after working for mace's department stores, in Maspeth and then in middle village, for many decades, I finally met a professional real estate broker worthy of commenting about and complimenting publicly. You deserve the compliment jim turano, and you really know your business when it comes to retail stores. It was a pleasure last year, and I meant to comment sooner, but was too busy to do so. You are the best of what you do, as a real estate broker, in middle village hands down. Thanks for your expertise and your experience which made everything much easier to rent the retail location.
Better late than never.

response to todays compliment. It is still gratifying as 31 years ago when I first started in Real Estate to hear praise or a compliment as above, by Mr.Batyr. As a Local Real Estate Broker, I do care about the customers I do business with.
Whether it is the tenants,Buyers, or Sellers of Properties and I like to treat everyone the same way I would like to be treated. The Difference of service, manners, and the showing of responsibility along with the proper Communication is a key essential to me.
This is why I am complemented here on topix, and all over the Google Web site compared to most other Brokers in Business in our Community of Middle Village.
Sincere special Thanks,
JIM TURANO/BROKER OF *DIVERSE REAL ESTATE*

Thanks for finding my cousin an apartment, and giving her a SUMMER DISCOUNT of $100 dollars off the Commission. Your sales agent,
Adele, was brilliant. She only shows terrific apartments not as I call them,

new townhouse in middle village,ny11379 for $518k near the park sounds great. I just found it on Craigslist, typed 'diverse real estate and it popped up!
a 1 family,3beds.2baths,new roof,new hot water tank, near the park, at the same price as a bungalow? what a deal. what an opportunity while rates are low.
Good luck, & knowing you you won't place a sign on it, and probably won't put it on MLS. I know you like to give your buyers a better chance right away.
What good is it to have 20-25 signs on properties when you can give a 110%
and sell that home quickly.
Besides with a realtor who has that many signs makes buyers think something wrong with the area. Or that they can bid $50-$100k less right?
Your really good, and I know this one will go quick.
your friend vinny

date:01/26/12 Last night I was invited to a dinner at a local Restaurant, as a guest of BNI, a networking organization, comprised of various Business men & women. Selected to attend, since the organization, needed and wanted a Commercial Realtor with experience. The Head of the group was Walter Sanchez of the Queens Ledger. It was an honor to be selected out of the dozens of Realtor Brokers in all of the Queens areas.

update:May 17, 2012 Real Estate News in MIDDLE VILLAGE,NEW YORK!
To show you how the market has turned around this year in 2012, I spoke to a 32 Year Real Estate Broker, Jim Turano, of Diverse Real Estate.
Recently he contracted a new exclusive listing that is priced at $1 million dollars. A Legal 3 family,semi-detached brick home facing Juniper park.
He said, "two comps, one at $940k, and one at $968k were sold in the past 60 days." Therefore setting the price at $989,500.00 was warranted.
Features: 6rms.3beds.+2baths on 3rd.fl.,+6rms.3beds.+2baths+te rrace on 2nd.fl., and on 1st.fl. is a 4 room walk in apartment, with 2 beds. & 1 bath.
lot size 29' x 105', building size 3,265sq.ft., Country style Backyard off the 55' long finished basement. Best of all there are 4 boilers-4 zone heating and the tenants currently pay rent+heat+hot water+electric. The taxes are reasonable, only $6,700.00 yearly. There is no garage but a two car paved driveway next to Home.
Homes like this size and structure were built in 1970, and since then Homes built in the area for the most part are not built like this any more.
APPOINTMENTS: Since advertising this Home he said, at this price level, he received 11 phone calls within 72 hours. The first showings began last evening, Wednesday to buyers and the results are they are going back this Monday with other family members for a second viewing.
JIM TURANO/BROKER said"It takes a special qualification to attain an appointment based on the asking price, however educated buyers know value."
If you have ever seen in the past 5 years any of the new homes built in the area, then look at what is available today on the market, then you will know a clear standout such as this Home.
1)PERFECT LOCATION-STEPS TO PARK
2) PLENTY OF SQUARE FOOTAGE THROUGHOUT THE HOME
3) 8 BEDROOMS, 6 BATHROOMS, 4KITCHENS, PRIVATE YARD, HUGE FINISHED BASEMENT, LOW TAXES, 4 BOILERS-4 ZONE HEATING.
NUMBERS GAME: THERE ARE PLENTY OF CUSTOMERS OUT THERE WHO CAN AFFORD THIS TYPE OF HOME. AND THIS TYPE OF HOME RARELY EVER COMES ON THE MARKET. AND EVERY HOME AS AN AVERAGE NEEDS SOME TYPE OF REMODELING. HOWEVER, WHAT YOU GET DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR, IS ONE OF THE BEST BUILT HOMES, & THE BEST LOCATION IN MIDDLE VILLAGE NORTH.
THROW IN WALK TO THE PARK, WALK TO EXPRESS BUSES TO MANHATTAN, AND YOU ARE IN THE DISTRICT OF ONE OF THE TOP SCHOOLS IN THE COMMUNITY, PS 128.
A UNIQUE RARE FIND, AND CONTRACTED WITH A BROKER WHO LIVES IN THE COMMUNITY, HE DOES BUSINESS IN.
COMMENT: What I like about Jim Turano's marketing strategy for years is,
he doesn't place a sign in front of the Home, unless a Homeowner insists.
He feels it takes away from the neighborhood when too many signs are hanging all over the place. The second strategy this long time resident Broker implements, is he does 'not' place a home on 'MULTIPLE LISTING'.
Signs & MLS cheapens the area in his opinion, and more dollars is attained for the Homeowner, by discretely interviewing, qualifying, and making private appointments to inspect the home.
I like that fact, otherwise it looks like a parade, between MLS & signs.
And the Homeowners prefer just showing to the least amount of buyers but the most qualified buyers at the same time.
Happy to post this on TOPIX, Middle Village,NY11379

One of the Real Estate Brokers in our Community, who will be celebrating his 33rd. year in the Business, has been invited by Sal Candella, of the Chamber of Commerce, to attend:
'THE UNVEILING OF THE VIET NAM MEMORIAL MOVING WALL' AT JUNIPER VALLEY PARK ON JUNE 29TH AT 7P.M.-THE EVENT WILL COMMENCE WITH A CANDLE LIGHT VIGIL, THE LIKES OF NEVER BEFORE SEEN IN THE HISTORY OF MIDDLE VILLAGE. HISTORY IN THE MAKING!
The wall has 60,000 names of those who's lives were lost in the Viet Nam conflict. Everyone in New York, Queens, either knew someone who was in Viet Nam, or had a relative that went to Viet Nam.
During 1968 there was a major draft, and many from Middle Village area went into the Army, and eventually went off to Viet Nam. One of the residents back then was JIM TURANO. He was one of the fortunate ones to be able to come back alive.
So be a part of History, be a part of MIDDLE VILLAGE History, bring your children to experience the most unbelievable event ever put together by our Local Organizations, by Volunteers, with the support of the N.Y.P.D., the local Fire Department, Sanitation, our Politicians, Veterans Organizations from Middle Village, and all surrounding areas.
I salute all!
