Message From Chris Stuart, CEO, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices
Today our country cries. We mourn for the senseless death of George Floyd and all of those who have suffered under the cruelty of the injustices of police brutality and racism. We mourn for the family as they grieve the death of their son, and brother. We mourn for the communities and the innocent who have been affected by the anger of those who can no longer withhold their voices. We are saddened to see the destruction and violence that has affected so many cities and pray for restraint, peace and unity. It is these times when we must call for calm and for human kindness.
We are all joined together in seeking to understand and react to the events over the past week, the dialogue and reflection resulting from the national situation is important. While we each process the news and social impact in our search to understand the complex issues that surround this critical time in our nation’s history, it is more important now than ever before that we join together in uplifting and enriching an industry which is welcoming, supportive and inclusive.
We are beacons to our communities and it’s critical that we continue to provide the opportunity of home ownership fairly and without bias. We are hopeful that we can all leverage our collective positions in the real estate industry to lead with empathy, compassion, and resolve.
We want you to know that we are here for you today, tomorrow and forever.
We thank you all for your dedication, understanding, and professionalism.
Sincerely, Gino, Teresa and Chris
