Berkshire Hathaway celebrates ribbon cutting

March 12, 2014

Berkshire Hathaway Home Services celebrated the grand openings of several offices after the company took over several Prudential Great Lakes locations including one office downtown Clarkston.

Additional Prudential offices now operating under the Berkshire Hathaway name include locations in Fenton, Grand Blanc, Davison, Fenton and Commerce Township.

On Feb. 21 the newly named office in Clarkston welcomed guests to a ribbon cutting ceremony and grand opening celebration. The real estate company was founded by billionaire businessman Warren Buffet.

Agents from a handful of Berkshire Hathaway’s 38 offices in Michigan also attended the celebration to show their support for coworkers. In total, the company employs over 550 agents, who in 2013 racked up $1 billion in sales.

Clarkston Area Chamber of Commerce also attended the celebration. CACC’s Janelle Edmunds said it’s always great to welcome a new business to town, and one of the ways the CACC helps is by promoting business events like grand opening celebrations.

The present office in Clarkston Mills Mall has operated as a real estate office since 1981. Berkshire Hathaway acquired Prudential in September.
