Brown Harris Stevens is celebrating 150 years in business this year—a milestone few companies in any industry can claim. Since its founding in 1873, BHS has persevered through changing skylines, boom-and-bust cycles, war, advancements in technology, pandemics, and 29 U.S. presidents. BHS was in business before the Brooklyn Bridge was built and Central Park was completed. Our firm is now one of the largest privately owned real estate brokerages in the country, with more than 2700 agents and 40+ offices across four states. To commemorate our history, we put together a comprehensive timeline detailing key events that have shaped BHS over these last 150 years. We also built out an eye-catching ad campaign focused on our continuous drive to define the future of real estate. After all, our past serves as a foundation for future growth.
There is no better time than your 150th birthday to shake things up and we’ve been defining the future of real estate since our founding in 1873. The way we do business will evolve with new technologies, tastes, and lifestyles - but this campaign shows that Brown Harris Stevens’ commitment to and legacy of exceptional real estate service is here to stay.
- Bess Freedman, Chief Executive Officer
With this new campaign, we wanted to do something completely different from what Brown Harris Stevens has done in the past. Everything in these ads from the futuristic imagery to the tongue-in-cheek copy is designed to make people stop whatever they’re doing and pay attention.
- Matthew Leone, Chief Marketing Officer
The visual concepts created in this campaign are meant to be wildly imaginative to show what our homes could look like in the future but how there will always be a need for the unmatched service and counsel of a BHS Agent.
- Dan Mozeika, Executive Creative Director
