Coldwell Banker Corporate
Coldwell Banker Corporate was founded on August 27, 1906, on the heels of the devastating 1906 fire and earthquake that leveled San Francisco. A young real estate agpent, Colbert Coldwell saw the need for honest, knowledgeable real estate services to help the city rebuild. As the company grew, he hired Arthur Banker as a member of his sales staff. The two businessmen eventually formed a partnership, and in 1914 officially named the company Coldwell Banker®. Together, Coldwell and Banker forged a tradition of integrity, exceptional service and customer satisfaction that became the company’s hallmark. The company was far ahead of its time in its focus on customer service. Coldwell Banker Hedges became a franchise in 1989 and is locally owned and managed. Being a member of the Coldwell Banker family gives us the advantage of working with well over 88,000 sales associates and brokers in approximately 3200 residential offices worldwide.
We never stop moving.
