Coldwell Banker is the largest real estate franchise in the world and a top 10 franchise behind giants such as McDonalds and Wendy’s. The Coldwell Banker brand was founded in 1906 in San Francisco, USA and today is represented worldwide in 28 countries with 4000 offices and 127,000 sales associates on all the continents.
Relatively new in Australia Coldwell Banker is quickly moving to become a major player in the booming Australian property market.
With offices already dotted around the country Western Australia has now joined the Master Franchise with an agency in Perth “Coldwell Banker Pro Property” with more to come.
They are able to tap into the wealth of experience that comes only with being connected to such a large global corporation.
A typical Coldwell Banker real estate agent has access to a database of fellow agents across the world which offers an inter office referral system. As well as a personal Database system that can be accessed from any computer in the world.
There have already been many sales in the Australian directly coming from International agent referrals from places like the U.S., Singapore and Dubai. This linked with the I.T. systems and training procedures already part of a culture etched out from a 100 years of operations, gives Coldwell Banker an almost unfair advantage of becoming a powerhouse brand in the Australian market as it already has in the U.S.
The days of the local agent sticking a sign in the ground, a photo in the window and waiting for a buyer to walk past one of them are quickly disappearing like the local corner store and suburban Bank.
The ability to look for buyers and investors globally is surely the way of the future and with this in mind, large internationally branded and recognised franchises like Coldwell Banker will be at the forefront of this revolution in real estate.
