MADISON, N.J. (Jan. 11, 2024) – Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Service First, a leader in Central Illinois Real Estate for almost a decade, has announced its new affiliation with the Better Homes and Gardens® Real Estate brand. The firm is owned by Tim Vieweg, a lifelong Central Illinois resident who first entered the real estate industry 40 years ago.

The company, based in Decatur, Illinois., assists the communities of Macon County with a wide variety of real estate services, including commercial and residential properties, luxury homes and land sales.

Vieweg started the firm nearly a decade ago and has since become a top producer in the area. His first experience in real estate was as a part-time investor before he dedicated himself full-time to the industry and established a reputation as a local commercial real estate expert. Not only does his lifetime of experience in Central Illinois bring a wealth of local market knowledge, but his success in the commercial industry also allows the firm to assist clients ranging from large businesses to individual first-time buyers.

Over the past nine years, Vieweg and his affiliated agents have trended ahead of the market thanks to their meticulous work ethic, everyday commitment to the consumer and reliability in every client relationship. They believe that “full service” is more than just a catchphrase – it’s a promise to provide the best experience possible.

Decatur is located in the heart of Illinois, roughly three hours from both Indianapolis and Chicago. Residents describe the city as a “big small town” that offers the draws of both urban and suburban living at an affordable price. As the largest city in Macon County, Decatur has several communities and local attractions for potential residents to choose from. The West End is located in Decatur’s Historic District with a classic architectural style and access to bike trails and other outdoor activities. South Shores has some of the most beautiful lakefront properties in the region with excellent education opportunities.

“Tim and his affiliated agents are trendsetters who are bringing their ambition and extensive knowledge to the Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate brand. Their company provides a well-established reputation in the area and an attitude that inspires future growth and makes them stand out in a smaller market. We know that Tim has carefully curated an office with some of the best agents in Macon County, and we’re excited to lend his brokerage additional brand recognition, professional development support and marketing services to attract even more local talent.”

 - Ginger Wilcox, President, Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate LLC

“One of the biggest things that sets us apart is our ability to keep up with the evolving real estate market, but it requires a great deal of effort to achieve. This is where we know we stand to benefit by affiliating with a widely known and respected brand in the industry like Better Homes and Gardens® Real Estate. The brand will not only provide us with enhanced tools and services, but it will also streamline our back-end operations and allow us to spend more time on what really matters – taking care of our clients. With this extra bandwidth, we know that Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate is our key to catapulting growth and becoming the number one option in Central Illinois.”
