RISMEDIA, March 18, 2011—Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate LLC announced it was rated No. 15 among the top-50 small franchise systems in the Franchise Business Review 2011 Franchisee Satisfaction Awards. The company also earned honorable mention honors among all franchise systems in the real estate category. The Franchise Business Review awards are an annual ranking of franchisee satisfaction in 16 industry categories and are based on responses collected from thousands of independent surveys. Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate received high marks across a variety of categories including training and support, operations, franchisor/franchisee relations, and financial opportunity, among others.
“We constantly strive to create an exceptional real estate franchise experience through our technology leadership, agent recruitment strategies, broker business-building systems, and comprehensive consumer lifestyle value proposition,” said Sherry Chris, president and CEO of Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate. “We believe we have assembled the essential elements of a real estate platform that can help provide franchisees with a competitive advantage in their marketplace. It is very gratifying to see it result in both our brand’s strategic growth and the receipt of such a prestigious award.”
In less than three years since its launch, the Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate network has grown to approximately 7,000 sales associates and 196 offices serving home buyers and sellers in 21 states.
“In tough economic times, franchisees are especially reliant on their franchisor to go the extra mile and really deliver value,” said Franchise Business Review president and CEO Eric Stites. “Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate distinguished itself in this survey as a firm that consistently over-delivers and is developing the tools and technology critical to its franchisees’ success.”
