Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate has begun the year by signing up three new brokerages in Southern states, adding 202 agents to its network.
The franchise network’s latest addition is Spartanburg, S.C.-based brokerage Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Young & Co., formerly known as Prudential C. Dan Joyner Co., Realtors.
The brokerage adds two offices and 75 agents to the Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate network and will continue to be headed by owner and president Evelyn K. Young.
"The technologies and resources that are now available to our agents, along with the national brand recognition, are going to be key factors in continuing the growth of our corporate relocation and residential real estate business," Young said in a statement Tuesday.
Last week, Augusta, Ga.-based Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Executive Partners, formerly Executive Partners, also signed up, adding two offices and 104 agents to the network.
"As a company that values a fast-paced, technology-driven work environment, we are excited to use the innovative tools and resources that are offered by the brand to help best serve our clients," said owner Tommy Stephenson in a statement.
College Station, Texas-based brokerage Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Preferred Living was the first brokerage to join the Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate network this year. The newly formed brokerage has 23 agents and will open its office later this month.
A subsidiary of Realogy Corp., Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate operates a network with about 7,000 sales associates and more than 200 offices in 24 U.S. states and Canada.
The franchise network last added a new brokerage, Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Safari Realty, in November. The Staten Island brokerage is the network’s first in the New York City market.
In October, the network announced it had signed a 25-year master franchise agreement to expand the brand across Canada, its first foray outside of the U.S.
