Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate LLC recently announced the affiliation of Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Green Team based in Warwick, NY, which expands the brand’s service area into the Hudson Valley, NY and County of Sussex, NJ
The company is led by second-generation broker Geoff Green and chairman, Vikki Garby. Green grew up around her parents’ real estate brokerage business and began her real estate career in the commercial sector, working for Pyramid Management Group, a mall developer in New York and Massachusetts. In 2005, he briefly joined his father’s residential brokerage in Goshen, NY, before opening his full-service company in Warwick, NY, in 2006. Garby began his career in investment banking and investment real estate, leveraging his experience to transition into a real estate sales career in 2015.
The company serves residential customers across different price points in New York’s Hudson Valley and New Jersey’s Sussex County, with divisions specializing in new construction, commercial and luxury properties.
New York’s Hudson Valley and New Jersey’s Vernon Township are surrounded by mountains, lakes and farms, offering old-fashioned country with a modern twist. Nearby Appalachian trails make this a year-round hotspot with plenty of hiking opportunities. The area is also popular with skiers and boaters. The town center village of Warwick gives a touch of the town with many restaurants and shops, while many large farms support the important agritourism activity in the area.
Green intends to recruit career-minded professional agents at any stage of their career. He is also looking to expand the business and its influence by adding offices in key regions.
Green will leverage Distinctive Collection by Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate®, the brand’s luxury marketing program, to increase the company’s presence in the region’s luxury market and to meet the specific needs of the high-end clientele.
PinPointSM, BHGRE®’s proprietary tool that leverages consumer behavior data from Better Homes & Gardens magazine and its publisher Dotdash, Meredith’s customer database of more than 175 million consumers, will play a in customer acquisition support for the company’s affiliated agents.
Agents will have access to Be Better® University, the brand’s professional development and learning platform. Courses are available for brokers and affiliated agents on a variety of topics, from luxury certification and productivity training to technology and skills development. Classes and workshops are offered live, virtually and on-demand.
Commitment to their community through sponsorships, fundraising, volunteerism and donations is part of the brokerage’s culture.
