SHAWNEE, Okla. & TECUMSEH, Okla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Benchmark Realty agents today get their hands on the Global Network Platform, a powerful suite of real estate tools and resources offered by their new brand Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices.
The operating platform includes enhanced lead generation, Marketing REsource customer-contact and marketing support system, a supercharged customer relationship management system, a handy mobile app and other tools driven by the cleanest and most accurate real estate information available. And consumers will appreciate the home-search tool available on the brokerage’s new website, www.bhhsbenchmark.com.
“Everyone is excited at Benchmark Realty,” said Pamela O’Rorke, president and CEO. “It’s like being handed the keys to a hot, new sports car. We’re ready to turn the key and go.”
Benchmark Realty launched last month when longtime real estate leaders Prudential Carolyn Harris Realty and Branson McKiddy Real Estate combined, and then joined the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices brokerage network. The network, inspired by Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Inc., has grown rapidly since its September 2013 start to more than 33,300 agents and 1,014 offices in 47 states.
Benchmark Realty is the network’s first Oklahoma-based brokerage. “We’re proud of that fact,” Broker/Owner Terry O’Rorke said. “We’re also confident the brand will help us grow our business and continue recruiting top agents.”
The Global Network Platform should help as well. “GNP supports agents through the stages of prospecting, sales and follow-up,” Pamela O’Rorke said. “The tools are fast and efficient, and will help us provide even better client service.”
LearnCenter REsource, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices’ robust education portal, and the Commercial REsource support platform for commercial agents, round out the tool suite.
“Technology is a cornerstone to Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices’ value proposition,” Pamela O’Rorke said. “It’s one more reason beyond our great brand why the future looks so bright for our brokerage, agents and clients.”
