The Real Estate Pioneers
The story of Coldwell Banker is one of leadership and success. Our rich history began in San Francisco in 1906. In the time immediately before the First World War, while Colbert Coldwell and Benjamin Arthur Banker were striving to establish a real estate business, San Francisco was hardly the booming market it is today. The scrub-grown rolling dunes of the city's western half, it was agreed, would never be inhabitable. Downtown business practices were nearly as informal as they had been during the Gold Rush. Most telling of all, much of the city was still in ruins from the 1906 earthquake. During those hectic days of rebuilding, some unscrupulous businessmen took the chance to benefit financially through fraud and deception.
Coldwell and Banker were trying to make progress in an industry where, to put it bluntly, plain dealing had become optional. The two saw an opportunity to distinguish themselves by offering honest, knowledgeable and competent real estate services, bringing much-needed integrity to the profession. The exceptional standards set by these real estate pioneers, who blazed a trail that the entire industry would eventually follow, remain the benchmark of today's Coldwell Banker.
