After Benjamin Banker joined as a partner, they helped rebuild San Francisco by attracting businesses and families to the city through the professional, honest real estate transactions they guided. Now, a century later, the Coldwell Banker system boasts more than 3,900 residential and commercial real estate offices and 126,000 sales associates in 29 countries and territories around the globe.
"Marking 100 years in business is an incredible milestone; it is certainly an achievement of which everyone in the Coldwell Banker system can be very proud," says Jim Gillespie, president and chief executive officer, Coldwell Banker Real Estate Corporation. "It is truly satisfying to know that for all these years, Coldwell Banker professionals have been helping families buy and sell homes, and establishing a foundation for security, stability and growth. We like to think we have been helping them achieve the American dream, and hope for another hundred years of similar success."
