Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Enters Pennsylvania’s Capital with Addition of Newest Brokerage Affiliate

     Better Homes and Gardens® Real Estate announced today the addition of real estate company Capital Area in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, to its franchise network. The newly named Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Capital Area, led by broker/owner Cindy Armour-Helm and associate broker/manager Kevin Helm, will continue to serve the central Pennsylvania communities in Dauphin and Cumberland counties.
     “Cindy Armour-Helm, Kevin Helm and their team operate much like a family – from their unwavering core values, to their support of one another inside and out of the office,” said Sherry Chris, president and CEO, Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate LLC. “We’re thrilled to be working together to serve this historic, waterfront capital, as we continue to expand our network’s footprint in the heart of Pennsylvania’s capital.”
     Founded in 2003, Capital Area prides itself on being a family-owned and operated company with uncompromising core values of honesty and ethics. With more than 25 years in local real estate, the husband-and-wife team attributes the majority of their business to returning clients and referrals – a testament to their staunch principles of transparency, communication and integrity when serving clients. With an office in the capital city of Harrisburg, the team at Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Capital Area is strategically and geographically positioned to expand into surrounding communities.
     “This franchise affiliation is like a breath of fresh air,” said Armour-Helm. “Not only does Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate have an incredible leadership team to help steer us into the next generation, they also offer access to unparalleled technology, education and resources to further equip our affiliated real estate professionals. When it comes down to it, our team is simply excited to be our best.”
     “This iconic Better Homes and Gardens brand and the philosophy on which it was built aligns perfectly with our brokerage’s family-oriented environment,” added Helm. “Simply put, the trusted name and the offerings Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate provides our business are what we need to take us to the next level. There’s a feeling of renewed enthusiasm in the office, and it’s only going to spread like wildfire.”
     The company is regularly involved in the local community through several philanthropic initiatives. During last year’s holiday season, the team organized a major toy drive for children at Downey Elementary, and also fulfilled the wish lists of several families through the Adopt-a-Family holiday program.
