PARKERSBURG –Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Real Estate Center is merging with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Professional Realty, an Ohio-based brokerage.

BHHS Real Estate Center is located in Parkersburg, Marietta and McConnelsville, Ohio. The merger will be effective at the end of 2019.

The merger “will help us provide an even higher level of service to our community,” said Terry Connolly, one of BHHS Real Estate Center’s principals.

Connolly, Ted Gaston, Don Dooley and Linda McLean have owned and operated as Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Real Estate Center since 2013, one of the first companies to join the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices network, according to a press release.

“We are so excited about the melding of our company with Professional Realty,” Gaston said. “Not only will we be able to provide the most advanced real estate technology, we will have access to more buyers who might be moving to the Mid-Ohio Valley to buy a home.”

The merger will combine two like-minded agencies with shared visions to create an even stronger community presence, the owners said.

BHHS Real Estate Center supports local non-profit organizations and community events, the owners said. The company culture is steeped in giving back to the communities it serves, they said.

“We are thrilled to be joining forces with such a top notch brokerage as Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Real Estate Center,” said David Mussari, managing partner of Professional Realty. “Their culture, professionalism and local community involvement are unparalleled in the region and are in perfect alignment with our goals and vision of the future.”

The merged companies will operate under the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Professional Realty name. Professional Realty is in the top 25 BHHS affiliates nationwide and has been recognized as one of the top 500 real estate brokerages in the nation, a press release states.

The brokerage’s 600 agents and 30 offices service the Ohio major markets of Cincinnati, Columbus, Cleveland, Akron, Dayton and the surrounding areas. Professional Realty is a full-service real estate brokerage which handles residential sales, commercial sales and leasing and relocation assistance.
