It's an exciting time for the former Prudential Colorado Properties.
On October 22nd we proudly assumed the new brand name - Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices.
Berkshire Hathaway, led by Warren Buffett, acquired the majority stake of Prudential Real Estate from Brookfield in October of 2012.
Since then we have been preparing for a game-changing shift in the real estate marketplace not just locally here in the valley, but on a global level.
Recognized by Barron's as the most respected company in the world, Berkshire Hathaway has the reputation, integrity, financial resources and reach to launch our real estate brand.
For buyers, sellers, and the brokers this is an exciting time - and we are just getting started.
In the coming months there will be much to share, for now it is business as usual as we work through this very busy time in our season.
If you have any questions about the transition, please contact us any time.
"When people are making the decision of the magnitude of buying a house, it's the biggest decision a great many families will ever make.
They want to know who they're working with and we think that the Berkshire Hathaway name will be reassuring to many of those people."
- - Warren Buffett, Chairman and CEO, Berkshire Hathaway Inc.
