The Select Realty Story | Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Select Realty - Fredericksburg, Stafford, Woodbridge VA homes for sale and real estate services in Virginia

The Select Realty Story

Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Select Realty was established in the greater Fredericksburg area in the summer of 2007, originally as a member of the Realty World Broker Network. In 2015 Select Realty became the first company outside of the rebranding Prudential Broker Network to sign a franchise agreement with Warren Buffett’s hot upstart, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices. Though our name and colors have changed, we remain the same great company with the industry’s finest agents.

Led by Principal Broker Dan Lesher, Select Realty was founded on the vision of delivering an exceptional home buying or selling experience to the clients represented. The affiliation with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices was a natural fit. The brand was inspired by world-renowned Berkshire Hathaway Inc. – Warren Buffett’s worldwide holding company – and the brands vision is crystal clear: to be the best-recognized and most highly respected homeownership services brand in the United States and beyond.

From the moment you meet Dan Lesher it is evident that he truly has a passion for real estate and delivering a great experience. Providing a level of care and attention to detail that is unparalleled in the industry is what drives Dan and Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Select Realty in everything they do.

With an agent first approach, and a unique business model that empowers their sales professionals with the systems and resources to grow their business, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Select Realty has methodically grown and increased its presence and market share along the I-95 corridor from Metro Richmond to Metro Washington since those early days  in 2007. With nearly 150 agents now occupying multiple locations, the firm continues to enjoy the culture of a small family business combined with the resources of one of the most respected brands in the world. This unique value proposition has led to sustained business growth for Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Select Realty sales professionals in all of the market areas we serve.




The company we have established, together with the powerful Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices network, exemplifies the reputation of Berkshire Hathaway - recognized as the No. 1 company in Barron’s annual ranking of the world’s 100 most respected companies.

Named to the Berkshire Elite Circle in consecutive years, 2018, 2019 and 2020, Select Realty is recognized as a Top 50 company in the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices network, and has been recognized as one of the Top Real Estate Companies in the nation by leading industry publications, The Real Trends Report and The RIS Media Power Broker Report.
