GIG HARBOR, Wash. (February 26, 2019) – Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, part of the HSF Affiliates LLC family of real estate brokerage franchise networks, today announced that a top-producing real estate team from Keller Williams Realty Tacoma, has joined its network and formed a brokerage. The team now operates as Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices South Sound Properties, specializing in new-home sales.

South Sound Properties, which represents homebuilders in Pierce and Thurston counties, is owned and operated by Gary and Pam Hendrickson. The brokerage joins one of America’s fastest-growing real estate brokerage networks now counting nearly 50,000 agents and 1,450+ offices in just over five years as a brand.

Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Chairman Gino Blefari welcomed South Sound Properties to the brand. “This company is by no means a startup operation,” said Blefari. “Gary is so well respected among local homebuilders and the team he and Pam have assembled brings a wonderful mix of experience, skill, diversity and enthusiasm. Their success in new-home sales and the trust they’ve established among builders and real estate consumers will keep South Sound Properties growing for years.”

“We wanted to form our own brokerage for some time and considered many brand options,” said Gary Hendrickson. “We chose Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices for its name appeal and lineage, and for its philosophy on growth. The brand chooses network members who want to grow, and it supports them with top-quality tools and resources. South Sound Properties is ready to grow from the start.”

With a new-home sales dream team in place, Gary Hendrickson said he will build an existing-home sales operation by recruiting top, local agents. Broker Michael Dattilo, with extensive experience in new- and existing-home sales, has already joined the brokerage.

As part of their network membership, South Sound Properties agents gain access to Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices’ Global Network Platform, a powerful tool suite driving lead generation, marketing support, social media, video production/distribution and more. In addition, the network provides global listing syndication, relocation referrals, professional education and the exclusive Luxury Collection marketing program for high-end listings.

South Sound Properties also joins Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices’ active client-referral and relocation networks. “Fellow network members operate across America and in Berlin, Germany; London, England; Milan, Italy and other regions,” said Pam Hendrickson. “We look forward to additional business through these channels and for the global exposure our listings will receive through our network and its listing-syndication programs.”

South Sound Properties will commemorate its brand transition today with an open house event from 1-7 p.m. at its new headquarters in downtown Gig Harbor, 3126 Harborview Drive.
