Get to Know Me
Eileen Vandervelde is a native New Yorker with over 25 years of corporate experience. NYC, Baltimore, and Washington DC were all stops on her path to Green Lake, WI. After graduating from the University of Maryland, Eileen began her career in the fashion industry where she quickly adapted to the demanding and fast-paced rhythm of New York City. Working for powerhouse industry leaders such as Donna Karan, Versace, and Ermenegildo Zegna formed a foundation of professionalism & attention to detail that continues in her work today.
Eileen lived in the Washington DC Metro Area for ten years, and, the training & mentoring she received as a Meetings & Events Coordinator with The Ritz-Carlton Hotel was particularly impressionable. Organizing elegant parties & important political events in the nation's capital, Eileen gained invaluable experience working for clients who expected flawless service at every turn.
Relocating to the Ripon/Green Lake area from the East Coast was an easy decision. Her dream of buying a home and raising a family in this close-knit, Midwest community was realized in 2008, and she has never looked back. The magic of big Green Lake, the genuine kindness of her local family, neighbors, and friends has solidified her belief that this was the best life-decision to date.
Eileen has sold Real Estate in Green Lake for over 11 years, and is a valued member of her community. Her strong industry relationships and expert knowledge of the local real estate market are an asset in all sales transactions. Whether clients are looking to buy or sell a home - in the Green Lake area and beyond - the warmth and sincerity that Eileen brings to the table will ensure a smooth experience every time.
Active in the local community, Eileen is a Board Member at Green Lake's Town Square Community Center and is an active member of the Green Lake Yacht Club. She and her husband Drew live on Green Lake, and are the proud parents of two young children.
Eileen was the perfect partner for us on our quest to sell our beloved Ripon home we had owned/ loved for 42 years. She accurately profiled the market dynamics at our price point and deployed all viable resources to reach motivated buyers. A tireless advocate for the value driven by the quality of life in this geographical area, Eileen inspired an ongoing sense of optimism in all through each step of the process :) Her willingness to help with even minute details was greatly appreciated.— Paula D
It was an absolute pleasure to work with Eileen and we would highly recommend her! She hit deadlines, negotiated well with the sellers and did a terrific job of smoothing over small hiccups with them during the buying process, was a great communicator, and always found quick answers to our questions. Eileen is well connected, has willingly provided numerous local referrals and recommendations, and gave us such a warm welcome to the community.— Briana L
Our experience with Eileen was amazing! I would imagine that many of us know of someone who is a Realtor.. maybe not. But, I would also imagine few of us know a Realtor that is experienced in the craft of taking a deal from start to finish with not only industry knowledge but also tact and professionalism. Having her as the go between for our recent purchase was such a breath of fresh air. Clarity, follow through and competence... those are my take aways in dealing with Eileen. You won't find a better person to represent you in the Green Lake area! From the get go you could tell she was honest and had your basic best intentions in mind. Sincerity ...— Green Lake Buyer
