HOUSTON & TULSA, Okla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices today announced that Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Anderson Properties acquired Prudential Alliance Realty, an eight-office, 150-agent brokerage operating in Tulsa and Oklahoma City, OK. The transaction gives Anderson Properties, one of the region’s fastest-growing brokerages, a total of 38 offices and more than 600 agents.
“We are excited to add Alliance Realty and its terrific agents to our team,” said Anderson Properties Broker/Owner Michael Huff. “This company is well run and well respected in Oklahoma. It’s an important component of our strategic growth plan.”
Alliance Realty, a perennial Top-50 company in the Prudential Real Estate network, is led by Sheldon Detrick. The company is known throughout its marketplace for quality service and sound guidance. “We have long respected the business that Sheldon has built and, with Sheldon, we decided this was a perfect time to combine forces,” Huff said.
Detrick, who will remain with the Anderson Properties organization, said Anderson Properties is an ideal fit for his company. “I’ve been considering a change in role for myself for some time, but it wasn’t until I met the people at Anderson Properties that I felt comfortable making such a transition,” he explained. “I love my company and agents and had to be absolutely sure new ownership would help the company grow.”
Rick Young, Anderson Properties chief operating officer, said growth is on the horizon in Oklahoma and in Texas, where the brokerage operates in Houston, Austin, Lubbock and surrounding markets. “There is a natural synergy between the Texas and Oklahoma real estate markets, and we see nothing but positives from this combination,” he said. “Anderson Properties is a dynamic, growing company and it only makes sense that we have locations where we see the best growth opportunities.”
