About Terry Toppa


I am a Broker Associate with RE/MAX in Newport, RI. and a member of the RE/MAX Hall of Fame. As a life-long resident of Newport County and A Real Estate Broker since 1985, I know the area and the real estate business extremely well. After graduating from Providence College in 1963, I taught math at Thompson Junior High for 3 years and was an assistant football and basketball coach at Roger's High School in 1965-1966.

I have opened and operated 2 very successful businesses in the Newport area. The first was Toppa's ( 1966-1985 ) and the second was Toppa's Laundry ( 1990-2001 ). Both are still operating and are very successful. I obtained my broker's real estate license in 1985 and opened Toppa Realty. I moved to RE/MAX in 1992.

Whether you are considering selling your home or purchasing a property in Newport County or southern Rhode Island, I will use my knowledge of the community - plus my commitment, creativity, honesty, and hard work to obtain the best results for you.
By working with only a few clients at a time, my clients have always been satisfied, and I am always available.
