LAS VEGAS, June 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Americana Holdings, which operates Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Nevada Properties and Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Arizona Properties, has opened a new division of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties. The franchise will operate in Southern California’s Tri-County area, which includes San Bernardino, Riverside and Orange Counties.

“We are opening our first office in Yorba Linda today and will open a second office in Brea next month,” said Gordon Miles, president and COO of Americana Holdings. The company will be doing business as Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties in California. The name is used by multiple Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices franchise owners with operations in the state.

“We plan on opening three offices this year and continuing a strong growth plan in the years to come,” said Miles. “We currently have many great relationships with top producing sales executives in the market place and look forward to our California expansion being a very successful extension of our Nevada and Arizona operations.”

Americana Holdings operates the sole Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices franchises in both Nevada and Arizona. Combined, the companies have nearly 2,000 real estate sales executives in 20 offices. In 2015, the franchise was recognized as the fourth largest in the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices organization.

The new office opening today is located at 22601 Old Canal Road in Yorba Linda. “We are outfitting all our offices with state-of-the-art technology and luxury amenities,” said Miles. More information on the office and new franchise can be found at

According to CEO Mark Stark, Americana Holdings’ decision to open a franchise in California was a natural progression of its growth in the past five years. “We are growing, and California offers huge opportunities for our sales executives and their clients,” he said. “We have a very unique business model that is set up to leverage all the markets we service. Our model attracts, develops and inspires the brightest and most successful sales executives in the marketplace and in turn this benefits all the buyers and sellers we represent.”

Americana Holdings has become one of the most successful Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices franchises in the country since joining the brand in 2014. Last year, the company posted $2.7 billion in sales between Arizona and Nevada.

Stark said the new company will allow Americana Holdings to showcase its operational success and apply its business model in a new and dynamic market. “We look forward to sharing our systems and vision while interacting with many of the hard working real estate sales executives in Southern California,” he said.

This year, several of the company’s individual sales executives and teams were recognized among the top in the country within the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices network. The franchise itself was named the #4 franchise in the organization, ranked by sales volume. Shapiro & Sher Group, long recognized as the top luxury real estate sales team in Nevada, was named the #2 team among thousands across the country. And two Las Vegas offices were recognized in the top 10 most productive throughout the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices organization.

“Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices has become the premier brand in residential real estate and we were thrilled to be recognized among the organization’s top franchises, top teams and top offices in the country,” said Stark. “The brand is now known globally as a leader in technology, marketing and overall representation of buyers and sellers.”
