About US

Better Properties was formed through a partnership in 2018 with the intent to combine finance and construction knowledge to build a residential rental portfolio. The group is all employee-owned and seeks to offer better housing options to its tenants.

Better Realty was established to provide property management services to Better Properties and third parties. Having been impressed by them in previous transactions, Kiara Fuller and Herbert Tatum were brought onboard to lead the company and establish it as a full-service real estate agency headquartered in Durham, NC.

Better Construction is led by Mark Garrett who successfully ran his own construction company, Production Construction Inc., for over 15 years. The company focused on providing renovations, new construction, and repairs over that time to many happy homeowners. Today, the company builds, renovates, and maintains homes owned by Better Properties and its clients.
