Changing lives through commitment, honesty and integrity.


Better Life Properties is a family-owned real estate solutions company, comprised of three divisions. Our lost mitigation division works to keep people in their homes, a service we do for free. Our retail sales division buys, renovates and sells quality properties at all price points. And our third division is a turnkey rental program, where a passive investor can own cash-flowing real estate by doing nothing more than cashing their checks each month.

Better Life Properties was founded on the principal that is held in its name. We create a better life for people. Whether you're an investor, a tenant, or buying or selling a home, we will always strive to provide the best experience possible. Other words we live by: Integrity, honesty, commitment and respect. Every day. For every client.

We feel at the end of the day you are only as good as your word, and at Better Life Properties we give you our word that we will strive for nothing less than excellence. And we are confident that we can help you with your real estate needs.
