Deeply Rooted Local Leadership.
Village Green Realty was founded in 1991 by Joan Lonergan, a native of Ulster County. As a young real estate agent Joan saw other agents turning away business because they were waiting on a “big fish.” She glimpsed an opening in the market for someone who was willing to work with everyone, whether they were looking for a luxury property or a small parcel of land. Joan struck out on her own, opening an office on the green in Woodstock and becoming one of the few female real estate brokers in the area at the time. What Joan began has grown to 8 offices, 150 agents, and 20 support staff who serve 8 counties. Joan wasn’t just willing to work with everyone; she also believed all her clients deserved the same level of service. Village Green’s agents, management and staff are lead by the 4 guiding principles Joan assigned herself when she first opened her doors to anyone who needed great representation:
1. Always Tell The Truth.
2. Deliver On Your Promises.
3. Don't Pretend To Know Something You Don't; Find Out.
4. It's Not About Us: It's About Our Clients.
In 2001 Joan became a Coldwell Banker affiliate as a way to serve Village Green’s listing clients. In a world where innovation and global reach were becoming an important part of the real estate landscape, aligning with a trusted brand that shared her values and provided a powerful marketing platform to deliver Village Green’s listings to a global audience was an imperative next step.
In the early 2000s, as Village Green began to expand geographically, Joan began to search for a partner who would continue her legacy of female leadership and grow the company’s services and sales without losing sight of the original vision. The Coldwell Banker Village Green family is now headed by Candida Ellis, who has guided its growth over the past decade, creating a culture that allows our agents to shine by providing them every opportunity to grow and learn, every marketing advantage, and the best support structure in the business. She’s joined by Chief Operations Officer Guy Barretta, formerly of Coldwell Banker Corporate; together they provide a focused local leadership that has moved Coldwell Banker Village Green Realty into Coldwell Banker’s Chairman’s Circle - among the top 11% of Coldwell Banker affiliates.
