Warren Buffett Speaks About Home Services

by Victor Lund on April 5, 2013

berkshire hathawayBerkshire Hathaway is a company with $200 Billion dollars in net worth with 300,000 employees. It is one of the three largest companies in America, and according to Buffett, it is a company that is built to last forever. That is the way Berkshire Hathaway thinks. Build businesses that last forever.

There is a great quote in this video, one I believe I have heard him say in the past, “You see who is swimming naked when the tide goes out.” During the last four or five years of housing market adjustments, most companies played defense, but Home Services of America went on offense, expanding their brokerage network across America with significant business growth. They not only expanded wider, by acquiring new market leading brokerages in additional cities, but they also expanded deeper. In most of their brokerage operations they were able to significantly increase their percentage of market share. It is an astounding success story.

This may astound you, but there is not a single mention about the role of technology in real estate. It is about brands that people trust.
