Joan Lonergan
Licensed Real Estate Broker / Owner

I’m an Ulster County native, I attended John A. Coleman High School and grew up wading through the streams and wandering the woods of the Catskill Mountains. I returned home to Woodstock in 1986 after studying art and having a successful career in graphic design in the city. My husband Jim was in law school at Fordham then, commuting home from the city only on weekends. My two children were young, and while the commute was difficult we felt that the Ulster County lifestyle was the best choice for our family. I was still doing free-lance graphic design work but once my family was permanently settled I wanted a career that was more grounded in the area. I found myself naturally falling into the role of tour guide and cheerleader for the area when city friends came to visit. My graphic design and photography skills seemed to lend themselves well to Real Estate. So, I got my Real Estate License and the rest is history. I started Village Green Realty with one goal: To do the best job I could for every person who walked through my doors. I wasn’t picky about what price range people were looking in. I didn’t mind if they wanted to be in Saugerties or Olive and not famed “Woodstock”. If I went to list a property for clients who thought they wanted to upsize, I was likely to offer them my advice on how they might expand their house in a way that would add value to it so they could stay where they were happy. I just did my best for every client who came my way. As I slowly expanded my company I brought in agents who shared my work ethic. My business has grown into the largest Real Estate Company in Ulster and Greene Counties. We have offices in New Paltz, Kingston, Stone Ridge, Woodstock and Windham NY. With 100 agents and support staff we are still expanding. It’s amazing what doing your best can accomplish. My love of art has remained a constant in my life. All our offices are also galleries where I exhibit my own photography as well as the work of other local artists. In 2001, Jim and I designed and built our current home in Woodstock where I have my own pottery studio. I feel lucky to have achieved so many professional and artistic goals in my life. I really believe that there’s not another place on earth where I would have been inspired to create so much. A sale of property is so much more than a financial transaction. It always marks the end of an epoch in a client’s life and the beginning of another. I hope Coldwell Banker Village Green Realty can help you as you transition to whatever big thing is next for you.
