Coldwell Banker Village Green Realty announced today that their new office at West Main Street in Goshen is officially open. The company has remodeled the space previously occupied by the much-loved ‘Goshen Gourmet’ at 134 West Main Street to accommodate the already growing staff of agents. Coldwell Banker Village Green Realty has 5 other Real Estate offices in the Hudson Valley, in Kingston, New Paltz, Stone Ridge, Woodstock and Windham. The company ranked #1 in Sales in both Ulster and Greene Counties in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014.
Joan Lonergan, the Principal Broker and owner of Coldwell Banker Village Green Realty lived in Florida, NY for many years and has remained very connected to the surrounding communities. She formed life-long friendships in Goshen that have brought her back again and again. Over the past few years she began to see a need for the type of Real Estate services that Coldwell Banker Village Green provides. “The market called us to Orange County and particularly to Goshen. We already promote the area on our website, Villagegreenrealty.com. Our marketing generates a tremendous amount of buyer interest in the Orange County area so it was a natural next step. Friends, clients and customers were asking us to come and we’re here! Setting up the office and becoming immersed in this community again is such a thrill for me.”
Coldwell Banker Village Green Realty plans to offer the same Real Estate services in Goshen that have made them successful in Ulster and Greene Counties.
“I attribute our success to 3 things. First, our affiliation with Coldwell Banker. I started Village Green Realty over 20 years ago in a tiny office in Woodstock, just off the Village Green. We decided to partner with Coldwell Banker because I realized they could offer our clients national and international exposure, the instant recognition of a trusted brand, as well as provide our team of agents and staff with cutting edge training and resources. The partnership has helped us grow and provide the absolute best service to our clients and customers.
Second, our dedicated, passionate agents. They are trained and empowered to do everything possible to help their clients achieve their financial and personal goals.
Third, our marketing. We are always pushing the envelope of technology and are never afraid to embrace ground-breaking ideas and change. This keeps the company and our clients ahead of the game. The places where home buyers are looking for information, and what type of information they want changes often, we cater to what’s most important to people. We have a marketing staff that’s quite large by industry standards. We do this so that we can provide our sellers with an experience that goes way beyond ordinary”. said Lonergan.
“Our goal for 2015 and beyond is to offer the highest level of service and marketing to the Orange County market. We do business a little differently, and we’re excited to share what we have to offer with anyone who’s interested. We also plan to increase our sales staff. Coldwell Banker is known in the Real Estate industry for providing the very best training. We hire and train professionals who want to embrace Real Estate Sales as a career. In this robust real estate market, Millennials are beginning to enter the industry as well. We are especially excited to show young professionals the way”, said Candida Ellis, Managing Partner.
