History, Hospitality and Horses

By Natalie Friedmann

“History, hospitality and horses describes Aiken, South Carolina so perfectly,” says Melissa Major, Broker in Charge at Carolina Real Estate Company. 

Rich in history, Aiken was once a “winter colony” — a retreat for the wealthy when they needed to escape bitter cold winters. It is no surprise that with the area’s perfect climate, pine scented breezes and an abundance of spring water the town once served as a health resort. Wealthy horse enthusiasts soon discovered this quaint town, and after bringing their horses to Aiken for pleasure and training, they quickly fell in love and established luxurious cottage homes and stables - most of which are still standing today. 

“Aiken is one of the country’s most important equestrian centers with facilities for trail riding, fox hunting, hunter-jumper events, race tracks, steeplechasing and polo,” Courtney Conger, Realtor® and owner of Carolina Real Estate Company. The temperate climate allows for year-round training of horses of all disciplines. The largest urban forest in the country, The Hitchcock Woods, is at the heart of Aiken and amid the 2,200 acres are nearly 70 miles of trails that are graced by equestrians, hikers, joggers and even dog walkers. 

At the entrance of The Hitchcock Woods on Laurens Street, SW is a grand Winter Colony residence dating back to 1937. The stately, 7000-square-foot brick home is a true beauty, reminiscent of a European country estate. The home has polished oak floors, high ceilings and many period details throughout. The grounds of the home are breathtaking. "The charming flagstone-floored porch off the living room overlooks a sparkling gunite pool and over 4.5 acres of spectacular lawns shaded by ancient live oaks and pines interspersed with specimen trees imported from Europe and Asia,” says Conger. This incredible historic Aiken estate is offered exclusively by the Carolina Company at $1,799,000 and may be seen by appointment only with the listing agent.

In addition to being a desirable equestrian destination and home to stunning and luxurious, historical estates, Aiken also offers residents the chance to indulge in world class golf and tennis as well as excellent shopping and dining and a variety of cultural activities.

Gulf Coast International Properties: Service. Integrity. Luxury Experience

By Stephanie Cavanaugh

With it's low-key lifestyle, Naples is a more casually sophisticated alternative to Florida hot spots like Palm Beach. "Here, millionaires wear flip flops -- and drive the Ferrari to buy groceries," says realtor Tim Savage.

Tim Savage and Mike McCumber co-own Gulf Coast International Properties, a boutique luxury real estate firm specializing in waterfront and beachfront property in this sublime Gulf town.

The partners offer cutting edge marketing and services, with a twist. "We're more like advisors than selling agents -- a concierge service," McCumber explains. It works. The company continually sets records across luxury markets in southwest Florida.

Tim Savage and Mike McCumber co-own Gulf Coast International Properties, a boutique luxury real estate firm specializing in waterfront and beachfront property in this sublime Gulf town.

The partners offer cutting edge marketing and services, with a twist. "We're more like advisors than selling agents -- a concierge service," McCumber explains. It works. The company continually sets records across luxury markets in southwest Florida.

Unlike traditional firms that tend to nurture solo stars, Gulf Coast's agents work as a team, bringing agents, buyers, and listings together. "We do as many deals in the conference room as we do through the MLS," says McCumber.

They're marketing methods are also unusual, presenting properties where "like-minded buyers are already looking at other luxury items, like boats and jets. We present properties in areas where traditionally a buyer wouldn't be exposed to luxury real estate," says Savage.

And on-line marketing has become essential. "Digital space offers unlimited potential for both buyer and seller," Savage adds. "Getting us in front of a couple sitting in a cafe in Paris, looking at a smart phone...that is the future of effective luxury real estate marketing."

A superb spot to park your Ferrari is within the exclusive community of Port Royal, where residents enjoy the Port Royal Club with its state-of-the-art fitness center, Hydro-grid tennis courts, huge beach-side pool and clubhouse. Waterfront and beach front properties include some of the most luxurious homes in the United States.

For example, inside meets outside in blissful harmony at 1770 Galleon Drive, where a magnificently designed home opens to a sensational patio playground -- all overlooking gorgeous Galleon Cove.

Now that's luxury living.

Dana & Jeff Bloom, Top Agents, RE/MAX Excalibur

by Lauryn Howell

Sometimes an interest in a particular trade or craft begins at a young age and develops into a lifelong passion or career. Second generation real estate agents Dana and Jeff Bloom are some of the lucky few, having developed a love for their profession from the start.

Arizona natives Dana and Jeff made their mark on the luxury home market in Scottsdale early on and have evolved into a dynamic real estate team with more than 30 years’ experience between them.

Members of 3 private clubs, the Bloom family truly lives the country club lifestyle, which allows them to offer a tremendous amount of insight into the buying and selling of specialty, luxury homes and golf course properties combined with their way of life and enjoyment. More specifically, they do a great deal of business in the Desert Highlands, Silverleaf, Desert Mountain and Pine Canyon communities, to name a few.

However, it’s not their insight alone that makes the Blooms one of the top real estate teams, but rather the flawless combination of each of their own unique strengths. Dana’s interior design and remodeling skills coupled with Jeff’s strong background in investment and tenacious negotiating expertise allows them to create a full-service turnkey approach, ensuring that each client receives only the highest standard of service from start to finish.

But for the Blooms, the relationship with their clients doesn’t end there. They handle everything, from repairs to remodeling and furnishing of their clients homes.“We continue our relationship with our client’s long term, ensuring that the owning experience is easy and convenient,” says Dana Bloom.

This dedication and unwavering commitment to service has earned Dana more than a decade of awards and accolades as one of Scottsdale’s top agents. But Dana will be the first to tell you that the accomplishment she is most proud of is the continuously growing number of referrals from clients and friends, saying that, “Our clients become part of our family, and this is one of the many reasons why we truly love what we do.”

Carey & Giampa Realtors, New Hampshire

by Lauryn Howell 

Historic Route 1 winds its way down the eastern seaboard, passing through some of America’s most historically rich cities and towns along the way. As it meanders through New Hampshire, Route 1 touches seven of the Northeast’s most sought after destinations: Seabrook, Hampton Falls, Hampton, North Hampton, Rye, New Castle and Portsmouth.

Since 1991, Carey & Giampa Realtors have been committed to serving this area, providing their clients with the highest level of personalized and detailed service. They have four convenient offices and a well-qualified team of more than 50 realtors, including the first and second place top selling agents in the county.

Aside from its rich history and coveted coastal charm, New Hampshire is also an income-tax-free state, making it extremely appealing to high income families.

While these New Hampshire coastal towns represent the core of their listings, Carey & Giampa also specializes in properties from northern Massachusetts to southern Maine.

Because Carey & Giampa is an independent group not associated with a large, national agency, they are always able to put their clients first. They provide an incredible amount of customization and flexibility, even tailoring their marketing efforts to each specific property. Yet another benefit of their independent status is their unique ability to provide information insights and professional advice that larger companies would lack on all aspects of their Maine, New Hampshire and Massachusetts listings.

Their degree of personalization sets them apart from larger agencies, but it’s their absolute dedication to exceeding the expectations of each and every customer that make Carey & Giampa one of the best in the industry. Whether you’re drawn to the bustling downtown of Newburyport, Maine, or attracted to the coastal serenity of New Castle Island, New Hampsire, Carey & Giampa knows your ideal property is out there, and they’re committed to helping you find it.

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.
