Our Story

Our Story

Turpin Real Estate, north-central New Jersey’s premiere independent real estate firm, has been representing fine properties for sale in the cities, villages and countryside west of Manhattan since 1960, currently with 100+ agents and five offices located throughout the region.

We take great pride in delivering the highest level of service to each client, regardless of price—first-time buyers and estate-property owners, alike.

Now in our third generation of family ownership, the brokerage is committed to transacting business with integrity and professionalism. Our workplace culture values collegiality and collaboration in the workplace, and our agents do too; they average more than eleven years at Turpin, as compared to the industry median of seven years. This translates into an unparalleled depth and breadth of local market experience, which we put to work daily for our clients.

In a field filled with franchised operations, Turpin’s fiercely-guarded independence affords us the flexibility to custom-tailor each client experience. In this way, we approach the market from the strongest possible position on behalf of our clients, who benefit from the personalized level of attention that is our hallmark.

We invite you to call, email or stop by one of our offices today and see what a difference an agency can make.

Management Team

Turpin Management Team

A visit to any of our five offices will surely convince you what a difference an agency can make. Whether you come to us as a seller, a buyer or simply to discuss your alternatives, you will be impressed by the professionalism and enthusiasm of our Associates. At Turpin Real Estate, we want the experience of selling or purchasing a home to be gratifying to all concerned. We enjoy our work, and feel comfortable calling on one another for assistance or expertise. We know our clients and customers benefit from this team spirit. Client satisfaction is, and always has been, our most important goal.


Over the years, Turpin has carefully cultivated a roster of alliance partners through which we connect home buyers and sellers. This network, unique to Turpin, enables us to fully leverage the digital, social and print-media networks that span the globe, ensuring optimal visibility for our listings.

Leading Real Estate Companies of the World

Leading Real Estate Companies of the World (LRE) delivers an unmatched referral channel through which Turpin services home buyers from across the country and around the globe. Its commanding 40% conversion rate on referral business (as compared to the national average of 20%), means that when fellow LRE affiliates send their clients to Turpin, those clients very often become our buyers. Fellow member firms- of which there are 500 companies in 4,000 offices worldwide, making LRE the largest global network of local brands- dominate the U.S.’s Top 500 list year after year and collectively close more sales than any other network or franchise ($380 billion in overall production in 201X).

Luxury Portfolio International

Luxury Portfolio International is the luxury face of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World. Its website LuxuryPortfolio.com receives over 3 million high-net-worth visitors annually from 200 countries/territories, who search its gallery of fine properties (average list price $2.6 million USD) for traditional estates, exotic island retreats, country manors, urban pieds-à-terre and anything in between. Being among only 200 boutique member firms that comprise LPI enables Turpin to present our high-end listings on LuxuryPortfolio.com, providing valuable and far-ranging exposure for our clients’ fine homes. Studies confirm that affluent home buyers are conducting housing research online. And high-net-worth consumers are driven to the Luxury Portfolio website through targeted advertising in such leading luxury lifestyle publications as Town and Country, Departures, Architectural Digest and the Wall Street Journal.

Mayfair International Realty

Based in London and with more than 300 affiliated offices throughout the United Kingdom, Mayfair International Realty is the premiere luxury real estate network in Great Britain. Providing access to this network and its experienced London-based marketing team affirms Turpin's commitment to ensuring our clients’ properties reach the widest possible audience in the UK, the European marketplace and beyond. In addition to “boots on the ground,” Mayfair’s media collaborative is dedicated to garnering editorial coverage for Turpin listings in leading British outlets, such as the Times and the Telegraph. Additionally, Turpin properties are promoted on the website of Country Life, Britain’s leading luxury property magazine. Because this agreement is exclusive, its benefits are not available from any other broker in Turpin’s Northern New Jersey market area.

Christies International Real Estate

Drawing upon their success as one of the world’s oldest art auction houses, Christie’s offers an innovative real estate platform that proves the marketing of fine art and high-end properties to be a natural combination. For specialized properties, Turpin will bring to bear Christies’ global marketing programs, which bolster exposure among a cultivated clientele worldwide. For truly great estates, Turpin leverages Christie’s Bespoke Marketing Program, which consolidates specialized services that finesse valuable connections, secure prominent advertising placements and implement polished media initiatives, guaranteeing a personal touch within the global marketplace. Fellow affiliated brokerages worldwide, like Turpin, have been held to stringent vetting standards before being awarded membership status, ensuring that placement with Christies affords the exceedingly high levels of service required for success in luxury real estate.

Tri-State Alliance

The New York metro area encompasses a closely interconnected web of real estate markets, with thousands of people relocating and acquiring investment or vacation properties throughout the region annually. In 2012 Turpin joined three other of the region’s leading residential brokerages-- Houlihan Lawrence (Westchester, Putnam and Dutchess counties in New York and Greenwich, CT), Halstead Property (NYC and Southern Connecticut), and Coach Realtors (Long Island)-- to form the Tri-State Alliance. This affiliation benefits Turpin listing clients by promoting our properties on all four member websites, which collectively receive more than one million unique visitors each month. Furthermore, it strengthens the collaborative working relationship among fellow market leaders, reflecting the mutual trust and respect participating firms have developed after many years of referring buyers to member firms, and bringing more buyers to our doorstep.
