Prudential Hallmark Realty joins Berkshire Hathaway
North San Luis Obispo County brokerage to operate as Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Hallmark Realty
Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, the new real estate brokerage network operated by HSF Affiliates LLC, today announced that Prudential Hallmark Realty has joined the network and is operating as Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Hallmark Realty.
Hallmark Realty has helped thousands of buyers find their homes in North San Luis Obispo County. The company remains independently owned and operated by industry veteran Vickie Mullins, providing a wide range of real estate services.
“We are the same terrific company now aligned with a powerful new brand,” said Mullins. “Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices’ namesake is Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Inc., the world’s most respected corporation according to Barron’s. We are proud and elated to attach that name to our own.”
Mullins said the brand will help her company grow in the competitive North San Luis Obispo County real estate market. “We believe consumers seek out the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices name on yard signs as a symbol of integrity and quality service,” Mullins explained. “At the same time, top real estate professionals will want to represent Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices since the brand is fresh, intelligent and a true ‘door opener.’”
Hallmark Realty agents also gain access to Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices’ robust technology platform, lead-generation system, business consultation, professional education, marketing support and the Luxury Collection program that adds marketing clout to high-end listings.
Stephen Phillips, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices president, welcomed Mullins and her company to the brand. “We are happy to add Hallmark Realty to our growing network,” he said. “Vickie is a highly respected broker and leader, and her agents are known for their sound guidance and professionalism.”
