May 9, 2017

CROFTON, Md. and MADISON, N.J. (May 9, 2017) – Better Homes and Gardens® Real Estate announced today the addition of Apex Realty LLC in Crofton, Maryland, to its franchise network. The newly named Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Live Well Group, led by broker Bryan Gleason and co-owners Jeff Caruso and Mark Somerville, will continue to serve Crofton in addition to the counties of Anne Arundel and Prince George.

“We are thrilled to expand our presence in Maryland and are confident that everyone at Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Live Well Group will be invaluable partners,” said Sherry Chris, president and CEO, Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate LLC. “Their expertise in real estate and development, paired with their extensive knowledge of the Crofton, Maryland market gives them a competitive edge in this thriving location.”

The Apex Realty management team has over 60 years of combined experience in almost every aspect of real estate including home sales, building and development of properties. In its first three years of business, Apex Realty has seen steady growth, but, under the Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate name, the company is poised to further expand and better serve their clients.

“The highly respected and recognized Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate name sets us up for future success,” said Gleason. “This new partnership also gives us access to the brands’ innovative tools and technology to provide our customers with the best service available, which is always our No. 1 priority.”

Crofton is situated between urban, suburban and rural areas with easy access to The Chesapeake Bay, beaches, large airports, renowned universities and excellent public school systems. As such, it attracts a diverse set of buyers. Caruso and Gleason have seen an influx of millennials and growing families leaving nearby cities looking to purchase homes there.
