Real estate industry is the backbone of the US economy; the events that accompanied the real estate collapse from 2007 to 2013 were a vivid demonstration of the effect of the real estate on a multitude of industries. Active real estate markets keep the factories and the economic engines humming both at home and abroad.

In the next few years, we will not recognize the real estate industry as we know it today. The changes can be dramatic, but very exciting as well. Have you considered how the changes will affect you?
Are you an experienced real estate professional?
Are you a newly licensed real estate professional?
Are you considering changing career to real estate?

No matter what your situation is, to conduct real estate brokerage activities you must be licensed by the state where you are or will be practicing real estate. In addition, you must be affiliated with a real estate brokerage company.

Selecting the company that can best serve your needs is an important decision.
Our focus is ALL about YOU & YOUR SUCCESS 100% of the Time!

Through our affiliation with Northern Virginia Real Estate University (NVRE University) we provide an excellent curriculum for a wide variety of classes; pre-licensing, post licensing, continuing education, and others. The classes are delivered both in a classroom setting and online. NVRE University maintains an excellent and an unmatched pass rate of the PSI exam from the first attempt.

The BHGRE® Story

Better Homes and Gardens® Real Estate is a real estate brand with a fresh outlook that offers a full range of services to brokers, sales associates and home buyers and sellers. With innovative technology, sophisticated business systems and the broad appeal of a lifestyle brand, Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate has its eyes set on the future of the real estate industry, while not forgetting its roots in the tradition of home.


In 1978, Meredith Corporation, one of the nation’s leading media and marketing companies and publisher of Better Homes and Gardens magazine, launched the former Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Service. Meredith Corporation owned and operated the company for 20 years and grew the business into a highly respected name in the real estate industry. Meredith Corporation sold its real estate business in 1998, but retained long-term ownership of the Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate brand name. Then, in October 2007, Realogy announced a new, long-term agreement to license the Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate brand from Meredith Corporation. Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate officially launched its new franchise system on July 23, 2008.
