Ted Townsley is a team player. He is intuitive about finding his role on a team and doing his part to bring the team success. He joined Fit Realty with that strong team spirit, partnering with his sister Katy Negroni. Ted loves talking to people and slides easily into conversation. He has a desire to help people and real estate is a great conduit for that passion.
Born and raised in Portsmouth, Ted played football at Churchland HS and was able to take that talent up to the University of Maryland, graduating with a Family Science degree. Not only did Ted start in over 75% of the games, he also graduated as a scholar athlete, maintaining a GPA above 3.0. He is smart, determined, and dedicated. Ted is also very relational. “Relationships can give you the chance to help others,” said Ted. That strong motivation to meet and connect with people has helped Ted develop a network of contacts throughout Hampton Roads. Ted likes to use his network to help his clients.
After graduating Ted used his people and networking skills in the auto industry. He found he had an affinity for sales and management, helping his dealership Pohanka Acura win the title of #1 Acura dealership in the world. Ted moved back to the Tidewater area after a few years, and found his place at Tysinger Audi where he was named 2015 Salesman of the Year. Ted then transferred his skills to the housing industry and started a contracting business with some friends. He found he enjoyed helping clients as they worked through the finishing details on their homes. Through his interaction with clients he got more familiar with real estate.
Ted’s sister Katy became a real estate agent and Ted decided to join her, working as a team here at Fit Realty. Ted and Katy grew up in a close family with parents who emphasized the value of family. Working together on a team is a natural transition for them.
A lifetime of playing sports has also developed strong character in Ted. He is passionate about getting young people involved in sports. Ted is one of the coaches for the Oscar Smith HS football team. His team has made it to the state championship the last three years. Though he loves football, his goal for his kids reaches higher. “Helping kids try to get to college is my passion.” Ted is also a certified physical trainer and enjoys sharing his workouts with friends and clients. He works with his student athletes and tries to help as many people as he can.
Ted has a girlfriend Leslie, a 3-year-old Saint Bernard Cooper who eats him out of house and home, and a beautiful daughter Audriana who is 7. In his down time, you can find Ted on the beach boating or jet skiing. He and Leslie also enjoy good food at local restaurants like The Chophouse in Suffolk and Waterman’s Surfside Grill in Virginia Beach.
