The J.D.

Power and Associates for the best customer satisfaction with repeat home buyers and sellers,” said Jim Gillespie, president and chief executive officer of Coldwell Banker Real Estate Corp. “It speaks volumes that consumers continue to have positive experiences with Coldwell Banker. We are proud of the professionalism and hard work of the system’s sales associates who play an integral role in this top ranking.”

According to Gillespie, strong customer service is the key to securing repeat business. “Real estate is a service industry. Great success can only come through great service. The consumer has shown they enjoy working with Coldwell Banker offices and sales associates, and that is why they come back to Coldwell Banker time and time again.”
