Willis Allen Real Estate’s Terry Holladay Inducted into San Diego Tennis Hall of Fame

Willis Allen Real Estate recently announced the induction of its own Terry Holladay into the San Diego Tennis Hall of Fame by the San Diego District Tennis Association. Fans can enjoy memorabilia of all the 2012 Hall of Fame inductees at the Balboa Tennis Club Clubhouse, located at 2221 Morley Field Dr.

Holladay is recognized for her world-class career and enduring contribution to the tennis legacy in San Diego. As a professional tennis player touring for 13 years, Holladay competed in all four grand slam tournaments and reached a world top 10 singles ranking in 1976.

In addition to prowess on the court, Holladay boasts 25 years of experience in luxury real estate sales. She and her daughter Tasha serve up client satisfaction for their team Homes by the Holladays at Willis Allen’s Rancho Santa Fe branch.

Branch Manager Gary Wheeler praises Holladay without fault saying, “It takes a tremendous amount of dedication to become a professional tennis player. Terry applies that same perseverance and ‘won’t quit’ attitude to her real estate clients at Willis Allen. We are so proud of her accomplishments – on the tennis court, in local real estate, and in the charitable work she does with so much passion.”

That charitable organization is The Dina Humanitarian Foundation, which Holladay founded with her late husband, Dr. Phil A. Higginbottom. Proceeds from her tennis philanthropy and real estate sales directly benefit the foundation, providing medical aid, education and basic supplies to the needy population of Fiji. The foundation also sends resident doctors from Scripps Green Hospital to the remote islands each year to gain hands-on experience in infectious diseases.

In the Fijian language, “Dina” means trust and integrity, according to Holladay. “It is this human quality that is the cornerstone of our work and the value that drives our foundation,” she explains. “I am so proud of the work Dina does to bring items of great importance to the natives.”
