Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Brings Home to Office in New Location, ‘Kitchen’ Becomes Hearth of High-end Deal Talks

1 min read

After a year of taking the office to home due to Covid-19 related restrictions, there is one real estate company that decided to bring them home to the office in its new office space.

Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate MCR Bahamas is an environmentally conscious, green company that has decided to merge their brand with modern elegance to demonstrate who they are. The company’s affiliation with the Better Homes and Gardens Magazine inspired them to elevate their new office at One West Plaza, Windsor Field Road, including conversational seating areas, a floating wood staircase, and waterfall edge butcher block countertops.

“The idea was to design the office around the kitchen, that would be open and welcoming. In the home, a lot of conversations happen around the kitchen, so we wanted to bring that feel into this office, but also if we needed a more formal place to meet, we have spaces for that as well,” says Managing Partner, Tim Rodland. “We wanted to change the way people think about real estate but also create a fun and enjoyable space for our clients, staff and agents.”

Relocating to an empty space gave Rodland and the team the amazing opportunity to build from the ground up, from the inside out.

“Tim Rodland told me he had an idea and we ran with it, it turned out even better than I imagined, which is ironic because ‘Expect Better’ is our motto so I should have expected the very best. It is a great space, the agents love it, support staff, clients, everyone is eager to come into the office and none eager to leave,” said company founder, Mario Carey.

The upstairs mezzanine houses agents’ offices and a comfortable conversational area with neutral tones on upholstered chairs. Downstairs, 12-foot tall white custom-built cabinets are separated by counters and shelving and a grass wall serves as a backdrop for the main logo.

“We wanted to demonstrate who we are as a brand, and this office allowed us to do just that,” says partner, Timothy Smith. “The living green walls, natural wood tones, green palm trees, the flooring, it is all meant to show what Better Homes and Gardens is about.”

Their brand, mixed with a group of trusted agents who hold themselves to a very high level of integrity, allows them to build the relationships that they cherish within the community. “We focus on People, full stop!” says Smith. Being a part of an internationally recognized brand puts the company at a strategic advantage with top-tier marketing locally and internationally, giving them access to a large database of brand-loyal clients throughout the Better Homes and Gardens network. They lead by example, always thinking ahead, and couldn’t be more proud of what they have created.

The firm relocated from its former location on West Bay Street in July.
