Cassique Clubhouse Village Custom Cottages to be Introduced April 30

On the heels of a 2-page write-up in the Spring 2015 issue of Private Clubs magazine and a party at the base of the footbridge following last month’s Tour of Homes, the highly anticipated debut of Cassique Clubhouse Village will formally take place on Thursday, April 30, with the release of 5 custom cottages. 

“Members and guests playing golf or dining at the Cassique Clubhouse have seen the new bridge and walked over to the site. We’ve also had a lot of traffic to the neighborhood’s website,” states Chris Drury, President of Kiawah Island Real Estate.  “That has led to a number of great conversations with our Sales Executives, and some very serious interest in Clubhouse Village.”

Cassique Clubhouse Village is designed to unite neighbors through shared interests, shared views of stunning Lowcountry vistas, and shared strolls across a private bridge that connects directly to a wealth of top-tier amenities: Tom Watson’s Cassique Course, Tom Colicchio-inspired dining, and - a bit further down the lane - the state-of-the-art Sports Pavilion with its wellness offerings, saltwater pool, and tennis complex. As the hub for The Kiawah Island Club’s GoKiawah initiative, Cassique brings Members together to celebrate events and activities. Adults, children, and families enjoy kayak tours, Member Mingles, Kids’ Adventure Camps, cocktail cruises, and more. Additionally, Cassique is the closest Kiawah neighborhood to Freshfields Village and historic Charleston.

All-new construction with generous outdoor living spaces marry Lowcountry ease with Cassique’s classic architectural style to create the cottages at Clubhouse Village. Five distinct cottage floorplans ranging in size from 2,600 to 3,600 square feet are uniquely positioned on 23 homesites to showcase exquisite marsh or lagoon views. An esteemed selection of architects along with the Kiawah Partners’ development team has streamlined the construction process for homes at Clubhouse Village. Custom cottages can be ready in just 12 months due to ARB pre-approved architectural design.

Starting at $1.7 million, Cassique Clubhouse Village is offered exclusively through Kiawah Island Real Estate. For details on this April 30 cottage release, please contact your KIRE Sales Executive at 843-768-3400, stop by one of KIRE’s four sales offices, or visit

Press Release: John A. Turco, Sales Professional for Berkshire Hathaway Homeservices Florida Realty, Nationally Recognized as One of Top Ten Realtors Nationwide

(Las Vegas, NV) --- John A. Turco recently received his crowning achievement, having been named one of the top ten sales professionals in the entire Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices’ network for 2014 at a prestigious ceremony in Las Vegas in March. The rankings placed Turco in the Top 10 out of over 35,000 network sales professionals in 1,100 offices throughout 47 states, making him one of the most exclusive national REALTORS® within the company and in the network. In addition to this notable honor, Turco again was named Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Realty’s number One Sales Professional, Statewide, for the highest Gross Commission Income (GCI) for the third straight year (2012-2014). Now part of the exclusive "Top Ten Club", his impressive record is a testament to the business ethic that he and his son, Anthony, have brought to a business that has totaled an estimated $250 million in real estate sales for 2007-2014.  Such success can surely be attributed to his dedication, his determination, his awareness to his client’s needs, and a custom marketing strategy derived from his earlier years on Madison Avenue.

There is little surprise that the last eight years have seen such success, given Turco’s impressive total sales since 1992 - currently well-over $1 billion. With his approach to the business and forthcoming expansion, there’s every indication to think that his status within the company will only continue to reach new heights. “I was honored to be at the convention in March and to learn of my national rankings and entry into the Top Ten Club. After twenty years and over $1 billion in total sales, my goals are realistic: relying on innovation in a rapidly changing business, which results in new opportunities to explore. Adjustments are always necessary to ensure that success continues well into the future. I do not accept anything short of professionalism; it's impossible to begin your career in Manhattan and forget where you started!” commented Turco.

Much of Turco’s latest accomplishments are due, in part, to the support and talent of his son, Anthony, who joined his father nearly ten years ago. “I’m incredibly lucky to have my son Anthony work by my side day in and day out. His performance in this market is incredible, and his willingness to create and apply up-to-date standards based on what I’ve taught him shows me that he knows what it takes to stay ahead. I’m very pleased with the relationships he maintains with our clients. He's the face of the future of our brand and the real estate business,” Turco continued.

John Turco joined Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Realty (formerly Prudential Florida Realty) in 2000 and has been among the company’s Top 15 Sales Professionals each year. “John is simply amazing - and we are fortunate to have one of the top ten agents for the brand proudly in our state. I was pleased to be with him at the convention in Las Vegas this year to see his contributions acknowledged. His commitment and devotion to the business certainly sets him apart, and I am honored to have John as an integral part of the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Realty Family of Services. I congratulate him, again, on his continued contributions to our Company and the industry,” commented Rei L. Mesa, President and Chief Executive Officer.

Turco believes that the real estate market has fully recovered, and expects to see even more improvement over the next few years. Seeing the upward trends of both South Florida and Southwest Florida, Turco predicts a thriving market for all types of clients, and an expansion of services. “Having a success rate of over 98%, I have excellent knowledge of Florida real estate and its clientele: over $1 billion in total sales since 1992 speaks for itself. Certainly, I am forever grateful for the support of my family, as well as to my loyal client following who remain my motivation for working harder each and every year. I’m looking forward to bigger and better things for all of us this coming year, and am confident in the advantage of calling Florida home,” remarked Turco.

John A. Turco, 239.210.8888,,

Equestrian & Ranch Living: Waterloo, QC Stables

By Ely Grinfield

Way up in Waterloo is where one can find a fantasy home fit for the horse enthusiast wanting both seclusion and five-star amenities to meet any equestrian needs. The newly developed residence looks like something out of a postcard, with a modern-style home built on a cliff overlooking mountainous area and wide open waters, perfect for raising sport horses while still being in the heart of Quebec, Canada’s premiere horse region.

“The draw of the property is easy access because it’s right off the highway,” says realtor Alexandre Fortin, real estate broker at Via Capitale Missisquoi, “where the facility remains solely professional and when you come off exit 88 of Highway 10, you come into the most prestigious and professional barn.”

The estate on 2 Ch. de l’Horizon is as lavish as it is self-sufficient, with a dreamy, 6,317-square-foot brick home surrounded by 70 acres of usable grazing land. Inside the house you’ll find 5 bedrooms, all with rich wood floors and furnishings. The owner has uninhibited views of Waterloo lake and general Eastern Township woodland scenery. The weather is crisp and mild, and for the chillier winter months, the property includes full-form 36-stall stables and a specially insulated and heated arena, making the location perfect for year-round access. Those who are interested in further development can purchase up to 250 additional acres of land.

Located 40 minutes from Montreal and just 15 minutes from Bromont, the host town of the 2018 World Equestrian Games and the Bromont Olympic Equestrian Park, this estate has a prime location for those seriously involved in the profession of horse sport. Other amenities include a guest house, full garage, washer room and lockers, a hayloft, sugar house, trails, paddocks and all other necessities for the well being of horses.

“The ideal homeowner here is someone private who has their head in competition horses,” mentions Fortin. “They will need a place to train and also a place to show.” The region itself hosts a bustling community of homeowners with farms and stables specializing in equestrian showcasing.

Above all, the home and stables can win anyone over with their sheer presentation and adaptability. With full year-round insulation, close proximity to large equestrian communities and scenery that can steal one’s breath, there’s no reason not to make the trek up north to Waterloo, QC Stables.

Equestrian & Ranch Living: Avalon Ranch, Calabasas, California

By Caitlin Duffy

Whoever declared that it isn’t possible to have your cake and eat it too has never seen Calabasas, California, and they definitely haven’t seen Avalon Ranch.

A quiet suburban area just five miles from Malibu and 20 from Los Angeles, Calabasas is the ideal location for those who seek the vigor of a Southern California lifestyle with the relaxation of pastoral acreage and the privacy that affords. Avalon Ranch can provide you with precisely that, as well as countless other coveted amenities.

If your interest has been piqued, there’s nowhere better to turn for more information than Dana Olmes and Jeff Biebuyck of Ewing & Associates Sotheby’s International Realty. With a combined 45 years of experience, Dana and Jeff have represented thousands of million dollar listings in the greater Los Angeles area, with more than $80 million in sales during 2014 alone.

Reach out to them, and they’ll be sure to tell you all about this stunning custom home on 90 acres, built and designed for Oscar-winning producer Jim Wilson. At 7,500 square feet, the main home offers four bedrooms and five bathrooms, while the guest home offers one bedroom, 1 bathroom and a loft. A guest suite above the detached 3 car garage has two more bedrooms and a private bath.

Listed at $14.9 million, this working equestrian estate includes a 16-stall center-aisle barn with tack room, jumping arena, a day barn with turn out, grass pastures and miles of private trails, as well as an additional 100 acres available for purchase.

For a day where the horses may need some rest, there are countless other options for spending your time. Whether practicing your serve on the clay tennis court, counting laps in the swimming pool or lounging in the pool pavilion, you’ll be sure to enjoy a healthy dose of California sunshine year round.

If something in town is more to your liking, take a stroll to downtown Calabasas, a town of around 24,000 known for its award winning schools. Or if a night life is what you crave, call an Uber and spend the night in downtown Los Angeles, Santa Monica or Malibu. It’s all up to you when you call Avalon Ranch home.
