HOLDERNESS, NH — Eric Turchon, a new sales agent in the Holderness office of Badger Peabody & Smith Realty, admits that he is a "work hard, play hard" type of agent.

A resident of the Granite State since 2007, he has embraced "its authentic lifestyle and its many recreational opportunities," like boating on Squam Lake, snowboarding at Loon Mountain and hiking all 48 4,000 footers. "I love sharing my passion and knowledge of the area with my clients." he says.

Turchon graduated with a business degree from Plymouth State University. He gained years of valuable sales and customer service experience working as a buyer/manager in the snow sports industry. His background as a freelance photographer has also been an asset to his real estate career bringing "a creative element to my workflow."

Turchon was previously a successful agent at another real estate company, but joined Badger Peabody & Smith Realty after sitting down with Andy Smith, the company's President, and listening to his business philosophy. "I wanted to join a firm that has a reputation for results but also values elements like caring and consistency and giving back to the community, as well as accountability," he says. "That appeals to me."

"We're delighted to welcome Eric to the Badger Peabody & Smith team," says Smith. "His strong background in real estate and customer service and his in-depth knowledge of the Holderness and the surrounding region are invaluable qualities that will benefit our buyers and sellers."
