Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Recognized by J.D. Power

We’re excited to announce Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, was ranked “Highest Overall Satisfaction for Repeat Home Buyers Among National Full Service Real Estate Firms” in the J.D. Power 2018 Home Buyer/Seller Satisfaction StudySM.

The study, now in its 11th year, measured satisfaction with the nation’s largest real estate companies among customers in four segments: first-time buyers; repeat buyers; first-time sellers; and repeat sellers. Overall satisfaction was tracked on a 1,000-point scale across four factors of the home-buying experience: agent/salesperson; real estate company office; closing process; and variety of additional services.

Among repeat home buyers, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices scored 874 out of a possible 1,000 points, performing particularly well in the agent/salesperson category among others. “Our Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices network represents top-quality service and representation across the U.S. and in Berlin, London and other parts of the world,” said Gino Blefari, CEO and president of the network.

“The ranking ‘highest for repeat home buyer satisfaction’ says a lot about our network agents and brokerages,” Blefari added. “In simple terms, clients experienced our network’s service and expertise, successfully navigated the real estate process, and returned for another transaction. Our network agents earn repeat business and that is the true mark of quality service.”

 

Congratulations to our agents! 2019 Semi-Finalists for the Platinum Top 50 Award - Austin Texas! "The Platinum Top 50 Awards Program annually recognizes fifty (50) Residential Real Estate Professionals for their outstanding achievements in: sales, education, industry participation and civic leadership."

 

Our culture is fueled by serving our local communities, so it’s fundamental that we give back to the communities and we do that through our national partnership with the “Sunshine Kids” charitable foundation which serves to assist kids diagnosed with cancer. In 2017, the network raised nearly $1.7 million for the foundation and since 1991, , our network has raised over $30.2 million.

 

We are pumped to announce that Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Texas Realty has once again been recognized as one of the top brokerages in a network made up of over 1400 offices! 

 

Introducing Our National TV Spot

 

Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices recently launched a new TV spot that focuses on the homeselling process. This clearly sets us apart from the buyer-focused ads the industry typically produces.

The spot, entitled “Place,” includes vignettes of people in locations both near and far from where they live, acknowledging no matter where life takes you, there truly is no place like home. It concludes with a nod to members of the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices brokerage network, who have the expertise to help buyers and sellers find their way home through homeownership. “Our message captures the emotional journey of home selling and demonstrates the value of our knowledgeable agents,” said Gino Blefari, CEO of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices. “We know a home represents the most significant transaction most people may ever make in their lives and this spot reflects the magnitude of that all-important decision.”

The spot will run on national cable, but you can see it here first.
