Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Named ‘Real Estate Agency Brand of the Year

Monday, March 24, 2014

IRVINE, CA (Mar. 19, 2014) – Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, the new real estate brokerage network operated by HSF Affiliates LLC, today announced it was named “Real Estate Agency Brand of the Year” in the 26th annual Harris Poll EquiTrend® study.

Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices received the highest ranking in the Real Estate Agency category based on consumers’ perception of its brand familiarity, quality and purchasing consideration, among other qualifying elements. The study was based on opinions of more than 40,000 U.S. consumers surveyed online earlier this year.

“We are delighted to be recognized by consumers in the venerable Harris Poll EquiTrend® study,” said Earl Lee, CEO of HSF Affiliates LLC, which operates Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices. “This terrific honor by consumers is a tribute to our powerful brand – whose namesake is the world-renowned Berkshire Hathaway Inc. – and the top-quality affiliates and agents who represent it.”

Added Stephen Phillips, president of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices: “We are humbled by the honor, particularly since our brand was not even a year old at the time of the study. We look forward to a bright future as part of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices.”

The brand received the highest numerical Equity Score among large real estate brands included in the 2014 Harris Poll EquiTrend® study, which measures and compares the brand health of more than 1,500 brands across 170 categories from airlines and apparel to retailers and real estate. Consumers responded with their brand perceptions, gauging their emotional connection to the brand, plus brand awareness, influence and familiarity. According to Harris, a brand is defined as a set of persuasive promises about a product, service or organization that differentiates it from others in a universally positive, contextually relevant or personally compelling way.

Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, which transitioned its first affiliates in September 2013, has grown exponentially with independently owned brokerages operating across America. The network is built on a foundation of quality with rigorous standards for affiliation. “Our network members clearly understand the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices’ brand promise and the responsibility to uphold it,” said Phillips. “We all believe it’s an honor to be part of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices.” --more--

Mafia Master Mansion for sale in Miami

Wednesday, March 19, 2014

The notorious Al Capone’s Mansion is back on sale for $8.5 million in Miami. The massive 10,000 square-foot waterfront mansion where Capone lived and died sits on the exclusive Palm Island, near Biscayne Bay, Miami’s skyscrapers, and South Beach’s hotel district.

The current owner of Capone’s mansion purchased the home about six months ago for a mere $7.4 million, according to Miami-Dade property records.

The notorious Capone Mansion was built in 1922 by Clarence Busch, of the Anheuser-Busch brewing family. Capone made his fortunes by importing and selling liquor during prohibition. Capone purchased his mansion in 1928 for $40,000, after reportedly being chased out of Chicago and Los Angeles.

This notorious mansion was believed to be the place where Capone plotted the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre in 1929.

When Capone arrived in Florida, the city trembled, newspapers followed him everywhere, and the Governor, Doyle Carlton, ordered sheriffs to arrest him on sight. Still, Capone attempted to win the locals’ affection by promising not to break laws, and also giving generous donations to legislators.

The mansion itself became a fortress, with heavy wooden doors, concrete walls and a gatehouse to keep the people inside, in, and the people outside, out. In addition to the property itself, bodyguards were present at all time, both in the mansion, and following Capone as an entourage.

Capone was known for spending $1,000 at a time, just on clothing in the newly expanding downtown Miami, or possibly gambling at the casinos in Miami Beach, or other games he enjoyed.
