Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Arizona Properties Celebrates Record Growth In 2016
By: Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Arizona Properties
"This past year we increased our presence throughout the state with continued growth up the I-17 corridor," said Gordon Miles, president of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Arizona Properties and its parent company Americana Holdings. "We have a new office in Anthem and our new Sedona office is currently under construction."
CEO Mark Stark said the company's focus on increasing productivity helped bring in 225 new real estate sales executives, a record number. "Helping our sales executives and teams improve their business allows them to truly stand out in what they offer to their clients," he said. "That starts with listening, and really understanding what our executives want to accomplish for their businesses and clients. We work to achieve their goals through coaching, business development and education. We win and they win."
Stark said Berkshire Hathaway's brand recognition and the quality of the company's sales executives have been the biggest drivers in its growth over the past year. "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."
Stark's Americana Holdings franchise is the largest independently owned Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices franchise in the world. It includes Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices operations in Nevada, Arizona and Southern California. Combined, the companies have 2,200 real estate sales executives and 25 offices. The company completed $3.7 billion in total sales throughout its Nevada, Arizona and California operations in 2016, a 19 percent gain over the previous year.
