About Coldwell Banker Real Estate LLC

In the wake of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, Colbert Coldwell saw how many real estate agents took advantage of victims and decided there was a need for knowledgeable, reliable agents. That same year, he founded his company and in 1914 was joined by Benjamin Arthur Banker, who became a full partner. Today, Coldwell Banker agents handle residential, luxury, resort and commercial real estate sales.
