Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices will become an established brand in Germany following the signing of its first global franchise. Rubina Real Estate GmbH will operate as Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Rubina Real Estate.
Gino Blefari, president and CEO said, “Rubina Real Estate is an ideal fit for our network and we’re excited that it will carry the distinction of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices’ first franchisee abroad.”
For the new German franchisee, the brand’s famous parent company was a key reason for the decision to join the network. “The brand carries the name of Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Inc., one of the world’s most respected and trusted corporations. We believe the brand will be warmly embraced in our markets and will help us build our global brand bridging Europe, Asia and America.”
BHHS leader Gino Blefari said, “We’ve approached global network expansion very carefully and methodically. We will continue to name high-quality franchisees in the months ahead in Europe, Asia, North America and beyond.”
