HomeServices of America, the parent company of Long & Foster Real Estate and a Berkshire Hathaway affiliate, today announced that it has once again earned the title of the country’s largest residential real estate company.

In 2019, the company closed nearly 330,00 residential transactions and facilitated approximately 219,000 mortgage, insurance, title, and escrow transactions.

“This achievement affirms the hard work of our incredible team and while we are celebrating this moment, we recognize the challenges of these turbulent times,” said Blefari, CEO of HomeServices. “HomeServices is better positioned to manage through this volatility than any other real estate firm. And we are committed to supporting our agents as they safely and skillfully guide buyers and sellers through today’s home-transaction process.”
