John Vetere, a licensed real estate salesperson, is the Operations Manager for The Ko Team. As a lifelong New Yorker, John grew up in a tight-knit community in the Bronx. After graduating from Fordham College at Lincoln Center with dual degrees in Theatre Arts/Lighting Design and English, John began his career in publishing. He pivoted into the real estate industry when he became a Property Manager for cooperatives and condominiums in Manhattan and Queens.
John first met Gina Ko when they were neighbors in their coop building. At the time, John was a Managing Agent for Bell Realty, reviewing purchase applications for the building he represented. As Gina sold several of those apartments, John got to know her personality and work ethic. John was impressed that Gina and her team always went the extra mile to prepare listings in a predictive manner, present meticulously prepared sales packages, and create a smooth process for all parties involved. John appreciated that level of detail, so when the opportunity to join The Ko Team presented itself, he was thrilled to bring his 10 years of experience in residential building operations to the other side of the transaction.
John welcomes you to reach out to The Ko Team for all your real estate needs: selling your property in this white-hot market; upsizing or downsizing in the city; looking for a pied-à-terre in Manhattan or out East in the Hamptons or; relocating across the US or even across the globe. Whatever your real estate goals may be, The Ko Team is here for you!
