About Us

Why start another real estate company?

In tough economic times, we saw a need for a real estate company to be both flexible and attuned to the diverse needs of our clients. We need to be BETTER!

Better communication, better results, better rate of service!

Our logo features the image of Ollie, the wise owl, whose wings form a heart which encircles the home. This image represents the protection we offer our clients in all of their home selling and buying needs.

Our independent sales associates come to you to help take the mystery and stress out of the buying or selling decision.

We believe there is no better time for Better Rate Realty!
