In what can be described as an amazing coup for Australian real estate I am proud to announce that Marquette Turner Luxury Homes has been named the Best Luxury Real Estate Agency in the world (Less than 2 years old).

Awarded by The Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate at a ceremony held at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Philadelphia on Monday October 13, our company became the first non-American firm to win the award.

Both Simon Turner and I were there to accept the trophy in front of the best real estate Brokers in the world. It was extremely humbling, exciting and very satisfying to receive the award which makes the hard work which we have all put in very worthwhile. The “Rookie Award” is awarded to the Luxury agency judged as the best in the world which has operated for a period of two years or less.

At a time when vendors are in desperate need of the very best advice it is great to be recognized as the very best at what we do. We have always believed in being realistic, telling our clients the truth about pricing, protecting their privacy and marketing their homes with the latest technology and strategies in mind.

I would personally like to thank the Governing Board of the Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate for recognizing our commitment and achievements. I would also like to thank Simon Turner and Christine Watson for their total dedication in making this award possible and our clients, friends and families for their constant trust and support.
