Renting Your Home with Rand Realty

Thank you for giving us the opportunity to work with you on the rental of your new home. We look forward to providing you with the services that have made Better Homes and Gardens Rand Realty one of the largest real estate companies in the country and the leading brokerage in the region.

When you rent your home, you don’t have to choose between the resources of a big company and the local expertise of a small neighborhood broker. Better Homes and Gardens Rand Realty gives you the best of both worlds: a world-class real estate company that is one of the largest in the country and recognized as industry innovator, and a family-owned local business run by people who grew up here, live here, and are deeply committed to the communities of Westchester and the Hudson Valley.

Each of our 25 offices functions as a neighborhood “boutique” broker, with its own manager directing operations and a group of local agents who live in, work in, and know our communities:

  • Local Expertise. We know the nuances of our local markets better than anyone else: we know the schools, housing styles, history, local regulations, and anything else that can help smooth your transaction.
  • A Local Business. Just as you probably like to patronize locally-owned restaurants, shops, and other businesses, working with Better Homes and Gardens Rand Realty gives you the opportunity to support a local, family-owned company.
  • Commitment to Communities. The Rand owners have long been supporters of local charities, foundations, and community organizations, taking leadership positions in organizations such as Hospice, People to People, the regional Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, and the regional American Red Cross. And the hundreds of Better Homes and Gardens Rand Realty agents and employees support and contribute to myriad local causes throughout the region.
