Top Producing Manager Terry Karges takes over the First Team Christie’s Newport Beach Office to remain #1 in OC Luxury Real Estate.
Irvine, California, Jan. 03, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Amidst the accomplishments First Team Real Estate faced in 2018, a plan for future growth was always in the works. Terry Karges—who is now celebrating 15 years with the company—proudly stepped into a new role that would catapult the company into further success.
Now serving as Regional Manager to the First Team offices at Anaheim Hills, Tustin, and Newport Beach, Terry has taken on the responsibility of managing agent productivity, recruiting, and retention while continuing the positive and upbeat culture he was known for instilling in the company as an agent and as the manager of Anaheim Hills. During Karges tenure, he has grown that office from 84 agents to over 140.
While Terry is known for creating a family-style atmosphere that always contains elements of fun, he is also appreciated for his hard work and company-wide recognition as an experienced real estate professional, even winning Manager of the Year in 2017. “The agent experience is everything to me,” said Karges. “My team and I work hard to build a culture where our agents feel safe and free to discover their full potential. My goal is to build an office that every agent can be proud of.
His additional presence in the luxury market will be instrumental in reaching agents all across Southern California. Ranked as Orange County’s #1 Luxury Brokerage*, First Team is in a position to reach agents who are serious about growing their business in the luxury marketplace. Terry believes in helping agents tap into First Team’s luxury benefits: “With Christie’s International, we are able to bring the wealthiest clients from all around the world together,” stated Terry. “My goal is to help agents leverage and understand that advantage, bringing them to all of our luxury affiliates, including Luxury Portfolio®, Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate™, and even our relationship with the NOBLEMAN magazine.”
The new change in Terry’s role at First Team will bring an ideal amalgamation of personal connections, positivity, and productivity. Karges will be supported by Greg Herder, the Newport Beach Resident Regional Manager, who has been focused on increasing agent productivity over the last year. The company itself shows a wealth of promise for the 2019 year. As Southern California’s #1 Brokerage, First Team outshines the competition with a managing staff that stands unrivaled in the field. Terry Karges will undoubtedly serve as a vital influencer in the success of its Anaheim Hills, Tustin, and Newport Beach offices. “At the end of the day,” related Terry, “it’s all about people.”
