• The Boeckle Group, a local real estate team led by Las Vegas natives and brothers Landon and Jesse Boeckle, has joined Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Nevada Properties. The Boeckle Group specializes in working with investment properties and traditional residential home sales.
“Throughout the last few years, our team has really focused on investing in and flipping properties, so marketing the homes have not been necessarily in the forefront of our efforts. That’s where Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices will come in,” said Landon Boeckle, co-owner and the team’s broker salesperson. “Berkshire Hathaway’s marketing platforms and other technologies will be a valuable resource for us as we expand our marketing opportunities across the country and internationally.”
Landon and Jesse Boeckle started The Boeckle Group nearly four years ago and now operate a team of nearly 20 real estate professionals. The team has become one of the valley’s most successful in investment property rehabilitation. On average, they purchase and completely remodel 60 properties each year, and sell as many traditional residential homes as well.
The Boeckle Group has closed on their remodeled Las Vegas homes for as high as $1.45 million, which was sold in Summerlin.
“This is a unique real estate business in that our team is the client — we invest in the properties,” Landon Boeckle said. “Joining Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices gives us a huge opportunity to tap into their vast network of Realtors and work with agents who might have troubled listings and are looking for cash buyers.”
“We’re thrilled to work with the Boeckles and their entire team of sales executives,” said Mark Stark, CEO of Americana Holdings, the parent company of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Nevada Properties. “Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices’ brand and advanced marketing tools are uniquely positioned to help the team dramatically increase the number of potential buyers for their Las Vegas properties.”
