Coldwell Banker(R) Continues to Grow its Franchise Network

Six Companies Joined System in Second Quarter; 15 Affiliated Companies Grew Through Mergers and Acquisitions

September 16, 2008 // Franchising.com // PARSIPPANY, N.J. — Coldwell Banker Real Estate LLC announced today that six residential real estate brokerage companies joined the Coldwell Banker® system during the second quarter of 2008. Additionally, 15 existing Coldwell Banker affiliated companies grew their operations through expansion or mergers and acquisitions.

Two companies joined the Coldwell Banker system from the Phoenix, Ariz., area, including Coldwell Banker Trails and Paths Premier Properties in Mesa. The 12-year-old firm, headed by husband-wife team Ron and Debbie Brown, grew to 30 sales associates who specialized in the high end market prior to joining Coldwell Banker.

"We got to a point where we couldn't grow anymore without aligning with a national brand," Ron Brown said. "For us, the decision to join Coldwell Banker was easy. Coldwell Banker has the strongest name in the industry and without a doubt the best marketing platform led by coldwellbanker.com. The Coldwell Banker Previews International® program was critical to us so we could better service current and future $1 million and up buyers and sellers. In four months with the brand, we increased our size by 12 incredibly seasoned, mature and excellent agents who were drawn to Coldwell Banker and Coldwell Banker Previews International marketing abilities.

"It is hard for independents to compete," continued Brown. "Consumers have a natural tendency to want a notable brand. Now we have that. Because of our affiliation with Coldwell Banker, we can now offer the consumer more than we could before. Sellers are benefitting because we are now able to reach a much greater audience with Coldwell Banker."
