VRE beginnings
Vandermeer Real Estate was started in 2013 by Principal Broker John Vandermeer II and Realtor Dorene Vandermeer. They are long time residents of the beautiful city of Portland Oregon. John graduated from Oregon State University with a degree in Business Administration. He became a Realtor in 2003 and has seen it through both up and down real estate markets. Dorene Vandermeer worked in the bridal industry as a designer for over 25 years and decided in 2013 to get her license and team up with John. John and Dorene have been married for twenty-seven years and are the parents to 20 year old triplets. John and Dorene continue to be a hard working real estate team!

VRE Roots
In 1962 John’s family immigrated from Holland to the USA so that they could live the American dream. John grew up watching his parents work hard and chisel out a living in the beautiful state of Oregon, and was taught at a young age that “hard work pays off.”

Vandermeer means “From the Lake,” so it seemed only natural to John to pull from his Dutch roots when naming and building a real estate brokerage. With over 14 years of experience as a Realtor and Dorene’s over 25 years in sales and design John and Dorene make a balanced team that will work “together” to provide their clients with the most comprehensive service, focusing on highly responsive care.

As they set out to built their Realtor team they were passionate to find Realtors that had that same desire to provide each client with comprehensive service with highly responsive care.
