2021 was a compelling year for Candace Adams. In addition to bringing on Diane Ramirez, one of the industry’s most prolific real estate professionals, as chief strategy officer for the firm’s New York operations, Adams extended the organization’s growth into New York with the 13-office, 400-plus agent acquisition of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Hudson Valley Properties, one of the most highly respected independent brokerages in the global network. She now oversees the brand’s operations in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New York and Rhode Island.
Part of the real estate industry for more than 30 years, Adams sold her company to Prudential in the early 1990s, and continued to grow the firm and ultimately affiliate with HomeServices of America and transition to the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices brand. She now serves as president and CEO of the multi-state firm that is home to more than 2,200 agents and 63 offices spanning four states.
Even while managing multiple brands across the region, Adams is determined to strategically grow this already iconic Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices operation throughout the Northeast. “I am thrilled to be a part of building this dynamic operation in the Northeast,” she says. “The talent that we are attracting is of the highest caliber and we are so proud to be expanding with such quality.”
