Coldwell Banker Real Estate Corporation

History

In 1906, Colbert Coldwell, a young real estate agent, observed families trying to piece their lives together following the San Francisco earthquake. In those days, unscrupulous agents acquired property from vulnerable sellers and resold it at huge profits. Colbert saw a tremendous need for honest and knowledgeable real estate people in the business. Thus he founded a company that was to revolutionize the whole concept and philosophy of the real estate business. In 1914, Benjamin Arthur Banker joined Colbert Coldwell as a full partner. Together, they forged a tradition of integrity, exceptional service and customer satisfaction that emerged before the world as Coldwell Banker Real Estate Corporation.

i) 88% of luxury homeowners are married,

ii) 89% of luxury homebuyers request a 4-5 bedroom home,

iii) Designer kitchens are the top priority with regard to luxury home and amenities.

Despite paying a big price tag for top-of-the-line homes and amenities, 41% of these luxury homebuyers still plan on investing more money in the home by doing major renovations. While business executives of large corporations are the number one profession among luxury homeowners, entrepreneurs who own their own businesses are a close second. Other top professions (in order) of buyers of million dollar plus homes were: doctor, banker, lawyer, stockbroker, actor, musician and inventor. Two thirds of these homeowners are from the "baby-boom" generation (between the ages of 35 and 55).
