Irvine, CA (May 28, 2020) – Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices announced today its ‘Behind the Listing’ has been named a Silver Winner in Online Commercials – General Real Estate in the 41st Annual Telly Awards. The Telly Awards honors excellence in video and television across all screens and is judged by leaders from video platforms, television, streaming networks, production companies and including Dow Jones, Duplass Brothers Productions, Complex Networks, A&E Networks, Hearst Media, ESPN Films, RYOT, Vice+ and Vimeo.
Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices partnered with The Wall Street Journal | Barron’s Group to create “Behind the Listing” — an online video series that highlights luxury real estate listings across the globe. The ongoing series presents properties on the market in a unique, cinematic style.
“Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices is pushing the boundaries for video and television innovation and creativity at a time when the industry is both rapidly changing and heavily impacted by the current crisis,” said Sabrina Dridje, Managing Director of the Telly Awards. “Our theme for this season, Telly Award Winners Tell Great Stories is a true reflection of the diversity of stories the community is skillfully able to tell. Now, more than ever, do we need to celebrate them and those that bring global stories to our attention. This award is a tribute to the talent and vision of these creators.”
“We are so thrilled that Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices’s partnership with The Wall Street Journal | Barron’s Group has been recognized by the Telly Awards,” said Chris Stuart, CEO for Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices. “’Behind the Listing’ is a ground-breaking creative project that has consistently delivered world-class visuals that match the world-class properties it highlights. The fact that this collaboration has won a Telly drives home how fruitful our collaboration has been with The Wall Street Journal | Barron’s Group.”
Luke Bahrenburg, Senior Vice President of B2C Media and Marketing at The Wall Street Journal | Barron’s Group echoes Stuart’s enthusiasm over the companies’ multi-year partnership. “It's been a privilege to work with the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices team to bring to life not only the stunning properties themselves, but the personal stories and connections they inspire,” Bahrenburg says. “The ‘Behind The Listing’ videos are consistently amongst some of our highest performing content programs, owed to the fervent interest our audience has for luxury property.”
Today’s winners announcement caps a year-long celebration of creators around the globe and across all screens. Continuing on from the inaugural Film & Video Screening Tour last season, The Telly Awards toured a selection of Telly Award winning work to London, NYC, Amsterdam and Toronto, culminating with an online event.
