The announcement of our brand name change to Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Van Der Wende Properties signals a defining moment in real estate. It unites the strengths of industry leaders, bringing together unparalleled operational excellence, innovation and integrity.
Being associated with such a highly recognizable brand is a responsibility not taken lightly as not everyone can become a Berkshire Hathaway company. We take great pride in the fact that our revered company – locally owned and operated since 1980 – was ‘invited’ to join Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices. Other companies under the Berkshire Hathaway umbrella include American Express, Geico, Wells Fargo, Coca Cola, and Helzberg Diamonds. Clearly, we have just entered a new era in New Jersey real estate.
My commitment to marketing real estate at the highest level coupled with our vision to be the most trusted real estate company in the regional market remains unchanged. The company we have established, together with this powerful new network, exemplifies the reputation of Berkshire Hathaway - recognized as the No. 4 company in Barron’s 2017 ranking of the world’s most respected companies.
“Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices is a new franchise brand built upon the financial strength and leadership of Brookfield and HomeServices,” said Warren Buffett, chairman and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway Inc. “I am confident that these partners will deliver value to the residential real estate industry, and I am pleased to have Berkshire Hathaway be a part of the new brand.”
I appreciate the trust you have placed in me to assist with your real estate needs and look forward to exceeding your expectations under our new name. Please contact me should you have any additional questions.
