Coldwell Banker opens new office in Aruba

OranjestadColdwell Banker has opened a new office in Aruba. The office is serving the Aruban market as a member of the Coldwell Banker organization. The new Coldwell Banker Aruba Realty is located at Noord 40 and is managed by the talented Charmaine York, a true sales professional.

It was 100 years ago, on august 27, 1906, that a 23-year old real estate agent named Colbert Coldwell began what would eventually become Coldwell Banker Real Estate Corporation. Eighteen weeks after an earthquake and fire devastated the city of San Francisco, Coldwell became acutely aware that victims of the devastation were being preyed upon by unethical businesspeople. With Benjamin Banker as his eventual partner, Coldwell helped rebuild San Francisco by attracting businesses and families to the city through the professional, honest real estate transactions they shepherded.

Now, at the company’s century mark, the oldest real estate organization of the United States is known as an industry leader and innovator, while still practicing the benchmark for outstanding customer service. The Coldwell Banker network has grown from one office in ravaged Northern California to one of the largest real estate franchise organizations and ninth largest franchisor in the world (Franchise Times) with $352.9 billion in closed sales volume and more than 127,700 sales associates working in more than 4,000 offices in 30 countries and territories.

“Colbert Coldwell and Benjamin Banker set rigorous standards for business excellence, performance and principles when they founded the company in 1906, and we in the Coldwell Banker system couldn’t be more proud to be meeting and exceeding those standards 100 years later,” said Rick Davidson, the President and Chief Operating Officer of Coldwell Banker Commercial Affiliates, Inc.

“The addition of the new Coldwell Banker Aruba Realty office will further strengthen the Coldwell Banker Real Estate Corporation (Coldwell Banker) presence in the market,” said Jim Gillespie, president and Chief Executive Officer of Coldwell Banker Real Estate Corporation. Coldwell Banker is pleased to add this new office to the network.

“Now, the locals and visitors interested in selling or buying a home on the island of Aruba will get the dedication, honesty, professionalism and necessary services in assisting them in the whole process,” said Gea and Dick Soug, the representatives of Coldwell Banker Aruba Realty.

Coldwell Banker Aruba Realty located at Noord 40, the road next to the Police station in Noord. They can be reached at 587-8086.
