Real estate industry leader John “JT” Thompson has been appointed as general manager by Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Nevada, Arizona and California Services, which has an office in Prescott.
Thompson will oversee and support managers across 34 offices with more than 2,900 real estate sales executives, the company said in a press release. His efforts will focus on developing sales production, recruitment, retention and continuing the company’s core services, mortgage, title, escrow and insurance, while increasing market share.
He succeeds Troy Reierson, who is now the CEO of the Las Vegas-based company.
Thompson has been in the industry for 35 years and was a co-founder of Intero Real Estate Services, a Silicon Valley real estate services company. He played a vital role in the company’s exponential growth, and it was recognized as one of the fastest-growing organically built companies in the nation. Under his leadership, Intero was acquired by Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices in 2014.
