January 11, 2017 // // CRANFORD, N.J. and MADISON, N.J. - Better Homes and Gardens® Real Estate announced today the addition of Synergy Real Estate Group in Cranford, New Jersey, to its franchise network. The newly named Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Elite, led by broker/owner Christian Cobo, will continue to serve its core areas of Union, Essex, Bergen and Middlesex Counties.

Historic Cranford specifically has been experiencing strong economic growth and business development in the last few years.

He is especially adept at working with first-time homebuyers and investors, and was named to the NJ Realtors® Circle of Excellence Award for 2017, 2015 and 2014.
