RISMEDIA, June 3, 2009-Jeffrey Wheeler, president and COO of Coldwell Banker United, REALTORS and C.J. Crankshaw, owner of Century 21 Southern Homes, announced today that Southern Homes will become a part of Coldwell Banker United, Realtors.
The two companies will combine market share and will have more than 145 agents serving the Greater Charleston area. Southern Homes has 45 agents in its Goose Creek office. Coldwell Banker currently has 100 agents collectively in the Summerville, West Ashley and Mount Pleasant offices.
Tom Martin, senior vice president for Coldwell Banker United, Realtors, said while many offices and companies are pulling back, Coldwell Banker is pushing forward with expansion and growth plans. “When two powerhouse brands combine market share and streamline resources, we are able to expedite our plans for growth in the greater Charleston area,” said Martin. “CJ Crankshaw has built a strong company with highly professional agents. We are very proud to be affiliated with this company and are confident that this move will enable us to provide increased and extended service to our customers. Combining these companies makes perfect sense from both an economic and strategic perspective. It will also allow us to take advantage of synergies in relocation, accounting, and education.”
