Mimi Neuhaus and Carl Neuhaus, Broker Owners of Neuhaus Realty, held their agency’s 2015 annual awards ceremony at The Richmond County Country Club.
The recipients of the Eagle Awards, Elite President, President, and Million Dollar Club Awards attained very high standards of excellence – standards deliberately set high by Neuhaus Realty. These prestigious awards are based on productivity levels that are determined by overall sales dollar volume combined with number of sales transactions. Every year, Mrs. Neuhaus holds this event to acknowledge the professionalism and achievements of Neuhaus’ top producers among their real estate peers. The MLS statistics confirm Neuhaus Realty has sold more homes on Staten Island than any other company for the past 47 years.
There were awards presented to both the New York and New Jersey Neuhaus Realty associates. “In the face of a challenging and ever-changing market place, all of our associates have maintained the highest levels of performance.
For the first time at Neuhaus Realty, we had a tie for the Eagle Award between Tony Ragucci and Guy Marasa in the Staten Island office. Valerie Santangelo won the Eagle award from our Holmdel New Jersey office.
Mr. Ragucci started his real estate career 30 + years ago at Neuhaus Realty, and is a full-time, full-service broker. He is dedicated to meeting the unique and ever-changing demands of his clients and customers. With an impressive list of awards over his years – including the Staten Island Board of Realtors’ Top Producer, Neuhaus’ Elite President Club and ninth Eagle Award, Mr. Ragucci proves he is a top-quality broker. The SIBOR once again awarded Tony with the Gold Hall of Fame Award for the 12th consecutive year. Tony is also published in the Cambridge Who’s Who in Real Estate, being recognized as one of the Top Brokers in the country. Mr. Ragucci attributes his success to his belief in hard work, his ability to educate buyers and sellers, and his pride in always doing the best job possible. He is an inspiration to new associates who benefit from his expertise and advice. Mr. Ragucci demonstrates an unfailing work ethic, a vast knowledge of the real estate market, and strong organizational skills and caring demeanor. This has earned him the respect of his peers as well as a large referral base, which is unsurpassed by anyone on Staten Island. He is also an active community member, serving as chairman of SIBOR’s Ethics Committee. Says Mrs. Neuhaus, “Tony is as consummate a professional as you will ever find. His expertise and passion help both buyers and sellers through every transaction. He truly loves what he does, and it shows.”
With more than 20 years experience in the Real Estate Industry, Gaetano (Guy) Marasa has been on the fast track to success and is consistently recognized as a Top Producer. This year Guy was awarded the Eagle Award and the Prestigious Elite Presidents Club Award from Neuhaus Realty. The Staten Island Board of Realtors awarded him the Gold Top Producers Award. While his primary mission is to place each buyer in a home they love, or achieve the best return on each seller’s property, Guys’ greatest reward comes from the thanks he continually receives for doing an exemplary job. Clients appreciate the patience, dedication and loyalty he demonstrates throughout the course of their transaction with his brilliant negotiating skills. Mimi Neuhaus, Broker/Owner of Neuhaus Realty, graciously stated “Guy has had tremendous success in his Real Estate career and I believe it is the fact that he focuses intently on each and every customer and client.” Adds Mrs. Neuhaus, “His conversion ratio is unsurpassed. Guy will continue to be a big contributor to our Award-Winning Sales Team at Neuhaus.” Guy sells Real Estate in Staten Island, Brooklyn and in New Jersey.
Valerie Santangelo of the Holmdel, NJ office was awarded the Eagle Award for the sixth time. A 20-year veteran, Valerie specializes in custom homes in Monmouth and Ocean counties. She is a high-energy person, and as a result, year after year she achieves another level. She ranked among the top 100 agents in 2014 for Monmouth County. As the recipient of the Top Producer, Mentor of the Year and Circle of Excellence awards, her business philosophy has always been to provide the highest quality of professional service to her clients. Her business acumen and her passion about real estate are evident from the first meeting. She is currently the Sales Director of 52 units at The Enclave in Tinton Falls, NJ, an adult community development. The development can be viewed at EnclaveNJ.com where many 55+ prospective Staten Islanders are considering the move.
