RISMEDIA, August 6, 2009-Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate LLC celebrates one year since the launch of its franchise system, with a growing network of 2,100 agents across 75 offices in 10 states. In its first year of operations, the newest national real estate franchise has surpassed expectations and gained momentum in a challenging housing market by distinguishing itself as the industry’s consumer lifestyle brand. Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate combines an iconic brand known for all things home with a next generation real estate business driven by the latest technologies, advanced agent tools and award-winning consumer marketing.

It has proven to be a winning combination for homebuyers, brokerage owners, and agents alike.”
Some of the most noteworthy tools and initiatives the franchisor has launched in the last year include: Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate’s dynamic, consumer-friendly website; Its influential “Clean Slate” blog; The GreenLight Program, a fundamental career development program delivered via live online meetings and the Sales Wiki, which allows the brand’s agents and brokers to find information on real estate topics quickly and easily.
