Why is the debut of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices such major news?When one of the most highly regarded companies in the world puts its name on a real estate sign, the entire field is dramatically changed. Of all the real estate firms people can choose from, this one is in a class by itself.
Who is Berkshire Hathaway?
A worldwide holding company based in Omaha, NE, Berkshire Hathaway ranks number one on Barron’s 2013 list of the world’s 100 most respected companies. Its chairman and CEO, Warren Buffett, often called the Oracle of Omaha, is regularly cited by Time magazine as one of the world’s most influential people.
Why is the launch of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices important to me?
Real estate is local, but property marketing is global. When your home carries the Berkshire Hathaway brand, it’s immediately recognized and esteemed by buyers all over the world. The name stands for strength, integrity and trust, and buyers who see it on a yard sign are instantly impressed.
Selling your home could be the biggest financial decision you’ll ever make. It’s reassuring to be backed by a company legendary for trust, integrity and stability. “Berkshire Hathaway wants to be in businesses that are enduring,” says Warren Buffett. He sees real estate as that kind of business.
Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices is also grounded in the financial strength, efficiency and long tradition of parent companies that are immersed in every aspect of residential real estate. Having that depth of expertise on your side is invaluable.
How does the new brand change your company and your personal service?

We’ve simply been equipped with the most extensive suite of services and tools in real estate, and given the power to connect you with one of the strongest and most respected brands in the world.
