The BHG Independent Family of Homes Buying Services was started by the Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Management team.  Included in the Independent Family are an alliance of insurance companies, title services, lenders and a warranty company that collectively work with the Better Homes and Gardens buyer.  Said Thomas R. Wilkins, CEO, “For arguments sake, we offer one-stop-shopping, but in typical Wilkins fashion, we’ve taken it to the next level.  It’s not a loosely run alliance of partners, instead, it’s a well-oiled machine that allows our buyers to get the best mortgage rates, the best in settlement services and free quotes on homeowners insurance.  It’s been in effect since 1998 and it’s only gotten better and better throughout the years.”  Wilkins is in the process of reinstituting moving services as well with discounts on storage and Mayflower moving services which benefits sellers as well as buyers.

Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Wilkins & Associates have 4 locations throughout the Poconos and all offices are open 7 days a week.  Visit them online at
