Quotes: 

“Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Corridor brings more than 10 years of experience in the dynamic Cedar Rapids, Iowa, market – an important hub in the American heartland. This dynamic and growing area, dubbed ‘Silicon Prairie’ thanks to a booming tech startup scene and academic institutions like the nearby University of Iowa, is a draw for talent from around the country. We look forward to helping Alissa Gardner expand her business in this revitalized community.”
– Sherry Chris, President and CEO, Better Homes and Gardens® Real Estate

“People do business with us because we have a big heart as well as a high standard of professionalism – ideals we recognized in Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate’s core values. In so many cases, the real estate industry is only relevant to the consumer every seven years or so when it’s time to sell a house. BHGRE differs in that the brand is interwoven into the consumer’s daily life. That connection will enable us to seamlessly grow and better communicate our ongoing commitment to the Cedar Rapids community.”
– Alissa Gardner, Broker/Owner, Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Corridor
