Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices expands into New Delhi

Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices has announced its first brand expansion into New Delhi, India. The Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Orenda India office and its 20 agents will service Northern India, including Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Pune, Ludhiana, Ahmedabad, Lucknow, Jaipur and Goa, according to a news release.

“Relative to the Brand’s expansion anywhere in the world there is always one consideration—the quality, experience and reputation of the operators that will represent the global network in the new market,” said Chris Stuart, CEO, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices. “With respect to the Orenda India team, you could not ask for a better group of operators and we’re confident that their combination of experience and knowledge of the current, and future, dynamics that are fueling the real estate market in India will prove to be a wise and timely decision for the network.”

Stuart said locating the Orenda India office in the nation’s capital was a strategic one, and that Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices plans to “identify other complimentary markets for expansion throughout the country.”

With their brand transition, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Orenda India agents gain access to Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices’ active referral and relocation networks, and its “FOREVER Cloud” technology suite for lead generation, marketing support, social media, video production/distribution and more. Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices has aligned with best-in-class technology platforms to deliver world-class support to its network members far into the future.

The Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Orenda India team will also have full access to the recently unveiled, Real Estate I.Q. System. The System combines the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices brand, marketing resources and technology with progressive education, training, coaching and consulting. The brand also provides global listing syndication, professional training and ongoing education and the exclusive Luxury Collection marketing program for premier listings. Its Prestige Magazine showcases network members’ premium listings with a strong lineup of feature stories covering topics that appeal to high-end real estate consumers.

The addition of India furthers Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices’ global reach, who over the past three years has added franchisees in London (Kay & Co.); Dubai (Gulf Properties); Madrid and Barcelona (LARVIA) and Marbella; Lisbon (Portugal Property); Milan (MAGGI Properties); and Berlin and Frankfurt (Rubina Real Estate), Toronto and Quebec in Canada and San Miquel de Allende and Cancun in Mexico.
