SAN ANTONIO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, the real estate brokerage network operated by HSF Affiliates LLC, today announced that Prudential Don Johnson Co., REALTORS® has joined the network and is operating as Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Don Johnson, REALTORS®.
The brokerage, which is independently owned and operated, joins a Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices network that has grown to nearly 32,000 agents and 949 offices in 46 states since its launch last September. “We are so excited to join a brand inspired by Berkshire Hathaway Inc., one of the world’s most trusted and respected corporations,” said Bernie Johnson, broker/owner of Don Johnson, REALTORS®.
The transition to Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices comes at important time for the brokerage.

The new address will be 1171 Gruene Road, Suite 101, New Braunfels. “We were very fortunate to acquire the last commercial lot on the river bluff, neighboring historic downtown Gruene,” said Johnson. “I can’t imagine a better office location and I can’t imagine a better brand to join.”
Additionally, Don Johnson, REALTORS® agents gain access to Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices’ Global Network Platform – including advanced lead generation, e-marketing support, mobile application and commercial resources – plus professional education, business consultation and the exclusive Luxury Collection program for high-end listings.
“Our agents look forward to the marketing potential of a brand with state-of-the-art technology integrated into the platform,” said Broker Associate/Manager Dianne Thomas. “Likewise, clients will have an immense opportunity to showcase their properties and consumers will be able to more effectively find their dream home.”
The brokerage, its agents, staff and local dignitaries will commemorate the transition with a reception Aug. 6 at the Vineyard at Gruene. Don Johnson, REALTORS®’ new cabernet and white yard signs will begin appearing throughout greater San Antonio starting today.
