Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Properties Group was among the contingent of brokerage owners and agents recently represented at the 16th annual LPS Shanghai luxury property show in China. The LPS Shanghai show attracts affluent, Chinese real estate consumers interested in buying property abroad and particularly in the United States.
Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Properties Group Realtor Lena Tan of the company’s Carrollwood office was included with the network’s select agents staffing the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices exhibit booth. During the event, Tan greeted numerous show-goers and discussed Tampa Bay area properties, services and capabilities.
“LPS Shanghai was an incredible experience for our brand and network,” said Allen Crumbley, Broker/Owner of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Properties Group. “Lena extended her business and our firm’s growing global presence, to a new group of qualified property buyers.”
Network representatives also met with China-based real estate agents representing Chinese buyers and investors, as well as vendor alliances and others supporting the real estate process.
Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices initiated global expansion last year including listing syndication to the world’s leading real estate search sites, including Juwai.com in China. The firm’s website, www.bhhsfloridaproperties.com, translates in 12 languages and features the U.S. real estate industry’s most powerful home-search capability.
International homebuyers, particularly those from China, are increasingly cited as major participants in Tampa’s real estate market. Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices statistics show 20 percent of all international buyers in the United States purchase in Florida and 15 percent of all Florida foreign buyers are from Asia. Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices has exceptional tools and qualified professionals in place to reach and serve international buyers.
“The Tampa Bay area is particularly desirable for foreign buyers of real estate,” said Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Properties Group Broker/Owner Dewey Mitchell. “Our market offers excellent investment opportunities and also attracts international relocation buyers who are drawn to Tampa’s beaches, weather and way of life.”
Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Properties Group has 22 offices throughout the Tampa Bay area. For more information, visit a local branch office, call (888) 778-8258 or visit www.bhhsfloridaproperties.com.
