We at Vandenberg – The Townhouse Experts® are elated to announce that our Team is now affiliated with Douglas Elliman Real Estate, New York City’s largest and most prestigious brokerage! Douglas Elliman Chairman Howard Lorber personally recruited us to anchor and grow the Elliman townhouse division.
Our team structure will remain the same, preserving the foundation Dexter and his partner, Jane van den Berg Ordway, developed 28 years ago, and building on the expertise and commitment of our current team.
With a continued focus on providing exceptional service to our sellers and buyers, we will expand our sales team with experienced and devoted agents, while maintaining operations out of our recently-renovated offices at 1995 Broadway.
Speaking about our new affiliation, Howard Lorber was quoted in The Real Deal, “A driving force in the Manhattan townhouse market for three decades, founders Dexter Guerrieri and Jane van den Berg Ordway’s entrepreneurial spirit and commitment to delivering world-class client service perfectly mirrors our own, and our combined strengths will provide many new opportunities across the New York City townhouse market.”
So why did we decide to join forces with Douglas Elliman Real Estate?
- Townhouse sales: They are what we do and we are intent on growing our market share across the city. We can do it faster, better, and easier with this affiliation, while continuing to assist sellers and buyers whose friendships we have built up over all these years
- Marketing leverage: the Elliman website boasts over four million visitors per month. Not only is Elliman the largest independent, non-franchise residential brokerage in the US; the firm has a strategic global alliance with London-based Knight Frank Residential for business in the worldwide luxury markets spanning 60 countries and six continents. We had our choice of any firm in the city, yet Elliman stood out as the right “fit” for our entrepreneurial business.
- Townhouse Lifestyles: Fostering townhouse living is what it’s all about. We can now better focus on sellers and buyers and not fret about keeping up with the latest technology or the nuts and bolts of running an independent company. Vandenberg has sold eight townhouses so far this year; we look forward to expanding this number as we introduce more buyers city-wide to townhouse lifestyles.
This is an absolutely thrilling moment for us! As always, never hesitate to reach out to the Vandenberg team for help with any of your townhouse needs.
