The Coldwell Banker® brand was founded in 1906 when Colbert Coldwell, a young real estate sales associate, observed families trying to piece their lives and homes together following the disastrous San Francisco earthquake.
Disapproving of unscrupulous sales associates who acquired property from vulnerable sellers and then resold it at huge profits, and seeing a need for honest, knowledgeable real estate professionals, he formed his own company.
The new company was based on a revolutionary philosophy: the client’s best interest above all. In 1914, Arthur Banker, another real estate professional, joined Colbert Coldwell as a full partner. 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.
Since 2003, the Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate CARES foundation has raised more than $3.5 million for a wide array of nonprofit educational, health, welfare, environmental and cultural arts organizations in our communities. Throughout Florida, our team raises funds through donations from sales commissions, employee payroll deductions, golf tournaments, auctions, bowl-a-thons and other events. Our associates and employees also support local charities by being “hands-on,” from cooking meals and working on renovation projects to building homes.
Additionally, we’ve built 23 Habitat for Humanity homes statewide. Currently, we support Ronald McDonald House Charities, which assists families of critically ill or injured hospitalized children, as our statewide initiative.
