August 14, 2015 // Franchising.com // BETHLEHEM, Pa. and MADISON, N.J. – Better Homes and Gardens® Real Estate announced today the addition of Eastern Pennsylvania-based real estate brokerage Cassidon Realty to its franchise network. The newly-named Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Cassidon Realty, led by president Jack Gross, will continue to serve Bethlehem, Whitehall, Easton, Allentown and Quakertown.
“Jack and his team of affiliated real estate professionals embrace a forward-thinking mindset and a yearning for innovation that makes them a perfect fit to grow with our brand,” said Sherry Chris, president and CEO, Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate LLC. “Cassidon Realty’s extensive local contacts, coupled with Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate’s tools and resources creates a well-rounded powerhouse that will further expand our presence in one of the fastest-growing regions in the state.”
Technological innovation is embedded in the company’s identity. In the 1990s, Gross was one of the first real estate agents in the country to make use of Internet marketing and Web-based document-sharing through self-taught HTML. Shortly thereafter, Gross was featured in Realtor Magazine as the no. 2 agent in the country, having successfully closed 724 units in 2000. Today, the decade-old brokerage continues to boast a wide array of specialties, specifically in new construction and resale, under Gross’s leadership.
“After exploring our options, it was obvious that Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate offers an ideal opportunity for us to grow and will best allow us to stay on top of the local and national market by providing unrivaled technology tools and assets, such as its exclusive intranet offerings and training modules,” said Gross. “I’m proud that we’re taking a bold step toward equipping our company for a future of continued success.”
A nod to Gross’ varied and veteran real estate background, Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Cassidon Realty cultivates a family dynamic, while offering the resources and branding power of a national brand. With offices in Bethlehem and Whitehall, the firm will continue to explore strategic expansion in the Lehigh Valley.
