Vince Verni - Associate Real Estate Broker
With nearly 80% of his business based on repeat and referral clients, top-producing agent Vincent Verni of Signature Premier Properties in Babylon, New York is clearly doing something right. With over a decade of experience under his belt, Vincent has built a sturdy reputation as a trusted agent who always puts his client’s needs front and center.
Born and raised on Long Island, Vincent knows the area like the back of his hand, much to the benefit of his many buyers and sellers. “This is a wonderful place to live,” he enthuses. “You’re surrounded by the ocean and New York City, with access to so many varied activities.
“I’m always honest with people,” says Vincent, by way of explaining the impressive level of loyalty his clients have shown him. “In this business, your reputation and integrity are so important. I don’t just tell my clients what they want to hear to get the listing, and I won’t take a listing that I know I can’t sell. I understand how stressful the process is, whether it’s buying or selling, so I always try to keep them at ease.” The gratitude his clients feel for his services is best expressed by this review from Zillow.com: “Vince was great! I bought my first house through him, then when it came time to sell and buy a new one, we naturally used him again. He always went above and beyond what was expected of him, was always honest, reliable and professional. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to friends and family.”
Staying in touch with past clients is of vital importance to Vincent, and he works hard to convey his own gratitude towards them. “It’s not my client’s job to remember me,” he says, “it’s my job to not let my clients forget me.” That he has established many close friendships with his clients is evidence of this care. “I’ve become friends with many clients, I honestly care about them and their families. I’ve watched their children grow! I keep in touch with a lot of people through social media, Facebook and Instagram. I also have an e-mail newsletter that goes out to hundreds of people which works well for me”
Cutting edge, savvy marketing has also played a large role in Vincent’s continued success. “Today’s buyers are very technology-focused, visual and tactile,” he says, “so I advertise my listings on over 720 websites, utilize social media extensively, have professional photos taken and professional-grade marketing materials to create that enhanced feeling with customers.” Broker open houses, emailing fellow agents about his listings, and consultations regarding staging, home warranties and pre-inspections round out his approach.
While the financial rewards of his chosen profession are considerable, it’s the more personal side of the industry that Vincent finds most rewarding. “I truly enjoy helping clients achieve their goals,” he says, “whether they are selling their home or buying their first one. It’s always a new start either way. I’m a strong negotiator with excellent communication and organizational skills to close the deal.” “I love this business because each day is different, and each client is unique,” says Vincent. “There are many great agents, but I’ve set myself apart by combining my energy and empathy with the use of technology and professional experience in delivering success for my clients. I focus on each person and home individually, rather than all the same. In this business, I always say that 10% different is 100% better than your competition.”
Vincent enjoys spending his free time bonding with his husband and two daughters. “We enjoy going to the beach, and as a family we like to entertain at our home, especially summer barbeques and parties.” A music lover, he enjoys attending concerts and shows as often as he can. Additionally, Vincent gives back to his community through a variety of organizations that benefit veterans and other in-need individuals.
