CENTURY 21 Van Der Wende Associates, based in Little Falls, N.J., has joined Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices. The brokerage, led by Bob and Lorraine Van Der Wende, is now operating as Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Van Der Wende Properties, and remains independently owned and operated. The firm, founded in 1980, serves Greater North Jersey.
“Van Der Wende Properties is a terrific brokerage and a clear market leader for nearly three decades—that’s huge for our brand,” says Gino Blefari, president and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices. “The company is as much known for sound leadership and skilled, attentive sales professionals as it is for its work ethic and love for the business. We’re proud to welcome this team to Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices.”
“As brokerage owners, our responsibility is to provide our agents with the very best resources so that they may be their very best for their deserving clients,” says Bob Van Der Wende. “I interviewed and researched every brokerage network you could imagine, and the one that met my tough criteria was Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices. Simply put, we think Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices is the best brand name in real estate, and when our agents are sitting across from a client, that homebuyer or seller will feel instant trust and credibility.”
With their network membership, Van Der Wende Properties’ 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.
“The network is committed to providing the best tools and systems to enable their franchisees to stand apart from the competition and be even more productive,” says Lorraine Van Der Wende. “We are excited for our future with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices.”
“The possibilities are endless for a hard-working brokerage charged by the momentum and power of a brand that’s aggressively increasing marketshare, agent tools and support,” Bob Van Der Wende says. “We will grow and serve more clients, from entry-level and move-up buyers to sellers of our markets’ finest luxury homes.”
