The theme of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices’ 2015 convention was certainly aptly named and timely in nature! Wikipedia describes the word Revolution as being of Latin origin and derived from the word revolutio, meaning “a turn around”; many times resulting in changes in culture and the economy.
In all of our markets we have seen a tremendous uptick in sales over the last week or so. With the weather improving and signs of spring actually taking place, listings are finally occurring and the buyers are out there en masse. Interest rates continue to be highly desirable and housing affordability is great. No question that it is a seller’s market and those agents controlling the inventory will be the winners. The real estate economy is looking good.
So, what about changes in culture? Obviously Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices is the new kid on the block, and one that the rest of the industry is watching very closely. With the retirement of BHHS President, Earl Lee, came the introduction of his successor, Gino Blefari. Gino’s excitement and energy bring vitality and enthusiasm to the network. He is a strong believer in team work and coaching for success. Gino is one that rolls up his sleeves and cheerleads our successes. He is motivational, talented and one of us. More than anything he wants the BHHS network to be the revolutionists --- the ones to shake up the industry and change the culture.
After being a part of the first Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices convention, I believe our network is the one leading the charge.
Energy, optimism and enthusiasm best describe the entire convention and the excitement of being part of the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices family. The keynote speakers were exceptional and included former U.S. Navy Seal, Eric Greitens and Senior Executive Coach, Mark Thompson.
Eric’s address talked about overcoming hurdles one step at a time, to ultimately reach the final goal. Since retiring as a Navy Seal, Eric started a non-profit organization for involving Veterans in community service and is also the author of “Resilience: Hard-Won Wisdom for Living a Better Life”. Eric has received numerous honors and awards, with TIME magazine naming him one of the 100 Most Influential People in the World (2013), and Fortune naming Eric as One of the 50 Greatest Leaders in the World.
Mark Thompson is a motivational speaker, bestselling author of a number of books (including “Now Build a Great Business: 7 Ways to Maximize Your Profits in Any Market”, “Admired – 21 Ways to Double Your Value”, and “Success Built to Last: Creating a Life That Matters”), Broadway Producer earning five Tony Awards, and previous partner to three of the world’s most innovative leaders – Sir Richard Branson, Steve Jobs and Charles Schwab. Mark’s relevant message was centered around leading the transformation now, with urgency and how to embrace change.
Other highlights of convention included the kickoff of the exclusive Spring National Advertising campaign on HGTV, where the theme is that a Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices sales professional is ‘Good to Know’. Additionally, a $50,000 sweepstakes from BHHS will be in conjunction with the popular t.v. show “Fixer Upper”. More details about the ad campaign and sweepstakes raffle can be found under the marketing section of BHHS REsource Center.
We are pleased to announce that thanks to all of your hard work in 2014, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices N.E. Prime Properties was honored as #40 in the network for 2014. This award is now called Elite Circle (previously Gibraltar Circle Award).
Kudos to all that supported our Sunshine Kids events in 2014.! We were named #9 in the network, having raised almost $43,000. The kids appreciate your support more than you know!
Amazing we accomplished, all this out of over 1,500 offices nation wide and 18 owned by Nancy Quinn and growing. Congratulations to our entire team.
