Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate LLC announced today the affiliation of Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Properties Unlimited based in Rancho Cucamonga, Calif. 

The firm is led by Daniel and Heidi Burns, who first opened their brokerage in 1980.  The company serves a wide range of first-time, move-up, relocation and downsizing clients across California’s San Bernardino and Riverside Counties from the High Desert to Temecula.


Located within commuting distance to Los Angeles, Rancho Cucamonga offers housing at a more moderate price point than the surrounding cities and a small-town environment. The area is centrally located between the beach and mountains, with access to many outdoor pursuits as well as cultural offerings and sporting events in nearby Los Angeles, Pasadena, San Diego, Palm Springs and Las Vegas.

Rancho Cucamonga is a very competitive location for the manufacturing, warehousing and logistics industries because of its easy access to transportation facilities and ports of entry. Healthcare and higher education are also major economic drivers across San Bernardino and Riverside Counties. 


  • Daniel and Heidi will leverage the firm’s enhanced value proposition and the BHGRE brand’s high profile to recruit new agents to the firm. 
  • The training and professional development programs in Be Better® University, the brand’s proven professional development and award-winning training platform, will support increased agent productivity.
  • The team will gain a competitive advantage in the market by 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. 
  • Daniel and Heidi have been active in their state and local REALTOR® associations. Daniel, a former Navy pilot, served as CAR Director and President of the Inland Empire West Association of REALTORS®. Heidi has served on and chaired the CAR Ethics Committee. 
  • Daniel and Heidi are passionate about giving back to the community and are involved in many charitable activities that range from education to food insecurity. Dedicated to their local community’s needs, Daniel serves as Secretary for the West End Real Estate Professionals, a 501(c)(3) organization, while Heidi is an active board member of the West End YMCA and has served as Chair of the Board of Directors.
  • reports that the median sales price for a home in San Bernardino County is $465,000 and the median sales price in Riverside County is $540,000. The firm’s average price range is $550,000 to $800,000. 
  • Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Properties Unlimited is the 25th BHGRE® affiliate in California. 


“Dan and Heidi have an impressive history and knowledge of the real estate industry. Their dedication to growth and providing top-notch agent and client support will be elevated to new heights through their affiliation with the BHGRE® brand. I applaud the passion and support they provide to their community and their involvement in many charitable organizations making a difference in their region. We are thrilled to welcome them to the Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate family and are excited to support their growth plans and continued success.”
