“The world is watching Las Vegas real estate this year, with many national experts predicting that we will have the hottest real estate market in the country in 2018,” says Mark Stark, CEO of Americana Holdings. “We have steadily grown our business overall in the past five years and outperformed even our best estimates in 2017. I am eager to help my 2,800 colleagues build their businesses thoughtfully and intentionally this year, regardless of the market’s ebbs and flows.”
Americana Holdings has 27 offices and 2,800 real estate sales executives, making it the largest independently-owned Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices franchise in the world, according to a company release. In the past year, the company acquired and began operation in several new markets, including Sedona, Ariz., and Palm Springs, Calif.
The company also implemented new global marketing and sales initiatives in 2017 that President and COO Gordon Miles attributes to its record-breaking sales.
“We made a significant investment in big data and have gained truly stellar intelligence about the demand that exists for every one of our listings,” says Miles. “The fact we can get a complete picture of buyer activity from many different sources provides a significant advantage in the marketplace.”
The company’s work in the Nevada community included a 2017 partnership with the Vegas Golden Knights, Las Vegas’ NHL hockey team.
“The Berkshire Hathaway brand is one of the most respected brand names in the world, and in 2017 we were proud to partner with Las Vegas’ newest professional sports brand, the Vegas Golden Knights,” Miles says. “Our real estate sales executives work directly with players, management and support staff on their real estate purchases and sales.”
The company also supports dozens of local charities, including Opportunity Village, the Las Vegas Rescue Mission and Golden Rainbow.
