Terrie Suit

Chief Executive Officer

Virginia REALTORS®

Terrie L. Suit was appointed as chief executive officer of the Virginia REALTORS® on September 23, 2013. Terrie’s real estate background began in 1985 as a REALTOR® and later transitioned into a twenty-year mortgage lending career.

In 1996, Terrie received a gubernatorial appointment to the Virginia Real Estate Board. Several years later she was elected to the Virginia House of Delegates where she served the 81st District for nearly a decade. During her time as a delegate, Terrie served as chair to the General Laws Committee, the Housing Sub-Committee and the Virginia Housing Commission. As a delegate, Terrie was recognized by legislative peers and constituents as an expert on housing policy to include real estate licensure, common interest communities, landlord tenant issues, real estate finance, foreclosure, and building and fair housing issues.

In April of 2011, Terrie was appointed by Virginia’s Governor to be Virginia’s first Secretary of Veterans Affairs and Homeland Security. As an Army daughter and a Navy wife, Terrie worked diligently to fulfill the Governor’s goal of making Virginia “the most veteran-friendly state in the nation.” In 2022, the governor appointed her to the University of Mary Washington Board of Visitors.

As Virginia REALTORS®’s chief executive officer, Terrie has also served at the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) level on multiple committees and workgroups.

Terrie is a graduate of both Tidewater Community College and Old Dominion University with a Bachelor of Science in Political Science. She completed her Masters in Business Administration at the University of Mary Washington and also holds the Certified Association Executive (CAE) certification. Terrie and her husband, Tom, reside in Spotsylvania County.
