JIM D'AMICO CEO and president of CENTURY 21 North East, is an expert team builder—so much so that the brokerage entered the Top 10 CENTURY 21® companies for the first time this year, with over $1.4 bil - lion in real estate sales. D'Amico bought his first one-office franchise as a start-up in 1994; now, it has 800 agents in 40 locations across New Hampshire, as well as Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
