Banking question? (Izmir)

Know that I can wire money to an account in Turkey. I dont have a bank account in Turkey yet. Spoke with my bank in the US and said that was not problem wiring the money. Problem is, I need a bank account in Turkey before I can transfer a large amount of money. If I move to Turkey open up an account then call my bank.....they can only wire about 2k at a time. Will be a moving to Turkey full time and will buy a house and car and will need a lot of funds. Don't want to sever my accounts with the US. Is there a bank that operates in Turkey and the US? Heard that CITI bank has branches in Turkey? Any ideas?
