ABINGDON, VA and BRISTOL, TN (Feb. 21, 2019) – Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, part of the HSF Affiliates LLC family of real estate brokerage franchise networks, today announced that an independent brokerage family based along the Virginia and Tennessee border has joined its network. The company, operating as Jones and Associates Realty, Inc. in Abingdon, VA; and as Jones Property Group in Bristol, TN; will go forward as Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Jones Property Group.
The full-service brokerage remains independently owned by real estate veteran Carol Jones. It unites with one of America’s fastest-growing real estate brokerage networks, which now counts nearly 50,000 agents and 1,450+ in just over five years as a brand.
Gino Blefari, chairman of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, welcomed the brokerage. “Carol Jones and her agents are experienced market leaders whose mission is wonderfully simple: Clients Come First,” he said. “I can think of no greater guide for real estate success than client satisfaction, and the success the team consistently earns is impressive.”
“Our brokerage family is poised for a new stage of growth, so we sought a respected, global brand to help us achieve that important goal,” said Jones. “We researched many brands and chose Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices for its broad appeal in the marketplace and its progressive approaches to technology and marketing. We’re excited for our future as a member of the brand.”
Jones, whose brokerage specializes in the region’s mid-, high-end and luxury markets, said the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices brand will help her agents win additional business. “The brand is fresh, sophisticated and well suited to our market niches,” she explained. “We believe clients will appreciate the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices name and understand its marketing advantages.”
The brand will also help agent recruiting efforts, Jones added. “If you’re not changing, you’re not growing,” she said. “Top agents in the region who want to grow their businesses should consider a change to Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Jones Property Group.”
