SEA GIRT, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, part of the HSF Affiliates family of real estate brokerage networks, today announced that RE/MAX Signature Properties has joined the network operating as Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Signature Properties.

Violette said the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices brand is fresh, sophisticated and intelligent. As important, it carries the name of Berkshire Hathaway Inc., one of the world’s most respected and trusted corporations. “We believe this brand will resonate particularly well in our high-end residential markets, which are driven in part by affluent professionals from New York City and other urban centers of the Northeast,” Violette explained. “These clients understand the power and reputation of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices and will use the brand to their advantage.”
Top sales professionals will also appreciate the brand and will want to represent it, Violette added. “Any local agent who’s ready to take his or her business to new levels should look no farther than Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Signature Properties.

Specifically, he’s looking to expand the company’s presence in Spring Lake and neighboring communities in the next 12 months.
With their transition, Signature Properties 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 and resort listings.
“Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices gives our agents everything they need to be their very best for clients,” said Violette. “We’re ready for an exciting new era with the brand.”
