CENTURY 21 Commonwealth, based in Boston, Mass., is joining Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices this November. The firm, led by Founding Partners George Patsio, Nick Patsio and Patrick Fortin, will operate as Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Commonwealth Real Estate, and remain independently owned and operated.
“Commonwealth is a well-respected company with outstanding leadership,” says Gino Blefari, president and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices. “We found instant chemistry with its leadership team and have already formed a strong bond with its members. We’re pleased Commonwealth will be a part of our real estate brokerage network and we’re ready to help the company grow.”
It is a market leader with more than 500 sales professionals, 22 offices and a sound reputation for client service, market expertise and operational excellence. Commonwealth is currently the No. 1 Century 21 brokerage in New England and No. 9 worldwide. Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices remains among America’s fastest-growing real estate brokerage networks with nearly 47,000 agents and 1,400 offices named to the brand since its September 2013 launch.
“We considered different real estate networks as part of our research and decided Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices offered what we need to help our brokerage expand and reach new levels of production and service,” says George Patsio. “After meeting the entire support team at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, we are even more confident in our decision and excited to get started.
“We are proud to link our brokerage to this iconic name and progressive real estate brokerage network,” Patsio says. “Part of the network’s mission is to help its franchisees grow. Our brokerage is poised for growth, and with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices’ support, we will do just that.”
With their network membership, Commonwealth agents gain access to Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices’ Global Network Platform, a powerful tool suite driving lead generation, marketing support, social media, video production/distribution, and more. The brand also provides international listing syndication, relocation referrals, professional education and the exclusive Luxury Collection marketing program for high-end listings.
“We will provide our sales associates with the tools and resources they need to be their best for clients,” says Patsio. “The Global Network Platform will help our team make even greater strides in efficiency and effectiveness. We’re eager to use these tools and resources.”
