THOUSAND OAKS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, the real estate brokerage network operated by HSF Affiliates LLC, today announced that Prudential California Realty will join the network July 1 operating as Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Realty.

It is the next in a growing roster of affiliates that have joined Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices since September. The network now counts over 29,000 agents and 825 offices operating in 42 states.
