RISMEDIA, April 26, 2007-Coldwell Banker Real Estate Corporation announced that eight companies joined the Coldwell Banker®System during the first quarter of 2007. Additionally, 15 existing Coldwell Banker affiliated companies expanded their operations by opening new offices through expansion or merger/acquisitions.
Coldwell Banker Mountaineer Realty in Crossville, Tennessee was one of the most recent to affiliate with the Coldwell Bankerbrand after 28 years as an independent. Broker/owner Dan Tingle and his team of nine sales associates serve a market that is one of the most affordable retirement communities in the nation according to Where to Retire magazine.
"When I bought the company in 2004 and subsequently bought a new office, my next phase was to bring in leads and generate increased awareness of our company within the community," said Tingle. "I started to explore options and spoke to local real estate professionals in the area. They all spoke well about Coldwell Banker and the brand's integrity. Our sales associates think it was a great move. The education courses have already helped and the name recognition is amazing. We've already had walk-ins from potential retirees who had used Coldwell Banker in their hometowns. So far it has been a great marriage."
