Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate LLC has announced that Metro First Realty of Edmond, Okla., a residential real estate brokerage firm serving the Oklahoma City metro area, is the newest member of its franchise network. The firm, the brand’s first in Oklahoma, will now do business as Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Paramount.
Growing up working with his father on home renovations, Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Paramount Broker/Owner Rob Cowger gained an affinity for real estate at an early age. After earning both his agent and broker licenses, he eventually took charge of his own brokerage in 2007, leveraging his more than two decades of knowledge and passion for the industry to grow his company’s agent count from three to nearly 150 today.
Cowger’s decision to affiliate with the Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate brand was prompted by his desire to proactively provide his agents with the best possible resources. With access to the brand’s tools and full-service support, along with increased referrals and lead generation, the brokerage can better position itself at the forefront of innovation and recognition.
“Rob’s customer-centric philosophy and commitment to community echoes the values we cherish most,” says Sherry Chris, president and CEO, Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate. “I have the utmost confidence that he and his team will be a natural fit within our network. Every brokerage within our brand plays a key role in our overarching success. We look forward to seeing Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Paramount leverage our extensive toolset, support system, and their own experience to take the lead in an up-and-coming market.”
“I’m excited to bring the Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate brand to Oklahoma City metro area—not just for the city, but also for my affiliated agents,” says Cowger. “To be part of such a universally recognizable network will be key to future growth in the area. With a great brand behind us offering excellent tools and unparalleled support, we are on a path to be the leaders in real estate in this community.”
