When you decide to purchase or sell a townhouse in Manhattan, you soon discover that the transaction is as unique
and intricate as the townhouse itself.
While Dexter focuses on negotiations to achieve top prices for you, Vandenberg’s team of high-level
specialists organizes each sale so that every detail is attended to, every inspection is carried through,
all research is completed, and every document obtained.
Rather than one Realtor trying to work all the details, you have an entire team at your side – and it doesn’t
cost you a dime more.
While this “team concept” is rarely practiced elsewhere in Manhattan, we see it as the only efficient way to provide
superior brokerage and attentive service to each of our valued clients.
As a result, our clients return again and again. They also refer others: in 2011 alone, 40% of our sellers and 20% of
our buyers have been client referrals.
Founder, Principal and President, Vandenberg, Inc.
To understand Dexter Guerrieri’s individualized style and one-of-a-kind service as Manhattan’s townhouse expert,
we thought we would first include some snippets from the people whose opinions really matter – his clients:
“Dexter Guerrieri looks and acts like a very nice, well-spoken, unflappable guy. It’s when he starts talking
about Manhattan townhouses that you realize he’s probably the most savvy real estate expert in this niche in all of
New York City …”
“Dexter Guerrieri is way, way ahead of the curve about not only what a townhouse is but what it could be. He can
literally add millions of dollars to a property’s value and sale with just a few words of advice.”
Jane van den Berg Ordway
Principal and Vice President
A resident of Manhattan since the late 1970s, Jane Ordway became a business partner with Dexter Guerrieri in 1980 and
helped him establish Vandenberg Real Estate in 1990. Through the company’s first few years, she remained a silent partner
but, as more clients began to rely on Vandenberg Real Estate as Manhattan’s premier townhouse expert, Jane climbed into
the rapidly expanding business in 2000.
While Dexter remains focused on our sellers’ needs, Jane is involved in the operations of the company to ensure continued
smooth support of Dexter, and our team’s commitment to excellence in client service.
Jane oversees the company’s strategic growth plan and implements the company’s vision into daily systems and
structures. Her day-to-day direction and management includes marketing, finance, personnel hires, policy-making and team processes.
Client Care Coordinator
From the moment a townhouse owner first calls us until their house goes into contract, Nicole Green works as their ally and
advocate. Thoroughly knowledgeable, she is here to guide owners through each step of their townhouse sale. She works seamlessly
with Dexter to analyze the market potential of each new listing and guide that listing all the way through a successful closing.
Cathy Connolly is so tenacious and savvy in her search for the perfect townhouses for Vandenberg’s buyers, that we
often wonder if she’s actually the buyer.
As Vandenberg Real Estate’s Buyer Specialist, Cathy ferrets out every bit of information you could think to ask.
As Buyer Specialist, Tim Hansley works exclusively with Vandenberg’s buyers. When they first contact Tim, he draws on his detailed
market knowledge to research and show them every townhouse that fits their needs – including townhouses that aren't even listed yet.
When it comes to bidding and negotiations, he teams up with Dexter, so buyers have the benefit of their combined experience. Buyers
will find the townhouse purchase process smoother and more profitable than they ever thought possible.
