PARSIPPANY, N.J. and STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. - (Nov. 22, 2011) – Better Homes and Gardens® Real Estate today announced that its network has entered New York City with the addition of Safari Realty, a Staten Island-based brokerage owned by Fran and Frank Reali. The 23-year-old brokerage, comprised of more than 50 agents, will now do business as Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Safari Realty.

“The Realis and their team empower home buyers and counsel home sellers during every step of a real estate transaction," said Sherry Chris, president and CEO of Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate LLC. “Their commitment to their consumers and the surrounding community has earned them a fantastic reputation in the Staten Island area, and we are thrilled to have them join our brand’s growing network as our first New York City brokerage.”

Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Safari Realty is made up of an award-winning team of real estate professionals serving Staten Island and the New York metropolitan area. Through the brokers’ implementation of a unique integrated marketing strategy, including social media, high impact sponsorships, advertising and networking, they have helped their team reach or surpass their goals. The company will continue its mission to ensure that their passion, commitment, knowledge and dedication to customer service leads to an exceptional real estate experience.
