Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Continues Florida Expansion with Addition of Space Coast Brokerage

December 07, 2015 // // COCOA BEACH, Fla. and MADISON, N.J. - Better Homes and Gardens® Real Estate announced today the addition of real estate company, Star Real Estate, to its franchise network. The newly named Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Star, led by broker/owner Barbara Zorn, will continue to serve Brevard County and its surrounding communities.

“As we continue our expansion into the most active Florida real estate markets, we are thrilled to have Barbara Zorn and her incredibly driven team of real estate professionals join forces with our franchise,” said Sherry Chris, president and CEO, Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate LLC. “With a forward-thinking mindset and a company culture that aligns with our brand values, we are confident that Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Star will continue to craft a personalized experience for each person who walks through their doors.”

Zorn was born and raised on the Space Coast of Brevard County, and is consistently a top agent for number of units sold, according to Space Coast MLS data. Since its inception in 2003, the brokerage has become renowned for assisting clients with relocation – not just in helping people new to the area find homes, but making sure they find the home that maximizes their preferred lifestyle. The team often works with large companies in their relocation efforts and excels in dealing with the most coveted waterfront properties in Brevard County. Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Star professionals are committed to fast, professional and courteous personal service to ease clients throughout the home buying and selling processes.

“Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate is the perfect brand to bring our company to a new era of growth,” said Zorn. “With its technological resources and lifestyle platform, we will enhance our reputation for providing an exceptional level of service. Our team is eager to leverage the many marketing and technological tools that will now be available to them as part of this iconic, trusted brand.”

Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Star is also involved philanthropically in the area that it serves. More specifically, it is deeply connected to Promise in Brevard, a new community development being built for young adults with special needs, and its real estate professionals are active fundraisers for the Special Olympics.
