HUNTSVILLE, Ala.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, part of the HSF Affiliates LLC family of real estate brokerage franchise networks, announced that independent real estate brokerage Rise Real Estate, Inc. is now operating as Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Rise Real Estate.
“The amount of positive support and feedback from our community and business partners on this transition has been astounding,” said Broker/Owner Tommy Adams. “We knew aligning with the respected Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices brand was the best move for our brokerage and agents, and we could not be more excited to be on this winning team.”
Rise Real Estate, founded in 1983, is among North Alabama’s largest real estate companies and is a perennial market leader in the greater Huntsville area and throughout Madison County. Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices is America’s fastest-growing real estate brokerage network with more than 42,500 agents and 1,270 offices admitted to the brand since its founding in September 2013.
“This is a monumental moment for our business,” said Associate Broker Anne Adams-Bourque. “The Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices name is no stranger to the North Alabama marketplace and we are eager to take the reins and elevate our foothold in the marketplace.”
With their transition, Rise Real Estate agents gain access to Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices’ Global Network Platform, a powerful tool suite focusing on lead generation, marketing support, social media, video production/distribution and more. Beyond technology, the brand provides national and international marketing support, professional education and the exclusive Luxury Collection for high-end listings.
“Technology is a key differentiator and we’re providing our agents with what we feel is the finest tool suite in real estate,” said Broker/Owner Jimmie Adams. “The Global Network Platform and its components help agents operate with great efficiency. That means even better service for Rise Real Estate clients.”
Rise Real Estate will host a launch event today at The Ledges (32 Castle Down Drive, Huntsville) from 5-7 p.m. to celebrate its transition. Company agents, business alliances and members of the Chamber of Commerce of Huntsville/Madison County will attend.
