Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Expands Presence in Southeast with First Louisiana Franchise

MONROE, La. and MADISON, N.J. (April 5, 2017) – Better Homes and Gardens® Real Estate announced today the addition of Jack Fluck Realty in Monroe, Louisiana, to its franchise network. The company has rebranded and will now do business as Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Veranda Realty while remaining under the leadership of owners Johnny Wade and Wayne Barnett. The brokerage is the first Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate franchise in the state and will serve the cities of Monroe, West Monroe, Calhoun and Sterlington.

 

“Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Veranda Realty’s strong heritage in the Monroe community makes them the perfect partner for our first franchise in Louisiana,” said Sherry Chris, president and CEO, Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate LLC. “We are thrilled to be expanding in a community that is seeing tremendous growth with a team that is committed to a forward-thinking approach to real estate.”

 

Monroe is a growing market with several new developments around the city and has seen an increase in buyers over the past few years. Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Veranda Realty has experienced steady growth and they look forward to further growing the business under their new affiliation with Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate.

 

“We’ve been an independent brokerage for more than 50 years and when we decided to transition, it was very important for us to find a company that was the right fit,” said Wade. “The Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate core business values really resonated with us and it was an easy decision to affiliate with a brand that has been a trusted resource for generations.”
