Brookfield Communities Partners With Keller Williams

Brookfield Communities has partnered with Keller Williams – the largest residential brokerage firm in the U.S. – to market and sell homes at its Fox Creek  master-plan development in Bullhead City.

The partnership, finalized last week, will give Fox Creek significant growth opportunities, said Brookfield Communities founder and president, Phil Petersen.

“This is a strategic and important move for Brookfield Communities,” said Petersen, who started Fox Creek nearly 20 years ago and continues to grow the community. “We are excited to partner with the experienced Keller Williams team.”

More than 40 realtors from Keller Williams have already begun marketing homes at Fox Creek. Leading the marketing efforts for Richard Lerma and the Bullhead City Keller Williams office will be the husband and wife team, Chas and Jill Williams.

“This is like coming home for us since we started our careers at Fox Creek nearly 10 years ago,” said Chas Williams, who lives in Fox Creek.

Petersen said the timing of the partnership was optimal since the residential market has been steadily improving. Since opening a new model home complex earlier this year, Fox Creek has seen record traffic. Brookfield Communities also recently added an additional 173 acres of land to its existing 750-acre Fox Creek development.

“The alliance with Keller Williams opens the door to an entire nation of prospective buyers,” said Lerma, operating principal for Keller Williams and its Bullhead City office. “Home values are up across the board and those who have been waiting on the sidelines are now looking to buy.”

Lerma’s team generated more than $78 million in revenues last year and is on track to surpass $100 million this year. While 40 agents will initially work on the Fox Creek team, additional team members may be added as demand dictates, Lerma said.

In addition, Fox Creek now becomes an integral part of Keller Williams Internet marketing programs, further showcasing the community to a broad array of audiences.
