HomeServices and Brookfield Partner in New Franchise Brand October 30th, 2012
Berkshire Hathaway affiliate HomeServices of America, Inc.™ and Brookfield Asset Management announced today that they have partnered to introduce Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices®—a new franchise brand that joins the existing brands and affiliate networks of Prudential Real Estate and Real Living Real Estate.
In addition to being the nation’s second largest, full-service residential real estate brokerage firm, HomeServices is now a majority partner in one of the largest residential franchise networks in the United States. This transaction reinforces HomeServices’ status as a leading real estate company with an impressive record of financial strength, profitable growth and operational expertise.
Woods Bros Realty remains a Berkshire Hathaway affiliate and wholly owned subsidiary of HomeServices of America.
“The new HomeServices Franchise will have little impact on our company here, but will expand our national footprint,” HomeServices of Nebraska CEO Gene Brake said. “Woods Bros Realty is a trusted, long-standing brand in the local community, and we will continue to provide our agents and clients with the same great service. The new franchise just increases the strength and influence that Woods Bros has backing them. It is exciting to be with a growing organization that has great vision.”
