Happy Birthday Coldwell Banker – 113 Years Young!

The Original Silicon Valley Real Estate Startup, Celebrates It’s 113th Birthday

The Coldwell Banker brand is the oldest and most established residential real estate franchise system in North America. Founded in August 26th, 1906, young entrepreneur Colbert Coldwell and was later joined by partner Benjamin Banker. 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, he 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 48 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 70,000 Canadian Home Buyers and Sellers.

Since the company’s inception in 1906, customer service has been a guiding light.

Gary & Debbie have been a part of the Coldwell Banker network since it’s merger with Canada Trust in 1992. Coldwell Banker and Gary & Debbie’s mindset are the same – customer satisfaction is first! Gary & Debbie are proud to have received the Ultimate Service(R)  award each year since the program’s conception in 1996.

Thank You From One4Another!

On May 11th, we participated in the Annual Run 4 Another, hosted by One4Another International, at Bechtel Park, Waterloo. The purpose of this run, was to raise money to help children in Uganda that require surgeries to correct club feet and other debilitating conditions. With your help, The Baverstock Team raised over $1,800; the run itself, raised over $40,000.

Message from Glenn Pascoe, co-founder of One4Another International:

Dear Gary & Debbie,

I’ve recently returned from Uganda and wanted to send along this thank you from the kids who are currently with us in the clinic for your fantastic fundraising during our recent run.

I am always overwhelmed by the needs of the children but take heart that even if we’re not able to fix the problem we are almost always able to make life at least a bit easier for children that are burdened by both the weight of poverty and disability.  Thank you for making it possible for the work of One4Another to meet the needs of the children that come to us for help.

I hope you’re having a fantastic summer so far!
