HomeServices traces its roots to Midwestern real estate brokerage group Amerus Home Services. In 1998, Iowa-based MidAmerican Energy Holdings bought Amerus, renaming it HomeServices of America the following year. Berkshire Hathaway bought the company the same year, organizing it under its Berkshire Hathaway Energy division. Gino Blefari was appointed CEO of HSA in 2019 after leading Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices for eight years.
How they describe themselves
"The experience of buying and selling a home can be difficult. Confusing. And laden with complexity. When we began in 1998, our goal was to change that. We developed a strategy that integrates all the pieces of the real estate transaction puzzle including mortgage, title, escrow, insurance and relocation into a suite of home services that work together. Today, while our companies each operate autonomously, they share the unifying priority of delivering an exceptional experience to customers throughout the home buying transaction process."
Did you know?
How did real estate get lumped into an energy division? Marketing. MidAmerican Energy bought the Amerus brokerages with the plan to enlist agents to market its energy services to homebuyers when and if the markets deregulated utility services.
