HomeServices of America, a Berkshire Hathaway affiliate, today announced the expansion of its executive leadership team to support the rapid and unprecedented growth of the organization.

HomeServices’ Executive Chairman Ron Peltier appointed Gino Blefari, current CEO of HSF Affiliates, as CEO of the company. HSF Affiliates is the HomeServices’ subsidiary operating the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices and Real Living franchise networks. Peltier and Blefari will lead the growing business of HomeServices of America, formulate and execute strategies consistent with the mission, values, and culture of the organization, and drive its continued acquisition strategies.

“Our growth brings substantial opportunity. In today’s competitive and fluid landscape we are the preferred choice for market leaders looking to join a company known for its integrity, financial strength, and operational excellence,” Peltier said. “To best capitalize, I wanted to add an executive with an extended history of enterprise growth and success. Gino has been instrumental in the growth and continued success of our franchise networks. His extraordinary expertise will provide a valuable added level of support for me and for our companies and will be a tremendous addition to the superb leadership team already in place.”

He was named the president and CEO of HSF Affiliates in 2015. Under his leadership, HSF Affiliates’ award-winning franchise networks have grown to include nearly 52,000 agents across 47 states. In 2018, Blefari led Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices’ global expansion to include leading brokerage companies based in Berlin, London and Milan.

“HomeServices of America is an incredible organization built on the strength of local brands and supported by a world-class leadership team,” said Blefari. “I couldn’t be more excited or proud to be joining a team that is so deeply connected to one another and committed to the ongoing success of their companies.”

Peltier founded HomeServices of America in 1998 and has grown the company into America’s largest residential real estate brokerage firm and the premier provider of homeownership services, including brokerage, mortgage, franchising, title, escrow, insurance, and corporate relocation services.

Peltier and Blefari will reinforce HomeServices of America’s mission of delivering an exceptional real estate experience through improved product offerings, emerging technology solutions, dynamic consumer-first strategies, and increased use of HomeServices’ full suite of homeownership services.

Blefari will continue driving the vision and mission of the franchise networks and remains actively involved in their operations. As part of the transition, Blefari appointed Chris Stuart to the roles of CEO of HSF Affiliates and president of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices; and Allan Dalton as CEO of Real Living Real Estate. “Chris brings a unique perspective to our industry based on his combination of enterprise technology experience plus his time with me operating Intero Real Estate, one of the country’s largest real estate brokerage firms. I have the highest confidence in Chris, who has been a skilled leader at HSF Affiliates, delivering exceptional growth and innovation to our networks,” said Blefari. “Allan, with decades of industry experience and success, will be a visionary leader of the Real Living network.”

These appointments are effective immediately.

“HomeServices’ commitment to acquiring market-leading companies and keeping the local brands intact remains unchanged,” concluded Peltier. “2019 promises to be a busy and exciting year for our company.”
