NJ REALTORS® Again Honors Mario Venancio

Mario Venancio, a sales associate for more than two decades with Gloria Nilson & Co. Real Estate, was awarded the 2016 NJ REALTORS® Circle of Excellence Agent Mario VenancioSales Award® Platinum, having distinguished himself among his peers with more than $113 million in completed transactions last year. 

“Mario has taken his real estate career to the pinnacle of success through hard work and dedication,” said P.J. Rotchford, the broker-manager of Gloria Nilson & Co.’s Rumson office where Venancio is based. “Mario’s expertise and reputation are examples for real estate professionals to strive toward. He continues to provide exceptional service year after year as one of the top Realtors in New Jersey.”

Venancio, who has consistently ranked among the top producing real estate professionals in New Jersey for several years and earned some of the industry’s highest honors, is no stranger to NJ Realtors Circle of Excellence Sales Awards. During his 24-year real estate career, Venancio has earned NJ Realtors Circle of Excellence Sales Awards, 1994, 1998, 2000 Bronze; 1995-1997, 1999 Silver; 2001-2002-Gold, 2003-2015 Platinum.

“It’s an unbelievably rewarding feeling to find the perfect place for someone to live,” Venancio said.  “I’ve been successful in real estate because I know how important it is to have the right home for your family, and I keep that paramount in my mind when working with my clients. I’d like to thank everyone that’s made achieving this award possible.”

Last July, REAL Trends named Venancio as one of America’s Best Real Estate Agents by REAL Trends, and the number one agent in the Garden State. In June, he was also named as one of the country’s top real estate professionals as a member of “The Thousand Top Real Estate Professionals,” another prestigious national award sponsored by REAL Trends. That ranking also noted Venancio is in the top one half of 1 percent of the more than 1.1 million Realtors nationwide, a distinction he has held since 2013. 

Since 2001, Venancio has marketed and sold more than 745 homes, with sales of more than $721 million. In addition, he has been Gloria Nilson & Co.’s highest producing sales associate for each of the last eight years. 

“Mario has cemented himself as a top Realtor in New Jersey,” said Pat Bell, president of Gloria Nilson & Co. “His determination to help his clients and his track record of excellence put him in a class of his own. We congratulate him and look forward to his success for years to come.”

Venancio graduated from the University of Delaware with a degree in marketing and sales management and lives in Fair Haven, N.J., with his wife and three children.
