ROCKFORD (WIFR) – Two local real estate brokerage firms are joining forces with a big name, possibly changing how real estate is done in the area.
Crosby Starck is now becoming part of the Berskshire Hathaway franchise, controlled by investor Warren Buffet.
In a recent Harris Poll, Berkshire Hathaway was named the most trusted real estate brand in the country. One of the brokers tells 23 News this could mean a lot more resources for those interested in buying homes in the Rockford Area Market.
"So Berkshire Hathaway brings with it a very powerful brand and they have a large machine behind it to move those properties and assist buyers and sellers in the market,” said managing broker, Jean Crosby.
Berkshire Hathaway made its first investment in a bank in Rockford in the 1960’s.
