John, Anthony and Amanda Turco, the highest-producing real estate agents in their regions who have closed more than $1.5 billion in transactions combined, left William Raveis Real Estate for boutique real estate brokerage The Agency.
John and Anthony Turco will operate from Naples, Florida, and Scottsdale, Arizona, while Amanda Turco will work exclusively from Scottsdale.
Anthony Turco’s career as a Realtor in the Valley spans 17 years and began with an apprenticeship under his father, John Turco. In his new role at The Agency Scottsdale, he plans to grow the Turco Group’s business.
He has contributed more than $500 million of The Turco Group’s total out of its total of $1.5 billion. “I’m looking forward to continuing our exceptional marketing through leveraging all available technologies,” he said in a statement.
John Turco, born and raised in New Jersey, began his three-decade-long career in marketing for Saatchi & Saatchi on Madison Avenue, before jumping to real estate. In 1988, he joined Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate after relocating to Florida. There, he contributed to more than $15 million in sales in his first seven months and $33 million in his first business year.
In 2014 he ranked No. 10 in the nationwide network of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices in 2014. In 2016, John joined Christie’s International Real Estate with William Raveis in Naples. He has sold more than $1.5 billion in real estate to date.
He also ranked in the top 100 sales professionals and was a top Realtor at BHHS’ Chairman’s Circle Platinum Award from 2002 to 2015.
Amanda Turco’s professional career spans a decade in high-end homes. Born and raised in Boca Raton, she apprenticed under her father.
Other top real estate agents have also made moves this year. Recently, Greenville-based Blackstream under Christie’s International Real Estate welcomed Nickey Maxey and The Nickey Maxey Team, to the firm. They joined from Sotheby’s International Realty, where they are estimated to have closed more than $65 million in sales volume in 2022. The team will head a new office in Bluffton as a part of Blackstream’s strategy to expand into the South Carolina coastal market.
In October, top real estate agent Tracy McLaughlin left The Agency to join rival brokerage Engel & Volkers’ Marin County, California, outpost. Last year, she closed more than $416 million in deals and ranked 24 among the most productive agents nationwide. McLaughlin joined The Agency in 2019 from Compass.
