BETTER HOMES AND GARDENS® REAL ESTATE ANNOUNCES AFFILIATION OF LONG ISLAND BROKERAGE



 Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate LLC announced today that the former EXIT Realty Dreams, based in Massapequa, N.Y., has affiliated with the BHGRE® brand. The company will now be known as Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Dream Properties. 

Founded in 2016, the boutique brokerage is led by Aret Kayserilioglu and Fred Bollinger, both experienced and accomplished entrepreneurs in various industries including restaurant, retail and real estate. Aret and Fred met during their first year in the real estate industry, learning alongside each other and naturally formed a partnership. Leaning on their prior service industry experience and entrepreneurial mindset, they decided to open their own brokerage with a core focus of delivering superior customer service.

With more than 50 affiliated sales associates, the firm is headquartered at 620 Broadway in Massapequa, N.Y., and serves Southshore Nassau County as well as Suffolk County.

With nearly 8 million people, Long Island is the most populated island in the U.S. and comprises approximately 40 percent of New York state’s population. The region is well known for its cultural, ethnic and economic diversity, reflected within its residents and communities. 

The area attracts many medical professionals, with proximity to well-known hospitals including Good Samaritan Hospital, Nassau University Medical Center, Saint Joseph’s Medical Center, Long Island Jewish Medical Center and Stony Brook University Hospital and Medical Center. Educational opportunities are also in abundance, with a number of highly rated schools and universities located on Long Island. Medicine, education and civil services are key drivers of the economy and employment opportunities. 

Details:

  • Kayserilioglu and Bollinger look forward to benefitting from the highly recognizable and trusted BHGRE brand name, marketing programs and tools to help increase market share.
  • Access to the BHGRE brand’s award-winning learning and professional development platform will play a significant role in increasing agent productivity and attracting top talent to the firm.
  • The team will gain a competitive advantage in the market by using PinPointSM. This proprietary BHGRE brand tool taps into consumer behavior data from Better Homes & Gardens magazine and its publisher Meredith Corporation’s customer database of more than 175 million consumers to assist affiliated agents in effectively reaching potential buyers for specific properties. 
  • OneKey Multiple Listing Service reports that the median sales price for a home in Nassau County is $630,000, while the median home sales price for Suffolk County is $470,000. These record-high prices are up approximately 13 percent YOY.

Their affiliation with the BHGRE brand will help take their business to new heights, complementing their work ethic and commitment to helping their affiliated agents succeed at all levels.
