Your Dream Home is a Click Away!

Buy easier

You need a partner who knows the neighborhoods, the market and the process. Who can advise you when to think on it, sleep on it or go all in on it. Because this is about much more than bricks and sticks. This is about your future home. And you don't want to live with it. You want to love it.

Sell faster

When it comes to selling, you want an agent who knows the market, knows your home inside and out, and knows how to price it correctly for this specific time in the marketplace. You don't want your home to sit on the market forever, but you also should NEVER leave money on the table. Lean on BHG Service First to find that sweet spot!

My husband and I just started actively looking for a new home. We found a few we were interested in seeing and they were the only realtor that answered our email, and the houses weren’t even listed by them!!! The BHG team is so kind and helpful and they go that extra mile in finding or selling houses!!

I have found the staff at Better Homes & Gardens to do an outstanding job meeting customer needs. They have agents who are able to contact you quickly and assist you with your home purchase. They have recently expanded their staff and I would highly recommend them if you are interested in buying or selling a house.

My wife and I were in the process of transferring due to my job and tried another realtor prior to Tim Vieweg, without any results. We found Tim to be knowledgeable, responsive, and informative and got our house sold promptly and at our expected selling price. We chose Tim due to his commitment to the Decatur area and his devotion to real estate. This is his life and not a job!! Thank you again, Tim!
