At HomeServices, our mission is to create and deliver an unparalleled customer experience throughout the home transaction process.

Why We Do It

Whether our customers are buying, selling or just enjoying life in their home, HomeServices is there to make each home ownership decision easier, faster and more enjoyable. That's what customers expect from a full-service real estate company, and that's what we deliver.


HomeServices' operating companies offer integrated real estate services to their customers, including brokerage services, mortgage originations, title and closing services, home warranties, property and casualty insurance, and other related services. HomeServices has a distinct advantage when it comes to reaching customers and fulfilling their product and service needs. First, through our highly recognized brand name real estate brokerage firms, we establish solid relationships with our customers as they buy or sell a home. Second, we offer our customers an opportunity to streamline their home transaction process. HomeServices' philosophy of one-stop-shopping covers contact to closing and represents the company's dedication to streamlining and simplifying the homeownership transaction.

Our Growth Strategy

HomeServices' business model is not predicated on a single brand. On average, HomeServices' affiliate companies have an operating history of more than 50 years. HomeServices respects and remains committed to the local brand that established each company as a market leader. We intend to continue acquiring quality real estate operations. Our interest lies in leading companies located in very strong markets that have long-term, positive growth prospects for the future.

Since HomeServices was founded in 1998, the company has acquired 19 leading real estate firms throughout the country. HomeServices currently has over 20,000 agents and operates more than 380 branch offices.
