That’s right– Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices is celebrating 7 years as a venerated and iconic global network. Through a steady growth path that’s seen prestigious office launches throughout the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Europe and the Middle East, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices casts an amazing footprint of over 50,000 real estate franchise network professionals spanning nearly 1,500 offices. We are FOREVER thankful to you, our incredible network members, for your role in upholding a promise to consumers based on the core values of trust, integrity, stability, and longevity.
On September 23, 2013, the very first yard sign was posted by Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties. In the first full calendar year as a network, 2014 saw Harris Poll Equitrend award Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices with the “Real Estate Agency Brand of the Year” and the American Business Awards recognized the network as “Startup of the Year”!
In the years since, based on your incomparable professionalism, the Brand has been awarded by Harris Poll Equitrend as “Real Estate Agency Brand of the Year” and “Most Trusted Real Estate Brand” in 2018, and again in 2020 as well as “Highest Ranked in Trust and Love”. Isn’t that awesome? Just 7 years as a network and recognized 3 of those 7 years as the Harris Poll Equitrend “Real Estate Agency Brand of the Year”!!
And through the seasons of our network’s growth, we’ve been #GoodToKnow and #GoodToAsk, remaining vigilant to our #ConsumerStrong focus as Real Estate’s #ForeverBrand. We honor and celebrate your permanence in the industry as #ForeverAgents – based on your professional dedication and your intention to serve clients through all of their life’s real estate journeys. Let’s watch our timeline video. (see below)
