Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices announces their first network member in Mexico located in the American expatriate and retiree destination of San Miguel de Allende in central Mexico. The brokerage will operate as Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Colonial Homes San Miguel.
Already renowned as the “#1 City in the World” as designated twice each by Condé Nast Traveler and Travel & Leisure magazines, San Miguel de Allende is an ideal expansion for the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices brand which has widespread name-recognition among Americans.
“We’ve been eyeing Mexico for some time as part of our global expansion,” said Gino Blefari, chairman of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices. “With its strong American and Canadian population, San Miguel de Allende seemed a natural fit for our brand and the name recognition we command.”
The new Colonial Homes San Miguel office is positioned as a luxury-focused office, thanks in part to broker Gregory Gunter’s direction and background. As a certified Guild member of the Institute for Luxury Home Marketing, earned by multiple recent sales above $1MM in value, and a previous certified Global Luxury specialist, Gunter will receive the distinction as a Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Luxury Collection specialist, the brand’s division dedicated to the high-value homes owned by highly discerning homeowners. In the U.S., only seven percent of the real estate market fits that distinction, while Gunter notes it is 16% of the local market in San Miguel de Allende.
"I am thrilled to welcome Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Colonial Homes San Miguel to our real estate family. Their proven record will be the perfect compliment to the strength of the brand and I wish them continued success," said Nick Warren, CEO of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Warren Residential.
