RISMEDIA, March 4, 2010—Coldwell Banker Real Estate LLC announced the signing of a master franchise agreement with Top CzechPartners Estate S.R.O. to bring the Coldwell Banker and Coldwell Banker Commercial franchise systems to the Czech Republic. The Coldwell Banker residential and commercial real estate networks now extend to 49 countries and territories worldwide on a combined basis.
Led by Petr Král, Top CzechPartners Estate S.R.O. is based in Prague. The company was founded in 2006 and has been focused on project management and land sales.
“The Coldwell Banker brand remains focused on our international growth strategy, and we are pleased to be entering the Czech Republic,” said Jim Gillespie, president and chief executive officer for Coldwell Banker Real Estate LLC. “We are impressed with Petr’s skills and capabilities to grow our brand in the Czech Republic, and we are proud to welcome him into our network.”
“The opportunity to leverage the Coldwell Banker brand in the Czech Republic is huge,” said Král. “There are more than 6,000 real estate offices in our country, yet few have an international presence. I have been in real estate since 1994, working largely with foreign investors. As we grew our business, it became apparent that partnering with a global presence made great sense. I am thrilled to join the Coldwell Banker family and look forward to working with colleagues from around the world.”
