Orange County’s Green Team Affiliates With Better Homes and Gardens RE
WARWICK—Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate LLC recently announced the affiliation with the Green Team in Warwick, which expands the brand’s service area in the Hudson Valley and Sussex County, N.J.
The firm, which now operates as Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Green Team, is led by second-generation broker Geoff Green and president, Vikki Garby. Green grew up around his parents’ real estate brokerage business and began his real estate career in the commercial sector, working for Pyramid Management Group, a shopping center developer in New York and Massachusetts. In 2005, he briefly joined his father’s residential brokerage in Goshen before opening his full-service firm in Warwick, in 2006. The firm now operates offices in Warwick and neighboring Sussex County, NJ.
Garby began her career in investment banking and real estate investing, leveraging her experience to transition into a real estate sales career in 2015. She was named president of the brokerage firm earlier this year.
The company serves residential clients across various price points in the Hudson Valley of New York and Sussex County in New Jersey, with divisions specializing in new construction, commercial and luxury properties.
Green intends to strategically recruit professional, career-minded agents in any phase of their careers who will be attracted to the BHGRE brand’s unique design and lifestyle content and resources. Green is also looking to expand the company by adding offices in key regions.
Sherry Chris, President & CEO, Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate, said, “Growing up in the real estate business, Geoff naturally developed deep industry knowledge on everything from residential and commercial to land development. His emphasis on building a core competency in technology platforms has created a dynamic environment for sustained agent growth and exceptional client support. Vikki’s real estate expertise paired with her passion for helping clients navigate the homebuying and selling process are significant factors in helping to build a thriving real estate brokerage. We are thrilled to partner with both Geoff and Vikki in further expanding the company into new markets.”
Green, Broker/Owner, Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Green Team, added, “My goal was always to be a regional brokerage, an objective we accomplished over the last 15 years. Our partnership with Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate positions our company to achieve an even more aggressive growth strategy that will solidify our future.”
The Green Team supports organizations such as the Backpack Snack Attack, the Warwick Humane Society and the Rotary. In addition, the company created Team Up for Hope, which helps nonprofits at the forefront of mental health and addiction.
The Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate network includes more than 12,490 independent sales associates and approximately 400 offices serving home buyers and sellers across the United States, Canada, Jamaica, The Bahamas, Australia and New Zealand.
