oh I know Jim Turano, and if he recruited this woman Silvia Suarez, he knew deep down inside that she had what it takes for sure. He has a way to make peoples lives better. Even if it is just his inspiration, his hope, his kindness or in Business, he is one individual your happy to see every time. Very Talented and sincere. But anyway, in this economy, and with so much competition in Business, it is refreshing to see that a women receives the recognition of being Business Women of the year. Good look to you and future milestones of success. The Best to Silvia Suarez!  (Sep 12, 2012 | post #2)

critics: To Dog Lover- If someone warrants such postings, news, and achievements in the Community, there always is that one person who must sling some Mud. Throwing the stones at someone who has achieved such great Community results in the past 25 years, only shows that the ridiculous posts of criticism is from someone who hasn't made a difference at all in the Community. Jealousy, or plain ignorance is sad. So as a reminder lets review and see how anyone can knock such a person. JIM TURANO-RESIDENT OF MIDDLE VILLAGE SINCE 1965 Served in the United States Army 1966-1968 *Viet Nam Veteran Numerous Medals including New York State Merit award in 2008 for Viet Nam services. President of Middle Village Kiwannis Business Organization (twice) President of Middle Village, Glendale, Ridgewood Lions Club-Fundraiser and sent 12 children with MD to Lions Club Camp upstate-was on MD *Jerry Lewis *show, and won the first ever *International Award in Middle Village Lions Club history(MELVIN JONES) for his contributions. Past Vice Commander of LUKE J. LANG VETERANS POST-Maspeth,NY Marched in 12 parades on Memorial day on Grand Avenue Completing his 33rd. Year in the Real Estate Business, which he has waived the fees on many people who were in need, looking for an apartment. This man had delivered groceries to a Senior Citizen for 2 years until she recently passed away(Lorraine Walgenwit). Ergo, as the Public Advocate yes I do speak quite a bit about Jim Turano, but he warrants the recognition and why comments from individuals must exist that are negative, I do not know why. Volumes about achievements makes him look so Big or as you say a Superman, however if there were more Jim Turano's in this World as opposed to someone named Dog Lover, it would be a better place. Look in the Mirror Dog Lover. Can you match 5% of what this individual has done in his life and our Community? Have a nice day! When he stands before an expected crowd of over 5,000, on June 29, at 7P.M. for the Unveiling of the Viet Nam Memorial Moving Wall, why don't you tell him to his face that you do not like him, and you don't like all the Great accomplishments I post about him. ****************** *****************  (Jun 20, 2012 | post #9)

area;MIDDLE VILLAGE,NEW YORK 11379 How many brokers do you know that have appraised over 3,000 homes to date? How many Brokers or Agents that do business in Middle Village, also reside in Middle Village? How many agents in Middle Village who have decades of experience and are still nothing more than sales agents in the community? How many FACELESS Brokers do we have in the Community and never participate in Community organizations to give back to the Community they do business in? How many Brokers if GOOGLED by................ .. name/broker would have the most endorsements & recommendations not only in Middle Village,NY but in all of Queens,New York? Special Note: Middle Village is a strong Community, and one where when the children grow up they to would like to reside in the Community near their families & friends. It is because of this special love of our Community that homes are always selling and new generations are moving in. That is why we do not need signs on Properties for sale and lastly we do not need the services of Multiple Listing Service. MLS is gooD for Long Island where the Taxes Make it difficult to sell! In a small Community like Middle Village or surrounding areas there is no need for MLS. If a Broker and his agents can not sell a home in the area they do business in, they are worthless. Opinion: Franchises are mere tools to rake in the money promoting an idea that bigger is better. And it is those Brokers who become Franchises that do not live in the area. Do they really care? Yes about MONEY! SIGNS ON PROPERTIES: Ask the sales agents of a company's why they have dozens of signs all over the place, you will hear we get all the listings, but my friends those agents know it is a form of advertisement for the broker, and two-most are overpriced and can't sell, & it takes away from the area. ////////////////// / RECOMMENDATION: IF YOU ARE THINKING OF SELLING, HIRE THE BEST EXPERIENCED BROKER, THE MOST ENDORSED BROKER,THE MOST RECOMMENDED BROKER, AND ONE WHO RESIDES IN THE COMMUNITY WHO HAS GIVEN BACK TO THE COMMUNITY AS WELL. ONE WHO HAS EARNED HIS REPUTATION AS A HANDS ON BROKER. ONE WHO HAS WRITTEN THE MOST INFORMATIVE REAL ESTATE ARTICLES ON TRULIA, TOPIX, VILLAGE VOICE, GLENDALE REGISTER, LEADING OBSERVER, GREENPOINT STAR, QUEENS EXAMINER, ETC.. REMEMBER IF YOU NEED SURGERY YOU NEED THE BEST TO PERFORM IT. INDIVIDUALS MAKES THE DIFFERENCE NOT A FRANCHISE NAME. PERSONAL SERVICE, OLD FASHIONED HARD WORK, MAKES A RESIDENT BROKER WORK 10X'S HARDER TO EARN A LIVING AGAINST HIS COMPETITION. It is in my opinion, that the perfect Experienced well qualified Broker in our Community warrants your consideration. His name is JIM TURANO/BROKER..... ..............GOOG LE IT/ SEE & READ IT YOURSELF! DIVERSE REAL ESTATE  (Jun 19, 2012 | post #12)
