LUCEDALE, Miss., and MADISON, N.J. (Feb. 23, 2017) – Better Homes and Gardens® Real Estate continues to add to its growing franchise network and welcomes the newest addition of Wright Realty, located in Lucedale, Mississippi. The newly named Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Traditions will remain under the leadership of owners Walter and Tina Wright, who have overseen the company’s consistent growth since its launch in 2013. The brokerage will continue to serve the Jackson, George and Greene Counties with a focus on Ocean Springs, Pascagoula, Vancleave, Gautier and Moss Point and plans to expand along the coast.
“Walter Wright and his team’s forward-thinking approach to real estate and ongoing commitment to creating meaningful relationships with both their customers and the community at large makes them the perfect fit for the Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate network,” said Sherry Chris, president and CEO, Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate LLC. “We are thrilled to have them on board and look forward to expanding our presence into southern Mississippi, an area that’s growing rapidly due to ample employment opportunities, desirable location and lifestyle amenities suitable for millennials, families and retirees.”
Southern Mississippi is a burgeoning market as Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Traditions saw a significant growth in business in 2016 through its work with first-time developers and families relocating to the area. The brokerage continues to see increasing consumer interest in the market and hopes to grow the area with a potential new office to better serve the coastal community.
“We are truly excited to join a real estate brand that embodies everything we stand for professionally and personally, from their company culture and core values to their innovative approach to real estate,” said Walter Wright. “My father always says ‘To win a race you don’t have to be first in every lap, but first on the last lap.’ We want to be in the best shape possible to keep riding this wave of growth and we know that this partnership will take us there.”
The brokerage actively supports many local charitable activities such as Relay for Life, hosting fundraisers for local law enforcement and first responders, and helping with the creation of The Report Card Incentive Program, which recognizes the achievements of students and encourages success through good grades.
