Oh, it’s on. After a personal phone call with Keller Williams CEO Gary Keller, Berkshire Hathaway’s top agent Mike McCann and his 25-person team is defecting to Keller Williams Philly, a local Keller Williams franchise.

McCann and his team closed 793 transactions for $361 million in sales volume in 2017, making him Berkshire Hathaway’s top agent according to Real Trends, as well as the number one agent in Pennsylvania and 22nd in the nation.

Known locally as “The Real Estate Man,” McCann has spent the past 27 years with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Fox & Roach, which was was acquired by Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices from Prudential in 2013.

McCann pointed to Keller Williams’ investment into its technology platform as a major reason for joining the brokerage, according to Inman.

With McCann’s departure, Berkshire Hathaway’s top team will now likely be the Ivan Sher Group in Las Vegas, formerly known as the Shapiro & Sher Group, according to Real Trends’ latest rankings.

The top team in the nation in 2017 was another Keller Williams outfit – the Bob Lucido Team in Maryland, who just edged out Nest Seekers’ Serhant team for the number one spot. [Inman] — Kevin Sun
