Representing luxury homes with

distinct character and timeless appeal.

The Turchin Companies opened its own luxury real estate company in the North Carolina High Country in 2005. In addition to exclusively marketing the company’s signature development, The Lodges at Eagles Nest, for 10 years the firm focused on providing a superior level of real estate service, marketing, and expertise in the Blue Ridge Mountains. In 2015, the firm was acquired by one of the largest Sotheby’s International Realty franchises in the world- Premier Sotheby’s International Realty. Headquartered in Naples, Florida, Premier Sotheby’s International Realty has over 900 associates and employees in 32 locations throughout Florida and in the Carolinas. In 2014, the annual Real Trends 500 survey ranked the firm number 31 in its survey of the top U.S. residential sellers. As a member of the global Sotheby’s International Realty® network, with over 17,000 sales associates and 800 offices in 61 countries and territories world-wide, Premier Sotheby’s International Realty agents are local experts that think on a global level and specialize in the most unique properties in all price ranges throughout the Blue Ridge Mountains.
