Established in 2005 by Warwick-native, Geoffrey Green, Green Team Realty began as a locally owned and operated full-service agency. Since opening, Geoff and his team have developed revolutionary operations for Realtors and their buyers and/or sellers from across the region allowing it to soar the ranks; currently in the top 1% of all Real Estate offices in both Sussex County, NJ and Orange County, NY.
“It is time for us to take the next step in terms of growing our organization” says Green. “We have proven over the course of time that we can deliver a great environment for Real Estate Agents to thrive, and for them to, in turn, deliver an exceptional experience to all of their clients. Promoting Vikki Garby to President of Green Team Realty will allow us to seek out new opportunities for more Sales Associates in new locations. Vikki is definitely the right person to help us achieve the intended growth we are seeking.”
Geoff Green has dedicated his professional career to building great businesses; he is also the co-Founder and CEO of Nuop, Inc. NuOp is a digital marketplace where Members make money by exchanging business opportunities with one another. With more growth for NuOp on the horizon, Geoff is appointing Vikki Garby as President of Green Team Realty which will provide him with more time and energy to focus on building a second business. Vikki Garby will not only continue what has been created with Green Team Realty, but will focus on enhancement and grow its influence in the region. Geoff will remain as the Real Estate Broker of record for all Green Team agencies and continue to oversee all related operations.
“I am extremely excited to take on this new and challenging role. Geoff has big shoes to fill. I have learned so much from him since joining his brokerage and I intend to exceed his expectations with this incredible opportunity.” Garby stated.
Vikki Garby is a successful career woman, happily married and a mother of two, thriving children. She graduated from Cornell University in 1997 with a focus on Finance. After graduation, she began her career in Investment Banking as an Analyst with Deutsche Bank. With a drive for success, she worked up the ranks to Associate and soon after, Vice President of the Structured Capital Markets division. In 2007, still with Deutsche Bank, she shifted over to their Longevity Derivatives Group where she joined as a Vice President and was soon promoted to Director. Here she structured, negotiated and executed multi-dimensional programs for the origination of premium finance loans and annuities which led the team in obtaining approval to sell longevity/mortality products in over a dozen countries.
The financial crisis of 2008, left many companies with no other option than to downsize; Deutsche Bank was no exception. Upon closing the Longevity Derivatives Group, Vikki was laid off. She didn’t allow that to stop the path she was on. With connections from her previous employer, Vikki began her own consulting firm called VAG Consulting acting as CEO/Founder.
In the meantime, Vikki and her husband pursued Real Estate Investments. With multiple properties purchased and subsequently rented, they decided it would make the most financial sense for Vikki to obtain her real estate license. With that, Vikki entered the Real Estate world.
Since joining Green Team Realty, Vikki has become a top salesperson, developed a desired reputation and is the recipient of many sales awards. She has been a top 10 finisher for the past 6 years at Green Team New York Realty. She is also the most prolific commercial real estate producer in the history of Green Team Realty.
In addition to her career success, Vikki has dedicated her free time to the community. Her volunteer experience is extensive and includes acting roles as: a board member of the Warwick Foundation for Excellence in Learning, First Lego League Coach, Cub Scout Den Leader, Sunday School Teacher, Treasurer of Kings Elementary PTA, and Treasurer then President of the Warwick Crew Booster Club.
Upon her transition into presidency, Vikki will continue to work with current and past clients to ensure their real estate needs are met.
“She is clearly a rising star in this industry and she is ready to take on the role of President at Green Team Realty. We are just thrilled to see how far Vikki can lead our organization.”, said Green.
“My goals are to make sure our agents continue to be well supported as they work towards their career goals. I will also seek new tools and opportunities to keep our agency one step ahead so we can continue to provide the very best service to our clients. Growing Green Team Realty will occur strategically and in a controlled manner such that our level of service and the quality of our agents shall not waver.” said Garby.
