Gordon Miles, Americana Holdings president, said the brand transition launches new chapters in the brokerages’ storied history of growth, innovation and customer care. “We believe real estate consumers in greater Las Vegas and Phoenix will look for the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices yard sign as a symbol of sound guidance and quality service,” he said. “Top agents looking for a brand that is fresh, intelligent and respected should look no farther than this one.”

With the transition, associates at each brokerage gain access to Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices’ robust technology platform, ongoing business consultation, professional education, marketing support and the Luxury Collection program that adds marketing clout to high-end listings. “New technology and resources now available to us will help extend the reach and efficiency of our agents,” Miles explained. “This means even better service for our home-buying and selling clients.”

Earl Lee, CEO of HSF Affiliates, applauded the brokerages’ transition to Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices. “Mark Stark and Gordon Miles are exceptional leaders and their companies set the standard for quality in their respective markets,” he said. “Combined, Americana Holdings companies represented the No. 3 company in the entire Prudential Real Estate network in 2013, and we’re proud they’re representing Berkshire Hathaway HomServices.”
