About Coldwell Banker

The Coldwell Banker brand is the oldest and most established residential real estate franchise system in North America. Founded in 1906, young entrepreneur Colbert Coldwell, later joined by partner Benjamin Banker, changed the way that people bought and sold homes. More than 100 years later, the Coldwell Banker network is one of the most trusted in the world, with a global presence across 49 countries and territories worldwide.

The Coldwell Banker name first came to Canada in 1989, in the brand’s first international expansion. Coldwell Banker became a major force in the Canadian marketplace by entering into a joint venture with Canada Trust Realty in 1992, gaining a legacy of over 70 years’ experience serving the real estate needs of Canadians from coast to coast.

In 1996, Coldwell Banker Canada pioneered Ultimate Service®, a unique customer satisfaction program and business philosophy that has earned a 98% overall satisfaction rating from more than 75,000 Canadian Home Buyers and Sellers.
