Executive Partners becomes Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate franchise

  • Follow Local Business

A local real estate brokerage has become a Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate franchise.

Executive Partners, with offices in Martinez, south Augusta and Aiken, started operating as Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Executive Partners last week, said owner Tommy Stephenson.

The company was successful as Executive Partners, but Stephenson said he decided to become affiliated with Better Homes and Gardens to give the company “more of a national brand.” It operated as Executive Partners for five years.

“We were independent, and we decided to franchise,” Stephenson said. “Getting the Better Homes and Gardens name was more of a move to gain some national recognition. It gave us some presence to people coming in from the outside.”

In 2006, Executive Partners had $12 million in gross sales.

In 2011, it reached $230 million in gross sales, he said.

“When most of the real estate companies are going down, we’ve gone up extremely well,” Stephenson said.

His brokerage has 115 agents in its three offices.
