"The original Silicon Valley real estate startup" celebrates its 110th birthday today. On this day in 1906, Coldwell Banker was founded by Colbert Coldwell and Benjamin Banker.
Young entrepreneur Colbert Coldwell established the company in the wake of that year's San Francisco earthquake and fire. Watching families rebuild their lives in the aftermath of the tragedy, Coldwell changed the way people bought and sold homes across America, building what would become one of the largest and most expansive real estate brands in the world.
Indeed, 110 years later the Coldwell Banker network has more than 3,000 offices in 47 countries. So join us in wishing Coldwell Banker a very happy birthday!
