Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Northwest Real Estate Bend
Change is in the air. The leaves have turned throughout Central Oregon, the Cascade Mountains are blanketed with snow, and winter is right around the corner in Bend. I also have a big change to announce. My former company, Prudential Northwest Properties, adopted our new name on November 6th, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Northwest Real Estate. That's right, Warren Buffet's Berkshire Hathaway has put the brand behind the new HomeServices real estate network. I'm excited for the change as new programs, technology, and tools are already rolling out.
“Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices is a new franchise built upon the financial strength and leadership of Brookfield and HomeServices,” said Warren Buffett, Chairman and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway Inc. “I am confident that these partners will deliver value to the residential real estate industry, and I am pleased to have Berkshire Hathaway be a part of the new brand.”
As of yesterday all of my real estate signs in and around Bend were swaped out for the new Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices "cabernet and cream" signs. Look for all signs and marketing material from Prudential Northwest Properties Bend to be converted within the next week. I'm in the process of changing all logos and contact information on all of my sites and marketing material as well. The signs have a great look to them!
What does this mean for my buyers and sellers?
When Warren Buffet puts a name like Berkshire Hathaway behind his new real estate franchise, you know the company is going to be on the forefront of technology and real estate services offered. Berkshire Hathaway is recognized as the No. 1 company in Barron’s annual ranking of the world’s 100 most respected companies. After the transition is complete, new technology and services will be rolling out. We don't have all of the details yet, but new programs have been announced and more information will follow. I believe it will be a strong network of agents and offices throughout the country with unbeatable client services.
Prudential Northwest Properties is one of the first few companies to adopt the new Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices name, following affiliates in California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, North Carolina, Missouri, Texas and Washington. Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices is based out of Irvine California.
