Coldwell Banker takes you “Home” in a series of new commercials.

Thursday, March 20, 2014

Coldwell Banker recently celebrated the release of two new national television commercials. The first of the two spots Home Sweet Home features music from the hit 80’s Hair Band Mötley Crüe and was premiered at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards Show.

Coldwell Banker Real Estate‘s senior vice president of marketing Sean Blankenship says “[The images in the ad] convey how each of us from all walks of life experience that feeling of coming home.”

He adds, “I say it’s time we all take a moment and reflect on what ‘Home’ truly means. A place of celebration.  A monument of great memories. A moment of tribute to those who help protect our home every day! That is home sweet home.”

 

“The second of the two ads Your Home features the powerful voice-narration of Tom Selleck and was premiered at the 86th Annual Oscar Awards.

“Your Home is the fourth commercial in our series showcasing the real value of home, which is far more than just a financial investment,” said Sean Blankenship, senior vice president, marketing for Coldwell Banker Real Estate LLC. “The Oscars are perfectly timed to reach consumers with our message of how home plays a role in the story of our lives while also aligning with the spring home buying and selling season.  It’s also fitting that the Oscars will pay homage to the 75th anniversary of ‘The Wizard of Oz’ and Judy Garland’s classic line, ‘There’s no place like home.’”

Dialogue from Vice President and General Manager, Margaret Galecki.

Listing Agent of the Year Award for 2013 
"The Listing Agent of the Year and the Listing Team award is given to the agent or team that had the highest number of new listings in the year. We call it “Signs in the yard”… and it is signs on the Internet too.  This Listing Agent of the year for 2013 agent provided lots of signs – once again almost 10% of all of the company’s listings units for Coldwell Banker Townside last year. I’d like to congratulate Our Listing Agent of the Year,"

 
Paul DiMaio

 

Top Listing Team Award 2013
"For having the most signs in yards in 2013, the Listing Team of the Year award goes to The Eggleston Team,"

 
The Eggleston Team - Mike Eggleston and Tommy Clapp

 

Sales Agent of the Year
"The Sales agent of the Year has not been in the business very long, and has worked hard to develop the personal relationships that have generated a substantial book of business. But it’s not only corporate connections, this agent has a network of many happy clients who continue to feed his growing business with repeat business and buyer referrals. In just three years - Silver, Gold, now Diamond level production. Happy clients generate more happy clients and based on his success, we’re looking forward to more happy clients in the future. For the highest closed sales volume for buyer driven sales, we recognize as Sales Agent of the Year"
 
Brian Juanarena

 

Sales Team of the Year
"This Sales Team of the Year goes to the team which had the highest selling volume for the year. Mike and Tommy continue to break records. They do this not only to validate their number one position in sales, reputation, and professionalism, but to continually enhance the reputation of the Coldwell Banker Townside office regionally, nationally, and within the Coldwell Banker franchise. Letters flow in weekly singing the praises for their extensive knowledge, unrivaled service, and promises of more business. For achieving the top volume in buyer driven sales, the Sales Team of the Year goes to,
 
The Eggleston Team – Mike Eggleston and Tommy Clapp

 

Agent of the Year
"I don’t think he likes it, but I do talk about our Agent of the Year in terms of learning how to adapt to the market. Things were tough on everybody for a couple of years, and this agent adapted to the changing market, made a choice to evolve, and because of his hard work and of course his charming personality, excelled yet another year earning the Double Diamond distinction. He’s an unassuming guy, almost quiet, except in the office,  and a little bit sassy too, but truly one of the most generous people I’ve ever met. It serves him well in his real estate career. He has a high level of loyalty from many very satisfied clients. Much of his business is repeat business from those satisfied clients. His clients’ say he is knowledgeable, professional, a gentleman, resourceful, dependable, and his customer service is unparalleled. Every year, when I give an award to this agent, he asks me if I calculated things right. Actually, he questions a lot of things I do… but for tonight, I’m right. First RATE Wayne. For the highest sales volume from closed listings and sales the Coldwell Banker Townside Agent of the Year for 2013 is,"

 
Wayne Elliott

 

Team of the Year
"I think I say this at every year-end presentation, teams are best when 1 + 1 equals more than 2. And our team of the year has created a system and a relationship  that really works and the sum of their parts isn’t in any normal math book. The sum of the their commitment and contribution to the company is considerably more than 1+1 and we recognize that success tonight as we award them the 2013 Team of the Year. Team of the Year is,
 
The Eggleston Team – Mike Eggleston and Tommy Clapp

Part 1: 2013 Special Recognition Awards

Wednesday, March 05, 2014

2013 was a banner year for Coldwell Banker Townside, but it would not have been possible without the tireless work of our outstanding team of REALTORS®. Over the course of the next few days we will be featuring our 2013 Agent Award Winners. Today's segment will feature the 2013 Special Recognition Award Winners.

Dialogue from Vice President and General Manager, Margaret Galecki.

Rookie of  the Year

"Our Rookie of the Year undoubtedly doesn’t like being called a rookie at anything and truthfully doesn’t act like a rookie. He has actually been licensed for 23 years, but began his training with me late in 2012. In 2013, this agent earned great praise from his clients for his advice, particularly his mastery of spreadsheets and clear explanation of processes, and finished the year with production that not only earned him an office but also the distinction of Rookie of the Year." — Congratulations!

Spirit Award

"[The Spirit Award] awarded to the agent who best displays personal energy and commitment to Coldwell Banker Townside." Investment in himself with aggressive prospecting, focused business planning, commitment to Coldwell Banker with attendance at the Coldwell Banker sales rally, completion of the Coldwell Banker Boost program and also his time investment in other business building tools and webinars. Not to mention earning his GRI early in the year. We look forward to many more years of success and spirit from this agent. This year's recipient of the Spirit Award is...

True Grit Award

This year, there were many standouts for various reasons, but in discussions with staff, this agent’s name kept coming up. We thought about the word steady, slow and steady – the “tortoise” award, not so good, and then the nautical “steady as she goes,” steady and careful was close, but still not quite right. Steady as you goes might work, but we liked to think of it as “Grit.”

Grit is a positive trait based on an individual’s passion for a particular long-term goal coupled with a motivation to achieve their objective. Commonly associated with "perseverance," "hardiness," "resilience," "conscientiousness." "Grit allows a person to persist in repetitive, tedious or frustrating behaviors that are necessary for success."  Now doesn’t that describe a real estate agent?

This year’s most notable award for 2013 is the “TRUE GRIT” Award – Awarded to...

Arthur Cennamo

For his "GRIT" as well as his top producing year since coming to Coldwell Banker Townside.

Setting the Standard Award

We feel that recognition by one’s peers is a high honor so we created the “Setting the Standard” award two years ago to let you do just that. The description of this award is “the agent who personifies professionalism, ethics, and commitment to the real estate profession.”  We asked you to vote for the agent who you felt displayed any one of the following characteristics, a combination of characteristics that you value such as character, production, educational achievement, ethics, personality, commitment to the real estate profession.

But of course you can never do this the easy way, but I like the way this turned out. This truly was a representation of the whole office as so many of you took the time to consider this award and you chose two agents equally to represent Coldwell Banker Townside in Setting the Standard. There were similarities in the way you described each agent, but differences too. It’s clear you value hard work in your fellow agents. These are just some of the comments I received about this year’s Setting the Standard honorees. Here is how you described one of this year’s Setting the Standard award recipients –The first honoree is “professional, considerate, detailed, helpful, creative, hardworking, knowledgeable, honest, trustworthy, humble.”  “Goes out of her way. Is honest and has high ethical standards.” A true team player to the entire CBT organization with a positive outlook and work ethic. And this agent  “can usually find humor in difficult situations, always seems positive, and is willing to help fellow agents.”

 

Sandy Grant

“And about your other choice for Setting the Standard you described: "This agent navigates through the sales process like a well-seasoned agent and deserves recognition for their abilities and hard work." "This agent is kind, ethical, giving, and has a great sense of humor, which all go a long way in being a top real estate agent." "This agent is extremely busy but always has time to talk with others. The way this agent shows sincere interest in others is admirable." I think the fact that this agent has continuously had listings and sales shows that professionalism, knowledge and reputation continually bring business. This agent has worked very hard…  and after three short years is finally reaping the benefit of all the hard work. This agent is very professional and knowledgeable and is a great asset to CBT. We think so, and you all do too."

Dedication Ceremony for the New High Schools in Montgomery County

Friday, October 04, 2013

Two years of construction ­— and two years of nail-biting by school administrators ­— have come to a close in Montgomery County.
The results of an ambitious and expensive plan to simultaneously build two new high schools were visible in Riner and Blacksburg: gleaming roofs, shining windows, brick and metal-wrapped walls, and gangs of workers hurried to complete everything before the the start of classes in September.
The new schools on Prices Fork Road in Blacksburg and Virginia 8 in Riner are different in size and many details, but both contain much of the new technology the county is pushing in its schools. Classrooms are equipped with amplification systems to make teachers more audible, and document cameras to project images.
In Blacksburg, lounge like “collaboration areas” offer students a place to work on projects outside of classrooms. In Riner, advanced skylights bring natural light into the two gyms, the cafeteria and other spaces.
You can check the schools out first hand at their Dedication Ceremony

Blacksburg High School: Sunday, October 6th - 2pm 
3401 Bruin Lane, in Blacksburg

Auburn High School: Sunday, October 13  - 3pm
1650 Auburn School Drive, Riner
