sometime soon. Anyways, hope all is well at Lake Cumberland.

Hi Terry,
Just a quick intro and to let you know how much my wife and I love
your web-page. We are constantly scanning it and the boats, dreaming
of the day we can move back south and buy us a "live aboard" houseboat.

We are joining my brother and his family this May at Dale Hollow
(Cedar Hill Resort) for a short 1 week vacation and have already
reserved a 50 footer for the stay. Cant hardly wait!

We have been living in Nebraska since my retirement from Uncle Sam's
Canoe Club (I say that in jest - best damn Navy in the world) but
lately both of us have been missing not only the weather down there,
but also the people, customs and lifestyle. I sometimes call my
brother just to hear the southern accent...is that homesick or what?

Anyway, when we are ready to purchase our houseboat, rest assured you
and your company will be the first to hear from us!

Sincerely,
Paul

March 2006
Terry,

Great selections!  This is the best website I've found for used houseboats.  Do you have an idea what the cost would be to transport a 16 x 70 houseboat to Lake Texhoma, on the Texas/Oklahoma border?
 
Thanks,
 Bruce

March 2006
Terry,

I would like to say thank you to both you and your husband for the information you provided and your time. It is easy to see why your business is successful. I would absolutely recommend your business to anyone looking to purchase a used houseboat. Let me know if I can assist you in any way in the future. I will also be contacting the financing and insurance folks that you introduced me to at the show. Thanks again for your help. Paul.

Once again it has been great working with you, and we will continue to refer anyone we

was a good fit for us. Maybe next time. And we all know that there will
be a next time!!

Take Care,

Hi Terry,

Just a quick note to say it was a pleasure meeting you and to thank you
for the professional and courteous service you provided during the purchase
of my boat. I am truly grateful for the patience you demonstrated.

Thanks again, and I will tell all of my envious friends where they can
go to get a boat of their own.

Terry,

We just wanted to take a moment to say thank you for taking your time to show us various houseboats and spend so much time with us, this past Memorial Day Weekend. We really do appreciate it.
Just to refresh you memory we are the couple from Gatlinburg, TN and we looked at the 2004 84ft boat among others. You were nice enough to arrange for us a pass to look at the Boats over in the campground area on Pier 5.
We are very interested in what you have to offer and will be back to Monticello soon. We have narrowed down some of the issues we discussed and would like for you to keep a look out for us. We have decided that we wish to stay around 57 ft. in lenght and 14 ft or wider beam. Remember we have 2 small dogs so we need steps to the top deck that are Friendly. 3 bedrooms, Twin engines, and nicely appointed inside.
Obviously we still have many questions and look forward to meeting with you again. You helped us in so many ways and again we wish to say "Thanks."
Stan & Linda

Dear Terry,

We wanted to thank you for lending an ear and uttering words of advice throughout the sale of our boat. We are well aware that you are quite busy, but you took time to offer your services to us when we were not buying a boat from you. It was nice to know someone so knowledgeable was available to answer questions and would provide honest answers. The sale of the boat was rocky at times, but it worked out in the end.

We enjoyed looking at boats with you at Conely Bottom. We recently bought a boat at Grove Marina. We will contact you again in a few years when we are looking for another boat.

Thank you, again,
Dominique and Jeff

I’ve got the Spring Fever and I was browsing your website. I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed going through the Photo Albums that you have. The pictures are heart warming on a cold, dreary day.  Hope everything is going well for all. Have a great year and hope to see you.

Terry,

It was a pleasure for Pam and I to meet you at the Houseboat Expo Friday night. As we are total novices in the area of houseboats and the purchasing of one. It was comforting to talk to someone who understands our position. We are very serious about purchasing a houseboat and enjoying a new lifestyle. We are looking forward to spending some time with you looking at the boats you have available.

Again, thanks for your time Friday night. We were beginning to feel a bit overwhelmed.

First, before anything else, I want to make sure and thank you for the

what I think has been a very good decision.

Thanks,

Chris was very complimentary on you and how you do business. I feel that we were very lucky that Laura happened to pick the boat she did so that we have the opportunity to work with the best in the business. Thanks for all your help, and I look forward to seeing you again on Sunday !

Jackie delivered the houseboat yesterday. I had him go ahead and paint the bottom even though it might have held another year or two. Anyway, it looks great, Jackie is a great guy to work with and I would highly recommend him. He said he would come get it and paint it again next time. My wife and I are quite pleased with the boat, my "neighbors" at the lake were quite impressed as well. Hope to meet you in person someday. Thanks for the tee shirts as well. I really have enjoyed reading the scriptures on your web site, I pull it up all most every day, keep it up. Maybe in a few years when I retire we can open up the Norris Lake division of Houseboats Buy Terry!!!!!!!! Thanks again for everything.
God speed, Tom and Geneva

Ahoy,

Thanks for your kind hospitality. Whether we buy through you or not (and I am 'leaning' toward it -- but want to crunch the numbers and the pluses and minuses with Jim) I want you to know that we've always appreciated your knowledge and support in this process. You’re a salesperson, as you should be, but at some level, I think you really do want the customer to end up with the 'right boat' for them. That means a lot.

Hello,

I'm Todd and I'm the guy that called Terry Sat. evening
wondering if she thought I could get a loan on an older boat.
It's a 1971 Lazy Days. Its sounds like a steel considering what they
are selling for.
I have A+ credit. Yet still is difficult finding financing due
to the age. Based on the net and all the houseboat forums I've skimmed, Terry
is the best of the best. I don't know where else to turn w/ that
said.

Thank you for taking the time to help me,
Todd

Hi Terry,

I  would be very interested in the above boat if it is still for sale. I am in the UK but I am prepared to come over to view it. The key question is I want to take it to Jamaica.  Do you know of any way freight/shipping companies etc. that would take it to Negril for me and at what cost. I am looking for a houseboat now, and check your website every day, my only problem is getting it to Jamaica.  Can you assist.

 Thanks,
 Mr I abdool

Terry, thank you for all of the information about houseboats on your website. Your boat listings are excellent, I checked your website many times for the catamaran style houseboats, which we prefer.
Thanx again, Dave

Good morning Terry,

Our first weekend on the boat went great! I really appreciate all your help and coordination efforts throughout this past week in seeing the sale through especially on such short notice.
We really look forward to having 3 or 4 years of pleasure and relaxation on "License to Chill" until we get a case of twofootitis in which case, we'll be back to see you.
Again, thanks for all your help.

Hello Terry,

Great website, My wife and I have been scanning the Internet for the right houseboat for us.
This one looks like the right size with the interior we like.

Thanks, John

Ahoy, Terry,

"Whoopin it Up" has new owners as of today. Deb and I want to thank you for thirteen of the most enjoyable years we could have ever imagined. Almost seems like a dream. We sat down after this past summer and decided that it's time to do something different, like travel, and look for a warmer winter climate (yes I looked at the houseboat in Bradenton.) If it flies or floats, we'll rent it. Conley has some good looking rentals Hope you, Tom, and the girls are all well. We'll keep in touch.

Dear Terry,

We just closed the sale of our third boat through your company and we would like to commend your broker, Lisa Blakeman on her outstanding work. She is an excellent representative of your company. Lisa kept us informed throughout the transactions. She took care of all the details that needed to be addressed and was just a real pleasure to work with. If you ever need a referral letter about Lisa and our experience with her please contact us,

Thank you,

Terry and Jake,

I wanted to write you both a quick note and say thanks for all the work you did in selling my boat. I'm not sure if all boat sales are as involved as mine, but I can honestly say without Jake's help and willingness to do whatever it took to consummate the sale I would have never been able to sell the boat. From working with the buyer, researching boat shipping, arranging for mechanical repairs after the marine survey, to actually helping in cleaning out the boat of my personal items before the buyer picked up the boat....Jake did it all. He went above and beyond my expectations and whoever he represents can be assured they have the very best.

Thanks again and I wish you both all the best,
Calvin

March 2014
Terry,

Once again, thank you so much for all of your help and consistently quick responses to all of my questions. You have definitely been a pleasure to work with and know how to treat a client. If you ever need a very positive reference, you may feel free to use me. I wish you calm winds and following seas,

Dan

Terry,

Dave & I wanted to thank you for selling our houseboat and enabling us to purchase our condo in Florida last month. We have many wonderful memories of Lake Cumberland houseboating and look forward to our next chapter, but could not have done it without you!

Thanks again,

Thank you for your reply. I'll check out those links and figure out the direction I'm heading.
Thank you for taking the time to answer my question. A great job with your website. I read your story. :) 
I love the USA.. Thank God for free enterprise.

Cheers,

Hi Lisa,

Just wanted to say thanks from Gary and me on the sale of our boat. All of your help made for a speedy and painless sale. The use of the pontoon was so nice of you and such a big help in getting our belongings off of the boat.

As much as I hated to give her up the time was right and who knows, maybe we will be calling you in a few years for you to help us find another boat.

Since the mid-90's when Terry sold us our first houseboat, through you selling our last boat we have never been disappointed with the service Houseboats Buy Terry gives to your customers.

Thanks again,
Linda & Gary

July 2012
Dear Jake:

I want to thank you for your assistance in purchasing my boat.

 I am sure that there are many people like us who are somewhat apprehensive about the information being provided on a used boat but in our purchase, I felt that you were completely straight forward and honest, and provided the necessary information.

Further, thank you for your help in dealing with the transporter; you went above and beyond, taking your personal time to accommodate him which was especially helpful to us since we were so far away.

You may use me as a reference and in fact I would be happy to talk to other prospective buyers; please have them call me.

Again, thank you for all your help.
Very truly yours,
Richard Kolb

Terry,

We just wanted to commend Houseboats Buy Terry in the sale of our houseboat. We were very impressed with the pictures and the information that Joyce Griffin put on the site. She informed us and gave us the information that we needed to sell. She was a good broker that brought the buyer in and spent a lot of time with him, and when the survey was done, she was right there with us all the way. Thank you again for your service and thank Joyce again for the fine services she provided us.

Sincerely Ed & Janis

Wanted to tell you we met Jake and wow he is a great person! We loved everything about him, we kinda were lost and he came to rescue us ! He showed us the boats we wanted to see and took a personal tone to all of the
showings! If we were to buy a boat from Houseboats Buy Terry we would want him to sell it to us! It is very rare we find a young man with the love of his job.
He sells with truth! Good job in having him.

Hi Terry,

First, I want to compliment you for running the top houseboat brokerage in the industry! We purchased our first boat from Lisa 3 years ago, and sold it with Jake in less than 24 hours!
Anyway, we are anxious to get into a new one and this Horizon at Conley Bottom looks very nice. row

Terry,

Thank you for your timely reply. I have to say I was very impressed by your honesty on the phone the other day concerning the Burns Craft on Lake Barkley. The last thing I ever expected to hear from a broker was "That is not the right boat for you and I won't sell it to you". I would like to get out the door without spending more than 40k. This will be a starter boat for me. You have all the specifications I am looking for correct otherwise. Nashville area is what I am looking for, but not landlocked on the Percy Priest. I want to be able to cruise the rivers when I have the time. Oddly enough, I received the latest copy of Houseboat Magazine in the mail today.
You have a great write up in there!

Hi Terry,

Just came across your email and wanted to let you know that we are thoroughly enjoying the '85 Landau that we bought through Houseboats by Terry.
Even though it is a 7 hour trip from Akron, OH to Norris, TN we have found the trip to be worth it once we are down on the dock. The Landau is a great home away from home.
Thank you both for all the help in making the purchase a very satisfied one.
Sharon and Chuck

Terry,

We want to thank you for being so nice to us during our houseboat buying experience. Most people would have sold us the boat and left us to our own devices, but you didn't do that and for that we are truly & gratefully appreciative.

Thank You,
Bo & Vickie


March 2009
Terry,

Dee and I want to thank you for your efforts. It was refreshing to find an honest and helpful broker. We certainly will look to you should we purchase a boat in the future. We will also recommend you to our friends. Please feel free to use us as a reference. You certainly are working for your clients and customers.

Thanks, Gene

Terry,

I just wanted to take a moment and tell you how much I and my family appreciated all the help that Jake Pyzik has given us. We met Jake on Saturday at Sulphur Creek with full intentions of closing a deal that day, however much to our dismay it fell through. However Jake has given us tips on boats contacted us when he has something that he thinks might accommodate our family. However we found another boat that was for sale through an individual that would accommodate our family.

I just wanted to say thank you for having a great sales team and someone who is not pushy. We all appreciated that and we enjoyed working with Jake and I have recommended him to several friends that are looking for boats this summer.

You have an excellent web site and all of your information is up to date. Again, thank you both for all of the help from keeping us informed on boats, to referring a boat mover.

Thanks,
Stephanie

Please thank Lisa (Blakeman) for spending the day with us on Saturday. It was
SOOOO cold but she was a great host! After looking at boats in 5 states we
have narrowed our choices to 4 boats, the good news is you have 2 of the
boats we like! Both Stella and I felt your company has been the best to work
with so I want to make an offer on our 2nd favorite boat- the 1998
Lakeview.
Terry thanks again, your company has been great to work with.

Hi Terry,

My husband & I used to houseboat for several years on the Herrington Lake.
I enjoyed looking at your beautiful houseboats, and also went to a link where you can
rent them. I'm totally amazed at how much can be packed into the new "big"
houseboats. WOW!! They are incredible!!!
Just wanted to tell you that I enjoyed your website. I won't be looking to buy---just
curiosity. You have a very nice website!!

Bobbie in Lexington, KY.

Just want you to know how much we have enjoyed working with you. Your
sweet personality and enthusiasm for what you do is what sold this boat.

Good morning!  I currently live in McCook, Nebraska. Although not etched in stone, I'm contemplating moving to the Fort Myers, Florida area and wondered if you might have connections that would enable me to purchase a houseboat in that area. I'm interested in living on the boat year round.

After hours of searching on the web, I thought your site was the best.

Thanks,
John

Terry,

My name is Troy and I have been looking for houseboats on
the web for quite some time. My purpose is so that I have a better knowledge
of "What to look for" and "How much am I going to get for my dollar".
Your website has enormous amounts of products for any dollar amount. I like
your site very much and will use it to help me stay informed, Thank you.
 I have questions about houseboats in general and would like your opinion please. What is the R-factor on the insulation of a houseboat. I know this answer will vary, but there should be some kind of industry standard. The reason I am asking is I want to know if I can live year round on the boat. April-October on the water, October-April off the water. I live in North Dakota and that means REALLY cold, approximately coldest in January and temps.
are around 0-10deg. average. If you could help me out on that, I would be very grateful.

Thank you again,

Troy

Hey Lisa (Blakeman),

I want to thank you all for getting my boat sold. I really appreciate
your professionalism. I'll be back into the "boat business", and if I don't build another one,
I'll certainly seek you out. You have a fine company.

Thanks again,

Hello Jake,

I am in New Zealand and am amazed at the selection and quality of your Houseboats.
I have some questions :

-We are looking for one to live on and do our boating in the Hauraki Gulf out of Auckland. There are many Islands and sheltered bays but moderate seas sometimes have to be crossed.

-What would be the cost to ship say a 40' one to New Zealand ?

I look forward to your comments.
Regards,
Emil and Barbara

September, 2006
Dear Terry,

After talking to Bob some more, we've decided that we really need for a trailer to come with the boat; we actually have an appointment 1 week from tomorrow to go up to Northern AZ to check out a cabin cruiser. If it doesn't work out, we'll be sure to keep your website in mind while we continue on our search for our "dream boat". You have one of the best websites that I've come across and believe me, I've spent MEGA hours searching.

Thanks again,
Cheryl

August, 2006
Dear Terry,

I can't tell you how my wife and I appreciate all that you and Elizabeth have done for us!
You are TRUE!!! professionals!! I will be down this weekend and stop by to see you. I owe you more than the contract fee, you all went way out of the way to sell our boat!
Talk to you soon.

THANKS AGAIN FOR EVERYTHING!

Terry,

I was just sitting here on the back deck of the Cumberland Classic I bought off you last fall, watching the sunset on the lake, and was thinking of the day I decided to buy this boat. So I thought I’d shoot you and email to say thanks. I named her the Margaret Elizabeth after my grandmothers. I have made a few changes too, I put a flat screen TV on the wall and put a fireplace in the space where the TV was, it’s the talk of the dock here. I am planning to add a flybridge sometime soon. Anyways, hope all is well at Lake Cumberland.

Hi Terry,
Just a quick intro and to let you know how much my wife and I love
your web-page. We are constantly scanning it and the boats, dreaming
of the day we can move back south and buy us a "live aboard" houseboat.

We are joining my brother and his family this May at Dale Hollow
(Cedar Hill Resort) for a short 1 week vacation and have already
reserved a 50 footer for the stay. Cant hardly wait!

We have been living in Nebraska since my retirement from Uncle Sam's
Canoe Club (I say that in jest - best damn Navy in the world) but
lately both of us have been missing not only the weather down there,
but also the people, customs and lifestyle. I sometimes call my
brother just to hear the southern accent...is that homesick or what?

Anyway, when we are ready to purchase our houseboat, rest assured you
and your company will be the first to hear from us!

Sincerely,
Paul

March 2006
Terry,

Great selections!  This is the best website I've found for used houseboats.  Do you have an idea what the cost would be to transport a 16 x 70 houseboat to Lake Texhoma, on the Texas/Oklahoma border?
 
Thanks,
 Bruce

March 2006
Terry,

I would like to say thank you to both you and your husband for the information you provided and your time. It is easy to see why your business is successful. I would absolutely recommend your business to anyone looking to purchase a used houseboat. Let me know if I can assist you in any way in the future. I will also be contacting the financing and insurance folks that you introduced me to at the show. Thanks again for your help. Paul.

Once again it has been great working with you, and we will continue to refer anyone we

was a good fit for us. Maybe next time. And we all know that there will
be a next time!!

Take Care,

Hi Terry,

Just a quick note to say it was a pleasure meeting you and to thank you
for the professional and courteous service you provided during the purchase
of my boat. I am truly grateful for the patience you demonstrated.

Thanks again, and I will tell all of my envious friends where they can
go to get a boat of their own.

Terry,

We just wanted to take a moment to say thank you for taking your time to show us various houseboats and spend so much time with us, this past Memorial Day Weekend. We really do appreciate it.
Just to refresh you memory we are the couple from Gatlinburg, TN and we looked at the 2004 84ft boat among others. You were nice enough to arrange for us a pass to look at the Boats over in the campground area on Pier 5.
We are very interested in what you have to offer and will be back to Monticello soon. We have narrowed down some of the issues we discussed and would like for you to keep a look out for us. We have decided that we wish to stay around 57 ft. in lenght and 14 ft or wider beam. Remember we have 2 small dogs so we need steps to the top deck that are Friendly. 3 bedrooms, Twin engines, and nicely appointed inside.
Obviously we still have many questions and look forward to meeting with you again. You helped us in so many ways and again we wish to say "Thanks."
Stan & Linda

Dear Terry,

We wanted to thank you for lending an ear and uttering words of advice throughout the sale of our boat. We are well aware that you are quite busy, but you took time to offer your services to us when we were not buying a boat from you. It was nice to know someone so knowledgeable was available to answer questions and would provide honest answers. The sale of the boat was rocky at times, but it worked out in the end.

We enjoyed looking at boats with you at Conely Bottom. We recently bought a boat at Grove Marina. We will contact you again in a few years when we are looking for another boat.

Thank you, again,
Dominique and Jeff

I’ve got the Spring Fever and I was browsing your website. I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed going through the Photo Albums that you have. The pictures are heart warming on a cold, dreary day.  Hope everything is going well for all. Have a great year and hope to see you.

Terry,

It was a pleasure for Pam and I to meet you at the Houseboat Expo Friday night. As we are total novices in the area of houseboats and the purchasing of one. It was comforting to talk to someone who understands our position. We are very serious about purchasing a houseboat and enjoying a new lifestyle. We are looking forward to spending some time with you looking at the boats you have available.

Again, thanks for your time Friday night. We were beginning to feel a bit overwhelmed.

First, before anything else, I want to make sure and thank you for the
wonderful job you have done for us in securing our new boat. Being a first
time Houseboater, your help has been very important in allowing us to make
what I think has been a very good decision.

Thanks,
Doug

Chris was very complimentary on you and how you do business. I feel that we were very lucky that Laura happened to pick the boat she did so that we have the opportunity to work with the best in the business. Thanks for all your help, and I look forward to seeing you again on Sunday !

Thanks,

Jackie delivered the houseboat yesterday. I had him go ahead and paint the bottom even though it might have held another year or two. Anyway, it looks great, Jackie is a great guy to work with and I would highly recommend him. He said he would come get it and paint it again next time. My wife and I are quite pleased with the boat, my "neighbors" at the lake were quite impressed as well. Hope to meet you in person someday. Thanks for the tee shirts as well. I really have enjoyed reading the scriptures on your web site, I pull it up all most every day, keep it up. Maybe in a few years when I retire we can open up the Norris Lake division of Houseboats Buy Terry!!!!!!!! Thanks again for everything.
God speed, Tom and Geneva

Ahoy,

Thanks for your kind hospitality. Whether we buy through you or not (and I am 'leaning' toward it -- but want to crunch the numbers and the pluses and minuses with Jim) I want you to know that we've always appreciated your knowledge and support in this process. You’re a salesperson, as you should be, but at some level, I think you really do want the customer to end up with the 'right boat' for them. That means a lot.

Hello,

I'm Todd and I'm the guy that called Terry Sat. evening
wondering if she thought I could get a loan on an older boat.
It's a 1971 Lazy Days. Its sounds like a steel considering what they
are selling for.
I have A+ credit. Yet still is difficult finding financing due
to the age. Based on the net and all the houseboat forums I've skimmed, Terry
is the best of the best. I don't know where else to turn w/ that
said.

Thank you for taking the time to help me,
Todd

Hi Terry,

I  would be very interested in the above boat if it is still for sale. I am in the UK but I am prepared to come over to view it. The key question is I want to take it to Jamaica.  Do you know of any way freight/shipping companies etc. that would take it to Negril for me and at what cost. I am looking for a houseboat now, and check your website every day, my only problem is getting it to Jamaica.  Can you assist.

 Thanks,
 Mr I abdool

Terry, thank you for all of the information about houseboats on your website. Your boat listings are excellent, I checked your website many times for the catamaran style houseboats, which we prefer.
Thanx again, Dave

Good morning Terry,

Our first weekend on the boat went great! I really appreciate all your help and coordination efforts throughout this past week in seeing the sale through especially on such short notice.
We really look forward to having 3 or 4 years of pleasure and relaxation on "License to Chill" until we get a case of twofootitis in which case, we'll be back to see you.
Again, thanks for all your help.

Ahoy, Terry,

"Whoopin it Up" has new owners as of today. Deb and I want to thank you for thirteen of the most enjoyable years we could have ever imagined. Almost seems like a dream. We sat down after this past summer and decided that it's time to do something different, like travel, and look for a warmer winter climate (yes I looked at the houseboat in Bradenton.) If it flies or floats, we'll rent it. Conley has some good looking rentals Hope you, Tom, and the girls are all well. We'll keep in touch.

Hello Ceysha

Dear Terry,

We just closed the sale of our third boat through your company and we would like to commend your broker, Lisa Blakeman on her outstanding work. She is an excellent representative of your company. Lisa kept us informed throughout the transactions. She took care of all the details that needed to be addressed and was just a real pleasure to work with. If you ever need a referral letter about Lisa and our experience with her please contact us,

Thank you,
Ray & Linda

Terry and Jake,

I wanted to write you both a quick note and say thanks for all the work you did in selling my boat. I'm not sure if all boat sales are as involved as mine, but I can honestly say without Jake's help and willingness to do whatever it took to consummate the sale I would have never been able to sell the boat. From working with the buyer, researching boat shipping, arranging for mechanical repairs after the marine survey, to actually helping in cleaning out the boat of my personal items before the buyer picked up the boat....Jake did it all. He went above and beyond my expectations and whoever he represents can be assured they have the very best.

Thanks again and I wish you both all the best,
Calvin

March 2014
Terry,

Once again, thank you so much for all of your help and consistently quick responses to all of my questions. You have definitely been a pleasure to work with and know how to treat a client. If you ever need a very positive reference, you may feel free to use me. I wish you calm winds and following seas,

Dan

Terry,

Dave & I wanted to thank you for selling our houseboat and enabling us to purchase our condo in Florida last month. We have many wonderful memories of Lake Cumberland houseboating and look forward to our next chapter, but could not have done it without you!

Thanks again,

Thank you for your reply. I'll check out those links and figure out the direction I'm heading.
Thank you for taking the time to answer my question. A great job with your website. I read your story. :) 
I love the USA.. Thank God for free enterprise.

Cheers,
Tom

March 2013
Hi Lisa,

Just wanted to say thanks from Gary and me on the sale of our boat. All of your help made for a speedy and painless sale. The use of the pontoon was so nice of you and such a big help in getting our belongings off of the boat.

As much as I hated to give her up the time was right and who knows, maybe we will be calling you in a few years for you to help us find another boat.

Since the mid-90's when Terry sold us our first houseboat, through you selling our last boat we have never been disappointed with the service Houseboats Buy Terry gives to your customers.

Thanks again,
Linda & Gary

July 2012
Dear Jake:

I want to thank you for your assistance in purchasing my boat.

 I am sure that there are many people like us who are somewhat apprehensive about the information being provided on a used boat but in our purchase, I felt that you were completely straight forward and honest, and provided the necessary information.

Further, thank you for your help in dealing with the transporter; you went above and beyond, taking your personal time to accommodate him which was especially helpful to us since we were so far away.

You may use me as a reference and in fact I would be happy to talk to other prospective buyers; please have them call me.

Again, thank you for all your help.
Very truly yours,
Richard Kolb

Terry,

We just wanted to commend Houseboats Buy Terry in the sale of our houseboat. We were very impressed with the pictures and the information that Joyce Griffin put on the site. She informed us and gave us the information that we needed to sell. She was a good broker that brought the buyer in and spent a lot of time with him, and when the survey was done, she was right there with us all the way. Thank you again for your service and thank Joyce again for the fine services she provided us.

Sincerely Ed & Janis

Terry.

Wanted to tell you we met Jake and wow he is a great person! We loved everything about him, we kinda were lost and he came to rescue us ! He showed us the boats we wanted to see and took a personal tone to all of the
showings! If we were to buy a boat from Houseboats Buy Terry we would want him to sell it to us! It is very rare we find a young man with the love of his job.
He sells with truth! Good job in having him.

Hi Terry,

First, I want to compliment you for running the top houseboat brokerage in the industry! We purchased our first boat from Lisa 3 years ago, and sold it with Jake in less than 24 hours!
Anyway, we are anxious to get into a new one and this Horizon at Conley Bottom looks very nice. row

Joe

Terry,

Thank you for your timely reply. I have to say I was very impressed by your honesty on the phone the other day concerning the Burns Craft on Lake Barkley. The last thing I ever expected to hear from a broker was "That is not the right boat for you and I won't sell it to you". I would like to get out the door without spending more than 40k. This will be a starter boat for me. You have all the specifications I am looking for correct otherwise. Nashville area is what I am looking for, but not landlocked on the Percy Priest. I want to be able to cruise the rivers when I have the time. Oddly enough, I received the latest copy of Houseboat Magazine in the mail today.
You have a great write up in there!

Hi Terry,

Just came across your email and wanted to let you know that we are thoroughly enjoying the '85 Landau that we bought through Houseboats by Terry.
Even though it is a 7 hour trip from Akron, OH to Norris, TN we have found the trip to be worth it once we are down on the dock. The Landau is a great home away from home.
Thank you both for all the help in making the purchase a very satisfied one.
Sharon and Chuck

May 2009,
Terry,

We want to thank you for being so nice to us during our houseboat buying experience. Most people would have sold us the boat and left us to our own devices, but you didn't do that and for that we are truly & gratefully appreciative.

Thank You,
Bo & Vickie


March 2009
Terry,

Dee and I want to thank you for your efforts. It was refreshing to find an honest and helpful broker. We certainly will look to you should we purchase a boat in the future. We will also recommend you to our friends. Please feel free to use us as a reference. You certainly are working for your clients and customers.

Thanks, Gene

Dear Terry,

Terry,

I just wanted to take a moment and tell you how much I and my family appreciated all the help that Jake Pyzik has given us. We met Jake on Saturday at Sulphur Creek with full intentions of closing a deal that day, however much to our dismay it fell through. However Jake has given us tips on boats contacted us when he has something that he thinks might accommodate our family. However we found another boat that was for sale through an individual that would accommodate our family.

I just wanted to say thank you for having a great sales team and someone who is not pushy. We all appreciated that and we enjoyed working with Jake and I have recommended him to several friends that are looking for boats this summer.

You have an excellent web site and all of your information is up to date. Again, thank you both for all of the help from keeping us informed on boats, to referring a boat mover.

Thanks,
Stephanie

Please thank Lisa (Blakeman) for spending the day with us on Saturday. It was
SOOOO cold but she was a great host! After looking at boats in 5 states we
have narrowed our choices to 4 boats, the good news is you have 2 of the
boats we like! Both Stella and I felt your company has been the best to work
with so I want to make an offer on our 2nd favorite boat- the 1998
Lakeview.
Terry thanks again, your company has been great to work with.

Hi Terry,

My husband & I used to houseboat for several years on the Herrington Lake.
I enjoyed looking at your beautiful houseboats, and also went to a link where you can
rent them. I'm totally amazed at how much can be packed into the new "big"
houseboats. WOW!! They are incredible!!!
Just wanted to tell you that I enjoyed your website. I won't be looking to buy---just
curiosity. You have a very nice website!!

Bobbie in Lexington, KY.

Just want you to know how much we have enjoyed working with you. Your
sweet personality and enthusiasm for what you do is what sold this boat.

Good morning!  I currently live in McCook, Nebraska. Although not etched in stone, I'm contemplating moving to the Fort Myers, Florida area and wondered if you might have connections that would enable me to purchase a houseboat in that area. I'm interested in living on the boat year round.

After hours of searching on the web, I thought your site was the best.

Thanks,
John

Terry,

My name is Troy and I have been looking for houseboats on
the web for quite some time. My purpose is so that I have a better knowledge
of "What to look for" and "How much am I going to get for my dollar".
Your website has enormous amounts of products for any dollar amount. I like
your site very much and will use it to help me stay informed, Thank you.
 I have questions about houseboats in general and would like your opinion please. What is the R-factor on the insulation of a houseboat. I know this answer will vary, but there should be some kind of industry standard. The reason I am asking is I want to know if I can live year round on the boat. April-October on the water, October-April off the water. I live in North Dakota and that means REALLY cold, approximately coldest in January and temps.
are around 0-10deg. average. If you could help me out on that, I would be very grateful.

Thank you again,

Troy

Hey Lisa (Blakeman),

I want to thank you all for getting my boat sold. I really appreciate
your professionalism. I'll be back into the "boat business", and if I don't build another one,
I'll certainly seek you out. You have a fine company.

Thanks again,

Hello Jake,

I am in New Zealand and am amazed at the selection and quality of your Houseboats.
I have some questions :

-We are looking for one to live on and do our boating in the Hauraki Gulf out of Auckland. There are many Islands and sheltered bays but moderate seas sometimes have to be crossed.

-What would be the cost to ship say a 40' one to New Zealand ?

I look forward to your comments.
Regards,
Emil and Barbara

September, 2006
Dear Terry,

After talking to Bob some more, we've decided that we really need for a trailer to come with the boat; we actually have an appointment 1 week from tomorrow to go up to Northern AZ to check out a cabin cruiser. If it doesn't work out, we'll be sure to keep your website in mind while we continue on our search for our "dream boat". You have one of the best websites that I've come across and believe me, I've spent MEGA hours searching.

Thanks again,
Cheryl

August, 2006
Dear Terry,

I can't tell you how my wife and I appreciate all that you and Elizabeth have done for us!
You are TRUE!!! professionals!! I will be down this weekend and stop by to see you. I owe you more than the contract fee, you all went way out of the way to sell our boat!
Talk to you soon.

THANKS AGAIN FOR EVERYTHING!

Terry,

I was just sitting here on the back deck of the Cumberland Classic I bought off you last fall, watching the sunset on the lake, and was thinking of the day I decided to buy this boat. So I thought Iíd shoot you and email to say thanks. I named her the Margaret Elizabeth after my grandmothers. I have made a few changes too, I put a flat screen TV on the wall and put a fireplace in the space where the TV was, itís the talk of the dock here. I am planning to add a flybridge sometime soon. Anyways, hope all is well at Lake Cumberland.

Hi Terry,
Just a quick intro and to let you know how much my wife and I love
your web-page. We are constantly scanning it and the boats, dreaming
of the day we can move back south and buy us a "live aboard" houseboat.

We are joining my brother and his family this May at Dale Hollow
(Cedar Hill Resort) for a short 1 week vacation and have already
reserved a 50 footer for the stay. Cant hardly wait!

We have been living in Nebraska since my retirement from Uncle Sam's
Canoe Club (I say that in jest - best damn Navy in the world) but
lately both of us have been missing not only the weather down there,
but also the people, customs and lifestyle. I sometimes call my
brother just to hear the southern accent...is that homesick or what?

Anyway, when we are ready to purchase our houseboat, rest assured you
and your company will be the first to hear from us!

Sincerely,
Paul

March 2006
Terry,

Great selections!  This is the best website I've found for used houseboats.  Do you have an idea what the cost would be to transport a 16 x 70 houseboat to Lake Texhoma, on the Texas/Oklahoma border?
 
Thanks,
 Bruce

March 2006
Terry,

I would like to say thank you to both you and your husband for the information you provided and your time. It is easy to see why your business is successful. I would absolutely recommend your business to anyone looking to purchase a used houseboat. Let me know if I can assist you in any way in the future. I will also be contacting the financing and insurance folks that you introduced me to at the show. Thanks again for your help. Paul.

Terry,

Once again it has been great working with you, and we will continue to refer anyone we

was a good fit for us. Maybe next time. And we all know that there will
be a next time!!

Take Care,

Hi Terry,

Just a quick note to say it was a pleasure meeting you and to thank you
for the professional and courteous service you provided during the purchase
of my boat. I am truly grateful for the patience you demonstrated.

Thanks again, and I will tell all of my envious friends where they can
go to get a boat of their own.

Terry,

We just wanted to take a moment to say thank you for taking your time to show us various houseboats and spend so much time with us, this past Memorial Day Weekend. We really do appreciate it.
Just to refresh you memory we are the couple from Gatlinburg, TN and we looked at the 2004 84ft boat among others. You were nice enough to arrange for us a pass to look at the Boats over in the campground area on Pier 5.
We are very interested in what you have to offer and will be back to Monticello soon. We have narrowed down some of the issues we discussed and would like for you to keep a look out for us. We have decided that we wish to stay around 57 ft. in lenght and 14 ft or wider beam. Remember we have 2 small dogs so we need steps to the top deck that are Friendly. 3 bedrooms, Twin engines, and nicely appointed inside.
Obviously we still have many questions and look forward to meeting with you again. You helped us in so many ways and again we wish to say "Thanks."
Stan & Linda

Dear Terry,

We wanted to thank you for lending an ear and uttering words of advice throughout the sale of our boat. We are well aware that you are quite busy, but you took time to offer your services to us when we were not buying a boat from you. It was nice to know someone so knowledgeable was available to answer questions and would provide honest answers. The sale of the boat was rocky at times, but it worked out in the end.

We enjoyed looking at boats with you at Conely Bottom. We recently bought a boat at Grove Marina. We will contact you again in a few years when we are looking for another boat.

Thank you, again,
Dominique and Jeff

Iíve got the Spring Fever and I was browsing your website. I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed going through the Photo Albums that you have. The pictures are heart warming on a cold, dreary day.  Hope everything is going well for all. Have a great year and hope to see you.

Terry,

It was a pleasure for Pam and I to meet you at the Houseboat Expo Friday night. As we are total novices in the area of houseboats and the purchasing of one. It was comforting to talk to someone who understands our position. We are very serious about purchasing a houseboat and enjoying a new lifestyle. We are looking forward to spending some time with you looking at the boats you have available.

Again, thanks for your time Friday night. We were beginning to feel a bit overwhelmed.

Terry,

First, before anything else, I want to make sure and thank you for the
wonderful job you have done for us in securing our new boat. Being a first
time Houseboater, your help has been very important in allowing us to make
what I think has been a very good decision.

Thanks,
Doug

Terry,

Chris was very complimentary on you and how you do business. I feel that we were very lucky that Laura happened to pick the boat she did so that we have the opportunity to work with the best in the business. Thanks for all your help, and I look forward to seeing you again on Sunday !

Thanks,

Terry,

Jackie delivered the houseboat yesterday. I had him go ahead and paint the bottom even though it might have held another year or two. Anyway, it looks great, Jackie is a great guy to work with and I would highly recommend him. He said he would come get it and paint it again next time. My wife and I are quite pleased with the boat, my "neighbors" at the lake were quite impressed as well. Hope to meet you in person someday. Thanks for the tee shirts as well. I really have enjoyed reading the scriptures on your web site, I pull it up all most every day, keep it up. Maybe in a few years when I retire we can open up the Norris Lake division of Houseboats Buy Terry!!!!!!!! Thanks again for everything.
God speed, Tom and Geneva

I have A+ credit. Yet still is difficult finding financing due
to the age. Based on the net and all the houseboat forums I've skimmed, Terry
is the best of the best. I don't know where else to turn w/ that
said.

Thank you for taking the time to help me,

Hi Terry,

I  would be very interested in the above boat if it is still for sale. I am in the UK but I am prepared to come over to view it. The key question is I want to take it to Jamaica.  Do you know of any way freight/shipping companies etc. that would take it to Negril for me and at what cost. I am looking for a houseboat now, and check your website every day, my only problem is getting it to Jamaica.  Can you assist.

 Thanks,
 Mr I abdool

Terry, thank you for all of the information about houseboats on your website. Your boat listings are excellent, I checked your website many times for the catamaran style houseboats, which we prefer.
Thanx again, Dave

Good morning Terry,

Our first weekend on the boat went great! I really appreciate all your help and coordination efforts throughout this past week in seeing the sale through especially on such short notice.
We really look forward to having 3 or 4 years of pleasure and relaxation on "License to Chill" until we get a case of twofootitis in which case, we'll be back to see you.
Again, thanks for all your help.

Greg S.
