Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Nevada Properties celebrates 2018

One of Nevada’s largest real estate firms announced its 2017 sales numbers. Americana Holdings, based in Henderson, operates the largest Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices franchises in Nevada, Arizona and Southern California.

Combined, the companies completed $4.78 billion in real estate sales in 2017 — a 29 percent increase over its $3.7 billion sales volume in 2016.

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. In the past year, the company acquired and began operation in several new markets, including Sedona, Arizona, and Palm Springs, California.

“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,” said 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.”

The company also implemented new global marketing and sales initiatives in 2017 that president/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,” he said. “The fact we can get a complete picture of buyer activity from many different sources provides a significant advantage in the marketplace.”

Berkshire Hathaway’s work in the 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 said.

Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Nevada Properties recognized hundreds of real estate sales executives for their 2017 achievements Feb. 15 at Mandalay Bay.

Miles told the crowd of more than 1,000 at the awards ceremony that the company choose to hold its annual event at Mandalay Bay to support the local hotel-casino after the tragic Oct. 1 shooting.
