Stroudsburg – Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Corporate in Madison, NJ gave the “green light” to Thomas R. Wilkins to open a Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate office in Milford, PA. Scheduled opening, contingent upon the Real Estate Commission approving the office, is slated for early March 2014.
Said Thomas R. Wilkins, CEO, “We operated in Dingmans Ferry and Milford during the height of the housing market and did quite well. Only because of the downturn in the Pocono real estate market did we have to vacate those offices. To be going back into the Milford/Lake Wallenpaupack and Pike County arena is extremely exciting for all of us.”
The office, located at The Upper Mill complex, a popular and historic landmark, will be boutique in nature offering our Realtors the best in internet marketing, online advertising and the latest in lead generating software–LeadRouter.
Said Wilkins, “The Historic Water Wheel property is an ideal location for an office. Currently the suite is under renovation and when completed will have an Adirondack style theme. The Agents will have the latest in technology to assist them in helping buyers and sellers.”
In addition to the Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate office, this space will also be shared by Pennsylvania First Settlement Services and NEPA Management Associates as well as their sister company, Wilkins & Associates—PROPERTY MANAGEMENT. It is Wilkins’ intent to offer his complete menu of services from The Upper Mill complex. Wilkins will handle vacation rentals including weekend, weekly, seasonal and Corporate rentals.
Wilkins further stated, “By offering other professional services that our company excels in, such as title/settlement services, property or community management and maintenance, it will make our Milford location a true success. We didn’t offer our other services previously, but this time we will accent those accessory services.”
The Wilkins organization is best known for their Independent Family of Home Buying Services which offers buyers, sellers and renters “one stop shopping” when they need to rent, buy or sell their home. On the Management side, Wilkins offers a full array of professional services from collecting rent or past dues, depositing those funds and monthly reporting of the Income and Expense to the Owner, partners or Board of Directors. On the Administrative side, they use the best and latest software for the specific purpose they are hired for. In Community Management, they use TOPS and for residential and commercial investment properties, Rent Manager.
The office is expected to be open Thursday through Sunday in the springtime and open 7 days a week beginning the summer season.
