MADISON, N.J. (June 24, 2024) – Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Fruit & Wine located in Palisade, CO., is the latest firm to join the lifestyle real estate brand. Celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, the boutique family brokerage works with clients on farm, luxury, residential, commercial and land transactions throughout the Grand Valley and Mesa County.

Broker/owner Tammy Craig established the company in 2004. Prior to her real estate career, she was a successful restaurant owner and worked as a tech support educator. The company’s extended leadership team includes Tammy’s son Thomas Craig, who will eventually take the helm of the company.

Tammy and her team have fostered a family-like atmosphere within the office where they treat every client as an extension of their family and prioritize quality over quantity. Everyone shares a firm belief that money comes secondary and is a byproduct of community-driven, above-and-beyond service.

Based in Palisade, the company serves the Grand Valley, a 30-mile-long area located along the Colorado River. Palisade is a major fruit-growing region with many orchards and vineyards – hence the company’s name. The riverside town of Palisade offers scenic views, a wealth of outdoor recreation, and a vibrant downtown scene full of shops and art galleries, including one owned by Tammy.

“Throughout my 20 years in real estate, I’ve always relied on a “little engine that could” approach. I value our identity as a small, family-run business that won’t shy away from outworking the competition to provide a more personalized experience than anyone else. With that being said, I also recognize that the industry is evolving. Our philosophy hasn’t changed, but the tools at our disposal need to. In order to provide our community with the real estate services they deserve, it means teaming up with a brand that has a more robust suite of services for us to tap into and aligns with our strong company values. We’re proud to say that as a new Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate company we will be the same, but “better.”

 - Tammy Craig, Owner/Broker, Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Fruit & Wine

“Real estate is a people-driven, family-focused industry. Every person has their own unique set of needs and it’s up to us to go above and beyond in our quest to address them. No matter the need, whether big or small, we’re humble enough to help you figure it out. I credit this mindset, along with my mother’s advice, as to why I’ve been able to thrive in this industry so far and why I want to continue to do so going forward. I love meeting and helping people and every person at this brokerage has become an extension of my family. Now, I want to help that family grow even larger and touch the lives of more people than we ever have before with the added support of Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate.”
