HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, part of the HSF Affiliates LLC family of real estate brokerage franchise networks, today announced that Prudential Premier Properties has joined the network operating as Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Premier Properties.
The full-service real estate agency, founded in 1988, is now part of a brokerage network that has grown to 34,223 agents and 1,056 offices in 47 states since its launch in fall 2013.
“This is a defining moment for our brokerage,” said Premier Properties Broker Stacy Mathews. “The Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices brand carries the name of one of the world’s most trusted and respected corporations – Berkshire Hathaway Inc. We are proud to join the brand and represent all it stands for.”
Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices reflects Berkshire Hathaway’s core values – trust, integrity, stability and longevity – and is embraced by consumers and business peers. The brand was named 2014 “Real Estate Agency Brand of the Year” by consumers in the 26th annual Harris Poll EquiTrend® study and “Startup of the Year” among all U.S. industries at the 2014 American Business Awards.
Mathews pointed out that Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices already has a sizeable presence in Texas, which will help his brokerage. “Texans know there’s a terrific new brand operating locally that adds prestige and value to their listings and transactions,” he said. “Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices is ‘good to know’ and is great to have on your side.”
With their transition, Premier Properties agents gain access to Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices’ powerful Global Network Platform – a suite of online tools, applications and services – plus ongoing business consultation, professional, education and marketing support. Resources include powerful lead generation, a handy mobile app, and other tools driven by the cleanest, most accurate real estate data available.
Mathews said the Global Network Platform will extend the reach and efficiency of his agents, and will appeal to real estate professionals outside of his brokerage. “We are thrilled for the future,” he said. “We have a powerful brand, powerful tools and new energy. We feel we’re unstoppable in our service to clients.”
