The brokerage remains independently owned and operated by local real estate veteran Cindy Stuart. It serves the greater Blue Ridge Mountains region from its Wytheville headquarters and offices in Bland and Hillsville. Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices is one of America’s fastest-growing real estate brokerage franchise networks with more than 50,000 agents and nearly 1,500 offices added to the brand since its launch six years ago. This includes global network members in Berlin and Frankfurt, Germany; London, England; Milan, Italy; Dubai, United Arab Emirates; Madrid and Barcelona, Spain; and Lisbon, Portugal.

“We’re proud to welcome Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Mountain Sky Properties as our brand ambassador to the incredible Blue Ridge Mountains,† said network CEO Chris Stuart. “Cindy is a passionate, highly engaged leader and her team is smart and works hard to ensure client satisfaction.†

Cindy Stuart said her brokerage, founded in 2006, had progressed as far as it could as an independent operation. “I wanted to grow my company and expand its reach and influence,† she explained. “I looked at just about every real estate brokerage network and chose Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices. The brand has invested substantially in real estate technology and its tools, resources and support are second to none. In addition, we get to link the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices name to ours and that’s great for business.†

With their brand transition, Mountain Sky Properties agents gain access to Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices’ active referral and relocation networks, and its “FOREVER Cloud† technology suite, a powerful source for lead generation, marketing support, social media, video production/distribution and more. Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices has aligned with Salesforce to deliver world-class technology support to its network members far into the future.

The brand also provides global listing syndication, professional training and ongoing education and the exclusive Luxury Collection marketing program for premier listings. Its Prestige Magazine showcases network members’ premium listings with a strong lineup of feature stories covering topics that appeal to high-end real estate consumers.

Cindy Stuart said FOREVER Cloud components will help her team cover more ground with even greater efficiency. “This is great news for our agents and clients who are spread across as many as 10 counties in Southwestern Virginia.†

She believes the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices brand will help her as she recruits more of the region’s top sales professionals, and the brand will be an important asset as she expands Mountain Sky Properties to another key market: Blacksburg, home of Virginia Tech University, a percolating local economy and a healthy, growing real estate market.

“We couldn’t be more excited for the future,† Cindy Stuart said. “Our entire team is energized and ready to serve more of our region’s customers.†
