betaine-homocysteine S-methyltransferase activity

Known as: betaine-homocysteine methyltransferase activity, betaine-homocysteine transmethylase activity, trimethylammonioacetate:L-homocysteine S-methyltransferase activity 
Catalysis of the reaction: L-homocysteine + betaine = N,N-dimethylglycine + L-methionine. [EC:2.1.1.5, RHEA:22339]
