LAS VEGAS – Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Nevada Properties recognized its top real estate sales executives and teams for their 2016 achievements. The company completed $3.7 billion in sales last year, a 19 percent gain over 2015.
“We are steadily growing year after year,” said CEO Mark Stark. “We completed $3.1 billion in sales in 2015, which was a 15 percent increase over the previous year. We expect to see steady growth in all three markets in the coming year, with new office openings planned for both Arizona and California.”
Gordon Miles, president and COO, said the company’s international branding and marketing will continue to expand in the coming year. “Southern Nevada’s reputation for high-end and ultra-luxury real estate continues to evolve on a global level,” he said. “Our company sold nearly one out of every four homes over $1 million last year. We expanded our global marketing reach with new technology and multi-lingual platforms designed specifically for international buyers.”
Miles said in addition to working with its sister companies in major feeder markets like Arizona and Southern California, the company invested in advanced technology designed to find prospective home buyers and sellers when they are looking for homes online using non-Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices apps and programs.
Berkshire Hathaway’s global brand recognition has been an important distinguishing factor in the company’s continued growth, said Stark. “In 2016, Fortune named Berkshire Hathaway the fourth most admired brand in the world,” he said. “When it comes to real estate, buyers and sellers want to work with a company they can trust and Berkshire Hathaway’s brand reputation is one they can rely on.”
