Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Ranked Highest for Repeat Home Seller Satisfaction in J.D. Power’s 2017 Home Buyer/Seller Satisfaction Study

#GoodToKnow

MAYNARD, MA (December 12, 2017) -- Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, an HSF Affiliates LLC company, today announced that the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices real estate brokerage network ranked “Highest Overall Satisfaction for Repeat Home Sellers Among National Full Service Real Estate Firms” in the J.D. Power 2017 Home Buyer/Seller Satisfaction StudySM.

The 10th annual study measured customer satisfaction among the nation’s largest real estate brokerage companies and their agents through March and April. Overall satisfaction was gauged across five factors of the real estate process: agent/salesperson, closing process, real estate company marketing, real estate company office, and package of additional services. The study was based on responses from 4,170 consumers.

Among repeat home sellers, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices scored 858 on a 1,000-point scale, performing particularly well in the categories agent/sales person, closing process and real estate company marketing. 

“Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices stands for top-quality real estate representation in markets across America,” said Gino Blefari, CEO and president of the network. “We’re proud to accept this award, as it spotlights the exemplary service network agents and their brokerages provide every day.”

The ranking, “highest for repeat home seller satisfaction,” speaks volumes, Blefari added. “Repeat home sellers have been through the real estate process before and have a clear understanding of the work and expertise involved in a successful home sale,” he explained. “This type of satisfaction means Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices network agents are excelling when it comes to communicating with clients and listing and marketing clients’ homes. That’s the ‘heavy lifting’ of real estate.” 

J.D. Power’s study yielded several key findings about the real estate process. Among them:

  • An agent’s relationship with a buyer is the most important factor in determining customer satisfaction. For sellers, marketing of the home is the most important factor, as it is the most visible way for the seller to gauge the agent’s support.
  • Satisfaction is strongly influenced by the amount of time agents invest in keeping customers informed vs. when they are not kept informed. Among first-time buyers and sellers, satisfaction is 117 points higher among buyers and 93 points higher among sellers. Among repeat buyers and sellers, satisfaction is 210 points higher among buyers and 192 points higher among sellers when they receive a timely response to questions and concerns vs. when they do not.
  • Word-of-mouth remains important: First-time home buyers and sellers report good reputation and recommendations from friends, family and colleagues as the two main reasons for selecting a real estate company.
We are excited to offer the wide range of tools that we do to help make our agents shine in their markets, and with this award we’re proud to know our sellers agree that we have the best agents!
— Nancy Quinn, President, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices N.E. Prime Properties

“At Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices N.E. Prime Properties, we pride ourselves on delivering the best possible service for our clients,” said Nancy Quinn, President of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices N.E. Prime Properties. She continued, “we are excited to offer the wide range of tools that we do to help make our agents shine in their markets, and with this award we’re proud to know our sellers agree that we have the best agents!”

Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Launches First Phase of International Expansion

#GoodToKnow

United States-based real estate brokerage network will expand to global markets in 2017; one-of-a-kind property-search site and listing syndication program open initial gateways abroad

MAYNARD, MA (June 10, 2016) – Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, the United States-based real estate brokerage franchise network whose namesake is Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Inc., with N.E. Prime Properties today announced plans to expand internationally starting in 2017. As part of its first phase of expansion, the network launched a powerful, new property-search platform on its popular www.bhhsneprime.com website; and a listing-syndication program now broadcasting Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices network listings to 70 real estate websites worldwide.

The platform, developed in conjunction with Aliso Viejo, CA-based Real Estate Digital, offers the industry’s most complete search experience for global shoppers of U.S. real estate. With two mouse clicks, consumers may choose to translate the website in any of 10 languages besides English including Chinese, French (European and Canadian), German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese (Brazilian and European) and Spanish (European and Latin American). The site also seamlessly converts currency and measurements.

Consumers may then search for homes in any U.S. city or state serviced by Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices franchisees. What they find they can’t get on any other single site: full Multiple Listing Service data containing all listings in their search area. By registering on www.bhhsneprime.com, consumers also gain proprietary “Inside Access” features including the latest pending and sold information, market reports and property-price history.

“Until now, global shoppers of U.S. real estate see only a portion of homes for sale in their searches of states, cities and postal ZIP codes,” explained Gino Blefari, CEO of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices. “When you register and search for U.S. real estate on our website, you see every property for sale in your search area, and then you can filter and sort those searches as you would on other sites. It’s a much more effective way to begin searches of homes in America.”

“Consumers from around the globe searching for real estate in New England, and throughout the  rest of the United States will see our listings and all of the others,” said Nancy L. Quinn, CEO, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices N.E.

Global exposure will help our team attain more listings, as well as continue to recruit and retain top talent.

“Buyers all around the globe will see our listings. That is terrific news for both our clients and sales profesionals” said Quinn “Global exposure will help our team attain more listings, as well as continue to recruit and retain top talent.”
