Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Canada launches 11 offices in
Alberta & Saskatchewan
MOOSE JAW, SK, Jan. 18, 2012 /CNW/ - Today, Better Homes and Gardens
Real Estate Canada (BHGREC), Canada's premier real estate brokerage,
announced its continued expansion into Canada with the launch of 11
offices spread throughout Alberta and Saskatchewan. The brokerage added
seven Alberta-based and four Saskatchewan-based Signature Service Real
Estate offices to the brand, representing BHGREC's commitment to
provide more Canadians with a full service offering when buying and
selling their home.
"The opportunity for growth in Western Canada is tremendous. Local
economies are robust and the Western Canadian market is ready for a
real estate brand that understands the importance of lifestyle and that
it's unique for everyone," Rob Vanden Broek, president, Better Homes
and Gardens Real Estate Canada. "We're delighted to add Signature
Service Real Estate to our expanding presence in Canada, and building
on the success of our collective networks to service communities in
Saskatchewan and Alberta."
The four offices of Signature Service Real Estate in Saskatchewan
include Moose Jaw, Weyburn, Swift Current, and North Battleford and the
seven offices in Alberta include Coaldale, Taber, Hanna, Medicine Hat,
Wainwright, Lloydminster and Bow Island (hometown of Vanden Broek). All
offices will now be under the banner of Better Homes and Gardens Real
Estate Signature Service.
"The Western Canadian real estate landscape has so much potential in its
diversity," said Nelson Goulart, vice president of network services,
Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Canada. "We are capitalizing on
the strong network of urban and rural markets which Signature Service
Real Estate has created. We are excited to service Canadians with a
more robust offering in these Alberta and Saskatchewan markets under
the Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate brand."
BHGREC employs online and social media tools to enhance the customer
experience and further involve customers in the purchase or selling of
their home. The BHGRE network is growing aggressively since its recent
launch in Canada last October in Ontario.
"The sky's the limit here in Canada and we're thrilled that the Better
Homes and Gardens Real Estate brand is already thriving since its
launch in Canada last October," said Sherry Chris, president and global
CEO of Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate LLC. "Canada's real estate
market provides fertile ground for our brand to continue making its
mark, especially in Western Canada. The continued expansion of the
brand further exemplifies BHGRE's number one focus - our customers."
A similar event was held in Medicine Hat, AB yesterday to announce
BHGRE's Western Canada expansion to the province.
