For The Leader
Finding a house to call a home is likely one of the biggest milestones a new family will experience. At the helm of that experience for many in the community is a family duo – twin brothers Stacy and Tracy Mathews – owners of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Premier Properties, the largest Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices franchise in Texas.
The Mathews brothers bring together their decade long careers in real estate and accounting, respectively, to expand their footprint in the Greater Houston area. Their combined expertise has helped their Berkshire Hathaway franchise thrive despite the unprecedented time caused by pandemic.
“We’ve experienced some great milestones this year, and we’re excited to continue expanding our footprint in the Houston area and beyond,” said Stacy Mathews, president and owner/broker of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Premier Properties.
With offices in Oak Forest at 1803 W. 43rd and in the Heights at 741 E. 11th St., Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Premier Properties has seen monumental growth in its 30th years thanks in part to its acquisition of Anderson Properties. By purchasing Anderson and merging their offices with current Berkshire Hathaway locations, the company has been able to extend its reach in the communities they already have a presence in.
“We’ve been fortunate to grow and foster a wonderful team of agents that has helped us get to this point,” said co-owner Tracy Mathews, chief financial officer, a licensed CPA who oversees the operations and financial health of the company. “Acquiring new offices and going through a merger like this is often challenging, but we feel confident in our decision and have seen positive results through staff retention and feedback from our clients.”
Expanding their group of agents from 150 to over 500 in a relatively short amount of time, Berkshire Hathaway has been able to meet the continued demand the Houston housing market has seen, Tracy Mathews says.
The Houston housing market is flourishing even with the challenges brought on by COVID-19. With this competitive market, it’s more important than ever to offer families resources to make the home buying experience convenient and as stress free as possible.
Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Premier Properties is able to do just that with partnerships that make a seamless home buying experience. The company is one of two brokerage firms in the city to partner with Knock Home Swap, which allows homeowners to “swap” their current house for their dream home. With pre-approval, homeowners get pre-approved for a competitively priced mortgage from Knock to buy their new house, avoiding living through renovations, prep pork or showings while still selling their current home for maximum price.
“The Home Swap is a convenient resource for homeowners who need to buy before selling, making the process seamless and cost-effective for everyone involved,” said Stacy Mathews, president and owner/broker of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Premier Properties.
Now with 14 offices in the Houston area and new locations in Tyler, Lubbock, Amarillo and Austin, plus partnerships like Knock Home Swap, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Premier Properties’ presence in the Texas real estate community is stronger than ever.
As the business grows, the Mathews brothers, who are both involved in the American Legion, a cause dedicated to veterans’ affairs, looks forward to other ways to give back to the communities they are entrenched in, including the Heights and Oak Forest. Berkshire Hathaway has an ongoing partnership with the Sunshine Kids, which serves children with cancer, and will continue to offer its support.
“We appreciate our clients, partners and agents who trust us with their business,” said Stacy Mathews. “As we look ahead to next 30 years, we look forward to continuing our role as a trusted resource for families who give us the privilege of being a part of their home buying experience.”
Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Premier Properties has Houston-area offices in Oak Forest/Garden Oaks, the Heights, Memorial, The Woodlands, Kingwood, Cypress, Katy, Sugar Land, Pearland, Bellaire, Galveston, Champions/Spring and Alvin.
