REALOGY COMPLETES TRANSFORMATION TO ANYWHERE(SM)
On a strategic mission to meet consumers wherever they are in the home buying and selling journey, Anywhere rebrand represents the company's unique advantages and future ambitions
Anywhere shares now trade on the New York Stock Exchange under ticker symbol "HOUS"
MADISON, N.J. , June 9, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Anywhere Real Estate Inc. (NYSE: HOUS), a global leader in residential real estate services (formerly known as Realogy Holdings Corp.), today announced the completion of the corporate rebrand. Shares of the company's common stock began trading this morning on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) under the ticker symbol, "HOUS". No action is required by AnywhereSM shareholders regarding the name or ticker change, and the company's CUSIP number will remain unchanged.
Home to renowned real estate brands, Better Homes and Gardens® Real Estate, CENTURY 21®, Coldwell Banker®, Corcoran®, ERA®, and Sotheby's International Realty® as well as national title, settlement, and relocation companies and scaled mortgage origination and underwriting joint ventures, the Anywhere rebrand reflects a broader strategic shift for the company, which executives laid out during an Investor Day event last month. Leveraging its leading position in business segments that comprise nearly every aspect of the real estate transaction, the company has placed a strong emphasis on building a more simplified, digitized, and integrated home buying and selling experience for any consumer, anywhere.
"At Anywhere, we intend to further leverage our unique advantages – powerful agent network, leading brands, scaled core services, deep technology and data, and strong financial flexibility – to meaningfully transform one of life's most important and complex transactions," said Ryan Schneider, Anywhere president and chief executive officer. "The new Anywhere brand more boldly reflects our core purpose and company culture, and together with our trusted agents and franchise owners, we look to execute an agent-centric strategy that benefits all consumers, no matter where they may be in their home buying or selling journey."
The Anywhere rebrand modernizes the look and feel of one of the industry's leading real estate parent companies. The new logo features a memorable icon inspired by an eight-stroke asterisk, a nod to the depth of the organization, that has been modified as a sun rising above a home's roofline, symbolizing the potential that comes with a new day. The deep midnight blue and vibrant orange brand colors evoke the vast opportunity, hope, and illumination Anywhere will bring to the consumer experience. As part of today's launch, Anywhere debuted a new enterprise website, anywhere.re, which showcases the company's businesses, brands, and commitments, including product and technology, integrity, and people-first culture, which all combine to realize the company's purpose: empowering everyone's next move.
The Anywhere naming and brand development was led by multidisciplinary San Francisco-based design firm, Hybrid Design. For more information, please visit anywhere.re and sign up for alerts at ir.anywhere.re. Follow Anywhere on social media by visiting its LinkedIn, Twitter, and Instagram pages.
