Brand Differentiation

Our tools and technology are designed to help our affiliated brokers and real estate professionals achieve a new level of business performance. What sets our brand apart from the competition is the personalized level of service and range of resources we provide.

“Our mission is to support and strengthen our affiliated brokers’ businesses with the latest innovations in service, technology, marketing, tools, training and business consulting.”Sherry Chris, CEO

National Brand Website

With the vast majority of consumers beginning their home search online, it is more important than ever to have a strong web presence. Our innovative brand website provides potential homebuyers with everything they need in one place; the ability to search every listing in a market, access to ample and insightful data about the listings and the community they are researching, and a flexible way to search. It’s not just the same old search by price and number of bedrooms and bathrooms, offers the ability to search by commute times, city and neighborhood information. Lifestyle information such as entertainment, public transportation, school ratings and more can also be factored into the search.

In addition, consumers have the ability to search by office or agent. Agent pages prominently display their current listings, awards, and Zillow reviews – a fantastic way to leverage third-party endorsements.

To make our agents’ lives easier, we provide an auto-generated single property page for every listing and a virtual tour, all at no charge.

The website was built to be mobile-responsive, so consumers can access all the information they need, wherever and whenever they need it, whether they are on their mobile device, iPad or laptop.

We also offer a national lead strategy that includes driving traffic to our site through paid search and SEO efforts. Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate also provides all of our affiliated real estate professionals with featured listings on Zillow that precludes any other agent from appearing on the listing.

The tool makes it easy to identify prospects who are likely to be in the market to buy or sell a home, such as first-time homebuyers, luxury homebuyers, empty nesters and many other profiles.

For a small fee, our agents can sign their customers up for a monthly subscription to Better Homes and Gardens magazine with a customized label, complete with their headshot and personalized message.
