Join us in recognizing this week’s featured 2020 Hall of Fame inductee:
Lawrence “Larry” Flick IV
Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Fox & Roach, REALTORS®
Larry Flick’s story began when he graduated college and started selling real estate for a small company on Philadelphia’s affluent Main Line. Soon into his career, he created the plan that would take his company from two offices to the region’s dominant broker. He grew the firm organically at first, and then through 40 mergers and acquisitions to its current size of 64 offices and 6,000 sales associates and employees, generating approximately 55,000 home services transactions a year across Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware and Maryland. Today, Flick is hailed as an iconic leader of one of the nation’s most successful real estate brokerage and financial services firms.
In the early 1980s, Flick recognized the need to earn more than one profit from the real estate transaction and was on the forefront of one-stop shopping. He created The Trident Group, which includes the Trident Mortgage Company, a leader in annual mortgage closings, Trident Land Transfer and Trident Insurance Agency.
Flick currently serves two roles: as chairman of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Fox & Roach, REALTORS® and The Trident Group, he creates the brokerage’s vision, guides the CEO and executive committee, and approves business plans and budgets; and as president of HomeServices of America’s Atlantic region, he coaches and helps develop CEOs of area HomeServices companies.
Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Fox & Roach was recently named the No. 1 brokerage across the entire Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices network of affiliates for the fourth year in a row.
“I’m very proud to have contributed to the success of our sales associates and employees, and I’m proud of how our company has grown over the years,” says Flick.
Flick says he’s also proud of the efforts to serve the community through Fox & Roach/Trident Charities, which Flick established in 1995. “Fox & Roach/Trident Charities has given grants of $6 million since its inception, plus our sales associates and employees have volunteered thousands of hours to supporting organizations in their area on our annual Community Service Day,” says Flick.
