Get to know Tom Turner
•My background: I was born in Lakewood New York in 1961 into a real estate family and grew up listening to my mother and father talk about and work on real estate transactions. I graduated from Southwestern High School and attended Jamestown Community College. I got my real estate license at the age of 18, worked for my mother at Rolling Hills Realty for 4 years prior to founding Turner Brokers, which has now been in business for 26 years. We have grown from a 2 agent company to a two office company with over 40 sales professionals continually leading Chautauqua County Board of Realtors in Sales and Service. Due to this growth, in 2005 we affiliated with Century 21 Real Estate, the worlds largest real estate organization with over 8500 offices in over 64 Countries. The Century 21 organization provides our organization with the best operating systems, training and tools to serve our clients at a level unobtainable by others.
•My credentials and education/training: I am a licensed real estate broker in both New York and Pennsylvania and have completed my New York State training for certification as a licensed New York State general appraiser. Additionally I have taken many courses in areas such as new home construction, commercial real estate, corporate relocation and also obtained many hours of training in areas such as radon, lead, asbestos and the gamut of environmental issues that face realtors today.
•My awards: Although the Chautauqua County Board of Realtors does not recognized broker/owners for their sales achievements, my most recent years of production have been in excess of 15 million dollars annually personally, which would put me as the number 1 selling agent in Chautauqua County. Also I have been recognized by the Century 21 System as achieving Double Centurion Status which is the second highest award in the Century 21 System worldwide with the majority of producers in this category working in markets where the average sale price exceeds $400,000.00. I am a past Director, Vice President and President of the Chautauqua County Board of Realtors.
