Houston real estate broker Tiffany Curry has become the first African American owner of a Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices franchise in the world.
Operating as BHHS Tiffany Curry & Co., REALTORS, Curry’s new firm, which is also the first woman-owned BHHS in Houston, pairs a franchise with a boutique appeal where agents and clients receive personal service and hands-on support.
“Over the last 12 years I have traveled the nation, networking with some of real estate’s brightest talents,” Curry said in a press release. “I’m thrilled to bring that mix of creativity and innovation to the Greater Houston real estate market. … I look forward to growing a diverse company for all generations, backgrounds and for professionals at different stages of life.”
Curry looks to grow her Warren Buffet-affiliated firm over the next 10 years, with a location in each of Houston’s high-traffic areas.
A top Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices agent and certified relocation specialist for more than 12 years, Curry has received numerous recognitions, including Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices’ President’s Circle and Chairman’s Circle awards. She also holds the Institute for Luxury Home Marketing Million Dollar GUILD designation.
“Tiffany Curry is a talented leader who brings out the very best in those who work with her,” said Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices CEO Chris Stuart. “Over the years, her teams have been motivated, well-trained and laser-focused on clients’ varying needs. The same should be expected of Tiffany Curry & Co., REALTORS.”
A native Houstonian, in 2017 Curry was named Woman of the Year by the women’s CEO project Global Power Tour Houston and in 2018, she was inducted into The National Civil Rights Hall of Fame. The National Association of Realtors appointed her as a president’s liaison in 2014 and 2019, and she’s served on the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices’ national Rethink Council, a think-tank for millennial agents bringing the next generation perspective to the company’s executive leadership team.
“In the words of Babe Ruth, ‘It’s hard to beat a person who never gives up,” Curry said. “I always tell aspiring entrepreneurs: You can achieve anything in life if you put your mind to it.”
