Your Perfect Partner Since 1906
The devastating San Francisco earthquake of 1906 presented young real estate agent Colbert Coldwell with a chance to provide people with honest, ethical and professional real estate services. In those difficult post earthquake times, real estate companies typically acted as buyers and resellers of property, compromising a seller’s ability to get the best price. But Coldwell’s “Brokers only” rule — and commission-based fee structure — eliminated this conflict of interest by removing the incentive to mislead sellers about the value of their property.
In 1913, a man who shared Coldwell’s values and business acumen joined the firm as a salesman. The next year, Benjamin Arthur Banker was named a partner. Their approach to the business became a model for the entire real estate industry.
Founded on a commitment to professionalism and customer service, these continue to be the core of its business philosophy today.
